My absence

Hello I am thrilled that I now have 11 followers and I love that I can see the count from the different countries. I love you ladies and appreciate you all stopping you. I have not been blogging for a while now and I have my reasons. Everything is fine, so do not worry. I just need to get back on the horse and start blogging more. I am trying to figure out how to upload 12x12 layouts as I do not have a big scanner. If you already do this please let me know how to do it so it looks like it is upright rather than laying flat. I have been very busy re-organizing the house and cleaning from inside out. I find that I feel more peaceful and relaxed yet not much has changed as far as my schedule. I have been following the flylady on I have been reading her e-mails and we now have the house fairy that visits. You can find her here : The kids love it as they view her videos and truly believe. I also believe that the kids want more quality time with me so they get rewarded with something I type up on the PC. For eg. tea party with mommy or a game of candy land. You get the idea. My kids finally understand that we all work as a team in this family and if they do their share then I have less to do and that frees me up to play with them. Don't get me wrong, my kids are not perfect by any means and I still use bribery and threats but positive discipline is key. No good deed go unrewarded and it does not always have to be a toy or candy. Getting back to what is most important like quality time together is what the point and focus is and my kids value that more than candy or a toy and for that I feel blessed. The last month or so has been all about being organized and I have a long way to go but a little everyday. In 15 min you can do a lot and this way I am no longer overwhelmed and feel like there is so much to do. Check out the sites and you to will be a lot more relaxed and most importantly be caught up with the house work. I have forgotten how much I like to blog and I will get back to it now. Thanks for stopping by. Hope you all are well. Hugs and kisses to you all. MWAH !!!!! Free Spirit !!!
