Mosquitos Attack but Clif Bars Rock!

We have had so much rain over the past 30 days, perfect conditions for mosquitos to breed and hatch.

I've been watching the rain forecast to determine when I would be able to mow. There was a bad thunderstorm earlier this morning, but the weather cleared by afternoon. 

I prepped my yard and mowed my grass while the mosquitos dive bombed my face and arms. I am covered with bites, but witch hazel helps the itching feeling. Mowing is always an adventure!

After I finished mowing I got cleaned up and sat down on my bed. I started to watch tv and immediately felt sick. I've been trying to save money on my medication, so I've only been taking half doses. No bueno. Headache, dizzy, unable to see. I'll be taking all of the correct dosages from now on.

I recently had a bad experience with a box of Clif bars last week. I use them as meal replacement bars. I purchased a box of 12 for a really good price at Target. 

When I got them home and opened one of the bars it was stale. The others were hard as a brick! This has never happened before and I was concerned. I tweeted the company and got a response and a call back the next day. Impressive!

I received a full refund and the company wanted to follow up with me. Clif Bars are delicious and I'm now a customer for life. I highly recommend you give them a try. Por favor check out the Clif Bar website .The Chocolate Chip bars are my absolute favorite. Mmm.

Good News/Bad News

Ah the joys of home ownership...

I have a mold problem in my basement. I'm super allergic to it, so I'm doing everything I can to remove it so I won't end up in the hospital with an asthma attack.

All this started because I haven't been able to turn on the air conditioning unit. Now I have a bad situation brewing. Going to try and take care of this myself. I have gloves, eye protection, and N95 masks.

If I can't get the mold cleaned up properly, this is the end. I can't take any more stress. My shoulders are already loaded up. No más por favor.

Thinking about doing a giveaway for my fabulous readers during the next couple of weeks. It will be wedding related and I'll talk about it more on my Twitter ~ @mlvlatina and my Tumblr ~ Bliss by Monica.

Not Giving Up

"Don't give up. Great things take time." I read this randomly on Pinterest this morning. I'm taking this as a sign that everything is going to be alright.

I'm still job hunting. It's tough because no one wants to hire someone just for the summer, especially since I'm not a teenager lol. I refuse to give up. I think I have an application on file almost every where in my area.

Due to financial issues I have lost almost 70 pounds. This is good and bad. Being hungry all the time is a challenge, but when I go back to school in August I'll be able to go to the grocery store regularly. I am literally counting the days.

If I can make it through the next 3 months I'll be okay. I still post on social media. I still read posts and I'm grateful for all of you. Thank you for not giving up on me.
