Aiden is sick with some mystery ailment and is not making life easy for me this week. I found myself secretly wishing that the world would be swallowed up in a self-made black hole when they switched on the LHC last night. *SIGH* No such luck. I'll be trying to console an irritable toddler all day with the Color Wonder markers and 97¢ party noise makers I bought at Wal-Mart last night "in case of emergency" for today. BOTH came out before his first nap at 9 am.
In between the mayhem I am trying to knock things off my never-ending, always growing to-do list. I believe I have agreed to do too much this fall. The stress hurts and I'm about as irritable as Aiden. Things will slow down after Halloween, which feels like an eternity away. For now I will finish typing this and then clean my floors. That will probably make me feel better! At least I can check it off my list!
P.S. In case you were wondering, I think the January Valentine craft is going to be pink metal mini buckets with vinyl lettering and clear cellophane treat bags to go inside with ribbon ties that you can fill with candy and use for teacher's gifts, neighbor's gifts or for your own home decoration. They're easy, inexpensive and adorable!
P.P.S. Yes, Miss Mint's site is down. Yes, something big and cool is coming! Yes, I have seen new products and I know she's working on some other new things as well. I'd bet a new freebie is one of them but don't quote me on that. I haven't seen a new freebie at all - not a single paper or element - it's just my speculation. You can follow all the fun on Miss Mint's Blog and I am not confirming or denying any of the rumors about what will or will not be on the site when it re-opens. NO, I do not know what she looks like! I have only talked to her on the phone and I can tell you she's a girl and she's 29. And she really hates when I make her say "this is Miss Mint" when I pick up the phone! ROFL!
