taking a little break

I am going to take about a week off of blogging for a few reasons.

I am an all or nothing kinda gal...I have little success walking the middle ground. I have so much that I want to accomplish and maybe if I stay off the computer I will be able to get something done! My husband is doubtful that I could go a week without blogging. I'll miss it so! But hopefully I'll have lots of pictures to show off my very productive week.

Plus it is my husband's birthday next Sunday and I have to do some preparing for that. Birthdays are a big deal around here. Last year for my birthday my husband sent me to a hotel overnight for some much needed alone time. He stayed home with our 2 boys and our baby girl who was just over 2 months old at the time. He had set up the hotel room with flowers, presents, a lovely card, chocolates on the pillows and music playing. It was fabulous!!! He is the best....I am so fortunate to have him in my life. Anyway, I am trying to work on some grand plans to make his day very special.

So, I guess that I'll catch up with you all in a week!

Gratitudes:
1. A sweet and handy husband. (he can fix almost anything...which comes in handy when you are homeowners!)
2. My friend Vasha, who is always willing to answer my knitting and crocheting questions.
3. My boys, who are becoming such great and willing helpers.

A whole week, are you sure??? Just kidding, I completely understand. I sit down at this dumb machine and time goes by on fast forward!! Tell Kevin happy birthday for us and good luck on the b-day plans. I will miss you while you are gone, but I will try to survive :)

Hope you are enjoying your break! But not too much so that you want to come back!!! Just wanted to let you know, at the weird store that I found all my cool trim at (you'll have to update yourself with my blog to know what I am talking about) they had cafeteria style lunch trays for 4/99 cents!!! You mentioned you missed out on some a while ago...any interest? I would be happy to pick some up for you if you would like them. Just thought I would check!

I had two weeks off blogging (similar reasons)and almost didn't make it. Hope you survive!

Tell Kevin we hope he had a great birthday! I would have mailed a card but with everything going on and being in Minneapolis, well you know how things go. Let him know that we really appreciate him and hope he had a wonderful day!

Hope YOU had a good break and I look forward to catching up with all you have been doing this week!
