Ok seriously.....

I need to get my act together!! Bad blogger, bad blogger!! I can't believe it's been almost a month since I posted last!! But honestly, there really hasn't been too much to blog about.

My family has all been through the first colds (or was it a flu??) of the season. We're all on the mend, thanks to Vitamin C, echinacea and lots of extra rest.

It's done nothing but rain off and on here for weeks. I'm sick of it.

My husband and I have lost another grandparent - this time it was his Grandma. We knew her better than my Beppe. We are sad. I am realizing that life is short and time with family should be precious, so I am trying to make the best of every minute of every day.

This past weekend the kids and I drove up to visit my sister and her family in Timmins. By myself. That's right, just me - the only driver - and three kids. It's about 8 hours and 700 km north of where I am. This also includes driving on Highway 400 - something that I've never been comfortable with. I hate merging onto a high speed highway. But, I did it!!!!! So super proud of myself for sure, plus now that I know I can do it, I can do it more. While we were there I did a bit of scrappy shopping - bought some cute stamps and a new boarder punch....... hmmmm perhaps a card making day should be in the order??

Speaking of scrappy stuff, not too much of that has been going on in this house lately. And I'm ok with that. It's good to have a break once in awhile. But, I'll leave you with a couple of LO's recently done for 52 Sketches..52 Weeks.

Have a great day!
