Tuesday and Wednesday we had incredibly warm weather (Tuesday we had a high of 73 and upper 6o's on Wednesday), we were all hoping it would stay.
I guess we are all silly, especially becasue we know this happens every year in this wonderful city we live in!
Thursday we woke up to snow, not much, but SNOW none the less.
I asked Josh to get up and take Merci to school for me, I was so tired and a bit crabby.
He said something about snow and I snapped "Quit lying to me I am not in the mood."
Wednesday night the house was so warm, 75, warmer thanif we had the heat on, sadly. I went to bed in shorts and woke up to SNOW.

Here are some pictures as proof of the warm weather.

It was so warm Merci got out a pair of her flip flops from last year!

The same crocuses in my profile picture at the same time as last year!

These are all the toys we got out of storage for the kids to play with!
Covered in SNOW!

What is this world coming to?

We all had tornado, and fire drills in school, but guess what kind of drills they have in school now??

That's right terroist attck drills or bomber drills.
To protect the kids if there was a violent attack of any kind on the school.

Merci was telling me they had to find a good place to hide in case someone was going to "shoot" them. She lost the first time and learned hiding next tot he computer was a bad spot, becasue she got "shot". She did find a nice safe place the next time though.

At first I was a little annoyed and wanted to march in and yell at the teacher for pretending to "shoot" my kid. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how much of a reality it is.
It made me really sad.

The things are kids have to hear about and experience is mind boggling.

Jesus Loves me!

102 nasty days

A lot of you know we are worried about Merci, wondering if ADHD/ADD could be a culprit.

Before I decide to take her to get tested etc, etc. I did a little research and had actually heard this doctor on the radio awhile back talking about how just altering the food we eat and supplements we take could drastically reduce symptoms of ADHD/ADD. So last week I ordered his book. It came today!! I haven't put it down. I am so excited to learn about this disease and how we can eliminate it!!

Anyway listen to this!

The half-life of trans fatty acids or hydrogenated fats is 15 days. That is, after 51 days, one-half of the negative effects of this man-made fat have been processed, but the body needs an additional 51 days to complete the process. After these 51 days, there is still a 25% residual. Therefore, the ill effects of one bag of fries lasts 102 days! Can you believe it?

When you reward your child or grandchild with a bag of french fries, it takes over 3 month (102 days) for it to be properly processed through the body. During that time period, the body does not have adequate fat production, which jeopardizes nerve transmission. Improper nerve function is one of the primary reasons that we have hyperactivity in our society.
Adding to the diet essential fats like flax oil with proper minerals and B vitamins can result in a dramatic reduction of hyperactivity.

Taken from Dr Bob's Guide to Stop ADHD in 18 days. Dr Bob is a drug less doctor.

I just might think twice about ever eating fries again!

This book is very interesting, it isn't just about ADHD, he is very educating in why what he says works and why these types of foods interact wrongly with our bodies! it is even more interesting to me because he is talking all about body function which I am studying in Biology right now!!

Really FREE phones!

We all know that when it is time to sign a new contract with our cell phone companies, we can get a "free" phone. And we all know that those "free" phones are NOT the ones we want. Check out WireFly to see the free cell phones they are offering! They have, Blackberry Pearl, RAZR, and even Cingular's NEW Blackjack. Awesome phone, top of the line phones for FREE. All you have to do is sign a new 2 year contract with T Mobile.
They are also offering, right now, $50 cash back and a FREE Jabra Bluetooth headset, that is a $60 value for FREE. I don't know how you can say NO to a deal like this. If your contract is up soon. Check our WireFly right NOW!

Go ahead!

Did I forget to mention, these are free at checkout...NO REBATES!

There are FANTASTIC deals like this through most cell phone companies, some do have rebated though, but the deals are AWESOME!!!! Go to WireFLy and look at all what your company is offering!

They have a variety of plans, even family share plans.
This is not a scam and it is worth your money!

I think we will definitely be checking WireFly out when our contract is up, I kinda feel cheated.
I got one of those cheap "free" phones, and I could have a Blackberry Pearl=(

I really, really want a BlackBerry Pearl you can do so much with it. It would be my little computer in my purse! How convenient!!

You have nothing to loose, just check out this site pick out the phone you want and I am sure you can get it for free. No more cheap little phone. I will be saying bye, bye to my cheap little phone as soon as I can, believe me!

R U Wondering?

If you are wondering why there are advertisement posts popping up, it is becasue I have joined PayPerPost. I get paid to advertise on my blog. Someone I know personally has been doing it and recommended it, so I decided, Why not! You get b/w $5 and $10 per post. This really adds up!
So you can look at the sites or you don't have too. I try to pick stuff that I might actually use myself. And I will et you know when I get my first paycheck!! I will be going shopping, for ME=)

On some of the advertisements you will see a button that says get paid to review my posts.
Why not try it and make money for yourself!

So please keep reading. I only plan on doing it every other day or so!
