On the Road Again

Well, this weekend it's time to hit the road again in the name of Arbonne. This little excursion should be nice since we haven't been to Florida in over a year and a half. This trip will accomplish a couple of things, first I'm doing 4 shows while we're there and second I'll get to see friends and family that I haven't seen in a while.

My first show is at Tracy's house. Tracy is my best friend from first grade! I was figuring it out the other day and we've been friends for 26 years! It's amazing, no? I'll get to see her kids, she'll get to see mine and we'll talk about the days when we were hooligans; we really were. Then we'll talk about husbands and all things girlie, it should be lots of fun.

My second and third shows are at my sister-in-law's homes- Wendy, then Angie. I'm sure their only doing this because we're related but it will be lots of fun anyway.

My last show is at my Mother-In-Law's house and I'm sure it will be great. She is very much into health as well so we'll have a good time.

In between I'll be squeezing in visits with the grandparents and aunts and uncles. I'm expecting this to be somewhat stressful but I'm going to do my best. And I'm going to spend 3 extra days there just so we can go to the beach, hang out at the pool, and go shopping. Basically so we can do all things Florida. I'd like to visit Disney Village again, but Orlando is way out of the way. I may have to save that for July.

Speaking of July:

I told a few of you about the condo owner wiping out our bank account. Well, we got it straightened out but since we asked her to pay the NSF fees (since she caused them) she said that was fine, but she'd cancel our reservation (how's that for customer service!). Anyway, it's ok because we'll probably go back to central FL and visit with family again but this time with Trav so he can see his family as well.

I'm not looking forward to the car trips there and back. I haven't made this long of a car trip by myself since I was in college. Actually, it was Amanda and me. It never seemed stressful because she was 6 or 7 and could do everything for herself and it was nice to have the company. But now I have 3 and I'm nursing one of them so I hope this goes well.

I'm Done

K- I have successfully put most of the pics from our first Tennessee trip on my blog. I realize that I could e-mail them to people but that would take more time. I guess if somebody really wanted me to, I could e-mail them.

Well, last weekend was such a surprising treat. It was such a short trip that I was expecting it to be harried and that I would be frazzled but it wasn't at all. Trav and I had a chance to reconnect and spend some time with really good friends as well. The trip back was much better weather wise than the weekend before and overall I think we just felt refreshed.

On Sunday we went to church with Eric and Tisra and had a chance to talk to their pastor about being affiliated with the Four Square Gospel denomination (that is who thier church is affilliated with) and he was very helpful. In fact, Dad called the contact that he gave me today and things look very positive so far.

We are set to start services here in May and we are all looking forward to that. We're going to start as a prayer meeting during the week first and then start having services later.

My first Arbonne class at Mary's house went well and I'm having one at Mom's house next Friday. Christina is coming - arbonne sponsors typically do your first 3 shows to train you- and she's bringing Stephanie. Stephanie is a licensed massage therapist and Arbonne consultant so she'll be doing foot massages at my party. Unfortunately I can't take her to Florida with me which is where I'll be the next week.

It's nice to have a few kid free minutes, but my time is up...

Curse and Swear @#$%!@##@$#

Can you tell I'm having trouble with this program. These aren't the pics I want on here. There are cute ones of Grant, Dean, Chloe, Lael, Amanda, and Halle. I just can't get them on here and I'm giving up now because I have other things to do.
