my hubby volunteered me to take my son's team pics. here's what i came up with. i used my new pse, with a combination of picnik and picasa to help me with the editing. now if only i could manipulate my camera more. i think it came out alright. hey it's much cheaper to do this rather than order from the regular company.
we went out this weekend with some friends to a salsa/merengue dance club. we went to arjon's we had so much fun dancing away....
on friday i also met up with some friends, gracie, beth & rhonda for lunch at blanco cafe. i miss rhonda being here in san anto, she's up in south carolina and came down to visit. we cuaght up, laughed, drank big red and ate good mexican food. she doesnt get much of that in sc.
we went to this cute mexican art shop next door and i bought some neat things. here are some pics from that.
it's here.... i've been on it for hours. i'm sure the time will pass when you can pry me off of it. k, now for updates:
-i attended the tally rally in temple, tx at Rockin R Retreats, had a blast -got lots of layouts to share -learned a new technique, sewing on layout -i have a massive wishlist now -met new friends irl! -got a new paper trimmer, the tonic -want to learn more from my friend MartyMar, kwim? wink*
now i'll be updating more often peeps, keep me in mind, you'll have to chk out this blog more often, stay tuned for more updates!
tweets later.... i must declare i am addicted! i did a layout about twittering not too long ago as well... i went tubing with some of my star sists's last weekend for the first time in like ten years....that was a blast although we had some trouble. we had our cooler flip over and lose all our beverages. damnit! we all had some river rock injuries. but all in all i'd say we did have a blast. here's a few pre-tubing pics. can't take my valuable camera on that river. we had a water proof camera that got sucked in on our drop/fall/ sucked in, whateva you wanna call it! another damnit!
i've been a busy bee, ok, sorta! i know i've been twittering like crazy! that's fo sho! i've scrapped a little here and there. i've been spending some much needed time with my hubby, he's done with coaching so since april we've been keeping busy. not to mention i've been hanging with one of my star sis' alot more. so i've been outta the net world. i'm just slowly counting down the school days. 8 more days with kiddos & 9 days left in my contract. let's see where the path of life takes me next.........
i finally made the cute cupcake bites i wanted to make a few weeks ago. but being terribly sick with a respiratory virus, i didn't ever completely finish them. my hubby took em' to school half done and they got eaten up anyhow! :) i found the site bakerella off of gina's blog. they are just so adorable i had to give em a try myself! i made another batch and finished them this time, so here ya go....
my computer was taking for ever to load any websites while i was on the net! turns out something was up with the cable modem so i've been off the net! i'd get on briefly when it was not a busy time of day, but other than that i wouldn't even get a "ready" signal. it sucked!!!! but now i'm back in the bizz! and i'm trying to learn more about posting through my phone....let's see how that goes...
i backed up on my pics from nov 2007....ahhh i know, i know i hadn't done it, i had been lazy about it! & you know i got a virus not too long ago & luckily was able to retrieve the pics so...whew! i stayed on my computer from 5:30-11:30 last night. but you know what, i got it DONE!
i also cleaned up my area a lil' and even got a layout done in the process! yeah me! i actually rearranged a little. i needed to get that little card table outta my room. i have this little computer desk that really doesn't go with my "decor", (ha if i have a "decor"!) but i fell like i can work in here again. and now with my computer working, even betta!
I said I'd do some stuff scrap related over at Tallyscrapper. It's called Scrappy April. I have half my desk clean. & i haven't really been able to get busy crafting much. I really wish i didn't work! shoot, i wish i had more money to buy scrappy stuff!
I've been busy! I ran/walked the Race for the Cure on Saturday, along with 30,000 other San Antonians. It was a good experience that I will have to do again! This time I hope C can join me. He had to coach J's t-ball game that morning. And that afternoon he had a soccer game too! That boy is all sporty, I often wonder if his love for sports will continue? Time will tell.
I got one of the side effects from my antibiotic. A horrible side effect. I had to do something quick to get that straighten out. Too bad that evening J went with my parents and we could of gone out. But this incident had us turn in early that evening. boo. I hate not being able to take advantage of the night off of mommy duties!
well off i go to start the work week. good thing is that i'm off on friday. i hope to get some scrappy stuff in that day. but who knows, we'll probably end up at sea world! just like this sunday, j loves watching the dolphin show with "the crazy man". he got to see him after the show....
this is day 4 of being sick!!! bummer. total bummer. but i have to motivate myself. i want to post a pic of what my scrappy space looks like now and maybe, just maybe i can make it much messier by the end of the day by scrapping something? what do you think? can i do it? maybe, maybe not because i feel like i really just need to go lay down and rest. but if it's posted here in blog land maybe i can get a layout done by friday! i have to stick to it, since i posted it here!
oh & my daddy too! they bought me this cute white shelf for my scrap room. would you believe we were driving to the zoo with j and while going the long way around because moms doesn't like to drive on the highway, we saw some like rummage sale on the side of the road. i saw this shelf from the street and ask them to pull over. you know my a$$ was broke and my parents told me to ask how much. the lady said $25 and we offered $15 she said $20 we said $18! what a steal! i painted it black and here ya go....... a pretty new shelf
i've been sick with a respiratory infection. i feel horrible, my body aches, i've been having sweating outbursts, then later on in the day i'll be having chills. i hate this. i just wanna get better. the medicine i'm taking only helps a little and i can't miss too many more days of work, they'll start to deduct my paycheck! ugh!
life: i've been going to a chiropractor lately. i'm hoping to get my back & neck better. i had a minor fender bender a day before v-day and the neck & back pain started immediately. i went to my general pract. but i just got ibuprofen 800 & muscle relaxers, which masked the pain for a lil' while. so now i'm getting popped and pulled hoping it'll help. we'll have to see. in the past week, i have felt an improvement. scrapping: i got in some good scrapping not to long ago. well actually it was our spring break so i went to a wed. crop at a lss and was able to get in some lo's. i'll have to take pics and upload. i also found a cute shelf at a rummage sale. i just painted it black today. i'm hoping it'll help free up some space in my armoire. i'll take pics of that too! friends: so good to hear that Jess's baby Gywneth is finally here! i still owe here a "good" baby gift! i got you girl. worried about a few of my friends. that's been one of the reason's i've been away. i've had to comfort a very close friend of mine through some hard times. downers: my kitchen floor is still not fixed. the past 3 months have been really hard financially. someone, shall remain nameless for fear of hurting feelings, did some bad budgeting and our "extra" money has vanished. in jan. my water heater broke, my car needed over $1,000 in repairs, had an accident the very next day in my hubby's car, another $500 deductible, in which another $200 had to come outta our pockets because some psycho jumped on my car windshield and traumatized myself and J-yes just 4 yrs. old. which was a different accident from feb.'s positives: my hubby and i are going to do Komen's Race for the Cure on April 4th. i'm hoping to teach summer school which will help with the extra things we need to get done. i'm going to another TallyRally in July. i went to austin for lobby day to speak with state legislators regarding educational issues. i'm hoping to go to another house of delegates meeting in houston to represent our local union.
