BEAUTIFUL SNOW IN MY BACKYARD. JAN 2010.Snow is coming this week.
It will make me feel more justified in putting up my Christmas decor a month early.
No, I haven't decorated yet.
But I think I will in a week.
Maybe two if I can hold out.
I am very excited for the Wplus9 release this week.
More this month than others because I designed 2 of the 4 stamp sets!
I tried to make sets that would appeal to even the non-scrapper/stamper.
So excited to see others stamp with designs I created. Oh my. What a thrill that will be!
My sets will be released in a couple days. I'll keep you informed.
Despite that exciting news, I've been quite weepy this weekend.
Remember how I was sad? And then never fessed up to why?
(Don't you hate when bloggers do that?)
I'm ready to confess; my husband lost his job.
Yes, this whole bad-economy thing stinks.
Consequently, J decided to go back to school to get his third degree.
I'm feeling a little bit like a single mother right now.
Seeing him for one hour a day just doesn't cut it for me.
But, I'm sure it will be worth it in the end.
It better be.
I get to eat sugar today.
I don't know what to indulge in first.
My kids' Halloween candy is sitting on top of the fridge, out of their reach.
But cheap-o chocolate doesn't seem indulgent enough after a 3-month sugar fast.
I've been dreaming of Red Mango and chocolate cake.
Seriously, I have.
I eat one of those two things every night in my dreams.
It's been a nightmare, actually.
Cause I wake up worried that I've cheated.
I have a feeling that Red Mango will trump chocolate cake.
I teach the 6-7 year olds in my church.
Yesterday, we were practicing for our primary program.
One of the songs touches my heart every time we sing it.
And I get teary.
And the children in my class ask me why I'm crying.
And I tell them their singing is just so beautiful.
You can hear the song here.
It is powerful.
Especially when being sung by darling kids.
To make ourselves laugh, we've been watching this.
I can't tell you how many times I've watched it.
To quote my mother about the commercial:
"The popcorn was the coup de grâce."
It never gets old.
In fact, I think I'll watch it again right now.
