You're Appreciated (and Monster Math Freebie)

This past Wednesday was Administrative Professional's Day.  Oops! You forgot too.  As usual, I had to be reminded of this special day. I'm not a slacker, but I truly struggle with managing everything that goes on from day to day- events, meetings, unofficial secular holidays and so forth.  Yes, I have a handy dandy planner that has all my son's baseball games, practices, family birthdays, SST and IEP meetings, parent conferences, Spring Festival, the Van Halen concert and so forth. Even with the planner, I just get wrapped up with life. 

Life Happens~  
At times, it overwhelms me~

I'm the one who always has good intentions. I want to do it, I need to do it, but then....well...the occasion has come and gone. I struggle with just running down to the local Walmart to pick up something quick and easy.  It's a personal thing for me, but sometimes not always I just feel like it has minimal thought. It's last minute.  I want the recipient to know that I really, rEaLlY, REALLY, thought about them.  So I really need to work on getting with the program and plan ahead.( A lot of "really's")

We received a friendly email from our principal on Thursday maybe Friday to remind the staff to thank our five WONDERFUL, AWESOME Secretaries and Office Staff. They are truly out of this world.  How they manage all that they do is truly amazing to me.  Maybe I should ask them for a quick tutorial on how to keep it all together because they truly have it together.

So today, I headed into my craft room to "Create."  About an hour or so later, I emerged  with the following handmade cards for Mrs. B, Mrs. M, Mrs. W, Ms. M, and Ms. B. I still have time to redeem myself...(I hope!)

AND a simple, yet cutesy notepad for each of them

Don't forget this freebie:


  1. LOVE the cards! They are going to love receiving them!

  2. hahaha!!! I was going to give them notepads! So funny . . . I wonder what else I can scrounge up . . . (And I LOVE the little flowers on the notepads!)
