Soooooo it feels good to be back!! I have missed all of you guys! I hope the newbies come back I would like to get to know them too!!

Hey I bought me a new car!!!!
It is a 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe. It only had 16,000 miles on it. I am so excited! I bought the most warranty I could buy. I have no one that knows how to fix this kind of car. So now I am going to be a lot more comfortable due to the fact my other needed a lot of repairs. WOot WOot!!

All rights ladies I am off to bed tomorrow is my last day here at my bff's scrapping. So I better get some sleep so I can scrap tomorrow. I will give you 300 extra points if you tell us what the last thing you bought?

305 for buy challenge - A cappuccino and sugar donut at local bakery $2.32 (I didn't even break open the piggy bank). I'll need all the sugar I can get to keep up with everyone today lol!

Just saw Daily 2. Will all challenges be on page 1?

I'll be glad to help with week 3 challenges. They will be posted night before since I don't have internet access until I get home from work.

Hello ladies!

Sorry flaked out last month. I had to regroup myself. I felt outta sorts and realized I was going into a deep state of depression. I am working through it though. Still have some changes going on with my health as well. But for the good, although it's going to take some work.

I am going to take it easy this month and make a small goal so I don't overwhelm myself while I work on myself. Just have to figure out how small of a goal I will be doing.

Hope all is well. See already some awesome work being done. Will be back soon.

Poor Quay! They are just treating you like a punching bag!!
Glad Mom is going to be helping you out, and we are here for a shoulder for ya as well!

Julie, sorry your not feeling well. Hope you feel well soon and get that scrappy time in!

My day is a 5:
I woke up after tossing and turning from a dream that I could not make out, but I do know it was troubling me. My ankle is very sore today, but my muscle in my calve is the worst part. I keep getting charley horses in it. So bad it's crippling me. I tried sitting today and relaxing by trying to add some pictures into some mini chipboard albums I created. Then I got really frustrated and which ones to add to them. I wanted to put so many different ones in there and it was getting overwhelming! Getting overwhelmed is not what I need on my plate today or in the near future with having these issues with severe anxiety! So I gave up on that for now. Then my son visited me. I love seeing him and miss him so. He has psychological disorders and he worries me to death everyday. It's a relief when I see him. I can tell a lot by looking at his precious face. Then he started talking "his twisted talk" and it agitated my anxiety. I kindly and swiftly changed the subject without him realizing it just so it wouldn't set him off and me too for that matter. I am so proud of him this past year though. He has come as far as he can and staying on a good path "for him". It was a long struggle with him the last couple years with his illness, but about this time last year was the worst ever. I thank God for him and this small miracle every day!
Then I struggled to cook dinner and washed dishes and then it was R&R with hubby. Now he's up relaxing watching TV before he turns in for the night to go to work tomorrow and I am here with my girls and will also watch some TV shortly.


On a good note... I get my brace tomorrow. I get it fitted tomorrow and if it fits well than I will be monitored with it over the next couple months. Maybe back to work then, depending on what/how he signs me off. Cannot wait for some kind of normalcy other than this kind.

BB in a bit.

Good luck with the pup Julie!

Up starting my day sorta earlier than usual. I will be leaving shortly to get my brace for my ankle. Praying the rest of the day walking in my new foot will not be too stressful. I know it will be somewhat stressful, it's expected, but I dread the repercussion of my body feeling it. So here I go to start getting ready.

Be back later this afternoon. Have a great day everyone

Good luck with the pup Julie!

Up starting my day sorta earlier than usual. I will be leaving shortly to get my brace for my ankle. Praying the rest of the day walking in my new foot will not be too stressful. I know it will be somewhat stressful, it's expected, but I dread the repercussion of my body feeling it. So here I go to start getting ready.

Be back later this afternoon. Have a great day everyone


Karen- You have been thru' the ringer too!! And talk about beating one up...Your poor foot! Well my dear just know I am limping right along side you!

Soooooo Good Morning my fellow addicts!!! And how are we all today? I'm doing ok so far! lol I had to get up early today to take my new car to the service garage for maintenance...well that is what the email said. SO off I drive to the dealer's service garage only to find out the email was retarded, and they had just changed the oil before I bought it. Brother!!! SO they said I was good to go and off I went, back home. It was not a total bust tho' I got to drive in the fast lane on the freeway today! WOo HOo I wouldn't dare in my old car!! So I was excited about that!!

Now I am going to cut out some autumn leaves and corn stalks on my cricut for our church bulletin. It is going to be cute! I will take pic's. So off I go, I will have this page up all day so any questions I am here to answer!!

Sooooooo get cracken' ladies!!! I wanna see some chatter and some scrappin here! hehe

Thank you Quay! I am home wearing my addition to my new foot. It's not like the one they originally showed me it would be. So far it feels great. A little awkward but and will take some getting used to but feels great considering how I have been feeling. It's going to take a tag team to put it on for a while till I get used to putting it on and off. Will have to take a picture of it later and shoe my new fashion statement off. LOL
I voiced my concern about how strenuous it was for me to just have the lift put in the shoe and concerned how my body will handle this new adjustment. So they told me to gradually work my way into it by one hour today, two hours tomorrow, three hours the next and so on to five hours. Then wear it for the majority of the day there after so my body won't have such a shock.

I also learned why my foot(ankle) is titled inward and my foot faces out and won't go straight. It was fused that way on purpose! It is fused that way to help with the walking process as where a non-fused ankle would have freedom to do as normalcy and a fused ankle won't so this will help the fused ankle in motion of walking.

I am tired now though, so I think I will be eating a light lunch and then take a well needed nap. See everyone shortly!

I have checked out this thread before and again this month. I love the high energy here but find keeping track of the the points a little daunting, if not down right scary!! But still I want to give it a try.
I do have a couple of questions.
Can I count the two pages already done this month?

Most of my pages will be done at the end of month, is there time to add them with the points before the challenge closes for the month? In other words, my last day of the crop is Sept 29, that gives me one day before the end of the month. I can upload to my gallery but not sure if I can get all the points added up by then.

Can you point me to a thread or link where is explains how to update your signature?

OK, here goes, I'm in!

Welcome!! I'm sorry I have seen you around the site before but forget your name!!

Yes the two layouts that you have done this month can be counted. Anything that was posted to the gallery starting on the first of each month can be counted.

Also if you do any cards, tags, mini albums, projects etc. you can count those points up as well. They just don't count towards your goal for the month (with the exception of mini albums - you count so many pages equal to one page) towards your goal.


Again, welcome!!

Thanks you for the warm welcome today! This is the year I committed to doing scrap book pages so there won't be many cards and no mini or alterable items. I have no place to put alterables and no one that wants any.

Karen, how is your ankle after walking in that boot all day?

Thanks for asking Sharon.
It was great at first, till about three or four hours into wearing it. Then my body started shifting all over the place. It certainly will take some getting used to. Gonna take some meds tonight for sure to help ease this pain and uncomfortableness.
