So today is the start of my 30 days of projects challenge. I haven't worked out all the details yet, but I have decided to make use of my Pinning on Pinterest and actually make some of the interesting Pins they have on that site.

I have a tendency to like things on the Internet and create bookmarks with the intention of going back to them in good time, but then things happen and life gets in the way so we don't do them and they get forgotten, but not this time, this time I am doing this for 30 days. Everyday I will do a new pin project and see how it turns out. They can be anything from recipes to crafts, to things for the kids, to even taking a tutorial and trying it out for myself. I need something to get me active and this seems like a great place to start.

So today I made play dough for my son using Jello. Strawberry Jello to be exact. It smelt wonderfully and it turned out pretty great as well!! It makes a fair amount so I am thinking I will try to Kool-Aid Play dough re…

There are crazy people living in my head......

Ok these people aren't all crazy but they are driving me crazy.... Yes CRAZY!!

For as long as I can remember I have LOVED writing and I have wanted so badly to be a published author.  Often I read books and I am like, "Oh I could have written this!"  and then I will think on it for a few days and nothing comes of it.  Or I will start writing out a few details and get a chapter or two written, and then other things get in my way and I stop writing. 

As from my previous post, I have run into a major block!!  I always feel weird just blogging about what my children and I are doing because as much as I want to immortalize our memories together some of them are and should be just for us.  So unless it's a craft or fun activity I think others should try or a funny story because my children are sometimes very funny, I don't know when I will get to blogging about them again.

I like to be organized in my blogging, I like to feel like my blogging has a purpose.  I felt co…

Disaster has STRUCK!!! HELP ME!!

OMG it is a disaster!!! A horribly, terrible, irreparable travesty!!!  I have lost something incredibly dear to my heart!!!  My desire to write has left me!  It's lost, gone, disappeared from existence.  I am now tail spinning into a dark funk, one of which I am scared I will be sucked into never to return again.

Yesterday, last weekend and many days last week, over the last three weeks really, I opened Internet Explorer and loaded my Blogger Dashboard and quickly returned to Facebook, or Twitter or Pinterest, you know whichever website was also open on my desktop.  I had nothing to write, I wanted to write, but deep inside me buried under all kinds of other feelings was a desire to write, but my mind and my hands would not cooperate.  I would have loved to have written anything, about an outing to a park with my son, my reviews of some of the shows I watched, my ideas of survivor, even a fictional piece would have been ok, but I could not get any words out onto the keyboard.


It's a Wrap!!

Big Brother Season 13 has come to an End!! An exciting, thrilling, pee my pants end!! Rachel won the first part of the final HOH and then Porsche won the second part, then Rachel and Porsche went head to head and Rachel pulled out the win!!!


Then we had some jury questions and the jury voted, it was a 4-3 win for Rachel.  I thought it should have been a 5-2, but Adam went and threw his vote away.  Adam became a horrible player in the end.  He said he wouldn't have felt right to be sitting at the end if he didn't win, and he didn't so he should have voted for the person who played the best game which was Rachel through and through.  Even Dani voting for Porsche, was a totally popularity vote, Rachel played a better game hands down, and deserved the votes, but because Dani didn't like Rachel, she didn't vote for her.  Poor pissy pants Dani Donato.  She is a terrible sport!!

I was thrilled when Rachel won, and I was thrilled when Jeff won Americ…

A new Ride, the Big Brother Roller Coaster

It has been awhile since I last posted any Big Brother updates, and that is because the show took me on a roller coaster of disbelief and anger.

From Season 11, I have been a Jordan and Jeff fan and when they came back this season I got right back on board cheering for them.  I have friends that think Jeff is arrogant and they feel he thinks everyone should just bow down to him, but I don't see that.  I see him as someone who is confident in who he is, and he may not always be right but he's not afraid to stand up for his beliefs regardless.  Jordan is just too cute, she is a naive, and maybe a little, I don't want to say dumb, but she is not always on the same page of reality that everyone else is.  But I still love her, she makes me laugh and she seems like a genuine character, I do believe that the way she behaves in the house would be the same behaviour you see when you see her in her hometown.  In Season 12, I took to liking Rachel, there was her arrogant behaviour an…
