As usual I'm *up* bright and early … well … I say *up* but I'm actually in my standard semi-horizontal-couch lounging position so, more accurately, I'm *not sleeping*. I just can't catch a break on the sleeping-front these days. With Spring Break last week I DID have the luxury of sleeping in until 8:00 am most days … alas that usually resulted from a night of being awake for a few hours so I actually wasn't sleeping in as much as I was early morning napping!
Whilst Spring Break was fairly painless as far as kids fighting and driving me crazy goes, I am more than ready for life to get back to it's usual rhythm. Rebecca was sick the week before break so she has been home almost a full two weeks. Again, at 13 she doesn't *need* me every minute and I can certainly go out and run errands but having my people home really disrupts my schedule. On a "normal" day I'm up at 6:30, workout at 9:00, walk the dog at 10 … and on it goes. The last two weeks I've bee all over the map - Tuesday I didn't get my workout in until 7:30 PM! On the bright side I seem to be making progress on my "be more flexible and go-with-the-flow" mission but MAN I prefer routine! Tomorrow. Just gotta make it to tomorrow *lol*.
Last weekend I DID manage to hit the Craft Cave for a little *me* time. I came up with three VERY quick, simple, birthday cards for a kids class I did over the break (stay tuned for posts on those) … and I FINALLY inked up a stamp set I got quite some time ago … Tap, Tap, Tap. Check out what I made …
The process I use doesn't always follow the same pattern. For this card I KNEW I wanted to use this stamp set (Tap, Tap, Tap) ...
Yup - kinds love it! I'm hoping to get down to the cave again today but won't hold my breath. Yesterday it was 22 degrees out … I can't hang out in the basement with such lovely weather! We'll see … I'll go-with-the-flow *lol*
Pop in again soon to see my simple birthday cards. If you're local let me know if you want to come to my class this Tuesday night - we'll be making this card and two others. In the meantime, have a stampy Sunday!
