Life, Kids and Knitting!

Life can really through you a curve ball sometimes! There I was knitting on a pair of Opera gloves (the same pair for a month now!) and my doughtier really did the funniest thing ever. She turned to me and in a very adult manner "Mommy did you know people are weird!" and then she ran off before I could say anything (i was a little taken by the statement and I really didnt have anything to say). Then I found myself laughing over it, she came running and being chased by her brother , stopped looked at me "Mommy it wasnt that funny" and ran off again. I just chuckled some more because she is only 4!

on my knitting note I should have pics of the gloves within a few weeks, they are taking far longer hen expected and I so need to take a few days off from knitting them. size 3 knitting needles are tiny! the yearn is tiny too lol, ugh such work for a pair of arm length gloves!

Oh well who ever gets them will be happy with them!

Bills IQ

If you are like me and need Debt help then this Post might be very helpful to you. I just recently took the Bills IQ test. At first glance this test didn't seam like it would be helpful but as I answered their simple questions, it made me think of things that I never thought about. For instance have you thought about Life Insurance? Or about a collage fund for your kids? We have thought about some of this here in our home, but never have acted on it. For one thing our bills out weigh our income. Between collage loans, credit bills that went into default and a cell phone bill that went to a collection agency, its hard to mange money you really dont have.

I scored a 75 on it a C so to speak. But after thinking about it their little test was to vague for me. It left too many grey areas for instance it didnt ask about income bracket which is a big key factor or asked about necessity buying such as groceries, and needed home stuff. After the test was over it showed 3 Debt consolidation companies. I don't use them for one thing they ask for a percentage of payment. I tried to use the free non profit one a few years back but it just didnt work out. Then you get at least one person who is mean to you. They just don't take in the fact that uncontrollable situations happen. Like the loss of a child, or medical bills of a termanil ill family member. Now I am not saying this is m and my family but there are families that are living with this.

I would love to have a Debt free life. and I hope one day it will get to that point. Everyone deserves debt relief in their life. I do suggest that everyone take the quiz, because it does ask some really big questions. It's always worth a shot to find out about Debt help and ways to start digging yourself out of it. Help is always great even if it is to point out the obvious that we sometimes forget about ;)

Zenni Optical was on FOX news!

Recently Zenni Optical was featured on Fox news in the Deal or Dud section. I went to cheek out the report for myself. The report didn't load up correctly for me but I did get most of what they were talking about. They tried out with two different types of glasses strength. The mom of the try out was a little disappointed in the frames for her son. She claimed the color was off from what was online and the ear pieces hooked too much around the ear. Her daughters were fine. She also had the sons cheeked with an obstratition for prescription strength and they said it was perfect. The only 2 problems was the puplary distance and the lenses were too thick making them heavy which wasn't necessary. You can cheek out their report Zenni on Fox and make your own decision.

My personal experience with was pretty good. As I mentioned a while back we had ordered a pair of bifocals for my husband. We had problems reading the prescription because of the Doctors penmanship. It was bad and sloppy writing. We had gone to Wal-Mart and had the eye place give us a puplarity measurement. They were more then happy to measure it for us. We went to the site and placed our order Bifocals take longer to get here. It took close to a month before they got here. Once They did get here they were perfect. Shape size prescription and pupal measurement. We hadn't had a problem and I am so grateful we used them. Bifocals start at $400.00 a pair and ours only cost $85.00 plus shipping and handling. I believe they are worth the wait because in the long run they save us a lot of time and money and thats something we all need to save on! Don't take my word for it try and make your own decision about them.

Earlier this year I had mentioned that we had ordered from for the hubbys bifocals. they have been working out really great for him. Not only did we save a fortune on Bifocals but we also found some intreasting and unique styles for eyeglasses. Shipping on bifocals takes longer then regular glasses but in the long run it was worth it.

I went over to the site earlier and discovered that has some new styles. I am waiting until I can get my eyes reexamined so I can buy me some new glasses from

These are more my style: Sells Stylish Prescription Glasses Online. You will find huge selection of frames, with single vision lens, sunsensor (potochromic)lens, tinted sunglasses lens, bifocal lens and progressive lens. The Secret to Zenni’s Low Prices
is that they sell only their own manufactured frames direct to the customer, with no middlemen and virtually no advertising budget.

