One more week until Spring!!

Its only one more week exactly until it’s the official first day of Spring!!! Finally!! I don’t like the cold winters, I am so ready for some nice Spring weather.

World of Warcraft, Diablo or Guild Wars?

I have played each of these games. They are all fun in their own ways. The best thing about Diablo and Guild Wars is that they are free to play online once you buy the game. But with World of Warcraft even after you buy the game, you have to pay a subscription cost every month of $15 or more if they have gone up since I have played. Right now I am on a 10 day free trial just goofing off playing and relaxing. I love the role playing games. I can’t wait until the end of this year when they have Diablo 3 coming out and also Guild Wars 2 coming out. both of the trailers and things that I have seen on them look awesome and I can’t wait to get them and its perfect timing, right before Christmas!

Do you Skype?

I have been a member of skype for a few years. It’s a great way to stay in touch with family, friends and even business associates. If you both have skype then you can call them for free and also do video calls which are pretty good when you want to see face to face. Skype is free to download and sign up. My id on there is Lisa_2900 so if you’re a member, add me sometime if you like. www.skype.com have a great evening everyone.

Don’t forget to Spring Forward tonight

Don’t forget that we need to spring the clocks forward one hour tonight. I don’t know about this time change, I have mixed feelings about it, sometimes I just wish that they would leave things alone and let the time just be there and be done with it and stop deciding when to move forward or back or whatever. It can be a pain in the neck if you don’t get reminded enough and then go to bed and forget and wake up later then you thought because Springing forward is us losing an hour of sleep! Fun!

To all of my blog followers and my twitter followers

Thank you so much for choosing to follow me. I appreciate each of you following me on here and or on twitter too. I love blogging and have been doing it a lot on a regular basis here lately again. I had taken a break from it and came right back to it. My regret is that I wish that I wouldn’t of wasted my time (somewhat) on myspace blogging on there when I could have been doing all of my blogging right here the whole time…hmm oh well live and learn.I will follow you back if I know that your following me. Every time that I get a message saying I have someone new following me on twitter I go there and follow them back. So if your following me and I’m not following you back, let me know, leave me a comment and I will follow you back.thank you so much and have a great day

Windows Live Writer

So I thought that it was cool when I figured out how to blog from my email, well today I learned something else new and great I think, I can post from this Windows Live Writer that is with the windows 7. I never paid much attention to the menus and things that was at the top of the screen and still are every time I look at my desktop, never paid them any mind and then I thought hmm why not click on one lol and I clicked on it and I have learned that I can blog from it! Isn’t that just a cool thing?? LOL well it is too me at least. I love learning new things. And yes the littlest things just seem to make my day these days!

A nice day relaxing :)

Today has been a nice and relaxing day so far. The kids are actually being have and not griping or hollering or pestering! That’s a great start to the very long upcoming week were going to have. I can’t believe that its Spring Break time already!!Wow this year is really flying on by! So the kids are being have…for now! And I have my strawberry daiquiri standing by! LOL…Its so nice outside today 75 and beautiful. Its supposed to storm tomorrow but at least its nice out today and the kids were enjoying it half the day, can’t keep them outside all day to save our lives!Have a great rest of the weekend everyone.

Recipes

I am looking for new, quick and easy recipes for a family of 6. If anyone has any ideas or wants to share some sites that they use for recipes etc please leave a comment and share. I'm having a really tough time coming up with new ideas and things that the kids will like. Were on a pretty tight budget and with me clipping coupons now like a nut, I need some recipes to go along with it! Anything is a great start...share away please!! Much thanks

Coupon Queen!

