Random Ramblings to start 2009

I'm becoming obsessed with Etsy. I decided a few months ago that I was going to seriously look into opening an Etsy shop and started my research. The more I research the more I realize how much there is to learn and how much work I have ahead of me. Opening a shop is easy but it's all the steps to making it a successful shop that has my head spinning. It's interesting and I'm having a great time but some days (like today) I just want to bury my head into the sand.

I'm becoming a blog addict. I have about 15 - 20 blogs now that I follow. I check them everyday usually while I eat my breakfast. I learn what others are up to, I find out about new and interesting products, the list goes on. The problem is the list of blogs I read goes on and on too. I'm going to have to start weeding out some of them or start eating a bigger breakfast.

I have Hand, Foot and Mouth desease. No seriously, I'm not joking. I know, you're thinking, "no, only cows get that", but as it turns out there is a human version and lucky me has it. Actually it's very much like a cold in the way it's caught and how it feels (sore throat, cough, fever, chills, etc.). The thing is I now have little red spots appearing on my hands and toes. Nice eh? They actually only hurt with pressure so my feet are feeling it more than my hands. The doc says it should just go away....oh goodie!

We're going to Mexico in 10 days....yikes! This will be our fourth trip to the Mayan Riviera. I love it there! It's beautiful. I'm rather excited and also not loving the fact that we're leaving Aden with the grandparents. I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about leaving my little boy for a week. I know he'll be totally fine but I'm not sure I'll be.

I want this clock. I love it. I wish I had found it before Christmas so it would have magically appeared under the tree. At anyrate...the catch is I want this clock because it would look so good in my cream and white kitchen......the problem being I don't have a cream and white kitchen....yet. I need to paint. Trouble is I haven't choosen an actual colour therefore I don't have the paint which makes it awfully hard to have a cream and white kitchen. Stay tuned.

Alright I'm done with my Random Ramblings....for now!

Okay, Jarom caught Hand, foot and mouth from preschool a couple of years ago. It was horrible. I feel so bad for you. But it will just go away.

I love etsy also. Reading blogs can be super addicting. Sorry about HFM my daughter had a mild case several years ago. I hope your better.

Thanks ladies. I am doing much better. The little red spots started going away the day after I went to the doctor. Thank goodness! I think I was over most of it by the time I went to see the doctor but since I'd never had it before I had no idea. Yeash! What fun.
