    After much soul-searching, I've decided to hang up my apron. It's been a satisfying, fulfilling five years, but it's time for me to stop.

    I'll miss you guys. Hope to keep up with you via Face Book.

    Best wishes to all.

    PS--yes, I do have bookings! The business didn't fizzle; I did!

    Oh Ann I'm sorry to see you go. I understand how/why you feel the way you do. I too am at 5 years this month. I'm a little burnt out as well. I didn't even get excited when the new products arrived. My daughter told me she could tell it has just become a job for me.

    I'm not going to give up yet - even though I can if I want to since I said I would do it 5 years when I signed up. I have a new reason to keep going. My Exec. Director just found out she has breast cancer. She will not be able to do any shows so her sales will be a lot smaller. I want to help contribute toward her cluster sales while she is going through treatment. Plus my day job is really slow. I see these as a sign God still wants me to continue.

    I wish you the best. Of course you know you can always come back too:)!

    Take Care,

    Yes, Teresa. I thought south central OK was paradise, but I may have been mistaken! Or maybe there's more than one here on earth?

    Thanks, all, for your well-wishes and support over this past year. I'm in a good place: nice neighbors, good working conditions, great church, and closer to my kiddos! All I need now are grandchildren! :)
