About a month ago I won a RAK from Alexis, she's on the DT at Label Tulip, Hambly & Dream Street to name a few. Anyway, with the holidays and CHA coming up she's been incredibly busy... she sent my RAK the other day and it arrived! Boy does patience pay off, because she waited to send it her new line from Dream Street arrived so she sent me some of the new papers. Can we say GORGEOUS! They are too pretty to use, I might just frame them as is and slap them on the wall.
There were lots of other fun goodies in there too, I may even make some time to dig in tonight! I was supposed to drive down to Columbia to meet Matt, with the fire and everything else going on I thought it best to stay home. He surprised me and rented a car to come home for the night. It worked out really well, his crew drove with him so they split the cost of the car three ways! He doesn't have to be at the airport until 2 tomorrow so we have most of the day together and he's home tomorrow night for two days!
After he leaves tomorrow I'm heading over to Michelle's for some much needed scrap therapy! I haven't seen her all week, we had plans and I had to cancel twice due to the craziness around here. It's going to be nice to get out for a few hours. After Michelle's I'm headed to my friend Brandy's house... I crazily agreed to babysit so she and her hubs could go to a super bowl party. I say crazily because she has 5 kids... ages 10, 4, 2 and six week old twins... oh yeah, and I'll have Ari with me too since Matt doesn't get home until 9! So, that's 6 kids, five of them under the age of 5! IF I survive I'm going shopping for new clothes for my trip to California next weekend. When I told Michelle I was babysitting her mom, Connie, said, "what's she trying to do, win the Mother Theresa award?" Hehe, not quite.
Anyway, things are starting to calm down. The neighbors house was boarded up today, now I can stop worrying about the neighborhood kids trying to snoop around. We buried the dog today, we couldn't leave her in the house and the family really didn't want to see her (not that I blame them, it was really hard). I'm going to the nursery next to our neighborhood on Monday to see if they will donate a tree to plant over Diamond's grave. It's the right thing to do!
Whew, I think I'm going to spend the rest of the night on the sofa. My back is hurting for the first time since I stopped my physical therapy, I've just been doing way too much lately. I'm so glad Matt came home tonight, he's making us dinner so I can rest a bit. Wish me luck, have a great night!
