Extra $$

I've been thinking about earning an extra income. I know it would help tremendously to have a little more cash
going into our savings account. Who doesn't like extra $$$$?? I haven't ever met anyone who doesnt mind to have
a little extra in their wallet. So I really want to sell Tupperware. But I'm having a heard time locating someone that sells
it in my area. I just wish I didn't have to go through another consultant--I wish I could do it all on my own. But then again,
I would still need someone to show me the ropes.
I've been looking online at all the products, and they aren't very expensive, and I would LOVE to have alot of it in my own
kitchen. Maybe I should start buying some and testing it out so I can be a true example of the brand itself.
Just my thoughts for the day..

Today is the day.. I've planned a suprise 50th birthday party for my DAD!! Hopefully, everyone has kept it a secret, and I'm hoping that he has NO idea.. He's not really into receiving gifts, he usually gets mad if we get him anything.But i really just don't care haha. You only turn 50 once, and he deserves to have a day thats just about him! I'm making some bbq brisket, smoked sausage, dirty rice, & baked beans. I ordered a cake, of course a fishing cake that is..with decorations and all, picked up a happy birthday banner too. We are also have coconut pie & ice cream. Along with just one of two presents to top it off.
i hope it all goes well, and can't wait to see how he reacts! I love my dad, so this is for him.. Happy Birthday Dad! --wish me luck!

break out..

So I don't think i'm under any more stress than usual..but I could be lying to myself about that.. My poor face is breaking out like crazy.And let me tell you, I don't have acne..I never have. I might have one breakout here and there.. but I have 3 on my face right now. whats the deal. I know 3 may seem like nothing to most people, and I'm glad its not any worse--but I never ever have this problem.
It may seem silly to even talk about--but I sure hope it goes away. I can't hardly stand it, and my ever so LOVELY husband likes to point them out as much as possible..eww..

I have a confession to admit...

I'm a kitchen gadget lover.. If you take me to a store that has kitchen "stuff" (utensils, pots, pans, plates, bowls, etc) will never lose me, because thats where I'll be. I have every gadget you could ever need--except for a Kitchen Aid Mixer (in candy apple red) that i would LOVE to have..hint hint..haha! I don't know that I honestly have room for it,, but wouldn't it honestly complete my kitchen?? No kitchen should be without one, if i say so myself..
I have Rachel Ray pots and pans (which honestly aren't that wonderful) but thats what I've got, so thats what I use. I have the RR garbage bowl and knife set.. i don't use the garbage bowl for garbage since my trash can is in the kitchen--but i do use it for various things.the knife set isn't bad either. I have about 6 aprons, I try to use them, when I remember to..I usually remember right after i get something on my shirt, and think to myself--ahh, i shoulda had one of those million aprons i have on.. Oh well..
I love to just look at all the new kitchen gadgets, i'm in heaven.. I usually spend about 10-15 minutes looking thru all of it. I LOVE to watch QVC on sunday afternoons, In the Kitcehn w/David..great Show!! really i do love it. David gets mad when I watch TV, he says all i ever watch is the food network and HGTV... I told him if we had the COOKing Channel, I'd watch that
I just got a WOK, which my mom bought me.. ITs soo neat. when they say NON stick--they mean it! I've been told I need to get a cast iron skillet--working on that too.. I'm sorta scared to used cast iron, but gotta learn somehow right? Can you even use cast iron on a electric stove top? I should know that right?
I would also love to have a dutch oven, but gee whiz are they expensive. I know they make knock off versions of these, but then you can only cook on the stove with them and not in the oven too.. I need the kind that can handle EVERYTHING!
Also, I probably have 15 cook books if not more.. I love to just sit and look at them, I love to read blogs about cooking, i love to just look at different recipes.. I love everything about kitchens.. I Love to eat so thats always good! lol
maybe kitchen stuff is my addiction..ha!

Follow Thru Syndrome

I think I have follow thru syndrome...First let me explain what I mean by this.. there may be a better term to use, but this is what I came up with. I am super good at making lists of things to do, lists of things I need from the grocery store, lists of accomplishments I wish to achieve.. but following thru with these lists is my weak spot.. I follow the to-do's for maybe a week, maybe two if I'm lucky..but often after that they dissolve. They are still lingering around and I look at them from time to time..but nothing more than that..
I made a list of household chores--example: Monday:sweep, dishes, wash a load of laundry. Tuesday: sweep, dust, dry laundry and put away. Wednesday: sweep, clean bathroom, dishes. Thursday:sweep, swiffer, and mop, laundry, vacuumm..Friday: dishes, sweep..
You get the point. So I dd this for a week i think--go me.. Then, I got the bright idea I would make a list of every thing I did once I got home..Feed dogs, sweep, unload and load dishwasher, put some clothes away, organized the bathroom cabinet, go to walmart, bring the trashcans up to the house, let the dogs in for a while, start a load of laundry, make a grocery list..on and on and on..(hopefully, making me feel as though I accomplished something..anything) but that only lasted one day.. ONE day. wow...I can NOT follow thru.
THis does not mean that if I don't have a list the laundry or the dishes don't get done--b/c they do..eventually. when i'm out of underwear, I know its time to do some laundry--lol I try to not be that bad, but sometimes you just can't help it. Especially when your husband doesnt do ANY household chores--except taking out the trash, and that usually means, tying up the bag so I can't stuff anything else in there.. I usually end up throwing it out the front door b/c i'm sick of waiting on him to do But then again, he works hard for us--he's out in the BLAZING heat to help pay the if I have to throw the trash out the front door--and thats all I have to complain about, i suppose, well i know I'm pretty well off.. ( i do love that i can look past it) But anyways, i think maybe i don't have trouble following thru..maybe its just because I have Lazy syndrome..thats what my husband would call it.. I'll grow out of it, little by little, maybe, maybe not.who knows.
Theres no medical term for my thats a plus in itself.haha!
