feeling kinda wistful

for.... the past? I think.

I've been wondering what it would be like to be a teenager again. (not that it was horribly long ago, but i grew up fast) What would it be like to have summer and winter vacations. To just have school work to worry about.

Then again, there are things I wouldn't give up for the world. Ht and the kitties are one of those things, but my sense of independence and ownership of my life.

That said, 4 days off work, yah that was pretty nice. Though I haven't used it to do a lot of fun stuff. I cleaned, picked up, got all HT's gifts (when the spiff check comes in it's kinda like the only shot), and pretty much finished my friends wedding photos (they just need to be printed now).

There's a part of me that wants to do everything right now and another part that's like "hold up there. It's going to be hectic soon. Why don't you just enjoy a little down time while it lasts."

So this is a bit rambling, but i probably wont post much during the holidays. So er.. happy holidays and remember to relax

warm things

This is a warm thing.

I made it.

It is pretty and MamaGrouch took this picture.

My brain is fairly dead at the moment.

It seems the season of folks coming into the store at 5:30 and not deciding till 6:10 (we close a 6) has started.

Yah, I made this. I think I might make an other.

ps, thanks for the pretty picture.

I've got..

Comfy new PJs. It's been kinda ruff the past few weeks, what with the UC acting up and all. There are somedays where its hard to make it out the door. Some nights where it's hard to get any sleep.

So, some comfy new pjs were in order. Something warm and soft is a great way to brighten a mood. Even if just for a little while.

We Did IT!!!

We Won the Presidential Election!

This is great. His speech gave me chills.

I'm looking forward to the next four years.

That said, The Aint Gay amendments that are passing make me quite sad. We have picked a uniter for our president, but we can't unite ourselves.

I hope that some day people wont be so closed minded. I hope that our new president can help move us in that direction.

But here's the thing, "i hope". That's kinda a new thing here for the "happy sinic"

cross your fingers everyone.

hallween party?

At my store we like to dress up for Halloween. I'm the one with the Blaster. We made it that day at work I might add. Though a real/replica of Princess Leia's Blaster would be really cool, i'm just not willing to spend that much.... right now.. or in a year... maybe in two...

Any who, the lady next to me is not Philis Diller, but Marge Simpson. I really got a kick out of the blue feathers.

Right, so I should really stop calling my "parties" parties. Why? Because they are more like relaxing get togethers than romping stomping times. Though it was fun. There was good food (all made by me). And there were good people.

Miss J of the Science Brain even stopped by with tasty homemade bread and we knitted. Her second attempt at a cardigan is looking really good this time.

So hope everyone had a good time last night. I know i did.
