It's a good thing I make notes and really try to pay attention to things. I looked at my calendar yesterday to realize that I had a three-hour Avon meeting right after work.
On my way to the meeting, my brake pedal started squeaking again. I just got the back brakes put on the car on August 19 and had already had the car back twice: once to put the ordered correct brakes on and once to replace the new brake drum that was warping. I couldn't tell if the rain had anything to do with the issue or not, but I knew that I had to go back to the shop first thing this morning. The guy put some lube on the brakes and pedal and sent me on my way. Now I'm going to be paranoid about them for awhile.
The Avon meeting was good - just three hours long. I got to see the new things coming out for Christmas (cute stuff including clothes!). I got to "spin the wheel" for three prizes for having three recruits (who, by the way, aren't putting orders in most of the time; therefore not helping me make money - but that's another story.) I also won a raffle prize. I got to order the new night cream Anew Genics at a big discount. THIS STUFF IS FANTASTIC and I am NOT one to say that. I've used a sample for about four nights now and can really see a difference in my face. I also ordered a talking stuffed animal for my mother for her birthday at a discount. So, all in all, the meeting was successful even though I was stressed about my brakes.
My day today started at the shop, then went to my daughter's bank to make a deposit for her. Then, I delivered one Avon order. When I went to deliver my last Avon order, the lady had forgotten to bring her checkbook to work, so I'll have to go back on Monday when she's working.
Then I got to run back home to grab some cleaning supplies and picked up my mother. We cleaned a friend of hers' house and made a quick, much needed, small amount of money. I felt like a dust bunny by the time I left, though.
When I dropped my mother off, she asked me to take a look at her checkbook. Found a couple things for her, made a few phone calls for her, but never could get the checkbook to balance. She's the only person I know that can get it really screwed up. I can not figure it out!
I did get to fit in going to the grocery store, cleaned my car and got my hair cut.
All this took longer than I had originally intended. So, I am now home doing laundry, cleaning house and attempting to do some of the other stuff that I wanted to accomplish today. I can probably say I will sleep well tonight, but I can't say that I've been bored the last couple days.
