Of course when I go internet shopping, I look for everything that is relevant for my self, my family and my home and since a friend had told me about vitamins at SmartyPants, I wanted to look up the advantages and information. I personally can’t tell you what to think of this, but for me to not to have to take vitamins that are hard to swallow, well.. I’m all for it. The perks are they are designed to be for both adults and children. This to me is good news. Not to mention more than just the essential vitamins. Much better than taking a bunch of others, I’d say. Course, it’s just my opinion.
My daughter had called me and asked what kind of vitamins I had given to her and her siblings and then she turned me on to this site that tells all abut what she is considering buying herself and her family. As one can see, it indeed is an informative side and also doesn’t pull any sales punches. I’ll tell you, between my grand daughter, daughter and I, we’ll be trying out the vitamins. I do not like taking vitamins as they are hard to swallow. I’d rather chew gummy vitamins that taste great and have the vitamin coverage we need, and I’d be happy about it. Even the gum drops that are fun looking and healthy!
So, truth be known I think I would actually try these… I’m still stuck on the gummy drops! I know my grand daughter will be game for it too!

Normally I get all prepared to do the weeks grocery shopping, and today I wish I would have stuck to my shopping routine. I usually go to two or sometimes even four different stores, depending on where what I need to get is the least expensive. Today I messed up.
First thing I forgot was my list. I had a pretty good idea of the general items I needed, and with the price of gas, I sure didn’t want to go back home to get my list. Of course, when I got up to the check out line, I had an instant flash of my list AND coupons and exactly where they were…on my small desk back home. I actually wanted to take the time to put everything back and just call it quits on the shopping for the day and have a free for all for supper.
Because of the drought this summer and other factors, prices of everything is going up. I even noticed a big difference in every day priced items from just last week and they had gone up ten to fifteen cents from the price these normally were. Egg prices are terribly high now, and I’m contemplating seriously I might add, about building a hen house.
Of course meat prices are soaring, along with grain, including bread, cereal, crackers and flour. It’s getting to the point that I think I’m going to have to get some kind of aid for groceries if this keeps up. I work, my kids work and so does my husband, but I can’t see how we are going to make ends meet this winter. No pun intended on the “meet” part either. It’s hard to eat healthy when the healthy foods are so expensive.

This is not like me. I woke up at about 5:30 am, like usual. The kids got on the bus, my husband got home from work and all of a sudden I was so tired, I literally had a hard time keeping my eyes open. It hit me like a full tidal wave. One minute I was fine…getting dressed and ready for the day, then the next moment, I felt like I was going to fall asleep on my feet.
My husband told me to lay down and I could barely make it to the sofa. It was sooo strange. Like everything was in slow motion. I remember pulling the lap robe over me and I was out like a light. I barely remember my husband putting his had on my forehead…I guess to see if I had a temperature, but he didn’t say anything that I can remember. I was so tired that I wouldn’t have known it, even if he had said something.
When I woke up, it was nearly 6:30, the kids were home and my husband had left for work. I was pretty disoriented for a few minutes. Then the guilt thing mom’s get, crept in. Despite of the kids telling me I must have needed the sleep, I still felt terrible that I slept all that time. Now I wonder if I’ll be up all night. I can work though, so that is a plus. I still feel like I shirked on my responsibilities though.

This has got to be the worse cold and flu season I have ever gone through. I think it is because we have had (knock on wood) a very mild winter here. At the middle of last week and into the weekend, we were supposed to get hammered with a mega snow storm. It went around us, mostly. And the snow that did come down, melted really fast.
I’m not complaining about not having the snow. I just hate having a knock me down and out cold and sore throat. My kids have it…down to my oldest son who never gets sick, and now my husband has the running nose, that he called me a “baby” about when I complained of my nose being raw despite of my sworn upon Puffs Plus.
Of course men are babies when they get sick, but can’t tolerate others if someone besides them get ill. Okay, not all men, but my husband is like that. Of course he is out now scouring the stores for relief for his symptoms. Pfffttt… NOW he gets this stuff, after saying he “wouldn’t get sick.” I feel a bout of sneezing coming on. Wonder if I can break my ten in a row this time. SMH, I’m going to make chicken soup tomorrow. I don’t know why though…we can’t taste anything, let alone smell anything.

Almost every one of my friends are coming down with what seems like a flu bug. It starts with a headache, then chills and even emotional ups and downs. It’s really strange. I keep saying I’m not going to get it…trying to think positive and all that. BUT, I’ve had half a headache all day and just feel icky. No doubt why I didn’t want to go to the grocery store today. Perhaps it wasn’t just my flaw of procrastination.
