Dear Steve Jobs & Michael Dell, I hold you responsible for my "honey-do' list never getting finished. Also I will be forwarding Dr's bills for eye strain and carpal tunnel to you respectively. As there is a mactop at his feet, I am holding you equally at fault for the addiction you have created. Sincerely, The PC Wife
Yikes! I knew I'd been busy, but I didn't know it had been a week since I posted. Can't really say why I haven't, other than by the time I finally get to sit down at night I want to curl up with a book or watch some mindless tv. I haven't been entirely unproductive though:
I brought the "superstar spirit" to a district wide teacher pep rally.
I got the young un involved in a Halloween project for indoors and out.
I lost feeling in my appendages while the supporting the Mr at friday night Football.
I found inspiration (and more goodies than I can afford) garage sale-ing.
I caught up on my guilty pleasure.
I stocked up on crazy socks/hats/hair for Red Ribbon week.
Especially when I had no idea he had even tried this little trick. I went into full panic mode when I saw this rash show up on his chin. We scrubbed, we alcohol swabbed, we lotion-ed. I'm pretty sure I sent him to bed thinking he had a fatal disease because it came up so quick and with no explanation. Fast forward to the morning commute when I spotted him in the backseat with a funnel stuck to his chin. Bruising explained.
This weekend's rain gave me lots of time to dig through Halloween decorations, and an excuse to try some projects I've had in the inspiration files. Last year I raided the dollar store Halloween items and armed myself with plenty of glitter and ribbon-- as if there's ever enough :) I try to mix in Halloween with my normal fall decor so I don't have to completely start over on November 1st.
One of my favorite inspiration sites is Family Fun Magazine. Last year the young un and I decided to make the CandleEyebra. Instructions can be found here, or you can take the Thrifty Decor Chick shortcut here.
If you haven't picked up the special Halloween edition, then you're in luck--- I have one copy to give away to a fabulous blog reader! All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me about your favorite Halloween costume. Mine was Velma (which you can see in my header) to compliment the young un's Scooby Doo obsession. I'll pick a winner Thursday morning at 7:00 A.M.
And with H1N1 season is full effect here in TX, a teacher can never have too much hand sanitizer. When I saw what Chris over on Just A Girl did for her co-teachers, I knew it would be the perfect October treat. Whew! what a crafty weekend-- would you believe I did it all in my pajama pants? :) But, I feel productive and that's all that really matters right?
