I’m getting Excited about this Company

NORWEX

Have you used their products? Been to a party?

I’m having a party! Yes I know I already said that but bear with me please.

I would not be having a party but the person who gave us the party in the RV park was so enthusiastic about the products, the company. (and the rewards for having the party.) The products are pricey but seem to be worth as they are making an effort to reduce the toxins in our homes, without a cost to the environment which we all know is in trouble.

I’m having a party because of all the free stuff I’ll be getting for having the party.

And

In the hope that my great grandchildren and yours may live in a world we have known and slowly and selfishly destroyed through ignorance and the consumer life style. Will they have a life without the fears of climate endangerment ? Lack of consumable water will be a huge problem in the future as we continue to contaminate the earth. They won’t unless we become aware of the damage done and efforts to preserve what we must for the future of our families.

I’m telling my daughters that they should sign up, There is one product that the host raved about. that is for removing your makeup. She says it takes everything off with just this towel and water, even mascara. It’s a start, buy that and sign up to host, I bought the dog hair glove, don’t have it yet.

You can sign up to host party and get free stuff too!

The sale is on face book, a private site and I give the names of friends that may be interested in the products. My party is on March 1, a Sunday and goes on for 5 days. I need to add the names on Feb 29. you don’t have to be a Facebook friend, I just need your name for Heather Kirven (consultant) to note who gets credit for the sale. (that would be me)

For me the only possible down side might be giving the names of friends.

But on thinking about possible cons I realize that if you don’t buy anything all they have is your name, no other info, it’s just like ordering an item anywhere , like amazon. I’ve put no money into this except for my purchase for Charley, it is not a pyramid thingamathing.

You can see their product line brochure on line so you will know just what you need/want before the party. Buying these cleaning products will save you from ever going down the cleanings product aisle again.

Drop me a note or an email if you want to be included in the party. (kothon@me.com)

A Great Response! Thank You Karen!

This is a great response I got after my last post about the problems of aging, just what I needed to hear from an old friend even older than I! A good kick in the pants” I needed! I just have to share it here.

Hi Kathy,
I consider aging as a struggle that you must fight daily. Do NOT go quietly in the night saying “well I am old so I fall down.” Bull Shit. Say “Dumb Ass-look where you are going.” Oh yes, it helps tremendously to swear. Furthermore-part of the fight is to try to look good-makeup for the wrinkles, short flirty skirts for the confidence and every now and then have false eyelashes glued on.(They stay on for 3-4 weeks.) for good cheer. You must think POSITIVELY! I just started guitar lessons-they say it takes ten years to learn to really play-SO-I am looking at starting a rock band when I am 90.
It sounds to me as though you are a little down considering your recent incidents. Think positive-you were able to find your rv, you are independent, doing a great lifestyle and u r probably the envy of many dependent women.
YES!
Merry Christmas Kathy,

Karen

I love this!

Okay I didn’t go out to buy eyelashes but I did get some purple eye shadow! She is right. I don’t mind getting old … how silly to mind! I can make some improvements, just the other day a woman told me ‘it’s easy to let yourself go here, I looked around and saw I was the only person wearing slippers to the happy hour! I doubt she meant me, but she looked very put together. I’ll take all this into consideration and stop complaining but you know, it gives me something to write about!

Yeah, purple eye shadow! And age control daily cream by equate (Walmart brand cuz when we get old we are often poor)

I think I’ll get a guitar and start learning so I can join the band!

YoucandoitBabe is Back Home


Got my ‘youcandoitbabe’ smart car back today and all is well but geeze the roads in Texas are terrible. You don’t notice it so much in a bigger car but the drive home wasn’t as pleasant as the drive up in the big loaner car, the roads I’ve driven on in NM are much better.

Monday I’ll drive GG to Truth or Consequences to do errands and fill my propane. finally!


Friends have come to my assistance yet again!

I can’t thank them enough for their willingness to give me a hand or show me how to do stuff. I am a pretty independent person, mostly willing and usually unafraid to try something new or face difficult challenges, but having willing neighborly hands available makes a huge difference in life and fine living.
Today Becca and Dan gave me a rod to place across the cab to hang clothes when I’m not traveling, this allows me to use the one closet I have to use as a pantry, which I sorely need. So instead of trying to find my groceries in these upper cabinets with doors that won’t stay open while I look for what I need I’ll have a proper pantry with shelves. It’s the little things in life worth while, not the big hard challenges that we face because we have to, its small moments and satisfying pleasures that make us smile.


I discovered a new storage space, funny how I’m finding out more about GG still after living with her for 8 months. Yes! It’s been 8 months, ownership in a year in August. We will have to celebrate! Maybe I’ll make a Panamanian dinner for my friends with ropa vieja, arroz con algo y platanos. Or patacones. Always interesting cooking in my tiny kitchen but I managed with spaghetti so I think it will be fine. oh yeah, and flan de la casa.

Old Friends Are Best Friends, New Friends Are Grand!

Sometimes you just need an old friend’s help.

I love my RV but she’s old, needs care and redesigning some aspects of her will improve   my Quality of Life. Very Important to me.

My problem was keeping things where I put them while I am driving.  Everything tended to crash about making driving a very scary affair, imagine you hear stuff sliding about and book cases tipped over and you have to turn a corner and stuff moves again.  Turning corners is the worst! Of course I did use bunggy cords where I had a way to connect them to something solid.  Velcro failed me as did the white hooks I invested in so many devices to hold stuff but nothing worked that well until Jose came and  solved the problem.  I’m not sure but we (I) may have to face a problem that is the result of solving problem number one.

I’ll tell you what was done.

Jose made one side of the RV into one long table and added a board to the wall of the RV into which the bookcases could be screwed into, making them very secure.

This RV is only 22 feet counting the cab so all the working parts are located under something else.  The fresh water tank is under the table just built.  On each side of the water tank are two boxes that we aren’t sure what is in them.  Maybe the water pump could be under one of them.  The water heater is on the other side under the bed,  (since I’ve fallen twice from my  ‘loft’ I’ve made my bed downstairs!). My water pump works now but I don’t need it when I’m hooked up, hope it keeps working when I need it and doesn’t need replacing cuz that could be a problem if its under the table Jose built as I don’t think he’ll be back to take it all apart !

An amazing friend I hadn’t seen in 12 years  came from Austin to Truth or

Consequences NM  to help me.  Thank you José, much appreciated.
