Try to say nothing negative about anybody for three days, for forty-five days, for three months. See what happens to your life.

At some point in my sleep I realized the smell I haven’t been able to identify or remove from my house for the last 2 days must be the pineapple sitting on the kitchen counter, and it totally haunted all the rest of my sleep and kept waking me up.

So guess who is really, really going to enjoy her 2 cups of coffee this morning?

This weekend has been crazy busy already, and there’s one more day to go.
I’ve got my feet up and I just downed a glass of wine. Kiddo snuggles on the couch in front of RDj as Sherlock Holmes. Bedtime mercifully soon.

It’s dark and gloomy here in the greater Knoxville area today but I’m preparing to do an awesome presentation tonight!  I’ve got my products, paper-work and guest-gift bags all ready to go and rock this thing! 

Pooped.

Spent 8hrs walking around Gatlinburg today meeting & talking to the locals. Got 2 spa nights out of it and made 13 other contacts we can go back and talk to again! People were so much nicer there than they are in the tiny town I live in. It was an amazing confidence booster to practice talking to people, where they were kind and interested back!

Totally excited to see my business moving forward, even if I’m still navigating the fog of the learning curve!

Sometimes

We drive down back roads, just a little too fast in the curves.
The night air is cool and strong, and smells like cinnamon through the woods.
The radio is a little too loud, the bass a little too strong, thumping out the beat, and I suddenly remember what it felt like to be very young, to not live in pain, and to be very much in love.

It’s nice to know some things never change.

Whew.

Things have been busy around here!
I’ve had 2 Discover Arbonne meetings this week with ladies who’re interested in the business! I’m so excited! Things are happening, even if they’re happening slowly.

I took the kids to a huge kid themed party in downtown Knoxville today. They had so much fun! They thanked me all the way home.

I was too tired to grocery shop afterward, and I feel like I’ve been beaten.

Bananas make a good dinner, right?

I lied.
I don’t have the energy for knit night and I don’t have anything I’m actively knitting.

Sitting in a quiet house, making pasta salad for dinner and about to watch Torchwood.  I will be something other than a blob tomorrow.

It’s been suggested to menthat next time I should get red glasses.

Yesterday was a trial.  I went to the Dr thinking I had an ovarian cyst, and left with a diagnosis for another autoimmune disease—Interstitial Cystitis.  Which diesn’t really change anything, except because of the test I feel like my guts are on FIRE and having to urinate yesterday made me want to die.

It also means I get to go more hard core on the IC smart diet I’ve been half-heartedly eaten for almost a year, as well as add a few more medications to my daily routine or at least 2 and some in-office treatments.

Add that to day 2 of my late-so-heavy cycle and I kind of just want to go to bed for a week.

The kids and I just covered my bed with laundry.  The Husbeast is going to take them to taekwondo in a bit and I think I’m going to go to knit night at the yarn shop.

Playing Beat the Parents with Jeremiah while Hannah plucks my eyebrows.  What else do you do when Mama doesn’t feel well and needs to lay on the couch AND it’s raining?

I love the changes and growth I’m seeing in my life!!
Like the fact that having a conversation with a complete stranger now leaves me smiling, when before it would have left me in a panic attack!

I had some great time with Jesus this morning, and with my kids at the library this afternoon! There was a magic show complete with face painting and balloon animals.

Now we’re home, fed and I’m showered. Going to lie in the quiet for a few minutes and see if this coffee will help my headache (and maybe the rest will help my shoulders and knees?) before it’s time to go love on some kids at church!
