Another new adventure brewing in my pea brain....

So, Mom and I were talking today, and there was discussion about possibly selling Avon together.  I've been looking to try and do something from home, to make a little money, so that I don't have to put Ava in daycare, and I can still feel like I'm contributing something to our finances, rather than just being the one to spend the money. :P  I think that selling Avon would be something that I could do fairly easily, and I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head for drumming up business.  I think that it would be something that would be fairly easy for me to do, especially since I have a lot of friends that would potentially order.  Mom knows gals at work, and I could solicit around town plenty, and even to the gals at Weight Watchers.

Speaking of Weight Watchers, I FINALLY hit my first goal!  I've lost a total of 14 pounds so far, and I'm SO proud of myself.  I still have a LONG way to go, but I'm on the right path, and I'm really, really happy with the results so far.  I think if I kick up my exercising (since right now I'm doing NONE) that it will really help.  But, trying to find the time to exercise when it's so bloody hot, and with a 5 month old that doesn't want to nap, is a bit tough.  But, I'll get there eventually.  Once it cools down some, I take take Ava with me in the stroller for a walk.

It's been nice having a break from school this week.  Although, I'm really NOT looking forward to these next classes.  Math has never been one of my strong suits, and so I'm really not looking forward to this math class that I have to take. :(  But, it's the only one, and it's only 8 weeks long, so I can make it, right?? I certainly hope so!

Those of you that are on Facebook have already seen this pic, but this is one of the newer pics of Ms. Ava.....She is SUCH a ham....and she's a VERY happy baby, and I am SO blessed to be her mommy!  I can't imagine my life without her now that she's here.  She's growing way too fast for my liking, and before I know it she's going to be walking and talking and dating and getting

I suppose this is all for now....I need to get dinner started, and I'm watching my nephew until my brother and sister in law get here to pick him up.

Stay safe and be blessed my friends, until we meet again.


  1. She looks more like Joe in that picture...but she's cuter. :P

    Anyway, just letting you know that I'm ok-ish. I can't even begin to explain what's going on, and my phone is all wonky and I can't access fb or twitter, either by phone or by computer - only can fb through texts right now. I think I'm going to have to go into the Verizon store tomorrow and see if they can fix it.

    I think the major crisis has been averted - for now. But still waters run deep...

    Love you.

  2. She does look like him doesn't she? It's so funny...sometimes when I look at her, it's like staring right at him. <3

    I'm glad you are ok-ish. Know that you can call me when ever you need to. My hours are all screwed up, with Ava's wake/sleep schedule, so...if I don't answer when you call, I'll get back to you ASAP.

    Sending you lots of love across the miles!
