- you will not toss and turn
- you will not be sore in the morning
- most likely, you will end up on your back in the morning, no matter which way you like to sleep
- when the other person in bed moves, you cannot feel them move
- and oh, the sleep you will get...so much more restful!
So here is what sums up Night #1 in our new foam mattress:
I tossed and turned, even though it is extremely hard to do so...there are no springs you know, so nothing bounces you! I was on my back a lot of the night, at least every time I woke up I found myself there. I am somewhat sore- back and shoulder. One thing is for sure, I didn't feel my hubby moving around too much, and he mentioned that he did quite a bit of moving this morning.
Another thing we were told was to give it a good 2 weeks. And I will do just that!
Now on to my Etsy shop: Again I am just shocked! I got my 6 new hearts...got another sale. Unbelievable! I am pretty excited though! Yay for sales! Now I am off to wash sheets.

It's hot and muggy, but that's to be expected in the middle of July. Maybe I lost a pound or two going up and down that ladder and sweating all the way!
No new cards coming as of yet. I have a couple made, just have no gumption to take photos of them.

* hamburger casserole
* 1 and a half tator tot casseroles
* 2 pounds of taco meat
* baked spaghetti
* 3 pounds of sausage for pizza
* 8 pounds (at least) of browned hamburger
That is all that I made yesterday after my DH came in the house at 7:45 saying, "Who left the door open to the freezer?"
At least I have meals for a long time.
The ice cream stuff all went into the trash, there are some meals that I will be having in the next day or 2. The rest seems ok. We have a whole drawer full of hamburger that really did well keeping themselves cold. The steaks are all in the back of the freezer so they were ok.
Another thing to be thankful for...I'm not pregnant! There would be no way that I would have been able to handle all that raw meat so early in the morning if I was!! ;)

I was reading in another blog (clearpink) yesterday about another site that someone else sells their handmade items on. The name of the site is Trendy Shoppes. I just might have to take a good look at that site also.

Then I had to make cards for a couple anniversaries and birthdays. That made me look at the paper stash and remember what cool papers I actually had! I made a few and was pretty excited about it. But then I hit a wall again.
Where is my creativity? I need to find it again. Maybe I should go shopping or something.
What I'd really like is a massage...;)
My Etsy shop is suffering because of it.

I love to play in the dirt and grow flowers, and with that comes the weeds. Since we were gone this past week, the weeds decided to choke out the flowers! Besides that, we had this mysterious smell in our basement that we couldn't figure out. I did get the sleeping bags washed, and all of the towels, the whites are washed, but I have to admit that they are still in the dryer. Waiting. I do not look forward to folding them.
The smell thing is figured out. It seems as though we must have gotten too much rain lately, and in our storage room in the basement (which has a cement floor) there is some water. The thing is, we didn't see it at first because there is an old piece of carpet laying in there. That was the stench. Now for cleaning that out and dying up the place again...dehumidifier running 24/7.
As for Etsy...well, that has taken a back seat in the last few days. I feel as if I don't have enough time to run it well, although I did list another card today. I am hoping to "muddle" for a couple more weeks, and then take it over again with zeal. I love Etsy, and I love selling my cards there, and so there is no way I am giving that up! ;) I also love summer, and there are so many things that come along with that.
I will have to share with you my newest feedback! I am very excited for my Mom, who sold the second Doll sweater, and this customer loves it! Here is what she wrote:
Fantastic! Thanks so much. I have NEVER seen a better quality doll sweater. Julie doll is loving it.
Isn't that just the nicest feedback?! It just made my day...even though the praise isn't even for me! Thanks mom! ;)
