Food Shopping Haul | Walmart | Video |

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I got woke up early today and have been feeling it all day. :( Actually after a pot and 1/2 of coffee, I am starting to feel more alive! Yesterday I went out to do some shopping. I got off schedule with the groceries last week. I normally go on Friday's but I went early and yada yada yada. Here we are with food haul in the middle of the week. I needed more dinner items and since I don't want to go again this Friday, I shopped for basically 2 weeks. We still might have to pick up a few other things here and there but I think I got enough to last a while! Here's our menu plan and the food I got. Hope you enjoy! 

On youtube , I am happy you guys seem to like how I grouped the dinner items together. I guess I can do that more! It did seem to make more sense. I need get moving and go record a video before starting our busy evening routine. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll see ya soon!xx

Tuesday Truths

Hello friends! Another Tuesday night has rolled I am sharing some Tuesday Talks and Truths with you guys! Hope you enjoy. 

- I just had the hardest time getting my butt out of the bed today. It felt amazing and it took everything I had to get up. Thankfully I have been doing better with getting to sleep earlier and waking earlier as well. I really have no idea why it was so hard besides it being cold outside. 

- I am trying my best to keep up with my video and blog schedule. When I follow a blog or youtube channel I hate it when they just drop off the map. So I promise I am working hard at keeping up. I am also working on answering comments too. Thank you guys for taking time to leave me your thoughts on my videos. 

- I have been doing a lot better at not responding to online trolls here the past few days. God knows I want to sometimes but its just a waste of energy. I am who I am and I will not apologize for it. 

- Jackson broke yet another pair of glasses. It drives me crazy to have replace them over and over and over. I will probably be replacing them when he's 30. I think it's time to buy those frames that can bend. 

- Guess what I found out? I was watching Forensic Files and decided afterwards to see about the sexual predators in our area. WOW is all I can say. I don't know if I want the kids ever to leave the house again. Here's the site....Family Watchdog in case you want to check too. Once the map is up just click on the pins on the map to see who they are and where they live. It makes me nervous and what makes me even more nervous is the ones who have not been caught. 

- I saw an interview this morning with Teresa Giudice talking about her prison stay. I think she is beautiful with a family of beautiful daughters ( and short husband! ) but listening to her speak just shocked the hell out of me. To me she sounded like she had a mouth full of marbles. I am happy she is back home with her girls though. No one ever wants to end up in prison. I don't want to watch any of the housewives shows but I am pulling for her and her family. 

- I really am not a fan of social media. I keep it for the blog but I could totally do without most of it. I do like seeing your pictures on instagram but I think through blogging and making videos I share enough. I can't keep up with it all. I thought about trying snapchat but's simply not going to happen. Do you regret any of you'r social media accounts? Maybe I should try to make it fun and be more interactive with you all. :)

- Our oldest daughter has a half sister named Sarah. Sarah has some issues in which a service dog would be helpful for. Under Lauras photo you can find a photo of Sarah and when you click on will be directed to her page that explains her story. Soooooo....if you guys feel like helping, it would be gratefully appreciated. It just started and I am hoping to help get the word out so she can get a service dog. If you have any questions you can contact Laura through her blog right here. 

- The weather here tonight is freeeeeezing! I guess I need to toughen up before we move up north. It's only going to be colder up there in the winters. I just don't even like going out in cold weather. I just don't like it. We should have a fire going tonight. 

- I think I am getting another camera for my birthday! I am totally excited. It's the same one that Laura has and I can't wait to get it. :) 

- This wouldn't be a normal Tuesday Truths post if I didn't complain about Donald Trump. Can you believe he said " P***y " on tv about another candidate. What a first. I mean I like his attitude sometimes but do you really want a mafia styled PRESIDENT? I sure don't. I can't believe people are still standing with this clown. AND he just won the New Hampshire primary. And Sanders on the democratic side. I think Sanders is our next President. In my opinion, any democrat will do.  

- Brittany's little friend has been texting me daily. He's been crazy about her since 2nd grade and this boy I am actually a little nervous about. I not nervous in ways you might think....he's seems to be a wonderful young man. He is a baseball player but very allergic to peanuts! So, I am sure I will have to watch out for that in the coming years but I just think he might be around for many years. She starts high school next year and I don't expect him to go anywhere. At least his mom seems to have done her job well. He is for  abstinence unless married....he goes to church every week and he makes A's & B's. She's too young to date for a couple years but I bet when she can, he will be waiting. 

