Tuesday Update

Well, I was not as busy as I thought I would be today. But I did manage to take a few photos of my day. So here are a just a few that I will eventually be working with to complete my "A Week in my Life".
This is my mug that I use everyday. I love this mug very much. I've had it for about 10 years now and of course my dh dropped something on it and broke the handle off of it about 5 years ago. I won't get rid of it.
Here is my stereo system that I was listening to this morning when I got up.
Ahhhh.. here is my noisy bird that annoys everyone.
Oooopps... this is me typing on my blog this morning, lol.
I was due to color my hair... The gray is just insane. So off to Sally Beauty Supply I went.
This is been quite uplifting. Now I really just need to keep busy. Check back tomorrow to see what I'm doing.

A Week in my Life

Happy Rosh Hashanah.

I can't believe it that I'm getting on here again this week. My goal is to try to get on at least 4-5 days this week. So far, so good, lol.

So yesterday I was checking out Noelia's blog: everyday telling of a story-Noelia and she mentioned Ali's blog: { A }: weekend creative : documenting a week in your life which gave me a little spark. I think this is something I can seriously do. So I am starting today. I know its really not the beginning of the week, but it will be the beginning of my week in my life. I am so looking forward to doing something creative. Its been a long time since I've felt like this so I hope something really good comes out of all this.

This week I'm just trying to be mellow and not get stressed out about everything around me. This is very difficult for me. Lately, I've stressed out about everything- little or big! Most of my stress stem's from Joseph. Did I mention that I'm starting to count the days to when he turns 18! He makes me nuts.

Other than that, I'm off to get on my bean and workout a little bit. Getting my day started and off to document my 1st day of my week in my life.

Come on back tomorrow to see what I did today.
Hope you all have a Terrific Tuesday

A week in review

Whewwwwww! What a freakin' week. Lets see so much going on. Well, as I mentioned Joseph got a job and of course that lasted all of 3 days! As usual, Joseph didn't want to listen to me and didn't do the right thing and was let go. I think the only way I'm going to get to this kid is if I stop caring. So I now have a new plan. I DON'T care what he does. He is going to dig himself in deep and I'm not reaching in for the save anymore! He was also kicked out of school for 3 days because of his nonsense. I'm finally throwing my hands up and letting faith take over. I hope it works. It's now time for tough love, he has made me sick for the last time.

Enough about Joseph..... I'm getting everything ready for a tournament on Sunday that I'm running the concession stand for. This is usually a very fun event for me, but this time around I'm finding it a little difficult.I know that everything will work out just fine (it always does), but I still stress out about it.

I'm also working on this Hall of Fame for the Wrestling Coach. I'm sure I mentioned that he asked me to represent him, which is a huge honor for me. We've already had our first committee meeting and of course I'm the only woman witha a group of 25 men. Of course most of them are wrestlers and or officials. There is a lot of work that I have to do for this event which is taking place in April. I'm looking forward to doing the collage pages of my Coach and posters that he really wanted to display. It will be a very exciting night that's for sure.

I'm actually going to try to get a little scrapbooking done this week if I can get the table all cleaned off (there is tons of stuff cluttering my life). I really want to get my journaling and titles done for the pages that I started at the crop last weekend. Other than that nothing much else is going on. I'm hoping to get on here and 2 peas everyday this week. Not promising anything, but hoping I can.
Hope everyone has a Marvelous Monday!

What a Weekend

Well, Friday got a little hectic for me. My sister-in-law called and asked if I wanted to go to a movie, but she wanted wanted to go early (so did I, because I had a crop), so I said yes. We headed out to the movie theater at 4:15pm and we saw Ghost Town. I have to tell you... what a cute movie! The main character was very funny, in a dry way. Greg Kinear was very good also as the dead guy. It was not a "Oh my goodness, it's the best movie of the year" movie, but it was a cute movie for something to do and only have to pay $5.00 bucks for the early movie.

Right after the movie, I was off to my little crop. I always have a great time with these ladies. I laugh so much when I'm there and get to talking most of the time that I don't get anything done. Lets not forget that a lot of my stuff in still in Vegas! I did manage to play around with a few photos that I brought with me and of course bought lots of paper and the well... the Big Bite! I wonder how long it will be before I actually use it. I'm hoping not too long. I do have a few little projects that I'm going to have to start working on very soon and one I think will be a little overwhelming for me, but keeping my fingers crossed.

