QuickClot (Stops Bleeding Fast) ~ This Could Be My Answer!

I think with this, I am home free to do some weed eating in my yard again!!

You know I never thought much about this until last October when my dad was put on Coumadin and when he went out to feed his hunting dogs and he was wearing flip flops and the dog got his chain caught on my dad's big toe and cut it just at the top of his toe nail and he was bleeding some terrible. Most of the family was out of town on a "sister trip" and my husband was out of town also and my daughter was at work. He could not get the bleeding to stop and every time he put his foot down it got tremendously worse. Finally we got a hold of my daughter's boyfriend who took in to the emergency room where they finally got the bleeding to stop. Luckily my daughter's boyfriend could go down to his house a couple times a day and take care of him because every time he would stand up for a week or so, it would start bleeding and he had animals that needed tended to and he needed someone to fix him something to eat and such.

Then in March of this year I was put on Coumadin (blood thinners) for blood clots in my lungs and I am such a klutz that we were all really worried about me getting hurt and bleeding to death. I have not been able to do some of the things I normally do like keeping the yard tended to. That has always been my thing. I do the weed eating and mowing. That is like my sanity since I do daycare and I am stuck in the house all the time. Since the Coumadin I have not been able to do that. I am going to get some of this and then I think I will be home free. With this, no one will be able to yell at me and say "Now, you know if something comes back off that weed-eater and hits you, you could bleed to death!" I am liking this!!

I just popped over and got my FREE Suncare Kit and while I was there I checked out the UV Index for my area, and this is what it said:
The UV Index in xxxxxxxxxxx, OH is 8.
Protection against sun damage is needed. If you need to be outside during midday hours between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM, take steps to reduce sun exposure. A shirt, hat, and sunscreen are a must, and be sure to seek shade. Beachgoers should know that white sand and other bright surfaces reflect UV and can double UV exposure.

Hop on over to Listen To Your Skin and get yourself a Free Suncare Kit also.

**I did find that when I was filling out the form that it would not work for me when putting the state in using capitol letters, so I had to use lowercase letters. I called the company and they were getting someone to work on it.

Zestra has been used by millions of women. It is recommended by health care professionals, and clinically-proven. Zestra is safe, natural, hormone-free and effective for women of all ages and lifestages. Despite the great results and huge need for women (and their partners), Zestra has reached tremendous resistance in getting its ads aired on a huge range of stations. It seems the old double standard is at work again because those same mainstream media outlets show Cialis, Viagra and Levitra ads with reckless abandon. Women should have the same opportunity as men to learn about and talk about solutions for a better sex life.

Zestra's goal is to help women achieve better sex effortlessly and Zestra is providing special offers to bloggers and to your readers to help get the word out. Please feel free to share this URL or the coupons as you wish. Zestra believes that all women deserve sexual satisfaction wants to help bring the fireworks back to your bedroom.

Zestra Featured in Shape Magazine
Zestra has been recommended by millions of women, clinically proven, and physician approved. Despite all this, Zestra has had a difficult time getting its ads approved in any sort of mainstream media. Their ads have been refused by most TV networks, cable stations, radio stations, and websites such as Facebook and WebMD. 

In a world where Viagra and Cialis can run advertisements during the Super Bowl including lines like, "An erection lasting more than four hours" why isn't it okay for women to talk about solutions for a better sex life?

Check out this article published in the San Francisco Chronicle and Huffington Post about the double standard in advertising that Zestra is constantly battling:

The Struggle by Wanda Brunstetter ~ Book Review


Title:  The Struggle (Kentucky Brothers Book 2)
Publisher:   Barbour Publishing, Inc.
Publish Date:  July 1, 2012


Timothy Fisher’s decision to move his family from their home in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, isn’t a happy one for his wife, Hannah. Everything she knows is in Lancaster County—her mother—her home—her friends. But what choice does Hannah have? Realizing that her place is with her husband and young daughter, she reluctantly goes but finds her new life a hard adjustment.

Nothing Timothy does pleases Hannah, and his best-laid plans are beginning to crumble before him. Then a tragic accident occurs, further driving a rift in their strained relationship. Hannah is inconsolable and blames Timothy. Between the stress of his job, dealing with his wife’s hostility, and feeling the burden of guilt, Timothy can barely cope.

Hannah’s resentment drives her back to Pennsylvania, where she hopes to find peace and healing for her troubled soul. Timothy turns to his pillar of strength and pleads with God to restore his marriage. Amid the ashes of grief and struggle, will renewed love, faith, and hope emerge?

My Thoughts:

First and foremost I have loved each and every book that Brunstetter has written and this book is just another one that I can add to the list of most loved books.

I have never had to move away from my family and I can not imagine what Hannah is having to go through moving away from her family like that, only having her husband with her. I know that there are other members of Timothy's family there but it is not like having her family there.

