It's really frustrating....

to feel NO ability to be creative at all. I cannot bring myself to stitch. I can't even think about scrapbooking. I need to finish gifts and cards, and there's just no way I can get them finished in time. I haven't taken a picture in months. I absoutely HATE feeling like this :(

Week in my life-Monday & Tuesday

So here we've been going with the Week In My Life challenge, and it's been a challenge that's for sure! I'm combining 2 days into one since I had to get into bed early last night and didn't have time to edit and resize pictures. I must confess I'm *REALLY* struggling with Blogger and inserting pictures. Not sure how to fix this or even where to start. Okay, on to the pictures (if I manage it!)!!


I cut my stepson's hair and was really struck by the curls that are so cute (but unmanageable on a 22 year old!) just laying on my bathroom floor.

My now 14 year old daughter doing what she's been doing best all summer! She's a gamer much like her mother! When did she grow up???

Very yummy chicken ceasar salads for dinner on Monday. Best part? I didn't have to cook! My wonderful husband did it all!


This was the hardest thing for me to do! I HATE taking pictures of myself, or even being in pictures! This didn't come out the best, but it'll do!!

Dunkin Donuts is a nearly daily stop on my way to work! I'm a total glazed stick addict and love getting a cherry coolatta or a Tropicana orange coolatta!

Finally, my princess kitty cat. This is Serenity, she's just over a year old, and she has got me wrapped around her delicate little paw. She's sitting by my chair waiting for me to stop what I'm doing and pet her. Which of course it is my entire reason for existing right?

I think this challenge is definitely making me look at all parts of my life and how some get emphasized in one day, and then not in another. It's an eye opener, and I just might learn something about myself this week!

Until tomorrow!

Lots of time elapsed--New focus!

Well lordy I've not been here in forever! I need to get more diligent in posting! One of my best friends, Crystal, has convinced me to do a weekly scrapping challenge. A week in my life, shown in pictures and words. Not sure how successful this is going to be, but I aim to give it a shot. I'm also supposed to take a self portrait for this apparently, not sure how well that's going to go! I don't like pictures taken of me without my face on! I know I know, I hide behind my makeup, but I honestly think I look better, not 'painted'.

Another reason I've not been here in a long time is I'm working full time now!! I got a job as a customer service rep for a medical billing company and I love it! I started there in March, and it's a job I'm good at and I know it. Working full time has been a difficult adjustment but I am adjusting. The kiddo starts high school in a few weeks, and I probably will share a few pictures from it. My little girl is growing up and I just do not have a clue how that happened. She's beautiful and amazing and she's taller than I am!!!

Alright, I'll get some pics up later today most likely!

Not a whole lot of crafting :(

I haven't been able to do any crafty things lately, due to a severe twitch in my right eye. Taken by itself, this twitch wouldn't be such a big deal, but coupled with the severe exhaustion I've been experiencing lately, it leads me to believe I'm having what is referred to as an 'exacerbation' or a flare up of my MS. I'm praying fervently that I don't get the eye pain that lets me know I've got an attack of optic neuritis. I've lost enough vision in that eye, thank you very much.

I also think I'm sort of down because my 40th birthday is rapidly approaching. I'm not 'depressed' but am taking this time to take stock of my life, where I am, where I want to be. I also think I'd be in a much better space if my mother were still alive. It really still hurts that she's gone, and the days that I forget, and pick up the phone to call and tell her something--well those still feel like a knife ripping at me.

Anyways... I'm praying this eye twitch goes away and SOON. I've nearly lost patience with the whole deal!!

Hope you all are having a great day!
