Anderson’s Act of Kindness Rewarded

Yesterday, we went shopping at Walmart in Waterville to get just a few things. This was around 4:45. The parking lot was light in cars so we thought we would have a quick trip in and out.

That was not the case.

Unfortunately, a trip that would have taken a half hour took an hour and and 45 minutes! BUT...there is something wonderful that happened while in line. Something that made the trip all worth while.

Stories Written at Sharon’s Home

The kids are really going to town on their story books. They get more and more creative with each one.

I will decipher them for you because, well, Jayden is only 6 and Anderson is 7. They have come along way with their spelling! Just a year ago, Jayden could barely read so for her to be writing these stories is quite remarkable!

Sharon Doesn’t Understand Gas Prices

I don't think anyone does. It is so frustrating!!!

How does it work?

The gas price in Fairfield is $3.58 while in Norway it is $3.34. But just a few miles away in Auburn it is $3.59.

Sharon Took the Dr. Phil Personality Test

I saw this being posted today on Facebook and decided to check it out. Dr. Phil is a pretty well-trusted guy (How's that working out for you?) in the television world.

I decided to give it a go to see what this personality test said about me.

And it was dead on!

Kids Tell the Greatest Stories!

While shopping in Walmart, and not having very much money to spend, the kids wanted to walk down the toy aisle. They wanted to get an idea of what Santa could bring them for Christmas.

Yeah, it's getting to that time a year.

In the middle of the aisle was a bunch of back to school stuff. And that's where I saw them.

Making the Perfect S’more

Did you know it's an art form? Not me.

I never made s'mores as a kid. We never had extra money for things like that. So, when I met Chad he taught me about many things.

Little Boy Asks Santa To Help Stop Sister From Being Bullied

After reading this, I couldn't help but cry. It's so honest, sweet and, most of all, heartbreaking!

He told the story of an 8-year old who committed suicide after no longer being able to the pressure of going to school where the bully would wait to torture the little boy.

This letter got me.

Sharon’s Home Remedy For Fruit Flies Works!

It was getting so bad in the kitchen sink it felt like the scene from The Green Mile: when Michael Clark Duncan releases the badness into the air. Remember that?

Well, I was living it this past week.

Luckily, the internet and YouTube have endless information on how to do just about anything!
