Mom with the hand sanitizer bottle.

As a Mom you want to protect your kids from everything, big or small. At this moment I want to protect mine from GERMS!!!! I hate when my kids are sick, I feel so helpless. Helplessness is a shitty feeling when you’re a Mom.
I know it could be worse; they could have a horrible disease or virus. And I’m thankful they don’t! Gabriel had a fever and the stomach flu last Thursday and Friday but today he got sent home early because he had an earache. And Kiarrah has a runny nose and sometimes a sore throat. I find myself touching my ear when I hear him cry about his. It’s like I get these sympathy pains. My ear will actually hurt! And Kiarrah makes my eyes water when she’s blowing her red nose. I’m thankful that my kids are tougher than me. Because Lord knows I’m a HUGE baby when I’m sick.
I’m actually surprised they lasted this long, with school just staring and everything. Germs are the only thing kids don’t mind sharing. I always send them with a small bottle of hand sanitizer in their backpack and encourage them to use it through out the day. They don’t use it though, its still full :/ I wish I could be at school with them so I could remind them to use it and even have the other kids use it. Yeah that’s just what my kid’s want, me following them around with a bottle of hand sanitizer ha-ha.

A few years ago I volunteered in my Daughters class everyday for the whole year and I always had a bottle of it in my purse. They would come in from recess and some of their hands would be BLACK from the monkey bars, or playing with the balls. Ugh it was horrible!! I remember asking the teacher if the playground structures ever got cleaned! There wasn’t always enough time to wash hands so she started bringing baby wipes for them. That didn’t satisfy me so I would have Kiarrah use my hand sanitizer, her friends started asking me for some and eventually the whole class would ask for some too. The kids loved it. It was kind of funny though because she had a foam kind attached to their wall but for some reason mine was better lol. That was fine with us as long as they were using it. She didn’t have a lot of absent students that year compared to past years. Ten points for me! 

I know they’re going to get sick, I can’t stop that but that doesn’t mean that I have to like it right? Right!

Moneys not my friend!!

MONEY!! I feel like it rules people’s lives. I don’t want it to rule mine or my families. There’s always the stress of not having enough money.  Even when there is enough, im worried about the next time when there might not be enough. Money, money and more money!!.

I don’t want to pay for electricity or food but I don’t want to live in the dark or starve lol. What my Honey and I really want is to be off the “grid”. We want solar panels, a windmill, a green house, (we already have the Well). Why not use what God gave us, the sun and wind and the ability to grow something and eat it. Maybe even our own internet that our neighbor’s can also have and for FREE!!

I would’ve LOVED to have been born when money wasn’t so important. When people traded chickens, cows and veggies to get what they need. When, a community was really close. I’m talking Little House on the Prairie days. Make everything had to be made from scratch, my honey would build our house and furniture, I would make all our clothes, and we would get our water from a well house lol. It would be hard work but, so worth it. I don’t get jealous when I see people in huge houses with grass, or nice fancy cars, or women wearing lots of shiny jewelry.  I get jealous when I pass by houses with Solar panels and Windmills, or when I see huge gardens, with everything you could imagine growing in them. It’s“awe I want that!!!” Lol. You know what? I will have all that, I know I will. I just don’t have the patience to wait for it, not that I have a choice. ;)

My dream is to have a huge property (that we own), with an electric fence (so our dogs cant escape lol) 3 houses, our house, a small house for my Dad and one for my Mom. Solar panels on every house and windmills to power our whole property. A huge green house with everything you could think of. Vegetables and fruits, herbs and spices :D And a farm, with lots of animals!! Especially pigs and ducks (because they are my favorite animal), oh and one horse that’s white with brown spots because my daughter is dieing to have one. I want our family and friends to come to us to get their vegetables and fruits. And during Halloween they can all come and pick pumpkins and check out our animals and all for free!

