p.s. Still not 100% potty trained, but we are creeping up on 75% so hopefully it will click soon, or I fear my kid will be a social outcast, if not someschooled because they give her the boot.
Wish me luck!

Earn a part time income from your couch?
Be your own boss?
Make $100,000 in 5 minutes?
You’ve seen these claims, perhaps you’ve tried a few as well.
As a mom that LOVES staying home, I too have fallen prey to just about everything under the sun that will give me something to do while potentially earning money for doing it.
Some work, some don’t!
In my 6 year career as a stay at home I have tried
2 Part-Time Jobs ( and learned that bosses don’t care about sick kids!)
Blogging for sponsors (and learned that while fun, I’ll never get rich blogging!)
Direct Sales (and learned that I buy way more than any customer)
however; feel free to check out my websites and shop away
Online Surveys (little pay, slightly overwhelming amount of daily e-mails)
Secret Shopping (Super fun, better pay than sitting on the couch)
Self-Employment (Actually the best paying!)
What do you do for some extra earnings, or a hobby?
If you would like any extra info on the companies that I use for surveys or secret shopping let me know and I’ll hook you up with real, legitimate, no money out of pocket opportunities. Because yes, I HAVE paid some money for some that turned out to be no good.
Have a great Sunday,

Now, where were we?
Oh yes! We have moved on to Obadiah!
Uhh, Short. God is still angry. You didn’t miss anything.
Moving on…ooh Jonah (I remember something about a whale!)
God told Jonah to go thisaway, but he didn’t, he went thataway (never good!) He was running away from god, or sailing away from god, as he got on a boat.
God found him and sent a storm. Jonah didn’t notice because he was asleep.
They needed to blame someone for the storm so the crew chose Jonah. Or at least the short straw did!
So they threw him overboard to end the storm.
He gets eaten by a big fish. He stayed there for 3 days and 3 nights
( How could he tell?, Did he pop out every so often? Ask the fish?)
Fish throws up Jonah.
God still wants Jonah to go thisaway. This time he goes.
Jonah gets to the town and doom and glooms everyone. So they starve themselves (and animals) and wear burlap (animals too) for god.
God is appeased.
Jonah is now pissed because god is too nice. Wishes to be smited. Doesn’t get smited.
Oh now I don’t know about you but I thought there would be more to the whale thing. All I got was that Jonah was fish puke.
Oh wait, I had one interruption of the hubs phone ringing at 6:45, I ran into the bedroom to grab it but he was already yelling at the telemarketer for not having checked the time zone. Oops
Izabella woke up at 8:00ish and proceeded to tell me that she would, in fact, be having popsicles for breakfast. NO GO. She had pizza instead!
Some other stuff happened here, but I can’t/won’t remember, so It doesn't matter.
Then we met my step dad
at the harbor
for fish and chips
and beer! ( No photo!)
Then he informed us, he brought presents! Everyone loves presents!
Except presents from him!
Just what we needed! PILLOWS! From his house that he no longer needs!
The best part???
My family walking around the harbor carrying aforementioned pillows!

For tell the truth Tuesday I decided to talk about the other side of honesty. Lying.
Do you know any liars? People that are constantly telling you the opposite of truth. People that have lied to you for so long that when they tell you ANYTHING you don’t believe them. Even when you want to? Even when you should?
I recently realized that people don’t forget, ever! The same people that got lied to, keep not believing them, no matter what they say to their face.
Lying gets you nowhere. Lying complicates your life and destroys relationships.
The lies they keep hidden from one group, comes out in another, and soon everyone knows it’s all a lie.
Not a great way to live life.
Better to be honest and have people know where you stand and who you are than have them find out the hard way.

The ever elusive Jones’?
The life I have was created not by emulating what I appreciated in others but always by determining what I didn’t want to be. All of my life experiences thus far have shown me the traits and the people I don’t wish to be like.
I have eliminated many things I don’t want to be, just by watching it happen to other people.
I don’t want to be: A drug addict, white trash, fat, lazy, a spoiled entitled princess, a boomerang parent, a boomerang child, an old person eating Alpo or poor, among others.
When who you are gets called into question, you have to be able to stand up and say this is who I am, for me I feel like I can’t say that because instead I say this is who I’m not.
Same thing? Perhaps!

I thought I wrote a blog post 2 days ago, but apparently the Percocet messed that up!
Let’s play catch up: I’m sure it would have gone something like this.
Hello Everyone, I’m feeling pretty good! Still waiting for the pain!?! The boobs are swollen, blah, blah, blah
That’s pretty much what it would look like today as well.
The absolutely worst part of this is trying to force myself to relax, and just stay in bed. Hardest thing EVER! Especially because the pain level just isn't that bad. Short of being able to lift things I feel like I could still do most things.
Take that back…I can’t sweep, apparently that takes nothing but pectoral muscles. Good to know!
I have only been taking pain pills at night since Friday and that’s mostly just to help me sleep. These are not the most comfortable things to sleep with. They are pretty hard still.
I’ve been using Arnica and that seems to be doing a great part of the pain management.
OK, back to sitting,

OK, surgery went great, and I am really surprised by the lack of pain. I expected it to be so much worse, I would liken it to when your milk comes in for nursing. Just very full.
I had an appointment this morning to get the bandages removed, and what a relief that was! I can take a full breath again! AMAZING.
The downside is that I didn’t sleep very well, but that was just because I couldn't get comfortable, I am a side sleeper and right now that just isn’t an option. So I slept on the couch and watched movies all night.
My next post-op appointment is on Monday. I think it’s just for a check-in.

