I know

that I disappeared for a bit. Life gets crazy sometimes. It's funny how I run my butt off more now than I ever did when I worked a 9 to 5 job. That's okay. I'll survive....maybe! This will be just a quick let everyone know I'm still alive. I ordered some more candle supplies so I hope to have new candles for sale soon! I'm very excited about a signature line I'm working on but it's top secret for now! I've also updated my application at the school board. Who would have thought it would be so hard to get hired as a lunch lady? I'll be back later!

Want an OMG read?

Then you have to read J.R. Ward's The Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It's freaking awesome! I can't put them down. I'm starting the third book now and I think I might not sleep tonight just so I can read! Yep, it's that good! Go check um!

Back to school

School is back in. Joey had a great first day. Thankfully! It's still hard to get up when that alarm goes off at 6am. I'm trying to get back on track and get in bed by 10pm. That's easier said than done. Maybe tonight I can pull it off.

My friend Jen tried to give me a heart attack yesterday. Lets just say it involved driving and sleeping! Those two things just don't go together! Here's praying I make it home in one piece today.

My nephew, George, is doing well following his hernia surgery. Poor baby is only 2 years old. But at least now everything is fixed and the recovery is under way. I'm wishing him a speedy one!

I'll check back in later tonight if I get a chance. Later.

New Candles! 100% Pure Soy Wax

6 oz 100% Pure Soy Wax Candle in Hawaiian Bounty - $6 plus shipping
9 oz Mason Jar 100% Pure Soy Wax Candle in Hawaiian Bounty - $8.50 plus shipping

I started to make the candles to help with the boredom I faced thanks to my surgery. But I've also found it's very therapeutic and helps with the stress I seem to always find myself under. The first patch was a bit of trial and error. But I've tweaked those problems and found a scent I LOVE!!! It's called Hawaiian Bounty and simply smells wonderful! I'm hoping to get a list together soon of all I have for sale. But in the mean time, I wanted to post a few pics.

For those who said

Life isn't fair, they sure didn't lie. Life most certainly is NOT fair. Just have to accept it and believe that everything happens for a reason.

Catching up

It's been a few days since I blogged. To be honest, depression sucks and it has taken a toll on me as of late. I normally don't indulge in pity parties but one simply couldn't be helped. But I'm back and here's what's been going on.

We found out today that my sister is having a boy. Go boys! She is 33 weeks and her due date is October 4th. Everything looks good and healthy so that's a blessing. For now she is planning on naming it Michael after her father.

Tomorrow is Joey's open house. We get to do all the good stuff like meet the teacher and see who all is in the class. So hard to believe that my little man is going into the 4th grade. They grow up quick. My niece is heading into the 6th grade! I'm getting way to old.

My in laws should get wings as they have been heaven sent. My grandma's house was in desperate need of a new roof. It leaks so bad that buckets were everywhere and damage as been done to the interior. Because of Grannys' age, no one would give her a loan to get a new roof put on. But my mother in law was talking to her brother about it and he rallied the troops! So far they have fixed all the leakes except for in one bedroom and they are coming back out on Saturday to fix that. So to Mom, Uncle Steve, and Chuck, I can't say thank you enough! Love you guys!

Ready for the latest saga with my van? Jason believes my fuel pump is going because it dies and takes me a couple of tries before it finally turns over. Then my transmission is slipping and jamming. It doesn't want to go into gear all the time and then when it does it gives me whiplash. So for those who always think I'm joking about getting a bus pass, I'm telling you it's only a matter of time.

To round out the blog, we'll discuss the knee. It sucks. The surgery did not correct the problem so I feel more than depressed about the fact I went through it for nothing. Therapy is how we discovered the problem was not fixed. And here I thought therapy was supposed to make you better. My luck.

So, I'll try to get my butt back into gear and keep up with daily post. Later.


Seen the New Moon trailer and it freakin rocked. So to all my guys out there who want to trash my Twilight, I have two words for ya...Suck it! Of course, I'd love to tell Edward that but that would start a whole new blog. Later!

Dog Days of Summer

Wanna know what I woke up to this mornning? The smell of dog crap! Blackie had diarrhea the night before but I honestly didn't think to much of it. Between my four dogs, every now and again one of the them will get the runs for absolutely no reason but it normally only last for one potty outing then normal plumbing starts working again! But the last time I took him out before bed, he had bloody diarreha. Not good. I put papers down, just in case he couldn't hold it until morning. That was smart thinking! Unfortunately, Blackie had so many accidents that he used up all the paper and then moved to my rugs. Jason took him to the vet this morning and after a ton of bloodwork and a ton of fluids and shots, he is resting back at home. The verdict was that something poisoned him. Living where I live, that could be anything. But the good news is that we caught it in time to flush it out of his system. He's on three different types of medication for the next 10 days and has to eat only chicken and rice until his stomach can handle solid foods again. My poor big protector!

I think the therapist tried to kill me today. I swear! I was pouring sweat when I left therapy and my knee is killing me. I know I told him that I wanted to be pushed but I didn't mean to death! I go back on Monday at 7am! That is my last Monday of summer vacation and I have to get up early. So not happy about that! Then from there I have a 9 am appointment with my knee doc. I've lost hope of him saying anything positive about my knee!

Hope you all have a great weekend! I'm going to work on my candles tonight! I'm excited! I'll post pics too once I get some done. Later!
