The Day That Wasn’t

Y’all, I had great plans for today. I was going to get so much done. I was going to do laundry (that I managed). I was going to cut Marty’s hair (check). I was going to edit pictures (nada). I was going to write a post based on the pictures I edited (zip).  I was even going to start on the kids rooms (zilch). I had plans y’all.

None of that happened. Nope, this wasn’t the day of accomplishments. This was The Day That Pinterest Ate. I sat down to clean out my email inbox before I edited pictures…and I made the fatal error of opening a Pinterest email…you know, those emails that say someone repinned one of your pins. Someone repinned one of my Doctor Who pins and one of my geeky pins and I followed the links to the boards they pinned them to.

I knew I should have run from that sucking sound. I’ve been there before. But, if you don’t run the minute that sucking sound starts, Pinterest reaches out, grabs you, and doesn’t let go. On the plus side, I found some really cool shit, including some fab geeky craft tutorials, tons of Doctor Who stuff, and so much more. On the minus, I didn’t get much done today.

Here’s a small sampling of my fun (pictures are clickable and take you to the pin)…

A Fabulous TARDIS Sewing Box...it may not be bigger on the inside but it is still cool as hell

When’s the last time you got sucked into a site like I did today? Was it Pinterest? Facebook? Something else? If it was Pinterest, what did you find?

    ooooo, love that top. I mostly pin food to pinterest, but I know that sucking sound, too.

      I absolutely adore that top and I think I’ve figure out a way to make it longer once it is assembled (the length was the only thing I didn’t love about it).

    I remember the few weeks after my surgery that Pinterest ate. I couldn’t concentrate on reading or TV, was miserable and spent days on Pinterest. So easy to get lost there.
