Starting Something New?

So lately i have been looking around my house and thinking wow we have accumulated so much stuff it’s time to declutter! So i’m thinking of starting a little series about decluttering? Once a week i will pick a small area and completely organize it! i’m talking top to bottom spotless! I think this will be helpful with me starting my own business and getting more organized!

So these are some areas i’m going to start with:

Each wall/section of my bedroom

Each section/ wall of my daughter room

Bathroom.

Car!!

Kitchen

Living Room

And who knows what else!!

This is going to be a long series but i think the fact that i am openly telling everyone that i’m going to do this will give me the motivation i need to get it done! So stay tuned. I was also thinking of filming some youtube videos about this but i am unsure on how far i will get with that! it’s been a while since i filmed a youtube video and am not sure if i’m ready to get back into that yet!

So let me know what you guys think and feel free to join in with me! Also stay tuned for some mommy posts! I would like to do a nighttime routine, morning routine, toddler meals, potty training post! Lots more to come

Man i just love blogging! i’m so happy i started this!

See you all soon, Jamie

Mommy problems…

How come whenever my child gets sick theres a 98% chance i will get sick to.. Unfortunatly this week i am not apart of that 2 percent..

We live in canada and currently the weather cannot make up its mind. 2 weeks ago we had the air on and then last week we had to turn the heat on it was so cold.. 

WTF Canada!! Get it together! It feels like everyones getting sick due to this rapid weather change..  I never get sick and so when i do its pretty much the end of the world.. (In my head atleast) 

Oh and of course did i mention my daughter was only sick for about 24 hours and im now going on day 3!! Yep #momlife

See you soon, Jamie ❤

App’s You Can Make Money From!!

Hey everyone, so i figured as most of us are probably mommy’s and some of us are even stay at home mom’s id share some apps i’ve found the can make you some extra money. This will by no means take the place of a full income, but if your bored or if you are just looking for something to do then this may be for you!

You will need a smart phone and possibly a computer for some apps!

I also want to point out before i begin that i live in Canada so these apps work in Canada. I will try to find what other countries they work in as i know most of you are from the US! I also have an iPhone so some apps may not be available for android but i will try my best to find out as well!

Field Agent – This app pays you to do small tasks at local stores near you. Tasks can range from different prices and in different locations each time. It can be free to complete the task or sometimes there is a purchase required. This app is available for iPhones and androids and is available in Canada and the united stated! (I am not sure about other countries)

Qriket – Qriket is an app that gives you a chance to win money by spinning a wheel. Basically you just watch a short ad and then it gives you a “free spin” then you choose either blue or yellow and if the wheel lands on the color you choose then you win the amount of money shown. I have never won more then 10 cents so it isn’t a huge money maker but over time this can really add up. This app is available in Canada and the United States for iPhone. It is not yet available for android but there is a waiting list on Facebook so i am assuming that means it should be out soon!

App Trailer & Perk Tv – These two apps are generally the same. You watch videos/ads and you earn points. The points can then be used to redeem prizes such as gift cards to various stores or just Paypal gift cards which you can deposit into your bank account. I personally do not use these apps as i find their kind of a pain but i have red many reviews of people using these for legit pocket money. Both of these apps are available in Canada and the United States and are available for both iPhone and Android.

Checkout 51, Zweet & Snap by Groupon – These 3 apps are a little different as you don’t make money directly from them but off what you have already purchased. They each have “Special” products on each week and if you purchase that product from the grocery store you upload a picture of your receipt and it gives you some money back. The amount given back varies for each item but it is essentially like a rebate! Why not make money for house hold essentials you have to buy anyway! All three of these apps are available in Canada and the United States and are available for both iPhone and Android.

Here are a few more i found while looking but aren’t available in canada so i wasn’t able to try them:

ibbota, Cartwheel by target, Gigwalk and Shopkick.

That’s is for now i know there is SOO many more but these are a few i’ve found in my travels. I really like these kinds of posts so i am going to be doing one about sites to make money from. I hope this helps someone. Even just gives you something to do while your bored!

See you soon, Jamie<3

Conversations With My 2 Year Old – Week 5 FROZEN OBSESSED!

So i’m a day late on my conversations with my two year old post but that is because my sales are really starting to pick up! But that’s no excuse so heres the story. Basically my child is exactly what the title says, frozen obsessed!

On Saturday she was taking a nap with grandma. When she decided it was time to wake up she rolled over pryed my mom’s eyes open and said “do you want to build a snow man!” Now of course this is just hilarious but can you imagine being woken up from a sleep to that!

