Blog Dare - Day 10 - How my idea of "easy" has changed since becoming a mother.

How my idea of "easy" has changed since becoming a mother. So since being a mother the word easy is very Rarely in my vocabulary!! Unless its an easy dinner there isn't such a thing as easy anymore and even though my kids are teenagers, it still isn't that easy! Now there is just different Issues and things to deal with rather then when they were smaller. My idea of easy has definitely changed since being a MOm but its all good since my kids are my life and the air that I breathe and I wouldn't change it for anything in the world!

Fried Fish Tacos just don't make me go yum!

Fried fish tacos just doesn't sound too appetizing to me ... Ick is more like it!! I guess I'm into trying new things but I am not a huge fan of fish..I like tacos no problem there but not fried fish ... What other crazy recipes are out there that you want to share?    

Blog Dare - Day 9 - I never get to __________ anymore.

Blog dare for day 9 is I never get to _____ anymore. Hmm, ok well I never get to just go out and take a road trip to wherever the road leads me anymore and I so would love to do that, not that I did it that much before but I use to just decide that one weekend I would just go wherever the road led me and enjoy it, sometimes with the kids/family and other times just by myself. I never get to do that anymore although here pretty soon I am hoping to take a trip to Graceland with a friend or two. I would so love to go there and sight see and relax and just walk around and hopefully take tons of pics! I love Elvis always will and would love to go there. I would also love to just go and explore everything around there and take on some new adventures with my friends and make new memories and of course take a bazillion pictures of everything!! Maybe this month or next? We will see...

Blog Dare - Day 8 - If I were alone on a train -- I would be heading...

If I were alone on a train -- I would be heading... Hmm ok so today's blog dare is if I were alone on a train, I would be heading to Hollywood. Why not? I would love to see what adventures Hollywood has to offer me. The first thought was if the train would be somehow able to get over there to Paris then that is where I would want to go...otherwise Hollywood. I want to go and walk down the street where the Stars are..can't think of the name of it...geez! I want to go in so many places and just take a ton of pics that would be awesome and I don't care if I am alone or not..I just want to go and explore and have some great adventures.

Blog Dare - Day 7 in March - Recipes that baffle me.

Recipes that bafffle me...I don't think that there is one that baffles me as of yet..I've been doing pretty good with them. Although I haven't tried making a pie yet...hmm maybe that is one that baffles me!   I want to make one like my grandmother does with the whipped white egg whites on top of it..can't remember the name of it at the moment but I have pic of it in my head so I'm not losing my mind might be one that baffles me right now since I haven't tried it but want to pretty soon.  

Would you rather have more blog readers or more blog comments?

Hmm, well I would love more blog readers but I think that I love reading the great comments that people leave me too so that is a hard one to choose..hmm maybe the more readers and that way there would be more that want to comment if I had more readers? I would love and appreciate more of both

Something interesting I came across...Thank you Magical Mystical Mimi :)

So I was going around and reading some of the blogs that I follow and happen to stumble upon one of my followers Magical Mystical Mimi  and saw a few cool blogs on hers and thought ok where in the world did she think about blogging about those things? Which got me looking around and I found this NaBloPoMo writing prompts so I thought I would check it out and I think that I will try to do these blogs each day too to keep me up and going more and more. Especially like nights like tonight where I am in a really bloggy mood!! hehe :)

Hiring Customer Service Reps and more actual "Work at home jobs - not business opps"

Hi everyone, ok I just wanted to send out a quick post and let you know that we are hiring a lot of contractors right now to help our business start growing and would like you to be a part of it.   Here's a little about us/the company. The company is called Ori Global Enterprise Its a great and legit company. This is for actual "jobs" that we do here at home, anything from data entry to customer service to Virtual Assistant to Telemarketing and Sales and everything in between. You can work full or part time that is up to you.   If you are interested and want more info please email me And I will send you out more info and we can go from there.   This is NOT a business that you run from home, this is NOT a business opportunity and this is NOT a pyramid chain thing. So I just wanted to make that loud and clear from the get go.   I have been working here at home for 10 plus years doing customer service, email and chat customer service, both virtual and personal

Blog Dare - Day 4 in March - My goals this Spring are...

My goals this Spring are to spend more time with my daughter and have our own garden hopefully or try at least. And I want to go to a ton of garage sales with my daughter too..she's going to be 15 soon (mid of April) and I think that I need to keep doing what I can with her while she still wants to spend time with ole mom...Other goals are making sure that I get into college for the Fall semester. I have to make absolute sure that nothing messes up my plans and I want to go part time but its still on my goal list. I decided to go for it part time instead of full time so that I can continue working as well. I don't want to lose my place working, especially now since I am a manager!! I love it and don't want to let it go ever! My goal for this spring also is to get the kids another trampoline and to have our new vehicle by then...well by the time the kids are out of school and not quite summer yet... Have a great upcoming week everyone.
