Stolen Identity On Facebook

I was listening to talk radio today. Yes, I listen to it a lot! You can learn a lot from talk radio. Anyway - So this woman author decides to get on to facebook after not really wanting to for a long time. She decides that she is going to join because her colleges are pressuring her and assuring her that she can get more readers this way. After what I think was a couple months had gone by she received a direct message from her friend. He was telling her that the kind of page that she had created was inappropriate and not something that was smiled upon. Also he reminded her that the pages were not private and that everyone could see what she was displaying. He then left her a link to this page. She clicked on it and what she found horrified her. Someone had set up an account with her picture as the avatar and her full name. However instead of selling her books they were acting as if she were selling herself for sex. She called it "trolling for sex". I guess in some of the personal pictures of her they had taken her head and photo shopped it onto a half naked womans body. She said she felt like her whole world had been flipped upside down. She said her friends were treating her different and her books were not selling much anymore. She was devastated. She said she felt like she understood how these children felt when they were cyber bullied. She was constantly worried if people were reading it and what they were thinking. She complained but it took facebook a very long time to get it off. She did in the end find out who was behind it and it happened to be KIDS.

Of course I cut that story very short but can you imagine!? So make sure you google your name every once in a while to see what all is out there!

I also listened to a story about this woman who was raised by a civil war widow. Maybe you can read a little about it here.If the Creek Don't RiseBut I really do want to read it now. I think it might have some wisdom I can afford. :)
I will leave you with a lovely little video I wanted to share with you tonight. Very inspirational and very creative. Made By Tammy!

Kindness To Animals

Teach your children to be kind to all things that are smaller than themselves. Teach them by taking care of them with loving eyes and loving hands. Remember that everything starts in the home. You did not like the way you were raised? Then end that cycle now.

"Compassion may be first learned through kindness to all creatures great and small" -William J. Bennett

Little children, never give
Pain to things that feel and live,
Let the gentle robin come
For the crumbs you save at home,
As his meat you throw along
He'll repay you with a song.
Never hurt the timid hare
Peeping from her green grass lair,
Let her come and sport and play
On the lawn at close of day.
The little lark goes soaring high
To brigh windows of the sky,
Singing as if 'twere always spring,
And fluttering on an untired wing-
Oh! Let him sing his happy song,
Nor do these gentle creatures wrong.

Art classes for this year are almost over! And so is Campaign 11.

There is only a couple more days till Campaign 11 is over. If you missed anything of course you know you can still put in for a backorder later. :) I will keep those links open to you at all times! Today I am tired. Its cloudy outside. It keeps raining a little here.. a little there...

I am hoping this summer I can paint a little more. I really need to find a groove where I can kinda pace myself. Kinda like when I was in school. One hour for this subject a day.. Another for this subject. So I have Family - Painting - Crocheting - Avon. Just need to figure out how to delegate it all. Staying off the net would probably help a lot! hahahaha...

This is the last week for my art classes. I really did not think it would bother me too much. Yesterday I ended one and when all the children were telling me their stories about their silly animals - I honestly did not hear much of them. I just watched the kids as they talked. I looked at their faces and their happy eyes. I then became very sad. I am going to miss them! And with all this crazy weather I will worry for them also. I almost started to cry when I thought of all of this. I had to hide it from them. When the last child was in their car with their parent waving goodbye to me as if they would see me again soon - the tears just came out. I could not stop them! I also prayed for their safe return and for the Angels to look over them. This is my second school year with them but this time it really hit me. I am not like the normal teachers. I do not rotate them out after the year is over. I usually have the same children all year long and then into the next. Well that is how it has worked out so far. They have all stolen my heart. I have one more to go this week. It's going to be hard for me also. But I will not let them see me sad. But I know I will cry on my way home again. I could cry right now just typing this out.

Do you need some EYE MAKE UP REMOVER? Its on sale right now! For only .99 cents! It will even remove waterproof mascara.

