What Was I thinking?
So, I've had a lot of these moments today... moments where you just stand back and think "WHAT THE HECK?" So... for your reading pleasure, my "What Was I Thinking List"

1 - I decided to make a billion little paper stars for my friend that's getting married. I saw them on Depsonq Path and he talked about how each star represented something to you. Usually a wish or a dream. They are COOL little things and I thought it would be fun to fill up a gift bag with these awesome little stars and give them to my friend and her new hubby with a little note about making their dreams come true. Awww, so sweet, right? Yeah. Except I didn't expect my hands to cramp up. Also, I didn't take into account that these things are about 1/2 to 3/4 an inch, so filling a bag would take a year or two. Since the wedding is on Saturday, we are not filling the bag. We are just going to put a few into the mixing bowl that I got her...kind of like packing peanuts, except cuter. Only a few hundred more to go by Friday... sigh... the picture doesn't even show half of what we've already done... and yes - we made them! Crazy, eh?

2 - I just drank .5 L (1PT. 0.9 FL OZ) of water. It's 11:50 p.m. Now I'm gonna have to pee in the middle of the night.

3 - Hubby and Red both needed new shoes. So, instead of doing the smart thing and only sending Hubby and Red, I drug the whole family out to Target tonight. Screaming, crying, begging and pleading ensued and that was just from me. The kids were unfortunately 10 times worse. You know the people that you see in the stores and think "Why do they come out in public?" Yeah. That was us. But, on a very happy Target note... I got these CUTE shoes for $4.98 WAHOO!! On the other hand, I don't do well when my shoes have a big heel. And these aren't huge, but I'm a klutz. Big time. I usually fall and mutilate my feet. Hmmm... well, they are darn cute. So, I think they are worth the risk!

4 - The last thing on my "what was I thinking" list... why did I start writing this so late? Now I'm gonna have to proof read it 100 times (remember, I'm a tad obsessive about that). Well, this was supposed to be a Wednesday post, but it's 12:08... so, it is now my Thursday post :) Well, gotta go... literally...
