the weekly Sunday night post

Sunday night AGAIN and I have the blues AGAIN. We received a message on our voicemail Friday that our electricity will be shut off tomorrow so they can finally fix the line in our development. It has been an ongoing thing. We never know when we will be without power. This means no shower, no toilet and bedhead hair for the day. I plan to wake up extra early tomorrow in hopes that I can beat the shut off time.

It was a relaxing weekend. I didn't do much except the usual house stuff and laundry. Today I cooked off a pumpkin and then made homemade chocolate chip pumpkin muffins. I must say the house smelled good this afternoon.

I sure hope this week goes by quickly. I am tired of school right now, but it seems that most of the teachers are feeling this way. I think the district put way too much on our plates this year. I just wish I could get out of this funk.

So, here's to having electricity in the morning and a brisk, fall day without rain!

I just don't know...

one step forward and two steps back...that's the story. Off to get ready for work. I am ready for the weekend. Heck, I am ready for summer vacation.

four days...

I just got back from four days at a SB retreat house. It was so nice to leave my worries and responsibilities at home and just scrap, laugh and have fun. I was finally able to finish the land part of our Alaska trip this past summer as well as a mini album for my niece and a random LO called snake busters. I was quite happy with this LO as it was the first time I actually sewed on a LO...thanks to LOTS of help from a friend.

Now it's back to day two of reality...WORK. I can't wait until April until I get to do it all again.

Here's to's finally here.

I cannot believe it's been forever and ever since I last updated this blog. I guess it's time for an update. Life is busy, school is super busy and I am busy. There is not much new with me, same old stuff, just a different day. I am looking forward to a three day weekend. And then, two days of work and I am off for four days of fun scrapbooking...I am so looking forward to it. And you know what? I really don't care how many layouts I complete...just can't wait for four days of NO RESPONSIBILITIES! So, I am trying to get all the house stuff done tonight so I can enjoy my three day weekend. Adios, Amigos!

Here's to colorful leaves and apple cider!
