Stream of Consciousness


Look at the fun little package I got from Hannah today! (Reciprocity in action, once again!)Diet Jello is one of my favorite diet "treats" (some of you are cringing) and a pedometer because I was admiring hers! I will wear it tomorrow and see how pathetic I am. I probably take 500 steps a day if I have my way.(Couch/Lifetime/TLC/scrapbooking=good day)So Thanks Hannah! I love fun mail, and thanks Jill for introducing me to it!
Today has been more a swirling vortex of time kinda day, but I enjoy it. I took another nap... I can't seem to get off of those lately! I always have other more important, productive or fun things to do, but the allure of a nap is so great. Especially when I think I only have the opportunity while I hae one child at home!
I really need to get a peephole. Sometimes you need to monitor who you open the door to, and I don't have that luxury- nay, I say right. Just now I was interrupted by 4 neighborhood kids who wanted to see my cats. I kept them at the door because Bella is napping, but they were still loud. That's the kind of visitor I would not have opened the door for at this particular moment.
So today I tried to resume my cleaning from yesterday, and I could not force myself to clean our upstairs bathroom. I reiterate the fact that I am a neat freak, not a clean freak. I suppose if it looks clean it's good enough for me sometimes. But picking up- man, I could pick up all day long. I could be on the Olympic picking up team, that's how good I am. When we have money (a common hopeful mantra uttered by myself) I will hire someone to clean for me.(Jill is cringing) I can pick up, wipe up, dust, vacuum.. I enjoy all of those things, but I will hire someone to scrub floors and clean my bathrooms. I just hate it.

Michelle and I went out today to get supplies for a project our mom has commissioned us for. We are to make 40 composition books, and possibly more in the future. It is kind of a big(ish) project, but not a bad way to make money, and oh how fun it will be to have spending money. Here's all the paper and ribbons we got. We decided to go with Chatterbox because it is hip, but still refined for the older crowd we may be catering to.
Incidentally, I have been blogging a bit less. I have been restraining myself to about 2 times a day, (going online at all) which is quite a cut back. IT has helped avoid swirling vortexes of time and obsessive checking of blogs. On my less busy days I will probably still be obsessive. I have a couple of topics waiting in the wings for those days.

I completely understand your love of naps. I didn't realize how tired I was today until I sat on the couch during Oprah, so I took a nap until dinner time. Now I'm rested, yet still have no motivation to finish my research paper. Funny how that happens. Good luck with your composition books; that sounds like a fun project!

Since when did you become a neat freak? I always thought you were like me...make sure to let things get so messy you can't see the carpet and by then it's fun to clean it up.

I got fired today! I'm happy about it though.

What a pleasing package from Hannah, it's nice to have fun friends isn't it?

The papers and ribbons are pleasing as well. I know you and Michelle are going to be composition-booked out by the time you're done with all of those, but how nice to earn some money doing something fun and at home. Make sure you post your book designs to show us.

I admire your self-control in limiting the amount of time you let yourself check blogs. That should definitely help curb the swirling vortex of time issues. I wish I had topics waiting in the wings. But alas, I do not.

Glad you got my package! It was fun sending out my first "good mail". The comp books sound fun for sure, glad you have something to earn a little extra money. I have days where the vortex doesn't get me and days where I almost can't control myself, so I too admire your self control. See you tonight at bookclub!!!

No kidding about that vortex thing. I just dropped off the kids at school, and I should finish getting ready for the day, as I have a Cub Scout planning meeting at 10 a.m. and a prom dress waiting to be finished, but alas, I couldn't help myself. The lure of blog checking combined with a quiet house (and no one to fight for computer use) was simply too great. It's your fault, you know!

What a cute package from Hannah! You'll have to let me know how you like the pedometer.
I'm excited to see your composition books when you're done. I love the paper and ribbon you chose.

Naps are high up on my list of favorite things. I would take one every day if I could. I cracked up when I saw Erin wondering when you became a neat freak. I remember going to your apartment and not being able to see much of the floor in your room. Quite a turnaround! Would that there were an Olympic picking-up event...

I wish I took more naps...I have a hard time falling asleep when its light outside though. Cute paper and ribbon-I saw those composition books at my local Target store today-I almost got one, but them put it back since it wasn't on my shopping list (I'm trying to curb my impulse buys...) Maybe next time!
