That time of year …

But first – here are some of the bulbs I made in the glass blowing class with my sister.  We had a great time, and now we’re looking at other classes to take. It is THAT time of year, so tax prep is well underway.  I’m hoping we can pull them together within the next …

Getting Stuff Done …

Slowly, but surely!  We did a bit of spring cleaning in the studio, as my packaging room was over-run with more boxes than I would ever need for shipping.  There is no before photo, but trust me – it was crazy out-of-control.  And, I tried to reorganize one of my storage/display shelves … There is …

So – It’s not all bad …

We met the tax-day deadline (umm, with 30+ hours to spare!)!  And, while Uncle Sam wasn’t so nice to us this year,  I don’t have to look for another job just yet.  Meanwhile … DH was busy all day Monday when a major pipe thawed (AND busted) by the barn.  Fortunately, we caught it minutes …

What to do when you can’t go to glass expo/Vegas …

Spring Cleaning … Also known as: What to do when you are avoiding grown-up responsibilities (although, I DID get my nursing competencies done … and – hey,  I have 6 [count THEM … S-I-X !!!] more DAYS until taxes are DUE! … It’s called procrastination, people – EMBRACE IT!!!) … So … I can’t be …

How to prepare?

A box of tissues or bottle of champagne???  Off we go to the tax man to see if we win or lose.  Fingers crossed!

Please read all instructions carefully …

This means you, doofus!  Or, more specifically, ME!  I am currently the [not so] proud owner of about 5 pounds of seed potato pearls in every possible size from 3.5mm-5mm.  All because I figured those instructions I’d printed out were for the more challenged of my creative  counterparts … NOPE!  At one point, I had …

Cabin Fever?

We have so many great things going on right now, and yet: We have puppies (and they’re so stinkin’ cute)!    And a houseful of mood swings/raging hormones – thanks to twin teenagers … I’m finally growing skin/healing! Yay!!!  And, it’s tax season …    I’ve made some new bracelets, learned new patterns!    And, …

Gathering as we grow …

WWU:  Someone decided it would be a good idea to have me as acting charge nurse this past weekend … WTH?!?  Such a silly notion!  But we got through, and outside of a huge THANK YOU to my co-workers, I have nothing more to report.  [My therapist thinks just a few more sessions required to …

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 …

Ahhhh … for the moment

Maggie is back to her fat-healthful-state.  The taxes are done, now to make the appointment.   And it’s time to get ready for work … I can’t imagine life possibly getting any better … Yeah … ok … maybe a thing or two …
