Sounds like everyone is doing fairly well...with or without goals...most everyone seems confident they will make the 30 posts this month!! So YAY!!! :thumbsup:

That is very exciting....why don't we help each other remember to post in the thread here after we have hit the 30 mark!!

So it's been awhile since I've asked how many do you have now?

I'm at 18.....19 if I count this post!!

Getting Close!!!

I'm surprised and thankful FC only asks for 30!! Surprised because it's not too great a number it can't be done...and thankful because my time is limited!! lol

Hi Scott!!

Are you talking about the 30 posts a month offer? If so you have to post in the promo you have posted 30 posts that actually contribute to the forum...

I hope I was able to help!

Also welcome to the forum!! It's a great place to be, and it's always nice to have more friends!!

Just wondering what goal you have for yourself? How many posts do you make a day?

Right now I have 16....well this will make 17....I think I will make the 30 a month goal this month...

What about you?

This forum is slower than molasses in the winter time! lol....

Since you are the motivator, start the electrifying conversation.  We are ready. :wave:
I have been trying to post other things to talk is the motivation thread...I started a "Let's have a discussion thread" and I've also started other threads about topics that can be commented about...but I can't do it alone!! I'm counting on my fellow FC members!!!

I have the same problem...we have caller ID so usually we don't answer...but they leave messages...which is annoying!! Sometimes I unplug the phone and just use my cell...It's so annoying because half the people that call must have gotten my number from somewhere else because it's not anything I signed up for....You could get a second line and use that for your personal line...dont give out that number...and unplug the phone number you use for the offers...unless they require a phone call or something...

A good friend site is Gather....I love it!! If you are looking to interact with people in person than you should try your local mall, dance club, bar [[if your old enough]], coffee shop, or just go on a walk or to the park....if you see someone strike up a a stay at home mom I've found being shameless and very un shy is the only way to meet people nowadays... I've made lots of friends playing at the park with my children!!

Because no one knows it's a scam until someone gets scammed...and not a whole lot of people take the time to check it out...not to mention the people that don't take to time to report the scams...they just write it off that they have been scammed...

Why? Where did you get scammed??

I would say that Target is better because they give back like 5% to the community...however since the closest Target around me is like 45 minutes away I'm not able to go there often so we mostly go to walmart...

I am not a big walmart fan though because of what they do to the smaller least target is trying to give back!

I would say either...It depends on the mood I suppose and what I want to do...If I want to sit down and watch t.v. I'd rather use a laptop...but most of the time I use a desktop...hope that helps...what are you having this poll for?
Are you trying to decide which to buy? or what is preferable?

It probably wouldn't even take an hour to spend $1,000 I owe more than that in bills in a month...I would probably put half of it towards bills and the other half towards clothes and food...I could get that much shopping done in an hour...I'm quick!!

Off-Topic / Re: Messy Children

i have 2 (2 & 4) one morning I noticed that they were mighty quiet in their room so I went in to find that they had took the ketchup, mustard and flour out the fridge and it was now all over their wall and floor.  I was mad, but at the time it was kind of funny cause when I walked in my 4 year old looked around like he just walked in on it too, and said, "what's goin on here?" I fell over laughing.
That is too funny!! I would have been laughing too!! Kids are too cute, even when they are being messy!!

My five year old pulls the "innocent" thing a lot...when I know she actually helped her brother get into whatever it is that he got into...she pulls the helpless card....

I have a hard time not laughing at my kids...I don't want to because I want them to know that what they did was wrong, but then again in the scheme of things a little mess now won't hurt everything....and they should know to have fun in life as well...

That's a hard call...

i don't have children of my own.. but i DO have a 6 year old niece ;p
a few days ago she went to school.. and cut her hair with safety scissors! she told her teacher that she did it because "her hair had static in it and wouldn't get out of her face.." needless to say we were all shocked.. i mean, that's something kids do.. but we never thought SHE would! and to top it off she'd never had a haircut (except going to get her bangs trimmed) so it was her baby hair she chopped off, sheesh.

Oh my goodness!! That is funny!! I bet her mother was angry with the teacher...I mean who left her alone long enough for her to cut the "static" out of her hair!! lol

I know what you mean!  I have three little ones...5,3, and 9 mos. seems like they can even make a mess in their sleep!
Most definitely!! I know exactly what you mean...

Off-Topic / The Vaseline Bandit...pic included
« on: March 03, 2009, 07:28:05 pm »Message ID: 41278
While cleaning the house today I sat a jar of vaseline down on the window sill with plans to come back and get it...I have two children, a one year old and a five year old...

I did not know that my one year old was tall enough to reach his very high up window sill and thought the vaseline would be safe for a few minutes...

I went to finish the dishes and my one year old comes out.... show me he found a new use for vaseline...

This is what he calls making himself pretty...this is the second time he's done something like'd think I'd learn!!

Off-Topic / Re: New Topic........Who needs a Starbucks right now? What sounds good everyone?

OOOOHHhh!! That sounds yummy!! Sadly I do not live near a Starbucks...but the local coffee shop makes a mean regualr Mocha with whip cream...that's my absolute favorite, although it may be a little fattening....I also like chai tea as well....

Great question by the way...but it's making me thirsty...I may have to go make my own mocha!! I have a coffee/cappucino machine!! YAY!!! Does anyone else have one? Does anyone have any great coffee recipes?
