Are You Living a Real Life?

Where have I been. Where have I been? Well, we returned from that glorious trip to the Bahamas and guess what? Life kept right on moving! One of my LEAST favorite sayings is, “Back to reality!” or “Back to real life!” Hey, if I’m breathing – life is real – no matter where I am or what I am doing. So while I didn’t see my return from the Bahamas as “back to reality”, as I worked very hard to earn that trip (and trust me – it was REAL – I was there), there was certainly an adjustment period to getting back into my weekly routine. There were a zillion customer contacts to make – suddenly, upon seeing our Atlantis pics, there were dozens interested in my Beachbody Challenge. There was...

“You’re always on your phone.”

“You’re always on your phone.”

Has anyone ever said this to you? I’ve heard it. Today, I overheard someone direct that same statement towards someone else. I chuckled. The recipient also chuckled as she responded to her accuser. (Which is what I TRY to do when that statement is directed towards me – only, I’m getting tired of hearing it.) See, only a moment before, we had both been reading the Bible on our phones. Yes. There’s an app for that. I used to carry a really large bag everywhere I went. It contained my planner, address book, and as I try never to go anywhere without a book, a book. Then there was the journal I often carried, and a notepad with a scrawled daily to-do and shopping list. During college and afterwards, BEFORE cell phones, it was customary to see...

What’cha Doin’?

I know, I know, I have just been horrible about calling all of you back in Illinois. Just terrible. No excuse other than the “adapting” one. We spent so many weeks without a real schedule that I am now battling to get on one. So, in the hopes that you will forgive me for not calling (oh, and we have decided against getting a home phone, opting to use just our cells – so that number hasn’t changed), I decided to give you a glimpse into our day, now that we’ve started to get into some sort of groove. 7:00 George and I began a tradition back in Evanston, where I am greeted with his sweet face, and a steaming cuppa jo (the one you drink – not read) bedside every morning. I’m a late nighter, so usually, by the time I...

Vote For Me!

Vote For Me!

6:30 AM: Wake up. Chug coffee. Check in with George about the day. 7:00 AM: Get dressed. In workout clothes. Which ultimately go unused for their specific purpose. 7:15 AM: Check emails. Update financials. Drink more coffee. Check to do list for the day. Pack my bag. 7:30 AM: Raise Harper from the dead. Get her clothes ready, as somehow they didn’t get laid out the night before. Help her choose an outfit. Help her choose a second outfit. Settle on the third. 8:00 AM: Zane is up. He awakes with a tummy ache. Doesn’t want to go to swim class. Get him on the potty. Nothing happening. Try and convince him that the tummy ache will go away as I really want him to make his first swim class. George takes over so I can make sure Harper is eating...

Ideal Mornings

Yeah, no, this isn’t me. But, the photo feels like me. At least it feels like the me of the last two days. It’s the me I wish to see. Without the hunching over, as I still have knot’s in my back from sitting at the computer with horrible posture, and stressing over my schedule for the Fall. Read on. I’ve had two ideal mornings. The ideal I have in mind for myself. The ideal which includes waking up and getting everyone where they need to be and then returning home to sit and write for the PR gig, while enjoying a non-rushed cup of coffee, and then using the remainder of the morning to make the Mary Kay phone calls and follow ups that I need to in order to continue building my business. Tuesday found me writing a release and then booking...
