Some days I just don’t accomplish very much. Today was one of those days. It seems like I’ve had a string of “those kind of days,” and honestly, wish I had less. I didn’t sleep well, and I’m not really sure why, but decided at about 4AM, that I needed to do some laundry. I know you should just lay there, and eventually you’ll fall asleep, but somehow, that doesn’t work for me. I’m more of a, lay there until I get up and either make a list of the things I need to do, or get up and accomplish something kind of girl. So this morning, I did laundry. Just one load, but it made me feel like I could check something off of my invisible list of things to do, so I could go to sleep. I probably would have laid there awake for a couple more hours if I hadn’t.
I slept late and then decided to put my closet back together, then, because I completely forgot about the closet, sent some emails and took Rich out to dinner and ran a few errands.
I did get a really nice surprise in the mail from Rebecca, the owner of Rubber Stamp Tapestry, the peg stamp people. She sent me their new stamp sets that are almost all focused on succulents and cacti. (I wanted to make sure that the plural of cactus was cacti, and it is.) Whew, a load off my mind….It’s not like I’m a stickler for vocabulary, but I don’t want to appear illiterate if I can avoid it. But in doing my research, apparently cactus is also acceptable as the plural of cactus, who knew? These are the things I learn from doing this blog.
Back to the peg stamps story….She also sent their new fall based stamp sets and one set with some gorgeous florals. I’m a sucker for their flower stamps and must have at least fifty of them. So tomorrow I’m going to put my closet together and then focus on making some cards. I have several that I need to make for friends and family, and some that I just want to play with some new techniques. All in all, I have a lot of card making and video making that I need to do, and I’m going to staple myself inside my craft room until I accomplish something. Ok, I might not staple myself inside, but I am definitely going to make some videos tomorrow. I feel really guilty, because I just keep procrastinating and I think it’s because I just don’t want to organize the closet. It seems like an overwhelming task and I need to force myself to do it. You’d think I would be really excited and would jump right on this, but for some reason I keep putting it off. I’m really not sure why. No more excuses, tomorrow is the day, that closet is getting done. Period. Or I’ll find another excuse and postpone it again.
