What have I been up to today?
Okay, this is going to be more of a personal update but I just felt like sharing a bit about my life today. I hope you don't mind. :) Today was my 12 year old's first cross country race. They only ran 1 mile but this is quite an accomplishment for our family. When I was her age I couldn't even run 1 mile at all. I was kind of a quitter at that age and would give up easily. She finished the race and that is the most important part. Now that my hubby and I are marathon runners I am so happy that our children are picking up the sport at such a young age. There is such a great feeling of accomplishment when you finish something you have been working towards and set your mind to. I am so very proud of her. She was getting a little discouraged when she finished because she felt like she was one of the last ones to cross the finish line. Do you know what I told her? I said that the most important part of that entire race for her was that she DID finish! We are going to set personal goals for her so that she can try to beat her own personal best.
My daughter is on the left in the picture below. Look at her sprinting towards the finish line!
My 3 boys had to entertain themselves somehow. We were there for what seemed like a long time. Don't you just love how my 8 year old is wearing my Cricut glasses upside down? He said that he is a bug! LOL!
After we returned home from the race I was in an organizing mood. I finished cleaning out our major hotspot in our house, which is the treadmill/music room. I also got the bug to organize My Pink Loft AGAIN!! I put my crates with my millions of Stampin' Up! stamps away. I just don't use them as much anymore now that I use my Cricut and my own line of stamps. Of course, I couldn't completely put them away, they are just in the storage room that is attached to my office. Still in arms reach. :) After the crates were gone I realized that I don't like the BIG blank space on my wall so I went to Hobby Lobby to get some material, batting, and ribbon. Then off to Lowe's to get a 2 x 3 3/4 board. I decided that I would make a HUGE display board to add the awesome cards that you guys send me every week! I want to look at them every day! :) My husband actually got involved with this project and we decided that I need to go and get a different type of board because this one is too hard to use a staple gun with. So...... I will be off to Lowe's and Hobby Lobby again on Monday to start all over.
Tonight, after I cleaned up my Loft a bit, I had to start getting ready for my trip to Craft's Direct next Friday! I am teaching 3 classes and bringing 150 make & takes with me that I need to have packaged and ready to go for everyone. That is what the picture is below. Some of my organized chaos. This upcoming week is going to be CRAZY! I have so many deadlines and things coming up. Wish me luck on keeping my ducks in a row!
