I’m feeling overwhelmed……

I decided to retire from Pampered Chef. I put a note in my email signature that my website will be closing as of June 30th. That if you want to order from it before it closes, let me know.

I get an email from a friend “OH NO!! PAMPERED CHEF IS CLOSING?????”

*facepalms*  This is PRECISELY why I am quitting. People don’t read.

I got her back tho…”What???? Where did you read that?????”

Then I said, No, MY website is closing. The one I put in the note? It doesn’t say http://www.pamperedchef.com . It says http://www.pamperedchef.biz/any….etc.

Oh I misread it.

Ya, ya did………but that’s OK.

I’m upset with myself for not having more patience but I guess I really do expect people to read and not skim. It makes me have to do things twice. And I don’t feel like I have the time to deal with stuff twice.

I’m just feeling so overwhelmed again.


I’ve been talking to this guy online for almost 3 months. And while I cannot wait for him to be here, all this talking is a good thing … we are getting to know each other pretty well. I like it.  He found out some things I don’t like, I’ve found out things he does. It’s a win/win. I enjoy trying to decipher what he really means. Sometimes translating from German to English is funny. Cracks me up. His voice is sexy to listen to but then women are always suckers for an accent. Me included.


Daughter goes back to Thailand 2 weeks from today. I’m kind of in a state of denial. I love this girl. She’s been a perfect joy to have with me. She’s so smart and fun and has helped me through so rough stuff. Missing her doesn’t quite cover it. I can’t wait to go see her there.

And yet I am looking forward to having a couple months on my own. Well, not quite on my own. AW will be here. On and off. He has his own house to deal with.

I leave for Italy on Aug 8th. And bring my next new daughter home with me. I can’t wait for 10 days of not dealing with things!!


My friend had to put his dog down this morning. Brings Bear back fresh in my mind and the pain that goes with losing a beloved member of the family.

Yes, that is a miniature horse he’s lookin’ at. Annie, the blond, was his g/f at Jefferson.

Hard as it is to take, he is in a better place and not suffering. We just suffer the loss forever. I know I am still grieving over my Bear. Jegs makes a bit easier. Altho he is over 8 years old now. If Jegs makes it past the end of July, he’ll be the longest living dog I have had in almost 30 years. I hope he makes me for many more years. He’s my dog, my bud, my companion, my friend and my hugger. I love that almost human….


Tell those you love, that you do. And have a wonderful evening….
