Clix-Fail, Swag-rockin', Update

Okay, just a quick update before I "commute" (log-in) for work today.

I've loved Clixsense for years. A few months ago DQ'ing from surveys became more common. Now, they've changed their payout schedule twice in just a few months. For the first time in years, I waited more than 24 hours for my payment to process. A week went by, had to actually send a ticket in to get it. I'm not "naying" them YET, but not spending much time there til it gets straightened out either.
On the other hand, Swagbucks has been pretty good to me lately with the only complaint being that there were no nCraves one day. It's been the most fruitful as of recently.

Work is good, passed my first big test, going to be taking calls today! (eek!)

Busy busy!

Wahmderful life it is. LOL

Fibro Days 1

Subtitle: Grander Plans

I totally had great big grand plans for the day.
I even wrote a to do list.
Five jelly beans for the first person to correctly guess the percentage of completion that list reached.

I slept too long. Yes, I whine about not getting enough sleep. Anyone with Fibro knows that too long means being in the bed too long and results in stiffness and soreness upon waking, however. Fun start! I managed to get breakfast cooked. Took me almost an hour and pancakes were a literal flop but we eventually had food on the table. Unfortunately, I'm still an emotional wreck with my feelings on my sleeves right now and well... more fun.

Once I got my big girl panties pulled up and my to do list done for the afternoon, I set about my plans. Halfway through walking through the store *ta da!* Sciatica! More fun. Embarrassingly I had to practically lay my boobs on the checkout counter and stretch my back out while waiting for my receipt I was hurting so bad. Real cute. I don't even wanna know how that looked.

I got to feeling a bit better once I got home and did some stretching and trying to "work it out" and got dinner cooked. Eh, not gonna try that recipe again. *unpinned!*

Time to walk the dog again. Note to self: at night, take a flashlight. Sidewalk is uneven. Shuffling feet make this dangerous. Tripped up and fell on bad knee. More fun! Luckily, it only hurt really bad for about fifteen minutes.

So here it is night. I already feel it being a "fibro night" but I'm trying to fight it off. Anxiety is gripping me and I'm just trying to shake it loose.

Glad I started making posts about my fibro feelings. Makes me feel a little better just getting it out. And nobody HAS to hear it or read it. You have to actually choose to come to this blog to see this, it's not in anyone's ears or newsfeed. If it comforts someone else to read that they weren't alone in their fight with fibro that day, it's here. If you don't like it, you don't have to see it. Yay! Win-win!

Good night and God bless.

It CAN be done.

Depression can really make a person feel hopeless.
It can seem like there's no break in the clouds.
No way it is ever going to be sunny again.

It can make a person feel like there's just no use in even trying.
No way they are even capable of doing the most basic and essential things.
Depression with Fibromyalgia can make that even darker.

The clouds do begin to lift, however.
You have to push them.
It isn't easy but...
It CAN be done.

Flares can make even getting out of bed,
getting dressed,
absolutely exhausting.

Flares can come to an end.

Flares can be fought.

It's a learning process for sure. A never ending one from what it appears.

A month ago I really didn't think it could be done.

I didn't think I could manage waking up and staying up for 18 hours straight without a migraine.
I didn't think I could manage doing laundry, cooking dinner, taking care of pets and working.
I didn't think I could manage more than two or three things on my to-do list.
I had decided I was kinda worthless.

I'm not worthless.

It CAN be done.

Fibro Nights 1

I'm sleepy and tired. I woke up with pain this morning (line of storms came through today) but pushed through and managed to complete about 80% of my to-do list. I need to get a good night's sleep because I will be in training for 8 hours tomorrow. I want sleep. There's no reason for me not to sleep. Oh, wait, yes. That's right. Fibromyalgia. Stupid Fibro!
Tonight the Fibro presents itself in shooting pain from my right hip down my leg, jaw tension, anxiety and general aches. The remedies of Norco, melatonin and self-massage aren't working. I'm hoping eventually I will just *crash*.
I've had two brownies tonight. Maybe I need to start monitoring my symptoms after chocolate. Not that I would ever give up chocolate but ya know, so I can expect it. LOL

P.S. I've decided to vent my FibroFrustrations on my blog in an attempt to whine a little less in real life. That way, if you don't wanna read it- click the X at the top right of your screen. Maybe a fellow FibroFighter will read it and know he or she isn't alone (as strange as it is I think it makes us feel better to know we aren't alone even though we wouldn't wish it on anyone). Or maybe someone who isn't sure why they feel the way they do will stumble across this and has never heard of Fibromyalgia and will become aware. Who knows. Why not?

