Watch this space...

I promise you that I've not given up on blogging and abandoned all my goals of growing creatively already! However, there is just a bunch of stuff that has hit the fan all at once around here....

My parents came into town, which was a lovely, lovely surprise, but a surprise nonetheless. More details about their visit may follow. The short version: it was a really good visit.

On the less-than-pleasant surprise front: I'm dealing with some really soul-searching issues at work, and find myself on the horns of a dilemma. I am not finding the situation all that interesting, therefore I am sure that no one else will, so I'll spare you as much as possible. Hopefully, things will resolve soon - and I'll quit fretting.
And sleeping fitfully, with terrible stress-filled dreams.
And randomly bursting into tears. (which I never, never, ever do....)

On a much happier note - my favorite mail carrier* just came and rang the bell and hand delivered this! This should provide a pleasant distraction from fretting....



*I know it sounds strange to have a favorite mail man, but I do. We have a rotating cast of letter carriers, that seem to switch out with little rhyme or reason (except we do have the same guy on Tuesdays, and I only know that because the Tuesday guy is creepy.) This guy is my favorite. He's kind of grandfatherly, and always wishes for me to have a blessed day. This usually bugs me when people say this (and in the South, it is not a rare occurrence) but when he says it, it's kind of sweet.

I get that "have a blessed day" thing every time I stop for gas in Augusta. Strange.

Santa left this book for me. I haven't made any of the official "stupid sock creatures" yet because I'm not that good at following directions. I always add a little Laurie spice and it comes out looking completely different. But the ones I've made have been super fast and super funny.
