Too long

Wow, i'm SO sorry I haven't posted in such a long time! Mail goodies/freebies haven't been too bad, but I've been slacking with taking pics and posting them. :(  I've been dealing with some of my own issues (which I really am not ready to throw out there just yet) that I have been getting help for, but it's really been harder to "get a grip" on  than I thought it would be. I mean, I didn't expect things to get fixed and all better overnight but I also didn't expect to slip further down like I have. As I said, it's not something I really want to open up about right now. Hopefully, in the future it will all be something I can look back on and open up about easily.

Anyhoo, things around here seem to be going "ok". Just counting down the months until we can get moved.......hopefully only 5 more months to go!! The boys are SO excited about Halloween this week.....I actually got Chase into his costume and he didn't cry!! I don't know what his deal is about clothes....not only did he have a meltdown when he initially tried on his costume, he has meltdowns when it comes to certain clothes in general!! Especially long sleeve shirts right now! I've been trying to gear him up for the cooler weather coming, but all he says is "I can wear my jacket, I'll be fine..." I've told him it will be WAY too cool to wear a tshirt, even with his jacket, and that he will have to wear warmer shirts in the house with no jacket and he keeps saying "I'll be fine, mommy...." So far today I've gotten him to wear a long sleeve thermal shirt....albeit he has the sleeves pushed up right now, he is wearing it and not crying! LOL He looks so cute in his costume, though. He is going to be a pirate!

He didn't have his hook in the pic, and I seriously doubt he will wear the eye patch on Halloween, but he is just too cute!!Ty had a few ideas of what he wanted to be, I normally I try my best to make their costumes......but when I went onto Party City's website Ty saw a costume that he just LOVED!! And, it was on sale!!! He is going to be Walugi, from MarioKart!
I think he loves amazing!!! He doesn't have the mustache on in this pic, but we are waiting to put that on after we eat dinner Halloween night. That is another thing the boys are excited about....eating dinner at the mall!! Because of the area we live in, we take the boys to the mall for trick-or-treating and it's so nice! Even if the weather is bad or super cold, the mall is the perfect place to go. It's just so hard to believe Halloween is this week......this year has flown by SO fast!

Another "survey" site

I found another survey site that seems to be fairly easy to's called iRazoo. You do need an invite to join, though. But as far as earning points and things, it seems easy! They have videos on their site, and you earn 2 points to watch them...but there are SO many, that you can almost earn a $5 Amazon gift card every single day by watching them!! And, the videos are long, but you only have to watch 40 seconds of them to earn credit! They also post special codes on their Facebook site that you can earn points with, and there are offers on their site that you can do to earn more. Like I always say, you won't get rich quick with this site, but earning a gift card every few days sounds great to me!!! Here is a link to join: (and yes, it is a referral link)

4 years ago today

We said goodbye to my best friend, my mom. It's so hard to believe she has been gone for 4 years, and at the same time it still feels like it just happened yesterday. I miss her so much. I still get the urge to pick up my phone and call her. But as much as I miss her, I know she is watching over all of us. :)

Love & miss you, mom.........
