For A Thousand Years

I am having one of those mornings where I really feel that had my alarm clock not been set, I would have slept forever, no seriously...not sure if I would have ever woken up.

Grudgingly I got out of bed with what felt like the weight of a toil of a thousand years of work still beating down on me, and I have no idea why.

I spent all yesterday packaging things and then packaging some more, no time for creative fun, but I am trying to get as much parceling done before the "mean cheese" invasion which it happening in 9 hours and 12 minutes to be exact.

As you know, last time we had her there was a bit of an "incident" with my art supplies, since then my bubs and I have taken precautions to get my supplies out of the way and into the bedroom where she does not go.

You see, I have had 2 weeks to complete this project, and it's still not done, as I kept thinking "oh, I have two weeks, I will do it tomorrow".

it never happened, we are in a state of flux at the moment.

Also because of the injury to my bubs' thumb and the fact that he missed work this week and he will be missing some work next week too because of our trip, he is working for the next seven days straight. (for at least part of the time.

I am thinking about taking her to the park the next door, though frankly it is a bit sketchy for a woman to go there alone with a child, I might brave the dreaded hillbilly and gangster wars that take place there so the mean cheese can swing on the swings for a jillion years.

But here is my fear and worry....that lil cheesy will get stung by a bee (she's very allergic) and I also fear that the her mom will have not packed her epi pen, and then I will be forced into action, and for that matter...panic.

I saw My Girl...I remember what happened to little Maculay Culkin in that movie....bee allergies are no good.

I am probably working myself into fits for nothing...

today I will be spending the day working on a commission project for the lovely and talented miss Vanessa Valencia and proceed to mean cheese proof the house, and then...more packaging.

I am showcasing today a bunch of the new pieces I have in my shop, I will be listing a couple other goodies today too.

chat with you all soon....

Oh wow! Yes, I would be worried about a bee sting too. Is it warm enough there yet for bees to be out? I don't know; just wondering. Just be careful and I'm sure everything will be fine. I'm sure her Mom will remember to pack the Epi-Pen. Surely...

I'll be thinking about you (and your art supplies) and sending you good vibes!

I don't think the bees are out yet, JftB. But good of you to think of it, anyway. I guess something good came out of that M. Culkin movie after all!

Anyway, good luck, and have a good weekend! xoxoxo

Also, I did use the word "good" four times in that last post on purpose. Swear.

good luck with the little cheese and the bees this weekend. it's very good of you to take care of her while your bubs is at work and healing. I'm sure she she will have a good time at the park. The weather in c-bus looks good this weekend so it will be a good time to do something fun outdoors.
I used good 6 times!

Mmm I have mornings like that.....when I have to force myself up and about, but everytime I pass the bedroom door
, I know that if I just take that one step into the room I will all of a sudden find myself under the blankets and snug as a bug....for the rest of the day. Have a wonderful weekend!

Last night I needed to package up etsy goods that were in the bedroom. I had an exhausting day and found myself crawling into bed and under the covers for a few minutes. It felt so good but then my conscience called me out to do my work.

Please bring some sunshine with you when you come to NYC. We badly need it. :-)

You mentioned you lived in NYC before. When did you live here?

Oh, I didn't live in NYC I actually lived in NH but would often take the train into the city on a regular basis...

It has been far too long now since I have been.

Griffen Dunn, the guy that plays the teacher that Vayta is in love with, he used to be my parents neighbor. I saw him running down the street once and I was like, hey, that's the teacher from My Girl!! I love that phrase: Smarty Smarterson. I try to be smart. It's challenging, but I love knowledge. I can't wait to get back into crafting and drop back into blog world. Have fun with the MEAN CHEESE!

Ohhh wonderful work as usual!
Taking her to the park is a great idea! She should like that, although you probably know her better then I do. :)
Was that the FIRST time that you saw My Girl? I've seen that one about a billion trillion times. Yeah bees are scary, are you allergic to them too? I was only stung once by one. When I was bairfoot and steped on one when I was a kid. LOLOLOL Oopsy!
Anyhoo, wonderful work! :)
Your sooo kewl! I love visiting you blog to see what you have up next!
