And I ain't talkin about spiked eggnog!!!
Actually I am quite ready for some spiked eggnog!!! lol. What the heck....just leave the eggnog out :):):)
But it does sound kinda nice right about now.......especially with the day I have had! Ever notice how just one little glitch in your day can throw everything off balance? Well, that is the case today. All school year long we have had issues with Matthew's bus driver. Matt goes to an "alternative" school so his day doesn't start the same time as my other boys. And his school is much farther away too. Like wayyyy on the other side of Knoxville. It's about a 30 to 40 minute drive on the interstate depending on weather and traffic. His school day starts at 9:30 and he goes til 4:30. His bus driver is rarely here even before 9:20.......and with it being a 30 to 40 minute drive....um, he is late every freakin day!!! So while this dude always shows up late...there are days when if I am not standing right there at the door with Matt's stuff in hand and open the door as soon as I have him in my sight....he will TRY to speed by and not pick him up. Well this morning he chose to not show at all. And with Matt's Autism, every little deviation from normal routine is a huge deal. So he has been a hand full today. And the poor kid doesn't realize WHY today is so different.
And yes I have reported this guy, complained, and called everyone I could think of as well as camping out the Board of Education to talk to whoever was unlucky enough to have to deal with me that day.......bus drivers are a precious commodity here.... especially the one that do the special needs routes. So they get to do what they want I guess. VERY frustrating and with the school schedules and such I just can't transport him back and forth myself.
It's always something I guess!!
Before I get on a roll here (yeah I realize I have been rollin for about 15 minutes now.....lol) I MUST add to the designer credits of yesterdays "Snow Fun" mini album.......the album itself is from Nikki Sivils. And it didn't come pre-punched. And the chipboard is VERY high quality stuff and probably over a quarter of an inch thick even before I started adding paper to it. Well, I got it together and THOUGHT I could get thru it with my generic squeeze paper punch. HA!!! As usual....thinking was my first mistake!!
I grabbed the heavy duty one made for punching thru multiple sheets of paper......um.....works great with paper ....not so much mini albums.
Strike 2 :(
At this point I am torn between power tools and an ice pick........and my kids were very, very afraid and went and got Bob. Being a guy he has lots of cool guy gadget stuff and he popped the holes in for me with something used for putting belt holes in leather. A leather stabber I guess???? At any rate I have now stolen it and have it hid in my scrapping stash....bwahahahahahaha!!!
But he wanted credit.......so there it is!!! Bob, you rock.....and I will never ever again tease you about your guy gadgets. (until next time....lol) And this is all true.....and I really was heading downstairs to get the power drill!!!
No power tools involved in this project.......and no injuries to report either. Its been a slow day........lol.

BTW.....thank you for the get well wishes....they seem to have worked, he said he felt much better this morning but his throat was still hurting....no fever tho!
