A New Experience

A New Experience

I haven't commented much on my daily life because well it has been kind of boring filled with numbers and calculations. I know what you are thinking, how can that be boring? But trust me it isn't all glitz and glamor or even a little glitz and glamor. I started on a new experience which isn't really exciting but definitely new and interesting [...]

The Storms Have Passed For Now

The Storms Have Passed For Now

Well seems like the storms are at bay and I can finally get back to writing my daily post.  I am physically back but mentally I am not here.  I have written this same paragraph over about four times now.  There has been a great deal that has happened since I was last here, I just don't know where to start.  Maybe something cute. I got owned [...]

Quick Note

Quick Note

Ok just a quick note here for the ones who have emailed wondering where I am.  I mentioned last week that I would be away working on my lawsuit stuff and I have been.  I am sure it is going to be the death of me.  It wouldn't be so bad if I could do everything from home over the computer but I have to actually go to the law library to do my [...]

Time For The Hot Chocolate

Time For The Hot Chocolate

I woke up this morning in a house that was freezing cold. I had heard it was going to get cold this weekend but the numbers were low 60s. I could handle low 60s, that was nothing, I wouldn't even need the heater on. With all the Florida sunshine by mid-day it would be in the 70s and awesome. I am not going to call anyone a liar here (ummm Mr. [...]

They Made Me Yell At Them

They Made Me Yell At Them

Yesterday was the kind of day that made me feel like I have completely and totally failed at being a parent.  I know people will say kids are kids and not to stress it but I am stressing it.  Yesterday, I don't know who was in my house and in my kitchen but it wasn't my children.  It is like aliens took over their bodies, minds and souls. To [...]

Election Day 2010

Election Day 2010

Today is election day.  I am not all that big into politics.  I listen and pay attention but I get sick of all the attack ads and just tune the majority of them out.  It is extremely difficult to pick a candidate to vote for when all the candidates have something or have done something shady in their past.  Who am I to judge whether or not [...]

Why Can’t I Have Writer’s Block Instead

Why Can’t I Have Writer’s Block Instead

I have been sitting here trying to write my post for the day and there is just so much stuff I can't get it written.  I really have no excuse.  It is not like I have writer's block, that would be easy.  It is the opposite.  I have so much stuff that I need to get written that I can't get it organized in a fashion to get it written. Let's [...]

Where Did Friday Go?

Where Did Friday Go?

What happened to Friday?  One minute I was getting up, getting the kids off to school and getting ready to do some work; the next minute it was Saturday.  Friday came and went in a flash and I have nothing to show for it, well almost nothing. I got the kids off to school so that was a good thing but we were 20 minutes late so not a good [...]

I Can Dream It, You Have To Build It

I Can Dream It, You Have To Build It

Remember the story of the little engine that could?  It is a kid's story to teach kids to never give up and keep trying because they could do it.  It teaches kids about optimism, hard work and to never give up.  The little engine was a train engine asked to pull a long line of rail cars over the mountain.  All the other engines refused and it [...]

Report Card Day

Report Card Day

Today in my home is report card day.  One of those days of the school year kids either love or hate.  It is also one of the days that kids are the most creative in their excuses, at least for my kids.  The grades are in and there is no changing them, not like when I was a kid and a quick stroke of the pen turned that F into a B.  Today report [...]

Now On To The Real Stuff

Now On To The Real Stuff

I have been focusing on Halloween and then this spanking thing came about and then I had to respond to the spanking thing, so I have neglected the daily life post in general.  Not that much exciting has really happened in the past few days.  I have had a migraine or several really for three days now and that has been super swell fun.  The [...]

Where Did The Librarian Go?

Where Did The Librarian Go?

Yesterday I had to go to the library to return my books and check out some more.  I am an avid reader of both fiction and non-fiction so the library is perfect for me.  I was in search of a particular book, one I have had some interest in for awhile.  Last time I was there it was checked out but it was due back so I crossed my fingers and went [...]

