September 2016 $50 Your Way #Giveaway!

Yikes! I got off to a slow start for the month of September! Seriously, how am I already behind?!?! For starters and for those that don’t ‘Do’ Facebook (it’s okay, I’m really not good at it either!) Five-year-old Alice started Kindergarten on Tuesday. It was rather stressful and did NOT start well. She didn’t want to smile for pictures, as the teacher opened the door the tears started. When kids started to file in the door Alice screamed “I CAN’T DO THIS!!!” It was heart wrenching!! (for the record it was Alice screaming that…. not me. I waited until I was in the car with the door closed)

Good news though!! When I picked her up after class (which by-the-way is at 12:59?!?) she was all smiles and said “Non, I LOVED IT!!” I asked how long before she knew she loved school? Her reply? 3 minutes.

  1. Gosh, what I wouldn’t give to have those days back again, even the cold sores. Tamra’s Mum, Michele & CJ’s husband/Dad and my Mum… stop it, stop it Kate, got to get in the shower & head into town before the rain starts. Yes, Ma’am!

  2. Let me tell you about my day. I wake up around 4 am. Start my shift at 5 and since I work retail it is hectic all day long. I sometimes want to cry but I smile and am grateful to have a job. This will be temporary until I get a career in nursing home adminitration.

  3. Another beautiful Autumn day here in Ireland so I got a bucket & went blackberry picking! I’ll use some in muffins and crumbles & freeze the rest – yum!

  4. My day is going ok, so far, so good. Actually made a real breakfast this morning French toast – it was supposed to be for later, but looked too good! gobble gobble!

  5. Well here we are again Friday.. where did this week go??? Well I plan on trying a new eggplant recipe today and then read and relax.. Happy weekend everyone….

  6. Yesterday we had a storm so I wasn’t able to do the outside chores I needed to do. It was a good thing because I caught up on some rest that I really needed. I am gonna do those chores today instead. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. glad the week and the month is almost over! My day wasn’t too bad today, a bit busy, but it makes the day go by quicker. And I even had pizza for supper ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. My day is going alright. The weather man said it was going to rain all week here in West Michigan but hey! The sun is out! ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s also pleasantly warm. I’m looking forward to the weekend. I hope you have a great weekend too!

  9. My day was ok. Its my birthday and husband had work all the day. The kids at school. No family around so I was on my own cleaning and such.

  10. My day is going well. Got my son off to school on time. Cleaned up the kitchen. Sitting, drinking a cup of coffee and reading my blogs before going on to the rest of my day.

  11. Laundry is finished.. also cleaned the bathrooms and the ds kitchen.. now here I am trying my level best to win an amazon gift card…

  12. Well, I’ve spent the day trying to figure out a new phone, lol. I am seriously not tech savvy. My 12 year old niece had to change my ringtones, text settings, etc., lol.

  13. I’m beginning to feel a wee bit better but this sinus headache is a right pain in the whatsit! Didn’t feel up to choir practice but I’ve got You Tube and the piano to keep my spirits up.

  14. It is just ok. I had an online food order, that is now in pieces, and partial charges, etc., and it is a mess. They don’t get it we don’t have the time to get a handful of items then spend 2 hours straightening it out, so you aren’t overcharged, and that is if you are lucky, as you have to talk to dunces on customer service.

  15. Very sunny day. Blue skies. I have some outside work to do. When I am done that I have paperwork to go over. I am never bored. LOL.

  16. I ended up going to the doctor today because I feel so bleh – she said my cough seems to be ‘reactive’ & has put me on new anti-histamines. Fingers crossed!

  17. Well, my youngest nephew spent the night here last night & he insists on letting out the sleeper sofa instead of sleeping in a spare bedroom, lol. He basically spent all of today lounging on his ‘bed’ & playing his tablet. Lazy bones! The rest of us spent the day walking around that bed. Ah, well, he’s the good kid…just a little spoiled by me & his Granny, ha!

  18. Today is Sunday… and I am sitting down and resting my ankle. I have some fun projects to do plus book reviews to write and post. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. The only thing I would like to say today is how grateful, thankful and appreciative I am for my life… Feeling so blest today…..I wish everyone could feel as great as I do…

  20. Going ok this morning, had bad afternoon after hearing bad news. But hopefully it won’t linger into tomorrow. Hope yours was good.

