It’s been a good week. Just typing that makes me smile. I got to spend some time with a friend I hadn’t seen in a long time Saturday, and we promised each other we’d get together more often. We understand each other, and since we met at low points in both our lives we can celebrate even the smallest victories and laugh at our largest problems.
Sunday I spent time with one of my favorite families, and I got my baby fix while being named Godmother to Daniel, the latest member of the Kennedy Kaboodle. There’s nothing like the smell of the oil of the Chrism on a baby’s head. Sadly, I missed Maeve’s post-baptism leap into the pool. That video certainly would have made a fabulous family keepsake!
Big Nerium news this week! Huge bonuses can be earned in February and March, so if you’ve ever considered working from home or wanted to increase your income without changing your schedule contact me ASAP. I’m excited about helping my family financially and, as always, about sharing Nerium’s ground-breaking products! If you want me to send you a two-week sample, I can do that, too. These are products everyone needs to try!
John passed the test to get his driver’s permit yesterday, so hopefully we’ll have him driving soon. Right now our only functioning car is a tank, so it’s really not an appropriate car to learn in. In fact, I think they probably make tanks smaller and lighter than Sarah. And I’m sure it’s easier to parallel park a tank. Sarah laughs at most parking spaces. She’s a plus-size girl, that’s for sure!
One year ago this week I was dealing with the fallout of my suicide attempt. I still have the same issues as a year ago – some of them are even worse. But I have a fantastic support system, good meds, and excellent coping skills. I’m looking forward to what life will be like a year from now.
A friend also insisted I try her “happy light” – one of those lights for people with seasonal affective disorder. I don’t actually think I have SAD, I just really, really hate cold weather, bare trees, and winter. Of course it’s fabulous for my hot flashes, so I shouldn’t complain too much. Anyway, I’ve only been using the light a few days, but I do feel perkier. We’ll see!
Oh, I found a brilliant board everyone should follow on Pinterest. It’s called Life Hacks by Lynne Hughes. I think if I just memorize everything posted on that board my life will be all rainbows and unicorns. Or maybe all patchwork quilts and salted caramel – unicorns kinda freak me out.
