~Monthly Challenge~

This monthly challenge is similar to a book of me. Use this format example to set up a book of July and what you did all month. Take pictures, and keep records and tell stories of your events and daily happenings. Make up your own format or look one up. It doesn't matter. Also make a minimum of 5 LO's to show what you did in July. Be creative and show us who you are by writing and taking photo's all month long. Have fun with this and who knows you might want to make a years worth of special books just like this one!!
6000 pts.

An extra 2000 pts. If you make this into an album or book!

Lyn, good luck! My surgery is on the second also for the woman stuff. I cannot wait. I have been in so much pain this past week and getting worse. I feel like I am in labor.

Good luck! Will be thinking of you and praying.

Thanks Quay! I just printed over 700 pics! So you will hopefully see some pages this month! We had a great time and I've never been in better shape! Our apartment was on the top floor (no elevator) and we lived at the bottom of a giant hill. I have never felt so relaxed. We slept in, went to the beach almost every day, and then just walked around town in the evenings. We loved it so much we talked about moving there someday but I don't know if I can handle the heat and humidity. I also didn't realize how much I missed our beautiful country home on 70 acres. The sky here is so much bluer, the grass greener and the cooler air has been a nice welcome home! I missed my AC!

Woot!! Shopping trip! LOL
Congrats all winners!

I am determined to scrap today. Was going to clean up my scrap room, but why not mess it up some more before I have my surgery tomorrow and then clean it up since I will spend the first couple days afterwards with down time. Cannot wait to feel better. This woman ******** that we are cursed with has really taken over me! I have never felt so horrible, believe me when I say this........ labor was easier than this!

So off to PT today and then some scrappy time, and then some down time before tomorrow.

So hoping my scrap loot I won comes today! That would make everything better! hehe

Quay, you poor thing. Dealing with so much! Keeping you in prayers and thoughts always.

I am cramping an awful lot today. Thank goodness for meds, although I hate to be medicated.
Want to scrap today, was my intentions today but may have to put it off and lay down for a while. hmm, maybe my scrap goodies I won will come in today and make my whole day much brighter!

Loving the dailies Teresa! Good work, I actually have some of them I just finished while prepping for surgery day. Fun thing is, they ended up incorporating with your dailies! Yay!

Time for me to rest...... will check in a bit.

Wow I don't know how you guys find time to scrap with all you have going on! Prayers for all that you all heal quickly and life smoothes out for ya! Well I started scrapping yesterday for the first time in almost 2 months and feel a bit intimidated by my 700+ recent pics. But as soon as I get a few done I'm sure ill have my groove back. Sitting around today soaking up some sun and wishing we had our pool up this year but no time so instead we are playing in sprinkler! I love summer and my iPad mini so I can be online outside!

hello ladies. been pretty busy lately trying to get back to normal life after our little trip. Feeling a bit perturbed this evening, my niece told me she was going to come with her family to have 4th picnic with us and to watch fireworks. Gave her info on what all was going on around town today if she wanted to take the boys to it. Got a message from her early in the day saying they were running late and I told her what time we were going to start getting things together. She said fine. 2 hours after that time had passed I get a message from her that they had been here in town, then decided it was too late after the time I said we would be getting things ready so they went out to eat at a restaurant instead. We went through the extra time and expense to make things to include them. So then I messaged to ask if they were coming back to watch the fireworks with us, you can see them incredibly from our house, and they could get some dessert.. I never heard back from her. See a message posted on her facebook that they did come back to town, were within blocks from our house, to watch the fireworks then stopped off for ice cream on the way home. All the while my 3 yr old kept asking when her cousin was going to get here, where were her boys for her to play with. I think that irritates me more than anything that my daughter was let down. I am not going to let people do that to her. Grrrr

So, regardless to say I cant sleep now. Going back through the posts trying to find all the daily challenges so I can get caught up in here too. Looks like everyone has been super busy.

Okay, end of my rant now.

When I'm up tomorrow, I will use my bff's computer and get the front page updated. And if the winners will e-mail there emails-(my address book is at home) then I can get those gift certificate's out to y'all. First thing OK? I am sorry it took this long. Please forgive me!

Good Morning Quay!
Enjoy your visit with your BFF!
Hubby went back to work today. Love having him home, but he's a boob around the holidays. He don't have any umph in him these days, boo! Aside that, he's been "overly" cautious with me since my surgery on tuesday and I am going nuts with him trailing behind me and every 5 minutes "how are you feeling". LOL, love him but I need the breathing room! Then he makes me do "nothing" all day and honestly that made for a worse day for me. Hate to be tied down more than need be!

Today my second born is 22 years old! The first I actually feel old ever. Goodness, where the time has gone. Remember waking up about this hour and nesting. Scrubbing floors on my hands and knees, dusting and yada yada. My neighbor came downstairs for our morning ritual of hello's and she got panicky.... me I hadn't a clue at the time. I felt "normal". I stood up and my water broke. She called the ambulance and I went onto the hospital... about two hours later they sent me home saying I could take another couple days I was only 2cm dilated. My Aunt picked me up, took me to my birthing hospital and a few hours later my baby boy was born.
I always play with him saying he was just angry he didn't get to see the beautiful fireworks and wanted to show off! LOL.
To this day his favorite part of the week is the fireworks, not really his birthday! LOL

BJ, sorry about your family stuff. My family is a lot like that. One of the reasons my holidays are such a drag. If I were closer to ya's I woulda hung out with ya!

Gonna see what trouble I can get into around the house today..... maybe some scrapping! Definitely some stalking of the postman/ups man for my goodies! LOL
