Completed another 2-page Layout

I was able to squeeze in a little scrapping time today. I worked on Beth and Pat's wedding album. I won't get much more done tonight since I'll be watching Ethan, and tomorrow I am going to Ruth's baby shower. Maybe I can do a little more scrapping tomorrow night.

Visit to the dentist

Well, I went to the dentist today for my tooth that had a piece break off while I was eating popcorn. As I thought, I have to get a crown. I did find out that the dental assistant is a scrapbooker. We talked about scrapbooking, well as much as I could with half my mouth numb, and hopefully we'll be able to get together soon to do some scrapping. At least something good came out of my visit to the dentist.

Memorial Day Weekend

It's been a busy weekend! Friday night I went to Beth's apartment and spent some time with her. Andy ended up staying the night there. When I got home, I went right to bed. I was exhausted after the busy week I had.

On Saturday I did a lot of running around getting everything I would need for the cookout on Memorial Day. Then Beth and Ethan came over and Beth ate dinner here. I did a lot of housework since I knew that I would be watching Ethan on Sunday.

Sunday afternoon, Beth brought Ethan over for me to watch while she was at work. We had fun playing, and Ethan did a lot of smiling. My Mom, Grandma, Ethan and I took a ride out to the cemetary to visit my Grandpa's grave. Ethan fell asleep on the way home from the cemetary. Beth came to pick Ethan up and go home, but my Dad had brought over some chicken over, so she stayed and had some for dinner. After Beth took Ethan home, I began the task of making potato salad . . . 10 pounds! I made so much because I knew three people would be taking some home. When I finished the potato salad, I laid down to rest and watch some tv. That's all it took, I fell asleep for the night.

Monday morning I made some cupcakes for dessert and then made homemade macaroni & cheese. My Mom, Dad, Grandma, Beth and Ethan came to have dinner with Andy and me. I grilled hamburgers and hot dogs. Everyone was full at the end of our meal. After everyone left, Andy went into his room and played video games and I relaxed and watched tv. Too bad I broke part of my tooth off while I was eating some popcorn. One of those unpopped kernels was hiding in the fully popped corn. At least it didn't really hurt. Guess I'll be making a trip to the dentist tomorrow. At least I'll be able to leave work early.

Been Busy Moving My Daughter

Boy, it's been busy since last Friday. We've been moving Beth into her apartment, and we still have more stuff to move. I haven't been able to do any scrapping, but soon I'll have my scrap room all set up and will be able to scrap as often as I want. It sure will be nice to not have to drag all my scrapping stuff out to the kitchen to scrap and then have to drag it back to storage.

I'm really looking forward to the long weekend. It will give me time to get everything done around the house that needs to be. Hopefully I can squeeze in some time to work on Beth's wedding scrapbook as well.

I get my scrap room, but it's kinda sad

I will finally have a room dedicated to scrapbooking. The sad part is that in order to have this, it means that Beth has decided to move out. She isn't moving far, so I'll still see a lot of her and Ethan, but it's still going to be a lot different. I knew this day would be coming, but wasn't looking forward to it.

Tonight she showed me the townhouse she is moving into for the next year while her husband is deployed to Iraq. It is nice. We went and bought her some pots and pans, cooking utensils and a toaster, as well as dishes, glasses and silverware. Beth will be getting Pat's furniture from his Mom's. Jane is also giving Beth a sleeper sofa. So she really doesn't have a lot more to buy.

After Beth has completely moved out, Andy is taking over her room. I will be taking over Andy's room as my scrap room. Luckily I already like the color on the walls, so I'll just have to move all my stuff in and then figure out how I'm going to decorate the room. It will be fun!

I probably won't get much scrapping done this weekend, but it will be well worth it because I will have a dedicated area for scrapping. I won't have any excuses then.

Relaxing Evening

Tonight was such a relaxing evening compared to yesterday. Yesterday I took my daughter to get her military ID. After that it just seemed like I had all kinds of errands to run. Well tonight, we didn't have anything we had to do. So I decided to do a little scrapbooking and here is the layout I got done.

Working towards my goals

I feel like I'm on my way to start reaching some of my goals. I had posted earlier that the word I picked for 2008 is ACHIEVE. One of my goals was to scrap more, which I have done since joining the 100 layout dash on the CKMB. I need to do a layout titled Achieve and list my goals. Hopefully I can complete that one soon.

I also have been sticking to my budget a lot better. We haven't been spending on frivolous things, only what we really need. This has also allowed us to spend even more quality time together as a family.

Hopefully soon I'll be able to post that I have met the goals I have set for myself for 2008.

More scrapping this weekend.

On Friday and Saturday, I did some more scrapping. I hope I'm able to keep going at least at this pace. It sure will help get me closer to being caught up.

Here are the layouts I did.

FINALLY did some scrapbooking!

I finally got a chance to do some scrapbooking tonight. I joined a challenge to do a 100 layout dash to use up supplies that I have before buying any more. Anyway, here is the first layout that I completed. Hopefully I'll be posting a lot more soon.
