always emotional today.....

Don't know if its the weather or my age but I"m like a rollercoaster....
half happy , half sentimental....

we are going to lunch and then if I want to have cake, I'll be baking one later :( lol
I think we are spending the afternoon picking out paint.... YIppeee!!!!!!!! just kidding....
maybe I'll scrap a little, hopefully take a nap...
the other day while everyone was out, momma spent the day sending off christmas gifts (they all went out!!!!!!) , getting my drivers liscence renewed and I actually really like the pic of myself!, and then I had some time so went over to merle norman which just opened up in garden city in cranston... such a nice little shopping area, (pottery barn, gap, j jill, coldwater creek, ) all the yuppity type shops i love and I bought myself some lip pencils and makeup ... go me! its been a long time!lol
so that was sort of like my birthday present to myself...
off to get more coffee....
thanks so much for all the well wishes everyone...
have a great sunday!
and
happy birthday to my LOAD friend Marci !!!!

Feeling more caught up




PLasterers are out again today to "whiten" our walls! lol

Will post pics later...

Jon and I did the christmas shopping thing yesterday while the chickens were in school and pretty much finished up our kids and neice and nephews... feels great to get it out of the way!
I have no idea what I'm buying for the teachers .... this is such a stressful thing... only two for erins school this year, but I have to get ryans 5 teachers/aides, therapists, special ed bus drivers, etc. etc.... it really adds up and i try to buy them something practical...
last year i made homemade crackers and they were nice but took up as much time and money as it would if i just made one shopping trip so who knows... but there is time for that...
now if only i could get motivated to start my cards!
lol

here are some things I have working on for my dt...
have a great day everyone!
