I’m a procrastinator, a sewist, a dabbler, a reader, a baker, an over planner, a mama to many furry kids and I regularly play with fire.

Reset two whole rows of parts (a little over 1000 items) ... whew!
PSA: If you are off work today don't send a 'don't work too hard' text to someone that is .. it makes them stabbity
Hi ho hi ho ... Off to work and feeling irked that I'm the only person there that has to (also trying to remind myself to be happy I have a job). Whatchu up to today?
we're just off for a walk to the shop. Blow away some cobwebs. - Marina's Godmother :-)
I'm about to go to bed, but I ate, played with my Christmas presents (ie put them all away and set up my new desk things), and napped :oD Hoping to put my Skin Kandy voucher to good use in the morning if Josh is feeling up to watching the kids. - Melly Claus #anticaper
Still working on (quickly) getting over this cold. (What might have been vacation days off due to being sick just happened to fall on company holidays.) Trying to decide whether or not I can be well enough to have dinner with friends. - Julian
I might be eating a cookie for dinner since everything else requires cooking.
Still at work, alone, counting all the things. Little, little things

Oh my. Uh... maybe count with a 'one thingy dingy, two thingy dingy' with the nasally voice? That might at least make you giggle some. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
^this! - Corinne L
Edith Anne, Edith Ann! - SAM
Have arrived at the almost end of the blue boxes (two stacks left - fuses and dowels - but they will wait). Started at 8am - whew! Payroll is done. All that's left is to balance what I counted in the computer and then "Outta here!" And that's the truth, pffffft! :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I suppose a pity party on Christmas Eve is bad form, huh?
Not at all! I'll play. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
We could call it a late Festivus airing of grievances instead. - Corinne L
Inventory ...weeeeeee!
AC died on my truck. Ah well, at least it's not July.
battery life or motor? - obe
Dunno yet. I had a collision with a renegade paint can today on the interstate. I suspect damage from that but haven't been under it yet. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Staying late at work again. Bust out the Christmas music or the Chair Boogie music?
Chair boogie, of course! - Tamara J. B.

Ocular migraine #2 just started ... argh!
Weird! I've had one in my left eye for 5 days now. - Yolanda from Android
Mine last about 30 minutes, but I rarely have two in a day. It really needs to mosey on ... I've got thing to do where being able to see would be mighty helpful :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
yuck! The one time I had one of those was immediately before seeing the eye doc, and he said Excedrin Extra Strength (with caffeine) should stop it in its tracks if you take it at first pinprick. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I found the experience very disorienting and scary! I hope yours pass quickly. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Dear ocular migraine, while I do appreciate that you don't hurt, I really need to see right now!!
Watching Cat Ballou. Wishing I could watch the Dutchess and the Dirtwater Fox next :-)
Step mom went out for some last minute shopping so I hauled over to their house and snapped a few more photos oh the pup. Much better this time, but this dog will not look at the camera, grr. I'd have liked one good head on shot. Ah well. Here goes, pick three please.

2, 3, 5 - Pete
3 and 5 have the most character, i think. - Big Joe Silence
3 is my fave. <3 - The First NoeLB from Android
Lounging puppy in the first and third are priceless! I like the last two also. - Heather
2, 4, 5 :-) - Marina's Godmother :-)
2, 3 and 4 - Jenny
3 and 5. - Corinne L
3! - Katy S
#3, fitness pup doing sit-ups. :D - April Russo
4 and 5 ears up alert - WarLord
Gosh darn dog alarm! Ah well, I guess I'll clean something and get a jump on this day. Good morning!
I snuck outside with my step-mom's dog today and tried to take her photo as a xmas gift. Every time I plopped down in the grass with her she'd try to get in my lap resulting plenty of odd shots. The frame I have has 3 parts. I think if I'd gotten one 'face on' photo I could used what I have but I'm not sure these work. What do you think?