  21. Not too bad of a day today, Fall is definitely in the air! Spending the evening home with my daughter watching movies since she has a cold.

  22. Well, I’m still waiting for some Fall weather, ha! It’s the 24th & still in the high 80s here in KY. The weather guy is telling me this week it will get here, though. The highs will only be in the high 60s! Yay, time to make chili.

  23. So much for trying to get an early night. I was still awake at 4am with a temperature so I just switched off my alarm, cancelled any plans I’d made, took some paracetamol and stayed in bed most of the day.

  24. I’ve been feeling really tired all day & can’t seem to get my act together at all. I’ll try for an early night tonight; see if that helps.

  25. I feel a little tired. I gotta perk up though. My dad needs me to help move some stuff with us. It’s a bit heavy, so I am gonna need some energy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Dreary day, but every things good. Feeling better from all those sinus headaches we’ve been having. LOL we love to share things together even headaches. Hope you had a great day!

  27. The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day. I feel much better today than yesterday, still struggling a bit with my feet, but I was able to get some cardio in and I feel better for it. I have some work to do so I am gonna get to it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Well yesterday was my birthday so I stuck to my plan of doing as little as possible! Now of course I’m kicking myself because the laundry won’t get done in the rain BUT a courier just arrived with Mum’s wheelchair & I’m thrilled: it’s so much lighter than any I’ve come across before (I work with people with disabilities) and it means that soon we’ll be able to get out of the house! YAY US!!!!

  29. Not too bad of a day today, little late getting out of the office but managed to get some errands done and come home and relax. The weather was beautiful yesterday and today, so sorry to see Summer ending!

  30. I am pooped today after doing the garage area yesterday…. I have some eggplant parmesan in the oven and a glass of red wine ready for lunch time….Then a nap!!!!

  31. So far so good. Planning lunch then thinking of whats for dinner. My daughter has soccer practice tonight…laundry, dishes,ugh.

  32. I’m having some trouble with my ankle again, and I’m not motivated to do anything. I think I am gonna do more paperwork and lay off anything physically at least until I feel a little bit better.

  33. Today has been pretty quiet. I swear, nothing happened today, which is fine by me. If you have enough drama going on for a while, boring starts to feel good!

  34. Woo hoo! I got out this evening: my choir has started up again after the school holidays (most, including the musical director, are teachers). It felt so good to be able to sing again ‘cos at the moment, with Mum unwell, I’m kind of tip-toeing around the house.

  35. I’m a little tired today and I am trying to perk up. There’s a lot of things I would like to accomplish, and I need to have energy and focus to get them done.

  36. Doing ok, having problems with swallowing, but taking small siips keeps it from hurting so much going down. All is rainy, but good.

  37. It’s Monday and I am home resting. had some pizza from Dominos and am busy with my daughter planning her homecoming outfit for next month.

  38. Good swim class then off to Arby’s for the Bronco Deal since they got 2 touchdowns last night. And won the game (but Arby’s doesn’t care if they win, only if they get 2 touchdowns) (Connie cares if they win)

  39. I got a present of a big box of beautiful homegrown veggies so I’ve made soup all afternoon & it’s now potted up & in the freezer ready for when the evenings turn colder. ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Busy day today….. basil in the garden so bottles of pesto to make… have the milk ready to make yoghurt…..have some fresh bok choy to cut up and saute.. and bathing the dogs! Why am I sitting behind this computer!!!!!

  41. It’s Monday morning and I don’t feel like getting up and facing the day… but I have a lot to do so I better get to it! ๐Ÿ™‚

  42. I’m old and tired. I want to have a higher education but I’m poor and if I study, I can’t work. If I work, I don’t have time to study.

    1. Try it Mai! Honestly, it can be done. I got my Master’s Degree at age 50 whilst working full time. I just didn’t do any housework!

  43. Well it rained all day but I had to go shopping as this was the only time my sister could come over to take over looking after Mum. It was what we call in Ireland ‘soft’ rain, you know that misty sort? Anyway, by the time I got home my hair had gone all curly!

  44. I love Sunday! Gonna sit and read a book, and I also plan to review some. I am very behind in book reviewing. Need to catch up on that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  45. Sunday glorious Sunday.. After mass I plan on chilling all day.. a nice Italian Sunday dinner and the thought of relaxing and listening to music and reading…

  46. Already Sunday, why do the days of the week go quickly when you don’t work than when you do. Never have been able to figure that out. Hope your weekend is going great. Have a peaceful Sunday.

