Long Weekend

Well my weekend didn't go as planned. Bad news about my stepdad and the prognosis isn't good so I spent the weekend plus Monday and Tuesday at my parents place and the hospital. I won't go into personal details it just is very bad.

On a nicer subject, I ordered this huge book called "Digital & Hybrid Scrapbooking with Photoshop Elements" and I must say the instructions in here are very clear and precise. I can't wait to find some time to put some of the things to use.

Brenda from Millstream Cottage Designs has a great new kit called "The Dragon in Nick's Pocket". I can't wait to make some layouts using the papers in this kit. The colors are very boy friendly and since I have boys it will work great. Check out her blog at the link to the right. She is a great designer. I will post some layouts as soon as I can.

One last note. Hug, kiss, call and love your family every day. You never know when it will be the last. :{

Is this week over yet?

Wow it is only Tues night and already I am wishing the week away. I know that my dear husband is going away for the weekend and it will be just me and the boys. How fun! I hope to get some scrapbooking done and definitely work on finishing moving all the scrapbooking things back upstairs to the room. I have curtains to hang and some furniture and supplies to still move up from the basement but at least now that the a/c is working again I will be cooler.
Isn't it funny how dependent we are on things like air conditioning, driving our cars and cell phones. Wow, when I was my kids ages we didn't have any of those things and didn't care what the next person had that was better than yours. Ok maybe I cared if someone had the Barbie house and I didn't but I still had fun. Ok now I have really dated myself I think I will log off. I certainly hope to work on some new layouts so that I can post them this weekend. I also see a movie in my future weekend too. I seriously need to see the Sex in the City movie so I can know what happens to those NY girls.

Happy 4th of July

Wow where has the summer gone already! We celebrated the 4th quietly at home but did take a short trip to town to see the fireworks. Andrew is the only child home right now. With Heather moved out and Eric working/living at the summer camp it is pretty quiet here.
Today Andrew has work later but we are just hanging out. I have been working on moving all my scrapbook stuff from the Scrap Dungeon to the room that is now empty from Heather moving out. What a chore!! You just don't realize how much stuff you have being a paper scrapbooker, digital is so much easier.
Mostly I have been working to get a stupid burr/splinter out of the bottom of my husband's foot. He walks around in his bare feet alot so they are very tough but he isn't so it is proving to be a challenge. MEN! What a pain, literally! Luckily he doesn't read my blog.
So I need to go move my 6 foot table from the basement up two flights of steps and I can't get that done until I get that thing out of his foot as I can't carry the table myself as it is very heavy.
So I leave you with a little request for some prayers for my Dad, he is stuggling with some unknown medical issues right now and he could use all the help he can get.
Thanks and Happy 4th weekend.
