Oh Happy Day !

Okay so today started off as a bit stressful. Had to clear my floors, vaccuum and prepare for the exterminator to come. Once I did that I had to leave the keys for him and not return until the end of the day. Yuck. I felt rushed and I still havent returned anyone's phone calls.

Posted by PicasaThen I went to school, bravely brought the boys with me and started organizing my classroom for the school year. The kids behaved wonderfully, I can't really complain,but getting my class room ready really put me in a funk. I can't believe that next Monday is the dreaded day. Sigh that bums me out. Anyway, then we went to Big Lots to buy some organizing tubs for my classroom. Cheap there and good brands. The boys were good too, except that they insisted on taking turns pushing the cart as the other directed the "driver' through traffic with hand signals and all. Too bad that didn't really help out since they kept on crashing into displays and other things. So that got me a bit worked up too. When I got into the car I felt like crying. Dumb..just stress. I luckily did not give into that stressor and just drove home feeling sorry for myself. I pulled into the driveway, parked, got the kids out and lo' and behold there were not one,but two packages in my mailbox...just for ME. Yippee...I suddenly got out of the funk...(however this is just temporary people) and brought those packages in. One of the packages was from a RAK that I won from Karen Wilson (from the unforgetables foundation) and the other was a set of Art warehouse stamps that I won off ebay on JULY 29th. I thought that they were for sure lost! Gosh I think those things came just in time...funny how things seems to come just at the right time!



Lastly I would like to leave you with this quote: "Mom did you know that the word for hello and goodbye is the same word in Hawaii...it is called "HELLO-HA". My teacher told me that today"

Nothing like scrappin' goodies to get one out of a funk! Hope the rest of your week is a little better :) I'm going to have to talk to you more about your hubby on the velodrome! I didn't know you were married to a cyclist!

Okay, so I just read your latest blog and just had a similar shopping experience tonight at Target with Ellie and Jake. They were crazy in the store and I totally felt like crying. It doesn't help that DH is gone 24/7 at work and I am trying to pack for a trip.
I LOVE the quote from Adam! So darn cute!
