Long hours and Exhaustion

So, this was me, literally at work Friday.

After flying out on a 7 am flight to Tennessee for a conference on Tuesday and back in on Friday morning. I decided to go home and try to get some sleep. LOL.
Yeah not.

I'm sure everyone has been there. 

I'm still exhausted. Saturday was appointments to catch up on stuff and I'm supposed to be heading out here in a few, but I'm not even dressed. 😐 No, seriously, not even dressed. Still in PJ's with coffee #2, and hair flying everywhere.

I just want to stay home.

Not only to rest but I have major announcement coming in January!

So I'm pushing my limits to get stuff done.
NO, I'm not spilling until January. 😜

But if you want to be one of the first to know...
sign up for my newsletter, they'll find out first. 😝😀💋

Deadlines, 2 jobs and a board position defiantly take a toll on the home and family life.
But I know it will all be worth it in the end and so does my fam.

My grandfather always said, if you want something, work for it.
No one's going to give it to you.
(Along with, they ain't worth a piss hole in the snow and they're slower than cold molasses in the winter time - LOL, but that's another blog 😛) 

So, I'm working for it and I will achieve my goals.

Then I'm going to sleep for a week! LOL.

So Stay Spicy and read lots my friends!

Life after Irma

Irma left me without power for 6 days.
Blogging and other power needed items were out.
I was able to get onto FaceBook with my cell and post a couple of times.

I know there are folks still without power and I feel for them!

This hurricane knocked my area of Florida around pretty dang good. 

Thankfully we didn't suffer much damage, hubs was able to fix it right up. 
We did lose about $300.00 worth of food between the freezer and fridge. 😔
And, I did make a demand on the poor man.

I want a generator. He agreed.

During the last few days without power I took a note from my cat and started sleeping on the kitchen floor. It's ceramic tile and was sooooooo much COOLER 😋 

I hope everyone made it through ok!! no injuries, no loss of life!! 

If you had damages to your home or personal property, was misplaced or without power for 5 days or more, you need to go to:

First put your zip code in and they will tell you if you were in the impact area. If you were fill out the FEMA application!

You may be entitled to some funds to help you get back on your feet.

Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma, here she comes.
We are prepped and prepared.
Staying inside and ready.

I have my water, food, flashlights, candles and radio ready.

When the power goes out, I say when, because I know it's going to happen.
I'll finally get a chance to read some of the books I bought at the RWA conference Pro Literacy Book signing event in July.

To the rest of my Florida peeps.
Please stay safe and evacuate if needed.

Stay Safe! Stay Spicy!

Book Spotlight - From Junk Food to Joy Food - Joy Bauer

So,this is what happens when I'm home sick from the day job.
I watch my food shows 😉

I was watching The Chew and saw Joy Bauer come on and cut calories like she had a Samurai sword, yet you still ate very close to what the items where.

So, I bought the book.

This is the first recipe my son made out of it and I have to say, 
It was YUMMY!!!!
 And, we saved on calories!! How is that not awesome!!!!

I'm not going to give you the recipe. You have to go by the book for that. 
But look at the difference in calories!!
Holy Hen S*it Batman!!
And again, YUMMY!!

I bought my book off Amazon, but it's at all major book retail outlets.

Eat Well and Stay Spicy!!
