Monday blahs. What? It's Tuesday???
What do you mean today is Tuesday? What did y'all do with Monday?
Oh yeah, it passed us by. I was at home hanging onto our couch for dear life. Sick again. I'm really sick of being sick, you know?
And can I just say, between us friends, that 6 straight hours of Barney and Dora will make one start to wonder "when does puberty start?" Sad to say. Yes, I allowed my beautiful, creative child to watch television all day. I was sick. I'm saving money for therapy already. Don't worry.
So today I'm back at work trying to actually work. It's hard when all you want to do is go home and hang onto your couch some more. I did take a moment to open up my Google Reader where I stay in touch with all of my bloggy friends. It's a little overwhelming to see it say "Google Reader (1000+)" meaning over a 1,000 posts are sitting there waiting for my peepers to behold them. Man, you guys sure do have a lot to say, don't cha?
But one highlight of the past few days is finding a new blog jewel. I love it when I stumble (no pun intended to Stumble) upon a new blog that I know will become a favorite. If you have the chance, take a minute or 30 to visit Who's Watching the Baby? The blogger, Kristen, had me at hello...no, that's a lie. I was interested when I read her post featuring a balloon wreath but then got hooked after I took a sec and read her blog tag line - "Get your own juice, Mommy's blogging". And then her blog button with "Craft Orphan" just sealed the deal. Kristen and I seem to have the same sense of humor and you gotta love any gal that's twisted. Kristen isn't paying me to say all of this. She isn't even aware of this little ditty yet. I just really like to support other great blogs out there and am hoping to make this more of a regular thing here on Bean's blog. I'm nothing if not supportive, dang it!
In another post, Kristen talked about hitting a project block. I think I'm in the same boat. I just made a tutu and also went to my monthly card making class. I will post pictures of what we made this week. I think I finally did an okay job on the cards. I've been meaning to share all of our card class projects but was never really happy with my results. But this month I think they turned out really nicely. Maybe I'm finally learning something after a year and a half.
I wanted to make Bean a St. Patrick's Day shirt to wear so she wouldn't get pinched for not wearing green. I didn't get to so now she's on her own. Oops! Anyone else out there hitting a block of some kind - writing or crafting? I hear it's contagious!
