My Trip

Since there are only 30-something days left till we leave for Washington, I thought I'd make our reservations. We are getting very excited to go and see Grandma and Grandpa,and Uncle Rich! We will also be meeting Uncle Rich's girlfriend, Pamela, for the first time. I hope we don't scare her away!
I am also getting ready for my Mary Kay Holiday Open House this Sunday. I hope it goes well. My friends Erica, and Rhonda will be will me. Rhonda is a Cookie Lee jewelry lady, so we have two kinds of things to sell.
Today is my children's parent teacher conferences. I will be at the school from 1:45-3:15 because their conferences are all in a row! I hope they go well. I don't see any reason why they won't. I'll keep you posted!

My Art Class

Hello All~
I finally, after almost a year, finished my art class. It's a class you complete on your own at home. I have not been motivated to do this class. It's a class around using paper in various creative ways. It has been a dark cloud looming over me and is about to be lifted! Yippee! It's funny though, I don't feel that sense of relief yet. It will probably come when I receive my grade, unless it's a bad one. I have it in a priority mail envelope ready to be mailed on Monday. Anyway, instead of mailing the projects I had to send pictures of them. I thought I'd show you the highlights. Mom, sorry, this is a as creative as I get!

My sign about me.

The idea behind this art class is having new and unique art ideas for the classroom teacher. I liked, and would use, a few of them.

Oh, and I almost forgot, I got these pictures developed too. Enjoy!

Loose Ends..

Hello all (2 of you!)
I hope you are all doing well. I'm having a fabulous day! I had a great Mary Kay order today and some reorders. It was good. I also have gotten many small piddly things done that I've been needing to do. You know the things where you say, "It's not that important but I really need to do that." It feels good to get them done. The house cleaners also came which makes for a really good day. I'm not feeling constantly overwhelmed! Wow, it makes such a difference!
I have not been subbing much, which is okay with me, but Andrew has been working instead. He's been working many hours plus working on his Master's classes. He is a busy guy! I've been trying to get my construction paper class done (ick!), and I'm getting ready for a Mary Kay/Cookie Lee open house. It's more fun to do them with other people! I'm also sponsoring a tea party table for my Mom-in-law's Saints Alive luncheon. I have to set it with my china and tea pots. It should be fun. I'll try to post a picture of what it looked like. It is right up my alley, so I volunteered to do it. Tomorrow the kids have a day off of school so my sister and I are taking the kids to Madagascar 2. I like having fun things planned for no-school days!
Well, I hope you are all having a great day too!
