Organize your Stuff Week 20 (round 5):WOYWW 148

WoW! What a Wednesday! This is one of those days that has been slow in coming…and yet, it is amazing how fast it has come! Today is What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW) a day when wonderful workers of whimsy share their crafty places and the goodies that they have created! Take a peek over at the Fabulous Julia’s Stamping Ground for the international list of awesomeness…
The POW admits that with Easter on the horizon, and the activities that adds to the schedule she has taken PA Me’s approach…and will get to it later. *sigh* Here is our desk today…

With a very special card…

Today is a big milestone! Today is Day 100! It has been 100 days since Fabulous Spouse boarded a plane left home for the Front. Creative Me reigned herself in a bit, to keep the extras off. It is a simple card, but that is because Fabulous Spouse likes the simple things!

(*The POW’s warning: scroll to the end if you want, the rest is family stuff*)

This week’s picture from the Front is from a Black Hawk helicopter. Fabulous Spouse got the privilege of escorting a group off base. He got to go up in the helicopter, and even visit an Afghan castle! He also got to eat lunch with a Medal of Honor recipient (Our highest military honor for valor) two days ago. So, needless to say, it has been busy over there!

Oldest Child has hit a lull.  Wrestling is over except for the banquet (tomorrow), so the only picture that we have of him this week is the family group shot with the stuffed camels.  It is amazing, the shirt that Fabulous Spouse sent him is an XL...and it fits!

Illusive Middle Child is playing soccer (or football for the non-Americans).  It was just above freezing and raining sideways for his game, so Illusive Middle Child was dressed up as a ball burgler to keep warm!  However, he still likes it...and we had sun for practice the other day.

Finally, Girl Friday (and Illusive Middle Child) had Science and Math Day.  She got to see a disected salmon, play math games, cheat at chess and a bunch of other fun things!

Now we are off to peek!  Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card! I am sure your dh will love it and tell him thanks from me for all that he does serving our country. And to you too. I am sure it must be difficult being along raising your kids. You are both doing a great service to our country. And I love all of your family stuff. It keeps things real. Have a blessed Easter! dani133

I'm sure that card is gonna make your husbands day. Thanks to both of you for your service. I just can't imagine what it must be like holding down the fort while he's away. Blessings to you and your beautiful family.

Oh boy, your children really like to keep busy. It's wonderful to see them at play and not texting, etc.

Happy Easter!

I love your simple and patriotic 100 card. The DH will love it for sure. I thought about asking how one cheats a chess but decided I don't know enough about it and probably wouldn't understand the answer, unless distracting your partner and moving the pieces are involved. I can understand that! Nice piles of creativity in the making on your desk. Happy day after WOYWW!

What a great busy desk. Are those unmounted stamps in the storage area at the back? I spy some yummy inkpads too. Thanks for the snoop and for visiting my blog.

Sam said...

Wow! 100 days. I struggle when my Hubby goes on shift in four days stints and I have to sleep in the big bed on my own! Hugs from South Wales for you and your Hubby. Beautiful card too and I am sure he will love it.
