started out good...

...ended up bummy. my day. up late, (well, 8:30am, late for normal) my first day of spring break, hoorah, stayed in pj's till mr. sprout threatened me to get off computer (b/c i still had to do sprout studio work....hello!), that was about 11:30, showered, hum hum hum...all fine...put yummy swaddlespa sweet orange shea butter cream all over, (i love this), went to exploratorium with friends who have 3 kiddos...seemingly a good idea (theie kids are dolls) but what was not so grand was realizing that i wanted to get *away* from crazy screaming kiddos as that is my life on a daily basis. so, not so good. left exploratorium (like a sciencey, art place) and decided to go see friends we haven't seen in ages, they have a baby now. that was good. cutest baby ever. ever. bluest eyes, just like his papa. very mellow. fun to visit and the sun actually popped out for a few. that was good too! came home, the mr. goes to work on vw's and i settle in to gather up my wholesale accounts and get them ready to post in the a.m. get on computer, good news! i've secured a fabulous place in brooklyn with wonderful friends to stay with over the renegade craft fair weekend, this is *very* good news. now, it goes downhill. i have a lost package to a customer and the whole situation, it's making me very sad & frustrated that they don't have what they ordered. so that bummed me out. then, i start looking at other people's blogs...(i should have just gone about my business, detached myself from said computer and acutally went to work on sprout stuff...but nnooooooo) i had to start blogging around. you know i have a problem with this. i have blog envy. i have confessed this before. but ya know, the root of it lies deeper than that. not just blog envy, but everything that the bloggers site that i check get accomplished...i feel like i'm sludging through molasses or something...they are all like, "oh, after i went to the gym this morning at 6am and had my green tea, i wanted you to look at this cute thing i made this morning, and this adorable thing i whipped up right after that, and then i decided to make this fabulous creation right around lunch time, & i made a fabulous homemede lunch of soup and crackers from scratch and then i churned some butter, and then, i painted an awesome little piece in the afternoon, walked the dog, cooked a meal, read an entire book, planted my garden, made a stuffed doggie toy, wrote a book review, and then decided i'd sew up this lovely little pillow here, and while i was at it, cross stitch this cool thing here, sew up a plushie stuffie right before dinner, drink some wine, watch tv and stay up until, oh, 2 am and make this amazing dozen cupcakes *and* cookies, and while the oven was hot i tried a new recipe for zuchinni bread too, right after that i sewed up this great handbag out of this vintage fabric i found at my thrift store run i did today right before cooking this 8 course dinner, then right before i brushed my teeth and jumped into bed, i did yoga and leg lifts and sit ups...and then i got up at 6 am all pert as can be...i love life.,,....." sheesh ah meesh...are you kidding me?? i must sound snarky and awful...but sometimes it's all i can muster to feel good about getting out of bed, taking dixie loo out and accomplishing two whole things on my to-do list. i dunno. anyone feel less than accomplished sometimes, or do i just need a continual drip of caffeine & high-on-life something to get me through..."ugh" is all i have to say at the end of this day....

i know. the solution is simple. stop frickin reading those blogs. i know. i know. i know.
