It was a weird day. lol Drama in a group I am in. So hate when people cannot admit they did something wrong and then turn it into 'poor me'! There are certain tems and words that NO ONE should say or write. How hard is it to know this. Sadly I called the person on this offensive word and she just did not get it! I feel sad for her really. Oh well, maybe one day she will get it! Not my problem. She left and all is calm and friendly again!

My kids each had a friend over for the day. Six teenagers in the house!! I thought I would lose my mind, but it was a very nice evening. We got them all pizza, they jumped on the trampoline and played wii games. No fights...they are growing up!!

We have one friend still here and we keep hearing giggles and scream coming from the front room. I love the sounds! They are playing wii racing and having a blast! 

I love when the days can just be lazy days and we can all hang out. 
Hope everyone has had a nice weekend!!

  • Mood: PISSED!!!
  • Quotes: Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need, but not every man's greed ~ Mahatma Gandhi
I am wondering how people sleep at night knowing they are ripping another person off!!! KARMA GOD!!!!! United Healthcare is a dis-reputable company if I have ever seen one!!!

Pacificare was going to pay 80% for my $4836.60 Wheel-chariot. United Health care bought them out and now they say they will not pay the 80% because it was not authorized through them. WTF!!! This started in November of 2008. They are not going to honor this?? They have the doctors scrip, the medical code, and all the receipts they asked for. This has been going with UHC since february 2009, and now they tell me this. 

They obviously knew this from the get-go, but they still made me jump through the hoops getting all the info for them. How the hell do these greedy F**KS sleep at night? Oh wait, they have no scruples! Sadly they think that most will let it go, walk away. They take advantage of the disabled, the elderly. I will not walk away when being wronged. 

Well...wait 'til they get a load of me!

Ebay has lost my interest. Raising prices, never there to really help when you get ripped off, etc.
So, now, I will try selling some things here!
Drop in and check it out!!

In the Valley of Teenagers...

  • Quotes: You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance. ~Franklin P. Jones

In the Valley of Teenagers...

It's official, our house has now been taken over by teenagers. 
The girls turned 13 yesterday and Austin is 15...

Our lives are now over as we knew them. Makeup, boys, girls, dating, driving... should we just pull our hair out now or wait for it to fall out. I thought it was supposed to get easier as they get older. WRONG!!! 

Now we have to worry about the boyfriends...hmmmmm they better be afraid, very afraid. Not of the daddy, but of the mommy! HA! We do not worry to much about the boy as he is respectful of girls. My worry is how the 'girls' will treat him. They had better be nice! lol

I am still wondering where the time has gone. The past 13 years went by in a flash. It seems like yesterday they were reaching up asking to be picked up. Now the are reaching out asking for money! lol 

A new phase has started, a new beginning. Isn't that what life is about?

A couple of knitting fools...

  • Mood:
  • Quotes: A good friend is cheaper than therapy. ~Author Unknown

There are a couple of amazing blogs everyone should see.

Do you knit? Do you like knitted items?
Then these are the blogs for you.

First up is Susie. She is an amazing knitting fool! lol 
She made the most adorable fingerless hand warmers for my dd's and me. I am truly in awe of her talent.

Next is Beverly. I was her first interview for handmade news and she did a fabulous job. She also knits and I have my eye on a cute lil purse in her etsy shop.

So, do yourself a favor and drop by their blogs.
You will be glad you did.

I officially feel old...

  • Mood:
  • Quotes: Silence is a source of great strength. ~Lao Tzu

I officially feel old!!

I had to order compression socks today. I am having bad leg swelling due to the fact I sit for so long. I got two pair of knee highs and one pair of thigh highs. oooo lala lol

I am hoping this works as when they start to swell it can be painful. It feels like my legs are going to explode. My neuro checked for blood clots and there were none. So, hopefully, this will work for me. Kind of sucks though as I am more of a barefoot kind of girl! lol

I'll let ya know how they work out for anyone needing this as well.

And and update on my interview:


This is Beverly's blog, my interviewer. She is an awesome knitter. You should check out her etsy store. She also added a lil diddy 'bout my interview in her blog. So far I am the number one interview. woo hoo She is an awesome interviewer. Also check out handmade news to read more of her interviews.

I also want to apologize to my friends here, especially Holly and Haze. I am so sorry I have not been droppin' in right now. I do go and read, it's just my time sitting and being here is limited right now. I think of you ladies often and so hope you are both doing well. 

Will you both also email me as I lost all my contacts and want to re-add you to my emails. Thanks ladies! xoxo

Respect the NO!!

  • Mood:
  • Quotes: I feel about airplanes the way I feel about diets. It seems to me that they are wonderful things for other people to go on. ~Jean Kerr, "Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall," The Snake Has All the Lines, 1958

In a world with 'get thin quick' pills, supplements, herbal this and that...Respect the NO!! If your item works for you GREAT! But, if I say I am not interested...I am not interested!! Stop and move on please!

I know what works for me, just as you know what works for you. We are human beings and we need food, real food. We do not need sugar substitutes and drinks and all the odd supplements. We do not need fat free, sugar free...might as well call em health free. Really, think about it, processed foods in your body...how do they process them? hmmmm

I take the vitamins I need for my body and eat the foods that are right for me. I know my MS and frankly some of the 'miracle' things out there are toxic to my MS. I do not need an immune booster, that is my already my problem. You cannot cure my MS, as there is NO cure. I have an auto immune deficiency, some of the 'miracle' things can hurt this. I do not eat soy, gluten, or certain beans and nuts. They are BAD for me. Milk is not my friend either.

I try to be nice, but some selling these products can make me crazy. Please, do what is right for you, but do not tell me what is right for me, as you will be wrong!!

My hubby has researched for 2 years now on the ways to help me and my MS. I lost 20 pounds my way and felt awesome!! I ate real foods with real fats and real sugars and light exercise. Minus the gluten!! So, it worked and is working for me. I am so very happy your way works for you. Now plz, end it!!

Life is not about diets...it is about a healthy 'diet'! There is a difference.

Remember, many of these 'miracles' are dangerous for people with certain disorders. Be very careful when you push your wares.

Realize too, these drinks, pills, etc are made and processed into what you take. Really, how natural is it? I'm just sayin'...
