Pure Insanity...

LMAO!  I was looking for another graphic, but when I saw this I just started hysterically laughing and could not stop.  That picture is just way too funny.  :)

I am finally back in full swing, or I hope I am!  Things have just been a nightmare for the past week or so.  My mom has been getting dizzy spells and other symptoms for about 3 weeks or so, but would never listen to me about going to the hospital. (She is more stubborn than I am.)  However, she did go to a Chiropracter/Spine Specialist about pain she was having.  She has been having severe pain in her back and her right leg for years, but it has gotten worse.  She found out that she has Severe Degenerative Disk Disorder.  What that is, is the disks in your back have cartilidge in between them to cushion them.  With the disorder my mom has, the cartilidge wears down slowly with age.  It gets to a point where there is hardly any cartilidge left and it's just bone on bone with no cushion.  My mom isn't exactly to that point yet, but she has hardly any cartilidge left.  The doctor has an awesome machine in the office that can relieve that pain.  It's 3 treatments a week for 2 months.  The machine stretches the disks so that it is not bone on bone.  I don't exactly know how it works, but I think it's great what technology can do now!

New Nutrish Makes Dogs Happpy! :)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nutrish. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have a very temperamental Teacup Yorkie who absolutely hates dog food, and always has!  Of course, I'm a softy, so I give in and usually give her some people food.  However, too much "people food" isn't good for dogs and their digestional system, so I figured I had to try something new that maybe she would like.  When I had the chance to review Nutrish, I jumped on the chance.  Anything that may make my dog eat what she should eat makes me happy.

Family Tragedies!

I'm so sorry I haven't been around in almost 10 days.  A lot has been going on.  My mom has been in the hospital since she had TIA's which are mini strokes.  We also found out that she is diabetic.  On top of that, I fell  and am in terrible pain.  I fell directly on my leg and now my leg is buckling and giving out when I step on it.  I may have to be in the emergency room to get this checked out.  I miss writing blogs and will get back into my daily blogging, I just have to focus on my family right now and make sure my mom is ok.  I predict that I will go back to my regularly scheduled blogging by Tuesday.

Celebrating Randomness, woo hoo!

Oh man do I have a bunch of randomness to post today!  I blame the randomness on not having the time to actually write a regular post.  However, I do have a few that I wrote last night and today that are going to be scheduled for publishing this weekend and week.  Does anyone know if there is a program or site that can schedule your tweets for you too? I'd love to schedule some of my tweets about my posts as well. :)  If you know of any, please e-mail me or just post them here.

Dieting Woes - Yes, I do like a point.  I just hate the very beginning of a brand new diet where you're craving everything.  Junk food withdrawal completely sucks, and I'm the first one to admit it.  When you have a hard time controlling your cravings for the junk food, it's worse.  It drives you absolutely insane and makes you want to just go and eat the junk food even if you're dieting.  I know I can't do that, but that's what my brain is telling me!  I can over come it, I can over come it... That's what I have to keep telling myself.

How awesome is Verizon Fios for your family?

We have been through so many TV companies such as Optimum (Cable), DirecTV, Dish Network and finally Verizon Fios.  With other companies we either got charged too much money (Optimum) or lost our network reception during a snow, ice or rain storm. (DirecTV and Dish)  It got to the point where paying for and watching TV was just too frustrating and stressful!  We were quickly losing hope and trying to figure out what service to stick with when we found Verizon Fios. 

Verizon Fios is Verizon's advanced fiber optic network that lets you watch regular and HDTV with hardly any pixelation and interference from the weather!  Honestly, if you have ever had satellite TV, you know how frustrating it is to lose the picture in the middle of a movie or TV show!  It's frustrating and isn't helpful to your relaxation!  Verizon Fios has NONE of that!  That isn't the only thing that makes Fios awesome, it's the other features that come along with it!

FREEBIE! Get a Free Belly Bag from Cryo-Cell!

This post brought to you by CryoCell International. All opinions are 100% mine.
Get a free (adorable) BellyBag when you request an information packet and consult with an advisor about cord blood banking from!
If you are pregnant or planning on getting pregnant, I would highly suggest that you consider cord blood banking.  I found out about it when I was pregnant with Alayna, and I made the decision to do it for both of my children because of the extensive benefits of banking the umbilical cord blood.  The price is definitely right, it isn't too expensive, but even the benefits and advantages of this outweighs any cost.  It's definitely your child's life and future you are thinking about when you decide to bank the cord blood!

I want to wake up next week...

I'm having one of those horribly stressful weeks where every single day, you wish you could go to bed and redo the day over again.  Only that never happens and my days never get better.  Let's see how I started this week... 

It started on Monday when I found out my license had been suspended.  Why?  On July 31st, 2010 I severely strained my Achilles tendon and was on crutches for over a week so that it would heal and wouldn't completely snap.  That night, I was unable to back all the way into my driveway as I usually do since I was on crutches and once you back all the way in, you have to squeeze out since the houses are so close together.  It was impossible for me to back all the way in and get out of my car.  The next morning, I found I had a $75 parking ticket for parking inappropriately in my driveway.
