The kids and I have been couch potatoes all weekend and we absolutely loved it! I thought I would go nuts but the weather has been rainy and cold. Perfect napping weather. Perfect weather to make book page rosettes for a wreath I have been working on.
My BFF asked me to participate in a craft fair at her work so I am excited and terrified at the same time. Excited because I truly enjoy making stuff, painting, adding glitter, just getting my hands dirty in general. Terrified of criticism and feedback. I will get over it but like writing, projects I create are personal to me and try as I may to learn from constructive criticism, I still cringe as if I am being attacked personally.
Which explains why I have not been to a writing conference in years but that’s a whole other post altogether.
I let the kids play video games and watch movies for a few hours at a time until I had to finally turn off the tv for them so they could… um, I don’t know… use their imagination? I even skipped my usual Zumba class on Saturday morning! Sacre bleu!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I started writing a handful of short stories all centered around love. I was even planning on posting one a day during the month of February.
And then my laptop broke and I realized the importance of backing up all of your info on your computer. You’d think I would have learned my lesson in college but no, apparently I didn’t.
Fortunately I found an app by my web host that makes it much easier to update my blog via iPad. Blah blah blah… This means I can share pics much easier. That pic above was right before I got married. I know you love the cheetah print…
Speaking of LOVE, what are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Though my hubby is across the country I still nag him about the holiday but not in the way you think.
I told him, of all of sweet sentiments you can find in a jewelry store or at a flower shop, I wanted him to make me a Valentine. I’m so excited. It is in the mail. Maybe I will share it with you. Maybe I won’t.
What I will share with you is this awesome scene I found in the boy’s room yesterday. It has absolutely nothing to do with Valentine’s Day and is somewhat disturbing depending on your sense of humor. The second pic was saved in my pic library by one of the girls. I am not sure how they know how to do everything on this thing but they learn so quickly.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Happy Valentine’s Day!
