idea for now

So, I was talking to a friend about my job and I should write a book about the years that I was a product demonstrator. I am so glad to have moved on from that job, it was fun the first 7 seven years, but the last 6 were painful and mundane! So, this idea popped into my head that I would share some of the weirdest things people either asked or said to me during those 13 years. So here we go:
1. What is it? Probably the number one question, but the problem was that it was pizza, REALLY, that's what you want to ask me??  Probably they wanted to know who's brand, so say that please, otherwise you sound really stupid!! Just sayin!
2. How long has this been out, is it fresh today?? Again, REALLY, How can frozen pizza be fresh??  Also, did you not just see me take this out of the oven?? Again, stupid!
3. After eating one piece of pizza, taking another, actually sneaking another piece, WE SEE YOU!! We see you sneaking another piece or 4, yes , on time a lady told me she was taking 8 pieces for her children, let me tell you, if she had children in the car, they would be 40 years old or older. Please don't lie or try to trick us!
4. This is a snack, not a meal, please don't stand here and eat the whole tray! It goes along with number 3
5. Please no double dipping, when we have chips or carrot sticks out with dip! Had to put up a sign every time to remind people, this isn't home, don't double dip! Again, REALLY!!!????
6. Please don't litter the store with the empty napkin or portion cup that held a carrot and dip. This isn't home and you need to clean up after yourself!
7. It's a sample, not a meal, move along!
8. Just quite saying stupid things to the demo person! Don't act like a jackass! Nobody likes it!
This is a small list of the stupid things people say to us! We are just people trying to make a living and have a little fun while doing it!

I totally did bad on the 21 day Bible challenge, though I did love reading the Word, I didn't do it first thing in the morning before I turned on my phone! I'm reading 1Samuel now.
Lady has really grown a lot in the last month, she gets spayed next week. We have been going to obedience classes with her on Sundays. So far so good!
Winter is just clinging on with below zero temps! Enough already!! Spring needs to come fast and soon!! What a goof!!

The Challenge continues

So, it's day 3 for me in this challenge because I started late. Anyway, it's a real struggle to read the Word before looking at my phone, just is such a habit! Working through it and keep reading the Word even if it's not the first thing. I chose the book of Daniel to read this time. Taking my time in reading it. God called Daniel to obedience and his friends, put no other God before God and not to worship/ partake in idol worship in this strange land. What would you do, comply and go along or be a rebel and ask God for His protection?? I hope I would see the bigger picture and ask for God's help and go against the grain! Blessings! Puppy photos! Lady grabbed that grocery bag because it makes a noise! Goofy puppy!!

21 day challenge

So, I signed up for this 21 day challenge of reading the Word of God before looking at my phone, FAILED already!!! Forgot I signed up and my phone was in my hand for about 20 minutes this morning and thought "oh . man I really goofed up"!! Grateful that God is forgiving and lets us have a do over!
 Here are some puppy photos from the last week! Lady is a goof!!

More in the life of everyday

So, this is an update. I have already spent $94.83 on groceries, I have $168 left for the month, see if I run over or make it! I spent the majority for 2 main meals, but I will have at least 4 days worth of meals. I found a website and the 2 recipes that I spent the $34 on are for chicken enchilada chili and pasta salad using ravioli 4 cheese, this will be my lunch for a few days. The website is chelseasmessyapron,com, she has some really interesting and easy recipes!
Update on my left leg and back, I plan on getting a shot in my back on the 17th of this month. I also intend to get another opinion of my back and if there is a remote possibility of help for it. Something beyond PT. My leg feels like shin splints 24/7, the pain is enormous! I feel like crying most days and just suck it up! Having the puppy is hard, as I can't keep up with her and she needs to be on a leash now, it's hard most days! Blessings!

New Year, New Look

So, the new year is here and I'm hoping to be better in keeping this blog updated. So wish me luck. I intend to set some goals and please keep me accountable!
1. For the next 30 days to keep a ledger of what I spent on groceries, so that I can budget better the rest of the year! So, I gave myself a $250.00 allowance for January to spend on groceries. I need to realize that toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies are not in that budget, as I have for years clumped everything together. So this is a lesson in separating my budget.
2. Resting better, I sleep like crap! I have for many years and I think that is part of my weight problem. So this is the year to get more than 5-6 hours a night!
3. See another back doctor for a second opinion on my back and how to help it!
4. Dote on Gordon more than before, the kids say he's spoiled, but that is my doing and I plan to spoil him more, he's 71 and time is precious!
5. Join a girls Bible study! Hopefully I will find one soon!
So there's a few goals and that's not all, but it's a good start!
I hope to do something very special for someone, just waiting on the Lord for guidance! 
Lady at 12 weeks! She's a fun puppy, getting into trouble and licking us a lot! Puppy kisses are the best!
