and yes, there will be a Sleepless in Seattle layout. I just don’t know how to pose for a “sleepless” photo yet :)
My parents and my grandma are coming from Norway to stay with us for Easter, and I just realized they are arriving newt Wednesday – gaah! We still have to get our house looking like someone actually lives here. We’re past the period where it looked like some sort of scrapbook-obsessed serial killer used it as a hideout, but we still need some plants scattered around the house and paintings on the wall to make it more homey. We’re so slooow. For example, we still haven’t sent out all our thank you cards. The wedding was last July… We had an excuse for a while since we went on a month-long honeymoon to India and then moved to the US, but now it’s just down to a) pure laziness and b) perfectionist-induced procrastination. This is the same thing that makes scrapbooking so hard for me sometimes, because I feel that everything has to be perfect. I feel that all the thank you cards have to have a beautiful, meaningful note on them, I don’t want to be one of those people who just write “thank you for the toaster we got for our wedding”. So I just keep waiting and waiting until the task seems impossible. But this is just getting ridiculous. And if I haven’t sent the cards before my parents come, I can expect some looks and sighs that are powerful enough to make me feel like I am 14 years old again… :)
Speaking of being 14, thanks to my insomnia I have found a channel that shows My So-Called Life every night! Score! I have to say, I cannot understand why we all loved Jordan Catalano so much (apart from the obvious superficial reasons :P); no amount of learning disabilities or problems at home is an excuse to act like such an ass.
Brian Krakow is adorable though.
Alright, enough babbling from me. I’ll just share the birthday card I made for JK. The card was made with my brand new Quickutz Silhouette! I wanted to make JK a yoga card because I gave him, well, yoga for his birthday. We started doing yoga in 2004, first Sivananda then Ashtanga, and get pretty serious about it when we moved to California. Then I got depressed and couldn’t even get out of bed in the morning, and I haven’t done yoga since. JK kept it up and has always wanted me to start up again, so now that we’ve finished the yoga room in our basement, I promised JK that I will practice with him once a week. He really loved this present because he knows how difficult it will be for me, both physically (those 55 extra pounds I’ve gained since my last yoga session will probably be in the way…) and mentally. Oh well, wish me luck!
