Each kid has one main chore to do, that's the top row. A chore they my have to help me with on my bad pain days, that's in row two. The very bottom row is extra chores they may have to do or help with on the weekend.
The chores are held on by magnets and usually get moved by which ever child is being the bossiest that night. So yes you guessed it sometimes it was moved twice, the little brats. As life goes My oldest, Zak, when he got a job that ment he could just pay the younger ones to do his chore. I didn't care as long as the chore was done and nobody was fighting. Have a great day. I'm off to reorganize my stamps Out with the soon to be retired and making room for the new to make me inspired :)

Stamps: Embrace Life
Paper: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Tangerine Tango & a Black Stampin' Write marker
Accessories: Pretties Kit half pearl, Lg Oval and Wide oval punches, Bone Folder
Technique: Paper Distressing
This is Club card #3. To make the flower I used the bone folder to distress a 21/2 x 21/2" piece of Tangerine Tango CS until it was very soft and the CS was starting to separate. Then I stamped the flower and cut it out. Glued it to the White CS then gently pulled up the edges around the petals until they curled up slightly. I wish I could take credit for this idea but once again due to my bad med reaction I cased this card too. Thanks Monika your idea was awesome. I tried to leave a comment on her site but for some reason I wasn't able to. So when you check out her site, http://www.stampnmad.typepad.com/, please tell her I said Thank You.
Have a great day everyone! I'm off to run to town and when I come back I hope to catch up on some stamping Challenges I missed. When I do I'll post them. Happy Stamping!

A little back ground in case you are interested why the meds. I had carpel tunnel surgery done on both hands about 4 yrs ago. The Dr. fixed that problem BUT after my left hand was done I woke up from surgery with pain, nothing unusual or worse that the right hand was, and the pain never went away :( They have yet to diagnose what is causing it. I had an MRI done and they did find some deterioration in my neck. I just got done with a 2yr court battle with comp to include my neck. So any way I just started seeing another new Dr (this is like the 5th Dr I have been sent too) for pain management. Anyway that basically means that once again I have to retry all the different meds so HE can see how I react to them. UGH I tried to tell him that I don't do well on most of them and they cause me lots of problems. Its is ALL in my records, but no he has to see for himself and try a new combinations. So what everrr its not them that has to put up with all the side affects, which by the way I don't react well to pain killers that's part of the problem. Ok deep breath ....thanks for reading my vent. I'm off to clean up from my club last night and do some stamping to post later. Have a great day
