Happy Weekend

Hi Everyone, Sorry it is taken me so long to get back with you.  It has been a little crazy around here with the weekend and extra stress and all.  

Well my husband has not lost his job yet but there is rumors going around (that he is heard from other employees) they are thinking about letting a few people go and replacing them with cheaper contracted people.  This is not fair at all.  So yea that a rumor and Hubby is worried so he is still putting in applications now just in case.  Other than that, things have been okay.

I did have issues again for the sixth time with my T-Mobile Moto blur Cliq cell Touch Screen Phone.  I was so tired of the issues and waiting for them to send me a new one repeatedly so I just went ahead and upgraded to another phone.  (Actually, I feel like I downgraded to be honest)  I got a BlackBerry Curve White 8520 it’s a pretty phone don’t get me wrong But it’s just so plastic it sort of reminds me of my child’s toy phone but eh I guess I’ll get used to it after a while.  However, it is pretty.

So let us see then today Hubby was off work and I cooked Steaks for everyone (that cost me a lot) but it was worth it.  We had Mac-n-Cheese & Green beans with Turkey Bacon (we do not eat pork) and seasonings and we had an ice-cream party after.  With a whole lotta ice cream and sprinkles, Cherry’s, Nuts & THE WORKS.  It was great. 

We are letting the kids stay up a little tonight to watch a movie and play video games and then Right to bed we go.  Well the smallest already fell asleep about nine so jus the older ones are awake still but its okay it is the weekend.  Well anyways just wanting to drop in to post and I hope you and your family are having a wonderful weekend.

Bad Few Days

Hi, everyone sorry I have not written in a few days.  It has been sort of going not so good around here lately.  My Husband maybe being laid off work (Praying he will not) but it does not look good.  They are finding anyways to get rid of people to cut back on pay and jobs. 
They want to get rid of my husband because his raise is coming up and instead of paying him more; they want to pay the maintenance person to do the floor for the same price they are paying him now.  Therefore, that is good for the other person but bad for my person.  My husband was so upset and thought it was very unfair then they wanted him to sign a paper and he refused he said he needed time to read the paper and they said no if you don’t sign it now we will suspended you for 2 days and that’s what they did. 

THEREFORE, we are worried he will not have a job by tomorrow when he goes back to work.  (Sigh)  I am very scared because I so do not want him to be without a job with our big family and bills.  So in-between that I have been job hunting and being rejected from left to right.  I even applied at Macy’s and they said they did not have any positions for my skills and experience.  Therefore, I am much bummed that I cannot even get a simple job.  Either I am to under qualified or I am over qualified.  I do not know what else to do.  I am trying to find something as a backup in case he is let go.  So yea, that has been my life the last few days.  It has been so terrible.

CHAOS On Labor Day...

As if today can get any, worse…yes I said worse…what is worse?  My Kids not being in school and my quiet time during the week has been lost in the midst of loud noises of boy’s rowdiness.  (The Love of motherhood).  Despite wanting to pull my hair out at this point, do to boys jumping around, screaming and playing Army soldiers.  I am finding my solitude in my blog.  Yes, I love blogging it is the only piece of mind I can get and actually, the ONLY thing I can seem to talk to at this point.  The only thing close to a human.  (Wait brb Joshua is fussing)….geez Gabriel is tormenting poor Joshua.  Why do brothers just love to tease their little brothers for entertainment purposes?  I have no idea.  See I am an only child and it is so hard for me to understand why siblings do what they do.

Anyway, yes today is Labor Day.  Not a Fun day for me at all...  (Wait Sebastian is calling brb).  This never ends anyway, I was trying to decide what the children and I were going to do today, but it looks like it is going to rain so no a lot of outside activities today.  I was actually unprepared for this school holiday.
 I actually remembered they did not have school today after waking up at five and turning off my alarm clock.  Talk about Bummed.  I did not even get to sleep in after I turned the alarm off.  Four of the six children where awake and I mean fully awake and I had to drag my poor sleepy butt outta bed and attend to them all morning just to energize them with breakfast and lunch.  Fun Fun.
Don’t you just wish there was like this off switch you can just turn kids off.  Or better yet a program where you can program them to be such sweet children who do not yell, argue and sit there and be nice to each other?  Oh yea well outta my dream world Heather.  So yea, that has been my day.  Wild, Bored children with no life but to drive their mother crazy.  Fun Fun.  Next time I need to be more prepared for the No School Days home alone with the kids. Ok things are quiet now so I will go see what they are into.
Blog You later…

My "Stages of Change" reading

So I was reading thru my book and came across a Layout called "Stages of Change" and decided to do a reading and this is what I got.

 This is Over and done with
My past plans & Abilities are now in the past it’s time to move on to new and better things in my life.

This is over but the effects still lingers on
Dealing with others Shallowness, Non-understanding, and others who are just plan ignorant.  Let it go.

This is where I am heading
I am headed for a more Awakening, Renewal, and Rebirth in mind and in spirit.

