I'm Up & Running!!!!!

Good Morning & Happy Monday Friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!  Ours was lovely & perfect for our very first Holiday in our new home.....we're truly thankful for everything good that's come our way lately & can't stop giving praise to God for blessing us each and every day!!!

I'm now posting from home even though I don't have all my things put away just yet....the Holiday sort of interfered with my *clean-up* work!  I have been working diligently getting things just where I want them so I can start creating again & I'm pretty confident that by this weekend....I should have something to show you. 

I do appreciate your patience as I get all my stampin' stuff organized & put away....I cannot create if I don't know where things are!  My main goal for today is getting the rest of my things in their place so all I have to do is pull out my cardstock & start stamping away!!!  I better get to work so I'm signing off for now!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,

Checkin' In Part 2.....

Good Morning Friends & Happy Monday!!!!
I'm posting from my local library again this morning but I'm happy to report that I'm not so stressed out anymore!  I realized that my expectations were just really too high & there were going to be some bumps along the road whether I liked it or not soooooo now I'm much more at ease & taking one day at a time to get my things all unpacked and in their proper places!!!

We had to disassemble so many pieces of furniture to get everything moved here & needless to say that with my DH being gone....I'm not having much luck finding the screws to put my furniture back together!  I'm not upset though---much to my surprise---I'm just moving on with what I can & will get back to those things later.  One of my bookcases was pretty damaged during the move so that's severely hindering me from having all my stamp stuff out where I can find everything.....this did make me pretty angry & I'm still not happy about that!!!

Deep breath.....I'm very elated to report that Brandon & Bianca had an awesome first week of school!  They both love their new schools & how friendly everyone is here!  Bianca was tested before she even started & was immediately bumped up to the advanced/gifted classes & I cannot begin to tell you all how much of a difference that has made!!!!  She's happy, excited about going to school & actually looking forward to whatever challenges the teachers put before her!  Brandon's counselor wanted to bump him up in classes also but I want to watch him for a while before we decide to really challenge him.  He does excellent in all his schoolwork, quizzes & chapter reviews but if you put a test in front of him....he fails big time.  With that being said; the teachers are going to monitor him, give him extra reviews & whatever other help he may need to get those test scores up.  Their ultimate goal is to have him in advanced classes his 8th grade year & I have no doubt that will happen!  I can honestly say that this was the best move we could've made for their education & well being and I only hope that they continue to excel in their classes!!!!

My hour is almost up so I'm going to sign off for now.  I will try to be back later this week with another update or better yet from my own computer....we'll see!  Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
