Sad Sunday for my kids

Today is Sunday August 23, 2009, to day is the official last Sunday of the kids summer vacation. The boys return to school August 26th, 2009 and they are so sad!! LOL. Not really, I think the older ones are ready to go back but the youngest one..well different story. My youngest son is sad b/c most of the neighborhood kids are moving up to middle school and he is left behind. Now mind you there are a 2 boys he plays with that are still in his school that are in our neighborhood but all the others have moved on up. We already have the nerves setting in and I hope all my old classmates are in my new classroom. Boy I can remember those days myself and I am so glad they are over!! But today is a very SAD Sunday in out house.

Once the boys go back to school I am now going to know what to do with myself. I was released back to work PRN, so I can continue therapy so I will have some work days but other then that it is just going to be me and my 4 legged babies. I do know one thing, I am going to try working and promoting my site like crazy. I had my grand re-opening last week and for 10 days I advertised and had a special going on along with FREE gifts and nothing!! I know it all takes time but I have to find some serious ways that are FREE or inexpensive to advertise. Doing ti along is so hard and time consuming and honestly FRUSTRATING!! However I shall not give up! I just added a tart giveaway for the next week, for every 3 tarts you buy you will get 1 FREE.

Since the boys are going back to school and fall and the holiday season is upon us, I have been searching for new scents for this purpose and my golly I think I found a whole bunch! I am so in love with almost all the new scents I just purchased, I have a few new favorites, Nutty Taffy Apple, Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie, and Apple Strudel!! But each and everyone I got I really like! I can not wait to start pouring some of these scents just to make sure they are as good in wax as they are in the bottle! I'll keep you all posted on this one.

What I would love to find out from all of you is this...what is your favorite fall, winter or holiday scent?

Well I am out of here, now I am such a mood to go pour some of my new favorite scents.

Hi Diane -- I just left a comment for you over at MBC's under 100 group! I'm stopping by to check out your blog and follow.

I used to be addicted to Yankee candle tarts and warmers, but over the years after being diagnosed with asthma I have to stay away from fragranced items and candles. :(

Take Care -- Dee :D

Try to change their mentality about going back to school. Maybe with a head fake learning style. If you can get your kids to be anxious about learning without them knowing they are learning the results will be beneficial to both parties.
