I Can Do Just One More Day.....

....this feels like it has been on eof the longest weeks ever. I'm not sure why, but it has. I'm feeling quite tired, but I think much of that has to do with the dreary weather.

....So I went to the Stampin' Up! lady's house last night and did a tin using their new line of paper. I'd been jonsing for the paper, so I'm so happy I got to go and use it finally! The tin is a card organizer for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I hope she likes it. I've been making some cards to put in it, and am actually liking most of what I've done. This isn't a very common occurance for me. I think this has more to do with low self-esteem than modesty, but I don't think much of what I do is magazine worthy or anything. Anyway, a-card-makin' I will go until I feel like I have a good present to hand over on Sunday.

....I'm hoping to get my behind on an elliptical trainer for an hour tonight. It's totally amazing to me how great I feel when I've put in an hour or so of exercise. I do not like, however, taking that much time away from the family at night. This is yet another reason on the long list of why I should get a job outside the home. I could wake up early and go to the gym and STILL have enough time to come home and help get the kids ready to go. Instead of now, where the first kidlet shows up at six, which leaves me not enough time to go work out in the morning.

....I'm officially down to 155, though, which makes for a happy Zookeeper. 20 more lbs. to go until I feel like a sexy beast again. We shall see! My goal is to be a good girl until Andrea's wedding ceremony, which is next May. I'm going to be put into a bridesmaid dress, so I figure I might as well look good! So exercise and dieting it is around here. Which is a good idea anyway, since I've gained about 25 pounds in my time as Zookeeper. YIKES!

....Anyway, happy Thursday to you all. Leave me some love. Peace out.

Aaron has been at only $180.00 for over 36 hours now. we've got to find you a few friends who can donate 10 bucks each. You should move the link to donate to the top so people can see it again.

My tin from Stamp Camp is too good to give away. It is the best I have ever made of all my tin things. You should sell them on ebay, my friend!
