Everyone's Doing It

Got this idea from Cathy Zielske, who got it from Ali Edwards.


Outside my window... The grass is long and really needs to be cut.

I am thinking... of going in my scrapbook room and creating something. But that would mean I'd have to clean it first and I'm not really digging that idea.

I am thankful for... Friends and Family who care about me. That my family is healthy.

From the kitchen... Left over Salmon salad and crackers.

I am wearing... Comfy grey pull on cropped pants and a pink Pebbles, Inc t-shirt.

I am creating... Not much of anything lately. Taking another on-line scrapbooking class at Big Picture Scrapbooking, so hopefully...

I am going... to do a lot of nothing this weekend. Guess that won't help my previous answer, huh? (heavy sigh)

I am reading... Just finished Janet Evanovich's Finger Lickin' Fifteen. Thinking of starting the Charlaine Harris Dead series or possibly, dare I say it, the Twilight series.

I am hoping... to find my creative mojo again someday. Also that my kids will actually get along one day.

I am hearing... my kids arguing, screaming, and fighting.

Around the house... lots of work (fixing up) that needs to be done. Kids toys everywhere.

One of my favorite things... Eating out. Listening to music. Movies. Scrapbooking. Spending time with family and friends.

A few plans for the rest of the week... It's the weekend, so I plan on relaxing and taking it easy. Then it's back to work on Monday.

Father's Day 2009

For Father's Day the kids decided to let their Dad have the wii control so he could play the wii for a change. We were looking at these celebrity mii's on the "Check mii out channel" that people had designed. One of them was a girl with the initials E.F. and her skill was singing. We looked at each other trying to figure out who E.F could be and he said "Isn't there an Emily Falconbridge?" I started giggling and told him she's a scrapbooker. I keep telling him he needs to start scrapping with me. It's good to know he actually listens to me, even when I talk scrapbooking. For those non scrappers who don't know who Emily Falconbridge is she's listed in my blogroll. Check her out, she's amazing. I took one of her classes from and it was by far the best on-line class I've taken, and I've taken several.

Life is Busy

It's been a very busy couple of months. Between personal time off, holidays, vacation days, and furlough days, I don't think I've had a 40 hour work week in the last 12 weeks. I think it's gonna be very hard getting back to my regular work routine. We've ran tests, tests, and more tests on Samantha to find out what is causing her to have blood and protein in her urine. During a renal ultrasound of her kidneys they found stones in her gallbladder. The stones are totally unrelated to her kidney problem. After meeting with a Nephrologist (kidney specialist) we're still unsure what is causing the blood and protein, so they're running more tests. She had her gallbladder removed a couple days ago. She's doing fantastic. She's my little Rock Star. What a way to spend her summer vacation. I guess it's better to have all this going on now instead of during school.
