Working from home?

As a mom of two girls that are still in school, I have been thinking about a job working from home. Problem is…..there is so much spam out there who knows what really works. I have tried a few, and found that even though I loved the product, I didn’t have time to do parties. My kids play sports so my weeknights and weekends are limited. So what to do? I see jobs for surveys, but lets be realistic….how much can you really make? I don’t have time to do a million surveys just to make ten dollars. I have also seen ads for data entry. That would be great except…I don’t type that fast lol. So what’s left? Not much. Well crafts to sell on etsy. However, most people are all doing the same crafts. How about blogging? Well I love to spill my guts about stuff I know….But how do you make money blogging? I have decided to figure this out and post what I have learned for all those out there that need(as I call it) the simple breakdown. I am not a genius, just a mom who loves her girls. I don’t have tons of time. So I shall be back once this mom can figure it out lol.

20140129-070051.jpgI love when my kids draw and make me beautiful pictures! We hang them up and then at some point take them down and put them in a folder. We don’t think much about them again until later. My niece was killed when she was 13. She was two months shy of her 14th birthday. After all of it happened, I realized how important the little things are…, drawings, hugs and kisses. We take for granted the every day, the little things…..We say not now honey, let me finish this….And that quickly we turn around and realize that our children are grown. We miss the chattering, the laughing, rocking them to sleep. I guess my point is, enjoy now not later. Because later….may be too late.

Beginning again…..

Well after a year, I am finally divorced. Now it’s time to start over. I thought I would be afraid or sad, but I’m not. What I am is excited! Why? Well now it is my time to relearn who I am. Yes relearn about me. I am ready to start over and try new things! I feel free to do whatever I want and not have to worry what my anyone thinks. We moved into a new place and my daughters and I are adjusting well. it was hard at first, but now they love the idea of starting fresh. They are playing sports and doing great in school. I want to encourage them to go after their dreams. Before, well let’s just say there was more stress that dream following………So as this year goes on, you will see posts of things we have done, places we have visited, and stuff we love. so come back and join us on our adventure!!!
