Busier and Busier

It seems as if I am always running from one crazy-busy activity in life to the next ... just when I think that things are gonna "slow down" a little ... they don't ... the current crazy thing in my schedule THIS week is that our house is getting painted ... FINALLY!!

We had ivy on the front of our house for YEARS. It looked REALLY cool, but my husband was always complaining about how damaging it could be to the house. One day, without warning, he went out and pulled ALL of it off. Which would have been okay if we had actually been PLANNING on painting the house any time soon ... which we weren't ... so it left these AWFUL "vine trails" all over the front of the house ... grrrrrr!!! I think it's been about ten years or so since that happened ... starting this morning the painters will be here bright and early to get 'er done!! VERY excited!

This is a card I made for my father in law a couple of weeks ago for his 81st birthday (the man still works like a horse ... 10-12 hours a day ... and runs circles around all the rest of us!!). I've been so busy I haven't even had time to post it! Go figure ...

Happy Monday, everyone!