Easy GPT #4 - Clixsense

Clixsense is a GPT that has been around for many years and is quite consistent with their payouts, offers and ways to earn. It's also not a "get rich fast" site, as none of the GPTs I have blogged about are. It's an "extras" money type deal. These are so easy though and you can do most of this stuff sitting in front of the tv unwinding or watching a movie with the family. It's not exactly passive income but it's close to it in my opinion.
There is a daily checklist that will help you earn, a forum for help and if you comment on this post needing help I will answer any questions to the best of my knowledge. I think of all the GPT sites I have tried over the years, this was the first one I used so I have been using it the longest.

Easy GPT #3 - Swagbucks

Swagbucks is my favorite GPT (Get Paid To) site. The interface is the most fun and engaging and makes you feel less like you are on a tedious task and more like you are enjoying some entertainment. In actuality you can be. The videos they feature actually have movie trailers, current celebrity news, workouts along with many more varieties of things you already are watching on youtube and other sources. You just aren't getting paid to watch them on other sites.
I always make sure I do the daily poll and daily NOSO first. I run NCrave videos while I'm doing other things and I watch a few playlists of things I enjoy. From time to time I spot an offer that I want. They also pay you SB's to shop (similar to ebates), offer surveys, games, etc. My favorite way to earn is still videos, however. Make sure if you plan to earn through videos mainly you download all of the video apps (, Entertainnow, etc)

With lots of promotions, special contests and fun ways to earn they are seriously the most engaging and fun way to earn.

Join with me!


Social media seems to be a melting pot of horribly scary news stories ( #prayersforParis , protests, riots, etc.), red cup opinions and thankfulness. Many of my friends are doing the trend of posting daily what they are thankful for. I've done it or variations of it in the past (many times, not seeing it through the whole month LOL) but opted out this month mostly due in fact to my goal of not being on Facebook quite as much as I used to.
I figured a blog post about thankfulness could do me some good though.
Just being totally candid I've struggled with thankfulness among other things lately due to loneliness and depression trying to steal my joy. When that cloud comes over, it tends to make the small things you were grateful for and truly enjoyed disappear a bit.
Don't get me wrong, I still have moments where I look at my princesses and feel so much pride and joy my heart feels it may burst. They truly are amazing and just seeing them lit up with a big smile is contagious. I have allowed my own internal struggles really cloud me up lately and it's a mess, however.
I'm starting this very moment to make a conscious effort to change that. I have been trying to fight my bad attitude that has resulted from the junk in my head for a week or two now but I'm really having a hard time with the battle. Maybe concentrating more on what I have to be thankful for will bring that joy back and fight the darkness off.
I'm just thinking out loud.
Thanks for listening.

ETA: I actually wrote this post yesterday morning before work. I didn't have time to post it so I saved it for later.
I think there's so much more I'm going to have to change aside from just being more grateful. I'm not the person I was two years ago, I'm more the person I was four years ago. Makes no sense to any readers that do not know me but anyone who knows me knows that isn't good.
That whole rewind post I did last week? Yeah, I gotta do that.
Prayers appreciated.

Rockin' and Rollin'

Starting my new WAHM job tomorrow!
I've been looking (apparently in all the wrong places, like a sad country song) for an actual employee position that would allow me to work from home for quite some time now. I finally found one that I could start with no experience and I'm even getting paid for training. I am so excited and can't wait to start. It's a customer care position, taking inbound calls only. Please pray I keep a noise-free and distraction free environment, lol.

I've been pinning crock pot and freezer meal ideas like crazy lately.
(See above reason) Even though I'll be home, this is a job with a pretty steady stream of calls I've been told so I won't be able to leave my desk except on breaks so I need to figure out how to feed the masses while I'm working. I welcome your ideas and recipes. (Comment!)

I think my big Fibro flare that lasted almost three months is starting to slowly ease up.
I'm having more "good days", "good hours" and less intensive pain. I haven't fallen in almost a month! I have had some set backs when I over exerted or got my nerves too amped up but I can actually see a tiny light at the end of the hall AND I think my "spoon allowance" has increased by a couple. I hope it stays on this track through the holidays at least so I can enjoy them with my family and be able to balance my new schedule and responsibilities well.

