Hi everyone. Just got home from work and thought I'd put a quick post up. I always love coming home, for obvious reasons, of course, but also, when I walk through the door, Maylee runs up to me and says, "Mommy!! I missed you!!" I just love that. My Mommy heart melts. She does so many things that make my heart melt, I'm sure all you parents can relate. A new thing she does is put her ear on my chest and say "Mommy, I hear your heart!" She's just amazed. And I am too, because SHE amazes ME.
Here's my July page of all she's done this past month. We had a full month with my sister and her kids coming down from Washington state to visit us.
So the local news today was a horrible, horrible accident on Hwy. 44. Two buses, a semi-truck and an SUV had a pileup and the driver of the SUV and one child from one of the buses was killed. The local news played it over and over and showed things on the news that I don't think they should've. The picture they showed online to go with the headline made my physically ill. To be a loved one of someone in that accident and then see those pictures would be horrifying. I just think the news goes too far too often just to get a story or to be "the first" with the breaking news. Have a little tact, people!
On a much lighter note, I've realized I like summer for the simple reason of there's a lot less TV that I watch. Now, two of my favorite shows are on in the summer, The Closer and Burn Notice. I also love Royal Pains and So You Think You Can Dance. But I watch way less TV in the summer and have more time to do things I love, like scrap and read. But this time of year also means I have to decide what new TV shows I'm going to watch for the upcoming season. I try not to pick up on too many new shows, but I don't want to miss anything great, either. That's why I LOOOOVE DVR! So convenient. I can record whatever I want and watch it whenever. Anyway, I haven't decided what I'm going to watch, but I usually go along with whatever Michael Ausiello suggests. He's a TV reporter that used to be with TV Guide and now he's with Entertainment Weekly. I've been following him for years. He's got great taste and he's funny!
I've been toying with the idea of entering some scrap challenges. There are so many to choose from in the scrap community. There are speed challenges, where you have a certain amount of time to come up with a layout. Then there are kit challenges where everyone has to use the same kit and make a layout. Some sites even have prizes like iPads and iPods! I'd like to get in on that action! But time is always the biggest factor me. Boy, a kid really takes up a lot of time ☺!
Hope everyone has a great day!
