There is an old quote that says, “If you are not a part of the solution, then you are a part of the problem.” I realized how true that saying was, especially when it comes to protecting the environment. I have watched people throw their trash on the ground, waste food, waste water and use toxic chemicals. I never liter, try to conserve food, water and clean my house with natural products. Even though I live an eco-friendly lifestyle, I realized that I was a part of the problem because I was just sitting back and doing nothing.
Now, I am raising awareness about environmental issues. I talk at various conventions and tell people about silica equestrian sand, recycling as well as conserving food and energy. I also encourage them to tell their friends and family members about environmental issues.
I have always wanted to be a graphic designer, and I have spent many hours using my computer to create digital art. Up until recently, I had not shared my artwork with anyone other than a few close friends. I guess I was just unsure if it was good or not. However, I recently read an ad in the newspaper for a job as a graphic designer, so I decided to print some of my art pieces to create a portfolio of my work.
Printers Manchester my work made all of the difference in the world. It made the work I was doing seem real, and I was so impressed with my portfolio of work that I finally had the confidence to apply for that job. I took my portfolio with me to the interview and showed it to the interviewing team. I even showed them some of the pieces I had stored online. I got the job!
A good solid foundation is the key to life, without it you will crumble and fall flop around like a fish. Once weathered and aging you tend to get a little weak and brittle. Not knowing if the next small stressor might take you down. To many times in life we just stand there and take what life throws at us. Standing on that foundation that holds us up like concrete. Let the wind of life blow hard at us. The hurrican of insecurity wale thru our life. It doesn’t matter I’ve got concrete shoes. Maybe even some concrete underwear. Hurl that tree at me I’m concrete. It’s ok shake me like an earthquake, I’m cement. All the proper ingreidents and I’m stable. Mix Rock, sand and hydrated lime and you’ve got me. Concrete.
It is a bittersweet time for my husband and I. He accepted a job offer in a new city. It is a better-paying job, and we are excited about moving to another city. However, we are nervous about what the future holds. We are also in the process of selling the home we have lived in for the past 15 years.
Before we put our home on the market, we took the time to fix it up. We spent about $20,000 on remodeling our home. We knew that if we upgraded our home, then it would have a better chance of being sold. We purchased new appliances and porous paving materials.
Even though it hurts to be leaving the home we have lived in for so long, my husband and I know that we will always be a family, regardless of where we live.
I own a store and it’s called Woo Hoo, all we sell are items that once went MOO! Two assistant managers close the store down and do inventory at the end of each night. After a long day it is easy to get things mixed up or to just plain forget. Both managers are completely exhausted after a 10 hour day of standing on their feet. After the inventory is counted and the paperwork is done, you clock out and go home. The last manager makes a quick note as a reminder of what to pick up on the way home, forgetting she is writing on top of the NCR sets.
Morning shift reads:

2. Pack of Stamina for Men
Copies were faxed out to headquarters with the weekly sales report.
I have always been a person who liked to procrastinate. It seemed so much easier to put things off instead of take care of them right then. I realized that life is a lot harder when you procrastinate. That is why I have recently started trying to tackle everything that I had been putting off.
One of the goals that I said I was going to accomplish, but I never got around to it was recycling. I always said that I would start recycling, so I figured the best time to start would be now. I have also purchased some silica sand, which is something else I have been putting off.
Additionally, I have organized my closet. Being organized has made life a lot easier. That is why I am glad I stopped procrastinated and finally started working on my projects.
I use carbon paper in my home all the time since my husband has his own business. It works great with the duplicate pads. I had an old pad that was not being used and my son, who is three, got a hold of it. He is quite the little artist and loves to draw. He had seen me use the paper a time or two and even tried it on a pad once. His creative side hit a high mark when he decided to use it to create wall art. He took his coloring book and traced the image on his book on the wall. He had the carbon sheet between the two! I had carbon potos everywhere. I have since moved to carbon-less pads. Boy did it take me a long time to clean up that little art project my son came up with.
