I'm Off

I'm off to Florida tonight. Well, technically, early early tomorrow morning. 3:00 am to be exact. I'll be traveling with my boss, her husband, and a co-worker to Orlando for an EK Success (big scrapbook product company) workshop. I'm very excited. I get to take a bunch of classes, they give us free products (whoo-hoo) and they wine-n-dine us while we stay at the Contemporary Resort in Disney World. It should be a fun time. We will leave to come home after lunch on Saturday, so I'll be home in my bed hopefully by 2 am Sunday morning. I'll post a picture of my goodie stash when I get back!

** I really enjoyed reading a friend of mine's blog this morning. She's got some good words to live by today.

Enjoy today!

Busy Week

Wow, I'm tired. I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster that just won't stop. I have so many different things going on all at the same time and it's wearing me out. I'm going up to see my mom & dad tomorrow in Paducah and I'll spend Thanksgiving with them. Joey and Adam will come up on Thursday just in time to eat, then they will go on to Joey's family's house to eat again, and I'll come home to spend some kind of time with Christian. She has to work at KMart on Thanksgiving day from 7 am-1 so she isn't able to come with us. But my good friend, Debbie McGowan, graciously invited her to come over and spend a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner with them. Christian is very excited about that....could be because Debbie has 3 sons!
After Thanksgiving I will work Friday & Saturday and I know it's gonna be busy! I teach classes Monday & Tuesday nights, then Wednesday morning (2 am) I leave for Florida for a scrapbook industry educational workshop thing. I'll be back on Sunday night. Have to work Monday and then teach that same night. I have all of my classes already prepared, which makes me feel very organized. But, now can you understand why I'm tired. Too many things going on. I just want to get off the ride and sit and watch for a while.
Today is a special day. Can't tell you why just yet. But maybe soon I'll be able to relax and get off that silly rollercoaster.

It's A Great Day!

Today has been a great day. I had a class this morning but then I came home and worked in my scrapbook room with the radio on...very therapeutic, renewing, fun. It's unusual for me to be all alone at home. Lillie's at Preschool and Joey's at meetings, so it just me. I love it. I've been scrapbooking just for me...no design team projects...no classes...just me. Above is what I've created so far. I've got about 30 more minutes until I have to pick up Lillie, so I'll let you know what else I can get done.

Postscript: Nov 2 10:03 pm:
I got this one done after Lillie went home tonight. I'm really pleased with it.
