Had a lovely weekend

-Made a painted-handprint t-shirt w/Alison for Father's Day. She was so proud to give that shirt to him.
-Cleaned my car (w/Alison's help) in preparation for my trip on Thursday. (I realized this morning that I need to redo some of the parts that Alison did. :) )
-Started (barely) "The Girls from Ames" by Jeffrey Zaslow. Really excited about this book!
-Cooked a big breakfast on Sunday morning, for Father's Day.
-Went to the duck pond to feed the ducks, and then went to get ice cream Sunday afternoon.
-Started packing for trip. Have made a fair amount of progress so far.
-Oh yeah, and finished importing songs from ALL of my CD's onto my IPod. I'm listening to stuff from high school that I haven't heard in years!

Just a nice, simple weekend. I like those.

Had a wonderful weekend - scrapped with Steph and Ashley on Sat. Hanging out with good friends makes me happy. Stayed home on Sunday - haven't been home all day in a couple of months, so it was nice. Played "Hungry, Hungry Hippos" and "Chutes and Ladders" with Alison, & we grilled out that night.

-Reading a good book right now, called "The Middle Place" by Kelly Corrigan. I'm about halfway through.

-Tried to close someone's blog today, after reading it, and I swear, about 25 windows popped up, and wouldn't let me close them. I had to shut down my computer. Weird.

-Got a sweet note from my husband this morning. He's working out of town, so it was a nice surprise to have when I got to work today.

-Having food day at work today. Here's a good recipe for Hot Pizza Dip that you might like.

Sooooo glad it's Friday. Really.

This has been a long week. Not much rest (at all), and a 3-yr-old w/extreme mood swings. She's spending the night at my mom's tonight, so I'm hoping to go out for a few margaritas with my DH, and then hopefully get some sleep tonight. I'm really looking fwd to tomorrow, too - Ashley and Stephanie are coming to scrap for a while at my house!....And then maybe Jon, Alison, and I will do the zoo on Sunday. (Steph, I need to get you that pressed penny!)

My first blog post

For the longest time, I resisted starting a blog - for what reason, I'm not really sure.....But the idea is interesting to me, so I decided to give it a try. I'm gonna make an effort to keep up with it...... And I'll add pics as soon as I have some time at home.
