I Can’t Stop…. busy busy

Over worked and stressed


I realized there is an additional side affect of me being depressed and not resting. I seem to also overload myself. I am sure you have noticed all the posting of giveaways and blogger opportunities. Yep if it is a free link I sign up for it. lol  I do this when I am hypo-manic as well as when I am depressed. I feel blank and I just keep taking on things, helping others and huge amount of giveaways for others.

I am so going to be overwhelmed in a few short days but I can’t stop signing up for things. I go to Facebook blogger groups I am part of and I will see a giveaway open for bloggers to join and I argue with myself. You have too much going on now, you are not going to sign up for another one, this blog is not meant to be a blog full of giveaways, and I leave the page then soon I find myself back there filling out forms. :-(

Moods, A Roller Coaster of Life

Hi Everyone!!! Just here today to talk a bit about Moods and how quickly they can alter with Bipolar or Bipolar II.

Faces of Moods


I am Bipolar II per my diagnosis many years back now, I tend to rapid cycle which if you don’t know what that means here goes my best description; In any given moment my mood can change for the better or worse and sometimes where others don’t even notice it but I never miss it as most of the mood shifts are internal. Your mind races and your moods do the same. One  moment you are depressed and having that lonely dark feeling and the next your cracking jokes and dancing around playing with your kids, then you can loose that feeling and depression kicks back in or maybe anger, frustration kick in. Sometimes a mood can last days, or moments you never really know and don’t always spot it either.

Lately, for me, I am back on the rapid cycle roller coaster, and I dislike it very much. My already disorganized life just gets

The Parenting of Teens, Drama

I love my two girls, both teens, they are special people. They are kind to others and loving beings but the teenage know it all, you don’t understand bologna is getting to me. I noticed a big change in my older daughter when she turned 16. She got her license and is doing well with the driving, but her attitude, wow, way out of line all the time. I know she has no clue what she is doing or saying to me and her sister but she can really make you feel badly. She plays the guilt game rather well and I spent last night eating until I went to bed because her and I got into a fight, I was telling her to stop being so nasty all the time. I know over eating isn’t helping either of us, but it is what I do!

I Fear Not!

By Bob Brotchie/Anglia Counseling

We all recognise fear and I’m sure we can all describe the thoughts and emotions associated with fear.

There is a healthy fear of course. The ‘fight or flight’ (or become immobile) state when we are threatened by a risk of harm, emotional or physical and which is natural, short living, brief onset (acute) and can be moved away from in reasonable time.

Glass Handbags Luxury Bags

I am super excited once again to be part of this giveaway being hosted by my friend at couponfreestuff. A glass handbag, who doesn’t like luxury bags??  I like them but have never owned one. Here is your chance to own a great luxury handbag.  See the review below and enter to win using the rafflecopter form below. Giveaway ends 08/31/12 so don’t delay! 

The Review by CouponFreeStuff:
For me, as a woman, there is nothing more exciting or exhilarating than owning and carrying a beautiful, luxury handbag.  I have had a long love affair with handbags and if someone had asked me which of my many bags were my favorite, I probably could not have picked just one.  But that was before I was introduced to Glass Handbags Luxury Bags.
Founded in 2010, Glass Handbags offers some of the most beautiful bags my designer, bag loving eyes have ever seen.  What makes these bags so unique is the integrated lighting system that creates not only function but an elegant style as well. The built-in panel light is there for you as soon as you open the bag. I know I have been out a million times and tried to find something in my bag where the lighting was less than desirable.  I would always get frustrated because I knew the item I was looking for was in there somewhere, I just could not see it.  I no longer have that problem with Glass Handbags. Their patent pending handbags are handmade by skilled craftsmen in three different expert areas:
Leather, Hardware and electronics.  What other handbag can say that?

InfraShine #Giveaway

I am super excited to be part of this giveaway! It is being hosted by my good friend over at Coupon Free Stuff . You can enter right here on my blog by using the rafflecopter form at the end of this post.. Best of luck to you all!! 


I have always enjoyed curling, straightening, and blow drying my hair.  I know it sounds weird as most women look at this as a necessary evil. Even though I enjoy this task, it isn’t always without it’s pitfalls.  Use the wrong styling tool and your Do can become a Don’t!!   I have used many tools on my hair over the years ( too many to keep track of) and the outcome has sometimes been less than desirable.  

Some curling irons and dryers can do more damage to your hair than than create a great hairstyle.  I have used irons that have scorched my hair and dryers that have left my hair full of static.  But those days are over thanks to Infrashine products .  I was absolutely thrilled to try the Infrashine ceramic spring 1″ curling iron.


Be Yourself

I came across this on Facebook and I have to say it hit home with me, so I am sharing it!!

Please remember these words!
