Playing Thief for Xbox one..

So, before I commit money to a video game, I sometimes play the demo to see if it worth my cash. I am right now playing Squar Enix's Thief. Oh Squeenix, why must you have the weirdest control set up for a stealth game? Really, until you get used to the menu, it is a pain. I am running around and trying to figure out how to fight and climb and everything else. It dawned on me, this is not Assasin's Creed. There is no hay waiting for me to hide in. Crap. 
I have to find the clock tower and make my way through a jewelry store without being seen. Yay! I do love games like this believe it or not and it is a nice break from Skyrim. Screw you Lydia. I am not sure how this game will be but so far I am not too unimpressed by it. I guess as the story goes on we will find out more. 
I am trying to get out of the stupid store and I really hate that I can not kill a guard. Really? All I got is a blunt object thing and a bow. The guards act as though an arrow tickles, lovely.

Keep calm and......

Don't tell the elf.  This is hilarious to me. But, with my being almost deliriously tired, anything is. I have been so busy lately I haven't updated ye olde bloge in a long while. Either blog to be exact. Why? Um, life. But, even busy mommy bloggers still update. I have yet to find a balance as I am trying to keep my house clean. It is almost impossible with a 1 year old. I am jealous of people with spotless homes. Jealous! I am also running after him and trying to do everything else. I am not sure what to do about Gofashiondeals, it was my first blog but, I can't seem to focus on it. And as much as I love fashion, I don't feel like I do that justice. I am a geeky, nerdy,video game playing,mommy,and Pinterest crazy girly girl. I love the latest trends and shop them,but always have a soft spot for shirts that say dragon slayer. So, do I keep Gofashiondeals going or do I go back to my geeky roots and continue there?

The choices to be made are big ones concerning my blogging.

And also, explaining gender bending characters to my mom is like explaining the fall of Rome to a 3 year old. My family is already planning Halloween and the theme is Lord of the Rings. I made a joke that  I could go as Legolas(I'm blonde) , her immediate response is  along the lines of "you can't dress in drag...." I immediately face palmed. She sent me a text to go as Galadriel instead, I died from laughing. It was hilarious. The census of friends have already chosen Elsa for me, considering I can't go anywhere without being called that. The costume I want is $200,pricey I know but, I will be mad if I go as a character and it falls apart before anything. Like Alice in Wonderland. Paid $59 for an Alice costume for it to fall apart. You get what you pay for, I guess. I could make it. However,there is this thing called time management. And I have to make a baby Frodo costume. Make and post progress? Ummm. Hmmm.

Temper tantrums and me

Oh the tantrums have been so epic lately. It seems that now that my son can walk better he has discovered more interesting ways to throw tantrums. I just let him go and he gets over it. But, he has this notion of wanting to be held all the time if I am walking around. I am trying to work through this. We also have fights over the iPad, he wants it when I have it. We need to correct this. Which I have no doubt we will. 

But for now, we will continue our Return of the King marathon(again) followed by Harry Potter. After all who would love hanging out with this little baby boy?

Now I remember why..

Why I stopped playing Tomb Raider and went back to Tamriel. I am finding it hard to have Laura to jump from little column to bigger column. It is almost hard to do. Maybe I am just I need another coffee? I may need it, because it is either this or going back to the dragon hunt in Skyrim. I need a break. 
The controls on Tomb raider are not helping. 

By the way the first Tomb Raider was released in 1996. Let that sink in.

New venture to do.

Shop my AVON store!: Here's a sneak peak at some of the latest products available at Avon. Be sure to click

I have been trying to find a way to help with some things around the house. And selling Avon may be a way to help out more. I loved their products a long time ago. Nail polishes, hand creams, mascaras, and eye liners were what I was always sure to have. Well, that and lip balms. My last Avon rep was no longer selling and then  I decided to take matters into my own hands. I hope to do well. I know a lot of this kind of thing is mostly face to face. But, due to matters beyond my own control I have yet to venture out. Take a look at the Avon shop link above! Thanks for your support!

New is tough

If this were easy then everyone would be doing this,right?
The above is what I was saying to myself as I was trying to fish a brochure out of my purse to someone who was a potential customer. You see, on top of my eBay store gofashiondeals, I sell Avon. Which I am pretty sure I mentioned in my last entry..pretty sure. I am wanting to do this as I may have stated before for many reasons;to help out, to stay home for my son,and I was a loya Avon customer for years a long time ago.

Today, I said to myself I was going to hand out 3 Avon brochures. Seems simple right? Wrong.i found myself looking around and being very shy, didn't say a word. Great job me. Another opportunity arose when my mom and I were talking to this very nice lady in another store. I got enough courage to hand her a flier and then my hand got caught on my purse and my son started to have a fit. 
Which brings me to my initial sentence. And yes, this is hard. And it mAkes one realize just how introverted one is. It is something I will have to break out of. For the sake of my Avon business,I will have to become the person who can talk to anyone. I will.
Just who would have thought it would be so difficult. Oh well, there is always tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.

Wow, been a while.

Wow, it has been a while hasn't it? I have been busying myself on gofashiondeals, and ignoring this blog. This is where I talk all things motherish and other stuff. I find myself being torn between two worlds. This blog world and the other. Gofashiondeals is where I talk about fashion and other stuff. And while I should be just talking about that, I have noticed that other bloggers talk about more than just their niches. I am not sure what to do here. Do I continue to post everything? This includes fashion, the weird, baby things, and cosmetic goodies. Do I put all my "life stuff" back on here? I am so torn. And now with my selling Avon, I have a cute little blog there as well. I feel both blogs can relate to that. I mean I even post about my eBay store on both. It's baby week on my eBay store this week. I am going to figure this out. 

An update. Though while I decide.
I have taken the Avon plunge. I have decided to sell Avon. Which I posted on my Twitter feeds and my Facebook page for gofashiondeals. I guess this belongs there. But, I need to say this. I feel like somehow my family won't be very supportive. My husband is, but they may not be. I can feel the eye rolling from them as I talk of it. Even though the only one I have said it directly to is my mom. She looked at me like I was a foreign object in her home. And then got the, dreaded and awkward "ooookkkaaayy....." Silence would have been better. 

