Getting better

Thank goodness for antibiotics! After about a week of suffering from congestion, broncitis, and nausea I'm starting to feel better! Just in time to make up a quiz and midterm from last week, take an exam in chemistry lecture and start a new chapter on nuclear chemistry, take a quiz in chemistry lab, and write a speech. Talk about a super busy week! My oldest daughter also goes to her 2nd staggered day of Kindergarten. She loves it, and was quite angry with me last week when I picked her up 'cause she had to go home. She wanted to stay there! I guess it's a good thing she likes school, and she likes that she gets to go to school like mommy and daddy. :) Only a few more weeks left in this quarter, then I'm taking fall quarter off. I need this time to find a new school, my tuition is just getting to be WAY to expensive. I wrote about it in one of my earlier posts. Anyways, had to write something to let my readers know I'm still around and surviving the crud. :) I also put up a new link for providence. I love it there! You can listen to the podcasts once you get to the website, it's so awesome, and there's a GREAT environment there with something for everyone. On their last MANday night (a group of men getting together on mondays) they had baby back ribs. They're constantly doing cool stuff like that, and giving you ways to 'connect' with others. Check it out, and maybe we'll see you around!

Christmas is coming!!! AHHHH!!!!

Ok, I'm starting to sell my Christmas ornaments as of now. The Christmas ornaments I sell are hand made and beaded. The pictures are below:







These are just a few sample colors. I have alot of different colors, and these are made to order. If you're wanting some before Christmas, please order early to make sure they get delivered on time. I only accept payment through paypal. I do this because it protects both of our information. If you are interested please email me at rjblueyes@yahoo.com. Please include in the subject line 'Christmas ornaments' so I don't accidentally delete it. I get quite a bit of spam. Lol. Also include in the email what colors you would like.

I also make 'Patitudes'. Patitudes are pillows with attitude! These are also made to order, so please order early to give enough time to ensure they will be there for Christmas. I can do sport team colors, or just your favorite colors! My kids love these 'cause they're just the right size( I like em cause they're durable). I also make a mini version for potpourri, which is great for in the bathroom. (If you have small kids they can't get into it) Just email me at the email addy above with 'Patitudes' in the subject line and with which colors you would like in the email. When I get pictures of them I will post them here in my blog. Happy blogging!

Need a good laugh?

Watch these videos below and I gurantee you will laugh. WARNING: May pee your pants, and you probably don't want to watch this with your kids on your lap. (slight cursing) If you'd like to see the newer Barak Obama video just scroll down a little on my blog. It's here. These are just a few of my favorite videos, you can see more on JibJab.com. Enjoy!

Halloween stuff

Ok. I went to the store to get my oldest MORE school supplies. Yes, that's right, I said MORE. The reason for this is that my oldest and middle daughters decided to tear the boxes of the crayons, pencils, and kleenex to decorate my living room. They also proceeded to 'decorate' my walls, and to pour glue ALL over the floor. I went into my bedroom for not even 5 minutes to get ready for school, and they had done all that. To those who still ask me why I smoke cigarettes, this is why:






Anyways, I couldn't believe it when I walked into the store and was bombarded by halloween stuff. Are you kidding me? We just got the kids into school! Give us parents a chance to breathe. It seems like they keep putting this stuff up earlier and earlier every year. Soon it will be halloween, then time will fly, we'll turn around and it'll be Thanksgiving. Then before you know it, Christmas. Yep, Christmas is in 18 weeks and 2 days. Alot of you probably hate me for saying that, but it's true! Soon the madness will begin.

Something Erie....

Hello readers and fellow bloggers,

I recently have read Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Anyone else read this extremely hard to follow book? We had to read it for our English Comp. w/Research class last quarter. If not for a handout our instructor had given, I doubt I would have even understood this Sci-Fi book. It was written back in the 1950's I believe, but you can kinda see how things are falling into place. Don't believe me? In this book he talks about how firemen are no longer our protectors from fire, but instead start fires. If a book, any book, is found in your house you are immediately turned in and your house burnt to the ground. I won't give too much away, just in case I have arroused your interest. Anyhow, what I was saying was, in this book they were talking about these giant walls that were like television screens. The book referred to them as 'The family'. Guess what panasonic has invented? A television so big that it actually takes up an entire wall! Here's the link if you don't believe me. See the picture for yourself. http://thehottestgadgets.com/2008/09/the-panasonic-life-wall-learns-your-preferences-001382

