Tuesday - May 27

On the low carb front:
Tried Cleo's oopsie rolls with almond meal. Yumm. I tore one up into pieces and mixed it with sugar free pudding. Tasted exactly like an eclair!

The bloggers are still writing about Heidi Diaz and the Kimkins scandal. It is unfathomable to me how anyone could do that and still sleep at night. If her conscience isn't getting to her, I would think the threat of criminal prosecution would. I remember back in the day when she was on the lowcarb friends board. Even then I thought she was full of it, but little did I know how far it would go. In July it will have been a year since the Kimmer Fascination threads started. It will be interesting to see how long those continue. We are now at thread 18 and still going strong. I feel so bad for all of the people who were scammed by her. It's bad enough to be fighting such a tough battle but to be stabbed in the back by a fellow struggler makes it all the more painful.

On the business front:
We took a new and scary (for us anyway) plunge. We have taken out a 1/6 page ad in Country Sampler magazine advertising our Christmas Stockings. I haven't seen anything like them on any site or in the CS magazine. I go back and forth between fears that we will get no orders, to fears that we will be swamped with them. (Which really means that I will be swamped with them since I am the one that makes them. Oh well, you don't know till you try.

Yesterday I had some drop-ins who wanted to buy maple syrup, soap, and candles. Thank goodness they were extended family because I was still in my jammies. Very bad habit - please don't anyone tell Marla the Flylady.

On the Flylady front:
This week we are in the living room. It's good to have a focus because it is easy to become overwhelmed with everything I have to do. If I just look at the task in front of me, I do much better.
