I'm so exhausted.

Seriously, its not even 9PM on a Saturday night and I'm debating on going to bed. It has been an absolutely CHAOTIC week. My child, who will turn 22 months on Monday, has decided to really get into the throes of the terrible twos. With complete concentration and clarity. I never thought I'd see so much food be thrown at the same time from two little hands. Or the look of evil that comes across a toddler's face right before he head-butts you.

On top of that, he suddenly spiked a fever of 104 degrees on Thursday, for no freakin' reason. He was fine Wednesday. Sick all day Thursday, fever Friday morning and then fine by the afternoon. Weird! A quick trip to the pediatrician found a sore throat to be the culprit. Poor kid. He just laid on the floor. He was so pitiful.

Needless to say, I'm exhausted. On top of all this, I made waaaaaay too many appointments and plans this weekend to be working on virtually no sleep whatsoever. I had a MOPS (Moms of Preschoolers) retreat last night where we discussed what vision we had for our MOPS group, and really have some great ideas for our new year. This morning I met with two Stampin' Up demonstrators to see all the goodies that one of them brought back from the recent Convention. This afternoon I went and got my hair cut and colored. Tomorrow its cleaning day. Monday I have to meet with some people from the Air Force Base (I'm a "key spouse" for the Air Force, meaning I'm the contact person for spouses, a liaison for them to get in touch with the command if needed). Then Tuesday my son and I are flying to visit family for a week. Eeeek!!

I haven't done any scrapping this week, or any crafting at all. The closest I got to crafting was cleaning out my craft room and reorganizing all of my crap. Yep, I call it all "crap". :) Oh, I did do one crafty thing. I made a "no sew french memo board". I'll take a pic and post it at one point or another.

That being said, here's what I've done in the past few weeks that I forgot to post. :)

Template Challenge at MLAS. Kit was an MLAS Designer Collab called "And Many More." Lots of cutesy birthday elements.

Speed scrap at MLAS. Using a kit called Fresh & Wet by Rucola Designs.

Speed Scrap at MLAS. Using a kit called "Love Checker" by Rucola Designs.

Since I'm on vacation for the next week-ish, I won't be posting. I won't be bringing my laptop, I just don't feel like dealing with carrying it onto the plane. Its bad enough I'll have my son in my lap (hello!! Gotta take advantage of him flying free until the last freakin' minute!), so I doubt I'll want to deal with expensive breakable electronics in my carry-on. :)

Hope everyone has a great week!
