sometimes i wonder

why i even suffer with a blog. i never update here and readership is low. of course maybe it would be higher if i posted more. ha!

news news news...

well if you haven't heard i've been asked to be a simple gal for simple scrapbooks magazine. what does this mean? well i'll be posting layouts in the simple studio gallery, i'll be published more regularly in the magazine, and i will be a trusted adviser to the magazine. i'm thrilled - this is my own personal hof folks. it also gets me off the hook in terms of hof and mmm as well - i'm exclusive to simple for one year.

on the homefront, we have refurnished and decorated our living room. we still need a few pieces, but it's starting to come together. as well, terry started the powder room. he painted and installed a new toilet. he has to install the sink and mirror. then it will be curtain and shower curtain hanging time. this was our mini-remodel because we have guests coming for thanksgiving.

kids are doing well. sam is not transitioning into his new room all that well. he has a temper and hits sometimes when other children do him wrong. adam is loving school. he seems to have settled right in - having the same teacher again doesn't hurt.

have a great day! :)

'bout freakin' time you updated your blog. :wink: i so need to get off my laptop and do something else!

you know how truly thrilled i am for you about being a simple girl. you still remember me...right? now that you're famous? :wink:

oh...it sounds like sam and alexander could be related. little zan man has quite the temper himself. i fear what will happen when the little man starts school.

yeah. i'm going upstairs now. to pretend i'm scrapping. at least i'll be off the computer.

With all that wonderful news about being a simple gal and getting a mini makeover of your bathroon, you sound like your on a downer !! Hope you are not worn out with all this excitement.

I love checking into your blog and saying hello and while I don't count for much of a huge fan club, you know I love your stuff and if you have to swap with me for a while some of your fantastic scrapping opportunities you know I'll be there at the drop of a hat to help - a friend has to do what a friend has to do, right ? Anyway, big congratulations to you and I'm glad to see you on the blog again. (sounds a bit like on the plonk again don't you think) - now I'm sounding a little delerious too - late night for me.