Then on sunday she was outside playing and she ran up to me and said “mom, it’s coronation day!” and then ran away. When i went to follow her out to the back yard she was standing at the top of the slide yelling “in summer!!!” and some other mumbles that sounded like the rest of olaf’s song.

For those of you that have never seen the movie you probably have no idea what i am talking about, but if you have children then you can probably relate on so many levels to this! She has always loved the movie but i think as she gets older she is now fully understanding it and singing the songs. Man is she cute! I love listening to her sing and say these funny quotes. I hope this gave everyone a nice laugh as well.

I am hoping this week is a much better week then last, i have so many things to do and am completely decluttering the house! Starting with the bedrooms so stay tuned for that!

See you soon, Jamie ❤

Friday Night Rant…

Hello everyone, i’m going to start this off by saying i’m so sorry for being so MIA this past week and a half! My goal was to do 3 posts a week but this last week has been crazy. First off earlier this week my great aunt passed away and it was very hard on all of us as we were very close.

On top of that i had to call 911 for my mother as she fell and couldn’t get up. Thought she broke something so we called them. Turned out she pulled her hamstring but it has caused a large blood clot in her leg and will possibly need surgery.

To top it all of i’ve been having an ongoing coparenting issue that i just don’t see getting resolved any time soon.

I am working on getting a few posts prewritten tonight, more informational ones so hopefully i can put out more consistent posts. Thank you all for being so understanding and i will talk to you guys soon.

See you soon, Jamie

Conversations With My 2 Year Old – Week 4 (BONUS: Lets Chat)

Well it’s that time of the week again and i’m back with another “conversations with my 2 year old.” This week i didn’t have anything planned until nap time today.. I went to get my daughter up from my her nap and i smell something funny, i just figured she had pooped no big deal. Until i went in and found poop smeared all over the wall! she looked at me and said “Look mom i drew a sun!” As impulse i started to go a little crazy and she said “but mom i just wanted to draw you a picture” Oh my goodness it’s a good thing my little girl is cute because she drives me crazy sometimes! I talked to a few other moms and apparently their kids have done this more then once.. Well great! Like i said it’s a good thing she’s cute!

On a lighter note i’m happy to announce that with the help of a fellow blogger introduced me to an app called “Mom Chat” I know it is available for iOS, but i’m unsure if it is available for android. If any of you using android try it please let me know! If you would like to contact me my username on the app is “jammer_harv” I would love to get in touch with you all and meet some new mommy friends! Thank you to my new friend Marielli_ for showing my this app!

I hope to hear from you guys! See You Soon, Jamie ❤

Dealing With Mental Illness As A Young Mother.

Unknown

Hey everyone. I have typed this post up about 4 different times as it is a very difficult subject for me to admit and talk about. But i feel as a young mother trying to reach other moms out there that this is something i need to write about. It is a huge part of my life and i really hope i can help someone by sharing my experience.

So to start out i suffer from severe anxiety disorder. Pretty much everything makes me anxious, whether it be going to the park, visiting a family member or even getting groceries. It doesn’t matter what the activity is i always have some type of fear. This started when i was younger around the time my grandma passed, my parents divorced and i had to switch schools, around grade 7. Over the years it has come and go and now about 8 years later i find myself in the worst state i’ve ever been in my entire life. Its never been this bad. I recently dropped out of college because i couldn’t physically get myself into a classroom. I tried, i don’t know how else to explain it other then whenever i tried to go to class i would feel sick. So sick that id have to run to the bathroom. And i would continuously feel this way until i removed myself from the situation. I can’t work, i can’t hangout with friends, i can’t even go to a restaurant without some case of anxiety.

I tried going to see a social worker and i could barely get myself to the appointments. I felt the same symptoms and just stopped going. I am trying out workbooks and i will be sure to let you know how they go.

The thing that bothers me the most is I don’t know why i feel this way. My worker keeps telling me to find the “why’s” but i have yet to find them. I feel like my daughter is my security blanket. She eases some of the anxiety.I am trying so hard to get through this but i’m finding myself so deep in the problem and i only seem to be getting deeper.

I am still working on a solution to my problem but the moral of this post is that if your suffering, your not alone! Your never alone and it’s so important to get help! I will always be here to talk and i encourage you to speak. I am sorry this post is all over the place. Even though it is hard to talk about it needs to be out there. I have written this about 4 times now and i’ve been working on it for a solid week. It’s hard, it’s very hard to admit you need help but once you do it can only go uphill from there!

I will see you all soon, Jamie
