Commit Random Acts of Awesome

Yesterday, at around 2:00 in the afternoon, I started to feel really weird. My eyes were crossing, my head was aching, I was extremely overheated and I felt like I was going to be sick. So I left work in a panic to get home before Skeeter (my car) had the unpleasant experience of getting up-chucked on.

Luckily, after running to the restroom and sitting on the floor in front of the toilet for about 15 minutes and then lying in front of the toilet for 30 minutes I got up and went to bed. I dragged myself out of bed at like 5:30 and since Denise went up to Fresno to see Danette (who had hip replacement surgery and is doing very well) I decided to text my friend Anna to see what she was up too.

She took pity on me and my loneliness and invited me to a spa party. I stared at the phone for a good.. oh, two minutes trying to decipher what a 'Spa Party' was. Was it a party in which people brought their foot spas and gave themselves pedicures while discussing how husbands and boyfriends are completely clueless? Was it actually a party that was conducted in a spa? I had no clue.

I finally asked and it's like those Mary Kay and Avon parties. So, I went! It was cool. Because I have very sensitive skin and am allergic to multiple skin products, I tried everything on my arms and hands. However, I did get to paint Anna's face with a really think mask that smelled very Italian. I actually painted way too thick and she had a hard time getting it off, which made for a hilarious story that you can read here.

It was a great night. :)

Today was a fairly busy and productive day at work. I had to key our payroll and this entire year I have been 3 cents off. Just three. I couldn't for the life of me find out where and honestly, I just didn't have the time. This year has been so crazy, so much has fallen through the cracks. But I am excited for this year to close and next year to be way more organized on my part. Getting myself organized is the problem. Time is such an issue!

I am also thinking about a lot of projects to do around the house. I DESPERATELY need to clean my room. Its horrendous. I need to go through my clothes, pack away all of my long sleeve items and get rid of my old unused clothing. I am also thinking about sanding and staining a large dresser as well as fixing the hardware inside. The drawers are all jacked up. But as I was telling Denise at lunch, sanding and staining a desk is not something you can start and just NOT finish. So I'm going to have to seriously think and research if that is something I want to do. We'll see.

Tonight, I have a meeting at 6:15 at La Fiesta. The Young Republicans of Kings County are throwing a formal and I am coordinating everything with the help of Andy, my Co-Chair and Aaron, our Co-co-chair. We have a lot of things to discuss tonight but I am excited to get things on the way.

Other than that, I've been having a great start to my summer. It seems like it is going to be a Really Busy summer. My friend, Ryan, whom I have known since 4th grade when he used to walk me home from school (such a gentlemen) is coming for a visit. I haven't seen him in four years, since he lives in Kansas. I am SO excited to see him. It's a reunion that is long overdue.

I am also planning a trip down to see Alison and the family. I'm really looking forward to that and to me making her take me down to Coronado Beach. Which is my FAVORITE beach. Just in case I haven't told you that before.

Alright. I think I have tortured you with my mundane life quite enough for one post. One more word of advice: Enjoy your life. It's the only one you got.


  1. Love the new look darling! It's fab-u-lous! And, as for the dresser, if you don't want to sand a stain, honestly, a simple coat of paint will do just as nicely. Before I bought a new one, I painted mine (that I'd had since 5th grade, and got a few more years of use out of it!)

  2. Hello, when are you going to go see Alison?


  3. sweet action, I made the blog....(12 days) :)
