So so happy....

Yesterday I finally got my splinter out! Yeah, I know that sounds like I'm a total weiner but I don't even care. That was seriously the meaniest splinter/chunk of log ever!! Back last Sunday when I was helping Jerry do some tree trimming work, I grabbed a limb & somehow shoved a massive chunk of tree into my leg - DEEP! I dug & dug & dug on it & couldn't ever get it out & it got really infected & gross looking. Well then Friday I had a doctor's appointment set up (yea - totally weiner-ish) but then didn't even get seen (a whole nother gripe there!) so I was really determined to get it out myself just because I was on not going back to the doctor's office. This is what finally came out...... (can't you see what a chunk of tree that is??) And I may still have a crater of a hole left in my knee but BOY does it feel better!

Besides that, Jim's now talking like he's going to get himself a place of his own. With the way Jerry's butt-head has been acting lately, I'm more than happy for them to just be roommates together. I don't think I've got them quite convinced of that yet but I can work on it. :)

And here's my new hair! (even though it's a bad pic since it wasn't really fixed & I was all sweaty from the nature walk) I wanted to try something new, so I found something I liked in a magazine & went with it. It's not quite like the pic was but I do like it & really like the bangs.

Today we took a little trip down to Roaring River. We did the nature walk (or let's just say PART of the nature walk) & then went wading down in the creek. We really had a good time. Between Jim goofing off & Dylan's scaredy squeals, we were all laughing so hard we were crying. Here's some of my favorite pics from the day.

Dorky Jerry...

Sicko Jim...

All of us...

Oh but then get this... somebody ripped off a plastic window corner thingy off my car while we were there. Don't ask me why - I can't imagine anyone stealing this because they needed one for their Rendevzous. I'm just guessing it was someone just being evil & stupid. Now... to find where I order one of those and it better not cost much!

Hopefully this week goes by quickly. We've now got 12 days left in this apartment so I need to get lots of packing done!

If only I could stay on this roll.....

I'd be a scrappin' machine. :) I finally decided to take the plunge & scrap something 8 1/2 x 11 & WHOAAA! does that feel good! I have gotten so many layouts done & am pretty pleased with most of them. Who knew 8 1/2 x 11 was so fun??!!??

And this one? I was really beginning to think I couldn't do it. I did it for the challenge over at Scrapncircle. It was to create a different shaped layout that normal square/rectangle, include one pic, include lots of words, & include something from the office on it. The shape was what really was stumping me but when I finally decided on it, the other came together a little easier.

Now it's clean up time & then it's off to bed!

Since I'm already up...

I might as well blog. :)

Well things will be changing soon. We've decided to switch apartments & sign a year lease over in Marionville. I'm not super thrilled but I know I didn't want to sign a year lease here. At least when we move over there we'll have a bigger apartment, the kids will have a playground to play at, & it'll be $100 less a month. Plus that will be good so we can actually be saving money. So the end of this month is going to be B-U-S-Y! I've talked Jim and dad into helping so maybe things can go quicker that way!

And here's a little of my scrappy creations:

Those were a couple I've done for the contest over at ScrapNCircle. I doubt I'll get very far but it's fun getting challenged - especially with things I don't normally use!

And those from my DT package from Scraplove. Suzanne totally rocks these kits! Sketch ideas for my 2 DT layouts were from Chris Greiser at Sketch Me if You Can (VERY cool sketches there!).

Now I'm tired so I'm heading to bed. :)
