    Would you continue to work outside the home if you could afford to stay home?

    So, I am at a crossroads in my life. I have a job I love, but lately there are some HR issues going on that have truly left me heartbroken for my boss and myself. If my boss leaves, which I feel is the best part of my job and why I have stayed on, then I am thinking about leaving. I have...

    Need a suggestion for dish to take to Book Club

    I have book club on Friday and they are doing a pot luck this month. Of course, I want to show off one of our recipes. I was thinking of taking everything to make the lava cake in the microwave as something fast. Is there something else I should take? I work that day and will be leaving for...

    Is my stone ruined?

    So... I did a show for my next-door neighbor (her town home and my town home are connected). I left a few items at her house because I was trying to get home quickly. She brought everything back Friday afternoon (or so I thought). Today, I go out on my back patio and I see my large round...

    Sharing HWC Flyer on FB

    Storing Waffle Batter overnight

    I wanted to make batter for waffles tonight to have for the morning. I was going to make it and store it in the fridge in the batter bowl. Can I do this? Will they be OK? Has anyone tried it? As you can see, I am a little neurotic about my waffles. LOL

    Checking on incentive shipment

    I know we have discussed this, but I can't seem to find it. I have not received the Help Whip Cancer items and many of my cluster mates have. I was wondering if I could check the shipment status somehow?

    So much has happened with me personally since my last log in... I have left my husband. He was having an affair and I moved out. I know this seems like a really public place to share this but I have been on CS for a while and so many of you are always so supportive of me, I feel like its...

    Not sure what to do with new consultant

    I have a consultant on my team who recently re-signed. She was on my director's team but signed up under me. I don't know if she decided to, or if my director had suggested it since she has kind of taken a step back with her business. I really like this consultant, but her business has kind of...

    What's your best tip for boosting attendance?

    So, you've talked to your host and find out he or she has 3 people coming and hasn't really done any reminder calls. What is your best tip/trick to get her to do those calls and boost attendance? I tell her that I forgot to tell her we are doing the pot holder contest. What works for you?

    Anyone ever substitute Camembert for Brie?

    Because I am about to, completely by accident. :eek: I grabbed the wrong cheese at the supermarket. Its no biggie because its just a thing for a few friends, but I was wondering what your feedback is.

    Need ideas for Holiday Baking theme show.

    For most this would seem self-explanatory, but for me I am drawing a blank. I even did a search and went several pages deep and didn't see anything. Do you have any ideas for my host that wants to do a Holiday Baking theme? And, how would I go about doing this?

    Question about Ethics...

    My director sent out an email that she is going through some personal issues and has said that she is taking a step back to get things back on track. She mentioned that she has not been a director for a while (which I didn't know) and that our upline director will be taking over. Who, is a...

    Losing my sales...

    So, I am not sure where to begin. Many of you are aware of our continuing financial troubles. Well, PC went to debit my account for my PWS and it didn't go through because we don't keep money in that account because it has been levied. I had updated my new account info on CC so I had no idea...

    So at the risk of sounding 'dirty'...

    I have to just share what I saw as a friend's FB status: "Spend $60 this month and get two free rubs from me!" (and next to it was her beautiful, smiling face). OMG. I almost fell off my chair. It just struck me as funny. I am sorry if I offended anyone, I just couldn't help it.
