Shameless Self-promoting

I've spent part of my afternoon 'googling' trying to find out how to promote myself. Who does that?!? Seriously, who takes time out of their busy life to try to find a way to promote their blog/facebook fan page? (By the way, my fan page is Check it out and like it pretty please. ;)

I giggled like a little girl when I told my husband I got another 'like' - that makes 25 I said enthusiastically.  He looked at me like - what is wrong with you? He's probably thinking that I really shouldn't have taken all of those antihistamines yesterday. Maybe I am on a Zyrtec buzz.

But yesterday was rough rough rough with the allergies. At 10pm last night, I told my husband, "Listen, I took an Allegra this morning, 2 hours later with the pharmacist's ok, I took a Zyrtec. I'm thinking it's probably frowned upon for me to take another one, but I'm in bad shape. So I'm taking another Zyrtec. If something happens, tell the paramedics I took the 3 allergy pills within the same 24 hours."... And then I drifted off to sleep.

How do I feel today? I got up feeling like I was hit by an antihistamine bus. Wow, I'm pretty sure that's what hangovers feel like. But I've been sneeze free for most of the day. I still can't breathe, but it's better than yesterday. So tonight I will take (just the one) Zyrtec and hope that after it gets into my system, that it will help. I have a 10 mile run that I need to complete tomorrow.

Hubby went turkey hunting today. Lil Man and I played, and then cleaned the house. Yes, he vacuums. He's actually quite good at it.

Check out the Elmo shoes

So, he vacuumed while I cleaned the kitchen. I wiped down walls, cleaned the cabinets and even tackled the outside of the refrigerator. It's white again. The inside? Well, it can wait. I didn't want to be a total overachiever ;) 

But it was good to get the house cleaned up a little. Hubby came home with a turkey - YEAH! After he took care of his turkey cleaning duties, I made everyone lunch. 

Then I let the boys have some daddy/son time and I worked on my freelance work which was followed by 'googling' ways to promote myself. If case you forgot, the address to my facebook page is

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'll giggle again if you 'like' me. :) 


  1. Lol! Please don't feel ashamed I googled the same thing last night!! I couldn't help but laugh when I read your post. I thought I was the only one! Thank you for sharing. :-) I like how your little man helps you clean. I'm pretty sure he was happy to vacuum just so he can push the loud rolling machine lol. And his shoes! Haha so cute!

    1. Well apparently I'm still not doing the promoting part right. I only have 27 likes.. LOL

      Glad to know I'm not the only one who googled ;)

  2. You are not the only one researching promoting by any stretch! I just liked you from my personal page. My blog page is here:

    I also followed you on Twitter.

    It will continue to grow, don't worry!

    BTW I had a rough time with Zyrtec. It always made me sleepy!

  3. Thanks.. I just liked you also! And YES the Zyrtec is making me very sluggish and sleepy! I'm giving it a few more days and then if the pollen is better, I'm getting off of it. I can't function at full capacity.

What Summer Taught Me

This Summer has been a big learning experience - for both Lil Man and myself. Who knew that an amusement park could be such a learning experience for both of us. I watched as my little boy, all on his own, climbed stairs among strangers, learned how to wait his turn, slide down a water slide, and do it over and over again. I watched as other kids shoved him out of their way, cut in front of him as he stood patiently 'waiting for his turn'. Groves of bigger kids kept cutting in front of him, and I held back and gave him time to respond. This for me was a learning experience. See, people have to have room or space to grow. So I learned how to let go, let out the leash a little, and give Lil Man some space. The first time the kids pushed him aside, he really didn't know what to do. After a few minutes of this, I did intervene. I told him to get in line. Take his turn, and when it was his turn he was to go. And the next time as other kids pushed past him, it only took a few

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss


You'd think as many times as I've been rejected in my life that rejection wouldn't hurt anymore. Really, I can't count the number of times that I've been rejected, or slighted, or been on the receiving end of cruel words. I'm almost 40 for pete's sake. Rejection shouldn't bring tears anymore, but it still does. It just seems like I've been faced with it a lot lately. It started with the Running and has seemed to carry over into other parts of my life. I have spent most of my life on the sidelines watching other people. That's what happened with the marathon.   Once again, I'm on the side as others do things that I want to do. I trained. I had to have an unexpected surgery. I got injured. I couldn't run. It happens. It isn't the end of  the world. But what many don't realize is that there are numerous times in my life that I am on the sidelines, watching, wishing I was the one 'out there' - not the one watching. . But
