I didn't suck as bad as I thought I would...

I opted to not go to small group tonight and, instead, I took a card-making class at a local scrapbooking store. It was fun :-) I always feel anxious going into these things because, odds are, most of the people there are going to know much more about whatever we are doing than I do. I'm really bad that way- I put way too much pressure on myself to be a perfectionist and I don't give myself any patience or time to learn something new. I was pleasantly surprised, though... I really didn't think that I was going to do well, but the teacher sat down with me and showed me a couple of tips and, for the first time making cards, they came out fairly well... here is the finished product for 3 of the 5 cards we made (the other two are still in production :-)

Oh, and an update on 'Smallz' (our mouse/rat/creature)... he/she is still alive and kickin'. He/she has been taking in a lot more fluids and seems to be doing okay.

Aaron tells me the rat is going to adore you b/c they're VERY affectionate. I don't see how he/she couldn't adore you for the kind of woman you are! Amazing.

Great to see you today!
