Grocery store rage

So just about 15 minutes ago, Brooklynn, Myles and I were at Hy-Vee getting some dinner and I remembered that I have to sign a WIC check. So I purchased my steelhead trout, rice and other items for dinner, then I made my way to the customer service counter. Now at the Blue Springs Hy-Vee there are two portions to the counter, there is the Money Services side and then customer service side. Knowing that I didn't need the money services side I stood in line on the customer service side. As I was standing there, an elderly lady in a motorized shopping cart started yelling that she was behind the gentleman that I was standing behind. She also said that there was one line for the whole counter, that I cut in front of her... Now many of you know me, and know that I have a small attitude...So I told her very nicely that I was standing in the customer service line, and that she was standing in the Money services line. She started to argue with me, so I start to ignore her. She raises her voice making a scene, by now the gentleman that is in front of my and his two daughters are getting involved with the little elderly lady. She goes on and on how she just got out of the hospital because she had lung surgery. OK... I'm going to state something here... if a person just got out of the hospital from lung surgery, they sure as hell are NOT going to be outside with wind that is at least 12 mph with the temp at 18 degrees. Now, the lady that is behind me is looking at me ans she says "really, this is what this lady is mad about? A stupid place in the line? I have better things to do with my life than to worry about a stupid place in line!" I agreed with her and went about standing in line. It got to my turn I did my business, told the lady behind the counter to have a great rest of her day and went home. Now correct me if I am wrong, but there are more important things in this life that a place in line. I feel sorry for this elderly lady, if she is worried about a place in line, she is worried about the wrong things. Just remember folks, it is a place in line, it isn't life and death, we are all going to be helped when we can! 

There will be more posts later, I have new things to try and books that I have to review!!!

Influenster free items!!

This is the latest funtastic FREE  item that I have received from Influenster!!! Palmolive  Fresh Infusions!!! OK, so at first smell, I was not impressed at all. I didn't like any of the scents. In fact I really didn't want to try them at all. But, I took a chance on the Ginger and White Tea dish soap. I did a sink load of dishes last night and it smells great!!! It gets all of the grease and what not off of the dishes, and it leaves your hands very soft! I had to let a dish soak over night so I added a little of this soap to it. I expected to wake up in the morning and have to redo the whole process over of adding more soap to the dish to wash it... NOPE!!! I added more water and it started to suds up again! I didn't have to add any more soap to wash it, and it still had a great scent to it! I am so glad that I did try this! Thank you Influenster for the free bottles of Dish soap. Now the only problem is who do I give the other ones to. In the box I received one coupon for a $1.50 off a bottle, 3 free bottles: Ginger White tea, Lime Basil, and Lemon Thyme, and an information card!!!!

Oh when does it end?

     When you have kids, and they are sick, you feel helpless.  You can't do anything to make them feel any better. All you can do is hope and pray that the medicine that the doctors office prescribes you starts to work quickly. In the mean time, you go through boxes of tissues, lots of tears even more laundry than you want to do. There are tons of holding and kisses, lots of rocking back and forth. Orange juice and crackers, chicken noodle soup and sleeping as much as you can. Then after all of that it seems like the illness isn't going away. Tonight, my son has gone through 3 outfits, several diapers, and now has a diaper rash, has had his medicine, and is now sleeping (for the time being).  My daughter doesn't have what we have. She is strong and doesn't want to be sick. All she wants to do is cuddle with her doggie.

     In the meantime, I have decided to partake in the Polar Bear plunge. I need to get sponsors and raise $150 bucks! It is going to a great cause. Even me being on disability I donated!! If any of you that read this please help me out! I am going to be jumping in a very cold lake on most likely a very cold day in January. The link to my donation page is: Polar Bear Plunge Donation page!!!. Anything you can donate would help out!

     It is time to get off of here and get to either reading or resting more. I hope you all have a great night!

Sick, sick, sick

So the sickness is still going strong. Brooklynn is now showing symptoms of the flu. I went to urgent care yesterday and tested positive for infuenza B. I am writing you from the doctors office for my kiddos because Myles is still not feeling well, and now brooklynn isn't feeling to well. They have me on all sorts of stuff, my tummy hurts and is upset, all I want to do is sleep and stay at home and get better. Please pray that my family and I get better quickly.

My family is sick:(

Since Saturday morning Jay has not felt well... Thursday, Myles got his 4 month shots. Of course they gave him a fever and now he has a cold. Brooklynn started not feeling well on Saturday, she couldn't keep anything down yesterday, and today isn't much better. I'm the only one so far that isn't ill. But that is going to change. I started getting a cough this morning. Please pray I don't get ill, and pray my family gets better.

Awake with Myles

My baby boy got his 4 mo shots yesterday (1/3/13), and now today (1/4/2013) he has been running a fever. He hasn't slept really well today, and when he does sleep it is for an hour at a time, which means I don't get to sleep.  He as also been congested. Coughing mucus up. His lungs are clear, just congested. I feel bad that there is nothing that I can do to make him feel better except cuddle with him.

beef knuckle...

ok, so I have a golden retriever puppy (ok she'll be one on the 20th), and she goes thru bones like they are paper, so we thought we should get her larger bones... So that is what we did. We got her a beef knuckle. It smells bad, but she hasn't gone thru it yet. There is still 90% of the knuckle left. So. Hope she can keep this one longer than a few days! More hopefully tomorrow!

My new years resolution!

So I started my New Years resolutions today! I wrote them out and I have come up with 8 different ones! The first one is a food journal. I have started that today, and for the day I have 61 calories remaining, and that is before I have done any hard exercising! Just preparing breakfast and dinner and doing some laundry have added to the exercise log. The rest of them are get rooms clean and organized, keep up with the laundry, start exercise regime, read at least 1 new book a month, keep up with the house work, keep my grades up in school, and be a better mommy.  I think that I am very capable of accomplishing all of these! I hope that I can just keep them! My sisters wedding is coming up in October, and I don't want to embarrass her. I want her to be proud of me!
