help i'm broken

I happened to walk to closely by the sofa...I caught my knee on the corner and it pulled my kneecap out of place. dr. term is dislocated patella. the paramedics came and put it back in place. that is when i realized my arm also hurt from the fall... so off to the ER i went. the knee should be fine in a few days and with some physical therapy, the arm is a fractured radius. it will take a few weeks to heal. until then i can't do much, including typing. it has taken me 20 minutes to type this one handed. until later...

I got a little behind

I still have been scrapping and cleaning, but I haven't been blogging. This is harder than I thought to post everyday. I have also been doing pretty good on the whole eating better and exercise thing.

Well here are the last few days scrapbooking pages. It is coming along nicely. I can't wait to be all caught up on layouts, that were half done. I don't have photos of the kids room which is what we have been cleaning and organizing. Have a great weekend, I hope to scrapbook most of the weekend, so check back on Monday for new layouts.

Dang I missed Sunday

I missed Sunday because I was so tired I fell asleep to fast. I didn't scrapbook a layout on Sunday, but I did 3 on Saturday so I'm still good. I cleaned up my treadmill and got it dusted off and ready to use. The shelf above the treadmill was full of car stuff and boring to look at. So I made it pretty.

Doesn't it look nice?

And here is my layout for the day.

I also got Emma's desk into her room. We didn't have to buy one, because Heidi was ready to get rid of the one in her room. Here is how it turned out.

She really like having a place to color, play school and do homework. The carousel is from pampered chef, I found it at a 2nd hand store for $1 and used it to hold all the markers and crayons.

Today's Layouts

Yes that is plural I got more than one done today, but i didn't do any cleaning. the journaling is little notes for each of my family members in the envelope.

The march layout is pretty simple and fun to put together. Only making the lion and the lamb were hard.

Here is the April layout. I had fun doing calendar pages today, and hopefully I will get more done tomorrow.

today's projects

so today I decided to work on the hall colset. This is a closet you don't open unless you want something to fall on your head.

I decided the vaccuum needed a new home in the laundry room or master closet. The storage shoe thing, is so old it doesn't hold it's shape so everything falls out of it.

I took everything out of there, and then I pulled a different shelving unit out of my daughters room. She wasn't using it anyway.

Now I have a basket for all the vaccuum attachments that were everywhere. I also have a basket for all the extra daycare clothes and diapers. Then I have my diapers and wipes and changing pad shelf. The extra folding chairs fit in here and so did the family kites, and the baby toys. And nothing falls on your head.

Okay on to the layout of the day for today. It is my calendar kit from last year. Yes it has taken me a year to get the photos and journaling on the page.

New Years Resolution

I have decided to do things a bit different this year. My "to do list" is going to be different. I have told myself that each day I will make a list. "If I accomplish only one thing each day it will be ..." Today's thing, was to clean the pantry. Here is what my pantry looks like. I forgot the before shot.

I also decided to do a layout a day for the month of January. These are not all new layouts, just ones that were not finished. They need to be journaled or a title or something. Here is today's layout.

This is my cute little nephew. I love these photos of him. Unfortunately my camera flashed on the middle photo. I have also decided to try and use up my stash so I didn't buy anything for this layout. This paper is about 5 years old, but it worked so great for these photos.

Check back daily to see more layouts and more organizing.
