gimme a break, will ya?

so at the advice of the ER doctor the other day, i didn’t put anything into my body aside from clear fluids for a few days, and then introduced the BRAT diet. meaning i wasn’t taking my medicines…and now i have a killer migraine. i didn’t sleep last night, i got possibly a combined total of 2 hours because my head hurt so much. we got a new baby at work today and she was so loud. i know it was her first day, i just didn’t have it in me to deal with it. she got everyone all riled up and off their schedules, it was a really horrible day. i’m waiting for a load of laundry to finish in the dryer and then i’m going to bed, i really hope to get some sleep.

here’s what i got accomplished this weekend:: the backgrounds of my valentines for my craftster swap, and i made a delicious pizza dip. none of the pictures are good because photographically speaking, i’m a moron.

i’m also doing an altered altoid tin swap, where we alter the tin on the outside and then fill it with goodies, the theme is valentines day, so it’s red and pink so far. i’m going for a textured look and i’ll paint on it with white. not sure exactly what yet though.

here’s a quick pic of the dip on the stove–i am so not one of those “staging” bloggers. when i post pictures it’s of what things actually look like, in the process. i don’t have the time to stop and clean every time i want to take a picture.
