Busy, busy, busy...

Do you ever have those days where you are just running all day long?  I felt like I spent the whole day playing catch up...and didn't get nearly enough done!

Wednesdays are my least favorite day of the week -- I have my kiddos most of the day, with one short 30 minute break...which I usually spend frantically running copies, returning emails, or grading math quizzes to send home.  Then, right after school I tutor from 3:15-4:15.  Today after tutoring it was off to the grocery store, then home to make dinner, pick up the house, start laundry, dishes, fit in some homework for my research class, pay bills, and entertain my attention-starved puppy.  After all that, I finally told the hubby I was going to "the room" and that I'd see him later!  After an hour of craft therapy, I'm feeling better. :)

I made these on my cricut tonight using that new kitchen cartridge that I was talking about.  Check back tomorrow to see what I turn these little babies into...

Aren't they so cute?!  Stay tuned...

By the way, in case you haven't hubby went back to work this week!  He is working for a new company and enjoying being back on construction sites.  The job he's on now is outside, so he's soaking up the spring weather and sunshine.  Such a blessing for both of us -- although it's not as fun to come home when he's working.  I got too used to him making dinner, keeping up the house and bills...bascially spoiling me with all of his free time.  Oh, well!  I'd much rather have him working than come home to dinner on the table.  And, I'm sure he agrees. :)  Something that I have always appreciated about our relationship is that we are able to pick up the slack when the other needs it.  I do more in the summer time, because I'm off school.  He has done more for me this school year because I've been swamped with working and masters classes.  I guess that's what marriage is all about -- supporting each other and helping the other get through the tough times.  It is comforting to know I have someone who actually will work to make my life less stressful.  Feeling lucky...

Okay, here's my latest inspiration...
I was reading one of my favorite blogs earlier in the week.  Young House Love  It is awesome and full of inspiring do-it-yourself ideas.  One reader wrote in about a chair makeover:



Are you in awe?? I am!  I have been wanting a similar chair for my living room.  We are hoping to revamp the whole thing soon, so I've been collecting small things, as well as ideas, over the past few weeks.  I looked at lots of similar chairs at NFM and they were $200+!  She got this one at a garage sale for only $20!!  So, I'm going to scour some garage sales, flea markets, etc. and see if I can find a chair with good "bones" that I can redo.  Thought it would be a fun and new project, even if I don't have time to do it until summer time.  Oh, summer.  How I long for you!

Anybody else counting down the days until the weekend??  I think I have Spring Fever.

Thanks for reading! :)
