Good Bye July

Wow. The end of the month. Hard to believe summer is half over. I had so much I wanted to get done this summer and it just has not happened. It has been so HOT here that I can't stand going outside. It's almost too hot to swim. I am afraid the boys will get fried. And me in all my whiteness! We plan on spending the day at the pool tomorrow but we will see. With a heat index of 105 and 93% humidity...hmm...not sure that will happen.

I had my first Maddy Moo Creations Tote bag party with my sister on sunday and we just figured up her totals and she ended up getting 5 bags for only $61. I am truely impressed with the hostess program they offer. That is very generous. Got two bookings off it too! Thanks Lindsey & Sarah! So I am pleased with the results. And I made $100 profit for 2 hours worth of work. And I carried my sample bags up to her apartment on one shoulder in one trip! How easy is that! No lugging heavy scrapbooking stuff up and down mulitple times.! LOL

Which reminds me...My party for tomorrow was cancelled tonight. Blessing, really. With the other expo coming up, I am beyond busy. No skin off my back.

Well...better get upstairs to bed so I watch DAYS! Gotta find out if Carrie & Austin are going to get back together and what Shaune & Belle are doing about the baby they are sharing. For all you DAYS fans, I sure hope Shaune & Phillip don't leave the show in the fall as rumored. They make the show lately. Let's hope the new writers take the show in a better direction. ok. OFF MY SOAP BOX! LOL HEE HEE

Hello August!

What a day

Well, I made it thru the expo today without Bev at my side. It was a very odd feeling. I had her downline there helping me so that was good but still not the same. I marked most of the products below retail just to move some and it still looks like we didn't move anything. I can't wait to get rid of the tagz. Those things have been a thorn in my side since we got them. I have had the same bunch since I first started with TLC. I loved them and thought they would be a great seller...NOPE. Live and learn.

One more day then it's pack up and head to my sisters for the Maddy Moo party. Then I have a TLC party on Tuesday and another expo next weekend.

Off to bed...

Polka Dot Potato

Found this neat site. It has great prices on digital stuff. I need to make sure to tell Krystal Hartley. She is just so talented. I hope I can be like her when I grow up! LOL I just wish I knew how to do more digital stuff. I love using LifeTimez but I know there is soooo much more out there.

Well, back to look at the site.

Birthday Boy, Will

Here he is! The Birthday Boy! I finally figured out how to add photos! Yahoo...I am learning. However, I got two pictures on here and can't figure out how to delete one! LOL So I just made it really small. Someday I will figure out how to edit and I will remove it. But for now it will just have to have the two pictures here! Will is sitting next to me watching me type and keeps saying, "I see a W or I see an L" Funny! This picture was taken over the 4th at Houghton Lake in the garage. He was just sitting at the picnic table and I said, "WILL" and he instantly knows to look and smile. ah...a well trained child!


Happy Birthday William

We celebrated the arrival of 8:18 am with a countdown and then sung "Happy Birthday". He is now 4. It's official. Where does the time go? I can't believe we blink once and's years later. He has some of my worst traits too. Bummer! Stubborn, sassy, & whiney. Oh brother, why didn't I listen to my mother?! LOL But at the same time he is funny, imaginative, lovey, cute, polite. Oh yeah, I almost forgot one bad trait...doesn't listen all the time. Needs to be told repeatedly to stop jumping on the bed while mommy is typing! LOL

Now what was I saying?.....

I need to go get a shower and get my van packed for the expo this weekend. Poor Bev is having a heart cath done and can't come. So I am going alone. Pray for me! LOL Or else commit me.

Real Rach

Had William's 4th Birthday today. Hard to believe my baby is four now. Worked outside in the afternoon trying to get the barn done. What were we thinking, trying to build something on our own. We are up to the shingles and still need to build the doors. I will be so happy when this is done. It seems to consume my life. Well, off to bed. I am so tired today and just can't seem to shake this sickness.

Wednesday, July 19, 2006's a good thing

Well, I finally figured out how to access my blog! I was just talking with my dear friend Shell and told her I had a blog. She wanted to know the link...well, I wanted to know that too! She asked me if bookmarked it, NOPE! But I will! Bookmarks, it's a good thing!

Real Rach

What kind of name is that for a blog title? I could not think anything to write. I was not aware that you neede to name your blog! LOL I am so new to this concept. I just see that everyone has one so I thought, why not. I understand that we are to use these as a type of journal. So it will be Real. And I am Rach. So, Real Rach. There's the thought behind my title. Took all of 3 seconds to think of it. Maybe later I will find some really cool catchy name but for now this will do!
