    Granite Cleaner

    So, like most people with an internet connection, I have become addicted to Pinterest. I love the crafts, the home decorating ideas, and the environmentally friendly cleaners. As I run out of my normal cleaners I am replacing them with nice earth loving ones. I pinned this one for granite cleaners, which is from this blogger. I got to make it yesterday, I loved it! It worked so well! I used Sun soap cause that’s what I had. I didn’t have any scented oil and I guess I couldn’t miss what I didn’t know about but I really liked that there was no smell after I got done cleaning. There…

    Welcome Home

    I’m sitting here waiting for the bread to bake and watching the rescue of the Chilean miners live on CNN. 3 of the 33 are up now and I find it amazing.  I really think that sums it all up. It’s amazing that they lived in the collapsed mine for 69 days.  Amazing that they were able to be rescued and way sooner then expected, remember the estimate was they would be down there until Christmas and it isn’t even Halloween yet. Amazing that it is, so far, going so smoothly with 1 miner an hour. I’m so antsy and wish they could do it faster but I understand that…

    Eleven + 1

    I saw this on a fellow Spark People members blog today and I liked it. She said that it was part of a speech that Bill Gates gave but after looking at Snopes I found out that is was actually written by a man named Charles J Sykes and instead of 11 rules it was 14. So here are the 11 that I read from the other blog plus one of the three that is not normally printed but I liked it as well. Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it! Rule 2 : The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you…

    Easy(and cheap) way to clean the microwave

    A couple of weeks ago I noticed that our microwave was nasty dirty. I put cleaning it off another couple of weeks until yesterday when I decided it was time to just get it over with. I started scrubbing with a sponge and gunked the sponge up with what can only be described as sludge and scratched the paint off the door(not cool man). I was about to give up when I remembered something I had seen on How clean is your house – if you ever need motivation to get off your butt and clean this show will do it. Anyway, on there they said the easiest way to…

    Funny Friday

    Is it Friday already? This week has flown by.  Last week I posted a video of Mitch Hedberg and today I thought I would share another of my favorite comedians. This is Demetri Martin, I think he’s hilarious.  This video is long and it has some cussing. One of my favorites jokes starts around 4:40ish. Here are some of the funny things I stumbled upon this week. Having spent 2 years living in a dorm and being an awesome procrastinator I found this hilarious. How to write a paper in college/university: 1. Sit in a straight, comfortable chair in a well lit place in front of your computer. 2. Log…

    Updating

    I finally decided to bite the bullet and update my WordPress again.  They have already hit 2.8.3 so I figured it might be time.  I had a hell of a time moving from 2.7.whatever to 2.8.  My blog didn’t work for weeks and if it wouldn’t have been for importing to facebook I would have lost my posts since moving to wordpress (even though I exported my posts and thought I backed up before updating) I was so incredibly nervous I had butterflys and sweaty palms. This time I pulled out all the stops.  I exported my blog, and I backed it up 3 different ways.  Thankfully it appears everything…

    Funny Friday

    Here are some of the funny things that I Stumbled Upon this week. I came across a website the other day that had Mitch Hedberg jokes written out and cleaned up, neither is the way to see his jokes.  Really his comedy is all about delivery and I don’t think that can be conveyed in type.  He is the only comic that I’ve ever forked over the cash to see perform, Big Daddy and I both thought he was hilarious.  Sadly, about a year after we saw him he passed away of a drug overdose. And this not so much funny as kinda interesting.

    Michael Jackson

    When Michael Jackson died about a week and a half ago I wasn’t devastated, I was shocked and it seemed a little unreal but other than that it was life as normal.  There were no tears shed I called Big Daddy in disbelief and said “you will not believe who died today”. Like most people my age and older I grew up listening to Michael Jackson’s songs.  Some couldn’t keep you from dancing and some moved you more emotionally then physically.  One of my all time favorite songs though was “Human Nature”. I hadn’t planned on watching the memorial service, I didn’t even know that it was on until an…

    1 year

    Today, instead of celebrating the first birthday of beautiful Katarina, we mourned the one year anniversary of her death. At times it still seems unreal and it always seems unfair. It is amazing how one little girl, who we only got to meet through the kicks in her mommy’s tummy, has effected our lives. She no doubt would have been a spitfire like her older sisters and the character that she was named after. It saddens me that we never got to hold her, or shower her with our love. I know that she is being showered with love where she is at and that she will never know pain,…
