Friday is finally here

I'm so glad this work week is finally over. The week really seemed to drag on. It also didn't help that I wasn't feeling well today. I came home and slept a little bit and felt somewhat better when I woke up.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to get some scrapbooking done. The only thing I have to do is take my son for an appointment in the morning. One project I want to work on is a Valentine's Day card for my grandson's first Valentine's Day. It is going to be a fun project , and I can't wait to get started.

After seeing a post today on the CKMB, I chose my word for 2008 . . . . ACHIEVE. I chose this word because I plan to achieve all of the goals that I have set for myself this year.

First and foremost is to make a budget and stick with it! No more caving in to my whims or those of my kids. I also want to set aside a lot more time for scrapbooking and start using all the supplies that I have stocked up on, as well as all the fun tools I've accumulated.

Some other goals are: spend even more quality time with my family, update my blog on a regular basis, lose weight, walk a lot more and start saving money early for Christmas so I'm not scraping it together at the last minute. I'm sure I'll be adding more goals the more I think of them.

It's Been A Long While!!!

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost six months since I last made an entry. I had a very busy year in 2007. My daughter, Beth, had an adorable baby boy on Friday, October 12, 2007 at 10:40 a.m. His name is Ethan Edward. Needless to say, I've been very busy helping out with his care, especially since they live with me.

We had a nice holiday season, although it seemed to fly right by. Next year will be more fun because Ethan will be old enough to enjoy it.

I'm looking foward to 2008 being a good year. One of my goals is to try to make time to do some scrapbooking (it's been forever since I have done any!) and to update this blog on a regular basis.
