Forgetting the paper

Wednesday at work I did a little bit of copic coloring but didn't get that far with it. See look at my amazing coloring skills. LoL! Ok I know they aren't really but it's pretty good for me. As you can see I'm not so good at the blending, choosing colors or even staying in the lines. I'll have to continue to work on those as I practice more. I'm sure I'll improve.... Well actually probably not. I wasn't so good as a child either. So I know the big questions on every one's mind is: What did I do last night? Since I know you are all dying to know. Let me tell you! A whole lot of crafty nothing!! Instead Jack and I had our usual Thursday date night, hitting a local watering hole for a dart tournament. We didn't win but had some fun. It's really hard to always be the adult, the responsible, the designated driver. I'm young!! I want to be able to cut loose sometimes and have a glass of wine or a cocktail. But if I'm driving I won't even have 1 drink that night. It's just not worth it no matter what anyone tries to tell me! There have been enough driving infractions in my household to last 5 lifetimes or more. So I sip on my orange juice and sprite and take mental notes of all the "adults" acting ridiculous and think of ways to bring up their bad behaviors in future conversations. Muahahahaha!

Back tracking to Wednesday night I worked on finishing the cricut cuts for my friend over on MSR then I started working on some Christmas cards. I didn't take any pictures of them yet. I'm not sure that I even like them or will stick with them but I'll keep playing with them. Thursday I brought in the pens and stamps again so that I could try to do a little more practice. Guess what I did the dum dum that I am? I forgot to bring paper. Yep so my pens sat idle all day long. What did I do? Absolutely nothing! Ok so I surfed the web and I chatted over at MSR but that was about it. I even attempted to blog but nothing would come out. So today is Friday once again I'm working but the bright side of today is I remembered the paper!! I have some students coming in at 10am to pick up their graduation packets so that will be some excitement in a few minutes. I will have to pause this blog entry to go instruct them on their next steps of future career. I am really hoping for a miracle today through Monday morning. I'm hoping we get a RUSH of registrations. We need them very badly. Although I like to have this down time where I can do pretty much as I please, as long as I'm here at the school. I know in my heart registrations need to pick up or we may have to close the doors. Yikes! I don't know what I would do.... Going back to a "regular" job would not be something I would want to do. I'll be right back. I have to open the doors to let some of the students in.
Whew! I'm back. That was a long winded speech I just gave. I gotta cut back my talking on the next one. With the graduation packets given out now all I have to do is sit here till 430. I have my copics to practice and I also have a audio book. I know what your all thinking, AUDIO BOOK??? My grandma listens to audio books! hee hee hee! I love them. I don't have time to sit and read a book I have way too much other stuff going on and have to be able to multi-task. Can you read and cut out images or make a card while reading? Well I can listen and do those things so it's a win-win situation for me. Right now I'm in the middle of The Murder of King Tut by James Patterson. It's not his usual style of book but a good story all the same. Well I think this will just about wrap up this entry. I'm out of things to blather on about and I'm sure if your still reading this (THANK YOU!!!!) and I'm sure your tired of reading.
More Later
