What "Must Go" from Life

Some days it's hard to stay positive. I just have so many things that annoy me, I can't help but be a little negative. So I've found that writing down things that have annoyed me recently,  helps get it off my mind and makes me feel better. 

Things that must go

I feel like I hear that word constantly! My kids come to me asking "what are you doing mom?" About 500 times a day. My husband also loves to come home and say "what?" Every time I move.. it drives me crazy and it must go!

My OCD husband can't handle when someone in the house is sick. So it all falls on me. My son has developed a sore throat tonight and guess who gets to deal with it! I don't get the point of sickness anyway.. why do we have to get sick? Why can't we find a way to cure a common cold? Go away from my life sickness!

Knocking on my door
I'm sure people enjoy unannounced visitors... but I hate it. I have two dogs right now,  so any knock on my door and they go nuts,  if my kids are asleep,  they will be woken up from it.. and the only people who come visit is either church people or sales guys. I want nothing to do with either, so I think anyone knocking on my door should go! 

Speeders on the road
I can say I'm a pretty good driver. I'm good about not spending all the time, although I know the roads where there are no cops, so I bend the rules a little on those roads. 
I absolutely hate when I'm driving (over the speed limit) and someone drives their car right up behind mine as close as they can to show me I'm not going fast enough for them. Too many people do that nowadays. It's just old! Stop riding my bumper,  take a breath and realize you don't need to speed even if you are running late! 

Yeah, they can just go far away and never come back. 

I get these like crazy in the winter and I hate it! I could probably take better care of my cuticles and hands but who has to be for that? Just disappear hangnails. Nobody needs you.

Mom Guilt
I'm so tired of the mom guilt I feel sometimes.  I think it just needs to take a hike. No more mom guilt for me. 

What are some things that "must go" from your life? Sometimes it's nice just to get it out. It helps you not think about it as much. And who knows,  putting it out there might actually help it disappear from your life!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.
