It's Friday

Memory board we did at class Thursday nite. This is a cupboard door that we altered. Just the neatest class.
So it is Friday and I'm looking forward to a long weekend of relaxation and serious pool time.
Breakfast this am with Colleen and Beth and then to IKEA for their 50% sale. Probably will be a madhouse but we have Colleen to forge a path.
Catch up later on the events of the weekend

Anthony's Graduation Ceremony

Anthony graduated from pre-kindergarten Friday @ 5:30. This was my type of graduation short and sweet. We were done before 6 pm. Each class sang 2 songs and then got their certificates. Above Anthony didn't miss a beat. He sang the song and did all the hand movements perfect.

They had to walk over the bridge to get their certificate.

I surprised Anthony he didn't know I was coming. I got a big hug and smile. He even let me hold the flower bouquet that he had made for Jennifer.

Note the bracelet he made out of pipe cleaners.
After the little ceremony cake and juice. Good ending to a aspecial day for Anthony.

Fabulous Friday

Pics of Jan's class Wed "A get in the mood for summer" class.

It is Friday and I have the day off (again) thank you Boss. For some reason I was really really tired this week. (I know it must be my new latest craze get healthy!! I am trying to exercise every day, so despite stiff joints and sore muscles I have 90% met my goal. I know one should love workouts. I hate them with a passion.) It totally seemed like the week was never going to end. Anyway no special plans yet just the usual, haircut, clean, laundry and scrapbook.

Friday was organization Quest. I'm at the point that I need to get things in order so I know what I have and what I need. I have already started on the piles of paper and now have 80% of my patterned paper organized by manufacturer or theme. So Colleen and I decided that Friday was the day for an IKEA visit. We asked Beth to join us and off we headed to breakfast at IKEA and then shopping. Breakfast was soooo good and the temptation was great to try the huge cinnamon rolls, but we resisted. After energizing ourselves we hit the floor running literally. Colleen is like a tornado and off we went. First stop the wire basket drawers we have been looking for. Found them and three fully loaded carts later we wandered through the maze to checkout. Then to the car. Now we have 12 frames and 48 drawers to load in her Mercedes plus the 3 of us. Get the picture?? We were packed with room for Beth and Colleen in front and me squished in the back surrounded by wire baskets. If we crash I'm dead! Unloaded and on to Starbuck's to revive. Thanks Colleen for finding the spelling bee words.
Cingular was next stop and a new pink phone, then lunch then Sam's club for more spice jars. I was exhausted and hot at the end of the day, BUT I have everything now to get organized. Pics below show the results

Shelf with larger spice jars I filled with all my metal alphabets

Stacked two of the 4 drawer chests and have all my scrapping tools, adhesives, rub ons etc

Shelf with ribbons and flowers. Yes Dad and TJ shelf is crooked and not cenetered under the top one. I thought I had measured it right. Ooops guess not.
