I am trying to talk myself into being sleepy so I can go to bed. Work tomorrow morning. Do you know how long it has been since I had a Bed-time? HeHe.
Any way I actually managed to accomplish alot of things over my two day's off, got alot of Avon books out of the house, went up to the tattoo shop with my daughter to pull files that I need at home and got these two pieces of jewelry finished and listed in my shops. Of course the one worry I have had is once I started the new job was would I be biting off more than I could chew? I don't know yet , it is way to early in the game but I am hoping not. To be so productive and do so many things even if it is just listing a new item a week and getting 1 new Avon customer a week will make me so happy. I have needed to feel like I had something to contribute and it is finally happening. Please don't wake me up:)

Of course I have had to take 2 tylenol before work and 2 more as soon as I get home but that is to be expected. My legs and feet are killing me and here again it just will take time until my body is used to it again. But very happy to have tomorrow and Saturday off to rest, work on my jewelry, list some things in my shops and get Avon books out. On Sunday back in with a little more confidence.
All in all I really think I like it and have a good time with it.

#1. I would love these but with alot more dangles. this was just to thin with the six strands but I can see it being quite presentable with 10 to 12.
#2. I like this just the way it is. I love fringe, I love mixing different shades of a color.
#3. I think this one would be very adaptable for either a woman or man depending on the color choices and stone choices around the cab.
#4. This was the only thing I could come up with strictly masculine. I can picture it in say Black with silver stripes running through it. Maybe a bit wider.
So what I need is opinions. Which one draws your eye? What do you think would be saleable? Truly looking for a number of opinions and that will give me an average of which one is best liked. Thank you!!

On a brighter note, I am super excited tonight. I actually got a job today. I had an interview this afternoon and was hired right there. I start Wednesday. You have no idea what a relief this is, I am so tired of worrying about what I am going to do. Any way I am working in a deli called Legends Cafe. Really neat.
You walk in, very casual, very deli like, the walls have posters such as from the movie ScarFace with Al Pacino. Everything on the menu is named after a sports star or movie star Like these:
The Mickey: Chicken parm sandwich
The Earnhardt: Turkey melt
The Deniro: Tuna salad wrap
The Hepburn: Grilled chicken wrap.
And on and on, even the salads are named after Tv shows. I think it is going to be great fun and I am so looking forward to it. So I feel blessed to end this weekend on a Happy note. Goodnight all.

Any way, my daughter is home all week and we have been pulling stuff together for a one day sidewalk sale this weekend, time to unload the excess stuff we always seem to have. We will work through till Friday night then hope for traffic Saturday. I had another job interview today at another deli/restaurant, will wait a few day's to hear something. Had a horrible fight with my next door neighbor a few day's ago and still feeling sick over it. But I shouldn't , wont' go into the long and boring story but she is one of those people who will use every agency possible, every person around her possible and suck up every bit of free help she can get while she and her husband sit on their fat **** letting every one support them instead of working. She has taken advantage of me and mine many times over the years and I have never said a word, did what I could and tried to stay a pleasant decent person. This week she did some things to my family that crossed the line and I let it all out. I don't think I will have to deal with her any more. Any way with all this stuff going on I haven't accomplished much beadwork and and probably won't until we get this sidewalk sale thing out of the way. I can't say yard sale cause we don't have a yard:) I will let you know how it goes. Hope you all are having a great week, I am going to go lay down in front of the AC.

That always gives you such a great feeling, the pick me up that I needed.
Now the contemplation. I go back and forth constantly with whatever my life circumstances are at the time. As I explained when I first started this blog, my illness and subsequent surgeries permanently disabled me. That being said I have worked hard and come along way since 2004. When my health is not cooperating, I concentrate and work and strive to get my beadwork out there, be a presence wherever I can with the different sites to promote and join in and pray the day comes that this blessing in disguise will help support me. I call it a blessing in disquise because all the years I worked, I worked hard and long hours just to keep a roof over my kids heads and my only sorrow was not having the time to turn my love of beadweaving into a business to see if I could make a career out of it. Being disabled in the way that I have I have the ability to create with my beads as many hours of the day that I want. Somewhere in my heart I beleive that if I stick with it, continue to create, continue to interact, find the right places to market that I can reach the goal that I set for myself which is really not outrageous. Then, the bills start coming in, cutoff notices start circulating through my mail box and I get scared and spend my day's looking through all the job adds, searching for things that my health will allow me to do and there are plenty of things I can do again just maybe not 14 hours a day like I used to. So I email cover letters and resumes. I go on interviews , then I wait and nothing. I get so upset I cry, I have many years of experiance in many fields, I have always been a hard worker, dependable worker, self motivated and strong. Why can't these prospective employers see this? I ask myself over and over why and all the time I am asking, I know the answer. They want to know why I haven't had a job since 2004 and the minute they find out I have had major brain surgery they are frightened of me. I know this, I have to accept this and just stay positive until the day comes that someone can get passed that and see what a asset I could be.
Then- then I get a day like today where my beads have brought me in just enough money to handle the latest crisis and I start another conversation with myself. I start telling myself again to just stick with it. Eventually I am going to start getting the sales I need. Sooner or later the right buyers are going to find me, be patient, keep getting my name out there, keep showing what I make as I get it done, do not get discouraged because someday all the sudden it is going to start working. Yup, the pep talk.
But I believe this pep talk, just have a problem with being patient while I am going through all this mundane fact of life stuff. Does this make sense? Do you go through this stuff? Am I wrong or am I on the right track if I just listen to me? Sure wish an Angel would whisper the answers in my ear cause I get really tired of reassuring me. If you have been where I am please share with me , advice is always a good thing.

I love it when I can actually let my mind free to come up with new ideas.
