Valentine’s Day = Candy is on sale


Let’s get real, I’ve never liked Valentine’s Day. I like the candy. I like the candy more after because it’s cheap by about 8pm and the day after. This is what adulting is about.

A few weeks ago my car went into the shop because when I last had my oil changed they told me I had a small leak. I wanted to take it to my dealership / mechanic. I took it in when I was house/dogsitting, and it ended up that they didn’t fix it because it was going to be about $1000.  I only owe $434 on it. I have 1 1/2 payments left. The mechanic told me he wouldn’t fix it if it were him, he wouldn’t if it was his daughters car. Joe’s mechanic told him not to spend $1000 on a car that’s only worth about $3000. I have an 08 Impala.

I was really hoping to get by with no car payment for a few more years. The reality of it is, I’m not sure it’ll last that long. I’m pretty good about checking my oil; in that I check it about every other time I get gas. I’ve gotten better about checking it more now due to the “small leak” and I’ve not had to add any more oil.

The reality of it is, probably before winter I’ll be in the market for a new – to – me car. As much as I would love to buy a small SUV; I’ll probably end up with another Impala. Why does being an adult suck so much, sometimes.

I have got to hunker down with a budget a bit more than I am now. I need to make time to go to the library in town and get a card; and get on their e-library system, which will save me some money book-wise.

I have so much on my DVR to watch, that I’ve still not caught up on since the last week of January when I was house/dogsitting.   Sometimes I wish I had a DVR box and TV in my office, other times I’m glad I do not. I get more done without it, and if I really want something on, I can stream it.  AND I have so many psychical books to read but it’s so much more convenient to read e-books on my Kindle app on the iPad or my phone.  They look so nice in my bookshelf – except that little gap on the right… I need one or two more books so they fit in there nicely.

Business Books – To Be Read


I suppose, I need to get to bed. I’m attempting to be in bed 2 nights a week by 10; and read – which usually is til about midnight, but obviously not doing so well tonight as it’s 10:50 and I’m still in my office writing this.

The craziness that is life.

How is it already 9 days into February? I had great intentions this year to write a few times a week; obviously that hasn’t panned out so well.

Sunday night I wasn’t feeling so great, and went into Monday at work feeling crappy. I didn’t sleep so great Monday and Tuesday and Wednesday it was just too much; I asked to go home sick about 11. I tried to take a nap when I got home, knowing sleep would be best, but no such luck. I laid in my bed for 3 hours, so I’ll take the rest. I was hoping that I’d wake up and feel better today, but not so much. I really do not like calling in sick. I usually get up, shower, and go to work and tough it out, but it just wasn’t in the plans for today. I called my boss about 7:15 and fell back asleep til about 11:30.  My body needed rest. I lounged around the whole rest of the afternoon and about 4:30 after another warm, relaxing bath; I got out and thought I was feeling better.

The night has been much better, and I am already yawning, so I think I’m going to go watch Grey’s Anatomy and then hop in bed and call it a night.

Pumped for the weekend; Cody Hicks is playing at Wildwood tomorrow night, then I get to see LANco again, they are with Dylan Scott at the First Avenue Club. Great weekend for music.

It’s Transition Month in Scentsyland; which means we are prepping to close out this catalog and pump up for a new catalog in March. Almost everything is 10% off this month.  There are a few items in the SALE section that are marked down 70% off!  There’s a great deal on our Diffusers are on sale for $117 and  you get to pick 3 free oils.  Let me tell you, I was skeptical at first of this whole diffuser / essential oil thing. Then I got one after attending the Scentsy Family Reunion [our national convention] in St. Louis a few years ago. BLOWN AWAY. First, these have Scentsy’s lifetime warranty. Second, you can use any oil, not just Scentsy’s oils, and Third, they are gorgeous.

They shut off when the water is gone. Completely power off. Talk about safe! They have a large water well, that allows them to go about 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low or the intermittent setting. I have one in my office and one in my bedroom. This week, I’ve been diffusing Eucalyptus, and I feel like it’s helping!
