This seems to happen all to often I have a great uplifting and inspiring story and I am having issues getting it out. I am have to do a video blog and link it. I have been missing so much that I feel like there is so much that needs caught up on!
Yea it is basically Hemp CBD Oil with no THC. Yes no THC. I know most Hemp is 3%< ours is grow and extracted very different. You will never have oil of this quality until you buy from this comapny. Want to earn money with it? Let me know I will get you started (it is free FYI).
Who Knew That Hemp Would Be Hip?
I did! Why? My father and myself have been using it. I am glad to see something like an MLM with the highest quality I have found as far as the oil goes with the best prices! I get asked A LOT what can this do if it does not have THC. THC is not the actual medicinal part. CBD is! I know some will argue with me about that. Oh well. This is not something I read and decided to follow. I did research and tried it. Then, hoped on this chance. Club8 is waiting to merge.
First Off Let’s Start With The Easiest One
Well, I have been making simple and vlogs for YouTube. I have several reasons why. Mostly to be informative and helpful. The kids contribute too! We want to do more but, until I get medical bills paid off. Until our patreon gets going. We are stuck being basic. We have grown to 50 subs lol. I am trying. I am working on a series but, every time I record the next video something happens. So, I am going to restart and try to get going again.
Other then that. It is a few daily blogs. Product talks, orthodontics, being a parent I/C, company promotions. Yes, for things other then myself. You can see my YouTube here and Subscribe 🙂
Then There Is This
So, if you want to help us make the YouTube channel professional there are some amazing ways to help here.
There are so many ways to help and so many things that you can get for your contributions! Including one on one custom made videos. 🙂
There Is Also This
Ok, so I am having issues with medical bills. It is more serious then I realised. Between the on going allergist and shots. Now Aiden has to see yet another specialist with his sleep. I have known that he actually has apena. He snores like a man and does stop breathing. I finally got a referal. Then, I also find out that something is going on with his ears. His ear drums are sealed. But, they do not vibrate like they should. Meaning that it is affecting his hearing. You can help us here. Please feel free to share. I have proof of everything too.
His sister has issues too. But, seems like it is a never ending deal with him. I did not start the orthodonic stuff knowing that we were struggling. Then, adding this bill too. Our insurance actually covers half of the orthodontic stuff. They are allowing me to make payments with absolutely no intrest. Amazing people. I just was not expecting to find all these other issues with him. I will update on his sleep study and ears as we get more info.
Then What I Am Doing For My Health
So, Yes I quit the company I was selling safety and conceal carry for. I just don’t vibe with the owner. I did not like paying almost $10 a month for a website. They could not ever keep ahead of 100 people. I just one did not want to invest more time and money in a company that had been around as long as they have been and not be able to get and keep more the 100 consultants. Everything was confusing as hell to keep up with and place a simple order. That is like my best specialty and I could not understand half the shit. Then, to up the web fee on new consultants wanting them to pay yearly and charging more to pay by the month. So, I found a GREAT chance. I jumped!
So, back story. My father has had health issues. He has bulbus emphasima and copd. He has had a partial lung removal not quiet a year ago. He has been on so many heavy pain meds since I was 16……I am 36! Yes legally. He was on the highest type of pain meds that is avaible by prescription. Well, he is off of all that. He did it himself. Even with lungs and heart issues. He did it cold turkey and using Hemp CBD Oil. Yes with no THC. Now I know some are gonna screetch….hemp has Hemp has 3%< THC. While that is true. Where this company gets the hemp from is from clean soil. The exraction method is unlike anyother. It is outside lab tested 3 times. It is proven to have no THC. It is legal in all 50 states. There is a long process I can share with you. I will if someone asks. The comapanies are all merging. So, while I have a referal link to buy at the moment we do not have all of our full products yet. Which I have gotten to try and LOVE IT. I have been using the NANO drops for a month now. Which is a Hemp CBD Oil drink enhancer with NO taste! you can use it under your tounge….that way it does have a sour citrus flavor. Let me say I can not make any medical claims but, just the drops I have to YET have a I/C flair. I have energy. No more naps. I feel better. I feel more energized. I mean my father used the tenicure we have to get off of very high pain meds. He has used it to stay off of the stuff. AMAZING! There is everything from coffee yes with Hemp CBD. Hemp protien. Hemp CBD Oil infused water. Tenicures. Skin care. This is what we have to come! check it out.
That salve or balm is amazing. 10 squirts under the tounge or you can just spray it in your mouth. These will be out soon! So, I will give you 2 links. Here is where you can buy now!