"My name is Jesus, and I'm serious,"

I was just reading about Alan John Miller and his wife. I watched a couple of his videos and listened to what he had to say. Have you ever heard of him?? What do you think??? I actually have no words to explain what I am thinking. Maybe in time I will but I do not believe I am knowledgeable enough to really talk much about it. What about you?

Did you know?

How funny but did you know that crochet is "hook" in French? So why do we call it a crochet hook? We are calling it a HOOK HOOK! Silly right?

Do you call the ATM an ATM Machine? Do you know what ATM stands for? Automated Teller Machine. So we are calling it the Automated Teller Machine Machine. ;)

Can you think of anything else?

To Sale Or Not To Sale!

I had some trouble with my store lately. For some reason when someone registered on my page - they went to check out and they were sent to the reg. Avon.Com site. Unfortunate. If you want to order some Avon from me - please make sure that when you are checking out, you can still see my face at the top. Thank you! Other wise you would have to place my phone number at the bottom of the check out page. I tried to resolve this problem with Avon but got no where. Sorry.

Anwyays. My blog for today is about being a salesman/woman. I have to say that my hats are off to all of those in this profession. I am just a woman at home with my kids and it is an experience.

A woman came to my door wanting me to buy organic cleaning supplies. When I said Hello to her she started to rap about her product. I do not mean rap aka talk either. She literally started to RAP! I found it amusing. Even my children came to the door and listened to her. Well she started to show me what she could do with this stuff. She even handed me a bottle and said here, this one is for you. And I was sure she was not just "giving" me the bottle but I thought that was weird. Thats when it started. She became pushy. Would not really let me speak much or denie her. If I said anything not in her favor she would turn it around and tell me how she could do anything with this stuff. She even told me and showed me how much money my neighbors spent with her. WOW. She made it so hard for me to tell her now. I was beautiful - my kids were beautiful. She said I looked like a model!! I am not kidding. She was "really" laying it on thick. Started to drive me crazy! I just wanted her to go. But she made it so hard for me to say no. I thought if I said yes - she would go away finally. But really - I did not want the product. So I told her to come back later when my husband was home. That usually works! They usually go away and never return. Not this woman. She came back at nine at night! My husband said.. well its all you. Now go out there and tell her no! So I went out.. Told her that I was sorry. She was so mad at me. Now she was rolling her neck at me and telling me that she keeps her word and I do not and she said "now I gotta go back out there and sell this bottle that I was saving just for you!" Not even true because she had just as many as she did when she came to my door the first time. At that moment I did not have a concern about how I was going to please her because I knew she was lying to me the whole time she spoke to me. She had so much respect for me when she wanted something from me and then when I was not going to give it to her - she was rude. (sigh) So the trouble I had was - I do not want to be like that. I do not want to push people into saying "anything" just to get me to go away. But if I am not a little pushy they will not see that actually Avon is not that bad of a product line. But- I do not push. So I feel like I am either Out if I do or Out if I don't. you know that old saying. Its really frustrating. So what I am asking from all of you reader - can you tell me how you like to be approached? If you like to be approached? Anything that I can work with! I sure would appreciate it.

My Favourite Picks for Campaign 11.

I was just looking through the brochure. I know I know BAD AVON REP! Well I am being honest - I did not look till tonight. So as I was looking through the brochure and I actually have a bit of a headache from smelling them the colognes!
Avon has added little scratch and sniffs to the brochures! YaY for Avon for jumping on the ban - wagon. Is that what it's called? Ban Wagon? Or is it the Band Wagon? Not important! Okay.. Let me get this started. I talk way too much!


WAIT!! I should make a graphic for this huh? Okay.. Be back!

Okay. Back. Hows this?




















I can not seem to clean that up the way I want to! Its very touchy on the blog. Either way - if it says WANT then.. Well I want one. If it says WORKS then I have it and I use it. If it says LOVE that means I love it and I use it and I have it. If you would like to add your top picks I would love that!

