Meeting At The Bus Stop

Thanks for the post from Barney Crosby

Afternoons are my favorite time of day during the week. Monday through Friday at 3 o’clock, I put the leash on our dog Bingo, set my las Vegas adt security and lock the door then head to the bus stop to meet my daughter. I must confess that I was very nervous about her riding the bus home from school because she just started kindergarten this year. Because I work from home I could easily have picked her up every day. However, she insisted that she is a “big girl” going to the “big school” and wanted to ride the bus with the rest of her friends in our neighborhood. It’s so sweet to watch her skip down the bus steps with her back pack on and her lunch box in hand. Her face lights up with a big smile when she finds me and Bingo in the crowd and she runs over to give us a big hug. On the walk home we talk about her day and make our plans for the evening. It’s always the bright spot of my day!

Telling Parents About New Home

Author: Joseph Sandoval

I just bought my first house. It has been a huge move for me, but I am feeling very good about it. The hardest part was telling my parents. When I was renting a place, I think they always thought there was a chance I would live in the same town as them, but once I bought a place it was permanent. While they were and are very happy for me, I know they wanted me to live closer. I tried to let them know it was in a great neighborhood and that I felt very safe. I went on to tell them I had Long Beach ADT Security watching over me, but I could tell that wasn’t enough. My mom wanted to be watching over me and wanted to be a short car ride away. She worries about me and will always think of me as a little girl. I know she will always think of me that way, but she needs to eventually realize I am growing up and eventually accept this as my new home. I hope they will make the trek out her one day, but until then I think they will always want me to come back home.

Good Vibrations' Blossom Organics Pure Pleasure Arousal Gel Review

I really enjoy the Good Vibrations website. It is very female friendly and easy to navigate.  You might remember me posting about them before. Today I have a product of theirs that I would like to review.

I was sent the Blossom Organics Pure Pleasure Arousal Gel to try out.  I'll admit, I was skeptical. I just didn't think it would work at all.  I figured it was just a regular cream/gel that wouldn't do anything at all to my "private parts". I never expected it to really add or take away from my arousal. Here is a picture of the product...

One morning things were getting frisky with my hubby and he pulled the bottle out. He said we should give it a try & started to rub some on me. Initially it was just cold but quickly began to heat up. Then it started tingling.  I'll be honest - it became way too intense for both of us. We had to stop and actually wipe it off.  I was honestly very surprised!

Now, that may seem like a negative review but really it isn't. Yes, it is true that I wouldn't purchase this product myself but not because it didn't work. Instead, it worked too well! It was just too strong and intense for us.  That means it works though!  Others out there might like the intensity.  I suggest visiting Good Vibrations and trying it if you are into that. I guarantee you will feel something with this product!
