By the Power of GraySkull

I would usually use my afternoons during quiet time to get a lot of my blogging done. But my girls have discovered He-Man, not to mention She-Ra on YouTube. They absolutely love them. I'm not really surprised since it was one of my favorite shows as a kid. However, I have suddenly sacrificed all my blogging time to the most powerful man in the universe. And to make matters more interesting, YouTube only shows the episodes in three parts (about 8 minutes long each) so I have to be around to click on the next part or I get screams of "MOM!!" from the girls. So I have found a new hobby. It is called athletic crosstitching. For those of you unfamiliar with this sport, it is very similar to regular crosstitching, except that you get up from your seat every 7-8 minutes. I may prefer regular crosstitching where you can sit for an hour at a time, but athletic crosstitching is probably much healthier for me. Needless to say, I have not gotten much blogging done, but hey, Kari, I am almost finished with the giraffe.

I know YouTube is awesome for all those vintage cartoons, that's how I brushed up on all my info for my blog on favorite cartoons. I agree about the 8 minute thing, but I have taught Ashton how to get around so I don't have to keep doing it myself.

Now I am totally doing the "She-RA!" part in my mind.

Did you know you can download those episodes and stitch them together. (I didn't know this, but my techo-savvy husband is all in-the-know on these sorts of things.)
