What a week!

What a week, after stressing and stressing over a project, I finally got it done....and when I needed to get approval for it before I could send it in my internet went out....and it was out Tuesday, Wednesday and the majority of Thursday. I don't think I need to say that I was lost without the internet! I got nothing mailed last week, emails that needed to go out weren't sent out, and important ones that needed to come into me didn't come it. I'm thankful it's back now!
Could you get any work done if you had to look at this all day?? Not only is the dog doing what she normally does, but my DH had the day off from work and decided to hang out, needless to say I didn't get much done ALL week because of his schedule!
Isn't she a cutie?? My dear friend's daughter wearing the blue dog hat at Michael's on Thursday. We had a field trip to Portland to Michael's, Artist and Craftsman Supply and the Christmas Tree Shoppe. It was a great day, weather was perfect, company was devine and shopping...well perfect as usual!
I volunteer on Friday afternoons at my son's school, so I end up either doing errands before running home and sometimes we even go out to dinner. This week we decided to go to the movies....I loved this poster - and made him pose in front of it. He wasn't to happy with me because I made him stand there....but when his father was done paying for the popcorn he got in the picture and they ended up hamming it up for me........
I wasn't so happy with this picture of my husband, but I did love how the lights in the background came out....don't you think they look pretty cool?
As I was taking this picture while driving down the road it reminded me of something I used to do when my husband was in the Navy on deployment. He was on the USS Carl Vinson off the coast of wherever doing whatever it was that they did to Afghanistan, shortly (months, maybe weeks) after 9/11. I knew he was dreadfully homesick for us, we couldn't talk on the phone and he was to busy to write. I had a website for my watercolor paintings and started a photo page, similar to a blog I guess. I would post a picture everyday of something that happened that day. Sometimes it was me driving down the road and a picture of the weather and other times it was our son or his favorite food or something silly like that. When I took the pictures sometimes I'd be driving down the road...similar to this picture! I got some really cool picturs this way! I'm not sure how much time he spent looking at the pictures, but it made me feel good to share what was going on in our world with him.
That's all for today....ta ta for now and have a great weekend!
