Other Ken Dolls

Hi bunnies! Thank you for your very kind words and support! Princess Freckles, you may just see me pop into your library one day to say hi! I am a regular at Baldwin, I assume that's where your at ???
Ok, so when I started this blog I had no intention of letting it get too personal, oopsies, too late for that.
Although I enjoy reading the blogs about shopping and new products, I also find that if I get great new stuff or tell you about the great stuff I have, there is a sense of bragging and that's not my style, so just trust that I am like so many of you and I know that we probably would covet one another's stuff if we had a looksie into each others closet's.
I will tell you however that I am eyeing the Beantown Quinn purse at Kate Spade. Love it, love it, and yes bunnies, I love it!

Now I know that you are wondering.."What's with the Ken Doll? Has she gone completely over the edge?"
No bunnies, I wanted to tell you about a recent funny that happened to me. One of my doctor's has me going to a gym for my physical therapy. Let me state that I am not much of a gym person, I love to swim and I love to walk (outside) and even enjoyed being a runner for a number of years BUT..the gym thing isn't quite me (this could all change though). There are people there for fitness and optimum health but then there is also this odd sub-culture of "gym people" (you know the ones, guys with Lycra shorts so tight that you are forced to look at their no no spot, women with full blown out pageant girl hair and makeup while sporting rhinestone athletic wear).
Well, I thought I saw Ken Doll, my Ken Doll (not possible he lives in Illinois and isn't the gym type) at the gym but NO, it was a Ken Doll look a like.
Cute, very very cute (my kinda cute)I laughed because when I told two of my girlfriends they said "oh no, you're not going to only date guys that look like Ken Doll #1 are you?"
I will say this unexpected "perk" in my last two therapy appointments has made my days a little bit brighter. It's nice to have that "school girl crush" feeling again. The weird thing is that my last two sessions have been at completely different times and new Ken Doll has been there both times (but isn't hanging out for hours there, he does leave) Sooooo my bun buns, I'm going to work this angle. Get some PT, score a not really but it's sounds good!

It's FALL!

Hi ya bunnies!

Have you missed me?
I hope so! I have been recovering from different things and I'm finally starting to feel like my old self again. Welcome back me!

I have been back in Michigan for about 3 1/2 months and whew..this recession is not the time for an interior designer to be looking for employment. So I made the decision to look for work back in Illinois. As soon as I did this, I was able to send out 8 resumes immediately. I hope that I get a call this week.

Upon receiving that great job offer, I will hop in my vehicle and execute my move. Sigh..what a lot of work to do but I feel like it's time.

I have spoken with Ken doll a little bit and there doesn't seem to be any hint of him wanting to reconcile. Some of my friends say that I "dodged a bullet" but my heart still feels the love and the longing. I know that time will heal this but for now my focus is getting back to work and getting back in shape (only 3 more weeks of physical therapy to go but still no exercise beyond walking and swimming, doctors orders)and just getting on with life.

My original thoughts were to stay in Michigan (it's home and it's really beautiful here) but it looks like life has some other plans for me so maybe I'll be in shopping at the Lilly Pulitzer in downtown Hinsdale very shortly. It will be good just to be feeling girlie and shopping crazy again.

I've reflected so many times on (in order) my job loss then my auto accident, my break-up with Ken doll and the passing of an older sibling in August and I'm still dumbfounded as to what all of this tragedy meant in the scheme of life. I've accepted it all but I still seem so very puzzled. My normal silly demeanor is and has been on hold for the last few months and I hope that part of me isn't gone forever. I don't think it is but it will take time and moving forward to get back to me.

If you pray bunnies, please say a prayer that I get a job offer this week, it would change so many things for me right now.

Anyway, I hope to get back to my regular posts soon..again, once things get moving.

Huggies to all!
I'll have another one, please!
