My New years resolution

I don't ever abide by them, keep them, or truly make them. But something has got to be done! My health has gone to pot. I'm not sick, but I surely could take much better care of myself. This year, the end of the year is when I'm getting all my check ups done. That shouldn't happen. I just got my teeth cleaned, and have to have one removed. Why, simply put, I put everyone ahead of me.

I love my new job, but sometimes it can be too much. It's alot of paperwork, but I truly love the fact, that for the most part I'm autonomous. I like the fact, that the majority of the doctors aren't trying to throw me under the bus, or calling me foul names. And most importantly I don't share a job with other nurses who are trying to eat their young. I have two dons that truly care about the agencies, and I believe want to see all succeed. That is a good feeling. But my health must come first. (yes after abby becca and chuck, but before my patients) I did join a gym, which I will go to shortly to try to loose some pounds. I have to eat correctly also, and get my left shoulder fixed. I couldn't do the closed mri, so I will have to go to an open mri to get my left shoulder looked at. ( I fell at walt disney world) I do get plenty of me time....thank goodness. I have my blog, my fellow bloggers, face book and twitter.

So I resolve to take better care of me in 2010, the rest will fall into place. What about you, do YOU have a new years resolution?

Til next time.

Delicious Teas For the Winter, and the holidays

The flavors of month for DECEMBER are:

WHITE CHOCOLATE MOOSE: Sweet and creamy best describes the taste. Will make you come back for more!

CIAO AMARETTO: Cherry and almond combined in sweet harmony. Dash of sugar highlights the cherry notes and creates depth in the almond character.

Bring in the new year with some tea. If you said you wanted a sample, it will go out tomorrow. Otherwise request one today!

The holidays!

I had so much fun with my daughters this holiday season. Abby is 11 and Rebecca is 7, and I have to say they are at the perfect ages for Christmas!

Abby wanted to Christmas shop, just to shop, and Becky really does know how to keep a secret. Which worried me a little. Abby is getting the age to where she doesn't believe in Santa Claus, which means in no time, neither will Becky. We had a good year, in which we were able to spoil both kids. Which is good, because they are great kids!

I also got some baking time in with the girls. We baked cookies, and enjoyed them as well. I didn't get to do all the baking I wanted, but maybe next year. Baking during the holidays was a tradition when I was a little girl. I absolutely loved it, all the way into my 20's. It's something I want to hand down to Abby and Becky. We didn't get to bake for the neighbors, but we will make time next year for sure. We didn't get to go to Chicago like I wanted to either to see all the stores and lights. Instead, we went to Woodfield Mall in Schaumberg. What a mall! It's huge, and every high end store you can imagine was in that mall. For me, and avid window shopper, it would take a few days to get through that mall. My hubby went with us, he's not a shopper, but to spend time with the girls he agreed.

Next on my agenda is planning this trip to NYC in August. I have my work cut out for me since my husband agreed to go. He really is agreeing so I can go to Blogher 2010, and I'm not really sure what to expect with this convention. I hope it goes well. Other vacation plans include Boston in a few years...and then well, it's too early to decide.

Is anyone reading this I wonder. I see visitors on feedjit, but no one ever comments. On occasion I get a comment from a blogger friend. I feel like Julie and Julia, the ever persistent blogger, not knowing if I'm being read or not. Until next time.
Have a great New Years.

What scent am I?????

Finally a question worth exploring! This question was raised by the folks at Downy and Twitter moms. What scent describes me?? I have two that come to mind. I love pumpkin! I have pumpkin candles around in my home, and pumpkin sachets. I think it's the perfect scent to describe the fall season. The second scent that describes me is my all time favorite, lavender. I love that two. It's girlie, soft, smells great. I love it in my bath, candles, as as air freshner. I could never be both combined. I'm not sure it would smell all that great. So separately, depending on my mood, I think I am both. I would say also that both are sort of free spirit fragrances or scents, which sometimes describes my attitude.

If you want to learn where I got asked this question, go here:

thanks for reading.

Peace out.

It's been a while since I've written an On my mind note. The vendor chat sites are so competitive it's really getting quite nasty. So I thought I would write a little something about what is on my mind. For those that don't know, I've had vendor parties on Fridays for over 2 yrs. Yahoo blasts started with vendor parties in order to get people to come to these parties. (just a little background) When the owners of the sites became familiar with each other, they were professional and courteous as to NOT have parties on the same nights as others. This served all well, and many had a blast. It then grew into a monster...everyone wanted to make money and do vendor parties. So then came party hopping.

