I scrapped!!

Wow, I can't believe that it has been MONTHS since I've posted! Good thing I know all of you are not sitting around hanging on my last word! It seems like so much has changed and yet nothing has. Chase started kindergarten last September, can't remember if I mentioned that or not, he's been doing well, although he's still a little cling-on when I try to leave in the morning. His homework is another story altogether as well, but we've been working on it. He had a sleepover with a friend this weekend at our house and they played exceptionally well together, save the fact that Rayna was the dreaded "annoying little sister" and let me tell you, she sure played her part. Every time Chase's friend came near her, Rayna hit her, and Chase and his friend spent most of the time telling her to go away, so sad to say she spent a lot of time watching her new favorite movie Beauty and the Beast. Seriously, she's watched it so many times I have it memorized! I've tried to get her on to something else but she just loves it so much, she won't watch anything else. Rayna has also been doing fine at the day home, we had a little scare at the beginning of the month and thought she had broken her arm, when I picked her up on the Friday she wouldn't use her right arm at all. She wasn't crying about it at all but she wouldn't use it so we took her to emergency and they did x-rays and said she was fine, but a few days later our family doctor called to say they thought she had a break and needed a cast, so back we went and they did more x-rays and it turns out all is fine. She's back to normal now, one of the kids at the day home sat on her so I think she just strained it and it was pretty tender for a couple days. She's pretty tough, so for her to not be using it we knew something was off. She's very much in "no me help" mode lately, everything is her way or the highway. Oh I wish I could skip past the two's and three's!! She is miserable to get out of bed in the mornings (don't have any idea where she gets that from!!) but for what she gives out in attitude she makes up for in cuteness, and she knows it! And myself, well I've been doing well, work has calmed down a bit with the new system (only for them to inform us we're getting a new one in a couple months-AGAIN!). It was pretty crazy before Christmas but this month has been warmer and that affects our fuel sales so it hasn't been so nutzo. I spend a lot of time on my iPhone, which I got back in November or somewhere in there. I absolutely love it, and use it for everything, from checking the weather and counting my weight watcher points to playing games and remembering birthdays. It annoys my husband so bad that I bring it to bed every night to read!! Probably why I never seem to turn on my computer anymore, as most stuff I can do from my phone now and it just seems so much easier! I bought a treadmill for Christmas and have been trying to fit some exercise in as well, but it's not as often as I'd like. Work in progress I suppose. I still need to de-clutter my house, and my word for 2011 is LESS. Less clutter, less stuff, less spending, less debt, less stress, less busy, just LESS everything! I seriously need to reorganize several areas of my life so I can get back to the things that really matter. I should get going to bed, a hot bath and my bed were calling my name a couple hours ago, and then I ended up scrapping instead! Here is my layout if you want to see it, I haven't done one since October. Seriously?! I did it for the Designer Spotlight challenge over at Oscraps, I used the kit "Dialogue" by Paislee Press and One Little Bird Designs, and the template I used is by Paislee as well and is a freebie there right now too. Enjoy the rest of your week, and maybe I'll pop on more often than once every 4 months, but hey, no promises!!

Beware the few racy photos...thought it was worth it to see all the other ones!
