i have a lot going on.
i bet you do too.
i have a bunch of things to blog about... but don't have time right now.
i just made my second cup of coffee SO i am going to pretend that you and i are having coffee togerther and just say a bunch of stuff... as if we met for coffee. :)
my phone is still gone. i am hoping it arrives tomorrow.
i have REALLY missed it.... but also not missed it at all. that's weird right? i love being in touch but i have had so much to do this week that it's probably best it's gone.
i really miss instagram and keeping up with my friends on there! i feel WAY out of the loop!
i mean what are people doing right now?? what are they eating? what are they wearing? where are they going?!
i need to know!
but i do love that when i have it. not because i want to KNOW but because my far away friends don't seem so faraway with instagram.... ya know?
see... i told you i was having coffee.
i also went running this morning with my girlfriends.
i am still in my gear... 2 hours later.
i did put on some lipstick because i brought no make up to Haiti and at the customs line to get back in the US the man looked at me and my passport and said "so... you are a missionary?"
i said "HEY.... come on!" it was the no makeup i am positive.
no disrespect to missionaries of course.
if anything HE was disrespecting missionaries. just assuming they look like that.
and i had thrown up earlier in the day.
then 5 minutes later a customs officer got my attention and said "Maam...maam? Are you alright?"
i stopped and looked around and said "Me? Yeah i am alright. What? WHY?!"
he said "Ohhh....well you just looked like you were sad."
what i wished i had said :
THIS IS MY FACE WITHOUT MAKEUP THANKYOUVERYMUCH. now excuse me i have missionary things to do."
what i really said:
"I am fine. thanks"
so i figured i should at least put on some lipstick for you since i am still in running gear.
i stopped at the antique store & thrift shop on my way to the Craft House because sometimes it just calls to me.
look what i got!
a coca-cola crate with big spaces.... my favorite.
and a little chalkboard.
the chalkboard will look so nice in a grouping of other wall hangings i think.
and i got this quilt!
these pics are from photo booth on the computer. and my screen is smashed (bummer!) and so they are all grainy.
but you can see that i found a neat-o quilt.
yes.... kansas thrifting is ammmaaaashing.
oh... have you seen the SNL skit of the californians. it's from last may.
it is so dumb.
but so funny when you watch more than once and start talking like that.
craig and i quote it all the time!
see..... i told you it was dumb.
but sometime today you will catch yourself saying aammaashing.
ha ha ha
i am cleaning the craft house again today.
because it's rented this weekend!
did you know you can rent the craft house?
all the details are coming soon.
if you can't wait and you need them before i get around to blogging it.... email me.
so i have to get to it.... time to crank up the Pandora and rock the vacuum.
one last sip....
i forgot to ask about YOU!
How are you? what have you been up to? what are you doing this weekend?
(see... that is truly what happens when people run into me out and about... they ask a question and i blab on and on and then have to run and then realize all i did was talk and didn't ask how they were. i want to know those things but i am poor question asker. but on the flip side.... i am a great question ANSWERer! :)
so...really.... what IS going on with you?
