I used to make jokes about a family member having conversations with goats. I take it all back. I’ve been at home all day every day for over a year now, and I talk to me dogs. I don’t mean I just say, “No, you can’t take the stuffed bear outside.” or “It’s lunchtime!” I carry on conversations with them. My husband noticed after a while, but I suspect he was actually just relieved I wasn’t talking to him. Maybe I need a goat. Anyone know if goats will eat poison ivy? If so I definitely need a goat.
I took it upon myself to clean off my dining room table the other day (since everything on it was my stuff).
OK, JUST PRETEND THERE WAS A PICTURE OF A VERY MESSY, PILED-UP TABLE AND THEN A NICE, NEAT TABLE. i’M HAVING ISSUES AND IT’S LATE.
Unfortunately, it only lasted that way about three days.
My sister-in-law Marcia came in from Dayton last Friday. We went out to lunch at a wonderful place I hadn’t been to in ages, then we went to look at Halloween decorations. We drove down the street, and I was kind of bummed that we wouldn’t be able to walk it, but it’s about three blocks in each direction, and that’s much more than my lower back can take these days. Marcia had a brilliant idea. It was mid-afternoon, so the street wasn’t busy, so she parked the car, we looked at two or three houses, she moved the car, we looked at another two or three houses, and I think we managed to hit all the coolest ones. Although there were much more elaborate displays, this was a favorite for both of us.
PRETEND YOU SEE A HOUSE WITH BIG EYEBALLS ON THE DORMERS, JAGGED, BLOOD-STAINED GINGERBREAD AS A MOUTH, AND A RED CARPET TONGUE. IT WAS EXTREMELY COOL, BUT I’M SLEEPY.
Then when Marcia took me home she had a trunk full of groceries for us! She’s been keeping up on all we’ve been going through, and brought favorites for everyone as well as lots of staples. It was like Christmas came early!
I had a fabulously fun Nerium Party at a friend’s house. We all drank a bit too much wine and had just enough fun 😉 She has the most beautiful house, and it expresses her personality so perfectly. It made me realize that I haven’t actually picked out a single piece of furniture in my own house. It’s all hand-me-downs or inexpensive replacements I had to buy to replace hand-me-downs. Kinda weird at age 47, right? I’m not even sure what I would pick if I had the option to choose my own furniture – it’s just never come up.
And I had acne on my chin at the Nerium party. It wasn’t horrible acne, but my skin wasn’t perfect, and it needs to be perfect. That’s what I get for falling asleep with my chin propped in my hands, watching Glee on my iPad in bed. No more hands on chin!!
I’m hoping for an online party and a live party during the coming week – I have three people who have signed up under me and I’m going to do my best to make sure all three of them have a great first month’s sales. That’s another one of the awesome things about Nerium – you are actually rewarded for mentoring and helping the people you recruit. So this past few weeks, and especially the week to come, are all about what I can do for them! It’s nice to be able to help someone else for a change 🙂
Hot flashes have been driving me crazy – I even turned the AC on one night after Michael and John had gone to sleep (shh – don’t tell!) But it’s supposed to be cold this weekend for State Marching Band Finals, which bodes well for the hot flashes, but not so well for my back and neck, or for the drummers’ fingers. Here’s John’s show this year – not their cleanest performance, but the only one I have in its entirety.
