not going back to my old ways

I’ve been sick for over a week. I’m feeling a little better now. It was so bad that I had to go to Walmart at midnight to get medicine because I couldn’t breathe. I rarely leave my house (just ask my nosy neighbors) so that was a huge deal. The medicine barely helped. I have to stick with children’s cold medicine from here on out. No more expensive Mucinex. Dimetapp works wonders.

My cold has really put a big dent in my cleaning/decluttering. I haven’t felt like doing anything. Hopefully this weekend, I’ll be ready to go.


I know I sound like a broken record on this topic, but I’m going to speak out because that is what I do. 6 high school football players have died so far this year. What more does it take for people to get it? It’s so sad. And preventable. I hope there are no more deaths this year. Imagine if this were the NFL. Would there be outrage? Would people think before they watch? Hmmm. #BoycottFootball


Another broken record issue: I know what people think of me. I don’t care. It does bother me when people feel the need to point it out as if I don’t know. You aren’t raising a unique point of view. You are just like everyone else. Good for you? Sigh. Newsflash: You’re not perfect either. Should I start naming your flaws? Who cares. She’s just another person interested in labeling my flaws. Get a ticket and stand in line.

Maybe you feel the need to insult me because you are so dependent on others and are under a ton of stress. It sucks for it to be that way, but that isn’t my fault. You chose to take on a tremendous responsibility. I would have never done that because I know how hard it is. Life is already tough enough without voluntarily doing shit.


LOL. My manager got on my coworkers for spreading rumors about me. haha. I work at home and they are still talking. I must be so fascinating. 😉 I can’t say much more than that.


Is it weird that I have a date for my first “real” Michael Kors handbag outing? It is on November 9. I’m going to have my car inspected. Instead of waiting, I’m going to the mall. I am not planning on buying anything. I have been to that mall without buying anything so I can say that with confidence. Just window shopping. I’ve been using my Mizrahi bag exclusively. I will be using my Madewell tote bag more because it is bigger (pic and video below). I have everything covered now. A small-ish crossbody, a medium bag and a large tote. That is all I need.

NO MORE BAGS…but here is my Madewell Transport Tote. I’ve never introduced it on this blog so here goes. It is perfect for traveling, but I use it whenever.


This bag is very popular, but there aren’t that many reviews on YouTube for some reason. It is bigger than it appears in that video. It’s huge.

This week I…

Planner update: 

The Happy Planner

The Happy Planner

I enjoy using this planner, but I feel like it is a little flimsy. I’m definitely going back to my 6 ring system in June 2016. I’m going to buy the Inkwell Press A5 inserts and use them in my gold Kikki.K. I’m doing another planner YouTube video! My nerves. This one will be about my planner system for 2016. My first and very, very bad planner video has over 850 views! It is so horrible. I was nervous. Anyway, I’ll probably do that video in January.

I’m feeling much better than when I started typing this entry on Wednesday. Yay for decluttering the living room! That is what I’ll be doing this weekend.

I’ve had dinner and a nap. I’m going back to work for a little while.
