Monday means it's my cleaning day. Monday means it's back to work, back to school, and back to the daily grind. Monday means I STILL haven't updated you on my Friday the 13th. The day I visited my mom's hometown. I got to see the church where my parents were married.
The house where my mom grew up...looks totally different now, with new siding. The new owners tore down the corn bin, too, one of my favorite places to play as a kid.
I inherited this watch from my aunt Violet's things, and just had a new battery put into it. I think it's beautiful.
Monday means I haven't yet told you about the new challenge over at Lotus Paperie, to use this awesome sketch!
Here's the layout I came up with, and the one I did for this week's Survivor challenge at TallyScrapper:
Monday means it's time to update you on my weekend! I can't believe it's over already, to tell you the truth. Friday I finished our tax return....but I don't have a picture to show you of that. :) Saturday was the Fun Fair at the kids' school, which was kind of a disappointment since we showed up for the last hour and they shut things down 30 minutes before the fair was supposed to be over! We missed out on the balloon animals AND the bounce house, which really sucked. The kids had fun, but next time we'll go earlier.
(Sheesh, that kid needs new glasses....look how crooked those are!)
After the fair, Alex and Maggie went to a birthday party/roller skating party/girls' slumber party (yeah, Alex was back home and missed that part), and I went to an Archivers' crop with Miranda! Got to see Kristy and Amy again, which is ALWAYS a good thing. And I'm not sure how this happened, but I only got two stinkin' layouts done! Well, mostly done...
(See that little Taco Bell dog in the corner? Rick and I take turns hiding that for the other to find, and he had tucked it into my packed scrappy supplies! That made me smile.)
And lastly, here's a sneak peek of my newest mini kit....I'll be adding more to it, but this is what I have so far. Still haven't thought of a name, but I want it to have the word "green" in it. Can you tell by my redecorated blog that I'm in the mood for green? :)
Sunday? I can't remember Sunday very well. I know it involved grocery shopping, a stop at the thrift store, then the rest is lost in a YoVille-induced haze...
Ooo, wonder if it's time for me to check in at my widget factory job yet? The next time I get paid, I can get that exercise bike I've been saving for...
Okay, remember how I said that Monday is my cleaning day? Yeah. I better get going on that before I get fired. Have a happy Monday!!
