I was given the opportunity  to review a great new product.  First you all know how I complain about doing laundry! Well, Who doesn't?  One thing I have stopped doing over the years is, adding fabric softener to my dedicates.  Why?  because it leaves streaks on my dark pants!  Maybe that's just me BUT while reviewing the new Purex Complete Crystal Softener I took a leap of faith that possibly this would not happen.  And, guess what? It didn't!  Everything looked great and smelled great I am so COMPLETEly excited!

And the smell is so great.  I even poured my last load amount in a small candle holder and my living room smelled so awesome!

Purex Complete Crystals Softener is definitely softener reinvented!  I have to tell you upon opening this great product in its awesome pack, i was definitely inspired to get down and dirty with my laundry. I love for my towels to feel and smell fresh.  but not enough softener you cant smell the aroma too much they feels greasy.

Did you know that the oily residue left behind by traditional fabric softener can interfere with the absorbency of the fabrics?   I didn't I took on the, oily feeling, for the better smell!  Also, Purex Complete Crystal softer if the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children's sleepwear as it does not impair the flame retardant qualities?  I ever even thought of my softener in anyway effecting my clothes!

You can find the product right now in Walmart!  Give it a try! 

Yes! 92% natural!!!! How great is that?!!!!!

I am so excited as this is my first review and such a great product to review.  This mommy gives Purex Complete Crystals Softener a 10!

UHHH!!!!! Need I say more!

My eldest had a podiatrist appointment today after noticing her ties were curling in and her knees were touching. She had a deformity. Great, My middle suffers from absent seizures and my eldest has a deformity. BUT we can stop any long term effects with some shoe guards.  Basically, she has a flat foot which could cause huge bunions. All of this can not stop but cannot get any worse with some shoe inserts that cost 350.00$.

I'm going to get her whatever she needs.  I will do everything in my power to make this right for her.

But a question for those who had parents who were not there or just didn't pay attention.  Those who had those parents know what I am talking about.  How did we escape all of the stuff that we now pay so much attention to?  The little things, in some cases,  that would go on unnoticed?  All of us are such great mothers for caring so much
kudos to all of us.  KUDOS!!!

Time to relax

What a busy day it has been!  I always love to make a big breakfast on Saturday mornings. Today I tried to poach an egg, well that didn't go very well.  I wasted a 1/2 dozen of eggs before i decided to just give up.  I'm going to have to re watch Julie &Julia again!

I decided to scrub down the stove while the girls were at Girl Scouts. But you know when you decide to totally clean something it becomes a huge mess before it actually gets clean.  Yes, one of those simple tasks that should take 20-30 minutes but end up to be 3 hours.  Because once i decided to clean the stove, i decided to organize the pan cabinet which turned into organizing the plastics, silverware, utensils, baking, food cabinets.  Oh, and the fridge. By the time I was suppose to pick up the girls, an hour and half later, I was only done with two cabinets!  The plan was to do my grocery shopping before the girls had batting practice but that wasn't going to happen because my kitchen looked like a hoarder lived there.  So I came home finished cleaning the cabinets, never getting to the stove!  At least I know where everything is now!

So on to batting practice.  My oldest is getting so good at her stance she is really going to be a power hitter.  Of course I'm bias.  She is going to have a great season and is moving up a league.

By that time,  3:30  I figured I should make dinner then get to the store before this big storm hit.  The last thing I want to do is go out tomorrow!  Luckily right after I finished dinner, 5:00,  I had an unexpected visitor.  My dad!  I quickly made him a plate so he could sit with the girls and jumped on the opportunity to go to the store alone! Yay!  I came home finished cleaning the fridge and put the groceries away.  I was just about to sit down when the baby came out and said, "mommy I didn't do anything." OK, we all know what this means, right?  So I get up go in the other room and it smelt like smoke.  "What happened!?"  " I don't know I was watching Max and Rubie and the T.V. went POOF!"  My dad came in and investigated and sure enough the T.V. went POOF!. Great. Just Great.

Now the girls are showering and my dad left. The rain just turned into what looks like a blizzard with the duration of my post. I never got to laundry but at least my kitchen is spotless!

Have a good night everyone!


I bought my middle daughter this for christmas today.  I cant wait to use it!!!

I'm sad to report that I am on my way to a size 12.... Damn those cocoa crispies!!!!!

Wednesday, December 8, 2010


I got my braces tightened today boo... hurts so bad hopefully 2 more months and they will be off! Vanity is tough!

