Our shower is ALMOST done.
yes, i know i think i said ONE week, its been like 3.
grout needs to be done on the whole thing & then the floor tile.
that'll be nice when its done. maybe they'll work on it tonight?

umm... i hope i have a job next year! things are looking quite grim in the education area. its ridiculous what they are doing in the schools. cutting back in areas that they shouldn't! i'm 100% sure that cutting back on aids in special education classrooms is NOT the answer. if they want to see the children PROGRESS- they need the help in those classrooms. its so sad. the teacher in our classroom is "riffed" for now. which is So ridiculous. I'm sure she'll have her job, but its dumb how much they put teachers & aids through. just like last year. Waiting til the end of June to find out if we have a job or not. i don't like waiting games.

i don't like waiting games of any sort.

anyways... while laying in bed on sunday night after a "fun, eventful evening" i got a text from jill. it was a picture message. and it was my NAME written by Sabrina Ward Harrison. Author of my favorite book Spilling Open!! it basically made my night. Jill got to spend the weekend with her at a workshop in Seattle. (JEALOUS!) But i had sent jill a package to deliver to Sabrina- a hair wrap. And so it was a nice surprise that jill asked her to do that for me! :)


happy 26th.

happy birthday to mike.

I made this wonderful cake last night at about 10pm while mike & his friend were working on the shower. so don't judge. i was really tired. :) and then i woke up this morning and put the layers together and did the top frosting and wrote on it. then my sister traci asked... no guns, tents, or trucks on it? i don't have any toy guns or tents or small trucks to put on it... so i decided to draw a gun. its not my best work. i assure you. i've never actually drawn a gun- not something i typically used to sketch on my papers in high school or anything. anyways, its a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. the writing is black sparkly decorating tube stuff. i had big plans to take it to mikes work when i got off work, and take him his presents. but my big plan was quickly ruined when mike informed me that his boss' wife brought in cake and ice cream for everyone. boo. so now mike, eddie (his friend helping with the shower) and i get to eat this cake. and i'm waiting patiently for the party to start. maybe i should get some neighbors to come join us?
oh well. too bad the house is a disaster & i haven't vaccumed because the boys keep walking in and out with cement dust and other dirt on their shoes from the shower. i'm waiting til its done to deep clean. so don't be offended if we haven't invited you over in a few weeks. :)
happy birthday mike. hope it was a good one. love you. 26. woot woot.
p.s. our anniversary is in 2 weeks. then my birthday is 2 weeks after that. good times. good times.

I'm enjoying my sewing machine.

first time sewing on an article of clothing NOT by hand

I made this skirt for my niece harley....

needless to say we tried it on her this afternoon
and it was like a baby fitted pencil skirt, so i'll be making another one! haha

this is from valentines weekend...we went camping just the 4 of us. haha...
shooter slept the whole way. so cute.

this is when he was just 6 weeks old,
when we were giving all the other pups away...

and look at him now. i think he might be a bit challenged.
he puts his rear towards me when i try to scratch his ears. hmmm.

but either way...we have cute dogs.

anyone interested in an 85 mercedes benz 300sd?! (diesel)
YOU KNOW YOU want it...... ok, you know someone ELSE that wants it...spread the word. its for sale.
