A Few Thoughts

This post is probably going to be pretty messy and unorganized...

That's what happens when I spend more than one day away from the computer. I'm surprised at how quickly I'm becoming attached to blogging and staying up to date with other blogs. Who would have thought!?!

So, I'm just going to dive on in.


First of all...thank all of you who commented on my last post!

I feel much better now that I have acknowledged those feelings. Just writing them down and seeing them in print helped.

Plus, it never hurts to get an "Aye, aye", if you know what I mean! Seriously, though, I'm going to try out your suggestions.


I spent the weekend finishing up stuff for my friend's wedding. The card box is done...and I was really happy with how it turned out. Took some pictures of it and I'll share once I get the pics off my camera!

She and her husband to be came over to my house yesterday and we made her favors. Chocolate covered pretzels, four HUNDRED of them, with red, orange and green striping. They turned out great, but my feet hurt. Four hours of standing on my kitchen floor, which is tile, did not help.

While we were dipping pretzels, my girlfriend kept saying, "You could do this for a living." Hmm...I don't know about that.

Then we ate Chinese for dinner. I LOVE fortune cookies, but I never seem to get a good one. My fortunes are always something stupid like, "Behind every able man, there are other able men." No kidding. But yesterday, my first cookie said:

"Your imagination will point you in a new direction. Go for it."
We laughed, and joked that maybe I should try my hand at my own crafty business. Then I opened another cookie and really laughed. Here's my second cookie's fortune:
"Listen these next few days to our friends to get answers you seek."

The wedding is Saturday, and we'll see if the card box and favors are a hit.


I only failed at one day of ICLW this month. Quite the improvement from last month!

My list for September 26th and 27th...

Baby Smiling In The Back Seat
Life after Infertility and Loss

  1. Sounds like a big weekend. And 400! No wonder your feet hurt!

    You could try opening an etsy store ( and see what comes of it.

  2. WOW ..400 that's a lofty undertaking. Congrats on finishing them

  3. I'm working on getting caught back up i the blogging world, but I wanted to thank you so, so much for your emotional support through my last few posts! It means the word to me to have such an amazing community standing behind me, waiting patiently with me as I work through all these untamed feelings.

    Your kindness overwhelms me. Thank you.

  4. 400? Yikes!

    Hope the wedding is wonderful! :)
