Aron's Birthday Celebration; A Good Day

I decided this year not to do a party. One of my friends had coupons that she had collected over the summer and we decided to use them. We had breakfast at IHOP. We got a free kid's meal with an adult meal. My kids are no fun so they just ordered chicken strips and mac and cheese. At least they had it with a side of fruit. I had a sausage, hash brown, onions, and green pepper with cheddar cheese omelet. You won't find it on the menu because I made it up. I just realized that I never got my pancakes.

Then we went to Novaks gym in Dumfries, VA. The kids had a lot of fun. Aron did a front tuck on the trampoline all by himself! He did several front tucks in a row landing on his feet everytime! Jon almost had his kip! The kip is the ultimate goal of level 5 boy's gymnastics. I thought we would be kicked out of the gym because it was supposed to be preschool playtime, but the coach was cool and even spotted Jon Jon!

This is a kip-

Then we went to Laser Quest. I am now a fan of laser tag. I would like to do laser tag as a group date thing. Aron was scared but Jon and Viki had a blast. Viki won first place. My nickname was Jinx and I got last place. Even Aron did better than I did.

Then we went to the mall! We had pizza from Sbarro's which I think was over priced. Their bread sticks were real good and I highly recommend them. Aziz and I split a teriyaki chicken. It was more than enough food and we even gave some to baby Eli. Then we played at the Lego store and then the mall playground.

Yes, I think it was a good day!

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made. It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of w

How to Attract Negative Commenters to Your Blog

I have been blogging since 2006 and one of the most interesting things is when this creature called a Troll finds your blog. A Troll is a bored scary little thing that goes through blogs, message boards, and You Tube comments saying mean, evil words creating a fight. If you've never had a troll visit your blog, it is easy to attract one. All you have to do is set a bait. Here is the bait that works the best. 1. Keep a "Conservative" blog. Extra points for being a member of the Tea Party. Trolls hate those who are Conservative and this bait successfully attracts the nastiest of trolls. Bonus points for misspelled words or bad grammer. You will suddenly get a comment about how Bush lied people died etc. 2. Write an anti- Obama post. My page views increased dramatically when I wrote a post against Obama, all were people trolling and questioning your intellect. It might not work as much now. Suddenly people will write comments questioning Bush or Reagan and how ra

The House of Ephraim and the Book of Mormon

The Bible is the story of the House of Judah. It is important because that the family that Jesus was born into. His mother Mary and her husband Joseph were both of the House of David and carried royal blood. It was important that the Bible be published for all of the world, but they aren't the only tribe. In prophecies the House of Joseph (Ephraim and Manasseh) are listed along with Judah. Ephraim and Manasseh were the major tribes and had the most members. Great leaders like Joshua belonged to the tribe of Ephraim. The Northern Kingdom was called Ephraim as the Southern Kingdom was called Judah. Ephraim is supposed to fight against and then unite with Judah. So where are their records? We have some remnants of their records in the Book of Chronicles. Before they were taken away to what is now Central Asia (Afghanistan, UZBEKISTAN, and Turkmenistan) by the Assyrians, they were given a chance by King Hezekiah of the Southern Kingdom to come to Jerusalem to worship in the temple
