House Building - We have a Foundation!

I have a very happy EngineerHubby!

Framing started to come...

I honestly do not know the last time I actually went to the job site...between working 11 hour days and selling houses on days off...I'm just worn out.  I'm sure I will perk up when there is sheetrock and paint!  lol

House Building - Concrete Pour Today!

7:30am this morning....the concrete pour begins.  EngineerHubby is acting more excited than if the OK Sooners were in the National Championship and folks, that's pretty darn excited!

Me?  Bring on the sheetrock and paint and you'll see some excitement out of me!  lol

"Life doesn't give you dreams and aspirations for you to turn away and say 'not for people like me.' Your dreams are your real Self yearning to be followed with a courageous heart and unbending intent. Your own wisdom is more powerful than anything you see around you. The price for living your dream is facing your deepest fear; ask yourself 'What am I afraid of most'? Facing your answer is the price of greatness." 

- Jackson Kiddard, author and polymath.
"Always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that's the one that is going to require the most from you." 

- Caroline Myss, best-selling author, speaker and medical intuitive. 

"Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream." 

- Lao Tzu, Father of Taoism.

Time to FILL the Foundation

It is official...this is the longest foundation in my company's history.  Started mid-December, we are just now able to fill the block and get ready to pour the concrete....and after this fill yesterday and major rain in the forecast, the engineer we hired to consult on the groundwork and concrete recommended this be covered in plastic to preserve the current condition so that may or may not have been done last night by those able to do so.


In other news, I ordered more of the miracle product that has dramatically improved the cognitive functioning of our 19 year old and simply MUST get a blog post up about this .....short version...diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome a year ago and having been in a deep aspie "fog" for years....he is now aware, motivated, talking, taking classes, looking toward his future, his anxiety lessening.....SHOCKING improvement......

Anyhoo......this is the 3rd time we have ordered this PSP (polysaccharide peptides) from Thailand and I guess the US Border Patrol searched it....and opened one of the cans....see the photo of the plastic having been cut with a sharp edge and an entire can was destroyed......$45 worth of product.....GRRR......good news, the company reimbursed me minus shipping....but it wasn't THEIR fault....Don't they have sniffing dogs or something?

You take this 3 times a day for 90 days and then once a day maintenance.  This has been a MIRACLE for my son and for me....husband hasn't noticed much if any difference but Alexithymia can account for that...doesn't mean there hasn't been any difference.  Holt's transformation has been simply miraculous and I WILL get a post on here about it.  I have his permission.  I just get so overwhelmed emotionally every time I attempt to put a post together....

For more information on this product, the US version can read about HERE.  I buy it straight from Thailand and give that info if someone is curious.  I recommend ordered a can or two from this source to see if it is something that would help you/your family....before ordering and paying the shipping from Thailand.

Ok, off to get to work!

Makeup Artistry - Neutral Eye Makeup

I love makeup, makeup tutorials and photos.  I have a board on Pinterest called "Makeup Artistry" that has many followers.  And when I run across beautiful photos, I pin them.  And last week, my sister made a comment about "how many eyes" were showing up on HER page because she follows me.

Guess she doesn't love makeup as much as I do!   I thought I'd share here the most popular NEUTRAL looks so far (the looks that have gotten the most "re-pins" on my board).

This is one of my all-time FAVORITE looks....just gorgeous on brown eyes.
