I love when something like that happens. It happened on the way to Chico today when we passed some open fields. I could smell the fresh green beans and it reminded me of preparing the beans on a Saturday to be ready to cook on Sunday after church. I think the memory "thing" is why being a teacher and having my own classroom (the first day especially) made school so great for me. I guess you could say I re-lived my first days of school for almost 25 years plus the ones when I was a student. Precious memories!

Yay!!! Have a wonderful weekend, Merry!

I went to the Think Geek Site and also saw a car freshener that is bacon-scented. Didn't Made or Xmas say something about wanting bacon-scented candles?

Bacon Scented Air Freshener

$3.99


Maple Bacon Chocolate Sauce

$9.99 This sounds good to me!!!

It is tough right now, not what I expected. School did not prepare me for the reality of being an independent contractor, in fact it teaches nothing about $. We learn about the reality of the business from our Brokers. I had no idea it called for aggressive sales tactics, my understanding was that it was a service type of sales, and that I would get more leads through my company. Therefore, we are struggling financially, and are having a tough time spending extra money on marketing my business, when there's nothing coming in. Add that to the fact that I haven't worked for 9 months.. there are monthly & annual fees that are very high.
I based my love for real estate on my experiences buying & selling, and didn't know the other side of things. I researched it, but there are laws about not discussing $, so I could only find out so much. I don't know that we can afford the fees while building my business. After I went to work for my broker, I was told that many agents are in the -$ for many years. It doesn't help that I don't know a lot of people here, much of the business is based on referrals. I am looking for supplemental income of my own right now.

Prayers would be appreciated!! =]



Thanks again for thinking of me! I'm trying to stay positive!!

Sorry I didn't quote this yesterday, but you are in my thoughts, Snowflake.
