Where does the time go...

Wow, I really haven't updated in a while. I guess I can let the cat out of the bag so to speak. I have been consumed with creating lo's for a contest. I finished it up last night, took it and mailed it today. It is out of my hands now. I enjoyed the whole creating aspect though, I find that this really challenged me to get stuff done. I think I am such a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl that I really need deadlines. It gives me some definite thing to work towards. Any way, it's gone (in the mail) and I have 20 lo's done. If nothing else I have that. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I really like that saying. I think those are going to be my key words for 2008.
In other news, Bre is really looking forward to summer. She is on the countdown till the end of school. She is wanting to teach some kids classes at Griffins over the summer, and just goof around. She said "Mom, they put so much pressure on us at school, I just need a break." She really takes her work to heart and worries constantly that she forgot something or is going to let herself down. I am glad that she takes it so seriously, but I do think she needs a break to re-energize.
Roxie also got her first haircut and she looks so much littler. I was apposed to it at first, but DH said she needed to be cooler for summer. I have to admit I really like it, I think we might keep it like this.
Went to a crop last night with Nita, Kristy, Bre and Syd. We had a great time. I think it was good for all of us to just hang out and let out some stress. I love the time we get to be girls, instead of Mom, Wife, etc. Not that I don't love my life, it is just nice to let my hair down every once in a while. We missed Stephanie, hopefully she will be able to join us next time.
My friend Julie became a grandma for the first time. Everyone is doing good. A few little complications, but nothing major. Just say a little prayer for them if you can.
I went and looked at a new hotel for the retreats I do. I think I found a new one. Love the hotel and love the people there. I think I might try for a September retreat. Keep your eyes open for updates on this.
That's all I can think of right now. I now there is more, my mind is just going blank.
I promise I will be a better blogger, I think I might have to find some new pics to post.
P.S. Kim if your reading this, I hope your move went smoothly. Bre and I are looking forward to visiting you soon. If you come for a visit, make sure to stop and see us.


  1. Wow!!! What great pictures! Bre is so cute....I hope Mary Ellen will be that cute when she's 13. Sure hope the September weekend works out. I need the crop time. I haven't done anything since March. I'm taking a jessica sprague class on PSE. It's great and I'm learning a lot!
