I am really excited about one of my newest items: reusable coffee cup sleeves made of recycled felt. You can slip them on over your paper coffee cup - they're cute, keep your fingers cool (or warm), and reduce your waste. This is totally me - an item that reduces waste and is made from recycled plastic bottles. (I think my heart might just die from happiness.)
In other non-Etsy news...
Today started out awful. I woke up unreasonably grumpy (I was getting annoyed with Mike because he didn't have to get out bed as early as I did. Seriously, self?) My thumb is infected and swollen for some reason, my pants were too tight, I spilled toothpaste on my work shirt after I was already running late, and I'm thisclose to breaking up with winter for good. I was annoyed with my camera for not taking better pictures. I was annoyed with my house for cleaning itself. My roommate's teenage cousin died today and as I took her to get some comfort food (McDonalds...ew.), I was annoyed with myself for being so petty with all my annoyances.
The day ended with Mike reading to me the symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder. It was that kind of day. ("No, Mike, I am not experiencing thoughts of suicide over the weather. Blerg. I am just annoyed and sad and cold.")
In an effort to combat the bad day (and subsequent slippery slope to horrible break down due to a condition known as Cleveland Winter), I'm going to be listing five good things every day for the next month. Look over to the right for my little widget. (Sorry, Michelle Woo, I am not as cool as your Post It note-slash-pushpin, okay? And, yes, I am too lazy to link to your name. And yes, I am working on this positive attitude thing. Hrmph.)
Five Good Things.
1. Two-bite brownies.
2. Cable television on the treadmills.
3. Feeling strong enough to run farther than I did last week.
4. Sore muscles from yesterday's weight lifting.
5. Adobe Creative Suite 4 and Photobooth. Love.
