Hey! It's Sunday!

I never thought Sunday would get here!

I forgot to mention, yesterday, I received my two passes for the International Beauty Show at the Javits Center in NYC!

Again, this year, I will be trying to make my mark on the industry! I hand out more cards than the mailman at Christmas, but that's how it goes. I'm waiting to give it to the right person or the person who knows the right person or however it's going to go.

Last year, I was approached by a man who knew my name because of my tag with my business name on it. It was Michael Stevens from Nails International Magazine! How cool to finally get to meet him after working with him for a number of submissions for magazines around the world.

He told me that Patricia Yankee, Dashing Diva, was only a few rows over and that I should introduce myself to her. First of all, wait a minute! She runs Dashing Diva and is a consultant to numerous magazines and stuff, why would she care to meet me?

I went over, shook her and handed her a business card. Holy cow, what a nice woman. She seemed very down to earth and actually talked to me. She didn't seem to be rushing me at all.
Very nice person indeed!

Well, until tomorrow...

And, my nails still aren't done!

This is technically Saturday!

I had a brain fart and thought I blogged about my wonderful everything yesterday!

I worked till 2 and came home to find my new dishwasher, Fifi, wasn't working! I loaded it all up and hit the start button waiting for her to sing to me my favorite song, "When I'm washing dishes!".
I know, it's not a chart topper, but I love it!

I'll be back later to post for the day. A little cleaning, laundry and back pain management really take up a nice Sunday...wait, I mean Saturday!

Doing nails can take its toll on your physical health.

What can I say?! When I left the house this morning, without my nails done yet, the weather begged for them to be done. It was 13 degrees! Perfect weather to dry nails!

On another note, keep yourself in shape for doing nails. You may not think your physical self could be affected, but it can be. Trust me. I am going to physical therapy now for the bursitis in my shoulder (there's also 3 bone spurs).

I have issues with both elbows, right shoulder, back and both thumbs. Stretch, take breaks or whatever you have to do to make sure the thing you love to do doesn't become the thing you dread to do!

I am working through my aches and pains to pursue the career I am wanting so bad. I will be the "go to" nail tech/artist I so want to be!

So, it's Thursday. I've had 3 days off from work and haven't finished my nails yet! Their all filled, and "Frenched", but that's it! No design yet!
Too much cleaning to do. I should do it tonight. I have an interactive event at Michaels on Saturday and I NEED my nails to be done. You do know what I mean!
