Life Your Life

I'm posting this, in part, because I was carded tonight. That means that it is more than o.k. for me to love this music....


It speaks to me.

So. Whats been going on?

A lot of ancillary stuff. Important stuff - but supportive, not necessarily primary stuff. Not necessarily life changing or heart stopping...stuff. But it is my life. My Life. If only I looked as flippin' hot as Rihanna. She hot. And, yeah-baby this girl got carded tonight. Nice.

In other news, today I hit 100 sales on etsy. How cool is that? I became a seller just over a year ago. Since then I've made countless plush owls, convinced many folks to appreciate upcycling, learned how to write a press release, grasped a greater knowledge of marketing and color theory and became a front-page curating etsy artisan. Nice.

Life Your Life.

That is going to be my new mantra. I hope. Sometimes things don't turn out as you planned. Little did I know that I'd be facing another holiday season "Waiting For Referral". But I am. We are. Its rough. Sometimes the emotions are closer to the surface than others.

Right now I have Rihanna.

Even if you haven't heard from me, I think of you. Those of you in China. Those of you on the brinks - waiting for TA's and haunting Target for all the needed supplies. And, those of you/us that continue to wait. Mark time. Watch the years pass. And, attempt to put a handle upon the elusive Hope.

Big Love.

Hey I'm older than you & I like this song :)
Haven't been carded lately, though.
If I do, it's the old fat guys who are trying to flatter me. Ick.

Hope your holidays are good - even with this crazy wait!

Happiest of Holiday Wishes to you!

I'm right there with ya. Waiting ....but choosing to live my life. I'm not saying I haven't wasted time in the last 30 mths being stuck. Cuz I have. But I've turned a corner of accepting that "it is what it is".

Big love right back atcha!

I got carded a week or two ago, too. It happens now and then. My husband doesn't believe me because he's never with me when it happens.

I'm glad that you've found a wonderful creative outlet during your wait. I admire your creativity and resourcefulness.

Now, remind me. Isn't your LID in March of 06? If so, then I think next year should be just lovely for you!

My word verification is 'rapper'...

You little minx.

Good on ya for gettin' on with it, and the big sales number. If you ever feel motivated to do little plush kitties Maxine will get one from you. She loves them, although not the real thing...

And we think of you, too, and hope that the fire still burns and that the wait will end soon.
