hi everyone and welcome to the holiday season !!!
last night, while having dinner with 2 girlfriends,
I was reminded of
my issues with consumption of "beverages."
one of the girlfriends had 1 glass of wine too many
and launched into a tirade over the other woman's
daughter (who misbehaves badly).
over the years I've struggled with being
"over-served" a few times.
we used to be able to laugh about this, but the time has
come for me to just say "NO" because I really don't want
to have so much fun I can't remember it.
Clare, my friend, was not a pretty picture as she
lectured, way too much, over the other friend's daughter
(daughter is an entitled woman, almost 60 years old,
never married and never worked 1 day in her life,
well educated, well travelled and spoiled rotten,
who blames her mom for EVERYTHING, including
her sister committing suicide 40 years ago, including her own bout with cancer 17 years ago).
so, commencing today, I'm putting the drink aside forever.
and, oh yes, I do enjoy a fine wine
I love Bombay Martini's on the rocks with olives.
but, one loses grace & elegance when one reaches a certain age (and I've reached IT!) & drinks too much.
& sometimes WE don't realize WE'RE drinking too much,
when we're drinking.
I never drink at home when I'm alone.
So, with a great change of mental attitude on this, I've
decided. And, the decision is final.
Anyone have any thoughts on this subject?
I'm thinking I won't say a word to anyone, but you guys.
I'll toast with the table, but sit the glass down.
I'll drink water.
& no one will notice.
LaLaLand is doing very well.
Delivering over 300 pieces to Bering's 2 shops in Houston this week, then another 200-300 to 2 other shops in Houston.
and about 100 pieces sold online.
I'm exhausted but loving the creative process, and was
lucky enough to have my former housekeeper and her
family put all the labels and hangtags on all the garments.
what would have taken me 2-3 days, took the 4 of them
overnight, and I feel so privileged to have that wonderful
family help me out.
sending love, everyone !!!!
