Already the week is on its way. I love that. We sail quickly toward the weekend.
It's been a long day today. We were up and out early. In fact... it was still dark when we arrived at the office. Dana had to go to an Applause Breakfast for the Board. As Trustee, he needs to attend all Board functions like this. My little baby looks so grown up in his suit, with the school crest on his tie and jacket, and the Board pin firmly in place on his lapel. My baby. We drop him off at these functions, and his principal brings him to school afterwards. He heads in confidently, and we marvel. We would be nervous during some of these functions, but he doesn't appear to get nervous at all. This layout is in keeping with the times. With Halloween mere days away, I made this layout of October '97. My baby, when he was actually a baby to everyone else. He was Batman. The strange ghoul beside him? That would be his faithful Mommy... aka... Me! What can I say? My son likes his Mommy and Daddy to play too.

And it's fun! SO much inspiration. I'm a happy gal. This place is called A Million Memories
so check it out, if you are looking for fun girls, with scads of talent. (And nope... I'm not on the team, and have yet to get to know them super well... so I have nothing to gain by recommending them).
We had a crop over there... and I did a couple of layouts and stuff. I will share them with you when I've finished. I prefer the scanner at the office. The one on my home desk, just doesn't cut it as well. I love challenges. What's not to love? Someone else thinks up the premise.. and you play. I did up some boring stuff... but some of those girls used the same instructions as I did... and came up with some crazy talented crapola. Crapola probably isn't the best choice of words when you're talking about something good, eh? hmmmm
It's Sunday... and it's back to work tomorrow. How come weekends go at the speed of light.. but the week lasts a lifetime?
I'll post more later.

A Pact of Positivity
So Good To Me?
Ok.. so Monday isn't necessarily good to me. It's a day where everyone gets re-stressed for the week, and it means back to school for my son... and back to work for hubby and me. It means the stresses of life pile back on, and you must head on out into the ugliness, an leave the sanctity of your own home. The safe bosom of your family. Etc.
Um.. yeah. Ok.. well the PURPOSE of this is to be positive.. and I lost that somewhere in the middle of this post. But yeah... I've decided to restructure myself. Redefine my level of postivity. I am giving up negativity. It's not about breaking my habit of being negative nellie. It's about creating the NEW habit of positive. That's what I'm deciding on. It won't be easy. I've been negative nellie my entire life. As a writer and poet, I EXCEL when I am depressed. I am ... dare I say it... almost brilliant with my prose, when I am at my low ebb. So.. I'm chancing the loss of what I hold dear... flickers of brilliance... at least in my own mind... for the sake of being positive. Is it worth it? We shall see. This is the experiment. This is the not-so-scientific-experiment-of-life-changing-positivity.
This is interesting. At the very least... somewhat fun.
And who knows what else.
Care to join me? Care to see what life brings to us? Care to make a pact of positivity?
Come on! What do you have to lose? If *they* are right, and we really DO create our good fortune... don't you want a part of it?