Party hopping is where potential customers, buyers, and other vendors were in more than one party room. This served well because it provided people the ability to see more sales and do more networking.

Zoom to 2009....Suddenly for some free sites party hopping is a problem. For the record, I do not see it as a problem. Those with restrictive party room policies only hurt themselves. For me to tell a customer where she/he can go to purchase or network in my opinion is unfair, and borders on being unamerican. I mean who am I to tell you where you can go??? The only steadfast rules I have at caroles party central is 1)be courteous, kind, and professional to all. 2) interuppt as little as possible 3) no back selling 4) pay all vendors 5) change name in fair if asked, and if not you will be banned for protection against hackers and anyone else. 6) be on time, and pay on time 7) stay for at least one presentation before or after yours. 8) if you promise a prize as a vendor, it is up to you to make sure your winners get your prize. If they do not get it, you will not be allowed to present in my room until prize is received. I will never tell you, that as a customer or friend you can't be in more than one chat. Sure arguments can be made, but I really feel we are all adults, and should be allowed to go shop where, when and with whom we want. Party hopping doesn't necessarily mean people aren't paying attention, according to its critics. People step away from their computers for a variety of reasons, and necessarily because they are in multiple chat rooms. YOU can not MAKE SURE people are paying attention or guarentee sales no matter what my critics may say. This was just on my mind. Feel free to give me your opinion or not. Have fun partying everyone, and don't forget Caroles Party Central.

Weight Loss Challenge!/Happenings from our vacation

Well it has begun! My hubby is excited about our next vacation to New York City...that's not why he challenged me. Although I do look forward to it. It'll be nice to see my handsome husband get back into the shape he once was. He has two dynamite kids to keep up with. They really are a bundle of energy. No, it came when I said I'd love to take the girls to Wyoming or Montanna to go horse back riding. Hence the rub, one has to be under 250 to ride a horse! So wish me luck. I said we are to loose 10 pounds by December, he wants to loose 50 by vacation time next year. We shall see what happens.

We went to Walt Disney World on our vacation this year. It was Beccas' 2nd airplane ride, and am so glad we all made it back in one peice. Of course we couldn't have an uneventful vacation. I ended up hurting my shoulder, and it took three doctors to determine it wasn't dislocated. I go to my own doctor this saturday. It was, and still is very painful, although I am able to move it a little better. Chuck had to help me with my bra on or I had to keep it on. I was wishing I had help this morning, it wasn't easy! Abby tried to help me, bless her soul. I think I may need some physical therapy, but will let the doctor decide that. All in all, I think the girls, Chuck and I had a great trip. It was fun seeing all the characters, parades, and rides. Becca is a real daredevil, and Abby still is my waterbug!! So is Becca! My girls do make me feel young, and I wish I could bottle up their energy. Abby bought back these cool light up drumsticks from Disney! They really are a cool toy for all. Now how can I top that for Christmas?

That's all for now.

Peace out.

all slots available. $2 per slot!


ok, I am going to add to this rather than just post the schedule. Why do a vendor party?
A better question is why not? They are all the rage for sure. Whether you pay for a slot or not, make sure you mix it up. Saving money is definitely a MUST in this economy, but people do want to see business owners INVEST in their business. With Caroles Party Central, you don't have to break the bank. AND we are more affordable then doing an outside festival or fair. There are plenty of sites that you can party at, just don't forget us, we've been doing parties for almost 3 yrs!
Party with us on Fridays. We are planning to bring back the bingo vault with delicious prizes from some of your favorite vendors. Always remember to stay positive. I know getting sales in this economy is everyones primary concern, but being a nay sayer is not good for your mental health, business health or overall health. People believe what they read, and is sometimes not all that easy to interpret on the internet. You (the vendor) may be a very positive person, but if you're always negative about ds or vendor parties, that is what will be read, not your true personality. Being positive is cliche, but also a must when on the internet, and party hopping.

Take care and I hope to see you on August 28th, at Caroles Party Central!


