Another day / another layout
I am really pleased with this layout.
I do like the way it looks, love it, actually. But more than anything I am thrilled to have overcome the challenge of getting the paper to work for me. I knew the photo was a good match for the paper color, but I really didn’t know what else to do with it.
I like the outdoor, pond like look of the finished product. I didn’t journal as much as I would have liked to, but I’ll do some hand written journaling on the back for my own records.
I spent most of the day today waiting for volleyball coaches to return my call. I’m still waiting. I am supposed to be writing pre-season volleyball stories for the fall sports magazine. (I can here you laughing, really, it is not my style.)
I called the coaches last night and didn’t here anything back from them. But since today was short-day at school I figured I could get a response today. So, I called and left messages at the school.
I called one of them on her cell-phone. She answered but said she couldn’t talk because she was getting ready to go into volleyball practice.
So I waited.
I called the other one and left another message at school.
I called her at home.
I answered a call from my editor. He asked me to go cover a murder in Stansbury Park. Sure, I said, but I’m waiting for a phone call. He asked someone else to cover the story. I waited some more.
I am going to send e-mails to both of them tonight to see if they will respond in writing.
Meanwhile, I spend most of the day waiting around for the phone to ring.
You would think they would want to have their team written about in the fall sports magazine.
Now I find myself with yet another reason to hate volleyball. (Sorry Tracey)
I went to back to school night with the boys tonight.
The school library took the opportunity to have a book fair and I returned with two “Super Fly Guy” books and a “Sea World Tycoon” computer game.
Now I am just waiting to tuck in the boys. Greet David at the door as he comes home from yet another late night working two jobs then watch “Project Runway.”
I’ll bet you wish you were living my glamorous life.
