My chore jar is working out great. I look forward to it every morning when I take my vitamins. I wish I'd thought of this earlier because this has become a wonderful experience for me. I did little things even though it doesn't take me no longer than 20 to 30 minutes a day. I feel good about myself that I am trying to clean my house and keep it up during the week. I filled out my chore cards for next week this morning. I won't do any chores on Good Friday or Easter Sunday because that is the Lord's time. I will be with my family on those days and my house will be clean before they get here.
I didn't give up anything for Lent this year because I don't believe like that anymore. I was never a good Catholic anyway but I am a great Christian Methodist.
I have been doing two chore cards on Saturdays and Sundays this month in honor of Easter. I also enjoy it and I thought this was a good way to show my love for Christ by doing a little extra work.
I made my first sale on Watkins yesterday. My friend Michelle wanted to order four bottles of their famous vanilla. I hope this works out for me because I really like doing this and I need to make a little extra money to help with bills this summer. I hope to do Arbonne as well. It's a great company and the rewards will be great if I can get into the right circle and find some good people to buy from me. I decided to sell Watkins because the started up is fairly inexpensive and the product sell itself. I want to sell make up like Mary Kay or BeautiControl and possibly Tupperware if I can get in at a good price.
I am worried about this economy and the new Obamacare tax that will go into effect in October. I doubt that Saf T Cart will be able to afford health insurance for their employees or they would've offered it by now. I'm going to have to look for another job that has benefits and a little more money just to make a living. Obama has ruined this country and I think the Democrats are realizing it. Well I say the Democrats who work are realizing it. The ones who don't work have no idea what's going on and they could care less.
I have been gloomy since November about my job, this country ,extra taxes, and making a living in general. I don't have a lot of bills like most people do because everything I have is paid for. I do have a Walmart credit card that I need to get paid off and then I will be basically debt-free other than basic living expenses. I will be glad when I get my loan paid off at work too. I think I owe around $300 now.
I decided to go on and sell the camper this morning. Jessica needs that money more than anyone. She wants to do something with herself and get an education so she won't have to do without when she grows up. I know that my brother can afford to put her through Mississippi State so I'm going to help her as much as I can. I'm so thankful that she is smart and did get a partial scholarship. I'm so proud of her!
I watch Little House on the Prairie because it reminds me of my childhood when my daddy was alive and it also gives me ideas on living with very little and still thriving. I love the show because it is great and I've learned so much. They lived back in the pioneer days without electricity, gas, automobiles, and fancy things. I want to live like that one day and still thrive. I really don't care about material things even though I have a lot of them.
I bought the camper to use if I ever have to leave this area and find a better job. I would at least have a place to live and it is paid for. I don't mind living in the 27 foot camper because it is a nice self-contained and in excellent shape. My goal is to move to the Ozarks and make Arkansas my home so I can make a better living for myself and have nice things. I'm only in the Mississippi Delta because of my family because they need me right now.
I don't think I could kill animals for food. That is my only problem with being self sufficient and they live a self-contained life. I could do without electricity and automobile gas if I had firewood, a rechargeable car that ran off of solar power, and a good horse. I think I would be much happier like that than I am now.
