So I Have These Friends…

So I have these friends…focus is not their thing. It kind of messes with my OCD tendencies but I wouldn’t trade them for the world. 

You see, when I’m trying to work, they distract me. When I’m trying to be good and get my work done, they distract me. When I’m trying to sleep, they distract me. When I just want to be in a crappy mood, they make me giggle and distract me. I should shed myself of these distractions honestly. Nothing good could come from these unions…or could it?
Although they distract me on a regular basis, at least 2 of them know where the bodies are buried. When you read about my life, you don’t know the whole story. They do. When I whine about things, you only read the surface story. They hear the real deal. When you see something on here that might seem obscure, they know the whole meaning behind the post. 

The truth is, I’ve never met some of my “real” friends in “real” life, but I trust them with my deepest, darkest secrets. And I distract them from their “real” lives on a regular basis too. I have to. When I need someone to talk to, they are there. And I love them for that!

So when these friends feel like distracting me, no matter how busy I am, I’m actually OK with it and thankful that I have them in my life.

In May, I will make a real life connection with these friends at SoFabCon (a conference hosted by Collective Bias). I’m pretty excited about being distracted. Hopefully no one will divulge where I’ve hidden the bodies. I’ve trusted them this long, I think they’ve got my back.

It will be epic. There will be pink vs. purple. There will be chub suits and karaoke. But most importantly, I will get to “meet” my friends that constantly distract me. And I will smile. And my world will be a better place. 

P.S. – For the record, I might be the most distracting of all people. Eh…they deal with me and love me anyway. 

Distractions are a beautiful thing. Squirrel please!

Nature’s Sleep Slippers: A Pair for Me, A Pair for You!

Do your feet ever get so tired and sore that you just want to tie pillows to them when you’re running around? I mean as moms, wives,  chauffeurs,  chefs, maids, everyone’s personal shopper…our old dogs can get pretty tired. And if you’re like me, your dogs stay cold…all day, every day. 

Until recently, I’ve felt your pain. My poor feet get a work out every day while I’m running around cleaning up everyone else’s messes, dropping the kids off at school, picking them up, grocery shopping, scurrying around the kitchen to get meals ready, doing laundry, cleaning toilets…running, running, running! 

But my feet have found a new friend in Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam slippers. Mine are open-toed because we all know I’m a flip flop kinda girl, but they are available in closed-toed too. These things are like heaters on my feet.  Seriously, my feet have NEVER been this warm. Plus, it’s like walking on air (because I totally know what walking on air feels like and all). I’m certain that if I could walk on air, this is what it would feel like. 

Since discovering my Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam slippers, I’ve rarely taken them off. Of course, I take them off to go to sleep (most of the time) but other than that, we’re pretty much stuck like glue. 
Whether I’m in my office working and planning out my day, reading posts, or surfing the web…
or chilling on the back porch enjoying some quiet time and taking in the ocean breeze, my open toed, air-like slippers are my constant companions these days!
Heck, I might (or might not) have even walked out the door this morning to take Bug to school and never even realized that I had these slippers on until I got her out of the car to kiss her goodbye and send her on about her day.

They are THAT comfortable!

And I have exciting news! Nature’s Sleep has given me the opportunity to give away a pair of their dog-saving goodies to one of you. That’s right, you can have warm tootsies and comfy dogs from now on…just like me. 

Entry is simple and we’ll be selecting a winner on April 5th. So I ask you…do you feel lucky? Be sure to enter for your chance to walk on the clouds. This may be the closest you ever get!

Never Give Up..The Tide Will Turn!

“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.” – Harriet Beecher Stowe
