Work from home?

So over the last couple of weeks or so I've been thinking about trying to figure out a way to work from home. I've thought it over and did some research and thought about Avon and Mary Kay. I looked into Mary Kay and the start up cost wasn't feasible to me but I'd already start in the hole. Nah.... I then started looking at Avon and some how ended up on the mark. site. Hummm this looks interesting. A bit younger, fresher and hipper then what I remember from Avon.

So I took the plunge....I decided to sell mark products. It feels really pretty good because I know it's something I can do from home. I'm really excited to start trying to work for myself. I've started a new Facebook page for my mark products as well as a website for my reviews of products, promo's and giveaways. So if you're interested in just finding out what mark. is you can check out my boutique or my product blogs.

So not to long ago we got a new puppy from Daniel's sister. Her dog had puppies with Daniel parents dog so it's a mix of a dachshund and some kind of Irish terrier. She's really cute and we were originally going to call her Naddie to go with our chihuahua Cincy. (Get it Cincy-Naddie) but after a week of calling her Naddie I changed it to Charlotte. Daniel felt that Charlotte was to long of a name for a dog so it was shorten to Lottie.

Lottie is a handful and had made me wonder if children is really in the cards for us. I mean we adore kids but enjoy the freedom that comes from being child free.

Anywho some of the things Lottie has learned this past couple of weeks.

  • To go up the stairs. I sat on the top of the stairs showing her over and over how to climb up with her finally figuring it out. She's gotten pretty fast at it now.
  • To go down the stairs. This was learned separately from going up the stairs so for a long time she would just whine at the top waiting for someone to take her down after she climb the stairs. Now she drops her front paws to the stair below and kinda just slides herself down. She hasn't figured out to bring her hind legs with her so she's half sitting on the top step and kinds moves herself to the right to let the hind legs fall to the step she's on.
  • She's started sleeping through the night. At first I was getting up about every 2 hours for her to go to the bathroom. Now she wakes up every 4. Looking forward to the day she goes all night.

Cincy hasn't really taken to her. Most of the time she gets ignored with a rare time when Cincy will allow herself to be chased around the couch. When Cincy gets done she'll just jump onto the couch since she knows Lottie can't get up there yet.

It lasted a week...and we're a family of four

So I had this great idea about how we were going to save money by not having cable or internet. Well that lasted less then a week. On the day they were gonna come cut us off I caved. I had really good reasons. Daniel is taking classes for his job to get different certs and has to do them online twice a week. We had no idea how he was gonna study. That and life without Pandora or Accuradio isn't a life at all.

Also this week we welcomed a new bundle of joy into our I'm not preggers we got a puppy. Daniel's sisters dog had puppies with Daniel's parent's dog. So now we have this floppy eared, big eyed dog following us all over the house. We went through like 3 names for her and finally settled on Lottie which is short for Charlotte. My mother is dead set against the idea and is pouting that I didn't listen to her. Oh well. Mom will just have to get over it. I've got more funny stories about Lottie so look for those coming soon.
