The Surprise

Awhile back I mentioned that I was working on a new project.

Then last week I mentioned that I had a surprise to announce soon.

Then of course, as I could have predicted.... I started getting emails asking if I was pregnant.

Of course, these were mainly from female relatives who had guts. The other female relatives all just called each other to say, "Is Bobbie Pregnant?"

Then the rest of the conversation would go something like this;  "I don't know... she never tells me anything!", "You know, she thinks she's soo private but she publishes everything, including our yoga pictures on her blog."

I love it. If you are one of those relatives (Aunt Debbie, Dawn) who did email and ask, I did not reply on purpose. It was too much fun to make you sweat it out for a bit but I do appreciate your gumption.

For those of you with gumption and Patience, I can now tell you my big surprise.

Clumsy Crafter is moving, not to Hawaii as I had hoped, but I'm moving to a self hosted server. For my dad and others who might not understand it really just means that you will no longer have to type in, from now on all you will have to do is go to .

Nice huh? Of course if you click on the Google Friend Connect to the right hand side of subscribe to my RSS feed from the new Clumsy Crafter site, then you don't have to worry about typing anything in, do you?

So go over there, take a look around.. and please remember to change your bookmarks or favorites if that is where you have listed me at.

But if you forget and come back to this website and not the new one, don't worry.. there will be a little sign there to direct you to the right place.

See you soon. (I hope).

2011 started with a clean sweep, literally.

  • Damion cleaned the garage while I was waking up (it's a process that shouldn't be rushed)
  • We raked and bagged the rest of the leaves out front.
  • Went on a family walk and played on the neighborhood graffiti wall  playground. We also took a plastic bag and picked up trash on our walk. Princess Girly Girl loved making the earth "all pretty". She's such a girl.
  • Went to dinner at Fudruckers, which I LOVE. I think it's the cheese sauce. It reminds me of the skating rink in the summer of 5th grade. 99% of the time I went there to see the cute boy that was always there, Jesse, and also because 98% my mom thought I only wanted to go to skate. I have no coordination, skating is just a broken hip waiting to happen.
  • Took a trip to the grocery store with Damion and all three kids in tow.
  • Started to declutter the house. It was that or just blow the entire thing up, which really isn't a viable option. I would loose too much fabric if there was an explosion.
  • Folded the five loads of laundry that Damion did, at least until Princess Newbie wakes up in the morning and unfolds it all.
  • Steam cleaned the stairs with Damion. I realized on the second to last stair that I had the steam cleaner on the wrong setting and I was only cleaning with water the entire time. I look smarter than I am.
Tomorrow we have to be at church an hour and half earlier than we normally go which means that I shouldn't have been steam cleaning the stairs until 11pm and I shouldn't just now be getting into be at almost midnight.

Tomorrow we have even more cleaning to do and Christmas decorations to take down.

2011 might start with a clean sweep but might possible end with me in the loony bin if it keeps going at this rate.
