What a week...

In a nutshell - crud... the heat, the bad weather, the medical issues (I still haven't told you about Thursday morning's fiasco...), the LAST (TG!!!) set of prom tuxes, an ex-coworker and a family friend have both lost parents this week, Brenden dumping his cereal and milk all over the diningroom carpet... Have I mentioned I STILL don't have the planting we started back in April done?!?! Every time I have free time it's pouring. At least we don't have flooding like Iowa. (Sorry, Heather! Hope all's ok!)

There have been bright spots, and I'm trying to focus on those...

- I won the W&W kit - awesome. Of course, dumbbutt me put the element pack instead of the full kit into my cart, and didn't realize it 'til this morning... DUH!!! (So I had to go back and grab the pp this morning.)

- I designed a mailing card for work this week that is totally NOT our normal style, but in MHO ever so much better! And, thanks in grand proportions go out to Queen Wenchie, Kris, for allowing me to use the frame from Bat-Boo (now available!) on it. I emailed her quick while at work 'cause I REALLY needed tape or staples and a polaroid-ish frame to make the design work right, and she came through!

- Things have been going much better at home for a while now, and tonight we're supposed to go see Kungfu Panda at the drive-in! Haven't been to a movie in over 2 yrs... Of course, KP doesn't start 'til 9:10 which is an hr after the kids bedtime so I've told them they MUST take a nap this afternoon. The second feature doesn't start 'til like 11:30, but it's the new Indiana Jones. Not sure if I'll be able to stay up for both! LOL

- This weekend is the town "field days" in Philly, and I'm hoping to take the kids over-town tomorrow for a while.

Seems like there was something else I wanted to share, but for the life of me I can't remember it right now! LOL I'm not that old so I guess I'll blame it on my 2 pregnancies having sucked the brain cells out of me!

**Edited to add... I remembered! We now have an LSS again!! It's Grand Opening was yesterday. She had TONS of acrylic stamps from several companies (including BG!), and chipboard - my two "paper" downfalls! With all my commitments I won't be leaving the digi world, but I may be walking that hybrid/paper line a little more often now! :)
