Well, I just wanted to start today's blog post with a proud Mommy moment - DS scored top of his class on a recent math test; nobody was even close. Cool, huh? This, from the kid that has trouble spelling ... and yet, factoring algebraic equations is something he just "gets". LOL To top that off, a neighbor - who takes AP classes, but struggles with math - asked for DS's help with some study 'cause she failed the test. Um. My son's a tutor, too?
Mother's Day was a pretty quiet affair - just what I wanted. The boys got me a Josh Groban CD, "Illuminations", which is perfect to scrap to. DS and I cooked dinner - hamburgers, homemade potato salad and coleslaw. DS proclaimd this was "the best dinner, ever!" LOL
To give myself a break from scrapping, I've broken out the knitting needles. *shock horror* I purchased some knitting yarn in Australia during our last visit (um, Christmas) and have yet to put that to good use. Pattern found. Knitting started. It's nice to just shut down the laptop for a while and give my creative brain a rest for a while. :)
I've also joined a Biggest Loser competition at The Scrap Orchard. There are prizes to give away at the end of eight weeks ... and I figured since I'm already going to the gym, WW, drinking water, etc. ... well, heck, why not try to make it pay off with $$$?
Now, that's not to say that I haven't been scrapping as well! ROFL Here's a few of my latest pages - all linked to their respective galleries for credits ... and thanks to those of you that joined me for TWO Saturday's in a row of speed scrapping at Design House Digital! I've taken your suggestions under my wing and next month, look for a beginner's level page, as well as a more advanced one.
