Kids and their naps

Our grand kids are still at the age that they take naps. They sleep well at night but are active enough in the day that a nap is needed. Recently we watched two of them and it was nice that they had such great schedules. They would eat their lunch and off to bed they would go. No fussing. Then we would lay down and nap also.


My husband owns many guns. In his line of work it is a must. I never realized how many parts a gun can have. He likes to look on sites for new and different eotech products and more. I must say, guns are not really my thing. I'm actually kind of afraid of them. But that's probably alright. I don't think I will need to use one for anything. I'm not a hunter either. Some people really enjoy that type of thing.

Healthcare Medical Jobs

With the economy in the shape that it has been in for the past couple of years we have seen the rise in unemployment. We know family and friends that have been on the search for new positions. Whether it's a healthcare medical jobs or some other area of expertise, it can still be a stressful time for the jobless individual as well as their families. I'm thankful that my husband and I haven't had to deal with this.

New iPod

Bill got a new iPod for Christmas and he loves it. It has two cameras and can also take video. It has a few other features than the previous model. It holds a lot of music that we can take with us. It is Bill's but I enjoy it too. To him it is a cool toy. He plays with it every day. I am glad he likes it.

Natural Diuretic

In the fight to lose the bulge many choose a natural diuretic. With water retention comes extra pounds so they find this to be a quick way to shed some unwanted weight. There are other methods to this weight loss process. For each individual it can be different. Be safe and check with your doctor when trying to lose.

Safest Diet Pill

We like many are wanting to lose those unwanted added pounds that found us over the winter months. We ask our selves what is the safest diet pill? We know that we need to cut down on portions and also need to pick up on the exercising. It's not easy, but it is a must to take care of our bodies. They are the only ones we are given.

Home Speakers

We have surround sound speakers in our addition as well as our living room. Over Christmas time our son was telling us about some home speakers he had been looking out and how great they sounded. He has since purchased them and has gotten my husband now thinking about doing the same. I'm not sure that we will, but am glad our son and his family are enjoying theirs.

Golf Season

I personally am not a huge golf fan but my husband is. He even enjoys watching golf on television, which I would have trouble doing. I have to admit that I don't mind playing 9 holes or so if the weather is great and the course isn't busy. What I don't like is poor golf conditions and playing too long. I guess that proves that I am not a real golfer.

Computer Monitors

Boy, has technology changed or what? I can remember our first computer. It had a capicity to hold very little. But the weight and size of the computer monitors back then were huge. Now we have this slim lined, lite weight monitor. Such a space saver and so easy to move around. The actual viewing size is now greater also. Progress is a good thing!

Somewhere Warm

At this time of year I think it would be great to go somewhere warm. It has been so cold lately and we have too much snow. Just to be out of here for a week or two would be wonderful. The bad thing is that most states are currently having cooler weather. Maybe I would have to travel out of the country, like the Bahamas. Gee, that would be awful. Actually I would love to go there or any other tropical place. For now though I will just put up with the cold of winter.

Is Christmas Worth It?

Guest post written by my buddy Keith Kramer

Bah humbug! I think I'm the Grinch, or maybe I'm Scrooge. Whichever name you choose, so be it. I am grouchy about Christmas and the holidays, I don't want to make a big deal about it all. My wife fusses way too much about which presents to buy for what person. Have we gotten too commercial? Yes!

We spend Christmas Day at my parents' home. They live in the same city we do, but I'm still sure to set my home security alarm from securitychoice before we travel. I am glad that we don't have to drive too far because I am concerned about being on the roads during icy conditions, which can happen where we live.

My parents don't make the big deal about Christmas that my wife does. My parents still think of Christmas as a time when people get together to eat a good meal (or two) and catch up. After all, isn't Christmas about spending time with the people you love? Sure, a few presents are great, but do we have to buy the entire store?

So Christmas isn't my favorite time of year. I love seeing my family and traveling to see my folks, but I like to keep it real. Christmas is about togetherness. Christmas is about seeing the people you love and having a good time without being too commercial!

Prescription Eyeglasses

I have always had perfect vision. Then my forties hit and my sight began to change. I soon needed prescription eyeglasses. I am thankful that there is a way to see clearly now. I use to struggle to see when out shopping and now can actually read the prices. My husband had to help me to see and now I can on my own. It's great to have glasses.
