Holla!!!!!!!!!! How's everyone?
I'm fine. Things here at work are busy so I didn't get to post yesterday.
My weekend went really well.
Friday night, my husband went to spend time with his parents while I did the scrapbook thing at my house. We had so much fun! Tucker and Liza (my new sitter) sat at a table and did foam animal masks and magnets. He really enjoyed that and us old people sat at the table and scrapped. The CM consultant that was there is already saying... I should deactivate and sign up to sell this stuff (yeah). She already has everything CM and wants some new stuff and really loved the stamps and stamping and the quality of CTMH products. How impressed with me would the company be to not even have my first party and already have a downline? Hehe!
And CTMH quotas are less. (hint hint Kris). hahahahaha!
So, all went well and my husband relaxed over the house and realized he was having an OCD moment and all was peaceful! Praise God!
Saturday we went to the grocery together. My back has really been hurting and so I need Tim's help. I can't push the cart when my back hurts this bad. I'm doing good to walk. But I am starting to feel better.
Sunday was church, then Burger King (Tucker earned it) then play practice at church, then home to fold laundry and then bath time and bed time! Desperate housewives was a re-run so I didn't have to stay up to watch it! It's about the only show I watch on TV, that and Ellen.
Last night, Tucker and I played together and we each curled up in his bed under a blanket and each read books (me my CTMH manual) and he read little books that he's learned to read. It's so awesome to see your child sit there and sound out words and read a book. My heart was melting! The TV never even got turned on last night. I love those nights! We've had several of them lately.
OH! I did weigh myself yesterday, I figured it's Monday, it's raining I might as well be totally depressed... well... I lost 5 lbs!!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! I was totally excited! So I was in a good mood all day.
That good mood wore me out though, we went to be at 8:00!!!!!!! Yep 8pm! Tucker and I were in our beds and on our way to lala land! And I still didn't want to get up this morning...weird!
Not sure why I am so drained.
Well, it's Tuesday 1 down 4 to go!
My upline Carolyn is coming over to go over some of my questions and sort through stuff with me. I am so excited to get this show on the road... I'm ready to start selling!
I'll share something else with ya'. God has really been talking to me lately. It's awesome and it fills me with great joy but when it's about yourself and things that you need to change it sure is hard to hear but God has a way of preparing your heart for it first. It's something I can't explain. (except to say it's a God thing).
There are as you all know, marriage issues but Sunday at church, He just gave me such a peace about it all, told me what to change (attitude) and how to handle conflict, He asked me, is proving my point to my husband about the cross? Is yelling at my husband about the cross? No its not and everything I do should be about the cross. It should be for the Lord. He's truly blessing me with friends (which I was in desperate need of) and things to occupy my time so I won't be lonely when my husband is at work, and now this CTMH opportunity, he's changed my personality and changed me into the old Holli, the fun Holli. The happy, bubbly, outgoing me.
He has dealt (and is dealing) with my anxiety and social issues. He's so good and is so awesome!
And I am so glad that I am hearing Him and being obedient to Him! I just want to do His will and He totally gave me peace about my marriage, about my family and about our future and He is so good!
Well, I'll end this post on that! PRAISE THE LORD FOR HIS GLORY!!
Col 3:17 - look it up!

I am so happy for you! And I do think that you are talking about the same church, because Sat. I heard them talking about a Close to My Heart consultant coming! That is sooooo awesome. Depending on when my business trips are scheduled, I may see you there. It just depends on when we end up having to go. I may miss the shower, too. ;( We'll see. I will regret that part of it.

I am so thrilled to hear of your joy! Rejoice with those who rejoice, and mourn with those who mourn. I am rejoicing with you right now in a big way, sis.

Plus the sun is shining!

Yay!

P.S. Did you say your first party is on April 7th? Am I getting an invitation? Hint hint hint. If I can't come, (because of the trip) I at least want a catalog! Okay?

Hugs!
