It's Friday!

I actually don't like Fridays because I have to catch up on house work all week end while Mike changes diapers all day.   But tomorrow we are actually going to finagle a date night!  Yay! First one in I don't know how long!

I made a treasury over at etsy, if you'd like to check it out.  

Molly wanted a beard beanie.  I let her pick out the yarn, and it turned out really great.  As soon as she isn't sick anymore and doesn't look hung over, I'll take a picture of her in it. I'm thinking about putting it on etsy.  Pictures to come, I guess.  XD  (Teehee!)

I Should Really Be Sleeping

I was thinking about writing a blog about Whitney Houston as that greatest love of all has been stuck in my head, and I was going to talk about the hypocrisy of pop stars, especially ones that don't write their own music and the hypocrisy of the culture in general.  And then, and then, I didn't feel like, because it doesn't matter. Nobody is perfect.  

But I learned a new emoticon today and I had to share it.


I LOVE IT!!!!!

I wish to triumph over evil.  I wish to put away childish desires.  I wish to live and let live.  I wish to have victory over the weaker side of my nature.  I wish to show mercy to those who have also stumbled in their journey.  I wish to find forgiveness for the things that I am unable to forgive.  I wish for strength.  

My god once told me that whatever answers I seek I can find inside myself.  I must continue my search, I suppose. Because there are things I still don't understand.

Jump Rope For Heart

I vaguely remember something from my childhood about the whole Jumping Rope thing in the 1980s, but I don't know if I remember actually taking part in it.  Now it's Molly's turn and I am going to try my damnedest to teach her about community and those less fortunate than us and giving and how easy it is to give.  Because I have realized in my quest for adulthood that when we give we don't really lose anything.   Who's with me?

Why I Hate The Doors

Please remember when reading this that I am hardly a qualified music critic and I also haven't seen that movie, The Doors, since I was a teenager.  I may in fact not have any idea about anything.

My husband was watching a documentary on Netflix about The Doors and I made a catty comment about setting my girlfriend on fire.  Mike said that I shouldn't judge the band solely on that movie because it wasn't necessarily all factual.  So, I had to think for a minute about why I hate The Doors.

It's that they have this gimmick, this tortured artist, oh-I'm-so-weird-and-mysterious thing going on, but the music doesn't stand on it's own without the gimmick.  It's just not that good and the gimmick is bullshit.  At the tender age of thirteen (or however old I was at the time, I'm too lazy to look it up) I watched Meg Ryan walk out of a burning closet and I understood all of that somehow. It doesn't really matter to me if Jim Morrison set his girlfriend on fire or not. This scene symbolizes the idea that embodies The Doors in my mind. That idea is that everything that is good must be sacrificed for something that is, at best, mediocre.

I Love February!

I love February because of the sinus headaches!  And unseasonably warm Februaries are the best. To make it all better, the baby is either having sinus headaches as well, or he's hit some developmental milestone where he has figured out that he can always sleep later. These two wonderful aspects of my life culminated Sunday night, Monday morning with me weeping and sobbing uncontrollably over my screaming boy.  Mike came to the rescue though, and things are better now.  I think the crying actually helped clear some stuff out.  But I slept with that boy on my chest again last night which is not really fun.  (Shakes fist violently at sky.)

Still plugging away!

More gift sets that I need to get up this afternoon.  (Should I wake him up from his nap?)

A Few Products Going Up Over At Etsy

Here's what I've been working on lately.

Cotton Face Scrubbies-Because I just want to make face scrubbies like everyone else!

More soap and washcloth gift sets. 
A baby hat that by the time I got it made it didn't fit Linus anymore so I had no model!
 I wanted to do something fun for Valentine's Day but I didn't get to it.  So I'll try and get on that for next year.  ;)
