Hi all, I am not hiding. I am really still here. Everything is ok I am just behind. Portals has been a mess since Joleen has gone into hiding. I am trying to sort things out and get the Eye Candy issues printed so I can mail them. We had to order a new part for the printer and are waiting on that, I am sorry! To those of you who have graciously offered their help in the other Portals related matter, if I have not contacted you, I will!! Special thanks to dear Tracie for already jumping in with 2 feet and her copy of Photoshop to continue on with issue #5 and to the fabulous Kim for her ideas and email full of links to help flesh the issue out.
We had a nice Easter. The weather was very cooperative and we had a delicious dinner. The kiddies had fun hunting Easter eggs and it was just plain nice to have a relaxing day to visit with family all together.
Not a whole lot new to report. I am feeling the spring cleaning urge beyond the former remains of my backyard. In the last couple weeks we have hoed, raked, cut, chopped, bagged, planted watered etc. And now we are planning the next phase but first we have to get rid of the tree we cut down on Saturday. Poor dead tree... :(
My next task is to attack the little's room. Its always hard to do the great toy purge, especially when they are around. My babe is a smart cookie and comes up with all sorts of reasons why we should keep every little thing. I may have to stealthily pack stuff up. At this moment I am still overwhelmed at attacking her room so I am allowing myself to approach it with my rule of 5.. which is to allow myself to just toss 5 things a day until I feel like I can tackle more.. or get into it enough to throw away 10 or 15 things!!! Wish me luck!
Ok, I am obviously rambling about nothing here. I promise more ArtFest stuff soon. I still am having internet issues and have been reduced to this:
yeah, 100 feet of ethernet cable to drag around with my laptop.. kind of defeats the whole purpose.. -sigh-
