Move Along

"Speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
Move along, move along like I know you do
And even when your hope is gone
Move along, move along just to make it through
Move along
Move along"

Boy I'm in a mood today...details later.

So, I have a very entrepreneuristic mind. I am constantly thinking about businesses to start. Right now I have a business in virtual assistants. Ok...I dont "have" a business...I have the start of the business. I completed a coaching program that has helped me so much in starting. Now I have to get it off the ground. But...I need funds to do it. I dont need a whole lot of money right now, I just need marketing money. I need to purchase business cards, get my business license, get my 800 number set up, and I will be ready to go. I have everything else ready and set the funds arent unbelievably high that are needed believe it or not. I think at this point Im needing to get together ohhhh about 200 dollars. That is a high estimate. I probably could get away with 100. I have the website set up, I need to do some tweaking and that will be finished.

Now, here is the problem. I am now running my head through what else I wanna do too. I wanna do the virtual assistant business but I also want to do Gift baskets, wedding planning, and travel agent. UGHHHHH.

I have great ideas...I just never know how to execute. The latter 3 businesses require higher funds, and I am not patient! LOL

I have to do research on the wedding planning and travel those are still on the take a deep breath and get going every where else first stage. Right.....

Ohhh I also have the mindset to write my own books for people needing to learn certain programs. Programs such as Office and Act.

As you can tell my mind reels with ideas. I am always thinking about a way to make a dollar. My downfall is I just dont do it.

So today I sent Sunrise off to daycare, I have the day off...Im going to get things done. First I have to clean up my bedroom and work on laundry. Then I am going to make dinner, after picking Sunrise up..>I will sit down and organize and take down notes about doing these businesses....This weekend is going to be spent on finalizing my webpage for the Virtual business and fixing a few things. In the meantime...Im sure I will come up with another business I want to do. That is just the way my mind works.

Why do I want to do all this? I want to be with my daughter more. As a single mom I dont get to spend nearly enough time with her as I should. I wish that I didnt have to leave her at daycare everyday but that is what I have to do for now. Eventually, I look forward to keeping her home with me...and on those real busy days, finding a sitter to watch her for meetings and errands. She is getting to the age now where she can entertain herself for an hour or so at a time. Enough for me to do some work.

Well wish me luck...and hopefully I will have some more ideas when I get back to posting. Maybe tomorrow......

Oh yeah...if you want to contribute to helping my business...let me know. LOL Nah..but I would like to get some business for my virtual assistant business. If you have some work that can be done...Let me know! I am affordable and experienced in many areas. Email me for information!

Evil Sesame Street???

Are you freaking kidding me??? Read this article

So..basically Sesame Street used to be evil. Oscar was a grouch and needed to be on anti depressants, not to mention he lives in a garbage can!! Ohhhh the inhumanity! Bert and Ernie were secretly lovers, Big Bird was hallucinating(probably because he was on LSD), Cookie Monster was an overeater, Kermit and Miss Piggy were having premarital sex though would not admit it, Gordon, Maria, and Bob were pedophiles befriending kids, Mr. Hooper was selling drugs out of his store. Ok so I made a few of these up...but how far can this go?

Do we forget that Sesame Street muppets today are NAKED!!! . Or how about Elmo and his craziness...You know he has to be on cocaine or something to have that much energy right?

I just feel that all the things we read into are carrying it too far. Maybe Im far off base, and if you dont agree with have every right. However, PLEASE PLEASE dont condemn me. If you want to give me your opinion, I welcome it with an open mind...but I expect it too.

I will say this. I do agree that kids seeing Gordon take the lost girl home for milk and cookies, can be dangerous for kids to watch...but the rest of it...Come on! Where are parents now a days?? Do we not talk to our kids and teach them right and wrong? Do we not explain the some of this stuff is off the wall? I think we have handed off our responsibility as parents to the television and the people who make decisions about it. We need to control what our kids watch, and discuss with them the things they watch.

Ok..Im off my soapbox now.

Things I LOVE about being a MOM...

  1. This face...

2. The unconditional kisses, and the kisses that come when you are just standing there and the little walks up to you and kisses your thigh for no reason.

3. Watching her just laugh! OMG my daughters laugh is so contagious. She has the loudest funniest laugh. She truly is the laugh baby.

4. Watching her try to make faces back at you that you make at her.

5. Playing "My blankie" with her...she loves to do is hillarious.

6. Watching her run and try to beat you to the seat she thinks you are going to sit in.

7. Her running up to you and screaming when she sees you come in her daycare room to pick her up.

8. Watching her run in from the other room when she hears the theme from "Blue's Clues", "Melmo"(better known as Elmo)or "Eebee".

