I Feel Guilty, but it was Worth it!

I was a bad WAHM last night… I didn’t work. Not one stitch, not even a smidgen of a stitch. No emails, nothing. Instead I got caught up in the latest book I’m reading, “Narcissus in Chains” by Laurell K. Hamilton. It’s one of the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, series…

The Power of Ten – Works for Me Wednesday

I admit it, I stole the “Works for Me Wednesday” idea. I thought it was cool and way more do-able for me than “Wordless Wednesday” where you just post a photo with a short sentence. You know I can’t write just a short sentence, and you don’t even want to…

Mmmmm, Massage!

I’m lying facedown on a comfy bed in a dim room, the scent of candles and sound of relaxing music fills the air. I sigh deeply, feeling my muscles relax under the massage therapist’s skilled hands. Heavenly! Teacher got me a Massage Connection gift certificate for Christmas and I couldn’t…

Gaw-geus Dahlink, Just Gaw-geus

I’m doing a happy dance today – my new Mary Kay arrived! Why does new make up always make me feel so happy? Maybe it’s the promise of a new, irresistible, gaw-geous me… or it could just be that I like purple eyeshadow.
