Riddle for you...

What do you get when you take a sick girl who slept a lot in the day, and then couldn't sleep that night because she forgot to get her anxiety pills from the pharmacy?

Answer: ME! I could not sleep. It's been a long-ish night. Mostly I tried to at least rest, but even just laying there was hurting my head. I had a too-much-sun hangover (you know, that flu-ish, achy all over feeling) and felt like poop Tuesday night and Wednesday until about nine-ish. Then I just had a headache. And then suddenly it was 11 and I had no pills to make me tired. Damn!

There was a REALLY freaky bug in the house, plus a giant moth that could easily be mistaken for a small bird. The moth came into our room (since the lamp was on) and I wigged. Then that freaky, mutant mosquito thing came in and I doubly-freaked! B injured the moth, and it flew somewhere and died, I presume. The bug thing also disappeared, and B wussed out in fear and went to sleep in the living room. I, on the other hand, cannot sleep anywhere but my bed (most of the time) so I bravely soldiered on and covered my entire body except for my nose with my blanket. Finally, I decided to listen to some tunes, and I swear to all that is holy, that thing must have been perched somewhere, just waiting for a bit of light to flight toward. The Zen wasn't even on for one minute and the thing came at it. It brushed my eyebrow and I thought maybe it was the earbud cords, but then I saw it in front of the Zen screen and let out some sort of keen/wail/cry sound (which I couldn't hear very well cuz of the earbuds, but what it sounded like inside my head was awful) and I called for B and he came and murdalized it. We honestly have no clue what that thing was! bleh I hate mystery bugs!

Well, that's about it. I might go watch the sunrise. I feel like I should be packing to go fishing or camping, seeing as those are really the only times I'm up this early. :)

Sweet Fancy Moses!

I knew it had been a while since I blogged, but didn't realize just how long. Let's see...what have I been doing?

I have been watching what is happening with these:

Click to go to my flickr set to see for yourself!

I have been enjoying this Mother's Day gift:

The little lantern has a solar cell so after the sun goes down his lantern glows for a while. Isn't he cute?

And I've still been on the lookout for these:

Any funny signs. I took quite a few photos a couple weeks ago, but have seen more since so I need to go out and take more. This is one of my faves though.

I or we also:
☺ left MySpace (I have a regular blog, why did I need a MySpace page?)
☺ started a fairy garden
☺ planted a rosebush
☺ started my 52 Weeks Self Portrait album (which you can see here: 52 Weeks and that will be updated as I add pages.)
☺ have neglected any quilting for quite some time, just haven't been in the mood for it really. (and that should have a frownie, but I couldn't find one).
☺ added some stuff to my etsy shop.
☺ hung some heat and light blocking curtains to the kitchen, and they really do!
☺ got a laptop, for all of us, though B keeps referring to it as HIS. And it has a webcam, so we've been doing some little videos.
☺ joined twitter, which I don't fully understand yet. I think the disturbing part is the word 'following'. That has negative connotations for me.
☺ made some new friends on flickr, I can't believe the talent over there!

So that's about it, I guess. Sorry I went so long between posts. Really unusual for me, but I think I've summed it up quite nicely.
