so sick of being sick

Well, Sunday morning at about 6:05 AM, I awoke and needed to hit the toilet bowl really fast...I was so sick. The flu finally hit me. It wasn't until about 1:30 PM until I was actually able to not have to be sick every half hour...just like clockwork! So, here it is Tuesday night. I will be going back to school tomorrow. I am stilll not 100%. I am just so wiped out, tired, stating with a wet, hacking cough, and just not feeling hungry. And man, talk about a pounding headache. I think that is from lack of food + energy + caffeine = one tremendous, pounding, never-ending headache. I had to cancel my painting class tonight. That realy bums me out as I look forward to my weekly paint lessons.

So, tomorrow is back to the grind. I HATE going back to school. I mean I love my job and the kids but don't like the idea of having to go through two days of plans and then plan for day. That is the job of being a teacher I really dislike. I just need to tell myslef on my drive to school tomorrow, "it will all come together" and take several deep breaths.

So, needless to say, I have taken two over the counter sleeping aids in hopes that I can get a good night's sleep. Who knows what is in store for me since all I have been doing is sleeping, napping and resting.

fun night

Well, Friday night I went to a midnight crop. It was much needed after such a long week at school doing all that state testing. I met up with Wendy and we had fun times. Lots of laughs. Heck, there were only about six people there and noone talked but Wendy and I. I bet all the other croppers were glad when we left. I actually completed three layouts, minus the journalling, titles and embellishments. That is big news for me as I am lucky if I finish one layout at a twenty hour crop. Anyway, I will finish up those layouts at home this weekend.

So, this morning I am finding myself doing the wash. I want to get all my house stuff done now so I can scrapbook all afternoon and into the evening. I really want to finish my album of our trip this past summer to Yellowstone and the Tetons. Then, I need to work on "blue" ATC's and an accordian album that I am being paid to make for the secretary at school. FUN.

Happy Saturday!

and another one

another card...


Well, it's snowing outside. School left out early so that is always nice except, I HATE THIS WEATHER! We are expected to have more frigid temperatures tonight and ice, too. Here's hoping we have a two hour late start. It would be so nice to be able to catch an extra two hours of sleep tomorrow morning.

Here is a card I made. Ms. Muse is still visiting. I hope she decides to stick around a bit longer.

count it...TWO!

Can you believe it? I am in the creating mood...made a criss cross card for my mom's birthday and attached a GC to it. I am loving this card!


Nope. Not me having a child. I just created a LO about a newborn fawn that I saw while up at the cabin. I just love the photo. It looks like the fawn was actually posing for the camera.

scrapbooking mojo is back...I hope!

I've been in the mood all day to scrapbook a LO. So, I got out my Scenic Route and created this LO of Lighty. I just love this photo of my DH. Hopefully tonight while the men are watching the Superbowl, I will be in Studio 109 doing some more creating since my mojo seems to be back.
Doing something stamping or scrapbooking related is also a challenge put forth by my cyber friend, Karie. We are to create 14 cards or LO's by the end of the month. One down and thirteen more to go...here's hoping I can succeed!
