Let Fall Begin

There is a cold front that has made it's way to Nevada.  I'm soo excited!!  Unfortunately though it brought the wind with it.  I can handle just about any weather, but if there's's just miserable.  Oh well, I guess I shouldn't complain since it is cool out.

Everyone is almost healthy and happy around here.  Loney is dealing with a staph infection again.  I've got a slight sore throat from the wind and weather change.  Luckily the kids are doing well...for now.  Melody went to bed at 8:00 last night and is still asleep this morning.  It's 9:00 already.  Maybe she's growing and is sleeping it off.   It's a nice change though.

I've been a super slacker in the layout making this past month.  Between my computer being out, and just running around everywhere, I just haven't gotten around to making some.  I'm hoping that changes this week though.  I so enjoy creating.

Up and Running

Woot! My computer is fixed. Turns out the power supply went out. Loney tells me though that when the power supply goes out to watch for other things to mess up as well. It just wreaks havoc on your computer. Cross your fingers that everything is hunky dory.

Now onto my news. This past month I've been a Guest CT member for Krystal Hartley. Well one of her permanent CT members PM'd me last week asking me to join her CT using her designs. So I now design pages for mle Card. Look for new layouts using her designs soon.

I also left people hanging as to which Digital SLR camera I was going to purchase. Well, I decided on the Canon EOS Rebel XS.  

Oh My Goodness...can I just say I am in LOVE!!!  I don't know why I waited so long to get one.  I'm looking forward to learning all the neat tricks I can do and taking better pictures.  Loney and the kids are going to be sick of me in no time because of all the pictures I'll be taking.  LOL

Have you ever had one of those days...

Where everything falls into place just so. Well, mine was kind of like that today. I played with the kids, they didn't fight (much), got an unexpected PM(more on that later), and am just glad I'm feeling better.

Busy day tomorrow shopping with Loney to exchange my motherboard, do a little birthday shopping for Melody, and pick up a Digital SLR camera! I am so stoked about that last one. I'm hoping to find some good tutorials/practice tips to hone my skills. Stay tuned for my hit and miss adventures.

Not the best.....

I've been so miserable the last couple of days. Strange pains surfacing that make it difficult to lay down, sit down, stand up, bend over, just all around miserable. I'm hoping to get better because my house is falling apart with needing to be cleaned, and laundry need to get finished too.

I want fall to come. Just tired of the heat, and so looking forward to the Holidays. Fist and foremost is planning Melody's birthday. Hmm....what to do.....

On top of not feeling good, my computer is still out of commission. Such a bummer to not have access to my own stuff. Hopefully I'll be up and running this weekend.

Computer Issues

So once again my computer is on the fritz. We thought it was the Hard Drive, so we got me a new one. I'm happy to have more space (1.5 terabyte) but unfortunately it wasn't the issue. Swapped memory sticks with Loney and the computer worked for almost 2 weeks. Now it looks like the graphics card on my motherboard isn't working. Soo not wanting this drama. I'd much rather be on the computer scrapping. Oh well, hopefully we'll get me a new graphics card soon.

I've been so proud of Jordan. He's doing great in school, but I worry about him with math. I think he'll get it eventually, but it's still a little early to tell. Other then that he's thriving in Kindergarten.

Melody is enjoying time with mom without Jordan. Though she thoroughly enjoys waiting for Jordan's bus to come and runs up to give him a hug when he steps off. I need to get a picture of the two of them. It's soo sweet.

One thing with my computer not working is that I'm getting more sleep. Only an hour or so more, but it's making a difference. When I finally get it back up and running, I really need to stick to getting to bed no later then midnight. We'll see how that works out.

I've got a lot to plan in the next couple of weeks. My baby is turning 3, so I've got to get down when, where, and what for her party. October 7th will be here before I know it.

Ho Hum

Been an exhausting week. Between the kids, housework, and just not feeling very perky I'm just plum tired. Perhaps I should go to bed at a decent time, then my day might be better. But then again...maybe not.

The weather is finally cooling off. There's a nice cool breeze and I'm ecstatic! Though it has been a mild summer, I'm ready for fall to make it's grand entrance..all 2 weeks of it. LOL

I created a layout inspired by Emilie Ahern's Project Project she's hosting in honor of Project Runway. Although I don't watch the show faithfully, I've enjoyed seeing what she has cooked up for the challenges. I decided to try my hand at week 4. Here's a link to the challenge: Project Project wk. 4

Here's my layout:

I know I've been a blogging slacker, but I hope to get better about it. If nothing else, I'll post my layouts I've been creating...what few I've done...or just post to say hey! It all depends on how I'm feeling.

I woke up this morning with some major stomach issues. I haven't been out of the house all day, and just have felt really crappy. Unfortunately Jordan has felt the same way. Poor kid. I'm feeling quite a bit better tonight, but not out of the woods yet. I just hope it's a 24 hour bug and will be gone tomorrow. Guess we'll find out.

I wanted to post some pictures I took from Jordan's school open house. His teacher is really nice, and he and Nathan are in the same room. I guess they don't even acknowledge each other unless one is in trouble. Too funny. He's taken to going to school all day very well. Can't wait to see how much he grows during the year.

These were the only one's in the classroom who showed up.
