A Little Catching Up

Hmmmm...first day of school today for 3 of 4. They all seemed to like it! Poor Taylor got teases by her teacher for thinking she is mean! Traven has a nutty teacher. Caleb thinks the bus driver is "pretty horrible"! Other than that, no complaints. :0) I did get a picture of each as they were heading out the door, but they are on hubsters camera still. So, I'll post them later.

Found 4 kittens under my porch Friday evening. Managed to catch them all. Caught mama...what a bitch...yesterday evening. They are cute as hell, but we aren't fond of cats. I am trying to find someone/somewhere to take them where they won't be put down. No luck so far, and the mama is very wild!

Rant time. I am glad that a lot of people in my life feel that I am the best person to go to during one of life's crisis. I am glad that they think that I can help. However, I have more on my plate right now than I can choke down, and it's all starting to come back up!! I am only one person. I have things that I need/want to do for me and my young people and my house. Sometimes I just need to breathe. Everyone seems to need me right now....I have been playing therapist/doctor/go-between/shoulder-to-cry-on/bitch filer pretty much constantly. It is starting to not only make me mentally tired, but physically as well.

Scrapping?! What's that?? I think I have forgotten what most of my scrap stuff looks like. It sucks! I want to be creative. I want to be artsy. Just too much other stuff going on.

My baby starts pre-k next Tuesday! :0( As if it's not hard enough to deal with, he actually likes it and wants to go!!! WTH?! lol He's growing up so fast!

My hubsters has been home for almost a month now, and he soooo needs to leave again already!! lol He is driving me nuts!!

I guess that's all for now.

I want you to know...

Well, I made it to round 2 of the Treasured Hunt over at Treasured Scrapbooking!! I am super happy about that, but sad that a dear friend didn't move on.
We are on our second challenge, and this is my entry...

The journaling says, "I want you to know that when you sing, it makes my heart smile!" Yeah, I know...the pictures suck!! I couldn't get a good picture to save my life! lol

I picked the hubsters up from the airport last night at 11:35pm. He's home for a while before he starts training and range qualifying to get ready for the big year! He's snoring on the sofa as we speak!! lol

As of right now, my hubsters leaving for a year isn't the only big change that will be happenening in my life in the next few months. My "baby" sister joined the Army and is giving me legal guardianship of my soon to be 1 year old niece. She leaves in January for bootcamp...who knows what will follow. Right now I could have her from 8 months to 2 years. So, I will be a single mother to 5 young people soon....ages 1,4,7,10,and 12. I think and hope that it will all turn out just fine!!

So, the SC Tally Rally is coming up in about 2 and 1/2 months!!! Can you say "excited"??!! My hubsters thinks I'm lacking in the brainage department....lol. He says, "I can understand following sports, but scrapbooking?!" He just doesn't get it!

Anywho, I'm out! Hope everyone is enjoying what's left of summer!! Ciao!!
