Where Oh Where Did My Weekend Go!

Can you believe its over? Where do the days go? The week seems to just drag on, but get to the weekend and its gone in a flash. I really think we should be off five days and work two. I think that seems much better! But, we still should be paid like we worked for five LOL! Hey.. its my dream.. It should be how I want it :p

So, today I went through a bunch of challenges.. put them in an excel spreadsheet so I could sort them by date. That way I know which ones are going to be done and I can keep track better. That will work much better.. I will stop working on challenges that are already finished LOL! I might actually get more of them completed this way.

Just said goodnight to Kevin. We had our nightly, his morning, Skype visit. He has to see about a front tire issue on his motorcycle. He hasn't had that tire very long at all... it was after March when he got back! And the tire is dry rotting on the front. There is something seriously wrong with that. I hope the guy doesn't give him any problems and replaces it like he should. He gave him a bad tire. We will see what he says in the morning.

Now I'm just waiting on the kids to get home. They are on their way. I'm ready for a shower and to crawl in bed. That's when I turn the television on and watch a little Netflix before bed. I'm watching "Brothers and Sisters" right now. I never thought I would like that show, but I was wrong. I'm really enjoying it. I love the close knit, dysfunctional family dynamic LOL I love Sally Field too.. I think she's great. Oh... And Rob Lowe.. wow.. he's a good looking man.

I do have some news.. I applied for a couple of Design Teams and I was accepted by One Stitch At A Time! I couldn't be more excited to join them and I look forward to creating and learning along side them all. I hope to see you all join in on the fantastic challenges there! And be sure to check out the shop for tons of GREAT digis!

I did manage to work on a card today.. I rally don't like how it turned out LOL, but that's me.. picky. Too simple or something.. I don't know.

Again.. using all scraps. I used Maraschino and Denim twine from The Twinery! .. gotta love that stuff! Die-namics dies for the flowers... Botanical Beauty, Prima Donna Petals and Mini Royal Roses. Inked with Walnut Stain Distress ink.. The middle circle is from Spellbinders. Oh.. and the USA was from a Sizzlit - Bounce. And I inked the roses on the edges with red. I think that's it.

I'll be putting this into these challenges:
Oh.. and the kids are home. They haven't stopped talking since they came home; especially Michael. My gosh!! I think my sister loaded them up with sugar before they came home! I'm off to shower and head to bed.
