Yay Bunny

Latest project

I saw a picture of a clock in the book that inspired me to make this one. I've been trying to figure out how in the WORLD I was going to pull off building a frame for the clock when I found the perfect one in a local resale shop. It was $3 and this hideous dark wood with country blue and pictures of rusty barns. Ick. However, it was the perfect frame for my new clock!!!!!

Love it, love it, love it!!!!

(What you can't really tell in the photo is that while the bottom frame is right up against the glass, the top one is more like a shadow box. I plan to insert small lights to illuminate the face.

Need LESS sleep

Yes, you read that right! The fatigue has been unnaturally bad today. I went to sleep last night around midnight - not that bad for a Friday night. The kids woke me up today at around 10 for some reason I can't recall. They woke me back up at 11:45 because there was a "PARADE! MOM, THERE IS A PARADE OUTSIDE!!!!". Threw on a robe and sure enough, there was a high school band right across the street from us that stopped to play a few songs facing our house. It was one of many stops, I'm sure, as they walked along our neighborhood for homecoming weekend.

I made lunch for the boys, and within the next hour or two had fallen back to sleep. I didn't wake up until around 2:30 or 3 pm. Scott came home at 5 pm, we ate dinner at 6:30 and here it is 11 pm and I'm heading off to bed.

Let's see, that means I only had maybe 10 hours of AWAKE time in the last 24 hours and I'm heading to bed again. If I sleep to my usual 9 or so for a weekend, that will mean 10 hours of awake time over a 36 hour period. 26 hours asleep.

That is SOOOOOOOO not right.

(BTW - I LOVE the new LJ release that puts the list of tags right there in every post. Makes it so much easier to remember to tag posts, which I haven't done in a year or so)
