congrats! kimber has your info and will be contacting you to get your goodies too you. and thanks for playing along everyone. it was so much fun to hear what everyone consideres their "must have" supply or tool.
i've seen this idea on so many friend's blogs and thought it would be fun. just some things about today. monday, august 17th.
outside my window ... my birch trees that really need some more trimming, so that i can actually have a view of what's going on outside.
i am thinking ... about so many different things. i don't even know where to start. i have at least 27 things going through my head at any given moment.
i am thankful for ... my air conditioning. had the windows open last night, which did nothing to cool down the house. i woke up at 7:00am and the house was already 80 degrees. i am NOT thankful for the huge bill i got last month. but i'm thankful that i have the option of actually keeping cool in this heat.
from the kitchen ... comes nothing good anymore. with soccer and everything going on now, there just isn't time to get in there and cook good dinners anymore. we have a lot of "whatever you can find laying around" dinners. lol!
i am wearing ... green/blue/purple plaid capri jammie pants, white tank top, and a blue tshirt.
i am creating ... a huge mess in my studio, moving all my pattern paper and cardstock from my island to my ikea shelves. which now means the stuff on those shelves needs to be moved. it's a vicious cycle, this organizing stuff.
i am going ... somewhere huge in a week and a half ;)
i am reading ... scrapbook magazines. do those count as reading?
i am hoping ... that my back is going to be ok. went to grab a basket of toys for the little ones this morning, and felt something pull. when my back goes out, it goes out in a big way. lifting the kids up and down isn't helping either. lol!
i am hearing ... silence. big ones at school. little ones napping. hubby sleeping. just the hum of my laptop. love it.
around the house ... little piles everywhere. amazing how much "stuff" the girls can leave laying around this place. especially socks. i can probably find about 7 pairs of socks in random places on any given day.
one of my favorite things ... is late at night. when joe has left for work, and the girls are sleeping. and it's quiet and peacefull, and the house is clean. that is my time, when i can sit and watch whatever i want on tv.
a few plans for the rest of the week ... school for the girls, work for me and joe, 5 soccer pratices, 2 soccer games, 1 night of awana at the church for the girls, 2 umpiring games for joe, 2 doctors apppointments (me and alyssa), 2 eye appointments (me and joe), and a family bbq.
a picture to share ... a quick photo of my twilight-obsessed girl. i have more photos to go with this, and with all her twilight "stuff". but those will come later ;)
