I need to point out that, just because you make the apron, you won't necessarily look this sexy when preparing to paint walls. I know I won't!

"Well, it's kind of better. It's not good, but its like, if you had an uncle who went insane and married a crack whore who stole all his money and next marriage he married a woman who was as ugly as all get out and dumb as a brick but at least she wasn't destructive. It is so much better than it was that it seems good by comparison."
Wow, that is bad.

Paul is a vehicle man. He likes toys with wheels. He is also my most maternal child. Put those two together, and this is what you get.

Another return story. John bought an electric toothbrush from Kohl's the other day. When we got home and took it out of the package, it had someone's initials written on it, crust and grime in the seams and smelled of urine in the battery compartment. Gross! I can understand if they decided to return the item, but putting it out on the shelf was a little extreme. Let's hope someone made a mistake!

1 i make no guarantees that you will like what i make!
2 what i create will be just for you.
3 it will be done sometime this year.
4 you have no clue what it will be... it may be a story. it may be poetry or an article on properly cleaning your face before a masque. i may draw or paint something. i may bake something and mail it to you. who knows? not you, thats for sure.
5 i reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
the catch? oh the catch is that you must repost this on your blog
and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on their blog.
the first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did will win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me!!
oh and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!!
Why is it that women never feel they are good enough? I found myself doing this the other day. I was looking at a friend's blog, and instead of thinking, "Wow, that is great that she is able to do that!" I thought, "Geez, how come I am not doing exciting stuff like that?" What? That is ridiculous! We each do SO much! We need to look at our lives and be satisfied. We don't need to spend time bemoaning the fact that we don't paint, photograph, scrapbook, write, bake, clean, organize, decorate cakes, and a million and one other things all the time. We need to give ourselves credit for the fact that we are still alive and (semi)sane at the end of the day. We should rejoice in other's successes, but not feel that their success in any way means we are not doing enough ourselves. I try and remind myself that there is a time and season for all things. "But what about Pioneer Woman? She homeschools, photographs, writes, cooks yummy food and has time to do a detailed blog of it all!" Well ladies, I am not the Pioneer Woman. I am Tara. I have things I enjoy doing and things I wish I never had to do again and not enough time to get any of it done. And, if I don't accomplish as much in a day as the Pioneer Woman, it doesn't diminish me in the least. And it doesn't diminish you! Be grateful for what you have and do, and don't dwell on the glamour you think you miss!
