Game Review for Gnomes Garden

Gnomes GardenThe last few days I’ve been playing Gnomes Garden on Steam.

Dry summer withered the king’s beloved garden and the surrounding gardens of the kingdom alike. The ruler has fallen ill and the kingdom is in danger. Help the princess save the gardens and make the king better again.

If you like time management games then you might give this one a try. Honestly there isn’t much of a story, your just restoring the king’s garden. The game play is simple, nothing fancy, it’s just remembering which buildings to upgrade and which not and in what order.

I got the game in a bundle so I didn’t pay much for it. I probably would not reset and play all the way through again, at least not anytime soon but overall it was sorta fun. I especially enjoyed the achievements which gave me something to work for. Aim high.. go for three stars before moving on to the next level!

What I liked, it’s fast paced which makes it challenging. This game is definitely a family type game and safe for all ages. Having said that here is what I didn’t like, because it’s fast paced it probably a little too challenging for pre-teens or younger children. My one real complaint would be that I can’t always stop the aggravating little gnomes that come out to bonk my workers. We’re supposed to be able to click on them, well many times it simply doesn’t work. Or if it does they still keep going disrupting my workers.

Whats your favorite Steam games to play?






I Guess I’m Never To Old To Learn Another of Life’s Lessons

love parentsNow if only my grown children would as well  ….

Why would I be paying your bills, because you ASKED me to. YOU agreed if I covered your Netflix you would pay me back NOT pay me what you could.

I asked for $50 a month for this new TV. YOU begged for it so I GAVEIN and let you take it. Then you decided this $50 a month also covered YOUR Netflix which has since gone up to $13 a month. I say NO, you ARGUE, I GAVEIN, again.

Why because you knew I would, if you kept it up. Whose fault is that? YOU for being manipulative and childish or MINE because I’ve always thought I did a good job teaching you to respect me enough to keep your promises OR MINE again for loving you so much I don’t want to argue and thereby allow myself to be manipulated.

I didn’t have to do that, you had 2 sisters who wanted the TV as well and I won’t even go into the fact that letting you take it over there would eventually, possibly, void the 3 year extended warranty we paid extra to have put on it.

I love you, I’ll always love you, but I guess what it comes down to is I let you slide, and slide, and slide which teaches you nothing but that you can keep pushing and get away with it.

I can’t keep doing this, we are at our financial breaking point. We are barely covering our debts now and depending on the month, not. It’s down to this, only having groceries almost solely because of the kindness of others.

I can honestly say I now understand how my own grandparents stood by all these years refusing to help my mom or any of us kids financially even when we needed it in the worst ways. I always hated that about them but now I get it that in their own way they we’re teaching us responsibility with hard love.


So now I have a disgustingly dirty 2 month old Smart TV sitting in it’s box shoved in my doorway and as usual I’m left feeling like I’m the bad guy.

What pushed Meri to seek love elsewhere?

cheaterI saw this question on facebook this morning and thought I would share my thoughts and feelings on the subject.

What pushed Meri to seek love elsewhere?

I’m a supporter of the show, I actually hope it survives the fallout. So don’t get me wrong for what I’m about to say. But it seems to me …

While it may not have always been so, today’s #TheBrownFamily isn’t what I would consider a plural marriage. It’s not one husband and four wives it’s four households sharing one man between them. So maybe you get the man a night or two in what, two weeks time? ANY women in that position is going to feel lonely and depressed at some point. Especially a women whose child has grown and flown the nest which alone can start the spiral down into a depressive state, as I well know.

However in this particular situation, Meri YOUR NOT ALONE, you never we’re.

As a married woman myself I know the hardships well. I should I’ve raised five children in our thirty-something year marriage. However I don’t have the support Meri does. I have one real sister who has never been there for me. I have three real brothers who also have not been there for me. My mother is long gone and my father means well but I never hear from him unless I reach out. I wasn’t blessed with sister wives as you we’re – and yes I think of it as a blessing. BUT I have to think if I had been I would have latched on to them with pride and love in my heart as I would have my own sister given the chance – which we never got.

I feel bad for Meri some what but I don’t feel sorry for her, NOT one bit. Karma is a bitch babe. For someone whose lucky enough to have not just one partner but basically four to let themselves fall into the internet romance trap. Bahhh NO I don’t feel sorry for her, nor for Cody or any of the other wives who ALL put their family in the situation they are in today.

If your not aware of the situation, your going to be seeing a lot of huff this week about Meri being catfished but truthfully it’s all about Meri got caught having an online affair with a man BUT it turned out to be the catfishing bitch, Jackie Overton.

Why is it that all my latest post are about …

The same ol’shit, just another day. I recently saw some comments posted to facebook, by my own kid, Stephanie. It’s not that the comments we’re bad, it’s more that it appeared she was bragging about what in my opinion she aught not to be. So when she comes home I say something to the effect of “a blessing isn’t paying some bill for something you technically already owe”. There’s no argument, no fight, just a stormy big child who doesn’t like what she’s hearing turning tail and storming off. Stomping right off to her daddy who is as usual doing Stephanie’s laundry (only to bitch to me about it later). Still there’s no arguments, no reason to argue it’s not like anything I have to say makes any difference.

Then today Jonni pops up hauling in her dirty laundry as well, well ‘why not’ I mean we do have a washer and dryer and she doesn’t. Even after they just spent twenty-seven thousand dollars in less than three months. I’m not sure how the subject came up but I barely caught some comment to her daddy saying something like my comments we’re uncalled for. So I butt in and ask what she’s talking about, she tells me she doesn’t want to talk about it. A little late now! After some heated discussion she eventually tells me that I should pick and choose when to reply. Now I don’t know about you, but to me that’s as much as telling me to “keep my mouth shut”. But NOT according to her.

I’m all for doing good deeds or “blessings” but I would hope that at some point in eighteen plus years I taught my kids the difference.

Why is it that all my latest post are about ...#1 Going out of your way to do a good deed for someone in need by sharing what you have or can do to help them out is a GREAT thing. You see someone can’t quite pay for their groceries so you gift them a few dollars, yes that is indeed “blessing” someone who needed help.

#2 When you ask to live with others (even your parents) have the decency to be respectable and hold up your end of any bargains. I should not have to remind you that running a house isn’t free. When I only ask you to put $100 into our household monthly you need to understand IM doing YOU a favor not the other way around. Yet you blatantly refuse to hold up your end of the bargain, again. As in initialing promising “it’ll just be for three months” but the reality is that it’s going on eight months now. And here you are bragging on FB how you paid I mean “blessed” mommy/daddy’s by paying their water bill (a whole $20) while that’s a nice thing (and I truly appreciate it) it’s not a “blessing”. IF you truly want to “bless” your parents try helping with things we actually need help with instead of running around bad mouthing us for asking you to pick up a loaf of bread (or washing a dish or anything else) and telling your family/friends we’re a pain in your ass.

You know it’s funny as parents we spend eighteen years raising our children the best we can only to find they haven’t really learned a damn thing or more like they pick and choose what they want to remember in the process. But make one mistake (that your not even really aware of until it’s thrown in your face years later) and watch out because those mistakes are never forgotten or forgiven. Of course that another story for another day, or not.
