And THIS is what I made while chatting--see I wasn't 100% ineffective!
I'm always seeing such CUTE, CUTE, CUTE little moleskin cahier notebooks on etsy. And on a wonderful, childless visit to Barnes and Noble yesterday, I picked up some of these journals--knowing I wanted to do something fun with them. So I trimmed some fabric scraps, put a heavy-duty needle on the sewing machine, and quickly stitched this fun notebook! Now I need to decide what to use it for--do I pop it in my purse for thoughts/ideas I have on the run? Do I keep it next to my chair, and use it instead of the 4,000 sticky notes I keep on the table? Do I use it for my prayers? I don't know. Maybe I should make up the other two--then I could have one for each! I'm having thoughts of using some sheets of music I have.....
Maybe the upstairs will get done this afternoon?

PS--Lest anyone think I did nothing today BUT sew this cute little notebook and laze around--a reminder--I DO have two preschoolers underfoot--they need feeding--constantly--and dressed and loved on and played with.... Also, I did manage to fold a load of laundry, re-organize the linen closet, wipe down two walls with mysterious milk splashes on them, clean up crumbs and LOTS of playdoh, vacuum the floors, frame a picture and hang it--finally!, and play beauty salon with Bug--on top of the cleaning of Bug's room before breakfast. I just didn't finish the plans I made before the day got started. :) That's normal!
