Gas Deals in Texas

IF you live in Texas you probably know about H.E.B grocery. Im not sure how many people are aware of the great gas deal they have going on right now. If you purchase a gift card and use it to pay for your gas you get 12 cents off per gallon. Today I went to H.E.B and the gas was $3.28 so with the 12 cents off i got my gas for $3.16. wal mart has its own deal but they only take off 10 cents off per gallon if you use a gift card.

Granola from Enjoy Life Foods - gluten free, soy free, dairy free, nut free, casein free

Granola from Enjoy Life Foods - gluten free, soy free, dairy free, nut free, casein free

Yummy Yummy Yummy, My very favorite company EnjoyLife foods sent me a bag of their awesome double chocolate crunch granola. The double chocolate crunch granola is so good, it can be eaten by itself. You can also eat it the way I liked it which is as a cereal.

I really love to eat granola cereal and of course I love chocolate so this granola was perfect for me. Like all of EnjoyLife foods other products their granola is free of gluten, wheat, dairy, peanut, tree nut, egg, soy, fish, and shell fish. The products from EnjoyLife Foods are really great products for people who have food allergies but still want to enjoy their favorite foods.

I was also sent a bag of their semi-sweet chocolate mega chunks for baking. The mega chunk are dairy, soy, and gluten free. I found a gluten free recipe on Foodnetwork.com for chewy gluten free chocolate chip cookies. I just replaced the regular semi-sweet chocolate chips with the mega chunks. I did cut the chunks down to a size that would not be too big for the cookies. My whole family loved them so much and didn’t even know they were gluten free.
You can read my review of other EnjoyLife Foods to see what other products they have to offer.
You can also find the recipe I found on for the gluten free cookies Here.

My awesome friends at EnjoyLife Foods wants to give one very lucky reader the chance to try out the granola and mega chunks.  Just follow the steps on rafflecopter.

Has Your Child been Bullied?

I know I usually just write about coupons and getting great deals, But today I want to write about something that is really important to me. Bullying is something that gets me all worked up and when the school does not do anything to help it makes me even madder.
I have a daughter who is 11 and now in 6th grade. Since last year when she started 5th grade a group of girls have been bullying her to the point that she made her depressed, at which point I started taking her to therapy. I went to the school and got no help at all I even went to administrative offices for help. All year I got no help at all, the principal even tried to turn it around and blame it on my daughter. I have to mention that my daughter is not like most kids her age she has ADHD and suffers from emotional problems, she is a great kid and pretty much controls herself the best she can. These kids do not understand how why she is different or how to deal with a person with a disability. They used her differences to make her feel so bad about herself. I even went to the principal and explained to him that there are too many kids committing suicide because of bullying for him to just ignore the situation. I let him know that I am a parent that will fight as long as I have to for my children. I fought all school year but got no help, once the school year was over I was happy that she would be going on to middle school and I hoped that these girls would back off. As soon as the new school year started the bullying started up again as well. Part of me thought it was because they were jealous because I always make sure that my kids have nice clothes and with the way I save money and know how to shop on a small budget I always get them nice clothes. Once the bullying started again I went straight to the principal at this school and again now help.
I know that almost every school has a so-called zero tolerance when it comes to bullying, but I feel a lot of the principals are not holding up to stopping the bullying. I know that I am not the only parent right now dealing with this and I wanted to share my story so that I can give you parents the courage to fight for your kids. I went to the school board and the superintendent and called every day and fought every day. Today I finally got a meeting with the superintendent and told her everything that my kids had been through. One other thing that bothered me was that our school was the lowest scoring school in the district. I didn’t want my kids to deal with not only bullying but also not getting the best education. At the end of my meeting the superintendent let me transfer my children to the highest scoring school in the district and the school that really deals with bullying.
If you are a parent dealing with this and can’t afford to just up and move or to put your kids in private schools like me then I want you to fight and fight as hard as you can. Go to the school board meetings, call the school superintendent every day if you have to but get the help that your kids need. If you are a parent of a kid that does not get bullied please take the time and teach your children that not all the kids are the same and some of them have serious issues.  Our children need to learn how to deal and accept children with special needs.
Thank you for reading my story and if you need any help or information please feel free to contact me.