Awe the good life! My Honey and I have talked about all this soooo many times!! We lie in bed and talk for HOURS about our dreams. For now they’re hopes and dreams but one day they will be our reality. :D

Just some 411

I swear I’m going to be a blog writing machine!! Haha.  All I want to do is write.

I thought I would give you guys a little more info about me. My name sounds like a good place to start. J My name is Raeleen C Viera. Up until recently (and thanks to facebook) I thought I was the only Raeleen there is. Apparently there are a bunch of us and a lot are spelled like mine too. I was named after my Daddy, Raymond. I was his third daughter. Poor guy was dieing for a boy to name after him. Sorry Dad...Hehe.

I live in the brown, brown desert in sunny California. I love living out here because it’s so quiet and there’s an enormous amount of privacy. It’s amazing at night because you can see every star in the sky and I LOVE, LOVE stars!! We have 5 acres and it’s perfect for our dogs and our kiddos.  I would like for there to be more GRASS and trees but hey you can’t have it all, right?

I’m happily in love with my Honey, Joel. Every part of me tells me that he was made just for me!! I’ve never been happier and I’m so thankful.  

We share 3 beautiful kids and two fur-kids. I say share because we didn’t make them together, I had Kiarrah and Gabriel from a previous marriage and Joel had Efren from a previous marriage. None of that matters though because they are all loved the same!  Kiarrah is 10, going on 15 lol. Gabriel is 7 and Efren is 6. They are all smart, funny and very well behaved. Our fur-kids are Bishop and Bella. We love them like our kids and we talk to them like our kids.  Yes we are blessed!! :D

Now some facts…..  I love, love music! Especially Oldies, I swear I was born in the wrong time lol ….. Spiders, bugs, snakes and lizards scare me, I’m a HUGE baby if any of those cross my path ….. I hate little pain, probably sounds weird but I do, paper cuts and bumped elbows are the worse …. I love make-up! …. Chuck Taylors are one of my addictions :D …. I have two tattoos; I want at least 5 more. I have stars on my foot, me and my two older sisters have matching ones :D and an African Violet on my back for my Tia who passed away … I have 5 sisters, 1 brother, 5 nieces and 3 nephews …. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, if I could I would be a Vet/photographer/social worker/cosmetologist/OBGYN, do you think they have those, hmm …. I love The Little Mermaid and Peter Pan …. I wish Dr. House was a real person so he could be my doctor lol …. I love to read books, any kind really …. I don’t know how to type so my honey got me a typing program, I’m doing pretty good if I do say so myself :D and I love socks with designs on them!!   Heres a few pics :D

                                  Me and my Love. One of our favorite pictures <3
                                          Kiarrah, i say "smile" and this is what i always get LOL
                                                         Gabriel, hes usually shy for pictures :)
                                                                Efren, he always has a pose :D
                                                           Bella and my big boy Bishop

Welcome to RaeCee :D

I’ve been reading a bunch of different blogs lately and I love it! The first blog I ever read was Miss BreeSharks,  Before reading hers I didn’t even know what a blog was (I know, where have I been right?). Needless to say I was hooked! Hers took me to a few gals that she follows and theirs took me even further. All I could say was “WOW! Looks like fun!” So much fun that I decided to start blogging. I did a lot of research, reading different blogs and trying to figure out what to write about. Most “blog help videos”, say that you should write about one subject. So I did more research and I noticed a lot of the lady bloggers I have read, started off because they were expecting a baby. I’m not expecting any lil ones any time soon (my babies are 10, 7 and 6 lol). I couldn’t think of one subject that I could write about over and over, that would keep a lot of different people interested and wanting to read more. I realized that LIFE is a perfect subject to write about. Everyone can relate to Life and there’s even some who can relate to MY life. So here I am :D YAY!!!!

I hope that you guys enjoy and are entertained with all that I write. I look forward to you following my blogs. Suggestions, questions and comments are greatly welcome. I can’t wait to look back and think, “Awe, my first Blog, how cute and amateur it was.” LOL. So please follow me on my journey and watch me grow into a veteran Blogger. <3 Rae
