Blogger Drama…

June 7, 2010

Yea!~ I was one of the lucky blog owners that has been locked out of their blog for almost 12 hours. Finally, blogger and Google have fixed the problem and we are back on.

Unfortunately, some blog owners got up today and their blogs were gone. Completely gone. This is why I have spent the past few hours backing up my blog, I was sick today all morning wondering if it was going to happen to me. Fifteen months of hard work would have been just completely gone including my layout and graphics. If you have a blog I would suggest backing it up by exporting it to another site or to an external hard drive.

I have been considering going to Word Press where supposedly there are less problems like this. Back in the fall I switched to WP for a week or two and didn’t like it at all. Freaked out a bit and went back to blogger. Blogger has the ability to freeze your blog, and delete it. This has happened to a few bloggers that I know of, at Christmas Hip 2 Save was locked out and Freebies 4 Mom’s blog was completely deleted. I can’t imagine how sad and frustrating.

What platform are you using for your blog and if you went to WP are you happy there?

MyLitter’s Tips for traveling with children….

May 30, 2010

This will always be one of my favorite posts. It was such a memorable trip for us last year. But the advice still rings true! So if you are traveling with kids this weekend, you might want to think about a few things…

– Pack everything you THINK you might need and see if your husband can fit it all in.
– Always bring very messy snacks, like sticky candy and powdered donuts.
– Never underestimate how often a 3 year old needs to pee, and never try to call her bluff.
– Pack the diapers and wipes together in the bottom of a suitcase and pack it first so it is hardest to get out.
– #1 thing to do, forget your glasses so your husband has to do the ENTIRE drive by himself while you play on the laptop.

Tips for getting a hotel with 8 people.

– There is a reason they charge $39.99 a room. Fork out the extra $20 for the $59.99 and you might get clean towels.
– Always say, “It’s just my wife and kids” they never could imagine you forgot to tell them about the “other” 4 kids that will be sharing the room also.
– Get 2 queens not 1 king. The king only invites ALL the kids to sleep with you.
– Bring sleeping bags and make the big kids use those.
– Lay all 4 girls the wrong way on the bed… you can only fit 2 the correct way but if you pack them in like sardines you only have to bring in 2 sleeping bags. Hey, their small, and they still think it is fun to be uncomfortable all night.
– NEVER let the baby play with the remote. This is a hotel/motel you never know what channels they have. The 1 year old might flip to something COMPLETELY inappropriate with all the kids watching while Mom is in the bathroom and Dad is cleaning out the car…. They also charge you for the remote when it magically disappears and you can’t return it to the front.

Just a little advice from a Mom and Dad who torture their children by driving everywhere and not flying! 🙂


UPDATE: Coupon insert his weekend!

May 29, 2010

UPDATE: There will be a small General Mills coupon insert in SOME papers this weekend. I have not found a list of the coupons that it will contain…. I am still looking.
I would take a look while in the store at the coupons to see if they are worth buying the paper for.


What to do with expired coupons.

May 29, 2010

1. Send coupons that are just a month or two past their expiration date, since it takes time to ship, sort and distribute to personnel.
2. If possible, try to sort coupons into smaller envelopes in the same categories you would use. At the very least, sort them into FOOD and NON FOOD if possible.

**PLEASE sort the coupons into categories before shipping them to Donna. The great news is that she’s getting lots of coupons and has sent out over 8 packages to military bases in only one month with your help! If you do send her coupons, please consider including $1 to help her defray the cost of postage.
