Better now.

Note to self: do not try to catch up on several days’ worth of blogs when you are really tired. It will just be needlessly overwhelming.

So I’m doing much better today than I was last night, other than having done housework ‘til I ached from head to toe. By the way, it’s completely pathetic how very little housework it actually takes to make me ache from head to toe. :-b Anyway, I just got done going through and commenting on my “regular” blogs and found when I reread the entries that had bothered me so much last night, I was mostly reading more into it than was really there, thus the note above.

I didn’t really do much today other than the housework. Mark did his share and then played with the kids while I finished up. His D&D group is here now, sounds like they’re just finishing up, and the magician is due to arrive at any moment.

I did find some time to do a little freebie downloading and file organizing and then got totally sucked into the $1 font sale going on at Lettering Delights. I mean they have ALL of their fonts on sale. I only have 4735 fonts according to my font manager. (Truly. That’s not an exaggeration.) So surely I need more, right? So I went through all 937 fonts on the site and plunked the 150 or so that I really liked into my cart. I went through and eliminated the 30 or so I already have but had forgotten about. (I really shouldn’t take that as a sign of anything, right?) I printed out the remaining list and am in the process of examining those and seeing which I still really like and which are quite similar to ones I already have, and of the ones I’ve picked out that are similar to each other, which I like best. So far I’ve narrowed it down to 96, but I got a quarter of the way through the list and realized that I hadn’t ever finished that font organization I started a while back, and to really make an informed decision that really needs to be done, and… well, you can see where this is going. :-b

But anyway, I am better now. In fact, I think I will treat you to the lyrics of my current favorite song. Sing with me now…

Collective Soul - Better Now

Oh I'm newly calibrated
All shiny and clean
I'm your recent adaptation
Time to redefine me

Let the word out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now
Break the news out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now

Oh I'm happy as Christmas
All wrapped to be seen
I'm your recent acquisition
Time to celebrate me

Let the word out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now
Break the news out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now

The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking me down

The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking me down



:-D

Oh great; I didn't really need to see that sale info, now did I? I just spent $100 at TheDigiChick.com's sale last week... sigh Wonder if it's (the one you mention) is still going on? I'll have to type fast and find out. ;)

I'm so with you on the housework thing (this fact alone makes me wonder if we share genetic material, perhaps from some very, very distant relative). I did't get much cleaning done Friday, so it was all on Saturday: a complete cleaning/reoganization/furniture movin' overhaul of our loft (trust me, this was a lot of work), a thorough cleaning of Molly's room, a minor clenaing of James', more work than I should have needed to do in our master bedroom and bathroom and oh! speaking of bathrooms - the kids' bathroom had gotten out of control since Steve has been regrouting and recaulking in there. And that's just upstairs. Downstairs, we hit all of our "hot spots" on the counters (who am I kidding - it's one big hotspot), vacuumed, swept, swept again, cleaned...oh wait, this is just a comment box, not my own blog. ;) Anyway, point is, we did all that yesterday morning, working straight through from 7:30 am until 4:30 pm. I was ready for bed by then...not company. ;)

Anyway, enjoy your clean house! If you are like me, you'll resolve to keep it like this since it feels so great. I hope I do it this time. ;)

Kim, I am right there with the whole week getting by you. I seem to have a serious lack of time lately. I am doing a big house cleaning today, it is out of control here.

Kim, I am so glad that you are feeling so much better ... even your words are *lighter* on the page. :o)

Housework sounds like a common theme here ... I cleaned yesterday, and then had a surprise party for some friends last night ... thankfully, we're not trashed this AM.

Hope the day continues to be bright!
