So Majestic!

I'm browsing around researching a potential client and found the most amazing tapestries at The Wildlife ones are gorgeous! Go check out the elephant one, or the lions. They are so majestic! You can see them at I have to get back to work now. I lost an hour already just browsing through that website. YIKES!

Hey Twitter folks!!

Hey, sign up to SponsoredTweets and make some money tweeting!

New Vege Lifestyle

Well, meat is now history for me! I watched a video that has pretty much turned me off forever. I mean, WOW!! Hubby doesn't understand it but he hasn't seen the video. I figure out 3 yr old vegetarian had seen it in the womb or something as if you try to put meat on his plate, he eats around it. I always thought he had issues with being picky but turns out he knew something already that I didn't.

I will be participating in VeganMOFO III next month. This will give me a chance to try out all the new recipes and whatnot that I have been wanting to try. Will have digital camera in hand to experience the joys of kids(and hubby's) faces as we remind ourselves that mom probably shouldn't be in the kitchen! lol

I will also be heading more into the Vegan rather than the Vegetarian. What they do to dairy cows and chickens is appalling and I don't want to be any part of it. I will test out a new something or another on a regular basis and give my honest, probably to opinionated opinion on it. Its my blog so if I hate it, you will definitely know it. Let's hope that is not the case.

I am still on my coffee hunt too. I tried the Starbucks DoubleShot Espresso & Cream awhile back and still haven't had a chance to update on that. Did you know that it does not have Caffeine listed as an ingredient? LOL

Ok, well, have lots of work to do today so will talk to y'all later! Till then...Live, Laugh, and Love!

Wow, I've been busy....

Ok, well, good news! That bad day only lasted one day and perked right up. I have so much going on that I had no choice but to get back to life. Working through Elance has true been a blessing for me and my family. Not just in the money it brings in, but also the fact that it gives my mind something to concentrate on when I need it the most. I am currently bogged down with it though. Working 10-12 or more hours a day, 7 days a week plus trying to keep up on school work, kids, and life in general. BUT, I am going to get my teeth fixed, I am going to get me an uber fast computer, and if hubby gets his crap together and gets the stuff done that I gave him to do and continues to help over the next few months, he gets to open a car lot. Yeah, yeah, we live in a town of 300 but he has a good concept. Cheap, ugly cars that RUN. No money down, no credit check, no payments! You are not going to find a brand new Chevy Aveo or anything of the sort, but you will get something you can afford and that will get you where you need to go without breaking the bank and without having that problematic car payment each and every month for years.

So, anyway, between work and the darts game I am now addicted too(see, I am busy busy busy and loving every minute of it!

Hope everyone is well. Drop me a line and say hi! And, as always, Live, Laugh, and Love!

Going to be a bad day....

Ok, well, some of you know that I am bi-polar and that I have my ups and downs like most people but mine are ups and downs on steroids or crack or something. The cool part about that is no matter whether I am up or down, I thrive on my business side. It's a place to focus and over-achieve I suppose, but really, the more stressed I am, the better I am. My personal ups and downs aren't nice at all though and they can be extreme. You also know that there have been some happenings in my life over the last 3 years that do not help matters any, some being too recent to just forgive although I am trying. Recently, I'm fighting a lot to keep my down times to a minimum. It's not easy based on what I am dealing with in my personal life and none of it is in my control which is never a good thing as far as me personally goes. Control is what has kept me off medication. It is a MUST and when other people mess with that because they "can't help it", I "can't help" but wonder why I subject myself to it and all the other things that I have put up with over the years. No normal person would. Hey, I have an excuse. I'm already messed up and, even before I was diagnosed, people thought I was not quite normal. How many 5 years olds do you know who can quote Shakespeare? Hmmmm... I just need to deal with everything so here I am mouthing off in my blog. It's my blog, so I can say what I want, right? I will get over the fact that other people's actions are very hurtful and sometimes it's really hard to get passed that hurt. I really REALLY am trying but with almost painful results. It will get better. It always does.

Anyway, today is going to be a bad day. I already slept(if you can call it that)half the day away. I've got my music on helping me deal with it. To me, some songs express my feelings for me when I can't. They help me work through things. I listen to them in my headphones so as to keep it to myself most of the time as it really doesn't help anyone but me.

So, on my playlist today:
Always ~ Bon Jovi
Tell Her ~ Lonestar
When She Cries ~ Restless Heart
Can I Trust You With My Heart ~ Travis Tritt
Anymore ~ Travis Tritt
Best of Intentions ~ Travis Tritt
Live Like You Were Dying ~ Tim McGraw
A Perfectly Good Heart ~ Taylor Swift
I Knew I Loved You ~ Savage Garden
Good As I Was To You ~ Lorrie Morgan
I'm the fool in love with a fool ~ LeeAnn Womack
Maybe he'll notice her now ~ Lonestar and Trisha Yearwood
She Wouldn't Be Gone ~ Blake Shelton
To Make You Feel My Love ~ Garth Brooks

Well, that is a partial list. Like I said, bad day. Travis Tritt is my friend. lol. You'd think those who cause the hurt over and over again which lead to the bad days would be more apt to comfort and do everything it takes to prevent it to begin with but I will handle it on my own like I always do. Things have changed though. The nightmares are back and I can't silence them. Sleep is unrestful and it's all getting the best of me. We will see what the days have in store I suppose.

Back to work....I have a million and one things to do for my clients this week still. I just needed to rant a bit and have a conversation with, well, me I suppose. Luckily I have work to keep my mind and heart from racing.

Remember, no matter what, Live, Laugh, and LOVE!

A quicky update and a favor!

Hey folks! Long time, no post. Sheesh, I have been busy. I still haven't had a moment to update everyone on our trip to Vegas or the fact that I moved in a live-in nanny or that my youngest son just started PreK, or the biggest news so far that the BABY will be turning 1 on Friday!!! OMG!! Where does the time go?

I'll be having another contest or ten here in a short while so you want to make sure that you are keeping up on the posts. Based on my current schedule, it could literally happen at ANY TIME!

In the meantime, you see that new little Facebook Fan widget over on the right? Please go click on it and fan Karianna's page. She's my solar cooker lady and I absolutely love the one my hubby got me for my birthday. The fact that Karianna is an absolutely wonderful lady to chat with is a big deal as far as us deciding to buy this particular one.That thing is an absolute life saver nowadays with my Freelance career having taken off and it being too hot to actually cook anyway. The time and energy savings alone are helping with that live in nanny expense I mentioned above! HEHE....

So, just so you know, I'm not going to turn this into a Sponsored Post or Pay Blog completely. I SWEAR! Some things come up that are just too good to pass up and, with the economy the way it is, I know you will understand the occasional Paid For or Sponsored Post. I will never say anything that I don't completely agree with as the one thing I am is truthful(to a fault sometimes). You will always get an honest review of whatever it is and I will always try it, whatever it is, first before writing anything about it!

Well, I am currently sitting in Denny's drinking coffee and working several projects for clients waiting for hubby to get out of school so I will end this now and wish you a happy night!

Till I get a couple more minutes, LIVE, LAUGH, and LOVE!!
