I hope this year is different

I have been wanting a big flat screen tv for the longest time but I am scared to get one because of the twins. These boys are like think1 and thing 2 form the book the cat in the hat. They are constantly breaking things and touching things and moving everything that is not pinned down. I keep telling my hubby that if we get a TV wall mount we wont have to worry about the tv falling down and I can finalky get something I have been wanting for a long time.

Every Christmas I get disappointed because I expect to get at least one item that I hint I want and I never do. I am hoping this year will be different but I will have to wait and see.





I cannot believe I passed out

I must have the worst immune system ever. I keep getting sick. The other day while driving to the store with my sister in law I started to feel clammy. I felt my hands tingling and I felt like I was going to throw up. I was close to Target so I pulled in and right away I threw up and everything went blank. My sister in law says that I passed out. She didnt know what to do so she called my husband who was about a minute away. He rushed me to the hospital.

I was told I had the flu. I have never passed out from the flu before. I was told to keep hydrated and to rest. I want to know how the doctor expects me to rest when I have 6 kids!! I have tried to take it easy but I am already getting frustrated with the mess the kids are making. I am going to start taking multi vitamins and see if that helps my immune system start working a little better and helps me stay healthy.





I need good quality

This week that the kids have been off of school, I have had time to relax a little and I even got to go out and have a little bit of fun. I got to go to a party and hang out and listen to a band play great music. The one thing I kept looking at was the Monster Power cord that the musicians had theit instruments plugged into. I noticed that their music came out clean and clear.

I always told my hubby that you can tell how well a band is when you see thrit musical instruments. We are planning to hire a band for my childs sweet sixteen and I want to make sure that the band we hire is a very good band.I will be checking out all the musical instruments and even the quality of the power plugs before I choose what band will play for my daughters birthday.





I am so excited for thanksgiving

We are getting ready for Thanksgiving. I have been doing some last minute food shopping since I got a late start on getting the grocery shopping for thanksgiving dinner ready. We have family coming down to have Thanksgiving with us this year. We normally travel to other family members house but for the past two or three years we have been doing thanksgiving solo. I like having thanksgiving at my house because I can take a nap in my own bed if I choose to.

I also like having leftovers because everyone knows that the best tastign food is leftover turkey and stuffing and green bean casserole. I am so excited to be eating all the good food I can eat tomorrow. Are you excited for thanksgiving dinner too ?





If only I lived somewhere else, I could help her better

My daughter has been singing since she could talk. I always thought she had a beautiful singing voice but wht mother wouldn’t say that about their child. I really started to think about finding her a signing coach after she entered her school’s talent show and had parents tell me that she has a lot of talent and should keep her going with her singing. I found a great “Toronto singing coach” but I need someone a little closer to home. I live in a small town and I know there isn’t anyone who could help her here.

I have always wanted to live in Canada because it seems so beautiful over there. I have a lot of friends there and a lot of musicians or singers I like came from there. I tell my hubby if we lived in Toronto I wouldn’t have any problems looking for “singing coaches in Toronto” In this little town there is no way I can find what I need. I am going to have to travel to Los Angeles to try and find a good singing coach for my daughter. My hubby tells me that I need to take things one step at a time and moving is just not in the cards for us right now. That’s fine if I can’t move right now but I am still going to try and find the singing coach my daughter needs if she wants to keep on singing.





Christmas time is getting closer

We are in the month of November and you know what that means.. Christmas time shopping. I pretty much know what to get the kids getting other family members gifts can be a little tough. My husbands uncle loves fixing things and he has turned the garage into his tool warehouse so I thought I could get him socket holders because that is about the only thing he doesn’t already own.

I am still debating on what to get my in-laws, especially since they can be very picky at times and they aren’t my favorite people right now. I have to get them something though or else the hubs will complain. I got the hubby’s grandma covered she is very easy to shop for. I still haven’t gotten the hubs anything but given all the past christmas years that he hasn’t gotten me a gift I am gonna see if he buys me one this year and then I will get him a gift. If he doesn’t get me anything this year then I wont get him one either and we can be even!!





Product Review: Dermagist Clarifying System

As a teenager I hardly broke out. I would get one or two pimples and that was it. Now that I am 32 I have had more acne breakouts than I have ever had in my life. My teenage daughter would tease me and say ” Mom shouldn’t I be the one needing acne creams instead of you?” I didn’t know wether to laugh or cry everytime I saw my face. This whole acne thing wasn’t just one or two breakouts either it had been going on for months and months. I kept trying all kinds of different acne creams that my target and walmart carried to see if any would solve my problem. I was just about ready to give up on this acne battle when Dermagist asked me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. By the way Dermagist has all kinds of skin care products to suit your needs, such as Anti- aging and Wrinkle products, Acne-prone skin products and Daily maintenance products.

Can you guess what I chose to review? If you haven’t guessed already I chose to review Dermagist’s Ultimate Clarifying System. I could not wait to try out the Acne Clarifying Cream,the Detoxifying Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin and last but not least Acne Scar Fading Cream. What I immediately liked about the Ultimate clarifying system was that it targets Acne Breakouts naturally while trying to reduce redness and irritation with Resveratrol, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, Aloe and Chamomile. You would be surprised how much Aloe and Chamomile can make a difference. Many of the acne products I tried before would dry my face and I would end up with some of my skin peeling if that makes any sense to you guys.

I started with the Detoxifying cleanser with Resveratrol which is an oil free cleanser that exfoliates dead skin cells and removes excess oil and impurities. Right away I noticed that my face felt fresh and clean. I didn’t feel the oily skin that I have been feeling lately. I then started using the Clarifying cream. The clarifying cream I put on in the morning after making sure my face was clean and in the evening. I also used the acne scar fading cream twice, once in the morning and once in the evening.

I started noticing after a few days that the acne I had on my face was not as red and some of the pimples didn’t hurt as much. In a week I noticed that the pimples werent as big as they were before. I also noticed that I was not waking up everyday with new pimples like it had been happening before I started using the Ultimate Clarifying system. Three weeks after using the ultimate clarifying system I noticed my face had about 2 pimples instead of a whole face full of pimples.

I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to try out Dermagist’s ultimate clarifying system. I can now go out with my friends without being embarrassed about how my face looks. I am also starting to let friends and family take pictures of me, I had stopped taking pictures when my face started breaking out. It’s amazing how much more confidence I feel now that my face isn’t covered with acne. Check out my pictures to see the difference Dermagist made on my face.
