A New Look!! Plus a Template.............free of course.

I am always so envious of the cute blogs out there and fully admit to being jealous of those who can do all the coding etc.  I am not one of those people, lol.  I did try looking at the code and try to figure out the sizes etc in order to do mine but it was just not happening, literally looked like a foreign language to me.  I went to the Graffiti Chicks blog and bought their Blog it Your Way templates, picked my kit (Fly with Me by Ellie Lash) and off I went.  Pretty happy with the way it turned out I already know what I would like to change.  I miss having my slide show of my layouts on the side and would love to add some pretties down the side. Maybe I will make that my summer project.............customizing my blog or should I say learning how.

Science Fair..........this has been a thorn in my side for the last few weeks.  The boy has known about it for well over a month and with many arguments it was finished on time.  He finally decided on a topic as I made him sit with me as we perused the web for ideas appropriate for his age.  Topic picked and off to buy materials for the experiments we went, thankfully not too expensive.  Write ups and experiments were done Sunday, he completed the backboard and got it all put together on Wednesday night.  Did I mention that it was due Thursday?  Loaded it up in the car Thursday and off we went to bring it in.  He presented it yesterday and said felt confident.  The boy got B+ and A's on it!!  While I am happy for him as he did work hard, it kind of blows me telling him he can't wait last minute and expect a good mark.

Now on to hockey.  We are nearing the end of the season and the boys still have a chance at making the playoffs, it's slim but they are still in it.  B~man plays defence and they are short right now with three of his defensice linemates out with injuries, needless to say it translated to a lot of ice last night.  It was every other shift as we only had 3 and they pulled a forward back to make it 4.  The whole team played awesome and it showed with a 3-1 victory over the first place team!  A night off Friday to be a kid, go to the dance and sleep at a buddies house and back in the rink tonight and again on Sunday.

Well I still have nothing accomplished in terms of getting ready to go away. I'm feeling a mental health day coming next week so I can get organized, right now Thursday is looking good.. but it may be Wednesday.
Our vacation begins!!

I have a template for you again tonight :)  Hope you like it and look it's got room for two pictures this time, lol.  You can click below to get the link.