Update on my commitment

It's not that I'm not committed. Everything I do, I try to give 110%! I did join the gym, but this and the last week I've had trouble getting to it. I am going tonight however! I am committed. I gained instead of could that happen? Ah well...there is orlando, and plenty of walking...I'm sure to loose at least one pound there. Thanks to all my followers for your support and kind words and please do come back here for support. Together we can support each other. I know most of us have businesses at home too....please feel free to ask me if you can guest blog on here too. I may have a feature where we vent or give each other advice, support or whatever! I will tell you how my exercise regime went this weekend! I joined Cardinal Fitness, and I believe it will be well worth the investment, as well as working out on my own treadmill. Keep the comments coming!


Sunday, August 9, 2009

Start with....commitment Sunday!

Today is Commitment Sunday! I am committed to getting back into shape. Yes, I've said it before, but I've looked at recent photos of myself, and really am not happy. I want to loose 10 lbs at least. I'm realistic. I want to loose more actually, but I will start with 10. I will be honest with myself. With my new job, I've been doing alot of eating on the run. Stuff I've avoided doing for the past 1 1/2 yrs. I fell off the wagon, shame on me! Luckily my diabetes has been stable. My goal when I was diagnosed was to be off the meds by this time. I am somewhat disappointed, but realize I am only human, have flaws, and not infallible. I will set new goals, with the first a 10 lb weight loss by October. (or at least 1/2 that) I'm off now....Will go do the treadmill after cold case tonight. If you'd like to join my commitment sunday, leave a comment in the comment section. What will you commit yourself into doing?

Thanks for reading.




I know today was Abbys' day. She made her first communion, and in a few weeks we are on vacation to Disney. But I honestly can't wait for next year. I'm very excited about our potential trip to NYC next year. Yes, I was scoffed at, but I looked things up. I'm sure we will have plenty for everyones liking to do. Why NYC? I am very anxious to go to the BLOGHER2010 conference. I want to see what its' all about. I'm excited about everything. Disneyworld I've been to, NYC I haven't. I think it will be good for the girls too! I'm going to keep planning and saving.....I'll let you know more soon!

Thanks for reading.

Caroles Rant of the week!

New feature starting today! My rant of the week. It goes something like this...It is either about a hot topic on tv, or about a celebrity, (his her views, or quiet anything) or wahm thing. Here's my rant for today. BRAD PITT!

We all love him, or at least most of us do...whether you think he's charming, great looking, or is a great humanitarian. The man knows how to get attention. One thing that gets my goat however is this. Brad Pitt would like for us (you and I) to not tell him how to live, not to judge, or do anything of that sort. That's fine Mr. Pitt....but I believe you do the same as we do. You have an abundance of dislike for the religious, or so it seems. He has said, he is 20% atheist, and 80% agnostic. In some of the print I have read, he clearly does not like religious people and seems quite judgemental in his words. (my opinion) And while he states in the media he doesn't like to be told how to live, he continues to preach about prop 8 and the like.

Don't misunderstand. I am a big Brad Pitt fan, and don't have anything against prop 8. However, if someone doesn't like to be judged, and told how to live, then why are you telling us what we should vote for? AND why are you telling us HOW people should be allowed to live?

While I agree with some of Mr. Pitts' politics, I can't say I agree with his double edged sword.

If I tell you: "don't tell me or anyone else how to live" sure, I won't be telling anyone else how to live, vote or anything of the like. Just my rant.

Thanks for reading...Peace!

Religion and teaching

I will admit, I am not as religious as I was in my teens or twenties. I think this is a blessing in disguise, but only time will tell. I do try to raise my daughters in the best possible way I can. I try to spend as much time with them as I can, both my hubby and I. I just did splurge and bought Miley Cyrus tics, and we are hoping to go on vacation. The kids don't get that much, they really do not. They sign up for one or two activities a year. This year it will be acting again. I know I said I would add video. I'm waiting ....we will do that. But back to religion, as I digress....

We have made a major milestone! Abby made her first reconciliation. Then got mad at dad, because he wouldn't let the girls go swimming....go figure, she is only 10~ .....

Right now they are helping dad clean the yard. Yes, we are trying to instill that into them too....CLEANING!!! Imagine that....for girls, they are the messiest.....

My girls are good girls.....they are...on some days you couldn't tell, and on some days you would swear they are angels. To be honest they are somewhere in between....SOMEWHERE>.....LOL.....I love them, and don't know where I'd be without them!

How to apply bronzer, from MONET MINERALS

Spring is here - Fake a tan!
Everyone loves a nice glow, but who wants to risk the harmful effects of the sun? I know we all (especially those of us in the midwest) are desperate to get rid of that Casper white color once the temperature is nice enough for shorts. But before you turn to a tanning bed or your nearest beach, try a mineral bronzer to give yourself a healthy glow.

