Can I take a sick day?

I need a sick day. Looks like I have strep throat again, waiting for the regular test to come back and confirm, but red throat, swollen, with white patches. Pretty sure it's strep, I've had it enough to know.


Hopefully the antibiotics will kill it's butt and I can be back to being awesomesauce.

So I can no longer say I have never broken a bone. I have a fractured rib, a small one. The doctor said it's nothing too bad. How did I fracture my rib? Flying AJ surprise attack. Just wanted to update you guys. I'm trying hard to work but keep getting distracted, that would be thanks to my meds. Life goes on. Got a few reviews to do.


In other news guess who got the cover for the Winter issue of Dulcelina Magazine? Me that's who.

Really People: War on Halloween

So I was watching the news with Papa this morning, something I try not to do. Between the craziness going on in the world and Papa yelling at the people on the tv, it's just not worth it to me. But a headline story caught my eye.


War on Halloween. Are you kidding me people??

I didn't catch the whole story, but basically it was saying how Halloween is offensive to some and we should be calling it a Harvest Festival, and one of the anchors say can't we just let the kids be kids. I flat out pulled a Papa and said to the tv Halloween is a Harvest Festival you idiots.

Samhain. Harvest Festival. Halloween. 

Let me educated you a little. Halloween was originally a Celtic holiday called Samhain, and was the last Harvest Festival of the year. It was the end of the year, and the beginning. It started the "dead" half of the year. It was when the good Celtic people would feast upon the best of the harvest in preparation for the coming cold.

Samhain is also the day when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. 

Which in the Pagan aspect we use it as a day to remember our beloved dead. But since the veil is so thin you can't tell exactly who is dead or alive, who is good or bad. So they started the tradition of wearing masks to confuse the dead. We also owe our jack o'lanterns to them. The story is they used to carve turnips and leave them out to ward off evil spirits. They would also during their feasts set a place for their beloved dead.

Trick or Treat. 


Everyone disguised them, and it was bad to turn away anyone that asked for a bit of feast. Sounds like trick or treating to me. Dress up in a costume, knock on people's door and ask for candy.

War on Halloween? Doubtful, sounds like people are starting to see it for what it was originally.

BioTerra is AHHH-Mazing

We all know how much I love trying herbal supplements, anything that can help right? Bonus points for being natural and fun! Enter BioTerra Herbs!

BioTerra Herbs, a California-based company passionate about clean and honest herbal products, showed its true colors in June 2014 with the announcement of its entire line of herbal supplements passing the rigorous and independent, third party Non-GMO Project Verification process!

Non-GMO Project Verified affirms BioTerra Herbs’ passion and never-ending strive for providing only the best herbal products possible. With this exciting feat under our belt alongside our time-tested herbal formulas and side-splitting packaging, BioTerra Herbs is now a triple threat. The entire line of herbal supplements that cover health issues consumers see every day, prove to be the healthiest alternative to supplementing a healthy, honest, and happy lifestyle.
I jumped on the chance to try these out. I picked out AHHH (detox) and as a bonus they sent me trial sizes of Z-Z-Z (sleep) and Shush (snoring). All products were amazing and I love the fun names. I actually want to order some more.


I'm still using the detox actually, I have issues with following through straight but I like to do them still. The sleep one was amazing, I had a bout of insomnia and figured I would give it a shot. I was out in 10 minutes, and I woke up feeling rested the next day instead of tired like usual. Though I don't like taking things to help me sleep because of the kids. I don't know if the snoring actually helped, since one I sleep alone usually and only snore when sick, but I did feel more rested when I used it.

Definitely some awesome products, I definitely want to pick out some more soon.

I received the products mentioned for free in exchange for my honest opinions.

Just Some of My Favorite Things #OSBlog

Time for some more Old School Blogging with Elaine from Miss Elaine-ous Life. This time we are doing some of our favorite things, prompted of course.



Sit down restaurant
Denny's hands down. It's kid friendly, great food, and not too expensive. The kids like it, they have kids eat free nights. They don't make you feel rushed or embarrassed if your kids make a mess.




Cookie
Anything from the Starbucks bake case, yummmmmm! Yeah I know the picture isn't a cookie but I don't have any of pictures of cookies.


Bath product scent
Clean smelling! Really I don't like a lot of smelly smelly stuff, some of it makes me sneeze or cough, so I like anything that has a clean scent to it, though I love coconut too.




T.V. shows
All my shows end! Welp Buffy, Charmed, True Blood lol. Actually Bob's Burgers and American Dad are my favorites lately, plus Once Upon a Time and Supernatural.



Flower/plant
Orchids, rose, tulips, daisies. Anything really, I love getting flowers and it doesn't happen often.


Bad-for-me snack
Ben & Jerry's Half Baked.



Magazines
Click is pretty much the only one I read, besides Dulcelina Magazine of course! (Hint hint: that's the one I work for)



Hobby (besides blogging)
Writing, photography, painting, creating, anything with glitter.



Holiday
Halloween! Yes it is a holiday. I'm Pagan, I call it Samhain, it's the start of the new year. 


Girls Night Out activity
Bar hopping! Though it's been umm almost 3 years since the last time I went.


via Etsy (getting it soon)


Date night
We usually stay in, just without the kids. Heheh. Though now that he has his bike maybe some long rides will be in our future date nights.
