Sit Down, Shut Up, & Get It Done

Sit Down, Shut Up and Get It Done
As many of you know I believe that is a skill. And it is literally what I am telling myself right now as I can and have several other ways to spend my time, but there is one project that I would like to make significant progress on that I need to focus on. With that, I'm off to sit down, shut up, and get it done.

Oh and I have written several blog post in my head this past week. Maybe after I get a good amount of this task done I can actually share them with you all.

Good Times

I was asked to find a few photos and was blessed to get sidetracked by looking at a bunch of photos of when the children were younger. Those years were beyond special. I was trying to pick a few favorites but that proved to be impossible. I wouldn't want to bore you with fifty or so pictures so I am going to randomly pick 7. This is going to be difficult.

Act like I can't count and I hope I didn't bore you. I am not sure how I selected but this is what made the cut.

You Can Have My Vote

Today as I was washing the dishes and pondering the various issues in the upcoming elections, I asked myself am I taking educating my children too far.
Backing up a bit
Peace has been very interested in politricks, I mean politics, lately so we have been discussing. During one of our discussions I blurted out that if she researches the issues and can articulate why she would vote a particular way she can have my vote. She got pretty excited.

Now, (a week later), I am wondering... REALLY Erika?

I have settled on that I vote for her. Whatever I can do to help improve her mentally, physically, and spiritually I am all for it.

So Yes, Peace can have my vote. I am excited to see what and who she picks and why.

Going Abroad!!!!!

Greetings and Peace!
To The Folks in the Bay Area or those willing to advertise for us in the Bay Area...

Our two products: Laundry Detergent and Chinook Books

 We are officially set up to distribute Chinook Books. If you have no idea what the Chinook Book is please keep reading or check out this link. Chinook Book

In case you are wondering why we are selling the book. We are attempting to raise money to help us go abroad. We have been desirous for quite sometime to travel abroad but have not made it a reality. We are attempting to make it happen and would love your support in the effort. 

We have been very picky in what we have decided to use as a fund-raiser. We want products that we use ourselves and that are also guilt-free. I have personally purchased a Chinook Book ($20) for the past 3+ years and recouped my investment every time and believe you will as well. Hence, it is a win-win for both sides. This is my first year using the mobile app ($14) as this is also my first year having a smart-phone. I think both (book or app) are great deals. Below is a list of my favorites and I must admit, I mostly stay in the Grocery and Garden sections. However there are coupons in Dining, Entertainment and Family, Fashion and Gifts, Home & Garden, Travel and Recreation, & Wellness. They also have all kind of helpful tips and recommend earth friendly apps and such. Basically, it is a good product and I hope you purchase one from us. If you plan on getting the mobile app give me a call, I can get you started today.

-Chinook Book is a one-of-a-kind resource – a coupon book, a directory and source of ideas for living well and enjoying the best of what’s green and local in the East Bay.
