I am quite the believer in having a hobby. When I don't have some little project going on the back burner I feel like "all work and no play". Especially now that Jordan has left I have needed to keep my mind occupied to the point of exhaustion
all most hours of the day (The nightmares I've been having recently are a whole 'nother story.) Blogging is only one of my new time-wasters. I have taken up cross-stitching, and I must say, I am pretty dang good at it. I am doing these three little monkeys that are doing the "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" thing.
I have also given in financially and bought myself a Disneyland pass!!! The most exciting hobby is being a Disneyland AP holder, I have missed the park (and the discounts) so much! I went twice last week. It helps we have a friend in the Christmas Parade =)
Also, Jordan being gone gives me a hobby within itself. I have an excellently organized binder of his letters and copies of the letters I send to him. Shut up- its not crazy. Crazy would be if I read them 3 times a day and had a notebook dedicated to planning our wedding (which I do NOT, by the way). I write a letter every Monday and I will occasionally get letters back...It's been two weeks since the last one, but we mustn't dwell. I am also a terrific package maker and, in order to keep up my appearances as NOT being crazy, send out only one a month. This one was my November package.
I basically went down every aisle of the 99 cent store and picked up everything I thought two boys would appreciate. These things include: 2 lightsabers, a pirate gun, a slingshot, Belly Flops (mutilated jelly bellys), tons of candy, finger twister, Slim Jims, and the biggest cup o noodle I've ever seen. Yeah, I'm good. I am still considering and planning for the December package. Any and all comments/suggestions/stories are welcome =)
On a related note, I've added every stupid Facebook game/application and play them all religiously. If you are my Facebook friend, I apologize. Please realize that I am only trying to salvage my sanity and I do not expect you to join me or support me in my endeavors. Don't worry, I won't spam you with requests, I keep to myself unless you've joined of your own free will =)
