News on the home front: Another Snow-Packed Day here in the Midwest. Pictures to follow.

Visiting with GranPaula and Papou. I think they are stuck here with the snow and all. A good day to stay inside, work on puzzles and play some games. Oh, and of course... EAT! Heaven knows, Trey made sure we had enough food to feed a village. I think I hear the treadmill calling my name!!

Paper Poppy September Sketch Challenge

Ok - did these for the September Sketch Challenge over at Paper Poppy.

I know. It's been like forever. Lot going on for this girl. Back to work FT; switched jobs; now home after a total hip replacement. Just recooping. Be back to norm soon, then back to work too. Actually, working from home for now, but trying to fit in a little creative time too.

OK, so I don't let my kids catch me saying that, but it's true, I do HATE HOMEWORK. Especially when it is a struggle, like it is almost everyday with my youngest, Isabelle. She is in the second grade this year, and though she doesn't bring home too much homework, there is at least one or two small assignments to complete each night - mainly reading. She has always struggled and we have hired a tutor in the past to work extra with her, as well as, she was in a Reading Recovery Program last year at school. All this has helped, but we still struggle - she just gives up soooo easily. It's frustrating. We try to make it fun, but it often just becomes a battle. Reading has gotten easier, but Math - oh let's just not go there now. Right now, I am feeling awful and she us up in her room pouting. I am trying to get up the energy to go upstairs again, and see if she is ready to give it another go.

So now that I have vented on that, on to more pleasant things. Have been meaning to share these pictures for awhile. I finally painted my scraproom/office. I only had the paint cans sitting in the room gathering dust for probably a good 6 months, but finally got the bug up my butt to get it done when I realized I was going to have to go back to work full time, due to monetary issues. I did say I was going to talk about pleasant things didn't I - well that being said, I won't go on and on about the fact that I am indeed working again full time - since July it's been. Save that story for another day - like when I have work stuff to complain about! LOL!
