Tuesday, October 02, 2007's still dark out

good morning...

oh and by good morning I mean...what the hell am I doing up so damn early????

so as I type away I am being greeted by the morning sky, still dark as night. This is no good. I am no morning person. So, when awakened at 5:27am by my allergies, I knew the day was off to a crap of a start.

I tossed and turned, sniffled and moaned...then started to loudly complain to my poor bubs who was trying to relaxy before getting up for work...poor guy, he heard a lot of this.

"ugh...........(sniffle, sniffle) it's awful"
"THIS IS NOT NORMAL (cough, cough)"
"It's way too early to get up, it's still night (sneeze, sneeze)"

I realize now that I should not have been such the drama queen, as my dear bubs gets up at that time everyday, that it is not in fact "still night" but the beginning of his day.

Working at home has made me spoiled, and a bit bratty I fear, well....more spoiled and more bratty that I used to be.

So..........that has been my day, 7:00am and I have already listed 3 reserved pieces on etsy, and worked a bit on a new collage.

At this rate I will be ready for bed by 9:00am...le sigh.

Though, no bed for me, as I actually have plans tonight, I am hanging out with another woman, my friend Debbie....I know, me having girl time. Crazy as I am usually trapped with a bunch of boys.

You see Debbie called last night to see if I wanted to go to a fashion show with her hosted by Clinton Kelly from What not To Wear, it should be fun...sure we're not talking Couture here, but still, fashion is fashion.

Though, my inner fear is that he will be heckling people in the crowd for their choice of ensembles...And this city there are more people that are poorly dressed that well dressed.

So what are you all up to today???

The pictures I am showing today are of the one available card set left in my shop (which is my favorite so far I think) as well as a new 4 piece collage.

Oh, and before I forget....I should thank you all, again (I do that a lot), for the support as I deal with the darker side of etsy...(the stalker). Thank you all for the emails and the support, it is because of that very fact that I end up smiling at the end of the day, because when all is said and done, someone might try and take what I do and what I am, but they can't take all of you, all of "this".

so, thanks from the very bottom of my (not dead) heart.

I love you all.


PS- did you all here that Brit Brit got her kids taken away finally????? I am tempted to write to her tomorrow for celeb letter, but I am not sure, I am sort of holding it all in...

That four-piecer is just gorgeous!

I wasn't able to keep up with the blogworld as much as I like in September, so I don't know much about what's going on with you @ Etsy -- the dark side you mentioned, but I hope that the situation gets resolved super soon and send you good thoughts.

Ooh, and I get up at 5 a.m. almost everyday -- there are benefits to it (like you feel like you've accomplished loads before breakfast) and downsides (anything you wanted to watch on television that comes on in primetime -- you'll probably fall asleep before the first commercial break).

Take care and have fun on your girls night!

We love you too, dearie-doodle!

I read about Brit losing her kids. I mean... I know that must be hard on her but I don't think she has a Mothering bone in her body. But what about K-Fed? Those boys just need to be adopted out to someone who knows what to do with them. THEY are who I feel sorry for!

What a fun girls night it sounds like you have planned! Go and enjoy, even if the fashion is bad.

I talked to a 1-800 guy on the phone yesterday who was from Columbus, OH. I squealed and said, "A good friend of mine lives in Columbus!!!" He seemed less than impressed. Oh well.

Yeah, up at 5:30am. No sun. Welcome to my world. Granted, come 5:30, I've been up all night, but that's not the point. :)

Instead of writing to Brit tomorrow, I think you should write to Kevin. Give him some child care tips or something.

I hate it when it's dark in the morning. I often leave the house at 5:45AM, and there are a few month in there where the sun is fully out at that hour, and it's not so bad. Getting up in darkness, especially if it's allergy related (that happens to me too, the damn cat loves my pillows) well, it sucks.

You should definitely write a letter to brit-brit tomorrow. I'd like to hear what you have to say, and I'm sure she would too!
I can't believe you got up so early. LAME! Sleeping in is the only way to rock it.

And I love the new card sets. Very delicate and lovely.

Fashion Show!!!!!! Woohoo, fashion *is* fashion. oooh, I kind of have a crush on him. I know, he's not that into me or probably anyone similar to me. I love the idea of you giving kfed parenting tips tomorrow. So far I have only seen the nanny with the kids. poor kids. I hope when we are 60 we are both sharing a whiskey together in person and flipping over some mag showing them all grown up. I think I know your stalker, sorry, I accidentally clicked on a piece on the front page thinking it was yours. I was fooled, until I got to the bigger version that is. beyotch.
