Morning, Michelle! How's your FIL?

We have a little middle school student here this morning. Some kind of class project, probably a home schooler. She's cute. From Detroit. I can't believe they drove all the way here this morning to video what we do here.

Oh, haha, she just said she's on a mission to win the science fair.

It's good to have goals.

I searched back and found the post about S and T. Good for S to be honest. It hurts much less that way. Hard now but better in the long run.

David just had a talk with the girl he was "dating". She is so much younger than him and he was straightforward that he didn't want to date for 5 years and have her decide that they had no future together. He is willing to wait, if she saw marriage in their future, but knew that was a lot to expect from an 18-year old. So, they are going to be friends, possibly hang out now and then, but they are not going to pursue a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship.

I am constantly impressed with the maturity of David. He recognizes and thinks through things that I don't think I would even have had on my radar at his age (if I weren't already married with two children, that is!)

Hi, Joyce! Hi, Lisa!

FIL is doing very well, Joyce. Thanks for asking. He finished radiation yesterday (they gave him a little certificate and everything!) He is getting around so much better. He's often weak and tired but that is not unusual. I keep reminding him that it's from the radiation and he'll be amazed at how much better he'll feel in a few weeks. Then my ditzy MIL will say something like "Well, we don't know how much is from the radiation and how much is from the Parkinsons." Oy...

Good Morning!

Emma, I love Sarah's Grumpy! Have a great Christmas together!

Michelle, I'm glad to hear FIL is doing well. And good for David. Smart guy.

Joyce, your visitor sounds adorable!

Yvonne, I hope Em is better soon.

Yes, we had a great time. We had an appt nearby. The zoo was impromptu. I am really glad we went.

Laura, that sounds like fun. Those unplanned activities sometimes turn out to be better than the ones that you invest hours planning!

Okay, I need to focus! I'm going to minimize this window and see if I can be good.

Good morning!

Yay for FIL finishing radiation, Michelle.

It was a year ago today that David's father died. I can't believe it's been a year already. I sent David an email telling him I was thinking of him today and that I hope he's all right. Not expecting a reply, but I felt compelled to send it anyway.

Wow... it doesn't seem possible that that was a year ago! It was the right thing to do, sending David an email. You're a very good person, Cathy.

Em is a mess, but good meds will get her better. She is back at home, on the couch.

Man, those elves are going to be talking to their union reps!

I am in a funk today. Not an emotional funk, a work funk. Everything I need to do is time- and equipment-consuming. I have three things waiting for my one printer. My other printer is d-y-i-n-g.... (and won't do some of the projects anyways.) I bought a new one to replace it but don't feel like installing it today. So, I guess it's my own stupid fault. Kind of.

On the up side, it gives me a few moments to chat!

Color me shocked. David replied to my email. He said that he's been thinking about me, too, and that he almost wrote to me yesterday during a spell of melancholy, but he didn't know what to say. I wrote back and told him that sometimes just saying hi is okay. And told him that he might get the occasional link to a cute animal video from me. Heh.

Say you wanted to buy a cutter and there were two cutters available. One is grey and orange and the other is grey and black. THEY ARE THE SAME CUTTER, just different colors. Would you pay more for one over the other?

Heck no, I wouldn't pay more if the only difference is the color.

I understand that demos want to get the product that they sell. But I don't get why the average crafter would be debating long and hard about it. Ha! Unless they have a severe aversion to orange.

Lorien. I understand your question... I have an orange one, and can only entertain the thought of a pretty black/gray one when mine dies
and even then... another orange with a 40% off coupon might be too tempting
