I recently bought another hand cream. It’s not as if I dont have enough of them. And they are everywhere. In my car, in my bedroom, in the kitchen and living room. I am never without creams…throw a few in my tote bags and of course, since I sell them, there is a box of them in my car.
So why would I buy another one? Because I love to try them out so I can tell my customers about them….I try all Avon products so I can talk about them honestly.
And so, for a limited time, Avon has come out with a new collection – shea butter – and I love it….I plan to stock up on it and maybe even give it out free to some good customers who make purchases from me. Besides the hand cream, there is bath oil, body lotion, body wash and even body butter…..it makes your skin feel like silk and is infused with the warm scent of vanilla, sandalwood and musk….check it out today.
“Life is amazing. And then it’s awful. And then it’s amazing again. And in between the amazing and awful it’s ordinary and mundane and routine. Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful, and relax and exhale during the ordinary. That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing, awful ordinary life. And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.”

The time has come to realize that there is nothing I can do when your grown children have decided to move out of the country. I grew up with everyone (and I mean everyone) lived on the same block. Aunt and uncles and their families and grandma….all on the same block. But that was the time when everyone knew each other and watched out for each other. I remember going to the local grocery store and telling Mr. G. to put it on my grandmas bill.
And so this generation has other ideas. Do we blame it on technology, planes that take only a few hours to get us to where we want to go. I considered myself blessed when 4 of my 5 children lived in the same neighborhood. One went to live an hour away….but it still was a close and easy accessible area. And now I will have to accept them leaving NY to fly to another country, taking my two grandchildren. It’s good, a great job and I know they will be fine. But still I will miss them….although with technology – we will skype and manage to keep in touch….but its not the same.
Do you have children outside the US? How do you cope? Any ideas on how to keep in touch besides calls, texts etc.
This weather is playing havoc on my clothes. Hats, no hats. Gloves, no gloves. Boots, no boots. I dont mind the cold weather….although I prefer the warm. But this ping pong of weather we are having is driving me to drink….(a glass of wine now and then!)
It’s February and now March and there is no let up on the crazy weather. One day it hits 70s or high 60s and I tend to change my outerwear and then it plunges down to the 20s where I am upset because I didnt take that hat and the wind is hurting my ears.
So my wardrobe looks like half and half…half winter clothes and half spring clothes…just got a great pair of sandals that I want to wear so badly. I also got a beautiful vest that will go great with them…and so today I went out with my sweater under my winter coat and my boots (forgot the hat again.)
But spring is just about 15 days away, spring baseball is on TV (the Mets play in Florida and I envy that type of weather) and so I will wait until finally I am able to shed these winter clothes and maybe start planting my flowers and tomatoes? A little too early just yet….
I often read of people who get depressed and turn to extreme measures to deal with it. Some people are hoarders, some drink, some shut themselves in a house never to come out. I have seen people who are angry at everyone and everything in their lives. I have met people who do not have a nice thing to say about anything. They feel the world is not their friend and cannot cope.
I think everyone has been depressed at one time or another and how you deal with it means the difference between needing therapy or not. I know there are days I dont want to get out of bed…living in the East when the weather is bad I tend to hang around the house, no makeup on and just want to vegetate.
There is nothing wrong with that. But is it the norm for everyday or just an occasional thing. Thankfully I can say it is only out once in a while. I am the type of person who needs to be outside, meeting other people and taking in the sights of the world. But I do know people who would rather sit on the couch all day and watch tv. How to get them out and about has not been easy especially since it is family. You always become the bad guy in these situations. But I will not stop and think once the weather gets nice it will be easier. In the meantime, I sometimes want to sit around the house also. (Although there are some things I have to do around here like cleaning out closets and laundry!)
