Almost the weekend...

It's been a while again. I was hoping to go shopping on my lunch hour. I NEED to find a top and/or jeans to wear for Sat. night (surprise 40th for neighbor). I get around all of these skinny women and feel very insecure, so I try to find clothes to hide some of the rolls!! Some day I'll solve the problem by losing weight.

Anyway, can't shop on my lunch hour. J needed the car. He's going to pick me up so we can get a big salad somewhere. I guess I'll be going out tonight. Tomorrow night I have to bake desserts for the party. Sat. I have a baby album class which will take me right up to 4:30-5 and the party starts at 6:30. I'm really hoping I can get in on the big gift some are chipping in for. I do not have the time to shop!!! And no clue for a guy who is 40.

Long day....

I can't wait for it to be over!!! This has actually been a long month at work. We have a TON of doc students defending/graduating this year. Can't wait to get rid of 'em! We've had a group of difficult ones.

I think I'll try scrapping one last page in my last CM album. I'm switching to toploading. Can't wait! It will be different for me!

I also have a neighbor's Take Ten card books. I usually zip through and make a ton of cards before I return them. They get my creative juices flowing. I also got a Paper Crafts mag in that I haven't gone through. I'll be busy over the next few days.

Also have to come up with a dessert to make for Sat. night (dinner at a neighbor's). Not sure if I'm going to the neighborhood book club on Fri. night either. Two nights in a row are tough when I've had too much wine or something else!! Ah, if I only had some control!~

Well, I guess I didn't realize how long it has been until Kathy M asked how long since we've updated our blogs.

I was very successful over the weekend. Got 8 pages done. Aruba is complete so all I have are two pages, one Thanksgiving and one Christmas and I'll be done with 2002. I have those laid out and almost ready to go tonight.

I finally ran out of albums so I'm not sure what to do until I make a final decision. I guess I could preplan or maybe work on the boys albums. I think they're about a year behind. E's will change dramatically since he broke up with his gf of 3 yrs. So I guess I shouldn't put any more of her in his. That will be difficult since they've been inseparable. She's been on all of our family vacations! I think there is a new one on the horizon. I missed meeting her last night. J said she's very cute. They are friends at this point.

Maybe I'll make some cards tonight or just finish the sb'ing.

It's Friday, well not really.

It feels like Friday because we're closing our office tomorrow. We have a floating holiday for Evacuation Day. YIPEEE!! I'm going to head south to the Burlington mall to pick up a bracelet at Brighton and the music store for J. I'm also going to clean if I can get to it so that I have the rest of the weekend to make some cards and scrap. I still have to make a 40th for 4/1, a bridal shower for 4/23, a 20th card for E for the 5th.

As far as scrapping goes, I want to finish the Aruba trip and move on to other pages. As much as I love doing great beach photos, I put a lot of pressure on myself to make them extra special.

Bloody Friday!

Well, started off my morning on the wrong foot. I was getting ready for work when I heard a little knock on the bathroom door. G had a huge wad of tissues on his nose. He said he got some on the carpet too so I ended up on my hands & knees scrubbing the carpet. That hydrogen peroxide works great!

It wouldn't stop right away so he missed the bus and J gave him a ride before taking me to work. I guess I'll have to call that ENT after all. They just won't quit!

Well, what a weekend!! Fri. night went to neighbor's crop and got a little tipsy before scrapping. We all had a little too much wine and then sat down to scrap. I got two pages done and someone else got one, the other two didn't get any done! OOOps, we'll have to be better next time.

Then I went home and listened to the guys playing guitar and joking around. It was fun but I had a big headache on Sat. I spent almost the whole day playing around in my scrap room with stamps.

Sunday started out productive. Got some cleaning done & food shopping. When I was almost done, got a phone call about G having another bad bloody nose. We ended up taking him to the ER to see if there was anything they could do. Long story short, they told us what to do in the future and said to get a humidifier which I got on my lunch break today.

Went home, ate dinner and stamped again. I have a ton of card pieces that I now have to put together and also have to do my Easter cards for the swap I'm in. Maybe tonight after the treadmill & dinner.

AHA! So that's how you do it!!

I've finally figured out how to post a photo!! Yippeeeeee!

That's one of my favorite pictures from my Hawaii trip. Ah, brings me back.....

Not faithful....

Well, I guess I just can't keep up the daily posting routine. I've been way too busy at work. Besides, there's nothing new to say. My life has been pretty uneventful (NOT that I'm complaining or anything...).

I'm wondering if we're going to get the little amount of snow they've predicted today. There's nothing yet and they said around noon. Somehow the storms have turned around and the south gets hit more than the north. We need to reverse it since the ski areas, hotels, etc. are really hurting this year. I can't believe we didn't get out snowmobiling ONCE this year!!! We wasted a huge amount of money insuring the machines. Oh well....what're you going to do?!!

Tomorrow night should be interesting....a crop at a neighbor's where there's a private squabble going on between 3 women. I'm staying out of it!! I hope I can finish my Aruba trip. It is a lot of fun to scrap though. It brings back a lot of nice memories and the pictures are so beautiful!!

Back to work!
