Well, not really a wrap up per se, but I realized I don't feel blogging (no sir, no blogging today...) and I took that to mean that I should blog anyway because I need to keep the creative juices flowing and so hey, I'm making a list. Five (5) things.
1. Speaking of creative, I've got a little creative writing exercise that I need to do and I have a self-imposed deadline of Wednesday evening. I need your help, if you are willing to give help. Yes, this is vague, however, if you've ever been someone I've called upon as part of my very own advisory council, then feel free to volunteer. Also, if you believe you could provide helpful feedback about things one should know when they first meet the one and only Lesleygirl, then you should also feel free to volunteer.
3. The aforementioned swelling has been quite a crazy thing to deal with. At its worst, I had about 20 - 25 lbs of extra water bloat. No, I am not making that up. These days, I estimate it's between 5 - 10 lbs on a given day. Today is a puffy day. I have no idea why, but tomorrow I will fill up on water and coffee and some hot lemonade-ish concoction, as those all seem to help flush things out.
btw, the skirt is from Sparkle Skirts and I cannot even tell you how much I love their stuff. If you order one, tell them Lesley from New Jersey sent you.
5. I'm quite tired of the whole "KEEP CALM AND (whatever)" meme. Can we be done with that one now? I especially feel this way because as someone who's Irish and Italian and from New York and from New Jersey, I can't keep calm! Keeping calm is so overrated, anyway. Sometimes you need to stir the pot. I'm quite good at stirring the pot, and yet I feel no need to start an internet meme about it or print it on shirts. Funny how that is.
Good night, my lovelies. I've got a big, big week ahead so please send me some good thoughts, if you have good thoughts to spare. xxoo