I've tried bronzer before,
it made me look orange and/or dirty

This is very common of the bronzers we're used to, but mineral bronzers are natural and very forgiving. Plus, a lot has to do with how you apply your bronzer. It's not hard, but there are a few simple steps you must follow if you want a beautiful sun-kissed tan.

The secrets

First cleanse and gently exfoliate your skin as you normally do. Apply a moisturizer and wait 10-15 minutes before applying your makeup.

Apply your concealer and foundation as you normally would. Even if you are already tan and the bronzer matches your skin tone, I recommend using a veil under your bronzer to aid in oil absorption.

Once you're done with your foundation, use your kabuki brush or another big powder brush and apply a small amount of your bronzer to your brush.

Gently sweep the brush across your forehead, down the bridge of your nose and around the tip of your chin (like you are making the letter "U").

Add a bit more powder to your brush, making sure to tap off the extra and gently brush the bronzer down the hallows of your cheeks and then to the apples of your cheeks (you are basically making a soft outline of your face).

I also like to brush it across my eye lids and my neck and chest.

Set your bronzed look with a translucent or tan veil.

Other tips

If you apply too much, tap off the brush and blend until you remove the excess.

Don't stop at your face! You can use mineral bronzers on the rest of your body, too.

Skip the sweaty pantyhose and apply bronzer to your legs for a night on the town.

A light shimmer eye shadow and nude glossy lips top off a beautiful summer tan.

Where to purchase??? I can help!


Grand opening of webstore!

I've just launched the grand opening of my webstore. It will have in stock items I have from my businesses. Plus gently used clothing for kids and adults. Please check it out at and click on webstore. I accept paypal, and the items are very reasonable. If you don't see anything in the store, check out the affiliate sites. You're sure to find something reasonable. Have a great weekend.

Turning 44, Am I complete yet?

Today in People magazine, supermodel Rebecca Romijn stated she felt complete with her twins. This Saturday, May 16th, I turn 44. I don't know when I'll be complete, but my two daughters sure make my life interesting to say the least.

I'm 8 yrs older then Ms. Romijn and already know the joys of motherhood, I wish every mom luck with their journey. Good luck with math, as Becca and I struggle with getting her math homework done. Needless to say, we haven't been able to get it done recently, and it's not her favorite subject either. My personal feeling is that kids do get too much homework these days.

Abby will be in the 5th grade, and I'm not sure how we feel about that yet. Soon we will give camping a try. Stay tuned for our adventures as summer is approaching.

Follow up,,,, Jaime Foxx, Miley Cyrus, The View

I like The View ladies, I really do. I mean, where else can you find a bunch of catty women who are just blatantly catty, and well to be truthful rude to their guests when they overtalk them??? No where, and perhaps that's why the show is so popular, and gets the brunt of jokes. Aside, individually each one is uniquely talented.

I was troubled when I tuned in The View, however to find 3 out of the 5 defending Jaime Foxx in relation to Miley Cyrus, saying he's a comedien, and he was "supposedly" joking. Really?
Are these ladies clueless...and Elizabeth Hasselbeck, was suprisingly quiet, which I found unusual, as outspoken and vehment as she is with these ladies. All of these ladies have children, adopted or their own. Now, if they don't have girls, certainly they CAN remember what it was like to grow up as a teen girl...can't they??? And since when is it ever ok for an adult to make fun of ANY teen, much less say the stuff Jaime Foxx said on his radio show??? I find this unacceptable. Ok, you're a comedien, whether dirty, clean or whatever, one thing is clear. It isn't ok to make fun of kids in any sense.
Teens, especially girls, in todays world have enough on their plate without adults causing more stress. We want our teens to pay attention and respect us right? Why would they do that when they hear adults like Jaime Foxx and the ladies on the view. The ladies made excuses. Not to mention, it lays the whole foundation for men to verbally abuse and joke about women world wide. Unacceptable ladies. There is a line. If you're going to be funny, be funny, but also be a humanitarian, kind, compassionate. These aren't values that you haven't learned are they???? Comediens should draw the line at kids, and yes Sherie Shepherd did say that, but it was drowned out by the others, shame! It is a shame that these women didn't get the point. Think about it. What was funny in what he said??? Did you really think that was funny? Would you, in a conversation with your girlfriends, think that was funny, if another woman or friend said that? What if it were said about your daughter, even as a joke? In my opinion, no mother should let another adult make fun of their teen daughter, Unacceptable....that goes for dads too!

