I am so excited for my daughter Heather. She has been living at home since graduating college and getting a teaching job. So today she signed a contract on a townhouse very close to her work. I think I am more excited than she is. For one, I can finally move my scrapbook room that I so generously moved to the basement back up into the light of the highly anticipated soon to be vacant bedroom. If the seller's sign the contract this weekend (they are all the way in Florida and we are in Maryland) then on Monday she will have be under contract and on her way to owning her first home.
I cannot wait to help her with picking out furniture, moving, painting, and basically emptying my basement of all things we have been saving for her. I can't believe how much stuff is down there.
That is my great news for this week.
The bad news was last weekend my oldest son was in a car accident. He or anyone else wasn't hurt so that is the important thing and cars can be fixed. I am so proud (at least at this moment!) he is going to try to repair it himself. We shall see how that turns out. He has never been the car mechanic type but I give him props for attempting it.
So sorry for not having added to my blog but things have been hectic at our house. I got that nasty stomach bug at the same time that I broke my right pinkie toe! Talk about hurt. Its been 3 weeks and is just starting to feel better. Though there is the occasional time where I turn wrong and it still hurts. I am so silly as that immovable hand weight on the floor was there for weeks and I knew it but still my toe ran into it when I wasn't looking. I swear everytime I start an exercise program something happens to me. I think I subconsiously do it as I hate exercising. Do you think that works?
Well have a wonderful weekend and hope that it is getting Spring where you are. It isn't great here yet but getting there.

Daylight Savings Time

I was alot harder to get up this morning for DST than I thought. I knew I should have gone to bed at 11pm instead of 12. I was up at 6am yesterday which was really 7am so I could have gone to bed at 11pm with no problem but I didn't.
I don't mind when we spring forward as I like the evening hours at night. I really don't like when we fall back as I hated it when I left work and it was dark.
I didn't have too much trouble getting Andrew up this morning but he surely didn't like that the sun was just coming up when he was walking to the bus. He wears alot of black or dark clothes so I told him to make sure to not get run over in the morning.
Otherwise, I will deal with it.
Well the earth shaking event that happened this past week (last Tues.) was that I broke my right (of course my driving foot) pinkie toe. I was waking Andrew up for school and turned and stubbed my toe on a 3lb hand weight that shouldn't have been sitting on the floor. The worst part was that that weight had been there for awhile and I knew it. So now I have a chunk cut out of one of my favorite slippers to wear until this heals. On top of that the next day I came down with the stomach bug. Very hard to hobble quickly to the bathroom to throw up plus knealing down and getting up from the floor.
I have added at the bottom of the blog my slider with all my current layouts that I have done. It is the only place on this blog that I could put it that you could see the whole layout without it being cut off. So you will have to scroll to the bottom to see what it new.
Thanks for looking.
