Mondays.......Need I say More??

Mondays are by far my least favorite day of the week. Trying to get myself and the rest of the family back into the weekly schedule is challenging to say the least. I told myself I was going to get the house nice and clean and really put a dent in my freelance work. Well neither of those goals got accomplished today. I started the morning off ready to clean and my Dyson decided it didn't want to vacuum. I'm not sure what is wrong it but I'm very annoyed seeing that I paid almost $500 for it. Needless to say I'm not impressed with my Dyson and I can not wait to find another vacuum. We are a family of five with two animals so I need a vacuum that has some real suction!!!!

I'm still working on getting my freelance work done.....I need a routine! I really need to just buckle down and stick to a schedule. Having a 18 month old daughter at home with me all day makes writing articles a little challenging.

On a good note I did come across a new work at home job lead. I found a company by the name of SameSpeak that looks very promising. Basically the company helps people learn the English language. The "students" receive audio books and after they study their audio books they log in to practice the words with a language coach (me). The only requirements for this job are being a U.S. Citizen, 16 years of age, a valid PayPal account, Skype (Free Version) and a headset. SameSpeak is a great job for teenagers, stay at home parents and anyone else looking to earn extra income.

September is Almost Here!

September is almost here and it is time for me to really ramp up my writing efforts. I'm setting a goal of $1000 for the month of September. I'm really hoping that I can obtain this goal. Raising three kids and running a household seems to hold me back from making the money that I want. My biggest challenge is going to be getting organized. I feel like I spend most of my day cleaning the house because the kids are always making messes! Well here is to making at least $1k during the month of September!!!!

My first journey to blogging

It seems that now-a-days everyone is blogging. I do not know much about blogging but figured I would give it a go! This is going to be a learning experience for me and I hope everyone will be patient with me while I learn the ropes. If you have any feedback or blogging advice feel free to give it to me.

A little bit about me....I'm thirty years old and I live in California. I live in a small town in the Tahoe National Forest. I have three amazing children ages 13, 5 and 18 months old. I also have an amazing fiance hopefully that title will change to husband soon!!!! I work from home and love every second of it.  I have been working from home for the past six years. I enjoy cooking, reading, traveling, shopping, watching reality TV and learning new ways to reduce our household budget.
