Spring Break at a close.
So, Spring Break is done, and I am back at work. Bummer! I had a really good week. I hiked 3 different days, shopped for some much needed Spring clothes therapy, and did a lot of Spring cleaning. The best was just hanging out out with the pooches.
I am going back to work with a new purpose though. I have decided that I need to find out once and for all if my coffee dream can be a reality. I knew before I left for Spring Break that I don't want to stay where I am at very much longer, and I STILL can't stop thinking about my dream. I need someone who knows to tell me I am full of it, or I need the doors to swing wide open. I have stepped up my plans, and went to the Chamber of Commerce last Friday. They gave me a number of a nonprofit organization that counsels people like me on whether I should really start my own business, and if so they help you get started and are there for you whenever you need it. My first task with them is to go to a Workshop April 17th. It's called, appropriately enough, "Should you start your own small business". I have been instructed to start writing my business plan draft using tools from their website. I am also looking into South Dakota & Wyoming as possible sites. So, please pray for me that I listen very closely to God. I really feel that he is leading me in this direction. Right? God?

This is what I found in my laundry yesterday! Can we say "shopping"? Well, maybe. I am tempted to see what I could get in a cute spring shoe.

Spring Break!
What does Spring Break mean to me. Well, for one a lot of SLEEP! I love sleeping in as most of you know. Yesterday, we kicked off the week with a hike at Red Rock Open Space. Karen, it is soooo much better than when you were here last! They have opened up so many new trails. The area is huge, and they are still working on new trails. I was hiking for an hour before I new it. This pic is not from Red Rock, I forgot my camera, so next time I will swap the pics for the right area. In short, I just couldn't believe the beauty that is right inside the city. Gorgeous! It's good to live in Colorado.
The rest of the week will be spent on projects I neglect normally, cleaning (spring and otherwise), yard work, and research for new possibilities out there career wise. So, not glamorous at all, but nice. The downside will be the blogging I think. I have time to blog right now, but many of you do not. So, I will have to entertain myself by writing instead of reading blogs. Anyway, Happy Spring everyone!

Getting Old? Or Sexy Librarian? I ask you.....

Yup, I fell off. Off the wagon that is! I knew it would happen, but even though is has, it is not going to stop me. The month of February has been an extremely busy one for me work wise. My agency had a big Federal Review from Head Start to prepare for. Not doing well, can effect funding. So, we really had to work hard to make sure everything is up to par. Loooonnnnggggg days, and late nights. Then there is the Silpada thing, getting that going. So, as you can imagine no time for my New Years Resolutions here. No Yogo being done, no Pilate's, no hand weights. I have done some walking with the poochies, but not as much as they would like! I have no idea what I weigh, and I am scared to find out. I have been eating more fruits and veges, but I am not on a good eating schedule right now.
Oh well, we are in a new month, right? So, I am no longer going to call them New Years Resolutions, and not because I can't keep them. But because they really are a promise to myself. And even though I fell away from it for a while, I made a promise to myself. I am going to get right back up in that wagon!

Well, I can finally breath! What a week I have had. My agency went through our Federal Review this week, which has meant a lot of work this month, but most especially this week a lot of early mornings and late nights for me. And this is the week I plan my first Open House! Sounds crazy even to me, but I just knew that my work friends would be needing a fun release right after the Review, and I was right. I didn't get my whole house cleaned, had to shut some doors, but it didn't seem to matter. The important areas were clean. The picture here is the after affects of the party after much playing with jewelry. People liked my table presentation. The Sangria was really good! Almost everyone bought something! I even had some out of towners buy!:) I forgot to do a lot of things, it's hard being the hostess and the Rep. at the same time, but luckily my sponsor Vivian had my back. I didn't talk much at all about what Silpada jewelry is, but I really didn't need to since most of these people had been at my other parties. I messed up on my math, Monkey help! But we fixed everything, and people were happy. The party ran long, which was great. I earned more free jewelry to add to my table, and a profit, which I need to pay back to my self. I really need 5 more parties like this to start making a profit for me. But I was able to get some Bookings for April and May. I have a couple phone calls to make for possible bookings in March. So, this was a great start! Thank you all for your prayers and support!!
