Life Can Be Sooo Crazy!

So those of you who know me know I have pretty much stayed at home since I have had my girls. I have done some in home daycare here and there , taught preschool while my middle one was in my class. But pretty much stayed at home. Now my youngest is in 2nd grade and I am an emotional wreck. I am 35 and have no idea what I want to do when I grow up ( not sure if I ever will). Where did life go... I am sad my girls aren't little ones anymore. I am trying to celebrate them growing up but the truth is.. it sucks. For me atleast it does. I need to find something I enjoy doing because after all I am growin up! I have to pretend to work and do the adult stuff. So I got this opportunity to apply for a police officer gig but I have to do a physical test!!! AHHHHHH I found out about it about 3 weeks ago and have been working my tail off since. When I was a little pony tail wearing kid, if you asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would have said either an artist or a sharp shooter. hehehe So, I read Annie Oakley. This Saturday is the test, I am sweatin bullets. I just don't know if I can do it. I am a religious woman, I believe in God. And I always say my prayers at night and I'll bet God is about sick of hearing about this test! hahahaha Is asking for super human strength so wrong?!!
Anyways.. thanks for listening about my little plop of BS. Hope you have a good day. And if you do have little ones yelling at you for a snack or can we watch Dora again.. embrace it. Soon they will be talking about boys and periods and stuff.

Deadliest Catch Crew

This was some fun that we had a couple weeks ago. We went to our local seafood join and met with the crew from Deadliest Catch , now for those of you whom don't catch the show is a show all about fishing and crabbing in the deep sea. I am not much of a tv girl myself but if I do watch it, this is what I watch. Anywho not sure what the stare with Natalie ( my youngest girl) and Sig ( the Captain of the Northwestern ) was about but it was funny.

sorry I have had so many trouble with our internet. It's so frustrating trying to load pictures and get booted off each time. We finally got a new carrier so hopefully it will be a little more speedy.. guess that's what happens when you live in the sticks...

Halloween Book

So I just finished my Halloween ( I know it's early!) book for Pine Cone Press' catalog. I love Halloween and the excitement in the childrens eyes. It's so magical for them, it's so fun to see. I believe it is my 2nd fav holiday. Suppose it also has to do with me never growing up..... some things never change. Hope you like it, and thanks for lookin!

My Minds Eye Paper Bag book

Soooooo I just adore "my guy" at My Minds Eye company... every time I talk to Tommy he is so kind to me and I just get the biggest kick out of this guy. Besides that he sends me these samples that are the best stuff and he totally pulls out all the stops ( not sure what that really means.. kinda sounds a bit kinky but... ehhhhh). He is now engaged so I am making him a paper bag book to show some of the kissy face pictures off in. I hope he likes it. Thanks to Tommy for ALL the FABULOUSSSS goodies he sends me! I am not quite done with all the pages but this is it so far... thanks for lookin
