It's been a while!
I just can't seem to make time for livejournal these days. I miss it, but not enough to sacrifice my much needed nap time, or going to bed at a decent hour routine :)

This is my 4th pregnancy, and I have come to the conclusion that I really am not a fan of the process... I'm willing to sacrifice my body & let something grow inside of me, and take from my very bones what it needs to survive, however WHY does that have to come with a punishing and fluctuating nausea that at best feels like an unsettled tummy. At worst... you don't wanna know!!

Mateo will be just turning 2 when the new baby arrives. WOW!! That's close! There were 7 years between my first sibling & I. I had to really want & wait for it, through divorce & all. I hope that Mateo & whoever is inside of me grow up to appreciate each other & respect one another.

Everyone seems to think that this is a girl. It just feels a notch or two higher on the scale of draining than Mateo was.

He's getting to be SUCH a big boy now. I just went through all his clothes again on Thursday to store what he's outgrown, and to switch it up with the "bigger boy" clothes he has. He counts to three (he just says it, but I'm not sure he understands what it represents) because we play 1, 2, 3 JUMP at the pool, and he carefully steps off the edge of the pool, already holding my hand. LOLOL I'll say ONE, and he says, DOOO, so I say TWO, and he says DEEEE and he waits for me to say THREE! before he "jumps".

He also says horsie. But it sounds more like OR-EEE. He's going to be the cutest little or-ee anyone ever saw this year for Halloween :)

The end of Mateo's teething is in sight! *I'm still getting up a min. of for times a night on average with him. I'm starting to think there are more teeth showing than gums, and the molars are almost through (which are the worst of it I would imagine).

I'm watching the scale creep in the other direction now, and it's almost amusing to me. I know I'm capable of losing it, because I really feel I did a great job in taking care of myself & getting into shape after Mateo. I'm definitely going to walk my way back into healthy & fit. I will be often eating what the kids are eating, which of course will be healthier stuff, and smaller portions. More often eating suits me just fine :) Being at home and having the luxury of being able to prepare or go out & purchase whatever strikes my fancy, I enjoy cooking healthier and delicious things. *while I'm pregnant & nauseous, I have to admit, our meals have been a little more on the bland and boring side.

My girlfriend told me about this movie the other night, and then today sent me the link... I won't watch it at night!! http://www.thefourthkind.net/

I'm off to tidy the downstairs before Mateo wakes up from his nap.

I gotta throw this in too:

*If anyone (in Canada) would like to consider part-time or full-time income as an Avon Lady I would LOVE to have some new energy on my team. I'm a Unit Leader and would love to assist you in getting your Avon business off the ground & running. Have more time for yourself and your family (not to mention fabulous discounts on your own products). I am here to answer questions you may have & help you along the way. It's $20 to become an independent Representative (no catch or obligations), and Avon is offering new Representatives $100+ in free product when you submit a 1st or 2nd order of $125 or more. That's IT! AND....... you get 40% earnings on your first two orders. Think about those earnings. Ask me about PCA (Avons special incentive for new representatives to earn an entire year of 40% commissions!!)

Who wants to make money??
I'm still needing a few more additions to my team to secure my win for the most recent Avon incentive running...

- I'd LOVE to have a few feisty women like myself who are ready to kick some butt & take some names :)

I will support & assist you along the way of getting started & in growing your business.

You WON'T regret it!

* No minimum ordering
* No door knocking required
* No cancellation or penalty fee if you decide it's not for you.
* Satisfaction Guaranteed Products
* Commissions paid on even the smallest orders
* E-brochure now available (easier to sell than ever - from your computer!)
* Internet order credits given

Does 40% commissions on your first TWO orders sound good? *or a 40% discount on your own stuff!

$20 is your only investment :) That's it!

~ I'm told that in the near future we'll be able to add US reps to our teams too, but for now... :(

The only thing better than going away for the weekend is coming home :)

Had a fabulous weekend by the pool:

So did Mateo :)

We're STILL tired actually, but there's a ton to do this week, so I'll just have to try to nap later if I can :)

Today, my to do list is as follows and in NO particular order:

  1. Clean out the fridge

  2. Grocery Shopping

  3. Unpack

  4. Return all weekend voice mails

  5. Laundry

  6. Remind everyone about Wednesdays Avon order deadline

  7. Clean the first floor windows (inside & out)

  8. Stamp 100 Avon brochures for golf tournament tomorrow

  9. Make home made soup

  10. Get organized for charity golf tournament tomorrow

  11. Pack free samples & business cards for tomorrow

  12. *and of course give a brochure to any & everyone I exchange pleasantries with today including cashiers*

My mother gave me some REALLY great stuff on Friday when I stopped in to pick up our spare playpen, including the vintage Armani jacket I've been drooling over since the day she brought it home. Knowing how much I love it, and how little she's actually worn it, SHE GAVE IT TO ME!

