Oh, wait. Yes, I did. Just not this one.
I’d been taking an online class on how to start an online store. It looked like the best option for our current situation: husband is about to finish a construction job without a new one on the horizon & me not quite up to speed in my voiceover business meant we would soon be drawing on our home equity line of credit for living expenses. Ouch.
I had my store all planned – I’d chosen my product line and bought a domain name. I was in pretty deep.
I can’t say I’ve tried everything, but I’ve certainly tried enough. My last purchase was a $99 bottle of night cream by a famous direct sales cosmetic company from a cute and very pregnant gal who came to my house to give me a “free” consultation. I wanted to help her by buying something, and I believe my words were, “well, I’m always looking for a night cream that works for me.” I know you feel my pain.
My mother, bless her heart, used to go to bed every night with her face greased up with cold cream. I don’t know how she didn’t slide off the bed onto the floor, really. I was looking for something, but not willing to go to those lengths to correct what was happening to my face.
And what was happening to my face, anyway? Well, in a nutshell – I was looking in the mirror and thinking, wow do I look tired! And old. And worn out. And… like my daddy. Gaaaah! I love you, dad, but I was more hoping to look like my beautiful mama as I aged and not you, sorry.
And so, the progression of night creams and systems continued. Until I saw that Facebook post. The one where a man talked about how great his skin looked after using NeriumAD for less than a month.
I believe my next words went something like, HOW SOON CAN I GET SOME????
