The "Good Ol' Days"

Boy, are there days when I wish the girls were still toddlers. Life was so much easier then!! No constant bickering & picking, no dramas over hair & wardrobe, {OK, a little from Savannah, but she’s ALWAYS been a Drama Queen!! LOL}, and the most running around we did was to the grocery store, Target, Grandma’s & the park. Now, I’m at work by 7:45am and on my way home about 4:30 or 5:00pm, but first I run over to the elementary school to pick up Darien from after school activities, then to the middle school to get Riley from volleyball, then home to whip up a nutritious & yummy dinner, and back out again to take Savannah to either tumbling or cheer practice. Getting computer time has also become harder now that the kids need it for school. When I do get my turn, I’m too tired to think!! I have just enough energy to read my emails!! They’re not too happy with me taking over the computer for the entire weekend, but it is what it is.
I’m glad my girls {especially Savannah, who’s now 14} are getting into sports; it keeps them out of trouble, but sheesh! I’ve lost all my “Me Time”!! I don’t even have it in the morning like I used to because the girls are getting up at 5:30am, just after I do! Sleep-overs with friends have become a welcomed relief!
But enough griping, since it’s a long weekend {thank goodness, I REALLY needed it!!} I was able to finish up 2, yes 2, projects I’ve been working on. Many of the kids have either started back to school, or will be soon, so I have goodies perfect for such an occasion. Another 2 8X8 Kwick Stick Mini Albums!! The first one was made with my
Magic Marker paper pack, plus elements from both freebies & various element packs. {Download below} And because this is Labor Day weekend when most designers have sales, and I haven’t had time to set one up, there is another Kwick Stik Mini Album in my store!! Made with Study Hall Paper Pack, this too is great for back to school pictures. {Click image to be taken to FernLilis} So, enjoy, have a wonderful weekend, I’m off for a BBQ with my Mom & 2 sisters.
