I come from a long line of “doers”. My family may not be rich but they are all successful in whatever they do. They have a saying that I pretty much live by….“It WILL get done, it may not be pretty, but it WILL be done.” That is the reason for my blog name. Everything I have ever accomplished has been out of necessity.
I am just a mom, a sister, a daughter, a cousin to many and a friend. Through the years I have developed many skills for myself just to get through this world. I know it can be so overwhelming just to do the daily chores of life. I want to try and help with those things and share my journey with you.
I have had to start over many times for many reasons. Such as, a divorce, financial issues, changing jobs, losing jobs. I have moved 11 times as an adult. Most of those moves were with my son when he was younger. I have been able to take those challenges and turn them into life lessons and make things better for my family. I want to share these things with you in hopes of helping you.
I have learned how to organize almost anything, from a ‘junk’ drawer to a full house.
I have learned how to live on a budget. I have learned how to stretch my money too.
I have planned many events: from a simple dinner party of 4, to a 50 year wedding anniversary party for 200 people, organized family reunions, baby showers, graduation parties and birthday parties.
I may not be the craftiest of people but I can have a moment or two just to get the chore done.
I have helped some young people make decisions to better their life or just to help them ‘get back on track’.
I worked for a Pharmaceutical Benefit Management Company for 14 years. I was able to experience the need that people have when they are struggling with illness. My experiences I had there were rewarding and sometimes sad. In my years with the company, I was able to assist some of these people with suggestions to help them get their medications/medical records organized. I was able to offer services they may not have been aware of. I helped people choose insurance plans that benefited their needs. And most important, to me, I was able to be a friend to these people when they had no one.
Since I lost my job I have developed a few new skills, such as: Designing my web page, creative writing and photography.
That is my passion: helping others.
I hope my blog helps you and your family, or at the least entertains you.
If you are looking for some one to organize your home, office, paperwork, photographs and such, I would love to help you.
If you need someone to write an article for you, I am here to help.
Do you need someone to do on-line research, I’m here for you.
Do you need someone to be your photographer for an event, look no further.
I would love to help you any anyway. I am for hire.
