Writers Workshop for Wednesday

Why do I write? Miss Kat asks.

Well, I write mainly because it lets me voice my opinions and lets me have a wonderful anonymous person comment on a post saying "You is one ugly bitch"....At least if you are going to call names you would at least not be a coward in hiding your true identity, I mean, really.



This is how I feel when anonymous losers say things like that to me.




Anyway, on to more important things such as my keen ability to write. I love writing and I love informing others of my likes/dislikes. I love using pay-per-post because, well, I get paid for doing what I love! I have many readers who follow and stalk me, even people who don't like me stalk me! Isn't that fun or what? Popularity at its best I always say.

R.I.P. Old Faithful




Okay, so I'm in mourning for my crockpot. I had this thing since Tom and I got married back in 2001. It made the best roasts, italian beef, and porkchops falling apart. I will miss you but unfortunately you will have to be replaced....how else can a great cook be able to cope without a crockpot?

Site that sells inexpensive eyeglasses

Anyone who is blind like me who needs glasses can fully understand that finding inexpensive eyewear is important. When I checked out this site I was amazed at the prices. Where else can you find complete single vision eyeglasses starting at $8.00??

Definitely not at Lenscrafters that's for sure!

What if I could get quality eyeglasses on the cheap? Who would you I them for?
Are two questions asked. My answer to them are:

I could save money on frames and lenses!

I would buy them for myself and my husband who is more blind than me! (I guess if our two children have our "great" eyesight we'll save money using this website!

Also as I was checking out the website I noticed that If I broke my frame, I can reorder a replacement frame directly from the website, if it’s still available in the inventory. AND if I lost a nosepad or have loose or missing screws, they supply those in reasonable quantity on a continuing basis, without charge, as well as a tool to facilitate their replacement! How great is that?!?

The ordering cart looks very simple and easy to use and I have any questions I can call or e-mail them.

I hope you check out this site, I think I may use them for my eyeglass company in the future!

Army Life and Holidays

If you want, post about how the holidays are without your family and how it affected you, grab my badge too!





Bah humbug has been my two favorite words this past year. This holiday will mark the second year without my family and it kills me inside. Last year was the worst. My children made it a little better and put a smile on my face while inside my heart hurt. I longed for another family Christmas and even though I had my husband and 2 children it just didn't seem complete to me. I guess I'm a big family girl.

I know what you are saying, "Suck it up, you are an army wife! We all try to manage the best we can!"

I AM TRYING DAMMIT!

My (wannabe) Halloween costume this year

So I was really wanting to find some cute Halloween Costumes but I was really worried more about finding the kids a costume instead. I did see this really cute and sexy costume at www.halloweenadventure.com that I absolutely loved. I love this because it shows off the cleavage which is a big part of my body that compliments the best! I love the dress because its long but also has the slit up the side which makes it really sexy!

Maybe I'll get it next year when I have a better looking body!

Check it out!
If you like this costume also, you can find it here.

Help find Tyler a cure!




7 year old Tyler is an active and healthy little boy until February of 2005. He was practicing basketball with his father when his arm started shaking uncontrollably. After multiple doctor visits and misdiagnoses, Tyler's many doctors informed his parents that he had Dystonia. The shakes have become crippling muscle and body twists that are uncontrolled.

Tyler's Hope for a Dystonia Cure is a foundation created to advance research and raise awareness about the disorder

I wanted to learn more about it and I found this website that further explains what Dystonia is and how it can effect a person.

Dystonia is a movement disorder that causes the muscles to contract and spasm involuntarily. The neurological mechanism that makes muscles relax when they are not in use does not function properly. Opposing muscles often contract simultaneously as if they are “competing” for control of a body part. The involuntary muscle contractions force the body into repetitive and often twisting movements as well as awkward, irregular postures

Here are some sites about Tyler's Hope. I hope that you check them out and learn more about this rare disease.

1) Official site: www.tylershope.org
2) Facebook cause with 130+ members: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/7729?recruiter_id=2489102
3) My original post about My Hope for Tyler's Hope: http://www.floridaventureblog.com/2006/05/my-hope-for-tylers-hope.html

Thank you for reading!

When I'm upset

So I got hooked on this one blogger, Mama's Losin' It thanks to my friend Ashley's blog.

Miss Mama's Losin' It wants us to choose from some topics so I decided to choose when I'm upset, so here goes:

When I am upset I clean. I don't mean "Oh I'm so mad I'm going to do the laundry" clean, I mean, GET OUT OF MY WAY MOMMA IS ON A CLEANING STREAK kinda clean. Not only does the laundry get done, rooms are spotless, bathrooms are shiny, and the kitchen looks like a kitchen and not like a 30 and 3 year old have been in it trying to concoct up something that considers a meal. When I was childless my house was clean constantly and not because my husband drove me nuts 99.9 percent of the time it was that I lived with a woman who had (still has) a case of OCD. She rubbed off on me so if I have something on my mind, if someone pissed me off, or if I just am bored, I'm off cleaning something. Don't get me wrong, I still have clutter but not too much that I can't concentrate (not much to say about my computer desk however).

I really wanted to write about my holiday memories but it would have been a bit similar to Ashley's because we are both not only army wives but army brats as well and since I had been already yelled at and accused for "copying" someone's blog post (oh yeah and I was deleted off of her myspace, boohoo) I decided to write this one instead.

Til next time!

Well, we tried!


So I bought this Haunted Gingerbread house to put together for Halloween, I thought, "Hey, get some friends together and their kids and have some fun!" Well, I think the kids had more fun than my friend Liz and I trying to make sure the darn thing was staying together with the frosting "glue" The picture above is Liz's daughter eating the end results! Oh well!

I wonder how it will end up when we do the Christmas house! haha

Reporting phone numbers

When I saw an opportunity to post about Phone Number Reporting I was pyched! I know how we all can get a crazy caller, an annoying sales person, or just an annoying prankster every once in awhile and it is our job to report these people. Unfortunately though sometimes the number does not come up so you might just have to ignore it unless it keeps happening. What is great about this website is that other people are reporting these numbers for our benefit. If any of the numbers they listed look familiar to you then you'll know for sure that they are someone trying to scam you or just harass you! Check out the website, I know you will be glad you did!

Nationwide Phone Lookup

I was checking out a Reverse Phone Search today and found it not so informative. I looked up a few phone numbers (as well as mine) and it doesn't show names just the town and state. If you want other information such as:

  • Owner name and address
  • Phone location
  • Household members
  • Phone company and carrier
  • Line type - landline or mobile
You have to pay a fee for it. I think that if I really needed to look up someone's name and location I would pay the fee but if its not really that important then I would rather just leave it as is. This website is great if someone called and you have no clue where the call came from. I know sometimes people call and the area code doesn't look familiar so I will go to this website and see the town and state where the number is located.

Hope this information helped!
