So..... some of you may not know this (i was trying to hold off until we knew for sure)- but RIck has been down in Utah these past 3 weeks working for a Graphic Design firm. They offered him a position and said "lest go 30 days and see how it goes and then we'll go from there".
well, being what we've been through already this past summer, ther'es no friggin' way i'm going to move again without knowing that this job is secure. So he's been living down there with my grandparents while i've been here with the kiddos. He comes home late friday night and leaves Sunday evening to get back. It's not a lot, but it's OK.

Honestly, going through this "separation" has been easier than what it was in Memphis. Until last night. It's been a rough week with sick kids and baby has been awake a lot at night- hence no sleep. And no sleep mixed with single mom and sick kids.... not a good thing after a while. But things will get better. I have faith they will get better. And we will hopefully find out today whether or not we will be moving yet again. So keep the fingers crossed, the prayers coming, and the well wishes available... cause we could use everything we can get right now!

OK- enough with that schtuff..... I was digging in my scrapbooks the other day and found these pages that I did a while ago. I love it when i can go back and still love what i've done. 99.9% of the time, i look back and think "how on earth did i come up with that crap?"- so on the blue moon occassion where i don't think that, i get pretty excited. Maybe i should just frame them! lol
And because I haven't left any eye candy for a while, I'll post a few of my favs i've done from the past. Hopefully, (if i don't fall asleep or have to hold a baby all day) I'll actually get to create something today as well. wish me luck!

That is what I keep asking, "how on earth do you come up with this cute stuff"? I love your pages! Good luck with Rick's work. I hope it works out for the best!
