20 days...

since my last post, I am really getting better, aren't I? (grins) I have been so busy doing pages there is hardly any time left for anything else.
We are done with all the birthdays for the year, we just had the last party on Sunday! Yeah! All our kids have birthdays within the span of a month. It's a little easier now that the girls are older and they help out a lot. Michael still likes his wild boy party, so that is always a little more challenging, but it's over now and they had a good time. All they want to do is go outside and play anyway :)
Sunday was also our anniversary, 24 years! I can't believe we have been married that long! Well, as a gift I received a new kitten! Now we have 3 (well, one is more an outside cat) I fell in love with this little one when we went to the store to buy birdfood, she is a little cutiepie! At first Sweetie was having a fit but then I found them in her little house together and she was licking TG all over, so I figure they will be okay. What a Zoo!
I am still scrapping all the time, I just love my job :) I really have trouble doing anything else, all I want to do is sit and scrap all day long. Of course there is so much other stuff involved, like the forums and the gallery and the computer stuff that seems to pop up all the time (if it's not backing up, it's a problem or something else) I haven't even gone to any of my favorite blogs in weeks, neglecting all my friends. Sorry girls!!!
Want to see some pages? Here is the link to my DD gallery for all the credits

I think that is it, here are a couple I made for PixelCanvas:

and here is little TG:

Isn't she just the cutest? what a present :)
Okay, I have to hurry and make dinner, we have Karate tonight and we seem to always get there at the last minute. this was way too much work, getting all these pictures on here. I really must try to do this more often...
Talk to you soon, leave me a note!

I can't even believe it...

...weeks have passed and I haven't done a single post. That much for getting on the ball! I even missed Rachel's birthday! At least I did the pages about it:

Phil is doing much better, he is allowed to drive again and things are going back to quasi normal. My back seems better, I am doing my 50 squats every day to strengthen that bursa area. I went through a couple of weeks where I couldn't get a deep breath in, today is the first day that I feel normal, it feels sooo good to breathe again! It must have been the stress of the last few months catching up with me. Phil was concerned because I have a protein C deficiency which facilitates clotting problems. We had a few scans done and everything checked out okay. I figured if I didn't fall over during karate it couldn't be anything serious and I didn't.
The other day I got a PM from Scrapstreet magazine.com. They want to do a Discovery spot on me, so I have to submit 3 pages and a bio for the december issue (probably) I am so excited about that, I felt so happy about it. I am still having so much fun being a CT for DD. I love using all the new product during the week with the "coming soon" :)
anyway, here are some more pages I did, they can be found in my DD gallery (link on the right)

I am still trying to keep up with the 365 pages too, just a couple of weeks behind. I actually enjoy doing them.

Oh yeah, I got myself a nice little MacBook Pro. It was a little hard to get used to at first and I really truly miss my Windows Life Writer, posting directly to the blog is a real pain anymore. It's a great computer though, I love it. Mozy is working like a charm now, since I don't have to use Norton anymore. I also got a new zoom lens a few days ago, the new Tamron 18-270. That is really a nice lens, I got some great zoom shots and with the stabilizer I could blow them up and they were still crisp. The moon page and the deer are two I did with it.
School is back in session and nobody here was looking forward to it, neither I nor the kids, but hey, what can you do. I will have to get on my google reader and look at all the blogs I neglected in the last few weeks, I feel so guilty not signing in anywhere. It just seems like there was never enough time to do it all. I really should do a blogpost every day, it would be so much easier to keep up with it then.
Okay, if I forgot something, I might post it tomorrow. Here is a page I did for PixelCanvas, I almost forgot. I have to get more active there too.

I know there are pages I forgot to post, but I'll do that tomorrow! Ciao!

Never say Never!

Well, here I am creating my very own blog! I was always very sure I would never get into this blogging "thing", but here I am. I hope you will enjoy finding out a little about my not so interesting life!
