Hey guys! I hope all is well in your land. Here are some things that I have been up to lately or just news that I have been meaning to write about.
Happy Halloween and Happy Birthday to my sister, Laura!
I am going to my parents’ house tonight to take my niece trick-or-treating. So fun. She is going as Super Girl. I will try and get a pic.
I did my American duty and voted
Let’s be honest, both candidates are not the best but I believe in one party 85% so I voted for that person. We shall see how the election goes.
Picnic in the Park
We went to church last weekend and afterwards had an impromptu picnic in the park.
A friend gave me a big bag of pecans from her yard and I brought them over to my parent’s house to crack them. We convinced my grandmother via Facebook to make us a pecan pie. She said “How can I say no with all of these witnesses”. LOL. That was our plan! :)
I sold my first eBook on my 5K planning site. I am not sure if I mentioned that I was making a website based on this post that sells an eBook on it. My first one sold the other day and I was ecstatic! I looked at my phone and noticed a PayPal logo on the notifications and wasn’t sure why. I got a very nice surprise when I opened it and saw that my first copy of my eBook sold!!!!!!
I am saddened to hear that Richard Simmons is closing his L.A. Studio, Slimmons, in November. I am so glad that I checked it off my bucket list when I did.
Ice Cream Sandwich
I am on a diet (25 lbs gone!) and noticed that this bench at work looks exactly like an ice cream sandwich. The mind plays tricks on you when you aren’t getting sugar! :) #youknowyouareonadietwhen
Garage Sale Success
We had a garage sale at my parents’ house and made $375! Well, I made $10 and my parents made $365. I woke up at 4 am and was going non-stop until 1:30 pm, when I promptly took a nap. I really love garage sales! #myparentshavealotofcrap
Remember way back when LinkedIn contacted me about a class-action lawsuit? Well, apparently they won and had to pay out. I received a total of $20.43 that was promptly put in my savings account. #savingforahouse
Speaking of savings, I am still doing mystery shops for extra $$! (Go to this post for a list of the reputable companies I have used.) I got an email from Sinclair about getting a $15 (plus up to $10 reimbursement for food) bonus for a pizza shop in my area that is on the way home. I signed up because hey, who wouldn’t want $15 for pizza! Pizza is not on my diet plan (cheese) so my plan was to give it to a homeless person on the street but I could not find any! It was a Friday night so maybe they all went to do something else. Anyway, $15!
Also, check out Inbox Dollars to sign up for some surveys. It is so easy to make money for them. I have made $90 total but about $30 each time-usually about twice a year. I know it isn’t too much, but if you sign up you can make money before Christmas and have some stocking stuffer $$.
