Thursday’s List: Things I am waiting for that I have no control over and it’s driving me batty!

The title pretty much sums it up.


Friend’s baby to be born. Labor and delivery is such a funny thing. How awesome would it be if we had those turkey buttons on our abdomens that let us know for *sure* when labor was imminent. I don’t believe in induction or scheduling labors because I believe it leads to too many additional interventions thereby leading to the increase in Caesarians, but the waiting game is nerve-wracking and I am not the pregnant one!


We have been waiting for a few months to hear about a possible job promotion for my husband. On Tuesday (Aug 2) night he was told that there would be a conversation on Wednesday (Aug 3.) That convo didn’t happen. So we wait.


I know that the YMCA is calling my references for the swim instructor position I interviewed for, but I don’t think I have ever waited this long to hear about a possible job!


In what is proving to be the WORST KEPT SECRET (because I can’t keep secrets,) I recently took a leap of faith and signed on to be a consultant with Thirty-One. I am so excited about this because I love and believe in the product and I am a bag and organizational addict. But, my first parties aren’t scheduled for another two weeks! (We had to plan around Back-to-School start dates.) So, I’ve been doing a lot of practicing in front of mirrors and the girls, talking my husbands ear off, and visualizing!


In continuing with the Thirty-One theme, I can’t wait to see how I will succeed with this. I have only done direct sales once in my life and it wasn’t pretty. So I have that cloud hanging over my head, but I have faith that this time will be different. I will succeed at this. I will help my family out of our debt and I will have fun doing it! How’s that for personal affirmation?

For my local readers, I am scheduling September parties now! Head to my website to check out the catalog and we can chat. For my out of state readers, I currently have two internet parties running… Just a thought…

Pax Christi!
