"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

That great sucking sound you hear is the sound of any control over my schedule going down the drain. Maybe that isn't quite true but that is how it feels. All of a sudden I have so much on my plate and I'm wondering where I'm going to find the time for all of it. Somehow I have to find time for homeschooling, a huge craft project (commitment not just because I want to...well, I want to but there is a deadline), potty training Gabe (he's still fighting it tooth and nail), my cross stitch design blog needs updating, *something new and exciting for me coming down the pike but it also requires time, housework (BLECH), and all the projects I would like to do. Calgon, take me away! Ah well, at least these are mostly all good things making demands on my time.

And, now I must go finish making Gabe's Volcano Man costume. Halloween is disturbingly close.
Finally, just in case you need a laugh, check these sites out...

  1. Pets Who Want To Kill Themselves
  2. Pets As Art Mediums (or you can google poodle sculpting or look at poodles as art mediums)
  3. Accidental Dong (it is oh so wrong but OMG hysterical)

Hopefully, it will be official soon and then I can tell y'all

You do so many good things girl I swear! The last site is indeed so wrong, but damn so funny! Be sure to post pic of costume tomorrow.

Hey, I got my awesome wonderful hat! And it fits my ginormous head, which is a MIRACLE. You are super awesome, especially considering how busy you are. I'm going to post about this tomorrow. Meanwhile, I have to figure out how to make a tiny pirate costume for Oscar, lol.

I so, SO know where you're coming from... I've been so busy lately that, without realizing it, I now know how to hold my bladder for an insane amount of time. How is it okay that I'm so busy I've retrained my bladder? I am not a puppy.

Good luck with the schedule stuff. It all sounds hugely overwhelming. Loved the web sites. The Dong one was seriously funny.

What eff are those dog sculptors thinking? Seriously. Poor dogs. And yes, accidental dongs is so wrong and sooo hilarious.
I hope your good thing comes through.

THIS is why I say that you get more done than anyone else...forget a clean house, these are the important things.
