30 Days of Truth - Day 9

Day 9 - Someone you didn't want to let go of but they drifted away.

This isn't one specific person but more of a group. Just after I got married (like 3 days later) I moved out of state with my husband to the base he was stationed at. There was a group of my friends that hung out together often previously that after I left they never really ever hung out together any more.  On visits home I would try to get everyone together and it always feel through. Individually I still talk to most of them but we have never hung out as a group again.

Another Awesome CSN Review Coming Up!

I was contacted again recently to do another awesome review for CSN Stores since I am a "Preferred Blogger". How cool is that!

CSN Stores is one of if not the best site for online shopping.  Their site has everything for dining tables, to baby and kid furniture, to shoes for the family, and even kitchen sinks! I don't know where else you would be able to find that much variety in one place!

I'm not sure what I am going to get to review this time but as soon as I figure it out I will let you there in the blogsphere know!

Photobucket

Thanks Mamarazzi for hosting another awesome swap!

30 Days of Truth - Day 8

Day 8 - Someone who made your life hell or treated you like shit!

This one goes way back in the day to high school. The few bitchy girls on the dance team with me that started all kinds of nasty rumors about me. I had a fragile self esteem back then and they broke me down repeatedly and made what should have been a fun thing into a nightmare!

Now days I don't have that issue.  People like that promptly get told where they can shove it.

30 Days of Truth - Day 7

Day 7 - Someone who has made your life worth living for.

This one was a toss up between my little guy and my big guy.  But when it came down to it I would have to say my big guy, my husband, my rock, Mike makes my life worth living.  While I live everyday for my son, if it wasn't for my husband I wouldn't be where I am so I can live for him.

My husband picked me up when I was down and showed me that my life was worth so much more than what I was making of it. He supported me both literally and emotionally when I was diagnosed with MS. He is there for me when I get down on myself for all those reasons I have mentioned before.  He is everything to me.

And yes some of you are reading this saying how corny and cliche that all was, every word of it is the truth!

Honey I don't know where I'd be with out you!

Hump Day Review - A Day Early!

This week I was contacted by Eden Fantasys to see if I wanted to do a review of one of their products. Having a small "toy box" in our bedroom I decided to take them up on the offer.


Since last time I reviewed something just for me, I thought I would review something for me and me husband this time.  For something different I decided to try 101 Nights of Grreat Sex board game. Briefly let me just say if all the nights turn out like the first time we played this game, it lives up to its name and then some!

Day 6 - Something you hope you never have to do.

30 Days of Truth - Day 5!

Day 5 - Something you hope to do in your life.

Very easy. I want to give up the Mon-Fri office life and become an event planner! I love love love planning events. But our current situation does not allow it. Hopefully once my husband finishes school and gets something more than an entry level job we will be in a situation I can do that.

Oh yeah I want to throw myself out of a perfectly good airplane with a big piece of fabric strapped to my back! 30th birthday look out!

30 Days of Truth - Day 4

Day 4 - Something you have to forgive someone for.

I need to forgive my mom for leaving me to fend for myself when I was 17 years old. Although realistically I probably wont be able to do that completely until the debt I accrued those first few years is completely paid off.

What happened was she was going through a mid life crisis and decided to move to Florida as soon as I graduated high school but I was not invited to move with her. Most of you think as she did not a big deal you where out of high school. But need to consider the other circumstances, I was only 17 (I have a late birthday), I didn't have a good job, I didn't have any family locally to move in with and she wouldn't sign off that I was an independent minor so I could get financial assistance for my college. So I had to find an apartment that would rent to a 17 year old, so as you can guess my rent was a bit higher than it would have been otherwise (can you blame them I'd want to cover my ass too). Find a job that would pay enough to cover my rent and insurance, then everything else went on credit. Between school and credit cards I was in debt for almost 15 grand in 2 years! By the time I was making enough to cover all my expenses it barely left enough for me to pay the minimum on my debt. It was so bad that I considered filing for bankruptcy at 20! Luckily I didn't.  But because of all of this I am now almost 30 and just now seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

But sorry this wasn't supposed to be about all that it's about the fact I need to forgive her for it.  But as you can see this is a long road to be able to forgive for and it doesn't help when she's still a flak and can't even manage to be around for big events of her only grandchild, he only gets baptized once, only has 1 first birthday, etc.

Bitter - Who me? No! Not at all...

