Life as a reformed Zookeeper. Now living a life as a working mother who dabbles in karate, scrapbooking, and Coors Light!

hard to believe that it's been nearly a week since my last post! LOL i'm not all that interesting, really....LOL i've really been a busy lady, too....

Thanksgiving went well....Erin and Griffin behaved rather well at Aaron's Aunt and Uncle's house....they live in a posh neighborhood nearby, and have so many breakables and nice things that we were all a bit nervous to go over there. i was also relegated to the basement for a while with the babies....oh, joy! LOL After a while, I told Aaron that I could watch my babies at home and get a nap on the couch just as well as in their basement, if not better. Everyone got my point and we were allowed back upstairs...ROFL

I got up early and did my part to fill the stores with people. I went to Michael's and bought the Slab IV, which I've been coveting since I first saw it. I lurve it, to use another person's phrase! hehe....I also bought some bobbins to organize the fibers that I have....I didn't realize how much I'd bought/accumulated until I went to wind them all on those little bits of plastic and cardboard! Oh, well...I've realized that I really don't need to leave my scrapcloset to have a good time! tee hee

Also over the weekend, I realized that I hit my 200 page goal for the year!! Can I tell you how proud of myself I am?? LOL Yes, people, my life has become judged by how many pages I can create a year! ROFL...But I'm very proud. Roll scrapbook wagon, roll!

My mom and stepdad paid us a surprise visit on Saturday. I didn't really anticipate their visit, but it was good, so I won't complain. I hadn't heard from her since my birthday, or shortly after, so I was wondering when I was going to get the call. Turning up on my doorstep was better. It's still very hard for me to feel close to her. And seeing that I really want that with my kiddos, it drives a bit of a knife in me to know that I'm likely to never have that with my own mom. And the older I get, the more I see that I don't think I really want that in the first place. Well, anymore. If it would have been started a long time ago, I would welcome it. But she didn't do her part then, so it's not going to happen now. And I'm finally OK with that, even if it does give me a heartache occasionally.

I've decided to get back on the Flylady bandwagon, at least to a certain extent....I really want to get a handle on my life. I know that I've a big problem with procrastination, and it really bogs me'm dusting off the control journal. And Aaron's been helping me along...he stripped the bed this morning. It takes five of us to mess up the house, it should take more than one to get it clean again. We shall see......
