Busy, Busy Butterfly

I have been busy getting the children ready for back-to-school. This is the first year that all three will be attending. Zachary is starting the 3-year-old pre-school program two mornings a week, Sophia is in Kindergarten four afternoons per week and Adrianna is in first grade all day. I intend to change my address to: Me, On The Road, All Over Town, NH. Just look for the zippy green mini-van. I'll be the one trying to outrun the police, LOL! Totally kidding!!

I had another run in with the electricity last night as I was putting the finishing touches on this card:

Lindsey was having a card contest at her blog Embellished and I think it ended last night at midnight...Well as I was getting ready to snap pictures to email to Lindsey the lights went out. As you may have read about a month ago I was up in the attic in my stamp room and the lights went out. It is black as a cave on a moonless night up there when the lights go out. I could not find my flashlight in the dark (I now must invest in a tool belt so that I can wear the darn flashlight!) Anyway I sat up there still as stone having a major anxiety attack. I was afraid to make a sound, so I sat there silent until I heard Ed come up to the bedroom. He flashed the flashlight on the bed and saw I wasn't in it and realized I was up in the the dark...alone! I finally found my voice and called out to him. He said this morning he will never forget the look on my face for as long as he lives. I was shaking from head to toe apparently, as well.

So, this card is going to serve as a reminder to me for several things:
1. keep the flashlight within reach.
2. never wait until the last minute to take pictures for a contest submission
3. get some big girl panties...seriously, what was going to happen to me in the attic of my own house??? sheesh, I'm a ninny!
