Today is a typical Iowa summer day...hot and humid...only it's not really summer yet! It's only suppose to last a couple of days and then be back in the 70's where I like it! I got to go out to lunch with my mom today. We ate at Applebee's. I tried the Margarita Queso Chicken and Shrimp....dee-licious!

My youngest sister found me a few jars the other day. They cost me $2.00 each but they came with the zinc lid on them so I can still sell the lids separately for $1.00 each. I counted these 8 jars as costing me the $16 now though so the lids will be free and clear. She also got me 2 half gallon jars for $2.00 each with lids so I have them for sale also.

I went to the eye doctor yesterday and the girl that checked me in was updating my information. Apparently last time I had told them that I was self-employed so she asked me if I still was and she asked what I did so I told her I sell on Ebay and Etsy. She said, "So you get to stay home and work? How neat!" I'm pretty sure she thought what a lot of people think...that working from home is the life of luxury! I am glad that I can do this from home though. I like to be home! I like to be with my kids. So glad I can do it! I just really need to focus on getting my store up to 500 or 1000 items! I just keep hovering around 100. Gotta focus!
Thanks for stopping by! ~~Pam
