You can see from the list << there on the side, I love reading other peoples blogs. I really do! Although Pinterest has taken over from that somewhat (the Perfect Mommie bloggers DO get a little depressing sometimes and Pinterest means I can steal ideas without getting the guilt trips, lol).
One of my favorites was shown to me by friends - Abby chronicles her farm in America and her day to day life - like all those 'home style' blogs, I find it fascinating to read. It would be something I would LOVE to do, and will do someday when I'm not so sick and lazy ;P.
But, she re-introduced me to a blog. I won't link it, I have spoken about it before, so those who 'know' will know whom I am talking about. But I recently was lead back by Abby's blog and all I can say is DAMN!! There's some GOOD money to be made by
Those poor things.
Life really does seem to kick them around a lot!
When you start to read it, you sway between feeling sorry for them and headdesking a lot.
I have come to the conclusion though, that ** I ** should start asking for donations too!! After all, they 'seem' to have many of the same things ** I ** have!!!
Other than the IBS ( **coughbullshitcough** ) that is. I have a feeling that if you eat too much shit, shit is what's gonna happen..... (see what I did there? heehee)
Anyhoo, as someone with Spondylolisthesis (bad back), prosopagnosia (face blindness), social anxieties, panic attacks, recovering PTSD, depression, dermatitis, suspected fatigue-y stuff, sensory issues, some OCD-y stuffs, migraines, two kids, one husband, two rabbits, four lizards, one (sick :( ) snake, two cats and now pregnancy - I match her AND pass her, leaving her in my dust, baby!!
Oooh, editing to add that I ALSO have a heart murmur-y thingy AND suspected childhood dyslexia TOO!!!
I don't have the extra spouses that she has, thank God - I'm happy with my one and only deity!
So, as we are not rolling about in piles of filthy lucre (how DARE we not be??? It's an OUTRAGE, AN OUTRAGE I SAY!!) I decided that she is not the only one that can
Now, as I understand these things from reading that blog, I *can* offer to do several things
1) Make jewellery and sell it to you
2) Make said jewellery, bless it - or in my case, pray over it - and sell it to you for a little more
3) Say thanks
4) Do a Blessing - or in my case, pray for you
5) Send you some religious-y things that I have blessed/prayed on or over to you
Now, as people have informed me, if I follow the gist of this other blog, I don't ACTUALLY have to send anything out. I can simply claim that I'm too sick/in pain/that things occurred that prevented me from getting to the post office. I also don't have to thank anyone, but simply yell at them for not giving more - after all, I am entitled to this. Apparently.
