Just A Bit of Random

Well, another Tuesday has gone by without any tips. My apologies to my few readers who actually look forward to it. The days are all running together right now and I truly forget what day it actually is sometimes. So, in Elmer Fudd fashion, I will dub this "Wandom Wednesday".

Our boxes are due to arrive on Friday. Believe it or not, I am actually looking forward to it. Having crisp new boxes that need to be pried apart and put together gives me warm fuzzies. It will be kind of like getting new school supplies for me. I'm sure the excitement will last about as long as it takes to pack one box. For those of you thinking we could save money by getting used boxes... there are critters that travel in those used boxes. When you are packing up all of your belongings indefinitely, you don't want critters growing in them. I speak from experience. And yes, I know they can be in new boxes too, but the likelihood of it happening is more rare. Me and my big mouth... satan, you may not grab ahold of that!

The rain is trickling out of the drainpipes this morning as I write and it makes me sleepy. My beauties are sleeping through it and so are the fur babies at my feet. This is peace.

I received my Creating Keepsakes magazine yesterday and it had the cutest new line of products on the back. So, so cute. Makes me smile. Well, I guess there aren't many scrapbooking products that don't. I look forward to the day when I can put all else aside and scrap until my heart's content.

World Cup Soccer seems to be on the minds of hubby and my oldest. It begins this week so I know that as I pack, the sounds of soccer will be in the background. Instead of my preferred choice of football. Well, that's actually everyone's preferred choice in this family. Wrong time of year.

I want to close by linking to over to this post where Ginger at dwelling in the house has a giveaway going on. She also shares pics of her beautiful hydrangeas. Oh, how I wish we had some!

Enjoy your day, my friends! God's blessings on you today!

I liked new boxes when we moved also. They inspired me to pack neatly, sort of like a fresh notebook makes me want to write neater!
I am going to a scrap weekend in a couple of weeks with a friend who is a Creative Memories consultant. Love their products!
Hope your day continues to be peaceful.:)

Creative Memories is how I got started, Ginger! I got away from them just because we moved away from my consultant and then because of the way scrapbooking took off. They have come a long way in the past few years though, and have a lot of cute stuff! Have a great time and do a page for me. :-)

OH, I do have to agree with the whole "new box" theory, love it!

And I'm definitely one of those Tips Tuesday fans that is waiting patiently for your new life to settle, lol!

Thanks for your comment on my WFW post! If you lived near me, you'd be part of the "oh-so-fab" group, too :))

I do agree on the box thing. My hubby is a professional mover. He drives for a nationwide moving company and travels all over the US.

(to answer your question....yes, we stayed together through all those High School years)
