This week flew by! And next week is thanksgiving. Hello- that is a SCARY thought! Not only because it’s inching closer and closer to Christmas, and Christmas stresses me out. but because I have a lot of really serious deadlines. By that I mean, I am really supposed to be taking them seriously- here in the next couple of weeks. every year work deadlines come down to the wire and make it really hard to focus real attention on holidays. I think that everyone’s body subconsciously deals with stress in different ways. For me… I get huge canker sores when I am stressed. And right now- I can’t even believe how big this canker sore is right on the inside of my bottom lip. I need to measure the diameter, cause it might go in the book of world records. And it hurts so bad. and cause it hurts so bad, I then clinch my jaw. Which actually jaw clinching is another sign of my being stressed. My jaw and teeth are so sore…along with my lip. So i am having a hard time eating and drinking and brushing my teeth. And I love to brush my teeth. So it’s really bugging me.
K, sorry for that venting!
This morning I totally indulged myself. after the kids went to school, I fed Capri, and we both went back to bed. I slept in until 11am. (gasp) I can’t even remember when I got that kind of a sleep in! it was so awesome! The bummer was that ½ my day was gone, but I think that sometimes you have to do that! So I did.
Yesterday em and I spent the day at Bazzill, we are getting right back into the thick of Creative Escape meetings and preparations. It’s so nice having one year under our belt, and using that information to our advantage in our planning. This year we are going to be so much smarter as we put this all together. it’s going to be an amazing event again, and we have such cool exciting stuff in the works. If you haven’t already, be sure that you go to the creative escape website and sign up to get notified as we update the website with additional information. In the next little while, we will be announcing the teachers, sponsors and definite ‘teasers’. You can get on there and see when registration starts for next year as well as info about the event and venue and stuff like that!
Ok, so if you don’t have a baby in your life, maybe you haven’t seen this remarkable little chair. I had never seen or heard of it, until my sister-in-law bought one for my 6 month old niece. It’s called a Bumbo chair. I broke down and bought one tonight. of course I got a pink one for miss Capri. And it’s a really pretty pink color! So I was happy about that. Capri LOVEs it! she is just starting to need WAY more interaction and attention. She I starting to enjoy little toys and does not like to be in any way a part of me multi-tasking. She wants all my attention and focus. I don’t understand why she is so happy sitting on my lap- you know, perfectly content… but if I set her down on the couch…she falls apart! She just has to be right in all the action. So maybe with this bumba chair, I will sit her right here on my desk next to me and she can catch my typos!
She looks so cute, and so alert! Man, they grow up too fast. It’s just not fair.
