Gettin' Outta Town

We are a few short hours from leaving for our basketball tournament in Rochester. I am so excited to be leaving here. I need a break, even if it is just a short hour from our home and all I will be doing is watching basketball! We found out yesterday that Doug didn't get the big job in CA. I'm so upset we got turned down again. It's hard to stay positive when that's all that seems to be happening. I just need to get away and hopefully not think about things too much. I'll just focus on Youngest Son and his basketball games.

You'd think we were going away for an entire year with all the stuff we're bringing! Food, gift bags for the boys, door decorations, suitcases, Gatorade, snacks, camera gear, etc. I am hoping to stop at the Hobby Lobby in Rochester this afternoon as we get into town. I can't wait! I know, small things excite me:). My big plan is to buy some Copics to see what all the fuss is about. I already stamped some images to bring along so I can practice while I'm sitting around bored all weekend, or while I'm laying in bed each night fighting off exhaustion. I hope they have them at this store! Otherwise, I'll be so sad!

Well, that's all. I just wanted you to know why I wouldn't be posting all weekend.

Hugs to you all,


  1. My goodness, God is certainly stretching you this year, Isn't He?! That obviously wasn't the place your husband needed to be. It's sure hard to wait, though! Hope they have the Copics at the Hobby Lobby there. Don't forget to take along some 40% off coupons. Ours has them 30% off on special from time to time. I'm slowly, but surely, building a collection but with as many as there are it will be a LONG while until I have very many. Hope the tournament isn't too exhausting - I've been there, done that! LOL!!!

  2. Wishing you a fun & safe weekend, Amy! As always, you are in my thoughts and prayers!
