What a boo hoo fest

I got the flu really early Wednesday morning and also gave it to my poor BF. We have been sicker than dogs and missed Thanksgiving with our families. We were a pretty sad pair, but at least we were together.

I hope that we will be spared from anymore illness the rest of the year - fingers crossed.

So, this Thanksgiving I was thankful for Tylenol, ice packs, saltine crackers and Gatorade. Not the ideal party, but at least I had a loved one to hang my head in the toilet with.

Disclosure: This post will contain traces of whining and complaining, which may be unsuitable for some readers.

I hurt my neck and shoulder last week and it got better, but not completely. It was tolerable and I tried my best to deal with it, expecting it to go away. Well, boy was I wrong. Yesterday was awful. Nothing made it feel better and I couldn't seem to accomplish anything productive. My sweet BF came home from work and tenderized me like a piece of meat, gave me more Motrin than recommended and I went to bed.

I am feeling a little better today. Not by much, but I am trying to will the pain away because I have a big weekend ahead of me.

Sunday is my mom's birthday! We have a fun day planned for her starting with a champagne brunch in the late morning. I won't disclose anymore plans for the day in case she reads this post. I can fill you in on all the rest of the details later.

Then, Monday is the BF's mom birthday! We are going to take her out on Saturday for a fancy dinner and cocktails.

So, I will be popping pills, using a heating pad and begging the BF to massage my neck and shoulder every waking moment until I have returned to a semi human state again, because I refuse to have nothing less than a great time this weekend.

100 Sales

I made my 100th sale in my beads shop, Bacchus Beads!

I feel like it is a huge accomplishment and symbolic milestone. I would have never made it without the support of my loyal buyers on Etsy. As a huge thank you to all of my fellow jewelry makers in Etsyland, I would like to extend a 10% discount on your entire purchase for the rest of the week until Sunday, November 16th at midnight.

Use the discount code 100SALE in the notes to seller and wait to pay until I send you a revised invoice.

Thank you again!!

I tried

to be cheery today and made an attempt to let dueling marshmallow's brighten my day, but they couldn't for long.

I can't pretend to be happy when California is now discriminating against an entire group of people because of who they love. An entire group of people who had the right to enjoy marriage under the law and now they do not. It's wrong and I will not be quiet about it until all Californian's are treated equally under the law once again.

Too cute and funny!

Sadness, Barack Obama's grandmother Madelyn Dunham dies

The Illinois senator's campaign issued a statement under his name and that of his sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng:

"It is with great sadness that we announce that our grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has died peacefully after a battle with cancer. She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility. She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances. She was proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and left this world with the knowledge that her impact on all of us was meaningful and enduring. Our debt to her is beyond measure.

"Our family wants to thank all of those who sent flowers, cards, well-wishes, and prayers during this difficult time. It brought our grandmother and us great comfort. Our grandmother was a private woman, and we will respect her wish for a small private ceremony to be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you make a donation to any worthy organization in search of a cure for cancer."
