It's Amazon Prime Day!!

What is Amazon Prime?? Well it's like a cyber black Friday in the middle of the summer! If you aren't already a prime member (saves a LOT on shipping if you shop as much on Amazon as I do!), I suggest you check it out - then check out all the deals you can get. But hurry - it's all over tomorrow!

I've been in a funk. I'm sad and stressed and sick to my stomach. I need a respite.

Last year at this time, we had four cats. I love my cats. I truly am the crazy cat lady. In October, my buddy, Bucky, went into congestive heart failure and we had to say good bye. The middle of June, Shidd got sick. The vet couldn't figure out what was going on. Then one day, he went for his morning walk and never came back. Shortly after Shidd was gone, Mrs. Black started declining. For two weeks we've gone back and forth to, is she going to die or is she getting better. Trying to work with the vet to figure it out, but rapidly running out of money from vet bills!

My job is stressful. I'm finding myself not keeping up - being disorganized - not following through. All things that simply are not me. I'm finding myself counting the days instead of the years to retirement (955).

I don't want to do anything. My blogs have gotten behind. My training business sits waiting. I cry all the time. I simply want to hibernate until it's all over.

So why am I telling you this? Because today I vow to move forward. To put one foot in front of the other and move beyond the circumstances. Today I will work harder at taking care of myself and not just everyone else. Today is my day.

Life isn't always the easy path. Those rough trails build our character. They lead us into place we might not otherwise go. And, as Albert Einstein said,
"In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity".

Today I claim it.

Finger Towels

My husband and I are sitting here talking about finger towels.

Me: We need to have those little finger towels in the bathroom so when people wash their hands there's something to dry them with.

Dennis: huh?

Me: You know. When people wash their hands they need to have a place to dry them besides out bath (body) towels. That's all that' in there right now.

Dennis: People use our towels to dry their hands?

Me: NO! Well, maybe. That's why we need finger towels!

Dennis: huh?

Me: You know! Those little towels that you set on the sink top so people can use them to dry their hands.

Dennis: That's your department.

Me: huh?
