Life as Lou


  • January 3, 2012 7:35 pm


The kids are back in school and I am working on getting back to my routine.  I haven’t been feeling my best the past few days; I’m off and on feverish and quite achy without any real explanation. Not really sure what the deal is, but I am feeling up today, so I’m happy to get a better day and get some things accomplished.

Impressed? You should be. Just wait until I get a few more containers and break out my awesome label maker! It's a perfectionist's BLISS!

Yesterday I inventoried and cleaned out my pantry.  It was a disaster after having the kids “help” put groceries away for a few months.  Today I went shopping and filled in a few gaps where supplies were low.  On Thursday I am having my first Tupperware party because it is January and January means 50% pantry organization items!  I am excited to complete my long standing organized pantry project, after about four years of getting just a few containers at the start of each year.  I’m even going to do up the spices since that’s all on sale too!  If you want anything Tupperware, shoot me an e-mail at everydaylou (at) yahoo (dot) com.  Check out the crazy awesome deals right here.  If you want to place an order for my party, you will need to contact me directly.  There isn’t a party-connected online ordering set up, sorry!

It has been wonderful to start teaching seminary again after the break.  You know what I missed most of all?  By teaching seminary, I have the opportunity to testify of Christ every single day.  I get to start my day reaffirming my faith and sharing my love for the Savior.  I really do have the very best job in the church; 5:55am notwithstanding.  Honestly, I like the routine of getting up early as well.  It can catch up to you quickly if you don’t get to bed at night, but mostly I really love it.  We learned about Joshua and the walls of Jericho tumbling down as well as the river Jordan parting for the ark of the covenant.  We learned about faith.

I love seminary.

And I love my awesome seminary kids.

This card is some My Mind’s Eye paper, various punches for the butterflies (Lifestyle crafts, Martha Stewart, I think), a spellbinders label die and a Waltzingmouse Stamps label stamp.  Something springy to compliment the bizarre fifty degree weather we are having in January.  January in the Dakotas usually means bundle way up and don’t go out unless you have to- this is beautiful, spring-like weather, and as much as I love snow, I am very grateful for how well this goes with puppy training my little stinker spring spaniel.
