2010 is almost over I hope everyone made it though with as little bumps as you could.  I feel good about the year that is almost out of here and feel real good about 2011..... This is going to be the year that I get lots of customers and lots of people that want to make some extra money.  My goal for this next year is to not have to go back to work part time and by the end of the year Marvin no longer having to go to work.  To do this I will need to be making 3,500 every month which isn't that much and I know I can do it. 
I am going out of town this next week and I plan on talking to lots of people and getting several people to the meeting in Dallas on the 22 and at the KC training Feb 12.  I will be running an ad the last of the month and plan to get alot of new customers. 
I am looking forward to spending a week with Shelly and Devlin going to see Melissa wednesday or thursday and then after my week with Shelly going to spend some time with my sister for a couple of days would like to have more but I know we will get some good time in the 2 1/2 days.... need to find out when Cindy gets off work on that Sunday so I can be at her house when she is at home.  Then I get a couple of days with her.  Then off to Arkansas to see my son.... 1 or 2 days with him and back home.  I will miss Marvin and I know he will miss me he has gotten use to me being at home every night and having dinner cooked and he will have to fix dinner his self which he is able to do but will miss me.  The bed is also empty without each other.  But I am looking forward to these next 3 weeks.  Taking my product stock and my skin care stuff if I get people wanting to try the skin care products.... taking my body scan so I can give people there scans.... I plan on saling stuff when I am gone to pay my way......

I wish everyone a Happy New Year and you can Reach your Goals this year if you would like me to let you know how I am living my DREAM give me a call.....

Happy New Year

Dec. 5th (I think)

Christmas time this is the time that everyone loves it is a time where families get together have a good time and this is also the time that people worry about buying the right gift... but I want to tell you this year is the first one I remember that I don't feel stress... it could be because when I stress my mouth hurts and I don't want that... It could be because I had the money to buy my kids a present and Shelly, Devlin, Robert, Makaila is coming this next weekend...and sent be able to pay my bills.  If you have not learned yet it is always a must to pay the bills every month because if you don't you will not be able to pay them ever.....
this is from some one that has been paying bills and trying to make ends meet since I was 17 I'm 53 now so there you go.  Now I am the first to tell you I am in Debit with Credit Cards and I have had Robert that helped me for the 1st 28 years and now I have Marvin that is helping the rest of the way.  But I have learned my lesson it is so easy to get in debit and I have a big problem with credit cards... that is why I love the debit cards and no OD coverage on my checking acct....  if  I can not pay my bills and keep food in the house then I don't spend money...
that has taken me a while to do this but then I have now and I am so Happy because going back to the reason I started this.....
Christmas time is great I bought a monopoly game and Marvin and I have play twice and I love it..... I have spent the same amount of money on everyone and that makes me happy and I feel good.  I am looking forward to spending time with my kids... It has been a long time it seems.....
I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas Season I am when people say they are not in the Christmas Sprit what does that mean and I have been there to I feel Happier at this time of year... Marvin gets down because of the cold...I love these Christmas shows that make you cry with saddness and happiness....ok like you can see it is Sunday where I am by myself before work and my mind is going in so many directions I need to get up and drink my NRG that will help my mind from going in so many directions and I can get things done....after I stop crying over this christmas show...  so I better get off this blog and get to busy before I have to get to the hotel.....

I only did 822 steps as I made my Lemon Cheesecake shake that is my new favorite flavor... so that was only 22..3 calories but that isn't bad since I just got up and got my heart pumping after my shower and now I get to drink my shake.... what at start of a great day.

But looking at this 822 steps and you are suppose to walk 10,000 a day I bet walk while I drink my shake
Ok after my shakes I burned another 53.1 calories and did another 1887 steps not bad but better then yesterday

Veterans Day

This is the day where everyone is suppose to thank the service men and women but I say why just one day everytime you see a vet you need to thank him or her and their family for their service. 
Just  saw people complaining because the presendents were not at the place they thought they should be on Veterans day but what I want to know is what they did for the Vet's today?  It helps with me working at a Hotel but there is not a day that goes by when I meet a vet that they don't hear me thanking them for their service.  What is it with people pointing out everything that is wrong with a person and you don't hear much of the good things people do.  I am not saying I'm not as bad at this as anyone else because I am but I think we all need to try harder to see the good in people everyday.... No One is perfect the only one I know that is, is GOD. 

