A month of Gratitude continued...

Last night I was thankful that we have vision insurance. Because of my prescription, my lenses are very expensive. My husband jokes that my glasses are stronger than most telescope lenses. Well, my lenses cost over 500 before my insurance. yep, I am blind.

Today I am home sick. I woke up at 4am sick. I have lost my voice. I am thankful that my student teacher & co-teacher took care of my kiddos! Even though I am still sick, I know I won't be able to get a sub for tomorrow. So I will be there, whether I can talk or not. Hopefully, I will feel a bit better. We are having potato soup for dinner which I plan on taking the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Many people will enjoy my lack of voice!!!

A month of Gratitude

I am really enjoying my month of gratitude. Today I thought about how grateful I was for the rain even while I was soaked to the skin. Today on my way to work, a rainstorm came through. I thought that my car might float away - Marbach Rd. was a river. The construction has made the drainage problem even worse.

Trying to figure out how to cover my album. I bought Ali Edward's December Daily kit from studio calico. I also ordered the November monthly kit from I highly recommend both kits but if you can only afford one - treasure box club is an incredible value.

Holiday Thoughts

I am creating a gratitude journal and the basic album for my Christmas Journal. I really enjoy following Shimelle's Journal My Christmas each year. I love the evolution of the prompts. It is really inspiring. When you purchase the class once, you are enrolled forever! I have been doing this for several years. Want to know more? check out for the posts! This is my 5th year.

This is the 10th year that I will be celebrating Christmas without my mom. She died 12/21/01 from complications of a sudden illness. No matter how old you are, you miss your mom.

This is my second Christmas with my grandson, Robby. He will be 21 months on Christmas day. He is such a loving child. We are blessed.
He is just a sweetie! I am enjoying being a granny!

I am off to work on my basic album pages, hope to post them soon!
