Speed Limit Sign Birthday

Two days ago I turned 45. Yes, my age now equals a speed limit sign. While I worked both jobs that day, I still enjoyed it. I am blessed and grateful to be able to still work among other things. Of course I'd rather be off that day but it wasn't in the cards. So I made the most of it and smiled all day.

I will of course have lots of dinners coming up because it's hard to coordinate all the family and friends. I figure it's a great way to stretch out the birthday celebrations.

Antique flea markets

Today I'm at an antique flea market. I have a booth that was given to me by my Tastefully Simple upline. She couldn't do it so she passed it on. So I packed up what I was going to take and put it aside. Then I got to thinking that I could sell some of my "junk". Now I use the word junk in a good way. Because not all junk is really junk when it's someone else's treasure. 

So I set up my booth and almost immediately I start selling my junk. Someone asked about an old the thermometer that I had and I said $3. She was like oh no it's worth more than that. I'll pay $10. I'm sitting there thinking that's not the way this works. You pay what I ask for or ask if I'll take lower. Not ask if I'll take more. So I was like ok I'll take your $10. Heck I got it for free, so see ya thermometer and hello money. 

The people that come though are definitely interesting. I love dealing with them and I always end up with some weird crazy story. There's still an hour left so let's see what happens.

Boycotting the Oscars

With all the talk of boycotting the Oscars, I thought I’d join in. I figure since I am a short, middle-aged, overweight, blue eyed woman that I would boycott too. I mean why not, I’m not nominated at all for anything, not even for my blonde hair being an extra in my life. Which is very exciting with all the work in the sky I do with the fish and worms. Not to mention all the movies I make on Pluto.

Not to mention Billy Bob and Yoda making a movie this past month and I directed and produced it. It was a short movie with them on the beach enjoying the water and sand. They frolicked and played all day before going back to the Mars space station that’s in the ocean. It going to be a classic movie 25 years from now and they will have reunions for years and years. Currently the movie is only available on my iPhone. They are shy creatures and only want it viewed once a year.

So until I get nominated for one of my Billy Bob and Yoda short films or for being myself in my own life, I’m boycotting going to any space award shows or any award show for that matter. Who am I kidding? I don’t need an award to let me know I’m blonde. I can see it every day in the mirror. Some days it’s a good looking award other days it’s kind of scary since the hair tends to stand straight up in the morning.

Until next time, later peeps.

New job and home show

I started week 3 at the new job. So far it's good and I fit right in with some people. Since it's a small company it wasn't too hard to do. I am loving it there so far. 

This past weekend I did a 2 day home show. I set up my Tastefully Simple items. It was a pretty good show. I didn't make my booth back but I sold more than the last one in September and met some more awesome people. 

Things are looking up from here. A new permenant job and a new part time job. Since the last one was seasonal. Now it's back to th crazy busy life. Throw in some sparkle and fun and I'm living the life of a beach person.

New Year equals new job

Starting a new job is exciting and scary.  Everything is new and different and you don't know what to expect.  I start a new job on Monday.  It is a permanent job with benefits.  While it is not much more money than what I make now I will at least have the medical benefits and vacation time.  Not to mention a 401k plan.  I am grateful for this opportunity.  It kind of just fell into my lap.  A friend I bowled with years ago told me about it.  Her husband works there and he turned in my resume.  Interviewed on a Monday for it and got a job offer on Tuesday.
It will be sad to leave where I am at now.  But it will be good to be in a new permanent position.  While I know what I am leaving and do not know what is on the other side I know in the end it will be better because I will no longer be a temporary employee.
I am blessed to have had to go through this.  It has made me a stronger person.  While I still need to pay things off I know I am on a better road.  I can achieve anything I want to.  Things sometimes happen for a reason.  I have made my mistakes over the past 2 and a half years but I have grown and learned a lot.
While 2015 has gotten better it looks like 2016 will be even better.  Good things happen to those who go out and go for things and have faith that it will work out.
I cannot wait to see how the new job is and what is in store for me in 2016.  Until next time, later peeps.

My Underachieving Christmas Letter

It has been an interesting year.  All the kids and creatures are doing wonderfully.  They are all out of the house and living is some type of house structure or in a matchbook.

Billy Bob is slowly coming out of hiding and showing up in pictures.  He’s thinking of going into standup and going on tour.  He is tired of being locked up in a purse or left somewhere.  His sister Ursula has felt the need to go to Alaska and open an Orange Farm.  She thinks it will be very successful because it is costly to ship fresh Turnips and Brussel Sprouts there.   Her Financial Accounting Doctorate will be useful in this field.  The twins Agnes and Augustus are going to Antarctica to raise Butterflies and Roses.  They want to spread some color in an area that is so white.   They will take online classes to learn how to do hair and car repairs so they can add that service to the area.  Both services are very much in demand in the area amongst the penguins and seals.

Since completing the 4th grade, Buck the Golden Retriever, he runs a fish grooming business on Mars.  He has become very busy and has a lot of clients.  He has a nice house on the dark side of Mars and is very happy.  Skippy the Iguana is floating around space looking for space garbage to send back to other planets for recycling.  He has found a lot of garbage but not a lot of places to take it to recycle.  So he’s thinking about changing his colors and doing something else.

As for me, I’m working a full time normal job and trying to keep circus of kids and creatures away from fuzzy bunnies and the chairs.  I have recently purchased a dirt farm so I place to retire to and run in my purple years.  I am looking forward to being able to grow some dirt and supply the universe with it.

The thoughts that pop into my head

Bungee jumping equals lemon shakeups and milk shakes. 

If you wanted someone to work better and harder then pay better. 

Good thing about having an elephant in your house making a mess he can also clean it up by knocking it down. 

Monkeys and Butterflies

Purple monkeys running all through the fields

Chasing lime green butterflies

Oh what fun this is says the monkeys

When we chase the butterflies and we can play

Play on the slides, swings, and in the trees
