Hey Everyone! I know it’s been awhile since I posted. I recently started classes for graphic design. I already have a degree in medical office technology and I tried for a couple of years to get a job in that field, but didn’t have any success with that. Then I was a childcare provider for awhile. I got tired of the long hours and low pay. The kids weren’t usually the problem. It was the parents who didn’t want to pay on time or they would want to dock my pay if they didn’t bring the kids (or if I was sick). All I can tell someone who is thinking about being an inhome childcare provider is make sure you get contracts. I don’t care if the person is your family or friend. I tried to take the nice route instead of the professional route and I ended up overworked and underpaid. That was my main motivation for going back to school.
Graphic design is something I’ve been wanting to learn for awhile and I’ve done a little bit. But I want to learn the advertising aspects and even learn how to make better graphics. I would love to work for myself as I don’t think I do well in an actual office setting. I am more comfortable in a home office. I’ve still got at least another year of classes so I guess I will just have to see what is out there once I graduate.
I am still homeschooling my younger two. Rhiannon is 16 now and Trey is 11. Rhiannon did think about going back to public school but decided against it. She prefers to be able to do her school work on her on time and I understand that. Trey just would not do well in a public school. He’s so used to being homeschooled and he prefers being here. My oldest is working full time and for awhile his job had him away from home. But now he’s been home for the past few months and he’s working locally. I love him but I wish he’d help out around the house. He’s 19 and makes decent money,but yet he gets mad if we ask him to pay a bill or two(like the internet or water bill, things he uses). I don’t charge him rent so it’s the least he could do.
Also, my 19 year old pregnant stepdaughter is moving back in with her daughter after not speaking to us for 5 months. I wasn’t excited about letting her come back and stay, but it was either she stay here or live on the streets. And I can’t let my grandchildren be homeless. Of course, I’ve caught attitude from some people, which is to be expected because they know how she has treated us in the past. But it’s just not in me to be a hateful person. My stepdaughter is supposed to be waiting for an apartment to become available so I am praying that happens soon.
I think that just about catches y’all up on everything. I am hoping to post more giveaways soon, so look for those!

I figured since Christmas is right around the corner, it would be the perfect time to share the ways I make extra money. These are places that I’ve actually received a payout from.
Qmee: To earn money with this program, all you have to is install an extension on your browser. Basically you get paid for searches for certain products. It’s not a lot of money, but it does add up. You can also cash out at any time.
Opinion Outpost: I’ve been doing surveys for them for awhile now and cashed out several times. You have to accumulate 100 points to cash out via paypal. They also have amazon and itunes giftcard options.
Instagc: With this site, you complete offers and surveys for points. You then can exchange those points for Amazon giftcards. I have earned several giftcards with this site. Every 100 points = $1. It doesn’t take me long to rack up points for a $5 giftcard.
OneOpinion: This is a survey site I just signed up for a couple of weeks ago. I have already cashed out $25 (the minimum). You have to reach 25000 points for the minimum cashout but each survey is anywhere from 1000-3000 points so it doesn’t take that long to reach it.
Mint Vine: Minimum cashout is 1000 points ($10). I’ve cashed out from this site also.
And this last site is not a survey site, but I’ve made some money off of it as well.
Textbroker is a site where you write short articles. You have to write an article for textbroker and from that they decide what level you receive. The higher the level, the more you make. So if you are a decent writer, you can make some extra money there.
That’s all the sites I have for now. If you have any other sites, please feel free to share them in the comments!
