I am slowly going crazy...

123456 switch....crazy going slowly am I...654321 switch!! I think this will be my new theme song...not just because of the kids either. Everything seems to be stressing me out these days. I know I am exhausted and really,really, really, need a break. A holiday would be great but I'd settle for a weekend away. Brian might be working locally soon, so that should help out some.
We had a crazy weekend filled with hockey...3 games in 2 days. The good news is, regular season is over so all that is left is playoffs and two tournaments. Basketball is also coming to an end and so is soccer...yippee...hooray!! I am seriously considering not putting anyone in anything in the spring either. Hopefully that isn't mean of me, I would just rather spend that time bike riding with them and hanging out in our backyard...jumping on their new trampoline! This year,we are going to buy that hammock we put off last year and I plan to make good use of it...now if winter would just go away so I can get on with my plans...hehe.
So, Gavin decided to express himself through his haircut the other day,here, have a look.....

he told us he couldn't have a bath or go to bed cause it would wreck his mohawk...what a kid! It took quite a bit of convincing that it would be ok because he sleeps on the side of his face. Needless to say when he woke up the next day, he ran straight to the bathroom to have a look in the mirror and was too excited it was still there.
Creating scrapbook wise has stalled for me, but I have been having fun making my own banners...thanks to Jessi's help inserting the html code for the first one she made me, it's been a bit easier for me to change it...the current one is the second one tonight I have had there...they are really fun. Also, over the weekend, I began to learn how to make slideshows with really cool effects and set to music. I am planning on making a slideshow with all the hockey teams pics I have taken over the season, burning each kid a copy, and altering the case it will go in...better get started on the cases at least as there are 15 kids on the team. At least it's scrap related, so it may help get me back into the scrappin groove!
I would like to leave you with the following:
