My Crazy, Bad Luck Saturday

December 10, 2014 By · 16 Comments

This past Saturday was one of the worst for me when it comes to luck. I mean how many of you can say you broke an ATM machine? Hmm, stopped you from leaving the page didn’t it. Well it is true but let me start from the beginning.


Normally I get the kids up by 5 am so we can take a trip to our local Walmart and spend about 2 hours as we explore the store. Hey, when you live 2 hours away from anything you’ll take a 45 minute drive to Walmart to browse. We got up late because we were tired, left a bit later and ended up having my oil light go off in my car for half the trip, which meant I had to hear the beep, beep, beep noise for about 25 minutes which was not fun but eventually you learn to tune it it. By the way I have no clue why it makes that noise I think it doesn’t like me. Once we got there we started our morning and were having a blast. Kids were preparing for our Northpole themed party and I had decided I was going to get an outfit for each of them. Soccerboy (who now earns a paycheck by working at the church) asked if he could borrow my credit card to finish his Christmas shopping for his BalletGirl, I thought nothing of it and handed it off to him. About an hour later the kids convinced me to get myself something for an upcoming Christmas Dinner the church is having so I’d have something nice to wear. How many of you always shop for your kids and always forget yourself? Yeah, me too, so the kids eventually convinced me. SoccerBoy is going to be my date that night and told me he didn’t want to dress up if I wasn’t.

10 Controversial Posts That’ll Bring You Traffic

November 12, 2014 By · 1 Comment

You have decided that you would like to write a controversial topic to either stir up trouble or see what brings you in some traffic. Be careful what you wish for because depending on the topic you can really set people off. How do you do it? This is the easy part, tell them your viewpoint, someone will always oppose your point of view, others will try to cram their views onto you until you give in. Write your post and mean what you say, support it and stand firm. Make sure to set some ground rules, one of my big ones is always speak how you feel but no name calling. Keep it clean because a child could be walking behind a parent and reading over their shoulder.

Fall Activities For Indiana

November 9, 2014 By · 1 Comment

I love Fall, especially Fall in Indiana because everything is changing colors. The reds, oranges, yellows and even the browns of nature is lovely this time of year. This is the time you can get out of your home and do some apple picking, take your family to on a hay ride or explore a hay maze. No, hay mazes aren’t just for Halloween they are perfect just to explore with the family.

If you are the type of person that likes to can or freeze food now is the time to get your canning supplies out. Whether you have your own fruits/veggies or visit a farm this is the best time to make applesauce, apple pie filling, and more. There are fresh fruit and vegetable markets and festivals going on right now, the prices will be perfect to buy your items in bundles. Here’s a website to make it a bit easier on you to find what the times are for you and/or your family to pick fresh fruits and vegetables at the farms.
