Shock and Awe

I woke up this morning and really missed my ex boyfriend out of nowhere. It was really weird and extreme. He moved to Colorado a while ago and we definitely lost touch. I didn't think it would be easy to just pick up the phone and call him since I didn't have his new number or his email any more. My Mom was just like, we should look him up and we just did his name (which isn't the most common in the world) and the whole state of CO. We found an entry that seemed promising and we called. It actually was him. We talked for a little while, but I didn't have a whole lot to talk about even though it had been at least a year since we talked. I gave him my new contact info, so we'll see if we ever talk again.

Been a bit of a while

I don't have too much to update with, which might be why it's been a while since I've written. No new news really here! Just learning a lot in the Business Topics in Etsyland and keeping up with some orders. Hope everything is well with everyone out there!

Well at least I did 2 good things today!

I may have had a sundae of coffee ice cream with caramel syrup; got into a tiff with my grandma; not unpacked as much as I should have, BUT at least I did 2 good things. I brewed up some white tea. I like to make iced white tea. I heat up some agua in my micro and brew the stuff, add some sweetener and then load it up with ice cubes. It is super yummy and supposedly quite healthful. Here are some white tea facts:

White tea is made of leaves and buds that are "less processed" than other types of tea. In fact I read on some sites that it is only dried in the sunlight and not fermented like with black tea. Health benefits of white tea are greater than any other type. Rich in antioxidants, white tea has proven greater cancer-fighting ability than even green tea. White teas are known to boost the immune system, helping to fight viruses and infection-causing bacteria. Studies have also shown that fluoride-rich white teas help prevent tooth decay. Woot! Definitely didn't know about the flouride thang. I stopped smoking a long time ago, but anything anti-cancer is pro-me!

Today is kind of a not so good day already. My Mom said she is going to tell my Grandpa to hurry up on trying to finish the apartment he is working on for her. I feel hurt and rejected, though her dog is quite yappy as of late. I am working on placing a couple orders at suppliers, but I have been stuck at check out because I always feel like I am forgetting one thing or another. I am all caught up on my orders which is nice. Hoping for the floodgates to open once again! Oh, and my cable just all of the sudden stopped working correctly.

So much to do

Right now I'm in the Virtual Labs meeting for the team I'm on (Jewish Etsy Street Team), I'm going to put two orders together. One order for my store, Obama Lip Balm-a and a lavender lip balm order for my other store, Shayna Maidel. Besides that, I have to add more listings, fix listing pics on my site, put together samples for a store here called Simple Nest & Pangea. I really need to get some wholesale things goin!

just a blog entry to motivate myself

Today was pretty long. Had a BAD headache earlier. Will be working on some orange blossom/neroli body oil for SimplySilly, her shop is Simply Silly's Gourd Goods. I'm going to make a lower heat plumping lip balm for a customer. Going to have some chicken tonight, yummo!

All moved in!

I am all moved in, the internets is back up (obviously lol). Grey's Anatomy is on in the background, and I am so happy to be free from there. Free from the noise, the people, everything! Now I am free to be a crazy hippie in the woods!
