If I were a bear, and Hobby Lobby were the woods...

What IS it about places with large amounts of paper? Craft stores, book stores, libraries?

I've been spending too much time (and money) at craft stores lately. My daughter's birthday party is tonight, and I've gone all crafty on her ass. I made cute personalized t-shirts as party favors, rather than the usual bags of crap. I made her cake myself, and have all sorts of fun activities planned. Did I mention that I have TWELVE seven year-olds sleeping at my house tonight? Yeah.

My husband seems to think I'm going all out because I feel guilty. Her real birthday is next weekend and I will be out of town for my new job. He is wrong. I think doing all this stuff is fun! I've been having a blast making the shirts, cake and planning other activities. Sadly, it's my only creative outlet right now. I'll take what I can get.

I have to go to New York for 10 days for training. Argh. I lucked out, though. Since one of my best friends lives in Conneticut, she is going to rescue me over the weekend and let me third wheel with her and her husband to a Fountains of Wayne concert. Yeah! I'm excited to see my friend AND get out of the hotel! I'll be MIA for longer than usual with my travels, but I'll holler and let you know how it goes!
