The weather around here has not been helpful either, it's raining all the time and when it's not raining, it's freezing. Weren't we supposed to have Spring by now? Yuck!
This morning Phil and I went to Mass at 10, Gabrielle was reading the introduction and was part of a skit for the homily. I must say, I am really impressed! She does a fabulous job reading, clear, concise and loud. The skit was great. All three girls did a nice job, no mikes and I could still hear them in the back. I remember last week the 7th graders, they did a little skit (not acted, just read) in front of the mikes and I could not hear a thing!
We got Gabrielle's paper from HS yesterday, she is signed up for all honors classes, except Math. I am so proud of her!!! Now to keep up the grades, it's going to be tough! She is pretty much determined to do it though and I can see a little bit of competitiveness in her which will aid her on her way! Oh kids!!! The worry has just begun! I am sure all you mothers out there know exactly what I am saying. Group hug!
On a more pleasant side, I got a lot of pages done, my relaxation of the day :)
I had this add from Sears with those large block letters and I really liked the look, so I tried to recreate it here :) I actually did this one last week, but forgot to post it
this is another one I forgot to post. I just got my new photoshop program and the new features are awesome! There were at least 6 power lines on this photo and it took me less than a minute to get them all out! I tried working with this photo before and gave up, because I couldn't do it. Love this new PS5!!!
This was for a the AAM challenge at DD, talking about what home means to you. I really liked thinking about that...
This is my Mother's Day card from Michael, made me cry when I got it. He probably thought I was a little whacky! I hope you can read the journaling...
Last but not least I finished Gabrielle's photos from the tournament. This template is just awesome, I hardly had to do anything to make this page! If you should be curious about any of this stuff, just click on the link to my gallery on the right and you can find all the info there (you are allowed to leave me comments too :))
I hope you all had a great Mother's Day. I got a peck on the cheek from my kids in the morning and that was that! They still expected dinner and whatever... at least I got a dozen roses from Phil the day before. That's why I was so happy to receive that card from Michael, at least somebody.... I must say though that at the end of the day Rachel handed me a card she drew during the day and it was really cute also!
I guess I shouldn't be complaining, they are sweethearts, but they have their moments. Oh well!
Saturday is Karate testing again, all of us have to certify, it's going to be a long day! I am supposed to jump flying side kick over three people for my break. I am just managing to jump over something lying flat on the floor for crying out loud! Old lady here, give me a break! It will be fun, I hope I won't injure somebody!
Okay, that's it for today! Come back soon :)
