lack of sleep

so i love to sleep but lately i havent been getting enough sleep...and i say things like "you can use the stamp to put paint on the sponge" instead of "you can use the sponge to put paint on the stamp" and "be sure to wash your paint in the water and dab it on the paper towel" instead of "be sure to dab your paint brush on the paper towel when you wash it in the water"
but i am excited to sleep in on friday!! ginny is going to work for me for a few hours 9-12!! :) and i am going to get some paper work notarized to try to get our friend cristina to come here from romania!!

what do i get my husband for his birthday??

well i bought him a magic dvd a few weeks ago that he really wanted...but what i really want to get him is a new mac...his is sort of a dinosaur i guess...why is it that computers age super fast?? so i tried to be all smooth and ask him what kind of computer our friend Jon got recently...but that set david off and he had some idea of what i was i broke down and asked him what one he would want and once we come into a little money (my real job hasnt paid me in a few weeks) we are going to order up a new APPLE. i guess the saying of better late then never applies to my husbands birthday this year!!

busy busy

so i am now open 9-9! i should have plenty of time to update my blog but when i dont have customers the thought of doing anything other then reading (after i clean up the mess) is far away....i have been steady but today was slower then monday and tuesday. i have two ladies who are going to work for me so i can go to the beach and i am very excited about that. one already works on sunday and the other is going to come by and fill in a few hours twice a week. my plan to continue eating healthy hasnt gotten back yet it is hard to go to the grocery store when i am at art & soul 9-9...i am not a morning person so i get up right before i have to get to art & soul. but i am going to order an electric skillet and one of my customers is bringing me a microwave and a george foreman soon i will be able to cook pretty much anything here...the only other thing i might get is a crockpot but i havent ever cooked in one...i love mary's and my mom's stuff they cook in the crockpot so maybe i will look for some recipes. other then working and reading i have painted a few pieces and they are waiting to fire.

so you may or may not know this but i really enjoy to husband thinks i am wasting my time and should write a book instead of reading so many. i consider reading a hobby i have and it is just enjoyable to dive into a good book. he on the other hand dances like a monkey for enjoyment. so all of this to say i have read 26 books since Jan 06 and i am looking for any recommendations. i like to read chick lit - as amanda puts it. but i am willing to branch out if i can find it at the local library. oh and i like james patterson too. so friends if you read or dont read but have heard of a good author clue me in. thanks!!
