MIA but I do have a freebie for you

I know I have been MIA for the last month. I haven't really been gone, just extremely busy with going back to work. School is back in session which means my time is limited and to be honest I am exhausted when I get home.

Add to that the B~man is playing travel hockey again so we have practices and 2-3 games a week. I wouldn't have it any other way though, love being in the arena. The team and the parents are wonderful. He wasn't treated like the 'new kid' and has made fast friends. I grew up here so for me it's making old connections.

Speaking of school, he loves his new school!! B~man is enjoying walking to and from every day (granted it isn't really cold or snowing yet), I think it's the freedom to be pokey to be honest, lol. I also signed the permission form stating he may leave school grounds at lunch break which he has done a couple of times with his buddy. Tried out for and made the school soccer team as well and he has a girlfriend!!!!! I am so not ready for this...................he will be 12 in November *sigh*.

The top braces went on the beginning of September and all is well. Not quite sure when the bottoms go on, we have another appointment in a couple of weeks and will find out then. About the braces......he loves them. Yep, smiles more now then he did before but I think that's because his teeth were such a mess that anything is better. Can't believe how small and inconspicuous they are.

I just love seeing him so happy. If I ever doubted my move back to my hometown, seeing B~man so happy erases them for sure. My parents love seeing him and being closer as well, I must admit I do too. Now I just have to work on me getting a social life, lol.
Look at all of my babbling......must try to not be gone so long.

Scrapping News--just a few things going on in my fave places.
Scrap Orchard is celebrating October as Customer Appreciation Month.
If you sign up for their newsletter each week they are drawing for one person to win $25 to the Scrap Orchard Market. Not to mention all new releases are 20% as it is.
DSA has Fall Madness and the Fantasy Scrapper League going on. Go check that out for some scrapping fun.
Sunshine Studios is having a CT call. If you would like to become a Sunshine Sweetie go sign up and join in the fun.
The DigiChick is having a mega October. Each day for the month there are different challenges and prizes. You have until November 3 to complete them for the goodies. I've joined in and loving them so far.

Well that's my report on my favourite haunts and what's going on. I'm sure there is more in digiland but those are where I spend my time, lol.

Here is a template that I made and it's based on this layout: Just Smile
