Wow! Didn't take me long...

I made it, what, five days before falling off the daily gratitude wagon?  LOL. 

Actually, I had a crazy busy weekend with kid activities and then ended up getting sick (again?? really??!!) come Monday.  So I guess I have 5 days worth of gratitude to share now, huh?

OK, here goes, in no particular order...

I am grateful for people who actually like their job and are good at it.  I know that sounds like kinda a weird thing to be grateful for but I've had my share of less-than-perfect kids' birthday parties.  But this past Saturday, for The Girl's 5th birthday party, we went to a local bouncy place and our host "Bear Cat" (I never did get his proper name...I'm assuming it really wasn't Bear Cat) made this the best party ever.  He was loud.  He was crazy.  He engaged and played with the kids.  He was cool with the adults, too.  He generally ROCKED.  Thank you, Bear Cat!

I am grateful for being part of an awesome magazine and forum (Scrapbook News and Review) where I have learned TONS (and learned that I have barely scratched the surface as far as what I know about paper crafting products and techniques).  Seriously, check out the forum.  DAILY you'll find new ideas and techniques and videos.  And people actually participate on the forum so you get lots of info and points of view. 

I am grateful for Puffs Plus tissues.  I don't know how people (my hubby, lol) use the non-lotion kind.  Trust me, I've become quite close with these over the last few days.  Ahhhhh...

I am grateful for my son's piano teacher.  She's also the mom of one of his besties so once the lesson is over, the boys get to play for a while before I pick him up.  She's so awesome.  She makes the lessons fun for him and I think she brings out the best in him. 

I am grateful I learned how to "properly" type back in junior high, I think?  Otherwise it'd take me eons to write all these ridiculously long posts, LOL!  My son's been learning how to type in his computer labs.  I'm not sure if they're really learning how to properly type but if they are, that's awesome!  And in first grade!!!  It's amazing how much they do on the computers already and it'll be great for him to learn now before getting into any bad habits. 

OK, I think that catches me up. 

I know I promised to share the tutorial for the Precocious Paper Fall Flower Tree this past weekend.  I'll shoot for Friday, sound good?
