Wow...

I can't believe how big of a loser I am...(thanks for the subtle reminder Sarah :D) Two weeks have FLOWN by...it's been madness!
Remember the friend's house we were working on?? Well...we ended up having a TON of people join in the next week and the house just looks AMAZING! She returned home on Saturday and I really think she loved the house. She's a woman of few words...but the expression on her face told me enough. It was pretty exciting to see her get home and enjoy her family and "new" home!

I've still been working out...and it is going...I'm not sore anymore...but it still kicks my tushie! Sandi made me start doing sit-ups last week in between a few stations and those are KILLER!! Today is the 21st day, but it still doesn't feel like a routine...more like a horrible, disgusting chore :D

Derek was out of town the last two weeks, but he is back for the week...YAY!! We are all pretty excited about that. And he and Corbin went on the father-son campout Friday night at PanFork. They had an awesome time...Corbin said they ate like champions Saturday morning...that's pretty much all the information I got from him. HA!

We all have another busy week ahead of us...Remi had an appt this morning...She has to have her teeth cleaned in two weeks...EEK! I wish they didn't have to put them under for that...but I totally understand, she would be a total spaz! And then tonight we have small group. Tomorrow I have Bible study and an appt at the chiropractor and Corbin has his Math TAKS test (say prayers for him!!!)...Wednesday, Corbin has a hair cut, I have an eye appt, we both have to go to his musical practice and then AWANA'S for Corbin, FUEL and Elevate for Derek, Praise Team and Choir practice for me...Thursday the rest of the family has hair appts (We are ALL lookin' really shaggy...esp the boys...it's BAD!)...AND we are going to try to finish Corbin's room this week...We are getting rid of the bunk part of his bed and painting the furniture, putting up blinds and curtains, finish painting his camo border, and A LOT or organization. He is the most unorganized kid! Drives me crazy, but I try to let him have his space...but sometimes it just gets ridiculous!
Well, now that I've bored you with my weekly agenda...I'll move on :)

...uh...yes, scrappy stuff...

I have decided to do a RAK for NSD!! I don't have a picture put together, but I promise you will not be disappointed! Juliana asked a question last week about how many different ribbons we have...so I am actually going to count mine and I want you to guess how many I have...Just leave a comment with your guess and I will announce who was closest--over or under--on Friday. Good Luck!!!!!

I really haven't had any time to do much scrapping. What I've done, I can't show yet :( But here is my LO for this weeks sketch over at Triple the Sketch.

She is also doing a RAK for NSD. Be sure to check in this week so you can be eligible for the Prize!!
I'm sure I could say A LOT more...but I will end here...And just a little something to upset my wonderful husband...

I hope none of his Mass. friends see this...HEE HEE!

Blessings...

I should have guessed there would be ORANGE on your Layout! :) Let's see I think I sent an extra orange one to you... SO my guess is one hundred ninety ONE. Fun Rak!

God's Gal Sarah said...

And she updates! HA! Poor Corbin--I can just imagine how tough it must be to take the TAKS test. I've seen your scrap stuff--I'll guess 360 ribbons. I really don't know if I got it or not! I miss getting to talk to you. Between my missing choir and your praise team practice, we don't get to sit and chat anymore. :-(

So glad that Derek is home for little while. I know you must miss him while he's gone.

YOU GO GIRL on the exercise. I keep intending to go down to the dungeon and run on the elliptical--I sure need it. But unfortunately my good intentions rarely come to pass.

Well, I'd better tottle...