- My sister in law is starting to feel better. It's not's my other sister in law who had surgery a few weeks back. She is still home and is pretty limited in what she can do but her staples came out yesterday! One step in the right direction!

- You know I am not shy about posting stories of animal abusers in the news. I can't help it. I love animals. I feel like I do my best to care for my own and I am not above helping out any stray or abused animals. However, I take my hat off to Ursula Vari. She really shows what it means to truly love and care for an animal. When I was watching the videos last night, I had tears of happiness running down my face. Do yourself a favor and check this story out. 

- I went out today and did some shopping. Thank goodness I did because I must be a spoiled bitch when it comes to coffee. I guess I just like what I like. I bought decaf Gevalia coffee and Scott had opened it up before I had a chance to mention it. Then I buy Folgers. No thank you. So happy the coffee will be extra good tomorrow morning! 

- I was really pressed for time today and I am so proud of myself on how fast I moved through my errands and getting Jackson from school. I came everything out of the bags and set up. Filmed the haul. Put stuff away. Edited the haul...made dinner and fed the animals. Might not sound like a lot but I was in a total hurry shopping and getting Jackson. I still have a little work to do in the kitchen but I am so thankful to be sitting here resting waiting on my husband to come home. I hope you guys had a wonderful day and an even better night. See ya tomorrow. xx

Etsy Sticker Haul | Video |

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. It's a chilly day here and I have some running around to do later but before that happens; I thought I would share my latest etsy sticker haul that I plan on using in my Midori Travelers Notebook. I know this video might not be for everyone but if you love planners or decorating your calendars you might just enjoy seeing these stickers. Here's the video...

Here's some better photos of the stickers and stamps that came in....

This group of photos came from IsabelleTheOwl on etsy. I thought her peachy colored kits were so pretty. I got the Peachy Perfect Erin Condren Weekly Kit Planner Stickers and the horizontal Peachy Perfect Erin Condren Weekly Kit. I plan on using these a little in my Midori and on our family calendar that hangs on the chalkboard wall. 
I also got her Happy Planner Winter Mauve Pink and Gold Glitter Weekly Planner Kit | Scrapbooking | because I just thought the colors were so pretty and spring like. 
From Let's Plan it I found these Country Floral- ECLP vertical weekly set (2 options)-planner stickers that I really reminded me of spring. Such pretty colors and designs. 

From Shimmers and Sparkles on etsy I got the February Weekly Planner Stickers - Erin Condren Vertical - wk2v just to jazz up my planner/calendar for Valentines Day. 

She was also super nice and included a few extras! 

I was using my Inkwell Press Live Better Planner for a while and I wanted some hexigon stickers for the monthly dashboard. I found these on Inky Dink Printing.  I picked out the Dreamsicle Hexagon Stickers / Planner Stickers / Weekly Layout Stickers / Inkwell Press Stickers / Calendar Stickers / I don't use that planner any longer but I do plan on using these still in my Midori. 

From Prints VI I decided to go ahead and get a March set of stickers for St. Patrick's Day! A lot of these stickers take a couple weeks to get to you so I wanted to order early. I picked out the Saint Patrick's Day Sticker Kit, Planner Stickers which I really like a lot! 

The last thing I share is a package that had just came in from Cute Things From Japan on Etsy. I loved everything I got! This was a Midori order where I got some travel stickers and washi tape and a few new Midori Stamps. These are totally a favorite for me out of everything I purchased. 
I have some other planner videos coming you way in the next few weeks. I want to share some of my favorites before taking you through my 2016 setup. I get a lot of questions about my planner and before they start rolling in, I'll do my best to answer them first. :) Thank you for stopping by. I would love to know what you're favorite etsy shops if you care like sharing! I'll be back sometime later tonight with a new Tuesday Truths blog post! Be sure to come back and check it out!

What's Cookin' | Our Daily Meals | VIDEO

Hello friends! I hope your evening is going well. I am back sharing a new food diary of sorts going over our daily meals. I know not everyone likes how we eat or what I cook but I do my best to make my family happy. Could we maybe use a little bet. But my main concern is making a meal that my family can enjoy without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Here are some of our dinners from this past week. Hope you enjoy! 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope maybe you got some new dinner ideas for your family with this video. If you have and questions or comments about anything you saw, be sure to let me know! Actually right now dinner is almost done ( beef stew ) and we are just waiting on Scott to get home! In case you haven't checked it out, I posted a new week in review today. I'll see ya tomorrow with a new video and Tuesday Truths. Have a beautiful and blessed night. xx

Week in Review: February 1 - 8, 2016

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. I am back with a quick week in review post sharing how this past week went. Normally I would have a day in the life vlog to include but this past week I just didn't vlog that much. I plan on starting back up today and will probably have one up mid week or next Monday. Today I have been struggling to get myself motivated to get everything accomplished on my to do list. The picture above couldn't be more right on! I have checked all my favorite websites and emails....enjoyed coffee and thought about all I need to get done.