I found my new favorite cleaning tool!
Oh, I could sing of OxyClean's amazing-ness! I have bought the brand and the off brand and I like both. Cleaning the tub with it in place of Comet or bleach, using it as laundry booster and oh-em-gee the dog's collar! Let me tell you how nasty my dog's collar was looking and smelling. I soaked it for a little while and it looked almost new again. Yep. I like stuff like that.

I'm trying to post more on here and keep this up again.
People ask me often about what I do to get gift cards and the little bit of extra cash I get sometimes so I hope this can help another SAHM or WAHM or anyone needing it. Please share posts and links because you never know who might not know this stuff or be needing the little bit of extra. Helps with Christmas shopping and birthdays and stuff!

Easy GPT #2 - Bing Rewards

Bing Rewards is a simple and easy way to get a gift card for Amazon or if you have a Windows device or Xbox you can get credits for those as well.
I need to straight up say that my favorite search engine is Google and I don't see that changing but Bing is awesome for offering this incentive.
For this one you just create an account or use your existing MSN account and search! There's an app making it a bit easier to keep track of it all. It seriously only takes me about three minutes a day to make the 28-32 points on there I make (which comes out to basically 26-30 cents USD from what I can tell but I'm horrible at math so don't trust me on that!)
535 points gets you a $5 Amazon card.

Top Ten Things Worse Than A Red Starbucks Cup

You know what burns my buns more than the color of a cup?
A good bit. Why? Because I don't really care what color my Starbucks comes in on the very rare occasion I purchase a drink there. Honestly, I don't really care if they say Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays or even Bah Humbug to me when they hand it to me either.
Just because I say Merry Christmas to someone I don't expect them to say it back. Just because Starbucks has a solid cup instead of an intricately decorated one doesn't mean there is a huge conspiracy to attack us Christians behind it.

So, a top ten list is born!

Here are the top ten things that burn my buns more than Starbucks producing it's drinks in a red cup.

1. Liars, lies, loops of lies.
2. When pockets aren't cleaned out and there's suddenly gum or tons of paper in the laundry.
3. People are starving to death and you're upset that your five dollar coffee doesn't tell you Merry Christmas.
4. Doing dishes.
5. That some Christians can walk by someone needing help with their nose in the air but are upset about that cup.
6. Pharrell and Gwen haven't swapped seats on The Voice so Blake and Gwen can sit closer.
7. Breeders over breeding animals while others are dying in the pound.
8. My cat thinks my desk is a new playground.
9. Protests, wars, attacks, etc.
10. That my newsfeed has been a mess about cups lately.

Easy GPT #1 - Inbox Dollars

It's not going to make you rich. It's going to take just a few minutes of your day (while you're watching TV or waiting for the laundry to dry) and it's going to give you the cash that isn't in your budget to buy new mascara, or take your spouse to dinner, or even... new yoga pants! (I love yoga pants!)

This one is one that I don't spend a huge amount of time on but within a month or two with only a few minutes a day, four or five days a week I can get about $30 bucks from. Easy enough and one of the easiest to understand.

Rewind Just a Little.

Are you feeling like you're stuck?

I'm sure you've heard a million times in your life that "life has no rewind button" and while that may be true, it doesn't mean you can't hit a nice little pretend pause button and reflect on how you got the point you are at and back up a little. You can't take back things you've said or done but you might be able to back up to them and find some solutions that will either prevent them from happening again or right some of the damage caused.

There are a few inspirations behind this particular post. One being personal in my own life. I've realized I'm becoming more and more like the person I was before I went through a dramatic overhaul a few years back and that person is not a pleasant one. Can I change the way I've acted and things I have done? Nope. But I can back up! You can too. For humor's sake I'll clue you in to the other two inspirations behind me writing this post and I'm sure it will confirm your suspicions that I'm certifiably crazy: The TV show My Name is Earl and a line from a country song that states, "I'm living in fast forward... I need to rewind real slow."

Okay, now that the giggles are all out, I want to share some steps you can take (with me!) to back up.

1. Hit that nice little pretend pause button. Essentially, put yourself in time-out. Come on, especially you moms out there, you know the purpose of this is not so much as punishment but for reflection. Think about where you are, how you got there, what you have done and IF you are ready to back up and do some fixin'.

2. Once you've had a couple good "aha!" moments, start making a list. Yes, one of those lists. It can be on paper, in your phone, on your computer and it can be however it works for you but get these things out of your mental to-do list and on hard copy. It's just more "for real-real" that way. If you've hurt people, write their names down and what you've done. If you've become strapped in debt, write what you owe down. Get it all in front of you in black and white (or purple in pink if that's how you roll. Ain't no shame in using crayons for this!)

