Motor Club of America

So, what have I learned so far?

MCA is a fantastic company! The benefits that they offer their members are great and the commission they pay their Independent Sales Associates is amazing.

The company has been around for along time. Since 1926. They are well-established and have an A+ with the BBB. The headquarters is located in Oklahoma City, OK.

They do not advertise on television or radio. They rely on their Associates to spread the word about the awesome benefits and service they provide. This gives them the ability to pay high commissions since they do not have to have a budget for advertising. Plus, once people become members, they tend to stay members for years.

Since I am a busy homeschooling, homemaker, I’ve been looking for something I can do in the early morning hours or even at night when the kids go to bed. I think I have found it! 🙂

I plan to track my progress and share my journey. Stay tuned for updates and if you’d like more information on what I’m trying check out:

My Journal

A couple of months ago, I stopped over to my mom’s house while her and my aunts were going through my grandma’s photos. My grandma passed away in 2010. I miss her a lot. I came across a date book from the late 1980’s. My grandma had an entry for many of the days in that book. The entries were simple and to the point. She jotted down if someone called or if she had coffee with a friend. Little notes about if she cleaned the kitchen, baked cookies for a church function or got a letter from a family member. She also documented the tragic day that my uncle passed away. I found this all so fascinating and I’m so thankful that she did this.

And so, I decided I wanted to start jotting down what happens during my day. Even if “nothing” is going on. I’m finishing up my 2nd month and I’ve already gone back and read a bit from the beginning. I have a terrible memory and so I found myself saying, “Oh, yeah!” I want to continue writing down my days and noting the little things that happen.

I purchased a Traveler’s Notebook and have been keeping my journal in there. Every morning when I get up to have my quiet time, I jot down a bit of what happened the previous day. Just a couple of lines.

Who knows? Maybe one day my kids or grand-kids will have fun reading them.

Do you keep a journal? Let me know down in the comments below.

Dehydrating Watermelon

IMG_2466

Today, we are dehydrating some watermelon. I’ve never been one who LOVES watermelon. I’ll eat it, but I don’t get real excited about it. But, let me tell you, dehydrated watermelon is GOOD! It’s like candy. So, how do you do it?

It’s really simple but it does take a long time to dehydrate (obviously….it’s mostly water). Chop your melon into triangles with about 1/2 inch thickness. Lay directly on your trays. Dehydrate between 145-160 degrees for possibly up to 36 hours. You can rotate the trays and also flip the melon pieces over at around 18-24 hours.

The watermelon we are dehydrating today took up 7 trays.

Who knows what’s coming next! 🙂
