I'm not sleeping...I'm just resting my eyes!

I haven't blogged in a while, and thought I would start my newest post with one of my favorite "Mom-isms." Did your mom every say this to you when you were little? I find myself using this phrase myself. Life has become pretty busy lately and naps are sounding like something that once existed in some far off fairytale land. I will be working part time at my husband's dental practice, still running my Etsy stores (which entails finding time to create...that's the hard part), house hunting, and attending meetings in various towns for a new church calling I just received that involves working with our Young Women's group (the teen girls age 12-18). I hope that I can do a good job of juggling everything and do well with the new journey I've been given. I will close with a common "Teen-ism." I have to laugh whenever I hear a teenager complain, "I'm bored!" Just wait a few more years and you will never utter that phrase again! Hope everyone has a fabulous week! I will do my best to pop in again soon. I am working on finishing a 3 part painting and will have some more brooches and hair accessories in my Etsy store soon!

A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day....

I started coming down with a nasty cold yesterday and feel a bit useless right now. I am a busy body by nature, and when an illness wipes me out and leaves me a foggy minded, sleepy, stuffy nosed person, I become extremely annoyed at that fact that I can not keep up with my to do list. I have decided to give in and try to sleep this thing off. I can't think straight and I am certainly not in the mood to paint, sew, or design some jewelry. So, off to la la land I go....hope everyone is doing well. Take those vitamins and if you are sick, stay home so you don't share it with someone else!
