    Love the color combo in the large one and the little guy is adorable! I may have to try that. Looks like the big one had a baby!

    I make time for the things that are important to me .... sometimes, when I was still working, that meant staying up until 2:00
    or 3:00 AM and then getting up at 7:30AM to get ready to go to work. Am I saying this is right for everyone? ...absolutely not...but it worked for me because I've never required a lot of sleep. It, also, helps me to set goals because I am motivated to finish whatever I start and I find that when I do that I find periods of time that before I thought weren't there. :wink:

    It is so true, you have to make time for oneself in this busy lifestyle these days. I have rebel therapy on Saturdays with a group of ladies, we might do alotta talking but it is relaxing and we throw crafty ideas about to work on. :)
