Salsa and Tortilla Chips

A Healthy Quick Snacking Idea


Our family all agrees on eating Salsa and Chips for their snack. The kids absolutely love this and so do we. Adding a touch of Queso Dip to the salsa is a added bonus for the kids. But be careful Queso isn’t the healthest but the not the worse either.

I recently watched the movie Avatar without really realizing all of the hype surrounding it the years before it was released in theaters. Plus, when it was finally released and was the #1 movie in the world I still didn't even pay attention because of my misunderstanding of the movie. Avatar was created and imagined through the eyes of Oscar winning director James Cameron.

My Life with MS

For those who may not know MS is Multiple Sclerosis. This lovely disease in simpler terms is a disease that destroys the pathways of communication on the spinal cord and brain. Lesions are formed and the results are several different symptoms. With MS, the body’s own immune system is attacking our normal tissue. MS is the leading disabling neurological disease in the US & the cause is still unknown and as of this time, there is no cure.

Celebrity Fit Club

This episode, in my opinion, is leading up to something big as you could tell in the upcoming show previews. I just don’t understand why anyone would go on a show, knowing its weight lost program and blatantly ignore the program? If someone said here are all these experts and you can lose weight if you listen to what they tell you, I would listen to every single word. These people are given tools that some of us are never given. It’s beyond me and I really don’t understand why it’s so hard to listen? Plus, hello you signed up for weight lose show so if you’re not going to obey the rules what’s the point. Do they really want to lose weight or are they doing it for the exposure the show brought?


One question I would love the answer to is why they have alcohol at the boot camp?

Parents with Disabilities

One important thing I would love to focus on with this section of my blog is vacationing and the accommodations. I would love to hear from you about the positive experiences you have had while vacationing. From my experience, while searching the internet, there are not enough places that focus on the great places that give consideration to people who have disabilities. I would love to hear from you.

I will also be posting about life and parenting with disabilities.

I hope you enjoy and please don’t feel shy to post. I love reading about people and their views on life.

Hooked On Phonics Review

If you are like me and have no clue how to teach your children the fundamentals of learning, I have the perfect product for you. My goals are to teach my son and not just let the school/teacher teach him. I want to be involved and hopefully influence a love of learning. I could be a career college student because I love school so much. When I look at my son, the blank canvas I had no clue and no idea where to start. I always wanted thing to be a certain way when I had kids but you have to have the tools for them to be the way you want them.

Recipes for Play-Doh


There are several different versions to making Play-Doh and here are a few I like.

Pappy's Original Kraut & Meatballs

First, thank you so much Misty for giving me this awesome recipe. Misty’s Pappy made this while she was growing up and passed it on to her. I was extremely hesitant the first time I tried this but I am so glad I did. If you like Sauerkraut and meatballs you will love this recipe. I always ate my kraut with pork not hamburger so with this came the doubt. Pappy was from Czechoslovakia so is this recipe. Just try it you will enjoy it.

Why I Love McCormick’s

So we all get lazy and don’t want to slave over a freaking stove for hours. I know it’s so much fun cooking for hours after a long day. Well, I as a lazy person love McCormick’s Seasoning because it rocks. Never has anything ever turned out bad that I have made with McCormick’s and it’s so, so easy.

So I Stopped Smoking


Now What


I have been smoke free for over a year now. Pat on the back for me yayayaya….So how did I, a person with zero will power, stop smoking? Simple and you may want to read this next sentence over a few times so you get it. One thought (well maybe more than one), How In The Hell Can A Little Piece of Freaking Tobacco Have That Much Power Over Me. For God’s sakes it doesn’t even talk let alone have a freaking brain. It controls what I do when I get up, after I eat, when I’m bored, and the list goes on for the rest of the day. Really think about it a piece of freaking tobacco has that much power over my brain. Oh yeah it has a say in when I may die wow crazy huh? That right there was my motivation to take back my power over my body.
