Creative talent that is. I have finally come to the sad conclusion that no matter how great the ideas in my head are, I cannot execute them. No ma’am. I’ve tried and tried over the years starting in high school. Making banners for sports…not my thing, In college…making signs for club, not so much. As a homemaker…let’s just say that I should probably stick to buying the stuff I like, instead of trying to make it. A few years ago, Joey and I found this sign we liked for our kitchen at “The Market”, basically a high-end crafters mall. We really liked the sign, but didn’t want to pay the $189.00 they were asking for it! So…we decided we could make it for less than $30.00, and we did! It actually turned out great, almost identical to the original, except for one little detail! After about 3 months of the sign hanging in our dining room, I noticed that something wasn’t quite right. Then it hit me…. OUR sign said “Bon Ape-Tit” instead of “Bon Appetit”. OH MY WORD!!! Had people noticed and not told me? Was I really stupid(and if I was Mr. English major was too!)? Oh well, it is a great memory!!! The sign now lives in our garage. It certainly takes on a different meaning at dinnertime!
So this week I’ve been trying to get the recipe project underway. I’ve been a little indecisive about the whole thing. I’ll keep you posted on my progress. We’ll see how it goes!
Days 2,3 & 4 of this week have not been very productive at all! Well actually Tuesday was productive, just not at home. While Jaxon & Isabelle were at Sonshine School, Renee and I set out to establish my career wardrobe! We did great! I now own 5 yes FIVE suits! I’m not really a suit girl, but starting Monday I will be! I am totally set with complete outfits!! I could not have done it without my fashion guru best friend! She even finished the outfits off with accessories~ Thank you Renee!!
Yesterday about 5:30, Jaxon & I were casually strolling through Hobby Lobby when Jax proceeded to throw up ALL OVER himself & me! At least it didn’t get all over the floor! That would have been the second shopping embarrassment for the day. The first was at walmart where a 60″ beaded necklace got caught around Jaxon’s neck & the cart, so when we pulled on it, it busted all over the check out line. Beads were EVERYWHERE!! Fun stuff! At least Jaxon thought is was cool! Ok, so back to the vomiting…He has since thrown up 7 times and has had a high fever. He is constantly moaning & crying & only wants to be held by me. I feel so bad for him. It has been a trying day – Oh the joys of MOTHERhood! We went to the Dr. today & he has a 12 hour bug, probably contracted by someone at Sonshine School on Tuesday!! He is already feeling some better & should be back to normal tomorrow!!
Well, that’s about all I have for now! Hope you’re all having a great week!!
