Thankful Thursday

So as I laid in bed last night crying and not being able to sleep I watched a preview of a new show called Go On. I was quickly reminded that the things I was crying over are not that bad. Somewhere in the world someone has it worse then me, someone is going through something more trying then me. I've been a stay at home mom for pretty much all of 10 years, it has been such a blessing I have never missed a moment in my children's lives. On the 15th I will start a new journey as a working mom. I have been so excited about this new journey in life. All my kids will be in school this year and won't need me home.......or will they. I just realized last night that being a working mom means missing field trips, awards, and parties. :*( I couldn't stop crying for about an hour as friends talked me down.lol Then I realized that it really isn't that bad. Some where last night a mother was longing for her children, crying to just get to hug them. So I have decided that from now on I will take Thursdays to remember what I am thankful for. 

I'm thankful that my husband and I both have jobs! 

I'm thankful to have a healthy family!

I'm thankful for a supportive family and amazing friends! 

 I'm thankful that I have a roof over my head! 

What are you thankful for today??

I can't wait to see how this change is going to effect my favorite little family for the best. Y'all are going to be great; your kids have amazing heads on their shoulders.
I'm thankful for family and friends who support what I believe in, who love me and my children. I am thankful for the children I will be watching (mine, yours, and my niece!). And very thankful for the blogposts that they're going to help me write with the funny things I know they're going to say and do. :)

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
