Busy, But Boring

I'm playing a little bit of catch up right now. I realize that my blogging kind of ebbs and flows according to what's going on in my life, but I guess that's only natural. Things have been busy for the past month, but with nothing too terribly exciting. With Scott having been home on worker's comp and my renewed commitment to working out, it seems I haven't had time for much else so I feel like I haven't had much exciting news to share. So here are a few little recent tidbits:

This past week was Scott's birthday and we took up Disney's come for free on your birthday deal and celebrated with Scott's parents in Epcot. He had never been, so we decided to eat our way around the world for his special day.

He's doing better, too. His shoulder still hurts now and again, but the doctor cleared him to return to work on light duty starting this week and his physical therapy will probably continue for another couple months.

I recently hit the 40 sale milestone in my Etsy shop! Thank you so much to all of my wonderful customers that helped get me there.

I also recently surpassed 500 Hearts on Etsy: I'm now at a whopping 515! Thank you to all of you heart givers out there, too.

Back in the beginning of April, I thanked all of the folk who used me as their Artfire referral, thus granting me the opportunity to earn a Free Ride for Life and never ever have to pay any fees of any kind. Artfire doesn't actually tell you who used you as a referral, so I was kind of going by memory with those thanks and mistakenly left out Kathy from Gypsy Goods. Oops. Sorry, Kathy and thanks for letting me know!

Lastly, Scott and I are trying to think of a fun weekend get away for this summer. I love the beach and he loves to keep busy. We're also on a bit of a budget. Any ideas?

Oh, I love the international part of Epcot. Fun! (definitely not boring) Congrats on the Etsy milestones, too.

I'm not sure what constitutes "budget" for you but in the off season some beach cottages can be had at fantastic prices. We used to go to Corolla, NC. There's a lot to do there both in a history Wright Brothers flew here sort of way and a hang gliding water skiing ocean kayaking (my fave) sort of way. Not sure how long a drive that'd be for you.

Well done reaching over 500 hearts (golly I haven't looked for ages!!)

If you work out much more you will disappear - you look THIN to me girl!!

I envy you EPCOT - I definitely want to visit! Glad Scott had a good day - and hope all healing goes well.

Deanna, I love the NC idea. We were actually talking about Charleston at one point. I don't think it's going to happen this summer, though. We might do a long weekend in St. Augustine which is only a few hour drive from where we live, but even that seems unlikely at this point. There have been layoffs at work and the threat of more, so with not knowing what's about it happen... ya know?

Dresser: Thank you!

Thanks, Marjorie! I do want to lose a few more pounds, but more than that I've got some more firming that I'd like to happen. Regardless, I'm feeling healthier and stronger and that's what's important.
