Last Weekend of Freedom.


I don't mean to sound like a party pooper, but I am SO NOT ready to start back to school next week.  I keep telling myself that the sooner I start, the sooner I can be DONE.  I know this.  Somehow it just isn't helping.  

I am not looking forward to a messy house, being behind on the laundry, feeling like I am stretched to my limits with all the places I need to be and all the things I need to do.  Being in school at my age with all of the other responsibilities I have isn't easy.  I am not going to lie and say that it is.  However, when I get that diploma in my hand. . .well, then it will be OH SO WORTH IT :)

I know that once I am back into the swing of things that being back in school won't be that bad.  It is just getting settled back into the routine of school that always makes me a little bit anxious.  After a week or two, all will be well I am sure.

On a side note, the binders and notebooks I embellished for school make me smile.  I had fun making them last night.  I am sure I will share their cuteness on my CRAFT BLOG soon :)

Okay, I am off to enjoy my last few days of freedom.  Lots to do.  Lots to organize, so I can start school next week feeling like all is well on the home front.

First Day of School Pics.

I am lucky to get these pics at all.  The kids are stinkers about it now.  They used to pose and have so much fun taking first day of school pics.  Now it is a quick stop by the front door and one click and done.  Oh well.  At least I have them :)
She thinks that she is all that and a bag of chips now that she doesn't have to take the school bus anymore :)  I remember those days. . .

Where did the Summer go?

Just got my kids off to their first day of school.  Hardly seems possible that Summer is over.  Wow.  Only two weeks until I start back to school too.  Not sure if I am ready.  Life gets so insanely busy when school starts.  Sometimes it seems like there is hardly time to breathe. 

I can't believe that I have one child who has graduated, TWO in high school, and one in intermediate school this year.  Even harder to handle, my baby just started his LAST year at the elementary school today.  Man, I am feeling old. 

I will post first day of school pics later :)

My Happy List.

Is it Friday already???  WOW!  This week seriously flew by!  I haven't even posted once since my Happy List last Friday! 

Here is my Happy List this week.

Running.  I have stuck to my 5K training schedule for two solid weeks with no slips ups!!!  YAY!  That makes me very happy.  It is a small thing, but I am determined to get back into shape :)

My Craft Room.  I am glad that I have had two solid days to work on my craft room so that it won't look like a tornado hit it anymore!
Photographs.  I LOVE pictures.  Well, I love taking them.  I HATE having pictures taken of me.  While I have been cleaning and organizing my craft room I have sorted through a TON of pictures.  They bring back such great memories.  I just love them!
My Label Maker.  Just labels in general really.  You see while I have been organizing my craft room, I have labeled everything and put everything in its place.  There is just something so satisfying to me about having things organized and labeled.  Is that weird???
What's on your Happy List this week???
