Love to grow my business

So, I have this new site that has unique boutique kids items for sale. I have really wanted to start branching it out and trying to grow my business so more and maybe have some more items for sale. Maybe even have some other WAHM items to list as well. But, I don't think I could keep up with everything. I have been reading up on some of the live chat programs out there though. That might be the answer to my customer service issue. What do you think?

Not sure if I am ready

Sometimes I think about growing my home based business and maybe even getting some call center services to help me take the calls so that I can just concentrate on making my product. I know that a lot of small businesses have been able to grow by doing this. I just don't know if I am ready to do it yet or not.

Free Snuggie!

I just came across this really great deal where you sign up to do a phone survey and you get a free Snuggie. And the best part is, that you don't have to do the phone survey until the Snuggie arrives:) The projected time of arrival for the Snuggie is 6 weeks, so it might be here in time for a free Christmas present for someone on your list (or for yourself:) They also have 3 color choices which I thought was cool.
So don't wait to sign up. They may take this offer down once they have a certain number of people to do surveys.

Please copy and paste the link below into a browser. Sometimes if too many people just click on the link, it won't work anymore. And the Snuggie offer is on the top right side.

Have fun and come back and post when you get yours:)

Vehical Accident

About 4 years ago, I got rear ended 2 times within a month. My car got totaled (it was only 5 years old and I had paid it of:( I also got injured pretty bad (neck, lower back and my right foot.) Both times, I was at a red light and the people behind me were not paying attention. The first one was a high school girl that fell asleep driving herself and her little sister to school (second accident for her by the way...) The second one was a Dodge heavy work truck four door with the yellow lights on the top of it. I was sitting at a light about to turn right and saw a truck to my left blow through a red light just as my light turned green so I sat at the light so I wouldn't get Tboned. The big Dodge that was coming up behind me never stopped! Just hit me and my natural reaction was to hit my break so that I wouldn't end up in the intersection and really get hit...Anyway...he was late to work and not paying attention. He gave false insurance information and it was just a nightmare. I had to go to lots of physical therapy and I am still in pain 4 years later. I really wish that I had contacted Seattle personal injury attorneys to help me out. ugh!

Updating our home

We live in a mid 70s ranch style home. With that being said, most of the plumbing, cabinets etc are still original. I would really love to update our house so that it does feel like a newer home but without the high mortgage payment. One of the things that my husband and I have been talking about doing, is getting some discount faucets for both the kitchen and the bathrooms. Ours look so old and scummy right now. No matter how much I scrub them, they still look dull and have soap scum from years of someone not taking very good care of them. I can't wait until we replace them!

Wendy's Free Single Burger

Wendys has started a new program pretty much like Burger King's Free Whopper Survey. When you go to Wendys next time, make sure to save your receipt. On the back of it, there will be an 800 number to call to do a survey and they will give you a code to write on your receipt so that you can take it in next time you visit and they will give you a free single burger. I think this is awesome! I have done this many times with Burger King, but now this makes it cheaper for me to got to Wendy's as well. Yeah!

I don't want to look old!

I have noticed that I am starting to look a little older lately. The place that I have been noticing it the most is right around my eyes. I am starting to get a little of the crows feet going on (UGH!) So, I have started trying to find the best eye cream for wrinkles. I mean, just a couple of years ago, I bought a lottery ticket and I got carded! I know that will probably never, ever happen again, but I would like to at least try to keep my aging to a minimum like maybe try to keep it where it is at right now for a while:)

My silly boy

My 5 year old really wants our family to get a van or a truck. He has already decided exactly what he wants us to get too. For a van, he said that he wants one with a table and a TV and DVD player (why don't you through in a wii while you are at it too?) lol And then for a truck, he wants us to get a four door jacked up like a Monster Truck and wants it to have some really nice and shiny grill guards on the front of it. I think it is funny how kids think about things like that sometimes.
