I Am So Pro-Meds

List of things that happened yesterday:

* Kept daughter home from school sick.

* Drove to my first prenatal appointment at 7:45 AM (yes... really).

* Nearly threw up in the car.

* Saw doctor, found out I was overweight (no surprise there), and got a prescription for anti-nausea medication. *choir sings Hallelujah*

* Forgot to turn my car lights off, nice lady at doctors office points it out to me. I feel like an idiot.

* Actually made it to my class and found out that my final portfolio needs to have a piece of my writing not done for class. Woo Hoo! Too easy.

* Became acutely aware of where the garbage can was in class and nearly had to use it. Much prayer ensued and I was blessedly saved from the embarrassment of retching in class.

* Received a phone call saying that first born son had forgotten his shoes at home and only had his snow boots. (I decided he could learn a little lesson and didn't take them down to him).

* Put the baby down for a nap, took a nap myself. I think my sister called and talked to my daughter but I have no memory of the conversation.

* Woke from my nap with an intense craving for a Whopper with cheese--plain. Loaded baby and daughter into car and drove to Burger King.

* Enjoyed every single bite.

* Nearly threw it all back up while my daughter patted my back sympathetically and explained that I should stop a policeman because they were there to help.

* Waited for nearly an hour at the pharmacists while they tried to convince my insurance card that it was more than just a piece of plastic and had value beyond what it saw in itself.

* Took first anti-nausea pill.

* Picked up son at school. He wasn't to happy since he didn't get to play on the playground all day.

* Ate dinner... and a cookie... and a can of pineapple and didn't get sick!

* Vacuumed the living room (huge accomplishment okay)

* Managed to read some of "The Count of Monte Cristo" before collapsing in a heap of exhaustion and blissful non-stomach roiling.

I hadn't known that anti-nausea medicine existed until my sister told me that her daughter was put on it. Of course that was about 3 years after we were done with pregnancy.

What a wonderful invention!
I am pro meds too! I hated morning sickness.

Holy crap! I'm exhausted just reading what you did. Glad you got some anti-nausea pills. I think that is one of the worst feelings in the world.

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.


I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

How-To Pretend You Work For Anthropologie

The problem with Anthropologie is that they cost way too much money. WAY TOO MUCH! I mean, come on--these book boxes:

Cost $68-$188!

Do you have that kind of money?

I don't, but you know what I do have? I have a library with a cart full of free books that no one really cares about! So guess what I did... I made my own (and then I gave them away because I really don't have anywhere to put them).

Here's how.

I Am A Phoenix

This is a drawing I did right after my divorce, when I was trying to discover my life's course and who I was as a person. Divorce is this horrendously nasty thing that leaves a person with little to nothing of who they were before (at least that's how it was for me). My family was gone, at one point I had counted up blood/legal relatives that had stopped talking to me and it was nearly 60. Things were bad, but one of the recurring comments I heard from other divorcee's was 'Get bitter, or get better.' So I aimed for better. I came up with my own personal code of conduct (Quiet Dignity) and my own personal motto.

The motto the drawing is based off of is: 
"I am a Phoenix. I was born for the fire and I will rise from the ashes."
But, that's not all. Each aspect of the drawing has meaning. I researched these... so I hope I got them right. lol
I chose to make my image reminiscent of a mandala with the most significant parts at the very center. The shape i…