Notes from my Midori:

:: Make sure trash is out
:: Take Chantix
:: Respond to emails
:: Toss laundry around. Fold & put away.
:: Record Sticker Haul
:: Clean out frig
:: Menu plan
:: Update Chalkboard Walls
:: Work on grocery list
:: Edit, save and upload video
:: Call about hotel points
:: Listen to voicemails
:: Start beef stew early this evening.
:: New coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Nail
:: Clean Coopers dishes
:: Get Valentines for Scott and the kids
:: Weekly Cleaning on Wednesday

I have really been loving this notebook for everything. I have been using it for my monthly and daily calendars, my youtube/blog schedule book, and another insert for notes. It's been working so well for me. In the next few weeks I will be taking you though some planner stickers and supplies that I like to use before I share my setup. :) However I do have a video sharing these notebooks in detail right here in case you want a closer look at them.

This past week went pretty good. Besides some online drama, I felt like it was a nice week. The days flew by. I am still wishing for the clocks to change. I don't know about you but I could totally use an extra hour of daylight. I feel like I am still playing catch up on things around the house. I just keep moving forward and maybe one day I will be all caught up. Doubt it! On Thursday Scott was off work. I can pretty much plan on nothing getting done on his days off. We just laid around the house together and enjoyed a day of tv together. It was actually really nice having him home. I might complain about Scott being hyper but we miss him a lot when he's gone. So I try to make the best out of his days off....even if that means it's a day of sleeping in and enjoying netflix. I mean...that really doesn't sound that bad does it?

Another interesting thing that happened this past week was us finally deciding on a March weekend trip to Indiana. Brittany is competing with Cheer-leading and really wants us to be there to watch. I couldn't say no. I was going to go alone but we thought it might just be fun for everyone! Plus I thought it might be nice for Zane to see the area I am wanting to move him to! ( BTW...Brittany is right behind the coach's shoulder...brown hair! )

Besides watching her cheer I plan on seeing our oldest daughter and other family as well. I am sure I can pack a weekend full of things to do easily. I'm starting to figure out the hotel and everything else it takes to make a trip happen. I'm really excited and I hope we have a wonderful time! 

The weekend showed up and we pretty much enjoyed it at home. The kids are doing really good with getting along....playing outside....and learning that it's not always up to mom and dad to be the entertainment. It's been fun watching them just be kids. Both seem so happy and free. Saturday we all slept in. Jackson got up at 12pm and was the first up...then me and Zane was last. I guess we all needed some extra hours. I choose to make my bed my little office and worked online re doing the blog design to incorporate a sidebar and some new colors. There are some additional changes as well but I am sure you can see them for yourself. Take a second to scroll all the way down to find everything. I have some links to my favorites below as well. It took a long while to get it changed up but I like the end result and I hope you do too. 

Sunday was pretty much the same. We were all lucky to sleep in and woke up feeling rested. Well...actually I woke up tired because Jackson woke up early and was so loud through out the house. I guess Saturday he got all the extra sleep he needed! Scott and I decided to watch some of the Beverly Hills Cop Movies. We watched 2 before the Superbowl and I watched the 3rd when I went to bed. many laughs! I forgot how funny those old movies are. 

Also over the weekend I got around to a little shopping. If you haven't seen the haul's right here. I needed to pick up a few things but I wasn't prepared and will have to go back sometime either Tuesday or Wednesday.  Once the game started on Sunday I got busy making the snacks and a big easy chicken taco dinner that they really seemed to enjoy. The cheese dip/queso made everyone happy! I personally think it was the best part of dinner! Scott and the boys really enjoyed watching the game together. With Zane now living here full time we are getting to experience a lot of 1st with him. This was the first time he has ever watched the Super Bowl with his dad. And Jackson enjoyed it as well. They ate, laughed, drank Cokes and had a boys night! I wish I would have taken more pictures but I was busy trying to get things ready for this week. It was a fun night at home. :)

Here's some inspiration to take with you....

