A Phone that can Dance?

I have never seen a phone that does as much as the VTech LS5145. It has the ability to sync with your cell phone using bluetooth connectivity! Now that's one sweet feature.
Another cool thing is that there is an intercom system built into the phone and this would be a feature that I would use all the time. We have a two story home and this would definitely come in handy. The more I read that this phone could do the more amazed I was. The best part is , over at "Mom Fuse" they are giving away this little wonder of a phone~!!!! So Go check out the site and while your there enter to win.

Snot Your Average Wipe~!

Ok first things first. I'm a subscriber to "Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls" and when I received an email about this giveaway for "Boogie Wipes " I just had to check out what she was blogging about. Well come to find out these are wipes for stuck on Boogies (mucus) caused by the common cold & allergies,With added saline, they offer quick, gentle, effective relief and can you believe it they smell like GRAPE! These are a must have as far as I'm concerned if you have little ones that hate to wipe their nose. It makes me wonder what took so long for someone to invent these things. If you have children or grand children then you should check it out and enter while your there.

Sick Sick Sick

Well I was lucky enough to escape being in bed during Christmas due to being sick but I'm making up for it now. I have been in bed on and off since Friday with bronchitis,sinus infection, ear infection and high fevers. I'm so glad I made it until the 26th without being sick but I am suppose to take the kids to their grand parents which is a tradition we do every year. All the grand kids go to gram and gramps the Sunday following Christmas for a big get together and to have a tree there and yet I am so sick I haven't been up more than 2hrs at a time and I think the worse is yet to come. I am burning up with fever but yet shivering from being cold not to mention my head feels like it's going to explode any minute. It's definitely no fun. I am so dreading tomorrow. I may have to take them over drop them off and go home to bed and have them call when they want to come home. I don't want to expose everyone so they end up sick to not to mention we have a brand new grand baby that was born Dec 24th that will be there. I don't want that poor baby exposed to this. Scott was in his glory holding his first born grand baby. He looked scared holding her on the video but proud as a peacock at the same time~!

Warm Little Mouse

I have R.A and with the cold weather here living in Maine is sure hard on my joints and I have no circulation in my hands and feet from R.A so I'm always cold. I have a heater under my PC desk to keep my feet warm but my hands are still always cold and they have a mouse that will keep your hand warm while surfing the web. This is the neatest idea and over at "Living Life One Day At A Time" they are having a giveaway for one of these hot little items~! Hop on over and check out her site and this giveaway by clicking the link below.

Giving Back~

I just came back from reading a terrific blog at Jessica Knows. It's all about Giving Back and Paying it forward. What is a little ironic is one of my all time favorite movies is "Paying It Forward" And I always thought if the whole world thought like that what a wonderful place this would be. In my opinion there are takers and their are givers in this world and I'm glad I am a giver.This is my chance to pay it forward with the help from Jessica Knows and Libby's. They are having a wonderful giveaway for $300 which you can keep $150 and you get to pick what charity you would like to give the other $150 to. This is a great way to give back to your community or or to help a struggling charity. I live in a small town and unfortunately the down is 400,000 in debt and the school system and local food banks are struggling to keep going. My parents volunteer to pick up the food and transport it back to the local food bank and help deliver food to needy families and I have in the past been the volunteer treasurer until they could find someone more permanent. I work away from home and I'm gone 10hrs a day and with school functions with the kids I just don't have the time to volunteer any longer on a regular basis but this would give me a way to still help them out. I would love to donate the $150 to the local Tri Town Food Cupboard. If you would like to Pay It Forward to a charity check out Jessica Knows wonderful site by clicking on the link below. Hope this holiday found you and your family a healthy and happy holiday season~!

