The 7 Deadly Sins

The nerdy part of me couldn't resist using this picture...
I've tried doing series before and failed (I am a quitter after all), but maybe this time I will actually finish something.  I'm not going to do them all in a row probably, because I am easily distracted and I don't want to get to repetitive.

The Seven Deadly Sins are not actually listed in the Bible, and I think they are  more of a Catholic idea, but I also think that they are sins that everyone struggles with to some degree.

Please remember I am NOT a pastor, theologian, or even very Bible literate.  Usually my religious discussions involve "the Bible says some where" and I couldn't tell you the verse if my life depended on it.  However, I do like to learn things, and see how they might apply to my life, and I will pass them on to you as best as I understand them.

Sometimes I might say controversial things, and you are welcome to state your opinion on them.  If you cannot be respectful and tolerant of my morals and beliefs I will NOT publish your comment and might just block your from commenting.  I don't know where these posts will end up, but I just want to get that out of the way.  I am pretty sure that none of my friends will insult me, but the internet is a big place and Full Metal Alchemist is pretty popular with nerdy folk, so who knows who might end up on this post!  This is my safe little corner of the internet, and I don't want anyone ruining it for me :)

In case you don't know (and I might not, in which case I will look it up) the seven deadly sins are:
  • Greed
  • Sloth
  • Gluttony
  • Envy
  • Lust
  • Wrath
  • Vanity - turns out its Pride, my bad
I remembered them all, but then I double checked.  Turns out vanity was wrong, its actually pride.  But an image search shows that vanity is sometimes listed instead of pride, so I guess it just depends on who you ask...

Hopefully I can do a decent job on these mini Bible studies and not be to boring or preachy...

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Review - Seven Everyday Slings

I got this sling because it was free, I only had to pay shipping.  Since I bought it, I have found out that it is VERY easy to find codes for this to be free, and I am pretty sure that if you ever pay full price for one you got duped.

I was SO excited.  I wanted a baby carrier really bad.  I didn't have a baby, but I am always collecting baby things.

In case you were thinking that I only review things that I like, I HATE THIS SLING! 

I have used it with tiny babies, older babies, and toddlers. 

Pros:
- Adorable, and available in a variety of colors
- Lightweight and compact, you can easily throw it in a diaper bag or purse
- Works from birth - 35 lbs


Cons:
- Terrifying to use with small babies.  They sink down in it, and its almost impossible to keep them from having their chin tucked to their chest, which is a huge no-no in baby carrying.  Basically when I had Cooper in it as an infant I spent the entire trip to the park making sure he was still breathing, then I started sticki…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…
