This has been one heck of a week. Turned 39 on Monday, car won't start on Tuesday. Blow-out on I-75 on the other car on Wednesday. Forgot to make cupcakes for my kiddo's 11th bithday to take to school. Pulled a muscle on the side of I-75 when I had to lay on the ground in a mini-skirt to look under the minivan to see if there was a spare tire there (which, of course, there was not).
Whilst I attempted not to flash the world, I wasn't as careful as I should have been when getting up and I pulled a muscle in my left quad. PULLED A MUSCLE from STANDING UP?!! Are you kidding me with this?! I wish I had pulled it doing something cool like rock climbing or back-packing across Europe, or even walking around the block with my little one. But no. *sigh* Getting old is fun.
But hey. I had some quality time with my hubby in the middle of the day during his busiest work season while we got a new tire for the minivan (albeit three hours and $190 dollars later). That was nice.
My kiddo didn't really care about the cupcakes or the fact that we didn't have a party for him. That was very cool.
The car started again and seems to be running fine. That's good too (although I have to admit we're now saving to buy another one in the not too distant future). ... can you buy cars on Addoway?
Business has picked up a bit on other venues, so I'm tentatively optimistic about this holiday season. I have so many ideas about things I want to do with my storefront and marketing my business and my writing, but I keep getting stuck at the pile of laundry on the couch, and keep tripping over small toys. I'm the picture of inefficiency, but luckily, I have small children so I can easily place the blame on them. :D
Speaking of which, I highly recommend that if you have young children, do NOT let anyone buy them a Bedazzler. Trust me when I say the little metal pieces really hurt when you step on them and you will find them EVERYWHERE, especially when you're walking through a dark house at 3 a.m. They hide under the couch and then jump out under your foot when you walk by. They are sneaky little buggars and I'm convinced they are multiplying at an alarming rate. I'm considering hiring a Bedazzler Exterminator. It may be expensive, but it will be worth it. (Curse you Bedazzler!!!)
Anyhoo, I must get back to work; embracing my domestic mediocrity one day at a time.
Shop on, friends, shop on.
