Embracing my inner Martha Stewart
Now I will say it once and I will say it again, I really believe Martha Stewart is just better than the rest of us.
No seriously I do, I know she is probably is bitch and yes, she is an ex con....but I don't care. I wanted to hate her for years but lately, well I just can;t bring myself to do it anymore.
Does this mean I am getting older, more domestic...no, I don't think so, but it's hard to put my finger on it.
I find myself in the Martha Stewart section of Michael's and I am just in awe, jaw gaping open like a moron, speaking in breathy tones to my bubs.
me- look at this glitter...it's beautiful
bubs- looks like glitter
me- yeah but look at it, it looks like shaved piece of real gold
bubs- hmmmm (clearly he is not looking anymore but at least he has not walked away)
me- I'm going to buy this
bubs- you don't even use glitter
me- I know but don't you think I should???
and so on and so on.....I have even started to take my "lunch break" sometime during 11-12pm during the week so I can watch about 10-15 minutes of it, oh, the things I see.....
she made a mold to make a candle out of a gord, she made decorative holiday platters using paper plates, a candle stick, and glitter...YES, GLITTER!!!!!
My mind starts reeling, I can do that, can't I??
then the food, the big piles of food on the pretty plates...yes, yes, I want that, I want that life, I want to make the baked goods and have the place settings and the gift baskets, the dinner parties and the sewn things.
It all seems so easy, so divine.
But then I realize... that I am in a Martha Stewart hypnotic spell, that her dark powers are ahving her way with me, I am not one of those people, with the making of the home goods.
seriously, last night I was hungry and and keith was not, left to fend for myself, all I was capable of making was warmed up mash potatoes...that's it, not even a veggie in sight.
I guess baby steps, right??? I mean I did warm up the potatoes on my own, which was a success of the microwave.
(last time I used the microwave I burned popcorn and the house smelled like fire)
so there you have it, lots of babble this monday morning.
it was a rough rough weekend, so forgive the banality of it all, I needed to focus on something other than "real life" for a little while, so instead "Martha Stewart" life seemed better.
ps- My friend Maryam was nominated for a very prestigious blog award (best Middle Eastern or African Blog) so please if you all get a second, if you could go and vote for her here it would be wonderful!!!!!
