Got lots and lots going on. I haven't been able to post much. But listen!! You faithful readers know how I'm a Pampered Chef Pusher? Well.... GUESS WHAT!? Not only was I the top seller in our cluster for the last two months, but I actually managed to sign up TWO recruits in ONE day, which promoted me to FUTURE DIRECTOR! Yay!!!!

So I thought this would be a great time for me to tell you guys that the new March catalogs are here (with the new products!), and if anyone wants to do a catalog show..... DO IT (with me of course) !! I've actually done a show for a fellow blogateer, so if you need references that I'm actually a real person who won't shaft ya - let me know!

Ok. Enough sales pitches.

I've been informed that my official last day of work will be June 1st. So, if I have a job or not, if my house has sold or not... I'm out of a job.


That's freaking scary. I'm starting to panic, because I've not had many nibbles on my resume. So I'm not too sure what my next course of action should be (other than sucking down another beer of course).

But the plan so far is to formally list the house with a realtor (this weekend). And really get agressive with the job search. I mean, MORE agressive than I've been already. The REALLY scary thing is listening to my husband tell me that maybe I won't need a job. THAT's scary. I've always worked. I don't do poor very well. If I didn't work - we'd be poor. Like - coupon cutting poor and only using them on coupon doubler days... Like - having to buy cheap toilet paper poor...which would really chap my ass. I mean...poor as in only being able to buy one child a set of clothing and screeching at them to not get them holes so the younger kids can wear hand-me-downs poor.

Damn I'm a snob.

Let me go figure out a quick way to rake in a pile of cash. BUY SOME PAMPERED CHEF FROM ME!!!

I'll be back with a real post later!

    Not working/relying upon someone else to support you = scary. However, surely there will be a company in S.A. that can appreciate a smart and sassy gal who is a Future Director!

    It will all work out, kiddo.

    You'll be fine. I found out a few hours ago my husband is leaving on March 31st... 3 years... of attempting to drive back and forth.. not happy.

    Linda - ya, but they all want to pay me $8/hour. I say.... NOT. I think I would cry the first paycheck I received. I'm trying to hold out for $15/hour (and that's on the low end)

    Stacie - OOOOooOOOOoooo!!!!! A nibble on my OFFER! Actually, a catalog show is really easy - and suprisingly successful!! All you do is give me your home address, I mail you catalogs & order forms, and you show the catalogs to your friends. They order, you let me know what they ordered, I place the order, and YOU get free stuff (depending on your sale amounts, you can get anywhere from $15 and up worth of free stuff....) You also get a discount that can be up to 30% off, the possibility of half-price items, AND you also get a "Hostess Special" which is 60% off a selected item in the catalog. On top of that - you get a 10% discount on Pampered Chef stuff for a year after. And might I add that IF you do a catalog show, you get to find out my true identity - which means I will swear you to secrecy. If you want to know if I'm on the up and up about stuff...ask Spicy Cracker. She did a show for me!! (She did my FIRST!)

    Spicy - awwww that SUCKS! I'm so sorry :(

    Crap. I just bought some Pampered Chef from someone else (the can strainer and decorator thingy).

    Now I feel like a dirty, dirty whore who's cheated on the love of her life.

    Forgive me.

    Freak Magnet -! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU DID THAT!!

    You really need to make it up to me. Why don't you host a catalog show?
