Holy smokes! Where did the days go!? My last post was launched on Wednesday, though it was supposed to be a Thursday post. That's still a couple days since my last break. I suppose that's what happens when vacation comes around and you don't schedule posts ahead of time. Ah well.
My family is home after an awesome trip to Houston and Galveston!
First of all, THANK YOU to gcrl for the box of cards I received in the mail. All I've done so far is open it and read the note. I cannot wait to see what goodies are in there! I'll be sharing those later this weekend, plus there is a box of "Buyback/Repack Stuff" for PAD Circus. I can;t wait to see what's going on in there... No, really. I can't wait. Let's rip that puppy open!
