General Update:
Not much to report, life just keeps moving along.  I continue to keep up to date with what is going on in the world.  Always watching the signs of the times and hoping for His soon appearing.  I am continuing to work with the kids and their parents.  When I think about all that is going on in the world I feel so blessed to be working with little children.  On top of that I keep picking up this virus and that virus.  It is annoying, but I am thankful that its just viruses and nothing serious.  Have a vacation coming up and I am looking forward to it.  At 55, my body isn't what it used to be and the kids wear me out, so it will be nice to take a break.

I did try something new recently.  I sold a couple Vera purses on Ebay!  I listed one on Ebay a month ago and it didn't sell.  Well I thought I would try again and this time it sold quick.  It was in a style that didn't work for me.  Since that purse sold I listed two other purses, another Vera in a pattern that didn't work for me and a Lesportsac purse.  The Vera sold, but still waiting on the Lesportsac.  So nice to sell the Vera bags I wasn't using.  When I get back from vacation I will probably be listing a couple more Vera bags.

Use It Up Update:
Well, not much to report on this front either.  Still using the rose scented EO shower gel in my shower.  I think it may be halfway gone.  In the bathtub I was using Philosophy's Amazing Grace bar soap, but I started having some skin issues so I switched it to the vanity for hand washing.  I started using a glycerin type soap in the tub, but then some other issue developed, so I switched to A La Maison lavender-aloe soap.  So far so good.  As for lotion I am using the Whole Foods 365 brand in the lavender scent.  Remember last month I bought lotion on sale at Whole Foods?  Well, I use that lotion to refill my lotion dispensers.  I've used up the bottle of lavender filling up my dispensers, so feeling good about that.  I spent $1.99 on that bottle of lotion and it looks like it will last me another month.  So a dollar a month for lotion is quite a bargain!

I still have quite a bit of goodies in storage, so no need to buy anything more.  I have no idea what I will use next, but I certainly have lots to choose from.  I think the only thing I bought this month was a bottle of Renpur co-wash.  I didn't need it because I already have one in storage, but I found it on sale in a new scent, so I splurged.  The way I've been using the co-wash, I have no doubt  it will get used up no problem.  So other than that I've been behaving.

So there is my update.  I hope this inspires you to keep occupying till He comes, using up what you have and keep trying new things when you can.
