Tommorow Is My First Day Of School

Sorry I have been MIA for awhile, I really have no excuses except to say that it's been a very, very busy couple weeks. Last Monday was orientation for school, it was weird to actually be in the classroom...I had to pinch myself that's for sure when I was sitting at my desk. I also had to inventory all my kits for school which was pretty overwhelming, but I am so glad I got that out of the way, it will make tomorrow go much smoother I hope. But anyway, I am now the proud owner of a many scissors and clippers and everything that goes with doing hair....I just need to learn how to use it all:)

Also last week, Joni, Lisa and I headed to Columbus, OH to go to Market for Joni's store. WOW, is all I can say....we came home with a trailer FULL of goodies for the store and also had a wonderful time together, it is always exhausting going to Market but very worth it.

We stopped at many Antique shops along the way. I did snap a few pictures of some of my favorite pieces of furniture....they were so cool!!!!! But I didn't get any pictures of us....not sure why, I guess we were just too busy running our butts off most of the time.

I LOVED this little prim beauty.

This box caught my eye....so prim!!!!

I thought his was a very cleaver idea....turning an old set of steps into display shelves.

Another nice piece.

And last but not least, I loved this little hanging cabinet.

Well for now, my fun is over for a while....school will have to come first before play. That is way I was so happy that I got to go on the Columbus, OH trip with Joni and Lisa, thanks girls for the fun time...you guys are the best!!!!!!

I am hoping to be able to still work on my prims for our craft show in Spooner this November......I will be working on them at night which will be o:k as long as my homework is done. I am sure it will take a little time to learn how to juggle everything, but I am determined to make it happen because I LOVE sewing ....it's my therapy:)

This is where I will be spending MOST of my time for a while, I still can't believe I am really going to school....woohoo!!!!!! I am also starting back on my Nutrisystem tomorrow, I took at break for a couple weeks but am anxious to get back on it. I am pretty much maintaining my weight loss but want to finish and reach my goal soon. I would like to say thank you to the nice lady that came up to me in Columbus while we were at market and congratulated me on my weight loss, that was sooo cool (she must read my blog). I guess it is a small world and even smaller in blog world, I really could not believe she recognized me. Anyway, I was on the phone at the time and didn't get to talk to her but wanted her to know that I appreciated her encouragement, it means a lot to me.

Well, I better get to bed. Tomorrow is my first day of school and I am sure I will need all the rest I can get tonight. I will keep you all posted on how my first day goes....wish my luck:)

Blessings, Rhonda

Thank you Gina, I am hoping that school will not feel like school but an adventure of a life time. I might need your encouragement from time to time though to keep me thinking that way,lol. Have a blessed day, Rhonda

Best wishes to you as you start school. You'll do great!
I enjoyed seeing all the lovely prims. Are those ones you picked up or just ones you liked?
I so want the Morse St. sign as I live on Morse Rd.!!
