Another day of feeling like crap

I can't seem to shake this sinus/allergy problem I have. I don't think its yet another sinus infection but who knows. I have had several in the last year and never had issues before now. My head is achy, my nose hurts between my eyes and head.

I haven't been sleeping well at all, last night I think I fell asleep around 5 am only to be woken up at 8 am, 9 am and finally I am like leave me the hell alone. My husband knows I haven't slept in about a week due to the coughing fits that last all night and yet he still finds the need to come and bug me. Yes I know you need to go to work, Yes I know I need to get up, BUT you know I didn't sleep at all. Ugh men are so dumb sometimes.

Lucky me I have a 2 yr old at home that's not listening worth crap today and here it is noon and I have yelled at her at least 3 times and I just got up at 10!

Oh well, I need to sleep but can't because my luck she'll not nap. Til tomorrow.

Tupperware Party = Successful

I recently hosted my own Tupperware party and it turned out pretty good. I have $400 in sales and only had 5 come to the party! I ended up getting a lot of outside orders from those who wanted to come but couldn't. I get the great hostess benefits plus my normal commission so I think I did pretty well!

I also have a online fundraiser going on right now for a local softball team. They are doing pretty good as well. April will end with a bang for me and I will be good on my sales quota til the next 4 months roll around.

On one hand I am not really pushing to many more sales right now, and trying to hold off til August when I need them again, but I sure as heck will not turn anything down!

If you are interested in hosting a Tupperware party online or maybe a catalog party just let me know! I'll be glad to help you get started on the way to earn FREE Tupperware.

Under the weather

Well I have been quite under the weather the last few weeks it seems. I can't get rid of the allergy and sinus problems even with my Allegra. There are nights I just lay in bed coughing and coughing, so of course my throat is sore too. We are finally getting more summer like weather but it's not been enough rain to help the pollen.

This is by far the worst year for allergies, everyone I know seems to be having problems even the kiddos. Jess is having headaches almost daily and to think shes this young having problems I would imagine they will continue as mine have.

I hope to get back to posting more soon.

Made it to the dentist....

on Friday 13th of all days. I had my appt with the oral surgeon at 8:30 am to have 2 back teeth removed because they were really bad off. I really needed the root canals, build up and crowns but heck even with insurance we are talking over $500 for the 2, so I had to get them pulled and will save up to get bridges done soon I hope.

I had my wisdom teeth pulled about 3 yrs ago and you know for that they put you under but I really didn't like the way I felt when I woke up. I had trouble breathing and basically had a panic attack. So for this appt I had the choice of knocked out, IV Sedation or just Local. I chose IV Sedation.

I arrived at the dentist on time and they immediately took me to a room and started working on me. Heart monitors, bp cuff and tried to get the IV started. They tried 4 times and were still unable to get it and of course they busted one vein and its all puffy and bruised and my arm has a nasty bruise as well. Couldn't get it, so the Dr suggested Nitrous. He said it would help relax me a bit and I thought that's probably a good idea!

Well they get it started and it did not do well for me, I started getting panicky, felt like I couldn't breathe, was dizzy and seeing spots, so we had to stop that. Decided to do it with just the Novocaine and I was still very nervous at this point. The Dr started working on my worst tooth, one that had been broken off a bit already. I didn't feel anything but alot of pressure but every time he tried to pull it another piece broke off and I could hear it. Makes me shudder to even think about it now. That tooth was the worst and probably took 10 minutes to get out with each root having to be done separate and they actually had to cut some out. I have stitches in it.

He then tells me he's not going to do the other he's not sure if I can handle it because I was sort of freaking out. It didn't hurt a bit but I was just nervous and my bp was up and heart going fast. I told him he had to do it today because I wasn't coming back! So he let me calm down for a few and came back and did the 2nd one in like 2 mins. Didn't hurt and it didn't break off.

The fun doesn't stop there! They gave me pain meds which I started taking around 12 noon that day and kept taking every 4 hours so I wouldn't be in pain. That night when I got ready for bed I started having panic attacks as soon as I closed my eyes. When that finally stopped I slept for hours and hours. Got up at 7 and took another pill and the panic attack started again when I tried to go back to sleep. I felt sick, dizzy and thought I would pass out. So my hubby called the Dr and they said to stop taking the meds.

Luckily for me I haven't really been in any pain, it's tender on my cheeks and gums but it doesn't really hurt. I have been taking Tylenol but am getting some more Motrin today for it. Hope to be eating some real foods by Monday as right now I am living off of mac n cheese and other soft foods.

Happy Easter.....

