The search for a vehicle

My husband has been searching the Internet the other day for a vehicle that we can use as a backup for our other Amigo.  He  ran into this terrific little deal. I call my husband Mcguiver who knows how to fix things "whatever it takes" :-). So this truck that he found on craigslist is a fixer upper that needs a fuel tank that needs to be fixed. My husband is so excited to pick it up and bring it home  so he can start his new project. It's nice to take a risk when there's not a lot money involved. For the price they want  if we don't purchase this we got to be crazy. I'm so excited because you know what I can use this automatic truck to learn how to drive.

Thank you cards

I love designing different things on our computer and printing them out for our friends and relatives. Playing with the photo studio is always fun changing pictures, cropping photos is one of my specialties. Twice this year my friends have come to me and ask me to design thank you cards for their weddings. I was happy. They gave me a challenge for my creative mind. They came out so beautiful. Other relatives after seeing them have requested me to do the same for them.

Our son's hats

It's really funny listening to our son as he learns to talk and use words more and more. Now that he is a big four years old. We're at the store shopping a lady told our son that she liked his hat. He's kind of a hat guy. The hat he wore is an old fashioned style so he definitely looks like a little man. But that's all it took the lady saying she liked his hat. He started talking and then stop for ten minutes telling the lady all about all of his different hats. So sweet.

Fat burner

In general what takes a long time to do usually takes a long time to undo. You would think a lousy ten pounds of extra weight would go away easily. Well five pounds of it did.  The other five pounds seems to want to hold forever. I seem to get some of the weight off at one point I was down to only two pounds left. And then Thanksgiving came and I went back up to seven pounds left to go. I hope to take care of my problem with a fat burner long before Thanksgiving this year and not eat so much.

PC technicians

We spent a lot of money on our home computer and of course had a great warranty policy on it through geek squad. The thing that's horrible is that the geek squad we have these guys really don't know what they're doing. They call us up saying our PC is fixed, we bring it home and it's worse than when we took it there. I thought at first that the geek squad were experienced in technical problems. These guys aren't. They just take the guts all of your computer out and replace it with new. That's fine if they use the right parts but in our case they didn't. Very unhappy with their work.

Lose weight

It should be the world's most less favorite pass time because to lose weight you usually have to give up so much that you eat or they have you eat so much that you don't like. I've always figured  it's a balancing game of intake of food and exercise. It always worked for me at least right up until I have our baby boy. Now I always have this extra little bit to get rid of. Taking it off slowly seems to work the best for me.

Old movies

Cleaning out the attic the other day looking for all the Halloween stuff I ran across the box that I put up many many years ago. The box was loaded with all of my old VHS movies when I was a kid.  Being our son is four now a lot of these movies we can introduce him to including seeing them myself again also was fun. There must have been at least ten hours of Jim Hanson's muppet movies that my son jump up and down as he watched them.

Weight loss product

Don't you wish you could find the right product that works for you the first time you search around? Unfortunately it is almost always a shot in the dark. Searching usually takes a long time and you never know if the product is going to be right for you. For instance it took me about six weeks to find the right sleeping pills and about ninety dollars later. When it came to a weight loss product my search didn't take that long. Two days and I found the right product.

Zombie Land

Ever since we got our Wii player we have lots of movies on queue lined from Netflix where we can watch movies instantly on our TV. From the titles  my husband selected the title "zombie land". Well this movie is a little different from the previous horror movies that we watch. Of course this is a battle of freakiest zombies. This is about people that turned into zombies and then eats people and the only way to to stop them from eating people is to blow their heads off or cut their heads off. Pretty gross huh so if you don't want to watch this blood filled movie don't watch it.

Rustic furniture

We had so much fun building our back enclosed porch. My husband was kind of sad when it was done. There was such so many things that we had to pick out that was fun. The end wall where the sun come across is mostly glass so in the winter time the sun shines on the beautiful Pennsylvania slate floor. The floor will heat up and help maintain the warmth in the room.  The rustic furniture we've picked out gives a nice central point to the room focused around a nice gas log fire place. All in all we are very happy with our room.

Fish on the creek

All these years we been driving by a creek on the side of one road that we use. My husband used to fish there as a young boy but its always been so low up until our recent rainfall. My husband seen this went home grab the fishing poles and went back. Within one hour time we have caught twelve fish. What a great time we had until we went to pull up our stringer a snapping turtle must have liked our fish better than us. He ate four of them all the way up to their heads. Poor fish. Anyhow we fillet the fish. They tasted great on our grill.

Remove belly fat

There are seems to be more and more overweight people every year.  A lot of our jobs are information jobs  where you're working on a computer all day. Kids are sitting around on their rooms playing the games instead of being out playing baseball or football something that's physical. It's not all about just getting older. The phase is getting faster to get there but the jobs themselves don't have any physical interaction anymore. My husband says if he could just  remove belly fat on himself and start over again he would have a better chance at staying with his workout schedule than where he is now.

