Whats your story?

There are so many different home based business out there that it really makes it so hard to choose which one is right for you. I have been through many of them.( Discovery Toys, Tubberwear, Jewels By Park Lane (By far one of the best), Thirty One, Tastefully Simple and each time I tryed my hardest) My friends would say to me OHHHH BOY here we go again, ANOTHER show anotherrrr try, shes at it again. And I feel that they were actually getting annoyed with me. And im sure they were. But it is what it is. BUTTTTT guesss what that never stops me and I will always look for new ways to make things happen. As i had written in a previous post i will be starting a new venture in life and I hope that this will be the one! Origami Owl, I have loved there product for so long and I wear my necklace all the time and I get sooo many complements on it that I feel I should try to sell it on my own! Well not on my own, With the help of my friend Michelle who I feel is an absolutely AMAZING person and I for one am so proud to call her my friend. I look forward to working with her and hopefully taking this all the way! You should think about starting your own story with me….

Hello Friends..Im Back..

IM BACK!! After a few long months and a whole LOT of changes in my life I’m back on the grid So let me fill you in on some of the things that have went on in my life..

I went back to school..ALMOST 40 years old and I decided that this is a great time to go back and finish what I had started almost 19 years ago..I was a beauty school dropout..kind of..lol I finished the school and took my written state board but never took my practical. So I worked in the beauty business with my temp till I needed to go get my actual license, BUTTTTTTT decided to have a baby instead..so there was a lil kink in my plan.. So I waited and waited and waited, then we planned our wedding…. then we had another baby…well the list goes on so lets just say I had to start all over again and it was such a great experience. It is not so easy to get back into the swing of school when you have not been there in a really long time.. Thank god it was a 3 month course! Well I passed and I am now a NYS licensed Nail Technician..

My Oldest son Andrew, Left in January for Boot Camp in the Navy, ONE of the HARDEST moments of my life was to watch him leave that night, and again to watch him get sworn in the next day and get on the bus. We were not able to speak with him but for three or four times during BC. The first call I received was when he got there, Call came in about 2:45 am and it was a scripted call stating they were there and ok and that they will be sending home a box with all of there clothing in it and to expect it via FED EX, that I need to sign for it and the next time I would hear from him would be in about 2 weeks.. and then he said I love you mom and then silence… OMG ..OMG I was beside myself! 2 weeks and I cant talk to you and it was the middle of the night..can you say panic attack.. OHH yes I forgot to mention my husband rolled over and says He ok..i said yes hes there .. he says ok good night..GOOOOD NIGHT are you crazy I need to talk I need to vent.. I needed to cry.. But needless to say 8 weeks passed and it was an EMOTIONAL 8 WEEKS  but I got the call 7.5 weeks in that ”’MOM, I DID IT..I AM A SAILOR” Can I tell you my heart was overfilled with joy because this meant I was going to be with my baby in less then a week to watch him graduate.. OHHHHH what a day that was..  He is now in A school in Pensacola FL and is learning his trade, He is going in as an AS..learing how to be a mechanic for planes and all that good stuff..

My husband and I have made a decision, A BIG DECISION ..We are putting our home up for sale and we are moving SOUTH!! South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky…. Not sure where yet but we are doing our research..

Last but not least I have decided to become an Origami Owl Jewelry Designer, But that will be for my next post, you can follow me as I make progress with that.

We lost the Tickets.. and that was a good thing…

This weekend was and will always be in one of my top 10 most incredible weekends ever! Even though it started off a lil slow it took off like a rocket! On saturday I took my son to the park to have a fun day out with his friends. I took my camera and iPad and off we went. It was about 60 degrees out so it really was not so bad and while they ran around like chickens without heads i just hung back and snapped a million pictures. It’s amazing how fast time goes when the kids are having fun! It was about 5 pm when we got home time to shower up and get ready for the second part of the night..We went to see a concert! But the best part about it was it was lil mans first concert! He was so excited and we got all dressed up, well not like going out to a party dressed up but jeans and nice shirt..We were going to a COUNTRY MUSIC concert… Miranda Lambert with Dierks Bentley and Randy Houser! He was so excited, BUT when it came time to leave the house my husband could not find the tickets!! OHHHHH BOYYYY i have never seen anybody scurry around the house so fast! We finally came to the conclusion that as he was cleaning out his car the tickets got mixed up in some papers that went in the TRASH!!! NOW that lil man is crying, we are beside ourself hubby makes one last phone call and says to us get in the car, We are going and we will figure it out on the way there… That was a very very QUIET ride! We get there and go in and we meet up with a friend of his who says ok, here is the deal i can only get you in standing room only, AKKKKK .. ok well lets see how the 8-year-old fairs with this for the next 4 hours.. But it better than not going! WELLLLL we walk in and guess what… We are standing in the pit not 3 feet from the STAGE!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!? HOLY CRAP!!!! The stage is in arm reach and lil man is not so sure if he should laugh or cry in excitment..I know the quality of the photos are not the best but it was kinda dark and it was on my iphone..Check this out:

The dog ate the recorder and I still have gates…

Welllll today was an interesting day! It actually was a good day. Any day I wake up is a good day. I went about my normal routines this morning and took the kid to school.. The other one takes the bus.. That’s good for me cause I get to sleep a lil later. That’s a good thing because I really don’t sleep at night!

Today when I got home I had to take my oldest for a job interview, so I ran in said hi to the puppy’s who were crazy because I did not have enough time to play with them today but I told them “Momma will be right back,  love you both”!

So off we go to take him to his interview that while we were on the way there they called to reschedule any way so I really not to need to rush. Ok so lets go pick up your brother and go to target because I need to get a gate for the house any way( I need the gate to keep the cat and dog separated ).

O.k.  So we get it and now it’s off to Applebee’s to meet the hubby for dinner! We got there early so I let my oldest practice driving for a half hour or so… Akkkkk look out he’s on the road.

I’m assuming at this point Bella, my boxer had decided ill show them..I do t want to be home any more and hops up on the counter to get my sons recorder that did not stand a chance! She destroyed it. Took off the bottom of it chewed the top of it, I wonder what kind of sound it made as she was chewing it to death. Going to be fun explaining this once to the music teacher…

Now mind you I have no babies in the house but I do a have gates all over the house. I never thought at this point in my life I would be installing swing gates because I got tired of stepping over the gates a million times a day, and hearing them crash because the cats getting brave and taunting the dog…

This is my CRAZY life but I love it!!!

 

Spring Break is over & THE KITCHEN IS DONE!!!!

SPRING BREAK is over!! Kids will be going back to school tomorrow. Easter is over, Kids are all hopped up on sugar and we are all wiped out from a day of eating. This has been a good break but its time to get back to reality.  Although we have really had no spring weather yet, and I don’t really think we will(because we have not had one in like 3 years) im assuming we are going to wake up to a blazing hot day some day soon.  And i am not complaining! I am not a cold weather chick! Give me a beach and 90 degrees and im a happy girl!   😉

Even the animals are ready for some normalcy!  The dogs are laying on the bed with us, the cat well she’s a cat and well all she wants to do is play! So her and I had a photo session, I LOVE PHOTO SESSIONS!  And my Iphone takes pretty good ones..