Somethings are not meant to be

I had such great plans for this weekend but somethings are just not meant to be. I had planned on finishing my Christmas Shopping on Saturday and wrap all day during the winter storm on Sunday. When I drove 45min to the nearest shopping centers in Waterville ME and bought one item and discovered that my debit card froze do to a limit of access that is a security feature I was unaware of. That was the end of my shopping. Now if I had realized that this security feature existed I would of drove to the bank that morning and did a withdrawal but who knew (not me obviously). I was really disappointed because I really wanted to finish the shopping since I knew I couldn't on Sunday do to the storm.( I should of know this was just the beginning of what was to come because that is just my kind of luck) What a horrible weekend we have had. First of all Remember the freezer full of nice Deer Meat I was so excited about having in my freezer from Octobers post, well it no longer exist. Last night at around 11pm I discovered the freezer had some how ended up unplugged. $600 of meat gone to waste and what a mess. We only get in the freezer about once a month to restock the freezer over the frig and it had been about 2 weeks since we last opened the freezer. The freezer is located in my laundry room and when I was getting ready for bed I went into the laundry room to put the dirty cloths in the laundry and noticed a fowl smell and I immediately knew what that smell was. I whirled around to look at the light on the front of the freezer and it was not on!!!!
I couldn't believe it. With the price of meat today this was a huge loss for my family. I have a relative in the meat business and he gave me a heads up that the meat prices were about to go through the roof and told me if I could I better stock up so that is exactly what we did. We ordered a huge meat package and he vacuumed sealed it all so nice so there would be no freezer burn waste. Then we got a deer in October so the freezer was full to the top. We were all set for the winter. Now I did save about $200 on the meat since 10 days after I bought it even hamburger jumped a $1 a pound. But now that we have lost it all. I ended up not only loosing all that I had invested but now I have to pay top dollar for my meat all winter. The freezer smelled so bad we had to remove it from the house. We cleaned and cleaned it but I think it is going to take some time to completely get rid of the smell. We removed the top door of the freezer and dumped 3 box's of baking soda in it and put it in the garage until spring.(Did you notice I kept saying we removed the freezer and we cleaned and cleaned the freezer well actually it was Scott doing all that while I was spending most of the time gagging in the bathroom) I am not going to even try to use it this winter. One, I can't afford to replace the meat especially at the prices today and two, it was such a job to get it to the garage to start with since we are in the mist of a blizzard of the century here in maine. My floors are a mess from tracking back and forth with bucket of hot water and soap and tracking the snowy shoes in and out. Not to mention in order to get the freezer out we had to remove the continents of the laundry room. I live in a small apartment and the freezer has been there for many years and the only way to get it out is to remove everything else in the room. So my kitchen was a
wreck , my living room couch was now a holding place for all the cloths on hangers and the recliner for holding the clean laundry that had just been washed and needed to be sorted and taken care of. My whole house was just a disaster area. After 8hrs of cleaning the freezer and the mess the house is almost put back together. The key word is almost. I still need to do all the floors. It isn't happening today because i have had it!!! And just think since we were in the middle of having what the weather man calls "The Storm of the Century" the worse blizzard in 10yrs or more and I had planned to wrap all day today and be ready for the holidays for the first time in years. Needless to say no wrapping is done and I'm in no mood to do it( I can't imagine why) lol lol All I can say is I hope everyones weekend was a lot better than mine. HO HO HO Happy Holidays (ya right)

One project closer~!

One project closer is having an outrageous giveaway right now for a tool we could use desperately.I wish we had this 5yrs ago even because we are currently building a new home. We have been renting for the past 25yrs and it will be so nice to own our home. Scott is a carpenter by trade and I took 4yrs of industrial tech so we decided that a dream could come true with a lot of hard work and even more patience if we built it ourselves. We have been building for 5yrs buying materials each week with what ever we could afford out of our pay checks. We have the 2 1/2 story building shell completed and are now working on the inside. We just recently purchased a lift of V-Match which is expensive.We had to save for a few weeks in order to come up with the money for the lift but it will be worth it once we get it installed. Now the giveaway has a "Track Saw Combo Kit" they are giving away and the is a tool that takes the place of a table saw. It is the coolest little rig I have seen on the market for some time and it would of saved us a lot of time when we were constructing the shell of the house for sure. This Track Saw Combo Kit is put out by Dewalt and if you or a family member knows anything about tools you know that this is a great brand. This tool weights around 20lbs so this makes it easily portable compared to moving a table saw from one project to another. If you want to learn more about this tool go to this awesome site and check it out.

Taste The Fizz~!

Oh my I just got to have this new invention. I just came from a cool site that is having a great giveaway for a Soda Machine. This thing is awesome. It saves you money. It saves the planet. It saves you space. It makes over 25 flavors~! My favorite is Cream Soda which I couldn't believe they even have my favorite since some stores don't even carry Cream Soda any more. If you like sparkling water they have that too. Diabetic no worries because Diet flavors are sugar-free and sweetened with Splenda® brand sweetener and contain no aspartame. I have to lug soda through the woods and up a mountain every weekend and it's heavy. This would solve my lugging problem for sure. Each economy-sized bottle of sodamix makes 12 liters of fresh soda and that's a lot of Soda. So is this awesome or what~! Want to check it out click on the button below to check out this fantastic site and giveaway.