3. Find solutions. Look at what needs to be righted, what needs to be left alone, what's fixable and what isn't. Then put it in action. Ask for forgiveness only if you are genuinely sorry. If you ain't sorry you might need to back up to step 1 again. Find ways to make debts more manageable. Find time to work on your emotional health.

4. REMIND YOURSELF not to "go there" again. I mean, chances are, you will. We're all human and we fail daily. Buncha losers we can be. However, be it a poster, a picture, a daily alarm or even an accountability partner it is just so much easier to stay on track when you've got something reminding you daily to make the right choices.

Top Ten Things You Get Done When You're Trying to Sleep.

Do you get more done (mentally, of course) in an hour of trying to go to sleep at night than you do in an entire day? I do!
I think I've completely mapped out a week in my head during one particularly rough night of insomnia.
Just for giggles, here's a top ten list of things that get done mentally during those "counting sheep chores" nights.

1. Grocery list. You'll totally forget it by the time you sit down with a pen though.

2. Dishes. Oh, the sparkling clean sink you won't wake up to.

3. Laundry. It's folded and put away and every hamper is empty. NOT!

4. Cool hair styles for you or the kids. Or ya know, bed head from tossing and turning.

5. Gourmet meals. Swapped for frozen pizza since you can't keep your eyes open to read a recipe.

6. Ultimate Get-Rich-Live-Big Plans. You're NOT going to start a savings account the next morning. Admit it.

7. Remodeling or redecorating. Sounds like a great idea and you've become a pro (in your mind) by now.

8. Toy organization/playroom sweep. Just try it. I dare you.

9. Outfit planning. Yoga pants it is.

10. Blogging. Ha! Oh, the blogs I have wrote out in la-la-land somewhere.

Have I left out one of the top things you get "done" when you're counting sheep chores? Comment and share!

Revamping and Remodeling

As I'm contemplating this comeback and deciding what to aim for and how to change a few things around to better suit my focus and my goals for the blog, I'm just leaving this here to let any visitors know that changes are happening. This is so true for my life, too. ;)

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Getting back off the rocker.

Almost five months since I started giving up again.
Frustration, fibromyalgia flare ups, depression and lots of changes got in the way of a vision I had and goals I had set. It's an excuse I shouldn't even be giving though because the truth is, I just gave up a little. It isn't fair to myself to do that and even more unfair to my family.
I'm sure I'm not the only one that happens to so I'm hoping my tiny little group of readers will understand and return to visit my blog again as I try to re-kickstart everything back up.
I'm back.

Stuff I Read and Liked v.2

I'm waiting for clothes to finish in the dryer and letting videos play on my devices while the Atlanta Hawks kick butt have me biting my nails. So, I thought I'd check my Bloglovin' subscriptions, browse around, share some of what I read and liked. ;)

Runs for Cookies shares what habit changes she made to lose weight. I need to pay attention to this. I've had success by changing habits here and there before, I can do it again!

A Cup of Jo shares a delicious looking recipe for a Strawberry and Spinach Salad. I was like, "no thanks" at first but, seriously, just go look at it. You'll probably change your mind just like I did. I'm fighting the urge to go to the grocery store right this minute.

Cupcakes and Cashmere shares 9 links she loves from around the web. I did the name thing. Ava would be what my parents would have named me in this day and time. Which is very funny because I love that name and had it as a "wish" name for a "not happening future kiddo" once upon a time.

I hope you enjoy those few quick reads as much as I did. One way you could enjoy them more is with a little pampering. *wink wink*

WAHM Wednesday - WHILE

Today is tween's birthday. It was also her field day and little's honor's day. I was able to attend both. Now, I'm sitting beside tween on the couch watching a movie WHILE I work online. Granted, I'm not making what some of you ladies are out there making in conventional careers, I'm on a roll today with some surveys. I should be able to at the least make thirty to forty bucks today. WHILE I watch tv. WHILE I enjoy time with my family. That's good stuff right there.
Right now I have one program (I will be highlighting that one next week) running on my tablet, SBTV playing on my phone (learn about that here) and getting ready to do more surveys and clicks on Clixsense (more on that here).

Top Ten Reasons - I Love The Healer Stick!

So, once again, I will remind you that I am a Perfectly Posh Independent Consultant but only because I truly love the products. I was a satisfied thrilled customer first. One of the first products I got was a Healer Stick. This little baby rocks!