This is what I expect
I am expecting to be more envious of others life and accomplishments.  However, this is only in my head not how I will or want to be.  I want to do more with my life.

This is what I am supposed to learn right now
Learning by doing, learn by my mistakes do not give up.

Advice Card
do not believe all that you are told and trust ultimately only on your inner guiding light and your feelings

Topic Challenge Favorite Quotes

Human being asking Universe...Image by CLUC via Flickr
Wow, I am behind again on the Challenges (eek) Ok so here we go.  This post challenge is for “My Favorite Quotes” which btw is a very big favorite of mine.  Why?  Because there are so MANY Quotes out there that I love and I could list maybe a few hundred here but I don’t want to make you go blind by reading all of them so I will just post 4 here.

  • “Just because you can't see the air, doesn’t mean you stop breathing, and just because you can't see God, Doesn't mean you stop believing!”

  • “  Live simply.  Love generously.  Care deeply.  Speak kindly.  Leave the rest to God.”

  • “  People will forget what you said, People will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

  • “  You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience.  You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.

My Card Reading for Today

2010/09/06Image by 壞天使 via FlickrI have been sort of out of it the last few weeks trying to get back into my card readings. But I haven't really had the inspiration or anything to do one. Its just been on major spiritual blockage. So I decided to use one of my new deck of Tarot Cards so here is today's reading.
So I went ahead and did a Tarot Layout called the "Gypsy Magic Spell" which I don't know why its called that since it doesn't really have anything to do with spells/magic so I dunno who knows. Anyway Here is my results...

This is I...
This card is showing that I have Courage & will power

This is my Defense. 
This card shows that my defense is my Boldness, creativity, Inspiration, Strength and outgoingness is my strongest defense.

This is what I am afraid of? 
This card shows me that my fear of being alienated from my own passions, and desires.  Not being able to fulfill what I want to do and what I desire to accomplish. 

This is what drives me? 
This card shows me that my Strength & Courage keeps me going and helps me to overcome any obstacle that I face.
This is what I am left with?
After this, I am left with more Appreciation, more Peace, and Harmony in Life.

This is what the future will bring? 
If I follow what is good for me and make the right decisions in my life right now, I will have more Joy, Peace, within my Family & Love of those around me.

This is what brings me back to the ground?  H
This card shows that this could bring me down again....Poor progress in something I want to do , anxiety, impatience.

Our Weekend Movie Night

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (film)Image via Wikipedia
I always love late night movies on the weekends.  There is nothing like cuddling up with the kids on the couch watching a great funny kid’s movie.  We just finished watching “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” It was great and so funny.  And it was long but it was still a great movie.  I totally suggest that movie to watch with your kids.

So now on to finding a few things to do online as far as posting on my new blog.  I have not finished it yet to send out a link.  I have a few posts to post up before I do.  So stay tuned for that.  I am really excited about it.  It is going to be such a great place for me to post my thoughts about my own spiritualism and things I have learned the last few years.
Therefore, I will be back shortly if I have anything else to post.  Hope everyone is having a GREAT Weekend!  I know I am.

Topic Challenge Favorite Tv Program

Today I have been on a total writer’s blockage.  (Don't you hate those times).  It seems to me happing a lot to me lately for some reason.  However, thank goodness for Topic Challenges least I know what I can write about on my personal blog.  Nevertheless, my spiritual blog. That is where I’m having the really big blockage and it’s totally driving me crazy because there’s so many people that are requesting my help and I’m unable to help them because I am unable to help myself get out of this spiritual rut. Therefore, I hope things will come too soon and I figure out what to write about.

However, I do know what I need to write about right now and that is today’s topic challenge.  Today’s Challenge theme is “My Favorite TV Program.”  I honestly do not watch that much TV because so many things are just not my cup of tea anymore.  So many things are just unnecessary these days. (Even for kids) like Degrassi (kids cutting themselves, Kids getting pregnant) and the show act as if it is okay and it is normal.  Anyway, you get what I am saying.  Then you have some of these ghost hunters provoking spirits just for a show (NOT GOOD).

So OK you didn’t actually come here to read me ramble on about what I don’t like, so On to a TV show I DO like….First off I like Ghost Whisper, MediumGeorge Lopez (He’s majorly Funny).  Other than that, I do not watch much else.  I mostly enjoy reading, writing, or computer.  However, I do watch many movies but TV not a whole lot.

Topic Challenge Favorite Book

Stephenie Meyer's EclipseImage via Wikipedia

As far as books are concerned, I am still on the process of reading two big books.  One being the Twilight trilogy “Eclipse” & Eragon. Yes I love books that deal with Vampires, Dragons, magic and Shadow Blades.  

