Yep, it meaning I, am. It was a rough road traveling down the past five days. But I made it through, albeit a little out of practice at the office (fax machine, what is that?!) and a few dollars shorter on the old paycheck. BTW, I definately resembled Frankenstein's bride on at least 3 of those days.
To those of you who have recently called/emailed/text/left notes on my windshield to let me know you are reading this blog (these folks are my friends and family, please don't call me until we've properly met..) BECOME A FOLLOWER AND COMMENT! It's fun to blog, sitting at my desk hoping my boss won't stroll through the open door and catch me wasting time on the company's clock. But, and I say this with a grateful tone, it's hard to blog if you don't know anyone is reading it. To Mrs. Slug, thanks :) You're a pal and I appreciate your kindly comment. I am proud to report that I had only two cups of house brewed java whilst sicky and I feel much less sicky today because of it. Good advice!
On other fronts, I successfully mastered the art of jam making, both frozen and traditional canning methods. I now have 5 adorable little jars of fresh strawberry jam sitting in my freezer in a perfect little row and 2 rather large (probably too large) jars of gingered peach jam, the exact color of a Crayola Goldenrod crayon, sitting proudly on my pantry rack. Whole wheat and olive oil biscuits (thanks Blogga ;) ) are ready for the bake. Come over, I'll feed you a tasty little bite!
And to reveal what most of you who know me already know, my life is preparing to get a heckofalot more exciting. Marriage?! No. Unplanned baby?! No. Bought a house, paid off a credit card, got a raise??!! No silly, New Moon is out in T Minus 12 days!!! Yes, my adolescent obsession over a vampire love story turned love triangle complete with dreamy boys and werewolves and red contacts, the Twilight Saga (yes, it is a saga.) I am proud to say that 6 tickets to the Friday night showing have been pre-purchased and are at the ready, now I just need to talk the ball and chain into joining (don't let me down Baby!) and 4 other people (strangers maybe? I could hit up the local middle school for new friends..)
