September 28, 2007've gotta read this!

I've updated the blog. How do you like the new look?

Would you like to see some of my recent work? I thought so!

I haven't spent too much time scrapping lately. My body's told me to rest and I've listened. ;o) Hoping for a quiet weekend ahead and LOTS of scrapping. I'm going to be working with Tinkering Ink's Botanical Bliss collection. YUM!

I will also be working on October's ad inspiration challenge for ScrapFriends. Stay tuned!

I overheard Korbin talking to Katie last night as he was jumping into the shower and she was getting dressed after hers. It went something like this:

Korbin: You get hair down there ya know...

Katie: No you don't.

Korbin: Uh huh...I saw daddy's.

Um...OMG...I'm not ready for THIS yet. What next??

For those that are wondering, Hubby's school is going very well (hard, but well). It has been hard on me not having him home three nights out of the week too. It's been less liberating than if he just went on a vacation or something. :D Now I've got lots of obligations to deal math homework and fussy end-of-day attitudes. LOL!

I was extremely touched this afternoon by a recent speech given by Dr. Pausch on September 18, 2007 at Carnegie Mellon University. Dr. Pausch's "last lecture" is truly his last. The 46-year old father of three young children was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer with a three to six month life expectancy. The way that he faces his limited future is very inspiring. Please read the article from the Wall Street Journal and if you have the time, watch the full video. Amazing.

THURSDAY THOUGHTS - Scrappy Thoughts From the Buffet Line

For those who were rooting for call from October Afternoon. I was disappointed when the new DT was announced but quickly felt okay with not getting a call. I sincerely want to find a company that's a great fit for me, and me for them. If they don't like my style for whatever reason that's just not going to be a fruitful relationship.

I won't let one tiny missed call stop me though. I still have my sights set high and have been pursuing them all in little ways over time. There are three big companies that I feel best fit my style: BasicGrey, Scenic Route and My Minds Eye. I've been in touch with two of them on numerous occasions over the last couple of years. Lately I'm really liking Sassafras Lass too. If a DT opening comes up you know I'll be applying!

I've been in a scrappy crunch this week after feeling sick Sunday and Monday. When I don't even feel like scrapping you know it's time to worry. I was so tired I took two naps on Sunday and slept 3 1/2 hours Monday morning after the kids were off to school. I think it's the withdrawal effects of Seroquel which I weaned and then stopped taking about two weeks ago. I'm feeling better now and am happy to kick one drug to the curb.

Now I'm playing catch up. It could just feel like a puppet show because Hubby started school this week. He's gone three nights a week. When I get home from work we have enough time to say "hi" and "bye" before he's off to class. It is an unsettling feeling, especially when we are so family oriented. I am already wishing for the next year to go quickly.

The kids are doing very good in school and seem pretty eager to go every morning. It's been really nice. I'm crossing my fingers that this will continue.

I was treated to lunch at Pizza Hut (my choice) by several coworkers today to celebrate my birthday earlier this month. Yum! I was about to fall asleep at my desk about an hour after eating though. Good stuff.

I want to thank my scrappy friends for stopping by and leaving comments. It really makes my day!
