I'm still here. You know me with my busy and exciting life, I always have so much to blog about! NOT. My days are pretty much run run run from the time I get up till the time I go to bed. I went through a few nights of I would be so tired I would crawl into bed and then I couldn't fall asleep. I would just lie there and think about what I didn't get accomplished that day. I'm worried sick about how we are going to pay for two kids in college. That's what most of my stress is...finances. I know I need to go back to work but right now, Mark needs me. I am hoping to hang in there until he gets to middle school. He still goes to tutoring two days a week. I am sure that if I were to work that would have to stop. So, I've been really good with the grocery budget and I've stayed away from Michaels, Joanns and the scrapbook stores. I've done really good. I'm so proud of myself. Last Friday, I even went to a crop and spent less than $5. I used up all my own supplies!

So, I've been wondering what else I could do to help in the finances and I have decided to sell.................................
Yep. I'm an AVON lady. It only cost me $10 to sign up and there are no minimums. Of course, the more you sell, the more you earn. I've always like Avon. I love their lip glosses and nail polish. I decided on Avon because it's affordable. They are always having sales and specials so I thought what the heck. If I could earn enough to pay one bill a month then I will be happy. I will have a website up and running soon. So, if you are interested, let me know and I will add you to my email list and I will post my website as soon as it's up.

Can you believe in 5 months I will have another high school graduate???? He still hasn't made up his mind yet on where he wants to attend college. Hopefully, he will decide within the next week. I'm still trying to take it in that my little Greg will be 18 in April. Where has the time gone? Seems like just yesterday, we brought that little blue bundle home. I have a confession though. shh.. Don't tell my kids. Greg has been the easiest of all my kids! So easy going. No drama like the girls and he is so opposite of Mark. I don't know what I will do when Greg isn't around to keep me sane.

I had to stop working out with my trainer. It cost too much money. HOWEVER, I'm exercising on my own. I got a Wii Fit for Xmas and have been using that. Plus, I've been walking and really watching my diet. I haven't gained weight since I've stopped working out so that is good. As soon as I get a little more walking in under my belt, I'm going to give running a try.

Not much else going on. We survived a major blast of cold air. WOW was it cold but I'm not going to say much more about it because I know it's a lot colder in other places!

Oh yeah....I'm never going to complain about doing laundry again. My dryer died and I was without for over a week before my new one came. I must say, I've never been so excited to get an appliance! I love it. It works so much better than the old one too. I never realized that it was so bad and on it's way out.

Well, I'm off to bed. I'm exhausted. Tomorrow is a half day so I need to get an early start since the kids will be home early and mess up my schedule.

Have a wonderful hump day!

Hey there, though its been a while, I thought I'd come by and try and catch up... we have 4 years between kids so luckily one will be done before the other starts, but I know about that worrying stuff! And congrats on the budgeting and using stuff up at crops - that always feels good. Now tell me about the new dryer since we are in need of one? What did you get, do you like it, etc??
