September Finally Ended

September was a crazy month for our household! See, we do not adjust well to change in my family.

First- My kids started school, gymnastics, strings, choir, cub scouts, activity girls.

Then- My husband started back to work after a six month deployment.

Then- We bought a house!!!

Then- My mom came to visit so I was busy hanging out with her.

Then- I became obsessed with what happened on 9/11 in Libya and was active on Twitter.

I am also having a contest with my kids to see who can read the most books. I am reading Young Adult books so that I can give them ideas on some good books to read. I have been reading Doctor Who books which are a lot of fun to read. I also have been reading Scott Westerfeld's book Leviathan. It is a biopunk England versus a Steampunk Germany during World War I.

I also have been chasing my little toddler around which is harder to do at 35 than it was to do at 25. It is still a lot of fun. I love 15 months!

My husband and I are also trying to launch a new recipe website and it is a lot harder to do than I thought it would be. I will let you know the details later!


In other news, Jon got his Bobcat in Cubscouts! I was real proud of him. Aron is doing better getting used to school and is reading books now. Eli is walking everywhere and talking. Viki is playing the violin and still cooking whenever possible. She dreams of being a teacher and loves to help out with the neighborhood kids.

Again, sorry for no pictures.

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
