Grits

Grits are such a good and easy and inexpensive way to eat breakfast. Add some yummy eggs with a little bit of cheese and you are good to go. Or you can eat grits plain with a little bit of butter and salt and pepper. Some people even eat them with a tiny bit of sugar. However you like them they seem to fill you up and hold you over until your next meal. I like them best with butter and salt and pepper. It’s great to hold you over especially when you’re at an appointment like when I went to get free money for college and waited for what seemed like forever and didn’t know how long it would be until you are able to have lunch.

Gym

It feels so much better when I go to the gym. Sometimes I get really busy with work or school and get out of that routine, but then I also feel it. I’m much more tired and have less energy than when we go to the gym. I noticed that once I get back into the routine, it doesn’t take much to get used to it and it seems to get easier and easier to do. Not to mention, I’m starting to see the results, my clothes are fitting much better now.  This is as easy as easy scholarships to apply for, you just do it until it becomes easy.

Washing Machine

I am so glad to have a washing machine and a dryer in our new home. We came from a place where you had to either walk or drive your laundry to get washed. What a pain that was. I don’t think I even realized how much of a burden that was until I have one conveniently in our home.

I get things done so much more and more often and I don’t have to carry loads of wash back and forth, or deal with others messes. You almost need an anatomy and physiology study guide to figure out what goes with what with their messes.  I’m glad that’s over with.  Good stuff.

Vet

We are taking our puppy to the vet for the second time in his life. He saw a vet prior to living with us, it was probably a vet at the rescue that we got him at. He will be getting some more shots today and probably won’t like us very much after wards. We’re hoping he’ll forget quickly unlike when you take a child to get their shots, boy do they remember, and they don’t ever forget. Come to think of it, I’m sure I haven’t forgotten those experiences either.

One of the only experiences I wouldn’t want to forget is how I earned grants for single mothers. Now that’s something I am thankful for. Shots, not so much.

Friday

I am so excited that it’s Friday! It’s always nice to semi-relax on the Weekend after a long week of work at the credit card consolidation loans company and meetings and appointments and whatever else you have going on. It gives you a chance to unwind and relax and just get rid of the worries from the week. Not that we should have worries, but just a chance to reset. I’m not sure if we are going to do much this weekend, possibly just sit around and do nothing. Maybe watch a movie, eat some popcorn, make it a down day.

If I could do anything…

If you have not watched this video, it is absolutely hilarious! I remember watching Sesame Street a loooong time ago. I used to watch this show for hours on end. I also like to watch other shows on Nickolodean. I remember the green slime. If you have not seen this, then take a look at the video below. It is so funny to see this. When I was in school, I watched this show so often that when I was doing things, I thought that I was going to be slimed.

If you remember, then Ghostbusters came out then the green slime from the main character.

Sometimes when I read anything on an anatomy and physiology study guide, I feel like I have been slimed too!

The Little Things!

We are so very proud of our daughter, she is currently doing her schooling online at home. We are using the public curriculum which makes it a little easier for us as we work at home and don’t have an entire day to go over the curriculum ourselves. It is such a great thing that they offer to parents now a days, not like in times past where the mother sat at home and wrote her own curriculum.

It makes it much easier for all involved, especially when they get to the reading stage and they can start reading their assignments on their own. She is doing fabulously and is above the 90 percentile in her class. We are so excited for more things to come. I am hoping that if we can teach her better things, then she will not need consolidation loans for people with bad credit in the future. At least we hope.

Do We?

There are a lot of things that I really care about and one of things is people. I think that if we had more groups each year that helped people get on their feet, then we would have a very strong nation. That, and when we include churches and more organizations that are focused on getting people from point a to point b, then we may find ourselves in a better situation. But will we make a difference in everyone. Well, the story goes of a kid who said that he wanted to through all of the star fish in the water that washed up on shore and one person asked him how he would ever be able to make a difference, and upon hearing this. the boy said picked up a star fish and threw it into the ocean and said that he was able to make a positive difference in that one! I think that is wonderful and even when people try to apply for quick scholarships at my school and they try to write about different subjects, the people that we help, even if it is just one, we CAN make a difference!
