I can’t believe I’m already doing my #TidbitsThursday post. It is crazy how quickly 2013 is rolling through.
It’s been crazy here. Zeva had her check up, and her fussing is just a part of her personality (so far, but we are going to keep tabs on it.) We were told our house was sold, but then come to find out we’re still sitting in the limbo state of things. I can’t stand being in limbo over anything major. However, that is a part of life for everyone!
The boys school has been totally crazy!! I feel like we’ve been all over the place on that one. Of course, that may have more to do with the fact that Delbert is all over the place when he’s doing his work. I literally feel like I’m watching a ping pong ball go all over the room when he’s doing his work. He passes his test with flying colors. So, I guess I shouldn’t complain.
This is Del’s only day off for the week and I have no clue when he’s getting another day off again. He’s torn between spending time with me and playing his new Call of Duty game. (Right now the game is winning, but it’s so wonderful to hear him playing a game again!! He needs to relax!)
He literally has a long hectic schedule for the next few weeks due to the XBOX One and Playstation 4 hitting the shelves. So, he’s going to be a missed man! I’m just grateful that he’s willing to put forth this much effort to take care of his family so that I can be home.
FedEx was suppose to deliver a package to me today, but I haven’t heard a peep about my package being delayed nor is it here. I’m NOT a fan of FedEx. If I could ban all companies from using them to deliver my packages, I’d do it in a heartbeat. They love to throw packages over gates, or deliver them and I have no clue they even came by. (UPS did that to me ONCE when they had a new driver on our route, and I called them about it. I got a personal apology from the rep on the phone and the driver the next day.) I’m not one to talk bad about a company if I can help it, but FedEx has left a burr underneath my back and they’ve yet to do anything to remove it.
I got to watch the Activision Family Summit online today, and I totally loved it! I’m a huge fan of their products. I may be reviewing some of their products here soon on the blog too. I’m totally utterly excited about that fact! My boys are beside themselves with excitement over it.
I’ve been involved in quite a few things this week concerning learning different things about blogging. The first thing that happened this week that was totally utterly awesome was I got my BookBub email that I look forward to EVERYDAY. In it, there was the book How to Blog for Profit (Without Selling Your Soul) for .99 (it’s back to the normal price of $4.99.) I totally utterly LOVE IT! I noticed on Amazon it has a total of 78 other (I’m one of the reviewers listed) people that totally agree with me. This book is filled with valuable information! If the book isn’t enough, you can also get resources from the author’s website too! It’s just a remarkable investment. I’ve read many blogging books, and have found some to be quite helpful. However, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to get my hands on one that made me actually do some action. (Notice the change in layout on my page.)
I’ve got to take some time to really dig into my Pinterest page and organize it completely. Find some people who want to really interact with me on there too. I knew Pinterest was all important, but I didn’t realize how important. I’ve heard it a thousand times now, but seeing it in the form this author put it just made me actually SEE it!
I also got to attend some of the #learntoblog hangout by Kelli and Crystal about making my site faster. Which I still have to do some of the things they mentioned in the video. However, there just aren’t enough hours in a day. I’m working on it. I just also have to prioritize my time.
I’ve also applied for to be a part of an internship that really interests me. I don’t know if I’ll get in, but one can hope. If I get it, I do believe it will open some doors for me that I desperately want to walk through. Yes, I know just something else for me to do as Del puts it. However, to his credit he fully supports me. So do the kids, we work well together as a team to make everything happen.
Even though I’ve been doing my blog hopping and commenting, I can’t say I’ve had a blog that has stood out and made me think about it beyond when I read it. Normally I have at least one. Of course, to the other bloggers defense, I’ve been looking at food recipes getting ideas for ways to stretch out our food budget this month a lot. I’ve also been trying to gain some ideas for what to do for my mother-in-laws birthday that the kids could do rather cheaply for her. So, I haven’t been reading my typical types of blogs. I’m not sure if you’d be interested in me featuring those things. (IF you are, the good ones are pinned on my Pinterest page under foods and craft boards!) So, I’ve been finding some amazing food and craft bloggers! (In some ways, I really think they have more work involved with their blogs than mine ever thought out about having!)
Well, I’ve rambled enough. I hope this finds you doing well.
What has your week been like so far?
