Currently and Mother's Day is JUST around the CORNER...

Friday, April 5, 2013
Oh...currently how do you always get here so fast each month?!?!?!  I'm really trying to make time stand still since the end of the year is quickly approaching and this mama doesn't want her baby boy moving on from her elementary school to middle school.  Eeek!!!
Be sure to hook up with Farley { here } to join in the fun.
So don't hate me but yes I have really been off for 2 whole was awesome!!!  But back to reality so we are all gearing up in the house to go back.  { Hubby teaches too } but only had one week off. 
Well today my van is time to put it in the van graveyard and say our goodbye's.  We bought it when Josh was born and he's now 11.  It had almost 120,000 miles on it and started making really strange noises.  The best was yesterday when I seriously saw a guy do a double take when I pulled up at the light and gave me my car ~ well I don't really know who a very dirty hey lady take care of this piece of cra#.  Seriously you are driving this right now down the road in public?  Well that's how I felt...
Going down my cul-de-sac I seriously tried to just coast in cuz when I put on the brakes the car doesn't make a noise.  Yeah, I looked like a real dork doing that cuz our cul de sac is really long-- just sayin'.
So - there you have it we are getting a new car tomorrow.  For some reason things like this don't get me excited at all.  They make me nervous and kinda stress me out and I'm actually a very easy going person.  I don't care for big purchases unless someone else is paying for them. LOL 
That voice in the back of your mind saying - what if I lose my tenure unexpectedly and so does my hubby and we are on the street.  Like that is logical - but still my brain goes there for some reason.
Anywho - I will post pictures....  It will be a Ford - Uncle Pryce can really hook us up with an amazing deal at the Ford dealership so maybe a Flex or an Explorer.  I know, I know the FLEX is a rectangle on wheels and you either love it or hate it but for some reason I'm in the love it camp for that one-- go figure! 
Gosh, I was kinda long winded today --- wish us luck my friends...
OH YEAH - just when I was going to click PUBLISH I noticed the title of my post...DUH!  Mother's Day is coming and I made a little somthin' somethin' that I kinda like and wanted to share.  I thought of it about 4 months ago and just got to it this week.  It's a mother's day compact with a little mirror ( aluminum foil or shiny wrapping paper ) on top.  It actually really looks like a compact and it's a little card/craftivity thingy.  Tell me what you think...


  1. OMG! I love your mother's day craftivity! The new car thing isn't fun. My car just died and we are down to one car between the two of us-not a good situation...haha