Speaking of looks, I am so disappointed in myself! Over the summer I was really sticking to eating better, going for walks, trying to stay active and stuff and I went down to a size 8. I was so excited and stayed at that size all summer. Then In October I decided to clean out my closet. What a chore! So I got rid of all my size 10 and 12's and gave them to my sister. She's got some junk in da trunk! But a cute little waist! Soo anyways living the good life in my skinny jeans was heavenly! All of a sudden somewhere between Halloween and November 1st everything was tight! The muffin top was back! And with a vengeance!! I've been using the cute belts around my waist to hold in the muffin! I WANT MY SIZE 10'S BACK!!!! All these people in the magazines and weight loss shows telling us to, " Get rid of your comfy pants, throw them away Don't look back!" Must not have a daughter who's birthday is on Halloween, with constant pizza party's and late night candy binging! Ehh, and it doesn't stop there! I felt so guilty of my Halloween pleasures I got stuck in a week long binge. Hence the bigger size and using rubber bands to keep my size 8's shut! Whats a girl to do? Sooooo, I invited my sister over tonight to help decorate the tree and to make rice crispy treats with the kids! She accepted of course, who doesn't like rice crispy treats? She will be here at 6 with her laundry!

Happy Monday!

What a slow going morning it has been and freezing! Well its a typical Monday for sure. Trying to get my self into work mode. it is really hard to do here sometimes because of you know who! I think i need to see a psychiatrist to figure out my problem with her. I am constantly telling my kids "worry about your self" why can I not follow my own advice?! I mean, Come on, I am a grown woman why does she get to me? So I have a few reasons I believe are my subconscious culprit.

1. she announced how much she gets paid. Who does this? Tell me one person who wasn't crunching those numbers in their head!
2. she is my age and still doesn't pay rent.
3. her ability to seem so busy when the boss walks through yet she is just on google chat. She always has a question ready too. My boss is to blame for this also. How can you not catch on after 3 years!!!!
4. Her horrible and when I say Horrible I mean HORRIBLE hygiene issues!! leaves dirty stuff everywhere!!

So these are just a few for now. I am going to continue to be pleasant for now I have to be, I have to feed my kids! Again, I do think this is a personal issue but i cant self diagnose myself. Until I can I will just have to believe it is all her and I'm a victim!!!

P.S. I am no longer allowed to get upset with my kids for loosing gloves for I have lost 3 pairs this month!

Where did November go???

Seriously?! I felt like one week I was dressing up as a witch (no costume needed) and the next week I'm busy baking a succulent juicy turkey(not me but the man)! Now I am trying to figure out what to buy my kids for Christmas.

So, somewhere in November me and the boyfriend decided to set good examples for our children, who sometimes seem ungrateful, and decided to volunteer our time to some local facilities. First I started at our church. The woman, who took a week to call me back, tells me they make there schedule 2 months at a time and that I can be put on the next schedule for January and February. I'm like Great! So she asks, " What time would you like 10:00am-12:00pm, or 12:00pm-8:00pm?" I'm thinking what? This is a food pantry people, I assume, or going there because they are down and out on their luck, why are they not doing this after business hours??? I proceeded to tell the woman none of those hours worked for me because I worked those hours. "OH" "you work?" Uh YA! if I didn't I would be calling to see when I could pick up some food!!! So that Didn't work out, thanked her told her if things change give me a call.

So next I decided to try the Internet. And I found all these articles about how crappy people are for only wanting to volunteer during the holiday seasons and how its just guilt and blah blah blah. But, I just wanted to show my kids that it is good to give and not just receive. So I found a site that notifies you when an opening for a job opens up. Haven't heard a thing! So I am still working on it but for now I am just giving a dollar here and there to charities at the registers.

I did do a Turkey Trot on thanksgiving Morning. It was great! The proceeds benefited the epilepsy foundation, my daughter suffers from seizures, and it was put together beautifully. Thank god the cold front did not come through until after the race was over!

As for everything else! Co-worker is still driving me nuts! Have you ever just wanted to shake someone and tell them snap out of it? Ya, that's how I feel with her. But i think that her ways are permanent no shaking her out of it!

OHHHH Black Friday shopping!!!!!!!!! OMG I only bought for myself! Im horrible then had to stash it around the house so I don't get in trouble by the Man! heheheh my laptop will be here soon! Anyone know a good hiding place???
