useless ramblings

Every once in a while I get it in my head that it's really time to get my act together and pull this place into shape. Do a super clean. Get some crafting/scrapbooking done. Try some new recipes. This was going to be my big week to get underway. (Past experience tells me that this gung-ho feeling will only last for a week or so, but at least I manage to get a few things done while it lasts.)

Anyway, wouldn't you know, I woke up during the middle of the night feeling as if I'd been run over by a very large vehicle, possibly a garbage truck. Head pounding. Throat raw. And let me just say, this overall feeling of malaise has pretty much pulverized those gung-ho feelings to dust. Oh well, there's always next week for productivity, right?

I did manage to post this week's menu over on my domestic-y blog. Haven't done that in ages, so maybe the day isn't a total loss.

In other weekend news, Gray and I read the last of The Spiderwick Chronicles books on Saturday. So yesterday, Rich took Gray to see the movie. They really seemed to enjoy it, though I guess it scared Gray a bit. According to Gray, the movie was quite a bit different from the books...not better or worse, just different.

We were supposedly going to get a big dumping of snow over the weekend, but we only ended up getting about 11 inches. Which isn't a bad amount, I suppose. Enough to look really pretty, but easy enough to deal with.

Well, Annie needs the computer for school, and since I'm really just blathering on about nothing, I suppose it's time to put an end to this post.

Feel better! There is nothing worse than the winter crud and what a week to have it since you were all ready to dig into some projects!

I hope you feel better soon, Debi, though if you've got the flu, well, it could take a few days. Folks here who have had it (including one in this house) took four or five days to get their energy back. Do rest and take care of yourself or let others take care of you. Again wishing we lived closer to each other!

Debi, I hope you feel better soon! No fun being sick! I love your menu plan post...that's fun! Though I have to admit that I have no idea what a couple of those things are...particularly wankerflots!

Aww, get well soon!

The menu sounds absolutely delicious. Mozzarella sticks, scrambled egg burritos, smoked beef macaroni...yummy!

Feel better soon, Debi!
I just happened to catch the trailer of that movie on TV last evening, it seems good. I'll have to check it out once it is released here.

Ooh, I hope you feel better soon. Take care of yourself :)

P.S. I'm still snickering about the "just 11 inches" comment. Hehehehe!

I do hope you get better soon! Being fun is absolutely no fun, especially when you were just in the mood to get a bunch of stuff accomplished.

If you do end scrapbooking, be sure to post a few pictures of your pages:-)

Our 1-2 inches was a lot for us!

I've been late in getting over here, but I hope you are now feeling better!