This picture I am printing out and hanging in the house. I need to teach it to my kids and I also need to remember myself. There has been a lot of negative energy floating around making me forget all about manners. I needed the refreshed for sure! I hope you guys have a wonderful week. I will be back later today with a new What's Cookin Video so be sure to come back and check it out! Happy Monday!

Sunday Inspiration | Silence is Key |

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Sunday. I bet many of you are starting off the festivites for the Super Bowl tonight. I on the other hand am sitting here still sleepy trying to find my motivation. I thought today I would share another Sunday Inspiration post. It's been a while since I have written one of these posts but I really want to get my normal blogging and youtube schedule back in order. So here we are...on this beautiful Super Bowl Sunday. 

I feel like for the past month or so I have been dealing with so much negative stuff. From my neighbors to a strange youtuber....not to mention all the stress of everyday life with a husband and two teenage boys. It's not like I don't have enough on my plate already. And instead of being graceful I have just let it all flow from my mouth. I don't see the point in trying to keep it all a big secret. I would rather be myself and just respond. But while I am busy typing like a maniac and trying to defend myself, I am not hearing God. I am not focusing on really what matters. 

For years I have felt the need to stand up for myself. It simply was the way I was raised. Be Strong. Speak up for yourself. Don't take crap off anyone my grandfather use to tell me. And I have done what he has told me so many times in my life. I have stood up when everyone was sitting down to point out something wrong. I have opened my big mouth to defend myself, my family, my friends. I have tried to teach my kids the same thing. I want them to use their voices and not be scared. But there does come to a point when enough is enough. I think right now in all the online crap, it's time to just to keep my mouth shut. I don't want to burden my friends/family/viewers/subscribers with my problems or drama. And for all the past ranting about it....I am sorry. I for some reason just feel the need to stand up and speak out. But a viewer on this video shared her comment that I should kill them with silence. I have thought about this for days now. Should I kill them with silence? Should I not speak out? And after days of pondering those questions my thoughts now's time to be radar silent on these kind of attacks. No matter whatever I say....there will people who won't believe me and it will only get them going even harder. 

I have made peace with not everyone liking me. I really have. I have made peace with people talking crap non stop. Really I have handled it better than most would assume. I can go happily along with my day even after I have read some horrible thing someone said about me. Life goes on. But what I can't do is defend myself day in and day out. When I am in that frame of mind, I am not able to hear Gods message. I know that. I am going to work much harder at keeping my mouth shut and just move on. I have such a beautiful life and that's where I want my energy to go. Time to refocus. The crazy online drama has taken enough of my time already. I hope you follow this blog and my youtube channel because you want to and I am grateful for every comment made on every video and on here. It has truly been a blessing and honor to be a part of this community. I hope to move on to better times and I hope you come with me. ♥  Happy Sunday. Enjoy the Super Bowl!

Shopping Haul | Aldi & Walmart | Video

Hello and happy weekend to you all! It's a slow moving day around our home. Both kids slept in late as did I and we feel great today. Well....lazy but great! Yesterday I got busy doing a little shopping to get us through. I feel like we are going to need more for dinners next week but I will go again in a few days. I honestly didn't want to be out yesterday and was just in a hurry to get it done. I went to Aldi and Walmart. Hope you enjoy!

Friday Letters

Hello friends! I am back with another edition of Friday Letters. Hope you enjoy! 

Dear God, Thank you for loving me no matter what. Sometimes I totally loose my way and I need your help. Thank you for keeping my family safe. 

Dear Shanna, you are the kind of best friend that everyone needs. I love you bunches. 

Dear Jackson, You sound like an elephant upstairs tonight. I hope you don't come through the floor! I love you. 

Dear CNN, I wish you guys would just ban Trumps antics from your channel. It's just sad every time I tune in, I see his face. 

Dear Scott, I am so happy you are home. I have wanted you here all day. I look forward to laying around with you. Would a back massage be too much to ask for!? I love you. 

Dear legs, why are you bothering me so much tonight? I guess you are just tired. Hopefully a long bath later will help. 

Dear Brittany, I am so very happy to be coming up there next month to see you cheer. You know that I love you dearly and we are so proud of you. 

Dear Trina, I told you this was getting crazy. Thanks for listening today....everyday. You know Scott and I both love you.

Dear Rory & Joey Feek, my heart really goes out to your beautiful family. I can't imagine what you are going through but you both inspire me. 

