That was close$

I totally spaced today. Hubbster came home and we were snuggling on the couch and all of a sudden I jumped up and yelled OMG!! You'd have thought a bug crawled up my butt & bit me! I suddenly remembered that I had an eye appt. I looked at the time and I was supposed to be there in 15 min. Oh crap!

My mom must have forgotten too because she was supposed to give me a ride. So, I'm calling all over the place trying to find my mother. I finally got her on the phone, she was in the shower. I literally 10 minutes to get there (they allowed 10 min grace time). She picked me up with 6 minutes to spare. I barely made it.

Phew! Now that that is over. I got a new Rx for new glasses, it barely changed. I've had the same glasses for like 7 yrs now and they are all messed up. Scratched lens and the nose pads are broken so they were tearing up the inside of my nose, especially when it is hot out and my nose sweats.

I got 2 pairs for $149, regular frames for everyday and a pair or Rx sunglasses from Sears. I have to go back in a week to try them on and make sure they fit. I will be so happy to get rid of these old buggers.

Happy Monday!$

Or is it? I have a love/hate relationship with Mondays. I hate them because I have to take the kid to school an hour early and it takes me a few hours to function in the morning, especially when I am recooperating from a weekend alone with kids. Alone with kids... contradiciting but somehow it makes sense. I love them because I only have to walk down to the school once and all the kids come home together. And there's more quiet time for me to clean, yay! *sarcasm*

Today, I have the lovely task of finding a yellow shirt that isn't completely unflattering and black jeans or a skirt or something for a race we are working in 2 wks. This is not easy. I'm hoping I can get away with a black or white top and a yellow cami underneath. Much easier to find and looks better on.

Anyway, I best get going.. I have to leave to take the kid to school in 45 minutes. Have a great day!

So Excited!$

I just bought myself the EA Active for $9.98 with free shipping from Amazon. It was one of the Gold Deals, so it was marked down for like an hour or whatever the time limit was.. I got on with like 2 minutes to spare. I have been saving up Amazon gift cards for this from Swagbucks (a search & win search engine) and I had like $35 in gift card codes and then I just paid the balance.

This thing looks and sounds SO cool, I can't wait for it to get here! It has all sorts of fun stuff like Inline Skating and Cardio Dance. Much more involved than the Wii Fit but it also has games that use the balance board so that is a huge bonus.

Tattoo Crazy $

I've been thinking long and hard about what I wanted for my next tattoo and after careful planning and research I thought I had come to a final idea on my design. Well, after talking to a friend about it.. it was stuck in my head and the more I kept thinking about it, the more I wanted something different. All I knew I wanted was some type of flower with 2 hummngbirds as the main image and cherry blossom filler.

I thought I had settled on Coral (trumpet) Honeysuckle, since it is a major hummingbird attractor.  Now, I'm leaning toward purple orchids and I think that this is definate. I think the purple will go well with the soft pink cherry blossoms and the bright colors of the hummingbirds. The type of hummingbird I am looking at is the Ruby Throated Hummingbird. It is a gorgeous green color with a ruby colored patch on the throat, hence the name 'Ruby Throated'.:D

This one is going on my right arm, from the shoulder down to  the middle of my arm.. maybe a little lower so when I wear a tee shirt the flowers will peek through. I also want it to slightly branch off from the shoulder onto my chest. You can understand now why I wanted a slightly bigger flower at the top of the shoulder.

I am really excited about this tattoo.. hopefully, I don't change my mind again in the next 5 months LOL!

Nice & Quiet $

I just dropped off Greyson at school. We had a rough start this morning and almost didn't go. I am not feeling so great but I knew if I kept him home, I'd feel worse so off we went. Thank god for nice people! One of the other moms of his classmates, who I met recently was kind enough to pick us up on  the way and bring me back home.

I have so much to do and all I want to do right now is nap lol. Poor Momma. I think I am going to make myself some lunch and go lay down. I am sure I will have more to report later on once the kids get home:D

Back to Basics $

As you can see, I am no longer designing digiscrap supplies but I am going to come back to blogging. If I happen to get a bug up my butt, I may offer up free or cheap alphas because I really do love doing alphas. I will still be scrapping, I hope. I haven't felt like doing much of that lately either.

My youngest started Kindergarten this year so I have a little more free time to write a little something each day. I am back on the weight loss train and I am doing really well. I am down 19.5 pounds so far but I have a lot more to go.

Anyway, I just wanted to post a little something incase someone I know stumbles across this and isn't left wondering what the heck they missed! I hope everyone enjoys the new blog and please excuse the dust while I set everything up. Thanks for visiting!
