Update

Posted by Vicki on Aug 30, 2010

Well here I am this morning trying to get caught up with my life. I’ve been sick lately, so I’ve let some work slide, housework slide, and well, just about everything really.

Once I get caught up on work I can get that book reviewed for Susan Marlow, and also get the website done that I’ve been working on.

I need to get the house-work caught up as well, but I don’t know if that’s going to happen today or not…Really tired, and pretty busy with other things.


Kitchen Blinds

Posted by Vicki on Aug 30, 2010

My kitchen blinds are in serious need of help. They were here when we moved in, and they are dirty and nasty, and have seen better days as well. I’m not a big fan of blinds, but I figure if you are going to buy them, at least make sure you don’t buy the cheap ones that bend and brake if you look at them wrong!!

I always seem to have problems with raising and lowering them….they work fine for awhile, but then I start having problems getting them to work.


Sales Jobs

Posted by Vicki on Aug 30, 2010

I’m not sure I would be any good at sales jobs or not. I’ve never had a job like that, aside from being a waitress. As a waitress you are pretty guarenteed a sale though, so it’s just a matter of what you sell and how much. That’s easy….

Sales jobs like selling from a catalog or something is completely different. You basically have to try and convince people that they need something from your catalog, when most usually I don’t even buy from catalogs because I find that I have better uses for my money.

Emily McCarthy doesn’t take kindly to her so-called rescue. Still, she’s hoping Providence will turn her situation for good, especially when it seems Luke Sullivan may just be the man of her dreams.

They risk it all for adventure and romance, but find that love only flourishes in truth…

1886, New York City: Charlotte Gleason, a rich heiress from England, escapes a family crisis by traveling to America in order to marry the even wealthier Conrad Tremaine.

She soon decides that an arranged marriage is not for her and persuades her maid, Dora, to take her place. She wants a chance at “real life,” even if it means giving up financial security. For Charlotte, it’s a risk she’s willing to take. What begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl wanting adventure becomes a test of survival amid poverty beyond Charlotte’s blackest nightmares.

As for Dora, it’s the chance of a lifetime. She lives a fairy tale complete with gowns, jewels, and lavish mansions–yet is tormented by guilt from the possibility of discovery and the presence of another love that will not die. Is this what her heart truly longs for?

Will their masquerade be discovered? Will one of them have second thoughts? There is no guarantee the switch will work. It’s a risk. It’s the chance of a lifetime.

Bob Revolution

Posted by Vicki on Aug 7, 2010

I had no idea what the Bob revolution was. I had never heard of it before, so I just had to check it out. Imagine my shock when I found out it was just a stroller. *LOL* However I must admit that it is a nice looking stroller. Something I had wished for when the girls were younger. However nice looking, and nifty it is, I would have to seriously consider whether it would be worth paying the price though!!
