1. Planning for a much needed summer break (one of the perks of being a teacher). This includes enrolling Nico in a week-long summer camp, finalizing vacation details and thinking about all the things I will accomplish...hopefully. 2. Watching DH diligently trying to complete renovations to our family room, beautifing the yard for summer and organizing the garage. 3. Trying to keep up with Darci Dowdle's BPS class, Baker's Dozen. I love the fact that by the end I'll have 13 completed layouts or at least 13 preplanned LO's that I can complete at a crop or leisurely over the summer. 4. REPORT CARDS!!!
I walked in to my local Michael's to shop some weekly sales and scored a MM file tab punch for just $12.99, regular $27.99! I love a bargain! I'll return later in the week to save 65% on wall frames! Yippee!!
I know, I know. It's been ages. Life is busy. As much as I think it will, it just does not slow down!! Here is what has been going on: 1. I am back at work teaching full time. 2. The boys are with grandma 5 days a week but this has taken a toll and will possibly be going to four, just trying to figure out what to do with them. 3. We are tackling some small renovation projects - new windows, new built-ins in the family room (finally, a space to display my scrapbooks), gathering quotes for new shingles, waiting for DH to begin renovating our main bath, a project we planned over a year ago! 4. Dealing with an almost 5-year-old who wants to be the boss and seems to have no regard for respecting his elders! I have never seen tantrums like this and there are days when I dread coming home from work. 5. Just found out we are expecting our first nephew! (We have three nieces presently). He will arrive in mid-September. 6. Still running two home-based businesses. 7. Trying to figure out how to keep up with house cleaning, groceries and laundry. 8. Planning a mini-van purchase - my heart is set on the Toyota Sienna in Charcoal grey, hubby does not agree with color choice. Well, there it is. My life in a nutshell.
I am a happily married mom of two boys aged 5 and 16 months. I hold two degrees - a BGS and a B.Ed. I run two home businesses, one as a Creative Memories consultant and another as a lia sophia Advisor. I am also a founding member of the Calgary Crops Scrapbooking Club.
