1/31/15 computer lab…

written 9 ! 25 ! 13 – I volunteered at Maggie’s school as a computer lab monitor today. This is watching the kids in the lab not helping them. Just to be sure that it is basically quiet. So that means a few hours of quiet time for me. I always think light and pack heavy. Maybe I will only need my purse. But…in all of those hours it would be good to have my cell phone and its cord, and my Nook and its cord. My lunch should go and my water and if there is time before the labs open I can pay some bills in the car…there are hours to fill. So I took everything.
This morning everything was ready. And we leave. About a block away from the house I look into the seat next to me and see that my lunch is not there. We go back. We have a few minutes. I try to take everything that is going with us in the morning and put it in something with a handle. Then I wind my purse strap through the handles. If the purse goes then everything else will go too. Yes, I look like a dork, but only at home. Sometimes we go back home more than once…it isn’t always me, sometimes the kids forget things too. I am always waiting for the neighbors to come out and say “are you back again?”

1/30/15 writing, backpacks…

written 9 ! 24 ! 13 – My days never seem to go the way that I plan them. Tonight the girls had youth group. I was going to write while they were there. Last weekend Maggie told me that she would need a back pack soon. We didn’t get to it so tonight she said that she needed one now. Maggie doesn’t like to miss youth group, so the backpack must have been a real mess. Last night Beth said that she was going to wear a skirt to youth group. That was nice, but some of her skirts are too short. We got in the car, picked up two of their friends for youth group. I realized that she was wearing a skirt. I couldn’t see the length while she was sitting down. We were already late. How did she get out of the house in a skirt without me seeing her? She trades her outgrown clothes with her friends at school so I am not there when she gets the clothes.  We got to the church, looked at her skirt, it was long enough. Maggie and I went to the store to get a backpack. Since we hadn’t planned on buying a backpack today, I didn’t have the money with me. The church is not in our neighborhood so we needed to find an ATM. We looked at the choices of stores while we looked for an ATM, that way if we found an ATM we would know the choices of stores. In the end…we did find an ATM and at the second store we found a backpack that she liked, was big enough and was in our price range. We took Maggie back to youth group. Crisis diverted.
There was another day about a month ago that I had planned to write but one of the kids had taken their phone charger cord outside to take with us in the car…now the part of the phone charger cord with the prongs came off of the cord. The girls had been playing chase in the back yard and the plug in part had come off. They didn’t realize it was missing until we were on our way home. I am not sure why the charger went to the car, they don’t use it there. We spent the evening in the backyard with flashlights looking for the outlet part. We never did find it.
We should stop at the back door on our way out so I could say to the kids “what are you wearing and what are you taking” but we are always running too fast to do that.
I have good intentions to write, but we have a lot of life going on here. My posts would be better written if I had more time to write, but there wouldn’t be as much to write about. I like it this way.

Here is a cow that we saw last weekend.

1/29/15 hair cuts, winter jackets, donkeys and pumpkins…

written 9 ! 23 ! 13 – Beth got as hair cut. She likes “high maintenance” hair. Her bangs hang in front of her face and are just long enough that they can’t stay behind her ear. She has to put her hair back all day long. The kids of her generation like this hair cut.

Fall is here. The leaves are turning colors. We need to try on our winter jackets and see how many pairs of gloves we have. We either are way ahead on trying on our winter things, or we…I …forget and we try them on the morning that we wake up and it is freezing out. We have a lot of left handed gloves. Where did all of the right handed gloves go? We buy a few pairs of one style of glove, in all the same color that way if we loose a glove we can still use the one that is left. Since we have lost all of the right handed gloves, we will need new gloves. We keep the unmatched gloves to use to shovel the drive and play in the yard if all of the matched gloves are wet.

Here is a picture of some donkeys and pumpkins. They are made out of straw. I think that they are donkeys…

blog income
I have been looking for a way to bring extra cash into my family without getting a second job. I just want enough extra income to be able to pay the bills but still be able to have time to enjoy my kids. I tried a lot of web sites that offered envelope stuffing, they were all dead ends. Then I tried blogging. I figured that if enough people visited my blog then I could add advertisements and get paid. If I monetized my blog I could take the profit to help my family. I have found Blogsvertise. With them I can have advertisements on my blog, or have guest posts or have banner ads. I am still new to this.
