Day 21: If you could have 1 superpower, what would it be and what would be the first thing you did with it?

not really sure..... give me awhile to think about it.

Day 20: Describe 3 significant memories from your childhood

  1. Every weekend in the summer we would go to my grandparents cottage on the lake. From the time I was old enough to remember till I was 16. it brings me peace thinking aobut those summers.
  2. My great grandma's house
  3. First time on a roller coaster at Kings Island in 8th grade my best friends made me ride it and I loved it!

Day 19: If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?

Hard one.... we live in Indiana and well to be honest we hate it. We were both born and raised in Indiana but we want to move somewhere different. The summers are crappy the winters are crappy... we dont' know where we would move to but we know we dont' want to live here all the rest of our lives.

Day 18: What is the most difficult thing you have had to forgive?

God taking my 3 babies away from me. I knew they were unhealthy since I miscarried them if they were healthy I would have carried them full term. it was hard to realize it especially my last miscarriage where I lost the baby at 6 weeks but we didnt find out till 14 weeks because I didn't realize anything was wrong and I should have known I should have felt something was wrong. I have made my peace that my babies that are no longer with us on earth are in Heaven watching thier big sister and little sister grow up. They know they mean everything to me and understand that one day we will all be together again.

Day 17: What is the thing you most wish you were great at?

I wish I could be a better mom the mom that did everything right, the mom that didn't yell, the mom who didn't mind getting up in the middle of the night.

I love being a mommy. I always wanted to be one but I am not the best I know I don't have to perfect and that my kids will love me no matter what but I am working on being the better mom.

Day 10

Embarrassing moment

I have I got a million of those!!!!!!!!!! My most recent. I was reading the name of a good friends newborn and thought it said a whole different (odd) name than what it actually was and I replied to it and asked how they came up with such an odd name then I re read it and saw the name was actually something that looked like what I thought but normal.

Day 9


My grandpa he was an artist. He and I were close, I spent a lot of time with both sets of my grandparents while growing up. He was my cheerleader when it came to writing. I love to write. I can't draw or paint worth crap I didnt' get that gene from him but I got the creativity gene from him (thank you grandpa!!) I wrote all the time growing up. I even almost had a book published but they wanted it longer I didn't want it longer I liked it how it was. Then I lost it I lost my love of writing for awhile. I got back into writing in a journal again after high school but not stories. I also blogged.  He always told me it doesn't matter what I wrote just write. he died in 2006 when I was 6 months pregnant with my first child. I had a breakdown at his funeral. I hope he is proud of me.

Kyle David Miller -
Never met the family ever in my life. 2005 I was in a bad accident I won't go into it but it was bad. God was with us that day. I got pregnant a year later and I came across this link and watched the video. It changed my life!!!!!!!! It got me into my passion for carseat safety.

challenge 8


  • My family I am paranoid about them being safe happy etc. I just wouldn't be me if it wasn't for my hubby and kids. They are my rocks, my world , my everything. I might get upset with them, lose my temper at them, etc. They still are the most important people in my life.
  • Carseat safety - If I could I would go to be a carseat tech. I LOVE the research I love letting parents know the correct safe way to put their kids. My family thinks I am crazy but I can't help it. My 5 year old is even getting to be like me and will tell me if she sees something unsafe.
  • Music - My life wouldn't be the way it is if I didn't have music. I like every kind of music (except rap it's not music). My mood is what picks what music I want to listen to. It sometimes swallows me up and I can't get away from music...I need it to survive.
  • Movies- I LOVE movies!!!!! Again I am all over when it comes to what kinds I love all movies out there.
  • Books yet again I love books it's like movies in your head!! LOL you can live in a life that is not yours while reading.

Changes are coming to our family

As much as I want to just give up on everything because of everything going on. I can't I love my girls, I love God, I am blessed with what we already have.

Hubby's job is laying off in September he will be working at the factory 1 year when they lay off, he is one of them being laid off. Yes he gets unemployment but we have already been through that 3 years ago. I am looking for a full time job since I can not work more than 24 hours at my current job since it's a assisted living place and they just don't offer many hours. They are SUPER strict about overtime as well. He does have a job interview Monday but it's a $4 pay cut and 3rd shift so I wouldn't be able to work much if he got that since we can't afford daycare,and someone needs to drive our oldest back and forth to school. We are looking for a rental that is cheaper as well since we can't afford where we are now. It's just a new phase of our life we are going through , dont' like it but it will turn out for the best. It always does.

