Holiday Weekends

Well, summer is over, at least on the calendar it is.

With the passage of the Labor Day holiday and school starting, the summer of 2007 is in the books. In some ways I am ready for fall and in others I am kicking and screaming like a two year old having a temper tantrum. I don't want to have to deal with school but know that I must in order to get it over with. Being so close to graduation makes me both happy and a bit scared. Scared because I have already missed one of the two classes held last week and I feel a bit behind already which is not a good sign after just two classes. I hope that one of my classmates will let me copy their notes tonight so that I can keep up with what was covered during Thursday's class.

My holiday weekend was spent at home because of my cold. I had a party to go to but couldn't bring myself to go and possibly infect any of my family or friends with this horrid cold. I have my voice back but it is still raspy and my lungs are still full of gunk.

More progress was made in the ongoing purge and I took two boxes and a bag to the Salvation Army on Sunday morning. Two more bags are ready, along with another box.

The problem that I was having with the rear tail-light/turn signal sockets of my car has been remedied. I called a local Pontiac dealer and told them what I needed, they had some in stock, Rick drove over to the dealer then out to the new office and fixed me up. I can now drive confidently knowing that I will have brake lights and turn signals. I just have to get my rear brakes done (hopefully this Saturday) and my car will be on it's way to being ready for the cold winter of Chicago.

I got more organized in the craft cellar and even made a birthday card (and one extra for my stash) for my co-worker Kerrie. I have taken pics and will post when I get the film developed. Only 8 more pics to take and then I will take the film in. I stamped a bunch of images that I want to color and hope to have more cards to take pics of this week.

Does anyone know where I can get a large (larger than the one offered by SU) scalloped circle punch? If you do, please let me know. I have an idea in my head and need a larger scalloped circle to make it right, at least in my mind's eye.

How was your holiday weekend?

I had a great holiday weekend. nice and relaxing and quiet!
Thank you for visiting my blog! I love reading your comments!
What are you taking in school? I am looking at going back to college in Sept.08, for Dental Hygiene and am upgradeing my diploma right now. Took Chemistry last year and I begin Biology on the 18th. It's tough being 36, working full time, going to night school...but next year is terrifying! Quitting my day care business and starting college full time? I must be nuts! LOL!