I shall post photos. PROMISE. Along with some other stuff too...

I've decided that Lady Avon is ALL about the Vintage. Why not, right? One more way to be extra unique & have some fun with it. Dresses, gloves, hats, etc. I'll take some photos this afternoon if I can find some time to post some of the things I've already acquired, and I'll show you my fabulous outfit for tomorrow's charity golf tournament.

If you, or anyone you know has great vintage stuff not being worn or appreciated, PLEASE! Send it my way!!!

I'm looking for everything from dresses, to suits (sizes anywhere from 8 and up - I'll have it tailored), hats, gloves, accessories, shoes (8 or 8.5), purses/bags, and of course, if you have any vintage Avon products, I've started collecting those as well!

I have already started packing my bags & choosing my outfits for the November Avon trip. 3 days expenses paid in Montreal meeting all of the people at head office who make things tick from that end of things, and getting some much deserved and appreciated spoiling & appreciation!

I will be Lady Avon the entire trip! Avon is flying me there, but I'm going to opt for a train ride instead. I've always wanted to take a train ride, and I've never been on anything but a subway or GO train. I want to have a tea, and look out the window, and gather my thoughts, and write in my blackberry, and take a nap, etc. Kinda old school, no? Would Mrs. Albee not have arrived by train? :)

Have a wonderful day my friends.... may your "to do" list be fruitful & manageable. May your energy be abundant and your week be full of wonderful surprises!

Happy Friday etc. :)
So, I just realized I can change the fonts on here so they're set to that particular font all the time?! Since when can I do that??

It's a picture posting kinda day, don't you think? At this particular moment, I'm listening to Mateo playing and chatting to himself before drifting off to sleep, and uploading photos from my phone to my computer, and then from my computer to photobucket, and then to here (and there, and a few other places I'm sure), I'm also wrapping two birthday gifts (one for my beautiful sister who's bday was on Tuesday), packing for the farm this weekend AND trying to tidy & organize my office, as it always seem to get hit by a tornado every two weeks when deliveries come LOL. Ah, the life of an Avon Lady!

I've been playing around with the website, and hopefully the changes will be made before next week. It needed some brightening.

I'm also going to make an effort to take WAY more photos! I will post them here. Mateo's growing so quickly, and life is happening faster than I remember it happening. I can better cherish the moments by documenting them & saving/sharing them with friends & family.

Speaking of....

Here's a WHACK of photos to start! *grab a drink, have a seat, get your reading glasses... it's all pretty random :)

On my way for a haircut (like my little door-knocker Avon pin??)

Nekkid bb time! (sorry Teo!)


That's all I've got for now. Must go pack & finish wrapping gifts :) More photos promised for next time.

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

Vintage Kick
I've decided to start collecting Vintage clothing & accessory pieces for Lady Avon :) I will wear them out for functions/meetings/etc.

If you, or someone you know has anything vintage in size 10-14 (will have it taken in if necessary) and it's just collecting dust, PLEASE! Let me breathe new life & pazazz into it!

Going to put a donation button on the website too, but for now:

Do any of you have a treadmill (that works) that you want to sell?

- is there a trick to budgies that I don't know?  EVERY DAY I am dust-busting up empty seed shells and blue & green feathers...  EVERY DAY....  And tell me how they get the poop OUTSIDE of the cage?  MAKE IT STOP!!!!!  (does anyone want two really cute budgies?)

- I'm thinking about using my 

princessblondie journal again instead of this one...  Would that be cool with all of you?  In place of this one, completely.  I'm feelin' a little old school comin' on.

(If you were me, and) If you could see my desk right now, you'd probably throw yourself down a set of stairs so you wouldn't have to deal with any of it. Faking an injury, or inducing self-injury & making it look like an accident is a perfectly acceptable way to get out of work.

Leaving the dark side...
Oh yes, you heard me. I am leaving the dark side, and getting rid of my stupid blackberry.

I've had SO many problems, not just with it, but more so with Bell Canada & their policies.

My phone number will stay the same, though I'm still not sure if I'm staying with Bell.

Either way, those of you who PIN me will no longer be able to do so. Effective next week some time. *so if I stop answering you, it's not because I don't love you anymore.

Current Mood: sleepy
