About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Sorry I've been missing in action.  I just didn't have anything too exciting to write about.

I signed up with Mary Kay.
Here I am with my friend, Shelly who did a facial on me, and the director, Trish.  All I can think is how short and fat I am!...LOL
It was a fun meeting and I learned allot as Shelly and I observed the other directors doing  facials on their invited clients.  We then had salad and bread sticks for lunch.  We had a nice ride home, and I got to know Shelly a little bit more.

Now the dilemma!  I am regretting my decision to sign up with Mary Kay.  I cannot afford the inventory and do not want to charge it or take out a loan.  I want to pay off the debt I have.  I don't know when I'll have time to do a facial, let alone have a party!  So, I guess I'll use the products and try and sell what I have in stock with my kit.

Work has been going better since I wrote my supervisor a letter saying that I am prone to depression and cannot help crying when I am reprimanded.  (that is just the way I am).  I said I then get more nervous and make even more mistakes and worried about when the other shoe will fall.

Nothing else new...just enjoy visiting your blogs.

thats a good idea to try to sell the stock you have in your kit. Good Luck with your decision.

I think that is smart to just try to sell your stock. My daughter got roped into doing that, too, and never worked the business at all...and lost all her money.

Glad you got a letter off to your boss...maybe it will help. xo Diana

ps. I think you look very nice!

Sounds like a good plan! It's easy to get caught up in the excitement.