  47. Well, it has rained all day. At least I had no place to be, so I didn’t have to get out in it. I just stayed in & watched TV, played computer games & tried to stick to my diet.

  48. Ploughing through tons of laundry but at least the weather’s fine. Today we’re buying Mum a wheelchair so she can get outside a bit easier.

  49. Got my work done, and did my workout and struggled through. I wish I could lose weight by relaxing on my couch eating a klondike bar! lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

  50. I was reading in bed early this morning & must have dozed off because the book fell to the floor waking me. I stretched down to get it from underneath and lo & behold; there was a dead bird under the bed. A little prezzy from the black cat who still has no name! Great start to my day ๐Ÿ™

  51. My day at work was super hectic, but I left an hour early to take my daughter to the eye dr. so she could get fitted for glasses… hoping your day was good!

  52. Had my yearly exam at the dermatologist and everything was AOK. Then off to be a taste tester where I got lots of yummy chicken and a $30 gift card.

  53. Ugh! Along with a face full of cold sores I’ve now got a sinus infection. I bought a sinus wash that my sister recommended so hopefully that will help. Other than that I’ll just have to go around with a bag over my head!

  54. Waiting for my national language test result is such a pain. I know I did good but the long wait makes me doubt myself if I even pass.

  55. Well, it’s early in the morning to say how my day is going… since it’s just starting. But I expect another hectic day at the office, and then going to go grocery shopping and do some laundry when I get home! The work never ends, lol.

  56. It’s been just an average day. Not much going on until the kids got home from school. Then, I argued with my oldest nephew until he did his homework (Argh! Like pulling teeth. He could do it 3 times in the time I spend telling him to do it!) After they went home, just watching TV & doing nothing, lol.

  57. I walked up to Dad’s grave today to put some fresh flowers there & give it a bit of a tidy up. He’s been neglected lately but the living come first.

  58. It is nice weather to walk to town for errands. I have to remember this day in January when the wind is howling and blowing me around!

  59. My day isn’t too bad, finally relaxing at home after a long day of work. I work in fuel assistance and with the colder weather it is getting very busy!

  60. I woke up with that awful tingling sensation in my lips that heralds the arrival of cold sores so I’m slapping on as much lotion as I can. I never had them till late last year when out of the blue they started. Since then I’ve had four attacks and each time is worse, especially inside my mouth.

  61. I managed to get someone to sit with Mum for an hour this evening while I dashed into town to top up the pantry, other than that nothing much happening.

  62. Sunday again.. the start of another week.. where does the time go?? The children are back in school and soon the weather will get cooler….Everyone have a great and glorious Sunday!

  63. It is so nice outside today! It stormed really bad last night and cooled it off. I am not hurting as bad today but really tired. Ready for Monday to come, hate to say it, so they fix this kidney stone.

  64. Oh, the joys of living in the countryside! The kitten arrived home this afternoon with a rabbit that was almost as big as itself. I managed to rescue it & to my surprise it was alive! I popped it into the cat carrier & covered it with a blanket to let it rest then took it with me when I walked up to the graveyard to visit Dad and released it. One happy bunny!

  65. Good swim class today, but fewer than usual people. Then to Arby’s for the Bronco deal since they got 2 touchdowns last night.

  66. Laundry? I refuse do any if it’s raining and we’ve been hit by the end of Hurricane Hermine so it’s piling up just in time for the weekend ๐Ÿ™

  67. I woke up feeling really good this morning and it has been a very productive day so far. I plan to get a lot done so I can enjoy my weekend. I just saw someone comment the word “laundry”. Shh…haha

  68. Oh, boy, up early tomorrow to get Mom’s oxygen ready for a visit to the dentist. I really should go to bed, but I know I’m not sleepy enough to actually fall asleep. Story of my life: not sleepy at bedtime, too sleepy in the morning.

  69. Mum got out of bed today! She made it to the living room with just a stick and is now worn out & heading for bed. Onwards & upwards (fingers crossed!).

  70. My day is going good. I’m feeding the sparrows tiny treats they will take it out of my hand, but instead I put a sunflower seed near me and they come and get it. I have some popcorn, too, husks removed, but they like the sunflowers best.

