in honor of...

earth day... we planted a tree. well, we did pull the old one out, so does that still count? it's a tina crab. cute. the hibiscus just doesn't like indiana weather, hopefully this one fares better! and i got my first sun of the season! sooo gotta love that!
and productivity rules. feels good to get some stuff done around the house. to make some tentative plans... decks, sheds. to reorganize the garage. love it now! still have got to tackle our closet. it will happen!
kelly, i totally thought of you this week. nick and i bought an almost $300 dollar ladder. i couldn't help but thinking this could be yet another sign of growing up!! i mean, who really considers a ladder a good investment??? grownups!! ;)
nick also got around to trying to balance the checkbook. it's been quite some time. huh, babe? =) totally disgusted at the scrapbooking purchases. totally hankering down even more now that i know the numbers. i emailed gbof to cancel... only have one other kit club besides knk. so i'm hoping to behave myself. totally took the hs pencils out of my cart! and am hitting staples. krystn, you have convinced me i need an easy button and some of the proceeds go to charity. and the buttons are just too darn cute. tried to go today and get one but they were sold out?! oh well, gotta head to staples.com and buy me some crayola pencils and an easy button! oh and maybe some binders for 8.5x11 layouts. crap, i was being good. so i won't. i'll just keep calling the staples by my work to see when the buttons arrive! gotta determine a feasible budget. gasp, i hate that word!!

I hear ya on the ladder. I think I spend so much on scrap stuff to compensate for the money I have to spend on boilers and grown up crap like that!

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one in need of an easy button :)

Imagine my excitement over the prospect of buying a new sliding screen door that will actually work correctly. (And can someone remind me to put the old one back in when Jon's dog comes for a week to my house?).

And let me tell you the party I had when I bought 2 new tires for my car. woo... hoo. :o\

enjoy the ladder. and the easy button. But just remember that Krystn's ruling the world with hers so you may be able to get yours on sale. And I challenge you to do a page about it. :)

Look at you actin' all grown up! Wow, what an awesome world it would be if you and Krystn were both runnin' the world!

should have seen my excited husband over his new lawn mower a couple of weekends ago.... lmao. Good luck with that Easy button! For me, the first step is acceptance, and I'm just not steppin' yet! rofl

You should see our Home Depot bills over the last two and a half years, we are grown ups and then some. If you want to really feel good, get a pressure washer. Pure bliss.

Totally hunkering down on scrapbook spending by cancelling gbof huh? Wow. You're going to be saving a whole $7.50 a month. At least we'll have enough for 2 more gallons of gas. I really don't care what you spend on scrapbooking. Just don't yell at me when I buy video games :P
