Organic Style

Have you ever subscribed to a magazine that you loved so much that you got all giddy and excited when you found it in your mailbox each month? This has happened to me a couple of times...First when I subscribed to George magazine. After JFK, Jr. died, it tried to make it on its own then was discontinued shortly after. I still have every copy of that magazine.

Mary bought me a subscription to The New Yorker once, and I loved it so much but felt so guilty when I wasn't able to read it completely before the next issue arrived. Because I couldn't keep up, I had to cancel the subscription when it came time to renew.

For the past couple of years or so, I have subscribed to Organic Style magazine, and I have loved every single page of every single issue. Some issues I read over and over again. This magazine has everything I've ever wanted, it is my magazine. Great recipes and health tips, every tip in the world for how to live a 'greener' life, stories about amazing men and women who are doing amazing things in this world to make it a better's just chock full of goodness. I love it.

Today, I got a note in the mail from them that said the October issue (that I've already received) would be the last issue. They also returned my check for my next year's subscription. I'm sitting here wondering how I can be so attached to a magazine? I'm very upset about not receiving another issue, ever again.

There are thousands of magazines out there...surely I can find one that compares. I just don't think I will. I've never round anything like it before. Before it goes away completely, go online to the Organic Style Web site and see all the great articles out there.

Wednesday stuff.

Have I mentioned already that I've been eating ham sandwiches for the last couple of weeks, thinking it was turkey? I asked for turkey at the deli, so I never thought to look. I was wondering why it was so tasty. I like to heat my sandwiches up in the microwave for about 10 seconds when they've been in the fridge all morning. I just don't like a cold sandwich.

I am not the only person who has some issues or obsessions with poop. One of my very close friends at work, when pissed off by someone, says he's going to "launch a bean turd" at them. Use your imagination. It's disgusting. Sometimes he just says he's going to leave them a "desk dookie".

There is a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup on my desk, and it has been there for a couple of weeks. It's gone uneaten. This is amazing, I think.

I have to travel too much this month. I used to love traveling for work, before I was married. Now, I just want to be home with Todd, Jack and Lily...when I'm not traveling it seems like we have no time to just be home and do nothing. Two trips this month necessitate a Sunday flight that means two weekends this month are shot already. Argh.

Watch your mailboxes, kids. A couple of you may be getting a little sussie in the mail this week.

I just lost an entire post.

It was about lots of things...Todd's grandmother being in the hospital and my ability to diagnose her with all of my hospital-themed prime time television watching experience, how I've determined that I'm grossly underpaid after visiting this Web site, and how I heard Jack peeing on the floor in the living room while I was in the guest bedroom working. I heard it. Which means it was coming out onto the carpet with some force. He never potties inside anymore, I have no idea why he did it. He'd just been out 45 minutes earlier. Then, while I was on a conference call he was barking so loudly that I had to lock him in one room and head to the other side of the apartment in order to finish the call without yelling. I don't know what's gotten into him today...But finally, he is asleep. And dreaming.
