just a headache

Friday, I went to the bank and found out that, Mellon is still dragging their feet getting my 401k ready to be turnover into and IRA. I finally was able to meet the guy who will be helping me choose what stocks and stuff I need to achieve my financial goal. Saturday I made it to the congregation book study. I got to my cousins shop. It was too busy to get my hair done. So I made an appointment. I will have to leave work early on the 1st so I can get my hair done. Successful appointment with Jamie in Aliquippa, A new Avon rep! Sunday I went to the kingdom hall but quickly got a headache so I suffered the rest of the day. Todd when to work early and then was home at 3:00 instead of going to work at 3:00. It was great to be able to sit at the table and eat dinner and talk. Then we went to the bookstore and hung out there for hours. I think it was a good day for all three of us.

Short person completed her training this week so I guess she will be working this summer. I will …

APRIL 12, 2008 Spring time in Paris.

This themed party came about because Deb over hear our nieces planning their trip to Paris. She also found out she was the one who was going to foot the bill for this wonderful once in a lifetime experience. While Deb explained the conversation to me she also decided that we should give them a party and named it Springtime In Paris. That was at least 17 to 18 months ago.

The party took place on April 12, 2008 in my garage.

One time about doing a themed party is finding the different items to make it look and feel like you are really there. Deb is determined in that way. She is the best theme party shopper anyone could dream up and she always gets a good price. She claims it’s about being in the right place at the right time. It is more than that. She often knows when to right time is. She carefully researches the papers to see if a store is having year end sale, or a liquidation sale, or is going out of business. She and I both will can…

Sunday, April 13,2008 @ 1:00 in the afternoon. My Uncle Bennie died.

He has been battling lung cancer for years. But the did not stop him from drinking or from smoking. When he had an stomach ulcer he stop drinking and when he had to use oxygen he stop smoking.

He looked like my dad, his brother. He talked like him and acted like him. He was always willing to listen when I did call him. I looked forward to his visits and I enjoyed visiting him. Any trips to or near MS I always visited him.

My father died of lung cancer. No bleeding, no Stroke he just died because the cancer was taking over. I remember sitting on my father hospital bed and him telling me that he felt guilty for his cancer. He felt that he had let all his daughters down and disappointed each of them by dying. I held his hand and told him that he had given us a firm foundation on which to build our lives. His words will always be with us to guide us and he did nothing wrong. He squeezed my hand and then he let it go. It was…


Terri is finally finished with school!

May 4 is her graduation day and I will be so happy and proud to see her walk across the stage and get her degree.

This is something that she decided to do for herself and finally she is done! This is a good thing because she was getting tired to school and if she did not achieve her goal she was going to chalk it up to a good try.

Congrats to Terri and we look forward to helping you achieve your next goal.

I was right 2 of 3 is going to have a wonderful little babe. This is something to celebrate!

I will be watching and waiting for the day when we can meet face to face!

This is exciting. Little Widget is in my prayers each and every day.

Nothing special.

I got up early this morning, showered and dressed. Had enough time to get a coffee and to do a little sewing.

On the suit I finally got the collar off and drafted facing the front. And tonight after the gym I will finish the edges to stop fraying.

On my skirt I took the zipper out because is just could not deal with the puckers it caused. So now the skirt will have an elastic waist. I should finish that also tonight.

Arrived at work on time and waited for the phone to ring. Got here at 8:00 and it is now 8:30 I am still waiting for the phone to ring. So I called Caroline “please test my phone to make sure it is working correctly”. She says sure. I get 10 calls back to back as soon as I hang up the phone.

As far as Avon is concern I will be calling all my new recruits to make sure all it going well. I will also create mailing flyers to promote my business in the neighborhood. One will be for the businesses in the area and the other will not be.

I have a folder full of ideas t…

First she buy me lunch......

The day started like it usually does. I get to work just in time and 2 of 3 is already answering the phones. Parents are making their usual stupid requests. In time 1 of 3 arrives and throughout the day 2 of 3 and me and have our usual conversations.

She buy me lunch which was right on time because I was not really aware that I was hungry. Then she buys dessert. Which I run and get, because its my lunchtime now.

Please note that I was warned numerous time that she was in PMS mode. However I was determined in my mind that this was not the case because it would be just wonderful for her to be with child. So I guess I disregarded that PMS stuff.

Then she said she was smoking again. I did not want her to smoke so I told her no you are not! (in the event you have not guess she is 2 of 3) The I called W a mutual friend and told on her. W told me that it was difficult to stop smoking completely especially understress. We talked a little more and then I went to 2 of 3 desk. Her expr…
