More wintry mix on the way! UGH!

I am seriously beginning to wonder if the kids will even go back next week?! We are supposed to be getting more of the wintry mix crap tonight and all day long tomorrow. A mixture of ice/rain/snow..oh what fun that is going to be on top of all the crap that we have gotten right now. Then on Monday and Tuesday sunny high in the low 40s and then on Wednesday or rather the night before, its supposed to snow again!!! And all day long Wednesday...starting the night before!! Omg is this crap ever going to end?? It was ok the first day or two but now its getting old really really fast!!   

And the Snow and Cold continues....

Didn't get Refund!!

So mad and freaking frustrated and irritated!!! So we didn't get the refund that we were expecting! Very frustrating when you were thinking that you were going to get this much money and be able to get the kids things and pay back my mom and do what we needed to do and get caught up more on bills etc. Nope that didn't happen!! So this month along with this year at this moment really just sucks to say the least. I am sure that it will get better, but right now at this moment ...... It sucks! 

First weekend in Feb. 2011

So I just realized that this is the first weekend in February for 2011. Wow how this year has flown by already. And this is the 2nd snow of this year!! My kids haven't been to school in February yet! Isn't that just crazy that probably most of the US hasn't been to school this month so far! We got a couple of inches of snow and ice and were supposed to be getting more tonight..fun!

Pogo!!

I use to play Pogo every night when I needed to relax and then slowly I just stopped playing it. Well I am back and trying to play on there maybe a few times a week to just relax and get the badges. I love the badges. I use to buy all the badge books too. I had them all and then just stopped. I'm thinking of buying some of them again. Does anyone else out there play pogo and if so what are your favorite games?  

The bachelor was unbelievable tonight!!!

I don't know what everyone else thinks about the show now, but I think that it was freaking unbelievable tonight!! I can't get over him and Michelle!! What in the world does he see in that psycho woman?? I mean really she sits there and grabs his face and tells him to hush and not say a word and then just the body language that she had with him..just ewe! I can't stand her!! And then he goes and picks her freaking first for the roses!! OMG seriously is he really thinking about things and using his brain or no??!I just think that its crazy that he let others go that he didn't even get a chance to get to know and yet he keeps her around..is that for publicity or something?? I mean he has said several times that he can see him and so and so as a wife but I don't think that I have ever heard him say that to her or about her. And him and Ashley and him and Emily and even Shantel have a bigger and better connection then him and that witch michelle..ick! 

Winter Storm on its way!! Fun!!!

So the kids come home today after school and the first words out of their mouths is mom they warned us this morning that we could be out of school tomorrow. Wonderful just what I wanted to hear!! The weather had said that it was supposed to of been crappy with the wintry mix on Saturday night but it didn't do anything so now they are saying that its going to do it tonight starting at 2am there is a 100% chance of rain/sleet/etc tonight through whenever tomorrow. So that's that. It was 50 here today and over the weekend it was in the low 70s and now its supposed to get to like 17 and highs in the 20s or so if were lucky! Everybody is panicking and going out and getting all kinds of stuff to be prepared for the storm that's coming. I hope that everyone is ok and it turns out to not be that crazy out like they think. I was planning on getting out tonight and going to Wally world and getting a few things and then off to the casino since February is Leon's anniversary month a…

Bachelor Tonight!!

oh I am SO addicted to the Bachelor!!!!!! I can't wait for it to come on and yes so I can holler at the tv and tell him to send that chic Michelle HOME!!! I don't like her and her attitude just really isn't that great or flattering!! I still don't understand why he has kept her around this long..doesn't look to me like they have any sparks or anything like that going on while him and Emily and Ashley they look cute together and you can tell that their is something there....we will see tonight what happens!! oh yea and this is the night that Michelle was on the previews and telling him "now lets go send some girls home!" or something like that!! Who the hell does she think she is??? Really??? ICK! She isn't even half as pretty as the girls that he freaking sent home!!


I hope that he gets it together tonight and sends her packing!!!!

Last day of January already!

