YOU GET A GOLD STAR !
Good Friday morning to ya!
So sorry to be missing yesterday, but instead of my half day my boss let me take the whole day as a vacation day so that we could go and get the M&M's school shopping done before everyone else in town hit the stores. :O) Huge smile over here. We all got up at 5:30am and hit the road for our morning walk. Jerry decided not to feed Sunday until we were just getting ready to leave and that seemed to keep her from following us. Because I had the extra time we were able to get in another long walk. That really makes my whole day. We were back home and ready to go shopping by 8am when most of the stores in this smallish town are just opening. It was so nice to actually be the first shoppers over at Staples. On Tuesday after we had registered the kids for school we tried to go there for their supplies and you could barely turn around in that huge store, so we just left. I am glad that we did it all today. It was an awesome day and of course we surprised them both with the news that I was home for the whole day and we were going to get this all done and still have the afternoon to play and go swimming. As you all know I love days like that.
Now as I did have the whole day I had time to make a new sign for our store. After all the fair was last week and you can't have a sign that says it's fair week still up. lol... We decided that it would be a great idea to go with the whole back to school theme, so I pulled out Teacher Anya and boy did I have a great time enlarging her and giving her an old time black board to write on with that wonderfully dusty chalk. I pulled some of last year's show&tell 4x6 paper pack from WeR Memory Keepers out of my stash to help it look like she had decorated her classroom for her new students and to pull the colors for her outfit. I am very happy with how this turned out. It measures 12x12 and I think it will really look great on our display at work. lol....
That's all for me today. I hope that you all have a wonderful Friday and I will talk at you tomorrow.
Hugs, Lisa G
