The Tupperware Lady

All of us have some kind of dishes in our kitchen be it pots, bowls, plates, flatware, etc. We all like to eat on fine china and set the table with our best silver. But what do you do with all those leftovers that need to go in the fridge or all the extra boxes of snacks, cereal, crackers and such that are crowding up your cabinets?? You call The Tupperware Lady!!

I have a good friend in Florida who is a great Tupperware consultant and has held many parties in my home and my friends home's. I learned very quickly that Tupperware had not gone out with the dark ages but was in fact still the most popular plastic around. Slowly I began to collect pieces and some of them I use daily. Others I keep in the cabinet for those special occasions when they are needed.

This week I have made the decision that I want to try to sell Tupperware in my area. I don't know how good I'll be, but I can tell you that I have the greatest teacher in my friend Sue Skirvin and I know she will train me well to be a consultant. I'm looking forward to stepping out on my own and seeing how well I can sell the merchandise. Right now there are not very many consultants in my area, if any. I hope to monopolize the area and quickly.

So if you live in my neck of the woods and are interested in having a party, please feel free to contact me through Facebook or leave a comment on this page. I would love to book a party with you!! I think it's going to be an exciting adventure for me and hopefully a good source of income.

Thanks for stopping by!! God bless!!

Snow, ice and lots of cold!!! Winter is here!!!

Winter has arrived in full force. Finally!!! We have waited all "winter" for the cold and snow to come. The girls received sleds for Christmas and have waited anxiously for that "big" one to come so they can slide down the hill...lol!!! Hopefully before winter is over this will happen!!

We are doing well. Tom is working hard getting his dad's building built. It's pretty big so after work and on the weekends he is over there hammering and building. The girls and I are just hanging out enjoying being together. Tom's dad had a tree log fall on his leg and it was broken in 2 spots. He is healing up well but will be on a walker for a couple more weeks. He is so anxious to get outside to help Tom with his project.

School is half over and Tricia is doing great!!! She loves Truth Christian school. Makes me feel good when she is happy. They are getting ready for a big Valentine's Day party. They are having a valentine box contest. We are hunting ideas for a great valentine box for her to take to the party.

Katie is happy all the time!! She never stops talking unless she is singing or asleep...lol!! She has all kinds of imaginary friends and they have so much fun together...lol!! She is doing her Abeka home school material. She is smart and I have a great feeling she will do well in school.

I have been on a low carb diet and have lost about 24 pounds. I went to the doctor in November and she did an A1C test on me and the results were not good. Instead of going on meds as she suggested I decided to make some radical changes in my life. With God's help I have been able to lose the weight and my sugar has stayed down really well. I'm anxious to go back in February to be checked again. I started walking around our house. We have a circle road that goes completely around us. 5 laps around is a mile and I am up to 10 laps. Because of the nasty weather I have been doing Walk A-Way the Pounds inside. I am very happy with the results so far and I am trusting God for strength to keep on losing pounds. It's hard when you like to eat...lol!!

So, I trust every one's doing well and that God is leading and guiding you every day. Without Him we would be nothing. God bless til next time!!!
