PostHeaderIcon Sour Patch Redberry Slurpee available exclusively at 7-Eleven NOW!

Try the New RedBerry Slurpee at 7-ElevenI guess as we get older, our tolerance for things change. When I was a kid, I loved Sour Patch Kids. The faces we used to make would make my Mom laugh so hard. As an adult, I really don’t find them all that sour anymore. Have they changed? Have I changed? I couldn’t say for sure but, the new Sour Patch Redberry Slurpee at 7-Eleven is amazing!

Social media polling revealed “red” Sour Patch Kids, or Redberry flavor, as the overwhelming fan favorite against the other four Sour Patch flavors. Now the sour then sweet flavor of Sour Patch Kids Redberry and the frozen goodness of Slurpee come together for a taste you are sure to love. Last year’s Sour Patch Watermelon Slurpee became a new fan favorite and top-selling flavor and this year’s variety is expected to be a big hit as well!

PostHeaderIcon The Type 1 Diabetes news that changed our lives forever #T1D

I wanted to share with you why my postings have been well, few and far between the last few months. We were thrown a fast curveball with my step-son and it has been very consuming. Now, while Patrick and I are not married, and have no intentions of ever being so, (we have both been there and done that), his kids are still my step-children. I live with them, care for them and love them as if they were my own, as all step-parents should. I am very grateful that our blended family works wonderfully. We both get along with his ex-wife, Janet, and this is something that is very important when dealing with any life changing events.

Type 1 Diabetes Looks Like Me

Alex was always a smiling and laughing child. He is one of those children that can make just about anything funny. He has so much to say and wants everyone to know his thoughts. His energy is so contagious and hard not to dive into it head first. He can bring a smile to your face regardless of what your current mood its.

On March 14th, 2016, our lives were changed forever. Alex, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at 9 years old. Just like any other “bad news” a doctor gives you, we were completely freaking out. He is with us every other week during school and every 2 weeks in the summer. Since I am the primary care giver during this time, my mind started doing flips. How am I going to take care of him? What if I mess something up? How am I going to revamp the entire way that I cook? How expensive is his new diet going to be? The questions and worries were so overwhelming.

PostHeaderIcon What makes you feel like Angry Birds during summer break?

AngryBirds2
Summer break with 4 boys is nothing less than insanity. From the 15-year-old to the 9-year-old, it’s like Mom has to entertain them as if they were 3. I shouldn’t complain too much though. They definitely keep my butt moving and that is something I really need. Well, at least most days. I do have those ‘Mom Wants To Stay In Bed’ days. Not that I ever get them but, I digress.

If I had to pick the thing that makes me angry during summer break, I would have to be the fact that my kids seem to thing our backyard is a laundry basket. I am unsure why these 4 children can’t hang things up. They are in the pool 7 days a week which equals towels, swimsuits and clothes everywhere. Are they practicing for when they become husbands and think their wives are the maids? Maybe it’s just life with two teenagers and two nine-year olds that follow suit. I nix it as often as I can but, it’s an ongoing battle.

Kids-In-Pool
We took the kids to see The Angry Birds movie on Sunday. I am not to adult to admit that I love kids movies. I didn’t realize how much I could relate to a bird. Red is my hero. Now I am not saying that I am an angry person all the time but, I do tend to say what I am thinking at all times. I laughed so hard at some of the things Red did. There is no doubt that things seem much more funny when you can relate to the character. Read the rest of this entry »
