Crummy day today-- I've been in an awful mood and have no idea why-- Maybe it's because Camden continues to get up at 7am? Maybe it's because I was jealous because Joe got to sleep in until 9.30? Maybe because Camden was cranky all day and we were supposed to meet up with friends for a Bar-B-Que but because he was cranky and I was cranky all we did was wallow in our own self pity all day.... Maybe it's because last night I didn't feel like cooking so I picked up Sonny's BBQ for us-- and the lady only gave me half of my order, so I had to go back, and then when I went back she still forgot my drinks, and I forgot the drinks too, so then I had to stop at a fast food chain for drinks, and the woman filled up the drinks to the top until they overflowed, put the lid on and then tried to _hand_ the drinks to me though the window-- dripping wet everywhere, and when I asked for a napkin she scoffed. I wanted to throw a fit right there. I wanted to toss the drinks back at her so she could feel the syrupy wetness drip down her arms, too. But, I didn't. I just came home and shared this all with my husband-- I ranted-- I went on and on. I finally told myself to shut up because it was so negative. And here I continue... and why? Because, today, Joe picked up lunch for us, checked the bags quickly and came home-- WITHOUT my main course... So we each had a baked potato and shared the chicken, because they FORGOT mine. So today we vowed to eat at home unless we're going to a sit down place. No more picking stuff up on the fly. -Which sucks for me, but probably will be better for our health. I need to call Rachel Ray.
SO MIDDAY I had to go to the grocery store. YES, I went yesterday, but I've been doing these "mini-trips" instead-- so ANOTHER trip today-- and a side trip to Books-A-Million on the way home to run in and pick up this:
The new issue of CLOTH PAPER SCISSORS!!!! This is an awesome magazine! Amy recommended it awhile back and I just now finally decided to get it. I immediately flipped through and my most favorite part?
Since I've been knitting and teaching myself to knit lately, this really touched my heart and I instantly WANTED one!
I also loved the section on creative journaling:
Seeing as I've been drooling over people's moleskine photos on flickr, while mine continue to look awful!!!
.... but maybe I've broken the cycle! For a little Memorial Day spirit, I took my cranky baby on a drive this evening to get him to sleep and ended up at Lake Ella, where I sketched a helicopter that they have situated there as a memorial. So, I sketched a Memorial on Memorial Day. -- and I'll post a picture later.
So, a crummy day turned better through art!!! ...but I still think I owe my husband an apology for the beeotch that has ruled the roost the last few days. Sorry, hon. Love you!