Going on 3rd week of Kindergarten!!

The first day of Kindergarten I wasn't a wreck like I thought I would be. The main worry for me was making sure she was able to find her classroom and not get lost in such a big new school. She(and mommy) made through the day just fine. She LOVES school, has a best friend (one that I get along with her mom!!), and likes her teacher. The second day of school she won an award for being responsible YAY she's never like that at home. I was afraid they got the wrong kid!!! LOL She has already learned so much. She comes home singing new songs they learned about days of the week, months etc.

Being home all day with just 1 kid is odd. I can get so much more stuff done (that is if I get my lazy butt up and do something!! ) She misses her sissy but I think she likes the alone time also.

Daddy doesn't get to see his big girl through the week since he works nights. It's been working out ok for now.

Day 6 Dream Job

   I always wanted to be a SAHM. I was lucky enough to be one for 3 years and then had to get a full time job but then only worked that for 6 months then went to my current part time job I only work 3 hours a day maybe 4 days a week and I am home by 10:30 in the morning and home the rest of the day! If my hubby gets laid off like rumor is going around it is then I will work full time again. Only because I know my hubby will be home with our kids. I was blessed to be home for as much as I am. I would be working full time FOR the benefit of my family.

If I would have gone to school I would have loved to have done something with animals or books or write or even music.

5 days till Kindergarten and I don't know if I can wait that long.

I wish I could fast forward to Tuesday when Shaylee leaves for school. I hate to admit it but I want her gone all day. I am losing my sanity and Cassie keeps getting bullied by her big sister. 8 hours away from each other will be good , better be good or I don't know what I am going to do for the next 12 years. I seriously want to leave every time I wake up lately. The last month it's nothing but screaming,fighting and whining 24/7 out not one but both of them. I am truly losing my patients with it all. I love them with everything I am but I can't take how they have been acting lately. I miss where they would play either separate well of together well. They can't even be in the same room anymore. They spend to much time together. Since summer Shaylee is always home maybe 2 times in 3 months she was away from Cassie for about an hour. That's not enough time away from each other. Shaylee will be in school 8 hours and Cassie will have 8 hours alone. Yes I hope they do miss each other while the time apart. I also hope that the time they have from when Shaylee gets home till bedtime is also good. I love being a mommy , I have always wanted to be a mommy but not like this. I want my kids to get along more and not fight 24/7 to where I get to the point where I yell and scream I hate doing that. I also think it's the ages of them right now. Shaylee is almost 6 and Cassie is almost 3. Hopefully when they get past the issues they are having individually they will be better......

Day 3: Describe your relationship with your parents. is the link to go to that I got this idea from.

Relationship with my parents. humm..... Growing up I wasn't that close to my mom, not sure if I was more of a daddy's girl growing up. When I moved out of the house at 19 my mom and I got closer. I always loved hanging out with her. When I had my first born I thought it would be even better but it got worse. My parents really don't come around much. I do see them weekly sometimes a little more but really I don't see them much as I would like and want it to be. They do their own thing they are always going all over the place. They never invite us anywhere because of the kids. You would think they would want to spend as much time as they could with their grand kids. Maybe it's because we don't have the money to run around all time like they do even though they themselves are in debt they still live outside their means. Don't get me wrong they love us and they are ALWAYS around when we need them but they just dont' spend time with us like I would like. That's one thing my girls are going to have. When they get older I WANT to do as much stuff with them and their families as we can. Vacations, weekend trips I want to be a close family. I had a great childhood but now that I am older we just don't do much together.

Day 2 30 day blog challenge

Day 2: Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and describe how they became fears.

  1. Covered bridges. Not sure how this came about. I hated them since little I can NOT go over them without freaking out. Maybe Beetlejuice the movie not sure what sparked it. A town my grandma grew up in has about 3 you have to go thru and I hate it. Hubby took me over one while dating he knew I was afraid and wanted to scare me.
  2. SPIDERS  hate them no matter how small or large they are I want them DEAD! Growing up in the woods we had millions of them you would think I would be used to them. Nope can't stand them.
  3. Feet being touched!! HATE it I cant' stand tickles on my feet I can't stand anything brushing over my feet and I hate my feet being hot or cold. I think this started around middle school..not sure why or how.
