My porch, my sunglasses, my face

If you live in Arizona, you know that this week has been rather monsoon-y.

And if you've seen my cleaning calendar (I don't think you have...except for maybe like, one of you?), you know that I usually sweep my front porch every Monday.

Well, on Monday, I swept my front porch. Spic and span.

Monday night = monsoon. Tuesday, porch =

But then, Tuesday night = monsoon. So Wednesday, porch =

Indeed, the weather swept my porch. Not perfectly, mind you, but who cares?

Moral of the story: don't do chores.

And so it happened that I told a story about my front the internet.

In other pointless news, the overcastness of this week has caused quite the conundrum in my life:

sunglasses or no sunglasses?

I put them on, and then I decide it's too dark, and take them off. 

Then my light-sensitive eyes are like, "Whoa! Weird light-reflecting-off-the-clouds stuff going on here. Sunglasses - stat." So I put them back on. 

I wish I was kidding when I tell you that this has happened several times per car trip this week.

Such an exciting life I lead, no?

And finally, for my birthday, my momma gave me some moneys to use for my first facial ever. I went today and I might be a little bit hooked.

The place I went to is called the Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics (SWINA). It's technically a school, but it was really so professional and wonderful that I had no idea. Plus, the fact that it's a school makes it a great deal! Their August special gets you their 1-hour signature facial (skin analysis, cleansing, exfoliation, mask + hand-foot-shoulder massage) for $25! Score!

Needless to say, I'm going back. If you go too, ask for Stephanie J. She was awesome.

Now that this commercial is over, back to your regularly scheduled program.


  1. That is indeed the moral. I had a similar experience with bailing out our swamp. Yes, its just like it sounds. You did it, so now I'll write about my equally boring life. :) And I'll start planning my birthday list.

  2. $25? Serious?? I am so there! I'm glad you liked your first facial ever. And I am glad you are sticking somewhat to your chore chart :)

  3. Given the chance, we could be best friends you and I. I laughed rather hard because I go through the sunlight dilemma regularly. On. Off. On. Off. My eyes are too sensitive to not wear them. But them it's too dark.

    And microdermabrasion is super fun. I fantasize about having it done monthly. You know, in my other life, where I have tons of microdermabrasion money laying around to spend.

  4. You have compelled me to investigate the facial situation. Also, I have that problem with sunglasses during cloudy weather every. time. i. drive.


Your turn.