I feel this is a good fit for me and fate keeps tossing it at my every turn when I sit wondering about what I shall do to help out financially around here. Along with eBay. Fate pretty much slapped my face with it yesterday, and well...we will see. I am more confident this time than with Mary Kay(disaster that it was). I feel this time will be different, this time there is more at stake. I want to succeed and be a part of something with good and I loooove their stuff. 

We shall see how deep the rabbit hole is this time and how far it goes.

Walk 5k a day. I can handle this.

I have been trying to find ways to get my butt back into shape. I was doing really well with the Xbox fitness on Xbox one. But, with a little man it started to get harder to do. He was either climbing on me or at nap time, I had other stuff to do. I have a household to run and an eBay business to attend to. So how can I get back to where I was even more and be healthy about it? Walking.

My son and I already did walks around the block but on a small scale. To the mailbox and then home. So, Monday I started walking 5k everyday. Why is that better than a workout DVD? Well, we get out of the house and it is something I can do with little man. We put on runkeeper app and pandora radio set to Disney music. I talk to little man about what is going on, we have very meaningful conversations. Or at least I feel we do. He babbles back. 

We walk on a turrain that is sandy and not so easy. Most of the roads around here are not paved. And so we push through soft sugar sands. The stroller is weighted down with my 23lbs son who doesn't seem like much but add that with bottles of water and sugar sand and a heavy stroller and I got one neato weightset. 

I feel it definitely and each round is 263 calories burnt according to the runkeeper app. But, it isn't counting the weight from the stroller and little man. 

What I am happy about too is the fun we have. And I am going to keep a photo log here or on gofashiondeals for our adventures. A walk a day takes the weight and inches away. :)

This is so not easy. Bottle weening and bedtime issues.

I am trying to wean the boy off the bottle. I am slowly removing it as I tried to take it 100% away and my boy wouldn't drink for the rest of the day. He refused. He was so crabby. He likes his one cup but not enough to drink it all the time. The doctor told me to just take it away. I am trying but it is so hard. I am trying to not rely on it. And he is learning how to use this straw cup. 

It is great, but he isn't getting how to use it much. I am sure he will learn. I also have one that resembles a bottle.
 But, he fights it. A lot. I am trying. This is so hard. 

Now, bedtime. My boy won't go to bed. And crying it out doesn't help. He just goes for hours! 
I read to him and put nighttime lotion on him. He still won't do it. Last night was bad, and after an hour I figured out the problem. His mouth. He teethes worse at night! And he is in pain. Once I do teething gel and if it is bad enough Tylenol; he falls asleep. He then sleeps all night. I also just picked up teething tablets.  We will see how it works. But, who knew this was the reason he doesn't want to sleep. Actually, another mom would up have known. I am slow to the party.

Transitions; a boy and his babababa babable.

It has come to be that we have to start weening baby from his little man bottle to his little man cup. He is not happy. The doctor told us to just quit it cold turkey. Just take it 100% away from the baby. Wow, is all I can say.  He is not happy about this. And when he is drinking from the cup he ends up having a bunch of water or juice just fall back out. On purpose? Maybe. By not knowing what to do? Maybe. He was used to slow flow bottles and hated the fast flow. So, here we are trying different cups. I found two he likes and I am hopeful he gets the hang of this. For now, I have a grouchy baby who wants his babababa babababble.

Little man, oh little man, how it hate to see you cry.

Doctors appointments are a neccessary part of a baby's life. We know it is for the best and they need it. But, it is so hard watching my little man get shots especially today. He was not my normal little man. He was more upset than ever before. Sure at other appointments he cries, but this one was out of control. He was overly upset and yeah I hate shots too. They hurt and to this little guy holding him down is awful. I know we aren't hurting him, we hold him down to avoid injury. But, he doesn't know that and so he cried. The crying turned into an out of control squeal and his howling so would make even the most accomplished of temper tantrum thrower be envious. 
I felt horrible, 4 shots later, and a glance at the ears; I am sent on my way with an upset baby, a prescription, and a tired mind trying to think of lunch foods. 

Never go to a store tired or hungry. I bought no food, but I did buy books for my little man. A good selection of Dr. Seuss finery. How can you go wrong with a Fox in Sox? You can't. The doctor told me he needs more reading, and he doesn't bring books to me. He would rather chew on them. I blame me for that as I read to him from the iPad. But, now we have the option. 

As far as developmental. Well, he is in the upper 92% for height. His weight is good. And the doctor says he will walk when he is ready. So, for everyone harassing me over him talking or walking...shush. He is perfect and he is fine. Most little ones do not walk until 17 months. My boy will do it when he is ready. 

He is lactose intolerant, yay. He is like me. And today we got him more fresh veggies to add to his green beanie diet. I hope he likes squash still. As we have a ton of it! 

So, moral of the story moms and dads. Your baby will walk when ready. They will talk when ready. That doesn't make them underdeveloped. So, do not rush it. You can help them along by reading and playing walking games. But, take your time. Rome was not built in a day and baby will get there. 

Until next time.

Sun,sea,and sand. South Florida vacation.

Hi there!
I am writing to you on my last day of vacation. Here in sunny South Florida. Plenty of condos, resorts, peoples o watch, and people with too much money. Hahaha. But I digress. We are staying with some family here and are having a wonderful relaxing holiday. We went to the beach and little man still doesn't like it. He loves to play in the sand, but hates the water.

The first day at the beach was cloudy and really windy. There were warning on the life guard towers. Yellow and purple flags. These mean rip tides and dangerous marine life. Basically no one was allowed in the water. If someone did they got flagged back in. Plus the water was too freakishly cold. Brrrr.

We ate at a great taco stand and ate gourmet tacos, burritos, and quesadilla . Then finished the day with frozen yogurt. Little man loves it, in small doses. 

This post was originally written Monday. Next trip to south Florida I will not forget my passport or baby's. Bimini will be done!

The horse track. :)

First bout of stomach flu.

There is nothing worse than laying on the bed with your baby while he is talking to you and then bleh. He vomits. Oh god. It went everywhere. I took him out to his daddy in the living room so I could shower. Only to find him at the door to our room crying mama and puke on the floor. He got away for 1 minute from daddy. That is when it became more than just an isolated event. It became a full on my son is sick as ever problem. 
It was constant and I had this feeling of helplessness. I had no idea of what to do. All I know is my precious baby boy wanted me and I was happy to oblige puke or not. I was constantly covered in it, but hydration was key. He was so sick and I couldn't do anything about it. He just kept throwing up. 
Finally at 9:30 pm, he stopped and was just an unhappy and very ill baby. I could comfort him and make him comfy. He would sleep in our room that night in his pack n play. Which we made super comfy. 

