I WILL NOT Make the Meatballs

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens The Masiello Group

There comes a time when a working mom has to sit back and take a good hard look at her values for herself professionally, personally and for her family.  This week has become my moment. It's a hard earned moment, one that one comes during times when change occurs. This is a period of likely change for me and for my family and I announce officially today that, "I will not make the meatballs any longer!"

For me, coming home from work and cooking everything fresh was a way to relax from my busy work day. I enjoyed, and still do, creating new recipes and watching my family devour my meals. Though they did not always react the way I wished, it was self rewarding for me to eat well and fresh meals. How does this relate to real estate?

With two children, dual careers and a persistent tug from my passion for horseback riding, I've come to decide that making meatballs from scratch is just not what I need to commit to right now. I've bought my first store made meatballs (handmade from Shaws, however and not prebagged and frozen... I must add) and it feels GOOD!

Sometimes this means hiring a virtual office assistant, for some. Others it means taking a look at priorities and choosing to opt out of stuff that just doesn't matter. I can hear my manager, Nancy Proctor of BH&G The Masiello Group in Keene, NH, telling all of us her resolution for 2010: "I'm not going to sweat the small stuff" and, you know, neither am I! I WILL NOT Make the Meatballs!

We've all been there...there will be times when you WILL make the meatballs--and it will be even sweeter!

How did those meatballs taste? Every time I buy store bought meatballs...I go right back to making my own from scratch. :)

The meatballs were just fine. I think it's the frozen ones I'll stay away from! Don't worry, I'm make them again sometime!