I Am Doing This For A Reason
I know that it seems I am involved in a lot betten the hemp, posh, acti. Well, when Phuse Beauty had free signups I jumped because I use there products. Yes even their quiet blow dryer. I love it. I love all the other products including the shampoo and conditioner. So, I see a chance for a discount. I also see if anyone is interested in hair products including combs and brushes that are going to make your hair look better alone come here and check it out. Ask questions.

This company has made my life easier as far as keeping the kids from looking like a wildabeast LOL. Katie has crazy hair. She has my hair. Aiden’s is beautiful. If he combs it LOL. He is a mess. I think he has longer hair then anyone else in the house. If you have any questions ask away!

I am still with Acti-labs too and OMG they have some AMAZING new products. Some new formulas. Some new packaging. Click here to check out all the new products and reformulated ones. Plus all the original products.
I hope you are all doing well!
So, I have been missing for a bit. Things have been hectic. Aiden has had yet another episode of strep this was the WORST I have ever seen him sick. I am talking 105 fever. Yes talk about scary. THEN…..Katie started vomiting. I don’t mean just a little. I mean BAD. I assumed that it was a stomach bug. Since she missed school I figured make a doctor’s appt and get a note. The next day when I woke up to call I noticed that her lips had been bleeding. Yes she was that dehydrated. So, now….I am afraid they are gonna send up to the ER for hydration. I did not realise that she had a low grade fever at that point. Which I should have known since she could NOT stay awake. I noticed on the way that she had goose bumps. I feel her I notice she is on FIRE! I have not had her sick with a fever in some time. As SOON as the nurse gets her vitals and weight and in a room she kicks her shoes off lays down and she is out. She said..I am gonna swab her which I figured they would. She gets it done. Katie goes right back out. Well, the doc did half the exam with her asleep. We like to have NEVER gotten her awake. She was spacy I mean like scary. She may only be 14 but, she is bigger then I am even with the 5lbs she lost in 3 days. So, if she passed out on me then what would I do. It happened once when she was younger. Anyway, it was the flu. Yup, one of the 2 things that we DON’T need in the house. We had in the house. I tried to keep them away from each other. She is 100% now and Aiden seems to have been lukcy here.
On top of all this they have both started in orthodontic treatment. She is in full braces. He is in a pallet exander for now. In June they are putting partial braces on Aiden for intervention treatment. Trying to fix his bite. I am documenting all of that and it is on YouTube.
Here Is Why I Am Documenting It
I was looking on YouTube when we had the first vist to figure out what they would be doing to Aiden. She got started the first visit. I wanted to try and see if doing interviention would be worth it. They told me up front it would cost more and we could wait and do it all at once. Well, I found a lot of either adults in braces. Or kids in braces and/or expanders. Nothing much of parents talking about what it is like with younger ones in treatment. It is not like he can take care of it all himself. So, when me and Tim decided to go forward to avoid the CHANCE of surgery I decided to follow them. Post it on YouTube along with me talking about it. So far, I have had a great reaction. I have had a channel for awhile. I have never really posted on it regularly. I have been now. I have became a YouTube partner. So, when I may get a check in years to come (you have to have a $100 to withdrawl and I do not have that many followers). I can put it on our doctor bills.
I am actually about to upload the latest update. I have a lot of catching up to do here as well. I have a ton of new things going on. I want to document them here that was the entire reason I started this to begin with. Some stuff I am going to edit. Some delete.
I guess I just wanted to update here. I have some new exciting things coming including some stuff I found that is great for my health!
So, my kids both have or are getting a mouth full of metal. I am looking at water piks wow I had no idea how many there are. What is your favorite? I am looking at the Jetpik JP2000 elite. If you work for a company that sells water piks and you need some reviews get in touch with me. They will be used daily with an appropritate review. A written vlog and a video. I am serious I want the best of the best for my kids!
Now, I am not trying to say that the conversation or actions of suicide is gone ignored. But, I know that some freak out over things that is nothing and ignore the things that are there. Before I graduated yes I lost a child friend to suicide one we were never told if it was suicide or an accident. It was a boy playing with certain things that could be explosives trying to build a small bomb and he blew himself up.
