A good feeling!

So this week we have been swamped with Basketball games...2 games Saturday, 2 games Tuesday, 3 games Friday and 2 games yesterday! Needless to say we are ready for a break. The games were in Lexington yesterday so we stayed a while and made a day of it. Emma had a friend stay with us, we went to lunch then a little shopping then dinner. All in all a very good day with our teen daughter. On the way home, we were all just talking and singing and being silly and I heard my daughters frined say "I wish my parents were as cool as yours"! I have to admit that it brought a smile to my face and a good feeling to my heart. You always hear that the teen years are terrible but I have to say so far so good for us. I love that her friends are comfortable around us and that she doesn't mind us being around.

Well, we have 2 more games tomorrow (yes, even on a Holiday) so I'm off to clean this sad neglected home of mine! I hope you all are doing well!!!!!

My only creative project in FOREVER!

This is a paper bag album I did for one of my daughters friends for his birthday. Since I have 3 girls I found it very difficult to produce something non girly. This is my attempt at masculine. He and his family really liked it so that's all that matters.

I'm back! I hope!

I have missed blogging so much and I have been able to occasionally check everyones blog during my break. Above you will see the 4 amazing people that have consumed all my time! Between the Holidays, never ending Basketball games for Emma, A new photography class through New York Institute, A nasty Virus that attscked all of us, subbing for the school that I love, some work issues, and some health issues, I have had no time to myself!

I think the year 2009 I am going to focus on ME! I have realized that I don't give myself enough attention, I don't take enough time to make myself feel special. I have put myself LAST on my long list and I am gonna try to make some changes. Pray for me, I am feeling very stretched but I know my God is in control!

I hope to be able to post regularly again but you never know. Thanks for sticking with me and I love you all!
