I know it has been too long since I posted anything. I have been in a bit of a doldrums. I have found out recently that I have an under active thyroid (hypo) and it could be part of my energy level issues. I have been on medication for a month and it really seems to be helping. Work has gotten very busy but I still find it to be relaxed compared to public accounting. David and Ashleigh both started school this past week so we are getting out of our summer randomness into a schedule.

Speaking of school, I have been pondering over Ashleigh's Kindergarten first day pics. I want to do a layout with a school feel but softer since she was in this beautiful pink dress. I think I might cut out letters of various sizes and fonts in a soft red or blue. I think I will make a random border to give it the feel but not over the top. I might even just stamp the letters in white on a soft red cardstock. I probably should get started since I have this years first day of school to do now.

1st Grade

My little girl is growing up fast. Here she is the first day of 1st grade. She likes her teacher and is enjoying school. I am glad she is liking it and anticipate this to be a good year for her.

I have been thinking....

I have been thinking that I need to add more about me in the scrapbooks. For that matter, I need to add more about David as well. Little things Ashleigh's kids might like to know when they are older. Here is a list of tidbits about me.

  1. I hate doing housework. Definitely.

  2. I am addicted to Crystal Light.

  3. I love cheese. Any kind anywhere

  4. I hated my curly hair until I got out of high school. I always wanted straight long blond hair.

  5. I have had more embarrassing incidents at work than any human should have to endure

  6. I was a Girl Scout from 2nd grade through high school

  7. My first car was a hand me down Honda Civic Hatchback - Red, which I backed into more objects than I can count on my hands

  8. If couch lounging was an Olympic sport, I would win a Gold many times over

  9. I love off the beaten path chick flicks. Heck, I love just about any chick flick.

  10. I did not start to wear make-up until I was 18

  11. I knew I wanted to study accounting as a junior in high school

  12. I went through sorority rush on crutches having had knee surgery a month before

  13. My vocabulary and spelling are atrocious because I missed several years of English during junior high to attend gifted student classes (SPARK). Thank heavens for spell check!

  14. My mom would send me to spend two to three weeks with my grandmother in Belzoni, Mississippi during the summers when I was younger. Grandmother would take me to the cable office and I loved running the cash register.

  15. I distinctly remember having dinner with my family (Mom, John & Edward)and laughing until my sides hurt. We sure did have fun picking on each other. Shoot, we still do it today!

Hope you learned somtething about me today!
