Template and more

**Warning, Grab a drink and a snack, It's a long one!
Sorry all, I didn't make it back like I said I would. I actually fell asleep watching a movie with the younger two. As it turned out it was a good thing I did go to sleep early. It has been go, go ,go all day long. Other then meal times this is the first chance I have had to finally just sit and turn the TV on.

The boy had a basketball game at 9 am. They lost 28- 8 but the boys had fun and that's what matters. After the game I dropped all the kids at great grandpa's. They shoveled his driveway, Watched a movie and had lunch with him. I on the other hand came home, knocked down a few cobwebs, moved the TV and meet my boyfriend for lunch.

After I picked the girls up I was not satisfied with the furniture arrangement in the living room so I moved everything around, again! They always say "third times a charm", and well, I love it this time! After I finished with that I tackled all the wall pictures shelves ect. Everything came down and got cleaned. I then dug out my box's, yes box's, of extra home decor items. I have enough pictures, shelves and other items to decorate two family homes. Every couple of years or so I dig everything out and mix it up. I have three basic sets and an abundance of fill items.

The first design revolves around the wilderness and is focused on wolves. Design 2 is the sea and lighthouses. Number three, which is what is coming down, is the country. This one is based on old barns. The wolves are what I have decided to put up and display this time.

We have also decided to put up the tree this Wednesday. Yep Wednesday. A little bit early for us but the kids all have different things going on and the only days we will all be together to do it is Wednesday or Thanksgiving Day.

I have also been working like mad to get Christmas presents made. I have 4 brag books to do and 9 hybrid projects. I have roughly half of two of the brag books finished. We are having my family over for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. So I have all the baking and cooking to do, shopping, decorating, and pack for our trip. Busy Busy me. Oh well I seem to thrive when I have a load of stuff to do. I have a hard time sitting still. I actually have to watch a movie half a dozen times before I actually see the whole thing.

See I told you this was a long one! I'm still in go, go, go, mode and it's almost 1 am!

I guess my advice to slow down fell on deaf ears! I don't know how you do it.

Thanks for the nice assortment of buttons.

Thank you for the templates and buttons! Sounds like you've been beyond busy the last few days. You and your furniture sound like me! Dh hates it when I get bored, because everyroom in our apartment that has furniture ends up getting rearranged. Have fun with your tree decorating, not sure when I'm going to get brave enough to put mine up, with Nathan walking already, nothing is safe. Have a good rest of your day!!
