I am alive... and I HAVE been doing something...
Hey there everyone...
OK - I know... I have no good excuse other than just life stuff?! I keep trying to not be sitting in front of a computer all day too - and so that has not been helping?!
Chuck was here... and we had a short visit - but even though it was limited - it was classic Chuck! I seem to recall something about dirty pictures on her Bunko Score sheet... but hey - at least we all got prizes that night! (Plus I still have a couple of bottles of wine in my frig?!) We had fun at the Scrapbook store and yes, I STILL have your Owl Stamps... they are Oober cute, BTW! LOL! I will send them to you soon - I promise! I am thinking they may come with a 5x7 Acrylic block and maybe even something else too... we'll see!? I haven't decided what yet?! ...it will all depend on how "Golden Moon" I am feeling!
Last week it seemed I had an appointment (or more accurately, a play date!) every single day?! No wonder I felt busy... add that to the reality of having the OLYMPICS in the complete OPPOSITE timezone, and I don't feel so bad for feelng so exhausted last week!? Each day I had a fun little coffee or lunch date with a friend! On Tuesday I met up with a few of my Prayer group gals and had a great visit! On Wednesday I met up with three local Sparks gals and had lunch! That was fun! We had been chatting online and decided to meet up in person - something I think we will do more often now that we have done it once! That was fun! On Thursday I had a 'date' with all my crazy Scrapbook Spark gals online and, well - THAT was fun too! Then, on Friday, I had a date with a friend from church! We had been trying to hook up for literally a couple of months... and that was fun! It seems, even though I am a fairly quiet person (shut up!), I can get together one on one, or with a small group - and hours just seem to disappear?!
However, it hasn't been ALL fun and games... I also did some 'work' - well, not really! I have been corresponding with two possible new clients, but the work I refer to is my own projects! I worked a bit on Saturday on that infamous Friendship Album:
How much do you LOVE that Cosmo Cricket line?! YUM!!! ...and on Saturday I also started work on a Mini album for those gorgeous Whidbey Island photo's I shared in my last post:
Today we had church... and then Olympics (OH yeah - I woke up at 3am to watch Nadal win Gold... nice!) and then we had a city-wide concert/worship service at church! That was great! It was like a family reunion - we saw so many people we haven't seen in ages - so that was fun, plus Ross Parsley is AWESOME!!!
So - this week, I have a meeting tomorrow morning. Tuesday morning I have an online crop, and then in the afternoon I am taking my daughter out of town to go Back to School shopping... we'll come back Wednesday night... Thursday I have a date with my sister (and Kaye has Orientation at the Jr High) then in the evening, I have my Scrap Happy group. Friday I have another Online Crop and then my sister and her fam are coming for the weekend! Yay!
Then, we have ONE MORE Monday to hang out together (which I THINK will include some movie rentals and a Jammie day!) before school officially starts up again! This summer seemed to fly by! We had a great summer - staying somewhat close to home - but it was relaxing! I am, however, ready for back to school and back to routine! (and maybe back to cleaning my house again too!? ...maybe?!)
Anyway - there ya go... a somewhat lame update - but an Update nonetheless!
