Directions. Pesky little things those directions. Typically I'm stellar at following them and equally stellar at knowing when to toss them out the window and improvise. The later, totally throws the hubby for a loop, especially when I hand him a recipe I've made a million times and tell him to just "eyeball" most of it. My man just doesn't understand the concept.
But it seems lately, that I've fallen down on the job of following directions a bit. I've misplaced library books. I've forgotten to pick up groceries that were on the list I was holding in my hand. I've showed up to doctor's appointments on the wrong day. Twice. And lastly, I failed to read on the PTI assignments this month that I was supposed to create a card along with my calendar project. I swear I'm losing my mind.
When begging for forgiveness, I find it useful to blame somebody else. Or flash a picture of a baby or a puppy dog up to distract people. Seeing as it's my 13 week old whom I'm throwing under the blame bus and therefore using both strategies, I should get extra forgiveness. Ah, finally the cracks in the armor are showing!:) Super Mom does not live at my house.
Here's the little miscreant herself. All 16 pounds, 4 ounces of her. 100th percentile people. She'll beat you up if you give her momma any trouble.
But my oops! is your bonus. I'm going to post my card right now. For all you last minute people who are still trying to figure out your list for tonight. On the fence about that calendar die? Well...I find it works great on cards too. Tickled pink (and not just from the embarrassment of screwing up an assigment) that it turned out so well.
Happy shopping tonight! Got to go get all the Vario tabs out of Hank's hair. He stole him off my desk while I was trying to write up something clever:). I believe that whole "balance" concept is a urban myth.
