The end June your here already

So the summer feels like it is just flying by!

I can't believe it is Wednesday June 30th already!

So I had a productive first half of the week. I started a facebook page for one of my direct sales business and I booked a show in September for the same business! I had taken a break from this business for a few months so I can get my health on track. Which I have plan for my health and it is in play. So I am getting back into having show/parties for my jewelry business!!! I have missed doing this so much. I love giving the gift of free jewelry and a fun night out to women!!!I am hoping to get about 3-4 shows/parties a month. I have been busy making a list of who to call and of events coming up in the area where I can meet new people and potential hostesses.

This rebirth of my jewelry business also comes at the perfect time. The first day of the new fiscal year is tomorrow and I want to set and keep my goal for this sales year. Tomorrow I will sit down and make my goals for quarter one. I feel that breaking the year down in quarters will help me stay focused and not feel overwhelmed by the bigger picture.

I am also excited that the company I sell greeting cards for has launched a new product and once I get money saved up I am going to get the new product and I am going to be able to sell cards retail for $2.99(postage included). I am looking forward to learning all about this new product and I hope people will see what an awesome company and product they have!

Well I am going to spend the last half of this week at beach! We like to get in and out of the beach area before the crowds start to race in for the big holiday weekend!

Thanks for reading and have a great 4th of July weekend!

Social Anxiety

This week I signed Ty up for VBS(vacation bible school) at one of the local Churches. I have big plans to paint, work out and plan my Sterling Vault sale coming(as soon as I plan it).

Ty did great the first two days walked right in and came out those days talking about how much fun he had.

Well today he was a little teary when I was dropping him off. I told him I would be back at noon and that after I picked him we were going to go swimming. He said okay mommy. I leave head to the gym. I get on the bike for 15 mins and then headed for Body Pump. So as I setting for BP my cell phone rings and it the VBS. Ty wants to talk to me. He says he misses me and whats me to get him. I put my stuff away and go and get him. He was fine when I got there so I think I am going to try again tomorrow.

I have been trying to get him out of his social anxiety. When he first started going to preschool he would cry and cry. Then he started getting sick when we walked into the classroom. This whole thing stresses me out because I want him to have fun and enjoy the fun he can having at school or at VBS. I also have a lot of work planned to get done during these weeks of camp. Like setting up extra help for me with dad when he gets back. Working on getting a better grip on working my two businesses and the balance of keeping up the house.

SO I am going to try again tomorrow and I am going to send to the other camps I have planned for him this summer and pray it helps him get over this social anxiety.

Another month has gone by

Wow I can't believe another month has gone by and I have been a bad blogger.

So what has been going on the last month.

I was busy the last part of May packing up the whole family for our first international trip. That's right the whole family. We took dad over to Ireland to spend the summer with his brother.

So lots of calls to airline to make sure things were set up my dad. Since he can't walk we had to make special arrangements to get him on and off the plane. It was much easier then I thought it would be and we had tons of help getting on and off the plane and getting around the airport and customs.

Once on the ground in Dublin and got all our bags(just under 10 bags; carry ons included) we met my uncle and cousin at the airport and started our 4 hour drive to Killybegs(the town my dad is from). We stopped had lunch at the halfway point and then piled back in the car for the last leg of our journey.

Finally we arrived at my uncles and greeting the rest of his family. I went and took a nap after being up over 30+ hours this mama needed to see the back of her eyelids. The nap was refreshing and then we started to settle in for our 8 days visit.

There was a revolving door of family coming and going to visit with us and dad. We also took some day trips to different tourist sites around the area. All and all it was great spending some time with the family those 8 days.

Then we were off to Dublin for 2 days. We tour Dublin by city bus and stopped at the Zoo and Guinness for a drink for mom and dad!

We are looking forward to our next trip to Ireland!
