Today's Update

Yes it's been a week since my last post. That is mainly due to the fact that I've come down with some gunk that started on Saturday and just progressively got worse. I finally went to the dr. yesterday and I have a sinus infection, ear infection, and most likely bronchitis. I am feeling better today, however the coughing seems out of control and I have zip, zero, zilch of a voice.

Before all that fun started we took a trip to the zoo on Saturday morning. I have to say I was a tad disappointed. They have it set up so it's similar to the animals natural habitat, which in most cases means big huge jungle like areas and the animals were never nearby. They were all way on the other side of the "field" and you almost need binoculars to see them. For an almost 2 year old, that just doesn't get it. We needed up close and personal. She was more interested in watching the other kids than the animals. It was also ninety blazing two degrees and had me silently screaming "who's idea was this anyway" before we were halfway through the park. Oh yeah, it was mine.
Anyway, here's a couple of pics from that.





School has continued at the Nook. I've been worried about missing class since I've been under the weather the past 3 or 4 days. But I got some scrap time in this afternoon while the girls were asleep. So here's the latest of those.

History 101 - Scrap something from your history at least 20 years old.
This pic is my great grandparents in 1966.

Science/Chemistry - Do a page about the chemistry you have with another person and journal about what brought you together and what they mean to you.

And then a couple of elective courses.
Dance 102 - We had to "dance" with our layout and put it together at an angle other than it facing you up and down. The journaling on this one says, "your sweet cry is music to my ears. Sing baby girl. Sing."

Family and Consumer Science - A layout about your career.

That get's us caught up. Happy Wednesday!

I hope that you are feeling better, seems like everyone is getting the sinus stuff. Yeah we had about the same experience at the zoo. All the animals are usually sleeping. Love your pages!

Sorry to hear you've been feeling bad. I don't know if you know it or not but I remember your grandparents. Mostly Ms. Julie. She was the sweetest woman. I loved her dearly. 9 years!!!??? Wow!! I had no idea it had been that long. You're making me feel very old. :-)

Want to come over and practice some family shots at our house? I have some ideas in mind. Let me know and we can discuss.

You can scrap like that while you're sick? I'm impressed. I LOVE the sahm layout, by the way, it's gorgeous! Dunno why that one jumped out at me, but it did. Hope you're feeling better soon!