Dear Yard, I wish I was sowing seeds and starting a garden. I really do. We have had so many beautiful vegetable gardens through out the years but I don't want to garden in red clay and I don't want to live here though out summer. So I am just waiting. 

Dear Weather, could you please make up your mind if you want it warm or cold. A mix of both has not been so fun. Just warm up once and for all!

Dear Bonnie and also fellow and new youtubers, I had a bit of a meltdown today about a person interjecting themselves in our lives. So of course I made a video about it. Here it is... sorry for being so upset but I thought it would be ok to express my feelings. I don't like negativity so I should probably try to stop focusing on the bullshit and focus instead on the happy times.  Anyway, this video pretty sums up what I feel. 

Dear Mom, I hope we can figure out a time to get together soon. I miss you.

Dear Martin Shkreli, I wish you would just quietly disappear. I don't know how you can justify what you have done. Greed at it's finest I guess. You deserve hell.

Dear Mail, I hate that it takes so long for my packages to come in. I still love snail mail but shouldn't take as long as it does. I am just waiting...waiting...waiting.

Dear Laci, We need to catch up. I hope all is well. Love you bunches.

Dear House, you have felt so cold and chilly the last couple of days. I just can't seem to get warm no matter what I do.

Dear Indiana, we have a history for sure. A love hate relationship if you will and I just hope moving back home will be ok. I need it to be ok. I need for the memories and flashbacks not to be too devastating. I need for it to be different for the kids in a good way. Please work with me.

Dear Laura, I miss you. Call me when the kids go to bed...we have a bunch to catch up on!

Dear Zane, I am happy you seem happy! I really just want you to thrive and move on to a great life. We love you.

Dear Creed, I can't wait until I can watch you. Seriously....I am so excited!

Dear Buddy, I need to check on Joseph. I hope things are getting a little better. I'll call you tomorrow.

Dear Hair, I must be crazy trying to grow you out. I think I just need to go get it cut and move on.

Dear Drama, I don't know where you came from with the silly neighbors and with the crazies from youtube. I need a break. Go away. Our life is full enough of everyday kid drama and so on. No more is required.

Dear Cooper, you look so sweet sleeping in the floor next to me. It looks like you are running in your dreams...paws twitching. Sweet dreams.

Dear Dinner, you were so good tonight! Everyone loved it and ate it up.

Dear Youtube & Bloggy Friends, thank you for your comments on that video above. It means a lot to me. I hope that I can just move on from this and get back to making videos for the people who actually enjoy them. It means a lot to me to have you're support. Thank you. Thank you so much for listening. I love you guys. Happy Weekend. xx

Reflecitng: January 2016 + Questions & Answers | Video |

Hello friends! I hope your evening is going good. It's been a busy day of cleaning the house up, making and editing videos along with dinner...homework...and so much more. Sorry about the different times my blog posts and videos are going live. I am just getting them done at random. Hope you don't mind. Tonight I am reflecting on January. Can you believe we are already in a new year!? I sure can't. Since a lot didn't happen around here last month...I also address a few questions that have been asked. As always, there is a lot more below. :)


Seeing: a lot of rain here the past few days. I love it but it's hard to stay motivated when its cold, wet and nasty. 
Making: to much time discussing what others think of me. I totally need to get over it. 
Cooking: meatloaf tonight. Easy peasy dinner that Scott likes a lot. 
Drinking: Coke instead of Mt. Dew. But need to get more water in me. 
Hearing: a lot of political stuff....CNN is on
Wanting: for summer. 
Looking: forward to moving. I have actually really loved South Carolina but I miss our family and friends waiting on us to move home. 
Playing: a lot of Adel, Phil Collins and Bonjovi. I should make a mix tape for you guys!
Wasting: too much time! I was sick for a few days last week and it just slowed everything down!
Bookmarking: not that much right now. 
Understanding: I am who I am. I am not ashamed of myself, my family or my friends. We are all just trying to find our way in this big world. 
Wishing: for a vacation with Scott. A little getaway sounds really nice. 
Touching: my keyboard....trying to get this post done by time the video is processed and live on youtube! 
Enjoying: Billions on showtime. Malin Akerman is amazing in it. :)
Waiting: to win the lottery. I bet I will be waiting a hell of a long time! 
Planning: in my Midori Travelers notebook and loving it! 
Liking: myself more and more. I think as the years pass I become more and more confident. 
Wondering: If Scott is taking the kids to school tomorrow or am I. Hummmm...maybe if I just say please!
Loving:  The boys getting along. It's not constant but they are really starting to become close friends. It's going to take a while. They have never lived together. 
Hating: that my mom tore up the piano she was redoing for me. We decided it was probably best but I still hated it. :(
Needing: Daylight savings to change again. I need more sun in my life. 
Smelling: Peaches....a waxy melt that has been lingering through the house all day. 
Wearing: only comfortable warm clothes. Since I am able to be home most days....comfort is all that truly matters. 
Pinning: not that much. 
Learning: Calligraphy still. I need to practice more but sometime I hope to make a video sharing what I have learned....and it would be easy for you to learn as well! 
Teaching:  manners...manners...manners. The kids are doing better but we still have a long way to go!
Noticing: more wrinkles! Please work No, 7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. So far I like it! 
Tasting:  some spring jasmine tea. It's a favorite from Mighty Leaf! 
Knowing: we have a beautiful loyal loving family....and that's truly all that matters. 
Thinking: about all I haven't done around here because I wasn't feeling good and how to get it all done a hurry! 
Opening: new sticker orders that I can't wait to share with you! 
Giggling: at my silly husband. I love it when he makes me laugh! 
Feeling: good which I am so grateful because of it. I just want to continue feeling good and accomplishing all my tasks and goals. 
January: went by so fast. To me it seemed like even the days in my planner were turned super fast. I don't know where time went but I am happy we are moving forward into spring and summer. 

