Projects coming out of my ears!

i have started 8 too many projects in the last 2 or 3 days. it's a little ridiculous actually. i have crocheted projects and knitted projects, i don't discriminate haha. i have hats, blankets, wrist warmers, more blankets etc all going on at the same time. some are for Christmas gifts so those i guess will have to take priority but after seeing this:

i'm having a REALLLLLY hard time not starting another one right now. if/when i ever make this, it's ALL MINE. i'm so selfish i just love love love love love love it. i'm getting the book with the square patterns from the library, that's the only thing stopping me from starting it right this minute. i guess after i make my own i can make some for gifts but we'll see how easy (hard?) it is. i love everything about this dang blanket, here is a link to the blog where i found it Lindamade.

i also have about 12 photo sessions coming up in the next 2-3 weeks, i wish you could see how excited i am for those...i don't like that it's becoming a chore. uggg oh well just this weekend i have 4. lame.

i'm getting back into this reading thing again. i don't think i've read a book in about a month. usually i read a book a week or so. lately i've realized i like listening to books on tape (ha tape, i mean ipod) instead that way i can edit photos or crochet/knit while i listen. but the book i got tuesday is the old fashioned reading, no headphones required. the book is about this girl who commits suicide and she makes these tapes where she lets people know the reasons why she killed herself. it's really interesting and sad i'm about halfway done.

this book i'm writing is still 61's been 61 pages for about a week now. i just haven't had the time to write in it. but i have a notebook i keep with me and write ideas down, i have about 4 handwritten pages with ideas. can you say back burner until after christmas?!

let's not talk about black friday. ok let's...michelle came over around 10 and we had every intention of staying awake, well around 12:30 we decided to sleep for half an hour...then an hour...then we decided not to go at all. well i have this thing called feeling guilty so i couldn't sleep anymore so i told michelle i was going to go but she could sleep if she wanted. she got up and we were in town by a little after 2. we went to the mall for Old Navy first...they decided not to open until 4 so we went to walmart and got some great deals and they let us check out at 4 instead of 5 :). then back to the mall where we waited outside target for a TV that was already sold out. then we went to fred meyers and i got myself a nice flat screen tv. woohoooo. we got home around 7 and i slept in until 1. it ended up being good. well this was unplanned and weird so i'll finish now. have a good December!

amanda, what's that book called? i read the back of it one time at work and i meant to check it out, but i forgot to and now i don't remember the title. i'm glad that you're reading it so that i can remember that i wanted to read it.
