This is a random post, a potpourri of things, like a big pot of vegetable soup.
My head is full and stuffy, so I'm not really thinking clearly.
I caught a cold from my kids,
the lure of carbohydrates was Too much for me, and I had a bite of a sick kids mac and cheese.
I've spent the past 2 days laying in bed as much as humanly possible for a mom.
Today My son woke up and informed me that he wanted to take part in the 5K big house/big heart run at the U of M football stadium.
not something I really wanted to do when I was feeling like C.R.A.P. but I did it because he really wanted to do it, and It was for a good cause.
I am really happy I went.
It was a beautiful day, and It gave me a nice time to just walk and think about things.
deep thoughts, shallow thoughts, and everything in between.
oh, and I did just WALK it, I didn't run. I couldn't run, I was ill, that's my excuse.
it was a neat experience, there were 1,000's of people there, a big sea of people at the starting line, all shapes and sizes.
We wound our way through the streets of campus and ended up running through the tunnels at the Football stadium and out onto the big honkin' field.
just running (me,fast walking) through that tube gave me such a thrill, I imagined what it must be like for those football players to come down that tunnel and blast out onto the field. it was pretty cool.
but then again, I was kind of embarrassed having all of those people looking at me as I am hobbling and sniffling my way to the finish line in my ungraceful attempt at exercise.
I am really trying to beef up my exercise regime because I have managed to gain a few pounds back from that 60lbs that I initially lost.
17 pounds found it's way back to my rear end.
I think it actually may be my right and left hemispheres of my brain because half the time I think my head's up my A** so that's gotta be where that weight went to right? ;)
So Now i've become obsessed with trying to get it off.
is it bad that I am trying to document my rear end?
how shallow is that? I should CLEARLY be cleaning my bedroom!
but hey! I guess it's a welcome break from the depressing news and economy woes on T.V.
i wanted to just try and capture it's size so i can plaster it on the front of my refrigerator door to try and keep me out of there.
now I am sharing it with you, aren't I nice?
By now, you must think I am high on cold medicine.
SO moving on, besides documenting my hiney, I have been making those number pillows and shipped off a few.
I have been trying to think of a fair way to sell them.
for now I have been just emailing the people who contacted me
months ago, and kind of going down in the order in which I received them because I want to be fair.
can anybody think of a better way i could do it?
should I just have a sign up sheet for them, with what number you'd like?
right now I am just making the following because they are the most popular.
I don't know what the best way to proceed is. let me know if you have any brilliant ideas! (because remember where my brain is)
Also, I am working on re-configuring some elements to my website...anybody have a good place to find cute icons, or pictures for web buttons?
let me know!
so that's it for now....i'm just plugging along at wrapping up some special orders, blowing my nose, obsessing about my hindquarters,
and making some new goodies to share with you soon.
So even though my head is clogged, the ideas are still flowin'.
oh, and i thought I would share another nice little write up I had in the current issue of Detroit Homes magazine!
it was so nice to be featured there!
I was actually fairly pleased with the picture he took,
most of the times I HATE my picture. or having my picture taken... I am NOT photogenic.
but he managed to make my bags disappear, and for that I am eternally grateful.
o.k., so on that TRULY shallow note, I am off to watch more coverage on Paul Newmann, *sniff*
I really, truly miss that guy.
what a remarkable human being indeed.
