SafeSound Personal Alarm Thoughts?

What does everyone think about these?

I was texting with a friend the other day about all of the crap that has been going on in Santa Cruz County. Burglaries, missing people, gang violence, heroin addicts along the river, tweakers walking into your home, car and business trailer thefts, delivery box robberies off of your porch, murders and the list goes on and on.

Anyway, she mentioned to me that she is now going to the gym pretty early in the morning and having to walk to and from her car in a parking garage. There aren’t always people around to help if there was a need, so she was going to go and get a pepper spray. I told her I thought it was a good idea and I know that Big 5 sold them.

I spotted this, this morning. It looks pretty great. Easy to use. I wouldn’t put it on my purse, or backpack I don’t think though. Just because, a lot of the time, that is what the asshole will go for first. Maybe carry it in your hand, or on your keys? Maybe on the zipper on your jacket? Maybe have several in different places?

I also think this would be great for kids, boys and girls. Adults as well. All humans. Safety is pretty key in our world, unfortunately.

Getting assaulted is nothing new. It has gone on since the beginning of human kind. Why not be safer in any way you can. You have nothing to lose. I may have to put these in everyone’s stockings for Christmas this year. Not a bad idea at all.

What do you think? Would love your opinion… 🙂



Sometimes I see something on the television that just wrecks me. The tears are flowing and won’t stop. It really makes me think though. It also reminds me how hard death affects us. Today it made me think about love. How much you love someone. How deeply. How much you yearn for them. How they are so much a part of your world and the love you feel, that when they are gone a piece of you goes with them. To feel that passion in your life must be a priority for us all. I want to always feel that intensity. Needed. Looked at from across the room with so much love and desire you can feel the heat rise up through your body. Love so deep. 😀



I catch myself holding my breathe. Shallow breathes. Uneven breathes. While sitting watching tv. While in my car. Relaxing to go to bed at night. It’s odd. Especially when I catch myself. Just holding on. 😀



I may be intense will my feelings, thoughts and how I speak. I am full of fire, love, compassion and worry, all in one big bundle. I want everything to be right in every way, for everyone. Sometimes I just want to shake people and tell them to do the right thing. Sometimes I overwhelm people. I am honest. I am not a fool. I give the benefit of the doubt. I am also a fact and truth seeker. I wear my heat on my sleeve. I want to smile, all the time. I want to hug, everyone. I don’t like uncomfortableness. I don’t like deceit and lies. I need truth and calm all the time. I thrive on words. Conversations. Feeling close. I thrive on love. Love from every person I know and meet. 😀


Home Based Business

I’ve recently started working again. I’ve done a little this and that over the years, but really having just focused on one thing and really strived to make it great.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been educating myself. Researching. Following guidelines. Getting mentored. Making connections and so much more. 
Being home with my family is my priority. No one will change that decision for me. 

It’s really hard to work on your own. It’s  really hard to not feel defeated. It’s really hard to make those contacts and have people take you seriously and to trust in you. To not feel like you are burdening them, or tricking them into something. I feel like if someone knows me they would trust in me. Know that what I am doing is great and something I believe in. Something that I trust. A business that I trust in. 

On that note, today I will not feel defeated. I will keep moving forward. Find clients that believe in this company and their products as I do. Those that want a healthier home. Those that want to lead healthier lives. Those that want to save money and shop easy and at any time they like. 

This is going to be great and I will keep moving forward. Even on those hard days. I will find the real trust support. In return, I will see the smiles on their faces. That will be my reward. 😀


52 Hike Challenge – Hike 2

Friday I was able to get in my second hike. My Husband even joined me. I wasimg_5374 so happy. We went early before he needed to start working for the day and got about 3 1/2 or 4 miles in. It was so chilly and lovely out. Here are a few photos for you to enjoy.


Can’t forget my silly socks for the day!  Hahaha!! 🙂



Raising Husbands & Fathers

I don’t know whose photo this is, but I hope they don’t mind me using it.15032168_255671434847402_4705620029773180601_n.jpg

I love this photo. I’m always worrying about who my children are and what types of adults they will be. I want them to be kind, strong, stable and loving towards their own family one day. To support and defend their family. All I can do is my best.

I love my 4 Boys and know that some days I really feel like I am screwing them up. I hope that isn’t the truth. I know I can be hard on myself and them as well some days. I can only hope that I have instilled something amazing in them. Something wonderful that others will see, so that people gravitate towards them and they are surround with love, always.  🙂
