Moving Right Along...

There aren't too many people that I run across that know more about "moving" than I do! To date I have moved (from childhood to now) over 50 times!! And as you can imagine having that kind of track record, one would require some experience with packing boxes. Just because I know how to pack a good box doesn't mean I enjoy it! haha! There are so many facets to moving.. Trying to find a good moving company, or moving truck, or even a storage facility. Sometimes, even your house that you have lived your whole life.. well things just seem to overflow, and yet you hate to get rid of the kids childhood toys, and special memories.

I think self storage is such a great idea! To find a reputable place that is clean, dependable, and safe! Whether you need Self Storage Units Phoenix AZ or self storage units in Davie, FL there is a company that stands by their company. Offering up friendly, professional managers on staff, and convenient locations.

The storage unit have climate control, which I personally think is huge! For instance if you have a piano, or something that needs to be kept away from cold or heat.. A climate controlled storage space is the only way you prevent damage.

My parents happen to live in AZ, and I could imagine that if they needed a Self Storage Units Phoenix AZ that they would definitely appreciate all the amenities this company has to offer. They would specially appreciate the fact that self storage company offers all the packing supplies you would need in a move. That makes it convenient, fast, and definitely a one stop shop!

"I'm In Heaven..."

Is it football season? You know how I always know which sport is coming up? (Because I personally do not follow sports too well) Is when my husband goes to his XBOX game archive and pulls out the current sport! So a couple of weeks ago, you can imagine what game came out of the vault! Football!!! He sleeps and breaths Football (as well as basketball and baseball!)! Along with his obsession he plays Fantasy Football! He loves it! The funny thing is you would think he was actually a coach or something, since he takes the picking of players so seriously!

I cannot wait to tell him about Waiver Wire! This website is completely dedicated to Fantasy Football. In other words, Heaven on Earth for my husband! Some of the things you will find at Waiver Wire are: Fantasy Football Drat Software, football news, analysis, a forum to chat it up, player comparisons, and total access to over 100 local NFL team news feeds!

Aloha Friday

An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday.
I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a
comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!

My Question:

If you were to write a book about your life.. are there things you would leave out? Or would you tell all?

My Answer:

Hmmm.. I think if I was going to the trouble of writing a book.. I would think I would tell most.. in order to be true to my life.. but probably not everything :)

Xbox, Milk, and the Future of this Country - It's Time We Take a Stand..And Claim BACK AMERICA!

I am not sure if anyone cares but .... lol I was watching the news earlier and I heard that Microsoft is lowering the price of their XBOX starting tomorrow by $100! I hope that is the 360 as well because my husband wants to upgrade!!! lol :)

Also, heard that Milk is going down to .99 a gallon...hmmm... no sure why that is!

* * * * * *

Also, on a more serious note. I know there are a lot of you out there that watch Fox News..and then there are a lot of you out there that don't watch Fox News just because of what you "hear" about it! I happen to only watch Fox News..after seeing for myself that all the other news channels weren't reporting the entire stories..and were quite biased. Anyway, I would really really like to encourage you.. perhaps more challenge you for people who are frowning at me right now..for merely mentioning Fox News lol, to watch Glen Beck today and the rest of the week. He is on at 5pm Eastern standard time.. 2 pm Pacific. This week..

Why is this week important to watch? Glen has been doing a great deal of research and is uncovering a whole lot of interesting things about our country our government today. Along with facts, documents, and actual video clips. So it's not just his "conspiratorial" (is that word?) thinking.. all his research is backed by facts. Whether or not you love or hate the guy.. I challenge you to watch him this week.. and listen to what he has to say. Do you realize he has been receiving death threats for sometime now..and has bodyguards with him at all times. Why would a guy.. risk his life to tell us the truth? Because it's important.. and if we don't listen.. I am afraid of what direction our country will be headed.

I think part of the problem with "us" is that we don't want to believe.. We don't want to believe that there are actually plans in the works..for America to completely change and turn away from the very foundation we are trying so hard to adhere.

Did you realize there are now 32 Czars with the present Administration? And that many of the 32 have the most crazy thinking I have ever heard.. I talked about a couple of the Czars..remember the one before that believed Animals should have the right to take Humans to court and sue? And then the other Czar that said Trees should have the right to sue! Oh..and one I heard yesterday.. A CZAR that agrees with Chavez in Venezuela.. and that he did an incredible job in bringing revolution to his country. This CZAR is the one that would control the media.

If you don't lift up the rug and sweep.. you will never know how much dirt accumulates.. Don't you think it's time we sweep under the rug.. and throw a little bleach down too?

I for one am not willing for my children or my family lose our country. I am not willing to be told what I have to do. Free speech.. may not be around much longer.. (another interesting interview from a different CZAR. He claimed that Free speech is only a distraction.. to make us feel like we have a voice) WOW.

I don't care if you are democrat, republican, or from crazyville.. WAKE UP! This isn't about Party.. this is about your future..and my future! There may come a day..that we have no voice at all.

An Elegant Gift for My Husband

My 6th wedding anniversary is coming up next month. I can't believe it.. actually! I have known my husband for 7 years.. and could of never imagined being as happy as I am all these years later with two wonderful, beautiful children! I will admit, when it comes to gifting my husband for a special event, well, I am not too good at picking the right thing.

I suppose if I get him an Xbox game he would be thrilled! But I would rather give him a more grown up elegant gift. A watch would be perfect. With his job he needs to look his best at all times, and sporting a beautiful watch helps him keep time, and make him look smart! I love my husband and think he is definitely worth a gorgeous, yet manly watch! One of my favorites is the Citizen AV0031 Men's Calibre 2100! Perhaps, I might suggest to him to get me a matching Citizen eco drive ladies watch!!

Now that would be a Happy Anniversary to both of us!

We All Need a Little Advice!

It seems that when we reach adulthood, get married, and become parents.. we realize how many things we really didn't know. All the life lessons we ignored as teenagers and young adults now seem a whole lot more important. For instance, when someone says your life will change once you have children.. we normally offer a kind smile and say "oh I know I know", but in all reality we don't know anything! Another lesson we seem to scoff at is finances!!

I can totally attest to wishing I had learned this lesson early on. I remember getting my first credit card at the age of 19! At first I convinced myself.. of buying just a few things and then paying it off at the end of the month to help my credit. RIGHT!!!! I wish I would of understood the woes of accumulating personal debt. Most of the credit counseling they offer now.. they didn't offer ten years ago! Ahh.. The hard lessons learned.

Now as a wife and mother of two, I am much more conscious of the importance of good credit, and saving money. I plan to teach my children as soon as they are able to comprehend, how important it is to not have debt through out their life's.

My Question:

Could you live without "Sugar" or "very little sugar"?
I just read this article here! Talking about the "coming DOOM" of sugar shortage lol Due to weather affecting crops in parts of the world.

My Answer:

Well, I think I could survive without sugar after a week of migraines..and my body gets used to not having sugar around! lol Apparently, "they say" that even our candy bars could go up in prices... Honestly, I think when a woman wants chocolate she will pay an arm and a leg just to get a piece lol

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
