I woke up the first time this morning just after 7 a.m. and promptly closed my eyes again until 8. Then I thought I would have enough time to get up and get ready for church at 9:30 – only church isn’t at 9:30, it’s at NINE! So much for that idea yet again. We used to have services at 9:10 and 10:35 on Sundays, but they changed and now only have one contemporary service on Sunday mornings followed by Bible classes and “life application” studies based on books or video series by various authors & speakers. While this is a good thing for those who were never able to attend the classes before, it also eliminated an option.
So after a leisurely morning, I attended my first ever Arbonne party. Interesting stuff with a fascinating story, as they all are, but WOW! The prices. I’m not sure why, other than I’m a sucker for helping others, but I bought this 7-Day Cleanse product. I’ve always been curious, and I need to rid my body of all the bad stuff I feed it. You don’t have to starve yourself while doing this one. So we shall see!
After leaving the party, I stopped at Sprouts and King Soopers to be sure no one in the house would starve in the near future and was home in plenty of time to watch Army Wives. After a good cry over that (five tissues filled with tears & snot), I discovered that my other two shows were repeats tonight. So I read two more months worth of The Julie/Julia Project. I will admit to skimming over the cooking process and the names of the recipes, which are in French of course. It’s the little tid-bits in between that are fascinating. Of course, I did squirm and wince a little when reading about a second adventure with lobster that was not in the movie. She described in too much detail her experience of taking the giant bug’s life with a knife to its head. EW! I’m now five months into the blog documenting the project – January 19, 2003. And, yes, I’ve made it past aspics!
Tomorrow: Unique Thrift Store hunting for “vintage” costume jewelry and prom dress shopping.
