September in central Florida isn’t exactly iconic fall like many parts of our country.
No rustic smell of wood-burning fires wafting on a stiff breeze.
Not one piping hot mug of hot apple cider in sight.
Our sweaters and socks are still in mothballs.
The only leaves exiting trees are blown off by hurricanes.
Nope, we’re still flipping around in our flops, cranking up the AC, guzzling iced tea, and sporting tank tops.
It may be the worn-out rear end of summer heat, but for me, September is an exciting milestone in my writing year. Because September is when my Too Blessed to be Stressed 2020 Planners hit the book stands.
In celebration, I’d like to share a keep-you-smiling excerpt from next year’s Too Blessed to be Stressed 2020 Planner (there are also lots of inspirational scriptures and funny quotes inside this perfect purse-sized yearly planner) and casually mention that these little beauties sell out nearly every year by the first of December, so be sure to order yours ASAP. They’re available everywhere books are sold, but easiest to find online via Amazon or CBD. *Stay tuned to the end of this post to get your own planner for FREE!
There are some things only women can understand.
Like why unannounced guests can be stressful. Or how come you grab your cell phone to answer the question when a bumper sticker asks, “HOW’S MY DRIVING? CALL 1-800…” Or how to read your child’s temperature by his eyes. That it’s absolutely necessary to own four pairs of black shoes. Or that your dog needs a hug instead of a swat when he watches you pet the cat and then reappears two minutes later with your favorite ceramic statue in his mouth.
And of course, there’s the BBP. You know – the Bursting Bladder Phenomenon. That inexplicable law of nature that expands one six-ounce cup of hot tea consumed before bedtime into two quarts an hour after you hit the sack. And then mysteriously dredges up another quart every half hour thereafter. BBP: The gift that keeps on giving. All night long.
Girls bond over such dribble, er, I mean drivel.
Yes, girlfriends fill in the holes in our relationships with others … especially the sinkholes.
