Notice to Crossings Book Club


I am writing because I will be cancelling my account with you the second I complete my obligation and will be doing that as quickly as I can afford to.
1. when I signed up I OBVIOUSLY misunderstood how often I would be getting featured selection info and HOW to opt out. I guess I thought it would be at the most once per month. In addition, I somehow chose the notify me via email option which I would never purposefully do for something coming directly out of my account.  I have now had three charges go through for items I didn’t want or need.  I kept the first shipment charged on 11/2 for $38.03 as one of the books ended up being a good book for my children at Christmas time and I was caught off guard by the shipment. However not even 18 days later I was charged again on 11/19 for $61.63 and now again not even 30 days later on 12/7 for $49.76. I sent the last shipment received back and will be doing so when this next one arrives. This is ridiculous and financially draining.


earlier I was trying to be nice on my facebook..but I think this should be titled. the “parent’s who don’t pay their share””…lmao

this is regards to whether it be money, time, coorperation, follow through, character develelpment, commitments, etc…… Read it and I pray that you weep!!…..PS UP FRONT…this is gonna be a very positive statement..I just have to really  express how much I emotionally need to be done with some people and the drama that they purposefully choose to live in continuously…I mean, even when given a clear ticket out and off that path, for whatever personal dysfunctional reason…they stay.  I lived my life to a short extent this way in my past but I can ho…

nestly say and be grateful to God..that I didn’t remain there long at all.  I am now in a place where it is by far EASY …and some days I feel so angry and frustrated while I see others responsible for the things I deal with, playing and having a great time…Occassionally and NOT often this does eat at me for about a second and only  because it doesn’t hurt me at all. I’m cool with me.\ You see…the befefits that I HAVE, LOVE and Hang with daily far outweigh the potential freedom in any way…   But when you have a momma bear and you mess with her cubs in any way, sometimes even the strongest women is going to feel it and truly want to retaliate in the most offensive animalistic form.   Luckily for me and mine, I walk with Jesus and he helps in those moments.  I have always described myself by saying “don’t mistake my kindness as a sign of weakness”…over the years I have just learned….that keeps me classy and well it keeps “them” exactly who they are kind of at bay…cuz of course, in reality, they know they SUCK. : )  I love my babies and they love me….we have fun, we play games, we dance, we love, we work hard, we make mistakes, we talk about it and we forgive.  I am blessed more than I probably could have ever been!!! p.s.. this is only personal really to someone who prolly won’t hear it from me per se…but if you feel anything in your heart…take a look and seek out your relationships to make sure you are doing all that you can to be who you need to be. Children might be counting on you…..xoxo PEACE….Merry Christmas… etc to all… Keep on moving forward and working together to make a better world for all….

verbal & emotional abuse IS Domestic Violence


verbal & emotional abuse IS Domestic Violence

I remember a long time ago like it was yesterday. I felt like I lived in the twilight zone. I worked in a Corporate environment with a bunch of fun and really upbeat people. I spent my days there but then when I got home it was like another world. The weirdest part is that I would talk with my spouse on the phone 30 minutes before I even got home just as I was leaving work and he would be fine, normal, loving.  In the time it took me to pick up my son and drive home things changed drastically.  Originally when it first started I was positive something horrible must have happened in those 30 minutes, he must have received a phone call with some terrible news or something because he was so different than the person I spoke with on the phone before I left work who couldn’t wait to see me, “his love”…. Eventually after many anquishing episodes of “what’s wrong” , “are you sure nothing is wrong” , “did something happen”????? which eventually escalated into him yelling horrible things at me and telling me”nothing is wrong but something is going to be if you don’t stop with your sh*t!!! etc etc…. It finally became the pattern…. I went from feeling as if I was in the twilight zone to kind of just feeling like this was my life and I just had to work harder, try to be better, so that he / WE could be happy.  Have you ever felt like this?????  Here is a really good link to help if so….. Start Here:

The Iphone ……<3


WOW….so, I have coveted the iphone for almost the past FOUR years.   I’ve been patient and waited because based on my life and circumstances, it wasn’t the smartest investment for me to make at the time.  THAT is totally not like me. I have to throw that out there because I really deserve the praise for patience. LOL…. I have never been a big delayed gratification person and believe me, it doesn’t always work in my favor. I get it. But this time I was good, I was patient and I waited until it was “feasible” and more appropriate for me to finally get the iphone. I only got the iphone4, not 4S (Siri, we will get aqcuainted soon..i promise) AND I only got 8GB because it was free with  a 2 year plan.  I do wish I would have paid the extra $50 and upgraded to 16GB but so far I am still having plenty of space and I have a ton of…. AMAZING …apps on my phone so far.  I will be upgrading in the future so I can download my whole itunes library but for now I am seriously one happy girl.  This has been the very best choice I have made regarding a purchase in a long time.  My favorite apps so far are Cozi for calendaring, I LOVE it! Catch for managing projects and ideas, Ebay and Paypal of course, for managing my online store “ ”   oh and of course Facebook, my major addiction : )  I also have started using wordpress on my iphone to manage this blog. Hopefully I get better with time. Those are the tops for now but I know there will be many more to come~

Wow…it’s almost the end of the kids football & cheer season…


I think I am sad. I must be CRAZY!!! Practice 4 nights a week then down to 3nights a week and all day Saturdays….8:30 AM to 6:00 PM…all the volunteer hours, laundry, snacks for the team.  I actually loved every second of it.  I’m grateful for the upcoming break but can’t wait to do the season again next year and am also looking forward to all the activities the kids do in between.  It makes our lives crazy but I wouldn’t change it for anything.  I’m so proud of both Miguel and Angelina, they have both really put a constant positive effort forward and come a long way each with their sport. OH AND the Scorchers are an amazing team…a wonderful and caring community of people and kids.  Go SCORCHERS…now all we have to do is win the playoffs and cheer competition!!!
