Some snow day fun for you.
From the back yard.
Walking on the drifts.
School is going great and is the main cause of slacking when it comes to blogging. SO MUCH HOMEWORK! No, really though, it’s not horrible. Anatomy & Physiology is keeping me pretty busy. Micro Computer Applications utilizes Microsoft Office 2010 – a software I’ve been using for months. Sociology I haven’t formed an opinion on yet as we only meet once a week and have only had one class so far. Orientation – I should have taken as a Freshman – I do like the instructor though so maybe I’ll actually get something out of it.
Work … is going. I do still like my job but with me going back to school the decision was made that I should probably resign. My last day to work at the ACE NET offices will be March 11, 2011. A bittersweet moment I should think. I do know that going back to school was the right thing to do and that’s truly where the peace is but I will miss my friends (co-workers) as well.
Boys are HUGE!! Seriously. I can’t remember if I’ve stated this before or not but E-man can eat an entire 8 pieces of pizza all by himself in ONE sitting! I can’t remember if that’s a large or a medium but you get the point. ZigZag has decided he doesn’t like food. Or rather, that he wants a teeny bit of everything – not even enough to equal one bite most times. I’ve decided I don’t like it when their food tastes change, especially because they tend to change just as I’ve gotten used to what they have been. Aside from food, both boys are doing great in school. And they’re wearing me out talking about which sports or musical adventures they want to challenge next! Soccer. Baseball. Cub Scouts. Karate. Swimming. Drums. Bass. Guitar. It’s enough to make me dizzy!!
My passions. The things I do when I have nothing else to do – which is rare these days. Photography is on hold through the rest of January but I’m hoping to open February with a couple of contests that will be posted here so keep an eye out for those. Writing – what I would be doing. I’m feeling the need to write again so maybe I’ll start the outline for the book that’s been in my mind for ages.
Life is good. Very good. A few things I’m looking forward to: Winter Bible Seminar, Spring Break, Summer 🙂 Just to name a few. Oh, and snow!! Supposedly we’re getting snow tonight – we’ll have to wait and see how right the weather people are this time. 🙂 All in all, 2011 is looking to be a GREAT year!
I think that’s it for the moment. I know, it’s not as deep as some of the more recent posts I’ve done but life isn’t all about how deep it is. It’s all about how you handle what’s thrown at you – do you handle it with grace or do you crumble?
Well, it’s that time of year again. People have their trees up WAY too early. Christmas lights are lighting up the different towns as I drive home. It’s been 70+ degrees outside. Yup. An Oklahoma Christmas will soon be unwrapped at a home near you!
With that in mind, I’ve been looking through Christmas card options from Shutterfly. I personally prefer cards with multiple photo windows because it’s MUCH easier to tell about the year with more than one picture! And with two boys in the house there’s lots of stories to tell!
I thought I’d post links to a couple of my favorite designs for Christmas cards so far this year.
I also really, Really, REALLY like to have my Christmas Cards designed and ready to go the first week of November. I like to be that person everyone hates because I remind them to get theirs done. Here it is Thanksgiving week and I haven’t even considered what cards I want to use yet! Shutterfly has made it SO easy this year! There’s a promotion for bloggers – click here to see – to get 50 FREE cards! Whew! The easy part’s over – now on to the hard part!
I’ve used Shutterfly in the past for photobooks, mugs (great gifts for coffee/hot tea drinkers!) and Christmas cards for previous years. Looks like they’ve hit the ball out of the park with this offer though! 🙂