When my girls get older, the one thing I hope is that they NEVER treat anyone with the kind of disrespect Jaime Foxx has shown Miley Cyrus. It is my hope that they NEVER make fun of another female. Now we all know how women can get, and I do have high hopes. I have great kids, I do thing the bar has been raised. Have a good Saturday.

Busy, happy life!

To say I never thought I'd be doing all of what I am doing today is an understatement. I never thought home health would be as lucrative and busy as it is today. I am exhausted, but happy to be. In a time when people are loosing their jobs, we are very grateful.

My daughters: Well they want to be in the talent show. What talent do they have? I'm not sure yet. I'm not even sure what they will be doing.

My hubby: Well he finally got his birthday present. His birthday was in December. He got a nice 32 in LCD tv. Now he just needs his new recliner.

I'm also excited that this year, my hubby and I will be married for 15 yrs. Oh yes, and he got me a gps for my birthday. NOW who do you think absolutely loves that technology? If you guessed me, you guessed wrong, try again.

Have a nice Saturday, and thanks for reading. While you are reading, if you'd like to go shopping, please do check out my site. I have great sales all the time, and great low cost advertising.

Oh come on Jaime!!!! Anti Miley smack down?

One has to ask who the adult here is???? I love Jaime Fox...Definitely a talent, but I also have kids. I can not tell you the distaste I have for ADULTS who pick on kids, and yes MILEY CYRUS, and what ever you may think of her, is still a child, a teen. Definitely not Jaime Foxxs' age, and what he says on his Sirius radio show about what she should do in Hollywood to get attention is appalling for anyone to hear. Really? chlymadia on a bike? How would you like that said about you Mr. Foxx, or your daughter or neice? Didn't you have as a guest to an awards show a young female relative? Imagine if someone had said that about her.

Miley Cyrus is entitled to what she says, as Radio head is to what they said. Honestly Mr. Foxx, I think Radio head did a supurb job in their response, and was very professional. Which is more than I can say for you. Honestly, what did you think your response accomplished.

I have to tell you, that I have two daughters, as you may well know if you read my blog. They are indeed, very busy. While Miley Cyrus may not be perfect, as a parent, I am appalled...I don't know what else to say. Definitely I would not want my child to act like that. Let's face it though folks, how many of us as children have said childish things. What excuse do us adults have?

JUST my thoughts for Thoughtful Tuesday.

Funny things said by my 7 yr old

Mondays are pretty boring. However, my 7 yr old I believe is in training to be a comedian. I am going to dedicate this day, Mondays, as funny things my 7 yr old says. Today, in an effort to get them more clean, or to have them do their chores, I had them take the dirty laundry to the basement. In this effort Rebecca, says, oh no, I think I disconnected my U-veeeee-la! *LOL*......I don't believe she knows what that is.

Have a great day!


New beginnings

We have lots of new beginnings!!! WELLLLLLL...I am very excited to report that Abby has learned to ride without training wheels! Well she probably could have done this last year, but we wanted to play it safe. She will get a new bike this year, and I am looking into getting both Becca and Abby roller skates for the spring.

Chuck just wants a new t.v. and his recliner I promised him for his birthday and surprise there!

Actually we are thinking of going to Disney again this year for vacation. I am not sure we will do it. We are finding really awesome deals. And Chuck is wanting to fly the girls out, so that will be their first plane ride. That alone is exciting for me, because I didn't fly until I was money...yep...poor as dirt!

Any way, my home health job is really kickin. Lots of paper work, but I still love it. Very unstressful....

We had a great, PEACEFUL Easter and hope you did too. This is why this blog is called MY BIZZY WORLD..not busy enough eh?

Networking? Always!

My vendor parties are on hold until I can update and I have alot of that to do, also
I am collaborating on an I will be writing tonight.

The girls are looking forward to their summer musical, and I am hoping to enroll them in baseball. And how are you? Drop me a comment or email.

