Mother’s Day

10 May

Happy belated Mother’s day to all the hard working moms out there! I hope everyone was treated well on our special day.
My daughter made me breakfast, made a banner for me and with the help of my husband hung it up. She even pampered me by giving me a foot soak, painting my toes and doing my hair. It was a great way to feel special. My husband got up before me and made coffee and fed part of our hungry fur babies. It was nice to not have to do so much or at least not the normal things I usually do. I even slept in and that was really nice.
We went out to eat the day before because we were not sure how crowded it would be so I even got my Indian food fix at least for now. Plus as a bonus I even got to have leftovers on Mother’s Day.

Baby Im A Star

23 Apr

Once again the music industry has lost another music icon. It really stinks.
Prince’s music was what I grew up with and listening to his music was really great. His song “Baby I’m a Star” was what helped me to get through my darker times as a teenager and even now as I go through a rough patch in my relationship. It helps me to remember that I am a star. It helps me to dance and puts a smile on my face. I was jamming to a few of his more well known songs on youtube like “Little Red Corvette”, “Purple Rain”, “Raspberry Beret”, “1999” and others. Plus I was able to catch the video of him kicking Kim Kardashian off the stage I was cheering him. Sorry not a Kardashian fan.
He may have been an a**hole but, what guy isnt? Plus I can say the same for women too what woman isn’t a b***h? We all have our days of being complete jerks. Call it what you want to hormomes, or just having a bad day.
He died too young and too soon but, he died doing what he loved best and not many people can say that. He will be missed.

Birthday

14 Apr

April has been the month of Birthdays. Several young girls that my daughter knows had birthdays this month. One even had hers on the same day as my daughter so they had a joint birthday party. It was super cool for us because all her friends were there. She got some really nice gifts. I gave her a Darth Vader purse that she wanted and something she needed. The experience gift will have to wait for a bit and that is fine. It is more on her schedule of when she wants to do it.
She is wanting to discontinue her Tae Kwan Do and I am not happy but, I will not keep her or make her stay in something she is no longer interested in. Even if it means she will not get her next belt.
I finally got caught up in balancing my checkbook. Yes, I am still old school and prefer to have a paper trail when I pay bills.
Spring has returned I was recently checked out by a honey bee. She was super curious about me for some reason. I recently conditioned my hair but, still do not feel that I smell like a flower. I am not allergic to bee stings but, she was getting a bit too close to my ears and I really had no desire to have a bee get stuck in my hair while trying to get close to my ear. So I basically resorted to a bit of girlie action by waving my hands around. It seems to have worked because she wandered off. I know she was just trying to decide if I was a flower or not I was wearing a purple shirt but, still it is a bit weird. I just hope the warmer weather lasts this time. We have been in a weird flux being either hot, cold, or cold and windy or cold with rain/snow and frost.

Hope spring has sprung where you are and that you are having some warmth.

Proud of myself

15 Mar

I was very proud of myself this weekend my daughter went to the dark side. We had a comic con and she got her picture taken with Darth Vader. It was a lot of fun. I managed to spend only $8 for a Totoro necklace. Love the movie and got one with the big guy and the tiny white one. If you have not seen the movie I highly recommend it. I also have been depressed lately…long story short the hubby and I got into it. I subsequently had to get rid of all my Lush stuff. I personally love Lush products. It sucked getting rid of it because my husband is allergic to it. I would rather do it than get rid of Noel my beloved bunny.
I have a few triggers when I am down and/or depressed I either eat more than I should or I dont eat. I also will shop but, I did stop myself from buying something I dont need. I thought about it and remembered that I really want to go to France so I figure this purchase will take away from my daughter and I going to France so I did not purchase that new whatever it was I was looking at. I was very proud of myself for not spending a lot of money and for recognizing my triggers to shopping plus the only things I bought was the above mentioned necklace and a new book that I have been waiting for awhile. The book only cost me about $22.00 much better than the $130 or so whatever I was looking at.

Frustrated as a vegan?

Spring cleaning even if the weather outside is frightful

4 Mar

Today I spent a bit of time getting rid of a lot of my daughters clothes that she has out grown. Whew what a chore. It is amazing to me how much winter and summer clothes mainly the winter clothes that I have gotten rid of and I only have one child. Now she has a lot less in her closet to choose from (as it should be) and she still has plenty of clothes to wear. I wish I had gotten a before shot but, basically the clothes at the right side of the screen you could not even see. Yup folks she had that many clothes. I have however asked her grandmother my mom to get her a few items of clothes 2 pairs of black leggings, a pair of jeans, and 2 sweaters in her size for her upcoming birthday. She will need them for next winter and hopefully my mom can find all these items on sale or something. 20160303_144332

I love spring it was raining and snowing at the same freaking time. Of course by early next week we will be in the low 70s. Ahhhh I just want it to be either warm aka 60s or so or just stay cold and miserable.

Cold and product review

2 Mar

This past weekend our washing machine decided to go out so we unfortunately had to go out and get another one. Really wish things were designed to last 20 years or longer. Yeah I know then you wouldnt have the great joy of having to go out and get something shiny and new sorry had to wax a little Madonna 80’s style. We did pay for this in cash so bonus for us no financing or credit need apply. Even though it hurts to be out this amount of cash I would so much rather do things this way than any other.
Now for the cold, our lovely heater in the house we are renting decided that 55 was warm enough, sorry it is not and is only supposed to go down to 64 before the heat turns on. That was this morning. It was warmer outside than in our house. Well now it is taking 2 or more hours just to get to our usual balmy 65 in our house. No wonder our electric bill has been so outrageous.
Daiya has come out with a lovely new to me product. A frozen “cheesecake” in New York style, Strawberry, Chocolate, and Key Lime. I have only so far tried the New York. It is in the frozen section. It is good, but a bit small. I personally like to make my own “cheesecake” using silken tofu and other ingredients. I can also make mine a lot bigger and can control how much sugar I want. This is a bit too small basically the packaging is bigger than the “cheesecake” and it is way too sweet in my opinion. This is good for someone who either needs something in a hurry and doesnt have the time to make their own. It is good enough and not to brag but, I personally think I can make a better “cheesecake”.
