Yes, I'm still alive...

It's been a busy week. I've started my new job and LOVE it - it's stressful but fun. I'm learning about so many new areas of crafting and it's an exciting time for me. The great thing is - I get home earlier now - yesterday I ran to buy some stuff for Maggie's birthday and still managed to get home by 6:00. That would have NEVER happened before. Most days, I'm home by 5:20.

Anyway - random thought of the day: Why is it that I love Mountain Dew but hate Orange Juice? I was just reading the "ingredients" of the Dew and one is concentrated orange juice. That's like the raisin paste in A1. (That's right people - read your ingredient labels. WTH is Raisin Paste???)

Oh well, next to concentrated orange juice is caffeine. Now, that's the good stuff! (Note: Normally, I don't drink soda, but I'm tired. I'm adjusting to a new schedule. Had to have one this morning. Cost me 3 points on weight watchers. Damn Dew.)

forgot one thing...isn't raisin paste condensed raisins??? sort of like tomato paste? It's funny you should mention raisin paste, because I had just hear of this in A1 the other day.

So happy things are going well for you Ginger!!!! Getting home earlier is so nice....though I have no room to complain...my store is 5 minutes away. Though Dh's commute to his office is 2 hours! yikes!