30 Days of Truth - Day 3

Day 3 - Something you have to forgive yourself for.

Something I am learning to forgive myself for is the fact I can't do everything I want to / think I can do and not get mad at myself for it. My MS has become more evident over the last year and a half and has limited me in some ways and that really pisses me off. I have all these things in my head to go do then I start to do them and realize that it's not going to work because I don't have enough energy or enough strength and that makes me angry! But I need to forgive my body for not being able to do everything I want it to do. It's a really long hard path of realization of what my limits are and being ok with those limits. I'm working on it but it's so hard to forgive my body for treating its self like this and causing so many issues.

30 Days of Truths - Day 2

Today is day 2 of 30 days of truth for me. Today is something I love about myself.  Hmm something I love about myself?  There are somethings I like about myself but love that's a bit harder. Let me think on this.

Alright Got One!
Day 2 - Something I love about myself!
I love that when I am determined about something nothing will stand in my way! The example I am most proud of was labor with my son.  I decided I was not going to take any pain meds and even when they pumped me up with pitocian I still didn't take any thing and I did just fine. My whole pregnancy everyone (including my dr.) that I would give in and take the pain meds. Well 10 hours or pitocian induced labor and not one drop of meds and I was fine.  That's what happens when I am determined - I make it happen!

30 Days of Truth - Day One

So I have seen a few other blogs doing this in the last week or so and decided to jump on the bandwagon.  If you want to jump on the bandwagon to you can go see Angel Believes and she has the master list.

Alright lets get to it!
Day One - Something you hate about your self.

As hard as I thought this one would be when I looked at the list once I thought about it I realized there are several things I hate about myself, most of them are physical traits but one character trait that is really driving me nuts and I hate so much right now that I'll stick to that one.

I hate that I don't know what I want to be when I "grow up".  I'm having major issues deciding to stay at a dead end job that I really don't like but has decent pay and the flexibility for a family or figure something out and go back school and try to do something with more of a future but possibly not the flexibility? But if I went back to school what would I go for? Nothing really seems to interest me that is within my realm of reality.  There are things that if I didn't have a family and financial responsibilities I'd go for but just aren't possible to bring into fruition in my/our current situation.

I am at the point where I wish I could figure something out.

Days off are never actually days off

So today was supposed to be my day off to hang out at home with the munchkin and relax but it appears that will not be the case again.  I have a bunch of errands to run, then I have a friend coming over this afternoon to borrow some of my maternity clothes, then tonight I have to get everything ready for a full day trip to the air show tomorrow. Luckily my MS isn't acting up (knock on wood) so I'm not in much pain and work was pretty easy this week so energy wise I'm doing ok. After a full day out tomorrow at the air show I probably wont be able to say that but it will be a good day and mostly worth it.

CSN Stores / Delonghi Two Cup Espresso/Cappuccino Maker Review

So recently I was approached with the opportunity to do another product review through CSN Stores. So of course I jumped on the chance. With over 200 stores of everything from furniture to everything for baby and kids to health and fitness items and everything in between I figured it would be no problem finding an Item to review. Well one problem that I didn't expect when picking an item did come up - What to pick!  My wishlist was 2 or 3 pages long of incredible items at great price by the time I made myself stop "window" shopping. So I turned over the item selection process to my husband. He picked an delightful Espresso/Cappuccino maker!

So off I went to place the order.  CSN's website is super simply to navigate around and after a few short minutes my order for the Delonghi Two Cup Espresso/Cappuccino Maker was placed. I was very happy to see that even with basic shipping my cappuccino maker was going to be on my door step in just less than a week!

Just as promised my cappuccino maker arrived on my door step 6 days after placing my order in perfect condition! Unfortunately it took a few days once here for me to actually open it and play with it, my standard life just got in the way.

Once I did open it and started playing with it the results were great! Unlike some other cappuccino makers this one is very simple to use and the directions are very clear and easy to follow.  In no time flat I had made 2 delicious cappuccinos for me and the husband.

It brews super quick and the frothing arm actually swivels to make frothing your milk easier! It is compact in size so it can stay on the counter all the time which means it is more likely to get used regularly.

I'm really excited about this little guy because now I can make my caps just the way I like them and in a weeks time it will have paid for itself since me and my husband wont have to make our daily trip to the local coffee shop!

Overall great shopping experience and a great product!
