I don't have a bad child, shes actully pretty sweet, has a good heart, and is super, super smart. Which is part of the reason that we are going through all this now. She's been given her own way so much, and for so long and babied, that now that it's time for her to do the things that are expected of her, she's acting out- and big time. She doesn't want to do chores or listen at home, and at school she just doesn't want to do the work period. Needless to say it's VERY frustrating. It's so hard to watch your child struggle, and it's also hard to know that people are thinking your not doing what you should be doing as a parent, when you know that you are, and they have no idea what is going on in your house or your life.
When K was little I stayed home, I had plenty of time to help at the school, now that G is in school and I work full time, I feel bad about it. I feel like I should be there more (even though right now I can't help with her class because she has a meltdown with me there) but I still feel like I should be home with her. Going through all of this, and working a full time job on top on it is really starting to take it's toll on me. My job is not the most unstressful job in the world, and it seems like ever since I got my FMLA approved, they are more annoyed because my daughter has appt's and such. And well the only time I really get a break from the behavior is when she is at school, and then I am work. Right now I am not making enough with Thiry One, and Scentsy to be able to stay home, although I wish I was, because I really want to be able to be home.
So that's my post for today, it's kinda not uplifting, or happy, but it's like right now!

If your not familler with Thirty One- you can take a look at website here - Nikki's Thirty One Website we have some great products and I can always do an online party, catalog party or take a retail order!!
I am really trying to promote and grow my team, so this is a huge step for me, and puts me one step closer to being to stay home with my kids!!
So after much talk and much debate we decided to try her on ADHD meds, to help her focus herself, and then we are going in on Tuesday (because her Dr wants to keep a really close eye on her with her now being on meds) to see if we are noticing any difference, and to possibly talk about a mood stabilizer. She doesn't want to add them together. So that's where we are. I really didn't want to go this route, but right now we have so much going on with our family, and she really needs something to take the edge off.
They took my father in law to the hospital on Monday, and well things are not looking good on that front. It's hard to believe that we have barely known for a month that he has cancer, and now were not knowing if he is even coming out of the hospital. My best friend since we were little kids just lost her husband to cancer this month at 34, I has no idea what she was dealing with until our family is dealing with it too.
So it's been a rough couple days, needless to say that's why I am not blogging as much as I would like to be :)

I also find Monday's at work to be quite annoying. For some reason's our customer's are all fired up on Mondays about EVERYTHING. And well some of our employees are super grumpy- again you would think that with two days off they (including me) would be in MUCH better moods! Although today is a pretty fantastic day for me as I am back on 6-3, which I LOVE because I still get out of here with enough time to actually get things done. And I have two full hours of being here in basically peace and quite.
This weekend was pretty low key for us, since everyone in our house was sick. I missed out on a huge vendor event for Thirty One, so that was a huge let down since I really needed the contacts from it! On a direct sales plus for the weekend I did 545.00 within my first 15 days with Scentsy- which I am super excited about!!
Hope you all have a fantastic Monday!!

Right now I'm on my kindle, which I am not a fan of posting from. Hopefully next week I will be back to normal and able to write each day, cause I have tons to post about, and get packages out to giveaway winners, and review host's for the month!!!
Oh and I have almost made it to my two month mark, which means, blog makeover!!!!
If you haven't checked out my scentsy site, you should http://nikki88.scentsy.us
I have until 12 tonight and I'm super close to meeting my goal, if I meet it I can buy a package of products for a discounted rate, so I'm really hoping too, that way I have more thinks to use for giveaways!!! Any order helps :)
Hope everyone is well :)

And of course, I have like a thousand things to get done, and be working on. None of which are getting done because of the fact that my head is pounding non stop, and I get to put on the fake " I feel horrible, but I'm am going to set here and smile, because it's my job" which also means, since I am setting at work and not at home resting, that I can count on staying sick for a good while longer. And it's Monday and it was windy and nasty this weekend, so we have lots of happy customers- have I said how much I love my job?!?!?!
Although I do in fact love my other two part time jobs :) It's my regular job that just annoy's me to no end..lol
We did have a pretty uneventful weekend, we went and picked up 200 boxes of girl scout cookies that now I have to sort and deliver. And G went to her bestie's birthday party, which was super fun!
I am still trying to hit my scentsy goal- I have 5 days left, and it's not looking like it's happening. Although I am hoping that I do get some last minute orders and can make it. So I just might make it :) I have some retail Thirty One orders coming in, and a party next week that I am hoping is a pretty good one, with a couple bookings off of it so that I can get going again!!
Hope you all have a great day!

Here's what I got from Thirty One yesterday in my mailbox. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new Cindy tote!!
Have a wonderful day everyone :)

Feel free to pass this along to your friends :)
I will also be doing a Thirty One Hostess party the same way at the end of the month :)
Today is little one's first counseling appointment, and well I am scared for her. I am worried that things are not going to improve and she is going to need meds. But I will say this weekend, that we did use alot of time out for her target behaviors- No hitting, cursing, are the main two right now. And normally time out is a battle. It started out hard, and by the end of the weekend she wasn't happy, but she was going. So that's a sign in the right direction.
Hope you all have a great week :)

Also my Online Open house is going on for Thirty One right now- Thirty One Open House!!
Oh and I work a full time job, have a child with ODD that we are getting intense treatment for, and we just bought a house that we have tons of work to do :) So I guess staying busy if good, then I am pleantey busy! I do hope that I can make enough extra off of both to do the things we need to do to the house, plus we have some hefty bills coming up in the next few months.

Happy Birthday Kate, Being the parent of a child with Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Thank Goodness the Spring Catalog has come out!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY AMAZING NOW 15 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER!! I can't believe how fast the time has went. I'm really proud of all the things that she is doing with her life, and the good choices she is making. I am sure that we are going to get things with G under control, and that she will follow in her sister's footsteps- at least at school, because at home she still has the normal typical smart mouth teenage attitude! I am very, very blessed to have to amazing and wonderful daughter's- they really are my whole life!

They have basically went ahead and said that G is showing alot of signs of ODD. Her first counselling appointment, where they just met with me in today, so please keep me in your thoughts!
