Playing catch up....

I just can't seem to get caught up lately!!! Well, Stamp Fest 2007 has come and gone...it was a total blast!! The cards that everyone made were fabulous! I made so many new stamping friends, and I got to meet friends that I have been chatting with for over a year on SCS (Hi Deb and Sarah!!) I can't wait til next year!!

I won't go into the details but I recently went through a really rough time. Things are getting better each day, but it really made me take a good hard look at my life and make some decisions about what was important and what I wanted out of my life. The first thing I decided is that it's time for me to stop putting off going to school to be a nurse. It's something I've always wanted, but with 3 kids there were always a million excuses why I shouldn't. Secondly, I decided that being overweight just simply isn't who I am...so I joined Weight Watchers two weeks ago. I had been watching what I ate before then, and as of today I am down 12 pounds. YAY!

Ok, enough about me. Let's get to some stampin'!!!

I just want to give you some words of encouragement on going back to school. I went back to xray school at age 30, with 2 kids, and had another while in the xray program!! If I can do it, so can you!! Good luck with school and your diet! PS - I like your cards also!
