Monday Monday

So here we are, Monday. Kinda funny actually. Yesterday, I was running around like a crazy person trying to fit every last "thing" I had to do, into the weekend. Then it suddenly dawned on me, "hey dummy, you don't have to go to work tomorrow...or for the next 2 months, so relax!" Have to admit, that was a sweet revelation. I'm just so used to spending weekends getting everything done, I had forgotten about summer vacation.
I must say that I've been scrapping quite a bit lately. Really enjoying the process. Here is just one of the many LOs I've created in the past several days:

I really love Making Memories. Always have.
We're taking the kids to Syracuse tonight to catch a Chiefs baseball game. Should be fun (I think). Ciao!

Bring on summer vacation!

As of 3:00 pm yesterday afternoon, I am officially on summer vacation! Let's hear the sigh of relief.....Aaaah! I don't have to wake up early, jump in the shower immediately or even leave the house for days at a time if I don't want to. My niece is here right now and she & my kids having been playing peacefully (believe it or not) all morning. I've not heard one single "Mommmmmy" yet! If this is any indication of how summer is going to go, I'm in 100 percent! Hee hee I am hoping to find some amusing things for us to do together this summer so I don't have to hear "I'm bored!" Nothing makes me cringe like "I'm bored!" (well, maybe a Gyn exam but let's not even go there! LOL) I have gotten so much accomplished today, I'm just on a roll and if I pull myself from this here puter, I am seriously going to scrap away the afternoon. Happy scrappin' friends!

A good weekend

I have to say that it was a really good weekend. Dh had the weekend off--which in the police world doesn't happen that often. The weather was wonderful, not too hot, not too cold and mostly sunny. There was shopping involved, lots of good food, lots of family...just the way a weekend should be. Gotta love that.
I made these cookies for ds to bring to school today:
Can you say Mmmmmmmm? Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Mmmmmmm? Believe me, I do apologize if I have just blown any thoughts of a good week of dieting for any of you. Sorry:(
Guess that's all for now. Let's hope for a wonderful week ahead for all. C'ya!

I don't know what I've been doing lately, that's all I know is that I've been too busy to blog or scrap or even, dare I say, cook?
I guess it's just this time of year. There's only a week and a half of school left and there are so many activities winding down around here, like soccer and Tball and baseball. I'm so anxious for this week and half to be over with because then my life should return to normal. At least I hope anyway.
I've been doing lots of decorating and rearranging of furniture. Doesn't it aggravate the heck out of you when you have ideas and you can't find what you're looking for in the retail world? Or am I the only one with these problems? No matter what the item, no matter what the color, it seems as though I'm always ahead of the times or something. After I go to all ends of the Earth to find an item, 6 months later I find said item everywhere I look!
Which reminds me...if any of my legions of blog readers (said sarcastically of course) should come across any cute art work of an octopus or crab that I could hang in my childrens' bathroom, please let me know. I've been through and etsy, but I haven't found that ideal piece yet. (Melonie, if you're reading this, I even checked out your etsy gallery hoping to find that you've been reading my mind and painting cute octopuses (octopi?)!)
So, I'm going to try to start blogging regularly. If I should disappear again, it should only be for a week and half. Then I can be a blogging fool all summer long!
