... that is my New Year's resolution... to just try take things easy! Wanted to work on a 365 project starting Jan 1... didn't happen. Not feeling the mojo yet and don't intend to force it either. Let it come when it comes, if it comes... if not, there's still a lot to do around the house!
School reopens tomorrow. Will have the house all to myself for a few hours again. Before that there are uniforms to iron, backpacks to check, glasses to find... books to renew...
All the holiday stuff are packed and put away, new stuff are out. Two trips are planned in my head - one to Ikea to get kitchen stuff and maybe a rug for the family room, the current one used to be great but raising two kids has taken its toll and inexplicable stains that I can't take out even with deep cleaners. Another is to the local flea market to brouse through other people's dusty junk :) Don't know when all that will actually happen, but looking forward to it...
So, HAPPY NEW YEAR to one and all...

A very special day

Today was a very special day...I pushed myself to set up a blog that I had been planning to set up for ages. We went to a birthday party in the evening at Pump It Up. We went gift shopping before that. But what made it incredible was that I met Phyllis at Ruban Rouge. And she gave me a huge rolling tote full of craft goodies, a gift from Autumn Leaves, my most 'favoritest' (if I may borrow my 4-year-old's expression!) manufacturer ever. At Memory Trends, each day I stood at their booth and drooled for at least 20 minutes before starting out. In fact, when the Cream, Red and Black Collection hit the stores, I stocked up enough to last me a decade. It was so kind of them to congratulate me in such a special way for making the SOY finals. And, Phyllis is such a lovely lady. Thank you, Phyllis.
I'm waiting for Ashis to finish up his office work, so we can finish up watching the movie that we had started watching before Christmas...yeah!
I have to get all the new photos off my camera. So, now I'll go do that.
