I'm swamped.
Utterly and completely swamped.

I've been so stinking busy the past few weeks that I'm not even sure where the time has gone!

My little brother is graduating high school a week from tomorrow and we're having a big huge party for him here next weekend, so there's quite a bit that I need to do to prepare for that, in addition to the surprise scrapbook that I've been working on for him and have yet to finish. Brayden graduates Kindergarten on the 4th (*sigh* my baby is growing up .... and I don't get those child free school hours anymore all summer long). B also keeps my pretty stinking busy by playing little league baseball with 2 or 3 games a week, which Mike also coaches.

And on top of all of that I've decided that I want to re-do my dining room. Today we painted the walls a light blue and reupholstered the chairs ... well right up until I ran out of fabric, anyhow. I needed a bit of brightness in my house :) Pictures to come in a blog post later on after I actually finish the project.

And that part time job I was talking about a few days ago ... well I got it. I'll be a working woman again in about a week and a half. I'm excited because obviously that means that Mike and I can put some money into our depleted savings account and do some of the things around the house that we've been wanting to do. And at the same time I'm completely heartbroken. I've been a stay at home mom since before Gage was born. I'm quite sure that I'm going to miss seeing my little boogers 24/7.

So where does that leave me??? At (finally!) the point of this blog post. I updated my shop for the first time in .... well awhile. And for probably the last time for awhile also, aside from renewing and relisting. So if you're in the market for fresh Oh Mandie goodies, now is the time to snatch em up!

Oooh, love that owl journal!! I hear ya on the work thing. If my shop sales don't pick up soon, I'm going to have to go back to work, too. The idea of missing out on all of my kids moments (even the naughty ones) makes me so sad!!

Good luck, Amanda!!
