I forgot to mention two more neat things:
First, yesterday was the "due date" for the first round in the Inspiration Team's Circle Journal. Here's a peek at my journal... of course, you'll have to wait to see the whole thing! ;) (Once I get it back I'll scan the pages so you can see it better...)
Second, I was browsing through Kristina Contes' gallery on 2peas
the other day and noticed she kept using quotes from this guy: Brian Andreas.
You should totally check him out. I love his stories- they are short, like one paragraph long, but they give you a glimpse into a whole world or situation. I love 'em. You can subscribe to them and get a daily story sent to you. A little perk to my days now.:)
(Here's an example of his work:)"Are we your real children? they said & I said we had our pick of all the children in the world & we took a few home to try out & though we tried to return them later, it was more trouble than it was worth, so we kept them & loved them & taught them all the stuff they'd need to know when it came time for them to choose, so they wouldn't make the same mistakes we did & later I heard one of them say they didn't know about being a parent if it was as risky as all that."
