Basically, I got decided on this title "Scrappin Fun" because I really enjoyed and loved scrapbooking. I still do, I'm just in a major rut and hopefully moving on down the road out of this huge rut.
Tonight dh and ds DJ went out on the jetski. What fun! I got some photos and hope to upload them either later on tonight or tomorrow this way I can post them for tomorrow.
My sister and I have started our countdown to her arrival here on Long Island. I really can't wait, even though we were together at Easter. It just seems so long ago. So we have 8 more days! So looking forward to this visit. My neice is especially excited because her and uncle Danny make fires! Shes a little firebug. Plus, she can't wait to get to the beach again. She hasn't been to the beach in 3 years! Alley loves going out on the boat and jetski, my sister said that's all shes been talking about the boat, jetski and making fires! She is too funny.
Ok... I'm getting off here.. Going to watch a repeat of House. I just love that show.
I think it could've been better, but dh only likes the color black so that is what I did. I also stuck a few epoxy stickers with sayings like: WE ARE FAMILY, THE CLAN and MEMORY LANE, just to add a little more color.
Maybe doing this has given me a little spark. I can only hope.
2peas challenge for today. Let's post a random picture that we have recently taken. Kind of like a photo of the day type topic. Ok.. here we go.. This is one of the proudest moments for me of my ds DJ. This was a huge accomplishment for him, since the doctors told us he would not be able to wrestle again. He proved them all wrong and overcame many obstacles to get here being #1 in the toughest League in NY State. btw... did I mention that it was the the 2nd time that I ever cried at a wrestling match. No could believe that I was crying like a baby. It was just very emotional.
Ok... have to get Joseph up for school.... I'm counting the days! Its not going fast enough that is all I can say. Have a great day!

1. CHOCOLATE!- I'm not living the rest of my life without it that is for sure. I probably wouldn't last more than a week without it anyway, lol. That seems to be my life source lately. I would go into withdrawal by the second day.
2. Chicken- I don't really get too tired of eating it. Don't get me wrong... there are days that I'm like "I'm just not having chicken today".
3. Hmmmmm. tough decision..... I'm going with Pizza!- At least it has 3 of the food groups in it. I should be good with this as one of my food items. Plus,, I can always change it up by putting my chicken on it. I love chicken cutlet pizza!
There you go... set for life, lol. This was a really fun challenge Bonnie Rose. This sure would make for a cute layout. It sure is the first thing that has given me a little spark to get down in my scraproom. I wonder if I have any M&M's bags sitting around?....
Ugh... It is time for me to get ready for work. I'm actually enjoying the time away from the house. I'm around a great group of people at the deli and they are really fun. It is a great 4 hours away from dh and the kids. I know that that sounds mean, but it was just getting crazy here with them. Ok, I'm out of here for now, oh btw... I'm thinking of going to crop tomorrow. The just sent me an email that there were still openings. I'm seriously thinking of going. The only thing that is holding me back is the fact that I know this place has little space and everyone is a little tight fitting in there. Oh well.... I think I might still go, I'll keep you posted. Have a great weekend everyone.

Ohhhh my... I wouldn't even know where to start! There is so much going on right now in my life that it just feels like I'm on a rollercoaster. I think my biggest challenge right now is that I need to get healthy again. I've been depressed for about 3 months now and it was just getting worse. All I really wanted to do was eat junk and sleep. So to say the least I've gained some weight and have gotten a lot of flab in the abdomen area that was not like that 4 months ago. Also my RA has been flairing up so I also have not been exercising or walking my 2 miles a day for months now. And since I was having problems with my health insurance I was not able to get my Remicaid treatments for the last 5 months. This just makes me more depressed! I'm not comfortable with my body right now and this needs a lot of work.
With this depression, I just don't want to do anything. So you guessed it, No scrapbooking. I just can't bring myself down there to do one single thing. I don't know what it is, it's not like I don't have the time to do it or the supplies, I just don't want to go down there or even try to get started on anything. This makes me sad since it is something that I truly love to do. I know it will come back to me, but when?
Well, I think this is enough for one day for any person to write or read. So on that note I will close this chapter and move on.
Have a Terrific Thursday!
a/put it in my wallet, hello new shoes!
b/Pass it by, gross, germs!
c/Give the money to charity.
d/Add it to my savings.
Pick your answer and then blog/expand on your decision..
Unfortunately my answer is going to be D even though there is no savings, it would be going towards all my bills (would my answer then be A?hmmm). Especially right now in my life things are really crazy tight with the finances. I know that it sounds greedy, but right now that is just how it is. If you would've asked me this question 2 years ago I would have given half to charity and then the other half would've gone into the savings.
I have to make this short and sweet today. I have to get ready to take Joseph to school (2 1/2 more weeks of this!) and get ready for work.
Have a Terrific Day!

Have a wonderful day!

With that said... It is now 9am here and well I've got to get myself ready to take Joseph to summer school (3 more weeks of this) and then go to work. I think each day will get better. It has to. I will try to update with the 2 peas challenge later this afternoon.
Have a great day everyone!

I can't believe that I'm such a slacker the last week. It has been a pretty wacky and crazy week here to say the least. And the same goes for the weather here.
Last week (Thursday) my doctors decided to put me on a new medicine. Well.... lets just say that it kicked me in the behind. Of course they warned me that it might have that effect on me for the first week or two, but I was not really prepared for it. I just couldn't do a thing. I really didn't want to function, all I wanted to do was sleep! Well, sleep is what I did.
This morning I woke up feeling a little peppy! I'm not going to start jumping through hoops or anything like that any time soon, believe me, but it does feel good to be walking around and doing something. I'm actually thinking about going down to the scraproom and attempting to do something. I'm not sure what at this moment, but hopefully something will spark. I haven't been down there in weeks and have got nothing done at all. I'm baffled as to why I'm in such a rut. Hopefully, this will be the end of that rut.
As for the weekend, we have no plans at all. This is a big surprise and relief since the last 3 weekends we've been on the go none stop. It will be nice to just relax this weekend at home. Maybe I will BBQ tomorrow, we'll see how I'm feeling.
I hope everyone has a TERRIFIC weekend. Hopefully, I will have a layout or 2 to post.

We had to give Lacey a tranquilizer so she wouldn't freak out, but I gave it to her at about 8pm when everything was really starting to go off. Well, it must've been to large of a dose for her and she was almost comatose for the entire night and half the day yesterday. I was scared to death. I stayed up with her the entire night just watching her breathe and hand feeding small morsels of food to keep her strength up. That was the scariest thing for me. I thought to myself OMG I've killed my baby. Thank goodness when I called the vet yesterday morning I wasn't the only who apparently gave too much to there dog and they said to watch her she should be fine. I only gave her 1/2 of her pill, but it was just too much for her little body to handle so the vet said they will lower her dose for next year. I was like, I'm not even going to give it to her next year.I'll just put all the tv's and radios on full blast and put her down stairs where you don't really hear much.
Since the weather has been so crappy here the last week, it has knocked me for a loop! I've been in horrible pain and just can't function. We are going to experiment with some new meds and hopefully that will do the trick. Other than that I really haven't been able to do much. I have no ambition to do anything or even go downstairs to scrap. Lord knows that I have a ton to catch up on, but it's not happening.
ok... getting off here for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.
