Today I went to the Y. Yes, after taking about a month (or more) off from exercising, I am hoping to make this a habit again. I think it works best to schedule exercising. If you just try to exercise when you get a minute or two or three, you never really work it into your day – at least, I don’t! Something better always presents itself. So, I took a couple of classes – fitness and stretch which I really enjoy. At the end of the stretch class, we have a 5 minute meditation session. So my meditation consisted of thinking about my family – my uncommunicative son, my moody husband, and my daughter’s possibilities of getting deployed. When I finished and went out to my car, I had a missed call and voice message from my daughter. If I’d checked further, I would have noticed that not only did I have 1 missed call from Ashley, but I had 6 missed calls from her. So guess what she was calling to tell me??? Yep, she may be getting deployed in the next 2-3 weeks. The good part is it would be a 6-month deployment to HAITI! That would be so much better than Iraq or Afghanistan!! Plus, as an Infectious Disease Pediatrician, she would be doing what she was trained for. She wants this so bad. I hope it happens for her although I would miss her terribly. But six months in Haiti is so much better than a year or more in Afghanistan. Her boss is submitting her name to who ever is putting together the team. She hope to find out in a few days.
Here are a couple more of the Northwoods cards I will be doing in my class. My card is on top and the one underneath is from the Northwoods Stamp Board.

I will be teaching a class next weekend at my local stamp store. It is based on a Northwoods Stamp Board. I have modified the cards so that I can use some of the Northwoods stamps and also some of the stamps that I already have (to cut costs!). The cards are Valentines, but I tried to leave out a lot of the Valentine sentiments so that you could use the cards for other occasions. Here are a couple of the cards along with the Northwood cards from the board. What do you think? If you would be interested in taking this class, let me know or Brenda at Stampers Alley in Mooresville.

I’m teaching the final “shape” class on Saturday at Stamper’s Alley so I’ve been getting ready today – cutting my paper, etc. I always wait until the last day or two it seems like. Although this time, I had gotten prepared a little early but didn’t get enough kits together. Which is a good thing – more people signed up yesterday so that makes me happy! This time we are doing a clothes theme – bikini, kimono, girlie dress and little boy’s overalls. I like this one best of all!
A good thing happened today too! I have been looking for my Oval Nestabilities for about a week. I figured they were in my craft room somewhere but I was starting to panic! I’ve been losing sleep over this, friends! I went to Stampers Alley today and asked if maybe I’d left them there & Brenda Mott said she hadn’t seen them, but she remembered me bringing them in a couple of weeks ago to measure for my September class. Well, then I figured they had to be in my car somewhere. After searching my car …. twice …. no luck! I was getting scared I had lost them for good. After dinner, I came upstairs and was just staring at my shelves when …. voila, there they were!! They were stuck in with my H20’s. I’m sure what I did was pick them up with my H20’s last week & put them all on the shelf together. Well, now they are in their rightful place and I can get a good night’s sleep!!
Tonight is my daughter’s last night in her condo. The packers came today and packed all her stuff. They will bring the moving van tomorrow and load her stuff up. She is spending the next 2 nights with one of her girlfriends and will be arriving here on Sunday. Her condo is still for sale. She has been getting a lot of “lookers” so hopefully, one of them will make an offer SOON! We will probably leave here on Tuesday to start our trek to Texas. Our plans are to stop at a beach along the way (possibly Ft Walton or Destin), New Orleans, Houston and then San Antonio. I’m really looking forward to it. Ashley and I have such a good relationship and these trips are so much fun for both of us.
