I have been so busy and it is so easy to forget the little things. Each time I say to myself just post some updates, something comes up and, well, here we are. The end of the school year is finally here and it may sound strange, but I have some free time now than I did during the school year which was keeping me busy with school functions, fundraisers, etc. Ahh....Summer is here. Lets see what's in store for us all :)

I have mentioned before that I do have a family member that is fighting addiction, everyone has their thing and his is alcohol. I was researching places and how they are able to get help and I have to admit that there are so many helpful resources out there and in our are that can help our loved ones. For instance, hydrocodone rehab
and the site gives you full detail on how you can get help for that particular rehab. Being supportive and showing them that we care is so important as well as getting them the professional help that they need.

I have a very strong dislike for this service hat Fed Ex doesnt really do much of and that is deliver packages. I have had at lease 4 bad experiences which is enough for me to officially say that I hate them. The latest one? I am waiting home all day for a package that I ordered to come via two day shipping from Amazon. I had stuff to do so I specifically took that day off, guess what? They never came. I go to the site to track package, which is a joke by the way, and it said an attempt was made, package is back at facility. Well! An attempt was made, but somehow..no door tag, AND surveillance footage proves...no freaking delivery or delivery guy. UPS is my number one choice, ALWAYS, but, it is not up to me how amazon decides to ship their items so I have to pray to the gods that it is not by fed ex. I make a call and pretty much was brushed off and told maybe the driver could not find the address, hahahahahha. Ladies and gents, UPS made a delivery that day and many other days with no problems. MY package had time sensitive material and I have to wait extra days to get it because they dont do weekends. Pardon my french, but fed ex are fucking ass wipes that needs to get their shit together! /end rant

I swear this is the best thing ever. First let me say I respect any and everyone that can play, I am a beginner, well not even that, whats before a beginner? That's what I am haha. Any who, I learned the different kinds of guitars and if you want to take it seriously, you will need amt pedals at guitar center
. I am so ready to be a bad ass rocker chick...well rocker mom chick, but you know what I mean. Once you get all the equipment you need, start the journey!

This is what I get asked when talking to family Well, it's cold and there's snow and its more cold, it sucks. But I always say that, I rather the cold sometimes to the brutally hot summers we have been getting. You really cant win and now the south is having snow, like maybe an inch of it and shut down their towns. hey who am I to laugh when we have the earthquake, it was pretty much the same deal, we are just not used to it!

It is still cold, it's still winter and I am so ready to get that over with and welcome the Summer! We have had some pretty cold days here in NY even close to record breaking! I can not wait for the warm weather for a few thing, the kids love it and I am also planning on getting a playsets virginia beach
for them to play in since we have other family members with younger kiddies. We have already started making plans on how we are going to spend the summer. Between spending some family time together and cookouts and more, we are sure to have a great time. We will keep ourselves cool with iced tea and other cool drinks. I just hope that it is not a scorching hot Summer like it has been a couple of years ago!

Ahh, so we have come to a new year, my goodness! 2014 already huh? Well I can say that so far, this year have been looking really great. I have a fabulous work at home gig that has been keeping me oh so busy! it is one of those jobs that you say to yourself that it is super worth it and do not feel like you are working for slave labor. I still get to do the things that I want to and will catch up on things that I have been slacking on. I love being able to look at my posts form so many years ago and see how much things have evolved. Kisses and Happy prosperous new year to everyone!

And I do not mean being able to play, I mean purchasing something special for someone who is into music. For instance I plan on getting one of my boys exciting rogue analog delay
simply because it was mentioned, and also still brainstorming something else for my youngest. It is so important to make sure that your children enjoy their holidays even if you can't get them he gift they truly want, as long as it comes from the heart, its good enough!

I love baking during the holidays and will be trying some new recipes and shapes this year, the only thing is trying not to eat them all! I always have to try and test each batch and make sure they are all okay, next thing you know, bam, 10 pounds later I am wondering what the heck happened! Not this time, I will try and refrain myself...hopefully!

Is by not trying out solutions that you have come up with. Seriously it does not work most of the time! Some cranberry sauce fell on an area rug and I swear everyone had an idea of their own that they swore worked. I find that in the case of needing a stain removed, a spot stain remover
is your best bet....and it will save your carpet too!

So we are all stuffed with turkey and all those delicious goodies, but what to do with all the turkey leftovers? I look forward to this every year because I can often find creative ways to enjoy the turkey without being tired of it.
- Turkey fried rice
- Turkey pot Pie
- Turkey fajitas/Burritos (this one is easy, just toss stuffing, rice and everything in the burrito)
- Turkey quesadillas
- Curry Turkey and white rice
and so much more, the possibilities are endless!

We had an awesome time with friends who are also avid gamers. The convention was awesome and got to meet plenty of new and old friends. Now that we are back to reality, it is time to purchase an instrument for our middle son, his school wants him to use the old used ones, but we think it is better to get a new one and being a musical family, why not. If you are interested, you can save on kanstul trumpets
and these are so much more affordable than the regular ones we see at our local store. I love shopping online because of deals like this! I will post pictures of our weekend trip with friends.

I received an email today and it seems to be one of those scams and they even provided a link (which I did not click just in case) to a news story about lottery winners The subject of the email said "Cash Donation to you and your family
"Your "EMAIL" is one of the email addresses listed to receive US$2,500,000.00 million from HoneyWells Donation Fund, a charitable group funded by Virginia's newest multi-millionaires.
For claims, send your •Name,•Age,•Phone,•Country. Follow the link below to know more about the sponsors of this donation;
President -Dave & Nancy Honeywell.
I noticed the email had a .de at the end which I believe is form denmark? I am sure they are trying to gather some info on as much people just like any other scam out there. I am so sick of these emails, but the only thing we can do is report it and take precautions.

Many people are not aware of this, but you can actually get bankruptcy free consultation
. More and more people are facing possible loss of funds and they have no idea where to go or what to do. This is one of the reasons I love knowing where to turn to to find the help that we might possibly need. If you or someone you know may be facing possible bankruptcy, pleases send them the link.

I am a firm believer to when it comes to having some experience under your belt in order to find more opportunities in the future. There are so many ways to learn a new trade and skill, especially online. I was looking through so many sites and skill and even found this school for massage therapy
which looks promising for those whom are interested in doing it. I have friends that are learning this and other training in the medical field. I am also thinking about picking up a new skill just in case I want to try something in the future that will pay me more.
