david, being the generous young man he is, "volunteered' to hook up my parents' new tv today. I went with him against my impulses to stay home and pull blankets over my head. I dragged hannah along too, for good measure. they live about 30 minutes away. unless it's raining which of course it was. chris (aka: the lucky-one) had to go to work so he couldn't accompany us in our television journey. after david got it all set up and I was subjected to the ever popular tour of the house (this is where I keep all the bank info, here is the will the gold and diamonds etc....) we escaped. I asked david "so, how long til we get a phone call letting us know there is something wrong with the tv"? david's guess? sometime tonight. oh goody. at least the kids got weinerschnitzel out of the adventure.

Tuesday December 29th 2009

today was clean the studio day. not the metal desk. or the glass area. just the area where I sit and veg and feel guilty about the things I should be making. the obvious question is: how does it get so dirty/messy/disorganized when I never seem to actually do anything in there?

3 days after Christmas. the only people at the mall are the ones with returns or gift cards/money burning a hole in their pocket. only idiots go "just because". and yet. hannah talked me into taking her and the sar-bear (sara) to the mall. and not the one 5 minutes from the house where I could just do the drop off, buh-bye. no. they had to go to the mall that is just far enough away that I didn't want to have to come back and pick em up. so I stayed. why oh why did I stay? I had to beg them to leave after 3+ hours. I am freakin' tired. and I had no play money. and didn't want anything if I did. that is a long time to be at the mall. tomorrow I do something for me!

December 27th 2009

okay...I have started the morning with Kona Blend coffee and a tiny (?) slice of apple pie. Now to make a decision - play with silver, get the torch going and make some beads or go to the movies? Hmmmm. I should go to the movies just to get my butt out of this house. But, IDK. David is watching football. Hannah is going to her friend Kayla's house. Chris went golfing. So really I can do whatever I want. I'm just not sure I know what that is anymore!

December 26th 2009

Okay, I'm gonna try this again. I think the problem is, is that most days I have nothing of importance to talk about. And, the idea that I'm talking to myself is a little freaky. From the looks of all the followers I have (NOT) I definitely am talking to myself. Oh Christmas is over. It's always kind of a relief, isn't it? I'm not sure why. It was worse when the kids were small. I was so worried I'd mess it all up for them. I didn't grow up with Christmas so the first few years were super exciting for me. The decorating, cookie making, shopping and wrapping. All big fun for Stacey. That lasted about 10 years. It's just soooo much work. Next is New Years, my personal LEAST fav "holiday". So I have about 6 more days of "celebration" and then life returns to the quiet that I love so much. I live for lazy days of torch time and playing with metals and ordering pizza. Bring it on!
