Why can't Comcast work with my schedule?

I'm on Bill's lappy.

Why haven't I blogged? Well, besides the general lack of anything unique in my life to report, my internet is down. Down dooby-do down down. Has been for some time. And those cable guys can only come out during work hours. Boo.

I don't get on Bill's lappy to blog because then he sits next to me and makes comments when I do like: "DON'T blog about how you got nothing to blog! Just don't blog if you don't have anything to say!!!" At which point I shoot him a look, and quote him. Which may or may not be entertaining.

I sat down to make a card the other day, and it feels like papercrafting has gone totally stale for me. Who knows? Maybe the holidays will bring it back. Baking, however, is still a whole other story. Last week it was french bread and the first attempt to make copy cat "Krumballs" which is cake rolled up in a ball and dipped in chocolate like a truffle. Yes, they are so good. Yes, they such a pain to make.

Knitting also, is a fun sport. But the event in which I excel this season is sleeping. I'm super good at going to bed early and struggling to drag myself out in the mornings.

And now the newsworthy part: Emma is two chapters away from finishing her first Magic Treehouse book, which are her first chapter books. I am so excited about this! So is she, which is really, really cool.

So glad that fall and the holidays have arrived! It's my favorite time of year.

pfft bill. take his laptop and lock yourself in the bathroom to blog.
and i agree, scrapping has gone totally stale for me right now too, whereas sewing and cooking are exciting and awesome.

No, DO blog - even if you have nothing to say. . . it means SOMETHING to me, honest. Lovely to hear from you again. Autumn? What's that like again? Marcie and her Mom are due in a WEEK!! Yay. Can you come, can you come??

Holy Moly, I can NOT believe Comcast left a comment! Is that a joke? Or is Mark secretly your brother-in-law?

I miss your children. I miss scrapping with you. I would make sure you were inspired, because I'd make you drive me to a scrap store. I even miss Bill pretending to be an iTunes DJ. The whole one time that it happened...