Then it struck, I was sick. I puked my guts out and felt horrible. Passed out by the toilette and threw up  more. Yay. I got better and today I could actually eat. Now hubby has it. Joyous. But both of us felt absolutley horrible that little man went through it in the first place. No baby should be sick like that. It hurts me to think of it now. 

His first stomach flu and no it was not a Kodak moment.

What we were told to do was to keep hi hydrated with watered down gatoraid and water. He was able to eat solids 24hours later. 
Glad it is over.

Free lipstick continued.

Yesterdayi posted about free lipstick and what not; I realized that I had gotten the Loreal Paris items free. And, I actually got the rb(rewards bucks) back for $5. If you think about it that made my makeup free. Yay! 
How awesome. I didn't realize I had that until this morning actually. I though I reached my limit. I guess that baby sale was a separate thing from the regular stuff. Good for me. Because I had gotten 81% savings and this was just icing on the cake. I don't understand why more people do not coupon. Save some money!

Friday, March 21, 2014

Free lipstick! What?

Yes that is 3 free makeups. 2 lipsticks and one nail polish 100% free. I got a paper about a week ago and got in my insert a coupon from Wet N' Wild cosmetics. It was for a dollar off and Walmart had them for $.93 a thing. So freeeeeeeeee......eeeeeeee.....nail polish and lip sticks. I am rebuilding the massive amounts of makeup I had to throw out after an eye infection my son shared with me as well as things being past their prime. So, when I get stuff for cheap I jump on it. Like some Loreal Paris eyeshadow and concealer. After 2 coupons and a CVS deal from buying diapers, I got them for $4 total. Wow. How? Ok, here is how

The deal at CVS this week was spend $30 on baby goods(diapers) and you get $10 back. Well, I had also a $5 off any $30 purchased in baby diapers. Wow! On top of that I had 2 $1.50 off Pampers Cruisers and 2 $1.50 off Pampers Baby Dry. There was $11 off the $34 that it cost me. Each pack was on sale for $8.99. So total out of pocket was $23 divide that by four and that makes each pack $6. That is not a bad deal. This gave me $10 cash reward from CVS to use on something else and since makeup is pricey, I used it on Loreal. 
The eyeshadow was $7.49 and the concealer was $9.49. I had a mfc for the concealer worth $3 off. The. I had $1 off mfc for the eyeshadow palette. $6.49. Then the $10 off, so I got really inexpensive Loreal. On top of that the diapers boosted my Pampers rewards over 500 points and made it fees able to get another shutterfly set. Yay! Go coupons.

So, he isn't walking yet. Big deal.

I can not wait for my boy to walk believe me. And I love hearing stories from people about their child's first steps. My son, however, has taken steps but he gets scared and stops. There is nothing wrong with him, he just isn't ready. So, leave him and me alone. Please. 

My boy is happy and healthy and cruises. He plays on his own, is very active, and the pediatrician said he is normal. And it is normal for a baby not to be fully walking at 1 year or 12 months. So, why must I get the third degree over this? Why must people go out of their way to make me feel bad? Why must they make me feel like my son is not developing right? Move on and worry about your kid who just shoved a crayon in their nose. Don't bother yourself about mine.

Ok, so he isn't walking. I am not worried, he will when he is ready. But, this experience that I keep having is making me annoyed. And I get super defensive. Wouldn't you? 
"Is he walking yet?" 
"Why not? Wow, my kids walked at 10-11 mos"

What would you say to that? I was suggested to have him see a doctor. For that, really? 
No. He is fine and will be fine. He will walk, when he is supposed to. And that is up to him.

What would you do with $400 million?

My hubby and I were talking about this today over our coffee and Special K cereal. What would you do with $400 million? My response was of a responsible nature; pay off debt. Pay off the mortgage and student loans. That I am sure is a given for all who do win that kind of cash. At least I hope it is. He said he wanted to buy the no hunny. You may not. I suggested buying the empty lots behind us and next to us for a big back yard. He suggested buying a bigger house. Of course. Why can't we by like Roseanne's family and live in the same home and just finish fixing it up? You know remodel it. Make a bigger kitchen, have new carpets, maybe see if we could add on? Or not. 

Then I got to thinking, I would buy a new car for me. Something I have never had. I have never owned my own car, or had that first car joy. And I am almost 30. My hubby had the car we still drive when he was 17. But me? Never. It sucks and quite frankly it is sad. Here I am almost 30 and can't afford a new car or newish car. So yeah, if I ever won the lotto ; I would buy a new car. Something practical too and definitely not a "mom" car. No minivans here, yuck. 

I would of course remodel the kitchen and floors. I would paint the inside better and find a way to get closet space and a bigger master bath. I want a tub with jets so I can relax after chasing little man around. After all of that and a well earned vacation, I would invest,save, and still clip. Couponing would not leave, I mean look how much I save! 

Yeah, I have heard of the "lotto curse", I laugh at that. I believe the people just didn't spend wisely. I wouldn't have to go to the finest of finery as far as hotels for vacations. A cruise is cheap and fun, from what I hear. And 2 vacations a year would be reasonable. I wouldn't have to spend insane amounts to have friends, buying friendship is not for me. Nor would I lend out crazy amounts to family members who would only want back in our lives because of $. Sorry, not going to fall for it. Family or not. Don't care. 

My question is what would you do with that kind of cash? How would you handle greedy family and friends? Would you worry about that?

Blaaaaaaaahhhhhhh bleh

That is how I feel today. Blah and bleh. I have been trying to clean and get my home in order(a loosing battle) and I just feel so scatter brained. I try to get something's done and little man wakes up. It is like he instinctivly knows when I am painting the bathroom or the trim. Or if I am doing laundry he knows and DING he is awake. I finally turned on old episodes of Roseanne and just watched them while playing with my son. We were attacking each other with dinosaurs. 
I tried putting him down earlier and he still cries. He cried for about 25 minutes and I am not big on cry it out, but I can not spend 30 minutes putting him to sleep anymore at least at bed time. I feel so lost and like a bad mom because my son won't sleep. I don't know what else to do. I am at my wits end,really. 
Then there is the bottle issue, when do you fully switch over to a cup? I have a cup for him and try to get him to use it and he does and doesn't. I feel lost as a mom. Just lost. 
Am I doing a good job?

