Staying on top of things and staying happy. Well . . . actually I think I'm on top of things, but I'm not sure. Went to Wild & Wooly last night and my shawl is getting way too close to done. I've been loving these yarns and the simplicity of the project that lets me drink wine, yak, and knit all at the same time.
I'm happy this morning that Morning Joe is on MSNBC and Charles, Chris and Lew from Imus are with him. I so miss Imus in the Morning and this is my favorite substitue that they've come up with.
My friend Sara got a cool call that she's getting me in on. WMUR invited her to watch the democratic presidential debates at the studio on Sunday and participate in something called "dial testing." no idea what that means except I think we'll be pushing some buttons to respond to remarks made. Anyway, she asked if she could bring me and they said yes! When I bailed on the blogging competition, I'd given up on getting anywhere near the site.
Last night I got a call from the Hillary Clinton campaign. The caller noted that it was still early, but wanted to know if I'd decided who I was supporting. I think she choked a bit when I said I was supporting Sen Clinton and that,yes, I'd be glad to work in the Dover office some. (to be honest, I answered the phone reluctantly and was about ready to cut her off before I found out who she was calling for--i was in the middle of emailing Sharyn and ordering contact lenes and I needed to walk out of the house in 5 mins to pick up Sara for knit night and I wanted to make sure Joshua got his trombone out of the case before I left). This caller then invited me to watch the debate at a restaurant on Sunday. Things are just getting rolling. The only event that might throw a monkey wrench in my support for Clinton would be if Gore entered the race.
I'm writing a book called "Get It Scrapped!" for Memory Makers and got lots of great work done yesterday ---- via my contibutors: Sharyn Tormanen, Kim Kesti, and Betsy Veldman. Their pages are mostly multi-photo, full of meaningful journaling, and --I think--they are the kind of layouts many everyday scrappers really want to have in their albums. Seeing it all come together and seeing the layouts sitting next to each other is so satisfying. But, the best part of the work yesterday was the generosity and professionalism of these women. They are all maxed out with work and family and have still made it a priority to create really excellent pages for this book. Thanks, Sharyn, Kim and Betsy.
Yet another good part about yesterday was that Hillary Heidelberg called me. She has been a tremendous help, support, source of good humor and friendship to me since I got to know her in November. She is one generous, smart and funny woman. Thanks, Hillary.
OK, off for coffee and Sunshine Math!
