Because I’m slightly tipsy and have some catching up to do – bullets!
Photos: I’ve been putting stuff up on my photo blog again lately. I’m having so much fun with my camera, and I’m really learning a lot. This is one of my favorites lately. But then I really like this one too. This one reminds me of Tonka toys. And this one was just plain fun. I have big plans to do more with my photos, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, I’ll still be posting them here and there. And everywhere.
It’s a Girl Thing: If you follow me on Twitter you know I’ve been working on building a Girl Cave. It’s done and it’s AWESOME. What is a girl cave? Well mainly it’s a space all my own for the first time in a really long time. Something as awesome as a Girl Cave deserves it’s own post, so I’ll just give you a sneak peakIs that not THE most rad girly chair ever? I love that chair.
Grandson: Most everyone knows by now that I have a grandson. If you didn’t, hey guess what? I have a grandson! He is…well, he’s the kind of awesome that is beyond words, which is why I haven’t written about his arrival. I find that I’m still not ready to write about it, and I don’t really know why, but it probably has to do with the same reasons I didn’t tell very many people about it beforehand. It’s personal. It’s private. It seems like something I want to keep very close to my heart for right now. I know there were hurt feelings because I didn’t share with, well, hardly anyone, and I’m sorry for that. The hurt feelings part, I mean, because that’s never my intent. The not sharing part was my choice, though. Sometime soon I’ll be ready to share and everyone will be all shut up already!
TeeVee: We canceled cable over six months ago in a fit of “this shit is too expensive” and honestly, I don’t miss it all that much. I can get my fix on Netflix and Hulu. My husband, however, does miss it. He gave it a good six months, but he’s over it. Since we live in the back of beyond, not to mention in a bowl surrounded by mountains, we don’t get much in the way of “antenna” service on the digital tuner. We took advantage of Memorial Day sales last weekend and bought the World’s Comfiest Couch, so it kind of seems like a moral obligation to have cable TV at that point. After DirecTV made me insane with their bait and switch, stick me on permahold and tell me to “trust them” bullshit I decided to go with Dish Network because it worked ok for us before. Monday morning between 8:00 and noon I will be back among the monthly cable bill paying peoples of the world, still with mixed feelings about the whole thing.
Have a great weekend everyone! Mine is going to include a LOT of margaritas, a metric fuckton of homemade (for the first time in my house) hummus, and artichokes as big as my head. Oh and there will be baby head sniffing. Oh yes, there will.
