I Want My Hour Back!

It occurred to me that Daylight Savings is sort of like buying on credit.  You get that glorious extra hour in the fall, but then spring arrives, and the bill comes due.  Did anyone else feel like a lead weight crawling out of bed this morning?

Speaking of buying on credit, HA!  My husband ordered the iMac for me yesterday.  It should arrive later this week.  I feel like Christmas is coming again!  I can’t wait to see if the World of the Mac is magnificent as everyone in the Mac Cult says it is.

There is a reason we’re moving to the Mac.  But it’s still sort of a secret.  I’m starting a little home-based business.  And I’m so excited about it I could spit.  (Truthfully, I have no desire to spit.  Those words just flowed off the fingertips.  Where does that expression come from, anyway?)

Any-Who.  I’ll give you a little hint.  The business combines my newfound love for Adobe Illustrator and my long-standing love for blogging.  And my ongoing mantra that every blogger should have an original blog design.

Okay, so that’s more than a little hint.  But did I mention that I’m just so excited??  And anyone who knows me knows that I can’t contain myself when I have a new obsession.  I just have to talk about it.  So there it is.

I’m off to the orthodontist this morning.  They messed up my molds the last time, and I have to have them remade.  Joy.  Did I mention my phobia of all things dental related, and that I tend to be a little claustrophobic when a big gob of Model Magic is shoved in my mouth and held in there until it hardens?  Yeah, not fun. 

But on the upside, I have recovered from the wisdom teeth removal, and nothing they do at the orthodontist today could possibly compare to the agony I experienced with that.

Okay, over and out!

P.S.  I’ve found a great exfoliant I want to share with you!  Check it out at Chic Critique.

  1. Are you getting braces? Just got mine off last week after 3 1/2 years. I told hubby that I missed them and he thought I was joking. But my 9 year old told me I look old without them. He said, “Like in your 50’s or something.”. So now do you see why I want them back?

  2. OOOOH! How exciting – another new venture!

    I’m thinking daylight savings time may actually work to my benefit this year, as perhaps it’ll mean B sleeps a little later and our days aren’t so long. Plus, it means Al won’t have to drive home from work in the dark, which will be nice. And maybe it’ll seem like he gets home earlier, since it’ll still be light and all? A girl can hope.

  3. Oh my stars, I’m so EXCITED for you. You’ll love your Mac. AND I must add that I’ve been needing to freshen up my blog. Hmmmm…I wonder who could help me with that?

  4. How fun! I know your designs will be great. You are going to love your Mac.

    I hate the time change. A lot. I didn’t stinkin’ go to sleep until 2 a.m. and now I’m a zombie.

  5. GO YOU! I know you’ll be awesome- I can’t wait to see what you reveal! My hubby will not touch a computer unless it is a Mac. And great minds think alike- you should see one of my recent post titles… : )


  6. i’ve finally won over the husband and now he wants a mac sooooooooooooo bad. (hee hee) i’m using the home-based business argument as well.
    i fluffy pink heart macs!!!!

  7. Sounds like your new business will be a lot of fun! I hear you with the daylight savings. That one measly hour sure play havoc with a person – I feel like I haven’t slept in days.

  8. when i got up this morning, it felt like a nice day to play hookie, and go back to sleep. Ugh. I desperately want my hour back!

    I’m excited for you getting a mac, and your new adventure in business!!

  9. I want the hour back too! I kept feeling like it was so much earlier than it was this morning. I still have no idea where the day has gone…

    Let us know how you like your Mac. My husband and I have been pondering one for me as well.

    Can’t wait to hear what your new venture is (wink, wink) but you give pretty good hints…

  10. New ventures are F-U-N!!! AND Illustrator is fun, photoshop is fun and anything creative is fun. heehee! My hubby designs a new blog header for me every month and I love it…keeps things fresh.

    Can’t wait to see how your new life unfolds.;-)
