The Nov/Dec issue of Scrapbooks Etc finally arrived today!!! I have been waiting for this for the last 2 1/2 months!!! I was so excited back in August when I got a call for a layout I submitted to them!! It was one of my scrapbook goals for the last 2 years to be picked up by Scrapbooks Etc and it happened!!! Here it is!! I still can't believe it's in there!! It's not the best picture, but I was too lazy to scan it!
This layout is so dear to me. It was my way of coping with my Grandmother's death, she died in January 2006. She made sure I had my fastnachts every year!!! I betcha she is smiling down on me right now!!
In preschool news, I hate to say this fearing I may jinx myself, but Jack has been good for the last 3 class days!!! I hope we have finally gotten over the hump!! He has made some friends in his class now, so I know that is helping tons!! I picked him up on Tuesday and he was talking about Molly, she was the leader for the day, "Molly is my best friend" he was saying!!! Awwwwww, melts my heart!! I asked him to show me her today, but he said later that she wasn't at school today. He also has another girlfriend and one boy that he talks about too!! My little guy is growing up!!!
While he was at school, I did some shopping. I needed a new laundry basket and also decided I was going to do over my bathroom. It is time to switch to the fall/winter ensemble and I am getting sick of what I have, so I decided to get all new!! Everything is brand new, in the color scheme of brown and aqua. I even cleaned from top to bottom in there, scouring all the tile and the ceiling!! We have a closet bathroom, seriously, I don't think I can lay down in it, not even on the diagonal! I guess big bathrooms were not the thing back in the 50's!! But, it's so small and we don't have an exhaust fan in there, add in Chris's long showers and there is a lot of steam and then the mildew shows up on the ceiling, yuck!! So, I scrubbed all that off with a bleach/h20 combo and bleached my brand new comfy jammies in the process!! Silly me forgot to take them off the back of the door while I was scrubbing. There are a few spots of rusty orange on the brown now. But hey, the bathroom is sparkling and I like rusty orange!
We've got family night at Macy's school tomorrow. We're doing pumpkin painting. It should be fun, she's been talking about it for weeks!
I think Jack finally fell asleep, so I'm going to mosey up to my scraproom and see if I can find some creativity!!
Have a great weekend!!
