I still have no idea what I'm going to do for this challenge. I went through my box and the only thing I accomplished was putting away the last swap I received. I have this weekend off so I'll probably try again then.

Hi everyone. JCI. I've been ridding out around our house, starting with our bedroom. What a JOB! Wish I didn't have the whole rest of the house to do too. I'm wanting to start repainting most of the rooms and decluttering all of them too. Hoping to get a little scrapping in soon.

Sorry to hear you gals may be in for more snow. Yuck. My oldest dd's birthday is on April 12th and it has snowed here on her birthday before. So far though we seem to be out of the snow and into the rain. We still have high water from all the melting snow and rain we've already gotten and now we are in for what looks like 4 more days of rain.

I sure hope this crazy weather straightens out soon. We'll probably get all the rain now and have a dry summer. Not good for the garden. We usually only put out a small garden, but with the rising cost of food and fuel, I plan to put out a much larger one this year. Need to can/freeze as much as possible. Can't say I'm looking forward to that, but it seems necessary at this point.
