So much to do....so little time.....

^%(^%^%(^.....to having to wait for stuff to dry! You believe when I woke up yesterday, the floor in the Star Wars Toys Store was still wet? I didn't! LOL. So, I decided to build some shelves. They were pretty simple......Took foam core board and cut it down to one inch strips....Then into 6 1/2 inch strips. I made the distance in between the shelves 2 inches, because most of the toys I have are this height. Well, the figures aren't that tall, but their light savers are, lol. Anyways...here's the shelves, with their first coat of joint compound. It took all day, in between waiting for the glue to dry- to adding the compound.....Had to let them sit over night.
......I have managed to use up the whole bucket of joint compound...lol.....so I'll have to wait till I can get some more.

I'm taking the kids to DC this weekend to see Grandma and Grandpa for Easter....and will probably stay until Tuesday. She's taking Monday off so she can take the kiddos to a museum or 2. And I, depending on what my heart is doing that day, may tag along......Damn Mom, I'm suppose to have more energy than you!! I have so much stuff to do before I leave, I'm overwhelmed! LOL...But I tend to work faster under pressure.

*De......You're box is wrapped...hopefully it will be in the mail tomorrow.

*Chris, I have your stuff in a pile, on top of a box.....hopefully it will be in the mail tomorrow!

*Debbie....I'm still working on something Great over here...just can't figure out if I should wrap them or leave them unwrapped??? I hate to ruin the surprise....but a little help here, Please?? :)

Oh Katie are they for me? they are wonderful.. Unwrapped or wrapped I don't know. I think Unwrapped or maybe they should be wrapped. Decisions decisions, can I leave it to you..
