Another bad week

We start the week off with my Michael (my husband) falling after his leg stiffened up and broke his arm. Serious pain and swelling when I came home, take him to the ER and off course it is broke. He didn't think it was broke so he waited until he was in so much pain that he had to go. This pain has weakened him even more than before, falling on me and the kids many times this week. I know he is tired, because I am worn out. I don't know what to do for him, and I keep doing the wrong thing trying to help. I just keep hoping it gets better.

Get to go to Louisa, Kentucky for Thanksgiving, I would rather die, but it makes Michael happy. Would love to cook 1 Thanksgiving dinner in Kentucky since we moved here in 2000.

Wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Long time no POST

Well a lot has changed in the past few months. Got off my anti depressant and quit my job at the pediatric office and became a paralegal trainee. But instead filed for one of the most anal lawyers who has ever walked this earth. Finally, I am doing what I was hired to do and work is wonderful. My son wants to quit college, my daughter has this constant pain, with CT scans and x-ray that show nothing. My husband is doing better and life is getting to be somewhat less stressful, but not completely.

No time to scrapbook though until this weekend over at Bad Girls. Got my Slice that I really really wanted and haven't had a chance to use it. Using that this weekend too.
So I hope you head on over and come join the fun.
Bye for now

Vanilla Joy Contest

Vanilla Joy is having some awesome giveaways, with different prices everyday. Please click on this link to win

Life has been a little bit hard the last week or two. Work has actually been upsetting my stomach. Don't know if I should look for another job. I really love the people I work with, but management has a lot of work to do. Brandon had his first day of college yesterday and he had his first accident. An old lady wasn't paying attention and rear ended him. Luckily he wasn't hurt, but there was some damage to his 4 runner.

It has been a long day and my head is beginning to hurt.

So good evening all, until the next time.

All Day Crop

Saturday was a great day for me. I finally had a whole day to do something I love. I was able to complete about 5 pages and did 2 challenges for I have been a member from the beginning and it was one of the best things I have done. I makes me challenge myself and the DT's work is just amazing.

This page is about Allie's 10th Birthday, even though she was still Allison back in 2003. This is for the 1st Birthday Challenge at Bad Girls.

This one was from July 26, 2008. I needed something where Allie was wearing something orange and she didn't alread have any pictures to we had a little photo shoot. The photo of the page didn't come out as well as it could but it will do. It was for the Bad Girls July Apron Challenge. This was the first time that I have entered.And of course you cannot have a party with your party hat, so here is mine that I made. I think it is very Bad Girlish!!!!

Have a great day.

My Baby's First Prom

Ok, she is just a freshman, but she went with a group of friends. The tanning sessions, the picking of the dress, the hair and makeup, the nails were better to her than the prom itself. She was so nervous when she left, and was greatly disappointed when she got there. But she will do it again for the next 3 years. I just think she is gorgeous, but I am a little biased, because she is my one and only baby girl.

Here is one of her pretty face.
This one is while we were looking for a good spot to take pictures. Love that she has her phone with her. Can't do anything without that phone, you would think that it was an important organ that keeps her alive.

She has grown up too fast. My little lady is truly a little lady. Brandon didn't want to go to his senior prom but I got a picture of the 2 of the them (actually getting along).

Life has just smacked me in the face with my kids being young adults. I am just not ready for them to grow up and leave. I will cry when Brandon graduates. Just another step before leaving the nest.

It has been a long time

Life has been a little busy for me lately. Work and taking care of things is getting a little crazy. I am behind on everything, housework-somewhat given up on that, if I can keep it vacuumed that is good enough. Checking account-about a month behind on that. Grocery shopping-did that this past week but that was 2 months of the kids complaining there wasn't anything to eat (just none of the snacks that they want).

