Guess what...

Guess what this Scrapper of the Year Finalist just finished doing? Disenfecting a toilet and then folding laundry- just in case you are out there just dying to know how I'm doing these last hours before the big announcement. Basically it's me- doing the usual stuff, and being the usual me.
Today...dropped kids off at school, checked emails, tried on clothes and packed suitcase for trip, had my morning coffee, did some laundry (including washing a blanket that Ava ate a hard-boiled egg on...nice.), made lunch, took Wyndham to therapy, did some more prep for trip, picked kids up from therapy/school, got a few groceries, snacktime, dinnertime, bathtime, bedtime...
I love routine sometimes, but boy, am I excited for a change of scenery and all the fun that waits just around the corner. Don't wish me luck. It's Grandma Karen that needs those wishes. She is here and acting as my 'replacement' while I'm away. I owe her one. And Rachael two. =)
You know I will blog as much and as often as I can while I'm away. I'm sure it will be big! No matter what happens. By the way, thanks everyone for saying stuff about CK saving the best for last. I'm not so sure- I think my material is just that quirky that they didn't know what to do with it, so they held out for as long as possible. We are all about to find out!

Jody, it's nice to be humble but I also think that we shouldn't doubt ourselves as much as we do - so stop it! If you weren't so amazing, you wouldn't have such a huge following on here!

Have a fantastic trip, and enjoy the time for YOU! Win or lose, you know we'd still vote Nitty.Gritty for President!

I just looked at all the profiles, and since I'm at work, I skipped the essays and went straight to the pages. Honestly Jody, your entry was the most creative page I've ever seen! It made me think of what a scrapbook is to me: scraps and pieces to make memories with and that is what your page had. I loved it! I wish you gave lessons...then again, Seattle to Michigan is quite far for scrapping classes!!!!
