Another Sunday and the first QotW...

***WARNING LOOOOOOOONG POST!! LOL ***

So I still haven't managed to take the time to gather all my CT Valentine's kits, but some are included below... I've been awake since 5:30am again, and REALLY wish I was asleep. At least 2 nights this past week I don't think I managed to get more than an hour of sleep at any one time all night. Maybe I'll try to sneak a nap later. I'll probably feel too guilty to do it though - as usual I have a looooong to-do list for my 2 days off.

The first load of laundry just finished washing. I'm hoping it is the only load I have to do today, but we'll see if Brenden had an accident overnight when he wakes up. Then we have dishes; taxes; my P365 - w6 LO; 4 CT LOs I should get done; 2 QPs & 3 mini kits to package for Wenchie's store; a mega frame pack, some templates, & an odds'n'ends paperpack to package for both stores; some general straightening of the house; Micaila's Valentines for her class; gather the garbage for tomorrow morning; try to come up with 25 interesting facts about be 'cause
3 people have tagged me on Facebook for it now; and watch The Caveman's Valentine so I can send it back to Netflix. I think that's it. Well, beyond the norm of 3 meals to fix... Part of me wishes Nora would decide to come over to play cards so I would have an excuse not to do 1/2 that list! LOL

It warmed up enough yesterday that last night as we're trying to go to bed it sounded like we had a pack of snowboarders on our roof... At least it seemed to stop once I fell asleep 'cause I'm a light sleeper, and would have woken up every time more slid off the roof...
---------------------------

So I've gotten my birthday present from myself 4,000 questions for getting to know anyone and everyone... I've decided to do a question of the week thing where each Sunday I'll post a random question from the book, answer it, and ask you to answer it if you are reading this. So, here is the first random question...

In what order do you keep your currency in your wallet?

Mine's smallest to largest front to back - except if I've just gotten change, and don't have time to put it away. Then the change bills are folded in half at the front of my wallet! LOL :) Nope! Not anal at all! LOL My husband who tries to claim I am not at all organized has his money all mixed up in his wallet...

So? How about you?

In scrapping news...

If you haven't heard yet, Nicole Seitler of Sugarplum Paperie is now the proud owner of The DigiChick! Congrats, Nicole! I LOVE her designs, and am sure she'll do great things for the site. :) I've been told by a little birdie that her newest Grab Bag is MORE than worth the $3 - not that I've been disappointed by her grab bags before mind you...

JanaM also has a Grab Bag up at TDC for $3 which I can vouch is worth the money if you like her designs! I've been able to play with it as I'm a guest CT for the month! :D Here's my 2nd LO using it:

.: Kristine :. said...

Ditto what Bug said!! I'm exhausted now!!!

Thanks so much for the pimp and just because I tagged you on Facebook doesnt mean you have to do it silly...LOL

Intense Magic said...

Wow...I need a nap reading all you have to do LOL! To answer your question...when I organize my bills they are front to back, smallest to largest...but most of the time they are just randomly thrown around my purse :) Have a great day...hope you accomplish everything!

Creative Junkie said...

On those few occasions I actually have money on me, I like to do smallest to largest, front to back.

But usually, I just avoid the entire scenario and pay everything by credit card. I've been known to charge a $0.79 thing of TicTacs.

Pathetic, I know.

Beth said...

Cash?
Um, I don't think I have any of that.
Like Andy, I've been known to charge tic tacs!!

Busy list. I'm off to nap after reading it!

It really wasn't that long, lol. Lots of great pimpin! And look at you taking on another great designer.

As for your question of the day, I rarely have cash in my wallet or even my purse. I use my debit for almost everything. And rarely my wallet for anything. Even my DL and CC are not in my wallet. lol

Hope it's warming up where you're at. It's hit 50 here so we're celebrating!!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
