Tupperware Mid July 2018

Have you been wondering what happened to Tupperware posts?
Well you may or may not know how difficult things have been for me this year so I'm doing a restart with the Mid July Tupperware brochure.

If, like me, you LOVE Tupperware Modular Mates .. this is for you.
But you need to hurry because the sale ends July 27th ... so you won't see prices like these again until maybe January!



Now if you are getting ready for school lunches or want to update your own lunches this is the mid month (July) brochure for you.




I love these pieces.  I have the complete set of 5s (the Zero Waste Get it All Set) so that I can do my own portion control meals when I am putting my "planned overs" away.

The Cereal Bowls are great for making overnight oatmeal ... we've been doing that for a while now but the Big Wonder bowls are good too.

You can check out all of these and so much more on my Tupperware Site.

If you have questions...just ask.
If you are interested in joining in on the fun ... you can check out on my Tupperware Site and click Join Us.

Who isn't thinking?

I have again been thinking that I haven't done a post in a while so when I opened a book to start reading for a review and saw this quote that is attributed to George S Patton

If everyone is thinking alike, 
then somebody isn't thinking

I thought yes this is definitely something to write about.

While I haven't been blogging, I have been checking on friends/acquaintances on Facebook.
Now that could be a real problem, or a big eye opener.

Have you been looking at your social media page or pages and wondering what happened?
I know I have.

I am seeing friends turn on each other.
I've heard of friends - real friends, in "real" life, turn on each other so badly that they will no longer speak or even go to the same functions. 

What has happened to us?
And please don't just say "Trump".  
He is NOT the problem.

Something else is going on.
Is it because we no longer think for ourselves?
Are we puppets?
Are we just "following the crowd"?

When did we become so entitled that WE are the ONLY ones that can have an opinion?  And if someone else has an opinion that is not exactly the same as ours THEY are WRONG.

Can we please stop yelling at each other, stop yelling over top of each other and LISTEN, HEAR and THINK?

Please stop with the entitled mindset.  
Please stop taking single comments from people, and I am talking about Congresspeople, Actors, Actresses, Teachers, or your Friends and Neighbors as Gospel.

THINK about what was said.
RESEARCH about what was said.

Make your OWN opinion about what was said.

Let's stop the circle of "the Squeaky Wheel" gets the attention and gets to make everyone do what THEY WANT.  Somehow that just strikes me as giving in.  Becoming a narrow minded person.  And quite frankly reminds me of how people in some other countries were described when I was in grade school.

We have been given the FREEDOM to THINK for ourselves and to express those thoughts without fear.
STOP giving away that FREEDOM that was given to you by extremely passionate and important people ... VETS.  
Many of whom gave the ultimate, their lives, to give you that FREEDOM.

So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE 
Honor those who have given us that right and START THINKING for yourself and STOP following the crowd.

Oh my Where have I been?

I guess I really need to apologize for my absence.  I never expected to be gone so long.

I was looking for something on my blog and saw that I have only done 7 posts this year!
Now if you are a follower of my blog, you know that is just not me.

So where have I been?

We have had some really difficult days, weeks, months this year within the family.

My MIL had some medical issues at the beginning of the year ... 
It actually started within the first week of January.

We thought we were getting a handle on things and although January was difficult, we thought we had turned a corner.

Then came February.

February brought more difficulties and more hospital stays.
Again we thought ok we can handle this.  
We can and will get through this and everything will be good.  
Yes things will change but sometimes change can be good.

So between tax season starting and dealing with her medical issues, I had very little time for anything.  Heck I didn't get my Christmas Tree down until sometime in February ... I guess we thought maybe we could freeze time.

March was another month.  Another month where we thought we had a handle on things and to be honest, we thought things were looking up.

Then came April and we knew that things would never be the same and that this change was not good.

So now it is almost July and I am just now getting ready to start blogging again.
I am looking for things to blog about.  
Things that I am or can be passionate about.
Things that I find that I like, or dislike, and want to share.

I almost feel like I am a new blogger.
Its that indecision, the doubt that I can share things that people want to read about.

Hopefully when I writing and put up a post, there will be people who are interested and will give me their thoughts as well.

If there is something that you would like to read about, something you would like to see me look into or review, let me know.

I will also let you know about some of the things that are available from Tupperware and LimeLife by Alcone.  Yes, I am still a representative for these companies, and still love the products although as noted above, have not had much time for them either.  

Hopefully they understood and allow me time to ramp back up.  So far so good.

Please look for me ... I promise I will try and do things worthy of your time.

It's Saturday!





It's another day, 
another chance to take over the world! 



But  ....
I must drink some coffee,




















and get out of my fuzzy bunny slippers first; 




















I'll keep you posted.
But you know, I might just take the weekend off ...
Cause there is always Monday to set my plan in motion..

Happy Friday

Yes you made it.
It's Friday.


I know it has been a long week.
Sometimes I bet you didn't think you would make it, 
BUT you DID!

And I have to remind you that you are not alone.
YOU, yes YOU, are an inspiration to others ...

One door closes ...

With so many things happening in the world today, we may just need this reminder.

Keep your eyes OPEN.



We need to keep looking for the next opportunity instead of lamenting the closing of something we wanted or were doing.

We could be missing out on those things that we thought were impossible.

Thank you Alexander Graham Bell
Thank you AZ QuOtes
