Why My Husband is a Real Dad

   

        My blog has been around for a while now, and I have tried to be as upfront as possible. Some of you have known me for years, while others have just found their way to my blog. I won't lie the only time my ex husband crosses my mind any more is when my bank statement comes. It is like playing the lottery, you are always hopeful for a little bit of money, but let's face it the odds.......pretty low. Today my ex mother in law found her way to commenting on my blog facebook page. I don't mean to sound like a heartless bitch, but stop telling me how much you miss us, what a great granny you will be, how much MY boys "dad" misses them. Tomorrow marks my 9 year divorceiversary, and honestly as each day passes I am more and more grateful that he is out of my life. Never looked back, never regretted it. I mean how could I? 

       Anyways with Father's Day coming up I am reminded more and more today why I love my husband, the father to my 3 children! My husband has been a friend for so many years, that when our lives collided in another way it all just melted into a perfect family. I love my husband because from day 1 neither him or his family treated my 2 children from my first marriage any different. They were his babies, their grandbabies, their nephews, nothing more and nothing less. He held them when they cried, changed their diapers, helped me potty train them, read them bed time stories, and healed their wounds.

       We were soon a family of 5 and his blessing never left and our love has only grown. Together we make memories, happy and sad, scary and blissful. There are no late nights hanging with his buddies, coming in drunk, or yelling. My husband is one of the most selfless men I know :) he has supported me in every way, in any thing. He would give everything he had to make me us happy. His last penny for the kids to go on a field trip, working 23 hours straight to make sure we can do something we wanted to do together. I don't think I could ever put into words just exactly what he means to this family, as a father, lover, provider, as my best friend :)

       Remember as Father's Day approaches being a dad is more than just DNA, being a dad is putting your heart in soul into loving a child, DNA has nothing to do with being a real father.

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

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 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.
