It's Saturday Night!

It's Saturday night and finally got done working! Been typing my fingers to the bone and thought I would update my blog with what little strength I have left in my fingers!! It's been busy the last few weeks, which is good because I hadn't really had work for months. But just got off the phone with my boss and I'm off now for until around the 6th of June. Bummer money wise, but great that Richard's on vacation this week and now we can do something together and I can get some scrapbooking done!!

This week the Nascar race is at Dover and it's going to be a nail biter I bet! I didn't get a chance to watch the Nationwide Series today, but I really wanted to. It was on in the other room, but missed 90% of it. Hamlin did win, I know that much. But I have the DVR set up to tape the race so Richard can see it just in case his driver wins (Kurt Busch) or who knows, maybe Sadler will do something this week, he's way over due to have a win or even a top 5 finish!

Since I'm boring and have nothing going on, I'm going to go pick me out a chick flick to watch since I'm all by myself tonight. Maybe 27 Dresses, that's a really cute movie. I have 12 Going on 30 on right now and pretty much just a couple of the dogs are probably watching it, since I'm in the Nascar/Computer room typing this!

Hope you're having a great weekend and hopefully I'll post again soon!!

Talk to you soon!!

It's Already Wednesday!

I can't believe it's already Wednesday! When there's a holiday my days get really messed up and today should be Richard's day off, but since there was a holiday he always has to work on his day off. So this really messes up my week! It's going to take me at least a week to get my days straight!! I hate that!!

Back to working for Terri typing the Board of Parole Hearings for a while anyway. I did miss it and the money will be good when I do finally get paid. She even has given me expedites that are double the page dollar amount!! I hardly ever got them before and so worth working the weekend.

Haven't had time to scrap at all, which is disappointing. I have projects all the place that I've been dying to work on and finish up, but trying to get this weeks typing done by the weekend so I can have the weekend to play.

Richard and a couple of his brothers, Sara and Adam are going camping for the weekend at French Meadows. With all the dogs and all of them going, I opted to stay home. It doesn't bother me not to go though. I'll have more fun here if I can play without feeling guilty about leaving Richard alone while I'm doing it!! lol We don't see that much of each other lately and so I hate to go into my scraproom when we barely get 2 hours a day together.

Richard is on vacation next week though, so we should be sick of each other by the end of the week. We have no plans, but I'm hoping he'll take me to the casino one day for a few hours, but you never know. I'll probably be working all week and won't be able to do anything and then he'll be bored and I'll feel guilty. I really want to work though if there is work, because it's probably not going to last that long and I want to do it while it's available. The money's nice also!!

Hope to post again by Friday, I'm still not that great at doing it that often, but am trying to get better. Typing all the time now makes it harder with tight deadlines and hopefully more expedites for double the page!

Have a great rest of the week and talk to you soon!!

Sad Friday!

Anyone who knows me knows I'm a total animal person, but dogs are special to me. This morning Anthony and my mom lost their very special dog named Turtle (aka Sandy to some). She was such a wonderful dog and will be missed but not forgotten. I read the story about her on Anthony's myspace (tonythesnot) and sat here and started to cry all over again.

Here's one of the picture that Anthony posted on his myspace. She was such a great dog and I'll miss her very much.

I Am Such A Procrastinator!!

It's Monday and I always post updates on Monday morning, but it's already evening. I haven't taken any new pictures yet, but found a few to put on until I stop procrastinating and actually take the pictures.

Here are a few cards that I did for a challenge, but got the flu and never did submit them. They're not that great, but I'm not good at making cards on my own. I did have sketches, but it's really hard for me to follow directions!! lol I'm also really horrible at taking pictures of my done projects and that's probably why I haven't taken any new ones. I'm still learning my camera and it hates me!!

This is a picture of an ABC Book of Me that I'm also working on for a challenge. I do need to take a better picture of it in better light because it shows up as being dark and it's not as dark as it looks.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Talk to you soon!!

I Can't Believe It's Thursday Already!

Thursday is already here and I haven't accomplished anything I wanted to get done this week and the week is almost over. I Hate that!

Was supposed to go with my mom today to the casino in Lincoln, but she got ill at the last minute and had to cancel. I had things to do, so it ended up being a good thing. We'll just have to do it next Thursday!

Got my Rusty Pickle stuff for the challenge that I want to do and can't wait to work on it. My scraproom is so hot though, it's supposed to be 102 today and it will be sweltering back there I'm sure. Will have to wait until tonight to go play.

