There are Still Some Decent People Around!

Well here in Edmonton, AB, we just had our first major snowfall of winter!  This makes driving a little more treacherous, as my brother found out tonight.  His car was parked on the side street (along with others).  He started work at midnight and thought he would warm up his car before heading to work.  He headed out only to find that his car had been rear-ended up onto the sidewalk.  We're not sure when it happened but the guy who did it was nice enough to leave my brother a note saying he was heading to the police station to report the accident, left his phone number, license plate, fleet car # (it was a company vehicle) and his name.

I thought that was really nice of him to leave my brother a note and went through all the steps necessary when an accident occurs.  Actually, I'm really impressed.  The skeptic in me believes that some people would have just kept on driving.  It just goes to show you that there are still some decent people in this world.

A Warning about PayBox

Okay, so I've been doing some research on PayBox and I didn't realize that there's a lot of people who are wary of the legitimacy of this site.  I'm a little wary myself, but right now it's free to join.  Minimal work is required to keep the account active (which I signed up with my email for giveaways, etc - not my main email).  If it's a scam, well I'll have wasted maybe 5-10 mins/day.  But if it's legitimate, I will have money accumulated without much work.  So to me, I've got everything to gain and nothing to lose.  And if it's just a scam to collect emails, I will just delete the email account and start anew.  I just thought I'd let you know if you're contemplating on signing up.

All Over the Place!

If it seems like my posts are all over the place, that's because my mind's all over the place!  2 1/2 weeks left of school - 2 research papers, a case analysis, and a stats lab exam!  Not sure how I'm going to pull this off but hopefully I will.  Then final exams; but at least I have 5 days from the last day of class to my first final.  I'll need the break and the time to brush up.

School is my #1 priority, but not my only priority.  I have plenty going on with my PartyLite!  I found during this semester going to school and working part-time was just too much.  So after plenty of discussion with my husband, Craig, we decided it was better for me to drop the part-time job.  And I love that he was willing to pick up the financial slack by working every chance he got, even though he's still rehabbing that fractured left elbow (poor guy)!  However, my guilt complex kicks in.  So I've also been focusing on my PartyLite business!  I have a home party next Saturday and a trade show the next day!  I'm looking forward to it, but am having trouble balancing school and PartyLite.  So I've made the decision that I will take the weekends off from promoting on my FB PartyLite page - we'll see if I can stick to that!  Lol!  And maybe Wednesdays....I still want to be able to connect with my fans but not the expense of my schoolwork and my sanity!

Thanks for sticking by me!

Time to Reconnect!

Wow!  I didn't realize it's been a week since I last posted!  So I thought it's about time to reconnect - on more than one front.  I hope you're doing well, and have at least started Christmas shopping since it's just around the corner!  But let's not have that overshadow the day that is Thursday, Remembrance Day.  Remember to wear a poppy in remembrance of those who have fought for our freedom.

Okay, so I did say I needed to reconnect on more than one front.  The most important person I need to reconnect with is my husband, Craig.  It's been over a month since we've spent any quality time together.  Between me trying to catch up at school and Craig working full-time AND part-time for the past month didn't leave us much time.  While I'm grateful that I have such a great husband who was willing to work at the part-time job everyday he was off from his full-time job just to take the financial burden off of me, it put a bit of a strain on our marriage.  It got to the point to where the only way we would find out what was going out with each other was Facebook!  Or through my mom (she gives Craig a ride to work when he works at 6 am - buses don't run early enough).

I'm still overwhelmed by school, but at least I'll have my husband back - well starting Wednesday that is!  Ahhh, it'll be nice to have some sense of normalcy again.
