Our New (fur)Baby

We had been talking off and on for awhile about getting a second cat. We thought it might be nice for Rex to have a companion, since we are gone for a long time during the day.

This is Little Bit. He came with the name Vicente, but since he's so small, we think Little Bit fits him better. We think he is about 8 months old. He's really playful and a bit of a snuggle butt.

We are not sure how it's going to work out. Our first cat, Rex, is not happy about the new guy and Little Bit is very pushy for someone who is out weighed three to one. We are keeping them apart when we are gone and whenever they get too worked up. It seems to be getting better, so I hope that they can come to an agreement.

A New Venture

When I wrote item five on my 101 Goals in 1001 Days list - get a freelance job - this wasn't what I had in mind at all, but I think this is going to be much more fun.

In January, I signed up as an independent consultant for Thirty-One. Thirty-One is a company offering wonderful purses, accessories and products that help organize your life. The company takes it's name from Proverbs 31 that describes the virtuous woman. Our company mission is to "Celebrate, Encourage and Reward" women. What is not great about that!

I attended my first home party in October and just fell in love with the products. I hosted a party at my house in November and started thinking to myself that I could do this. I figured that if nothing else ever happened with it, I would get $300 worth of merchandise for the $99 enrollment fee, but I hope that it takes off. I like that I can make it as much or as little as I like.

I had my official kick off party on Sunday and it was a great success. Now I am looking forward to having my first few parties and seeing what I can do with it. My sister (wave hi, Sara) is hosting a party in Athens in a few weeks, if you'd like to see what Thirty-One is all about. If you'd like to host a party or know more about the products or the company, just ask me or you can visit my website by clicking the Thirty-One logo on the right.
