*Above picture was taken by me in the dreaded winter. My daughter Buppy is in the stroller all covered up nice and warm. I'm in the elements facing the COLD. I'm so GLAD it's summer, AREN'T YOU?*
*AHEM* I have something very important to say. I found some VERY cool blogs just now. So I'm sharing the linky love and telling ALL you about it. YOU probably already know about it. Since I'm new around here and all. But if you haven't heard about DON MILLS DIVA OR The Secret is in the sauce! PLEASE go there now.
(Well at least finish my blog entry first cause HEY that's rude if you don't come back.) :)
WOW! First I want to talk a little about WHY I blog. Well first I'm a writer. It's natural for me to want to write to the world and let everyone know I exist. Someday one of my novels will be published and then the world will know. Until then I am quite satisfied with blogging. (I am writing a novel too. Don't get me wrong.)
Reason #2 why I blog. I blog to make new friends and keep in touch with the friends I already have. It's just such an awesome outlet for friendship.
Reason # 3 why I blog. I am a SAHM. I have three daughters. I try and keep my house clean and make fabulous dinners and keep up with ALL of you. But somehow I fall short. I'm not perfect. And when I read my dashboard for new updates on blogs I find ALL of you who are also NOT perfect but striving for perfection. And what makes you all even more clever is that you are funny!!!
Reason #4 I have a webcam. One of these days I'll vlog so everyone can see I'm a real person just like ALL of you. But for now, I'll keep my anonymity---well somewhat.
Reason #5 It's fun and i LIKE it! 'nuff said.
Well the children are bugging me again and I need to check on the laundry and get back to the packing. (I'm headed to visit the family in PA in VA for the next 2 weeks--in case you hadn't heard.) Oh YEAH I'm excited about that one for sure.
**Also Please HELP ME! I have tried to make the 3 column template for my blog. I have clicked on help. It is NOT working. Please I am asking my fellow bloggers for help. Will you please help me?* MY email is firstname.lastname@example.org OR just leave a comment---I'll get your help answers. I am running out of room for ALL the cute buttons I want to display. So please hurry. Time is a wasting!**
*Just a quick note, Motherboard is NOT stopping at 200 comments for her sweet I pod giveaway! So what are you waiting for? After you finish my sweet blog entry, go on over and enter. You could win. You will never win anything if you don't enter. :)
Motherboard should be so happy now! She has 200 comments on her giveaway!! If you ALL haven't checked out her blog you should. She is insanely funny and she ALWAYS makes me laugh. She is giving away an I pod for her birthday. She talked about how she needed just 7 more comments until 200---"Come on people" she said, enter already. I'm not sure if she was stopping at Comment 200 or not. But even if she was she is an awfully cool lady to get to know. I can't wait until a blogger lunch or something...I really want to meet this gal. She is AWESOME! Anyway if you haven't heard about this AMAZING giveaway, please enter. And if she was stopping at comment 200, I'm sorry. (I think I left a comment on comment 200.) She gives away things ALL the time though. Follow her so you will be able to enter next time okay? CLICK HERE FOR THE IPOD GIVEAWAY OR JUST CLICK HERE TO CHECK OUT ONE AMAZING GAL!
Okay. My toddler needs me now. And YES I haven't forgotten that I entered that giveaway to give homemade items to you all. If you all will just be patient I'll get on that in July, August. I DO have until the end of the year though. Mom with a herd, Mother Goose, and WHO ALL entered again? If y'all don't respond, I'll just check my blog entry again. THANKS!!!!!
When I blog again, I might be on the East Coast! YEAH for vacations!!!!

Ever feel like the above picture? That's how I felt a couple of Fridays ago. Things are looking better for me though, Thank goodness!!!
Yeah,Yeah. It's me. Yeah. You remember? You started following me about a week ago figuring I would update often. Well, I'm back. I've been busy. First things first, Did you hear my hubby got a job?? YAHOO! But wait, don't get too excited. When he got hired, they told him he was in a trial period for 90 days. Well, the owner told the service manager MY husband just wasn't working out. They cut him some checks...(decent ones I might add) and off Daniel went. The first day I heard about it, I balled like a baby. EVERYTHING made me cry. I'm better now. Finding a decent paying job is just going to take some time I guess. We'll find something. Don't you worry about us. I have learned that my life is in the Lord's hands. He knows me. He hears my prayers. He loves me.
Next update. We are preparing for VACATION! YIPPEE!!! My dad got us tickets to Pennsylvania. (He is from Philly.) The only drawback is we are all not on one flight. See we used to be. Then Daniel decided to stay home because he had this great job. So my dad refunded the tickets. Then since they let him go, he is free again. My dad being the nice dad that he is, bought him another ticket. WOW! The good news is that our tickets are about 15 minutes from each other. Not bad really. But guess who has the kids? Yup. You are correct. You are reading her blog. That would be ME! I'll survive. Don't you worry. I will have LOTS of fun things to do in 4 and a half hours. LOTS of things. . .
Next update: Remember when Mommy Mormon blogs had this swell giveaway for concert tickets?? Yeah, you remember? Marvin Goldstein? I won the tickets! I went June 6th with my hubby, it was FABULOUS! I am so glad I went. Just wish I had like 500 dollars to buy all the CD's from all the artists. WOW! What a group of talented people Marvin has worked with. Google Marvin. You won't regret it I'm sure.
So that's what I have been up to. I'm still around. Hanging out in the blog world AND Facebook of course. Drop me a line. Let me know you still exist too. I know,it's summer and the kids are home. Give them a popsicle to keep them occupied. Then join me in Blogland. I'll be seeing you!
What have you been doing lately my friend???
