Jeff is down with the flu or stomach virus that tuck had last week - so i'm taking care of him (horrible patient) and then watching tuck too, cuz we don't want him to get it again. so needless to say, I'm quite tired! i am either getting the flu or having what i think might be sleeping pill side affects. i was taking ambien for a few weeks since i never get good sleep. but then i started feeling really queasy during the day (and this started at Artnest), feeling extremely weak and over all tired - which are all side affects. so i stopped taking it 2 days ago (and i was only taking 1/4 to 1/2 a pill since i am very sensitive to medicine. if i could have today,i would have slept all day. could be a combo of stress, the sleeping pills and pms. what fun we ladies have in our lives!!
so today at 4pm, east coast time was registration for Artnsoul, Portland, Oregon in Oct. well i was online at 4pm as instructed and started signing up for my classes, only to have the server crash again. this happened in May and it was very frustrating then. to have it happen today when i was feeling not 100%, kind of got me really frustrated. i signed up for the 2 classes i really wanted, only to go to pay and then get kicked off the site ("oops, this page is not available") and then not be able to get back on. by the time i got back on, my cart was empty and one of the classes said it was now "closed". it was so frustrating. you'd think that they'd be prepared (and they said they were........) maybe they don't realize that every 6 months, that many more people want to attend. i think they should double their estimate from now on and be ready for a gazillion art eager women to be online applying for their classes! so then registration was closed down and changed til tomorrow at 4pm at which time i should be almost arriving at work. i'll have to admit, i wasn't feeling patient and calm. i kept asking myself, why do i put myself through this? it's like ebay, i finally stopped doing ebay, because i don't want to get into any bidding wars - don't have the energy for that anymore! either sell it to me, or i am moving on! lol.
i leave with a few pics i took yesterday. one of my favorite tea pot, a shadow outside of a garden ornament and you can see me in the corner and my easter egg tree that i decorated using a branch i found outside after our wind storm.