Brandon's graduation is creeping closer. It is now scheduled for June the 7th with the last day of school on the 4th. Allison is going to Prom even though she is a freshman-she is going with one of her guy friends. That is May the 10th, went shopping last weekend and we found a beautiful dress that suited her and me and her father as well. Scheduled her hair and make-up for early that morning. I am so excited. I just wish Brandon wanted to go. I didn't go to any of my Prom's and I don't want him to regret not going later in life. But it is his choice.

Allison has been having panic attacks, don't know yet what the cause of them is. Have a doctors appointment tomorrow and maybe we can find some clues as for the cause.

Michael has MS and has had a few serious falls this past week. Has the scraps and bruises to prove it. The bad thing is that he usually falls face first. Luckily one of the kids have been with him. Brandon was able to pick him up but Allison had to call me at work and I came and picked him up. He has such a great outlook even though this disease is terrible.

On the brighter side of things I had a good month of March won supplies from Paper Trunk.

Also won a ring from Teresa Collins.

Have pictures later of Allison's prom dress.

Have a good couple of weeks or months, until I write again.

I want a slice so bad, but I have a Silhouette that I have yet to use. But this is so cute and looks so much easier to use. I haven't pre ordered yet, but I want one!!!! My scrapbooking addicted personality has to have one. PPPPPPPPlllllllllllllleeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzzee.

Onto other news, the kids are both sick with sinus infections. Allison hopefully has the depression under control. She is now on the same medication as me and maybe, she won't be at the same dosage as me. Michael now has the cough I had 2 weeks ago, and the one Allison still has. He really doesn't need to get sick.

Still need to finish the pages I did 1 month ago when I went to Louisville for the crop across america. This weekend I will finish and post some of the better ones.

Keep warm and thanks for coming.

The Flu Hits Georgetown Kentucky

It has been an extremely long week. Worked late just about every night. The flu has hit here and when you work at a pediatrics office, that mean late nights. The schools closed Thursday and Friday because of the amount of students and teachers that were sick. Luckily no one in my family has got it. I have a little cold but not the flu.

Michael has gone to his parents house to try to fix their computers. I didn't have to go because Allison has a friends wedding to attend. I like his parents, but prefer not to have to go. I am enjoying just doing nothing and trying to catch up on sleep.

So I am off to bed since it is now 1 am.

Catch you later.

It is all about ME

What Natalie Means
You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the world better than most people.You also have a very active imagination. You often get carried away with your thoughts.You are prone to a little paranoia and jealousy. You sometimes go overboard in interpreting signals.You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection. You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive. You have the classic "Type A" personality.You are a seeker. You often find yourself restless - and you have a lot of questions about life.You tend to travel often, to fairly random locations. You're most comfortable when you're far away from home.You are quite passionate and easily tempted. Your impulses sometimes get you into trouble.You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.

I look so old in this picture, guess I look 40 in this one. I don't think this is too accurate about me, the good is true but I don't think I am flaky or irresponsible. Where did they get their facts from?

40th Birthday

Well, Saturday was my 40th Birthday and I was sick, the whole weekend. Didn't go to work on Monday, and find out today, that they threw me a surprise party and I wasn't even there to celebrate. Not good at all. The year 2008 has bit the big one in my opinion. First, on New Years Day, I find out that someone that was in my house, stole my sons IPOD. This got me made me mad, but I got over it and said I didn't care to have any of my kids friends over, because one of them is the one that stole it. Second, the kids that were already here, decided to throw the power pack for Allison's lap top off the balcony, where my camera just happened to be sitting. Broke the glass on the display, had to ship it to New Jersey in order for it to be repaired. Ending up costin $305 to repair it. Still waiting for it to be shipped back. I have all these pictures I want to take and don't have my camera.

Here is some pictures of Brandon and Allison playing Rock Star. Fun game, I am just not very good at it.

Thanks for lissening to my rants.

Happy New Year

My first post for the year 2008. Spent the day alone, which was good, went to Michael's and bought some crafty stuff to finish my Prima container. Went to my friend Gayle's liquor store and spent some time with her. Came home to a house full of kids, not all mine, but that has been the way it has been for the last two weeks.

So happy New Year to all.
