~ i picked spencer up from school on friday; later matt came and picked up both boys ~

~ saturday we woke up to snow/sleet on the ground. i went home early from our scrappin' weekend ~

~ on sunday, we had spencer's mom come get him early. sherry took coleman for the night so we could sleep and get better~

~ i only took SEVEN pictures???? what's wrong with me? ~

coleman's party
~ i am happy to report that after purchasing new ink cartridges and higher quality paper, i am content with the shade of green that is printing. quite a relief ~

~ the scalloped punch my mom sent (via my sister) works perfectly. the problem? my sister accidentally packed it up and took it back with her. no worries. if i can't find one locally, she will mail it to me. just glad to know it will work. ~

pedometer challenge
it was not a good week at all. my pedometer was messed up on monday and tuesday (readings in the 2000s even though my day was "normal"). then saturday and sunday, i was sick and barely moved.
total = 22,023 steps (average = 4,404) ouch!