Should be taking pictures of some projects right now during the daylight, but have no gumption today to get much done. Did a lot this morning before 7:00, but once it started getting hot that's it for me. I don't do well in the heat and this is only the beginning of it!! But Richard and Jim did get the swamp coolers up and the one in the living room is already on and working great!! Need to get a new pump for the one in the bedroom tomorrow. Would have gotten it yesterday on Richard's day off, but he ended up working.

Don't have a lot going on right now. Working and hoping that my job doesn't run out or get eliminated and I'm afraid it will. It's not the greatest job, but it's money!

Have a great rest of the week and I'll try to get motivated to take some pictures of my so far completed stuff and post again later!

Talk to you soon!!

I Hate Mondays!

I know, everyone hates Mondays! Monday is always catch up day for housework and other odds and ends that I didn't get done on the weekend.

Had a really nice and relaxing Mothers Day. Didn't get to see Anthony, but Sara and Adam took us to breakfast and it was really nice. We had a nice visit and caught up on what's been going on with them. Didn't get to see my mom, but will be spending Thursday with her and hopefully Anthony also.

This week I'm hoping to get some scrapbooking done and do a few challenges that I want to do. I finally found some Rusty Pickle papers and other things that I liked for one of the challenges that has to be 80% Rusty Pickle. Hope I get it in time to do it. I'm not a very fast scrapbooker and it takes me forever sometimes to get a layout how I want it.

Will be taking pictures and or scanning some projects I've been working on and am finishing! I did get to scrapbook some this weekend, but not as much as I was planning. Now that I'm no longer working nights I'm hoping to do a lot more! I need to get into a new routine and am having lots of trouble with it. It seems like at night if I'm not on my computer I'm lost!! lol I'm used to being plugged into a headset, foot on the pedal and typing my fingers off. I do miss doing it, but I think it's gone forever unless the new company that has the contract is going to be looking for new transcribers with experience in typing the hearings. Oh well, whatcha going to do.

Hope you have a great week and chat to you soon!!

Finally Friday!!

It's been a long week and I'm glad it's the weekend finally!

Don't have a lot going on this weekend, just going to breakfast for Mothers Day on Sunday. Saw my mom last weekend and will make a plan to spend the day with her hopefully next week for Mothers Day. Anthony gave me 27 Dresses and I just loved it. I've already watched it like 4 times since last Saturday. I needed a new movie and it's perfect. Meeting Sara and Adam Sunday morning at our favorite restaurant in Rocklin. If you haven't tried it, go the Granite Rock Cafe on Pacific down the road from the K-Mart, you will love it!!

I'm hoping to get to scrapbook this weekend, it's been a while. The Nascar race is on Saturday night rather than Sunday and it messes up my whole weekend! lol I enjoy spending Sunday watching the race and when it's on Saturday I don't enjoy it as much. Sunday is usually nap day and the race is always good to nap to unless it's exciting and this should be an exciting one!

Well Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there and hope you have a great day!!

Talk to you soon!

Hump Day!!

I can't believe it's Wednesday already!! Time just seems to fly by lately.

Had a great weekend this last weekend! All the NSD festivities, plus our family get together, what a great weekend. Got to see some cousins that I hadn't seen for probably a year or more, plus both my brothers, my son and step-daughter, aunts and of course my mom. Lots of food and lots of laughing and lot of catching up.

Didn't get any scrapbooking done though for NSD, but did get to play a few games. Didn't win any of them, but I never seem to win games. I ran the Bingo game and guess the button game on and I really have fun doing it. I hate playing Bingo because I never do win, but always come close, so it's much more fun to put the game on! lol

Well it's been a busy week working, but my work email went down and it's a real pain the butt! I can't send or receive emails and hopefully it'll get fixed today because I can't do a lot without it.

Below are a few pictures from my family get together on Satuday. I was the only one taking pictures and I'm the worst at it. Need to take a photography class or something to learn how to take better pictures or figure out what I do wrong!!

Have a great rest of the week and chat at you soon!

It's Friday!!

Friday is finally here and I'm so excited about this weekend!! Not only is it National Scrapbooking Day weekend, but I get to see my cousins that I haven't seen in over a year. Yes, a trip to Galt to see my family on Saturday. Have to take my laptop or borrow my aunts computer to post my games on , but it'll be worth it. I don't want to miss anything, but I won't be able to scrapbook at all on Saturday. That is the only bummer about going to Galt, but I miss my cousins and aunts that I haven't seen in a while. Actually, I miss my mom and Anthony too and even my brothers!! But hey, I won't be able to scrapbooking, but think of all the new pictures I'll have to scrapbook! lol

Hope to see you all around the web celebrating National Scrapbooking Day this weekend!!
