Facing a New....Reality....?

    It’s insane to think that two weeks ago life went on in its own hectic. We rushed about from work and back. We hit the gym, then the store.....waking up before 5 am every day to start the cycle again. The kids thankfully were on spring break, which only really meant one less stop on this crazy train.
    Slowly a new virus started to push our way....I don’t think life got slower at that point. Perhaps more surreal would be a better explanation of it. We still did the things we normally did, but maybe with a bit more precaution. We wiped our machines down at the gym a bit more, we washed our hands and extra time but life went on. Then the schools announced they were closing for three weeks......ok we’ve homeschooled before we will do what we can. We awaited word of work closing, but, whether by the grace of God or bad luck work went on. The environment was odd to say the least. Everyone taking added precautions to ensure their own health. Nerves were short, tension was so thick we could cut it with a knife. Our jobs began to lay-off and thankfully, to save us financial stress, we were both considered essential employees.
      So every day now we still sit and watch new cases pop up across the country. People dying, families suffering both physically, emotionally, and financially. We are left with more free time working nearly half of what I had been in a month I decided maybe it is time to start blogging again. We are told this could last through summer! So instead of being in denial it is time to start facing our new reality.
    Today we will be setting up our rv for an emergency quarantine location, if heaven forbid one of us should fall ill. What are you doing during this time? How are you doing?

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 …

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days.

She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
