IdetHope you all had a wonderful holiday season. We loved it! We were able to see family and friends and at last RELAX. All of you were exceptionally lovely I might add. Normally the holidays bring in what Bruce likes to call the "Christmas Crabs". These folks are usually stressed beyond belief and dump on the first person they get their claws into. We only had ONE! No, it wasn't you! It was someone who never shops with us and needed to explain to us in detail why they never will and how much better Amazon is than we are. We know none of you taking the time to read this would ever say that. By the way, I totally get ordering from Amazon. It is unbelievably convenient and can be less expensive. I also would feel like the world would be a sad place if that were the only place you could shop at. We truly appreciate you coming in to shop with us. Convenience is king in this day of overwork and go go go. You waited in line, you came in multiple times, you were kind, you were funny, we honestly enjoy spending time and being able to help you. It is an awesome community and we are so glad you are a part of it.
Now that the holidays are over and the weather is getting colder we decided to make shopping even MORE FUN than we normally make it. Below is a calendar I made. We will try to have specials most days of the week. If there is something fun coming up in February that you would like us to include please let us know. This is for you! Check out facebook and instagram for more details. There was only so much room on the calendar.
I was stuck on Bubble Bath and Elvis Day. Of course we will be playing some Elvis tunes but if you have a good idea on a special let me know. I live for a bubble bath. Don't tell Bruce but sometimes I take 2 a day. I swear they physically melt the stress away. They say to be grateful for three things every day and running hot water is high on my list.
Not sure what everyone is getting so excited about 2021 being better or worse than 2020. It is simply 2021. It is not a competition. It is life. We have highs and we have lows. It is how we react to them that makes all the difference. The story about the Man and his Horse is one of my favorites. If you take the time to read it please let me know what you think. This year, regardless of how it goes, I am deciding to take care of my health. I have been putting it off....and putting it off. I am 45 and I want to be comfortable when I am 95. Doing things now will help that become a reality. So far I have cut down on drinking, am planning my meals and while I want to meditate every morning, I have a hard time kicking my cute loving son out of my bed. He is such a cuddle bug and if I try to climb out at 5 or 6am he will come with me. He is only 7. Soon enough he will not want to cuddle. I feel like these are precious times in our family life and I am soaking it up.
I hope you all have a wonderful day. Even if it is cloudy or cold do your best to get outside or at least to walk around your house, up and down the stairs several times if you need it. Move this year, like your life depended on it....because it does. Baby steps. Don't be upset if you can barely stand, rotate those ankles, lift those legs. You can do more than you think you can!
Love to you all!!!!!!
