I need a bigger plate!

Sunday, July 31, 2011
Work from home?
Earn a part time income from your couch?
Be your own boss?
Make $100,000 in 5 minutes?
You’ve seen these claims, perhaps you’ve tried a few as well.
As a mom that LOVES staying home, I too have fallen prey to just about everything under the sun that will give me something to do while potentially earning money for doing it.
Some work, some don’t!
In my 6 year career as a stay at home I have tried
2 Part-Time Jobs ( and learned that bosses don’t care about sick kids!)
Blogging for sponsors (and learned that while fun, I’ll never get rich blogging!)
Direct Sales (and learned that I buy way more than any customer)
however; feel free to check out my websites and shop away
Online Surveys (little pay, slightly overwhelming amount of daily e-mails)
Secret Shopping (Super fun, better pay than sitting on the couch)
and finally
Self-Employment (Actually the best paying!)
What do you do for some extra earnings, or a hobby?
If you would like any extra info on the companies that I use for surveys or secret shopping let me know and I’ll hook you up with real, legitimate, no money out of pocket opportunities. Because yes, I HAVE paid some money for some that turned out to be no good.
Have a great Sunday,

Dear Blog God – Part Deux

Wednesday, July 13, 2011
Forgot how much fun that was. Let’s resume shall we?
Now, where were we?
Oh yes!  We have moved on to Obadiah!
Obadiah 1:
Uhh, Short. God is still angry.  You didn’t miss anything.
Moving on…ooh Jonah (I remember something about a whale!)
Jonah 1:
God told Jonah to go thisaway, but he didn’t, he went thataway (never good!) He was running away from god, or sailing away from god, as he got on a boat. 
God found him and sent a storm. Jonah didn’t notice because he was asleep.
They needed to blame someone for the storm so the crew chose Jonah. Or at least the short straw did!
So they threw him overboard to end the storm.
He gets eaten by a big fish. He stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights
( How could he tell?, Did he pop out every so often? Ask the fish?)
Jonah 2:
Jonah prays.
Fish throws up Jonah.
Jonah 3:
God still wants Jonah to go thisaway. This time he goes.
Jonah gets to the town and doom and glooms everyone. So they starve themselves (and animals) and wear burlap (animals too) for god.
God is appeased.
Jonah 4:
Jonah is now pissed because god is too nice.  Wishes to be smited. Doesn’t get smited.
Oh now I don’t know about you but I thought there would be more to the whale thing. All I got was that Jonah was fish puke.

Where did the day go Wednesday?

Started at 6:15, when I was able to enjoy at least 3 cups of coffee with no real interruptions. It’s so nice on the days when the family sleeps in.
Oh wait, I had one interruption of the hubs phone ringing at 6:45, I ran into the bedroom to grab it but he was already yelling at the telemarketer for not having checked the time zone. Oops
Izabella woke up at 8:00ish and proceeded to tell me that she would, in fact, be having popsicles for breakfast. NO GO.  She had pizza instead!
Some other stuff happened here, but I can’t/won’t remember, so It doesn't matter.
Then we met my step dad
at the harbor
for fish and chips
and beer! ( No photo!)
Then he informed us, he brought presents!  Everyone loves presents!
Except presents from him!
Just what we needed!  PILLOWS! From his house that he no longer needs!
The best part???
My family walking around the harbor carrying aforementioned pillows!

Tell The Truth Tuesday – Liar Edition

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

For tell the truth Tuesday I decided to talk about the other side of honesty. Lying.

Do you know any liars? People that are constantly telling you the opposite of truth.  People that have lied to you for so long that when they tell you ANYTHING you don’t believe them.  Even when you want to? Even when you should?

I recently realized that people don’t forget, ever!  The same people that got lied to, keep not believing them, no matter what they say to their face.

Lying gets you nowhere. Lying complicates your life and destroys relationships.

The lies they keep hidden from one group, comes out in another, and soon everyone knows it’s all a lie.

Not a great way to live life.

Better to be honest and have people know where you stand and who you are than have them find out the hard way.
