Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty

Soft kitty, warm kitty Little ball of fur

Happy kitty, sleepy kitty Purr, purr, purr
Hopefully Chuck Lorre and CBS forgive me for my (possible) copyright infringement.  Okay, I admit it, I let Michael talk me into getting a cat.  But it wasn't my fault!  He took me to these peoples house, and they handed me an adorable kitty that can easily fit in my hands and is only like 5-6 weeks old (poor thing was abandoned by his mama cat).  What was I supposed to do?  So now we have a cat and a dog.  My dog is not super impressed by this and is having a panic attack that she can't get at the kitty.  But when we let her out (while we held onto her) we couldn't tell if she wanted to give it puppy kisses or eat it for dinner...  So we thought it best not to find out.  She did give it a nice bath through the bars of the kennel though. 

And just to give you an idea of how tiny she is, here is a picture of her next to an outlet.


We are deciding between two names, Violet and Rosie (our …

How To Earn Spare Change Online Without Spending a Penny or Getting Out of Your Pajamas (Part 2)

Yesterday I shared three of my favorite sites for earning money and/or gift cards.

Click here to see yesterday's post

Today I will share with you another awesome place to earn!  I know these posts sound like a stupid scam, but I promise I have gotten great rewards from all of these places, and they are not giving me anything to share these with you.  Well unless you sign up and are sweet enough to list me as a referral (which I hope you do!).  I planned on listing three more today, but will end up making this a trilogy in the near future :)  But like the original trilogy, not the prequels.

Recyclebank:
Recyclebank is a website that encourages "green" or eco-friendly living.  You earn points by taking quizzes, learning about recycling, or in some areas you can even earn money BY RECYCLING!  It is pretty awesome and you can learn some interesting information.  They do not pay cash, but they give you points, which can be spend on coupons, gift cards, or magazine subscription…

How To Earn Spare Change Online Without Spending a Penny or Getting Out of Your Pajamas (Part 1)

Everyone spends way to much time online right?  Okay, maybe just me, but everyone could use more money right?  I have made TONS of money online (please note that I think paying more than $10 for a pair of jeans is outrageous and therefore our ideas of "TONS of money" might vary), and am going to share with you where I have done that!

Keep in mind that this stuff is INCREDIBLY easy to do and therefore doesn't pay well.  But it does pay, either in gift cards, cash, or rewards.  If you sign up for any of these services, could you please say that I referred you (I'll give you my user name/email address/referral link) so I can get some extra points or money.

ChaCha:
ChaCha is a service that lets people text questions and then "guides" answer the questions.  The pay is practically nothing (literally 2 cents a question), but you can run the application in a tab while you do whatever you usually do on the internet (like Facebook or Pinterest) and when a question co…

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…

On a Sewing Binge!

My craft room was finally in somewhat useable condition, and Michael has bought me an iron, so it was high time to get sewing!  I never just sew one thing, so I have actually made three things this week.  All of them are for the little girl that I baby-sit, because I grow a bit weary of making baby clothes for imaginary babies.  Since we are in the process of getting certified to be foster parents I might have a baby to sew for soon, albeit temporarily, but since I have no idea of the age/gender of child(ren) we will get placed its kind of a shot in the dark as to what to make.  I don't much like sewing for myself because I am a bit deformed when it comes to my body shape, so stuff doesn't necessarily fit me well unless its made of stretch knits, which I kind of hate to work with.  Well I have actually only tried once, but it was a disaster and I gave up on them.  Plus clothes for me take a lot more fabric which means it is more expensive if it turns out like garbage. Anyways…

Abortion - Flashback Friday

Additions to the original post will be in pink :)  Please, please, please keep in mind that I WILL NOT publish anything that is disrespectful to me, my readers, or my religion.

I was inspired to write about this controversial topic because of a post on Birth Without Fears Facebook page. Usually I attempt to be civil, polite, respectful and courteous when I discuss this (or other controversial) topic(s), but since this is my blog I am going to say what I think and why I think it. I won't insult people, or call people names, but I won't sugarcoat it either. Not that I think it will be a problem, but I won't publish comments that are insulting. I only have 16 followers, but I want to warn you ahead of time.  I think I have 53 followers now!

I think that abortion is wrong. Plain and simple.
I don't care if you* got raped. Two wrongs do NOT make a right. Just because someone did something horrible to you doesn't mean you should kill an innocent person. If you do…

Dressing Like a Girl - Flashback Friday

Additions to the original post will be in pink :)

"A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God." (Deuteronomy 22:5, NKJV throughout)

Do you realize that you can get off an airplane in any country in the world, and if they do not speak English and you do not know their language, you will know which bathroom you were supposed to go to. Go in an airport terminal, go to the bathroom and you will see a picture on the bathroom door. It doesn't matter if you are in Russia, France, Portugal, the United States or Mexico, there will be a sign on the door it will have a picture on it. It will either have a picture of someone in slacks or someone in a skirt. Now, if you are a lady, which of those two doors will you walk through? And if you are a man, which of those two doors will you walk through? I doubt that even the rankest feminist would walk into the bathroom that w…