Kids are so cute!

My 6 year old gave me a cook book for mother's day. It was full of all the other children's, plus his, recipes for their favourite foods. This is my son's =

Oatmill. By Xander.
You get the bucket of oatmeal. Get some water and put it in a pot. Let it boil for 7 minutes. Put the oatmeal in the pot. Then you stir it for 8 seconds. Then you eat it! Put some brown sugar on it.

I thought that was so cute!

I loved this one too!

Dinosaur Cookies by Kenley

First you mix the dough. Then you put some flour on it. You cut the shape of a dinosaur. You put them in the oven for I think 3 min. Once they are done baking you ice them with blue or green icing. You can have one if you make them at night or you can have 2 if you make them in the morning.

Hot Dogs By Christian

Get the bread out. Get the meat out. Cook the meat. Put it on the hot dog bun. Put the ketshup and mustard on it. Then it's time to eat!

Chocolate Chip Cookies by Sydney

They are frozen and they are round. Put them on a pan. Put them in the oven. You cook them. you get them out. Let them cool and then put them on a plate.

I thought it was funny on some of these and the children's perception of time. I was thinking they would say that everything took hours and hours! You know when you were young you had no patients so everything seemed to take hours instead of min. But they didn't. I love the little book and I will keep it forever!

Today is mothers day! YaY for moms! What a great day to celebrate our mothers. Today I woke up and decided that I was going to make some breakfast. Then I thought - Wait. I am the mom. Today is my day! So why can't the kids do it? At that moment my mood changed. I felt unhappy.I did not want to be unhappy so I decided to "choose my own adventure". I was not going to get upset today. So I made the breakfast just like I would any day and thought about how much I love them. This is why its my day. Because I do things like this! I decided to continue doing it. We had pancakes with dark chocolate chips and some heath candy pieces, bacon and eggs. It was really good. My kids loved it. The younger ones had it all over the sides of their faces and they were happy and laughing. That is why I am a mother! That is why this is my day today! I am happy. Happy to be a mother! Even if I still have to make breakfast and clean my house today.

BE HAPPY MOMS! You are the greatest. I know you may feel unappreciated a lot of the time. I know I do! I can relate. But just remember they do listen to you even when you do not think they do. They love you even when you do not think they do. :) If you  missed my last post - I dedicated this song to all of us ROCKSTAR MOMS! And yes.. that means you! Katey Perry. FIREWORK

Song of the day!

To all you wonderful Moms out there! Have a great day and remember - BABY YOU'RE A FIREWORK!!

No more songs stuck in my head!

I really get frustrated when a silly song gets stuck in my head. So yesterday I figured out a way to get rid of it. Every time I would try to sing the song in my mind - I would replace the words with BLAH BLAH BLAH.. But you can not sing that in the songs same tune. It has to be just blah blah blah as if you are saying it to be a jerk! Know what I mean.. It worked.. You can try it and tell me if it works next time! That reminds me. Remember when I posted about how I was sending my grandmother and mother an avon care package for mothers day? I realized a couple days ago - I sent it to myself. I can not believe I did that. Yes I can.

Online Friends

I just have to come in and tell you how much I love my new friends that I meet online. I actually have two people that I have known for about 12 or 13 years now that I met online. Remember when AOL was big? That is where I met them. When chatting and IM's were really fun. One of those said person's is like a mother to me now. She is the one that I call on the phone when I need advice about God or my children. I trust her with all my heart. I have met her 3 times I believe now in those years. I love her more and more as the days go by too. Then the other one he is about my age. He has been one of my best friends ever since. He has been there to help me through a lot of my growing up and my stressful days. I have never met him in person though. He lives all the way across the other side of the states. But I care for him just the same. :) And now I am meeting a couple more really nice people on the net and I am very thankful for that. :) Thank you to those of you who know who I am talking to!