Why I deserve a glass or bottle of wine.

If anyone had ever told me how hard birthdays are to plan I wouldn't have believed them. My goodness, even my Halloween parties are not this hard to plan. So why did I have so much trouble with this? Is it because it is little man? Maybe. I have to think about little kiddies and not just adults. I have to say, I did pretty good. I couponed most of the food, got helium for the balloons, and cooked today away. It is 7:32 pm and I am just now sitting down. I tried to take a nap earlier and little man wanted to jump on mom. So, here we are and I am trying to think abut getting a glass of wine.
Monday March 10,2014
Everything went well at his party yesterday. Even though I had a lot of no call no shows(thanks) even after they RSVP they would be there. I was hurt but, still we had fun even when he cried for people singing. And his teeth decided to want to come through at the fun part of his party. It was a great party.
The kids who came had fun and all he adults had a great time catching up and talking nonsense. The only thing is now to write thanks you notes and figure out what to do with all this left over food. Mom was right, I did too much. But, I was expecting a much larger crowd. Oh well. We threw a great party. 
And thanks to everyone who came!

Happy birthday my little one.

It happened,yes. My baby boy turned one today! I can not believe it.  It feels like just yesterday we were in the hospital recovering waiting to go home. It feels so surreal. I have a 1 year old baby. He survived us for a whole year. There were so many firsts! First tooth, first bottle, first holidays, first foods, first French fry. I am in wonder at his amazing inquisitive nature and happy demeanor. He truly is a wonderful kid and I couldn't have asked for better. This boy means the world to me and I just can not wait to see how he continues to grow and change. This is just a great feeling and while it is great I am sad too. He starts to get more independent every day and when he walks it will be even more. He won't want mama to carry him, he will want to walk on his own. 
He is my everything and I love him so very much. Happy birthday baby boy!

Happy Tuesday!

I have been dealing with quite a bit lately. A teething boy, a hubby sick with bronchitis, and keeping fit. I feel like I am cheating myself because I haven't been able to exercise lately . I have been way too tired. This no sleep, lack of sleep, wish I had sleep stuff is just taking all I have out of me. And although I am sick myself, I hide it well. Concealer is a beautiful thing and I have to be up and moving. I have way too much to do around the house. I hate that my mind never thinks it is clean enough. My mind is OCD in that my house never seems clean enough. I don't know if it is the fact that we have that ant problem or the fact that I can not get my carpet clean thanks to the last people letting their pets use it as a litter box. I don't know if this obsession is from when I was growing up and my mom just gave up on cleaning because we would just mess it up again and she worked. So the house was always messy. 

I am trying to figure out my worry. My husband says the house looks fine but I don't feel that way. In every home I have lived I have never felt my home has been good enough and have major insecurities over this. I blame someone in my life for part of this, I had an aha moment yesterday. Someone spent the holidays here and took it upon themself without permission to clean my home as if it were dreadfully nasty.this person whenever they were over does this,comments on my taste in art,paint,and tells me how to care for MY stuff. Which left me feeling like poo, like I was not good enough and therefore my home isn't either.Every home has been under furnished and cluttered. Clutter that I try to throw away but it always comes back.I try to organize but can not as there is no space. I am going to watch Hoarders, maybe that will help me feel better and help me throw stuff away. And the other issue is money, if we had it we could get all the carpets replaced, the kitchen redone, the walls all painted, the bathrooms the way I wanted. I want my home to be my dream home, not my dungeon. Which it feels that way because no matter what I do, the inside needs fixing and no matter how much I scrub it, it can not hide broken. 
I wish I could wave a wand and it would be fixed, but that is just silly.

Never shop when hungry, or when sick with flu.

I told my self I wouldn't go shopping until this coming Friday before little man's bday party. Well, we needed things. Like diapers,milks,juice, and something for me to throw in the oven and get it out when the timer goes off. I also needed one of those neat snack cups for my baby, this way the dog can not get them and little man won't make a huge mess....again. 
I went to Publix this morning and did ok at my shopping. Not the best deals but then again I only went there for milk and Tylenol cold. Which I got, along with Texas toast(it was bogo free and I had 2 mfc's for a total of $1 off, so it was $1.89 for 2 boxes.)  Then I got cereal for hubby. Raisin Bran and cinnamon toast crunch. Little man needed littlest man food, so I got more of that.  Sorry to say but no pics of that small haul.
 Then later after a regretful bowl of chili and a baby without a nap we went to Target. It was part 2 of shopping as we needed diapers and juice. And There is always room for that. Hey, I am high maitenence mama. I want to look good. And most of my Maybeline was less than $2. I also got a Rimmel lipgloss for $2.  

This all cost me $50 before coupons it was more than $75. Let's face it diapers are expensive. And not only that I had to get extras. Like the juice. The 3 cans of Iams were free. Actually I made money on them. $1.70 for 3 cans and I had a coupon for $2 off 3 so, they were free with a 30cent profit.
The makeup was cheap too.
The E.L.F brush was only a dollar but worth it. They make great brushes. The Mascara was only $2 after coupons and the nail polish by Maybeline was only $1.89. I am the master of getting shampoos,conditioners,and serums free or $1. That Loreal Sleek it, was only $.99! Who said you can't afford to get that stuff for great hair? You can and it is awesome stuff. One post I'll have to show you the stock pile of my bathroom. Once you see that you will do it too.

Ok, so how did I manage that? So, Target had it on sale for $3.99 I had a sc for $1 off and a mfc for $2 off. Math. It was only $.99. Yes that is right $.99! 
Diapers, let's talk diapers before my medicine kicks in and I get a nap while hubby watches boy. (Hubby took his sick nap already ) 
The pampers baby dry were $8.99 every day. I had a mfc for $1.50 off and a sc for $.50 off. That made it $6.99 for the bag. The wipes were on sale for $5.49, I had a mfc for $1.50(which is rare) and a sc for $.50; each bag cost $3.49 that is a great deal!  Over all I would say not too bad, definitely not one of my best trips but ok, none the less. I wasn't at my best either, almost puked while shopping.Be sure to check out the coupon links at the top of the blog for some super savings!

Big headed ants? Here?

