Welcome to a day in my life. I can't guarantee that this will be an exciting read for anyone. My life is filled with all the mundane activities of a stay-at-home-mom just trying to raise her three sons to be the best men they can be.

Another List

A few of the blogs that I've read today had lists, so I think I'm just going to jump on that bandwagon and share one too (partly because I love lists, and partly because I'm feeling rather lazy and uninspired.)
-Well, I already started it I guess. Lately I've been feeling kinda blah and uninspired by things. I need to give myself a big kick in the pants and put on my big girl panties and just get back on that horse (how's that for a run on cliches?)

-one of my first boards that I ever became part of may be closing in a month or so. I've been on the board for 8 years. It's the end of an era for me.

-I'm really busy (too busy) right now trying to get things ready for the next Scrapbooking Retreat that I run twice a year. This retreat seems to be a lot of work for me, and I'm not really enjoying it anymore so I'm thinking that it's time to pass the torch along to someone else to run.

-Spring is here, finally. The weather is great around here this week. It's so nice to see the neighbourhood come alive again and everyone emerging from their hibernation

-We have grubs! ...and we have racoons that are visiting our lawn everynight and ripping up pieces of sod to get at the grubs. We need to get our lawn sprayed. Unfortunatly we can't use chemicals anymore, so the spray they put down is actually a parasite that attacks the grubs. Ewwww!
-We got a call the other night telling us that our trailer has been broken into. The perps left the door wide open so I'm sure there's water damage inside along with whatever damage the perps left and any critters that came exploring left. We will have to make a trip up there this weekend to check it out.

-I'm spending the day on Saturday with my girls scrapbook shopping and then working on some retreat stuff. We're shopping at the Scrapping Bug. I love that store.

-My local scrapping store is up for sale. Someone I know is wanting to purchase it. I really hope that it works out for her because she could do so much with it.

-A new Scrapbooking store opened up in Oakville. Yay! I haven't checked it out yet, but a friend of mine is working there. It sounds like it will be a great store when it's all set up.

-I participated in an online crop this weekend. I was quite motivated on Saturday to scrapbook and got a few layouts done. Sunday I didn't get anything done as we were busy most of the day.

Here's some of what I've done lately:


  1. The break-in at the trailer sucks!

  2. The tree fort...guys' territory.

  3. Again your layouts are great. The 50's themed retreat must have been a blast, I hope someday to meet friends that love that kind of stuff, you are so lucky to have great friends.
