Heated blanket

With the wood stove going downstairs is too hot the upstairs is too cold. We put a fan at the bottom of the stairs that seems to help a little bit. But the best thing I ever did was to buy a heated blanket. The one that has dual control because I like it very hot. On the other hand my husband likes it a lot colder. If I roll over in the middle of the night towards his side it feels like someone just threw ice cubes towards me. It goes to show you in the summer time we can never come to an agreement with the settings on the air conditioner.

Another work from home job

I like to do something a little bit different in life and it would be nice  if I could work from home considering the price of gas  is supposed to hit over 5 dollars a gallon. I'm looking into beeing a medical billing specialist. Training at home sounds like a good thing and they say you can earn up to 40,000 a year and more. I can be my own boss choose my own hours and also get a tax break for a portion of my home and all the materials that I use at my home job. It all sounds pretty good but I hope the time that I put to learning it is worth the money that I get out of it.

Our poor little guy

Even though its winter its kind of mild outdoors we decided to take our son to the zoo. Just to have something to take his mind off from what had happened earlier this week in school. They were getting ready for lunch so he went to wash his hands but the bathroom was full of other kids. The teacher told him to go to the next room and use that bathroom. The other class room was empty. He opened the bathroom door, as he went to close it the door swung wild his hand was in the way. As he pulled back his pinkie finger got smashed in the door literally crushing it and tearing the meat to the bone. See this door swung the opposite way as his bathroom door and also didn't have a hydraulic to slow it down.

The school called we went to get him.The  first hospital we went to after taking an hour to evaluate him told us they really didn't want to do it. So back on the road to another hospital that could. This hospital didn't have enough doctors on staff so we had to wait another hour for the specialist to look at it. After that it was 2 hours between everything before we could bring our five year old home. The bad part about it is he has pain medicine for it but he says there's no pain. This possibly means that he has no nerves left in his little pinkie. What should we do. On Tuesday they will be removing his cast to check on it. So so devastating.

Unsecured business loans

Starting a small business  took a lot more out of us than the expected. Even though we had a business plan there was a few things in the first couple of months that came out than were unexpected. We were already at the bottom when it came to the savings that we put in the business. We were used to doing things at our own so we went out and looked for a short term unsecured business loans. The interest may have been higher but we were able to pay back in a short term so it really didn't hurt us at all.

Picture frames

So many pictures. What to do with them all? We ran out of books and picture frames time for a new entertainment center. I think the one that we will get will be bigger with more shelves to hold extra pictures. I'd like to put two automatic hd picture frames with a slide show but they're a little distracting next to the TV. So many things to figure out with the new room.

Wii zumba

Working at home can pack on a pounds after a few years. It's good to have low fat snacks on hand so it doesn't get out of control. I've tried quite a few exercise DVD over the years including the Wii exercise game. With working at home and taking care of the kids at the same time doesn't leave much time. The most fun that I've had lately is with the wii zumba. I love how they walk you through step per step and I can start it over again and again to learn everything  the correct way and it's a lot of fun at the same time.

Digital converter

I was about to throw out all my old cassettes. I just didn't know what to do with all them in today's world. I happen to stumble across an ad in the magazine for a little machine that you put your cassette in connected to your pc and it reforms your old cassettes into digital format so I can listen to them directly on file on my PC or I can convert them to DVD's so I get to save my music forever.
