2.  As I’m writing this I’m a day and a 1/2 into the first phase of the 9 Day Isagenix Cleanse. As predicted I’m mean, crabby and hungry. Grrrrr I also have a headache. It sort of reminds me of drafting–I forget how hard it is until I’m actually doing it LOL! But I also remember how great it is to come out the other side.

My brilliant cleanse observations…

*Toxic crap is much more enjoyable going in than it is going out.

*Life is about perspective. If you told me to exchange three regular meals for  two healthy shakes and a small healthy meal I would have felt deprived. On the other hand after two days of cleansing and not eating much at all–those shakes and a small meal are looking pretty darn good LOL!

*There are people in the world who are hungry like this all the time and they never know when it’s going to end.

3.  My Friday Reads…


Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2)
Elixir Bound
The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus, #3)
Into the Gauntlet (39 Clues, #10)
Masters of Disaster
Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything
Storm Rescue (Vet Volunteers, #6)
The Monster's Ring (Magic Shop, #1)
Yes, I’m reading them all at once. LOL! Some are on audio, some are with my kids, some are stuffed in my pocketbook and some are on my nightstand. And no, I never used to read multiple books at a time, but having kids allows you to multitask.
4.  On March 2nd at 4:00pm I’ll be doing a book signing with Laurie Boyle Crompton, author of BLAZE at Inquiring Minds Books Store in New Paltz–We’re calling it a Hair Flippin’ Event LOL! You should come and hang out!!!!
