Happy Halloween!

Wow.......can someone tell me where October went??? It's just crazy how fast the time goes. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween! Meg decided she wanted to be a Hippie this year. She looks so cute in her costume! She is going to go trick or treating tonight with her friend Dalton. We're all meeting up and sending our kids to get us candy! ha ha!!!! :-) It's so weird always teach your kids to NOT take candy from strangers, and here we go sending them to their doors!! Crazy isn't it?? We usually just hit the houses we know. I've already called dibs on all the twix bars!! heehee!! Megan doesn't eat alot of candy but it's fun to go and get it! I usually dress up too but not feeling it this year. With my back hurting lately I am lucky to get dressed so I didn't even think about getting a costume.
It's so beautiful out today! Nice and sunny (and warmer! ) Gotta love it!

well better be off! I'll try and post pix soon!

I'm baaack!

Long time no post!! Been busy w/ work, swim stuff, stressful situations, and reading the Twilight series!! Awesome books by the way!! I want to see the movie now!! I haven't been online much at all, or done any scrapbooking either! (books must be good huh?)
Just thought I'd post to say yes I am still here!!! lol

We did end up having to put Jake to sleep. That was really hard but he was so sick & the vet said he was not going to get better. I miss him alot.

Well sorry so short, but I have alot to do today!

swim meet & a raccoon

well the kid now has her first swim meet under her belt....or guess I should say swim cap!! :-) It was a very long day, 10 hours!!! She did great though!! We are so proud of her! No melt downs or fusses, she was a trooper. I on the other hand was getting quite antsy towards the last few events! lol So a 10 hr meet and a 2 hr drive home ( w/ a stop at Dairy Queen of coarse!). when we got there we had a meeting for the "first time parents " of swimmers. The lady said " we have a saying for us swim parents.....if you only have one day left to live spend it at a swim meet cause those days last forever!"
heeheee........oh how little we knew when we heard that!!

After we were home and settled in I noticed we had a visitor on the back porch. The fattest raccoon I have ever seen!! I went in the kitchen and I first thought it was one of our dogs then I saw him stand up and look in at me and I kinda screamed just a little cause it took me by surprise. he just stood there looking at me. DH comes in there followed by the DD and it started walking around the porch. DH started to go outside and I said " you aren't going out there are you?" like it was some horror movie! LOL Actually I was thinking more along the lines of RV or that movie with John Candy w/ the bat? The Great Outdoors I think it was. But he assured me he was going out and to stay inside. So he grabbed his flashlight and out he went. ( I am assuming the flashlight was in case they wanted to play shadow puppets???) and came in saying it must have took off. I'm just glad we dont have bears. (I hear they really hate making shadow puppets.)

Jake's tests

well we have found out that our dog is diabetic! We have to give him an insulin shot every day now. I didn't even know dogs could be diabetic?? Turns out , yes they can! We have to take him back next week for a check up. We'll have to see if this works. Poor doggie!

feeling nostalgic

I'm really missing my Mom ALOT I decided I would make some pages of her. Doesn't keep me from crying or miss her less. But somehow in a small way it makes me feel better. It's my therapy. I have to have someplace to "go" when I am feeling like this. A place that's quiet and I can focus on creating something. I don't know how else to explain it. Thought I would share my layout.

my caramel apple angel!

Just want to say a BIG THANKS to Debbi for bringing me a delicious Pease's caramel apple yesterday after reading my blog!! I guess I was sounding desperate? LOL That was so sweet and made my day! I am so blessed to have such wonderful people in my life. Big hugs to all my peeps!!

I am so glad it's FRIDAY!! woohoo! Busy weekend ahead but that's ok. Getting new carpet in the kiddo's room tomorrow. Oh and a new dresser and new flashy bright curtains. her room is going to look like a gypsy tent! LOL!!! I'll get pics to share!!

Well I am off to look at some digi scrappin stuff before I head back to work. Have an awesome weekend!!!

stress, bunnies,and hearing aides

Good morning! Or at least it's morning!! LOL I am a little stressed with work, but hey, I'm alive and kicking. Just need to destress a bit.
I still don't have a caramel apple, but I'll be OK!! :-)
I wanted to share a website with you. It's my friend Denise's. She makes yummy smelling candles and cute crafts!!
Brown Bunny Patch

Got a busy day today. After work gotta take our dog Jake to the vet. He's not looking so good. Poor baby! He's really getting scrawny and just looks like he might blow away in this Fall wind. He's getting older (he's 11) and with all his problems (seizures) I'm concerned about him. And Sadie is going deaf! Have you seen the commercials on TV for this hearing loss device, where if you wear it you can hear the TV better and even listen to your neighbors across the street??? (( I wonder if Betty has one??? heehee) . ANYWAY, Scott was saying she needs a doggie hearing aide and I suggested we buy one of those, that way she can keep up and know what ALL the b*tches in the neighborhood are up to!! ha ha!! yep, I crack myself up! C'mon, some days humor is the only thing that keeps me from curling up in the fetal position and rocking myself to sleep!

anyway, gotta head to work so HOP (heehee) on over to the Brown Bunny Patch and look at all the purdies!

and somebunny get me a caramel apple already!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

yay! It's Fall!

I absolutely love this time of year! The changing colors of the leaves, the pumpkins, the chilly breeze. Not to mention the weenie roasts ( can't forget the marshmallows too!! yummy) , snuggling up together under a warm blanket , fall festivals with crafts and caramel apples, hayrides, and Halloween. So much to do!! Ok maybe the fall weather today has me feeling a wee bit giddy! It's not like I am skipping through my yard eating a caramel apple and humming show tunes. Although...................
nope, dammit I don't have any caramel apples! Maybe tomorrow. ha ha.
ok anyway, where was I?? Oh yes babbling in my giddiness. :-) Unfortunate for me I have to go back to work in like 15 minutes. So gotta cut the babble short!
M has her first swim meet coming up. She is so nervous but looking forward to it. (wonder if they sell caramel apples there???)
Ok better get going. I have to go laugh at myself on before going back to work. So funny. Thanks Tina for getting me going on that!! We are such dorks!
So, thanks for checking in w/ us and have a great Fall day!!!
