Wowzers, it has almost been a MONTH since I've blogged. I hope all of you have had wonderful holidays and have recovered from them better than I have. lol I love the holidays but they just wear me out. I am slowly (VERY slowly) getting things back to normal. hooray!
Before I move on to my big news...here is a little project I did at the iScrap cybercrop last weekend. I made it with the new Lucky line from Rusty Pickle...isn't it scrumptious paper? Unfortunately I wasn't able to be online as much as I wanted - so I'm afraid I don't have a lot to show for myself. This make and take was posted by Nancy and she had a way cute sample too!
So I guess the biggest news from Christmas is my new toy... a MacBook Pro. Tom completely surprised me - I know I have mentioned before how much I wanted a Mac for my next computer - but I didn't expect it for Christmas at ALL. And I will go ahead and say it now.... I LOVE MY MAC!!!!! There has been a slight learning curve and getting familiar with different ways of doing things, but I can tell you that this thing is amazing. I see the iPhone on TV and am amazed at how utterly cool that thing is. I don't need one - but that doesn't change the fact that it is just plain cool! Well, imagine all those nifty ways of doing things on a computer. This baby ROCKS. There are a few things that I have yet to figure out - and actually, a few that I've been told I won't be able to do. I print all my photos here at home and I like to get the most out of my photo paper so I am used to printing something then putting the paper back in to print another possibly odd sized photo on the same sheet. I am used to dragging the photo wherever I want on the paper and being able to print it. Well, I can't do that on the mac - at least not with the programs I have or am trying out (Aperture). I'm wondering if that is possible in Light Room or something. I need to do some investigating.
The girls are back in school and doing some fun projects. Jessica made butter at her pre-K yesterday. I couldn't believe it. Too funny. Sadly though, we were meeting a friend for lunch after I picked her up so her personal little baby food jar full of butter didn't get refrigerated right away. Lindsay got her report card today and slipped from Excellent to Satisfactory in Math - but hello....I can't even believe the kinds of things they expect 6-7 year olds to learn in math these days. I personally think she is doing great and she keeps saying that she loves math - and that's what I love to hear (because truthfully - I stink at it!). I bought her a couple 'chapter books' at the store the other day. These are her first and she's loving them. I'm so proud of her.
It is getting late and if don't go get dinner for the girls they are apparently going to shrivel up and waste away. You know - since I never feed them or anything. Of course I am totally kidding - don't call the authorities on me. The girls eat non-stop it seems, but when I don't jump up and make them dinner right away they put on their drama queen crowns and start workin' me. lol Ok - I PROMISE that I'll be getting back to normal here and back to blogging. I kind of needed a break from the computer for a bit. I've missed it terribly - but I have truly enjoyed the time I've had with my family.
