Good grief.

Say it just like Linus from Charlie Brown. "Goooood grief." Where is my time going? I don't even leave home most days and STILL it's slipping through my hands! Agh! The Christmas Season MUST be fast approaching. This is the only explanation. And I still have a trip to Japan to plan and pack for! It is a good thing indeed to have a husband. I just hope that before the year is over I'll have made it to my knitting class!
On a lighter note, I found my little Kodak digital camera hiding in one of my cleaning baskets (??) so now I'll have a handy camera to take with me around Tokyo when that five-pounder camera just won't do. :)
Well, it's time for lunch and back to work! I will say this though, it's lovely having iTunes. I've got my 21.7 hours of Christmas music playing all day in the background. It's awesome.

We will return to our regularly scheduled programming in January. :)

My blog has apparently gone mad. I've lost all my sidebar information! Drats! It's in a transition phase... yah... :) It'll be back to normal soon, I hope.

I'm on some sort of natural high right now. I know it. I keep squealing and giggling and clapping my hands... or maybe I'm just a really silly woman. But there's a great reason: I just completed my first two purchases on Etsy! That's right! Less than 24 hours on the market and two have sold! This is too awesome. I opened my mail tonight after Victor and I got home from an (amazing) afternoon at Mom and Dad's to find two emails confirming orders from Etsy. I squealed. THEN I got two more from Paypal saying, essentially, "Congratulations. We've just dumped money into your account." Sure, it's only $22, six of which will go to shipping tomorrow, but it's a start! And an encouraging one at that! Nothing's bringin' me down tonight! I'm all smiles. I want to do something special for my first buyer. I mean, it takes a little bravery to buy from a seller who has 1) no feedback and 2) no selling history. I'm so thankful for her! Maybe an extra set of markers? I don't know. I'll think of it. Right now, though, I've got to come up with a clever way to ship these. After all, it's not every day people get a package in the mail. It should be special.

Well, good night! I've got so much to do!
