Monday Morning...work work work

So, we had a productive weekend I think . We moved the kids computer downstairs, re-arranged our living room, did some small jobs that have been waiting for a while. Sean was able to get the truck fixed...the compressor for the air suspension system quit...we had only purchased it last October from Florida, so the defective one is on it's way back this morning. As long as they deem it'defective' i'll get my money back...cross your fingers...it was over $200

We have chosen a tub for our bathroom reno...and our local hardware store is giving us a deal on it :) which is always good.

Only 47 days until our trip...Sean and I are so excited...we feel like a couple of little kids Christmas morning LOL

well, getting ready for work, so I must go...back soon!

Rainy Sunday!

Woke up to rain, not heavy but steady...a good rain to water everything without destroying it

We went to friends last night for a few drinks...same friends we are going to Mexico with. The air bag suspension on our truck isn't working properly :( which is not a good thing. Not really sure what's wrong, but it's our only vehicle, which isn't a good thing. We were supposed to go grocery shopping so we'll see

Yesterday, after Reece and I got our rooms cleaned and organized, Sean headed to our main bathroom. It only has a spa tub, but no shower. We want to overhaul it, putting the shower in there. The shower right now is in our small bathroom in our bedroom. Since nothing seemed to be done right, we pulled the tub right out and sure enough, not put in properly. It wasn't braced right or insulated right. We aren't sure if we'll go with a spa tub...I'd love a claw tub! We need to price out tubs and check sizes. We might end up just putting the old tub back in for now. We are gonig to put a new floor in...it's wood right now but we are thinking ceramic tile maybe.

Anyhoot....hopefully Sean will figure out what's up with the truck...and hopefully it won't cost a fortune to fix :(

Have a great day!

Happy Saturday!

Just hanging out today, doing some cleaning, re-arranging of things in the house. Dh is helping me organize my scrap room, putting up some shelves etc...so while he's working, i'm surfing

Not alot planned for this weekend, grocery shopping which is good...makes the weekend go a bit slower when we relax!

Sean and I started going to a tanning salon...to get a bit of a tan before Mexico. I just have this thing about being stark white on a beach down south! (yeah, I know they say they aren't good for you, but neither is the sun... )

I took the most awesome pictures of a rainbow last night..it was a complete from one side to the other rainbow, so I have to see if I can stitch the pics together..I couldn't get back far enough to get the entire thing in one pic


Have a great day!!

Good Morning




Scrapped a few layouts lately, not as many as I'd like...but I've been spending more time with Sean and the kids instead of in my scraproom!


Here are a couple i've done
Reece scored her first goal in soccer last night...she had so many chances, then boom...one finally went in!!!!! The coach asked if we'd let her play on an all girls travelling team next year...OF COURSE!!!! He's only asking the 'good' players, so we were honoured!!
Off to work, later :)

Good Bye Blue Spruce

Here are a couple of shots of the tree, before and after. It's sad, but had to be done..it was so crowded and unhealthy. We do plan to plant a couple other smaller cedars in that spot.



ahhh....One more day of work to go

Well, the visitation was nice last night. Got a few hugs which is always good ....and nothing really had to be said. I feel really bad for Jim, her husband. He's been through so much in the last year since her diagnosis...i'm sure he'll be fine.

Reece had soccer tonight and OMG...she had a breakaway, nothing between her and the net but the goalie...she took the shot...and poof...not enough strength...SOOOOOO close to her first goal this year!!

Off to bed shortly, have to pick Sean up at 1am...and I will likely keep the truck to pick him up tomorrow night too. Jesse will need a ride home, and now since the ex's wife is being a &%$W( Jesse is no longer asking him for rides. Pretty sad really.

I have a layout I have to get done for a contest bonus...I have so many ideas...I must get them to paper. The deadline is Sunday, so i'm sure i'll be fine. Once I decide on pictures.

I think Sean and I might go shopping on Sunday , for a few new things for our trip :) I really don't have any 'nice' summer clothes. I don't even own a pair of capri's :( I told my friend last night, it's from years of working in a feed mill, you don't need nice clothes. BUT i'm changing that. I would love a nice sun dress..maybe even a couple skirts (WHAT!!!!!!) I've never wore skirts and dresses much, unless it was a wedding LOL I want to get a nice office job, so maybe if I change my overall appearance, it'll bring good luck!!!

Anyhoot...must run...bed time

Back soon :)

Sad evening :(

I am off to the funeral home to pay respects to a long time family friend. She was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a year ago, and it got the best of her on Sunday. I wish I knew what to say...'I'm Sorry' just seems corny at this point. I wish I didn't feel so uncomfortable at these but not much I can do about it I suppose

I tried to upload some photo's and layouts but the dial up connection I have is so aggravating...I'll try later :)

Happy July

I'm off to work, after having 5 days off. Man, it's tough to get up with that alarm. Tonight is wing night at the pub...can't wait!!!!

9 more weeks until we leave for Mexico..the only downside is that summer will be over when we leave, so I am not wishing for that, but I'm so excited!!!! I can't wait to take tons of pictures...who knows when we'll get to go away again

We've had some awesome weather the last couple of days....it's rainng today though, but the weekend is supposed to be amazing ...so that's a bonus!

I need to upload a few pics I took of the Jesse and Reece on the trampoline...it was so hot they put the sprinkler underneath it.

Ok, must run...have a super wonderful day!
