So I got the info on line. You put a piece of fruit ( banana ) in a jar, cover with plastic wrap secured with a rubber band, and poke holes in the top. Instant fruit fly trap... and it works too. Only one problem... I can t figure out where the things came from in the first place, so I could just be creating a retirement home for the old flies while the next generation parties on. Makes it all pretty frustrating anyway.

Right now I should be finishing the ornaments for the guild swap.. but I looked at them yesterday and found cracks along the edges. Hopefully Ill be able to fix them, just havent figured out how. And what I really want to do is make a ghost doll, or work on some more newborns. But I always feel like I shouldnt start a new project before the old one is done.

And then there is the lack of sleep too, I lay on the couch until 3 this morning, trying to be tired before I was finally sleepy enough to go to bed. ... what the heck was that all about??? Just generally not a good week to deal with anything. At least the little boy I watch wasnt here today so I could catch a little nap.

Back to the war of the flies now, maybe Ill try sucking them out of the air with the vaccuum.. if nothing else it might be fun to try....

And so it continues. Got the girls on the bus and thought, surely now I have time to create... Yeah, right. Instead of doing anything creative I sit typing this while waiting for info about fruit flies to pop up. End of Nov. and snow on the ground, but apparently the fruit flies lost their map and calendar. They are in the kitchen now buzzing around, just waiting for me to come back. Seriously, there is no fruit out and no food sitting around, cant they just go away??!!?? Hopefully Ill find some magic cure all on the web. Or else when the five year old gets home Ill just let her in the kitchen with a fly swatter... if nothing else it will tire her out.

Wish me luck!

Today is the first day of the rest of my life..

deep huh? Okay pretty cheesy actually. But I guess what it comes down to is this. If you want some free time to be creative ( Im a sculptor/ doll maker) how do you find it when you have kids? Yes eventually they all go to bed, but seriously,by then, who has the energy left to create? Ah well, tomorow should be a better day. In the AM all are at school, and the little one wont be here either. Tune in tomorow, maybe I'll have pics of my latest piece to show.
