How was your May Day? I honestly did not know what May Day was or what it consisted of until I read up on at Wikipedia. If you (like me) would like to know the orgins of this holiday I encourage you to read THIS article. I learned that May Day is a day to celebrate the beginning of spring. Some countries celebrate with a variety of floral festivals while others recognize May 1st as an important day for the labor movement. Some celebrate with parades while others may not recognize the day at all. In Hawaii, many celebrate “Lei Day” on May 1st, a colorful day that honors Hawaiian tradition and culture. Did you do anything to celebrate?

In other news, my little one nearly climbed out of her crib today. I’m going to have to keep a closer eye on her, wouldn’t want her to fall out and hurt herself!
Well, off to watched The Boy in The Striped Pajamas, that is if I can pull my husband from his computer. I heard it was a tear jerker kind of a movie…just my cup of tea.
I’m a stay at home mom, so this means I am home alone with my child all day long. I admit I do worry about our safety and wonder what would happen if someone decided to break in. A neighbor from where we just moved from house was broken into, so I have a good right to worry. I don’t worry so much at things getting stolen ( though it would be rather annoying) but for the safety of my family. I recall when I was younger and my family lived in the boonies, a man came into our yard and was snooping around. My mom and three other sisters were there and we were told by mom to be very quiet. He took a leak, sad to say, in our yard and drove away after 10-15 minutes. My mom did call the police and they were their as soon as they could be but for us that wasn’t soon enough as any civilization was about 10-15 minutes away. What if he broke in with means to rob and hurt us? I shudder at the thought.
I have considered getting a home security system put in when my husband and I own our own home. Protect America has a wireless security system that I’ve learned would be easy and affordable to have put in. Their prices are extremely affordable compared to all other top home security leaders. They offer five various security packages that would work if you had a small place or even a quite large one. I think the silver package would be the best for my family as it has 10 point monitors that would be used for doors and windows. I dont’ plan on owning a home much bigger than that.
The Silver Package includes:
$34.95 per month
Talking Control Panel
10 Entry Points
Internal Siren and Door Chime
One Button Arming
3 Window Decals
1 Yard Sign
Another wonderful feature is that you can customize your system by adding additional equipment at the time the order is placed or anytime in the future! If you need more information, feel free to call the toll free number 877-470-2751, for more information. Also, by calling this number you get two key chain remotes with your order!
