There’s been a terrible development in my kitchen. The box of Dr. Pepper? It’s empty. I peered inside, felt around with my hand, picked it up and shook it. Confirmed. We are all out of Dr. Pepper.
I’m going to try to soldier on, and finish this post without my fizzy brown companion, but I must warn you, my prose may just fall flat. Please continue reading at your own risk.
No doubt at the moment may of you are thinking, “what’s the big deal? why doesn’t she just run out to the supermarket?” Oh, I would have done that hours ago, if not for my five-year-old. Last year at this time, we suspected he had seasonal allergies. Today, his constant sniffling and watery little bloodshot eyes confirm it. I let him stay home from school this morning, and looking at him now, I can’t really justify taking him out to the food store either. His appearance is made all the more pathetic by the band-aid he insists on wearing across the bottom of his nose. I don’t know how it really can be helpful, but it makes him feel better and provides comic relief for me – what more can you ask for? 😀
I have a few other errands I wish I could run, including a trip to the post office. I packed some orders this morning (I am totally kicking butt with order processing, packing, and shipping this week!) and missed the postal pickup by about 30 seconds, darn it. Mailman came early. I’ve got a nice little pile of packages here by the front door that will have to sit there until tomorrow now. Unless Neil can get home before the post office closes… (Reading this Neil? Think you can manage? The happiness of ten polymer clay addicts is in your hands. )
In other news…
it’s Flickr Friday, and these are my favorites. It’s too bad that some people “opt out” of being included in the mosaics. It always makes me sad to see big empty spaces in my favorites mosaics [not as sad as being out of Dr. Pepper, though. It’s a low-grade sadness 😉 ]. I can tell you that the current whitespace is supposed to contain a Drew University building and a patchwork tote bag. You can also click on the image or just go directly to my favorites stream and poke around to see for yourself.
We have 40-something participants in the sheet swap so far – very cool! I plan to close comments to that post sometime this evening, so if you want in, make sure you post a comment soon!
The color challenge for March/April is coming to a close, and I’ve decided to do the judging sometime this weekend. If you haven’t already posted your kelly green creations, you’ve got only a day or so to do it!
Happy weekend! I hope the weather will be pleasant where you are. We’re getting chilly rainy days, which don’t do much for me, but will probably make Allergy Boy more content…
