Winner of the Book Giveaway!!

The winner of the book giveaway is.... drumroll..............................................................

Congrats! Please email me your info so I can get the book out to you! angelsdream76 @ yahoo . com . Just shoot me an email please.

This week has been hectic! Oh my God is all I can say! I finished with my last class for this term, Behaviorial Health, a combination of psychology, sociology and anthropology. My last paper came back as passing on Tuesday! What a sweet relief it is. Next term starts in May. I just have to decide which classes I want to take. No Math, please no Math.

Things are not so good at my husband's work. In fact they just outright suck booty!! He's worked there for 6 years. Hasn't gotten a raise in almost 4 years. He is the jack of all trades in this company. He gets called at 3 in the morning to take care of things, is the first one to volunter to do maintanence windows, swapped positions recently just so they could keep 2 people without firing anybody. It just seems like they are taking advantage of him. Somethings that recently happened are seriously having him considering openly searching for another job.

Oh well... it's just life....

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Congrats again to the winner.

Stay tuned for another giveaway.

Forget Me Not Book Tour and Giveaway!

Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze is an edge of your sear thriller. A crisis center owner, Benjamin Brandt's world is turned upside down by the murder of his wife and son. Ben loses his faith and questions why. The only thing that keeps him going is to find out who killed his family and why.
When a mysterious woman who looks just like his deceased wife and is carrying his wife's necklace shows up at the crisis center,  the mystery gets even stranger and deeper. It becomes a dangerous situation for both Ben and the woman now known as Karen.
This is a book that you will not be able to put down! I know I couldn't. I had to find out how it would end.
This is a book about faith lost and faith kept.

I was given a copy of this book to review by and I have one to giveaway.

Rain rain

How was everyone's Easter or Passover? We went to church, had a wonderful service and then headed out to the husband's parents house for dinner. Yummy ham, turkey and the fixins. YUM! Wish I had some of those leftovers to chow down on!

We are still praying and believing for this job opportunity back home. (My home) I just need my family during this time in my life. I need someone that can go with my to doctor's appointments, instead of my husband having to take off work to go with me. Or just to be there for support.

I'm really hurting this morning. I don't know if it is the weather or what. But my chest feels like someone is squeezing my lungs. I've used my inhalers, used my oxygen, but it's still hurting. I've even heated up the rice sock to use. Nothing is working. *Sigh*

It might be stress. Lots of things going on in the house. Problems with the teen, just back talking, lying about school work, etc...
Worried about money, worried about health...

But I know it will all get better. It will, nothing lasts forever.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and hope your week is awesome.

April Fool's Day

All day long, I've been looking around, just waiting for something to have been done. I carefully tasted the sugar in the bowl before putting some in my coffee. I checked the kitchen sprayer before turning on the water. I looked at door knobs suspiciously before touching them. All in preperation for something. Some joke pulled on me by my 2 jokester daughters.
I've even been looking at my friend's tweets and facebook status a bit sideways. Ya never know. Is it truth or a joke?

When I was a kid, I loved April Fools day. I would put salt in the sugar bowl, tape the kitchen sprayer and put vaseline on the door knobs. I kinda got in some trouble for going overboard.
A few years ago, me and the husband told the girls I was pregnant. They fell for it hook, line and sinker. Never laughed so hard in my life. I don't know what was funnier, their looks of disbelief about having a "baby brother or sister" or realizing their parents have sex!

The one I am really worried about pulling a prank is Mary, the youngest. She is a bit devious. This morning I said "Happy April Fools Day."
She kind of gave me that "I'm thinking of doing something bad" grin. And said "Hey Mom, SNAKE!"

I'm terrified of snakes. I don't mean just a little "ewww... they're slimey, weird." I mean full on panic attack, almost faint, can't see them on tv or even see a fake plastic toy one! I will flip out!

I'm afraid she will bring home a fake one and I will end up passing slap out! God help me!
