As an ex cheerleading coach, those that take it seriously make it a sport. My girls worked as hard as the football players. What a commitment, too, on your behalf, Amy, to drive 2 hours and spend the day. I hope u took a good book or portable scarpbook projects. Regardless welcome to a daughter in jr high and that culture.

Count me in Connie for a virtual trip to CEC ony if it has a ball pit. Remember those? They were so much fun despite those stories. Good call to go on a Monday. Weekend at a CEC equals headache. Hope u take and scrap lots of pictures.

Challenge anyone? I was thinking a challenge/slash/swap/slas h/bet all in one type of challenge. I don't want to give to many details now because I don't want want to give anyone a head start. I just wanna see who'd be interested. It's meant to motivation you to get pages scrapped. It would be a challenge against yourself yet we'd have a final winner here. I was thinking as a bet/slash/swap those players that lose would place in an envelope one small scrap item and send it to the winner. Again just seeing who wants to play and if after I give the details you don't want to u can back out of course.

Stacey, that sounds like fun! I'm in!

Good luck at Chuck E Cheese! That place can be a nightmare! We haven't been in a couple of years. We get in there, but I always have the hardest time getting OUT! It's a conspiracy, I tell ya! LOL!!

I did take some books on scrapbooking to read. I also took my Big Book of Handmade Cards. It has a lot of really neat ideas on handmade cards. I read some at the beginning of the practice, because I was sooooooooo bored. After they learned to do more things, I got more interested in what they were doing so I started watching them.

I just stopped by real quick, thanks to an invite from Stacey, I can't read all 8 pages right now, 2 busy days ahead of me, but I'm in, tho I don't know if I'm really qualified, lol. I'll let you judge from my details:

I'm Melinda (obviously, lol), but prefer to be called Mel, but either way is fine.
I'm 41, and have been with my dh for 22 years (23 in Oct.), but only married to him for 18 (19 in Oct.). I have 2 beautiful daughters, Kendall just turned 18 last month, and decided she's tired of being treated like a child, and moved out, but is slowly working her way towards moving back home. She graduates high school tomorrow. Kelsie is 16, and no complaints there.
I worked 12 hours a day for the last 10 years, and missed most of their growing up, but downgraded to part time last October, and work driving a Fedex truck from 5:30 to 9:30 am. I scrapbook and take care of things at home the rest of the day.

And I am always up for a challenge! I have 22 years of pics to get done!

LOL! This made me laugh! You felt guilty for like a minute, right! Hehehehehe! We all like to feel appreciated. Life is toooo short to stay stressed out all of the time because of your job...or annoying family members. Of course, I'm not naming names (my mother-in-law). I hope that you thouroughly enjoy your down time!

I concur with what Amy said a great bunch to chat with here. Welcome Mel. I'm glad 2 hear your oldest bab has made it to the graduation mile stone. I know she threw u a huge curve ball after her b-day, but at least she's still pitching and going to graduate. Alison you lil devil! Love it. You go girl. I laughed so hard my son had to ask "what what" and then I caught Amy's jab at MIL. Now I see we have a new subject that we share. TG my soon 2B MIL is ok. In fact she's more of a grandmother figure in my son's life then his real grandma on his dad's side. Again welcome ladies. And still counting who'd like a challenge. If u don't have time trust me I undestand. I'm only offering 'cause it's summer.

Thanks for the invite, this looks like just the place for me. I need a place to vent about dh and MIL etc too. I am going to go back and catch up on all the chat soon, but now I must go to bed it is 10pm here.
