Weekly Update/Friday Follow

Oh boy it's 3am! I got home a little bit ago and am waiting for medicine to kick in. I've had a sinus infection for a week now and can't lay down until something kicks in for the coughing involved so why not write, right? :)

So, now that I have graduated and been given more responsibility at work, a raise and more income potential... I have also been given a schedule change. If I wanted to work days, I would have had the opportunity to do that but I had to go back to the hours I used to have. The starting hours anyway. So now I'm 5:00pm to 1:30am. Yes, people do call that late. Redmosqui can't believe it but it's actually pretty busy. And it's been so busy lately, I haven't be able to read anything at all. So of course, I am still getting up at about 8:00 am with the girls do start our day. I do have very long days. It's rough and exhausting but worth it. I miss reading all of the blogs on a daily basis so I took someones advice and I started my own Dysfunction of Motherhood page on Facebook and I am in the process of "Liking" all of the blogs on my Followers list that have a Facebook page so that I can have an easier time with keeping up and knowing when everyone has updated. I started one tonight while coughing up a lung or two and hope to have everyone added. Redmosqui tried to teach me about setting up RSS feeds but I am just way too tired to understand it all honestly. He's actually been educating me on them for a few weeks now. Facebook is quicker and easier. It's taking over the world, right? I just have to figure out how to get it linked onto here. I'm sure I'll forget for the next week or so!

So that's that. In other news I have something really funny to post that my daughter did at school but I can't do it until I can upload the picture. I can't upload the picture until my camera battery is charged. I need a spare camera! Mother's Day is just around the corner..... Ok, that was me daydreaming. We just dropped $440 on our AC today. Isn't that always grand? But on the upside, we did get those Lifetime filters. The ones you just clean yourself and supposedly lower your energy costs enough to pay for itself and reduce dust so after a while you never have to dust your house. If you go back to my very first post ever on here.... It was actually about dusting and my frustrations with it. So, ladies who hate dusting.... I'll let you know how these filters work. Of course I need time to clean my house and get it dust free to begin with. Too bad this company isn't paying me to review their product or do a giveaway or something like that. None-the-less, I will update about these air filters and let ya'll know if it's worth it! I for one... would be a really happy girl if I don't have to dust anymore. Especially with all of the books and collectibles we have in our house. It's a long daunting task that doesn't get done very often to be honest. One less thing to do is always welcome.
