Wine & Cheese ~ 50th Serving

Welcome to Wine & Cheese, my weekly, Wednesday whine session.

Every week on Wednesday I devote a blog to whining. Despite being a really happy, positive person, I do have things that annoy me at times.

I never let anything grate on my nerves for long but thought it would be fun to vent them periodically in my blogs.

I also feel that good things, the cheese in life, should be acknowledged as well.

I’m even going to throw in a bit of dessert, a piece of virtual chocolate, something that made me laugh or smile just a bit more than normal.

Sit back and join me now for the 50th serving of some wine and cheese!

:(  Who released the gloom and doom weather?  Gray, overcast, raining…honestly I’d rather have snow than this!  I cannot believe I just said that, it is 52 degrees, feels like spring time but it is icky outside, not pretty, and frankly that can be quite depressing.  If it is going to be warm then sunshine is in order, that or give us back winter and we’ll deal with the snow and cold, at least it is pretty.

😦  Seriously why do women get all the fun with aging?  I’ve had spurts of hot flashes for years, since my late 30s, with an occasional round of night sweats so intense it made me sick to my stomach.  But for the past month or so I’ve been a walking oven!  Most days are a total waste of makeup by lunch time, I sweat it off!  Even my hair ends up damp and a mess, this is a true pain in the ass!

😦  While I’m whining about menopausal stuff, SLEEP DEPRIVATION!!!  Granted going to bed earlier would help, but regardless of what time I hit the sack I’m awake many times throughout the night.  This is far from restful and makes for me being very tired the next day.  Where do I resign from this chapter???

😦  Everything I read about menopause says it might (key word: might) help to avoid alcohol and coffee.  Really?? Give up my 2 pot a day caffeine addiction and my beer?  Why don’t we just lock me in a padded cell now because that is what is most likely keeping me somewhat sane!


🙂  I have my walk in closet back!!!  This past weekend we finally overhauled the basement family room into an Avon office!  All product is on shelves, we have a nice work table and desk, and no more Avon all over the house.  I love it!  I love that I have my closet again too.

🙂  I found a new show to get into, making my Sunday evenings something better to look forward too.  My sister introduced me to Once Upon A Time and I am hooked!  She DVR’d every episode and has me up to date.  We have mom hooked now too.  And it is a show that is on at a reasonable time so I can actually go to bed at a decent hour (yeah COULD but won’t).

🙂  I got the cutest gift this week in the mail from my buddy, Cinful Cinnamon.  From her Cinful Creations, an adorable pink fabric tote, edged in black feathers that is embroidered “Mother Of The Groom” and a wonderfully comfy neck pillow!  Totally made my Monday!  Thanks Cin!

🙂  I get up every morning with a smile on my very sleepy face, thankful that I have the best jobs in the world!  Caring for the baby of a friend (7mths old and ADORABLE) and working my Avon business.  I love this little darling, she brightens every day.  I also love helping other women look and feel amazing with products I’m using myself and can proudly endorse and recommend to others.  Working at home and for myself is the best!  My potential earnings are limitless and I feel a real sense of accomplishment at the end of every day.


I laughed out loud when I saw this, once again so glad I am taking a year off dating to just work on me.


  1. Sounds like you had a busy weekend. I’ve always wondered about Avon and stuff. I don’t think Icould do it at least not now. Maybe when the kids are older and I can devote time to it. I love your wine&cheese posts each week!!!! 🙂
