lol.. and that's no lie! My work room was such a disaster last night , I was tempted to take a picture to share...but it was just tooooo embarrassing! I have been working on cutting kit stuff for classes for days now and my room looks like it! Oh bother! Tons of little bitty bags of stuff and bits of paper, and scraps.. my machine and dies out in the middle of the room. Ribbons, pencils, scissors, water bottles, sleeping dogs, paper cutters, boxes, inks, buttons, clips, and a piece of left over pizza crust on a plate...it was a sorry site! Things were out of control! But I got alot done, and it's all put away and cleaned up today..so it feels good!
I have to tell you though,I thought of one of the sayings I used on a project last week , as I was working late last night. The saying was.." Never take yourself to seriously". Here's why...
I was so deep in putting together the kit's for these albums last night... it was 1am before I quit.
I was tired and I was trying to make sure I had all the right little pieces in each of the right bags for each of the 13 pages. ( not a smart thing to do when it's late and your tired) lol Anyway, I was checking and re-checking, counting and re-counting, and it just wasn't coming out right. I was getting really frustrated. It was really quiet in the house because Dan had stayed out at the cabin to fish and Jarad was at a friends for the night. Just the dogs and I and they were snoring on the floor.
I was so tired ,but determined to figure it out before going to bed! All of the sudden I heard this noise that was SO LOUD I swear my whole body just did some weird spaz. It was LOUD and Continuous! Both Dogs went running downstairs. AWAY from the fan that was sitting on the floor in my room... which I now realize is where the sound it coming from. I thought for a minute it was going to blow up..either that, or take flight! I didnt see it happen ,but
A LONG STRIP OF PAPER HAD FALLEN OFF THE EDGE OF THE TABLE AND HAD GOTTEN SUCKED INTO THE BACK OF THE FAN. You would not think this would make that loud of a noise , would you? WRONG! It was LOUD! ( What a dork.. I was literally talking out loud.. saying.."GEEEEZZ, that was loud!") ** please tell me you have done this when you were scared ,and that it's perfectly normal?lol
When you were a kid, did you ever clip playing cards onto the spokes of your bike tires with clothes pins... so they would make that loud clacking sound? Yeah... that's the sound... at 1 am.. when your home alone, half asleep, deep in thought!
Well, once I realized what it was, and how high I jumped, and how stupid I must have looked, I thought about .. that saying about "not taking yourself too seriously".. and yes...it was late , and I was a bit "punchy" but I laughed at what a nerd I must have looked like. Sorry you missed it! lol
Warning: Paper and Fans dont mix
