woohoo! spring break... gimme a break! aside from not having to drive to school, it's actually more boring. i've been brewing a cold since saturday and now i'm just stuffy-headed and coping. i hate taking medicine because of how it makes me feel. i hope i come out of it soon. i need to work on my cards. think i'll get out my stuff today. not sure about my cd options. sorry gals, i'll figure out something.
i actually set a date. i set a date!!! april 30. b-day. normality is the light at the end of the tunnel. colored contacts, miss clairol, crest whitestrips - not really mother nature, but have you seen her lately? kind of hagged out isn't she? that's not for me!
i've been sick the past few days - marbles in my throat thing. didn't want to bum anyone out. i went with a friend to my consult yesterday. all went very well. i was very comfortable and everyone was very nice. so it was a good experience. we'll see what happens. please buy my stuff. if you want a hat in adult size, let me know, maybe i can accommodate. laters.
went over to a friend's house last nite and watched 2/3 of van helsing (yea, hugh jackman!), then switched over to bend it like beckham. all while eating nachos we had made and topping it off with some french silk ice cream. fun stuff. i think i have a friend who'll go with me to my consult. so excited! i know this wasn't profound, but ...
yesterday, i went to oma's (grandmother) house. she needed some mousetraps set in the garage and, after clearing out a cupboard aka mouse hilton, i set the traps. she asked me about her headboard, where a pin was coming loose; and i fixed that, too. we actually caught 2 mice, and the amazing thing is that she was impressed that i could set traps. even better, she told my husband she was even more impressed that i fixed her bed. feels good.
so, i haven't sold anything...yet. but i just keep making stuff. i hope someone buys something soon, i need the funds. my wardrobe is in a right state and the overwhelming non-options are, well, overwhelming. i watched a jim gaffigan special on comedy central the other nite and i got a stomachache from laughing so hard. my birthday is coming soon and i just don't know how to feel. besides old-ish. i find myself looking more at the wrinkle creams than funky eyeshadow. do women still use eyeshadow? i've wanted to try that eye-color intensity one - is it almay? maybe it will take the attention off the fact that i've broken out. give me a break, does this ever end? it's like that commercial - your mother's wrinkles, your daughter's pimples. i just want to enjoy a stage of life where i'm not terribly self-conscious about myself, not trying to fit in somewhere, but not out of the picture yet. i'd like to just be. and be happy at that. just be.
i started adding items to my 'online' store. the link is, well, coming soon since i'm experiencing a slight technical difficulty, but i'm on etsy.com. anyway, my necklaces i've named cotton candy and i also listed my infant hats. so excited. hope the dough starts rolling in soon!
last night i started making knitted infant caps. i plan to sell them on ebay and wherever else i can sneak them in. i'm also working on my new neck fringe necklaces (pictures coming soon). i've got to get this to work.
This is my first time blogging. Kind of exciting - even though no one will ever read this. Like my book. Well, that's not a fair statement since I'm blocked on my book and I'm still writing it. Anyway, hope some of my friends will visit me.
