I started writing this post yesterday at 9:00 am. I wrapped it up at 9:00 pm, but it couldn't get Typepad to post. Weird. It's a NEW day and everything seems to be working now.
Today … I took an early morning walk with my good friend Kerry. We "caught up" with our lives and it was so good for my soul.
I helped arrange shipment of class kits to Japan! I'm getting really
excited to visit Osaka. I just received the latest issue of CK/Simple
in Japanese and my Finish Line Scrapbooking article is in it.
It's so crazy to see your pictures and not be able to read what the
article says — it's OK, I'll be working with Nicky Bywaki a wonderful, seasoned
translator and I'm sure she won't let me get lost!
All this got me thinking. If I can send these adorable Postcard
Highlights kits all the way to Japan, so I can go teach, then why
couldn't I teach this fun project online and send kits out to
What do you say? Who'd be interested in getting a great little custom kit all wrapped up in the price of a self-paced projects class … leave me a comment if you're interested.
I followed up on and corrected an unknown download charge on my
AT&T bill (things like this drain my energy, so I am particularly
proud of myself.)
Today … I also extended the AppleCare protection plan on my iPhone. That's two painful tasks in one day — WOW.
I spent an hour in Target with my kiddos. We purchased birthday and
wedding gifts a few BINGO related items (craft project, puzzle, game,
etc.) my very most favorite nut mixes and some fun canvas blocks in the
dollar section (I have an idea of course — let's see if I follow
through.) We bought cool plaid shorts (on sale) for Trey and Taft, and 4 new summer dresses for Addie because that is all she will wear.
Today … Geof had a meeting after work, so I took the kids, except Clark who was cliff-diving with friends (heaven help me) to Pizza Hut for dinner. Haven't eaten at Pizza Hut in years. It was YUMMY and we had FUN.
Today … We
attended a fun wedding reception for Trey's 4th grade teacher. She was
Mrs. Childress and now she is Mrs. Hurst and we are so excited for her
because we feel a special connection. She has four boys! She
experienced an unhappy divorce, but she is now married to another
teacher and he is a wonderful, wonderful man and they make an adorable
family. Some of the students in Mrs. Childress' class had penpals in
Mr. Hurst's class this past year (at a different school) and tonight
all the students were invited to a special party where they got to eat cake and watch the wedding video — how cool is that?!
Today … I felt productive and back in the swing.
