before bed babbles November 30, 2011
I am dozing dozing dozing over this keyboard, but I wanted to write a little bit before I take a stroll to bedfordshire. I certainly am not getting a whole lot of “me” time lately, and I think I am going to have to set aside some time in the mornings for blogging. I’ve not caught up with everybody’s blogs yet, but I am getting there.
Tomorrow I have to take my car to emissions, because for some bizarre-o reason the damn place is closed on Wednesdays. Isn’t it great when you drive your butt all the way over to a place only to find out that it isn’t open? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I had to get the O2 censor thinger replaced (finally) so that I could take it through emissions and renew the plates and yadda yadda yadda. I should retire my car and travel by mule. Do any of you guys know where I can find a reasonably priced mule at this hour on a Wednesday? How much does it cost to feed a mule? Maybe this isn’t such a good idea. If I had to move from Florida to Wisconsin by mule instead of Honda Civic, I’d probably just be plodding up my driveway now. Yipes. That makes me think of that game The Oregon Trail… Man, that game was cool. I have a feeling the upkeep of a conestoga wagon and a pair of oxen would be way more of a pain than getting new plates and registration for my car. What the heck am I even babbling about?
Well, I now have two stores carrying my lovely lovely crystals, and there is a third in the works. My mom is going to help me out with new pictures for my etsy shop (hopefully next Wednesday) so that I can get it running again. My goal is to have ten stores in a year, and I should be doing craft fairs by the spring. I would have liked to do a few pre-Christmas fairs, but I need a little more start up money. It has been slow going, but I’m sticking to it and staying optimistic. I am still hoping to get more clients for metaphysical healing, yet that has been slow as well. I have to admit that I don’t really know how to advertise for myself and get myself out there. I’ve got super sweet business cards, but I’m not sure where I should be distributing them. Any suggestions? I suppose I should just leave cards at places that offer alternative treatments for healing- maybe the chiropractor or acupuncturist… Hmmmm.
On the fourth I am doing at least eight days of detoxing. I got pretty sick, and have this obnoxious lingering cough that simply won’t go away, and my poor body feels so sluggish lately. Chris likes to do fasts, and wanted to try the master cleanse with me, so we have decided to do it together. We were going to start it last Monday, but then he remembered this mandatory Christmas ball thingy that they are doing for his unit on Saturday. Leave it to the armed forces to throw a mandatory formal ball. I think they are missing the point with all this forced holiday cheer. Anywhoozles, I told him I’d go a while back, and I don’t want to interrupt a detox with that kind of nonsense. In addition to the master cleanse I am throwing in some guided imagery cds, aerobics, and other relaxing and rejuvenating tidbits.
Apart from being sickly, I also am having a really wretched period. That is totally not typical for me. I was so miserable and crampy the other day that I announced to my entire household that I was going to tear out my ovaries and uterus, pitch them onto the floor, and stomp on them gleefully. Holy drama, Batman.
I’m going to go read some bloggies now. I still have catching up to do.