I love the third one, very sweet. - Heather
I think they're lovely and show her personality. Especially as a triptych. I say do it. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
What T-ra said. - Corinne L
When I first got Daisy, I had trouble getting a body shot of her. Every time she saw me looking at her, she came and sat down in front of me. https://www.flickr.com/photos... I finally got a shot by pretending to run up the stairs. She ran ahead of me, and when she saw I had stopped, she stopped and turned and I clicked the shutter. https://www.flickr.com/photos... (Later, I was able to get good body shots.) - bentley
T-ra speaks truth. - The First NoeLB from Android
Have bypassed Cranky Pants and gone straight to Bithy Britches. You've been warned.
Liking for the term, not the mood. - The First NoeLB from Android
Unexpected 1K car repair ... so. damn. tired. of the mini cooper.
Same. Ours is $600 that we shouldn't even have to pay. I'm pretty sure we've paid more this year on the MINI than it's actually worth. - Anika
Us too. The monthly expense is verging on a car payment, not that we can afford to do that either. HoHoHo - Shannon - GlassMistress
Photograph of Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner popped up in my FB feed ... made me happy and sad all at once.
The last holiday package is away! There is only a hostess gift to buy (probably a bottle of Kahula), and some lottery scratch offs to pick up for stockings and that is it!
I've been hiding little Christmas mice on Christmas trees at friend's houses. No one has found one yet. :-)
Just an FYI ... FF beats Google on hits to my Etsy shop. You guys rock!
Today is making a pretty concentrated effort to kick my arse ... please send chocolate.
Mom just called to tell me she had thought of some things she wanted for Christmas .... Sigh.
Are you sure we don't have the same mom? - Alix May
Tell her you'll write them down for next year - Steve C Team Marina
my mom wants a kindle for Christmas, we're lucky - chiaratiz™
She wants a reader and honestly I don't think I have the stamina to teach another electronic device cross country. Besides. I've purchased most of her gifts .. there isn't another $100 to spend :-( - Shannon - GlassMistress
I just want to say thanks! It is pretty awesome that my beads are making you, your friends and loved ones happy this year. I'm glad I could help and I want you to know that it helps me in return. You guys rock!
Can't wait to give my mum hers for her birthday in February :-) - Marina's Godmother :-)
I was thinking yesterday that I'd never eaten a chestnut ... Have you?
I don't think so. - John (bird whisperer)
Do water chestnuts count? - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Yep, roasted chestnuts served in rolled up newspaper. Yummy. - Todd Hoff
Yes, it was weird. They were boiled. - Eric - ill subliminal
Yep, even though they're kind of a pain to peel. You kind of get the hang of it after awhile. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Unfortunately, I have. I don't get the appeal. - Anika
Yup. Meh, they're ok. - rönin
Yeah, my dad insists on roasting them on Christmas Eve every year (we never used to - he started it a few years ago after having a strong reminisce about his childhood where apparently this was a standard holiday tradition for him). They're OK. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. Though after a few rounds of Tom-n-Jerries, chestnuts start to taste amazing. - Hookuh Tinypants
Yes, when I was a kid. Never as an adult. They didn't make a favorable impression on me. - Jenny H. from Android
That's on my list of post-apocalyptic foods, since they grow abundantly around here. I plan on grinding them into a flour to make pancakes. - April Russo
of course I have! I love chestnuts (roasted, not boiled) - chiaratiz™
I reconnected with my high school sweetheart last week and he commissioned a bead for his wife. My choices were frog or sea turtle. I made both to cover my bases, and honestly it's the best frog I've ever done, but I am STOKED over the turtle. It will be interesting to see which he chooses.

Heh. He chose one turtle AND the frog. :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Aww. He rounded his check up $10 and said he's tossing in some gift certificates for the restaurant he works for. Pretty damn nice if you ask me. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Oh those are ADORABLE! - vicster: hon. canadian
I wish I had better photography skills because these are so much prettier in person. They are packed with dichro glass (think, really sparkly glitter) that you just can see in the photo. - Shannon - GlassMistress
They're breathtaking and oughta win ribbons and prizes and all the shows. I'm such a fan! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
^^ *blushing* - Shannon - GlassMistress
Gorgeous. Sent you a message on Etsy. :) - Jenica
Jenica, I replied :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me... Did you know it takes sea turtles about 35 years to begin reproducing? And that they go on very long journeys before that happens? They're sort of a personal totem. :) - Jenica
I love this thread! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Love it Jenica - and I thank you (so does my truck - straight to the tire fund) :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
Stew is bubbling away in the oven ... Yes the oven. I'm thinking its a great idea since the heat will be more even than stove top or crock pot.
I've made it in the oven - it turns out very well that way. - Katy S
So. Cable dude flaked. He was supposed to be here between 5-7pm. Then by 7:30. Now by 9pm. I told them I'd call Monday to reschedule, but I'm considering canceling the whole thing. What's your vote?
We like living sans-cable and highly recommend it. - SAM
It's customer service like that that makes it nice to cut the cord. As long as you have good internet, you can get a lot of your TV from Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, YouTube and various network sites. - Spidra Webster
agree with the cord-cutting ... as long as you don't need to watch anything on espn. if you like espn, you're hosed without cable. as for me, giving up football coincided nicely with giving up cable. ymmv. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
This service was to improve our internet, and upgrade both the modem and the dvr... with no dollar increase to our bill. I'm not sure we'd actually see in improvement but I figured that for the same price going with the latest equipment made sense. - Shannon - GlassMistress
