Life is Moving So Fast

I feel like the past few weeks have gone by way too quickly. Just last week we were in Las Vegas for the 2012 Light It Up Scentsy Family Convention.  I returned last Saturday and I feel like I've been going non-stop since then.

Sunday, I spent most of the day at the house continuing to pack, you can accumulate so much in one year, move things into storage, and cleaning.  (more details later about my move).  Monday, I had 5 proposals due by 4pm for clients, one of which fell through, so I completed 4 of them and submitted them all in time.  Tuesday was more all the final packing, professional carpet cleaning, me scrubbing everything top to bottom, moving stuff to storage, leaving way too much stuff still in my car.  After I picked Munchkin up from camp, I felt like I was starting to get sick.  We had a Scentsy team call that night, and by the time we were done I was shivering and felt like my body was about to give out.  I drove home with the heater blasting on high, in New Mexico, in the summer, yeah not good.  I realized I left all our meds at the house, so I took children's benny.  I sweated and shivered all night, and I think the worst of it is now gone.  I spent all day Wednesday wrapped up in the excitement of the launch of Grace Adele, coaching my team - which I love, and taking meds. Today I was back in client's offices,  writing and reporting, and the conversation I ranted about on Twitter tonight that was a total disregard for my time - but I'll leave that off of here.  

So I'm feeling a little drained tonight. It's an exciting time in life because there are so many things happening and so many changes, but sometimes change can be exhausting. It's also a little bit of a scary time because I honestly don't know what's to come! Just riding it out.

Everything is moving so fast. I haven't even had the moment to sit down and process it all. We just moved out of our home that we filled with tons of love and laughter. My son made such cute friends on our street. So many memories. I'm building a business, a brand, and someone just totally wasted a significant portion of my time.  I feel - annoyed.  Everything seems to be happening so fast and I need to process it all!

I hope you all don't mind a little mind dump here tonight. I promise I won't do it often - but sometimes a girl just needs to.


  1. Sorry you felt someone wasted your time. Sometimes the best-laid plans...

    Wishing you and the Munchkin all the best in your new home. It can be difficult leaving a place where you've built memories, connections, and love, but leaving one old thing presents new opportunities that we can't even fathom at the outset.

    Stay encouraged. And blessings.

    1. Thank you for your encouragement! I don't mean to be a complainer. When I sat down to write last night I just felt like phew. Have a super blessed Friday!

A Help Meet

I write this post after much prayer and consideration about whether now is the time for me to say this.  I came across the above picture on instagram one day, and it caused my spirit to leap.  I have shared with you here my journey of going through a divorce, the challenges I have faced, my time of singlehood while healing.

I have entered a new season.  A season of studying on what it means to be a good wife.  Not just a wife by name because one wears a ring and is married to her husband, but a wife that God created us to be.  The help meet He introduced to Adam in Genesis 2.  The companion that is not just along for the ride, but the one who truly makes her husband's life better.

When I saw this picture, it personified everything I've been studying about and praying for.  To be the kind of woman who, when I'm blessed with the opportunity to be a wife again, does not just go along for the ride....but is active in keeping our marriage firmly rooted in the Word so that it c…

CVS Game

I'm back in the game ya'll!  Back in the day when Dave and I were newlyweds and had just bought our first house, I started playing the CVS coupon game.  I was able to stock up so much that I remember coming back a year later after moving back to New Mexico and Dave still had not had to buy toilet paper!
I haven't played in a very long time because coupling takes time. Recently, I came across this great Youtube channel and it seriously inspired me to jump back in. Right now I'm only dealing with CVS, I haven't bothered to begin planning for other shopping trips.
Jumping back in hasn't been with out flaws. Last week I watched Toni's video spent Friday night printing and clipping coupons, made my list, thought I had a plan, and then woke up Saturday morning ready to go. Something didn't work just right because I ended up spending about $120 out of pocket. I did save like $50 and the good news is I earned $15 in Extra Care Bucks (ECB). So this week I was r…

Colin Kaepernick is bae

I really don't need to say anymore.  
I've been saying people with a platform need to take a stand. I didn't want any Black athletes to travel to Rio for the olympics to represent the USA. I realize that is a big thing to ask. That is the dichotomy of being Black in America.  Black athletes representing a country and winning gold medals in the name of a country who doesn't fully see us. 
So Kaepernick gets all my love for taking a stand by taking his seat.  Personal protests have always been the catalyst for greater awareness and action. 
Let me tell you a quick story. This summer at our Scentsy convention, Orville gave a moving and authentic speech that touched on the current times. I could see how he genuinely felt about what he was saying. There was a moment where this quote by a Scentsy consultant's husband was placed on the screen. I realized when he said "he's Black", everyone remained seated, but when he said "and he's a cop" eve…
