I don't get sick very often. I go, go, go all the time, even when I'm sitting still, so when it hits me, it really hits me. I have some nasty thing that took up residence in my chest right now... basically, it feels like a 200 pound man is sitting on my lungs. So I might not be around the blog much the remainder of this week, because I'm going to rest up and kick this thing in the tail. But please leave me comments to keep me company! Seriously.... talk about whatever.. the weather, I don't care. I'm feeling cooped up. I'm missing bible study today. I miss swimming with Nurse Nicki in the mornings. I miss doing stuff. I miss breathing! But to be honest, I probably needed this break. I wrapped up all but two of my custom orders yesterday, and though I've got a dozen things to finish and list in my Etsy shop... it's not happening any time soon.
out loud about it because it seems like every time I say I enjoy a show, it turns quickly into a morally questionable show that I have to quit watching, and I'm certain Pan Am won't disappoint on that front if I keep watching it long enough. Dangit. I only saw two episodes and was smitten with the clothes and hair though. Adorable.
Mickey mouse now that I really look at it. Which makes me laugh. Cause I'm not really a mickey mouse kinda girl. I really like it though. Please take note of the tired face and bags under my eyes. Perhaps if I point them out, y'all will feel really sorry for me. Have I ever mentioned that I'm the biggest baby on the planet when I'm sick? Yep. I am. I actually cry. Who does that?
using them. I did get him a funny card though. No one can say I'm not romantic.
bedding from Pottery Barn. I might be a little bit giddy for you guys to see it. His room has been long overdue for an update, and his quilt is about nine years old, ratty, and the dog's favorite bed, so I thought it was time we freshened things up for him. He's super excited, and he's been having a rough time of it lately so this mini room re-do is a little love to his heart, from me. I painted him an old, green, truck for his room, since my Ava got the ruby slippers. He wanted some "Mama art" in his room too. I'll have prints of it on Etsy soon, but to be honest, prints are always slightly darker than the original paintings, and in this case, that didn't turn out nearly as well as I'd have liked it to. The original is absolutely darling, but converted to print, it has way too much darkness and green for my liking. Dangit! (Not saying you won't like them, and I'll still put it out there... but I'm bummed it didn't turn out as cute as it really is.)
Speaking of being bummed about prints... because of Picnik closing in April, I used some of my advertising capital, and bought Photoshop Elements. I might pull every single one of my hairs out over it too. Everyone says it will get easier. I think they are all liars. So far, I have not been able to edit one single photo. Not one. I have no idea where to begin once I've uploaded it. I sit and stare at it, none of it makes sense and I end up nearly in tears and just exit. Am I really that stupid, or is it just that I'm sick and need to quit doing things? How is there no directions on how to use this thing anywhere? Maybe I'll spend the rest of my sick leave figuring that out.
Or I might just read all your comments like a magazine, and go take a nap on my new pillows.