I have had suicidal thoughts. I have attempted when I was a teen. Something adults tend to forget is how cruel teens can be. They tell kids suicide is not the answer grow up and deal with it. It is not that easy when you have no one at school. Maybe someone started a horrible rumor about you that spread thru the school. I think social media has made it worse. I was watching something that they brought in a professional and a younger girl that works at a place like the suicide hotline that is ran by teens. I mean the phones. Come on we were all teens some maybe teens reading this. We know when we hit a certain age some of us do not think that anyone understands us that is older then 17. It was kind of the point of the teen suicide hotline (I think that is the name).
I think some look at suicide is a joke or the pussy way. But, not to like make it seem like the right answer or to prove a point. To carry it thru takes balls. I could not tell you the many times that I have set and cried and had the same thought running thru my head. I am sure I have told others I trust when I have felt that way. I have really blocked that out that as an answer. I do realize as being someone left behind how much that answer is not really an answer as much as it is just avoiding your problems but, for life. You never get the chance to say I am sorry. To show others that they can be strong and face life because look at you and what you have came thru. You can actually help others if you chose to stay here with those that love you then if you throw the towel in a give up and really let’s be honest that is what happens when you commit suicide. I am not going to talk down about anyone that has committed suicide. It is sad. Like I said I have been touch by it at a young age. Then again at an older age.
We see it in Hollywood a lot either suicide or suicide by accidental. It is everywhere. Now I know that this is NOT a new thing. It has been around forever. The truth is though that it is happening at a younger age. Truth…most kids are not comfortable talking to most adult in their life. They would rather talk to some that they feel can relate to them, understand them, and that they trust. Kids trust there parents to a point. It really depends on how you as a parent have handled things in the past on if they are comfortable to talk to you or not. Let me tell you this, freaking out, calling mobile crisis is not gonna win their trust. Also, not believing them and tell them that they are over dramatic is not gonna win their trust. There is a medium ground. I am not saying you aknowledge that this is a real threat but, you do nothing. You start a plan that you go thru with them I would involve the school if that is an option. Look at options to get help that does not make them feel bad but, let them agree on help with you. Always give them the chance to have a say. If you have an emergency situation you will not have time for all this. At that point you do what you got to. Get them numbers they need to call and speak to someone when they feel the need. I think a lot of parents are either overly involved like never giving the child a chance to make choices. Or they just do not care or act that way.
I was a self harmer at an early age. Seriously and it went on for YEARS. Now, that was not being in a suicidal state of mind. Here is the thing that I found speaking to others like me. We start the self harming as an outlet because we can not deal nor handle the emotional pain. Turn it into a physical pain it makes it so much easier to deal with. So, please do not assume that someone that say cuts themself is suicidal.
Remember you are never responsible for someone else taking there own life. I will say that telling someone to go kill themselfs if they do you are responsible and if I am not mistaken You can be brought up on charges which is sad that we have to live in a world like that period. I have a teenage daughter I see first hand how nasty kids her age can be to each other. It is so crazy! the number one cause of death in ages like 14-18 was suicide on year. I do not know if that is still the current number.
Never take someone saying they are gonna kill themsleves as a ploy for attention. They need help! If you love that person you will help them. But, truth is a lot that do commit suicide don’t ever say anything. But, will discuss their final wishes and so fourth.
In closing do not ignore anyone that may need help sometimes a hug and a listening ear can be the thing that changes their mind. There is so much info out there on suicide find it. Read it. Put it to use!
If you ever need a listening ear let me know! I have been there and I am so happy I was kept here and I hope that i can return the favor and help someone else. I am gonna leave you with a song that always helps me when I get depressed over somethings.
