Wow! Talk about a Monday!

First off I found a PM at a site I visit only when posting CT LOs normally asking me to join a CT! Apparently my email notification had gotten turned off when a site update was done so I didn't know it was waiting there! Whoo-Hoo! It's only the 2nd time a designer has asked ME rather than me having to apply! And, let me tell you, after having my last 10-15 applications be turned down (very nicely) it was nice to be wanted! So, I am the newest member of the fabulous Michelle Pieters' CT!

And, don't get me wrong - I know all my current CT designer love and want me! :P

Then I get a PM from Pamela Gibson letting me know one of my LOs using her products is going to be featured on her CT Blog today for customer highlights! WHOOT!! It isn't up yet, but I'll be checking back later! :)

I had to leave the pc for a while 'cause my sister's family was coming over. So I spent about 3hrs doing dishes, making pasta salad, potato salad, and fruit salad. I also had to make a quick run to SuperWalmart with Mike to grab a few things and exchange our propane tank at the gas station as we'd run out of propane about a week ago! Nora and the family couldn't stay as long as usual because Krysti brought a friend who had to be home shortly after 3, but it was good. We hadn't gotten together since July 20th. We only live about 15 miles apart, but schedules don't allow for as much time together as we'd like. Her kids are 7-13 while mine are 4 & 5.

Then Yahoo pinged... I had a message from my friend, James! We hadn't "spoken" in about 9 months. (Our schedules not meshing very well either. LOL) So we chatted for about 10-15 minutes. Job-wise he's doing very well back in CA, and he's even looking into buying a house. He'd lived here for a few years which is how we met. He was my supervisor at the call center for a while. Things happened, and he decided to move home to CA where he got a job with the client from our contract because he was that great with their product! On the personal side he's been diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. He's undergoing chemo, but says things are ok atm. Good thoughts welcome!

Oh! And, I almost forgot! Diane tagged me with an I [heart] Your Blog Award that I need to pass on as well! Maybe tomorrow...

I managed to stay away from the pc again 'til after people left. But then... I finished a LO, both my prize packs for my August challenges at DSG, and posted my Sept Rainbow Challenge. So overall yesterday was fairly productive and relaxing with some good news thrown in!

Which reminds me... the new stores (including my templates) at Digital Scrap Garden are up! We've got several new designers joining us so be sure to stop by and check them out! And, while you're there swing by our awesome challenges as well!
