A little hiatus...

Kilimanjaro Safari - Disney's
Animal Kingdon
I guess you could say I've been taking a hiatus from social networking the last three weeks - or maybe I was hiding :).  Yep, I was definitely hiding.  Other than posting pictures from my fabulous birthday week at Disney World I only entered Facebook when it called upon me to answer someone's email.  The last couple of weeks have been filled with many hours of opening boxes, organizing inventory and moving stuff OUT of my home and into the La Muse warehouse.  Kudos to Darryel for making rows and rows of shelving for me.  I'm about 80% there - and I know my biceps have gotten at least a little bit stronger.  Other than that I've been cooking like the Tazmanian Devil to accomodate my husband's increased appetite due to Ironman training - always making extra to vac in the Foodsaver to bring to NY for dad.  Btw, I just discovered the wonders of the Foodsaver 6 weeks ago - where have you been all my life??

Last weekend was officially the very first 'free to be me, no place to be, no plans Stan' weekend off in 4.5 years!  And you know what?  It was fantabulous!  It started off with a stay at home, order in, movie marathon and progressed to long walks to nowhere.  Today Darryel and I both got in a good dose of morning exercise then we walked to brunch, walked to a matinee and enjoyed the increased daylight on the walk home.  After we got home he gave me a big hug and said "I had a great day, I really missed my wife."  And so I know I'm on the right road toward fulfilling my New Year's resolution - to invest more in relationships.  I think my husband is a pretty good place to start and I'm grateful to be able to spend more time with him.

In La Muse news I have finally begun to update the website.  If you check it out you'll notice this really cool shopping cart that pops up when you add in merchandise.  I'm playing like the big boys now! (let me know what you think).

New Curly Girl Card
Leigh Standley and her Curly Girl Designs have unveiled 5 new cards for 2011 and we've got them in stock!  My very favorite one is "You have found a place in my heart.."   When I originally read this card a few weeks ago I first thought of it as a romantic love card - but when I read it again this evening I saw it in a whole new light.  I thought of a few of my long time girlfriends and the love, loyalty, fun and joy in those relationships - and how my life is so much better because of them.  They too deserve little hearts and festive parades ... and will have a place in my heart forever.

Happy Sunday everyone - Make it a great week!  And, in the words of Ellen Degeneres, "Be kind to one another." (I've got to find my own 'sign off' quote :)
