Where Does Life GO?

     Do you ever sit down at night and try to remember where the day went? You wake up, make breakfast, eat, and go about the day. Life throws obstacles in your way and you dodge them the best you can. Only at the end of the day to sit down and wonder what you even did that day. That is how I am feeling today.
     11 months ago we sat down and swore we wouldn't be here by now. Stuck in the same old rut, working, cooking, cleaning......living. Here I sit though, doing just that. Looking at how my life has changed...but how it only stays the same. Saving for our escape, and spending, hoping it is part of what is meant to be.
      Our journey out of here has taken so many twists and turns, and honestly I still hate this town with a pretty big passion. The neverending people, who pretend to be someone they are not. People who could care less about their children, or yours, while they educate our future. I sit and stare off into the "stuff", the stuff we own, that really owns us. Selling down 95% of our house has been.....interesting.....difficult......emotional. Heck I think I am down maybe 10% and I sit and look at my stuff, know I likely need none of it, but not being strong enough to let go of any of it.
     The month of June I am trying to awaken I suppose? Find me? Find the bottom of this depressing world we live in and bloom into something and someone I want to be. I'm not sure what is holding me back. Maybe it is the stuff, the people....it can't be this place because it is just pushing me away.

30 Day Beach Body Challenge- Day 3 #30dayfitness

Here we are at day 3, now unfortunately I am to sick to work out today but I wanted to make sure that I shared the information with you on how to do these exercises so that everyone could easily get their's done. I will catch up as I can, may even try to add extra to the days once I feel better. For today it is 50 burpees and 50 kick down crunches. If you don't know how to do these make sure to scroll down for directions! You will also see why with the flu these aren't doable.lol HOW TO DO A BURPEE!

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 out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
