Get it in time!

If you are giving the gift of wellness this year for Christmas, this week is the time to take action in order to have your wellness box arrive in time for Christmas.

The Premium Starter Kit is such a great gift! 11 bottles of oils, Ningxia Red, samples, literature. As well as the gift of a community to support you in your wellness journey. Start ditching and switching toxin-filled products from your home and go the natural route with Young Living essential oils and products. It’s the best thing I’ve done for our family!

It’s time!

It’s time. It’s time for me to stop cleaning for other people.

I have been cleaning for a living for a lot of years. I worked as a school custodian at the Catholic elementary school that both of my boys attended. When Adam moved on to high school, I stayed as the custodian for a few more months. And then it was time to move on and let another mom take over.

Moving on, for me, meant working for myself. I started cleaning houses again (I had done this in the past). I built up a nice client base and worked part time, making my own schedule. It was great! I clean for great people, and it has truly been a pleasure getting to know new friends. I also clean for two family members.

My hands and my knees have been bothering me for some time. The knuckles on myΒ  hands are red and swollen and stiff after a day of cleaning. I have osteoarthritis in both my hands and both of my knees. It’s bad enough now that I don’t want to do anything around my own house after cleaning at another house. My hands hurt. It’s not even just the cleaning anymore. It hurts to do any writing, it hurt to rake the leaves this fall. It hurts to shovel. It just hurts.

So, it’s time. I gave my cleaning clients notice way back in October. I wanted them to have as much time as possible to find a replacement for me, a process which I would, of course, help facilitate. And now, it’s almost here. I have 6 days of cleaning left. This week will be the first week of lasts. Last time cleaning for three different people. And next week will be the last time cleaning for the other three. I finished for one other person a few weeks ago who was a once a month cleaning job.

I will miss helping these people keep their homes clean. But, I am truly grateful for new friendships. And for how amazingly supportive they have all been. I have been blessed!

My hands and knees will appreciate less wear and tear from all that cleaning. I’m hoping that by giving up my cleaning jobs, I will have slowed down a bit the progression of the osteoarthritis. I know it won’t ever go away, and I know it will get worse, but, maybe, it will slow down now.

So what’s in store for me now? Well, first, I can handle things around my own home a little better. And second, I will be building my Young Living business. I am a #diamondrising. I am excited to see what the future holds.

I’m Ready

So, I did it! I bought some skis. After renting skis and boots last season, I decided to buy my own this year. It’s pricey to ski if you have to rent skis and boots on top of paying for the lift ticket.

I went with a used pair of skis. I figure until I get a whole lot better (and braver) used will work for me for now. I got new poles to go with them.

And then I also got new ski boots. Renting ski boots kind of grosses me out! lol So I splurged just a bit and got new boots. The skis have been adjusted to fit me and my boots, and Adam helped me wax them, so I’m good to go. Now, when we get to the slopes, I can get ready at the car like Adam does with his snowboard gear. We only have to pay for lift tickets now.

It snowed here today, just a dusting. But, it was pretty. And, it’s cold. So, the ski resorts are open. A little more snow coming on Saturday.

Our first trip to slopes this season will hopefully happen next week.

It’s What’s For Dinner

I made a recipe today for dinner that I’ve made once before. It’s a pasta recipe, never a favorite for Adam. I think Tim will enjoy the leftovers.Β  But, I love pasta and it’s a cold, drizzly day here today, so it seemed like a perfect day for pasta.

One Pot Pizza Tortellini Bake

It’s super easy to make, using only one pan. I used a cast iron skillet and followed the recipe. I also made some garlic breadsticks to go with it. This stuff is so good! I added pepperoni to one half, I’m not much of a pepperoni fan. And I put sliced olives only on a small portion. I love olives but no one else does.

Give it a try. It’s delicious!

November Promos

Have you seen the Essential Rewards promos from Young Living for November? Holy cow! It’s a great time to be on essential rewards!

If you don’t know, Essential Rewards is the auto-ship program that Young Living offers. You earn free product for different spending levels. But, you also earn points back toward even more free product. Right now, I have more than 150 points that I can spend on free product. So, basically, I have $150 to spend on free stuff! Who doesn’t love free stuff, right?

Great stuff right there!

Here is a graphic explaining how essential rewards works. I love to use essential rewards to stock up on all the products I use regularly, instead of buying them at the store and not getting rewarded. I don’t have to leave my house, I shop online and the box is delivered to my doorstep. Easy peasy!

If you have questions about Young Living, or Essential Rewards and how you can get your hands on all these promos, message me at
