I'm so ready to make Christmas Crafts

So, I spent most of the day today unpacking boxes of Christmas Crafts. You know - all those glittery pipe cleaners and pom poms, little wooden thingies you can paint or cover with paper, little teeny ornaments, buttons and more! WOW - I got about a gajillion ideas for gifts and decorations! Tons of these things were really cute and I thought of some cute stuff I could do - but then I saw jingle bells and buttons .................. wait for it ................. with polka dots!! Red, Gold and Silver bells with white polka dots. Red, Gold and Silver round buttons (two sizes) with polka dots. AND stars in red, gold and silver - with polka dots. I mean, seriously - I love polka dots! They were oh so cute! I almost wish we could fast forward through the rest of August, the beginning of September (with a brief pause around the 18th of September for my b'day), then go ahead and fast forward until right before Halloween. I mean, I love decoration for Halloween, too - but DANG the Christmas stuff was so cute!!!

So anyone else out there start working on Christmas crafts when it's still really hot outside? And Christmas is really still far away? I'm I the only one?

A great week usually starts with a great weekend

This past weekend I managed to swing a trip to Villa Rica for the Sweet Memories Birthday Bash Crop. Before pulling out of town, I started to feel the feeling in the back of your throat - when it hurts to swallow a bit and then your nose is a bit runny and you just have a headache you can't get rid of! UGH! Well, Saturday was worst - I felt horrible - but weathered the storm and really enjoyed hanging out with girlfriends and scrapbooking. I did several layouts and worked on a few little mini albums (photos to come - later). The event was awesome! Lots of fun - lots of little special touches. It was great. Slept a bit better Saturday night and felt a little better Sunday. Has some fun taking pictures Sunday morning with the girls. Scrapped some more. And then we headed home!

Monday, I really still felt crappy. Not as stuffy but my cough was terrible and then my back started hurting. Again - UGH! I hate colds. Had a nice meeting Monday evening with Cole's teacher. She's super! We're really lucky! Before the meeting, got a call from Michael's Art and Crafts. I had applied a while back but there weren't any current openings. Well, now there are openings - so I had an interview the next day! YAY!! And even better, got hired on the spot! Awesome!!

So, I start tomorrow! I'm super excited! Can't wait to get to work.

but for now, I'm going to rest up. My back is better, but I'm still coughing a wee bit today!

OH tomorrow night we'll be doing the Founders Day dinner with Ronald McDonald House. They are honoring Gene Stallings! (roll tide) So, I'm sure I'll be pooped by tomorrow evening! But, that's okay - a job is a great thing! And doing anything for the Ronald is amazing! Can't wait!

Today is the first day of Second Grade.

I can't believe we've finally made it to second grade. There are days that I really hate that Cole is growing up so fast, but then I remember what all he's been through and I'm just thankful he's growing up and accomplishing all these little things - like going to second grade. I can't wait to pick him up and hear about his day!!

I took pictures, but haven't uploaded them yet, I'll do that later today! Got lots to do this week - taking a little trip this weekend with some friends and have to get ready for that, too!
