Well month end is upon me and I am trying to figure out which way is top from bottom. I have booked myself solid. We are leaving for Disneyland in 2 days, I have 2 kids packed and 1 to go as well as myself. I also have a gal coming to my house today for 4 hours to organize a playroom for our family. I am not sure but for some reason I felt like I could squeeze one more thing in this week. This involved moving all the toys to the "playroom" and moving my stuff to side shelves, buying a table cloth and a curtain. I don't think the curtain is going to happen. Oh by the way I am volunteering in my daughter's class today, and lets not forget that it is a half day allowing me to get only half my to do list done.

Holy smokes! Today was a crazy day. Up and out the door by 9 I first dropped off my 2 kids +one then off to another school dropped off another +one, then off to the YMCA. I got there in record timing and realized I needed to sprint on the treadmill if I was hoping to get in the 3 miles I was looking for in. So, off and running then I came to a screeching halt grabbed Danny from childcare and threw him into the pool for swim lessons. I quickly changed jumped in the pool as well swam for a third of a mile then out and watched Danny finish his lesson. My plan for the day was a good work out come home pick up the house and then off to the Rocket Bakery to do some work.
Well, I got home and I was just about to jump in the shower when the doorbell rings. It is my father-in-law. He arrived 30 minutes early to watch my son. So no shower, pull my hair back throw on some clothes and out the door I go. Of course before getting my work done I have to go back to the Y because I had left Danny's coat in the locker and had to drop off my ballots at the library that had been sitting there for 2 weeks ready to go but of course today is the deadline. While at the library I thought I would recheck out the Shreck DVD that we checked out 2 weeks ago but never got the DVD and of course with every intention of going back to get it but now it was due. I went inside asked to renew it and get the DVD but of course there is a hold on it so I have to return it. Maybe the kids won't notice. Finally, I get that done and I am feeling okay about how this day just might turn out. I was feeling a little overwhelmed but I drove onto the Rocket Bakery and notice all these people sitting at the tables looking at me eating cake and 1 person standing up facing them. I tried to quietly look around and then I notice they are having a going away party for one of the workers. I felt a little bit like an intruder, I went to a table in the corner went to the counter to order and I didn't see anyone I thought the girl is having her party should I wait? Should I go to my table? I didn't want to be rude, thankfully someone else appeared and took my order. Then I see a couple gals I recognize chat for a few then off to work. I had a list of contacts to make and I felt good when I left. I had set 2 appointments, several messages and of course another to do list for tomorrow. Overall stressful but good. All in all a good day

Can I say how excited I am. I have had 2 people and dear friends join my team in these last 2 weeks. This snow ball I have been pushing up hill is starting to gain a little momentum. January was a record month for me and now I'll break January with February! I am planning to travel to Seattle this month and help my business partner Stacey launch her visit and I hope to meet some others while I am there. I am hoping to get Angie my other dear friend and business partner up and running soon. Giddy up girls let's go get 'em.

* Call 15 or meet new people
* Be on training call or listen to the replay
* Be positive about my business and don't over think it
* Don't let my fears of what people think get in my way. (this one will be big but once I get on a roll I'll be alright)
*stay motivated be around positive people and energy.
Okay I think that is plenty, remember I just got back from great training and still all ramped up! I'll report later in the week how I am doing. I do have a coffee appt set already for Monday hope it goes well.

I am a mother of 3, wife of 1, independent consultant with Rodan and Fields, taxi cab driver, nurse, doctor, psychiatrist, counselor, friend, sister, house cleaner (really bad one), baker, cook, story teller, camp fire leader, cheer coach, soccer coach, runner, swimmer, biker, and an accountant just to list a few. I am often referred to as a Jane of all trades. Growing up I roofed houses, installed sprinkler systems. In high school I mastered the grill and the art of making sandwiches at Wendy's where I met my one and only at the Frosty station. I remember he was so hot, he had his hair feathered back and his long hair tucked up into his hat, both ears pierced. Man was he something else. After graduating from Washington State University I moved into retail management, then banking, then loans, next healthcare. Recently my Rodan and Fields business has taken off and I have left the hospital and started working this as my main job. I love it, I work when I want and don't forget I have the greatest boss ever....oh, that's right it's me!
Today I sit at the Rocket Bakery trying to figure out how will I conquer the world. I swam this morning and durning my swim all I could think about was what will my blog name be... well, after polling several people and names ranging from ann penfield, ordinary girl, plane Jane, life changer, I decided on "Once Upon a Wrinkle. In my two hours I have been here I have started one blog and closed it to open another. I have decided this one will be it and I'll update it weekly if not more. I am hoping to blog about my goals, fears, business plans, and everything else between here and the sun. So, stay tuned.
