I really should not be watching infomercials into the night. While, I do have to add that "into the night" means - into 10pm, these infomercial marketers have figured out how to slip them in earlier in the evening. And it works! Because they can catch infomercial addicts such as myself who are simply channel surfing while folding laundry at night.
I think I've seen every infomercial known to man and have almost picked up the phone with every single one. Gullible - yes, I am. Though, in all fairness, the workout DVDs I have purchased in the past have previously done wonders for me, so no regrets there. But the Orange Glo? And Rich Dad, Poor Dad? That would be another set of stories in themselves.
Have you taken a watch at those Irenew bracelets? I thought they were ridiculous initially, but after watching the infomercial, the subliminal messages started to sink in. It doesn't take long people. This is why I am a great MLM party plan customer. Scrapbook, Homewares, Stamping, Basket reps can spot me from afar.
I almost picked up the phone. I really, really almost did, because who wouldn't want naturally balanced energy? And to not feel like you need a caffeine drip to make it through the end of the day when the kids ask me such difficult questions like, "what's for dinner?". I was stumped with that one yesterday. And if you knew me, you know that is a bad, bad thing, since I am a compulsive dinner planner.
But. I didn't. And not just because Dave Ramsey has gained a seat at our table, but because I think Hubby may turn me into IA (Infomercial Anonymous), of which I would probably ascend to as President.
Instead, I made myself my own bracelet, named appropriately as : Icangetittogether bracelet.
I used memory wire, pearl seed beeds and cute flower beads I purchased last year. Super fast to put together; just quick enough that after I put it on, Baby J summoned and I was back into my night routine.
And guess what? I woke up this morning and knew exactly what to make for breakfast. It's working see?
Nod with me....
