Pigeons

We were driving down, coming from an eliminate your credit card debt seminar, we were on the road today and there were some pigeons on the side of the road. They were walking on the sidewalk when we came up to a stop light. As we were waiting for the light to change, the pigeons attempted to cross the part of the road where the cross walk is. They seemed to not care that cars were attempting to turn right and didn’t have any regard for the fact that they may get run over. It was pretty funny. Finally when a car sped up to turn, they flew away.

Water Skiing

I never have been able to learn how to water ski. I’m not sure if I will ever learn. When I was younger, our dad used to strap on the beginner skiis onto us. I don’t know if you remember those but they looked like regular skiis except the two skiis were tied together. I’m guessing so that the beginner, in their learning how to do something new doesn’t all of the sudden accidentally do a split and hurt something severely. He would put us on the beach and take off. It never failed that I would get about a cups worth of sand and or water in my mouth and would let go and never learned. Is this wackier than wacky scholarships, or do I just want to try this again I thought.  Perhaps I will have the nerve to try it again sometime later in life.

Relax

Fishing was always a relaxing thing for me, exciting also. When we were kids, we’d go to our aunts dock and we would bait the hooks ourselves, cast out our lines, and wait. We would wait, then wait, then wait, we used the red and white bobbers so when we saw that thing move, we whipped our poles back as fast as possible in hopes that we caught something big. I don’t think we caught much but it was exciting and fun. It was nice just sitting out there talking amongst ourselves, looking at the sun reflect off of the water. The best part of course is when we caught something, how exciting to see what we were going to pull in with our fishing poles.  This was about as exciting as learning how to get a scholarship back in my school days.

Currents

We went to the beach yesterday and we could not believe how strong the currents were. My husband and my daughter took their wake boards and went out to “surf” the waves. I looked down for just a fraction of a second and when I looked back up, there were about 100 feet away to my right. I thought, wow, I wonder how they got there that fast, fast like learning how to consolidate credit card debt. Then, I myself went in to catch a little coolness in the water as I was a bit hot from the sun.

Now I see why they floated so far away. If you weren’t careful, the tide was catching you and carrying you away. It’s a good thing I didn’t go too deep.

Crochet

Crocheting or any craft for that matter can be instrumental to your well being. I remember my grandmother teaching us how to crochet when we were younger. That has helped me throughout the years in having a hobby and something that I can do that gives me peace. If you don’t like crocheting, try needlepoint, or building something, or painting. Whatever it is, it will keep your mind from wandering and give you a sense of accomplishment when it’s completed. I have made things for other people also. I have made needlepoint bibs for friends and blankets, it’s really a fulfilling thing. It’s much better than watching tv all day or sitting there with your thoughts bored.

So when you’re bored from watching too many infomercials about how to get scholarships, pick up one of these hobbies.

Vacation

Taking a vacation is really important to get away every now and again. I had to drive about 7 hours away for an appointment the other day. Instead of looking at it like a bad thing, I decided to make a small “vacation” out of it. We had a blast, the drive was through country roads and was absolutely beautiful. It was a very peaceful drive, didn’t seem like a long trip at all. To be honest, looking at it that way made the appointment I had to go to seem not so bad. It was for credit card consolidation loans, pay off meeting.  It really felt more like a vacation than anything else. I think having a good outlook on things really makes a difference.

Bread

I am hooked on a new kind of bread for my sandwiches. We went grocery shopping yesterday and we are attempting to cut back on a few expenses, just to save up to go on a trip. So, we got through the isles, grabbing some store brand items that are just as good, if not better than the regular popular brands. It came down to the bread for sandwiches and my husband noticed that they had a sale on the Italian loaves that were store baked. He said they were only $1.00 each loaf so we figured we’d try it. We were pleasantly surprised, not only by the price. Our old loaves were about $2.00 per loaf, and we normally buy two which lasts us a week. The taste of this bread is phenomenal! And, the taste is much lighter so you dont’ get so much of the carbohydrate sleepiness after eating it. Sold! We will definitely be purchasing it again next time we go to the store.  With our savings, we could help with scholarships for college students and much more!

Discount Stores

I absolutely love discount stores, any kind, it doesn’t matter, as long as I can get nice things for less.  There is one discount store in particular that I not only get my clothes at but now my husbands and my children also.  I sold my hubby on them as well.  He used to go to these designer stores and pay about $100 for one pair of shorts, yes, I said that correct.  I never said anything but man, compared to my $10-$25 dollar pair at a discount store.  Feels as good as getting debt consolidation loans bad credit.  So, one day, I said, hey, let’s go shopping, I headed over to the man section and guess what, he actually found things he liked.  And now, he cannot get himself to go to the higher priced stores as he can get the same thing for less.

Rides

After my shift at the credit debt company I work for, I like to go have a little fun.  Last night, we went to an amusement park.  Our daughter is finally just a little over 42 inches so she can finally ride the bigger rides.  She still a little afraid of the roller coasters though, maybe in a few years.  So, we bought her a season pass, the only issue is that some of the rides she was very excited to ride, were not included in the pass.  I suppose that is a little normal at certain places, still would have been nice if they let us know.  The great news is that we only have to pay an extra $20 per year to add those extra rides on.  Not bad at all, it’s nice to see her having so much fun!

Videography

If you find yourself in the position of being a first-time wedding Videographer, realize that whether you are doing a favor for a friend or family member or whether you are making money, an honor and a huge responsibility have been entrusted to you. There are also many rewards to being a Videographer, you could even enter in to a contest and win money for a cruise, or win free money for college. Whatever your goal, Try to plan ahead and get as much done as possible so that you can be prepared, focused, and at your best on your big day.
