Smoking Bans


I Quit

Day 39: Time to quit

At one time I would have said that it should be at the preference of the customer. However, this year was a marking point when I decided to quit smoking. Now that I have quit smoking I feel better, food tastes totally different, and I enjoy not smelling like a cigarette. I did not realize that everyone I am around would smell the smoke from the chemicals, and other additives that they put in cigarettes. I stopped smoking with the help of Choice Ecig. I am proud to say that I do not want to smoke ever again. I am at that point in my life that I would like to be around for a few more years and would like to spend that money on other things to make life better.

Writing a Book


I love to write

Writing & Skirt

I have thought about writing a book especially when I can write around 100,000 words in one year in a journal about all the things that happen in a years time and on a daily basis. I have journal entries from different places that I have worked in and most of the comments are funnier now than they were when I wrote them. It is interesting the things that you find out about people when you just listen to them talking about their lives. I have managed to almost write 20,000 this year from the day to day grind. Like Saturday the children and I have been building a Terrarium and we found two cocoons and one of them hatched Saturday morning. These are the moments that I cherish in my journal writings.

The process of writing the book is almost in the editing stage. Almost a year of writing gives you a feeling of accomplishment. She has written over 100,000 words thus year alone including writings from last year, and her notebooks lying around the house in different places. Of course, everyone wants to know what is written in those entries. Only time will tell as she embarks in the world if finding out the true meaning of editing.

Hughes Net internet


Earlier this year I decided to get hughes net to finish my last class for college and I did not mind the fact that there would be a two year contract. The representative told me that my bill would be under $50.00 for the first three months, and that there were some discounts because I was in school. However, the first month I paid over$60.00
and it went up from there. I have contacted them and they told me that.i would have to call and listen to the recording when I signed up. What in the world all these companies like comcast, charter, hughesnet, and other internet providers twll you what you want to hear to get your money no matter

Hughesnet is the slowest unreliable internet provider that I have ever had and I am voicing my opinion about them and I will tell everyone that I meet how crappy they are with customer service and making sure that their customers are happy. I expected to pay a certain price and now I am stuck in a two year contract. I have had problems loading the web pages and doing the normal activities that most people do on the internet.

If you are one day late a message from hughesnet will appear causing you to stop what you are doing and close out your browser and lose what you were working on to pay your bill. They tell you what you want to hear and make you think you are getting a good deal when in fact they are only signing you up to get your money.

I see many people throughout the course of my day and I can tell everyone of them what a joke hughesnet is. Not to mention that they claim to be the cheapest internet around. When you live in the mountains you do not have a lot of choices. However, the choices you do have should provide better customer service to their customers. The representative that processed my claim did not even put anything about the dicounts on my file except for a ten dollars off the first month. Oh yeah that helped me out a lot. Hughesnet is one company that I will never recommend, and I will do my best to tell at least everyone that I meet how unreliable and slow their services are.

Our Terrarium Project Homeschooling.

Well until they get eaten by the frogs, and lizards! It was a wonderful experience and one that we will continue throughout the upcoming years.

research done throughout the year and quizzes taken to understand the life cycles of plants and animals of all kinds.

Centipedes, millipedes, pill bugs, praying mantids, spiders, and many other insects living in the terrarium throughout this project. Tha children have learned a ton of informarion about the different insects out in the world today. The first cocoon they found did not have anything in it and ended up decompossing within the soil. Since, the start of the terrarium project the children have enjoyed the part of finding new insects to watch, and monitor. Researching is the key to having a successful project.

Another successful project will be underway shortly. The children will learn how to take care of animals, grow a garden, and many other things next school year. Homeschooling is womderful to say the least. She enjoys every minute with her children and exploring new boundaries of topics.