Kids, shots and bobos

Today I had to take my daughter to get a set of shots. This time was way different then any other time. They had to draw out blood today and her tiny vein did what my moms does. It rolled so the stupid nurse kept fishing in the arm making it bruised and making her scream louder. I told the nurse to stop take the needle out and re tie her arm. She told me to be quite. That was the wrong thing to say to a mom and someone who does have experience with needles.
Once that was over they freaked my daughter again, she hates having others pull her pants down to give her a shot. They gave her 4 injections for 3 things and her little bum is bruised as well as her arm. Once we got home i gave her an ice cream bar and a bottled water. She has calmed down some but she nicely told the nurses they are to never touch her again.

The Secreats of The Minstral Cycle

Its great to know that a company has womans health on the brains. Looking around this companies website I had gained some great knowledge. Especially the womans cycle, stem cell research. I am a firm believer that the human body has the secrets to finding cures to devastating desieses such as altimerz. And now to find a company that has made such great discoveries on how to harvest cells without harming anyone.

Who knew that the minstrel cycle had life saving capabilities? I didn't that was for sure, did you? This company C'elle has found a way to collect this and use it for research and other great things. The following is a copy of their press release. Also take a look at Celle Client Testimonial. You will be more informed about how we all can make a diffrance.

Taking Control: Future Therapies for a Host of Serious Diseases May Be Found in Women's Menstrual Blood

July 07, 2008: 01:28 PM EST

OLDSMAR, Fla., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- With today’s hectic lifestyle, where most women are juggling careers, family, relationships, and a host of activities, the idea of possibly facing a serious illness in the future is not something that readily comes to mind -- especially when a woman is in the prime of her life. But what most women don’t know, is that the key to treating a number of possibly life-threatening diseases that she, a parent, a sibling or even her children may face in later years, such as osteoporosis, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, may be found within her own body -- in vital stem cells, which can now be harvested from her own menstrual blood.

Now, thanks to the revolutionary research and technology of C’elle, a service dedicated to providing women with a safe and easy method of collecting and preserving stem cells found in her menstrual fluid each month, even the busiest woman can take control of her future, right in the privacy of her own home. With C’elle’s non-invasive collection process, menstrual cells are processed and cryo-preserved (stored at a very low temperature) for potential cellular therapies that may be used in the future. These self-renewing cells one day may even be used for sports medicine or cosmeceutical treatments, such as anti-aging therapies.

"C’elle enables and empowers a woman to take control of her future health, and possibly of those genetically closest to her, in a fast, painless and stress free way," said Michelle Kay, Marketing and Sales Manager for C’elle. "We live in exciting times, as science and technology are discovering how extremely valuable menstrual blood stem cells really are, and the enormous treatment potential they represent for future therapies. C’elle’s ongoing research is supporting these promising findings."

Coffee, kids, and wild imagination

The more sleep I lose the more caffeine I need to be able to keep up with the kids. I cut it off about noon. But I am having hard times sleeping at night. Most of it is due to hubbys new job. He works 3rd shift at our local hospital and it drives me nuts. I am havening a hard time relaxing at nite to be able to fall asleep. I keep imagining weird things. For example last night I kept hearing someone walking around in the house. I looked and no one was their. I haven't ruled out the possibility of an after life being. I believe in such things, but why wait 2 years before making itself known to me? Maybe its because of my lack of being comfortable state that I am now noticing it. Before I could dismiss it because I always assumed it was hubby walking around. He had always came in about an hour or two after I went to bed. Now He doesn't get home until 6:30 am and I only sleep about 4 hours a night now. Most of it is tossing and turning in bed. I just don't want to get up. So first thing in the morning I make coffee, kids breakfasts and then start my first cup. By noon I have dranked the whole pot of coffee and I am good to go. I had figured by 11 pm i would be exhausted enough to sleep. I lay there for about another 2 hours then drift off and only to be awaken every hour for about 30 minutes. Today I have decided 2 cups and let myself drag about. I might go do some knitting today to help me relax even more. But I seriously doubt it will be a good night for me.
