And it's a Clash, all right.
I have a small hoard of one of my favorite fragrances from Yves Rocher, called "8e Jour" (8th Day)... Body lotion, cologne, powder, body wash, Eau de toilette etc. Even the dab on body cream in a tin and I thin a small bottle of the Parfum. Basically, the whole set.
They discontinued it... so now... I kinda stopped using it because I'd never get any more...I had been enjoying it and using it up and had bought various replacements for several years before they discontinued it. And I would use this up if I could get more. But now, it sits on the bathroom shelves, gets dusty, and I dust it off. I use it once or twice a year on special occasions, like an old lady whose bottles remain unused 50-60-70 years later, only to be discovered while clearing out her estate. Sigh.
Meanwhile, I can still find Cachet or Giorgio, so I use them frequentky, reorder and and keep using them. And I haven't bought so much Yves Rocher because I don't like the other fragrances as much as I do the (discontinued) 8e Jour.
Should it stay or should it go???

Fun chocolate calculator - It was right on for me!
Wish I was smart enough to figure it out!
YOUR AGE, BY CHOCOLATE MATH
Don't tell me your age; you'd probably lie anyway-
but the Godiva Chocolate Lady will know!
YOUR AGE BY CHOCOLATE MATH:
This is pretty neat.
DON'T CHEAT BY SCROLLING DOWN FIRST!
It takes less than a minute. Work this out as you read.
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!
This is not one of those waste of time things, it's fun!
1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)
2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)
3. Add 5
4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait, while you get the calculator!
5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1762 ..
If you haven't, add 1761.
6... Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.
You should have a three digit number
The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).
The next two numbers are YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)
THIS IS THE ONLY YEAR (2012) IT WILL EVER WORK,
SO SPREAD IT AROUND WHILE IT LASTS.

Saw this link on Facebook. I don't know if this guy is on SparkPeople - if he is, I'd give him a bunch of SparkGoodies. This video is SOOO inspiring!! Even my son thinks it is cool how much this warrior progresses in his yoga skills!!

Through a combination of events last week, I have really messed up my left shoulder bad. It hit just as sunset was beginning, en route to Lawton for a wedding Sat afternoon (my husband'sz neice). It has been so bad we also thought maybe I was having heart attack but the pain does seem to be a point in the hollow part immediately to the right of that top bone forming my left shoulder.
So I hope to get in to see my doctor today, after my husband gets back from his dental appointment (the one that has already been postponed once aleady.) I didn't sleep well last night (okay so like 3.5 hours), being a side sleeper etc...
I keep dozing off writing this. Will update later as I can.

Awkkkk confession... I bought this bag of "Brasil Party Cocoa Covered Wafers"... Innocent little bag. I forgot to check the ingredients. They were on sale at Big Lots in their "International Foods" section. Made in Italy, the leading producers of seductive foods of chocolate...sugar...faaaaaat. One serving is 3 of these little sugar bombs. Only 174 calories. Approximately seven servings in that siren red shiny mylar bag. Slutty little devils have 9 grams of fat, 8 of it is SATURATED fat!! Zero grams trans fat - well, whoopy woo lah lah do!
WHY did I not preach to the choir to myself in the store and check the labels before I wandered off to the cashiers stand?
Now I know why my husband calls it "Pig Lots". Oink!
So... Feeling disgusted and frankly sick to my stomach, I took some charcoal - maybe it will stench up some of the mess before the heart attack hits.
And then I thought, wellll, better burn some calories and do something RIGHT for a change. Was trying to put away laundry and decided I might as well weed out the clothes that were too big (or ugly, worn out, had irritating seams and stains I'd never been able to get washed out), along with clothes that I used to wear 25-35 pounds ago, and got them all crammed into one of those ZipLock Size 2X storage bags, 32" tall below the zipper seam.
I was shocked when I picked it up - for one, couldn't believe how heavy it seemed and how poor my muscle tone has gotten since I quit going to Curves some four or five years ago. Decided to weigh myself and the lying scale claims I've lost weight, despite scarfing down the entire bag of chocolatey sugar wafers.... But that bag weighed 31 pounds!! Who knew clothes weighed that much?? And 32" - that's ummm 12x2=24 plus another 12" would be ummm 36" so this is like just over 2.5 feet tall. I'm looking here at the bag and it looks like its the same basic height and girth as a small child, older toddler!!
So ... Wow.... Something to wrap my head around. My dryer is calling. Thinking I'll take a photo later and edit it into this blog later.
Meanwhile I can feel my sinuses beginning to revolt.
