Breathe in .......
WOW Life can get going and put you in directions you just have to go with. Being someone that likes to be in control ( Stop snickering Kate!) , I have had to let go and let things happen. It is a big lesson to learn , but worth learning. I couldn't have got thru the last couple weeks if I didn't learn this lesson.
I have taken on a bit this summer , and a few times I was wondering what the HECK was I thinking. But when I sit back and look at things I know exactly what I was thinking, I was thinking I want to do these things for Josh and all the other kids that love the game of football and want to play. I have taken on not only coaching but managing the concessions at the football field, which is time consuming , ordering, organizing and making sure it all goes off without a hitch. Working with some parents that don't really get the whole volunteer thing, but working with a lot of parents that do, and that is what makes it great! I have met so many great people during this season, I love surrounding myself with wonderful people , people that care about their kids and that their kids have a great place to play. It is so important in their little lives to get out there and play. Learn great values, how to work as a team and to have fun doing it.
So that is the football part, then there is The Corner Store, which is doing GREAT!!! I am shocked sometimes in this day and time that things are going as well as they are. But scrapbookers have to have their supplies I have found out! I love the customers I have met over the past 4 months. I can't believe it has only been 4 months since I opened the doors on line. I was nervous to start it, but so glad I did!! The response has been just fantastic!! I love hearing from people that I have what they want and need. I have so many new items to add and plan on a BIG , HUGE , Sale in September so stay tuned!!
S.A.V.E. , We just had our August Event, I can't believe that this little idea that started in Oct 2004 just had our 10th event!!! It was such a great time , and with guest teacher Melodee Langworthy teaching her classes, so many of us left loving stamping again! I will be carrying the stamps Melodee uses in class in the Corner Store. They are now a staple in my stamp case!
We are well on the way to planning the January Event already only 141 days away!!! I have already announced the Trifecta of Teachers on the Message board and will be announcing to everyone on the Scrappin Away website very soon! Registration opens September 15th , mark your calendars.....spots are limited and will go quickly! We have some very very exciting news to reveal and let me just say.....the goodie bags will be over flowing. I am so very excited to be doing this event. It will be our 5th Anniversary year this year and I want to do it up big!
Kate is doing GREAT! Today is 5 weeks after surgery and she is already driving, been doing that for a week now, she went to work for a couple hours yesterday , not suppose to return for 3 more weeks! She can ride a stationary bike in physical therapy and is lifting 10lb weights with her legs. She has some nights where they are a bit stiff, but other then that she is doing so great! I am so happy for her and I see that smile back , it is hard to smile when you live in pain everyday, so that is worth all of it!
Josh is enjoying his last few days of summer vacation, football 4 nights a week and games on the weekend. He ran one in for an extra point in our game versus Qtown, we won 27-6 .
So I think I am caught up now...now if I could get the rest of my life caught up!!
Working on it, but as long as I am busy I will not complain. I love being busy.
