This is going to be sooo fun. And doing digital means a lighter packing job! heehee
Might not have to check any luggage! It will be summer so just light and airy clothes. Fun times! I can't wait! Now to just find a sub for work...ugh....mission impossible.
Anywho...that's my news for the day. It's a super crappy weather day here so I think I will head to our school play. They usually do a great job but I haven't heard much about this years yet so I am not sure. I can't even remember the name of the play. yikes...what am I doing to myself! heehee Gotta support our students though no matter what. And I am sure Zander will do this when he gets older. He loves doing plays/skits. I'm not sure he's really my child. This coming from the girl who hates to get up in front of anyone.
Have a great Sunday.

Parent Group provided the funds for his visit and it was the best money we have spent in a long time! I am thrilled that our music teacher got him here! I would love to have him back again. If you are looking for a wholesome, educational, and even Green form of entertainment....check him out! He's local Michigan Boy too! Which makes it even more special!
Do me a favor and go peek at his site and trust me, if you have the funds, you should get his CHILDREN OF THE EARTH CD. It's soooo cool! And educational but don't tell the kids and they will love it even more! wink wink!

I have talked about it long enough and I am going to take action. I have promised myself that I would get to one of my dear friends retreats no matter what and now is the time. She opened up a summer one and this finally fits my schedule. So myself and Bev are going to fly out and just do it! A girls ONLY weekend!!! Wahooo....who's coming with us?

well, I am ready for Spring. I am so ready to move forward with Life in general. I can't let the bad stuff consume my every thoughts. I was just sitting here at the table thinking about life in general and I decided to open up photo shop and this is what happened.
I used the Ettes and Company for the top layout and mostly Sine's stuff on the bottom one. It was from ScrapOrchards blog train earlier in the week. I am ready for change.
We got some bad news with my MIL and I am not really sure I can process it all right now. It is so frustrating to me that we have to go thru all this crap again. It brings up a lot of rotten memories from my Grandpa too. It scared me to think that another person I love almost as much as life itself has cancer now too. I truly wish I could fix the world and make it so NO ONE ever has to go thru it.
So I need your continued prayers for my MIL and my Step Mom. Both are battling breast cancer and need all the prayers they can get from across the globe.

I worked at the school all day today to help out while MIL was out. Ate lunch with the boys at school too. It's good to have that special time with them one on one sometimes. We had some major thunder roll through today but not too much in the line of rain yet. Looks horrid outside though so I am sure it's coming.
I have been working on a few layouts for Friday release date. Kristin Aagard had the cutest Gotta Grab It pieces coming to GottaPixel and Krystal Hartley had done another collab with a Wild West theme to it. Both kits are totally different but I love them both. I am so excited for you to see Kristin new "kit". I say kit but it will be available in pieces for the normal Gotta Grab It stuff.
I am loving my CT's right now. Gosh I am so lucky to be where I am currently. See...so many great things to be thankful for. Oh....I know something else...my sister called me last night. She is pretty sure she found a place to hold her wedding. (pinch me) I Still am in SHOCK that my sister is getting married. Seriously...NEVER did I think it would happen! LOL We are constantly talking about Wedding things together. I love it! Now...need to hit the gym hard! lol
Anyone have any plans for this weekend? I don't really. Josh has a show sat. but we will just be 'hangin out' at home while he's gone doing his thing. It's nice to have that extra money coming in right now again. With the economy being what it is...he has slowed to a stop with shows lately. But then out of no where he has had a few each weekend.

My life is spinning out of control this week it seems and I have no way to stop it.
So any extra luck you all have to give is gladly accepted here!
I say that it is time for to a total life overhaul. I need to evaluate my priorities and evaluate whom I consider 'friends'. I put a lot of trust into my friendships. And I give it back in the same fashion. I have one situation right now that is just baffling me. And it breaks my heart. I truly thought I was a better judge of character than this too. So I will be very careful with my words around them from this moment forward.
This is all real life stuff...not online issues! LOL Why is that my online friends are better to me than my real life ones?? Am I that rotten of a human that I deserve to be treated so bad to my face or technically behind my back if you want the real truth of the matter. Grr... I am not perfect by any means I can't remember a time when I EVER claimed to be. I am usually the first one to give up my faults and shortcomings. But if I tell you something in confidence, it is to remain that way. You do not use that information for your own gain. That is NOT FRIENDSHIP. That is dishonesty. Lying. Betrayal. Call it what you want but the end result is PAINFUL. Thanks for nothing.

I am just praying they both have excellent outcomes and I refuse to let it get me down. We will fight the battle and win! I know it.
So if you have it in you, say a couple prayers for them. Pam and Maggie are their names. Keep them in your thoughts as they move through this difficult time towards a full recovery.

These are some pictures from the last scavenger hunt. But I just love the buildings. I love my town. There are days that you just have to go with the flow but when you really need the community they are there. We just a scary event happen with one of your young coaches and the community support from my town was amazing. They had to have felt very special and honored to live in a small community. It my town and I love it!

But here it is! My guess is that it will be a special price for the first 24 hours per usual. But again...just a guess on my part. So don't be mad if it isn't!

Ok...So you must be scratching the ole bean and thinking...huh? Here's the back story:
Rachele (pronounced just like my name) is the assistant in our office. I have known here for about 7 or 8 years. We worked in another office together as well. Well she couldn't make it to Chicago this year so we came up with the plan that we would make a "flat Rachele" a spin off of the Flat Stanley character to take with us. I had to give it a test run by taking her with my sister and I to Ikea a couple weekends ago too. So you can see her adventures here. She went to Ikea, stayed at my house, and then off to Chicago (those pictures yet to come). All these layouts are done using the Ettes lastest kit called Blue Sky.

There...that's my PSA for Dental for the week! LOL I don't talk to you all about my REAL Job very often do I? Of course, what is there to say? Can you believe the smell that came out of their mouth? Think of mothballs and rotten meat. Welcome to my world people!