1. I have had a rash on the under side of my lower arms and elbows for years. Multiple diagnosis' and multiple prescriptions given, none worked. Much money spent on OTC lotions and creams, again, none worked. THIS works! I honestly believe it's due to it being non-clogging and just all around wonderful.
2. Totally made an oops and got sunburned. This was so much more soothing on my burn than aloe has ever been. I'm healing faster, too!
3. I have puppies. They have little claws. They love to jump on us. A swipe of this over scratches stops any irritation or itch and heals the scratch very quickly.
4. Papercut, take THIS! 
5. I have a one year old scar going all the way down my torso from an emergency gallbladder removal. In just a few weeks, it's lightened from a dark purple to a pale pink scar. I'm going to continue usage on it as I've seen it nearly fade scars completely on people!
6. I'm a mom, I have my tiger stripes. Similar to reason number 5, they itch sometimes and are a dark purple. Mine are eleven years old and aren't fading very quickly, but in only a couple weeks, I'm noticing some fading AND they no longer itch!
7. I have no reservations about slathering myself or my kiddos in this. It's natural based, duh.
8. Seriously, ANY dry or itchy spot... begone!
9. It's AFFORDABLE! It's a large size stick (think twice the width and much taller than a chapstick) for only $13... that's TOTALLY doable!
10. It's versatile and because of all those reasons above, it's a go-to item in my household. It really is a little healer. Fixes SO many things! I have even used it to tame a few fly-away hairs in a pinch!

You can get YOUR Healer Stick here. (until December 2015)

WAHM Wednesday - Swagbucks

I've been using Swagbucks for years. It's great especially around the holidays to earn extra money in your paypal or for gift cards to purchase gifts with. Some make more by shopping through their affiliate links and participating in offers but I just do a few free offers, surveys occasionally and watch videos.

Join Swagbucks and if you need any help, let me know.

Stuff I Read and Liked v.1

Though I'm generally off my rocker, sometimes I get back on my rocker and do some reading. I'm finding some blogs I enjoy following and found a few posts that inspired me this weekend.

1. It Sux To Be Fat - Summer is Coming!
    Jennifer totally terrified scared shocked floored me when I read past her first happy paragraph about a happy mother's day and onto her realization that *gasp* summer is almost upon us. Nooo. Not yet!! I'm not ready! *pouts* So, she highlighted a pretty cool game/program that I'm considering checking out as motivation to get my booty in gear.

2. gh0st parties - A Sunday Well Spent
    Just go look at her makeup organization. Jealous? YES! Motivated? OH YES! Maybe I will in turn have a Monday well spent. I need to organize my makeup like, last year.

3. Into The Gloss - How Do You Deal With Anxiety?
    Because I love when people openly discuss the reality of anxiety whether it's on a large, earthquake scale or on a "where'd I sit my keys?" scale. The comments are a good read also.

So, that's what got me tonight as I read through my Bloglovin' follows. Got something that inspired you? Share it in the comments. I wanna read it, too!

Today was a good day.

It truly was. Nothing over-the-top, spectacular, crazy happened but it was grand. Simple. Church, lunch with my folks, 90's music with the windows down with my tweenie, dinner with my guy and my little, relaxing and watching a movie and now, catching up online after a weekend of trying to stay a little unplugged.
I love simple days filled with heart smiles and the best little moments like that.
I hope everyone had a great day as well.

Too Cute For Words (But I Will Try!) Citrus Lane

Okay, so I don't want to get too over share-y of products but I can't resist this one. Most of their stuff is too "young" for my little and my tweenie, but I'm super tempted to go ahead and consider getting the cute tea apron for little or maybe the housekeeping set to encourage both girls to clean up their playroom (yeah, right!)
It appears you can get a subscription box or just order specific items.

Ten Favorite Uses for Coconut Oil- Posh Life!

My introduction to coconut oil has been through skin care only thus far. It's very versatile in that category alone! I LOVE my Posh Life Coconut Oil. Yes, I am a Perfectly Posh Independent Consultant, but I don't have to shout to the masses how much I LOVE it if I don't really. I'm never going to tell anyone I like something if I don't. This is a more solid oil that melts as you rub it in. It smells delightful.

