Cheer on!

My daughter has just brought to my attention that she wants to be a cheerleader at her school next year and try outs are in a week. I was a cheerleader in high school myself and it actually helped me academically and sociably, so I told her that I’ll be cheering her on, because I think it would be a great experience for her and give her a chance to meet new girls and maybe make some new friends. I cant wait to see her cheering at games next year, I know she’ll be great, she so flexible and very talented in dance, so cheer leading should be a piece of cake for her.

Credit Card deals to be found

Hubby and I are going to sit and review our present credit card situation. I want to see if we can downsize, I just paid off one credit card this month and will no longer use it, that is a good feeling.

There is a great variety of attractive and very profitable deals to be made by taking the time to research on a web-site, so I know what we will be doing in the next couple of days or so. It is not something that I look forward to doing all that much, paperwork just drives me up the wall and Hubby is not known for his patience, but if in the end we end up saving and or earning money it will be well worth the effort, wouldn’t you agree?

Rainy Days

It has been raining like crazy since last week, and its supposed to keep raining all weekend long. My kids have been driving me crazy with the whole “I’m bored” spiel ever since Thursday, because my kids are usually always outside playing sports or playing in the yard with toys and friends. My son especially, he absolutely loves playing basketball all day, everyday. The weekends are usually my time to relax since I work all week at two full time jobs and most of the time worn out and not being able to move at all after work, but I almost always try to make time for family events or just little things to do with the kids to keep them happy and cheerful. Hubby on the other hand, sometimes is required to work on the weekends but usually most of the time comes home and plays with the kids until they all can’t move, which I think is so awesome that he does that. But this weekend is a little hard on all of us, Hubby and I are both feeling a bit sick and can hardly get the energy to move to do anything, and the kids are so bored because its rainy heavily outside and they cant do any activities they normally do. SO I got up today and went to the movie store an rented quit a few movies for them that they have been wanting to see here for a while, and hopefully it keeps them busy long enough to where we can feel better and do family things again. I hope it stops pouring out there soon, I’ll smile big when it happens, I know my kids sure will be smiling big.

Inspiring nephew

I have a nephew who is in his second year of college at one of the top elite universities here on the east coast, so he is not too far away but is still not as close as we would like him to be. He is a great kid and is bond to make a name for himself and will definitely make a difference in this world in numerous ways in his life time. Can you tell that I am a proud aunt!

His mom really misses him and only gets to see him maybe 2 or 3 times a year, his Dad lives way up north and he is constantly trying to appease both parents when it comes to holiday visits and vacations. Of course my sister seems to be constantly getting the short end of the stick, but that is the same struggle that she was dealing with even before he left for college. It really sucks when a kid is bounced back and forth and is stuck trying to please both sets of parents.

When he does get a chance to visit, he spends most of his time sleeping, eating and doing homework, which leaves not enough time, as far as she is concerned, for them to just hang out and talk and to do things together, alas she cherishes every moment that she can get out of him when she can.

Good Luck! – Part 2

LUCKY SEVEN.  Seven is the sum of three and four, the triangle and the square, which ancient Greeks considered the two “perfect figures.” The lunar cycle, which is 28 days, is divided into four seven-day quarters: New Moon, First Quarter, Full Moon, and Third Quarter. It may also come from the game of craps, where rolling a seven wins the roll.

LUCKY HUNCHES.  Believe it or not, this is from the days when rubbing a hunchback’s hump was considered good luck. The ancient Egyptians worshipped a hunchbacked god named Bes, and the ancient Romans hired hunchbacks as servants because they thought it brought the household good luck.


“IN March 1997, the Sunday Oklahoman profiled Oklahoma City homemaker Mary Clamser, 44, whose deterioration with multiple sclerosis had been abruptly halted in 1994 when lightning struck her house while she was grasping metal objects with each hand and wearing her metal leg brace.

“Suddenly, she began walking easily, and though doctors told her the condition was probably only temporary, she still walks easily today. As if that weren’t enough good luck, Clamser, in order to fly to California for a TV interview in April 1995, was forced to cancel a local appointment she had made at the Oklahoma City federal building for 9 a.m. on April 19.”