Pretty creepy huh? To those of you who have read this book, another little tidbit I found out. I used to live in Ohio, so I went to visit my family a few months ago. The libraries in Ohio are no longer being funded by the government. Many of them have to close thanks to the wonderful governor. Ted Strickland I believe. I don't know about you, maybe I'm just reading too much into it, but this is all a little close for comfort. What I want to know is how some guy back in the 1950's knew that someday we would have these giant 'walls' that were televisions. Now that's creepy.

High Hits

Hello fellow readers and followers,

I have been kept quite busy this past week with, well, everything. Life just seemed to happen. I will spare you the details. :) The major things that did happen was I went to register for fall quarter and they wanted like 1500 bucks! I was like WHAT?! Where am I supposed to pull 1500 bucks from? So anyways, I'm gonna be switching schools. I think it's actually for the better though cause then I can get stuff in order, maybe do some cleaning before christmas. Notice I said MAYBE. And what else... oh, I took my oldest daughter to meet her kindergarten teacher yesterday. It's a new school, and it looks awesome. Her teacher was really nice, and my daughter really seemed to like her. I also discovered a new site called High Hits. I'm not sure if this site really works yet. I guess I will see. If it does I will post a link for it, but I want to make sure it makes a difference for referrals. If anyone has had an experience with high hits, good or bad, please put it on my comments for my blog. I, along with anyone reading, would like to know if this site is really legit and if it really works. Thanks! Happy Posting!

Jib Jab video with president obama

Forgot...

K, I forgot to mention this site called Cafemom. It's just for moms(sorry dads). They have TONS of groups on there for every age, intrest, etc. There is especially one I like. The group is called Deals & Steals. I get lots of free stuff from there all the time! I actually just got free food from Schwans delivery service. They are gonna bring my free food right to my door! How cool is that? If you're a mom, you need to check it out. Also, most people don't know this, but walmart also has TONS of free samples. If you go to walmart.com, put samples in their search box for the site. A link for free samples will pop up, click on it. All their free samples will pop right up. I've gotten deodorant, gum, asprin, etc. Right now they have samples for nicorette, playtex, carefree, bodycology, viva napkins, etc. And if you don't want all that spam email use mailinator.com. It's a free email address you don't have to register for or anything. You just make up a name and put it in front of @mailinator.com(i.e. rjblueyes@mailinator.com) They also have other domain names you can use such as mailin8r.com, and my personal favorite- thisisnotmyrealemail.com. This saves me alot of time deleting spam from my personal email. One more thing... I have cashed out for yet another mypoints giftcard for Cracker Barrel. Ymmmmmmm....
Here's the link to see the mypoints giftcard pic (I copied my screen):)

Thaks for your opinions!

Lol, had to start off with the last comment I got on my font. Yeah, I know it's too big and oversized. But I like it that way so I don't have to squint to see my own writing. Thanks for the opinion though. Now for an update on my chemistry lab quiz. I totally bombed it. Everyone in lab thought it was going to be a quiz over the worksheets and procedures the professor had handed out, but it wasn't. He had made it seem that it was going to be over the worksheets when in fact it was like a quiz we would've had in lecture. That really stunk.... Anyways, I'm off this week from school, YEA! Catching up on school work though, the teachers assigned extra homework, ugh... hate when they do that! But in good news my 2 year old is getting somewhat potty trained. Today she decided to play in the toilet water with help from my 1 year old daughter no less(I know, it's pretty gross!), but at least the toilet was clean! This happened after all three daughters decided to enjoy a whole box of rice crispies for a mid morning snack. It was pretty fun sweeping it up 'cause you could still hear the rice crispies go "snap", "crackle", and "pop". The livingroom rug, couch, and chair were covered with them. But in a weird way they felt good on my feet. Like a mini foot massage. I think they actually made my feet softer, lol. Before I forget, thank you everyone for posting comments and reading my blog. I really appreciate it! Y'all come back now, ya hear! (lol, j/k)
