December Daily 2010 : 03

Left Page : Peanut says, “Relax mama.”

Right Page : The journaling can be found underneath the photo on the right.

The bottom of the photo folds up to reveal the journaling.

I attached a piece of pattern paper and tag to the back of the photo.  The pattern paper was a bit longer than the photo so that I could fold it over to attach the lined patterned paper that contained the text.

JOURNALING: Today was a mellow work day.  The kids behaved themselves and I was able to get some grading done while they worked on stuff.  I also got to sit occasionally and put my feet up.  I am beginning to see spider veins on my legs and they are freaking me out!  My current mantra: Relax.  Relax.  Put your feet up.  Relax.

A package from A Muse Arts Stamps arrived in the mail with a dozen Copic markers I ordered last week (along with a few stamps).  They were 30% off so I had to get myself an early Christmas gift.

The day got crazy when darkness came and I hadn’t run my errands.  I had Gu and PayDays to pick up, plus finalize the details of Julie’s Cheering Team.  (She’s running a marathon on Sunday!)  By the way, PayDays are really hard to find!  I was exhausted by nightfall.  I did remember to relax, put my feet up and take some time to count Peanut’s kicks.  (My doctor wants me to record his movements daily.)

I’ll share Day 04 and 05 tomorrow.  I was out all day cheering on my friend, Jewels, who successfully completed her first marathon and now, I’m exhausted.  I also have about 65 papers to grade by Monday morning.
