I 'm going back to school

      I didn't want to speak to soon and jinx the most exciting thing that has happened to me in a very long time. That is why I didn't share this sooner. I enrolled at the University Of Phoenix . Now It's not that I don't feel challenged enough already trying to raise my two teenage daughters. And yes, karate is very challenging also.  I have come to a point where I needed to learn more about search engine optimization, e-marketing, marketing in general , writing, and well you get the idea. In order to keep up with the ups and downs of this economy I realized I have to learn a few things. So I did a little research then I decided The University Of Phoenix had a perfect marketing program for me, so I contacted them. If you have been considering furthering your education may I humbly suggest you contact  Lew Sykes a student adviser ,he certainly made my decision easy. I gave him a link to my Etsy Shop and he helped guide me to the perfect program for me. May I add it has been a while since I have been in school. He scheduled me for 4 weeks of work shops to prepare me and guess what? I Loved them! Yes ,not only did I learn something from them but I had fun in the process.Now that I have the workshops behind me ,I am confident I am ready to start the first two courses on Monday. I will be earning an Associates degree in business and entrepreneurship first. And hopefully I will then go on to my Bachelors. I am so excited! If you are interested in furthering your education but aren't sure where to start please contact the University Of Phoenix ecampus.phoenix.edu/ and see what they have to offer you. Never stop learning ! When you speak to Lew please tell him Tam sent you!

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!
