I’m Sorry

I know I post a lot about Posh. I honestly try to hold back, because I want to share ALL THE THINGS. I just really truly adore this company and the people. Those who have known me awhile now know that I have done other similar companies in the past- in fact I’m technically still an active consultant in THREE others. I join them because the kits are usually a great value, and even if you decide not to sell, you’re saving money on the initial purchase and receiving commissions on whatever you purchase for yourself. This is what I do for Young Living and Jamberry. As for LLR, well that’s another entire story.

I never really tried to build a business out of Young Living, but I did put the effort in with Jamberry. I didn’t get far. My team kind of collapsed and I never felt at home with my new leader, and that was it. I didn’t have the encouragement and I didn’t have the drive. I love my Jams, but I can see how they aren’t for everyone, so I never felt comfortable trying to talk people into them.

Posh on the other hand- I mean who doesn’t shower? Soap, lotion, body washes and scrubs, face wash, etc… there actually is something everyone uses daily.  I love that there are samples, so I don’t have to convince anyone to buy anything before trying it for the first time.  A sample of face wash is what hooked me- it was the only thing I had used before I went online and purchased the starter kit!

I feel that our products sell themselves, you just need to try them.  They are superior to a lot you find in stores, yet they keep their prices great.  Everything is less than $25.  They are made in the US.  They don’t test on animals.  They use natural ingredients, no fillers, nothing questionable or controversial.  They even have a big vegan line.  So there really is something to appeal to everyone.

As for the consultant side of things, they reward us more than anywhere else.  Working for them is easy, and profitable.  The company itself has a great sense of humor, which you can tell just by reading the catalog or even the names of the products.  Then there’s my upline, who instead of making everything feel like a competition, is helpful, encouraging and supportive.  It turns out, working with people that want you to succeed is pretty cool.

Anyway, I’m sorry I post so much about Posh.  I genuinely love the company and the products and the people.  It’s become a big part of my life, and I’m determined to go all the way with them.  If you want to learn more, join my Facebook group for specials and info about the products and of course to request samples.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/JaymeTatePosh/

Best Day Ever.

I did a lot of waffling with this enucleation.  I really wanted to save Ryan’s eye.  But once he said he wanted it out, and then Dr. Shields said get it out, I figured we were making the right choice.

And after the call we received from pathology today, I’m even more sure we did the right thing!

Due to the blood in his eye, they couldn’t tell us what was going on, which means if we had decided to keep it, they’d have had to perform a vitrectomy to drain the blood.  This potentially could have introduced cancerous cells to other parts of his body, and we were told quite often in cases like his, they end up needing to take the eye anyway.

If we wanted to keep his eye, he’d have to have it done since they couldn’t get a good look at what was going on.  Without it, they couldn’t prescribe chemo or even tell if the chemo was working once he started it.

So the eye came out.  And today we got the results:  there was an aggressive tumor in there.

Aggressive.  And it’s gone, gone out of my baby’s body and into some lab somewhere.  It’s gone, and Ryan does not need chemo.

Best news ever.


Oh the hat?  I ordered Ryan some fancy eye patches from Amazon to wear while his eye heals, until he gets his matching eye from the ocularist.  Except that is what arrived first!

Tough Guy

Ryan came home from his surgery on Monday and was groggy from the anesthesia. They’d dilated his other eye to do a thorough exam while he was under, so it was sensitive to the light.  He was super hungry, and wanted to eat.  He fell asleep a little early, but said he wasn’t in any […]

Last Time

We just sent Ryan to bed- he has to be at the hospital at 6am for his surgery tomorrow.  He wanted to wear his eyeball leggings, this kid, I tell you.  Such a trooper.  I took a quick picture of him before tucking him in, and I’m not going to lie- it’s killing me to […]

Happy Mother’s Day!

As I hear about unhappy ladies everywhere, not amused with their husband’s lack of acknowledgement of them on Mother’s Day, I’m reminded again how amazing Aaron is to me.  We might not do traditional gifts, or go all out with our holidays, but he never fails to make me feel loved and appreciated.  He knows […]

Quick Ryan Update

We’ll find out at some point today what time exactly, but Ryan’s enucleation is scheduled for Monday morning.  It’s an outpatient procedure, so he should be home that night.  They said it will only take an hour – an hour and a half.  He’s more upset that he doesn’t get to pack a suitcase to […]
