ok, the blog is good to go for now, I know it could be more exciting, but at least it's got a profile pic and a banner. I don't know why but the profile never did work the way it was supposed to. I was just determined that I was not going to quit, so I'm happy now that it's done. I'm not great with photoshop either, and I've been scared to mess around with it, but that part was pretty painless. So I had that achy eye/ head -staring at the computer screen for too long thing when I got done.
I have to go back to the doctor today for a really annoying infection that they didn't take care of the first time. They said, Oh, we think it's this, and I knew it wasn't, and had to go through the once a year yucky exam, and they treated me for the thing that it wasn't anyway. So it's been a week, and I still feel lower abdominal pain and have to go to the bathroom every 5 seconds, and I'm going back in there today. Someone will pay! JK, but I pray that it gets fixed, because it's kind of ruining my vacation.
I haven't seen much of my daughter lately, which kind of depresses me. We go through these little waves of having fun hanging out together, and then not so much. It seems that when you're 14, you'd rather be anywhere, even it it's Mars, as long as you're not at home. It's funny because I've been so enjoying being at home. Sleeping in, sitting and having tea, watching Mad About You and the Nanny reruns that are on during the day. (We don't have cable, not because of the expense, but I think between the 3 of us, the tv would never shut off). I'd be addicted to HGTV for sure, and I'd be nervous to think what my daughter would watch- not healthy stuff I'm sure. There is bad enough stuff on regular tv sometimes.
Well, I did manage to make one thing yesterday in between relaxing, grilling, and driving Sasha to and fro. I really like how it turned out, and I'm crazy in love with this Martha Stewart Smoky quartz glitter!

~I really like the unusual wire bail I made, and one of my tiny fabric flowers~
Darn, I keep forgetting I have to be in Firefox to make links and stuff, it just doesn't work in Safari. That was the main problem with making changes to my header- you have to have Internet Explorer or Firefox, or some of the icons that are supposed to be there are just not there. Anyway, I have this glitter in 3 colors now, and I love, love, love it, but the only bad thing is, no matter how careful I am, it finds it's way onto everything. My face, my hair, my clothes, other people. I'll look over at my husband, and he'll have a tiny touch of glitter on his face. Oops!
I saw this little tray at Michael's yesterday where there is a hole tube thingy on one end, and when you get done glittering whatever you're doing, you just pour it through the tube back into the container. It was $7.99, and I was thinking, How is that very different from what I do now? The stuff will still stick to EVERYTHING on the planet anyway!
I know the new martha stewart stuff is kind of pricey, but the glitter is about the same as your every day run-of-the-mill glitter, so I just treat myself sometimes. Simple pleasures, eh? ~caio for now, girls~
