Easter Card

Hi Everyone!! Wow, the week went by soooooo quickly. . .I blinked and it's the end of the week! I can't believe it. For the past two days, my husband and I landscaped our front yard. It looks much better now. We were waiting for spring so that the plants would have a better chance to survive.

The irony is that I am much more busier now that I don't work at a "real" job. I don't know what the deal is but when I was working at the hospital full time, it seems I had a lot more free time.

As a SAHM, you put on a lot of hats. . .I'm the resident chauffeur, the resident cook, the resident house cleaner. . .on top of that, I'm the cardmaker, scrapbooker, blogger, consultant, counsler, day-minder/planner (yes, I remind everyone what they suppose to do), yadah, yadah, yadah!!

Honestly. . .I love being busy. It's much more fun being crazy busy than crazy bored. LOL! There was a time when I reduced my work hours at the hospital from full time to part-time and I actually went stir crazy because I had no hobby and I was bored out of my mind. I wasn't the type to sit and watch television so what did I do? Well, I cleaned the house.

I would mop the floor daily and I mean DAILY. When you walked into our house, you probably could pass out from all the ammonia. Our house was CLEAN. Our yard was BEAUTIFUL because I would prune the plants in our garden until I ended up with tendinitis and could no longer prune the plants. Our plants were soooooo healthy because I would water them, clean the yard and all these crazy things to fill my time. Thank goodness I now have a hobby! I think I was a bit crazy back then.

Anyway, this is a card I made over a week ago and only now have the time to post it. It's a simple Easter card. . .nothing much to it. The stamp set is by TAC. It's such a cute Easter stamp set. I love it.

Anyway. . .hopefully, things will wind down a bit and I can actually CRAFT. I miss crafting. Whaa!!

Until later, folks!!

Congrats on getting the yard work done. . . something about yard work gives a huge sense of accomplishment! I know what you mean about the SAHM thing. . . it's exhausting! My career was much easier and yes I felt like I had more time too! I also had to share that although I don't have many TAC sets (for obvious reasons) I bought this EXACT set because it's just too cute! Similar taste! Must be why I like your blog so much! Sorry to write a novel. Have a great day!
