Blog Dare - Day 3 in March - What if you didn't have to worry about...

Today's blog dare is what if you didn't have to worry about...well that list is long to say the least!
First thing that came to my mind is my children's health. If I didn't have to worry about that, then I realized that they are pretty healthy and lucky kids considering some of the kids that are going through a lot more in a little time then my kids have in all there lives and they are teens.
So then I thought the next thing, what if I didn't have to worry about ... Well money of course came to mind...if I didn't have that to worry about I would still work because working keeps me busy and I can't stand just to sit and do nothing these days! When the kids were younger I was ok with not having a job out or at home because they were my world, still are but its different now because they are teens and can handle thereselves..back in the day I was there for them tending to them and helping them..these days they don't need me like they use to so I work and keep myself I don't know that I wouldn't like not having to worry about money so much because that worries me that I might not work as much or as hard to get things that we want and need...So next lol on my list would be if I didn't have to worry about others being on the street and being abused and treated so badly...its so sad to hear about stories and not sure where to go or what to do to help or even sure if there is anything I can do?
I was an abused child and married into another abusive situation so if I didn't have to worry about all the people and children especially going through all the abuse and just meanness that this country and world has come too that would be so much better...I wish that this country would straighten up with people's attitudes and such but it seems like the economy has just made people all that more stressed and plum crazy to put it nicely!
Lots of things on my mind..wish I didn't have to worry about should be felt and that should be a great thing but sometimes it just feels like its a one way street and that sucks!

Blog Dare - Day 2 March - Who is your inspiration?

Who is your inspiration?  My inspiration come from each of my kids. My friends are also my inspiration without each of them being a part of my life inspiring me in ways that I didn't know they could. I love each of my friends that are always there to support me and inspire me to keep moving forward towards whatever my goal is...My kids do the same thing in different ways  They are really great young adults..I didn't do to bad of a job raising four very intelligent and great teenagers. Its just chaos now and again since there is FOUR of them!! LOL..3 boys and 1 girl is quite the handful!

Take A Leap Around The Blogosphere: Me In Ten Questions

Thank you for telling me about this blog hop Found the Marbles

This Leap Day I got together with several other bloggers for a Leap around the Blogosphere.  It is just a fun way for readers to get to know us better by answering ten questions about ourselves.  If you want to play along, add your answers in the comments below or create a post with your answers and add it to the linky below.  Here goes:
  1. My childhood nickname was Si-Si (pronounced S and then i ) yea my first cousin/female cousin couldn't say my name and she started calling me si si instead of Lisa :) Stuck with me for a little while.
  2. If you want to spoil me rotten, buy me any office things!! I love my home office!!
  3. The television character I most identify with is hmm the first one that came to mind lol is Peggy Bundy from Married With Children lol
  4. If I had a whole day to go shopping and money to spend, I would go to Sams and any office store that I see on the way! I love my Staples and Office Depot and Office Max!! Love em! I would be buying a ton of office stuff!
  5. The most wild and crazy thing I have ever done (that I can admit to publicly) is back in high school. I wasn't that wild and crazy but I did skip school a few times and had fun with my friends! Shame on me I know!! :)
  6. The one thing on my bucket list that I am most eager to do is either go to Paris, France or England. I would love to see the royal palace :)
  7. My family will always be loyal to sadly Walmart probably!!
  8. If I could spend a day with a celebrity I would choose oh wow I have a few of them but my frist choice would be Julia Roberts, then right in line with her is Richard Gere, Jon Bon Jovi, Bret Michaels and a few others..I love em all!!
  9. In my opinion, the best invention in the history of the world is pen and paper! LOL without those two things I would of been nutty years ago!! I use to penpal all the time and write in my journal and these days it seems like nothing but typing in my personal blogging does that but it still helps me get things out of my mind and relaxes me :)
  10. When life hands me lemons, I make lemon-aide :) I love lemon-aide, delicious!

Ashton Kutcher - hmm...

Hmm ok well I like Ashton Kutcher as an actor, always thought that he was a "good guy" and a great actor, but here lately with the thing with Demi, I just don't know anymore. I like him in all the movies that I've seen him in, but the way that he cheated on her and I know that we don't know all of it and that its a 2 way street etc and don't know what goes on behind closed doors and we shouldn't know that but I am just more upset I think that he cheated on her and on there anniversary!! Really?? That was just a crappy thing to do for Anyone to do his wife and especially for a celebrity to do his wife that way just sucks! I am disappointed in him. I have to say that I watched the first "Two and a Half Men" show with Ashton in it and I liked it, it was funny, I thought that he had and still has some big shoes to fill because I love Charlie Sheen and him in the show .. I wish that he was still in it, anyway, after all this crap with Ashton cheating I haven't watched his show again...I wish him the best of luck, wish everyone that but right now I don't think that its helping Demi with all that shes going through to see articles with Ashton in them with a woman that does have similarities so to speak to Demi! I love Demi and I think that is why I haven't watched to much of Ashton anymore because of the way that he did her...she has her own issues too but dang it it was him that cheated and that sucks, I know I've been cheated on too!
Anyway just felt like venting and stating my opinion about him...and here is the article and then at the bottom is a pic of the two ladies, the one lady that he was seen with recently at a party and Demi next to her...

Blog Dare - Day 29 - I am my own worst enemy...

I am my own worst enemy when it comes too working at home. I pour myself into my work every minute that I can. I have been doing better so that when the kids come in  from home I will be done with work, I used to work later into the evening around 5 or so and then start supper and not have that much extra time with the kids to just talk and spend time with them but now I have changed and my work will stop no later then 4. I am my own worst enemy when it comes to working because I want to make life for my kids better with me working hard and getting a better career and so forth. 

I got hired on as a CSR for a great company not too long ago and Friday I got offered a manager's position and I accepted it so now its " official". I am still working here at home in my home office and I am still working the hours that I choose, unless one of my workers that I am managing needs help with something or can't complete something or whatever it may be, then that is the only time that I will step in and work when my kids are at home. They are my first priority, they always have been but I tend  to be a workaholic!!

A beautiful view from my window would be a waterfall. That would be so relaxing..a waterfall and nice trees...I would love that to be a view from my window. I love trees and nature and wouldn't mind living more outside of the town/city rather in the midst of it.

Ways to make money at home

So what are some ways that you make money at home? Or do you even care about making money at home?
I just thought I would ask and try to get some opinions and see how many of us out there love to stay at home and make money.
I have been fortunate enough to always of stayed home since I got married and had kids. I have been working here at home for over 10 years and mostly dealing in the customer service field. And yes that takes a ton of patience to deal with customers/clients calling in and tearing you up when they are charged too much for something or maybe they didn't receive anything or didn't receive what they ordered etc so yea it takes a lot to be on the other end of the phone when you have a complaint to file with any company. I love that kind of work and have been on both ends the receiving end and the griping end!
I recently got offered a managers position and I took it for the same company that hired me on as a CSR (customer service rep) and while I am a little nervous about having my own team to take care of and help I am so thrilled about having the official title of a "Manager" and getting paid for it while working here in my home office. I love it!
So what do you do at home to make money? Do you have your own business? Run a business? Share what you do  Have a great evening.
