I feel like such a bad blogger lately! I keep trying not to post boring, complaining posts and well there you have it, I end up not posting. Hmm it's a sign lol. And also there is that whole Farmville thing and even my middle kid is on there now and OMG if someone needs to harvest their artichokes and you are on the computer all hell is going to break loose if you don't hurry up and get the fuck off.
Anyhow, I've been busy making bookmarks again. Love those holiday orders! I hadn't had any orders since the end of the school year and now I have a ton so busy busy doing that and then trying to tract down some paper requests. All the local scrapbook stores are gone now, which is really sad. I think the trend is moving towards digital scrapbooking (which I still have to try out), but there are still those of us that make "other things" out of scrapbook paper. I finally found what I was looking for at Michael's of all places, which really kind of annoys me since I should have just went there first. I had a bit of sticker shock when seeing that some of their single sheets of paper are $1.99. Can you imagine if you weren't paying attention and loaded up on that? One way to get you to move right on over to the paper stacks.
So all you non scrapbooker/paper crafters have probably left by now. And you aren't going to read that I saw some guy SPIT on his jeans yesterday and THEN wipe his face on it. I almost threw up when I saw him do it. He was sitting on the little curb in front of the gas station store. Most likely homeless, which is sad, but man have some dignity. I guess maybe you reach a point when you lose that all together.
Took Jessica in to get her eyes checked and new glasses ordered yesterday. $200 in all at Costco. You can't beat them if you don't have optical insurance. Her script has changed dramatically which means she wasn't just complaining all the time about not being able to see the tv just to annoy me. Go figure!
Next up is dentist and braces for her. Poor kid is a sophmore and I'm finally going to bite the bullet to get her in for braces, which once again we don't have insurance for (or dental at all). Hopefully I won't get laid off again and can actually afford to pay for them.
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is next week? Not sure if I posted here or not that I'm going to be cooking for the inlaws and we are having it at THEIR HOUSE. Still trying to decide how I'm going to work all that since I don't want to hang out at their house all day. I'm thinking I'll cook most of it at home then just take it over there. Wish me luck!Pin It
