    As a blogger I have to say I am beyond annoyed and frustrated by UPS as well as their UPS My Choice program. A couple days ago I learned that I should have received a high value item from a sponsor. I was unaware this package was coming so I didn't have tracking information ahead of time. As a blogger this is not uncommon. Infact that is one of the reasons I signed up for the My Choice program. That way I would always know when a package is coming, because it never hurts to keep an eye out for it. Well apparently when this package was delivered there was a glitch or heck who knows. My package was supposedly left on my doorstep, even though I was home at the time so I know this is false. Now keep in mind this package was "delivered" a month ago and thinking I received it my sponsor emailed me asking me how I was liking it..........ummm.....liking what?? So she gives me the tracking number and the picture below is all the info I get. Now when I call it does say it was delivered to my address, again I know this was false. After a month though who knows where it was really delivered! So I open a claim...or should I say try the tracking information is false and doesn't exist?? Hmmm...but your system just told me it was delivered?? So I try to reach a real person...No luck . Well hey I think I am a blogger how about posting on their facebook?? I can't post pictures and just get referred to where I just was.
        Okay so I decide to suck it up and face the fact that I will never hear from this sponsor before who no doubt thinks that I have screwed them over and run off with their products and they got nothing out of it. Then I get a notification from My Choice for another package. I knew this one was coming so it was like cool I know when it will be here! So that day comes and I get another notification saying it has been rescheduled. sad face it is a fun product, but that is ok because I would rather know then not know right?? Well in the span of the next 3 days I received 4 additional notifications because apparently no one know WTF is going on over there. I go to the tracking information and the package has been in the same location for 4 days now! Keep in mind this location is only 6 hours DRIVING DISTANCE FROM ME! So UPS if it is my choice I will never use your service again.

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 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 After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

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.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back
