Wowzers....

Good gracious, there's a million and one things going on!

First, the Grand Opening at The Scrapbook Pad in Colleyville was a huge hit (at least in my opinion)! Radio Disney was there, oodles of cake was eaten (boy it was UBER tasty! If you're in the market for a cake, check out Costco's bakery. They were DELISH!), grundles of prizes were given out (and they were GREAT prizes, Jeanie seriously spared no expense), and I think all of our tournament participants left having a good time. There were, as always, things we'll do differently next time, but I think it was a great success overall.

Second, the inspection on the house went splendidly. There are a few minor things that came up, but nothing that is a huge issue. We're asking the sellers to fix a few issues with the windows and that's it. :) Everything is moving right along for our April 9th closing date.

Except for... of course... PACKING. Seriously, if there was anything in this world I could live without, it would be packing. It's definitely on my list of things I hate to do.

The good thing, of course, is that it's giving me a prime opportunity to go through things and clear out the extras we don't need. And holy HAPPINESS... we happened to get a post card from a service agency that will be in our area on April 3rd collecting donations! How easy will it make life for me? I won't need to pack up the cars with stuff and drag it down to the donation center - one will come to me! YAY!

So, for the next few weeks, if I don't update much it's not because I'm dead. :) I'm just super busy (well, more than my normal busy crazyness)!

In other discussion... it cracks me up when someone mentions they read my blog - and I have absolutely no clue as to who they are. It happens all the time over at the store, or in various church conversations. Seriously, it cracks me up. I think my life is somewhat... dull and un-exciting. I started this blog as a way to keep in touch with my big-honkin-crazy and wild family (duh, being a reunited adopted child, with an already huge crazy family who marries someone with a big crazy family would make that out of anyone) and my various students. It's turned into a place to keep in touch with my artist friends, and community members in addition to the intended audience.

So, if you mention to me that you read my blog - don't be ashamed or embarassed! Seriously, as you can tell, I'm pretty much an open book. There really isn't anything I'm ashamed or embarassed to talk about, if you ever have any questions - ask. Seriously, I'm totally open to discussing stuff. Or life. Or crafting. Or pedicures. Or.... well pretty much anything.

I am so totally excited for you and Steve, you both rock! Can't wait to see the new house all fixed up, hopefully I will be able to get to TX sometime in the near future. Love as always, Sheri.

Make sure you pack your boxes with OPENING THEM in mind! That always helps me when I get on the other end...look at every item and ask yourself, "How will I feel when I pull this out of the box at the new house?" If you don't love it or NEED it, get rid of it! (stepping down off of soapbox now)

I'm very excited for you and everything, but now I'm going to have to wait even longer to see pictures of the new pantry, huh?

And get this...my brother-in-law reads it every day...or whenever there's a new post. He says he reads it like the morning paper. LOL! So funny!!!! What the HECK could a man find interesting about my blog?! LOL!
