What a week!

And it’s only Wednesday … Oy Vay!  Woke up from my ‘nap’ on Monday to find my main/house computer dying.  So, I spent most of Tuesday trying to fix it, before accepting probable death and sending it off to the repair store to (hopefully) retrieve several years worth of documents, contacts and photos … DOH!  …

So, it must be that time of year …

That’s my excuse, anyway.  I’m scouring, learning and obsessing over jewelry making again.  (In the non-fused glass, non-chain-maille sort of way …)  This means I have a new wholesale account with yet another company … (Um, no actual purchases yet, just a lot of dreaming.  It’s good to be prepared!)   Yep, I know.  I need …

Back to Reality …

Although – LOTS of times, our reality is pretty AWESOME! We have puppies … Yep, Zeus is a first-time dad, and DH is strutting around, ready to pass out cigars – he is so proud of HIS BOY!    Thirteen new bundles of wrinkles and puppy breath added to our ‘den’.  Mom is already eating and …

Another Deadline Met …

And now, we can close the books on Christmas 2012.  It was touch and go there for a bit, as DH and I were struggling to get to the bottom of the punch list, while enlisting the aid of our ALL-TOO-EAGER teenage offspring.  But we made it, had a fun family evening and my Martha …

Busy … what else is new

WWU: I love this* … it so appeals to the sarcastic me.  Oh how I wish we could implement it at work.  I’m including a copy from the internet, as I don’t know who to credit for this brilliance! (I saw a printed copy being passed around at work … if you know – please …

Stolen studio time …

What a week!  But, I don’t have to work tomorrow (friend’s wedding) – AND I was able to carve out some studio time (it’s what insomniacs do) … so, a good week!  [Throw in an unexpected visit to my grandparents, two ‘fast food’ meals – YUM!!!, and home made Nacho’s – loaded, of course!] I’m …

But I love it … grumble, grumble

Not having a fun week.  Too busy.  I didn’t get my chores done in time to go to a work outing tonight (- ER folks know how to have some fun too, darnit!).  AND – I’m missing my studio! [Lower lip sticking out, feet stomping] But – my week is full of puppies, family time …

Cold studio … But

… I am ready for Christmas II (with my dad’s side of the family) … Yep, the house is in order, presents made and wrapped (I can FINALLY put away my wrapping paper for the year), laundry ALL caught up (no small feat with a family our size), puppy photo-shoot/correspondence complete for the week … …

Productive … but not with glass

Darn it!  But – I did just pay the bills.  “The house is ours for another 30 days, honey” – I yelled out to DH, as I do every month.  And, I saw my primary care physician today … I get to enjoy reduced premiums for another year.  Plus – I’ve lost a couple of …
