A Little Slice...

And now I know why I haven't read in over 2 years!

If only I had known it was going to be like this! My sister dropped off one innocent looking hardcover book last week some time and told me I needed to read it... Little did I know! Ugh! I put it off because there was too many things to do... Too little time in my life to do them and I didn't have the luxury of being able to sit down to read. Well, I got sick on Monday. A really bad cold that made it impossible to move so I sat on the couch and started reading. And reading.... And reading! I got through the whole book on Monday and picked up the sequel before I put my head down for the night... And then on Tuesday, I read and read and read and I was finished with that book. Well my sister only had the 3 books, but I took that last one from her and read that today and guess what... I just finished and I was so disappointed That now I have to go get the 4th book in the series and read that tomorrow! I can't believe that I read 3 books in 3 days! I used to devour books all the time but after having my kids I didn't have the time to sit to read them...

Well now I have to tell you what series I am talking about!
Twilight! OMG! I should have guessed how good they were going to be by the praise I have seen all over the place for it! I can't believe that it took so long for me to get into it! I really am glad that I had the chance to read all the books at once, though! Because I don't think I could stand the suspense to wait for the next book to come out! Although, There is one last book that has been put on hold.... Because of someone leaked it and now Stephanie can't write it! I really can't wait!
Now I am off to the bookstore!

Idon't know whether to dance or cry!

I have been sitting here for 2 days all by myself!

No more whining! No more Crying! No more fighting! No more Mommy, Mommy, Mommy! No more climbing all over me! No More too loud TV! No more Spills that I am not told about so I don't find them until they start to smell! No more kids for a whole month!

But then again.... No more hugs! No More Cuddles! No more kisses! No more "love you to the edge of the universe"! No more good nights! No more mornin' mom! No more "can I hold your hand?"

Well I think that did it! It is definitely time to cry! I miss them so much and it has only been 3 days! Daddy took them on the plane to visit Grandma in Indiana on Saturday! It is only Tuesday and I really don't know what to do with myself! I did all the laundry on Saturday and did all the vacuuming on Sunday (with no interruptions which was nice)... But now I have Nothing to do. No making breakfast, no making lunch. No taking them to the park! No Swim lessons.... No soccer! What in the world am I gonna do with myself, the woman, without being the mom!?!?

I think I am gonna go curl up in a ball on my bed til this feeling passes! (you might see me in a month!)

Saying goodbye at the airport is so HARD!

Not to mention the fact that Daddy forgot to put K's meds in his backpack before they left. So I had to Drive 20 minutes back to the house and then 20 minutes back (driving at break neck speeds! I am lucky I didn't get a ticket!) And then pulling up to the drop off at the Airport just to give them a quick kiss and hug and then watch as they hightailed it through security! Lucky they didn't miss their plane!

It is getting a little frustrating!

I have been, for a week now trying to get a lo done, and every time I open up more than one file in PS, it crashes! I am really getting irritated! And my DH (who is a Software programmer) either can't find the problem, or doesn't have the time to really dig into it right now. I can understand that, he has a big project that he has been working on that is first priority...

But what about me??? When Am I gonna get some scrapping done???

Ah well, thanks for letting me vent!

OMG! It is almost over! My baby girl is graduating Kindergarten on the 30th! I really can't believe it! She only has 2 more full weeks of school left. (they have the week of the 18th off for testing) Ok, I think I am gonna cry now! I sat down to write a happy blog post and it is making me sad! Because I know that At the end of August my baby boy will be a Kindergartener! What in the world will I do with myself! Both kiddos in school? having at LEAST 3 hours all to myself! I will go bonkers I tell you! Ah well... I am putting this out of my mind until I absolutely NEED to think about it. Period!

New Product at Laura Lively Designs

First of all, I want to thank everyone who made my grand opening and my debut as a designer such a success. I really appreciate all of your support! The doors to my shoppe have been open for a week now. And since I opened on a Tuesday, I felt it only fitting that new products are released on Tuesday. But first, let me show you the new freebie... It is an alpha that I absolutely LOVE! And I hope that you love it too. I call it Picnic in the Park and it is inspired by all the times my kiddos and I go to the "big" (as they call it) Park and sit under the "big" tree to eat our lunch that we brought in brown paper bags... And without further ado I would like you all to meet "Picnic in the Park Alpha" (isn't she purty!?) Get this now because in one week it will be going up to full price ($2.99)

Picnic in the Park Alpha
And a little closer...
Closer Look PITP
Loaded into the shoppe today is a brand new Kit. I call this one Summer Sorbet because the colors are reminiscent of all the colors of summer when your a kid. The texture is a bit worn, but I promise you will love it!
And for today only get this kit for 20% off!
Summer Sorbet Full Kit
Have a Fantastic Week!