Tomorrow is Friday and it is the last day of the week for alot of people, some it is the beginning of the week... but it is funny to me how people look forward all week long for their Friday... what is up with the rest of week?  Don't wait to enjoy tomorrow for tomorrow never comes..... If you choose to make each day the best day ever you might just start enjoying everyday that you wake up and are able to get up out of your bed and be able to go to work......

When was the last time you stopped - look and listen how the season change...... if you haven't then I want you to

It just take a second....

watch the leaves fall... the wind blow (is the wind caused by the temp change of the earth)
watch the squirrals gather that food......

to the noise of the things that you see

deep breath and think of all the things you have to be thankful for and then focus

So I need to go to the casket shop in Wichita and order my urn....
Marvin works hard and I am going to love the time when I can get him to be able to wake up when he is done sleeping all the time.  This is the nicest thing to do and I wish this for everyone.....
November I love this month since this is the month of my hubby's bithday, but this is also the month it starts getting colder.  But maybe it will help since I will be home to keep the house warm for us.  This is the time of Year I have to work twice as hard to make life good since it is cold out Marvin has trouble with enjoying life..he just doesn't like to be cold... well I need to take down my Halloween decrotion out side since neighbor is shooting a gun the little spook I have is non stop talking......

I am Thankful that I woke up after I was done sleeping... have you ever got to do that? maybe like a day off that you have nothing to do well I know that you will choose to do this soon.  It is a wonderful feeling to be working from Home... I woke up at 7:30 and the laundry is almost done the carpet is swept.  Now I am listen to Micheal Katz Pres Team and he is telling me all I have to do is listen to people, if someone is talking about being upset about their JOB ask them if they own the business and when they say NO say Bummer!!!! give them the card and then teach simple is this just talk to people now I am so good at talking look at my blogs I can ramble about anything.... but I am still working on LISTENING....

It was good but I have missed my shake this morning. that is so funny I weighed this morning and I am to 175 which is great  I still have love handles so advise for you people that don't have those....DO NOT LET ANY ONE start those love handles...what the heck why are they called that I am NOT in Love with these and never have been I am happy with my hips and thighs now my arms are getting less flabby (well as long as I don't look at them in the mirror's on motorcycle) but these so called love handles I am tired of back wrinkles!!!!!  And I DO NOT THAT!!!! (hope that postive thinking works)

I am ready for these 4 days but I don't feel that I am over excieted well maybe since I am already packed but I think you all know why I do that I added 2 more shirts today well probably don't need them but might... I am taking relaxing clothes since we sit most of the time I bought new show which I need to put on hold on....

Tuesday, October 19, 2010


Sometimes Life stinks...ok this is a site for me to ramble so here it goes.....I am going to CA with Robert for an Herbalife meeting... Cindy lives in Mounds and we are flying out of Tulsa and so I was thinking if Marvin would get Thursday, friday and sunday off he could drive us to the airport and then drive to Mounds spend some time to hisself and visit with Cindy.... Cindy is for it but Marvin has said no and I know it is his time but he always puts money out there.... Is he that worried about money since I have moved the shop  back home... he is always telling me that he can always get time off.  I wanted to do it different I wanted to talk to Cindy first and see if she had stuff around that he could do since Cindy didn't call until he was here and I had all ready mentioned it to him and then I think he got upset since I had talked to her before him.. it is all right it would be better if we had planned it I just didn't think about it until sunday.  On the call when I knew it wasn't going to go my jaw started hurting and got me so bad it made me cry. I hate that this happened when Marvin was here it has done it one morning and it is not good but what it is the most is stress and life so I am trying to get the stress under control but I can only live life and sometimes it gets hard.  But I have learned to live everyday to the fullest I have learned that I have borrowed this life and I thank GOD for letting me abuse this body and be able to hold my babies and my grandbabies and so many others.  The men I have Loved the man I Love Now... I would not change anything about my life, I had to live everything I did to be in the spot I am in now. And I Love my Life I have the Best Kids, Grandkids, Family that I have ever Dreamed to have........
Ok this sounds like I am thinking about dieing and that is Far from the truth so lets change our thinking.  What a day it is Tuesday and just 2 more days and I am off, I don't know if I will be able to write on this while I'm gone but I will try and I will be on for sure when I get back to tell everyone what is up....