So I have decided to change the way that I go to the stores and buy things. I figure that I better get into a routine with the price of things going up up up and especially with having 3 teens and one pre-teen to feed on a tight budget something has got to give!! So I am going to be a coupon cutting Queen!! Not only am I going to be a coupon printing/cutting queen but I am going to be looking for some new quick and easy recipes to try on the kids too. I have somewhat picky kids. My only daughter is just like me and loves her veggies so we have no problem with her eating veggies but boy the boys are another story!! They act like any of the veggies are poisonous and just won't eat them! Crazy boys! So anyway I have decided to take a different approach on things and have decided that they are going to try new things and eat it or its a sandwich! Because this I don't like that make me something else has got to end! Sometimes when I make stew, me, my daughter and hubby are the only …

Are New York City Horse Carriages Taking YOU for a Ride?

I haven't been on a horse drawn carriage in a very very long time. I believe the last time was when I was a little girl. To read about the way that these horses are treated is horrible! I don't know why people insist on mistreating animals! I love animals and there is no way that I would mistreat or put an animal in harms way and make them work long and hard hours like they are being done and treated.


You can click on the title of this blog or here and go read the article for yourself and see what we all can do to help stop treating the animals like they are. Its sad and heartbreaking and I won't be riding a horse drawn carriage ever again because I don't want to think about what the horse has been put through and or what they will be put through.

Defund Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood - not what I thought it was!!

So I just saw this on one of my friends walls on facebook and thought that I would watch it, glad that I did because its changed my thoughts about "planned parenthood" I didn't know too much about it, never been involved with it myself but I have heard of it and thought that it was good thing..little did I know the way that they truly are! Wow and this is just one case/story...wonder how many more are out there??? Watch the video and make your own decision on what you think about it. Watch it above and see what you think for yourself.



Earthquake and Tsunami devastation hits Japan!!

I have already wrote about this on my facebook but I figured I would go ahead and blog about it on here too. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to everyone there in Japan that is affected by the mass devastation that has happened to them.


Don't get me wrong, I feel for them and I hope that they can get through this massive devastation, I am just in such an irritated and frustrated mood today that I don't understand how we (the US) can afford to send millions and billions of dollars to all these other countries and help those people when we (the US) have homeless people on the streets, kids starving and all sorts of other crap going on over here in our own country yet OUR PRESIDENT vows to help them!! I understand wanting to help others don't get me wrong, I just don't understand how our country can be in a recession and all this and still be able to afford to send millions and billions of dollars to those countries (I am referring to Haiti and Japan) and not be able …

Sun Drop

While I was at Wal-Mart earlier this morning, they had a huge thing full of little 12 fl oz of Sun Drop sodas, 2 for $1 so I grabbed one and tried it..it was pretty good. Reminded me of Sprite at first taste, I will have to get more of them because I enjoyed it.

Tonight is going tooo sllloooowwww!

I swear it seems as though tonight is just going at a snail's pace! Or perhaps even slower then that! I am so ready for the weekend!! I am going to be getting a bigger bottle of rum and maybe even a 2nd bottle of my strawberry stuff for my strawberry daiquiri mix! the kids are out ALL next week for Spring Break!! Already?! So that is a stress on my shoulders. I guess that I am thankful that my training got put off until the end of the month instead of starting next week as planned. So I have another couple of weeks to wait for that so at least that will be ok. I just want to start the training, the faster we start the faster I get to take calls and get some money coming in. Its good money, great money actually since I get a min of 35-40 hours and can work unlimited each week and I get more then hubby working haha! Its just a matter of going through 4 weeks of billing training and then a week of calls and then 3 weeks of technical training...ugh! I can do it..will be fi…

GA Bill an outrage to prosecute mother that have miscarriages!!!

I really just don't understand how the hell this thing could of made it past someone's mind!! I don't know how they could of even of though of it? How outrageous to put something like this out there to where pregnant women already have tons of things to worry about but now they have this to worry about on top of everything else??!! Its insane!


This was on MSNBC here is the link http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/41889946#41889946 


Go there and listen to it!!! I can't believe that they are actually being serious about this???!!! Its something that is out of our hands. Its something that happens that no one understands why and these idiots are wanting to blame the women??? And put them away??!! Then you tell me WHAT good that will do to have a mother that has just had a miscarriage and to put them through all the stress of charges and such and then to put them in jail/prison. What the hell good is that going to do for them and their families and friends??? Yea that…

Survivor last night!!

