a little change

A double posting day!

That's what happens when I take 5 weeks off!  Yes yes, I know I apologize every time I take a long break.  I am trying to stop that but I will just say a little SORRY and then be done!!

So lots and lots of stuff happening around these parts!  My last 5 weeks have been spent signing my name multiples times for some very important stuff.

My cousin and I bought my father's plumbing & heating company Clowater's Plumbing & Heating!

That's my real job, perhaps not very glamorous but I think I do a good job at it.  It's been a slow, sometimes grueling process but I think it will be a good move and I hope we continue to make it a great company!

I have managed to do lots of crafting and fun with the boys in between perfecting my signature.

I will post those in the weeks to come!

This decision to purchase the company was one that seemed to make sense one minute and cause great stress another.  Sometimes life gives you challenges to make sure that you really want it.  If it was easy, I guess you couldn't really ever be sure.  Well I have worked hard to make this happen and I am confident that I want it!  (most of the time :)

I look forward to figuring out the construction industry and throwing them off with having to deal with a woman!  It really does throw some of them off and it makes me smile every time!  

Now if I could just find cute steel toe footwear I would be all set!

Black Friday and Cyber Monday


Most ladies love it, some men love it and kids mostly hate it!!!

I would like to someday take part in a little American Black Friday fun however I am left slightly concerned for our need to have have have!!

I do not think there is anything that I NEED that would get me to stand in line for days in order to get.  I know there is nothing I WANT bad enough to wait inline for days.

I can't even grasp how people can do that, I read that one woman took her two teenage sons with her and waiting in a line up from Wednesday afternoon for a store to open (I hope on Thurdsay evening, can't remember) to buy two TV's and save $700!  She missed Thanksgiving dinner with her family, she made her children miss Thanksgiving with their family!!!!!!!!!!!  My question is, did she NEED those TV's, where they that important???  Her response was that she could spend the rest of the weekend with her family.

Of course, that's what weekends are for!  However, Thanksgiving is apparently a HUGE deal in the US.  Shouldn't that be the big deal????

I also can't understand the need to steal, hit, swear and be generally mean to people while shopping for these great deals.  Isn't it the time to be thankful for family, friends and basically your life!

To those crazy people who ruin the fun.......step back and think about it!

For those people who love to shop and just enjoy the adventure (and a good deal), I say HAPPY SHOPPING!!!!

***side not:  I will be attempting to spend the rest of the day avoiding my cyber monday emails in attepts to not buy things I don't really need!!!!  Wish me luck!
