last day

Today was the last day for my current Project 365. I am so proud of myself that I did not miss a single day this time around. Of course, like last time, I am a little late in uploading my photos. Four months isn't too bad is it? So far I have uploaded 242 photos. Only 123 to go! Here are the last 2 that I uploaded tonight.

I keep trying to decide if I want to immediately start another year (of photos) or take a break. I guess it all depends on how I feel tomorrow. I was thinking of maybe a fun (and musical) month long project.

Although I didn't accomplish anything creative this past weekend, I did happen to find oodles of creativity out there on the World Wide Internets. I found tons of new blogs that I probably will never find time to read that I was pretty excited to see. But I will post more on that later or maybe tomorrow, or the next day.

It was supposed to be a creative night

It started with the network going down at work. The boss decided to send us home. I have NO problem with leaving work 3 hours early. No problem at all. I still have not unpacked all my crafty stuff so I thought tonight would be the perfect time to do just that. I thought maybe I could accomplish something crafty before the weekend ended. I worked at it for a bit and then I got distracted. I ended up on the computer, while the husband (and his friend) played Army of Two.

So far it was a nice evening. Then the phone calls started. Every night we have been getting multiple calls requesting money for various organizations. Every. Night. I am still not used to us having an answering machine. It has been years since we have had one. I really need to remember to let the machine pick up the calls. Especially since one of the calls was the husband's co-worker calling to say he forgot (again) to set the alarm at work and if the husband could go and set it. Sigh. So since the guys were in no shape to drive, guess who had to. I have to say that I was pretty surprised at the amount of traffic. I guess it has been awhile since I have been out of the house on a Friday night.

Once we were out and about we realized we were hungry. The line at Taco Bell was just way too long and what we thought was a Lucky Wishbone, wasn't. So Mama's it was!

And that is about it for my "creative" night. I hope that I can do better tomorrow.

it's been a month

It has been one month (and a couple of days) since we moved into our house. I cannot believe that it has already been that long. Some days it feels like no time at all has passed and others it feels like it has been a long time. We are pretty much all moved in and settled. Well except for my crafty stuff. I was so busy unpacking the rest of the house that I had to wait to unpack the good stuff.

Now we just need to decorate. But first we need to find a painting, some kind of art for the walls, then we can go from there. We have been looking for years now and have found nothing we could both agree on . . . although, there are a few paintings I saw recently that could be a possibility.

It has been a busy month. First the move, then the unpacking, and then the re-arranging (because I just can't make up my mind on where to put stuff). We have already had our first plumbing emergency and our first family gathering (10 humans, 2 cats, 1 dog). All this and we haven't made our first mortgage payment yet.

The place is starting to feel a bit more like home with each day that passes. Even the cats (for the most part) are getting comfy. At least we no longer have to deal with the exorcist kitty. Now that was a joy, NOT!

I am looking forward to the time when I actually have some time. It seems like all I do now is clean. Is it just me or do Swamp Coolers make everything much more dusty and gritty? No sooner is something is wiped down, it gets re-covered in dust and needs to be cleaned again. I am not used to having to clean my stove multiple times a day, especially when it has not been used.

I am looking forward to the decorating, and even more visits from family. I am so happy to finally have a place that is actually large enough to entertain. Now I just need to do it, instead of just talking about it.

Family.....gotta love 'em!

Goodbye CMK

Not being as much of a scrapper as I used to be, I have not really been out there checking out the sites. I found out today that the one site where I actually felt comfortable is closing. Honestly though, I have not really been there all that much lately and mainly have been using the site for my gallery. What with Facebook, and the move, and Facebook, and work, and Facebook.....I have been keeping myself busy with everything NON scrapping related. The last couple of days I have been working at unpacking all my supplies. I am looking forward to actually using all the stuff I have purchased over the years. I am looking forward to getting out there again, looking forward to participating and looking forward to uploading my stuff.

Any ideas on good friendly scrapping sites? Main emphasis being "friendly".

On a good note....I updated my blog template. What do you think? Do you like it? There were a few problems with it but I managed to work them out. It made me feel very smart today. Now I wonder what "smart" thing can I do tomorrow?
