HAPPY NEW YEAR, HONS!

Can you believe it is 2015 already? And the 19th!! How did that happen?

First, let me welcome my friends from Beijing, China who are new regular visitors here!! Nice to see you! My best to June. And thank you so much for the dumplings and feng shui charms. Really sweet.

Next, I must let you know that I have been egregiously lax and it has been remiss of me not adding regular posts here and I do apologize from the bottom of my heart. I have excuses!! I’ve been so busy with helping my son with school and my adorable husband with staying adorable. The demands for laundry, driving, waiting and day-to-day things has increased at least tenfold, hons, and let me just say it right here. I am pooped out most of the time.

For today’s tips then, let me offer some helpful aids to keep yourself awake during the drowsy moments of the day:

wake up

~Pack a baggie full of ice and put it in an insulated lunch bag and keep it in your car. When you feel drowsy on your drive home from work, dump that cold water over your head. Not only will it wake you up, the uncomfortable feeling of being wet will insure you get home safely to change.

~Ladies, do NOT wear padded bras. Not only do they make you look unnaturally smooth, it’s much harder to pinch your nipples to stay awake at your desk or behind the wheel. Men – you don’t have this problem. I would hope. Anyway.

~Prepare funny pranks for work. Get a whoopie cushion and take it into the bathroom. Wait in one of the stalls. When you hear someone else come in, let it rip!

~At work, do yoga¬†at your desk. For extra stimulating fun, wear stockings and a garter belt under a skirt. This will liven up everybody’s day. Especially if you are a man.

If you have any helpful tips of your own, please leave them in the comments. And, dear Chinese friends, please leave them in English. Most readers here read and write in English. It was difficult enough understanding your phone calls. Many thanks.

I hope you all enjoyed happy, safe holidays with loved ones and…family.

Kisses!

SMA
