I have been absent and I don't think it's an "excused absence"

Life is just too weird right now and I don't have much to talk about otherwise. I feel I must check in every now and then since people worry about me if I don't.

I am fine...

i'm singing Gloria Gainer a lot, but sort of wish there was some amusing back up group of drag queens to keep me laughing while I sing it. This is one of those things that I know what I'm talking about even if anyone else just reads this and thinks I'm completely nuts.

My weight loss has plateau-ed for a while. I have not been in the mood to go to the gym this week....was out of town before ankle hurts....and I want to eat chocolate chip cookies...... I haven't really gained weight (maybe a lb) but I need to kick it into gear again before we get too close to Thanksgiving.

And on that note....I am going to Disney World (can you believe it?) for the week of Thanksgiving with my husband, kids, mother-in-law and sister in law. This could be a very blog inspiring week. We'll see.

The clothesline pattern needs tweaking after teaching it in MI I found some confusing things that need to be fixed before officially putting it on the web as "ta-da" buy the kit!

I'm off to work on those tweaks. :)

I'm checking in to squelch any rumors that I have been abducted by aliens or any other such gossip. I'm healthy and mostly happy...just having a roller coaster of a fall. No explanations about crazy personal stuff here...just the facts about why my beadmaking journal is so empty beadmaking.

I did teach classes in Michigan this last week and had much fun. I introduced the new project.....duh duh duh...... (big trumpet-y music) THE CLOTHES LINE!

It is ready ready ready (other than fixing a few mistakes we found in class) for advertising!!!!

I'm hoping to have it online for PURCHASE and 2 weeks!!! Just in time for your christmas shopping....snicker snicker.

Need to buy lots of seed beads....this one requires lots more of certain colors of I need to re-stock.

Ok...that's it for now other than the counting song.....

25 25 25 25 lets sing a song of 25!!!!!!!! How many is 25?

2 1/2 sizes!

20 20 20 20 let's sing a song of many is 20? (my favorite song from Sesame Street)

20 pounds lost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yet no jeans fit me. :(

Too big/ too small....I feel like Goldilocks. :) Only without the blonde hair, the tiny figure, the storybook life, the bear neighbors....ok, I don't feel like Goldilocks after all.

Making kits kits kits. Actually been doing WORK (real Sylvie work not housework) all week!!!!

Am 1/2 way moved into my new studio. My beads are more organized than they have EVER been and I'm still working on getting MORE organized. Of course, I haven't made any glass beads in FOREVER (you can go back and look through the archives if you really need to know how long...I really can't remember)

I don't really miss making beads though. Hmmmmmmmmm.

I like it, but I don't miss it. I did miss beading though..... hmmmmmmmmmm.

Things to ponder in my new khaki studio.

Off to Michigan to teach next week. gainfully employed again!

20 20 20 20....let's sing that song again! :)

starbucks today - in a moment of desparation venti 2% mocha light on the chocolate no whip (I'm compromising)

music - Classic Rock and Court TV (that's not music, but it's what's on in the studio today...waiting for the verdict.....)

back to work...