Saturday, brought me back to crop again and still not production out of me. More talking then anything else. There is something wrong with me. I'm hoping to finish up the 3 layouts that I started there by the end of this week. Who knows if it will actually happen.

Sunday, I did mostly cleaning and laundry and that was pretty much it.

Good news.... Today, Joseph went for an interview for a job at the local grocery store Shop Rite and they hired him. I hope this all works out. He needs this. Plus it will keep him off the street in town all night long, hopefully!

Well that is it for now. Tomorrow I have full day. Things to do until 2pm and then a Dr's appt. at 2:30 then I have a meeting for the National Wrestling Hall Fame at 7 pm. That should be fun and I'm sure I will be exhausted by the end of the evening.
Hope everyone has a Terrific Tuesday!

All my friends that visit me here and most are from 2peas. You all are just wonderful! You guys always listen to me ramble on about nothing important to you and still manage to lift my spirits! You are always encouraging, which really helps me. You guys are like my own little cheerleading squad! I really don't know what I would do without all of you. You are TERRIFIC!

Now... I just ordered about 70 photos from Clark (they are having a 6 cent sale, code: c6cents) I'm hoping to get somewhat creative in the next week or so and lets not forget that I have this crop this weekend that I'm really looking forward. Those gals are also WONDERFUL! Dee is just terrific and when I'm stuck on something she always has an idea. Also lets not forget that I left my entire crop suitcase in Vegas in April! so a lot of my stuff is there. I do have lots still downstairs just have to dig it all out. I think its going to be a great weekend!(keeping fingers crossed, lol).
Here's hoping that I get back on here again tomorrow night after my infusion, if not... I will definately try for Friday. Have a great evening.

I just can't...

Ugh! I just can't seem to even get on here and write. Something is seriously wrong with me. I've been going crazy trying to get (keep) Joseph in school that my head is spinning and I just can't seem to jump off the rollercoaster yet. Hopefully, things will calm down soon and I will be able to get my full physical also.

I feel horrible that I'm out of the loop lately! I really want to create, but just can't seem bring myself to do it. I did sign up for a crop for this weekend so hopefully my friends there will get my mojo flowing. They are pretty good about getting me moving.

I've been trying to keep up with everyones blog and what's going on. You guys are really busy creating it's wonderful! I just love that. I can't believe the stuff you guys are doing. I was just checking out Sarah 2pawsdesigns-Sarah C blog and she is truly amazing... she is doing T-shirt bags that are going to be just wonderful. Toni Moved to the Mountains-Toni always has a card or two that she has done and this lady rocks at cards. I wish I was that talented! Well.. I'm going to mossey on over to a few other blogs tonight and see what everyone else is doing. Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow.

What is your Fairy name?

Saw this over at my friend Sherri's blog (5 things I do what I do).
I think it fits me almost perfect! #1: I ramble, #2: I can be a witch, #3: I am weird and #4: I have almost russet colored hair which is normal very bright!

Your fairy is called Bramble Yewwitch
She is a weird enchantress.
She lives in leafy dells and bluebell glades.
She is only seen in the enchanted moment between sleep and waking.
She wears bluebell-blue dresses. She has russet-coloured wings like a brightly coloured butterfly.

I know....

...it's been a week since I posted. I just don't get the time right now as regularly as I use to. Things here are pretty much the same. Joseph is just driving me crazy as usual. I wish I knew of a place that would take him, because he apparently doesn't want to follow my rules or go to school. He has missed 3 days of both his gym classes so far and this is day 4 of school!

DJ is doing pretty good with a crappy schedule at college due to his tardiness of registering for classes! He will have to suffer for the semester! That's all there is to it!

I've just been so exhausted the last few months I don't know what to do! All I want to do is sleep, but most of the time I won't. I just don't have any energy. I need a boost. Hoping something snaps into place soon.

Thats it for now... Hopefully, I'll be back tomorrow with an update. I really miss you all! Have a great night!