So this is the last day of January. Wow already! This month has really flown by. So the new month is around the corner. I am planning for it to be a great month and I will have a great rest of the year. Great things are going to happen in the upcoming months, especially February and March. I am looking forward to the rest of the year now for sure. This year is for changes and I am making them, little by little each and every day...change is a good thing, change can be for the best and that's what I am hoping for..the best for my kids and myself. And I believe that things happen for a reason. I went to the store the other day I think it was Thursday evening and the car that I had fallen for and wanted so bad...already gone! So I guess that wasn't meant to be. So I am going to give my van a good oil change and tune up soon probably Friday morning while I'm shopping at Wally world and then if I want to take any long trips and am not too sure about the van..I will just rent a car…

Weather has been crazy lately!

The weatherman said Saturday night was going to be rain/sleet/ice/snow all that crap but nope didn't happen b/c yesterday was 70s or so.

LOL Tonight around 6 its supposed to start the raining/ice crap and then tomorrow the high is freaking 17!!!!! YIKES!!!

Blog Dare - How I've done on The Blog Dare.

How are you doing on The Blog Dare?  Did you blog each day?  Did you need a daily prompt?  Were you able to come up with post ideas on your own?  How do you think you'll do the rest of the year?


I am doing ok on it..had to catch up a time or two. I did blog most every day. Yes having the daily prompts was nice. Sometimes I was able to come up with my own ideas. I think that the rest of the year will go by smoother then this month. This month was stressful to say the least!

How can you make so little yet be told to pay in $1000??!

I don't get it...when you have kids and you file your taxes if you not in the high middle class or rich high class and your just an average person working your butt off to make sure that the mortgage and bills get paid then you shouldn't have to pay in a $1,000!!! That's just crap. I mean he's paying child support, paying a mortgage and all the bills and goodness knows what else going out and not to mention until last year or so he was paying hundreds a week for child care and now he can't even get EIC...that's just wrong to me. I mean he paid in through out the year and basically because he working a part time second job on the weekends only he's making too much to get EIC now and now he has to pay in...ugh just doesn't seem right but what can you do but just pay it...dang! 

Blog Dare - If I had one month to live, I would do….

What would you do if you knew that you only had one month left?


There is a lot that I would want to do. I would want to travel around and show my kids places that they should see and that I want to see and I would talk to each of them and tell them to never take anyone or anything for granted and if you love someone, tell them, let them know, don't keep it to yourself. Just tell them how you feel. I would tell the special someone in my life how much I love him and always have. He knows it but I would tell him again and hope that we could have at least a weekend together. sad to think about things like that ...

So I chose SoyLicious Candles as one of my businesses

So I chose SoyLicious Candles as one of the businesses I am going to get into. I enjoy working from home and figured I would choose 1-3 businesses to get into and see how they do. I am looking into joining Melaleuca through a lady that I found last week, waiting until Friday to get in and start the ordering and all that. And I am looking into Avon too since I have always been interested in it but never became a rep for them. There are still a few more that I am looking into but those are my top ones. I love candles so I figured that SoyLicious would be a good one. It just cost $19 to start and then you can order $30 a month in things or you can just pay the $10 to keep active...so that is good incase one month you just don't need or want any extra candles or anything. If you have a business that you want me to look into, email me or leave me a comment with your info and or link or whatever and I will look into it. Tax time is the best time to get into things and then hopefully in a…

Weekend flying by....

The weekend just flew on by like there was no tomorrow. I can't believe that its the last weekend in January and soon to be February!! Really where did this month go too? And next month is even shorter being only 28 days...this year is going to go by pretty fast. Its going to be a great year..I know it is.. I am making changes in my life this year and its for the best. I am to the point of I have lived in a loveless marriage for long enough, its time for me to move on and get on with life. Why should I stay and just deal with it or just put up with it because of the kids. The kids are all teenagers now except for my youngest whose 12 and they all know and understand that me and their father..well me no longer loves him. I don't say it, I don't even like it when he's home that much. I like it with just me and the kids home. I enjoy the time spent with just me and the kids. I want us to go out and have fun and do things. He just wants to sit on his butt in front of the PC…
