Too Pooped to Pop

My mom used to say that: Too pooped to pop. Did she make that up or did everyone say it? Anyway, that's what I am today. There was much to do to organize a fundraising campaign to help Jenise, besides all the emotion and shock of having my dear friend badly injured. So too pooped to pop is what I am today.

I'm holding a benefit Restorative Yoga Class on Saturday, where all the donations will go to Jenise, so I am saving my energy up for that. So I'm going to take a bloggibreak through this weekend. I'll probably come visit you at some point, but I don't plan to post.  Your sweet, supportive comments have been much appreciated throughout this week. Thanks so much. Have a lovely weekend, and stay safe!

P.S. If you think to tell your friends about the half-price e-Book promotion for The Christmas Village on Smashwords through this week, that would be appreciated.

XOXO

  1. That was a common phrase in our family as well.

    1. It must have been "of the times." Do you think it came from popcorn that didn't pop? Or - I wonder the origin. Something to look into!

  2. My mom used to say that all the time, too. It's one of those expressions you take for granted, I guess. I just looked it up and it was the title of a Chuck Berry song in the 60s - maybe that's where it came from.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. I hope she is able to recover soon. I have a cousin named Jenise. It's not a name you see too often.

    Hope you're doing well otherwise!

    1. It's a very unusual name isn't it? I'm doing fine otherwise - it's just been an overwhelming week, but ultimately satisfying. We've already sold a lot of Jenise's handmade jewelry at the studio and it's only been there a few hours! Hope you are well too xoxo

  4. I've never heard that expression before, but I am a Brit, so that probably explains it. I'm sure your friend will appreciate your effort and love.
