Oh my, long time!

So, I suppose I've gone M.I.A. yet again! Nobody ever contacted me to claim my last giveaway, either! This is the second time I've held one where the winner did not claim their prize!

The new news is that I recently costumed a show (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and felt pretty good about the outcome. Most of the costumes I didn't have to make myself, but there were a couple pieces that I actually did do. I am also throwing together a few small costume pieces for a summer youth musical called "How To Eat Like A Child" that my husband and I are directing. Most of the kids will just be wearing clothes from home (There are over 40 children, so thank goodness for a simple costumed show!) but there is a part as a lion and as a dog, so naturally I made a lion mane and am working on some dog ears. I'll see what I can whip up for pictures, but our main computer crashed recently and the one I've been working on does not have a card reader! C'est la vie! I could really use a newer and better laptop. Maybe I'll get one in a few months... On that note:

I'm starting school in September, for the first time since graduating High School six years ago! It's an exciting thing for me! I will be taking Math, Writing, Speech, and Business. I am not sure yet exactly where I will go with it, but I've gotta start somewhere and find my purpose!

And, as if I wasn't already throwing enough new stuff at you all, I just started a juice fast/cleanse yesterday. My husband was skeptical when I first told him I wanted to do it. He kept giving me funny looks because I am the pickiest person we know here, and I typically do not like many fruits or veggies. So, he was sure I'd take a drink of the first juice and wimp out! Well, he told me last night that after he saw me finish my first juice (which was essentially alright, but had a tad bit of a dirt flavor to it) he knew I could do it better than he had thought I would. So, day one (and a miraculous 5lbs!) is down and I'm on day two. Feeling pretty healthy and energetic so far, but from what I have been able to gather the worst days will be day 3 and 4. I'll try to update!
