Pffft…. Ant Farm, Schmant Farm!!

After another busy week, I’m back for a quick blog.

I can tell you know that next time I spend ages setting up an ant farm, I am going to keep it secret and up high. I don’t know what killed the ants…. there were SO many factors to choose from!! The four year old who kept feeding them… same four year old who kept adding water… the two year old who kept shaking the box… the five year old who kept trying to save them (vigorously)…. who knows? Point is, they are dead…. and less than a week after moving them to their new home. I wonder if there is an Anty Heaven?

In good news, the guitar is going well. I have given myself three short lessons this week and can already play a few little songs, including Happy Birthday, which I worked out from ear. Thank goodness I can read music, too, though. It would be really hard learning it all from scratch. The kids love the guitar and bring it to me to play (badly – lol).

I plan to scrap tonight. I haven’t scrapped for a week and am missing it. I am worried my Mojo will be gone. Luckily I am starting with a sketch for Scrapbook City – that makes it easier!

Big HAPPY 70th BIRTHDAY to my MIL, too!! We are having a party for her tomorrow. She is one of the coolest 70 year olds I know. It should be a fun afternoon.

Have a great weekend.
xx S.
