Stormy Weather

Stormy weather on a Saturday morning makes it really easy to sleep in and be a bum. A four year old who wants to “cuddle” AKA wiggle makes it hard. It was worth it though. I got about five minutes of quality snuggling time before he started wiggling.

It’s probably a good thing that I’m awake. I have a to-do list a mile and a half long today. I’m hoping to cram some scrapbooking in there somewhere. As long as we don’t lose power from Tropical Storm Lee. It’s hard to scrapbook in the dark! It’s forecast to go right over us. We’re on our third day of rain.

I did manage to get one scrapbook page done late last night when I was up coughing my head off. If you zoom in you can see the storm track and photos of the feeder bands. Yikes!

I’d better go get some more stuff done around here like washing clothes and dishes in case we lose power. I did go to the doctor yesterday and get my antibiotics like a good girl so I’m hoping this sinus infection clears up soon. (Yesterday would be good!) I’m not the most patient person in the world.

Wood Grain Thank you

Such a cute layout! I love how you added the text around it like a border. I also like how you added a small photo from various pages to remember what happened! I've always had the problem of only scrapping special occasions or events and then forgetting everyday life! Recently, I've started a few projects to take care of that :)

I hope everything goes good for you during the storm!! We just went through hurricane Irene and waiting for it to hit is just a pain!! [Luckily, nothing happened except heavy rain at my house]

Love the layout! My daughter was spending the weekend in New Orleans, but I scared her into going back to Baton Rouge so she wouldn't get stuck! Good luck!

What is it with munchkins? Why wont they hold still and just "rest" with us for an hour or so? LOL, right.

Ah nothing beats a snuggle in stormy weather! Love your layout, especially your gem of an idea to add the storm track pictures!

Heather, it's been so long since I have left comments at your blog - I am very sorry about being MIA! I love this page - the boyfriend line is one of my favs, and you used it perfectly here!!!!! You are doing a great job with this project! We are having rain, rain, and more rain today, making for a gloomy Labor Day!!!! Nice day to get stuff done in the house, though!
