They're back...

in school! Aren't I supposed to be happy that the kids are back in school? For some reason, I'm not. I go to call them at least 3 times a day and I can't because now they're in SCHOOL. I can only talk to Sally so much. I miss talking to them. What's wrong with me?...I love talking to my children. They are pretty cool. So, the girl has decided not to be in the musical this year, but instead "help out". They boy has entered ultimate geekdom and joined band. His instrument of choice? The trombone. The case is almost as tall as he is. We'll see how this goes with him trucking that thing to school every day.

Real Estate class - day 2

Day 2 of Principles of Real Estate and I've got about 5 hours of 30 completed. The key is to take good notes. I can't wait to finish this first course and move on to Principles of Real Estate II. Some day I'll be a successful REALTOR (R).

Real Estate

Well, I finally started working on a goal that's been brewing for about 2 years now. I started my first online real estate course today. Principles of Real Estate I through the continuing ed program at UT. It almost makes me feel like a college student...almost. Anyway, so far so good. The plan is that I'll have my license in under a year. Wish me luck!

Purse mania

So, I have started to make some animal head purses for my daughter because along with "dresses" these purses are going to be her "thing" this year. She's a junior in high school. So far, I've made her a bird and a moose and a hippo. I'll have to take pictures and post them later. I've had a lot of interest from people when they see her carrying them. I think I'll whip some up to sell at the local craft shows coming up.

Not that I spend all my time with the girl. I have some groovy new pictures of my boy too. I'll post those when I get home tonight.

Some scrapbook pages...

Some great ideas from Elsie's blog party.

The girl's fashion show

It's that time of year again, for the back to school shopping trips to begin. I've been scarfing up school supplies (which I love to do) and the girl and I went clothes shopping this past weekend. Thankfully, this year she decided her thing was going to be dresses. :) that means no more tight t-shirts with the equally tight jeans. Big and blousy is in. ;) phew

See some of the outfits

It's about time!

It's about time that I finally started an official blog. I have always thought, "why do I need to type everything I'm thinking. Who would want to read that." Then I stumbled upon Elsie Flannigan's blog and I just thought, how's like a little glimpse into who she is and how she's feeling right now. And I thought well, this is a good way to share all that with my family and friends that are so far away. I'm in Austin, Texas and they're all back in PA. So, this spot, I vow, will be my link to share everything with them. Everything that is going on not only with me, but with my husband and my kids.
