Random Tuesday Thoughts


Believe it or not, I always dreamed of being Suzy Homemaker and having a beautifully clean and organized house. Why I can't force myself to live up to my own dream, I have no idea. And force Maggie to live up to it as well, since we're together all the time :)

Lots of thoughts and prayers for Emma R.'s family and many, many friends. She died this morning after a long battle with an aggressive form of leukemia. I believe she was still in high school, or may have just graduated.

I'm still high on Dove chocolate conference!! Brand new products include: Sea-Salted Caramel Collection (my personal favorite!), Milk Chocolate-Covered Cappuccino Biscottini, Dark Chocolate-Covered Fruit Collection, Mudslide Chocolatini Mix, and Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Mix (to make cookies or cake).
They've also made it so new chocolatiers can earn up to 60% commission in their first 30 days!! Wish they'd done this a year ago - I met all the qualifications and would have made nearly three times as much as I did! WOW! That's a lot of exclamation points!

Does anyone want some Similac Isomil Advance Soy Formula? I have a can I got in the mail when I had Maggie, that I'll obviously never use...the bottom of the can says it's good til February 2010. It's yours for the cost of shipping...

The dentist today told me I need a crown, and a bite splint. Fun times! They're checking to see how much these will cost me after insurance before I make appointments. Luckily I don't mind the dentist much.

Hope you have good insurance. Mine covers anything up to $1000.00 so I was able to get the bite splint in say December and the crown in January lol. Yeah, I've had a lot of work too.

Hi Becky... I always thought I would be a Suzy Homemaker as well. But I think over the years I've just become burned out... I'm sick of cleaning.... I'm sick of cooking.... I'm sick of laundry... I'm sick of doing it all everyday with no end in sight and I'm frustrated with kids breaking my stuff and making messes for me to clean up and helping themselves to my stuff without even asking.

On the other hand I do like a clean house... I'm a perfectionist gone mad because I just don't have it in me to keep trying to keep it perfect anymore. It drives me nuts that my house is a mess and that there is not a place for everything and that most things are not in their place. But I give up... since no one else cares... I'm beginning not to care anymore either. Ok I lied... I do care... it's driving me nuts... but I'd rather sit here on my computer than get up and clean all day every day just to see it all needing to be done again tomorrow.

Breathe in... breathe out... ok... rant over. This is why we need chocolate!!!... can you pass me a Dove please...

A Lil Enchanted,

All the new chocolate sounds so good.
