Life is Crazy

WOW!!!  It's been FOREVER since I posted.  I went part-time at work to have more time to do The Errand Fairy, my personal assistant business, and things have just been nuts!  Let me just say that I have never known stress until I decided to start my own business.  This has got to be the hardest things I have ever done.  However, it almost the most rewarding thing I've ever done.

The hardest part is still having to work part-time at the insurance company, because that means relying on other people to do the fairy work that I can't get to.  I'm one of those that would rather just do everything myself so I can make SURE everything is done correctly.  Delegation is not my strong suit.  But being tied to the other job makes doing it all myself impossible.  I've lost 3 people in the last month that found full-time jobs.  The demographic I'm looking for is really quite terrible, lol.  I'd like them to be middle-aged, and if they have kids...I need them to be grown...oh and I need them to already have another source of income so they're not relying on my sporadic work to pay their bills, but yet, still have full-time availability for when I call them at a moment's notice.  :)  You can see how finding the right help and keeping them can make a person crazy.  :)

I think the last time I posted I was 253.5.  This morning I was 252 lbs.  Nothing happening on the weight loss front, and now that I think about it, I'm actually kind of amazed that I'm not gaining with all the stress.  Huh.  Weird.  Anyhoo.....that's what I've been up to lately.  And I didn't even tell you about my one special client who is a walking migraine.  We'll get to that later.  Have a great week!  :)


  1. Congrats on your new business venture...best wishes and happy holidays.

  2. Glad you aren't gaining..and in a few years your fairy errand service would be the perfect job for me..but we live on opposite sides of the country lol. Hope you r walking migrained takes a hike.

  3. Way to go!! Any loss is worth noting--no matter how we get there. (Just wish that I had one to post...LOL!)

    Glad that Errand Fairy is taking off...I know that you do amazing work!!! (Will need to hire you again!!!)

    Keep up the great work!!!!

    Love ya, Girl!

  4. Good to see you post again. As stressful as the business may be, it sounds like there's definitely a market for what you're providing. That has to be a good sign.

  5. Sorry to read about the walking migraine. LOL
