January 29, 2008

Well, I sure feel the love!!! I've had a few ladies from a couple sites that I used to visit daily message me to find out where the heck I've been!!!

Well, I am living the circus life so to speak!!! There are three rings in our big top and something going on in everyone one of them from the moment I wake up til I nearing my descent into bed!!!

My daily schedule since 1/22/08 has looked like this:

7:00 AM Wake up and get kids up for school.
8:00 AM Shower & get ready to drop kids off at school.
8:30 AM Head out of the house for the first of many ventures during the day.
9:00 AM Make sure I am back to the office to open up at 9.
9 - 12 PM Open the office, make property rounds, file morning paperwork, check the message machine and return all calls, make collection calls and if there is a break in the morning then I go to the site that I am site coordinator on to moderate the forums by chatting with and making sure nothing out of turn has been posted. In addition, I check the site that I am on the design team for in case there is anything we need to be aware of.
12 - 2 PM Lunch, post office and bank runs - sometimes the last two run me over til 2:30'sh depending on the lines
2 - 4 PM Working in the office on anything the owner sends down, meeting with contractors and engineers (actually anytime throughout each day I'm dealing with this) about reconstruction of a concrete retaining wall that collapsed that supports the main gas line through this part of Austin PLUS an electrical pole the size of an airplane - not a good combo to have to worry about!!!
4:00 PM Leave the office to go pick up Cait from school
4:30 PM Usually back to the office by now and dealing with customers, paperwork, phones, you name it
5:15 PM Take Rob to a training class for his part time job he is going to be doing at nights through June.
5:20 PM Back to the office to return any missed calls while dropping him off and to begin my end of day paperwork
6:00 PM Close the office, prepare the bank deposit, run end of day reports & file them
6:15 PM Head out to the baseball field to pick up Dylan from baseball practice that is supposed to be over at 6:30 but usually runs late (never past 7 YET)
6:30 - 7 PM Back home to do dinner for us three and make something to take with me to Rob
8:30 PM Head out to the place where Rob is currently training to pick him up when they let him out for lunch (anywhere between 8:30 and 9:15)
8:45 - 9:30 PM Get back to the house from Rob dropping me off so I don't have to get out at 1 AM to pick him up.

In between all that I try to do a little scrapping, housecleaning, chatting with friends, update my website, take custom orders and update my blog!!!!

So, I am alive and kicking. If I am not around it is not because I don't want to be - I just simply haven't found the extra 6 hours a day I need to keep up with everything!!! Between updating and maintaining my website and the custom orders that we are getting I haven't had much time to do anything for me!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

With that said..........

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
