Crap, Runny Noses, Razor Blades, and more Crap

First off....I feel like crap,been sick for 3 days and stayed home from work today. I like staying home from work..just not while being sick. My nose is red and raw from running all over the place, I just hate it when your asleep and your nostril has filled up all the way to the top and starts spilling over the edge..there goes anything resembling sleep, cuz now I'm running to the bathroom for tissue before I drown in my own snot. My throat feels like some little creature had a pumpkin carving contest in there and if I have to sneeze......well, I'm in a whole lot of trouble. My nose, my throat, and if I have to pee.......oh boy, not pretty.........and it hurts. So, now that I'm done whining about how lousy I feel.............

Let's move on to more crap!!! Which is where the above picture comes into play!! I've been in a scrapbooking slump lately, the creativity has gone down the toliet...hehee...crap,toliet..I'm sure you can appreciate that analogy. This picture, along with some others I will try to post (remember I'm really new to this and am figuring it out as I's huge that I at least found the picture I was looking for) is from a trip to the zoo with my sis and her family, my parents and my daughter. I'm not a professional photographer by any means......heck, I'm not a professional anything, but I love to dink around with alot of things, which makes me only so-so in those so called things I love to dink around with. So, we are at the zoo...taking pictures, looking at animals, and it seems like the animals are a little camera posing, smiling, look straight at the camera, nope none of that....instead I get this.

and this OH so lovely image...

and, after all my attempts at photographing the animals, so I could run home and do a really cute scrapbook layout, I was slightly disappointed with the uncooperative nature of these animals. Then the thought came that I would just do a butt layout. Sure, why not? I have pictures of furry butts, nasty butts, patterned butts, have a baby giraffe butt, just missed the poopy butt, (the elephant poo picture from above). So, there ya have it. A Butt layout!!

That solved that creative slump!! And just cuz I love butt pictures so much I'll leave you with my most favorite one yet....

Yay Me!!

I found my way back to my blog....and figured how to post again. Yay!!

I guess I could put some facts and background info on who the heck I am, where I'm coming from and where I'm heading. If no one cares, at least I can check back and make sure I'm still heading in the right direction.

First, I am a single white female..(creepy movie, I'm definately not creepy...weird yes, creepy no), I am 37..(ouch,hate to admit that), I have two kids; Jordan is 16, Ashlie is 12. I was married for 11 yrs to a LVMPD officer, been single for 6 years and have been involved with a retired NYPD officer for about 3 months (yep, I can't seem to get away from the cops ;) I am a diet coke addict, an avid reader, scrapbooker, love to paint, decorate, shop....LOVE to shop. Love to travel, love junk food..(that's why I can't get rid of these last 10 lbs!!) Want to take photography classes and cooking classes (hate to cook..blech)

My near future looks bright!!! Really bright, like shining, sparkling, bling type of bright....boyfriend told me he just picked up engagement ring!!! HOLY CRAP!!! I'm excited...really..he's really sure of himself too.....sure that I will say yes (he's real confident) I'm sure I will say yes too.....but, the fact that we haven't met in real life yet....that's just a small hurdle right??? We met (gasp) online...So, boyfriend lives in CT and somehow we have fallen in love........crazy, yep I know..I keep thinkin the straightjacket and nice padded white room is on the way. The only thing left to do is meet and because of surgery stuff he won't be able to come visit for a few more weeks..and as long as "in real life" is as good as on the phone...I'm there..hook, line and sinker!!

Well I'm off, running late, gotta get myself to church and do some heavy duty prayin and, until the next time I can find my way back here....C-Ya later.

Welcome to the World of Blogging!

Why, I ask myself am I doing this blogging thing...honestly, I don't have a good answer. It just seems like the thing to do, (and No, if everyone was jumping off a cliff, I wouldn't just go along with the crowd!) Everyone is blogging these days and I'm thinking this is going to be a huge challenge because I'm so computer illiterate. I guess we'll see if I continue or throw my hands in the air and say what the heck was I thinkin...

Maybe this will be a good way for family and friends to check in and see what's going on in my life. Maybe no one cares, no matter..I guess it's just a way for me to write things down, keep track of events, thoughts, and daily goings on.

Well, I've made it this first post!! Hopefully there will be a second one!!
