Ok so here are a few pics of my halloween decorations. I know it doesnt look scary during the day although the birds do still freak us out when we first walk out--I forget we put them out there--haha. I still have alot of decorations to put up but some i cant do til that day--like the black light, strobe light and the fogger. It will look scary that night and I will be sure to take some pics then.
Well I finally took my buddies advice (txrnc) to try picasa when I upload my scrap pages---ok ok it does make a world of difference when you go to upload them--finally the color is going to look like it does irl. I had been putting this off but now I see the error of my ways. I am not promising that I will do it ALL the time but I know when I can I will use it.
Today I did really good and got up and did my workout which btw after not working out for like 3 days kicked my butt. My legs are a little sore but nothing like before. I am going to give myself another week of 2 miles and then try to bump it up to 3--we will see I am not pushing myself to fast because I want to stick with it and I know myself if I think I am defeated then I wont continue but I am stoked because I am going on 3 weeks of consecutive working out!!! Just gotta keep it up now.
I have a really good schedule this week I only work on thru and fri--they are 12's but it shouldn't be too bad.
What else oh yeah I got some really cute pics of alyssa today but I need to get them printed out and also I am going to take the kids this weekend to the pumpkin patch--we do this every year it is funny looking back at those old pics--Gosh they grow up sooo fast. I was just thinking about when ralphie was a baby wow he is 19 now!! time flies.
Well I think thats it --oh yeah someone I won't say names reminded me that I needed to keep my blog up and yet she is slacking!!!! tsk tsk!!

Yeah my fav time of year is here--I know alot of people dont like halloween but I DO!! I got my decorations out and started putting them out, of course gil and ralphie had to help me because honestly I think if I went on the roof I would fall--hehe anyway so far about 70% of my stuff is up and my idea about the birds is looking pretty good. Once everything is up i will take some pics and share them here. I also have been doing the decorations in the house too---cant wait for you to see my body in spider web----ooooooh scaaarrryyy--haha love it. I havent had a chance to scrap lately just been reorganizing my little scrappy area. I bought a new little plastic drawer holder thing at walmart so I had to move things around a bit. I have accumulated sooooo much stuff lately but I have been doing good and not buying anything especially since veronica told me not to go to big lots because she is getting me goodies for my birthday---so I havent but hopefully tomorrow I plan on going my michaels who knows maybe I will find some deals but I dont ever hold my breath if it is meant to be it will happen. That is how God's plan works and I leave it up to him to do as he sees fit!

Hmmm what else gosh have you ever noticed how after it has rained for several days and the weather is starting to change how many ants there are in the yard--ugh! we put medicine on like ant hills today--poor kids they couldnt go play in the backyard because of this also my poor bongo I dont want him getting bitten.

oh yeah wanted to give a big shout out to my hubby today because he was doing our yard and noticed our new neighbors were working on theirs too but they didnt have a weed eater and the very much needed to have some edging done sooooo gil being awesome as he is he asked me should I go over and ask them if they want me to edge for them? I told him don't ask just go and do it for them I am sure they would appreciate it--so he did --wasn't that nice?? yep I know its a good thing.
Still hanging in there working out and trying to not stop hoping to get more days in this coming week my schedule at work was very weird it was like work 1 then off then work 2 then off then work 1--not a very fun schedule. Anyway thats it for now--Hope everyone is doing good.

Good night have sweet dreams and a blessed day! praise god and be thankful for all his blessings!

down time

well work the last two days have sucked!! it was soooo busy and ugh anyway tomorrow i'm off so plan is to scrap scrap scrap--hehe if I can I am sure that it wont go that easy but we will see. Lets see whats been going on well not sore anymore and I did work thru it going to work out again tomorrow oh yeah I went to have my annual exam at work and yeah I lost weight from the last time I was there. also we are getting a treadmill so yeah more incentive to keep working out --gotta keep it up especially if we do decide to have another baby. Not sure if I mentioned it here or not but gil wants to have another baby I am still not 100% sure yes or no but I agreed to pray on it and discuss it after the new year. My thinking about the working out is well first of all I need to get healthier and second if we do decide to have another baby I need to lose some weight prior to because I am always diabetic during my pregnancies. Anyway we will see when time passess.

What else is going on--oh yeah so for anyone who doesnt know please go check out my friend txrnc's blog because she is published. http://www.blogger.com/profile/08752602899782702924 go check her out. I am glad that I dropped out of so many challenges it is a relief to not worry about leaving love. I am really enjoying joining the football related threads--that is really alot of fun. I am having fun with the fantasy football league I am in with some scrappy friends. I have been doing really good about not shopping--I really need to use up all the stuff I already have. I honestly think scrappy stuff is like rabbits it just keeps multiplying?? how does that happen--hehe I guess all the good deals been getting lately. I am trying not to purchase too much but if it is a good deal well how can you pass it up--but to keep up with that I really need to use alot of it up.

well I think that is it for now-- I am sure I am forgetting alot of things I wanted to share on here but truth is I am sleep and tired so going to get off for now. Have a good night everyone!! Sweet dreams!

ok well it has been like forever since I have been on here --hmm not sure why but I am back and going to try again--I know --to blog more often. Let's see whats been going on--well work has been busy lots and lots of prego's with the flu so that is keeping us on our toes. School is going good just have to light a fire under my butt to keep up with my assignments. The kids are doing good they are going to school and behaving. marina was having some trouble with school but getting better. Gaby is doing good in volleyball and getting better at it too. Ralphie ugh we need to get him a new vehicle but honestly I need to come into a little money to make that happen but all is good God has his plan and i give it up to him.

So let me tell you what is going on. I decided that I needed to start working out and with my faith I know I can do it. Soooooo I started working out yesterday and today and guess what I CANT EVEN WALK NOW!! I am sooooo sore but i know it is a good sore and that I am going to benefit in the long run. I know if I keep working out it is only going to help me be healthy and thats what is important especially for my kids. but right now I am hurting alot--gil just keeps laughing at me--dork . I made the whole house smell like icy hot because I had to rub down my thighs. wish me luck for tomorrow.--hehe

I have been scrapping but not a whole bunch like before. I realized that although I love joining all the challenges and it did keep me motivitated it started to feel like work because it was hard to keep up with all the comments. I am much happier now and back to enjoying doing my pages. thats what I was starting to miss about scrapping I didnt get to just enjoy doing them without all the pressure. I am a happy scrapper again. Anyway just wanted to let you all know I am still here and plan on coming back more often than before. I really do miss blogging for me it is therapy because it is a journal for me to say what I want --ok well gotta go and thanks to my buddy txrnc for the push!