Caroles Party Central

Good morning ladies. A few updates on me. I am still looking for vendors on monday, and if there is still decreased interest in parties at this time, I may close down for a short time to concentrate on my site, businesses, and other things. What does that mean for you? I will still have networking chats, and low cost advertising. One of the things I will be working on is getting my page revamped and climbing on the ladder of google. Right now there are too many sites saturating the field, which is not necessarily a good thing. My networking chats will consist of many things, I don't want to discuss that now, you will have to attend to find that out. Networking chats will be free at this time, vendor parties when I have them again will cost. I can't advertise all over and not have my
vendors do the same. We are all in this together to make parties work. If I advertise, I also expect you to advertise outside of blasts, esp if we have the majority of people on blast lists. Now this does not mean caroles party central is closing down....By no means!!! I love what I do! I am just going to do other things right now to make MYself more visible, before I invest any more money,,,,,this is for you as well. I will still pass party blasts for others as well as participate!!!! We will discuss party spots on an individual basis. Paid party spots will still be honored. I don't rip people off. I will be back.

I will still have Caroles Party Central - ning network.

Thoughtful Tuesday!

I am grateful! Not for my family alone, but for my job! I have a great job the majority of the time. I am a part time nurse, but I can DO anything. I work in hospitals, nursing homes, and do home health. I do pretty much anything...and it wasn't always that way. I chose what I wanted to do, and the hours. It wasn't always that way either. As you can see, my job changes frequently, and often I have to travel long distances. Along with the opportunities I have at hand, I can take hospital travel assignments. I really look forward to those when hubby retires, and the girls are old enough as well. I look forward to traveling to Hawaii and other places like that. Many times staff nurses are jealous (esp in the hospital arena) Sad but true, esp if you are a per diem RN. They don't outwardly say it, but in their actions and attitudes. I've experienced it as well as many other RNS. Perhaps because of my mouth and opinions...or perhaps not. In any case, the moral of my thoughtful Tuesday is to be grateful for what you have. Don't let jealousy get the best of you. It's not a pretty picture when it does, and not only hurts you, but others as well.

Thanks for reading.

So being a good blogger, and wahm, I decided to join Twitter. After all it was supposed to be the next big thing in social networking. At first it seemed awesome, everything was flowing, ebbing, as it should. I would forget a password, get it reset, and things were back to normal. All kinds of groups popped up, people made up groups in their ning networks devoted to twitter. Even, me, Carole Harris has a twitter group here I was excited, and quickly got followers and made friends. I joined all kinds of chats and eventually had to go back to work somewhat. Then my twitter downfall, I forgot my password once more, and am not getting it reset for some reason. Other people I am finding out are getting locked out too. How can this be???? HOW can something so wonderful come to an abrupt halt??? I read up on all the apps, dos and don'ts, and kept my ning network updated as I could. I am so bummed out! If anyone reading this in twitterville can help...PLEASE DO! I have emailed and emailed twitter to no end or solution! thank you so much for reading.

Sweet memories and more!

We've been busy adding many new products, as well as putting many items on sale

We've also added a new promotional program that we will be running for the next
few months. It's "Star Savings" & will be held one week out of every month. If
the star is found in our store, then customers will receive 15% off of their
entire order.
We will be adding many more products over the next few months geared toward
corporate/business promotional items, so stay tuned for that! You can always go
to our store & click on the "what's new" link to find out the latest products in
our store. Our blog is also a great place to find product updates.
Don't forget about Teacher Appreciation Week, which is the 1st full week in May.

Have a wonderful weekend!

This was posted on my yahoo group. I have many more specials too. Here is one
from Teaporia!

It may surprise you to learn that the people of Ireland drink more tea per
capita than any other population on Earth. In fact your average Irish citizen
drinks about 6 cups per day. The cups they drink are so strong that you could
almost stand a spoon upright in them. Indeed, the Irish prefer what some might
call a sturdy cup of tea.

So for the month of March, in honor of St. Patrick's Day, we are offering 25%
off all our IRISH BREAKFAST Teas! They include....

The Assam component of this Irish blend gives the cup a strong, deep malty
character with heavy layers of astringency that dry the mouth, feeling almost as
if you could chew the tea. The Kenyan teas provide a bright coppery colour with
profound floral notes that add a complex depth to the cup. As with most teas,
the longer you brew this tea the stronger it becomes. If you're Irish, you'll
let this tea brew a good long time!

All the traditions of Irish tea and then some. Creamy caramel highlights dot a
wickedly full bodied tea. Milk accentuates the golden cup.

