I'm here and I'm in! Put me down for 10 layouts please!
Love the Jake story. Well this summer we decided to adopt another dog and found a free mix on a Facebook garage sale site. We immediately fell in love. We got her shots and had it scheduled to get her fixed but we were heartbroken when she disappeared for 3 weeks. We put fliers up all around town, drove around (we live in the middle of nowhere) and even offered a $150 reward. Well, hubby heard a car and went outside to check and there was our dog and obviously very pregnant! So we had 6 puppies 2 weeks ago. They kept me up last night so I didn't get much sleep either but they are so cute!
Ok...so I am home now, and I had a marvy good time!! We scrapped right up to 7:00 pm. Then I had to leave. WE both hate that part...leaving.
BUT we get to do it again 2 weeks from now! YEA!
Now I have to clean my house and get things ready for a friend of mine. She is flying in from Colorado. We are going to scrap...becuz' she doesn't know how!!! Did I say, OMG!!! I get to teach someone how to scrap!!! I am so excited!
She will be staying with us for a few month's. Why? Well her psycho DH is one of those severe controlling AH and she has finally seen the light. He has degraded blamed her, beat her and left her homeless. I'd like to show him a thing or two. Like the business end of a my gun!! grrrrrrrr
Whew! Their I said it, and I feel much better now! Alright ladies, it's 3:30am here in Utah and I best be getting some sleep, since I have to take DH to his brain doctor tomorrow! hehe
we had thought someone took her and we are pretty sure they decided to return her when they found out she was having pups! My husband is so cute. he has been like a proud dad! he actually said the other night he never knew he could love puppies so much. He has told our daughter she could keep 2 and then the other night he said if we find out they are going to be a small breed of dog that we could keep 3! He's going to have a hard time parting with any of them. They are just too sweet! good thing we live on 70 acres so they have plenty of room to play!
Your hubby is so funny!! You are going to end with all of them!!
Quay, I am so happy to hear your friend finally go away. It's hard for them to do that, those AH can really get into their heads.
My morning was going pretty good until I got a call from the Doc's office cancelling appointment my son had. My son went into the Marines, he had a knee issue, got a general discharge, could go back. Now wants to go Air Force, needs doc to look at knee and give opinion. When I told the lady of the importance and why. She told me she could not guarantee that the doc would give a waiver. OMG!! I said to her WOW, I know that, do you think I'm an idiot? And a few other things. she tried to apologize, but it was an epic fail!!
Ok, I have vented twice. Thanks for letting me rant.
Yea we told on son to go Air Force, that's what husband was, but they just don't listen. I even went as far as to tell him over my dead body, no that didn't work either. God has a way of making sure we take the path when we let him.
Anne, I don't know your circumstances, so I will just wish you good luck and hope for the best for you.
I really need to stop get on the computer and get my chores done so I can scrap!!
Well, yes, thank you for the well wishes. I always love those.
No, your problems are NOT petty. Husbands -- ex and current alike -- should NEVER give so much grief. Whatever he did, it hurt you and that's not right. If they had smilies with shovels, I'd add those, too. Cuz, ya know, there's a ginormous pile of leaves in front of my house right now. Just sayin'....
And annoying doctor's office staff! Kim, I think you deserve a round of hugs, too! The ped's office staff loves to pre-diagnose my child when I call; get me in all sorts of alarm.
Quay, I'm also happy your friend is on her way to finding her footing again. Please give her a hug for me. Granted, I'm blessed with a good husband (not perfect, but good), but I've made the statement before that, if he ever were to lose his mind and lay a hand in anger, his first warning would be the loss of his... well... In the form of a euphemism, he wouldn't be making anyone a special blend of tea ever again.

Meh, short version of my circumstances (since it's part of my daily life; I'll just put it out there) -- stage 4 cancer. I've been fighting it since mid April, 2011. Other than all the nitty gritty; that basically means it's about as much hassle as a mosquito in the room. It's annoying; I have my down days but it's nothing that I can't get past, most of the time. I talk; I worry sometimes but I'll be hornswaggled if I'm going to let it win.
what kind of cancer? And thank you for all the hugs. My ex husband still hasn't paid my child support this month and since he just got out of the army no insurance so i might getting billed for westin's speech which $101 per visit. Not sure where I am going to come up with money for that. And christmas is coming up then Westin's birthday right after that
Ooohh, see?! That's a very valid concern! What kind of medical coverage are you eligible for? None through work, I take it?
It's certainly not one of the "glamorous" cancers. Hehe, I hesitate to say, but that's my issue to get over. Colorectal. It spread to my liver and lungs before it was found (April 1, 2011) and confirmed a few days later. The good news -- surgery removed the main tumor last February. Radiation made sure any tiny start-ups would be eliminated. During my radiation/chemo combo (see? I said I'd talk about it!) what was in my liver receded so much that they couldn't find it via scan last July; totally awesome. However, four additional spots appeared on my lungs; totally not.
Thanks everyone for the well wishes for my friend. I will tell her and I know she will cry, but a good cry!!
I'll fill you all in---my DH had a stroke August 4th of this year. He has recovered quite nicely but they have to keeps tabs now to make sure all is well. We got him to the hospital within an hour which gave them the time to put this magic drug in him and it helped him come back to normal. He has changed a bit his personality is a bit different, and he forgets things easier. But over all he is "normal" hehe
Ok I am off to shower (icky mental picture) and then off we go. I will be back to yickety yack later! Be good ladies...
