UPDATE on kidnapped girls' captor

This morning I wake to hear on the news that Ariel Castro has died in prison.  He apparently hung himself, but the authorities are still investigating the matter.  I have mixed feelings on this turn of events.  I often have this same mixed feeling when someone is facing either a life or death sentence.  Is it better for someone to sit in a cell and have their freedoms taken away, but at considerable cost to tax payers or have them meet their maker for ultimate judgement?

I guess Ariel Castro decided to take his chances with the highest court and leave this earth.  I can only hope that he is dealt the harshest punishments possible and that his death might somehow give his victims some form of closure.  I am glad that before died, that his victims got to see him declared GUILTY in a court of law as well.

I hope for peace for Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight, Gina DeJesus, and the little girl that was born from this tragedy!

Late last night as I was watching TV with my husband, there came a breaking news story across the television.  I could hardly believe my eyes when I read the words on the screen.  3 girls that had been missing for 10 to 12 years..Gina Dejesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight... had been found ALIVE and basically unharmed.

I say basically, because I can imagine the lingering effects of being held captive like that.  One "lingering affect" is in the form of a 6 year old little girl that the one victim now has.  What is life going to be like for these three women and this little girl.

My prayers going out to all of them!

Been a while

So, I have been away from the blogging thing for a while.  It seems whenever I do get a moment where the kids are either not ON my laptop, and I am not otherwise busy...I am just too darned tired.

I had been working out and signed up with a BEACHBODY program.  I was doing TURBO JAM and I loved it.  I had gotten through the first 2 weeks that hurt,, and I was seeing results and feeling BETTER!  Then I got the flu and got out of my new good habits and fell back into my old ones.

Why is it so much easier to keep a bad habit than a good one?  I am going to try and get back to my blogging AND my working out.  I need some ME TIME!!!

Wish me luck!

Here we HO HO HO GO Again!

Hey there,

Are you all ready in the swing of holiday shopping and preparations? I know some over-achievers that are already DONE with their holiday shopping...not me! I am a think it out, and wait until the last possible moment to buy because I might miss a deal kind of person lol.

I was looking around the internet for good deals on presents and decorations and I found a cool site called DealDash. It is a penny auction site, but it seems to be different than other penny auctions that I have seen.  On Deal Dash you still bid a penny at a time, but on this site if you do not win the penny auction itself, then you have the option to buy the item at a regular price and apply your bids to that price, so you do not lose any money that you already bid. I also like that DealDash has what they call BID BUDDY, so that you can set your bids up to post for you, even if you can not be online for the whole auction...and you can up it before the end of the auction if you choose to.

Pretty cool huh? Check it out!

Hey when you are a busy person, you have to multitask.  I love it when I can combine things that I love at one time.  I found this cool site called, and they have some totally cool stuff on this site.

They have science technology news, and great useful bits of information even if I only have a few minutes to explore.  They also provide coupons and deal alerts to other great sites, such as this Vistaprint coupon code.  So if you are like me and like to sve money, this is an awesome site to check out.

There are so many days when I do not get to see or hear any news or "adult" television, only cartoons and kid shows.  It is really refreshing to get exciting information in my brain once in awhile, so that I remember how to think lol!

I also found a link on to a place called  This site has gadgets and gizmos and other cool stuff.  It is like a toy store for adults, I could go nuts shopping there.  I saw some hilarious stuff there, like werewolf sandals, come on, you know that is fun!

So if you want to visit a mental playground that will keep your brain from turning to mush, check out  Come back and let me know what your favorite tid-bit or item was.  There is so much cool stuff that you may get lost....enjoy!
I just read an article on Huffington Post about a mom getting arrested at her child's graduation for being loud, was my response...

My husband recently graduated college.  There was an announcement made at the beginning for people to please hold applause until all the names were read..did everyone listen to that!

People's names were drown out, and it got so loud that my one daughter was crying and  our ears were ringing.  My family and I had to leave the graduation area before the ceremony was over.  We even had to miss when the graduates got to stand up, turn around and thank their families at the end..I was so upset. 

We were as proud of my husband as any other family was of their graduate, but we were respectful of the rules and others' time AND EARS!

There was even one idiot behind me that cheered for at least every other person...and I know they could not know the entire class...they just wanted to be rude.

I don't think arrest is appropriate, unless the person refuses to leave when asked and causes more of a problem.  I do think there should be some sort of fine or something though, because unless people lose money or time, they do not seem to get that they did something wrong, if they get it at all!
Maybe they should have a hooting and hollering session for 10 minutes before the names start, and then after?  I just wish these people would not have pushed my family out of the graduation early because of their rudeness!....end of response

What do you think on this topic?  What is appropriate to you?  Does anyone follow rules anymore, or is it beneath people to have manners?