So did anyone watch Survivor last night?? Omg its getting SO good!! I was shocked! I loved it though!! LOL..I'm not a huge Russell fan..I'm going for Boston Rob  I think that he's a Cutie and I am wanting him to get far this time. I think that they really really need to badly get rid of that nut Philip though. He's driving me batty and I can imagine that the people that he's around, he's really driving them nutty!! I love the show. So addicting to watch. Can't wait until next week to see what else happens.

Too Cute - Installation Problems

INSTALLING HUSBAND !
A woman writes to the IT Technical support.....

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0and CRICKET 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?

Signed,

DEAR Madam,

First, keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Bachelor - Women Tell All

I didn't realize that Brad blogged...hmm well I just found that out and read it and hmm I still am not too sure which one he chose, I'm still leaning towards Emily but I don't know...they showed the clips for next weeks show and I was speechless because he was saying how he was ready to walk out again but on the show with the tell all he said that he was happy? So who knows! Who do you all want him to pick?? My vote is still Emily. Click the title to be taken to Brad's blog about the show last night.

The Bachelor tonight

Hmm, well I don't know about all of you that watch it and keep up with it, but personally when I saw that it was a "special" with all the girls that was on the show and got told bye too I was disappointed. I watched it, I liked it...well a little! LOL...I would of rather of watched Brad, Chantel and Emily. I don't get why they had to do the reunion thing tonight when we still don't know who Brad chose! I would of liked to of seen the reunion after the finale geez!! And then the previews that they showed for last week!!! Brad saying that he was ready to walk again? But then on the reunion he had said that he was happy and all that...good grief!!! Guess I got another week to go to see what happens...I still love him and think that he's a Cutie that's for sure.

Are you ready for The Bachelor tonight???

I am so ready for the bachelor tonight!! I can't wait to see what happens when he takes the 2 ladies to go meet his family this time. I know that they will love both of the ladies. I am leaning towards Emily more then Chantel. I just like Emily and her smile and her attitude..I think she's more "real" so to speak then the other girl and I think that the other girl has a bit of an emotional thing that she needs to get under control. I can't wait to see it!! I can't believe its already 5:34 and still light out. I guess it has something to do with the daylight savings time coming up this coming weekend..that's going to be a fun weekend.

Manic Monday!

Today is Monday, yep typical Monday...but the good thing is, is that its one more day closer to starting my orientation and then my training. Orientation Friday and training starts a week from today! I am so excited and so ready to get started!! I know that its going to be a tiring road before I get there to take calls, but I think that it will be worth it...just gotta keep the positive attitude flowing...And then soon enough the week will come when I will get to actually take calls and get some great money coming in. One of the best things will be when I get paid! I can't wait for that. Even a week and I will be thrilled to get it! Even though it probably won't be until the end of next month when I get paid since they are paid every 2 weeks and not too sure if they hold a week back etc and all that...surely they won't make us wait longer then we have too already...ugh! But that's life, if they do its ok just go on with it and count down until we finally do get paid. A…

First weekend of March flew by!

Wow, the first weekend of March is already over and moving on to the next week. I can't believe how fast this year is already flying by. So much has happened already in this short amount of time and so much more I hope will happen this year. I have made some changes in my life and I hope that they turn out for the best. Sometimes its scary to make changes and not be sure if its all going to go your way or not...

I know that the new job I am going to be training for starting next Monday will be a positive change. Its going to be a pain sorta training for a month and then finally getting ready to take calls but I love learning and all so I think that the training will be a great thing and then like the guy that hired me said, once I hang in there and get through it, then everything will pay off. I am so glad that I ended up doing this second client and not the first one, it will be better in the end, especially when it pays fifty cents more an hour then the other one did. I don't…
