Happy Friday! I know that I have been doing a video on Friday’s lately but I had to help out at the lumber company today, so I am doing a normal post instead. I saw that a lot of you commented on the blog yesterday that several of you have had Newfoundland dogs before. I talked to my son in Tennessee this morning, and he told me that Koda is settling in well. He was learning to play with a ball and so far, hasn’t had any “accidents” in the house! Woohoo!
Woohoo! It is beautiful here! We actually arrived in Cancun, Mexico Sunday afternoon and we had a Welcome event to go to that night. It was fabulous being surrounded by Rodan + Fields ladies everywhere you looked. This trip is different from most of the trips that I go on with R+F because it is a trip that is “won” and not one that everybody can attend. Another difference is that there are lots of husbands on this trip. Most of the trips that I go on is just the consultants with a few husbands scattered here and there.
Another Saturday has rolled around and I have nothing planned to do. It looks like I will be forced to keep cleaning on the room that I want to put a studio in. I got rid of a LOT of items this past week so the room is looking better, but dang, I’ve still got a ton of things out there. Here is the funny thing though, half of the stuff isn’t even mine, it is the kids. Lol!
Winter just can’t seem to make up its mind. I have heard winter described as “Old Man Winter” but I am beginning to think that the description is wrong. I believe instead that winter must be a woman and we all know how women are. At least some of us are known for having a hard time making up our minds. Winter can’t decide if it is staying or going here in Virginia. There were several days of temperatures in the 70’s and all day on Wednesday I watched snow flurries flying around outside my window at work. Crazy!!!
Have you ever thought that you need a clone of yourself? I know in the cartoons and sci-fi movies that it never works out and there are usually problems but I sure would like to have two of me on some days. Some of the time it is not because I have so much work to do that I need two of me, instead, it is that I want to do two things at once that is fun. Lol! This is happening to me tonight.
I can’t wait for Spring!!! It is time to spring forward next Sunday and I can hardly wait. I am ready to herald its coming by styling white this week. I couldn’t wait to showcase this gorgeous top that I received about 3 weeks ago from Purple Poppy. I have been dying to wear this top ever since I opened it but the weather has not been very cooperative. I took advantage of a nice warm spell to wear it and I loved every minute of it.
Now you all know what poor pitiful Joe was subjected to the other day. Remember when he made the comment about my hair looking like our dog, Lucy’s hair? If not, then go here. Anyway, Lucy was a stray that was found walking along the railroad tracks outside my house. My SIL was visiting when she spotted Lucy outside. It took me three days to coax the little rascal to come to me and I can see why now since she is a very skittish dog. She is a mix-breed and the only thing that I can say for sure is that she does have some Yorkie in her bloodlines.
I hope everyone has some wonderful plans for the weekend. If not, then I hope you can relax and just enjoy spending some time taking care of yourself, that person we sometimes neglect. I am amazed at how many emails that I get from you gurls who say that after reading my blog you are starting to take care of yourself more and invest in you. How did we, as women, ever forget that we matter? I was guilty also, the children and Joe always came first. Truth is, they probably still do, but now I am able to at least spend a small amount of time tending to “my” needs also.
Ladies, I am struggling. I developed a horrible headache/sinus/weather related headache on the way back from Richmond Wednesday night and I still feel bad. I don’t even like to mention it or complain about it because there are so many people who are really sick and I feel like a whiney little baby. I don’t like not feeling good, (as if someone likes that) because I can’t think and concentrate. So, read with caution because my thoughts might not be cohesive.
The other day when I walked in the door from work, Joe announced to me that my father was now on Facebook. “What, are you sure?” was the first words out of my mouth. In the back of my mind, I was wondering how “he” would know before “I” did. After all, I am the first born child so it would just stand to reason that if my father was going to start a Facebook account and send out friend requests then I would be the first person he thought of. I told Joe that it must not be my daddy and that he better be careful who he was being friends with.