Feel free to join in and answer the questions yourself if you are a blogger! I would love to read your answers....leave a link so I can come visit. Have a great night. xx

Tuesday Truths

Hey everyone! Happy Tuesday. I hope your day is going good. I am back with another edition of Tuesday Talks and Truths. Hope you enjoy! 

- I actually loved Trump lost out last night but I hated seeing Ted Cruz have victory. I think I dislike Cruz more than Trump. Actually I can't stand either of them and I wish they would just go away.

- I watched The Bridge of Spies last night with Tom Hanks. I normally love his movies but this was totally not one of my favorites. Bummer. 

- It's been raining here all day long. I think it's suppose to rain tomorrow too. It's kinda suiting my mood today so whatever. I got like 2 hours total sleep last night. I am totally dragging myself around today.

- I got upset last night and emailed my neighbor to hash things out. I hope we can stop with the bullshit and just move on. Life is too short to fight over non sense. 

- Thankfully I have been feeling better. It took days to get all the advil out of my system. It was awful. Now that I am feeling better, I really need to get off my ass and get a ton of things done. My to do list is ever growing. 

- I can't believe the amount of people/haters who watch and analyze me. I know being online has it pros and cons but its totally shocking to say the least. I mean shit...why not call NASA and get one of those body suits that gives all my vitals and such. Follow me on fitbit and you can have my heart rate if that suits your fancy!  But people need to find something else to spend your time on. You couldn't be more wrong than 2 left shoes most of the time. I wish you " analysts " would at least get things right. I'm truly honored you hate me so much. :)

- The treadmill has been OFF the past week or so. I need to just force myself to do it. I will probably feel better after but why is it so hard to find the time or energy to do it.

- We changed up the study time, place, and I think it's already helping the boys. It's hard because they can both be a distraction to each other but at other times they are helping each other out. So they are sitting at the same table but at opposite ends. Even if they don't have homework, they have study time. And I loooooove the teacher texts with homework and assignment reminders. Thank you teachers! :) 

- I saw this video today which totally broke my heart. This poor dog was so traumatized. I do stick up for animals. I love animals...all kinds. I have donated money, time so many times to help. That's the way my mom raised me. We loved animals and we still do. And the previous owner of this dog deserves a cozy seat in hell. For the life of me, I don't understand how someone can do this to an animal.

- Looking down at my rings totally need cleaned. Another task to check off.

- I feel like need to work on forgiving. But not just forgiving....forgiving fast. Letting issues go by and not get hung up on them for any amount of time. It's just not in my DNA to be like that so I guess I have some work to do.

- Our washer seems to have a mind of it's own. I just wanted it to get us through the holidays and it did. I guess we need to start thinking about getting another one sometime soon.....which totally sucks!

- There is a new OJ Series coming on. I don't know if I am going to watch it at all. Maybe. I watched the trial everyday it was on. But it should be interesting so maybe. What do you guys think? It will be premiering tonight at 10pm on FX.

- Tonight is pancake night. :) The kids are happy about it and in just a couple minutes, it will be time to get in the kitchen. Thank you guys for coming and visiting. I love talking and sharing with you. Have a beautiful evening. xx