Of all the things to happen this was one. A costly pest infestation. A pest infestation that I had been complaining about to Terminix since March last year. Something they always ignored me about. And they expect me to pay them, when they also let someone use our info to get pest Terminix. Won't happen, and I never have received any notifications about it either. Funny. 

We have been finding piles of sand in our house. That's right, in our house. And it has been a struggle to get rid of these little pests. What got me really going was the HUGE piles I saw in the garage. It was as if a massive ant colony was surviving and thriving in an intricate society or many towns,villages, and rulers. Oh wait. They were. We have a super colony under my house. And it as the new pest control company said, "how could they have missed this?" 

Wanna see it?
Look here.
 This is a small bit of where they are. And they are throughout the house. How gross and costly. Pest control will be here 1once a week for the next month or so and then every month. Yay. The fun of being a home owner. And on top of all of this I have to figure out where in the foundation in the front room is the crack. They want to come up through it. 
This should have been handled, this should have never have gotten this bad. If I was listened to and not made out to be "seeing things" we wouldn't have the outdoors in. I clean like a mad woman, my day starts out with kitchen cleaning, followed by vacuuming the house, dusting, mopping, and cleaning bathrooms. I feel the ants make me seem like my home is dirty, and it is totally embarrassing. But, here I am blogging about it. 
There is a trench around my home from the trumador, all I need is some water a draw bridge and a couple of gators waiting. It is a moat. They will fill it back up. Still, I can not help but worry about this. Wouldn't you?

Diaper change from hell.

Picture it, February 27th 2014, there is a beautiful mama and an adorable baby boy about to embark on a diaper adventure that was to be turned into a life changing experience. If you get the picture it reference you are awesome. The baby had pee pee in his diaper and needed changing. The mama needed to do this because of diaper rash. The boy, however, was playing with his Lion King toy and did not want to stop. What did the mom do? She did the only thing she could. She battled the infant toddler boy to get a clean diaper on. It was a battle of wills, a battle of safety, a battle to not get peed on. The mom won, but she hated how horrible of an experience it was. Well, that mama was me.

This story, unlike many a Sophia stories, was not made up. This is a true story. All of a sudden my baby boy won't sit for a diaper change. He hates it. He tosses,turns,cries, fidgets, and almost falls when I change his diaper. And I have been lost on what to do. I have tried singing to him, I have tried giving him something to play with(most of the time it works), but nothing worked today. I finally had to hold him down and what should have taken 1 to 2 minutes of HIS cute little time, took 5. I went to good old Google for help. And I guess this isn't uncommon. Babies around this age are so busy playing they don't want a diaper change. This I know will happen again when he is older and doesn't want to stop playing to go potty in the "big boy" toliet, no matter how bad the pee pee dance is. 
But today, dealing with today, he didn't want it. And no matter how much of a tooty booty he was, he didn't want me interfering with his play. 

I got him to let me change him before bed, though. He was given a bottle of water. And I used the straps on my changing pad to hold him in place. For the record, I forgot those were attached to the thing. As I have never needed them before.And since after looking on mom sites and blogs, I took the pad off the changing table and put it on the floor. He let me change him. I was even able to put cream on his butt. Yay! Now, will it be like this if he needs a changing tonight? Or tomorrow? I am not sure. 
I guess I can wait an see what happens. I hope he will let me change him without the drama attached.

Eating a piece of heaven; muller corner

I have discovered a yogurt that is absolutley divine.. 
I am hooked on Muller corner yogurt dark choc. I am in love with it's creamy texture and bits of chocolate combined with cherry or raspberry puree. I am in love. I need more. I love it but hate the container. The angles makes it hard to get all that goodness out. I need the goodness, change the container. Because, I feel silly eating yogurt with a baby spoon from ikea.

Most awesome stackable toy.

Babies love stackable toys. The rings are fun to throw around and are a classic. But, hubby brought his boy home something special. A stackable science toy! Because science! This toy is a stackable toy that no matter how he moves it around it won't topple over so easily.
It has grooves that allow this to happen. My hubby saw it and bought it when he was on a trip for business. What a great daddy! #science

The balls are heavy but very colorful, something babies love. They love all the colors. They love these tactile toys. Tobbles neo is available online for $26 or at MOMA. They come with concave tops and round bottoms. The neo has geometric tactile concave tops. Babies just have a lot of fun, and may I say my hubby and I had fun with them too. Artsy and appealing, these toys are not an eyesore. I will have them on a coffee table. These are not your average stackable toy. 

The day I became that person.

You know the type of person on Facebook who always posts memes or things like that? Well forever I said I would never do it. All of a sudden it dawned on me.....I have been doing exactly that. I have become the Facebook quiz poster,meme poster, news poster. I have become the silly reporter of silly things I see on other pages. I became what I didn't want to be, which is annoying. Joy. Fun. Fabulous. 
I look at my Facebook and see an over abundance of Lord of the Rings memes and cracks on Twighlight. Which is a movie I only made half an hour through. Sparkling vampires? Really? 

I sit here thinking abut all that silliness on my feed. Do people actually care? Do they like it? As a Facebook user do any of you hate it? 
I just don't know, all I do know is I am annoying myself. Fun right?

A day without booger; a bag of groceries, and a glass of wine.

I won't start this by saying oh I went shopping for an hour and saved $50 at Target or Walmart, or wherever. Nope, I am going to start this post by saying I went shopping from 11 am to 8pm, and oh my god I am tired! #mydogsarebarking I went shopping for 8 hours to 4 different stores! All this, just to get that "good" deal. Well folks I did it. I spent a little over $200 but saved $3-400. I have had a glass or two of Moascato, so I am estimating. It is somewhere between $3-400 saved. Wine. 
 I guess in the overall big picture I saved a bit. And I got things to donate to charity. The local Lutheran church gives food to those in need with an open pantry to those who need food. And believe me I know what it is like to go without. And it is rough. It is why I coupon and why I will never stop. I now have so much in my stock that I don't have to shop for a month! Or two. And I am prepared for any financial catastrophe. So, in the event of cataclismic financial issues, we can survive off the stock for months. Yay. 
Our first stop was at Windixie, which is an ok store to shop. Their coupon policy is a bit strange but I did get good bargains. For instance, wine, #herewegoagain was only 2 for $10. And here lately Barefoot wine is $6.97,so this was a great deal! I saved $1.97 on each bottle. So, their coupon policy. If there is a bogo, you can only use 1 mfc and 1 sc. You can not stack the mfc. Bummer. I tried that today....nope. But one this item fabreeze scents; I got on sale and used a coupon. $1.47 for a cartridge. And it was a Christmas pine scent. (Hides cat smell.)  great right?
Then we went to Walmart. And I stocked up on cat food for $2.47 a bag. I had mfc from my coupon site  for $2 off any size Iams cat food. They had a small bag for $4.47. I got a bunch of them along with dog food, tooth brushes for my son, Pampers(not pictured), and Easter stuff. I also got FREE makeup from Wet n' wild cosmetics. How? Well, a $1.00 off any Fergie or regular cosmetic item by that company from the paper. The eye liner was $.93 and the nail Polish was $.93 soooo, free. 

