Looking for a heartbeat

In addition to starting with Arbonne I have started a foundation to donate AEDs to public places in my hometown and thereabouts. You can donate here  http://www.gofundme.com/8z3br3btes.

Money can't buy everything, it's true, what it don't get, I can't use.

That's not completely true... but I'm still thinking about it.  Money is on my mind.  I'm hiring.  What?  Seriously, I'm an Arbonne International Independent Consultant, and I'm looking for copycats who want to make money.  LOL Is it fast money?  It hasn't been in my case.  But I'm in this for the long haul, and August is going to be a great month.  I'm really looking forward to recruiting some new consultants.  Arbonne is a great company.  Yes, I drink the koolaid every day!  LOL  They don't sell Kool-Aid.  What they do have is a product called Energy Fizz Sticks that come in pomegranate and citrus flavors.  I'm a big fan of them!  My website is marisabush.arbonne.com... more later...

The day Billy Joe McCalister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

It was the third of June!

See the video of "Ode to Billy Joe" here.

Anyway, it was quite a day.  I had a venous Doppler ultrasound on my leg, which swells when it wants to and hurts most of the time.  I forgot to take my morning meds so I suffered through the early afternoon, napped for a couple of hours with the cats all up in the bed with me, and then I woke up, packed the vehicle, and headed to my daughter's place so I can be closer to my jobs for a couple of days.

Lately I've been doing a lot of website work because in a few weeks the nuc tech work will dry up a little bit and I'll need more money.  Heck, I need more money now!!!  So, in the next few weeks I'm hoping you'll see a lot more activity on this blog and my others as well.  Well, maybe not the teaching blogs, but some of the others anyway.

Stay tuned...

Ice, ice, baby... Too cold, too cold

Sitting in a motel room because I'm sort of stuck in Nashville because it's icy. It's kind of nice. I've been lying around and watching a marathon of "My Big Fat Fabulous Life."  My life is boring. Lol. Not really...

Since I last posted a lot has changed. Most notably, I've changed jobs. I'm a PRN tech for Vanderbilt Heart. Hence I'm stuck in icy Nashville instead of home using snow days. I still sub sometimes, though the pay's not great, because I need extra money, but I do get paid more than I did as a full-time teacher. 

It would take all night to write about the last year. Sonny died in August.  In December we got two pound kitties, Ivy and Josie. Ivy has just started allowing us to pet her this month. Josie's not there yet.  They're cute and energetic. They're a lot of fun.

I'd like to start blogging again. I've finally got all the classes out of the way for the masters degree. I've got the credential so now I need to use it. I just have a hard time managing my time. That's one of my lent goals- I'm giving up computer games/puzzles. I'm not giving up the computer, because the time waster is Spider Solitaire and the puzzles are sort of a gateway drug. So maybe when I don't have that to eat up my night, I can do more writing. I hope so anyway.

Two can be as bad as one, it's the loneliest number since the number one...

I'd planned to use this post to document my progress on the "40 bags in 40 days" project for Lent.  You know, 40 bags of decluttering... however, I've been working a lot!  I didn't do any decluttering on Ash Wednesday because I went to Randy's mom's house for dinner, but I DID clean up Sonny's bathroom and that WAS one bag of trash.

On Day 2 of Lent I cleaned off the bathroom counter.  Photos to come later.  Three bags resulted from that - one trash bag and two smaller gift bags, one for each child.

I went back to work after all the snow on Friday, and then worked in home health Friday night.  I worked Saturday morning and evening, and in between I went to Nashville and took back the rental car and finally got my car back, went to eat with Randy, his mom, his sister and her friend, and went to the karaoke pizza place.  Today I worked in the morning, napped awhile in the afternoon, and have been lazy, watching TV and playing online since.  So I guess I'm three days behind, because I really shouldn't count all three bags from Thursday.

Well... that's all I've got to say about that, so far.  More later...
