Catch Up Night

Well, tonight I am hoping to catch up on all the DaGMT time that I didn't get put in this week. Sunday, we were out of the house all day. Monday I decided to cook dinner. Somehow there never seems to be enough time to cook and sew in the same evening. Tuesday I was out of the house until 8 pm (stupid dentist appointments), and on Wednesday I didn't get home until 8:30 (sewing lessons with Maddie and Bible Study).

Today I came straight home after work. I did not pass go, I did not collect $200 dollars (bummer) and I am now vegging out in my pajamas and big fluffy bright red uber-warm bath robe.

So a few points of interest in the meantime...

(1) If you want to see Robocop, wait until it comes out on DVD for rental. It was decent, but not fabulous. Gary Oldman's character was super awesome.

(2) My boss brought in some polymer clay items that she has been playing with. She also showed me a video on how to make the canes (think Fimo clay). It is pretty epic. She's been working on creating gradients in color that she can use as a reference for the canes she wants to make. Ah, if I only had time for another hobby. It would be great, but I don't have enough time for my current hobbies. Maybe in my next life. And in the meantime, I'm trying to convert her from beading and knitting to quilting.

(3) I desperately want a digital document scanner (Not. Cheap.) to reduce the paper fluff I've got going on around here, but in the mean time my latest organization innovation involves a trash can and a shredder. The best part is location - right by the front door.

It is far from pretty but now when those stupid credit card applications come in the mail, they go right in the shredder instead of in a pile to be shredded "eventually." And we all know how far away "eventually" is. "Eventually" rolls around about once a year. I plan to "eventually" upgrade to a stand alone cross cut unit that can handle about fifteen sheets at a time instead of the little six sheet shredder (which really means three sheets of paper) that I currently have.  I won't even have to take the junk mail out of the envelope to be shredded.

Ok, I'm off to do all that stuff I usually do right before bed so that I can chill the rest of the night while Jack watches the Red Wing's Game and shouts out the highlights for me!
