As I sit here I’m thinking about a family who lost there daughter,sister,cousin granddaughter, and Friend this weekend to a tragic end!
Its sad how one person and just lose it and murder someone as sweet and lovable as this young lady was. I am so grateful to have gotten to know her and her family.
But now I sit and wonder how do you move on when you don’t have an answer to why this has happened? Do you ever get over it!
I know many years ago I lost my uncle to Murder. It was a messy time in my life and to think then I was just a little girl. I remember waking up daily and wondering why him as I do now for Brooke!
Why?? Do we ever really get the answer we want to hear? Honestly I really don’t think we do!
We look for answers that make us happy but when we lose a love one we aren’t happy for what seems like forever!
Bringing me on to Death in general!
I know everyone loses a close family member or friend in their life time. I have seen death many times and many people have dealt with it in their own way! Me I like to be left alone to think of the memories and turn to music. It doesn’t matter what kind of music anything normally works just something to help me zone out!
I feel so much grief right now for Brookes family and I look at my child and think when shes 21 or any age I myself could be in Brookes families shoes!
Makes me wish my child would never grow up! Never know the hurt of the world. Never see how truly horrible some people in this world really are!
I myself can only do what I know is best. Make sure she grows up happy and never miss a sign of anything that could be wrong! I know I am not a super mom (I totally wish I was) I don’t plan on being on I just hope that one day when she loses a friend like I have lost along the way it shapes her to be a better women in the end!

In the past few weeks I’ve realized how electronic dependent our kids are these days! Every day I hear from my 8 year old “can I use the computer?”
Of course I say no but it doesn’t make a difference she has a tablet and a phone that has no time to make calls just so she can play a few games. I have enabled her! I make it worse.
When we tell her to go outside we hear all kinds of excuses. It drives us completely insane! So now I wonder what I can do to make her do a little more creative stuff. I guess its off to pinterest! This year I think that I will take time out and make us both get outside more!
A change in life for us both! More fresh air and healthier new year. They say you for you to see change you need to want and do that change. I am completely okay with this I want to so my daughter that life goes on outside of Electronics.
I say lets all put down the electronics and show the kids of today what is was like when we were younger. Do you remember coming home when it got dark and not having to wait for a call on the CELL to remind you to be home? Running around outside chasing fireflies?
Oh the memories of being young just came flooding back to me! Oh how I miss those days. How many of you wish you could go back to those days and nights? I know I totally would love it!
How many of us say this every year? I know I must say it at least a few times a year! Its already 10 days into the new year and it seems like its the same as last year. Im not sure how to make everything run smoother and keep the house ya know spotless so I don’t have to clean daily!
How many of you made the dreaded New Years Resolution?? I skipped this year, I don’t see the point. Every year we make resolutions and not many of us actually stick to them.
Simple list of common resolutions
- Loss weight
- Save more money
- Budget better
- spend more time with family
Yet how many of us actually follow through? So now I sit here and think maybe I’ll just try to make my year a little better! Small steps ya know?
I wonder how many of you have been scratching your heads trying to find that perfect costume for this years Halloween party! With that in your mind how many will go out spending $30 or more dollars to get the outfit that who knows how many other people will have. Why not get creative I mean yes I know its almost time for the parties and the fun but next year think a head get your outfit going. Imagine how awesome you’ll look creating your own costume and the money you’ll save.
Now for the tricky part oh the kids! My daughter took 3 weeks to find what she wanted switching and always trying to find the better costume then the kids in her class. Finally finding what she wants to be. After then 2nd year of the “I don’t know” game I believe next year I’ll be creating her costume as well. Lots of planning but again cost saving.
Do any of you make your own customes? I’d love to heat about them. And be able to share your ideas with others in the world
Its been a while and I am truly sorry on that! Here I am back and ready to take action! In the past few months I have come across some amazing products and companies. Products that I will be reviewing and just making some points about not to help anyone or for free just because I myself believe in these products! I am now a stay at home mom full time. My daughter is in school full time but while she is in school I take care of my father who only needs minor things randomly! In the next few months I will be reviewing products or sites what ever I may find that will help you guys and gals in the long run either with products you want or things that will help you work from home or make some extra money. So with that being said if you want anything you might want me to look into please feel free to ask me! I will be blogging daily maybe multiple times if I can! I am here to help you!
It is so hard for me to think that my little baby is not so little anymore. My daughter will be starting the first grade in September. So not ready for my baby to grow up, but then again what parent is? I remember being little and thinking summer was never long enough we needed more days off to play with our friends and have fun. My daughter on the other hand is all sorts of ready for school to start. Trust me that’s not a bad thing and I love how excited she is. Plus I work nights so that means more sleep for momma when shes in school. I was talking to my fiance the other day about how things have changed in 9 years since I graduated high school he doesn’t see the difference as he’s years younger then me and just left school not many years ago. Uniforms where something we heard they were gonna give us yet here i am buying them for my daughter along with a clear back pack. Seriously what has our world come to a bunch of crazy people that make it so we can’t even trust our own kids these days! its sad really I do worry every day she gets on the bus as to what might happen these days its a thought that has crossed most parents minds at least once. I believe that leaving her home and doing homeschooling will not do her any good so off she must go. She needs to branch on her own and learn how to live her own life not the life of hiding behind walls. And don’t get me wrong the people who do homeschool there children more power to you i give you credit because it can’t always be easy! I do some days wish i could but i know that its something she doesn’t want. Yes i know i’m the parent and i make the rules however i feel that if she wants to go to school in a public place more power to her. However if she came home the next day and said home school me id do it in a heart beat
