Facebook Appropriate

There have been a lot of questions and a lot of opinions lately on what is facebook “appropriate” and what is not so I thought I would share my thoughts.  Sometimes when I’m scrolling down through my newsfeed I just have to shake my head or roll my eyes at some of the stuff I…

The Power of the Tongue

We speak so much throughout a day. We speak to our family, our friends, our co-workers and just people we pass by. We have been speaking since before we ourselves can remember. Language was taught to us by someone older who hopefully and usually also teaches us the proper way to use this language. We…

Budget Update

I wanted to finish up the post I made about my budget.  I vowed to go two weeks without spending any money and today marks the 14th day.  I wanted to write down how good (and not so good) I did. I never went to target.  I never went to wal-mart.  I was able to…

Snowed In

Winter gave it’s last (hopefully) big push yesterday.  Roads shut down, driving ban through most counties, schools closed and businesses too.  Andy’s work closed for the first time in almost a decade.  He was headed back home before I even left for my shift at work.  It got worse as the day went on and…

Technology is such a double edged sword

Technology is growing at such a rate we can only try to keep up.  It seems that every day there is a new app…a new phone or some new gadget that every house just can no longer live without.  It really is amazing.  That doesn’t even count all of the advances made in medicine.  Sometimes…

Spring…is it ever coming?

This weather has been some of the toughest we’ve seen in years.  The cold days have been colder…the wind…harsher…the snow fall…barricading.  Now as we sit here in March we are all wondering if it will ever stop?  I try to think back to the winters that came before.  The ones where I actually wished for…

The Little Tug

My church has a service on Thursday nights, separate from that of Sunday mornings.  It’s way more laid back.  Sweatshirts are welcome and conversation is encouraged.  I used to go every single Thursday because I knew I couldn’t make it Sunday mornings because of work.  I’ve gotten away from that.  You know how it is…you…

Tupperware Parties

I decided to lighten it up a little today since the last few seemed a bit heavy. I was asked by a friend who sells make-up to come over and try a new facial technology, by way of a free facial. She needs opinions before she starts backing this stuff and needed someone to try….

Religion (this one is touchy)

I was struck today by something I read on facebook.  Social media is such a double edged sword it is so hard for me to say much about it.  At times I hate that it can so quickly bring misery to people by an unwanted photo circulating or words that are false appearing to be…

Budget (cont.)

It was a long day at work today with many tables to wait on and bellies to feed.  Once again I stayed up late with Andy last night so by the time my shift was over I was ready to crawl into bed at four in the afternoon….that’s almost what I did.  I mentioned in…
