Sorry -- I skipped last week. I had a surreal 7 days of craziness.
1. Our guinea pig died. Doesn't sound like much, but we had George for 5 years and he was beloved.
2. Rob got laid off. This was not unexpected but somehow we were still surprised. They chose to lay him off on the last day of the month, so guess what... no medical benefits effective immediately. Bastards. (He doesn't feel that way... I'm less forgiving.)
3. Rob got a new job. Yep. Just like that. We seriously expected to spend up to a year finding another job. We both feel truly blessed that a new job found him/us so quickly.
That's it. I think it's a pretty good excuse to skip a blog post. I'm organized again now. I switched out our BOB boxes to make room for Mother's Day ideas. I love this time of year. Spring just seems to bring out the crafting best in all of us.
Enjoy.Best of the Blogosphere lists.
Remember these lovely little boxes don't show up in Google Reader, so if you can't see them, click on over to my site and they will magically appear. (When you see the boxes, there is a small "read more" in the bottom, right hand corner... click it and you can see the list with pictures as a web page!)
