I was MIA yesterday – sorry! It was one hectic day. All the meetings that had been canceled over the week at school due to Fay were rescheduled for Friday. We still had some rain here, which sucked because (a) I’m over it and (b) I ended up running across campus with my umbrella in high heels (okay 1 inch heels but for me that’s high!) and still getting soaked. My poor beautiful shoes! I’m so seriously out of shape. It’s not even funny. One of my goals this weekend is to get back into the exercise routine, pathetically lame though it is, and if we can see some sun, I want to fire up some of my metal clay charms. They are beyond dry by now since I made them last week!

Enough of my complaining, though, how about some good blogosphere crafting?
