Extreme Couponing

Last week I was sick, so I stayed home for a couple of days from work. Since there is absolutely nothing on tv during the day, I thought why not watch a marathon of extreme couponing because let’s face it, crazy people are entertaining! After a couple of episodes, the crazy bug must’ve bitten me […]

The last few months

Derrick’s first meal after surgery, four days later! The last few months have gone by so fast, and I definitely planned on posting more, but as usual, things got in the way.  In August, Derrick had surgery to correct a digestive issue he’s been suffering with for about 6 years. He’s doing so much better, and […]

It’s been 3 months!

Wow, I’m a horrible blogger. Lots of things to  update since back in May. If you follow me on facebook, then you’ve probably already seen all of these updates and pictures, but I’m posting them here so I can get back in the swing of blogging. I’ll start with Derrick’s birthday! He turned the big […]

My Name is Memory

I saw this book rec on a friend’s blog a few weeks ago, so I downloaded it to my Nook.  I loved the book, but I wasn’t thrilled with the ending! This book is full of history, and it’s a love story.  The main character is Daniel, and he’s lived many lives, all of which […]

Workout Wednesdays!

Exercise/Fitness tip of the week: Eat a snack with protein and good carbs within one hour of working out.  It will help give you fuel for your workout and will cut down on the fatigue afterward. What I’m doing this week: I’m doing various low impact workouts from some of my exercise DVDs.  If you […]

Let the lucky streak continue!

April has just been our month this year! I’ve been applying for different jobs with the state for a few months because I’d like to get back into more of a media related job than what I do now.  I haven’t gotten any hits until last week! I went on an interview at a different […]