How am I feeling? Nervous is an understatement!
Yesterday I had a migraine and unfortunately the only thing I can take is Tylenol! I apologize to the makers of Tylenol, but when it comes to migraines, it just doesn’t work!
Wednesday can’t come soon enough, I just need to get this over with!
Tuesday, May 31, 2011
I think the best news I got was that recovery isn't as bad as I originally anticipated. I got the list of approved exercises and walking is on the list after 3 days, so yay, I take that to mean that after two days of feeling not so great there is a light at the end of the third.
I’m getting really excited, crazy nervous, but very excited. I can’t wait to see them! How am I going to make it a whole week?

Also because I thought it looked like this…
But really the ads were misleading and it really looks like this…
either way, it’s still awesome!
Especially this drink.
What to do on a Saturday? I know…Watch a movie!
Three friends hit the slopes for a weekend of skiing and snowboarding. But when they convince the chairlift operator to let them take one last run before closing, Parker, Joe and Dan find themselves stranded in midair, alone and freezing!!
Amazing or what?
I know..So bad it’s great!
This may seem quick to some, but this is something I have always considered as a possibility when I realized they were never coming.
After too much internet research and several, sometimes conflicting, consultations I have decided on a Dr (One of the best in the country) While he is not the cheapest I feel as if this is something that should not be shopped for by affordability. His specialty is breasts, which is perfect, as that’s what I am getting worked on. I think this was an important factor to consider, as he knew additional techniques that would give me better end results. Things that the other Dr’s never mentioned.
Now, I did receive some questioning from friends and family as to whether or not the options he said were necessary really are, especially if none of the other docs had mentioned it. I am going with my gut on this one, and am going to trust the “Master” surgeon.
This is not something to be taken lightly or rushed into, and I felt as if i was going crazy for a few days. It seemed like every hour that went by I had a new emotion regarding this procedure, do it, don't do it, save the money, spend the money, To boob or not to boob, that was/is the question. Fortunately the staff at his office let me know that if I didn't have these feelings, that he wouldn't even operate on me. This IS NOT something to be taken lightly.
So here I am 10 days away and I am feeling like I have made the correct choices. Implant style (silicone), size (C), incision type (crescent/peri-areolar), and most importantly my Doctor.
My pre-op appointment is on Tuesday morning so I likely won’t have any updates until then.
p.s. I won’t be posting photos, there are way to many pervy people out there, so well be keeping this PG.

Monday - Something with Chicken (vague, but it will be good)
Tuesday - Something with pasta (also vague, still sounds good)
Wednesday - Something from a crock-pot (Who knows?)
Thurdsay - Something vegetarian
Friday - ??
Saturday - Pizza? Chinese? Most likely delivery!
Wow! Impressive or what. Look at me starting the week off all amazing like!
and...here comes the ADD
I love my vegetarian cookbook.
It's not fussy at all, and the ingredients aren't weird, or hard to come by, or difficult.
You should get one! Or just read my blog and steal the recipes from me! Is that illegal?

Much like other sales parties you have been to, where there is a sales person there, telling you about all about their products and why you NEED them!
Or is it???
Scentsy offers something very special called a basket party.
What happens is this....
You want FREE stuff, right? (of course you do, who doesn't!)
Step one - Tell me you want FREE stuff!
Step two - I will hand deliver, or ship directly to you, a party in a box. This includes samples and testers!
Step three - You show these amazing products to your friends, acquaintances, co-workers, EVERYONE!
Step four - They fill out an order form, or order directly on the website for your party!
Step five - After two weeks, or so, you return the items and order forms. (Shipping on me!)
Step six - You choose your half priced items (up to 5), and free items (up to 15% of your party total)
Step seven - You receive all of your ordered items, including you FREE goodies!
Step eight - There is not another step! It's that easy!
Interested??? Of course you are!
So go ahead and get started with step one!
Let's compare...Shall we!?
4 Large Jar Candles - $100.00
One time purchase - Scentsy Full Size Warmer - $30.00
4 Scensty Bars, One per Quarter. These last approx 60-80 hours - $20.00.
Total - $50.00 - THAT'S HALF PRICE!
And that's full price, not taking advantage of any of the promotions that Scentsy offers!
Such as the Full Size System, which is only $40.00 and contains one Full Size Warmer and 3 Scentsy Bars.
That's almost a full year in comparison, for less than half the cost.
Plus the added bonus, that you can choose the warmer that would best suit your decor. Full Size, Mid Size or Plug In!
I don't know about you, but one of my favorite scents is grapefruit, and the candle version of this is PINK! Nothing in my house is pink, it makes me CRAZY! But, I love the smell.
NOW...I have a lovely red warmer that matches my kitchen and I get the smells I love!
Its a win, win!
