Remember when life was simple? You didn't have a care in the world? You were invisible! You see something on tv and you think to yourself thank god that will never happen to me! Then all of a sudden with a blink of an eye your world changes forever. What takes just a matter of seconds to undo will take years and heart ache to fix. Kids are you most precious thing in the world. You want to keep them safe and let no one at them. You teach them right from wrong. You tell them don't do this, don't do that, and never talk to strangers, don't eat that bug. You wonder to yourself have I taught them enough? Did I do my job as a parent? You just never know. ... Sorry for the rambling many of the things that are going through my head right now. ...

It was a great weekend. I got some spring cleaning done and still had time to play lots. Went to see Shrek. Not as funny as the first 2 but it was cute. I decided to join an online crop at the last minute and that ended up being a really good thing. It is a new forum just starting out http://www.cropalatte.net/forums I found them on myspace.com They are a great group of people and lots of talent on there. Wish me luck I also applied for their design team. I figure if you don't try you won't know....right? I got 5 layouts done and 2 cards. You should see the mess I have on my kitchen table. It will be fun tonight cleaning it up. NOT! LOL Here is my favorite layout from the weekend. I just got this paper from www.comingupdaisies.com it is the basic grey pheobie....LOVE it. Thanks Jeri for getting it to me sooo fast.

And I am sooo excited. I think my scrappin mojo is coming back. Probably due to the fact that I went through 10 magazines last night. Yep I took the jump and started taking out the stuff that I like. It is amazing how much room clears up when you toss them away. I have noticed though that I only like a few things out of each magazine, so it will be nice to have a smaller book. So I can't wait to get the rest of those cleaned out. So I found the martha stewart site today while surfing the net and I still don't know what to make of her new line. I was watching her show last night (thank you tivo) and I realized her style of scrappin is very basic it is kinda like going back in time. If you haven't seen it take a look http://www.marthastewartcrafts.com/index.php?v=msc_projects&sort=-price Let me know what you think.

Yes, this morning dh and I decided that we are going to see Shrek3 by ourselves without the daughter. She is not coming down this weekend so we are on our own. So we are trying to decide when is the best time to go...I can't wait to see it.
Well I have started my spring cleaning. I hate to clean but I am hoping that making myself get rid of things will simplfy my life. I am doing one small project a day to not feel so overwhelming. I keep looking at my scraptable and just walking away. I am taking Michelle's advise and going through all my scrapbook magazines and taking out the things I like then getting rid of the rest of the magazine. I am hoping to put a book together with just ideas. I think that is such a great idea. But we will see how much we get accomplished before vacation. I guess it is a good time to clean cause I have been in such a scrap funk lately and I haven't done a thing. DH still has to fix my printer...I love that printer!
Boy I am rambling today...I guess I better get to work. ARGH

We had such a nice weekend. We went to Oroville to see the hometown parade and to visit family for mother's day. (I will post some pictures later) Everytime I go home I realize how much a miss the small town feel. I saw my old boss and his wife (WOW how 7 years changes you) and I saw my bestfriend and her boyfriend, and I saw friends from high school. They shut down the whole downtown area and had a huge car show, chili cook off, craft fair, and carnvial. We spend hours just walking around. It was great to just hang out with my parents. But now back to reality. Back at work this morning. Ahh Monday Monday.........
