favortweets! round #4

You know, before I sat down to write this post tonight, I thought Wow I’m not even sure how many good Tweets there were this week, it seemed pretty quiet.

I love Twitter. (What’s that? YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT TWITTER IS?? Get out from under that rock and read this.) I love the succinctness (um, yeah. is that a word?

Still have time left in the day for some Friday 5! 1. How often do you get paid? When my clients send me checks! heh Being a freelancer comes with the joy of irregular payments.

napping and knees and ad revenue, oh my!

What is it with babies and kids fighting naps? SERIOUSLY. When you’re a grown up, for the most part, it’s Hey, I’m kinda tired. I’m gonna go to sleep! Or it’s at least Hey, I WANT to go to sleep. Maggie just fought a nap for 2 hours. She didn’t go to bed until 10… KEEP READING »

makes me want to dig out my old yearbooks and start scanning

I am like WEEKS behind on this. Everyone else was busy Yearbook-ing themselves a while ago. But I never got around to it.
