*Home Again*

Happy 4th of July to my American readers.... I hope you enjoy your long weekend!

Milo and I made the trek home yesterday after 20 days in Regina with Mom.  The first part of the drive seemed to take forever (like I was shocked that we had only been in the car an hour type thing), but at about the half way point things just sped along.  We only stopped for two pee/gas breaks as I wasn't at all hungry while on the road.

We arrived home to an empty but clean house... a plus and a minus.  I had really been looking forward to a night on my own in the the house (the guys are camping this weekend) but I will admit to being disappointed to find an empty house.  It was both good and bad.  Bruce and the boyz treated me to a clean house as well... they did some tidying and cleaning, ran the dishwasher... even washed the sheets so I got to enjoy "clean sheet day" on the king size bed all to myself.  I love clean sheet day!

I'm watching a movie this morning ("It's Complicated") and plan on running a few errands when it's done, before the family gets home.

I hope to spend some time in my craft space in the next few days.  The first thing I want to do is reorganize my Stampin' Up! ink pads and all of my 8 1/2 X 11 cardstock... I have decided to not keep my SU paper separate from my other stuff and with the big reorganization of colours in the SU world I think I will sort everything by colour instead of colour family.  I hope it works for me! LOL!!

Wow, I'm the Queen of Babble today....
