Terribly busy and extremely bored of stamping?? Oh my.

I have a feeling I might like the new catty too! haha. So it's not so bad that I don't have one in my hands just yet.

I think being on design teams drained me of my mojo. I've been giving it a break other than my monthly get-together. The new catalog has been a great boost. I'm beginning to get interested again. Lots of great papers!

well, across the street from the Lake, yes. You'd think she was moving to the other side of the world, not 8 houses down the street. haha. Even on the last day at the old house, she called just before the piano movers were there...saying "I don't know if I can do it."

I said, "mom, it's a done deal. You have moved." haha

she moved into my grandparents house. It's a lot bigger...a total different sort of house. The houses on the side streets are bungalows/starter homes. The ones on Lake Road (wh ich runs parallel to the Lake) are mansions on the Lake, and nice big houses on the south side of the street.

It's a worry...moms worry.

They were limited. But I bowed out before my time was up. It wasn't fun anymore.

How exciting! We drive down Lake once in awhile... from Bay Village down to Vermillion. I'll have to look for her!

plus, she lived in the old house for over 30 years...there are a lot of memories. But the "Lake House" has memories and space to build more memories. It's just rather very quiet. She wants us to come home all the time. And I would if gas wasn't so costly.

Oh.. she's over there! I used to date a guy who had an uncle that lived over there. But his house is now a development.

I'm sure. I missed her at the last Scholastic event. I had to work the week-end because of my job at the school.

That's what I'm hoping for eventually. I think our secretary is going to retire in a year or so. She's been teaching me everything under the assumption that I'll be her replacement. It would be cool.. but we'll see. There's always politics involved!

No dog right now. After Scottie died, we decided to wait until next summer. I still miss him a lot. But we need some time before we go through it again.

How awful! Sounds like a similar story to Rusty.. a couple summers back. What is up!

We were good and took Scottie to the vet all the time. But how do you know when a dog has a massive tumor growing in his abdomen... I guess we are grateful for the year we had with him.

Maybe you mean Parvo... Rusty had something similar, but a different name.

I have heard something like that, but who really knows. Scottie never got it, even tho Rusty had it.
