i’m lame.

Filed under: etsy, knitting, me — Jana @ 10:54 pm

I am now starting to wonder if anyone even bothers to check this blog any more, since I sure don’t update it… ever.

I thought to try and save the two readers I might have left I would do a “junk” post and just write about random thoughts that come to me, even though not many blog worthy things have happened.  Well actually, there have been a few things that have happened that would have been blog-worthy, but since my camera all of the sudden decided to never charge again, I have no pictures to document these events.  I will then rely on whoever was there taking pictures to send them to me. (so if that is you… I will love your buns if you send them my way.)

If you would like to know what I have been doing instead of blogging, the answer is probably etsy.  My esty shop is doing really well right now and so I have just been knitting up a storm.  In between that, we have had lots of company staying with us, and I go to at least one baby shower a week (with all the preggys there are these days)… so that doesn’t leave much time for me to sit down at the computer and form complete thoughts.  However, since I am unable to use my body in any physical way I was once capable of, I have done A LOT of internet shopping.  I guess you could say I live vicariously through on-line shopping carts at the moment.  I have put so much maternity stuff in my “cart” over the past few weeks, My internet closet is stocked! If you are wondering why I have nothing to show for it, well that is because (being the level-headed girl that I am) I always talk myself out of completing the sale.   I know I have only 4 weeks to go, which really doesn’t seem that long, but it is so frustrating going into my closet to spend 45 minutes trying on 5 billion different concoctions that might work with this basket ball under my t shirt (not to mention, the squishiness in other areas), only to leave and still feel uncomfortable in whatever I picked for the rest of the day.  So to satiate my thirst for cute clothes: I go on-line and imagine myself in all the great fitting maternity gear I could dream of, put them in my cart, then close my browser, and dream of the day when I am able to fit in to my closet full of normal clothes.  If only there was a way to eat french fries on-line, without ingesting any of the calories, that would be ideal for me.

Maybe if I sell enough cozies, one day I will be able to justify clicking that “checkout” button… but just probably not worth it for the next 4 weeks.



  1. Hey Jana you lame-o. Lol just kidding. I’m jealous that you have an internet business. I should think of something to sell on etsy. That was where I got all my craft inspiration for my wedding. I love etsy :) Can’t wait to see pics of your new baby. Carmen is so adorable I’m sure her baby brother will be just as cute! Keep posting…I check every so often but there’s usually no update so I try not to bug. Now I know that I should cyber nudge you every now & again.

  2. I love how you got a spam comment to start your own online shop on your post that is about your existing online shop.

    Stupid spambots.

  3. Cute post Jana. I wish you were nearby because I have bought WAY too many maternity clothes with the last one and this one. With Tristan, I had to get up and go to work every day, wearing business dress the majority of the time (and casual on the weekends).

    Already, I have had four people borrow my clothes. The good part is, that I am not a shorty and buy my maternity pants way too long, even though they are so hard to find because every Maternity clothes maker thinks that every pregnant woman is a stump – I usually have to buy “longs” online. So I am sure you would have fit in them (at least my 1st trimester stuff anyway – you are so darn skinny)!

    I have already had 4 girls (other than myself) put my maternity clothes to use. It would be like the old days, when you would come to “the mall” (or at least that’s what you called my closet in HS) and pick out whatever you like.

    But….I digress, you do not live near, so I hope you take that as a lesson…you need to live closer!

    Okay, just kidding…did I really go on for that long? Either way, I am glad to see you back on your blog. I have had a dry spell too, but it’s always good to try and keep up on it, for the journal entry sake.

    PS – your etsy stuff is adorable, as usual.

  10. Sorry I don’t leave comments to let you know that I am still reading your blog! I usually just have quick moments to check in and see what you are up. You are adorable and I’m not seeing the “softer parts” you are referring to. You look incredible! I can’t believe you only have four weeks left! Congrats on your etsy shop success.

  13. I don’t have any pictures of your recent activities but it would make me feel so great if you told me that you “loved my buns.” Yeah. I would really like it. :)

  14. Jana…you are adorable. Good luck withthe delivery – it will be here before you know it. I want to view your online business stuff – etsy? – let me know how I can see what you’ve been up to with this new business of yours.
    Love you,
    Aunty Ang
    (Oh, and by the way Jana…THANK YOU SO MUCH for the beautiful Christmas card! We are so grateful for your thoughtfulness. You all look like movie stars in those pictures! )

  15. Ahaha!! HAHA!! No readers. I am laughing at that. I read. All kinds of stuff all the time and too much sometimes. I have too much time on my own hands too. I don’t have a sweet internet business like you though. I am not that talented!!
    I hope you get your camera fixed too, or get something new so we can see all the bloopers that Carmen creates. It is too funny and it’s cool to be able to see you and your super cute family from so far away. ; )
    Good luck with the next four weeks. I know they feel like eternity!!

  16. I just sent you some pics of “The Weekend”… I think we all have an appreciation now for the headache (and heartache) camera equipment can cause when it decides to malfunction!

  17. I’m laughing at all of us who “aren’t” reading the Jana Banana blog. :) I’m always looking to see Carmen stomp a cheesecake and check out the all the babes that keep my “little ‘spoken hot’ chickadee” (Jana) out of trouble.
    See you in a few weeks… lots o’ love
