Pressures On.....

Why is it that everytime "K" has an assignment at school it seems like she waits until the last minute. At what age do they actually take responsibility and do it themselves?? She has her monthly book report due on Monday and I have bugged her about it for two weeks now. Looks like we will be working on it tomorrow. I want her to understand how important it is in life to do things in advance so you are not stressed out at the last minute. I learned the hard way but it has taught me to be early for everything, including meetings & church. I want my kids to learn these same values. She is only in 3rd grade but I don't want to hold her hand the rest of her life.

Tonight we babysat for some friends so they could go on a date. My friend "R" has babysat for me all week for my appointments, etc. It was the least we could do. I don't mind at all. Her kids are really easy and "A" has someone to run around and play with.

Today I sat and stamped a lot! I am working on making sets of cards for my friends here & some church members. I think I am making around 50 sets of 6 cards this year. I think I am almost done, believe it or not. It's around 300 cards with matching envelopes that I end up making but I just love to stamp so much that I enjoy doing it. Plus, I just love how they love receiving them. I don't know what I will work on once I am done with this project. I have already finished my Christmas cards and birth announcements. I need to work on some journals for the Young Women, too. I guess I will do that next.

What is it about a clean kitchen that can make or break your mood?? I feel soooo good when I keep my kitchen clean. When it is dirty I just feel yucky inside and it makes me not want to clean it. I just finished doing the dishes and now I just need to wipe the counters. I'm sure this is very dull information but it is something I want to remember about me later. This is sort of like my journal now. Of course, I'll leave all the juicy stuff to my real journal but everything else will go on here.

  1. Hi Robyn I'm so glad you updated! I tried to call you but no one was home. I just wanted to see how you were doing, now I know. That's GREAT news you got from your doctor. I'm happy for you too :-)
    Can I come over someday and stamp like ten monkey cards just like the one you made? I love it!

  2. Shawna,

    I'll do better than that. I'll make you some fun monkey cards. I have designed a really cute one that says Happy Winter. It has the monkey juggling snowballs. I'm sure you will love it!!

  3. Robyn,
    I'm glad to hear things are going better as far as your pregnancy is concerned. :) I also wanted to commiserate about the dishes thing. I know just how you feel. My kitchen's a little messy right now and it is almost paralyzing to think of the work I have to do in there...I guess what I'm saying is that it's nice to know that I am not the only one that struggles in small ways like that. We sometimes get an idea that we have to be perfect in things (or that everyone else is perfect except for us) but the important thing is to just keep pressing forward and trying our best!Thanks for sharing that part of yourself too...

  4. Hey Robyn, I've got a kid just like your's! Always late, always putting assignments off, always running on his own speed. But he has the kindest heart and notices things the others miss in their hurry. Makes me wish I was a little more like him!

  5. Yes, Linda, she is the sweetest, caring child who notices different things. She is also very artistic, just doesn't like to be pushed.
