Lazy Day

I don't know if it was the meager snow covering on the ground and my car, or a case of the Mondays, or the tiny but irritating blister on my second toe, but I could not drag myself out of bed this morning when my alarm went off at 7:15. Instead, Cooper and I snuggled and dozed all through my morning Jazzercise class.

Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Note: It is slightly awkward to sit in a desk chair and type at a desk with a 40-lb. puggle on my lap. But Cooper will sit at my feet and make this soft squeaking whine that drives me CRAZY when he wants to snuggle. So eventually I give in and let him up on my lap. Or I grab the laptop and head for the sofa. It might seem ridiculous, but he is so irresistibly snuggly.

I was a crafty girl on Sunday. I spent much of the afternoon working on a Top Secret Handmade Gift for my friend Carol's upcoming baby shower. I am sewing it and I am afraid that the project could be one or two notches above my current skill set. For example, it requires button holes and I have never made a buttonhole. Anyway, I went as far as I could with the pattern and now it is on hold until I can convince my parents to come visit me so my mom can assist. I just don't want to screw this up and end up in tears. The good news is that it is looking pretty cute so far!

I also put together invitations for Monica's bachelorette weekend and ordered invitations for Carol's shower. I am much more confident with my paper skills than my fabric skills. It feels very satisfying to get these little projects taken care of. Now if I could just wrap up that big project I call the dissertation...

And speaking of, Monday morning is slipping away and I need to have something to show for it. Besides a rather uninspired blog entry.

Happy Birthday to David's g-ma Peggy.
