PlanetBase and other games

This is a game that I just recently got myself for my birthday last weekend and I am absolutely 100% completely ADDICTED to it! You land on a planet and you build your base/city and it's so cool that I fell in love with it the first time I played it. Although I must admit here lately I have a habit of going on YouTube and checking out actual game-play videos of the games that I'm interested in so I know what its like and if its really interesting to me or if its something that I don't like etc. Because sometimes just reading what they are and actually "seeing" what they are can be completely not what you think it is.

So that is what I've been doing lately when I see or hear of a game that is interesting to me. And I'm also (maybe if I can figure out how too??) considering doing my own game videos. I would absolutely love to share some of my favorite games that I like to play now and again.

My favorite types of games are the city-building ones such as Sim City which I haven't played in awhile but I love it! I also love Sims 4 but refuse to buy any of the "expansions" for full price! I will wait until they have a sale and get them for 1/2 price or less! And then I like games like Guild II Renaissance which is an awesome game! I am completely ADDICTED to it as well!! When I get on that one and play I swear it will seem like an hour and I'll look at the time and it will be late at night or early in the morning! Yep time can get away from me now and again!

So I might look more into the doing the videos of the games that I play just to share and do things. I love bragging about them. I'm not fantastic at them but, I like to think that I'm pretty good at some of them :)

Banished is another one of my favorites that I can't seem to get enough of. It's like the game that just came out actually today the 25th called Villagers. And I've watched gameplay and I love it b/c it does remind me of Banished but, in another sense I hear and see the reviews that some aren't all that great and say that its a rip off crappier version of Banished etc. So the reviews are really mixed.

And I'm going to try a game or rather a series of games called "Anno" they have several actually and I'm starting with Anno 1404. I'm actually waiting for it to download right now...taking a little while so it must be a bigger game as it usually doesn't take too long for games to download. 

I'm debating back and forth with myself on whether or not to get Villagers. I love the game-play regardless of a few snags/bugs etc. I am wanting so badly (noticed this game a few weeks back and then I knew or rather found out that it would be released today and I was going to get it for myself as my birthday present but being that I was completely impatient and I was considering a different type so to speak of game for me (space building) I decided to go ahead and get it and ended up loving it so now I'm to the point of debating with myself on rather I should or need the game Villagers and after reading the mixed reviews that just makes me question it more but, on the other hand I've gotten games before where it was negative or mixed reviews and I ended up liking it so it doesn't always pay to read and decide on others thoughts at least on games. So we will see but I will make up my mind this weekend...one way or the other!

Hobbies and time to Relax


So tonight while I'm sitting here working (very slllooooow night) so I decided to not worry so much about doing other work related things while waiting on calls to come in and decided to think of instead what do I want to do that is relaxing?

Well for me, sometimes its a nice long relaxing bath and other times its just relaxing vegging out on the couch watching HGTV and LMN all day! But this time I'm into playing games. I love computer games, I like playstation 3 games as well but right now I'm more into playing my computer games since I can sit in here and put on the headset turn up the Spotify playlist and just relax for awhile listening to music and losing myself in a game.

What do you do to relax and get away from the everyday life of stress and things? Do you like to play games? Read? Share your relaxing things with me :)
I would love to go and lay in that hammock and relax on the beach. One of these days we will but, for now its just a growing list of I want too and will do one day :)

I absolutely LOVE to actually jump in the car and go for a drive to I don't know and don't care where at t times as well but, since at the moment that isn't happening I'll settle for my computer games or my playstation 3 games. Road trips are awesome though and they will be coming soon! My game plan on Road Trips this year is once a month!

I'm going to do another post on what kinds of games I love to play and relax on!

Families of prisoners are the forgotten victims....


This is something that I shared on my Prison Wives Unite Fanpage on Facebook as well but I wanted to share it on here as well and see if anyone else would like to comment and share an opinion, so please feel free to comment...

