Is it too much to ask for???

Sitting here in my room all alone cleaning. Now let me just remind you I do have a fiancĂ© who sleeps in the same room and half this sh*t is his. I understand he works all week and usually only gets one day off, if that. His boss has him scheduled for over 45 hours a week and calls him all the time to come in if anyone else calls in. Sometimes he works over 12 hrs a day!! I understand yes he's tired, but I'm tired too. I can't go to bed til our 3 kids are sleeping, and I have to wake up by 645 to get our daughter of to school and usually our 3 yr old wakes up by then. I take care of 3 other kids after school that are not even ours. I cook and I clean up after everyone. So anyways yesterday since he had to work he said that he'd help me clean all day today because it was his day off... But what happens like always?? He wakes up late and then plays on his phone half the day.. Then he helps out with like one thing but keeps disappearing every two seconds. So I keek asking for help with our room an of course he can't do that. I'm stuck doing it alone like always. It pisses me off I do everything myself. His friends and co workers always come first. They call, he runs... I'm just getting sick of it. Am I over reacting??? Am I being selfish? Should I just suck it up and do everything myself always?? Tell me what you think.

Organizing my Blog

So I've come to the conclusion that my blog is no where near organized and is just kind of all over the place. Once I have my internet back up and running this coming week I really need to sit down and get it together!!! I want to be able to have different columns... Like recipes, favorite and least favorite makeup, reviews, advice, etc. I know this is going to be a long process because I have no idea where to start. Any advice is welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Just a random post about me on this random Thursday

So I don't have an exciting title for this post. Honestly I don't even know how many people actually read my posts or follow my blog, if any. I don't know how interesting I actually am either. What I do know is that I am a normal 29yr old, mom of 3 who likes to blog and I love makeup and trying new products. I also love subscription boxes. It's always a fun surprise to have in your mailbox every month. I love doing reviews for companies but not all my posts are review related. I like to blog about everything and anything and I try to blog as much as everyone else but that proves to be a big task for me. I have my youngest home with me all day, everyday. Then I have my neice here too. They butt heads more then they get along. She's a big crier and that just takes a toll on anyone. Then by after school my two oldest are home along with two of their cousins. I find it exhausting everyday to just do normal things any person would do. I'm diabetic and have diabetic neuropathy, an under active thyroid (which makes me more tired then normal), my legs are always swollen and water pills don't help... I mean I am by no means looking for pity, I'm just saying that I just don't get to post as often as I like and I'm pretty sure I'm not half as interesting a some of these blogs (if not all of them) that I follow. So that's basically my post for today. Thanks for reading if you did!

Happy Mothers Day

I just wanted to stop and take the time today to wish every mother out there a Happy Mothers Day. I hope no matter where you are or what you did, you had a great day! I know I had a wonderful day just spending time with my 3 kids today. My 8 year old had his first soccer game of the season today an he played a great game! Now we are just finishing up dinner and getting ready for bed since there is school tomorrow and my oldest has a busy day tomorrow... 
I also have a busy day tomorrow with two back to back appointments.
So for now I will clean up and then wait til my hubby gets out of work so we can just relax. 
I'm also waiting the arrival of my mother. She is on her way home from Florida. I can't wait.

So I know I haven't been on my blog in awhile. We've had family members move in and out of our house like crazy, like we are some boarding house or something. Yet I would never turn away a family me never in need. It is nice to have our house back to ourselves now. Now all we have to do is clean it. Really good spring cleaning going on here. We've also had to travel to Massachusettes for cheer competition, only to come in last place because of stupid disqualifications. I've been sick the past two weeks because my niece that I watch came here sick and it made my blood sugar go haywire and made me really sick. Then today we had to put our daughter on a PINS petition. Which was a hard decision to make but it's something that has to be done. So yea there are many other things I can ramble on about but let's get into my upcoming reviews. I have some new subscription boxes I will be reviewing an blogging about on here, I also have other products like razors, Special K Coffee drinks, Oatmeal, and a few other things I want and need to review. Also I was chosen for the Sargento Vox Box. Yummy! So be on the lookout for some new posts from me in the next few days to couple of weeks!!! 

Have a great day!

Fire Safety

I have been going back and forth in my head about how I was going to write this post. I have been over it time and time again. The day after Valentine's Day, my oldest son and his father's family lost two little boys to a fire. The boys were my son's cousins, his father's nephew's, and his father's niece's sons. His father's niece also lost her sister, which was her best friend, in that fire. The house was a total loss too. The people who made it out was the grandmother (the owner), the niece's boyfriend, the niece's nephew, and the niece's one month old son. Her 7 year old and 3 year old passed away due to smoke inhalation. It's such a tragic thing. My son's father's niece said the boys were right behind her on the way out the door but when she got out they had turned around and went back to their room and they were found under their bed. So please everyone, talk to your children about fire safety. I know fires are scary but they need to know an escape plan and route to help save their lives.
