I swear that I remember I have a blog...

It's just that I completely forgot to say, "Hey, I'm gonna be sparse because I'm on vacation." My mom came into town and we had a great time and I completely forgot about my business and my blog and everything that has to do with it. But now I'm back! And I have a ton of new ideas for paintings that I can get started on once I get some supplies! Because I was in a creative dry spell my husband bought me this:



One look through this book and I am filled with tons of new ideas using all the new mediums I discovered! On my list of needs: a circular sander, more modeling paste and other mediums, a hot plate, and some tuna cans.

I actually had that as my facebook status a couple of days ago and my friend asked if I watched Pinky and the Brain back in the day and whether I was planning to take over the world. I answered no, I needed that stuff for artistic purposes, but now that I think about it, I'll bet those would be useful. Macguyver style, you know? (Note: I've never seen Macguyver, I've just heard the jokes.)

Pet peeve of the day: When you get an e-mail from a credit card company (of a credit card you only keep for medical purposes that currently has no balanace) that says, "IMPORTANT! changes to your account" and you go into it and it just says stuff about promotional periods for new purchases. That is not an IMPORTANT! change to my account. Caps are not needed. Thank you for the mild heart attack.

By the way, I totally hit most of my goals. Including the 10 lbs. lost one. :) Go me. It helps that all food currently repulses me. For about the past week I've had constant nausea and all I want is french bread and watermelon...either I've got a stomach bug, I've got anxiety issues, or I'm pregnant. It's a little better today. Less constant. For the first time, if I were pregnant, it wouldn't be a financial crisis. But, as I'm still slightly scared of children (they still intimidate me), I'd prefer a bug. Plus, pregnant women can't ride California Screamin' at Disneyland, and that's where I'll be in three weeks!
