still not fricking shopping, another Disney edition

who is the writer of a shopping blog if she isn’t shopping? I’m in crisis. I’ve done ALL the laundry in the house. and when I say that I mean – when I got dressed this morning I put my pajamas directly into the washing machine…

I’ve got a box by the front door all the time and I keep putting things in it and every other Monday I’m taking a car load of stuff to goodwill. THERE IS STILL SO MUCH CRAP IN MY HOUSE! where the heck did I find time to acquire all this shit?

this morning I woke up, having started a new book last night, excited about justifying my laziness. I’m not great at not doing anything, I always feel like I have to justify downtime somehow. Hence the laundry I guess… annnnnyways. My thinking goes like this…

me: “I’m just going to rearrange my posh closet, but I’m not listing new things because I want to read my book.”

I check my email, there’s an email from Disney and here’s what they have to say about my plans:

Touché, Disney.

Now I’m in the bargaining stage of not shopping. because that fricking bag is coming home from Disney with me.

oh! I changed the name of my posh closet to @shopmyfeelings

also! unrelated to this I am officially incorporated in the state of Massachusetts to be a wholesaler of pipe, valves and fittings. My new company is called Local Solutions, Inc and now you know as much as I do about that. The wheels of progress are rusty. I am taking a pre-certification course with the State of Massachusetts to learn about becoming certified as a woman-owned business. So that’s cool. Still not sure what I’m selling though…

I am the queen of notebooks and lists, there are notebooks everywhere in my house just in case I need to make a list. everywhere but my bedside table – which sucks because I definitely had a great idea for a book in the middle of the night but couldn’t find anything to write it on… so that’s gone.

My friend Melissa of Meow Kapow makes the BEST notebooks. the one of hers I’m using right now is a weight watchers recipe card from the 70’s (Beet & Pineapple Salad Mold) but this one in her Etsy store is TOO GOOD. Link.

I do want to write a book though. I’ve been reading a lot and I feel like I’m up to the challenge. (if you’re an author I’m not discounting your craft, I know creativity is hard)  So that was going to be my goal for 2019 since I’m not doing anything else (other than starting my own business)  I always figured it would be some kind of humorous memoir about cults and body image and unhealthy relationships with food and leaving the house – and that is coming, but it might not be first. I feel like I want to write a domestic noir. That’s how it is done, right? I speak it into existence and then I’m getting a movie deal? A Simple Favor was Darcey Bell’s first book. Isn’t that incredible?! She was a preschool teacher in Chicago.

6:53pm, never read any of my book.

sigh.

xoxo
