Feeling Guilty




Happy Monday again...Boy I am feeling so guilty :(..I just can't seem to make time for my blog!! The weather is remarkably beautiful here. With me being layed up for the last 14 months and not being able to enjoy the outdoors and my yard....now that I am stronger than ever I can't seem to get enough of the things that I have been missing ....So I am outside cleaning out the flower beds, mowing, raking and watering. And knowing that it was going to be so warm out this weekend I had to shine up the bikes... We went for a wonderful ride on Saturday!! I was a bit nervous but it was all good. My knee held up and I just enjoyed the day .:).. I am not finished with excuses,,,:) I have also been studying very hard. It has been along time since I have hit the books so the first obsticle I had was trying to stay awake lol...This stuff is BOR-ING!!! I have decided to go back to work and with being home for 20 years and not having a grade 12 my resume looks pretty shabby so I am going to write my GED exam in June and then take a business course in Septmeber!! And one more thing to top it all off I am smack dab in the middle of dance festival season!! So in a nut shell these are the reasons why the blog and me leaving everybody some sugar is lacking !!!:(..
Now before we move onto this weeks challenge over at Totally Stampalicious I'd just like to remind everyone about the AWESOME Blog Hop we'll be having to launch the release of the newline of Bugaboo Stamps!!
