My Son’s Favorite Show May 19, 2016

Filed under: Cartoons,Kids — admin @ 1:42 pm

Steven Universe

Ok I’m a sucker. My son just loves the Steven Universe cartoon, it shows on Cartoon Network. He will talk about it and draw pictures. He’s actually quite good. I’ll have to share some when I get my hands on them. So last night he was talking about a few of the episodes and I was just sitting there like uh huh. I’ve never really watched them. I’ll watch a YouTube clip with him. So I’m sitting here at work and figured I would watch one. Just so I can actually understand what he’s talking about. It was pretty good. It’s hard to share what the show is actually about, so here’s what Steven Universe Wiki says:

First airing on November 4th, 2013, Steven Universe is a coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, the youngest member of the group, the Crystal Gems, a team of magical guardians, and protectors of the Universe. The animated series was conceived as part of the shorts development initiative at Cartoon Network Studios, and is created by Emmy and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist, Rebecca Sugar. Sugar is Cartoon Network’s first solo female show creator.

It has actually made me want to watch more. Does that make me a strange parent or a parent that is actually into what her kid does. Yes he’s my only one and he’s turning 13 in July! I just embeded the episode I just watch called Super Watermelon Island.

I would like to know. Have you watched a show that your kid(s) have watched to know what they are talking about or have you just faked it? I’d like to hear your thoughts on this one.


6 Easy Ways To Earn Extra Money May 12, 2016

The following are some reward sites that I have joined.

Vindale Research

This is free to join. They will email you survey opportunities. It takes 30 seconds to sign up and they payment is through your paypal account.  If you want to get paid for your opinion go and join. They also have codes if you follow them as well.

Opinion Outpost

Another free opinion site. Just take simple surveys. They also pay out with PayPal. You need at least 100 points or $10 to redeem.


I just love Swagbucks. I really started using it last year and I was able to get my son a free subscription for Xbox live gold for a year. Just by doing what I always do. Online shopping, watching videos, daily poll, searching the internet, printing and using coupons and others.

From SwagBucks is the web’s most popular rewards program that gives you free gift cards and cash for the everyday things you already do online. Earn points when you shop at your favorite retailers, watch entertaining videos, search the web, answer surveys and find great deals. Redeem points for gift cards to your favorite retailers like Amazon and Walmart or get cash back from Paypal. Swagbucks has already paid out over $120 million in cash and free gift cards.

Put cash back in your wallet. Join for free today.


Ebates like SwagBucks  but all you need to do is shop. You get a certain percentage back for every order you place. Well depending on if they offer it or not. Joining both Ebates and SwagBucks together are another choice. I did it.

CheckOut 51

Get money back, like using a coupon, for doing what you always do. Going shopping. Lately I have seen diaper rebates. You can request payment once you hit $20. They send it as a check. No big deal. Join CheckOut 51.


Like CheckOut 51, but I have actually earned more back. I have gotten back since joining Ibotta over $100. They have teamwork which earns you extra cash back for completing it and they sometimes also offer cash back if you complete certain tasks. They make payment through PayPal once you hit $20.
