Holy Moly!

Killing time by blog hopping and found one of my cards here under Jimmi's Favorite Things Sunday. It really suprised me because she makes such amazing things and to pick one of mine blew me away!

Ahhh... the procrastination has already hit!

I discovered the other day that I have not updated any photo albums in at least two years- Bad mom! I've been trying to update them until today when an ink cartridge exploded on me and then that particular color quit working altogether. And I'm still not close to being done. Grrr.
This was after I made two trips to Office Max for new cartridges, so now I have plenty of cartridges and a printer that isn't working right. Double grrr. I think I'll go do homework.

New Semester, Less Light Reading

The new semester starts next week, which means that I'm going to have a lot less easy reading time on my hands. I found a passage in a library book that kind of sums up my frame of mind right now...

"It comes from love, this desire to pursue advanced degrees in something pretty much the whole world will never see as valid or useful! I tcomes from love, and in return they give you narrative theory! Love turns to semantics! It's the tragedy of higher education!" ~Megan Crane in English as a Second Language

On the other hand, in response "'re pissed out of your mind and talking shit. Please reign in the philosophizing and tend to your pint." Also MC in EAASL.

For everyone starting a new semester, have a good one and may your time spent trying to figure out what you want to be when you grow up be more productive than mine!

Getting started...

Finally getting with the programs... I had a roommate once with a theory that all of us are allotted so many words per day- some of us were clearly not allotted as many as others, so we will see how much I really have to post here.

Right now, I'm trying to update the kids' photo albums. Out of all of the crafty things I like to do, scrapbooking has never been one of them. I haven't actually done this in at least three years, so I am very far behind. I see a trip for more photo paper and ink in our near future! Note to self- don't get this far behind again!
