I'm Not Super-Woman

After the Half at White Lake, I stayed for Sunday's sprint because some friends were racing. I stood on the run course and clapped, smiled and told every runner that passed me, "Good Job! You are almost done, keep it up!" Some racers would have special shirts on that said something like- "My name is Sue, say Hi Sue!" One lady that passed me on the run had the Superman sign on her shirt. I said, "Way to go Super-Woman, good job!" She angrily yelled back at me, "I'm not Super-Woman, it SAYS Super-Slacker!!" Alrighty then, excuse me for cheering for ya, Super Biatch!

Which brings me to my topic of today, PMS. Those three letters usually cause men and women to tense up with fear but I've started looking at it differently. During these few days every month, I am in a heightened state of sensitivity. The truth about my life is clearer, this can be good and bad. I become more aware of projects and dreams I haven't fulfilled. I can either beat myself up about it and have a grand pity party, scream and bitch at others because I'm unhappy or get to work. It's like these few days are the last ditch effort to get the ball rolling and finish jobs that need to be accomplished. If I listen to myself, I find what is out of balance in my life.

I realized this month that I have been a Super Slacker in the soap making business area. The White Lake Half consumed me for the last few weeks. I could only think about the race, training, eating, working out. I had no desire to make any products in my soap shack, I was having a creativity block. Last week at market, I had people asking for shampoo bars, lotion, lip balm and soap. Now that I can look back on the Half, I shouldn't have worried so much. I fear the unknown. Another bone marrow biopsy would be okay because I know how it felt. Ask me to run a marathon in eight weeks and I'll drive myself crazy worrying about the unknown factor.

My intuition and creativity has been increased the last few days and I go into this PMS-inspired-creativity frenzy. I decided to get to work in the soap shack again and I feel much better.


I've made Buddha soaps....





And orange and lemon soap-on-a-rope.....

About 100 lip balms. Pictured is blackberry-vanilla and coffee and cream. It took me forever to do the double sided balms in the tins. I had to figure out what I could use to keep the hot balm flavors from bleeding together but I did it! I also made eight bottles of leave in conditioner.

Today, I'll be making bubble bath bombs. I'll probably mold them while watching some corny Lifetime movie and get all teary eyed because I'm feeling sensitive. Who cares though, at least I can say "So long, Mrs. Super Slacker Soap Maker!"

The super slacker story was pretty funny. Um, someone had way too much energy and anger to be yelling at a fan cheering for her. I love your soaps. The lemon ones look super cool. Also, when I saw the lip balm I had a total flash back to tasty lip balm in tin containers. I am so impressed you made that!

Well sweetheart...I'm very impressed as always...but you forgot to mention that you spent 6 hours in the soap shack creating, and then 4 hours training..At least you smelled nice after the training!! LOL

Go to Amazon.com and search on "Superyard xt" for the baby fencing. We bought 2 sets and put them together for a huge play corral in the living room. If it was anchored it would probably work for baby goats for a few weeks, too!
