Been a while....

hi! just thought i'd pop in here and say hi....just in case some family members read this and are wondering if we're ok after the storms rolled through here on sunday. we're all ok. terry was out of town, go figure. but had called earlier in the day to tell me to keep an eye on the weather channel. so i knew it was coming. it rolled through just when they said it would. the tornado sirens went off just before 5. hate that! hate bad weather...i don't think anyone really likes it....i take that back, isn't there "tornado chasers" or some darn thing....crazy. anyway, we were lucky but other parts of missouri were hit, & 3 people died.
getting ready for our company tomorrow (my in-laws). i don't have much to do around the house other than touch ups so i'm not really sure what i've been doing these past few days. started a layout yesterday but haven't finished...finally dug through the tubs of clothes. so kati has lots of new (hand-me-downs) clothes to wear for the summer. oh, and started a low carb diet! so far so good!
i do have some other exciting fun news. i'm going to phoenix in aug. !!! ok, so NOT a real treat to head to arizona in aug. (HOT) but it's hot here too...scrapbook answers is having an all girls weekend retreat (more details to come on their website soon) and several us are heading down to help out for the retreat. i'm pretty stoked! i haven't been out and about for a long time. never been to a "big" scrapbooking event. i've been some what sheltered. i'm not all that fond of the local scrapbooking store closest to me so i haven't taught a class since i lived in alaska and taught for michelle. i miss it a lot. so maybe this retreat will help me get back into teaching. i'm so looking forward to meeting some of the other designers and of course the sba team (editors). BUT i have to say thanks to my hubby for letting me go and staying home with the girls. it just so happen to have all worked out....
have a great day....better get back at it!

The retreat sounds like it will be a lot of fun, glad it works out for you to go! You should be teaching classes, you are so good at it! I know Tami and Amber really enjoyed the class we set up at my place. Sounds like Sunday was an interesting night with the weather. I'm with you, I hate those kind of storms, I'll take a good old snow storm over tornados. Chat with you soon!
