Scrap With Me a Second

That sounds like I’m itching for a fight doesn’t it? I swear I’m not. Just showing off some new layouts!

First off, Rachel, of Pretty in Green has some GORGEOUS “tractor” related kits. Jane Doe and Joe Deer! They’re seriously TOO cute, and also available as a bundle!


Seriously, too cute, right?

The first layout is of Madi with Dixie, Josh’s dad’s horse. They’re at the old property in Holton. Such a pretty place. I’m going to miss it!

The next one is from the property in Holton as well. Labor Day. My favorite puppy is shown Open-mouthed smile

Broken on the Inside


Yesterday was just an awful day. It started out semi-okay. I got up. Yeah, I was a little bitchy, but that’s just NORMAL for me on a weekend, or any morning. I’m not a morning person.

As the day wore on, I started noticing little changes that signified a big baddy on it’s way: tingly fingers, discombobulated head, numb half of my body, tongue felt weird. CRAP! Sign of an aura migraine on the way! Shit!

We had plans of going to Holton to get both vehicles’ oil changed. The car (Josh’s main work vehicle) definitely needed one. It had been over FIVE THOUSAND miles since he’d gotten one, which wasn’t good. His check oil light had come on, and the car had been nearly BONE DRY. YIKES! NOT good!! Truck has gone like 500 miles, Laughing out loud but it had been since September/October? So over three months. But, if I’ve got the migraine, I can’t drive. So I stayed home with Madison. To make it up to her, she got her TV back 2 weeks early. Ethan went with Josh and apparently ran around like a chicken with his head cut off!

Now I’m trying to figure out what prompted the migraine. Thankfully, I nipped it in the bud EARLY before it could get too bad, but I think I need to find something else. My body does NOT like aspirin. It HAS to be the aspirin because every other pain med that DOESN’T have it doesn’t effect me like that (I feel light-headed, woozy, and all around DRUNK without having had a drop of alcohol). Ugh! But, it works, so I guess I’m stuck with it, since I refuse to use a prescription for it. I don’t get them enough to warrant one! The last time I had one? I think it was LAST spring. Surprised smile

So, before I ramble on too much longer, I’m going to shut up and go back to working on the things I was supposed to do yesterday but couldn’t because I couldn’t focus on anything!

BUT! One last thing before I officially shut up: ALL last week I saw UNDER 125lbs. That’s without me doing much more than limiting how much I take in. So, that is my official sign from my body that my REAL goal of 115-120lbs by the start of 2012 is actually attainable Surprised smile YAY!


Oot und Aboot

Goodness, it was COLD this morning! We went from 75F yesterday to a high in the 40s today! *shiver* I hate the cold.
