Something borrowed...

Well, I promised to blog every week but we had company this past week (OK...they only arrived Wednesday but I still had to clean the house, enjoy the sun, referee 1,769 sibling ultimate fighting matches, not to mention we are also looking after a friends' dog for the week) so I'm copping out this week and using something I've seen on another blog that I stalk like to read. Of course I have erased her answers and inserted my own. Come on...I do have some integrity!

Outside my window...I see that the wind has picked up the foam inserts from under the trampoline edges and blown them all over the yard.

I am thinking...that I will probably have to go out and chase down said pieces of foam.

I am thankful for...the fact that I ate copious amounts of fudge last week and yet didn't gain a pound. Maybe that 1/2 pound of butter wasn't so bad for me after all.

From the kitchen...Ummmm...after the above post I think I will be avoiding the kitchen for a
while. The fudge pan is empty and taunting me.

I am wearing...Navy and white sleep pants, a navy T-shirt I got from an XXXL male roommate back in 1993 and blue crocs. Not sure which is the biggest fashion faux pas. And just to put the question to is still morning!

I am creating...yet another disaster zone in my scrap room. Unfortunately it isn't caused by a scrapping frenzy. Dan wanted to fix a desk drawer for me (I've only been waiting over a year) and it had to be done last night at 10 when the feeling struck him. It required the entire top of the desk being taken off which greatly helped in the facilitation of said mess. The 472 pounds of crap expensive scrap book supplies stuff I had piled neatly stored on top of my desk needed to find a new home fast or I may have had to wait for another year for the drawer repair.

I am dance gleefully in the streets at 8:00 am on Tuesday morning. Yes, Staples advertising agency people, it is indeed "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" when the kids head back to school. Of course, on the down side, I will have to get up a lot earlier in the morning now that we can't sleep in...OK, I've weighed the pros and cons and decided that back to school time is probably the "Second Most Wonderful Time of the Year" with the first day of summer vacation beating it out by a hair.

I am reading...too many blogs! (disclaimer...I did not change this answer but took it directly from the original blogger. Seems us bloggers have a little addiction.)

I am hoping...that Dan doesn't have too many odd jobs/household chores to do today. I sometimes feel extremely lazy and incompetent a slight tinge of guilt as I watch him busily attack his to-do list as I lounge on the coach with a good book.

I am hearing...the hum of my computer fan and the click of the keyboard is good (and quiet!)

Around the house...there are a number of switch plate covers that need to be put back on from when I painted last fall. Think I can add those to Dan's to-do list?

One of my favourite things...Fudge. Nuff said!

A few plans for the rest of the week...Collect trampoline foam. Battle 2874 other Moms at Staples today to get the last 2 frosted orange duo tangs and yellow report covers. Apply names and labels to 2 frosted orange duo tangs, 2 yellow report covers, 96 pencil crayons, 22 pencils, 16 scribblers (excuse me, they are called notebooks now - scribbling is no longer one of the three Rs) 2 back packs, 2 lunch bags, 4 indoor sneakers and a partridge in a pear tree (although I'm not sure the labels will stick to its feathers.) Do my annual "visit the principals" to get my name on the supply lists. Enjoy the quiet of the first week back to school before the principals start calling in week two.

A picture to share...I guess when I was creating this layout I had forgotten that fudge was one of my favourite things. Instead I went with reading, photography, computers, TV and Lays Chips. Not making me sound like a very well rounded, extroverted (or healthy) individual is it?