Excuse my Olive Garden box..I got hungry. 
Then we went to Target. This is where I saved a bunch. People let me tell you, Target is a coupon gold mine. If you play the field right you can walk out with so much stuff it is crazy! If you have Redcard and you have the Cartwheel, you can save extra on each item. Example: Glade wax melts. They were on sale for $2.99 each. I had a sc (store coupon) for $1.50 off two and I had a mfc(manufacturer coupon) for $1 off two. There was a Cw for 5% off and Redcard is an extra 5% so, it was roughly $3.14 for two. If you want per item it is $1.57 each. Not bad. There was also a sale on Colgate white mouthwash. This was a steal! $2.99 on sale, sc for $1 and mfc for $1 along with Redcard . I got it for less than $1. I took advantage of that the day before.
So, I got another bottle. Then there was a good deal on baby food. I had sc and several mfc for $ 1 off two Gerber Graduates baby cereal.  It came to about $.74 a container. I stocked up.My boy needs variety. 
He also got green beans. His fave. The cat litter was $7.49 and I got it for $4.49 after my high value coupon. Mfc $3 off! The spree in the picture was free! They were 10 for $10 and I had $1 coupon for $1 off. The French mustard was $.58. The picture above was photo one of two.
I got my hubby dark chocolate m&ms I had a Cw, sc, and mfc. So they were cheap. $2.99 a bag I got $2.50 off two and the 25% off Cw. Wow. I basically got one bag free.
Glade again. The Mio was on sale for $2.50 I got each one for $1 after the mfc. The Loreal hair, I had a Catalina for $1 off.  Catalina's are coupons that print after or during a transaction, to be used on the next transaction. Cvs has these a lot.  Then I had the mfc for $2 off. I got it for $.99! Yay! The Purex crystals were on clearance. I got each one for $2 and the Downy for $ 2 after sc and mfc's. The Party mix was on sale for $1.50 a bag and I had sc and mfc. Each bag was less than a dollar. The Glade sprayer was $7.99 I had a mfc for $3 off then a rebate from checkout51 for $3, making it $1.99! 
I loved saving the money and if you don't include my bracelet I only spent $80 on groceries here.

This picture did not include the freezer items. Which needs to be frozen. So they were not in the picture. I got 12 Maruchan Yokisoba noodles for FREE! I have been holding on to these coupons and there it was a bogo at Publix for these. Normally priced at $.99 each, my coupon for $1 off two made each and everyone free. That is nuts. The Pure Via stevia had a sc for $1 off , I also had mfc's for $1 off. Each box was $2.49 each , after coupons I only paid $.49 each. I had coupons for everything but the vinegar and formula. The razors I got were $9.99 to $10.99 each. I had a sc for $3 off and a mfc for $4 off. Each pack was $2.99 to $3.99. I could not pass that up, ahem it is getting hot again in Fl and that means dresses and shorts. The Pedigree Dentastix was bogo, each set of 2 only cost $1 after a Target sc and a mfc. Along with all the coupons I had Ibotta and checkout51 rebates. This is where you earn cash back for certain items purchased. These are available in the App Store or on google play. As well as online. Combine this with coupons for lots of savings.  
My total at the register was over $200. We all got excited watching the amount go down from the coupons. I love seeing the total go up, nothing better than a slight financial freak out. Then I absolutly love seeing the total go down. One day it will be lower that that, but for now I do not have to shop for a long long time. And the last thing I wanna see is another grocery store as of right now.

Battle of wills.

Mommy and baby had a epic war last night. What it was about was bedtime. It was a battle of wills. A battle of patience. A battle of mom vs baby. Who would outlast the other? Well it was me, but he didn't go without a massive fight.

It began like any normal night. He has been sleeping throughout the night and refuses to sleep in the morning anymore. There goes my morning exercise sesh with Jillian and Xbox. But, he ate his cereal and it was time for zzzz's. I thought he would sleep all night and I thought he would go to bed easily.bah!  We were watching Peppa pig and little man out of no where started screaming. What?! I was struck with worry of course and rushed him to his room for Oragel and hope it would work. Now remember we just got over bronculitis and ear infections. The gel did nothing, so I had to use Tylenol. He still was screaming. After walking him around the room, I sat down and gave him a bottle. He took a few sips and threw it. We went from a pain cry to a full on temper tantrum that would make any two year old envious. He wouldn't stop, and I tried to comfort and while I am not a "cry it out" parent; I had to put him in his crib and walk away. I was lost. And he wouldn't stop. 
I went into my room and watch tv while he cried, checking on him every 10 mins. He wouldn't stop and it was out of control. I went into his room again and picked him up. I tried to soothe him,but he was just so upset for being upset; I don't even think he realized I was holding him. 
I walked around the room and finally he fell asleep. After flailing around like a fish out of water, throwing himself, scratching mama, and screaming he fell asleep in my arms. I felt horrible. 
And hope tonight will be better. Wish us luck. We need it.

His 1 year pics, what a trip.

I had the brilliant idea of getting little man's pictures taken. After seeing many friends have professional photos of their kids for EVERYTHING, I felt like this was needed. So we got St Pattys day pics and his "look at me I am turning 1!" Pics done. He was all over the place, he was full of "I don't wanna " and I am hoping he has some good pics. My friend said she got some and I felt bad because he was really uncooperative. But what can you expect from am 11 month old baby. He, by her standards was just fine, and she would know she is a photographer. 
We used balloons and his 1st bday piƱata. The idea was cute and I can not wait to see the results.
I needs to fill my walls with photos of my little family.I am one proud mama. I got more put into his baby book, which is something I rarely do. I looked back and thought wow, one word answers. Genius. I was tired, really tired then.his baby book is significant because it is almost a year, and I never in the before did I think I would be here boasting about a baby. But, his pictures are a monumental thing, he has survived us being his parents for a whole year and we have the pics to prove it. We love every minute of it, and even though I am with this little man every day, I never have enough little man time. It never gets old. 