Wii benefits

We finally broke down and bought a Wii game system. We tried to keep games out of the house because they can be such a distraction from family life. So we finally figured it out that we bought family games to play together and that's the only way we going to play the system. The reason for buying  is that netflex movies can stream through the machine wireless through the linksis system for high speed Internet access. One of the bonuses we found in the Wii is that you can put your SD camera card in the back of it  and view all your new pictures on the TV. We love seeing our pictures the size of our TV screen.

Side effects of diet pills

Growing old comes with aches, pains, and pills. Take a vitamin for everything overall take an aspirin for your heart, take glucosamine for your joint care. I exercised right, I get the right foods but I'm still slowly gaining weight. I know it's to do with my snack every now and then but I don't tell my husband. I ended up getting some diet pills a few weeks ago but every time I take them I get a head ache in an hour or so. I wonder if it's the side effects of diet pills or everything that I take altogether. It doesn't say anything on the box about side effects.

Starting early for Halloween

Halloween is getting closer and we like starting early. This year we are putting or should I say digging two or three graves in the front yard. They will be motorized so the tops of the coffins go up and down as people are approaching. One other great thing is we're designing a remote control ghost to chase the kids around in the front yard. The ghost will be made from an old RC truck that we've had for years.

Swimming pool supplies

This year has been a great way for swimming. The daytime temperatures had been great the only problem we are having is even with the solar cover at night the pool is cooling down quite a bit. So my husband went out and bought ten lenghts of pvc pipe connected them together. The sun shines on them so it pre-heats our pool faster. When we went to get our swimming pool supplies, the man at the store was amazed at how my husband had designed our new pvc pool heater.

The process of opening boxes

I told daddy this morning how happy I am when I finally opened the box of cereal the right way! Hooray for that..I was glad  because no one in our household will complains of the boxes of cereal being ripped opened here and there. I must admit that I do not have the patience in opening any kind of boxes these days most especially on occasions like Christmas, birthdays etc.  where kids toys are concerned. How much more you think that these people will put tons of wires on each box? To complete the process of taking the toys out of the box you would need pliers along with extra batteries to make sure every toy works. But the works will be payed for with big smiles from our little boy who patiently waits at his new toy.

Ipods

First there were records then there were 8-track tapes. Then there were cassette tapes. But I really feel ipods is the next generation. My grandfather had quite a few classic records of the Beatles and also Elvis Presley. I couldn't believe how much they brought at the state auction after he passed. I know my grandmother was happy at the price that they brought.  I heard some old 8-track tapes are selling for lots of money on Ebay.

Watching "Warehouse 13"

I love watching sci-fi  and the history channel. One of my favorites is "warehouse 13". The show basically stores artifacts in a huge warehouse. Each one of this artifacts has its own strange power in one way or another. One particular artifact can change your appearance to anyone that you wish. I would love to have this. It will be so funny fooling people.

Life insurance quotes

Saving money in these hard times has become a daily task. I'm always shopping for a good buy. I've become a new style compared to shopper online. Between the tires and muffler on our truck  shopping around saved us 215 dollars just the other day. This week I'm going to focus on getting multiple life insurance quotes. My husband just recently turned fifty and it seems like everyone wants to sell him this insurance. I said I'd rather take the extra money at this time  and put it into better medical insurance.

Roofing

I didn't realize removing an old roof from a house and installing a new one was such a tough work. My husband is doing this to the neighbor's house to pick up some extra cash. My husband pulled our trailer over to the side of the house attached the tarp to it to the trailer and the house so the old shingles will slide up the roof and into the trailer without making too much of a mess. Being he is doing it alone it will take approximately five days to strip it and replace the old roof. Extreme work.

Texas Maritime lawyers

So many unjust things in the world these days and who's responsible sometimes it takes years to get to the bottom of it. The poor people in Louisiana when the dykes broke, shouldn't the federal or the state government taking care of this better? The devastation runs so deep when it comes to the oil damage. I've heard that the Texas Maritime lawyers are on the case on how far bp is responsible for in this case.

We're thinking about going up to Old Forge  for our October wedding anniversary hopefully on the 16th the  weather will still be warm enough to go canoeing on the lake. Of course my husband wants to go fishing up there for some of New York States most incredible fish. With any luck grandma can take our son for the weekend giving us some time together.

Matouk

Our bathroom came out beautiful after our extreme renovations. After all the work I didn't really care for the color of the paint which we chose after a few months. It was just too dark so off to the paint store to get more samples. After a few days and a few different girlfriends opinions I decided they're crazy and I pick something different. Now I have to change out my towels and other decorations. I found quite a selection at
matouk. The selections are great. The styles I chose actually worked better than my originals.

Using a laser level

My husband was being so helpful the other day. I'm always trying to line up pictures on the wall. It's tough to get all the picture the same height and level. Each one that I do seem to take forever so my husband thought that he buy me a small laser level. You level it on the wall turn on the beam it shoots a nice straight line across the wall to hang the pictures. As a carpenter's wife I could pencil mark this with a regular level. My husband loves it  because it gets him out of the work of holding a four foot level across the wall. This way is so much easier.