Well, I have been quiet busy. More so then I realised. This is me though trying to do to much at once. I am trying to get my personal protection and preparedness buisness up and going check that out here. I hope to get on the gun show circuit by next month at latest. I’m trying to figure out what I should buy to have on hand for any stock. You are welcome to make any type of recommendation! I need to get my buisness cards designed. I need to get them and some flyers made and passed out and hung up. Thing is I SUCK at graphics lol. So, I am waiting to set down with my husband and design something. He is good he just prefers to have my input when he is designing them. follow my Ready and Armed buisness here. Also, text protectme to 95577 I promise I will never blow your phone up. I only send very few if any texts out a month. I just update it for specials or sales. The free shipping with Ready and Armed has changed. Now, you HAVE to register as a customer for free shipping. It is free to do plus, you’ll get 10% off future purchases that are full priced. Our prices are already competitive. Oh, we have a incentive trip we can earn too. If you want to try for it you can. All you have to do is join. Then, hit the next level and your qualified. Of course you have to do the things that are required to level up which include taking at least 2 national certification classes. That means taking classes offered by the NRA that get you certified to TEACH a class. Which I think is the smart thing to do anyway. I love the company. We only have 102 ACTIVE reps. I guess that means that has paid their website fees and made a sale? Or maybe it means they paid their web fees. I could be wrong. Either way we are not flooding the market. We are not selling Chinese ripoff items. Only high quality items that are sold with a warranty. We do not take items and brand them with our company. We drop ship too. What that means is when you order from me that order gets sent to the supplier and they ship it for us. That means no overhead costs for storing products. Does our low prices make sense now? They should now click here make your customer account and pick out what you need. Then, head over here to facebook like and FOLLOW my page to be able to reach pretty much any time for questions.
Remember I said that I have taken on to much I have lol. I’m trying to fill my weekends that are not soccer or gunshows with vending events for Acti-labs! Wait I want you to see this beautiful look I created thanks to that company and their products!
Ok so, then I get questioned when people see the prices of is this a quality product for such low prices. Well, yea it is actually worth more then we sell it for. The biggest secret? We own the manufacturing on the products. We package them correctly. There are so much in this. This photo explains it.
We have some new products too! Including meal replacement shakes. Some are also dairy free. Guess what, they are made to EU standards for meal replacement. That means that they are higher quality then what is normally made and sold in the US for meal replacement. You will not find a cheaper meal replacement shake on the internet. You won’t find a meal replacement shake that is as good and HEALTHY as ours! All the ingredients and information are on the site. Our diet products are about nutrition. Not just killing your appiete so you don’t want to eat without any calories your body will hit starvation mode eventually and that not eating will backfire because you’ll start hoarding calories and fat in your body until you are eating properly again. So even if you use one of our diet products and it curbs your appetite you’ll still have nutrition and calories. So, no starvation mode. It’s all about health and nutrition. Click here to go to my website and take a peek. We are all over EU, US, and now CANADA! Any of you can order from my site you DO NOT have to use a local rep. I have customers in Ireland and I have a great relationship with them. I like making new friends. It is not all about the sales to me. Find me here on Facebook to talk about all things Acti! So, I am trying to get that going well for me so I don’t have to keep working so HARD to build my customer base and I can enjoy just TALKING to you all. I much more prefer that!
BeforeI forget Posh night is coming! But look at this special that you should jump on. All my favorite products from the look natural line which is vegan. Plus, a water bottle that youcan use to infuse your water with fresh fruit! We all know water is important to your skin health!
I know that is kinda hard to read. Jump here like and follow me on facebook and I will update it with the items that are going out with the new catalog.
Ok, so like I said I am doing to much. I am writing a book too! Yes! I am over talking about it and I am just doing it! Not to get rich or try by any means. I have some valuable information that I feel would be great to share! As of right now it will be a digital download at first. It is going to be as raw and real as I can make it without being sued lol. So, I will update about the book as I am finishing up. I’ve already restarted it 3 or 4 times. You can like and follow this page on facebook to keep up with the book and my YouTube Channel.
Yes I am working on daily YouTube videos! It will vary on content from day to day. You can find my videos here if I linked it right.
I’m also working on getting bows made and sold. I am adding some custom badge reels too! You can like and follow this page to keep up when I have new stuff made.
I am just trying to stay busy so I can hopefully stay out of the depression as much as possible.
I figure the book will take more time. I’m so thankful for my new laptop so I can use it to write and keep up with my buisnesses.
Hope everyone is doing ok!
Ok so I started a bug out bag blog yesterday and ran out of time to finish it. So, that’s the reason for part 2!

