I'm what you call "book smart" or in my case "internet smart". A good thing, yes. But there is a downfall. It makes one develop a slight case of ADD. Now, I may not actually have ADD but let me tell ya that I really don't know how to say no to myself!
Make my own socks... you betcha! (Although truthfully it's the thing I hate to knit the most!) Can my own plum jam. Yep. Sew a costume for Halloween. Sure. I might throw in a few choice words for effect but I could probably do it. Become a woodworking goddess. Check!
The internet taught me all this. Now, if it could only motivate me enough to blog everyday, make sure my house is clean from top to bottom all while teaching my kids to become the next Von Trapen Family Singers AND cook a five course meal we might have something to work with!
