Yesterday I had 2 crowns done. I can't just be a princess if I had 2 crowns at once, right? I was double crowned so I must be queen. When it comes to the dentist, I am a total freak so I had the sedation and went to floaty la-la land. For those of you who aren't aware, conscious sedation is the best. Anyway, I am fortunate to have a fantastic husband who goes out of his way to make sure that I don't have to go through things like that alone. He is also my biggest supporter as far as my starting Stark Naked is concerned. I shouldn't qualify that - he's pretty much my biggest supporter in everything unless you count my mom. If you ask my mom, I can do wrong but it's still ok... It's nice to be loved unconditionally.
Other happenings - I've decided to donate about half of my soap stock to a local battered women's shelter called Hope's Door over here in the north Texas area. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart because they help women who are at their lowest. Women who have left everything behind except what they can fit in a car or bag to start in a new safe place. If they had a job, they had to leave it so they can be safe from their abuser. THEY. LEAVE. EVERYTHING. I want to give them something to make them feel a little bit special again. Also, less altruistically, I love making soap and I can't make more soap if I don't have room for it. Aaaand, it comes back around to me. Oh well. Is it ok to have good intentions and also benefit from it? I don't know how to write things off for taxes but it seems like I should be able to do that.
I'm also considering making body and foot scrubs. I love the idea of the sugar scrub cubes. There's something about the way they look that appeals but I've never tried them so I have no idea which I prefer. I see lots of scrub recipes being tried in the near future. My friends and family are going to have the softest skin ever.
And I forgot to mention the fact that I am having a product party for a customer at her house. I completely new (and terrifying) experience. God, I hope I do ok. Saying that I'm not very comfortable in groups makes it seem like I don't walk away from every gathering analyzing everything I said and did. Why am I doing it then? Well, I need to get my name out there. I want my business to be successful so I am stepping out of my comfort zone and, with the help of my trusty sidekick Klonapin, I'm going to make this shit happen! But I guess I'm going to need a driver because my day job as a legal secretary has taught me that you can get a DWI for driving under the influence of any drug, even Benadryl! I don't need that in my life.
