Its days like today that give you a hard slap and remind you that life is fleeting and to be grateful for what you do have. It’s not a cliche. It’s just the truth. Hearing of Kobe Bryant’s passing along with his 13 year old daughter and the others on that helicopter is a shock felt worldwide. For us it’s the passing of a sports icon. But for his loved ones, it’s a loss that will be felt longer than any of us would like to imagine. For the families of the other yet unnamed victims, it’s a tragedy just as painful. Fame and money don’t matter when you’re in pain. But it does bring home the point that none of us are untouchable. So while we are able we must really cherish what we have or rather who we have. It can all be gone in an instant.
Be grateful. Say I love you. Celebrate your loved ones.
I’ve never been very interested in writing product/service
reviews. I may have done one or two during the lifetime of this blog. But I know
there are many parents out there that are either interested in or have found
their niche as an entrepreneur. For those of you that are selling products and
are looking to grow your business, then the Wholesale Academy is for you.
See below for a description of this 8-week course led by a dynamic and passionate business coach who has extensive experience in the retail industry and can show you the ins and outs of getting your products into stores. I’ve worked in retail for 15+ years, and have seen many smaller businesses struggle with the process that they are required to master in order to have maybe 1 or 2 of their items placed in a store planogram. But with the Wholesale Academy, you will learn how to not only master this process but gain access to different markets.

It’s always a bit stressful, even when they’re no longer toddlers. You still worry that they have everything they might need. Trying not to over pack or overthink it all. For me, its always a struggle. Then the moment of dismay when you realize you’ve forgotten something “essential”.
The Soccer Diva will be 13 next year. I told her she’s doing all her own packing next time. She looked at me like I was crazy. Baby girl still has a way to go. But they did pack their own carry on bag, so we’re half way there…?
Now if they could pay for their own plane tickets…
The first week of Summer break is now behind us. I was able to work from home this week. My husband thinks that this should be said with air quotes as if I do no work. I wish he was right. Baby Girl thought staying home with mom was going to be filled with amazing adventures. Instead it was filled with “Just give Mommy 20 more minutes, ” and “We need to hurry, because I have to get back to work “. I could see it happening but I still needed to get my work done. There were also 2 visits to the walk in clinic for both girls. There were errands to run that I never have time to do.
So today, I promised her that we would go to the splash pad. After 2 hours sitting in the walk in clinic and rushing home to check emails and trying to figure out lunch or at least a snack until lunch…we finally made it to the splash pad. There was the promise of a thunderstorm but we made it home just in time.
It was a bit tricky at times and there were moments of frustration, but the week turned out fairly well. Wish I could CD work from home more often.
But that was only week one. I could be delirious due to the amazing weather…
