Monday schmunday

Today was craptastic. For lots of reasons. There is no other word for it. I stayed up until 1:30 and Monkey Pants woke up at the butt crack of dawn. That is not a good way to start the day. She is on cold #2 for the season and is a crusty little thing. Then throughout the day I dealt with a big crap bag of things that made me want to put on my sweatpants and curl up in bed forever. I’m not going to go in to it, but it stunk.

However there are good things to talk about and be thankful for. I stayed up late but that means that I got a ton of editing done and now I feel like I am actually almost on top of things. That feels nice. Marlie was crusty but also snuggly all day. That’s the only plus of a sick kiddo, the snuggles. And the name collage business is picking up for the Christmas season so that is encouraging. This is the first year that I have Beth helping me and boy is that something to be thankful for. If I didn’t have her help I would have had 5 breakdowns by now instead of 1 or 2. You’re the bomb diggity BB and you know it.

Speaking of name collages just a note to all my Kirkwoodian customers. Some of you have faithfully purchased signs at Moonbeams in downtown Kirkwood. I just wanted to let you peeps know that they aren’t there anymore. There are some collages there for sale that look very much like them so it would be easy to mistake them for mine, but they aren't. However, you can purchase them here on my website or at The Painted Zebra. They make a great Christmas gift. Especially the new color ones. I am so happy with they way the look!

Another thing to be thankful for is the smell I am smellin right now. I am enjoying the last few hours of this candle.

And I better take it all in because it has been discontinued. It is the best smelling candle I ever sniffed so I have no idea why they stopped making it but continue making those stinky fruity scents. I have googled it and froogled it and schmoogled it and cannot find one measly cardamom candle left in this world. Sadness. If anyone can find one for me I’ll marry you. Or at least reimburse you for it.

Alright its late and its been a long one. Peace out Monday. You can kick me but you can’t keep me down.

you're hilarious. I'm glad your monday was craptastic too. Well, I guess mine wasn't that bad, but I was home all day with a sickie hubby and taking care of 2 girls ( you only have 1!) j/k. It's sometimes just hard when you're inside all day. I cleaned, did laundry, cleaned the kitchen 4 times, read books, nursed, made a pot roast, comet cleaned a shower, organized a basement, got the mail, went through the mail, did finances, worked on a photo book in snapfish, changed diapers, and.....ate some icecream cake.
ok. sorry I just told you all of that, but it was justarollin off my tongue. anyway, just wanted to let you know that I kinda sympathize with your craptastic Monday.
ps. your blog is my fav!...maybe b/c I can relate with the artist/mom/goofnut in you :)
