Where have I been??

life is getting away from me, lol!!

in the past week i was at the LSS THREE days in a row!  friday was a crop night with the gang of gals i scrap with...saturday was a very cool class where i created a row house piece of art work...sunday was another very cool class where i created a mini book using some awesome tim holtz fragments (i need to get more!!)

and, since it seems no day is complete with something scrap related, today i stopped at a chain scrapbook store and got a paper pack of the new basic grey -- archaic line!  cute little dinos on it :)

yesterday my brother turned 32; today my dad turned 66


other than that fun stuff -- work, linguistics, homework for SE, etc -- what a life i lead!!

now, to figure out a way to get a new laptop, or at least a keyboard -- this cruddy one is now missing 3 keys!!

Let's try this sucker out!

so I just downloaded windows live writer and so far it is pretty easy to use!!  PLUS, what I see is exactly how it will look on my blog (pink background and all!)

since I last posted quite a bit has happened:

Tuesday was a rainy day of errands and going to the dentist...

Wednesday I had a meeting at Webster about my middle school certification -- some of the requirements have changed, but they are all good for me!  I only need to have one area of certification now, not two (so no need for me to take a bunch of social studies classes!), but my favorite change is the fact that I only need ONE math class now, not two!!  Wednesday was also when a cutie named Samantha Olivia was born!

Thursday I got to spend the day with Meghan!  we had fun, even if it was a VERY frustrating day!!  you can read about the frustration here

Friday was church for Good Friday and then I went to the glass olive with some friends (Barb, Kathy, Cathi, et. al.)

I need to get some photos uploaded soon -- Meghan used the digi camera on Thursday and I used FILM!!  I adore using film, so I was happy :)

I have been trying to get some (all) of the homework complete for Scrap ETC -- it is in just a few weeks!!!  I want to have the homework DONE so I can have complete projects whenever possible!  I have enough half baked projects already sitting on a shelf waiting to be finished, I don't need more!!  I have a list of possible photos ready to go (some are taken, some I will just "dig out" of what I already have on the computer, etc), and I want to have all of the photos ready to print by the first weekend in weekend they are doing some question and answer times and blog posts, so that will clear up some of what I might need for homework, etc...

ok, so this is now a super long post, and no photos :(  but it was super easy to do as well!!  I will post more soon :)  and hopefully have photos in that one!

the signs of snow are GONE!

well, it has rained on and off today, any signs of snow that were still hanging out (like the salt on the driveway) are all gone! now the worry is about the rivers flooding!!

today i stayed in my jammies all day (the shorts have green, so no pinches for me!) and got quite a bit done -- more cleaning in my room, sorted through shoes and clothes, cooked some stuff, washed 2 weeks worth of dirty dishes (we use a lot of paper plates at my house), finished homework for my linguistics class, and has been a long day, but a lot seemed to get accomplished!

tomorrow is a busy morning with errands and a dentist appointment, but i hope to work more on my room in the afternoon (or maybe actually clean the bathroom!)........

** Monday: i stayed home sick from work (fever, 'member?), but i did make it to class that night

** Tuesday: work and finishing to modify a ton of tests & study guides

** Wednesday: work and then Mad Science -- I used some powders and water and bleach to make LIGHT in a bottle!! it was very cool! it impressed the kids even more than the dry ice last week!!

** Thursday: work, post office to mail my charms for the swap (see post from a few days back), and then target

** Friday: work, turn in my kit from this past week, CostCo to get food for this weekend's youth retreat at church, and then later i went to the youth retreat! so much fun!

** Saturday: finish retreat, cleaning, laundry, plus my dad & i just got back from taking ALL our recycling in! i am bushed! while the youth were doing rally stuff, i got the food ready and worked on my bulleting boards (power hour and youth group)

i will post tonight or tomorrow (i hope) with photos from last weekend's road trip to quincy!
