Shout Out

Because I’ve been up since 4 am and I have a killer headache…

Or, because I would much rather complain because I have been up since 4 am and have a killer headache, or because I’m extra sensitive to my office neighbor’s voice today.  I wish I could wear noise cancellation headphones all day today.  Instead I’m going to focus on something positive.

I would like to give a special shout out to one of my dear friends.  She just had her third baby.  That alone is pretty amazing.  But wait, there’s more.  She saw fit to send me a very sweet present during her nesting phase.   She sent me these super cute containers to hold various and sundry office supplies.

I’m a huge fan of office supplies and containers that hold them.  Really.  I have to restrain myself from buying yet another writing instrument, cool box, journal, etc.  All. The. Time.  It’s obsessive.  I know.

Back to the Shout Out.  Did I mention she had two kiddos and one on the way when she sent these containers?  Pretty awesome.  Oh yeah, and she made these containers herself.  I mean she hand forged the glass and the lids.  I think she even used her loom to weave the fabric.  Ok, not really, she did create the lids herself – paint and decorated beautifully.  I think it’s pretty awesome that she even considered someone other than herself or her family during her pregnancy.

During my nesting phase, all I could think about was how I HAD to have the nursery ready for our little bundle of joy.  Freaking out about it, some might say.  How was I to know that the baby would not sleep alone (and by that would not sleep unless she was in my arms) or that when I did try to set her down in the crib, all of sudden the crib looked huge and she looked too tiny?  Back in my arms.

Anyway, shout out to friends that love you and think of you when they should just be thinking of themselves.  You make me a better person.

Naps also make me a better person, but that’s only because I’ve been up since 4 am.