She struggles something terrible with everything, having to share a home until they can get a place of their own, being away from her mother that she it extremely attached to and then when tragedy strikes she is such a mess, as I would be. Instead of turning to her husband, she turns away from him and that leads them nowhere. 

Needless to say, my heart ached for the both of them. If you have never read a book by Wanda Brunstetter, you are missing so much. Each and everyone of her books is so touching. At first I refrained from reading them because they were Christian Fiction and I did not want to read what I considered a "bible thumping" genre but once I picked up one, it lead to another and another and I think now, I have read everyone of her books and I have learned that Christian Fiction is definitely not what I thought is was.

I was not paid for this review, I did however receive a copy of the book for my Kindle from NetGalley. The opinions of this book are mine and mine alone.

My Favorite PetShop Product Review and $50 #Giveaway


Have you ever visited My Favorite PetShop? It is filled with tons of pet supplies for your dogs and cats. I found some really awesome things that I wanted to get for my house full of four legged furr babies. Here are some of the things that I chose to get:

Kyjen Junior/Regular Bungee Weiner Dog | PET0315140

  Kyjen Junior/Regular Bungee Weiner Dog

Now for this Bungee Weiner dog this is great to play tug-of-war with our big ole Shadow boy. When he is having a "good" day, he loves to play this and with this bungee dog, it gives him a little extra room for some extra fun without trying to pull us all over. One head of this little guy squeaks and the rear end rattles. My dogs love the toys that squeak and are not sure what to think of the end that rattles, that is a new one for them.
Kyjen Hide-a-Bee | PET0315026

Kyjen Hide-a-Bee


My Princess Sophie, love this Hide-A-Bee! She is such a treat scarf that we make her work for them so we put them in the hive and replace the bees and she loves to pull all the bees out looking for the treat. The three bees also squeak so that is an added feature for the dogs to sit and chew and make noise with.

 Ailuo 3-Tier Sisal Cat Tree | PET023900701

Ailuo 3-Tier Sisal Cat Tree

My big ole 16+ pound cat Milo loves to perch his big ole body up on the top level of this Cat Tree so that he can swat at who ever is walking by, he is a bit mean like that. He also lays and swats at the pink ball that hangs from the top, I am sure that sooner or later he will be chasing it around the house if he has it his way. I put treats for him in the tube on the bottom because he is just too big to get inside it but this would be awesome for a normal size cat.

Pioneer Pet Plastic Raindrop Fountain | PET0902029

Pioneer Pet Plastic Raindrop Fountain

I have mixed feelings about this, only because I have crazy animals. Our Shadow (Newfoundland/Lab mix) is too big of a dog to use this fountain, Sophie (Cocker Spaniel) is afraid of it but Milo our cat loves it. Every time I see him drinking out of it and I go to get the camera he is finished by the time I get it. I do like that you can set the amount of water that comes out of the actual fountain and it does actually hold a large amount of water.
Armarkat House-shaped 18x14-inch Cat Bed Brown | PET0901009

Armarkat House-shaped 18x14-inch Cat Bed Brown

This Cat bed, I actually love because now Milo no longer sleeps under the covers on my side of the bed!! He literally just fits in this house but I guess when your cat is as big as a dog that will happen. It is a nice looking house and it is very soft on the inside and out.

Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury ~ Book Review

 Waiting for Morning by Karen Kingsbury


 As Hannah Ryan waits for her family to return home from a camping trip, she realizes she has everything going for her—a husband other women admire, two charming teenage daughters, and a loving Christian home. As the sunny afternoon turns into twilight, her uneasiness grows along with the shadows. Then a car pulls into Hannah’s driveway, bringing two police officers...and devastating news that shatters her life forever.
In the days that follow, Hannah struggles with unspeakable feelings of sorrow and rage—feelings that fuse into one chilling purpose for living: revenge against Brian Wesley, the drunk driver who has caused all her pain.
In her fury, Hannah shuts the Lord out of her life. She’s determined not to forgive Wesley or the God who allowed this tragedy to happen. Can two caring people help Hannah rediscover her faith...before bitterness destroys her?

My thoughts:

Karen Kingsbury has delivered yet another wonderfully well written story of tragedy, heartache and shattered dreams. I have yet to be disappointed by the work of Kingsbury. In this story Hannah Ryan has lost so much of her life at the hands of Brian Wesley, a drunk driver. She struggles with anger and hate and loses her strong faith with God feeling that he has let this happen to her because he no longer loves her. Because of Brian Wesley being a drunk driver she becomes an advocate of MADD and shares her story with the community thinking that fighting to get him behind bars is exactly what she needs to close this door and help her to start healing, unbeknownst to her that this is not what she needed.

Waiting for Morning is definitely a book about keeping your faith during times of great loss and times of tragedy. Hannah and her daughter Jenny learned this the hard way and thank goodness that faith is what brought them back together. I recommend this book to everyone and definitely give it 5 stars.

While you are here, will you rate my review?
