I am exhausted. Faith and I met up with Chris and her sister-in-law last night to see Memoirs of a Geisha. (I really liked the movie. There are a lot of details lost in translation from the book to the screen, but I expected that. They did a good job of pretty much sticking with the story line and covering all the highlights.) Faith fell asleep in my lap, but I knew she might because the movie didn't start until 8:30. She said she was still glad she got to go out with just me, though, and I enjoyed having some one on one time with her too.

Since it was a late movie, we didn't get home until about midnight. I can never go straight to bed, so I ended up being up later than I expected because I am still trying to fix my blog to look the way I want it to. I am playing with brushes to try to make a paisley background. I have learned a lot the last few days playing with the CSS code to change things around, but it is also very frustrating!

Today Jack and I pulled everything out of our storage closet and the garage. We went through everything and took a lot of it to the thrift store, threw quite a bit away, and repacked what we kept neatly so it will be easy to move. Then I cleaned the house pretty good and cooked dinner. The lack of sleep and extra work have left me feeling beaten up and dazed... but it isn't anything a good backrub and a hot bath wouldn't fix! (Well, maybe a full night of sleep too.. :0)

I sat down with my beading magazines and cut out the pieces I want to recreate. I am going to do the same thing with my scrapping mags tonight. That clears up a whole lot of space in my room!

I don't have a lot to talk about today, although I found a couple of poems I wrote as a teenager today that I am thinking about posting for a laugh or two. Maybe I will do that tomorrow.

Sounds like you are getting very organised, I've done a bit, but could do more. Isn't it amazing what a New Year does to you?

I like how you have your template setup for the blog. Bigger margins and how you did the right hand side with the 2 columns.
