Lost Domain Name and Other News

Well friends, it's been a while! I didn't check my blog email for months and the result is that I didn't see the email telling me my credit card on file was expired so my domain name would not be renewed. If I want to renew it now they are asking for lots of money so I'm not going to do it. In the mean time, please note that the address for this blog is now Family Life and Home That is .

Here is a trick I think you will love as much as I do. A local high end spa here in the valley does this for their clients in the good ole summer time. It's super easy too.

Checking In!

Hey everyone, yes I am still kickin'! I disappeared for a while; I kinda imploded. Not a pretty picture. I was burned out big time with blogging and I had to take a step back and take care of me a bit. My food allergies had become so intense I was getting desperate for help, life was miserable! I knew I would have to get serious and come up with some kind of a plan to get better and quick.

Minted; A Wonderful Online Shop: A Review

Disclosure: I have been compensated to write this review. However please know that the opinions given are 100% my own!

I have been ahead of the game so far with getting ready for Christmas! How about you? Pretty much all my shopping has been done online and I have to say it's the way to go. Especially if you are someone like me who doesn't like crowded stores, and wasting the time it takes to drive all over the place. Look at the gas you waste too!

Hold the shopping! You will want to see this before you buy another item on your Christmas list. You know someone who really needs this, will love it, and that person may be you! I'm talking about Click 'n Dig a Smart RF Item Finder. What's that? Well you know how you can't find the remote or your late getting out the door and can't find your keys? Well that won't be a problem anymore with this sweet gadget!

Revenge of the Cube Dweller; A Review

Disclosure: I received a free copy of Revenge Of The Cube Dweller for review purposes. Opinions are my own. The Amazon link is an Affiliate link.

I just finished reading Revenge Of The Cube Dweller by Joanne Fox Phillips. I really liked it. The main character, Tanzie Lewis, is a 50 something woman trying to get her life back on track. I found Tanzie to be very fun; shes creative and quick on her feet. She finds herself doing somethings shes never dream shes could or would do, be then realizes shes tapped into a new talent and perhaps a new life direction. 

I don't think we've seen the last of Tanzie and I look forward to her new adventures. This book received great reviews on Amazon and would be a great gift.

Wow Us Wednesday Link Party

Hi friends! I have made some changes; 2 actually. WUW link party is going away! Sadly yes! Click throughs are just not happening and with my time as limited as it is now I really don't see the point of continuing. I do still want to feature you though and in order to do that I have 2 new ways for you to get the word out about your blog post. 

Here's the first change;  I have created a group Pinterest board for you to Pin to instead of linking here on Wednesdays. Also I am going to try something I haven't seen done before; I'm going to try a perpetual link party page. You can link up there anytime you want. You will find a new page on my page bar above.  From these 2 places I will pull post that I like to feature on occasion or include in round ups. What do you think? Interested? Then read on......

I Just Had a Moment

Excuse me but I just had a moment; after a long day thats still not quite over, a moment of tears running down my face, crying uncontrollably for just the tiniest of moments. Oh don't misunderstand, they were tears of joy, tears of sheer gratitude and love and the realization once again of my many many blessings!

I sat down for a brief moment and started scrolling through the photos on my phone that I have taken over this last year. It has been a busy day, the big kids are out of school and my house is bursting with children. I love days like this one, the kids playing together so well. They laughed and had so much fun and squeezed every ounce out of every moment. Not that there weren't moments of disagreements and a few boo boos. But all the hard work of training them to be kind and polite to each other showed today. The really hard work of being patient while helping them work through being selfish and hard to get along with and instead learning how to share and be fair in play.
