My Crazy Life

OMG I haven't posted on my blog in almost 3 weeks!! Someone beat me with a thousand wet noodles! So where have I been? Work, for some reason has been crazy. Maybe it is the heat making it feel that much worse, I dunno, but I come home and I just want to collapse. This heat has to break sometime...OMG I can NOT wait for cooler temps!! Then there is all the family stuff going on right now...uggggg I wann shoot whoever made me think that when the kids grow up you don't worry any more. Because you do worry, and OMG they are so much bigger worries than when they were little. Then I get a $600 electric bill! WTH??? This is wrong, has to be wrong! Good lord! We are fighting it, I get to call SCE again tomorrow and dispute it. Oh what fun! NOT! And the homicide not far from us. WHAT are these damn kids thinking? Why would you kill someone because they were trying to stop you from tagging their place?? What a waste. Now a family has lost thier mom, sister, grandma and for what? Because some low life gangbanger wanna be's had to go out tagging!! I hope they get their asses fried!!!
Someone stop the train cause I wanna get off for a little while. Calgon take me away!!!!!!!!!!

Despite all of this chaos I have gotten a little scrapping done. I desperately need the down time to do more though, and unwind...destress!! Hopefully over this long weekend I will get that chance! But here are a few I have gotten done in the last 3 weeks!

The first two are using the Wenchd Graphix kit To A "T", fun fun kit to use, LOVE the colors!!! The next one was using the freebie for this month at 2 P's with one of the pics I took of Madi on her last day with us photo shoot, then one of my neice Mal..that girl is too funny! Then there is one of your's truly for a challenge, and finally one of my stepson Shaun, I used the Spellbound kit by Dawn InSkip for that one. Spellbound is so fun to use for those HP fan pics!!! *LOL*

Welcome to My World

YOU KNOW you live in the High Desert when...
... You actually get excited about snowboarding at Mt. High
... The people at La Casita know you by name
...Sidewalks are a luxury.
...You (or your neighbors) mow the weeds instead of the lawn.
...All the trees lean to one side cuz of the wind.
...Driving fifty miles to get some decent food/clothes/entertaiment isn't unusual at all.
...Closing the Cajon Pass won't stop anybody from getting out on a Friday.
...The slightest rain turns roads into rushing, muddy rivers.
...You're the only one driving down Main Street at 3am, and for some reason you still hit every red light.'ve learned to coexsist with potholes.
...its 75 degrees outside and your mom tells you to grab a sweater know that shoes hanging over a telephone wire means theres a meth house nearby. cant go to any store/restaurant/bar with out it feeling like a high school reunion
...Scandia/the bowling alley are your friday nights (or if your 21+ Mr. V's, the Marina Lounge, or Chili's are.) hang out at Del Taco
...when people usually ask you "where's that?"
...when a majority of parties are held in the middle of the desert
...when you're about to die of heat stroke in the summer, but freeze your ass off in the winter
...when your town goes bazirk over a new store/restaurant
...when you refer to traveling as "going down the hill." know that rivers don't HAVE to have water in them.'ve ever had to pull over your car to move a huge tumbleweed out of the road.
...Seeing the color green on a landscape shocks and confuses you.
... you pass by a Mexican restaurant at every street corner
... you didn't know that the construction of two-story buildings was possible
... "hanging out" constitutes meeting up at Starbucks
... a mall any bigger than Victor Valley Mall (which doesn't take much) excites you
...when telling people where you live, Las Vegas invariably becomes part of the explanation. (i.e. "Have you ever been to Vegas? Then you've passed through where I live.")
...when you know which town you're in by what side of the street your on(Bear Valley Road)
...You can make it down the cajon pass in 15min and to Victoria Gardens in 25.
...Your parents, and everyone you knows parents, commute to work.
...during the holidays it takes 30min to find a parking spot at Target or the Mall. don't know what to do with yourself when it starts raining're confused by the concept of clouds're somewhere else and confused cuz the speed limit sign is less than 55 mph, and you don't know how to drive less than 65 mph, cuz Bear Valley Rd/ Hwy 18/ Apple Valley Rd all have a speed limit higher than that! stick extra sweatshirts or shorts in your car, cuz you never know when it could get super hot or deathly cold
..... missing school for a snow day was a major event that year
...... 40 mph winds and sunny is considered a "nice day"
...... unless you live in SVL you have a dirt lot on at least one side of your house
..... you knew what I was referring to when I used the initials SVL
..... your unfairly associated with Barstow when trying to explain to people where your from
..... within the first 2 minutes of talking with somebody still in the desert you get a list of new shops/restaurants they are getting
..... unlike everywhere else in the country, the mexican help line is not in front of a home depot but some random park on the corner of Hesperia Rd. and Verde St.
...... you get excited whenever you are watching a Cuba Gooding Jr. movie so you can tell everyone that he went to Apple Valley High School

*L* So many of these things I can relate to!!!!

Arggggg, I am cutting back on caffeine and OMG can I tell it! Headache, jittery, jumpy....and OMG tired!....this sucks!! I did get a page done today though..would like to get another done, but don't think that is happening before Big Brother comes on *L* Can't miss my BB!!!

Using this months sponsor at TTS...Flaire Designs/Tropical Dream and the starfish are from Wenchd Graphix Hula Whoop kit. I love the beachy elements in this Hula Whoop kit!!

I've been set free!!!

By Blogger!! *L* My blog was unlocked today!! Woohooo! They decided I wasn't a 'spam' site! *DUH* I was going to be so upset if I lost all my stuff...seriously upset!! The only thing I can figure out is that I go to a lot of blogs looking for digital freebies and when I grab one I leave a comment for the blog owner. Maybe they saw all the comments I was leaving with my blog addy and decided I was spamming? *LOL* Dang, get shut down for leaving some gotta love that!

Jim and I have been recovering from that early morning Vegas run this week. Who knew that would wipe us out so bad! Doesn't help that the girls have been getting us up in the wee hours either. So we are declaring a sleep in Saturday AND a no work weekend! Just play!!!! I can go for that!

I have gotten a few more pages done so I will share those now :) The 2 paper pages were done using sponsor product from TTS for July (Around the Block) Egg-cellant and August (Karen Foster Designs) Unwanted Visitor. For Tide Pool I used our digital sponsor (Flaire Designs) for this month.

Check out my gallery there for more info on the items used on these pages, and while you are there check out our Grand Opening of the Digital Store!!! It will be opening next week!!

Be watching for pics of Madi's photo shoot from her last night here! *L* She wanted to do a photo shoot in one of the trees in our front yard and man did we get some great shots!! I will be posting a couple of those tomorrow along with some pics of my very cool sunflowers!!!

Home alone

Well Madi went back home yesterday. We got up at 4 and were out of here by 4:45 am! Yikes...that makes for a long day! *L*
I took her out shopping and we went to Cold Stone when I got off work. Then we took her out for chinese food..her fav!! Then when we got home she wanted to do a phto shoot! I was surprised that she wanted to do that, but we had a blast and took a ton of pics!! When my blog is unlocked...grrrr...I will post some of the pics we got! Oh and a pic of my sunflower with several flowers open on it! I have ever had a sunflower with more than one flower on it. It's awesome...sooo pretty!!
