So, yesterday of course I raved about my husband and I still think he's amazing, but yesterday when I was making breakfast for a bunch of ungrateful kids I was thinking "He tricked me!"

See we have this neighbor. She's doing the single working mom thing because she and her husband were not assigned together (she's here in Poland and he's in Portugal - honestly I think it was a paperwork mistake...the pull down menu, the proximity of the two countries in the alphabet:). Her daughters are both teenagers and she gets up every morning to make them breakfast. So for the umpteenth time that I was serving my kids' cold cereal for breakfast, my husband says, "You know, A. ALWAYS makes her kids a hot breakfast." To which I replied, "Yes, but A. doesn't have 4 kids between the ages of 1 and 13." (which is pretty much always my response to anything that I'm not doing right. "You didn't get the grocery store." "I have 4 kids." "You didn't put gas in the car." "I have 4 kids." and so on;).

So as I was making french toast yesterday and I had one boy SCREAMING, I mean SCREAMING at the top of his lungs that he didn't want French toast and that I couldn't make him eat it, I was thinking about how my husband guilted me into cooking for these kids who really only want cold cereal.

(After I put the French toast in front of him, he did eat it and actually asked for more. Seth is not a morning person.)

Only one more day of LOAD! I can get back to folding and putting away laundry. Anyway, here's the LOAD layout for yesterday:
It's Polish and if you read the journaling it may make sense (the journaling isn't in Polish just the title). Behind me in the photo of me scrapping, that's my new paper rack! And I did get a second one!

Have a scraptastic day!

  1. do have a great husband! I'm responding to your message about the fiskar texturing plates. My layout on my blog dated Jan. 26th shows a layout that I used the plates on, the gray mat. They work ok if you go over the embossed part with ink to make it show up, make small circles with the tool and you have to use some pressure. Overall, it was worth buying and I think I will use them. Thanks for checking out my blog!


Comments are much appreciated! I love to hear the nice and clever things you have to say.