First off when you are looking for these items you want to stay small. Practical. Lightweight. Remember that the idea is this all goes into a bag you can carry.
You can make a shelter with a tarp or use trash bags filled with leaves as a make shift ground pad.
Remember being well rested both mentally and physically is extremely important when things are rough. Here are some ideas followed by a few items you can buy rather then relying on finding things you may not find.

This is gonna vary by area and season. Some places never really get cold. Some stay below freezing half the year. You know your area. This is why there is no 1 bug out bag for everyone! You need to make one for you and your families needs!
Remember no matter what. You are gonna need fire likely! So you want to keep items for fire making no matter what.
Starting a fire is a must when bugging out. I recommend having at least 3 different means of starting a fire on your bug out bag list of items to pack. Remember that the idea is to pack for 3 days.
-ignition source(qty 3)

The implications of forgoing any of these for an extended period of time might lead to bacterial infections and a rapid deteriation in health. When bugging out, you need to be at the top of your game, so be sure to pack these items.
-All Purpose Camp Soap
– Hygien/signal mirror
– Small Pack Towel
– Travel Toilet Paper (qty 2 at least)
– Travel Size Toothbrush and Toothpaste
– Other Personal Hygiene Necessities
This is an area you will really alter for you and your families needs. I’m going to keep reminding you. The idea is to pack for 3 days. So 3 days x the number in your family. Or you can have each person pack their own bags with necessities.
You also want to pull your packs out and check dates on everything every 6 months or so. Make sure it all stays in date. These items are great for backwoods camping as well.
Next to weapons, this is the number 1 category that everyone loves to go crazy over. Determine the must haves and forget the rest. Trying to practice what we preach, I recommend the following 3 tools for your bug out bag.
I’ll try to list some I know where to buy. The Ready and Armed company is a small buisness. I am 1 of 2 reps in my state. These items are well made items. Most are from known and trusted brands. I’ll list some other tools that can be useful if you have the room to carry them. The tools are good for backwoods camping.

Illuminations, like fire source, is something I recommend having multiple intances of as well. If one fails or you lose it somehow, you have another to take it’s place. Each item listed below has multiple uses, but, they all serve the same purpose-helping you see where you’re going. Don’t forget the extra batteries!

This is a controversial topic. Self-defense is something we should all give serious consideration. Bugging out, in it’s severest of circumstances, is a survive or die proposition. Whether you choose handgun, a rifle, both, or just a can of pepper spray, it’s upto you. But, you can be sure in a bug out scenario, we’ll be well equipped to defend ourselves and hunt wild game if needed.
If you do not carry a weapon or your not legally allowed to. I highly recommend some degree of self defense training. Especially if you have a family.

So what is a Bug Out Bag?
Abug out bang is a portable kit the normally contains the items one would require to survive for 72 hours when evacuating from a disaster, however some kits are designed to last longer then just 72 hours.
A bug out bag is not one size fits all A excellent bug out bag starts with a great bug out bag list.
Building a bug out bag does not have to be hard. It actually should be fun and enjoyable. I mean having a solid bug out bag plan, and planning well in advance should help put your mind at ease.

The Filter Pump provides the highest filtering accuracy. It can turn lake, stream, or standing water into safe and clean drinking water. It includes a three step filtration process that is unmatched. First is a pre-filter to remove sand, rust and other large particles. The next step is a carbon fiber filter which eliminates dirt particles, odors and heavy metals. Contrast this to granular Activated Carbon (GAC) used by competitors, which is not nearly as effective and sometimes leaves little carbon balls in the filtered water.
