I'm Sorry

I have to apologize to my blog this week I know you are lonely without me...but life is busy and there has been no time to devote to you. It's not like many people read my blog, actually not sure if anyone visits on a regular basis...but it is a way for me to track my creative life! Unfortunately I volunteer for everything and find that I have little time for me so things like this get shuffled to the back burner, when in reality it is what I want to do the most!!! So again I am sorry so for the neglect this week, it is not intentional!

I will leave you with a few of my most recent time to explain them but here they are!

A Layout with Photos

Here is the layout I showed yesterday with photos that I added. On my way to work so I have no time to tell about my week so far, but I can't believe that I am posting 2 days in a row and I even had time to do a new background and header for my! Don't be too impressed cause it doesn't happen that often!

Have a great Thursday, it is one of my favorite days of the week...think it's because I go to work later on Thursdays and I get some time in the mornings to just do my thing!

Mid Week Post

I don't know why it works out this way but I always do a mid week would think I would do something on Monday or Tuesday since those are my days off from work, but I guess I get busy with other things and find myself posting on Wednesday. Crazy I know, but at least I am blogging...that is still a new thing for me! I want to share today my tis the season album by Teresa Collins. I joined a giveaway over at her blog several months ago and won this awesome album, it has literally been months and I am just now getting the time to put the album together, but wait I have no photos in the album, that will take another couple months!!!

The kit also came with instructions to make a 12x12 layout, this photo was taken before I added my pictures, but I promptly came home and add the photos, but havn't taken photos of it yet...that will have to wait!
Stay tuned because I have about 25 new layouts to share, I have been on a roll for the past 2 weeks and have been super creative and busy! Makes me so happy when I can be creative and productive!

I am back!

I really enjoyed some much needed rest in the mountains this week, unfortunately the week went by so quickly! I came home Wednesday and had to go back to work, but the boys stayed behind to continue some maintenance on the camper...nothing really exciting going on for me, except I was a scrapping fool, got 16 pages done and a mini fun! Except I don't have my camera with me so I can't take photos of all my new stuff, it will have to wait til next week.
Today I am off to shop with the girls, my daughter and her friend, it prom dress shopping time...we already have one, but need to get shoes, jewelry, and alterations...I would normally do the alterations but her dress is beaded and needs some hand work so I am thinking I will leave it to the pros, unless it is too expensive, then I will make the time to work on it!
I can't believe that it is Friday already, the weeks just flew by...seems to happen that way now that I am getting older! No fair! Gotta find me some youth juice! Hoping to come back soon with some good shopping news...I will for sure update today with all the good finds!

Spring Break

Yippey! It is spring break for my kids this coming week! I know they are so ready for a break from school! As for me, I need a break too, but I just can't take the time off work, so we are only having a short trip this time...we leave Sunday for the mountains for a couple of days, should be fun! Of course we are going to clean our place and get it ready to sale...kind of bitter sweet. Oh well, it is just life and right now we could use the money in our pocket and not have to worry about the upkeep of the camper.

Nothing new in the creative department to share today...just haven't been in the mood lately. I do have layouts from Monday, but I haven't unpacked them from my bag to take pictures of...just call me lazy, or too busy! I think I like the latter one.

I will share with you a little book that I made as a make n take at one of my card swap get togethers, don't think I ever posted it here...think we made it in February, I am so behind...I keep meaning to add photos to it but no time!

Hoping everone has a great weekend! I know I will because I am working today and then we are having a big steak dinner, should be yummy! That is another story to tell, got some filet mignon's on sale this week for $8.99 a pound, but apparently one was mismarked and I paid 54 cents for it!!! Didn't even realize until I was home! It has been a while since we had a steak dinner, with us watching all the money that is just not an economical meal, but I just really wanted it! Going to start our spring break off right with a little BBQ and enjoy some much needed R&R! Not! I will spent the next 3 days cleaning! Campers get very dusty in the winter. I will have access to the computer and internet so hoping to get a post or 2 in...trying to get better about posting even if it is just a little something!

It's Hump day!!!

So it is already the middle of the week and I feel like I have been so busy I can't even remember what day it is!!! I want my life to slow down! There are just too many things screaming for my attention, kids, housework, errands, homework, meetings, etc. I just don't have enough hours in the day to get it all done! Think I am slowly loosing my mind!!! The good news is spring break is next week for our kids...makes things a little easier, I can at least sleep in! We are going up to the mountains to our camper for part of the is bittersweet though because we are getting it ready to sell. I am so sad that we are selling, but need to move on and make some changes in our life. One day we will be able to afford it again and get a better camper! Of course with the state of this economy we may find it difficult to sell, so we shall see.

On the kid news front Miranda made both the football and basketball Varsity cheerleading squad! I get to be president of the program one more year! Yay for me! Devon went to a follow up dr. appt and his stomach infection seems better, but we still keep him on some of the meds for another month. Devon did however get in trouble on the bus, there is this girl that likes to bully him and I have been talking with the bus driver for several months and nothing really changed until my son had enough and won't a not so nice letter and threw it folded as an you can guess that he got in trouble. Lucky me getting a call from the asst. principal on Friday afternoon. So everything is good now, but we have not let him ride this bus this week, just want things to settle down after that incident. Apparently this little girl gets in lots of trouble on the bus and at school, so it was no surprise to the asst. principal when I told him of all the previous incidents, we did decide to put Devon in a group class to help him with friends and give him some time to talk to the counselor. I am so worried about him, he is the smallest in his class and seems to get picked on alot, instead of deal with it he gets angry, he holds it all in and then will explode...not a good thing. I am sure if we continue to talk with him and teach him to make good choices then it will be better for him. Didn't mean to go off on a tangent, but I am feeling like this situation is consuming my time lately and it certainly helps me to talk about it, or just write it on my blog.

In personal news, I had a migraine this weekend...guess it was all the stress that caused it. Made me so sick on Sunday. I was suppose to head to Lake Lanier for a work party and sleep over on a house boat, but ended up waiting until late Sunday to get there...took me taking my meds twice before the headache dulled enough for me to function. Of course I get to the party and have no fun at all, it was too loud so I went to bed while the others had a blast! I did enjoy the next morning when we went for a cruise on the boat. I think I will have some photos later in the week to share, haven't had any time to look at my camera and go through them...maybe later!

I will leave you with these photos from a few weeks ago. Me and a few friends from work went to see Kate Gosslin speak and one of them got to go and meet her! We were so excited and jealous for her!

Sorry for such the long post, but I felt like I needed to get all of this out!
