shopping spree

I had a cool thing happen to me recently--I won a $20 gift certificate to the scrapbooking store I shop at, Keepsake Trends. I visit their website daily and enter different weekly and monthly challenges for entries into a drawing at the end of the month. I won it in September--not for my talent or for 'beating out' the competition, my name just got drawn, but it's still cool!

Tonight I went into the store and went straight to my purchase; a set of alphabet stamps I'd been eyeing for about a month. It was so cool to pick it up and drop the $20 cert and not feel the pain of spending so much on one item, LOL! I'm looking forward to using it. =)

The kids were back in school today after their week of Fall Break and that was sooooo nice! I love having everyone on a schedule. Of course I have my daycare children back, my full timer little darling that has been coming to me for over a year and a half and a return little guy who I had FT from Nov-May, then Mom took the summer off to work at home. He's now back FT again. So we stay busy, but it's organized business. Just the way I like it!

I'm watching "Click" right now...anyone seen it? I'll let you know what I think.

Click wasn't as good as I thought it would be, hope you enjoyed it more than I did.

Hi Amie,
Glad you made the switch and are happy with it. Congrats on your win and purchase.
I saw Click at the drive in, so I missed some of it. It was okay, not what I expected.
