Sleep! Who needs it....ME!

I can't sleep.

It is not a good idea to start a novel right before going to bed. Especially not one as good as "Can You Keep a Secret" by Sophie Kinsella. It is a trap I tell you! In error I thought that reading would help me go to sleep. It doesn't usually work but I was already tired at 10:30 tonight so I thought, a few minutes with a good book won't hurt...3 hours and 300 pages later, I a FORCED to stop. CW has a head ache and the light is keeping him awake. The nerve.

I lay in bed for an hour after turning off the light with a fabulous idea turning around in my brain. I just had to get up.

It's 5 till 5 and I have to be up in an hour because Alex has chess club at 7am, which means he cannot ride the bus and that I should get him up at 6 instead of 6:25.

Busy day tomorrow...see you all then!

Blogging Fever -- Sassy Apron Swap!

I know you've seen more of me in the last 2 days than in the last 2 months. What can I say??? I have a fever...blogging fever...heehee. Ok so maybe I do have a real fever but at least it's been entertaining.

I have decided to participate in a swap. You can still send your info in to be included in the swap but only till tomorrow January 20. The project it due March 1st.

I am so excited. I have been needing a project where I could use my new machine. I guess we will see how it goes.

My true color....

Take this test!
You're brown, a credible, stable color that's reminiscent of fine wood, rich leather, and wistful melancholy. Most likely, you're a logical, practical person ruled more by your head than your heart. With your inquisitive mind and insatiable curiosity, you're probably a great problem solver. And you always gather all of the facts before coming to a timely, informed decision. Easily intrigued, you're constantly finding new ways to challenge your mind, whether it's by reading the newspaper, playing a trivia game, or composing a piece of music. Brown is an impartial, neutral color, which means you tend to see the difference between fact and opinion easily and are open to many points of view. Trustworthy and steady, you really are a brown at heart.

11 things I love about my husband (One for each year)

11. He always listens without interupting (I can't say the same for myself).

10. He takes me places he knows I like even if he doesn't really care about them. Trust me when I say we are forever going to museums/festivals/exhibits, because I like them and he just likes me.

9. He really likes me and he tells me so. Who doesn't need to hear that.

8. He recongnizes when I am feeling overwhelmed and tries to remedy the situation without making a big deal about it.

7. He's kooky, funny, entertaining and a great storyteller.

6. He is the realist to my idealist and it's a good thing too or we would be living in my good intentions instead of our beautiful home.

5. He always believes in my talents, even when I have forgotten them.

4. He really smart and very talented, good at his job, and a great provider.

3. He's an introvert, he's always felt like an outsider in his own family of artists, performers and musicians but it's made him very unique.

2. He is a great dad. He knows things about the kids that I don't and can't understand. He tries hard to be a good parent, not just to talk to them but listen to what they say.

1. He is my partner. He bring balance and stability to my life that had always been lacking.

Happy Anniversary, babe! Your the best!
I am so ashamed.

Here I am visiting all of these simply fab blogs while mine own is so neglected.

I do have an excuse for this last week though. Up until today I have simply been feeling wretched. I have been keeping the companies that make nyquil and theraflu in business.

Other than christmas was wonderful, my birthday fun, fun and more fun and my anniversary very romantic. I have practically every special day of my life within a month. I didn't plan very well although only one of those is actually my fault. :)

Richard Simmons on "Whose Line is it Anyway?"

Alright, so I'm posting a link to this video because laughter is a good thing. There aren't many times where the skit is so funny that the entire audience is almost in tears. I showed the video to my roommate and made the comment that Colin Mochrie really makes it funny. Of course Richard Simmons is a good sport making light of his "implied" orientation, but Colin really takes it to another level. Why is he so funny?

...and so it begins!

I've been toying with the idea of creating a blog for a few weeks now. For some reason I thought that throwing some of my observations into the world of cyberspace might be a good exercise for me. We'll see how this goes. If nothing else this may be a chronicle of my path to insanity. Join me on my journey will you?
