a sick day. almost.

annie-sloan-chalk-paint-mason-jars

I had every intention of calling in sick today.

 

But it wasn’t going to be a real sick day.  Because I’m not sick.  I was going to give you the fake sick call-in …

 

* Cough *

 

Hellooooo ….

 

That was going to be my opening.  The fake cough followed by the gravely, drawn out hello.  Spoken softly.  Almost a whisper …

 

* Cough *

 

Another cough for good measure.  Followed up with …

 

I’m not feeling so good today ….

 

* Cough * 

 

*Cough *

 

* Sniffle *

 

And then I would give you my litany of fake ills:  My head hurts.  My stomach is queasy.  I feel weak.  I’m burning up.  I was up all night ….

 

* Cough *

 

But somewhere between my viewing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 on ABC Family and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on my Amazon Video Library, panic set in …

 

… my cursed, ingrained goody two shoes nature kicked in …

 

And I realized I just couldn’t do that to you.

 

Fake coughs and fake illnesses couldn’t be used to mask the fact that I have no new projects to share.  That nothing was worked on over the weekend…

 

I mean, really?  How could I find the time with all that Harry Potter viewing going on … Winking smile

 

So instead, I show up here first thing all bright-eyed-and bushy-tailed …

 

… to give you yet another shameless plug for my Etsy shop!

Shameless, I tell you …

 

You know what?  It probably would’ve been better if I had just called in fake sick after all …

  1. No sick days for you, LInda! ;-) Love these!

  2. Don’t you know that when you’re blogging you don’t have to call in sick? You’re the decider. If you post you post. That’s it. But I do really like these white jars.

  3. i’m glad that (1) you aren’t/weren’t sick and (2) that you did post the shameless etsy shop plug. the last time i looked at your etsy shop, you had mason jars but no drop cloth items. while i like mason jars, i’m not “into” them, i’m sure you get the difference there! but drop cloth items, now that’s a different story. so yay! and definitely agree with karen, if you don’t feel like posting, that’s the benefit of being a blogger and not a factory worker.

  4. Those are so darn cute. Oh how I know this story. The internal drive deep within me doesn’t always reconcile with the need for just shirking all self imposed responsibilities. There comes a point where you cross the line from occasional blogger to blogger with some responsibility to others. Usually I am happy to show up here and share something, but there are days when I would just like to pretend I don’t know anything about the blogosphere. So looking forward to Haven, hoping my blogging batteries will get a be recharging!

  5. These look like perfection! Love the color!

    Have a wonderful day rock star!

    :) me

  8. Those are adorable! And I hear you on the sick day! I really want to call in tomorrow…

  9. You know I will always have a soft spot for your mason jars. And the chalk paint ones are just as fabulous as the others you’ve posted.

    I feel like I’ve had a sick week! I’ve been so caught up in my hectic little life that I haven’t had a chance to write anything down! (Still – don’t be afraid to take a day (or days) off. Sometimes it’s liberating!)