  71. Had to get up early to help Mom get her portable oxygen ready for a trip to the doctor, so I’ve spent the day feeling draggy & tired. Basically, I’m just waiting for bedtime, lol.

  72. Same old, same old here in my little corner of Ireland. Essentially just looking after Mum but we had a power cut this afternoon so I went back to bed & slept for 2 hours!

  73. We put our 10 year old Golden Retriever down on Monday and this is my first day off all alone in the house without her. Our hearts are broken but so many beautiful memories of this awesome dog! Hope everyone has a good week!

  74. It was a regular workday but pretty smooth and uneventful, so not a bad day. I seem to have a cold, but the weather was warm so it wasn’t hard to get through the day at work. I probably would have called in sick if it was cold or rainy.

  75. Had my 6 week infusion. Slept through most of it. Then went to Smashburger for a Truffle Mushroom Swiss burger and a Salted Caramel shake. Yummm.

  76. Well we had a lot of rain last night and I thought today we would be rain free but no.. it has been on and off rain all morning long….going to sit and read for awhile before lunch

  77. the day started out beautiful with lots of sunshine, now there is a lot of rain, thunder and lightning. I am curled up in my bed listening to music.

  78. Thank Heavens! Mum’s foot appears to be a bit better. She even managed to get to the bathroom unaided today. I’m so relieved; she really should be up and about by now.

  79. Well, today was a slow day & tomorrow being Labor Day, it will feel like a repeat of Sunday, ha! Well, at least it’s going to be a nice day weather-wise. I feel for those waiting on that hurricane.

  80. My day is going great so far. I woke up late though. ๐Ÿ™‚ My sons and neighbors are playing outside and the weather is great.

  81. I’m glad there is no storm just yet anyway but I’m freezin! I’m handfeeding some sparrows some organic sunflower seeds – lucky them, fun!

  82. Had a great day yesterday and today will just be a relaxing day.. feeling worried for all my family and friends who live in the path of hurricane Hermine

  83. I’m having another one of those days where I feel uncomfortable in my own skin, feeling like I need to make big life changes but not sure what. I think this goes back to the recent death in the family. When that happens, you start to question your own existence.

      1. Oh, I won’t. I’m not even sure what I want to change! It goes from ‘I need to lose weight’ to ‘I have to change my entire life’ to ‘Maybe I’ll get a new haircut!’ Yeah, I’m all over the place…but at least I’m aware of what’s causing it. That’s something.

  84. Had a great day with the family. We had a barbecue, which I always enjoy. I didn’t do all that much today. I feel a little tired physically.

  85. I’ve had a bit of a hotch-potch day. Mum’s foot has been really sore & we were getting worried so called the Care Doc (an out-of-hours medical service). She listened to the symptoms but as she couldn’t get to the house for at least 2 hours she said she’d call an ambulance. She was afraid it might be a clot forming. Anyway, long story short, Mum got really upset, no way was she going to hospital etc. When the paramedics arrived they did various tests and determined that it could be a localised infection & to keep an eye on it for the next 24 hours. Fingers crossed!

  86. Waking up, drinking coffee, and paying bills. Relaxed day today…if I can avoid my alcoholic neighbor who keeps wanting money for Vodka.

  87. My day went pretty good. I was at work and realized just how long my to-do list is, but the weather was beautiful and I had a great lunch with a great friend!

  88. My day has been rainy. Here in eastern N.C. we are waiting for the storm to pass through and hopefully on it’s way out tomorrow morning.

  89. My day is going OK. I loved reading this post it reminded me of when we were little. I actually threw up first day of first grade, and the girl I threw up on became my best friend. For kindgergarten, I was very worried because I did not know how to skip and everyone else did.

  90. I’ve had a very frustrating day. Mum has announced that now she’s hurt her foot so can’t get out of bed at all and is getting despondent. I just want to scream!!!

  91. I’m sooo glad Alice enjoyed kindergarten! I had a so-so kind of day. Had a hard time getting motivated, but I adjusted. You kind of have to, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  92. Today my day is wonderful I have my beautiful granddaughter her with me and she is so sweet! She is only 9 months so she has me hopping!

  93. My day is starting out with a smile thanks to your sweet story about Alice! Kids are so great and self-expressed ๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t we all sometimes want to scream I CAN’T DO THIS! ?
