My last blog was to placate family and friends, or to be more embarrassingly pointed: Jillie-bean Jackson. She was my inspiration and consequently my reason for wanting to write again. See Miss Jill is an excellent blogger, and has kept everyone in the blogasphere abreast of her growing and giggling daughter. Who is absolutely B-E-A-UTIFUL! (Cookies to anyone who gets that quote) I'd blog a lot to if I had a daughter like Lanie (soonish Amber, soonish) but since I don't I need to find other reasons to blog.

Short of creating a new world my family doesn't know I live in, there isn't much to say that I haven't already. Clouds reign of terror is almost complete. Dagger has successfully found out how many "licks" it takes to get to the center of a tennis ball, Gus has reached a new level of socialism, and the bonsai died. The mini blueberry tree however is thriving and soon we will be able to make our very own blueberry-topia.

My last blog pretty much told you all about my recent misdoings, and Grant would probably hide my chocolate milk if I laid my creatively licensed hands on his days activities. What else... hmm... what else. OH! Hey did you know the sky is not really blue? Yes? Dang.

Oh I got it, you'll like this one, this ones going to rock your socks. Or at least the one you're wearing.

I tell ya, I don't care what you're doing to them stars are evil.

Neat ain't it? Grant designed and made those cabinets! You'll never guess what kind of trickery he used, or the secrets they hold.

The entertainment center head on. It's a piece of art isn't it? It's even functional to the houses structure!!

Eventually when the office upstairs is needed for something far more important, the family computer will relocate here. If you can't tell Grant is a fan of storage space, and promised me he'd make it look good. Boy did he ever. Right now it houses blankets and games, though has the versatility/ability to hold anything from files to a mini fridge. (I told you they had secrets)

I see you still have your sock(s).. oh well can't say I didn't try. I mean we think it's truly awesomeness on earth, and really, we are the only ones that matter. So you can keep your holy socks, I've got an anime to watch with the lights dimmed and a bowl of popcorn.

Blogger Fail.

As I'm sure you've all noticed, I haven't updated my blog in quite a long time. Honestly I've been purposefully ignoring it, I don't know how many watch my blog or even care about it, sooo it steadily moved down the list of important/fun things to do.

For my own reasons I've been keeping so busy that I hardly remember what down time feels like. Grant is usually busy, so his schedule hasn't changed much.

Since December I've been going to play practice Tuesdays and Saturday mornings for our Stake Melodrama. It's called the Veggie Villain and it's hilarious! I play the Villianess Lily Liverd, and apparently I was born to play the role, not so sure how I like that. Anyway that will be in April if anyone wants to come see, I'll get you dates if your interested.

Second on my list is Voice lessons, I have also been taking those since November? Ya November I think.. oh well. Its been fun every Thursday I drive out to Farmington and give my voice a good work out, and it's actually getting better :D Hurray for patient Sister-inlaws!!!

Nextly I've finished the first part of my second edit for my novel. I've been working on 10 pages a day and hopefully I'll be done with the edit before march, that's my goal. This hasn't really taken up much time because I normally do it while watching a movie (anime) or something, so it's like killing two hobbies with one stone!!

Now this is new to my ever-growing list of hobbies, but I've wanted to do this for a while. K ladies, don't you LOVE acrylic nails? so smooth and shiny and pretty and make back scratches feel like heaven? But they cost SO much money and you have to go back and refill them every 2 weeks or so.. pain in the fanny. But I like them so much, and my mom can tell you I've had a fondness for long nails since I was very little. So I did what any normal hobby addict would do. I bought myself a kit and have taught myself to do my own nails. So far only my left hand has had them, but they look freaking AWESOME!! They don't all look the same, each are a little different style, but thats on purpose... yup Totally on purpose.. :D

So between play practice, voice practice, nail practice, editing, keeping up my house and convincing my hubby that none of these are a punishment in anyway. I have had little time to play on the computer, and when I have been on the comp, it's to check email, check DeviantArt, check a few of my webcomics, and thats it. Alright, I've gotten on to facebook a few times, but really those who watch/care know I'm hardly ever on there.

Now on to Lastly. If you don't know I have hobbies, then you don't know me (I'm Amber btw) I have a LOT of hobbies, I can and will do anything I want. All of this sounds self serving, da? And you'd be right, it is, but not anymore! As of next wednesday I will be corrupting a Little to my insane hobby addictions. Every middle of the week I will work my goal of taking over the world, you didn't know I had that goal huh? Its always the quiet ones you least suspect.

Nah, I'm kidding, actually I've agreed to teach my cousin Elle my skills lol. She wants to learn to sew and play with clay and decorate cakes, and make jewelry. Isn't that great? I'll finally get someone to do my nails on my right hand! (that last one was false, unless she really wants to learn, who am I to say no?) I'm very excited to do this, and can't wait to start. I have informed my Aunt that I don't do things by the book, and she's still willing to send her daughter to me for an hour every week... tee hee..

SO that be me, Amber, however I can see Grant writing this.. but only if he was drugged. Well there you have it, you know more about me, hopefully I didn't scare you off. Bye.
