Thursday morning I woke up grumpy. crabby. a little bit annoyed with the world. I hate when my alarm has to wake me up. Usually I get up long before the alarm (I set it as a last resort in a kind of "guess i need the sleep if i don't get up before it" way). The alarm scared me. I woke up from a dream with my heart pounding. And then read some work emails that made me even more grumpy.
But two things got me out of my grumpiness.
(I love how she packages everything. Perfect. It really is like opening up a gift for yourself. And it would be so easy to send someone a gift from her site. Love it.
(okay so it may not look like i am a redhead. but i am a brunette with red highlights, really i am. yep. i am.) (oh and the reason i didn't show my whole face is because i think i looked "middle aged" in that photo - not that there is anything wrong with that, if you are indeed middle aged but at 30 i don't think i am so much there yet. but a clerk at the mall said to me, after i commented that i hadn't noticed this new hipper section of clothes that isn't just for juniors before, "yes, it is kind of a hip middle age section." ah. okay. glad i just bought one thing. oh and she was, by the way, my mom's age. so a bit older than moi.)
The second thing that got me out of my crabbiness was a phone call from my friend (thanks V. so good to catch up).
I highly recommend buying yourself a little gift or two from one of the independent artists out there in blog world. Go on. You know you want to.
