It's me! I just might have had the world's longest blog vacation in the history of blogging. Maybe. The reason being is that I have had zero motivation to be creative. If you google motivation it tells you that it is a noun meaning" the general desire or willingness of someone to do something". A few synonyms for motivation is enthusiasm, drive, ambition. Yep, I was definitely not motivated.
I am happy to report that the creative bug is returning. I have spent some time in my craft room the past couple of weeks and I actually made some cards. I haven't photographed any of them yet to share, but I'll get that done soon.
So in the mean time, I thought I would share some things that I have done during my blog vacation.
I have become a pro at binge watching tv shows that are now off the air. I watched all six seasons of Parenthood. I chose that one because during Whitney and my first Warner Brothers studio tour, we got to go through some of the set. We walked through the "Braverman family home" and learned many of the "trade secrets". So it was really fun to watch the show and I totally understood why it lasted for six seasons. Then I binged out on seven seasons of The Gilmore Girls, also filmed on the Warner Brothers lot. Here is where the problem comes in. I get way to attached to the characters. It is as if I know them personally, as if they are my friends and neighbors. I become sad 10 minutes in to the first show of the last season and by the time the last episode ends - I am in full blown state of depression. It's as if I moved away for Star Falls (the town where Lorilai and Rory live) and left all of my friends behind. Yes, I know that I can go back for a visit, by way of Netflix, but it just isn't the same once you leave home. See, this is why I should not binge watch....anything.
This is my sweet little Sophie and she gave me quite the scare in December. We were on our way out to get in the car for a quick little follow up at the vet and she totally passed out. I got her to the vet and they sent us right on to Med Vet. They discovered that Sophie is in the early stages of heart failure. Luckily, she qualified for a study that was being done and lasted for five months. The meds have helped her and she will always be on them. And hopefully, she will be with me and Gracie for quite a while longer. This picture is when we left our last study appointment. Seriously, isn't she cute?
Oh, and this happened! A coworker got tickets for the Ellen show and invited Whitney and me to go with her and her son. So we made a really quick trip to LA and it was such a fun experience. Thanks Julie!
Notice the name of the horse race? Yep, it was named for me. One of my Christmas gifts from Whit and Greg was a day of horse racing and one of the races would be named for me. So, one Saturday in May we headed to the race track with some friends. This was so fun. When it is time for your race, they take you and your group down to the winner's circle area to watch the race. They give you lots of fun facts about the horses and riders. And when the race is over, you go in to the winner's circle and have your picture taken with the winning jockey. Such a fun day.
Greg and Whitney has spent the summer having a home built and will be moving in a few days. It is lovely home and I'll share a pic or two when they give me the okay to do so. I'm so happy for them.
And there you have it, what Pam did during her blog vacation.
I hope that things have been good with you.
I'll see you back here soon with some actual stamped creations.
Have a super day!
