I don't think I can make it through a week without a random, all-over-the-place post. That's exactly how I'm feeling this week--scattered all-over-the-place.
Where to begin?
Well, it's the sixth day of March, and as my son told me this morning, it has snowed here 50% of this month. Three of the last six days have been snowy and COLD. I am very anxious for the arrival of spring. I'll likely be waiting until the end of May. Sigh.
I've been busy this week. Not crazy-busy like I was the week before the flu hit our house, but good-busy. I'm almost finished delivering Girl Scout cookies! Woohoo! I'm working on the yearbook at the kids' school. It's a big job, but I enjoy it for the most part. I'm also deactivating as a Creative Memories consultant so I've been busy filling existing orders, and finishing up some paperwork, and evaluating my inventory. I loved being a consultant, but I just couldn't keep up with all the new product, and somewhere along the way, my hobby became so intertwined with my business that I lost my love for scrapbooking. I'm hoping to rediscover the joy now that the pressure is off!
The kids don't have school again tomorrow. I say "again" because this is the 4th week in a row that we've had a 4-day week. That makes Thursday nights feel sorta like Fridays! I love that. I told John this morning that I am so thankful I can be at home with our kids because we have so many days off from school here! I know it's hard for my friends' who work to make arrangements for their kids.
Speaking of school, we only have 2 more weeks until Spring Break! I also need to get in party planning mode seeing as how Abbey and John both have an upcoming birthday. And then there's Easter. March is a happenin' month around here!!!
I'm not usually one to recommend movies because everyone is different, and I'd hate to tell you that a movie is wonderful only to find out you hated it or were offended by it. BUT, I'm breaking my own rule to tell you about one of my favorite movies. I watched it for the umpteenth time last Saturday night. It's called Strictly Ballroom. It's an older, independent film and I'd call it a dramedy. It's very funny and romantic, and really is one of my all-time favorites. Click on the link above for more info! There. I did it. I recommended a movie. If you watch it and hate it, please don't tell me!
Oh, I loved the idea you guys passed on for Family Day! Especially the ones about letting the kids choose. I hope to sit down with them soon and let them each pick an activity. Thank you for sharing your brilliance with me!
LOST is on tonight. It's crazy how much I look forward to that show. I still need to watch last week's episode. I'm going to try to fit that in later today. Not that I'll be caught up or anything. I'll probably be even more confused!
I'm running out of things to say and I really want to make some of this before the kids get home from school.
Let me share one more thing! I was so blessed by this post that my friend Julie wrote. Julie is the first internet-turned-real-life friend I ever made. She flew out here a couple of years ago to attend a Captivating conference with me, and another friend named Julie. Everything she writes is brilliant, but this post really struck a chord with me. Read it and be blessed.