I am also working on two of my own books so in-between times I enjoy reading fantasy books the most.  Not really into other type books, unless its spiritual help books (Mediation, Reiki & Etc.).  THEREFORE, I cannot really say I have a Favorite Book just yet.  But just favorite type of books

Topic Challenge Favorite Movie

P.S. I Love You (film)Image via Wikipedia
I am so behind on my Topic Challenges so hopefully I cannot catch up from yesterday’s topic and todays.  Since Hubby is working tonight, I had a little extra work on my hands.  So since four kids are sleeping and one is gone to a friend for a sleepover.  I can get on here and do my Topic Challenges...  (Yeay).
Ok the first Topic was what my Favorite Movie is.  That is so hard to list because there are so many movies that I truly enjoy.  I will try to list a few that’s my up most favorite
Drama/Love Movies:
P.S I love you-Omgoodness!  That Movie I loved!  It made me laugh and cry all at the same time.  It was very heart warming, touching and sad all at the same time.
It was played in 2007.  Here is a few Information I found about the movie that will better explain it,
“Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart, and married to the love of her life - a passionate, funny, and impetuous Irishman named Gerry.  Therefore, when Gerry's life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly.  The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there.  Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry.  Therefore, it is a good thing he planned.  Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her, not only through her grief, but also in rediscovering herself.  The first message arrives on Holly's 30th birthday in the form of a cake, and to her utter shock, a tape recording from Gerry, who proceeds to tell her to get out and "celebrate herself.”  In the weeks and months that follow, more letters from Gerry are delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a new adventure, and each signing off in the same way; P.S.  I Love You.  Holly's mother and best friends begin to worry that Gerry's letters are keeping Holly tied to the past, but in fact, each letter is pushing her further into a new future.  With Gerry's words as her guide, Holly embarks on a journey of rediscovery in a story about marriage, friendship and how a love so strong can turn the finality of death into a new beginning for life.  Written by Orange

  • Twilight Series
  • Eragon (the movie)
  • Tinker-bell (All of them)
  • Furry Vengeance

New Blog Templetes Ive Made

Hello Readers. Sorry I have been away for a bit. I wanted to let you in on a little thing that I am doing.
After trying to search high and low for the perfect templates for my blogs I have decided to make my own. Since I already have HTML, know-how and I can design.

So Hey Why not? Right?

Well Right now I will be practicing you can use the Blogs template’s but expect some hiccups along the way. I will just be adding clean simple Coded Blog Templates and I am still working on some HTML for the more advance features, which is matching font color, Little Embellishments into the Postings and things. In addition, a few headers as well.

Therefore, I have made three so far. Two are available for download and One I am still working on.
So Go here to my new Blog to download the two template’s (I will only be doing 2 column blogs because I can’t seem to get the 3 columns to work with html for some reason that’s why I practice Practice).

THESE BLOGS ARE COMING SOON...........................

My Favorite song: Taylor Swift "He Belongs to me"

Today I am posting for a September’s 30 day posting challenge that I am participating.  The group hosting the challenge is on Cafemom.  (Check out the top page for more details under “Topic Challenge”).

Today’s Topic is “Your Favorite Song”

The Song that I picked is by Taylor Swift.  She is one of my favorite singers. I love just about all her songs but I think “He belongs to me” stands out to me more, because I feel like many of us women can relate to her in many ways in this song/video.  Some of us where a little different from the popular girls and somewhat got the short end of the stick sometimes.  While all the popular girls where glammy and glitzy being so social accepted.  So I really love this song and that she’s gets the guy in the end.  In addition, it is funny to how guys just don’t see a good girl before them when they are there.  I think they are just blinded by the glam.  Lol.
Here is a Video by Taylor Swift “He Belongs to me”

In addition,Ive also added the Lyrics to the song as well:



You Belong With Me lyrics & Video
Songwriters: Rose, Liz; Swift, Taylor Alison;

You're on the phone with your girlfriend, she's upset
She's going off about something that you said
'Cause she doesn't get your humor like I do
I'm in the room, it's a typical Tuesday night
I'm listening to the kind of music she doesn't like
And she'll never know your story like I do
But she wears short skirts, I wear T-shirts
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You, you belong with me, you belong with me
Walking the streets with you and your worn-out jeans
I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be
Laughing on a park bench, thinking to myself
Hey, isn't this easy?
And you've got a smile that could light up this whole town
I haven't seen it in a while since she brought you down
You say you're fine, I know you better than that
Hey, what you doing with a girl like that?
She wears high heels, I wear sneakers
She's Cheer Captain and I'm on the bleachers
Dreaming about the day when you wake up and find
That what you're looking for has been here the whole time
If you could see that I'm the one who understands you
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me
standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time how could you not know?
Baby, you belong with me, you belong with me
Oh, I remember you driving to my house in the middle of the night
I'm the one who makes you laugh when you know you're 'bout to cry
And I know your favorite songs and you tell me 'bout your dreams
Think I know where you belong, think I know it's with me
Can't you see that I'm the one who understands you?
Been here all along, so why can't you see?
You belong with me
Standing by and waiting at your back door
All this time, how could you not know?
Baby, you belong with me, you belong with me
You belong with me
Have you ever thought just maybe
You belong with me?
You belong with me
