Sorry - I've been swamped!

Really, there is no excuse for me neglecting my blog the way I have been. I guess I have just been really swamped at home and of course I was out of town this weekend at a trade show. We're also gearing up to get ready to go on vacation to Universal and Orlando. We leave Friday! :)

Lots of things have been going on. Last week, we saw the Cincinnati Cyclones win the Kelly Cup. If you're looking for pics, Barb has them on her blog. I didn't bring my camera because frankly - it sucks right now. The battery will not hold charge and I refuse to buy another one right now. I'm all about "saving" money.

I'm also obsessed with making money online. So far - since the end of April, I've made about $350 in various online efforts. Not too shabby, huh? I'm pretty happy with the results. I've referred quite a few people to it - so let me know how you're doing. I just got a check in the mail on Friday for $85 and I'm waiting for a Visa gift card right now. I've been researching most of these sites and it's all good. I'm hoping to pay off some debt with the extra cash!

I've also tinkered with the notion of quitting scrapbooking altogether. I know - what am I thinking, right? But, it just does not appeal to me whatsoever right now. I am definitely enjoying the side of the business where I am moreso than the actual hobby at this point. Maybe it's a funk and I'll snap out of it.

Sorry for the drab post. I'll try to upload some photos. Scott got his blackbelt on Friday which was great to see. He's so proud of it. I'm so proud of him! Maggie had cheer camp. This is definitely a new area for me. I'm not used to being the mom of a cheerleader. LOL!

I'll post again soon - I promise!

So glad to see the update Ginger!
I was just about to send you an email with a touch of sarcasm about the lack of an update...
Florida sounds great right now, have a super fun time! I know you will!!
Quitting scrapbooking?? Well, honestly, I have had the same thoughts. I'm tot the point where I just don't have the time. Sticking photo's in photo albums is sounding better and better all the time. I don't know that it will happen, but I am definitely simplifying my pages. I'm thinking about going through all of my stash and selling a lot at a garage sale this summer.
Did I really say that?? Wow- I'm a little surprised at myself. ; )_
Love ya girl-

laura said... quitting scrapbooking would be the saddest thing in my heart because you are so talented. and you inspire me so much. but i understand what you are saying. and i think i should do it too because it costs so much money!!!!

I am right there with you on the quitting scrapbooking altogether... I pretty much already have, lol. The desire just hasn't been there for a while now. I figure if I ever regain the desire to do it I will go digital. Cheaper and less stuff! :D Miss you!

I'm telling you, once you go digital, it's a whole different world :-) I have no desire to ever step foot in a scrapbook store again!
