Working at The Daily Iowan on the University of Iowa campus is awesome because we don't publish during university breaks. This allows me three weeks off over the Xmas and New Year's holidays. Such a blessing during the first two weeks when I am busy last minute shopping, decorating and hosting parties, but now that the tree has been thrown out the front door, (I mean literally thrown out the front door. . . what a freaking mess. . .I may have all the needles vacuumed up by next Xmas) all the entertaining over and the decorations put away; everyone else is back to work and Heidi needs something to keep her out of trouble (I don't actually get in trouble. . .I just need something to give me a sense of accomplishment).
ENTER: My latest Craigslist find. Yeah baby. . .and only $50.00. I don't really have a good space for it, but it has such good bones I couldn't pass it up.
Check in tomorrow or Wednesday. . .I should have it done - - -GASP! But then what will I do the rest of the week?
probably paint something. or print on fabric - - stop.
