A Productive Day!!

Well, it's 3 PM and I've had quite a productive day so far. I've gotten 6 different cards made (see the above pictures). Mind you, no housework has gotten done, and the one load of laundry that I put into the washer has yet to make it to the dryer!! I guess I'm not a great multi-tasker. I think that's another skill I've lost since I finished school. I used to be able to study and watch TV and talk all at the same time!!, now I can't even listen to Bevan if I'm watching TV!! The bad thing is that TV usually wins, and Bevan is the one who usually gets ignored. I'm such a bad girlfriend!! I always eventually ask him what it was he said, after all, he can repeat himself, and if I miss something on TV I might never get to hear it again!! (just kidding)

Speaking of Bevan, today is his last day of work. He's at
Rainbow Valley for the summer again, as he was last summer. The very sad thing is that this is the last day that Rainbow Valley will ever be open!! It's closing forever. It's a pretty big deal here on PEI.

Sunday, September 04, 2005


What a great day. I get to experience the relaxation of Sunday without the crankiness because I have to go back to work tomorrow. You've gotta love long weekends. It's really cool (temperature I mean) this morning. You can tell that fall is just around the corner. This time of year always reminds me of going back to school. Just this morning I got this little feeling of dread as I thought of busy classes, tests, etc... and then I realized that I don't have to worry about that. I don't have to worry about coming home in the evenings and reading textbooks and doing homework. I really don't miss that part of school. I do feel that my brain is starting to shrivel (is that how you spell that??) up though. I guess I just proved my point, I don't even know how to spell anymore. It's nice to be able to sit on the couch and watch TV or scrapbook and make cards and not feel guilty because I should be doing something school related.

Yeah, I Scrapbooked!!

I actually got some scrapbooking done today. I've been in a rut lately, felt like I didn't have any pictures, but I've realized I have to get out of scrapbooking events only. This page is an example of my new scrapbooking. I love the journalling and I'm very happy with how it turned out.

Dancing Queen

Well, it's Saturday of the long weekend already. It's too bad that weekdays just drag on and the weekend days fly by. Oh well. We've had a good weekend so far. Bevan was home by 6:30 last night, then we went to Pizza Delight, the most garlicy (is that a word??) place on earth, for supper. Then we came home and played Scrabble (I kicked his ass by the way. How could I not win with a word like kingdom??) while watching one of my favorite movies - 13 Going On 30. While watching the scene when everyone at the party started dancing to "Thriller" I realized that most of my favorite movies involve dancing in some way. There are the ones with obvious dancing: Dirty Dancing, Flashdance, Footloose. Then there is Grease, which of course has singing which always goes along with dancing!! And now I'm just remembering that great dance scene in Napolean Dynamite. Wow. Maybe if Bevan lied to me and told me there was dancing in Lord of the Rings I would watch that with him!! (Although that would be a very mean trick!!) Anyways, I'm off to enjoy my Saturday.

Too Much

The beginning of my long weekend has become depressing. My addiction to the news is what is causing all this I think. You see all these horrible stories and pictures of everything going on in Louisiana and Mississippi, etc... and it is just plain depressing. And on top of that and closer to home gas prices here on the island started out the day at $1.10 per liter and have now jumped to $1.30 per liter. I know it is petty compared to what the people of New Orleans and other areas are going through but still depressing. Having to pay $50.00 on top of this just to leave PEI makes it tempting to sit at home and never go anywhere. Kind of makes me want to move closer to home too. Who knows, aaaaaahhhhh. I don't really like stress anymore. I'm going to do something mindless. Nintendo Gamecube (Super Mario Sunshine) and a big cup of hot coffee, here I come.

September 1st???

September 1st already?? What happened to August, or to June and July for that matter?? Oh well, back to routine I guess. Nothing in my life is really any different between August and September, yet September seems to bring things back to normal and away from the craziness of summer. I'm really looking forward to the long weekend this weekend. I actually didn't even realize that I didn't have to work on Monday until about 2 days ago, so I guess that makes it even more exciting. I'm really looking forward to making cards and maybe even doing some scrapbooking over the weekend. Bevan will be at work a lot, since it is the very last weekend that Rainbow Valley will be open. That's pretty sad.