Sunday, October 17, 2010


Why do some of us have Stress.... everyone has stress there is times people tell me not to be so stressed and I don't even feel stress but with myTN I now know when I'm stressed... It seems to hurt more but there is times it hurts and I don't feel like I am stressed.... so I breath and focus and everything is all right.....

How do you handle your stress?  I don't think I am as stressed as some may think I am I don't like to be late to anything and I get excieted if it looks like I am going to be late.... some think that is stressed and it probalby is but I don't feel like it is...
Ok now I'm stessing myself out because I'm repeating myself.... lol I couldn't help that ok I warned you about my thoughts that I put on this....

Talk more later
Have a great day


Ok check out I did some word changes let me know what you think....

Then I did general cleaning which I do everyday who doesn't.... that burned 180 calories I think it is so neat how if we stop and think about it how we burn calories that we eat every day even if you just stand all day at a job... did you know that people who stand at their job all day burn more calories a day then those the sit all day..... that is why I'm watching my butt...

Open House

Today was the open house and it was so good.... didn't have any one come by except Gena and Hunter but I went out and sit on the porch with Marvin at the table every time he came up to rest from working in the yard.. It was nice to sit with him and watch the birds, squirrals and we even saw a deer.  Most the time on saturday Marvin works outside and I sit in here on the computer watching tv but I made sure I went out and sit with him all day....  I was hopeing that more would come but I guess they all had something to do..... Well I had a gift bag and I guess Hunter won it.... which is good since he was wanting it so bad.... well I am going to end this for now more later.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

I Hope that no one that is reading this knows what this word is.  but if you do I'm sorry but I too have TN and I would like to share my story.  When I went to Dallas Texas by myself to a Dana Johnson senimar is when I first found out what TN was.

You need to google it if you find out about it. I Did!  Ok the start of the story:

It was January and My Left Side of my Face and Jaw started hurting, first I thought it was my teeth, No Densist says no.  Doc told me it was teeth... So I Googled... and found out that the Sharp Shocking feeling that I had in my top Jaw and Bottom Jaw at the same time was Trigeminal Neuralgia which I can not say so I tell everyone it is TN which they all say TM and no totaly different... Anyway this got to where I had trouble eating, drinking, brushing teeth, and Talking, and yes not being able to Talk with out pain is hard for me but Once I suffered with the pain I could start talking with no problem...  The way I desribe the pain is getting electric shock.

Now this 1st time that I had TN it lasted 6 months and then it goes away as fast as it started....

Then the 2nd time I had TN it lasted about 3 months......

While this 3rd time I got TN is the time that I really want to blog about

On Aug 13 I knew I had Started with the TN again, so I emailed Dr. Luigig and found out what I needed to make sure I took to help

On Aug 16 I started the Niteworks -1 time at night time

On Aug 25 I started the Herbalifeline and Tri Shield and kept drinking the Niteworks

On thing about TN that is good and bad, is that it doesn't hurt while you sleep but when you get up in the morning it is like I have stuck my Nerve in a breaker box. 

So in Sept. 4th when I woke up that morning I did not have the electric shock, now I still have had a little pain but nothing like it usually has been...

So the 3rd time of having TN and getting on some target products from Herbalife I can say that in 23 days I believe that my TN is on the way out if not completely.

Ok Sorry this is so long but I needed to tell this story...


I Hope everyone had a good Labor Day Weekend.  Mine was great didn't do anything which was great.  This morning back to work, I started with drinking my shake out on my front porch.  Wow the flies know it is going to rain today they are thick here on the porch.  I am still sitting out here on the porch enjoying the weather.  I would like to Thank my Daughter Shelly for sitting up this blog for me she is great. 
So now if anyone wants to read my rambles they can come here instead of getting emails from me all the time.  Well I already had one of my customers call and set up a time to come tomorrow and buy some tea which is a good thing.  Marvin is still worried no one will come to the house and will stop buying but knowing how everyone loves these products I know that won't happen. 
Well I just wanted to test this and see if it works.....
More later
