Last Day of Summer Break


School starts tomorrow and I have so many exciting things planned: returning overdue library books, going to the post office, getting my hair dyed the correct sexy color...I might even pick up the house since I will have five hours to myself and no one to misplace my picked up items.
Today I am babysitting. Well, I am supposed to be, but so far the activity is "entertain yourself" while I make a card for a color challenge over at SplitCoast. The card above is my offering for the day. The challenge at SCS is to make a card with certain colors and the colors are : Eggplant Envy, Old Olive and Taken with Teal. The card I uploaded yesterday got 26 comments, which is way up from the usual 2 or 3 commentsI usally get. So, I was on a mission to load a card to the gallery early and get more comments. I am about to become a challenge chaser, which means I am out to post cards as early in the day as possible in order to get more comments. Thank God I don't have a job and can do this for my own amusement on a daily basis.
Todays plans are to take my kids, and the sweeties I am supposed to be babysitting to "Nim's Island" at the dollar movies. Then we are going to a bounce place to play and we'll have some lunch. The kids I am watching are so easy to take care of they practically watch themselves. Plus, they come with a big older brother who helps out a lot.
We went to the State Fair last night and my kids are still in bed. I have to get them up so we can move on with our fun day. We rode rides, got great free stuff, as opposed to the usual junk and just wore the kids out. My kids look forward to the State Fiar as if it were one of the most fun things we do in this lifetime. It certainly is one of the most expensive!

I wish I didn't have a job so I could be a CC with you!

Can I say that I am a wee bit sad that you didn't include "having lunch with friends again" on your list of exciting things planned....
