Gosh! How long as it been?

Let me just say I have good excuses! 

TallyScrapper has had another SELL-OUT kit!  Spring Fling is positively awesome and I hate that I couldn’t get a second one.  I’m a little behind in my layouts on this one (see above), but I’m working on a second as I write this update.  Don’t let not getting the kit keep you from visiting the site though; there is new Heidi Swapp in the store!! 

Here’s a layout I did with the kit.  Click on the image to get a closer look.  It’s not what it seems! LOL!

On top of MY job woes, we’re still kind of waiting to see how things go at Pat’s job and praying we won’t have to move.  Because of this, we’re still working on our spring cleaning and purging things that we simply don’t need to hold on to anymore.   Since I’m in between jobs, I have taken this week to try and get a little further in all the cleaning out we have to do still.  So far this week I have cleaned out two closets, cleaned the living room and rearranged the furniture, cleaned and rearranged the dining room, cleaned the kitchen (still need to clean out the cabinets), cleaned the master bedroom, and swept, mopped and vaccum these rooms as well.  I’m almost finished with my office.  What’s left?  Jake’s bathroom and bedroom to clean, the master bedroom closet to reorganize and clean out, the master bathroom to clean, and then that will leave the attic and the garage.  IF we should have to move, I certainly do not want to move anymore that we have to. And did I mention my feet hurt?

Of course, in between all of this, there was Mother’s Day.  My sister and I took my mom out for lunch.  We had a great time, and of course, I miss my sister so much that it’s always good to spend any time at all with her.

Jake has been sick this week, too, with a sore throat, congestion, cough.  Now I feel like I’m getting it.  Just great!

Oh, Pat decided to go ahead and purchase this:

Her 1996 Honda has been a good car, but she definitely needed to be replaced.  With gas prices as high as they are, most think she’s a little off buying the Highlander, but it came so highly recommended and these days with almost everyone in a larger vehicle, those of us still in sedans are at a big disadvantage, IMO.  The good thing is, Pat drives my car to work every day and I get to drive the Highlander!  I don’t drive nearly as much working at home, so I love it!

Last Saturday was Take a Kid Fishing Day at Cleveland Park here in town.  Jake caught 1 bass and 3 brim or sunnies.  I think Pat had more interest in the fishing this time than Jake did, but it was still fun for him.

I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but that’s what I get for staying away for a while.  Happy Friday everyone!!
