God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Taking a quick break, it’s so busy at work today I can’t keep ahead of it. I’ve been working on balancing all my programs along with getting stuff ready for the 15th day. Fifteenth day in our world is the last day kids can withdrawal without getting a pass/fail grade. It’s also the day that affects their financial aid so it makes for a very busy time.

With Mom having surgery on Tuesday and me having to be off with her; I have a lot to get done today. And I’m sure I’ll be in and out of the office a couple of times during the week. I’m planning on coming in at least 3 days to do reports after she finishes with PT.

I did get my Big Picture layout posted today but don’t have it here at work where I can post it to my blog. Oh for all those Scrapbook folks Frugalities.com has 49% off today. There shipping is awfully high but their prices are worth the higher shipping. Also there is a 50% off coupon at Joann.com and also a free shipping coupon for Joann’s so decide which you will use with care. Sorry to be such an enabler!

The kids are supposed to come down this weekend. I picked up 3 cans of formula for Mikaela at Walmart last night. Sabrina is having trouble finding it in Columbus. So I was able to get it and grabbed enough to get her through a few weeks. Miss Mikaela is getting to be such a big girl she loves her veggies and fruit. And the veggies and fruits are really helping her acid reflux.

I should have 3 or 4 packages at my house today! I ordered a new cutter that I can take to crops I hope I like it. I also picked up a pair of pants and a top for Mikaela from Old Navy while they were having their sale and it’s supposed to be delivered today; along with photos from both York and Winkflash.

I hope to get some scrapping this weekend, I want to get a layout or so ahead incase I don’t get to do anything while I’m at my mom’s this week. That way I can get them posted and stay up with my Load at Big Picture. I know you are supposed to scrap them each day but it’s a little hard to drag my scrapping stuff to my mom’s she doesn’t understand all the mess.

Well I need to clear out of here, and get busy. Take care all,

Jane
