re-somethinged...

so this little break was awesome! nice having the time off. to just be or do. nice to not be exhausted at the end of the week... to be able to have dinner ready for my hubby... to call around and plan some stuff for the house... to meet my hubby for lunch {even if it was mcdonalds on a picnic bench}, to get up and watch sportscenter while eating my cheerios without feeling rushed. i feel rejuvenated, refreshed, relaxed.
and as much as i enjoyed my time away... it was time to go back. i missed my girls. my patients. my silly doctors. made me think that if we have kiddos, the stay at home mom thing just might not be for me. sure then, i'll have kids to entertain me. but i truly love what i do! not sure i could stay away... maybe partime...
my productivity spurt puttered out after the first day! however, i was able to be home for the concrete people. who knew concrete was so freakin expensive?! totally worth it tho... no deck maintence! yeah, i'm lazy. still have the details to figure out. i'm way excited although overwhelmed with the process...
still have to sanitize the basement. nick decided to almost cut his thumb in half and i'm gonna need his help. the silly boy had difficulty with a kahlorabi. {seriously, it's not in the dictionary and i haven't the foggiest idea of how to spell it... sorry brandy. i know you love us grammatically incorrect people! :oP}.
ditched the gym while i was off. kicked bootay on the diet. well, eating healthier... those darn rep lunches kill me! now i'm a little excited when i step on the scale! i know, shoot me for that statement!
organized my scrap area again. feels good. hope to do some more organizing here and there... loving the $1 tins from target. and have a really cool glass jar with a metal lid that i'm diggin. kinda like a qtip holder or what the docs keep their tongue depressors in. super cute and totally shows off my new doodlebug flower collection! oh and my patient brought in an old yankee candle jar. cleaned the wax out. it now holds my knk ribbon. anyone know how the heck to do that?? i would love to know! :o)

kahlorabi? I'm lost :)
Sounds like you're officially organized, just in time for the swap!
I hear ya on the price of concrete.
The only thing I know about candles is to freeze them, and then you can scrape the wax out...

Sorry to hear about Nick's thumb... Chris is still recovering from his thumb incident. Having a one-handed hubby sucks! Glad you had a great weekend. :D

Bummer about the thumb. How do you get the wax out of a candle jar?! I'm still waiting for that answer!

You need to get back to Target's $1 bin, it is a scrapper's dream. I picked up 5 frames to alter and they are going to rock. Spelling, I will forgive because it is you.

LOL! I've been using old candle jars for 2 years! I love the ones with the metal lids.. very charming. :) I always heard you should turn them upside down in the freezer on a paper towel and let the wax fall out. :oP don't try it... doesn't work. A few years ago, I started cleaning them out by running really hot water inside the jar; it quickly softens the leftover wax. Then I just use the wrong end of a spoon to scrape out the wax. Then I use a very soapy scrubby (regular dish soap) to clean out the rest. Voila!

Sounds like you got a lot accomplished. That's more than I can say for my week off.
