Last week was such a CraZy busy week..........

Wow, what a week it was last week...
I started my Part-time job at the bakery, which
btw, I LOVE!!  Its so much fun, I still
have alot to learn, but I'm really enjoying
getting out of the house for a couple of hours
and having some adult conversation...yah!!!
Not only did I start work, but Danielle is right in the
middle of signing up for High School classes(omg,
I can't believe I have an almost high schooler, where
did the time go...), but bill and I have been going to meetings
for different programs they are offering and just basic information
about what classes they need to take and what classes go with what,
CraZy!!! But we got her all signed up for ALL honor classes, who knew
that if you take English I Honors, that that goes with World History Honors
and that Geometry Honors goes with Biology Honors...Holy Cow, I was so
confused by the time I left that parent mtg.  But we got her
schedule done and turned into her counselor.  And she also made
Marching Band, which she had to audition for and made it, she super
But on top of that Kaleb is having some issues with school, so I've
been on the phone with the school counselor trying to get that worked out!! 
All I can say about that, is from now on, I will listen to my first instant and
if I don't think a teacher is a good fit for him, then i WILL move him.  Never
So all in all, it was a SUPER crazy emotional busy week for me!!  But let me tell you
when I got home from work on Friday and after picking Dj up from school, I sat down
at my scrapbook table and felt soooo good.

So I started working on my Survivor layout for Week 5 over at
Tallyscrapper, since my team is "Team Boston Rob" and he is famous
for his Boston RedSock hats, our challenge was to use a hat in either the Title, in a photo,
or a hat embellishment.  Well, I went with the Hat photos of my daughter and her
little hat phase that she went through a couple years back.  We also had to use a big
"B" on our layout, atleast an inch tall.
I also used Sketch 112 from "The Scrappiest" for this layout as well...

"Be Bold"

Have a wonderful week, my friends!!

Kaleb's Birthday, Scrappiest Sketch #111 and some GOOD news....

So I will start with the GOOD news....
I got a job...YAH ME. 
I decided a couple months back
that it was high time I find me a
pt job and well,
my good friend, Susan texted me
about a week ago and wanted
to know if I was still interested in a pt job
at the bakery....heck yeah!!  So I went
in last Wednesday for a little interview
with Amy(she owns the White Oak Bakery)
and she hired me...believe me, this is much
needed...I need to get out of the house and have
some adult time...AWAY from the kids.
So I will be working M-F from 11-2 and maybe
some Saturdays once Soccer is over for the season.
Its not about the money, cuz I will NOT be making
that much, but more for my sanity!! So tomorrow is
my first I will let you know how it goes!!!

Also, my Kaleb had a birthday on Friday...he turned "10"!!
Omg, where has the time gone....we are going to have a
bowling party for him next Sunday with a bunch of his
friends...he's really excited!!!
But in the meantime, we went ahead and gave him
one of his presents...

He loves playing "War" in the neighborhood with his buddies, so we got him an air-soft gun(believe me, he does not play with the bb's), its just for play. He loves it and was outside all day and weekend playing with it!!
Also, i don't know what was going on with our cat and Kaleb, but
I got this photo of the two of them...Must have been serious, cuz it looks like Oreo is
getting read the right
Oreo, you had better watch out!!(honestly Oreo can hold his own, if he gets
tired of Kaleb, he will not hestitate to bite

Also, today is MONDAY which means its Reveal day for another fabulous sketch
from the "Scrappiest" Sketch #111...
And here is my layout for this sketch...

"Dj's Birthday Party"
Yes, I'm still working on my daughter's birthday from this past October.

Thanks for stopping by my blog...hope you come over to the "Scrappiest" and check
