For the last year, I have really wanted to go back to school; I want to work on another Masters Degree, but I want to get this one in counseling. I love teaching, don't get me wrong, but part of me wants a break from it, another part of me doesn't. What a Catch-22. So, all of this is wonderful, right? The problem is trying/having to balance my daily work with something new and to balance our lives with something new and our budget with something expensive!

I have tried to talk to DH about it several times, but yet, he still isn't 100% behind my plans, so I guess they will have to wait a little longer.

What a Day!

Friday was one of those days where it seemed like nothing was going right and everything was going wrong. I won't bore you with all the details but it was definitely a day that I don't want to repeat. But, we survived and now it is Saturday!

Today is Scrap Saturday. I am going to lounge about and scrap and work on some challenges for ASF and for Scrappin Mojo. I will have to share my creations when I get back!

Basic Grey Gallery!

Okay, I am so excited!!! Just got an email from Basic Grey where they had picked up my Card from the Caardavarks Day 4 Challenge for their gallery!!! WOOHOO!!!!


I sure it is like this for everyone but where does the time go? Here it is the end of July, with school just around the corner, and I am so far behind with everything I needed to get done. Then it seems like things keep being piled on and on and on.

I went to school today to work on a few things, I did get a few things done, but once I started looking at a few things, I realized that somethings that should have been done in May weren't done, so now, I have to back track and cover some one else's mistakes! Just something else that I really don't feel like I have time for!

Monday, Monday

Mmm, love me some Mamas and the Papas! LOL!

Okay, today has been a normal day of summer -- which means -- go to school and do some work! It amazes me how people think that just because I am a teacher, I have all summer off. Of course, most probably do, I just fill in and do other work at the same time!

Today was productive, even after work, came home and did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, cleaned the bathrooms, and mopped the floors. Yuck! I hate housework. I would so love to have a maid to come in and clean, I don't mind cooking, it is just the cleaning that I could do without!

Fabulous Friday!

I love Friday! Of course, it does mean that the first day of school will be here before I know it! Been working on some things already for it and actually need to go and work a couple of days next week. Going to C52 tonight, will take some things to work on, if I have time, planning to chat and help with some other projects while I am there though!

Around the World in 31 Days Blog Party

Almost time for the Blog Party at Queen Kat Designs. Go check out the challenges at the blog and at the Queen Kat Designs DT Blog as well.

Just Another Day

in Paradise? Well, not really, but it does feel like just another day. I have done housework today, worked on some school work, and need to do some crafty projects. Today is my last day of VBS also! YEAH!! I love it, but it is really exhausting. I am taking Friday off because we aren't having crafts for all of the groups (yeap, I am in charge of crafts!) and the only ones in there will be the 2s and 3s and my helper can handle. Why am I taking off? CLUB 52!!!! I so need a break and that is the perfect break!!

Found a great card challenge on Caardvarks and thought I would give it a try; here is my first card. It uses Queen Kat Designs Butterfly stamp from the June Card Kit! Love this kit!!!!

Starting Over

Boy, have I said that phrase so many times before. I am starting over on a project, etc. Do I think it will stick, not necessarily, but I am trying.

The main focus of my starting over today is my blog. Yes, it has been over a year since I posted. WOW! Why you might ask? I am so out of it that sometimes I forget that I have a blog. duh! But, I am going to do better. Maybe! LOL! We will see.