So true!!!! We are the ones out here and yes we have our freedoms BUT we are also the ones that have everything put on us, we have to manage all the money, the bills, the kids, the job/work and not forget we have to also take care of our loved one on the inside by putting money on the phone so we can keep in touch, putting money on the books so they can enjoy a little bit of things such as essentials like soap and shampoo etc and let's not forget the visits, the money to get there and visit and the gas and money it takes to do those things....I believe that our country should do more of each individual persons case differently not just because they fall in this or that category do this much time etc. Because for some of us they are first time offenders and yet they get treated as if they have been in trouble a ton of times...its just NOT fair how our society looks down on people and the families...and I know that it's probably never going to really change because that's just the way people are and its okay everyone has an opinion but unless you've been there and done that you don't know the circumstances and everyone's situation is different...I feel for ALL the families that have a loved one in prison...you are a strong person and can make it...just keep pushing and not only for you and or your family/kids etc but because that loved one in there feels helpless not being able to help and it saddens me every time I hear my husband tell me those words...breaks my heart b/c he's a good person who doesn't deserve all of what he's getting...yes he made a mistake and yes we are all humans who make mistakes but for some that actually are sorry and for those that haven't ever been in trouble before they aren't a bad person, they just made a stupid decision but, should that be taken out on the family or should the family as victims be forgotten? I don't think so....Just my opinion and some might agree and others might disagree and that's okay...I wish you all the best regardless...

MIA for awhile but now I'm back!


So it's no secret that I've been MIA for a little while and the truth is that I've been working it seems like non-stop to get things where I want them to be but, as we all know I'm sure things don't always go and work out the way that you want or need them too right? So with that being said I have decided to NOT neglect my blog any further!!! I am getting back into my blogging and I am going to try my best to not only be better at what I do with my blog but to stay up to date on here and get more active and involved in things.

As you all probably know I'm a woman who just had a birthday....nope not saying my age! LOL...let's just say I am 40 ish and I want to stay that way! I am a strong and very independent woman that is on my own and loving it! Yes, its challenging at times but, really what would life be without a few challenges for us thrown into the mix? It'd be boring that's for sure!!

I am a very strong and Independent woman that works from home and makes my living working from home and no its not a thing to where I "sell things" or I'm involved in a pyramid scheme thing and have to bring others into the business etc. Not saying there is anything wrong with that, if you are that talented and good at it then go for it! Me, on the other hand I am a Customer Service Agent/Admin/RE Assistant. And I've been doing those things for years and its something that I fell in love with years ago and just kept on it and now I'm where I make my living from working out of my home office and take care of myself doing what I love - working from home doing Admin and CSR work.

So moving on....I look forward to writing more and getting back into the swing of things. I have a ton on my mind! Always have tons on my mind!! Yes I overdo my thinking sometimes and the stress gets to me but that's just a part of life, stress. Either way I am very thankful, grateful and appreciative of everything that I have in my life and everyone that I have in my life. I don't have much "family-blood" that I get along with, I've been known as the "black sheep of the family" so they can go on and live there lives without me and my kids and husband and my friends that are and have been there for me since as far back as I can remember. Its always been my friends that have had my back with no questions asked! They know me and still love me and don't judge me! All of my family wasn't that difficult with me, but, sadly all that was on my side and beside me and loved me regardless of things they are looking down on me watching over me and my own family and friends now. I miss them everyday! Grandpa, Uncle Bobby and my step-dad Bo that I will forever call my dad since he's the only dad that I've ever met and been around and he treated me like his own daughter. Love them with all my heart and miss them each dearly!! 

Love the ones in your life that are there for you daily and that are by your side and stand not only beside you but also behind you at times so that if or when you fall they are there to catch you, help you back up on your feet and stand strong again! Don't let the ones that put you down have the joy and privilege of being in your life! They are the ones that will miss out, that is their choice so leave them to it! They choose to be negative and put you down then they can go sulk somewhere else but, don't let them bring you down, you deserve so much better!!

Hugs, wishing you all best of life, health and a great rest of the year!!
