2013 went out with a whoosh as it flew past me and my intentions of posting more frequently in the blog. The second half of November and all of December became unbelievably busy and there was simply no free time available for updating, despite the fact I really did intend to many times. So here’s […]

In a repeat of last year when my I am Obamacare image went viral, this month’s recent re-surge in posting and popularity has once again caused my modest blog to go over my monthly bandwidth allotment. Overnight, my blog was shut down due to exceeding it’s limit. Obviously it’s back up for now but this […]

Post Hysterectomy – 2 Years Later

Posted by miss m on Monday, October 7, 2013 @ 3:04pm in Blog, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |
I am Obamacare Miss M. Turner giveneyestosee.com/blog

On October 5, 2011, at age 34, I went in for my Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. It was unbelievably hard. Recovery was painful and slow. But, I was so thankful that I was able to get it in the first place. With a pre-existing condition and no health insurance coverage from my then day-job, no company […]

15% Off Sale at PhoenixFire Designs – One Week Only

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 @ 5:14pm in Blog, Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Love, PhoenixFire Designs |

Love’s car has been on the fritz and about two weeks ago, he “parked” it until we could save up for the repairs. In the meantime he’s been taking my car to work, leaving me stuck the apartment with no way to get out and do anything. It’s driving me crazy. We’re about halfway to […]

Lego With a Side Order of Proselytization

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 @ 2:25pm in Blog, Customer Service, Entertainment, General Blather, Reviews |

Lego has a program called CUUSOO where fans can create and submit Lego build ideas and through a long and lengthy voting and vetting process, some of those fan-inspired creations can become actual Lego sets. Most recently, on August 1st, Lego released their much anticipated Back to the Future Lego DeLorean Time Machine. I am […]

Daily Dose of Cute

Posted by miss m on Friday, June 28, 2013 @ 12:34pm in Blog, General Blather, kitties, Photography and Pics |

No time for a real entry, but I’m bribing you into not being mad with a kitten photo. Because kittens are adorable and I’m totally using Ginger’s cuteness to distract you from the lack of actual updates or content. Everyone with me now…. “aw….” 😉

And So It’s June

Posted by miss m on Sunday, June 9, 2013 @ 12:31pm in Blog, General Blather, kitties, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues, Weather |

Goodness, I’ve been trying to get around to writing an entry for like a week now and it just hasn’t happened! I can’t believe how long it keeps winding up in between entries lately! So please excuse the brain dump of topics this entry will likely cover as a result. Cold So my cold/flu/plague which […]

Why You Can’t Afford To Get Sick Without Healthcare In America

Posted by miss m on Saturday, June 30, 2012 @ 2:24pm in Blog, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Susan Cassidy at Progressive Libertarianism is an idiot. From my feature on CNN, there is this quote from a naysayer on the issue: “Her hand written letter says nothing of her having the freedom to get the service and pay out of pocket, at possibly an outrageous cost, but get the life-saving service none-the-less,” writes […]

I am Obamacare and This Is CNN

Posted by miss m on Thursday, June 28, 2012 @ 4:28pm in Blog, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Holy crap! I’m on CNN!. My story is up. And as of right now, it’s right on the main page too. Holy cow. How surreal is that?? To see yourself on the front page of CNN?? I’m kinda freaking the heck out right now. In a good way! You can still see my original I […]

Holiday Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, May 28, 2012 @ 11:30pm in Blog, Car Issues, Entertainment, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

Been quiet around here the past few days because it was a 3-day, holiday weekend. Today (Monday, May 28th) is Memorial Day and a Federal holiday so most companies are closed, including Love’s. (Plus things like banks, post office, etc.) It’s also considered the “unofficial” start of summer here in the US. People BBQ and […]

Happy Leap Day!

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, February 29, 2012 @ 2:10pm in Blog, General Blather, Holidays |

Couldn’t resist making an entry for today since it’s not often you get a “February 29th” date stamp on your blog. 😉 I really don’t have anything terribly interesting to actually post about; it’s just another Wednesday other than the once-every-four-years date. But since it is a once-every-four-years date, I’m making a post anyway. Hope […]

Bandwidth – The Revenge

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 @ 10:02am in Blog, Customer Service, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

And…we’re back. Again. Yesterday afternoon, we hit our bandwidth limit for the second time. (Using over 20GB of transfer just for the month of January!!) I didn’t bother emailing support asking for more because it was the last 1/2 day of the month and it would reset overnight for February. Well, this morning, I checked […]

PayPal is Dumb

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 @ 10:39am in Blog, Customer Service, Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs |

For the third year in a row, PayPal managed to screw up sending me my replacement Debit Mastercard. And managed to screw up the process of re-sending it to me as well. They blame it on my address but the address, as-is, works just fine for other things. Because the account is under the business […]

New PhoenixFire Designs Blog Entry

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, August 25, 2010 @ 12:28pm in Blog, PhoenixFire Designs |

I think I mentioned that I started a blog to keep up with all the various jewelry I make. A lot of it is custom orders so it doesn’t wind up getting seen on PhoenixFireDesigns.com or my etsy storefront. And a lot of times, I think my custom work is some of my best stuff. […]



Posted by miss m on Monday, April 26, 2010 @ 12:33pm in Blog, General Blather |

Just wanted to take a moment to welcome everyone over to the new location of my blog. You’ll notice it’s a little different – namely more polished and professional! – but it should generally be the same experience overall. Registration is not required to comment, but you can register if you’d like so it remembers […]
