The finished ARK with a little more updating

So the ark is finished! It is so cute! I will post more pics later with Jayce dressed as Noah and Jadon a little sheep. Genesis was going to be a monkey but she has visitation with her mom. ;(

I took dinner to Josh at work tonight. Well not just him then entire swing shift! I made chicken spaghetti, green bean wraps, garlic bread, strawberry cheesecake trifle and pecan tassies! There was not a lick left! They loved it all!

Then I made a lovely visit to the ER! We are going out of town tomorrow and I haven't been feeling 100% and found out I have a UTI! So just pray I get over it soon! I do have a pampered chef show in AL on Saturday night!

I'm excited about taking the boys to the Fall Festival tomorrow night! We will get to be with the Catledges that we meet in Japan and I just love the fellowship with them!

Well I am better get to cleaning and packing!

My last week to be half lazy

Ahhhh man!! HAHA!

I am sitting here getting all my host packets ready for my November shows! Oh and I booked another cooking show tonight for November!!! So now I am OFFICIALLY not booking anymore unless its a catalog show for November.

I have a total of 8 cooking shows, 1 booth, and 7 catalog shows for November. Geez... I never imagined my business would take off like this. Which all of this is great because it is a sell a thon month where I can earn our Spring products for free! WOOHOO!

I am excited for November 3. We are having a national sales meeting day and we find out what the January specials are going to be! I have been told they are the best specials for the entire year! Maybe I will get a booked calendar for that too!

Pampered Chef has really paid off alot for me! After November I will be getting a 2% raise! YAY!!

We even have an awesome recruiting special right now to start your business for less than $60!! How awesome is that!! I do have one consultant under me right now but I would love to have more! I am excited about what pampered chef has in store for our future!

It has really helped us alot especially with extra things! Like with my check next month I am buying all the materials needed to get the deck expanded outside and enclosed for my honey! ;)

Well I hope everyone is having a good start of the week and I'll be updating you throughout my month of November.

PS My sales goal for November is $5000!

Raedy for it to be over...

Once again I am home from church with a sick little one.

Jayce has been sick off and on for two weeks and Jadon some too.

Jayce brought home some kind of stomach virus from school that ran through everyone but me. I have sterilized this house to no end!

This morning Jayce woke up with a scratchy throat and a fever of 102!

Please pray for our family that we can get this mess out of the house!

Long exhausting weekends...

They are like neverending.

We had another busy one. Friday Party Lite party...Saturday Hobo Fest and Young adults fellowship....and Sunday church.

The boys have both been battling a sickness for about a week!! Errr... Jayce is bad today though!! He is hurting from his head he says to his belly. He is sleeping on the couch tonight because we dont want him ruining the carpet in his room. Anyways tonight my bro stayed home with them so Josh and I could go to church. When we got home Jayce still had a temp. We were giving him some meds and he said Mommy make me feel better. It breaks my heart when I cant do anything. But even being as weak as he is he still said The bad guy came into my body. Then he continued to say "Call Power Rangers and have them come help me"! =) That right there just made me laugh so hard. I love my lil guys!

I'm sad though because Josh is off tomorrow and we were going to have a fun day with them and take them to ChuckEChesse. But don't look like that will be on our agenda no more.

I have a pampered chef show on Thursday. I am super excited about it!

This weekend I am busy too!! HAHA I have a party lite show to go to on Friday then on Saturday morning. Then Saturday afternoon Josh and I are leaving and heading to AL for his 10 year reunion! This should be interesting!

Well I am off to bed. Starting my second week of 445am gym time! ;)

Ahhhh.....sitting down listening to rain...

Well I should be getting in bed. But boy do I hate going to bed without having my honey to snuggle with!! He started mids today and the boys aren't liking this schedule at all! But I know it will take some getting used to.

Me and my brother are starting to go to the gym at 5am in the morning while all the kids are down!! I am very excited! I lost alot of weight last year and was very happy! Before Josh left I had to be put on meds for my heart palpatations and anxiety. Well a side affect is....was you guessed it WEIGHT GAIN!! ERRR... But in Misawa I had plenty of friends to walk with and I mean MILES!! (thanks Arleney poo) and to others. But I know she reads this. I need to friend encouragement but I think it will be even better with my bro! He has gained alot of weight to considering about 3 years ago he was all muscle and no fat. So pray that this will work out for me. We are also going to turbo jam in the afternoon.

I have a busy weekend this weekend. I am having a Party Lite friday night (trying to help a girlfriend out). It will be her first show. So I am excited! And then I am doing a festival on Saturday and hopefully I will get alot of shows booked!

Well its 10:21pm and I better get sleep to WORK my butt off at the gym! LOL
