News Updates

It’s been a busy month, that’s my excuse for not blogging.  Actually I do blog in my mind, but it never seems to get to the keyboard.  So pardon the jammies and the cold coffee, here’s the deal lately…

I am back from 10 days in Arizona.  It was a busy trip, which included the Spellbinders Design Team retreat.  We kept pretty busy and I didn’t get much time in the sun.  That bodes well for freckles and wrinkles, but not so much for relaxation and a “healthy” glow on my winter-white skin. 

Speaking of wrinkles {and my lack thereof}, (cue hair flip) I celebrated my 29th birthday {with experience} during the trip.  I still haven’t decided what I want for my birthday, but its been narrowed down to a Canon 50D, Nikon 300s, or keep the Rebel XT and keep thinking.  The teenagers at Best Buy have been, like, helpful. Dude.  As I was stroking the 50D one tried to talk me into a point and shoot.  Really?  So my next stop is the real camera store to see if I can rent one of each to play with them.

While I was gallivanting around Phoenix, little Evan was the jet-set junior himself.  That’s right, he got his ticket to fly and is officially a US Citizen, member of the family and still smiling.  They had a few speed bumps on the way out of China, and somewhat of a journey in health, language and culture, but I’m sure he’ll be just fine!  I will get to see him soon!

I have been pampered since I returned.  Don’t think that’s the norm.  However, I walked up to the front door to this:

I planted tons of bulbs last fall and was afraid I was going to miss the blooms. Spunky, my budding chef, had baked a birthday cake and decorated it.  Sparky came through and did some laundry (no? Yes!)  And Cindy was just plain old happy to have Momma home, as was Pizza Man.

A certain 16 year old is begging for a vehicle, and that has turned him into a very helpful fellow around the house.  A certain 15 year old is begging me to sign him up for driver’s ed, and that makes him a very helpful fellow around the house.  You should see how sparkling clean their bathroom is!  Or maybe not, because that was yesterday. 

Cindy has resumed her security service, protecting us from random bunnies and squirrels.  she’s just happy to go for walkies.

I’ve got a really big announcement coming up, and lots of art, I promise!