We have just too much fun.

He ate what?!

The other day I was putting together my ikea entertainment center for my hubby and little man was nearby playing with his hammer and toys. It made me smile seeing him playing so intently. I went back to working on my ikea thing. Then I look over and he is gone. He went back by the PC and what was he chewing on ? My Samsung earbuds for my phone! I quickly jumped up and ran to him. Thinking oh crap oh crap. Then I wrestled the earbuds away, I had a sigh of relief when I saw that one had its silicone piece still on. And then I saw it. The one bud had no silicone on it and baby was making a chewing face. I jammed my finger into his mouth to get it out. And the little bugger swallowed it! Craptastic! Now what?! I googled it. And basically everyone said it has to work it's way out. And he was fine he was eating and drinking, no fever. I was now on poop patrol. I had to watch for a pink piece of silicone in his poop. Awesome, just awesome. Not only did I feel like the worst mommy ever, I felt bad for my baby. 
Flash forward to yesterday. While cleaning the bathroom I saw a piece of pink sitting on the floor. It was the missing ear bud!! He didn't eat it after all! My son was going to be fine. I had been having nightmares about that for days and then found that piece. How did it get there? Did he spit it out and it fell off me? Did I actually succeed in getting it out? Who knows. But what I do know is I am greatful for finding it and it has been put up and away.

I know babies do stuff like this, but I was not ready for it.

Saturday shopping spree, save save save!

Yeah, I was the girl in line at Target taking forever at checkout. With my stack of coupons I was on fire! I did amazingly well, until I got outside and realized I forgot to use my Target cartwheel. Yay. I am so awesome like that! So, go figure I could have save extra, I always forget something. Like stamps. I always forget stamps! 
Ok, there were some great deals and steals today in grocery land. I got the Heft on sale for $6.95 and used a coupon I had printed from my site for $1.25 off. $5.70 for the box minutes an additional 5% for having the Redcard debit. My milk(not shown) was free after two boxes of Raisin Bran with a coupon, I also had an Ibotta offer off a dollar back and a rebate from checkout51 for the same.I had some great Catalina's for my Gerber baby foods. The mouth was was on sale for $2.99 I had a $1.00 off Target coupon and I am sure I had an extra mouth wash coupon somewhere, but couldn't find it this morning. I had some left over Garnier Fructise coupons Valued at $2 each and got 4 bottles of the stuff for .99 cents each. The Mitchum deodorant was on sale for $2.67 a stick, I had a coupon worth $2 off. Each deodorant was .67 cents. The Secret was a stick for $2.47 and I had a coupon from the manufacturer for $2 off just for writing to them. The French's Mustard was an unadvertised deal,originally $5 Target had it on sale for $1.25 and I had a coupon for .75 cents off. Each bottle only cost .50 cents. Then the items I was most excited about(call me a dork) was the Iams cat food and the Windex. Ok so, Target has a coupon for $1.00 off the Windex touch ups . Then There is a printable  coupon for $1.00 off, this is a mfc. You combine two Target sc's and one mfc, with the mfc bogo coupon. The Windex is $3.49 in Fl, so you used the $3 worth of coupons and only have to pay ........ $.49 for TWO. Seriously, if you hung on to those Windex coupons from a couple of papers ago you too can be rolling in kitchen or bathroom cleaner. I love this deal! Ok then the next one is the cat food. Target has the small cans of Iams cat food on sale for $.59 a can. You can print an Iams coupon for $2 off three. I made $.23 off each set of three, which goes towards my other items.Neat right? I am giving them away to a friend as my cats don't eat them. I never just put things in my stock pile to just "look pretty". I also stocked up on coffee creamer for hubby. $3.98 for two there was a Target printout for $1 off two combine that with the mfc from last Sunday paper and it is only $1.75 for two creamers. Or $.87 (rounded) per creamer, if you like it that way.  Then there is the glade stuff. Yes, I am going to discuss it. Each one was  $2.99 total was $5.98 I had a coupon for $1.50 from Target. I also had a mfc of $1 off. Each set was $3.45 or  $1.74 each and yes there were Cw offers and Ibotta. *sobs quietly*  
I got the Alexia potatoes with a Target coupon and two mfc so $3 off of them making it $5.58 for both and there was a 25% off CW. Bahhh. Would have been $4.19, oh barnacles! 
Over all I spent $180 after coupons and Redcard it was only $70 (before tax) so  not bad. Not bad at all. You need to coupon. It only takes one transaction and you are hooked. Not only hooked but kicking yourself for not doing it sooner.

IKEA bookcase expedit

I made a decision to put together our ikea bookcase. One look at the Xbox games, DVDs, and books everywhere made up my mind for me. Here we go.  

It started like any ikea project. A book filled of picture directions and a lot of wood piles.
The figures there say not to do alone. I was not alone. I had help, lots of help.
See? Helping. He was inspecting each box with intensity and scrutiny. I am happy for that. Not alone.
I started to put things in order which box of pieces go where and had to guess which box had the tools. Tip:they are in box 2.
Once we got things situated and organized. Well, as organized as one with an 11 month old can be it was time to build. So, he with his hammer and I with my instruction booklet settled down for a long journey of building a cabinet. This by the way was an act of sheer boredom as well as organizational need.
Mom it goes like this, see?
He was a big help and had to crawl on every piece of furniture. Silly.
There we got it done. And we did it without help, it actually wasn't heavy . We put together the big entertainment center the next night. We are an awesome team!

Bronchulitis and ear infections.

My son was normalish this morning. He woke up at 6:30 am ate his bottle and snuggled with mama and daddy. Then he really started to pull on his ear. Ate small bits of breakfast, then broke into a pain filled cry. I immediately called the doctor. We saw the doctor who told us he had bronchulitis and an ear infection. Great times. He was given antibiotics and a medication for his bronchulotis. And now it is his bed time and he is not wanting to sleep. Meanwhile mama is still ill. But, I will be alright. For now I have to get my baby to sleep and comfort him when he needs. 

Me time? Take time for me?

