I’ve had plenty of hard things to live through in my life. I’ve learned a lot from all the things I’ve gone through though, so all the hard things were worth it in the end. They were hard, but all those difficulties and trials I went through made me who I am today and brought me to where I am today. Life lessons are always hard to go through. What I didn’t expect is for Life’s Lessons to be so hard to watch my children go through them. Much harder than going through them myself.

Is this really what we’ve come to? Just about! Today the AAP came out with their new and improved car seat guidelines. Now, they are telling us that we have to keep our kids in a REAR facing car seat until they are 2 years old. And your child must be in a car seat or booster seat until they are 100 lbs or 12 years old. And no one under the age of 13 should be in the front seat. Ummm.. yeah, that’s all going to go over REALLY well with Junior High school kids!
Speaking of honest reviews….. Here’s one I have for you! I was recently accepted as a Purex Insider, which means I get some samples of Purex Complete’s new products in exchange for an honest review of said product. I generally like the products that Purex makes so I was pleased to find out that I was now a Purex insider! I am always on the lookout for new cleaning products to use, especially ones that are healthier for people and the environment. That’s why I was very interested in learning more about the Purex Complete Crystals Softener.
I love blogging… really I love writing. I always have. I wanted to be a journalist for a short time, until I realized that it was almost as difficult to get published as it was to get into the movies. That’s when I decided that I’d just write for fun. When I realized that I could publish my own works on my own website, it was fantastic! But few, if anyone, ever saw my websites. That is until I learned to blog and how to get my blog seen online.
Today I am thankful for our new house. It is simply perfect for us. The boys will have their own rooms, there’s a basement with plenty of room for a poker table. I have a huge kitchen, with all new(er) appliances. There’s a dog run, a laundry room, and a nice large pool. The only thing that could make this place even better is to be near my mom & sister….. well, how’s next door?
Ok… maybe it’s more like a wordFULL Wednesday being that it’s Dr. Seuss’ Birthday! LOL! Do NOT play this in front of kids or at work! FAIR WARNING!! ROFL!
