As I am writing this I am on hold for 48 minutes now!!! ( By now I am committed and am gonna wait it out until someone answers). Why you ask?? Well, I have spent the better part of two days now calling numerous Internet sites asking them to refund money that was charged to our bank account!! I am not happy. Let me just break this down for you:

  • We had about 12-15 charges ranging from $1-$60- all for products we did not purchase!!!
  • The worst of it was an "adult entertainment site" - and JOSEPH R. CURLE if you really exist I am going to find you!!!!!!! That was the name on the account (thanks to the customer service rep for telling me that). And he used someone else's phone #, whom I called and bless him he has been getting phone calls regarding this same person. JOSEPH your days are numbered because I will hunt you down. I AM ON A MISSION!!!!
  • We have had products shipped to our home, and the business had our name and address
  • Many of these were free trials that then lead in to monthly subscriptions
  • And if you even think about ACAI BERRY- they are the wort (hence the 48 minute hold time) they are the worst- Google complaints on GNS Vitamins. I am not the only one that has had this problem.

Please be careful with your information. There are many people out there that are waiting to steal from you.

The Countdown is on

We are going to Disney in....3 weeks!!!! I am probably more excited than the girls are at this point, just can't wait. Here's a picture from 2 yrs ago when I was pregnant with Maggie and Mackenzie was 18 mo.

Why I love Mr. Clean

I just have to say that I am a HUGE fan of the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. Why?? Well, I am somewhat obsessive about my girls' shoes looking like they are new, and let me tell you this does the trick! I usually clean them once a week and keep them looking sparkly!! Just thought I would throw that out at you. And, it really does get stuff off the wall, like crayon marks and such. It is a gem, and every house should have a ready supply on hand!

What is With this Girl??

Ok, I just had to show some pictures of our dear sweet Maggie is her newest endeavor- undressing! I am really not sure what her fascination is with taking her shirt and pants off, but she really enjoys it!! Apparently her recent diagnosis of salmonella does not deter her!

Thanks to MOPS mommies

I just wanted to say a thank you to my wonderful friends at MOPS (mothers of preschoolers). I did what I hate to do yesterday- cry in front of people. It just makes me feel silly. Although, I am a big cryer- I do it alot, happy and sad. I am not a pretty cryer, get blotchy and my nose runs. Anyway, after the prodding of my friend Shelley, I spoke a prayer request for the sleepless nights and utter frustration I have experienced lately. And, generally I don't like to publicly announce my prayers requests, again- the silly feeling. There seems to be more important ones than mine. Long story short, just the encouragement from these wonderful ladies made me feel better. To laugh with them about their experiences lifted my spirits. I am so thankful for this group of moms in my life. If you are a mother of a preschooler, please check out MOPS- it will change your life and your parenting! www.MOPS.org

And, just to update, we had a better night last night, just one waking and right back to sleep!! Praise the Lord!

(By the way, I am pretty sure I did not spell cryer right, or even if there is such a word, but I know you will understand)!!
