My 37 year-old, super healthy brother, Tim, had a stroke Tuesday night. He left this earth this morning. My family had such a horrible time with hospital staff and other "family" members and "friends" through the entire experience. 

Do me a favor? Hug a family member. Tell them you love them. Be thankful for the time you have together. Be sure to be kind to them and others around you ALWAYS.

I'm thankful I have the knowledge that families are forever and know I will see him again.

Have you been enjoying #sharkweek as much as we have?!

Wednesday, August 13, 2014


On the news this week was an announcement that West Nile Virus has been found in mosquitoes in my city. Warnings and precautions have been given to stay away from these pests. I don't live too far from the lake so should I be nervous? We normally leave the door to the backyard open during the day when we are home for our dog and cats to be able to go in and out as they please.

I found a quick, simple solution to this problem--a magnetic screen door.
 Assembly/installation is SUPER easy. 
If you are more visual, then they have a YouTube installation video to watch.
It is attached with reinforced velcro along the entire top and sides of the frame so it won't fall down (there are even some nails you can tack in for extra support).
 The screen has the entire 83" height stacked with 26 powerful magnets. There are reinforced adjoining edges, so they'll never break or fall off. If you install it properly, you will have NO GAPS along the entire vertical closure. This means no bugs!
 This is our test run before we officially put it up.
Day-Z figured it out on her first try.
 The magnetic strip down the center allows people and pets to pass through
and then closes back up keeping the pests out. Hooray!
The iGotTech company is so great to stand behind their products 100%. If you think any part of this product is not up to par (and I'm telling you it is), they want to know. If you don't like it, you can return it for a FULL refund. Check this product out -- I promise you'll love it.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Statistics show that the people who have the most birthdays live the longest.
Looks like I am getting smarter with age.
Happy birthday to me. I celebrate the entire month so it isn't too late to send chocolate, flowers, and gifts.*

*I'm kidding, but not really. Not enough people buy me things.

My name is deanna and I am addicted to Alex and Ani bangles.
My wise friend Jessica told me, "It could be worse. You could be addicted to meth."
Thank you, Alex and Ani, for keeping me away from meth.
