as ready as I'll ever be...



I think I'm ready for Offspring #2's high school graduation this weekend. Let's look at the checklist:

1. House de-junked and cleaned? Check!
2. New sod completed on what had been embarrassingly dead front lawn? Check!
3. Party planned and platters purchased? (See -- I can do alliteration with the best of 'em!) Check!
4. Short video retrospective created of Offspring #2 to show to friends and family? Check!
5. Cookbook of grandma's recipes (along with old family photos) self-published as a surprise "thank you for coming" gift to the rels? Check!
6. Is Barb an over-achiever? Check!

Posting might be sketchy until next week...

BTW, blurb.com is AWESOME if you ever want to self-publish something at reasonable rates.

Fancy schmancy alliteration!

Have a wonderful time this weekend... relax & enjoy every moment! The cookbook looks way cool... you are an overachiever!

so you are an over-achiever. The truth is out! but what a cool idea. I WANT one of those cookbooks! Are you selling them? (A fundraiser for schooling???)

I've posted the cookbook link on my main blog page for now... but don't know if anybody would REALLY want that book outside of the rels!! :)

p.s. If you click on "book preview", it gives you a pretty good sampling of the book!

I checked it out! I love the layout. ...If I ever publish anything (maybe my book about Scout...)

I know you've got a busy, busy weekend... but after that I did post my horse sermon and I'm not horsing around...ha ha ha (I crack myself up when it's late.)

Let us know how everything went (and thanks for the link...I want to make a book someday)