Happy Easter hmmm well not so sure about the Happy part. You know how it is when you wake up and you can tell it's going to be one of those days? Well that's how my day started out. I just knew it would not be a good day, I went to bed with a headache last night and it was still lingering this morning.

Never the less I get up and try to be in a better mood up at 9, hubby was going to make pancakes and bacon and then the girls open their Easter baskets. So I am sitting and waiting, he gets them opening their baskets and by 10 he decides to start breakfast. By this time I am starving and the phone rings. It's my dad who comes over just about every Sunday to see the girls as he works Mon-Fri and I generally don't mind. However this so called wonderful husband is just starting breakfast, its 10, we all still have our pj's on and relaxing and he tells my dad sure come over in about 20 mins. I am like what the hell? I am sitting here not showered, have not ate nor got dressed. Why would you tell him to come over in 20 mins?

So that immediately put me in a pissy mood, I did not eat breakfast or get the girls dressed in their Easter dresses. I don't know what time my dad got here but I decided to stay in the bedroom the whole day. The girls stayed out all day and it would have been peaceful except for the dh decided to keep coming in and asking did I need anything. At one point I told him yes a new husband that had half a brain.

Well let's just say we still aren't speaking and he just irritates me more when I look at him. I hope to take the girls to get pictures soon as we didn't do it for Easter, so I guess Spring ones will have to do. Luckily their dresses aren't very Eastery......sigh.

How much is yours worth?

Your blog that is! Not to bad considering I just started putting it out there lol. Go find out how much yours is!

What a wonderful day!

Well besides the temps being below freezing this morning, it's been a wonderful day! I got a phone call from the lead contact person for a girls softball team that I have been talking to for a little over a week now. They want to the fundraiser! I am soo excited to have this opportunity because it will get my name, Tupperware out there to the public and hopefully some repeat customers! We gear up for the Tupperware fundraiser on April 15th and it runs thru April 30th, and what's really great is the girls team earns 40% of the sales they make.

I can't wait to see how it all goes, but I do know that every parent will buy something, because you know how it is if you are a parent. I just recently spent $80 for a FR so my dd could go to some big party because you had to sell at least 10 things to go. BLAH I don't like how they make you feel bad if you can't spend that money and your kid gets upset.

Anywho! I am also having my first Tupperware party on April 22 and so far I have 8 guests coming and still about 5 I haven't heard back from and some outside orders coming in! I tell you this April is ROCKING!

How to get a toddler to eat...??

Thats the question of the day!

I have a 2 yr old dd, who will eat but generally not what I want her to eat! We have to fight about it everyday and it's really getting old.

She likes: toast, cereal, breakfast bars, yogurt, corn, pork chop, cheese, mac n cheese, sometimes chicken, bread, crackers, cookies etc. .....

The list of "don't likes" is SO long that it would take me days to write. lol. So the question is how do you get them to eat when they are so picky? I swear you would think I was a first time mom with no clue, but I have a 6.5 yr old dd too but she was never this way! She would eat almost anything you put in front of her and still does.

Any advice or suggestions? I keep giving her the meals we eat now but half the time she just plays with it. We'll be taking multivitamins soon!

First Tupperware Party Scheduled!

I finally did it! I went ahead and scheduled myself an open house Tupperware party! I'll be my own host which means I get all the great hostess benefits and freebies plus my commission!

I have invited over 20 people so I am hoping for a great turnout and big sales! At least enough to make my goal for this quarter. I really am happy that I decided to join Tupperware as I have always loved the products and feel that this is something I can totally be passionate about.

Great incentives, trips and cars and other awards plus working the hours I want to work!

I am also working with a fundraiser lead and hoping to secure my first Tupperware fundraiser and make contacts with it as well.

I'll be sure to keep everyone posted!

Happy April

Well the new month is upon us and we must go to Spring but I can't tell by the COLD weather coming this week! Though again we hit summer temps in the 90's just a week ago and later this week it'll be in the 60's.

My moms group is planning our Easter Egg hunt on Sat and of course we were hoping for 70's weather and now it'll be mid 60's which isn't bad. I know both of my girls are looking forward to the egg hunt, as we aren't going to any other ones this year. They are always over crowded, the kids don't get many eggs, it's just not fun! We will have arts and crafts, egg hunt and games and of course great Easter food!

Not much else going on here, except for I did have a great lead for a fundraiser, but unfortunately it didn't work out because we do not offer online fundraisers at this time. So maybe in the future TW will get caught up on that and let us offer them as many places would rather do it that way.

That's about it for my random thoughts today! Enjoy!
