Happy Memorial day!

Well The part time waitress job is going great.Being a holiday weekend of course has made us very busy.If you look at my back side I am sure you will see the big shoe print,because I got my ass kicked yesterday LOL. I only have two more days to go then I will get a day off. I hope I make it.When I was twenty years younger this kind of work was a piece of cake,it is a lot more challenging then I remembered.Anyways I have still been spending 4-6 hours on editing items in my jewelry shops.I have been working with the jewelry pricing formula and I am making adjustments.In a couple of weeks I will be adding new pictures to my shops I am so excited about this I can't wait to get all the pictures done.They will make my shops have a cleaner look.I hope you all have a great Memorial day today.I am so thankful to all of our hero's and heroins who have served our great country.THANK YOU! Without all of their sacrifices we wouldn't have such a great place to raise our children. 8)

When your Best Isn't good Enough Try Harder LOL

Yes ,when your best isn't good enough try harder.Those are the words I live by,because I don't give up!With the economy being such as it is,Sales are hard to come by everywhere.I have been very fortunate,I am very thankful for what I have had.However I am gonna have to take a job.It turns out it is not enough just to work,I actually need to get paid.LOL So I spent all morning filling out applications.I am going for waitress I have a lot of experience and cash flow usually comes quick with these types of jobs.Generally you don't work more than six hours so I can still keep up with all the other stuff I have going on.In the past I was always able to get a job the very first day hunting.Today though was different.It was kind of depressing I filled out six apps. and nothing sounded promising.I guess I will wait a couple of days to follow up.I am gonna work on pictures now I am trying some new stuff well I took one test picture I liked I am not sure If I will use it for my shops,It will kind of depend on what the comments are so please share your thoughts with me .What picture do you like best?

Women Over Fourty 8)

This is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 40: 60 Minutes Correspondent Andy Rooney (CBS) As I grow in age, I value women over 40 most of all. Here are just a few reasons why: A woman over 40 will never wake you in the middle of the night and ask, 'What are you thinking?' She doesn't care what you think. If a woman over 40 doesn't want to watch the game, she doesn't sit around whining about it. She does something she wants to do, and it's usually more interesting. Women over 40 are dignified. They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant. Of course, if you deserve it, they won't hesitate to shoot you if they think they can get away with it. Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved. They know what it's like to be unappreciated. Women get psychic as they age. You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 40. Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 40 is far sexier than her younger counterpart. Older women are forthright and honest. They'll tell you right off if you are a jerk, if you are acting like one. You don't ever have to wonder where you stand with her. Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, 'Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free? here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage! Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

My Favorite Words Of Wisdom and Inspiration8)

You must live for another if you wish to live for yourself. ~ Seneca

One day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, 'How was the trip?'

'It was great, Dad.'

'Did you see how poor people live?' the father asked.

'Oh yeah,' said the son.

'So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?' asked the father.

The son answered:

'I saw that we have one dog and they had four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.'

The boy's father was speechless.

Then his son added, 'Thanks Dad for showing me how poor we are.'

Isn't perspective a wonderful thing? Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for everything we have, instead of worrying about what we don't have.

Appreciate every single thing you have, especially your friends!

Pass this on to friends and acquaintances and help them refresh their perspective and appreciation.

'Life is too short and friends are too few.'

I love this!

I love this!
What make's you smile?

Smile it makes you look younger ! ;)
