About Me

My photo
Hi everyone, thank you for visiting my blog! Let me tell you a bit about myself. First I'm a wife then a mother of two (a 5 & 1yr old). I love to share my experiences, thoughts, ideas, questions really just about everything, lol! I want to be a positive motivation by sharing what I go through. You never know what I'll post, believe me, sometimes I blow my own mind. Having children = never a dull moment. Through it all I try to take one day at time remembering to keep breathing through it all :)

Friends move away

   I don't know why but I'm always writing in the" middle of the night". I'm what I call a night person and this is the only alone time I have so my brain keeps going and going and going. As I read a friends few post this evening from the past couple of days it brought me to tears to read. Sometimes we do forget the little things and what effects our kids. Today I was brought to tears with my own son as today was one of his friends last day of school as he is moving to another school. He tells me, "Mom I'm going to miss him so much." It completely broke my heart as I had no clue what to tell him. This little boy was the sweetest thing. When I went to my daddy's field trip I had the pleasure to meet/chaperone this friend I had heard so much about and I fell in love him as his spirit was so loving. Ever time I'd go see Mikey at school his friend would always make it a point to say hi. When Mikey and dad when to get supper this evening Mike told me Mikey was crying on the way because he said he missed his friend already. We understand as parents these things happen at times but for them their friends are their world. My poor daddy is learning already friends may come and go.....

Shopping trips for 11/16 & 11/19

Here are two pictures of grocery shopping trips this week. One of my trips was Sunday the other was tonight. My totals for these trips were around $72.00 and I got about 65 items. If I say so I don't think this too bad. I can give exact amounts tomorrow but I wanted to post it tonight. (sometimes I get a little impatient)


Okay, I decided to go ahead at list everything that was purchased. 

2 cases of water
3 bx of Hot Coco
5 2ltrs of soda
2 btls of juice
3 bxs of pancake mix
3 cns of munchies (I think that's what they are called) 
1 loaf of bread
8 bars of soap 
1 pkg of meat
1 cartoon of eggs
16 bxs of Ziploc bags
1 pkg of sausage links
4 pkgs of paper plates
2 bxs of pretzels
2 pkg of bagels
8 bxs of popcorn
6 cns of peanuts
1 pkg of lunch meat
1 cartoon of Almond milk
1 pkg of corn dogs

I think that's everything. If you average the items bought for the price I paid about $1.00 for each item. Do you still think couponing doesn't work?  

PS. I know the second picture isn't really good, I had to use what I had though :)

  When I write I write about what's going in my/ our lives, that's what I know. When I speak with one of my friends we have so much in common partially because we are both stay at home moms & Geminis! I talk to another one of my girls and we have a lot of similarities too. The similarities are different though. From this I realized most women are primarily the same. We mostly want the same thing out of a man, we have the same goals, same issues in marriage, etc. We handle our situations in our own way but are wants are extremely similar. When it comes to our kids mama bear comes out, discipline some similarities but the age range various from 1 1/2 to 14. As you can see we are all at different stages.  
   Now when we speak about our relationships its a whole different ball game. We all want a faithful man, some of our men have more leeway then others though. As women when we speak our emotions tend to come out so our conversations don't always go the way we'd like them too. Some of us are working on that others not so much, lol. There is nothing wrong with that but don't get mad when your man speaks to you in the same manner. Helping around the house, this is a big one! Regardless of the woman's position we want more help at home and for a man to take on some of the stress we have.
  Most women are Superwomen! I say most because I know some females have it very easy at home. That's going to have to be a different post! When I speak on stress we don't want are men stressed out but as a female are always thinking of our to-do list. Men, they can come home eat, sit, watch TV, go to bed and be ok. So I'm going to speak for me now; I want to have equal responsibilities. This may mean to have a schedule so we can be on the same page and no one does more then the other. If you stay at home or not most women do more. 
   Marriage/ Relationship. We want attention! Turn the tv off, put your phone/remote down, sit next to me look at me and lets talk. Hey when kids are around most of the time your conversation will be rushed. If you have kids, you know what I'm talking about. There will be a kid getting into something, looking/ bothering the other one, not sharing, making a mess, etc etc, no need to go on and on. Wait maybe that's just my household, lol.
   Regardless of your age, financial status, relationship status, household status it's not always greener on the other side. We get fed up with our spouses and most people now a days look towards divorce, and it's not always the answer. The women that inspired this post aren't the same age, they have different ethnicity and careers. Don't ever think no one understands you or don't let your man think you are asking for too much. There are so many women that are want the same thing, the solution; find a man that respects and loves you and pick your battles :)

GOD is Good

I sound like a broken record but I can't help it. God is awesome!!! He has blessed us this week in a way only he can. We watched some of Joel Olsten's service this weekend and he explained when you send praises up God will shower you with blessings. 

Words are a powerful weapon please them wisely!