While my hubby this morning was getting ready for work he mentioned something that has gotten my hamster wheel turning. "Take time for you." Followed by "you are the best mommy" take time for me? When is the last time I really took time for me? I mean really took me time. Sure 3 weeks ago I got my nails done, but  I was sitting there waiting for my phone to go off about the baby. Constant mom worry.  I enjoyed it but, was that the "me" time necessary for me to recharge? Probably not. I love being with my son, more than everything. But even god rested and me? Well let's just say there isn't any. Which is probably why and how I got sick. I blame the vacuum for this one. I cleaned it out Friday. And all this dust hit me. Then Sat, I used it to vacuum the floor and I didn't shut the container all the way. Anyways, he told me I need me time. I need to rest. Which is hard. I can not sit still, there is so much to do. Things to clean and a baby to pester. There is no me time. When I exercise I do it even when little man is up. I guess I need to figure something out. Perhaps a shopping trip alone at the mall is needed. Get my nails done and relax at the mall alone. Or call a friend and have her run with me. Sometimes, I hate being alone. Give daddy and boy a day to bond. What do you think?

Sick in bed with too much to do and take care of.

I hate being sick. I hate it when I am sick and still try to get things done around the house. My body is like "I am dying"and my mind is racing. I have so much housework to do. And a little man to take care of. It sucks being ill. When my son was napping I layer down for a few minutes but the. Had to get back up and get moving. Ugh. I am in so much sick achy pain, but the laundry won't do itself and neither will the bathrooms. I really hate this. Today's post will be brief. I just feel to icky to write much. Off to scrub a toilet.

Video game nostalgia : all this for a shotgun.

Hello everyone, I am still playing Tomb Raider, and I have died,gotten lost,figured out stuff, and remembered how to do certain things on the game. 
Killed my first dinosaur. Then I got eaten by a Trex. I screamed bloody murder and almost peed my pants when it came out of no where and nom nomed on Laura. 
It was a hard lesson, but I knew I could win the fight with a shotgun. So, off I went in search of it. 
I had to go all the way back to the beginning and then do a lot of careful jumps. After an hour or longer,if you include frustration time outs, I got to the fabled shot gun.
I also found this. Apparently it does something necessary to complete the level. You have to fin 3 cog wheels. Which actually aren't hard to find. I went back to take care of mr dinosaur. 
Booya! I gotcha! Mwahahahaha. I won! And killed him on the first try! With the four shots on the shotgun and a couple of shots from my pistols.
I placed the cogwheels in their spots. Then backtracked to the first lake and where the waterfall was I went through a cave. Level end. Whew.

Video game nostalgia ; tomb raider for iPad.

Still playing Tomb Raider, and I am having a great time. Other than the controls it is a great game to play on iPad.  I just wish I could remember where the shot gun is...more than likely I passed it up. 
Um I don't know why it is tilted. But here we are. The next level.

I love this game!
Well, I died. A lot here and it was not fun. I mean as funny as her deaths were it was annoying. 
How do I get past this?
You have to run and roll. That is how you get past here. You run and roll. Then at the end you pull a lever and fall.
Tricky tricky.
Once I made it past I cleared the level with no shotgun, but shells and oozie clips. Now, where are the guns?!

Video game nostalgia, Tomb Raider

Yes, she is back and old school. Last night I made the comment on Facebook during my boredom of "what would I do if tomb raider was on iPad ?" And so out of curiosity, I looked on App Store..there it was. The original game made for iPad! Shut up! I bought it, for $2.99 and dove into video game nostalgia. 
Here she is Laura Croft herself. Notice the control pad, very basic and yes can be hard to maneuver. People on App Store complained about the d-pad controls. Um analog was not available then. Sooooo, get over it. This is old school.
Save often!
Look. At these graphics! In its prime it was amazing! Hey coming from an 8bit world this was so advanced.
Damn wolves. Yes, I yelled. I remember some of what to do here. 

I killed bats. Grrr! I remember why I loved this game for so long. There was a female protagonist and yes, she had a "Disney " body, but she was a true ba. And among the first female ba main characters. It was refreshing to play her and revolutionary. Finally girls could relate somehow to a main character. Laura was our way in to the video game world. Spyro I would have to say was our second, although he was a boy, more girls played it than boys. From what I experienced. I mean pastel and colorful worlds, saving babies and freeing dragons? I didn't really know many guys that would break from Metal gear solid to play Spyro the dragon. But still Laura, set it in stone that girls can be gamers. Metroid started it, Laura finished it. (Not many people knew she was a girl in Metroid)

What is for dinner? Cereal.

Ever have one of those day, where the kids are miserable, nothing makes them happy, and things just are awful? I had that day. Our ac has been out for a couple of weeks and we have been fortunate that it has been cool here in Florida. But, for the past couple of days it has been mid eighties. And in a home where I can not open many windows, it is an issue. Can't open them due to damaged screens or missing screens. I have cats and fl has bugs. So we are here in this house. An ac repair man was supposed to call and come to fix it. My hubby tried to call him, there was no answer. He said he would be out today so what was the hold up. Finally my hubby gets a text, not a call, a TEXT. Who does that?  Who as a business would text to tell you they are canceling? They never answered the phone, and sent a text. Why? Cause they didn't want to hear my hubby get mad. He finally called hubby am she let him have it. My son and I sat in a hot house, my baby was miserable and uncomfortable. And I felt horrible for it, and I do not handle heat well. I am greatful it is cooling down finally, sorry to everyone stuck in snow. I feel for you and hope all is ok. But anyways, I made dinner to save money. Big mistake. I made horrible Alfredo and it was beyond nasty. I heated up my home for craptastic food. I was mad at me! My baby was hot, I was hot, we were drinking lots of ice water. He wouldn't nap all day cause of it and then that. Great. At least he ate. Hubby got home and I made him eat cereal. Dinner had been cancelled. Oscar the grouch can eat it now. 

T-Rex shirt, wrong info?

Today my baby got his new shirt, shorts and sandals from children's place. However, something is bugging me. Look at the shirt. It says trex, Jurassic. I hope they are referencing the movie Jurassic Park. If not they need to google trex and get the wiki on when it lived. It was the Cretaceous period, not Jurassic. Allosaurus lived in Jurassic. Wow, I just made myself a dinosaur snob....great. #laughitoff 
I know you are probably thinking, it is a kid's shirt. But here is the thing the size goes up to school age size. ...I will leave you with that. I hope it is the movie reference.
