There's No Place Like Home

How fitting that I am sharing this card with you today. It's 10:30 at night and I am sitting down for what feels like the first time today. I set off at 8:30 this morning with Colin and Evan to make a trip to visit my Mom. We had a day of shopping planned since we have a baby shower coming up on Sunday. If you live in Illinois you know we have 2 seasons - Winter and Construction. It's been in the 80's the last few days so that rules out winter. On the way there we got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic on I-294 where they are attempting to add lanes to ease congestion. Forget about the fact that the construction doesn't do anything to ease congestion, nor does it bring forth a happy and cheery atmosphere.
All in all we had a good day shopping. I got to go to Archiver's and Hobby Lobby - two stores we don't have in the far southern suburbs. I wish one of the stores would move here but the lady at Archiver's said that they want to spread nationwide before opening more stores in the Chicago area. Bad news for me . . . good news for my husband.
After spending the day shopping we waited out traffic before coming home and I ended up getting lost! I missed my exit onto I-80 and was headed for Indiana. Evan is sleeping, Colin is watching Wallace and Grommit for the 2nd time of the day, but it keeps him from pounding on his brother in the backseat. Roger got us turned around after I called him and explained we were lost and I didn't know how to get home from where we were. What a nice 20 minute detour we had. Now that I am home and unpacked it is evident that I was not going to get any stamping in today. Instead here is another card from my VSN weekend. The theme was based on the Emerald City and my first thought was Dorothy and her ruby slippers. I sure needed those slippers this evening. I added glitter to her shoes, but it just looks gloopy in the picture, although in real life they sparkle nicely.
I hope you have a great evening! I for one am off to bed.
