subtitled: my dalliances with crack.
I slept way more than usual on Sunday. Apparently, I stored up some extra energy that needed to be expelled. Today.
Ian had truck problems yesterday, and he asked me to take him to work this morning. At 6:30. Whew. I'm not a big fan of the 6:30. When I got home I laid in bed and scrolled through Pinterest until my left hand fell asleep. I got up, showered and went to Sam's Club. $300 later, I came home, put everything away, started on the laundry and made some egg salad. I had some lunch, made a little decoration for my cell phone case and then did my taxes. When it came time to print my copies I decided the time had come to hook up my new wireless laser printer. [Can I just tell you? I don't know why I waited so long! We print a ton of stuff for school, most of it black and white, and yet I'm shelling out tons of money on color ink cartridges. What a racket that is! So long, Epson, I'll hit you up when I need color prints, till then pfffft!] More laundry, more printer installation (the kid's computer), more food prep, more laundry, dinner, took Ted to his speed and agility workout, helped Molly with her homework, goofed off, picked Ted up, stopped at Dairy Queen for buy-one-get-one-for-99¢ Blizzards, came home and...PLAYED.
While I was poking around on Pinterest this morning I started searching for Silhouette boards to follow. There were a bunch of tutorials for using the trace tool. I know how to use it, I just haven't ever felt the urge to. But it got me thinking: what am I missing? What amazing things are there that I'm not tracing?? I decided to type "png" into the google machine and click on the images tab. Lots of stuff came up but nothing that really screamed "TRACE ME!" Well, not until I got to the android dude. He screamed "TRACE ME! LOVE ME!" because he is, indeed, perfectly traceable and perfectly lovable. And you know what? He'd make a cool "call me" card. So I made a little speech bubble and voilà:
I'll send it to Maggie. Of course "kids these days" don't bother checking their mailboxes, so she'll get it sometime in May. :P
I'm starting to feel it though. I think it's time to veg out to a little Watch What Happens Live and then head to bed. Thanks for stopping by!
