I've been terrible at blogging lately, I know. Last week I promised that I would update everyone on what's been going on around here so here it is:
-John is now finished work. Last week was his first week home. He wants to take a couple of months off before getting back into working, so for now he's a man of leisure. That's been going OK. He seemed a little lost last week but he quickly cured that by going out and buying himself a satelite dish. He's been busy rewiring the basement so it can be hooked up.
-the house painting continues. Last week I got the family room done and all the trim in the family room and kitchen. Now that John's home, he can pitch in to help!
-I've got another scrapbooking retreat coming up in two weeks so I have been busy getting that organized. Mostly everything is done. I've got to organize my own stuff for that now.
-we had a busy weekend last weekend with two family get togethers on top of the Easter and Good Friday Church things on. I was exhausted by the end of the weekend.
-The girls are planning the second anual scrapping getaway. Last year we went to Quebec City for the week. This year we have a gorgeous 7 bedroom cabin booked in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. It looks fabulous. I don't think September could get here soon enough.
-Matt's anxiety has sky-rocketed and we don't know why. He's shutting down at school and being difficult at home. I really wish there was something I could do. I feel really helpless. It's so tough to watch your child go through something like this. I just wish life was easier for him. His Paxil has been increased, but so far no relief. I really don't want to go through another medication change as that's really hard on him, and the rest of the family.
-through all of this I've managed to get some scrapping time in at home. These are some of my recent layouts.
