Casting Day

WELL...Yesterday was casting day! I wish it was for a movie or something that would make me really rich but it was for Nate's arm. He actually did really good at the doctor's office. When they cut the temporary cast off he just kept holding his arm in the air. I'm sure that it felt funny to him. Plus he had a bunch of lint all over his arm and I bet it was itchy! So the specialist said that as long as nothing happens to his arm (like he finishes breaking it further) it will heal just fine. He has to wear it for 3 weeks (which is Sept. 19th)! You know that day can't come quick enough for me. The doctor said he bets Nate is the kind of boy that is back to see him at 5 & 8! I asked him why he would Jinx me like that?!? I let Tori sign it first when we got home. She wrote a big ol' long sentence on it. Saying how good it looked and how much she loves him. His look in this picture is just absolutely priceless. Like, "Are you done yet?" He has already hit her in the head with it a couple of times also! Today is my gpa's 79th birthday. So tonight we will go out there for dinner and to hang out. Come home, baths, bed and start over again tomorrow. Although, the shop is closed tomorrow and I am not working (making that a 4 day weekend for me) so excited about that! I hope to have ALL of the boxes unpacked before I come back to work on Tuesday. Wish me luck!!

Weekend Madness :)~

This has been an extremely busy weekend for me! I know it has for most of you Ganza*Goin*Girls also! Let's start with Friday night! I rushed to Walmart after work to pick up a few things before Rick went to work. I know that he never has Skoal when he needs it so being the support the habit wife that I am I bought one for him! When I told the lady what I needed she asked me to see my ID! only have to be 18 to buy Tobacco products? Was I suprised? To say the least! My natural response (not meaning to come across rude or anything) was, "REALLY?" She said I just need to be sure. So you might as well know, I will be 32 in October. So was I excited? OH YEAH!!! Saturday was busy with Chase's game and then to the house to try and unpack more boxes for the rest of the day and night. Sunday I got up and went to Church. Got home ate lunch changed clothes and the kids, went to the Eldorado Walmart and then came home. That was at 5:15pm! We no more got our groceries unpacked and I was just starting supper and I hear Nate let out this blood curdling cry! I run in to see what the matter was and he had taken all of the cushions off of the couch so that he could climb up on the arm part and jump and fly like Superman! Although, he missed his landing and hit the floor. So I am at that critical 10 second window, "Do I take him to the hospital or do I see how the evening goes?" After going to the hospital and arriving there at 6:15 we find out several X-Ray's later we find out that both bones in his right arm are broken. So they put a temporary cast on it and we go back on Wednesday to see the Ortho surgeon to see when they will cast it! Then he wears it for 2-3 weeks. His 2nd birthday mind you is in just 2 weeks. I am sure that this is just the beginning of many trips to the hospital! But...I didn't manage to get one layout done this weekend! I was wanting to get something done since I couldn't go to Ganza!

Bunk Beds...anyone?

Since we have just moved and the basement isn't finished in the house we are living in the boys are sharing a room! Naturally 2 beds takes up lots of space so I am thinking of putting them in bunkbeds. Is this a good idea? Probably not but oh well! So if anyone knows of anyone locally that might be getting rid of some, please let me know. So speaking of the whole moving situation we had to re-look at some of our financial stuff today and if I didn't think I could be anymore stressed than I already was then I thought wrong. That couple of hours of sleep I was getting??? Yeah right...probably right out the door. But on a positive note...I hope that all of you Ganza*Goin*Girls have a rockin' time this weekend. I will so miss you and be thinking of the fun you are having without me!

Back to School Picture

OK...Here is a better picture! Tell me what you think!!