  1. Dry Ends- I like to rub a little into my fingers then lightly go through the ends of my hair to give a softer look. I color my hair regularly, so the ends often look brittle or dry. 
  2. Eye Makeup Remover- It really breaks up my mascara and moisturizes my sensitive skin as I gently rub in light circles around my (closed!) eyes. I usually do this before cleansing and masking.
  3. Dry Scalp- I get dry and occaisionally itchy patches on top of my scalp and a little dab of this helps a ton!
  4. Stretch Marks- Some have had the luck after long term uses to have their marks actually begin to fade, but I use another product that is helping with that more. However, they itch sometimes, more than my other skin. This fixes that in a jiffy. AND makes me smell good. DOUBLE WIN!
  5. Dishwater Hands- I'll use a little on my hands before washing dishes to prevent so much damage from occuring then follow with The Healer Stick and some Big Fat Yummy Hand Cream or Skindelicious after I am done to look like those gals with automatic dishwashers.
  6. Ashy Legs Begone!- Nothing makes my skin (and tattoos!) glow like a layer of this after a shower. Ooooh! Shiny! 
  7. Purse Conditioner- Use this at your own risk. I tried it on a small bag and it made the leather shine like new and smell amazing too! Because your purse deserves pampering, too.
  8. Frizz and Fly Aways- A little goes a long way is definitely the key here. Seriously. Just a touch on your finger rubbed into your hands then use your hands to smooth down your hair. Once more, it'll make you smell amazing as well. :)
  9. Nighttime Rubdown- Massage time! Even if ya gotta massage yourself. The Skin Vixen Dry Oil is great for this too. My skin stays ridiculously dry and this packs a little more of the hydrating punch I need.
  10. Smelling Good- Did I mention how great this particular oil smells? Oh. Only three times? Well, here's the fourth. Just to make a point of it. It's not overpowering but it is a noticeable fresh and delightful scent.
If you think you might want to try it (you do, you know you do!) I'm going to insert some shameless self-plugging here and give you my link. Feel free to comment any questions you may have!

WAHM Wednesday - Clixsense

I use a few different PTC (paid-to-click) sites to generate a few extra pennies from time to time. Clixsense has been a no-brainer go-to for me. They've never failed to pay me. Unlike many others, there are several opportunities to earn without doing those risky "free" trials and it's a user-friendly site.

Above, you will see a screenshot of my account summary. There were probably three 3-7 month periods that I did NOTHING on here, so that's why it shows I've been a member for so long but have a low lifetime earnings. The list you see on the right hand side is key to earning the most on this site, and also helps you navigate easier. I will personally help you as much as I can with getting started on there if you are interested. Just shoot me a message in the comments. My referral link is if you'd be so kind as to allow me to be your referrer.

Happy National Orange Juice Day!

Apparently, May 4th is National Orange Juice Day. There's a day for everything, I suppose. I looked at a list of random food holidays and even saw Chocolate Custard Day. Seriously? However, I do love me some OJ from time to time, so I may have to celebrate this one.

In most cases, a glass of typical store bought orange juice is gonna have about the same sugar as that soda you're craving and you'll get more nutrients actually EATING an orange, so I wouldn't boast of it's healthiness exactly. I've read before that when you juice an orange instead of eating it you still get some of the vitamins but miss out on some of the fibers and other nutrients. I don't care too much for eating them myself (yuck, strings in my teeth!) but I will from time to time.
For yumminess reasons though, when I drink a glass of OJ I usually grab one that's got other flavors or juices added like, mango or banana. 
Anyways, I guess it's like everything else seems to be... moderation is key? LOL
Drink up! Happy OJ Day ya'll!

She's Setting Goals - May 2015

New habit I'm going to start incorporating and now that I'm blogging again, maybe it will help remind me to stay motivated and stick to it.

(May contain affiliate linkage.)

1. Meet my 15 day and 30 day goals with Posh.
2. Lose 10 lbs.
3. Go fishing.
4. Make sure my kid has a great birthday.
5. Reorganize clothes and closets.

That's reachable. 
What are your goals?

She's off her rocker? What's that about?

It caught your attention, though, didn't it? Otherwise you would be staring at some other page on your screen. 
Basically, it's a saying I've heard all my life referring, in a slightly humorous and southern way, that a woman had gone mad. Bonkers. Slap silly.
I'll tell you a little secret I learned from both life experience and from the treasured adventures of Alice in Wonderland... all the best people ARE off their rockers.
It also fits into my life as a stay-at-home mom/work-at-home mom. Some think we just sit on our boo-hineys all day eating candy and watching soaps. Ha! Okay. Watch me.
So I'm off my rocker. I have a voice and I intend on letting it roar.
