Long Day in Autumn

Without a doubt or hesitation, Autumn is my favorite season. The best time of year, but also the busiest time of the year for me. I've been blogging everyday, but yesterday, I was soooooooo tired. I had such a long day. It went something like this:
  • Dropped my son off to school.
  • Proceeded to take my two little girls to their Dentist appointment.
  • Got off the bus 10 blocks too far
  • Caught the bus back the other way.
  • 9:45am, we still made it in time (Whew!)
  • 1:00pm, made it home.
  • Gave the girls lunch, set them up with a movie, turned on my computer and started work.
  • 5:30pm time for a quick dinner.
  • 6:00pm, made it to Back to School Night.
  • 8:00pm, made it home with just enough time to get the kids ready for bed.
  • 9:00pm-whenever I feel asleep, I was trying to clean up and chill.

I didn't get the chill time I was looking. I didn't get a chance to blog all day yesterday and I missed all my shows on CNN. But I did gather the following info.

  1. Washington Mutual made history by becoming the largest bank failure ever and it was sold to JP Morgan Chase.
  2. The debate is still hanging in the air. No one knows if McCain will show. Obama is still going.
  3. The big bailout, remains uncompromised.

I feel asleep last night but I woke up at some point and AC 360 was on CNN. I saw snippets of Palin's interview with Couric and some other recent clips. She didn't look like the confident strong woman she was when she first accepted McCain's offer to be his running mate. She looked and sounded unsure of herself and nervous. I felt bad for her and I would much rather see the spunky, confident, strong Palin that started out. (This doesn't mean I am changing my vote or that I would even consider voting for her, just that I am a woman and I care about other women). Anyway, there are a bunch of videos on YouTube about it if you want to see for yourself.

TGIF- Today, I plan to relax, hopefully I get that accomplished.

Blurred Lines

Do you know what it's like to lay in someone's arms and feel completely empty? To have their body wrapped around yours, naked, skin touching, breathe on your neck, arms holding you so tight it feels as if they were meant to never let you go. I lose myself in the forehead kisses and the brushing of my hair behind my ears. In the soft whispers and the morning smiles. I lose myself most of the time. But sometimes, I just lay there wrapped in his naked body wondering if he holds everyone like this. Wondering why I keep coming back. Knowing, that I'll come back again.  *Photo by cottonbro from Pexels

Nine Easy to use Apps for Small Cash Advances

Photo by Yan Krukov   Cash Advance apps offer people the ability to borrow small amounts of money in the form of cash advances. Some may have additional features, such as credit-building, saving and budgeting tools, and bank accounts. Most require a monthly membership fee and/or service fees that will be deducted from your account at the same time as your advance repayment. You will need to have a bank account with direct deposit from your employer in order to use these apps. Here is a list of nine, no hassle, Cash Advance apps you can use to get from pay check to pay check. Before I list them, I want to advise against using these apps unless it is an emergency. These should only be used every once in a while. If you are having problems getting from paycheck to paycheck, there is likely a bigger issue at hand. I recommend going over your income and expenses and watching your spending, or getting a second job. Click here for the budgeting app that I use and how it


Years ago, before I was ever married, I remember asking a friend about trust. She was already married and had been with her husband for a few years. I asked her, "How do you know you can trust him? How do you have faith in him to do the right thing? Don't you ever worry he'll cheat on you?" She told me that you don't put your faith in your husband. You have faith in God. If your husband is doing something wrong, you trust in God to make it right. That conversation has always stuck with me. The bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths." (NKV Proverbs 3:5-6). I took her words, my Bible, and six weeks of marital counseling with our pastor into my marriage. Still, after only three months, my husband was having an affair. I felt sick. I felt stupid. I felt betrayed. I was angry, and everything they told me went null and void. When y
