My evening...

I spent time with Nini tonight, just shopping and hanging out. Dangerous, as I went to a new Scrappin' store (Scrapbook Pantry) and then Michael's. Nini and I decided to begin a 365 Day Challenge - scrapbook of a photo-a-day for a year! It will be fun. I found some lovely paper and a great scrapbook that I may get next week. As it is already into January, we are going to start Feb. 1. Isn't that just like me...a day late and a dollar short, I think the saying is. I feel like I am always playing catch up. life!

Another day....

Another day of work. Another day that I would rather be doing something else.

If I could be at home, what would I do? Hmmm...

I would do my dishes and tackly Mt. Washmore. I am so sick of laundry. But, how can I be sick of it if I never do it?!?!? I don't know how that works.

I would rather be in my craft room. If I could lock myself in there, life would be perfect. I can hide out and avoid all else.

As I sit here and avoid work, I realize I am only making it more painful. Get up and go to work!

I have found a blogger that I will be swapping with. I am quite excited. I will post when I receive the package. More later!
