The Art of Teleconference

These are all the fabric choices you have to chose from. I'm currently on a teleconference. It is a great way to keep up with your training. This company offers so much support. I've contacted people but they always want to book so far in the future. My boss thinks her daughter may be interested in having a party - so it is great to just let everyone that I'm selling the handbags. I'm trying to get out of New Milford, Nan - my upline is so good that I need to get out of her territory. haha

Sickness in the house

Been keeping myself busy making cards - these are my newest ones. The "Tree" one is actually the first one I made when I began swapping cards. I think as I do them I do get better and better. The "Teacup" one is where I drew the cup myself and then traced it onto watercolor paper. I had bought a set of stamps for this swap - but I have torn apart my home and still can't find the stamps so I came up with this idea.
Hubby is sick and I am not feeling well. It is a good day to be home. I've had time to post my pics and catch up on some emails.

Took a breather

Well, I had one of the worst days I've had in a while. I tried all day to keep a positive attitude but one thing after another just went wrong and I wasn't negative but I was just beaten down. I did go and work out (which I have been very good about 4-5-6 times a week) but didn't do my full workout - I'm just beat right now.

I got my Wii yesterday and Wayne set it up tonight. I only have the sports games that came with it but Wayne is having a blast with it. I want to get Dance, Dance (or something like that) but it was $40 and I just spent all my saved up cash to get the Wii.

Both Book Clubs meet/met this week. Monday was our WWW group and we read Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie - it was pretty good, kinda like a Nancy Drew type book. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone but if anyone asked if it was good I could say yes. I won't comment on the other book - cuz I only have 30 pages and I do plan on finishing that tomorrow.

I've been working on cards and in fact have some news ones but haven't been able to find the time to even take a picture. Work has been CRAZY and I don't see it slowing down. How can that be - I'm in Recreation for crying out loud. I did find the title of my next job...Marketing and Community Out Reach Director. The best of both worlds - gotta have a dream I guess.

Brandi is back to nannying and working full time at a local gym. She will get benefits in March - Halalooyaaaa. Matt is back at school - the house is so quiet now and I'm not saying that is a bad thing.

Have WC Book Club tomorrow...I'll report on the book.

Happy Days everyone and positive thoughts.

186.4 Finally seeing some results on the scale.

This morning I actually got up early and went to the gym. I met a girlfriend there and we worked out in the pool. I had more energy all day - wish I didn't hate mornings so much...but things may change. I find that I am still not excited about going to work out - but I really don't hate it so much and I do feel so much better afterwards.

I'm going to a Tastefully Simple party tonight - I like the stuff, but it's on the pricey side. I know I will be buying some beer bread.

Last night I finished up one skein on my prayer shawl - I checked that the dye lots were the same but dratt it - I think the 2nd skein is darker. ugh - but it is pretty anyway - it's going by quickly.

Hope everyone had a wonderful day.

Some of my projects recently

Baby Card for Stock-Up Swap

This is the inside of my Sympathy card

This is one of my Sympathy Cards that I made for the Stock-Up Swap

This is a class I took with Patty and Jan in November 2009.

187.4 Thurs.

Well, the weight is going back down but slowly. After a couple of months at the gym I would think I would start to notice a difference. Others say they do-but I don't and my clothes don't fit any different. Oh well, it a part of my life now so I am not complaining.

We had our Woman's Club meeting last night and we are going to do a new fund raiser in the fall (Nov.) - a game show. I said I would be in charge of Consessions - ugh, Wayne will kill me one day for volunteering - but no one else was, plus it does sound like fun. I even felt like one of those old ladies as I was at the meeting knitting - I just need to take advantage of all my time if I hope to accomplish all that I hope to do. I talked to the ladies I work with and we have agreed on who we will give it to. Two of my friends want to take a knitting class at the High School but it is on a night when I have my trainer so I can't. I can knit - just don't really know how to pearl and if I have a question there are ladies at church who can help me. I also found out last night that there is a knitting group at the library - will have to look that info. up.

Having a meeting at work to get some art therapy into the building - hope that goes well.

Haiti - I feel so bad for all those people. I hope they get world support like we did (from most countries - there were a few who decided to stick their heads in the sand) with 9/11. I am adding them all to my prayer list - as I hope all of you do.
