Wine & Cheese ~ 86th Serving

wineandcheese2Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times. I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs. I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well. I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal. If you’d like to read the past editions of Wine & Cheese just click HERE for all of the past postings. Sit back and join me now for the 86th serving of some whine and cheese!

😦  Finding myself unemployed just sucked.  Yes, I was pissed.  Yes, I did let them know how I felt about it.  Yes, it is water under the bridge today.

😦  I was all set to dive into my business yesterday, but my body had other plans.  I woke up all night after going to bed Monday, puking my brains out.  I am pretty sure that based on how sore I am, my body was trying to expel my toes inside out by way of my mouth.  Thankfully, living here with the other Divas who happen to be nurses, they had just the thing to stop the unstoppable vomiting and I slept most of the day. UGH.  This “life is all about how you handle plan B” stuff is getting old fast.

😦  My poor dog is so confused.  She thinks every time I go to leave the house now, that it is time to head to work.  She doesn’t understand that we now work from home.  She is no doubt missing all of the attention and treats she got in the office.  Poor baby.  😦


🙂  I am now a full time Avon Lady.  I LOVE it.  I recovered from my virus enough to hit the ground running today and I’m praying my efforts pay off.  I meet my district sales manager for lunch tomorrow and I’m sure I can pick her brain for help.  She rocks and is excited for me that I am able to commit full time now.

🙂  Life IS all about how we handle Plan B and my attitude is great.  I see opportunity now to work for me, and make myself the one who is rich and not someone else.  My commissions are at 40% right now so that is worth my time.  I’m pushing for the 50% margin and for the bigger better team under me.  I’m SO excited.

🙂  My weight has continued to drop.  I haven’t seen the current number on the scale in years.  I’m happy about it and motivated.  Probably the one good thing that came from being sick is my appetite dropped off but that just means I can maintain better control of it now.


Who hasn’t had a day like this, despite folks thinking we look better without makeup?
