The SpiderWebSystem

I know I haven't been very good at this, I will try to do better. Easter had come to soon this year, at least for me. Then kids spring break was just last week, instead of Easter time. I have found a system I WILL recommend. It is also my other blog, what a concept. Anyhow, so far I have been tinkering with it, more for education, and have found it mind boggling. Yes, I finally will give a good recommendation. Try it out, it is Free!!. Told you I was looking for a concept for us who need breaks in life. Okay, time to sing. Check it out:

Lot of Shaking going on

This has been a real needles and pins week. Seems like almost every night (morning early am hours) we have been having a series of small earthquakes. And then the Santa Ana Winds last week didn't help my nerves. They caused 3 power outages that finally shut my computer completely down, even with the surge protector, and I lost all data on my computer. I have been trying diligently this week to update everything that I lost and still trying. But on this note I do want to make sure that all of you who are taking care of love ones at home, who need life support, to contact your electric company and make them aware of this. We are on a first response alert with the power company for Steve, plus get a small discount on the electric bill. So if you haven't all ready please let the utilities know of your situation for power usage. okay you know the rest, yep sing, even if the ground is shaking, Whole lot of ....., name that tune.

Time to Come Out of Shell

As stated in my last post, I was going to look into, again, trying to generate income from home. Boy, I think I didn't learn the first time. But I am not going to give up. Even though I am broke again, I will study all the different chances out there, and research them, before I spend money I don't have, I am not afraid of work, just being taken advantage of. I did find one opportunity that I am using more as a learning source. But the best thing out of this was coming across Adlandpro, in which I need to read through alot of messages I have gotten and respond to them. Those of you who know me, know that I am scared of people, but I am ready to take the plunge and say hello world, I am here, you just don't know it. Enough of my jargon, got some new friends to make. You know what to do now, Yep, Sing, Sing, laugh, love and never lose hope.

Have become a surf addict

For the past two weeks I have been surfing different traffic sites. This is very educational. Didn't realize there was so much stuff (and junk) out there. And since I need to find a way to generate income as things are getting tight, without my working anymore, that I thought this would be a great start. But I'm a little nervous, I tried this before sometime back and lost $$ on bad people. Yep took my money and ran. Then I tried a MLM, well after 1-1/2 yrs, and way into debt, I realized that this wasn't the avenue either. (yep slow learner should have realized this by month 4 at least. I'm not going to give up, when I find the right one I will then let you know. I can't encourage anyone to try something if I don't know it will work. It is now 4 am, and the rain has flooded the front street, to bad it doesn't rain some trout with it. Smile, Sing, and Never Let Go of Hope.

Staying well

It's been a tough 2 weeks. As caregivers we need to remember our own health. Boy a lesson I need to practice more. Talk about sick. This virus going around sneaks up on you and pow, it feels like a torpedo went through you. So remember to drink lots of water, get that sleep, I know it is sometimes easier said than done, but we have to take care of ourselves before we can do a good job tending to our love ones. My oldest heard how sick I was and sent me flowers. Later.

Caregiver Notebook for Alzheimer's

Today I received in the mail a free caregiver notebook for Alzheimers. My mother was recently diagnosed with Alzheimers and so I surfed the net and came to the Alzheimer's Association site. This is a really organized notebook and will be very helpful in many ways. I called my sister and she had also requested the book (each not knowing the other did) and she is just as impressed. Go to or call their 24/7 helpline at 1-800-272-3900 and hopefully if you or someone you know is caring for an Alzheimer's patient they might still have some. Keep your spirits up, and yes, sing.

Don't Forget the Other Special People

We can sometimes get so caught up in the care for our special bedridden child/parent/friend that unintentionally not give the needed attention to our other special people. I was reminded of this important element this evening when my youngest son (12 yrs old) looked so sad and lost as he sat trying to do his homework. As I placed my hand on his shoulder and asked if I could help, he brightened up and commented that he thought I forgot him. We spent an hour on his homework and had some good laughs. Tomorrow I have a date with my 12 yr old son and 14 yr old daughter playing cards or board games, their choice. Also try and remember other special people in your life, by sending some flowers or a card with a letter inside, just let them know that you care. Keep your spirits flying and yes don't forget to sing.
