Oh the Buttery Goodness!

November 21, 2008

I realized I have not paid homage to a product in a long time.  In turn, it is time, and I have a product.  A wonderful, tasty product… that needs to be shared  If you have not tested the Honey Butter Pringles Stixs, you are missing out.  Look past the pizza, vanilla, or wheat (and the spelling of stixs vs sticks) and go straight for the honey butter.  They are a wonderful salty, and sweet snack that will just make you smile.  I am smiling right now!  (They are also easy to digest, which probably doesn’t matter to you, but it sure makes me happy!) 

Run out to the store and grab a box, grab two, come on grab three.  You will be glad you did.  (I encourage you to comment on the buttery goodness.)  I read some reviews on line and most of them were very good.  Some of them mentioned something about MSG….I say for this packet of yumminess….bring on the MSG.

If I get my job on QVC, I wonder if I can sell special holiday boxes of them.  I could easily endorse these.  Maybe I will use Pringles Stixs on my audition tape.  I have so many good things to say!  I think this product could lead me to home shopping success.


QVC Here I Come

November 17, 2008

I have decided what I want to be when I grow up.  Due to the fact that I cannot be a vice cop because my physical health does not permit it; I have decided I want to be a QVC host or HSN…I am not picky.  I think I would be really good at it.  I have been told that I am bubbly, which makes me believe that I am the perfect person to push down comforters or electric mixers on television.  I can totally chat up Millie from West Virginia who calls in to say how much she loves her cultured multi-color pearl wire necklace.  Sally from Sarasota does not scare me….I will love the fact that she got in right before last call to get her proform pillow, which will change her life.

So…if anyone knows what steps I need to take to make this happen, please let me know.  I hope to soon be coming to you from some random channel on your television.  (Special pricing and special gifts straight from your television to your home!)

A Life Taking the Stairs

November 13, 2008

I talk a lot about how this disease has changed me.  (Sorry if you get sick of it…I do not mean to be repetitive.)  It just slaps me in the face sometimes.  Today I had an appointment with my gastroenterologist.  Upon leaving I just felt so weary.  Tired of tests…which of course there are more of.  Tired of surgery….which I hope there is at least a break from.  Tired of the whole process of being “sick”.  I kinda just felt sorry for myself. 

Then a few things happened.  I remembered seeing a young woman walking into St. John’s with me. She walked with a cane as she struggled with a set of hips that you could see were misaligned and fighting her each step.  This woman not only was smiling, but was even getting ready to take the steps instead of the elevator in the parking garage.  I am sure she has had bad days, but today she was inspirational as she just kept moving and taking on the next challenge that was in her path. 

Then as I approached the car I was reminded how this disease may have taken away how my body functions, but it has also changed my heart.  It has been softened.  I appreciate things, in ways I have never appreciated them before.  I see life differently.  I see people differently.  I understand the power of words like I am sorry…without having to add a but. 

I think through this I have become more gentle.  I have learned to handle situations in love…..instead of just fighting to be right.  (That was a huge issue for me!)  I am far from perfect, but God has used this to mold me, to refine me.  How can I not accept this?

All in all I want to be the girl taking the stairs.  I don’t want to settle for the elevator ride….the steps may be harder, but the journey changes you!
