Of course, I have now run out of colored ink and white cardstock and a trip to Target, Staples, Office Max, or all 3 is in order. The hubs agreed to babysit tomorrow so I can run out solo (what's that like?), but quite truthfully I want to go now!!! I have to remind myself that tomorrow is right around the corner.
