Inauguration Day

The day the whole United States has been anticipating is finally here. And you know what? I feel amazing. I am excited to see what the next 4 years bring. For a long time this country has needed change. I am not saying President Trump is the best choice. But between him and Hillary he definitely was. The country has already been under Hillary’s”command” before. It was time for someone else to be in charge. 

Although I am excited for the next four years. I also fear for those innocent people in areas where the rioting is happening. They are just people trying to live their lives. They aren’t out there trying to riot, they are trying to get home or to work. I hope that the riots are peacefully. I don’t care what you are rioting about the moment it becomes violent I don’t support you. 

I hope you all have a great and safe day.

What Was Your Most Prized Possession as a Child?

Not to long ago, before iPods and CD’s there were tape players. Some of you may even remember them. Well I had one. It was Little Tikes brand and had a cool little microphone. Like most tape players you could record tapes, every once in a while my mom would buy my tapes so that I could record things. This tape player was the bomb. I can honestly say it was my most prized possession as a child. I took it everywhere with me. I even took it when I ran away one summer. As I got older I out grew the need of a tape player, mostly because technology evolved. But I never got rid of the tape player, and I have kept in a box full of childhood memoirs to someday show my own children.

Flying Mugs

One thing I really hate about the winter is how easy it is to get sick. I have been fighting off a cold for the past few days, and I am losing. I have been trying to just take it easy and rest. While resting I enjoy drinking tea. (I may have a tea obsession). Well today I went to get a mug out of the cupboard and I open my cupboard and out flies a mug. The mug hit me on the stomach and then shattered on the floor. Mind you I have been in just a bathrobe all day. I started screaming and my dad comes rushing into the room. I am standing in the kitchen with a shattered mug on the floor, and he says to me “What is going on in here?” So I proceed to tell him what had happened and then he accused me of putting the mug there so that when he opened the cupboard it would take him out. I, of course, denied the accusation since I would never do anything like that. We joked about it for a few minutes.

You may wonder why I am telling you this, and here it is. Always make sure that mugs are not in a position that they could fall out of the cupboard because it hurts like a b**ch when they hit you.

Sittercity vs. Care.com

Since I have been on a very low income for the last year, I took up some part time babysitting gigs.After doing some research I decided to try both Sittercity and Care.com. Both were very easy to use. I was able to look for babysitting gigs that fit my schedule, near me and would pay what I was looking for. I submitted a lot of applications to both sites and never had any response on Care.com. After about a month of submitting applications on Sittercity I did have a few responses and have babysat for a few families.

I had the most success by looking on Facebook. I did a search for local babysitting groups and found a couple and joined them. I posted that I was looking to babysit and had a few people message me. Finding people through Facebook was a lot faster and resulted in better babysitting gigs.

I would love to hear your stories.