Cleaning Out The Old Hard Drive

Cleaning Out The Old Hard Drive

The last two days I undertook a project to finally go through all the back up of back ups of back ups on my computer hard drive.  Every time I had to reinstall Windows I would just back up the current drive ensuring I saved everything I needed.  I went through a brief period of having to reinstall Windows several times as the computer was dying [...]

It Is All About The Add-Ons

It Is All About The Add-Ons

Last weekend, I made the mistake of walking into my local convenience store all dressed to the nines.  Hair and make-up done.  High heels and a dress even.  I looked pretty spectacular if I do say so myself.  It was a mistake though. I go into the this particular store quite often, it is my go to store for convenience stuff.  They see me [...]

Welcome To My Madness

Welcome To My Madness

Website Mayhem I am a pretty technically skilled person.  I am good at learning new things on my own.  I comprehend quite well.  However, this WordPress loop, PHP, HTML, CSS combination is driving me mad.  Not just a little crazy but freaking mad! I spent the day yesterday working on redesigning the home page for the website.  I have the [...]

The Library Bandit And Other Annoying Things

The Library Bandit And Other Annoying Things

Today has been a long day and annoying day.  There should be a law in place that only so many annoyances can occur in any given day.  Once you meet your quota for the day, no one else or nothing else is allowed to annoy you. School Meeting It started with my a meeting at the school about my 13 year old son that lasted well over an hour.  [...]

Wal-Mart And My New Tire

Wal-Mart And My New Tire

I went to get my tire at fixed at Wal-Mart's tire center.  I bought the tires there originally and added the road hazard protection plan.  It cost me $10 per tire when I bought the tire but it fixes or replaces the tire if there is a road hazard that hurts the tire.  Since my tire is repeatedly losing air I figure there must be something in the [...]

Good To Be Home or Maybe Not

Good To Be Home or Maybe Not

I went away and left 4 children ages 16 - 8 years old (yes they had some supervision I am not insane).  I didn't expect to come home to a perfect house but I was expecting something to be done.  My kids have had the luxury of not really having to clean the house on a regular basis because I do it.  They have chores to keep their basic stuff [...]

Food is My Friend

Food is My Friend

Something you will figure out on your own eventually I so might as well fess up now.  I love food.  I am not a foodie nor will I ever be a food critic, my love affair with food is different. I don't actually eat a great deal.  I go all day without eating and it is only when the headache sets in do I kick myself and go get something to eat.  [...]

The Clog That Wouldn’t Go Away

The Clog That Wouldn’t Go Away

I was going to update yesterday's post but then thought forget that I am tired and going to bed.  I wrote my daily post early yesterday thinking what could go wrong that I would need to comment further.  All in all it was ok but right after I posted I went to the kitchen to do dishes and found my sink backed up.  Then I started my laundry but [...]

Playing Taxi Driver

Playing Taxi Driver

Last night I got a phone call from a friend of mine in Tennessee.  We grew up together in Saudi Arabia some 20 years ago and just reunited back in July of this year.  A friend of hers, whom I met at the reunion, is flying up to see her in Tennessee this weekend for her birthday.  Unfortunately there is an 8 hour lay over in Orlando.  She [...]

Running Errands on Empty

Running Errands on Empty

  School back in session today.  I was afraid after the long weekend the kids would be less than enthusiastic about getting up and getting ready but it went smoothly.  This was a bonus for me as I had errands to run today and with my sleep schedule still messed up was not in the mood for an arguement. I got the kids off to school and then [...]

Labor Day 2010

Labor Day 2010

I am so annoyed.  I have this weird kind of writer's block or typer's block is more like it.  I will be sitting watching a movie or reading an article or playing a game and a post forms in my head or the idea for one forms.  I stop what I am doing and open up my editor to type and draw a complete and utter blank.  I am amazed I made it this [...]
