Still Working on Getting Back on Track Here, Slowly but Surely

I am trying to work but in all honesty this coming Wednesday will be the first day I have no kids all day without any other obligations. I had a day or so when I had no kids before but there was no way to unpack as Comcast had to come to get internet working in my master bedroom where my office is setup. My office setup is not like in my previous house as it’s an extension of the master bedroom, meaning part of the master bedroom has been set aside for me to work from, but I am thankful to have a place that is not in the main area of the home.

I will be able to focus and shut a door if need be to surround myself with just my laptop and work. Eventually I will have my ex husband build me a custom computer for my office but for now I work strictly from the laptop as it’s the only working PC I have that can handle all that I do for work.

Hoping to get back on track and share so many awesome pictures of our times with the move and our adventure in York Beach, Maine as well as other family adventures we go on soon! Have a beautiful evening my friends!

Looking for Rental Can Be Overwhelming

I am in the market to find a rental home. I want 3 or 4 bedrooms obviously and this is proving to be the most impossible task ever. If I do reach someone who has a home rental with the right size for the family, then it has already been contracted to be rented by the time the person calls me back. If I do finally reach a person and they are agreeable to letting me come view the property, I can never seem to really touch base with them again to make this appointment.

I am frustrated beyond belief because I am suppose to have a place lined up by warm weather, not for any bad reason but simply because the home I am in now is no longer available sometime around Summer. I have lived here a year and a half and enjoyed the memories but it’s time to make new memories.

I really just wish it was a lot easier. It seems Craigslist does not have much for my town, and I cannot switch the kids school district. Here I am trying to find a rental home and I know I will eventually start seeing more rentals opening as warmer weather comes but in the mean time I am wondering how much more I really need put on my plate at this moment in time. I pick up newspapers so frequently that I could nearly have a huge bonfire with the amount of newspapers I have collected.

They say God does not give you more than you can handle, well I tell you what, He has a lot of faith in me, I swear! But then again I do in Him as well. A rental home that is perfect for my family shall come when I least expect it. I just hope it’s this most recent one I have been trying to connect with, because it’s a beautiful location, perfect size and not too far from where I reside now.

Speak Up – No Mas, Change the World one Voice at a Time

What subject matter are you passionate about? Is there something that happens in this world that you just feel like being the voice of reason for? Do you believe in the Freedom of Speech and utilize it to try to spread awareness about a topic you believe in? That is what this No Mas campaign is all about,

No mas oppression! No mas censorship! No mas silence! Change can start with two simple words…”No mas!” What do you say, “No Mas” to?  Create your own personalized No Mas badge and share it with your community.

Note: Not all badges need to be serious! Have fun with them and encourage your community to do the same. (Ex: “No Mas Meanies,” “No Mas Crying Babies,” “No Mas Burnt Toast,” etc.)

Meanies are something I can say No Mas to, having three school aged children it is often that I hear this story of a kid calling my kid slow, even crippled to the other, and then there are times where kids are just meanies as in they tell my son he is not allowed to play with certain groups of people. Thankfully my kids are pretty strong, independent little people because otherwise they would not know how to properly ignore or handle these meanies. With that being said I certainly think that saying No Mas to meanies is my passionate topic I want to reach out and support the battle against!

Hawaii Vacation Rentals Waipouli Beach Resort

Hawaii, oh Hawaii, how I want to visit thee. My feet in the sand, the warm sun beating down on my skin. The warmth and friendliness of locals. Oh I wish I could visit Hawaii soon for a mini vacation, after all it is the place I wish to marry the man of my dreams at some day.

There is a place in the pacific ocean area called Hawaii, in that area, right? I am horrible with geography, but it appears the sandy beach pictured above at the Waipouli Beach Resort is near the Pacific Ocean, an ocean I have never seen. Summer may be near over, but that doesn’t mean your Summer traveling days are over. Why not take one last trip and make it count, Hawaii is calling.

The Waipouli Beach Resort looks like a pretty nifty place to stay based on their website http://www.summitpacificinc.com/WaipouliBeachResort/, waterfalls, water slides, a spa and fitness center, oh my! What a wonderful place to check out when looking into staying in Hawaii. It amazes me how sweet those who I have run into online that live in Hawaii are, maybe it’s the sunshine that makes them so super sweet and happy? Whatever it is, I want me some and some day I will get married in Hawaii amongst the beautiful sandy beaches and pretty blue ocean water.

Retail Me Not is a Lifesaver!

After a ton of searching on my hughes net internet, I finally found a site that can deliver coupons for anything I buy online. RetailMenot.com has discount codes for all of your favorite websites and range from electronics, foods, clothing, to anything you can think of. This month alone, I have saved over 200 dollars on what I usually allocate to my internet purchases. I have also been able to keep from having to scour the internet for places to find discounts, wasting countless hours of my hard-to-come-by time. It is extremely easy to find codes and coupons and print them off for later use in store or for record. RetailMeNot.com has users that are constantly uploading new discount codes and coupons that were once only reserved for specific customers. I have not found a better way to save time and money in years, especially with the way the economy has declined. In addition to supplying you with codes and coupons, RetailMeNot.com also has user reviews of the discounts. These let you know the success rate and validity of the discounts. One of the most alluring aspects of the site is its constant renewal of information, keeping you up to date on coupons that are available to you. I really find it hard to believe that they offer this service without any kind of membership fee. All I had to do, was log on to www.retailmenot.com and enter the type of business that I wanted discounts for. After clicking search, you are given a whole list of choices of goods and services. I just picked the ones I was looking for using my Hughesnet Internet, and was instantly taken to a page that featured instant coupons and discount codes ranging from 5 to 25% off. Do yourself a favor and check them out too.
