Thursday Already???

Man, this week has flown and not in a good way! I feel like I have been moving normally but the fast-forward button has been pressed on Time. I felt really crappy the past couple of days so I haven't been able to do nearly as many of the things on my big ol' To Do list as I'd have liked, so today I feel like I need to work in fast-forward to catch back up! And so far this morning it's working. Sweeeet.

[As if to prove a point, Time got just right away from me again today. I wrote this post this morning and didn't have time to proof and post until tonight!]

When I'm feeling less-than-amazing, I like to make lists of things that are making me happy and/or excited. So here's some things that made the list while I was concentrating on not throwing up lately:

Thank goodness Kate and Dave (and their girls and dogs and house!) made it through Hurricane Ike okay. They are out of power but other than that they're well. And I just can't tell you how happy I am about that.

A while back I posted a snippet about a stupid Silk soy milk commercial that makes me crazy. [The actress says she was "weary" of trying soy milk. If you speak English at a seventh-grade level then you should know that weary means tired. What she means is that she was either leery or wary of trying soy milk.] Apparently I am not the only person who noticed and was annoyed by this because I've now received two comments on that post from people who found it in a Google search they did after seeing the commercial. This pleases me greatly and I'm not exactly sure why. :)

I've been working on some new stuff (jewelry and papercrafts) for my etsy site, and hopefully will have photos to show you tomorrow and links to them in the store (fingers crossed). I've also been working on some extra goodies to include in Stella's and Katie's kits to thank them for their orders and I've just gotten carried away! I made some extras so if you place an order mention you saw it on here and your kit will have a nice extra goodie bag included with it!

I'm super excited about Saturday--I'm driving two hours south to Richmond to meet Deitra, who is driving an hour and a half north so that we can both take three classes from Donna! It will be a looooong day, but 12 of those hours will be spent with Deitra talking and painting and laughing and watercoloring and laughing and cutting and pasting and laughing and eating and possibly belly dancing, because that's just how it rolls when you're with Deitra. Sweet!! And I got our Neocolor IIs in from Dick Blick since I had a brainstorm and asked if she would split expedited shipping with me after they came back into stock--duh and yeah!

Kimberley wrote a super nice note about me on her blog! She said, "This blog is a fun delight for me to read, and Cameron shares her talent and herself through and through." How nice! What's super funny is that she's never posted a comment before so I didn't even know she was reading! Which just goes to show that you never know who's reading (and what they're thinking of it!) in this crazy blog world! I'm going to make sure to leave a few more happy comments on a few more people's blogs just to let them know I'm there and digging it. :) And you should, too!

Today I'm going in for physical therapy and running a whole ton of errands on the way there and back; bank, post office, Michael's, Costco, used book store. [Now it's the end of the day and how stoked am I that I can say I did all of those things? Plus a few more.] See you tomorrow for Favorite {Photo} Friday!

So many super good things happening or about to happen. I can't wait to check out the rest of your goods in your shop. And I can't wait to see what you create with Donna. I refuse to click your link to classes because I want to be surprised. I'll click the link after. And I can't wait to see what you post for favorite photo Friday. yeeehaw!