9. Laying there watching tv.

10. The proud look in her face when she uses the right sign language sign for the first time.

11. Listening to her try to count.

12. Hearing her say "Maaaamaaaa" Though this could be quite annoying after the 30th time in 1 minute.

13. Singing songs and doing the hand gestures while driving in the car together.

14. Knowing that no matter how much you piss her off......she will love you.(of course..this could change in the teenage years) LOL

15. The way she turns to check on you as she runs ahead. If you are going to slow, how she grabs your hand to help you go

I could go on and on...and probably would, but I must finish getting things done.

Thanks for reading.

Top Reasons It's Hard Being a Single Mom...

I was going to do why I hate being a single mom...but that just isnt right. I dont hate anything about being a mom at all, the single part just makes it more difficult.

I want to preface this by saying my mom helps out alot. When Im cleaning our room, I dont have to keep an eye on Sunrise the whole time. Her playroom is the dining room which is in direct view of the living room, so grandma(or affectionatly called memaw)can see her too. So in between my Sunrise checks, if there is a problem then memaw either deals with it...or yells for me to deal with it. But there are things Memaw doesnt want to do...because well, she is memaw and shouldnt have to.

  1. Money....need I say more?
  2. Getting someone to babysit when Memaw is working or is just too tired from working.
  3. After dinner messes! Having to be the only one responsible for cleaning up the mess when I am just to tired.
  4. Sick days(hers). When she gets sick, I am the one that has to take time off work to be with her. Such as the week she spent in the hospital with RSV, or the time she had rotovirus when she was only 3 months old...another week there.
  5. Sick days(Mine)...Ughhh how do you take care of a 2 year old hanging over the toilet from eating bad bologna.
  6. Sitting in ER alone with a child that has a 104 degree fever vomitting everywhere. Not to mention the loneliness of sitting there. Or someone to put their arms around you to will be ok.
  7. Having someone there to keep an ear out while she is sleeping when you realize at 10:30 at night that you need to get milk, or bread..etc.
  8. When I wanna go right home after work, but have to go pick her up from daycare.
  9. Hearing people say "Oh you are a single mom, I am sorry".
  10. Having noone take a photo of you with your wonderful marvelous child.
  11. Having noone to give you an opinion on what to by, such as Christmas presents, clothing, etc.
  12. Noone to share the feeding duties or the cleaning up duties for that case.
  13. Sleeping in is MISSED!
  14. Having someone there when they told me that Sunrise might have downs when I was pregnant.
  15. The boring days in the hospital for a month prior to having her...noone to visit except Memaw..but she was exhausted all the time from all the work.
  16. Having someone there to say "This is Sunrises daddy".

That is all I can think of right now. As i typed it Im sitting here thinking, wow people will really think Im lazy and terrible....But Im not. I work hard at taking care of my daughter, it just gets a little overwhelming at times.

The next posts will be alot better. Next one will be the things I LOVE about being a mom. Then I will do the things I LOVE about being a SINGLE mom.

For now...much love

Wow...Gotta Catch up...

Well Im back from the dead. I also needed a little break. I have been going through some stuff lately that needed to be dealt with in my head. Im working on it..with the help of a friend's recent support(Thanks Amanda!). Now the rest of dealing with it is on me.

Second...If anyone has any good blogs to read for a single mom... or just a mother...let me know. (I already raided your bloglines Amanda..LOL). I love reading stuff..and I guess I shouldnt just say single can be on anything...Just please PLEASE dont bog me down with anything political. To me, reading politic blogs is boring(Im not saying they are boring...just that they are to me). Oh yeah, anyone have a clue how to search blogs?? Im tired of trying to do a search. The only way I can think is to search on google. Then again, hmmmm maybe bloglines has a search.

I will post today or tomorrow the top reasons I love being a mom...Then Im going to post the top reasons I love being a SINGLE mom. Still debating on whether I wanna post why I dont like being a single mom, I dont wanna bring myself down. Hmmmm maybe I will but do that first then pick myself up with the other 2 blogs.

Mechanic has gotten emergency custody of his daughter. Thank God...that child needed to get out of her mom's house. They had an interview with CPS yesterday, and let's just say it looks real good that she will be staying where she is. I dont want to get into this much here...after all is said and done, I will fill you in. (Though I dont think many read my blog, just 1).

Ok...I just wanted to stop in for a sec....I'll be back in a bit to work on my top reasons of something.

I'll be back.....

but right now I have been sick. I have bronchitis with pneumonia indications and a few other things. I was in ER last Thursday with them telling me that they were letting me go home, but just barely.

I have been working on some blogs in my head...including things that are great about being a single mom..and things that I hate about being a single mom. Also, I am going to copy off snow and do 10 random things you didnt know about me.

But for now...Im going to take a nap with sunrise(who is also sick)...hopefully I'll feel up to blogging tomorrow, if not tomorrow..Hopefully sometime in the next few days.
