Naughty Dog-

Jan 21, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: My family stuff

So now that we have some ground, we sometimes let Diasy play outside for a few minutes, in the driveway, while on the leash. Only when she really wants to stay out.

She can’t be in the yard yet, cause her place is not ready, and we still ahve several feet of snow.

So this afternoon I tied her up, and I went inside to start lunch.

8 minutes later………………………Came out to see this-



Look at that face? If she could talk I think she would say “Oops! Did I do that?”

She immediately sat down, and gave me this pathetic face-only a doggy mom could love.


The perfect blend

Oh after getting my Crafty Secrets Coffee & Tea set, I had to dust off my beloved MFT Hot Stuff set!

I LOVE this set. I recently had a card with it published in the Dec/Jan issue of Paper Trends.

The *ONLY* problem with being on design teams is, you get these awesome sets you LOVE, you get to use them briefly before a release, then its on to the next set. NOT COMPLAINING! So, when you REALLY love a set it stinks when you don’t have more time to use the “oldies but goodies”.

Kim is only going to be releasing one mini set in February, since she is busy getting ready for CHA,  and has given us free reign to PLAY with our faves instead. I am getting an early start :D.

So wait till you get enabled to buy some older sets (wink)!

I was so happy with this card/layout.

I used some YUMMY Martha Stewart paper (and ribbon), and away I went. I used my sewing machine to attach the patterned layer, onto the embossed floral layer (embossed paper came that way). The colors are blush blossom, and pretty in pink. A nice monochromatic combination.

Its pretty simple, but lovely all the same.

Things are going pretty well here. I always appreciate the warm thoughts 😀

Tomorrow will be TORTURE the kids day!

My way of getting back at them for driving me insane the past week-KIDDING!!!

I made them each an appointment at my most FAVORITE place-the DENTIST!!! I don’t know WHO it will hurt worse, me for having to deal with 3 kids at the dentist, or them for having their first cleaning.

YIKES! I get an anxiety attack just thinking about it. If you follow this blog-you will understand. I hate the dentist. I hope to get my kids in and have a good experience.

Alexa can’t be touched. She has Chemo Wednesday, so I guess a week of travel AND torture. Her counts have to be REALLY good to go to the dentist, for risk of infection, plus due to her heart surgery she always requires antibiotics. They will however PEEK in her mouth to make sure things look OK till we are safe to get her a cleaning. People with Down Syndrome are prone to dental issue’s :C Little enamel, and overcrowding are a big issue-add chemo and you have the perfect cocktail for cavities no matter what you do. I will get Alexa’s teeth capped when she has all her adult teeth in, and will make sure she has a nice mouth of teeth if it kills me.

Due to our hectic health schedule this will be Noah’s FIRST visit and he is 5! BAD MOMMY! OK I honestly don’t have that much guilt because I can’t. We had priorities, and that was Alexa’s health first. We had all we could juggle. I can put my guilty sign on, but it will do no good. I have done my BEST. That is all one can do.

I really think we as mother’s wear that sign all too often, and we have to cut ourselves some slack time to time.

It’s OK to not be PERFECT! Who is really?

OK that is enough of my crazy banter.

Hope you have a great day. I have tons to do.

Don’t I always?

Till tomorrow-
