Yikes! I’m in a hurry. I’m late for a date with Neal in Middle Earth!

I had a little more time to work on my LO today since I stayed home from school so the mobile vet could come over. I used the Reflections book to find a sketch and continued to use up my Unforgettable kit…I still have a lot left!

I’m going to the school play tonight and need to leave in a few minutes, so I don’t have time to write a full review of the Star Trek. Let’s just say I loved it! I can’t wait to see it in IMAX this weekend.

Here’s a photo of my poor baby getting shaved. I’ll post the “after” shots tomorrow…she looks so funny!

I’m back to 12×12 today. The prompt challenged me to use ribbon, and I really did intend on using more when I started this LO, but I’m anxious to go to Star Trek tonight and wanted to get it done ASAP! With that said, I’m heading out to the movie right now!

The Learn Something New Every Day prompt for 9/27/06 was “Something I shouldn’t forget….” Talk about a perfect prompt as my journal is completely empty for that day! I honestly have no memory of the day because I didn’t write anything down. My guess is that I was busy packing for my trip and writing lesson plans since I was leaving for LA the next day directly from school. But, I didn’t take the time to write it down, so I don’t know for sure. I have no memory of what I was feeling or thinking, because I didn’t take two seconds to jot down a sentence or two in my journal. This is such a valuable lesson! So many of us put off journaling, but what happens when you go back a month or year or THREE years later? Memories fade if we don’t record them in some form in the here and now. I challenge you all to start keeping a journal or blog or daily Facebook/Twitter update. Anything to record your memories so that they aren’t lost forever. Something I shouldn’t forget…write it down!

Exercise Update: Sadly…nothing to report.

Since our challenge today was to go with the flow, I put away my cruise photos and pulled out the Learn Something New Every Day project I’ve been working on for THREE years! I am in a Star Trek mood this week as I anticipate the new movie opening on Friday, and my Sci-Fi class finished watching Star Trek: Of Gods & Men today. I decided to go with the flow and finish the last Star Trek LO for that project since it was on my mind! At some point, I still need to journal about my conversation with Grace Lee Whitney and my interview with the lead singer of Electric Crush, but at least one moment of that day is documented. I only have 9 pages left to finish this mini-album. I finished many of them during the 2/08 LOAD challenge on BPS, so I think I need to make it my goal to finish the rest of them this month.

Exercise Update–it was raining this afternoon, so Kristina and I didn’t do our walk. I did come home and exercise for an hour (eliptical, back align and abs).

Here is my 4th LOAD challenge. The goal was to incorporate squares in the LO…thank goodness for CTMH preprinted pages! I only had 1/2 to get this done and I finished with time to spare, which was really good because my card reader flaked out on me and I had to restart my computer.

I gave a card workshop to a great group of ladies tonight. It was a prize in a charity auction to support the drama club!

Exercise Update–due to the workshop, I didn’t have time to work out tonight, but Kristina and I did take a long walk around the school this morning during planning.

Wow! I was cutting it close tonight. I spent the whole evening getting ready for a card workshop I’m giving tomorrow. It wasn’t until 10:20pm that I realized I hadn’t done a LO yet. Thank goodness for CTMH level 1 kits! I used the Unforgettable kit with a little stamping using Comments (I LOVE this new stamp set!). I didn’t plan out my journaling, so I ended up going on a bit of an anti-smoking rant…LOL! Now I’m going to bed!

I had a great National Scrapbooking Day! Five great women came over and did some make-n-takes and browsed through the new Idea Book. It was a lot of fun, but I’m really tired. I cleaned up the make-n-take area before dinner, but I’m leaving the rest of it until tomorrow. 🙂 I did finish my LO for today…thank goodness most of it was complete and all I had to do was add the embellishments and journaling. These photos are really bad, so I’ll have to retake them before uploading them to my CTMH website. I just wanted to get them up here for the LOAD challenge.

Well, as bad as I feel right now–splitting headache–I am happy to have my first layout uploaded for the May LOAD challenge. This is the first page of CTMH’s new Moon Doggie Workshop on the Go. I absolutely love these papers and can’t wait to use the rest of the packet with my Disney Cruise photos. I’m also very thankful that we went to Mexico last year and not this year! I was home all day, so I spent much more time on this LO than I will on most of my other LOAD pages. The 2nd page is almost finished; I just need to add the final embellishments and journaling tomorrow.

I’m looking forward to the big National Scrapbooking Day extravaganza at my house tomorrow! I still have a lot to do to get ready…I better get to it!
