clean sweep

I just cleaned out my friends list for the first time in what feels like forever.  I'm making this post public so you can comment if you want to be re-added.  I haven't updated my journal regularly in a long time so I think the only ones left would be people I wouldn't think of un-friending, but just to be safe here's your chance.

I figure if my friends page is free of community posts that are irrelevant to me, then I'll be more likely to actually read it.  I am not interested in reading the minutae of strangers' running injuries or lesson plans right now.

If you would like to bid on the coasters made from melted Mardi Gras beads that I'm offering, with the proceeds going directly to the relief efforts in Haiti, then click here:


I may not have much money right now, but I do have time and creativity and more Mardi Gras beads than I know what to do with. :-) I'll post pictures of the coasters I made my family for Christmas later.
