I won't be on for a while, so I thought I'd do a large update, if Blogger lets me.

I completed some DT assignments for ScrapNCircle using Chatterbox papers, which I LOVE! The fact that they're doublesided is an added bonus. I also participated in ScrapNCircle's December Crop (Scrap the Halls) last weekend. I didn't do nearly as many layouts/projects as I had wanted, but I'm happy I did a couple. I completed "I just call him Dad." I did one more layout, but I can't find where I filed it. **Sigh!**
I just started participating in Scrap Jazz's "Trimmed Scrappers" challenge. Yes, we all know I'm a little pudgy and the fact that my own Mother weighs about 7 pounds less than I do is driving me over the edge. My Mom has been overweight most of her adult life. She hasn't seen her current weight for at least 30 years. She's wasting away! I'll see if I can get a photo of her after Christmas with me to show you the difference. I'm really happy and proud of her and for her. She's my inspiration for getting back on track. I call her with my progress and she calls me with hers. Anyway, ScrapJazz has a daily and weekly check in, not to mention some challenges posted by Nancyroo. I haven't completed the first challenge yet, but she's giving everyone extra time, so I hope to finish it within the next couple of days.
I'm not ready for Christmas yet, but I'm excited for the children. Their anticipation is overwhelming! Everyday I'm asked if Santa's coming. And everyday I tell them how many days are left. They get such a look of excitement on their faces. It's so CUTE!
I'll be traveling with the children to Michigan (6 1/2 hour drive) after Christmas by myself! I've done it several times, but I don't like to do it as well in the Winter. We haven't seen some of our reletives in months, so it's time...if the weather is good. That's the deal breaker. Bad weather...we stay put!
I have volleyball tonight! We have to play 6 games! Yes!!! I love it! I should weigh less on Friday AM. I just love that game!
Well, that's it for now. Happy Holidays, Everyone! Stay safe!
