Hey Sweet Monkees.

It’s come to my attention that many Monkees are also entrepreneurs. One of the rules in our Momastery is that business dies here, which I think is a good rule because it helps us view each other as potential friends instead of potential customers. This is important. But I thought it might be fun if we lifted the ban this weekend and had ourselves a Monkee Business Day, or three. Because I looooove me some women who are moving and shaking and putting some bacon on the table, and I like to support those women. I also loooove women who are providing no bacon, like, for example, me. Please understand that I’m not making a judgment about bacon providers or no bacon providers, God, no. Let’s not go there again. As a matter of fact, I’m not allowed to eat bacon anymore and we all know that even if I were, I wouldn’t know how to fry it. You do fry bacon right? Anyway, enough about bacon. I’m not sure how we got so off topic. I’m sweating again.

I love you Monkees, and I want to help you in any way I can. I think that’s all I’m trying to say. So in an effort to support and honor all Monkee endeavours, let’s try this today… let’s lift the business ban. I’d like to know what it is that ya’ll do and sell because I like buying things from people who are trying hard not to be jerks. I think non-jerks are lovely people with whom to do business.

If you’d like to, please leave a link to your business, non-profit, blog . . . whatever you’d like us to check out and/or a description in the comments section. Also, if you’re looking for a job, that might also be good to mention. ALSO…please leave the same the information on the Momastery Facebook Page and once you leave it there, the page will archive your link and Monkees will be able to search for you at their convenience. Maybe Jeanette or Jennifer could think of some cool way to organize the Monkee Businesses on the FB page because they seem smart at that.

I pray I have offended no one in any sort of bacony way with all of this Monkee Business.

I love you all. Have a WONDERFUL weekend.

Love, G

Dear Monkees,

Have you had a baby sister that is 5 years younger than you and you feel like you LOVE her but you don’t like it as much as you like her when she messes something up that you are doing? I do. Her name is Amanda. Amma for short. My mom changes her name SOSOSOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many times. once she was Tessa, then Amme, then Amanda, then, the weirdest of all, Scout!!!!! SCOUT, I tell you!

But when Amma messes up my stuff, it’s only something that comes with life. It’s human-natural. And sometimes, when you are in the middle of that time, you just have to let it go. Right now, I’m at the middle of that stage, so, can I tell you a secret: I sort of wish that it’s 22 years later from now. [heehee.]
