Well it's been a while, but I'm back in the game!

The selling game, that is! I did my first phone time last night and had some success in spite of the holiday, then finished up this morning 1-2 short of my goal. I called from 8-12 almost non-stop. I was calling to set up service calls, so of course there were plenty of numbers that had been disconnected, but I am excited about the ones I got set up. I got in touch with this one lady who said as long as I didn't reach into her pocket I could come over. I laughed and said her pocket was safe. I'm really excited, I miss this job and I'm really looking forward to meeting most of the people I am going to see. I love doing service calls because I'm providing a necessary service. I spoke with one lady who's storage unit is cracked and will have to be sent back to the factory, and another who has a few knives her kids broke the tips off of that will need to go back as well, and two ladies who have lost table knives over the years and want to order more.

Spaghetti sauce

Yes I'm still here! I know I haven't posted anything new for awhile, but here's why: I started work on my very own original spaghetti sauce recipe, and it is taking longer than I wanted to perfect. Last night's version was OK but nothing special. It was a little thin for my taste and the flavor was a little to strong for my husband. I used tomato paste, garlic, onion, and Italian seasoning. I'll keep yall posted on my progress and will post the final recipe when I get it just right.
