Random thoughts on Wednesday

Hilarious.. All the ads on my blog right now are related to menopause.. A woman clutching her back.. Nice. I'm going to take a picture of myself holding the Magnesium Citrate powder Natural Calm that I carry around in my purse like a baby blanket.. and you'll see the real me. A lot of great things transpired today. I received all the proofs for three sets of clients, I set some things in motion for a new project that I'm going to be a part of, working with kids and photography, and I revamped my little weekly drama class I teach. Got to keep some drama in your life.. On the stage.. On the stage I mean. I also resumed writing on a book that I started last year.

I remember at the beginning of the year my mantra was "health and wealth" and I'll be damn... it's November and the health part is starting to kick in. Now to the wealth.. The other night I dreamed that I was sitting in a hotel room with Donald Trump or maybe it was an amusement park, but he was handing me cash and writing me checks. It was very strange.
