Do you ever feel like you have just got to recharge your batteries? You would think that after I spent last weekend in Georgia and went to the spa for a nice massage that my batteries would be nice and full. Evidently, that is not the case because I came home from work last night and fell asleep until 7:15 pm. I woke up almost in a panic that I didn’t go to the store and we had nothing to eat in the house, PLUS, I didn’t have anything written for the blog. It didn’t take long for my inner “Scarlett” to take over and before I knew it I was saying, “I’ll worry about going to the store tomorrow. We can scrounge tonight.” Lol!!! Poor, Joe.
After the stressful week at work, I am sure glad to see Friday roll around. Normally, I don’t pay much attention to what the day is but this week has really been a killer. I am not sure if you remember me telling you about my internet being out for about 2 weeks and I had to work by a hotspot of my phone. I am just thankful that I knew how to turn on a hotspot so that I could work. Anyway, we finally got that fixed even though it took two different technicians coming out to the house and replacing my modem and router. Here’s the thing, once all that got fixed my printer wouldn’t work.
Everyone needs to get away every now and then. My trip to Lake Oconee has provided some much need rest and relaxation. While relaxing was high on the agenda going out to eat for a nice dinner was even higher on the agenda. I knew we had dinner reservations on Saturday night and I was stressing over what to pack. I wanted to wear something that I hadn’t worn before and since I am traveling with a younger crowd I wanted to look really nice.
Today I got a new vacuum cleaner. That does not thrill me like it would some people. My Energizer Bunny Friend has a vacuum problem. She LOVES to vacuum, it is her therapy. I kid you not! She vacuums her house at least once a day and when she goes to visit friends they will “let” her vacuum their house to make her happy. 😳 Let’s just say that we are NOTHING alike in that regard. Lol! I do not like to vacuum my house much less anyone else’s house. Lol! But, I had to break down on Saturday and vacuum my house and the vacuum cleaner that we had was disgusting, stinky, and old.
I will be on the road again on Thursday. Does it seem like I am always going somewhere? I didn’t use to ever travel except for the occasional woman’s club meeting and to Tennesse for holidays and birthdays. Now, it seems like every time I turn around I am packing to go somewhere. This time it is a Spa trip to Lake Oconee in Georgia with 6 other Rodan + Fields ladies. I will be the oldest one there by probably 20 years. Whew! When you travel in the circles that I travel in (a younger crowd) you have to be confident and realistic. They keep me young and on my toes.
Do you ever wonder, “where do inspirations come from?” You can be looking for an inspiration in writing, home decorations, or even meal planning. Most of you will answer the same way, Pinterest. Lol! Pink and yellow are not colors I wear often together, but they look great together.
The other day someone, sorry I forgot who, asked me to style a denim dress. Even when I don’t comment back, I do read your comments and will try to accommodate your request when I can. Sometimes I just don’t know the answer, and sometimes it takes me a while to come up with the answer Lol! In this case, I had just purchased a denim dress about a month earlier and had not worn it yet, so I thought this will be a perfect assignment. I immediately started thinking how to style a denim dress casually.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching. It is May 8th this year. Every once in a while, it even falls on my birthday but not very often. I know not everyone is blessed to still have their mother, and for those, this day can be hard. I am going to share with you a few Mother’s Day thoughts and ideas on gifts that might make your mom smile.
Do you hate it when a song is stuck in your head? The other day we started singing “Where is Thumbkin” and now that song is stuck in my head. Don’t ask why I was singing that song in the first place. Haha Get ready to have a bunch of songs swirling in your brain, I am going to name my favorite songs.
