Sweet and Sour Chicken

I am still searching for meals my kids will eat. So far we have spaghetti, tacos, quesadillas, and chicken adobo. Tonight I am going to try Sweet and Sour Chicken from a recipe I found on Disneyfamily.com. It has soy sauce, ketchup, and sugar so it can't be too bad.

I have to cook 2 pounds of chicken because it is getting more and more difficult to have enough food for my kids. Ever since I weaned Eli, he has been eating like a pig. I think Eli eats more than anyone else right now. He eats waffles, apple sauce, and anything that I happen to be eating. He loves to beg his father for food the most though. I think Eli does it as a way to bond with his daddy. Eli is 20 months old now and can pretty much eat anything.

Another boy that is getting older is Jon who just turned 9. Jon still loves Star Wars, a life long love that began when he was 1 year old. Now he collects Star Wars the Clone Wars Lego Mini-figures. He even makes custom mini-figures. They entertain him for hours. He also loves to read Rick Riordan books and mythology. That makes me happy because I also love mythology. Since mythology can be "R" rated it is nice to have them kid friendly in Riordan's books. Jon still does gymnastics and is doing well. He is excelling in parallel bars and rings.

Viki recently turned 11 and is loving her new iPod Touch that she got for her birthday. I now can enjoy her Facetime! She is obsessed with Smallville right now. She is currently on Season 2. She also loves Rick Riordan books and has read all of them. She still enjoys her friends and helping out at church. She loves baking and taking care of little children.

Aron still has some behavioral issues at home but is doing great at school. I am still trying to get him more disciplined. He is a very good reader but for some reason does not do well on his tests at school. I love to talk to him about his day and to read the Hobbit to him before he goes to bed.

Right now I am still obsessed with the Middle Ages and would love to be a professional Medievalist. I am reading Montaillou  a book about 14th century France. My heart is still in the 13th and early 14th century.
I still love genealogy and would love to somehow combine the two obsessions together.

Well, this is my life- on to cook Sweet and Sour Chicken!

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
