American Idol

Well if you hear my music you might know that I am an American Idol fan. I'm loving Jason Castro and Brooke White even though I think I want David Archeletta to win. David Cook is pretty awesome too. There is just a lot of talent out there and it's nice to see some really decent people who want to share their talent with the world. I hope we can get away from the hooker looking pop and rock stars. I would love to see some modest looking people that sing songs where they don't swear every other word. I think I would definately buy a CD of Brooke or Jason. And even David A for the kids.

Room updates

Well we finally sold our other house that we fixed up so I got to bring my furniture back home plus some of the decorations that I used in the house to stage it. So now I get do a few updates myslef. My room has been kind of country cottage for the last 10 years so I have decided to get it updated. I also put some of the Wall Avenue frames on my wall about a year and a half ago and never put the pages in it that matched my room so I actually made some pages with some family photos. Now my big project is to paint my pine bedroom furniture black to match all the accents.

I just put a few new accents to my living room too.

You have a very high energy level. You could just keep on going and going forever. People like to be around you, but are sometimes intimidated by you. You have a hard time reigning in your energy a lot of the time. Your personality is very fun and bubbly.

Changes to TLC

Well on Friday night all TLC consultants got an email telling them that TLC as they knew it was gone. Basically it was no longer a MLM company that would no longer have consultants and no more downline commission. And this would start when; in a month or a couple of weeks. NO it starts as of that moment that they sent out the email. So typical of the way the company does things. They don't want to be there at the office to field any upselt phone calls. TLC will now be some sort of buying club. Basically a retail e-store :like a few of my fellow TLC friends had been thinking they might be going to since they never quite got rid of their retail mentality. I had basically put the business aside after my last expo in Las Vegas in Oct/Nov. I knew I was just going to keep it for the discount on the product (which are some of the cutest styles and best quality out there). I told my downline in Jan. and made it official but was still there for anyone that needed help. I started in 2003 and for 5 yrs I supported and did my best to get TLC out there and going big. That just didn't happen. I just feel super bad for those who have huge downlines and count on that money coming in to pay bills and support their families. (ie: Shari Boggs, Jan Pepe, Krystal Grant, Sonja Rod. and so on.) I just feel heart sick for them. I'm sure I will stay on for awhile in the "Sales Club" or whatever to get the products but I feel so sad about the way they handled things that I just feel like pulling out all together. They weren't loyal to the consultants who supported them to this point why should we be loyal to them. I know the economy is hurting and they needed to make changes but this certainly wasn't the way to tell everyone. Very sad information to digest.
Would you join a club and pay $15-$25 a year to get discounts on scrapbook products you order online?

My Y2K Baby

It's Josh's 8th birthday today. We had to get up a little early so he could open his presents before going to school. Now I'm going to take some treats over for his school class. Then this evening we get to go to his first pack meeting as a Cub Scout and it's the Pinewood Derby. Matt and Josh have been working on his car this week to get it just right. I think he will have fun no matter if he wins or not.
I just got finished with the invitations for his baptism that is in two weeks so I will post a pic too.
Hopefully he will have a great day.
