Where does the time go?

Really?  Where does it go???  It has been 13 1/2 years sice I had my daughter, 14 1/2 years since my son was born, 21 yrs 9 mths since I married my wonderful husband, 22 1/2 years that I have been friends with my bestie Gina, 23 1/2 years since Larry and I started going out, 13 1/2 years we've been in this house, 7 years for my second round at the daycare (the first was 6 yrs 7 mths and I was away 6.5 yrs) and 15 years that my other bestie Kim has been in my life.  Her oldest son will be 25 this year...her second will be 20 on Tuesday!  The younger two turn 16 and 15 this year....I don't feel that much older!  Well, in my head anyway...seeing as I work with toddlers I have noticed a change in my physical abilities...the floor is a lot further away than it was before!

So all that leads up to the fact that I cannot believe it has been three weeks since I last blogged!  Really, when you look at the above list, 3 weeks is very short....LOL!

So what have I been up to?  Well, not much really!  I did make the family some Valentines...I haven't even taken a picture yet!  I will...I promise!  Any other scrapping?  Well, the intention is always there but I am so easily distracted by this damn computer and that stupid television....doesn't help that I have no ink right now (unless I want to pirnt B & W) so if a challenge inspires me I have to hunt through what's printed already...and those pics don't always'm making excuses, I know....I guess I am just in a slump right now!  I will get back to it...

I find that when I am tired from working a lot of hours (which I have been the last little bit) that my scrapping is the first thing to take a hit.  And unfortunately my walking has dropped by the wayside too....I will get back on track!  I have to!

Ok, enough blathering...

I went to Walmart to pick up a few things yesterday and I decided I was going to get one of their dressier plaid trench style coats which were regularly $50 and marked down to $35.  I got a nice surprise at the rang in at $19!  Cha-ching!  So I told my daughter about it and today she and I went shopping and finished up at WMart where she bought one of them...she's lucky though, hers is purple...I wanted the purple but they didn't have my size....sigh.... Anyhoo...the coat isn't super warm, but it's perfect for this weird winter we've been having.  I have found my other coats to be too much, which is why I wanted this one.

So, I guess that is all I will say for now....

Thanks for stopping by!!