Decaffeinated in the green leaf stage and then processed normally giving a malty
tea taste with gold highlights. Our finest tasting decaf tea!

Full bodied with the "umpf" of black tea but the gentleness of green tea.
Enticing toasty hints of flavour. Massively Irish!

Thanks for reading!


If you have questions please ask me. I can answer and if I don't know the
answer, I will find it out. Tea has less caffeine then coffee or soda! We have
alot of great ideas and favors at sweet memories too! Please check them both
out. They are also free businesses to join.

Sassy Saturday!

Not enough time in a 24 hour period! Right now my two daughters are sleeping, but it was a rough night last night! Abby was very sick, and vomited all night. This morning she was bright eyed and bushy tailed. I got cancelled from my agency hospital job. I had called them last night to see about the possiblity...they said no possiblity or little. They lied. I have tons of paper work to do for my home health job though, and so I will get to that soon. I've also updated my chd blog, so please do visit that, and will be giving out prizes SOON! and had a winner to the contest here, she will be getting her tarts! I also had to rearrange my online vendor party days because, well money. I can't turn down 50 dollars an hour for much the parties will be on tues and wed. Fascinating I know! However I am a big believer that vendor parties, whether you pay for them or not are THE best way, to sell your wares. Blogging is another. I still have to send out my lemonade awards, I have not forgotten, and I haven't plurked today. I've twittered, not plurked. Darn! That's it for my Sassy Saturday! Have a great weekend.

Til we see each other online again.

A leading role, and a serenade

I have two little performers. Actresses, drama queens, attention seekers, what ever you want to call them, they certainly love to be the center of attention. My oldest actress just got the lead role in her little play, and she is playing old king cole. It should be fun, and I'll try to get video on it on my blog. Even though Abby has learning disabilities, she did greating with her stage direction, acting, and inflection of her lines. One of the moms even made a comment on how well she did. We'll see how things go. Becky and Abby were both in the musical last summer, and both want to do the musical this summer as well this year. I'm glad both have found this creative outlet.
Becky, my very loving 6 yr old, just burst out into song before I started writing this blog. I have never seen such creativity....Oh the action around here! Just remember my two budding actresses ten years from now, you never know! I get told at least ten times a day by Becky that she loves me. I'll keep you updated on rehearsals and all the fun we are having in this acting workshop! Don't forget about my giveaway, only a few days left!

Thanks for reading!

Uncle Kenny, Uncle Kenny

Yes, he's arrived. Uncle Kenny has come to Joliet Illinois, and Becky couldn't be happier. Just days ago both my daughters in tears as their social lives began to crumble because of the cold weather. No roller skating, no band concert. The world looked pretty grim to a certain six and ten year old. But wait, a glimmer of hope, a light at the end of the tunnel!! Their Uncle Kenny had come in from Arizona to visit. The Harris family had a bunch of January birthdays to celebrate. So all day Friday, what did Becca talk about? "Her Uncle Kenny of course! When she wasn't watching cartoons, playing/wrestling with Abby, or playing on the computer, just one man was on her mind, and this time, it wasn't daddy.

Chuck called at 5:30 cst, our inlaws wanted to invite us over for dinner. OH MY! Did he know? Did he know that Uncle Kenny wouldn't get a moments rest from his beautiful blonde neice? (Yes she's beautiful...LOL) And not a moment of peace is right. Right off the bat, both girls told their Uncle Kenny of their boyfriend (real or imagined), and the poor man. He ate with a 6 yr old, non stop talking to him about EVERYTHING. We will see Uncle Kenny on Sunday to celebrate birthdays. I'm sure Becca is going to have plenty to talk about.

I hate hearing that word in any context, but I especially hate it with my job. I am an agency nurse, and in this economy must be the worst job to have. It's a job mind you, kind of like construction. But it is hard, and we do struggle. Hospitals pad their staffing, which is why alot of agency nurses get cancelled. I have been waiting for our state nursing organization to step up and help out agency nurses. After all their motto used to be helping every nurse. But after supporting Blago, and reading their last newspaper, with every other business, the only way an agency nurse will get noticed is if she pays dues. She "might" get noticed and heard. Don't get me wrong...I'm all for nursing organizations, but I don't feel Illinois Nurses Association represents or can represent EVERY nurse. So what's a lone agency nurse to do. Other than have multiple agencies and maybe a side job, not much. Agency nurses don't have it easy as some might think. Just my thoughts for today.
