Insomnia Post

Or otherwise known as,
The Ramblings of a Crazy Woman
So here goes,
To start with,
the pic above is the start of a tutorial that I will be posting
later today
or tomorrow
or
well, I have good intentions.
It will be for these sheep,
when it happens.

To start with,
this is totally being blamed on day seven
of
Prednisone.
Can't sleep,
but on the up side,
I don't think that I have been mean at all.
That might be yet to come.
But then again,
it might be due to too much on my mind,
and a little too much to do,
which I am trying to work through quietly
while
JWS slumbers peacefully.

So to start,
and this was a success so far this er..
morning,
night
whatever it is.
Gmail
I think that I managed to get all my personal stuff.
Blogger
Pinterest
Facebook
switched to Gmail.
Truthfully,
there was too much jamming up my work email.
It really needed separated.
Plus,
I could not get my other email on my phone.
Gmail seems to work.
One thing done,
hopefully.

Second,
yesterday I finally realized,
after fighting my contacts for a month of not seeing real well,
that I had two left contacts in!
Don't ask me how this happens,
if I knew I would change it.
Life just gets a little confusing sometimes.
And then
it is a downhill slope when you can't see right.
Happy to report,
I can see great now!

Third,
Yesterday, Feb. 22nd,
I managed to take the motorcycle for a little trip down the road.
Gotta love that first little circle of the spring.
Makes me want summer even more,
but for right now...
I was froze when I got home!

Fourth,
entitled
Knock Me Over With A Feather
Last Friday,
I am on the Dialysis Run, waiting and haunting
one of my favorite thrift shops
when I get a call from JWS.
He starts by telling me that what he is about to say is going to shock me.
Really shock me.
I think that maybe we should do this in person.
Because after all this is one of my favorite shops
and I don't want it shrouded in a
memory
of a
traumatizing, life-changing epiphany,
Might as well save those for non-fun places like the dentist's office.
Then he informs me that someone called from the school and they wanted to know
if we could house students (teenagers)  for a weekend
for the regional band conference.
I say,
"Yes, I have had the calls and letters and told them no because
I knew you wouldn't agree to it."
And he says.
"Well, we have kids coming, this sounds like fun!"
My comment,
"WHO ARE YOU AND WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH MY HUSBAND?"

So this morning,
I am cleaning
and laying out towels
and making a grocery list
and
getting ready for
four teenage girls to arrive tonight.
It has been years since I have had four teenage girls in the house.
It was fun then,
but I am much older now.
I might need a nap this afternoon.

Still with me? 
Let's see..
Happy news.
Create and Decorate took two more of my projects for issues this year.
No pics of those at their request.
My daughter, Shelby turns 30 today.
Where did those years ago?
I am meeting my Blog and Facebook friend, Beverley today
in person for the first time.
We are taking a painting class together in Virginia in August
and decided to have brunch together today,
while I am on the Dialysis run.
I can't wait to meet her in person!

I think that is all.
I am off to take my nativity set down.
Shouldn't that have already been done?

i luv sheep. I so hope I can figure out the tutorial when you post it but I'm sure they wont look as good as yours.

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

Whew....you must be sleeping by now dear lady! lol
Your tall sheep are wonderful...oh to have such a talent! I always wished I could paint but it never came out...must still be buried really deep.
I love GMAIL...I haven't had many spams or bad e-mails come through...they are very good at filtering.
Enjoy your meeting with your blog friend. That's always a fun thing when we meet those we only chat with on the internet.

Am I really this far behind again?? Yikes. How does this happen? Never mind. Perhaps if I could stay up until 4:53 AM and keep on going like Cyclonic Cathy, I'd stay caught up. Kind of funny - I'm so far behind I forfeited the GP book in Shelia's giveaway since I hadn't visited her for an eternity either - and look who won it! ;o) So happy for you that you did - glad Shelby enjoyed it. And, ahhh - that's who those girls were! Guess I should have started from the bottom up. Glad to hear/see you survived. Hope your week is off to a great start. Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (PS - Congratulations on your latest entries for C&D - can't wait to see!)