dragging... I am totally dragging today! Nate has been getting up by 6:00 AM for the last several mornings. I don't know what is up with that but that boy needs to be sleeping until at least 8:00 am. Especially since I don't go to bed until late! Last night was the first night in literally weeks that I didn't have something planned, somewhere to be or something going on! I almost didn't know what to do with myself. After supper I went in and just sat and watched TV with my kiddos for awhile. Spy Kids 3! Not my fav of course but it was spending time with my babies and doing NOTHING else! I set for an hour and was starting to get really drowsy. SO we started with the picking up, cleaning up the supper dishes and baths and bedtime! I was asked today to make birthday cakes for a little boys 1st birthday party. It's one of the guys I work with...his son. He is allergic to milk and some dairy. That means I have to make a big regular cake for everyone at the party and then a little get messy cake that is allergen free for him. I hope it doesn't suck. The theme is Curious George. Also...a good friend of mine called and told me that she is getting married and they are getting married in November. And BTW I don't like or know how to do any of this wedding stuff so can you just help me plan the whole thing and start telling me where to start and what I need to do? She knows me well because she said, "I know you can't tell people NO, so if you don't have time just let me know!" Like I would say NO to that! Also, Nate's birthday is in 2 1/2 weeks. It kind of sneeked up on me! I need to think of a theme. That way I can decide how to make his b-day cake. Any ideas from anyone? It's not like he's really into anything. He will be 2! But I don't want something way baby either. Or character wise! OK well, I am at work and should probably do something work related. HEE HEE!!!

OK so I am officially doing better! Not that I was really doing bad but I finally did a scrapbook page last night (the first one in like 2 weeks) because I have been moving, unpacking, soccer, getting in to the school mode and everything else! And it was great! I can't wait to locate all my stuff and get back into the swing of things. Scrapfunattic put a sketch challenge on their blog last week (8/13) and I finally got it done! A week later, but it's done! And it is a back to school page so hopefully I won't fall to far behind! I have been thinking of taking that organization class at Scrapfunattic and it is making me think of everything that needs to be organized in my house. I am downsizing so I am using Summer's rule..."If I haven't used it or worn it in the last 6 months it's gotta go!" This is a great time to do it because I am unpacking boxes. Can you say garage sale?? Oh yeah, I sure need to have one! Anyway, here's that page I was telling you about!

Black Toes!?!

NO...not Black Crowes...Black Toes! Although the Black Crowes are cool too!! So...yesterday we finally closed on the house and everything is at the new house and is a complete disaster so I am sure I will be unpacking forever! Since I have been totally whatever with the whole house thing, I decided that if I was going to get through the day that I needed to do something for myself. So after dropping off Tori at school yesterday morning I went to have my toes painted. It's nice to have someone else paint them for a change and she only charges me $5.00 to do it! Which I could buy a whole bottle of nail polish for but ya' know!!! So I went with Black (for my mood) with white flowers. And let me just tell ya' I'm lovin' the black polish. Something I might have only thought of for Halloween and my husband asked me if I was going Gothic and my Aunt let me know that she really didn't like them but guess what???!!! I DO! As a matter of fact I am going to have to get me an OPI bottle of this stuff! To wear year round!

ok, so i haven't blogged in almost a week but that doesn't mean I haven't had something to say! If you know me very well at all then you know that I am a busy person. But I swear this last week, through this coming weekend is going to be the busiest of my life! We moved this weekend and that was one huge mess. I literally have boxes everywhere and I can't stand having a path from one room to the next. So starting Monday we had soccer practice plus trying to go to the other house and pack my scrapbook stuff. That is such a pain the butt. My darling Summer came over to try and help my huge mess make it to boxes but this is the worst thing to pack ever! She is the best help ever. She is really good at coming over and saying, "Ok...where do you want to start?" I give her the deer in the headlights look and she takes over. She also says I have a problem!?! And after trying to pack it...I believe it! Everything else can literally be thrown in a box but NOT my scrapbook stuff. It's like China. I am so not an organized scrapbooker and I have SOOO much stuff I don't know what I have. I am wondering if it wouldn't help me to take an organization class. Because I have bought so much organization stuff but it's just setting. Last night was back to school night, school started today, soccer practice again tonight, back to the other house to try and finish my scrapbook stuff, close on the house tomorrow afternoon, 1st soccer game on Saturday morning and oh yeah, somewhere I have to locate my clothes in all of our boxes. Does it ever end????????

Altered Address Book

My cousin is leaving for College soon and I wanted to give her an address book so that she would have family and friends at her finger tips. I also added the local Pizza Hut & Applebees so she could easily order take out! I found this SpongeBob Address Book at Target! It was the perfect size (about 4 x 61/2) so it would fit in her purse. This isn't really the look I wanted so after tearing, cutting, ripping and sanding...this was the final product. She absolutely loved it so that made it worth the while.

This is the before!!
