Ok, so we painted the family room on Friday. The color is sweater green by Ralph Lauren. The paint brand is Glidden. Very inexpensive paint, economical - code for cheap - $7.50 a gallon. What do you think? The color grew on me. Here's the before and after.

Wesley is 16 years old today. I cannot believe it. I know he is ecstatic since among other things he is finally of age to go on a date. I'm dedicating this post to him on his birthday today. He's a awesome son. He's kind, sweet, loving, thoughtful, giving, funny, handsome, spiritual and a good brother to his siblings. Happy Birthday Wesley!!!

I love it! If you are interested in earning additional streams of income you must let me know. I am so happy about Melaleuca's new presentation. I cannot wait to use it. Plain and simple, request more information and I would love to share it with you.
I did a training at my house today. I had 6 guests learning about the new presentation. We practiced some basic appointment setting skills. I served finger foods. It went well. I plan to set Georgia on fire with this new presentation. http://www.workathomeunited.com/pamela

How many women are still waiting for prince charming to sweep them off their feet? I will admit that I was waiting. When I was married the first time I thought that we would just assume our roles of husband and wife and all would be perfect. I do know that I was committed to the whole package. Being wife, Mother, homemaker, whatever. I was ready to get married. I am the loyal and dedicated type. I am the stand by your man kinda girl. It's Us against the world kinda girl. I married the first time in 1991 and we separated at the end of 1995. I remember feeling so embarrassed because it didn't work. There were several other emotions of course but that one surprised me - embarrassment. I paid for the entire wedding myself. I saved for a year. I paid over $3000 for my dress. I wanted everything to be perfect. I may have been ready to get married but what I didn't know was that he wasn't.

I know it's late for this but I had to say something about today. I had a phone presentation call scheduled today which usually takes 22 minutes, I also had a financial advisory board meeting at ABC Montessori School (Halle's school) for the same time. This morning Kyra told me that her PTO performance was happening today at 7 and then I get a call from Wesley at 2:30pm from school telling me that he has a 7pm concert at the Performing Arts Center in McDonough. I was kinda stressed today but I did it all. I got through it all. I was able to drop Wesley off at the concert but could not stay and watch. I did go to Kyra's performance at the PTO meeting though. On the way home I bought Taco Bell for the boys. I cannot wait until Tony gets home. He's been out of town since last Saturday. By the way, I chose meditation.

My Dad is 78 years old. He'll be 79 this June. My parents have been married about 56 years. That's a long time to do anything let alone live with the same person. I hope that I can have that same longevity.

Tony is in NY visiting his Mom and working on his sisters roof.
The kids and I went to church
I went to dinner with my Mom, my sister Karen and my niece Jackie.
I did not cook today, I bought a bucket of KFC.
Now I'm going to take a nap and when I wake up I'll watch that Brad Pitt movie Benjamin Button and eat some Butter Pecan frozen yogurt.
Happy Mother's Day to all Mom's!! It's a thankless job with moments of joy.
My Mom, Jackie (my niece), and my sister Karen

Tony came home today with the neighbors dog. He asked me to come downstairs and when I did he was standing there with her. My neighbors had two dogs, one male and one female. They wanted to get rid of the female, I think because they did not want to spend the money to spay her. I thought she was cute because her paws are white with light brown polka dots. I think she is a Labrador mixed with some kind of collie. Her name was Diamond. We changed her name to Sandy. Here she is we are keeping her for a week to see if she gets along with Dutchess.

We got this dog from my sister Karen about 8 months ago. We love her. She's grown on me. Kyra adores her. If she even thinks that Dutchess is uncomfortable she cries. She a female American Pitt Bull Terrier. She still losing teeth. She's about 10 months old.
Kyra and Dutchess...I call her Dutchy
We were thinking of breeding her and had an offer but now she has an appointment to be spayed. She's a very smart dog. Check out how she poses.
I think she was upset with me because I chained her up.
Kyra and Halle with Dutchy
Dutchess after her Saturday bath...so fresh and so clean.

Even viruses. Halle came home from school and sat in this new used work van Tony bought the same day he bought the grill and the sink. Oh? did I forget to mention that? Anyway, here's the van. Old van but runs good. Original price that the owner was firm on was $1500. After Tony test drove it and spoke to the seller he made a deal for $800. I told you he was amazing~ He'll be selling the white truck. He wanted a vehicle where he could lock up his tools and keep them dry.
Sol-U-Guard Botanical® 2x Concentrate Disinfectant Kills 99.9% of common household germs using citric acid and botanical thyme oil. Sorry I just had to throw in a plug for Melaleuca.
I had done this on Tuesday also but did not wipe down every room. This time I wiped down EVERYTHING. Two and a half hours later I laid down to rest. Only Justin had gone to school and Tony went to work. Everyone else was at home. They seemed fine. Accept for me. I was Sooooo sick. I was queasy and I had diarrhea. I won't describe it but I will say that I did not know whether to stand or sit down in the bathroom. My stomach had cramps and I was in bed until the next morning.
She looks like her too doesn't she?
