Random Bits

*Last night was my first pack meeting of being the Cub Master. It went pretty good except for the fact that it rained and it was supposed to be at a park! My super sweet man stepped in and made the s'mores in the oven. Now that's a boy scout for ya, eh? Weston received his bear. Boy, he is such a stinkin' great kid. I'm having so much fun being more involved with scouts with him. And it was super cool that I got to be the one to award him his badge.

*I refinished a desk. It's now all antiqued and turquoisy. It turned out beeeee-UTE-ifully! And I love it.

*I'm trying to get the revisions done on my picture book so I can send it back to the editor and then bite all my nails down to the quick.

*I'm hoping to get my kids to do a lot of work around the house tomorrow by bribing...er...I mean....ENCOURAGING them with a Surprised Family Date planned for tomorrow night. (shhhh! Don't tell! We're going to a magic show)

*I've now lost 19 pounds. :)

*I'm wishing I was getting work done on revising my MG novel. But I'm stuck at this spot. I need to figure out how to get them through a door. But should the snarky Sea Witch trick them or should it be their idea? Sticky. Sticky.

*I need to post pictures of Sam's birthday, Ryan's birthday, our trip up north for John and Alysha's sweet baby's blessing and maybe even of my fancy dresses and swanky heels I found for the dressy dinners in New York when I went shopping with my Awesome Sister, Candace. :) Boy, that girl has excellent taste.

*I need to sew new elastic on some skirts for this sweet older lady that walks by my house.

*My kids are already worried about me being gone to New York. My 7 year old really wishes I'd just take him with me. He's such a snuggly guy. It's going to be hard to be gone.

*I'm going to go try out one of those spray on tans tomorrow. Cross your fingers for me that I don't turn orange.

*Here's a random shot of sweet goofy Zoe...
