Share the Love, Feel the Love

Yes, I want to win a Sony VAIO.  Tech Savvy Mama and AMD Vision Technology are giving one away.  What an amazing and generous giveaway. Seriously!

So you want to know why I'd like to win?  Well, it's simple.... it's because of him:

It's been a very tough few years for us, especially my husband.  For over 20 years he has worked his way up through the construction field and in 2000 started his own finish carpentry business.  Because of his hard work, we were able to afford a nice home and take care of our family of 5 children.  Then came the mortgage industry fiasco and the economy bottomed out.  Suddenly no one was building homes or really building anything.  This adversely affected my husband's business as there was no work and contracts which he was owed defaulted.  Suddenly, we found ourselves wondering "what does one do when your entire life's work and experience is no longer needed"?  It's kind of a pickle.

So, my husband and I find ourselves starting from scratch since we have lost everything we worked so hard for.  However, I am hopeful and we are incredibly blessed to have what we have: wonderful children, a loving marriage and a nice roof over our heads!  I refuse to dwell on the bald tires that need replacing, our ancient computer, our cramped quarters or the well-worn tattered sofa.  Instead, I am grateful for my big coupon box that allows us to eat well, the moments of laughter and our love.

Having a new computer would be a great relief because one day I fear this old computer will kick it and hubby won't be able to access Job Service, and Yahoo Hot Jobs!!  Because I know... that next adventure is out there waiting. :)

I am sharing this story as an entry to win a Sony VAIO YB notebook as part of the AMD “Share the Love, Feel the Love” giveaway on  You can read more at

Best Price Nutrition Review

The chaos around me, which is my world and body, is not usually supplemented.  I don't know why, I've just never been one to like to take any "pills".  I'm even hesitant to take my medically prescribed and medically necessary "pills".  I guess you could say I am sort of stubborn that way.

However, you could also say that I am not so stubborn that I don't realize the many benefits of adding supplements to your diet.  When I was given an opportunity to review some of the products at BestPriceNutrition.Com it seemed a good chance to find out more.  Hopefully my experiences will help those of you who have hesitated with using supplements or wondered about benefits and possible side effects, like me.  Please, always consult with your personal medical professional before starting any new supplemental regimen and remember that everyone is different and may react differently than my experience

New Chapter WHOLEmega Extra Virgin Omega-Rich Fish Oil, 1000mg

Fish Oil is something that has interested me for awhile now.  I have chronic problems with a low thyroid (which I call the concrete boots fuzzy brain syndrome) and a family history of heart problems.  Much to my doctor's chagrin I also have high blood pressure and borderline high cholesterol.  Oh joy!  So the touted benefits of Fish Oil intrigue me.  Heart problems, inflammation, arthritis, anti-aging, macular degeneration and mental health are some of the items on the list that Fish Oil is claimed to help.

It was with a small hesitation that I took my first dose of WHOLEmega and swallowed.  After about 3 days I must honestly say that I felt a difference.  My energy level seems to be a little more peppy and much to my surprise, my mental clarity is improved.  What a welcome surprise!  After about 10 days, the WHOLEmega is certainly not a miracle cure but truly does seem to help me feel more "functional" in my life.  The only side effect which I have experienced is a little belching with a slight fishy taste, not really bothersome but does sound funny.
