Correction: Disney Live! not on ice

Yes, I have made a mistake, it turns out it was Disney Live! and not Disney on ice. Nonetheless, we all had fun. The tickets being free helped out greatly!! My 8year old son didn't even mind all the princess. Now, off to other contests to win more free things!

Disney on ice

I just won 4 tickets from my new favorite website I think I am more excited than twin daughters. It was sort of a raffle like, where the more reviews you wrote the better your chances. Well, if anyone knows me, I live by reviews! Reviews will, literally, be my sole decision about the place/event. So, this was easy for me. I wrote reviews about the places I have gone personally and wha-la I won! Thanks kidwinks!! And yes, my daughters were super excited also.

Whether it's the weekends, long breaks or even summer vacation, you can never have enough craft ideas. I found a website that may help all you mothers out there. As the coming days, I will still continue to find more ideas :) Have fun!

It's the little things

Valentines Day...why is it when I hear these two words, I think relaxation? Well today was far from it! I was running around all day, one errand to the next. Everything I need to get done was due today. Kindergarten registration, grocery shopping, after school clubs, meetings, did not end! When I finally came home with the kids, I found my husband already home. He didn't want me to cook AND I found a lily plant and a box of chocolates...awwww!!! After finishing homework and looking thru valentine cards from school, all 3 of my kids marched up stairs to their bedrooms to go to sleep...ON THEIR OWN! I sat there in shock for second, but then I...relaxed ;)

Litte White Lies

I have been dealing with little white lies since my oldest could understand: "after I'm done, we'll go to the park" or when I want to watch my show, I'll tell my kids there are no cartoons on right now. I don't see any harm to it; my kids are 8 and 5 and pretty normal.  But now, I see myself having him say the little white lies for me. I feel utterly guilty, because, of course, I don't want to teach him that. I can't help it!! For instance, if I get a chance to nap and all of a sudden my husbands sister decides to call, I would tell him to tell her I'm in the shower and I'll call her later. Or if my twins' teacher asks me to volunteer I'd tell them to tell her, I have a doctors appointment. I hate that it happens but sometimes I just want to be left alone, even if it mean my children have to lie for me! Another issue i have is, he never questions that I am doing something wrong. Could it be that he now thinks its normal? I have certainly made a vow to myself that I will stop putting him in the middle, however, I have a feeling it will happen again! Maybe I just shouldn't over due it!

Cleansing Diet: Juice Cleansing

This is a website I came across for detoxing your body. Now I haven't tried any of the recipes, because I am scared, but I would sooo good for our bodies. I'm going to buy all kinds of different ingredients and take it one step at a time. I think we should all try to eat healthy and take care ourselves, but gosh darn it, its hard!!! Well if anyone tries anything before PLEASE let me know how it went; I can use all the support I can get. Maybe i'll get my kids to this first ;)
