Two Months Later...

Where has the time gone??? I can't believe it's been two months since I posted anything. I've been busy with a couple of things. I've been trying to clean out my storage unit in Sparta. The crap has been in there way too long and I'm finding that I have an emotional attachment to very little of it. I have found some great treasures though. Like my favorite salt and pepper shakers that I kind of wondered if I would ever find them. They are now where they belong in my cupboard filled with salt and pepper. I've donated a lot of stuff but I have thrown out much more than I've donated or kept. The stuff has been breeding over there and everytime I go back, it surprises me how much more stuff is there than I remembered from the last time I've been there.

Another thing I've been working on are the yearly calendars that I make. I started late this year and really didn't get going until the middle of March. But I've been smokin on them and I plan to be done with all 12 months by the end of June. So far I have 10 months completely finished. So eventhough I haven't been working in my stamp room as much as I wanted to, I have been plugging along on my stamping project and will have plenty of time to relax closer to the holidays.

I did take a week's vacation in May and my sister came up. We were going to finish cleaning my storage unit in Sparta but the Friday before vacation I found out Mabel needed surgery because she had a growth on her gums. The vet was certain it was cancer, but we got really good news that it was just a calcium growth. My prayers were answered. It kind of disrupted the whole week as she had surgery on my first day off. It did not help keeping me focused. My sister and I went up to the storage unit after dropping Mabs off at the vet but I was pretty distracted. We did take a big load of stuff to charity and brought a load of trash home. Here's the funny part...I pull up the dumpster at the apartment complex and they are painting the damn catwalk. I was freaking out because I had two huge bags of stuff in the back seat to dump before I had to go to pick up Mabel. So I ran the trash over to my storage unit here in Holland. Went back the next day to get the trash out of storage to throw away. What a day. I tell ya!!!

Anyway...not much else is new. Oh wait...my friends Debbie and Gordy that lived (yes I said "lived") in Denver and said they would never leave there have moved back to Michigan. WTF???

So I leave you with that!!! Talk at you soon!!!
