Changed My Mind

I know..How so like a woman to change her mind. But as much as I would relish the opportunity to make some money. I hated that site. So here I am back in action. New post tomorrow. Please ignore my indecisiveness.

I have moved sites

I moved because I have an opportunity to earn money with my writing. I know that sounds jaded, but I am a single mom and I need any money I can get. I hope you join me at the new place.

Yeah I know the title is cheesy, but hey, what can I say? It was what actually happened. This weekend, my oldest. The fifteen year old that will be sixteen in about a week, eek!, brought me a paper. He then said, "Mom, can I go on an Easter egg hunt?" Before looking at the paper, I looked at him like he was crazy. He laughed and said "Read the paper. There is going to be prizes. I want the Xbox."

Right then, everything made sense. The local park was having a huge Easter egg hut for kids between sixth and twelfth grade. Each child or teen had to pay five dollars. I thought, what the hell. Left the young monster with a friend and headed off to the park with the oldest. The next thing I knew, I was in the midst of about 500 teenagers. 98% of them did not have a parent with them. Yep, even in the boonies, parents drop and run. Crazy. There was a D.J. and lots of loud music. It was actually fun watching the kids dance like mad. They were all waiting for it to be dark. I forgot to mention it was a nighttime egg hunt.

500 teenagers, 500 flashlights, 7,000 Easter eggs and 700 prizes. It was chaos when they let them all take off. The biggest prize was the before mentioned Xbox that my son wanted. He ended up with a bag of candy and grape flavor chap stick, which I teased him and said was meant for a girl.

I ended up being recruited to help supervise, surprise, surprise. Have you ever been at the bottom of a hill full of prize filled eggs and watched hundreds of teenagers charge down that same hill towards you? Rather intimidating. Just glad I wasn't an egg.

How was your weekend?

Time Flies

Why is it.. when you are bored..everything seems to take forever, yet when you are busy time flies? It seems to move at such a rate of speed that you feel like you are getting behind instead of ahead or running on schedule. Maybe time is truly a perception and not an actuality. Been super busy this week. So busy that I honestly can't believe it is Thursday and wonder what has happened to my week.

Thanks to Dixie, I am officially hooked on Dancing with the Stars. That is one of the luxuries I allow myself. So I watch it online on Tuesdays. That takes care of one relaxing time this week. But everything else. Pretty much a blur.

I sell on eBay, so many trips to the post office. Trips to the bank. I even held my first flea market show this week. Except to the setting it up and the hauling of all the stuff there, I had a total blast and the day just flew. The flea market actually proved to me that there are still genuine nice people out there. Since I didn't think it through, such as bathroom breaks, socks, food and coffee. So there I was freezing and one lady brings me socks. She said I was making her colder. Cracked me up. Another lady brought me coffee. One man was nice enough to watch my booth so I could run to the ladies. THANK GOD! and yet another man like our conversation so much he brought me breakfast.

Well, off I run again. Another trip to the Post Office and bank. Then I think I will treat myself with some shopping. Hey, what can I say. Down deep I am such a girl.
