Feeling useless

Katie woke up today feeling yucky, and has been all day. And somehow her being sick makes me feel sick and I just want to go crawl in bed beside her, but I know if I don't take a moment to myself then I will go crazy in the next few days. I really want to do some scrapping tonight. My monthly kit club - MoshPosh - is adding to their design team, and I want to try to get an entry together. Have to peruse my pics and see what I want to work with. Since it is a kit club it makes supply selection easy... I am going to use the December kit, which one the girls aptly described as "Blingalicious". Definitely has shine power! Gotta get some cute Xmas pics printed out and get to work. And I have to make 1 card, which shouldn't be too hard. I already have an idea drawn up for it.

We finally got the Christmas tree and put it up yesterday. And Chip put some of the icicle lights up today, starting to feel a whole lot more like Christmas here. Katie was super excited about helping put up ornaments. She made us look after she hung each one. She was ADORABLE ... as always. My favorite, She surrounded an Elvis ornament with 6 little victorian doll ornaments because she said they like him ... I am sure they would!! How adorable is that?? She loves Elvis as any good Southern girl should. Now we just need to do some Christmas shopping ...

I wanna be a "blogger"

No, really I do... but I am just not comfortable with myself I guess. There are so many things that I think and feel every day that should never be shared. Kind of ashamed of myself for thinking most of them. And right now the actual events of my life are so boring that no one would even want to read them. Suffice it to say, work sucked, I didn't get enough sleep, and Katie did the most adorable thing today! Now, just repeat that daily.
I am in my 4th week of working full time and I hate it hate it hate it! I get home from work, spend about 30 minutes with Katie (getting breakfast and sugar check and shot), and then I crawl off to bed when Chip gets up. Then I get a whole 5 hours of sleep if I am lucky. Chip heads off for work and I am in charge. Katie really has been pretty good overall. She cuddles on the couch and doesn't make me play hide-n-seek to much. She is bound to do or say something adorable each day. How can she help it, she is cuteness personified. Today, I found a new little tiny birthmark above her right hip. So very kissable!
I am hoping that once this routine becomes more ... routine ... then I will be able to get back into doing some of the stuff I love. Playing in my room with paper and scissors. Or heck, just doing anything crafty. It is cold outside which always puts me int he mood to crochet or quilt. And I am falling behind on my scrapjournal - that has to be remedied! I would hate to slack off when the year is almost done. My LSS just posted that they are looking for people interested in teaching, so i thought I might actually take my scrapjournal idea up and see what they think about a class. I may not be able to totally commit myself every month, but that would be a one (or two) time deal. Hmmm, guess that means I might have to get off my procrastinating tushy, huh ;)

Nothing Accomplished ...

I can't believe it is almost December! I have done nothing that I set out to do this year. Well, almost nothing. i kept up (almost) with my scrapjournal. But I barely even submitted anything to get published ... as in maybe two things. I have taken tons of pictures, but still have to get them developed. I have bought even more scrap supplies, and not used nearly as much. I am eating a bit better, and losing a little weight, but mainly because of the new schedule. And also because of the new fulltime work we are inching closer to paying off debt. But I have only worked two full weeks, so I do mean inching closer. And my house ... my house is an even BIGGER PIGSTY than it was at the beginning of the year (once again, working fulltime now). I am hoping that once my body adjusts to working the graveyard shift five days a week that I will be able to get more accomplished. Right now, I feel like I was ridden REALLY hard and put up REALLY wet! One month left ... procrastinating is done ... time to actually make some of those resolutions a reality!

I wanna change my name!

I created 2sweetmom on a whim ... never thinking that years later it would still be part of my scrapping identity. I want something not so darn cutesy, something that has something to do with my name ... what could have more to do with my name than the first 3 letters of my first name and the first 4 letters of my last name. And I might add that I feel it is fitting that the last name is my married name, sometimes I feel a bit like I've been carjacked when stress starts beating me down. Not all of it because I am married ... but you know what I mean. And half the time I feel like I am in my car ... and I'm not really but that drive to Michael's seems longer every time. Maybe I should stop going ... it's not like I need anything else to add to my overflowing collection of scrap-related paraphenalia. I feel like a paper junky. Anyway, this is my new name ... at least for now, until I decide to change it again.
