fighting the sadness

March 9, 2010

The only good thing about getting so sick for a couple of days is that it completely took my mind off anything else that was wrong. For a little while, I wasn’t sad or emotional – every part of me was focused on feeling better. And now that I do, physically (although I’m still barely eating), I can start to feel my crazy hormones take over again. The sadness creeps in subtly and slowly, and today I began to feel its fuzzy tentacles wrapping around my heart. I decided that I didn’t want to just accept that, so I took action.

Some Things I Bought

July 3, 2009

I decided to go on a random mini shopping trip after work last night and this is what I picked up: 1. Bath & Body Works foaming hand soap – I love foaming soaps. They make it so much easier to wash my hands. And I love these scents: Wild honeysuckle, sea island cotton, and rainkissed leaves. Only $3 each right now! 2. C.O. Bigelow everyday lip balm – I was in the market for a new petroleum based lip balm, and this looked like as good as any. $5, and so far I really like it. 3. Scentport home fragrance diffuser – Picked this up because it was on sale for $4, and who doesn’t love a fresh linen…
