ONE. I'm so freaking excited that I'm going to South America. I was running one morning and thinking about the actuality of my nueva vida en Santiago. I had the dumbest grin on my face for the next three miles (well, I was smiling until the shady looking cars pulled in the parking lot of the park). Thank you God, because my joy is currently acting as a lid to suppress my fear of failing.
TWO. I have one thing on my mind at this moment. What on earth am I going to do with my cat?? Seriously, if I cannot find a home for her, what next? A shelter? The pound? If anyone knows anyone who knows anyone willing to take care of an adorable, sweet, loving kitty-cat, please, please, please let me know!
THREE. Alright, what's been happening on this side of the tracks, you ask? Well, last night I opened my Etsy shop! At least, I'm excited about that one - not everyone I've mentioned it to seem completely on board. Maybe they are worried I'm going to try to sell them something. Don't worry. I hate promoting products. For example, I would tell people that LA Fitness was cheaper than the current gym that employed me. But I couldn't lie and say we offered a better deal! But I will say, you should look at my shop and give me feed back. If I don't sell anything, then you guys know what you're getting for Christmas. Win-win situation (unless you are a male on my shopping list). Yesterday, I felt like an idiot in my backyard trying to snap some photos of myself wearing the scarves and such that I had made. Here are some rejected images:
As you can tell from the bottom left, I was sick and tired of this self-inflicted photo shoot. Anyways, check it out: Cute, Katie, Cute. Please, try not to laugh too hard at my ridiculous photography skills and corny catalog descriptions (maybe I should contact Elaine from Seinfeld to give me some pointers)! Although I will say, I hope it cheers up your day.
As for the rest my days, I'm enjoying this autumn (except for my failed pumpkin carving attempt) with friends, family, Little B and Little C, the Texas Rangers, crocheting, baking, and reading.
Are y'all having a great fall, too? Thanks so much for reading! And feel free to comment!
