What a Day!


This morning Amoeba over-slept.  This is a unique and rare thing, so I did not wake him.  Since he is to be my new boss on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, I didn’t want him grouchy.

And, yes, you read that correctly.  I am training to be a lab tech.  This means I get to clean up after Amoeba at home and at work.  ♥  Seriously, this was partly my idea.  Since I am not working and since his science budget doesn’t have room to pay a tech, why can’t I do the job? I’ll be learning something new, and interacting with live people.  I think it will be fun.

Amoeba also has a teenage volunteer.  She is still in high school but already taking college classes and very intent on becoming a scientist.  Her volunteering for Amoeba is giving her practical experience and job skills.  Plus, it is helping her with her science studies.  Today we were both brushing up on our knowledge of the Periodic Table as we were trying to find assorted items in the stock room.

After leaving the labs I stopped at the church.  The Pastor’s wife, another lady and I are putting together a women’s book study for the summer.  We are making it an online class so people can fit it into their week as best they can. We haven’t got all the kinks worked out yet, but we are hoping to launch the first Sunday in June.  Near the end of May I will teach a “how to interact with a blog” class for the ladies who are wanting to join in, but are feeling a little intimidated.

After the meeting I returned home to find 5 boxes of Avon piled up on my porch and waiting for me!  Speaking of Avon, if you order online right now and use the code SPRINGFREE you will get free shipping on any order over $5.00.   We have some great sales going on right now, including Skin-So-Soft which not only smells great and softens your skin, the Original Bath Oil Spray (p.158) works as an insect repellent, too!

And, right now every purchase of lip gloss earns you an entry in the “Now Is The Time to Shine Sweepstakes.”  You could win a FREE CAR.  Avon is giving away a 2010 Red Chevy Malibu 4-door sedan.  If you buy one lip gloss you get one entry.  If you buy 4 lip glosses you get 4 entries.  If you buy more, you get more … and we’re talking Glazewear, America’s #1 selling lip gloss.  Never sticky!  Glazewear feels light and moisturizing.  And it comes in 16 fabulous colors.

LOL!  Do I sound like an Avon Lady?  I am!  And I love my products.  Right now there are 6 different e-brochures to shop from, including one full of Inspirational Treasures.   I am afraid shopping for Avon through my site is limited to the US States, Territories and military installations.


  1. Oh, glad you can do some work and help your hubby. Even though it’s a Volunteer job and cleaning after him AGAIN 😉
    Sounds like a bunch of fun to me 🙂
    Wishing you at least a lot of it 😀

  2. Dear God woman when do you sleep? You seem to have so much going on and you do it well! I have very little and I do it after 9 or 10 hours of sleep a day!

    1. Amanda – -step away from the curtain. I don’t want you to see the truth. (And you might want to avoid the laundry room and the closet, too, because the house is a mess!)

  3. It´s always good to let the boss sleep! 🙂
    Glad you are working with live people. I´m sure it will be fun.

  4. weren’t you complaining just a couple of days ago that your life was too busy? and now you’re takin on even more tasks…
