What a Day,,,,

Sorry that day is resulting in one of my long winded posts....
Yesterday was one of those days that I sure hope doesn't happen too often....




I woke up sweating up a storm starting to get a head cold & the power was out. Called GA Power & another tree had fallen but thankfully they said 3 hours instead of 3 days like last time. They were on the ball & got it up in less time than that -- GOOD thing. So I sit down at the desktop computer & get the black screen with error message saying invalid disk. I pushed the button again thinking it would go away & no such luck. Put in a text message to DS & he said he would look at it when he got home from work. It's GOOD that I have someone to be my help desk


I had a doctor appt so I got ready & as I was walking outside I tripped over one of the motorcycles that was parked in the driveway instead of the garage (thankfully didn't it didn't drop - GOOD thing). Brushed myself off since I didn't hurt myself physically (GOOD thing) just the ego since neighbor was walking dog at the time & I looked like a clutz & walked to my car (that's parked in the driveway so that the bikes can have a safe dry place for them) & I see a flat tire! I call to cancel the dr. appt since I'm not changing that tire & go back into the house in defeat.


I broke a glass emptying the dishwasher, a bee came in the house letting the dogs out & Miles the cat (indoor only) got out & I had to chase him.


I'm the kind of person who always tries to look for the good in situations.... so there were some GOOD things & I have to think that there was a reason that God didn't want me on the road that I'll never know. I didn't cut myself on the glass, I didn't get stung while killing the bee (I'm allergic & have an epi pen I carry everywhere, & I caught Miles before he got out of the back yard -- those were all GOOD things. The computer was an easy fix after the power outage it somehow lost the boot sequence & it was trying to boot off a memory stick instead of the hard drive -- so that was wonderful & a huge blessing nothing lost & a GREAT THING. I was able to keep up with challenges at the Nook (I made it thru to the 2nd round!!! which is a WONDERFUL thing). I had also staged my blog hop post the night before so it was up -- that was a really GREAT thing! Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to post comments & vote for me. I have the best readers around -- that's another GREAT thing


Yes the cold is getting worse, didn't talk to my best friend as planned (but she is understanding -- another GOOD thing) my father in law is coming unexpectedly to visit (my scrap room that is a disaster is the guest room) & the roof is leaking in 2 spots - rain is gone for couple days so that's a GOOD thing ...


But it could be so much worse so I'm thankful that it's not.... Sorry to sound like Martha Stewart but it really does help me to look at the bright side of things...


Here's a couple My Childhood layouts I did for different challenges.

Our favorite toys. Join me for a Scrap Your Childhood challenge over at Scrapbooking & Crafting Friends. This weeks challenge is to scrap about toys you played with.




Here's a layout for the Flashback Friday Challenge at 2peas. (ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN IN ) Topic was childhood house. I had already done one recently but thought I would focus on the front porch which was my favorite place to play. Fashion Model Gal was a game I used to play with my sister (we were big pretenders) I had a camera & mom would buy me 1 roll of film a week. We loved to pretend we were doing a fashion photo shoot on the front porch. I needed some help with the photos but it's fun to look at the intent behind them.




There is still a couple days left to enter the May monthly challenge over at the Paperclipping forum. I hope you join us for your chance in the spotlight.


Have a GREAT weekend - no matter what happens....

poor suz! I'm pretty klutzy, as is my Mom -guess I inherited it. I'm constantly tripping, falling, and cutting myself. Have broke 5 toes at different times and I'm only 25. Big hugs!

Love your pages, don't see purple too much, looks great.
