Quote of the Day...

Personally, I didn’t get it. But then, I was just proud I could distinguish between the symbols for Toyota, Ford, and Chevy. This car was glossy black, sleek, and pretty, but it was still just a car to me.

Life Happens!

Well, I was planning on listing some items for Etsy on Wed. night after we got back from the apartments that my husband and I manage, but he decided to have a fight with the lawn mower, so we went to the ER instead. (The lawn mower WON!) He's lucky - he gets to keep his fingers, as long as they heal OK.

But this got me thinking about life and the impossible situations that happen on a daily basis! How do you cope with the ER visits, notes from school that the kids don't give you until too late, the dog that will not be potty trained, or the constant stack of dishes in the sink and clothes in the hamper?

I am a fairly organized person and love to admit that I can schedule my family for anything and make it work, but it seems these days that all I want to do is make it stop! I just want to throw the clothes out and buy new (But I don't make THAT much on Etsy!) and start using paper plates every night. But this wouldn't be right!

So what is your trick for keeping the balance just right for your household? Tell me - I need some help right now!! :-)

Take care all! Megan

Quote of the Day...

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

What a busy time its been!

We have been busy, busy, busy at my house here lately! Besides colds, flu bugs, sick dogs, backyard remodeling nightmares, and windy soccer games, there's not much to discuss this evening!

I should be listing some great new items on my etsy site here soon, including an adorable board book made with a recycled board book. It makes me feel good to re-purpose something and have been leaning that way lately in my creations! I can't wait for you all to see them!

Keep reading for a new Tip of the Week coming soon also! Thanks! Megan :-)
