What I've been doing and some news!

Friday, November 5, 2010

I've been a tad MIA this week, in case you haven't noticed.  I didn't even have time to do a WIWW post.  I guess I'll have a super long one next week!

Steven and I spent all day Tuesday handing out literature outside the polls.  Our efforts did not go unnoticed - his dad won a seat on the school board!  I think he ended up with 56% of the votes and the next highest vote-getter only had 27%.  So yeah, I don't think we needed to work quite as hard as we did, but you never know how these things are going to go!  He practically knows everyone in the county, so name recognition alone should have gotten him elected.  Anywho, we are very proud of him!

We drove back up Wednesday morning, and took turns driving so we could both take naps (standing outside in the freezing cold for 13 hours sure does take a toll on your body!).  We got back to Ohio around 6:30 and I spent the next 2 hours cleaning the carpets and giving Maggie a bath.  Yeah.  Apparently, our kitties don't do so well when strangers try to feed them, and Maggie had diarrhea ev.er.y.where.  She's never so much as peed outside her litter box!  Our cat sitter tried to clean it up as best she could, but we brought the steam vac back up with us and it got the rest out of the carpet.  That was fun.  Then we unpacked and it was time for bed!  We had a whirlwind trip to NC, but it was fun. 

And now for my news...

I opened a shop!  You can find it here.  Right now it's pretty empty, but it was a spur-of-the-moment decision.  It seems like some ASU grads are interested in buying Old Mountain Jug Replicas.  I'm hoping to add more things in the future.  I don't think I'll get rich off of this endeavor, but it's a fun hobby.  I'll be sure to post if I add any new items.

P.S.  Did you notice my shop header?  Just a little preview of my new blog design coming in December... shhhh.
