Ok so Thursday was not clean the house day it was sit in the hospital with my dd and get some answers....well it was gasintenstinal virus...but her iron was good and her white blood cell count was down. So she was in good health...just need to keep an eye on her. (I actually typed 'i'
So I will update you more on the Saturday night out as I have a little task for yas...hee hee

Anyh0w, on to this week past...and here goes (sniff sniff)
I tell you, when it rains it pours.
Monday I didn't see my dd's friend at school and on Tuesday I didn't see her so I asked the teacher where she is (this little girl calls me her second mom, and I taught her how to ride a bike) The teacher said she is in the hospital with rectum bleeding. So that night I made tons of phone calls and Wednesday I went to the hospital and saw her. Oh she looked so thin and pale in that bed. She smiled a bit when I saw her. As I was there they found out it was E-coli and that because they hadn't caught it soon enough her kidneys were starting to shut they were rushing her code 3 by ambulance to Children's Hospital. So later that night we went to children's and saw her. I had taken dd...and they chatted up a storm. But while there we found out her kidneys had shut down and she was due for surgery. Last night she started acting strangely and we were worried about bleeding on the brain. We found out later it was a reaction to the morphine.
I am stressed and exhausted. I continually pray for my little girl.....she is the oldest of 2. Her mom is my good friend and it hurts to see her this way.
I will keep you posted, but please understand if I am not on as much this week.....we are hoping the cathater dialysis will work and her kidneys will start functioning again....if not then it is blood transfusion, dialysis and possibly transplant....which I along with her mom, grandpa are a match (RH -)
Those who pray...please pray for her, those who think often :) please think of her.
So this weekend since last night I am home alone with all my animals plus my little girls hamster Noel. Hubby and the kids have gone to his mom's with his brother to help with some siding or whatnot. I am guessing them to be home Monday afternoon. I have so far cleaned the kitchen, my son's room and will do my daughters tomorrow. Whether or not I will wash the walls I am not sure. I am doing laundry as well. I tell you when I am upset, I clean like a maniac. Scary but true....better than eating I guess.
Well I am off, time to eat something....will keep you all posted.

You Are 84% A Child of the 80s

There's hardly a moment of the 80s that you missed out on.
Was there ever a better decade? As if!
proves em all right...I am a child an 80's
I go to church this morning and then I come home after church and do some stuff at one of the message boards I am part of Paper Popsicles, and then I head to the bedroom to do some reading and take a nap. The kids wake me a couple of times, but I fall right back to sleep, which is (I get cranky if I don't get my So they wake me LOUDLY at 5:30 pm saying that it is time to get up for the BBQ. BBQ??? I didn't take anything out for dinner I tell them, and they the church. Can anyone say DUH!!!!!!!
I signed us up for the Vision 220 going on at the church tonight. It costs $1 per person and you get dinner and dessert, plus daycare...ok where are you going to find an offer better than that????? So I got up and got dressed (I had put my jammies on when we got home after and then off we went. We had hamburgers and veggies for dinner (kids had hotdogs) and watermelon for dessert - as much as you could eat until it was all gone. Can anyone say AWESOME!!!!! Grilled burgers at that!!! With all the fixins.
The messages were about Families, and Faith. It was great. I really enjoyed it. We are going to sign up for the next one as well.
On to something else...
I check all the critters in the house and ensure that they are watered and fed. Yup, some needed food, some water, but over all, everyone is good. A couple of cages need to be cleaned tomorrow, no big just add that to the long list of chores I have tomorrow...the biggest of course is laundry...gotta get it sorted and folded so I can go thru it and get rid of those clothes that don't fit as Big Brothers are coming Tuesday Morning to pick it up and it has to be outside the front door first thing in the morning. So anyhow...I check on the Black Bear she is female...T-Man named her....he thinks (ok demands) she is a
So there Bob is, just coming down from her extension of her know those Habitrails (here is the one we have
We also have the safari one, so I switch between the two. So Bob comes down from her 'loft' and that is good cause her loft is looking NASTY. So I take it off and put on a 'top' on the open hole so she can't get out. So as I am emptying the 'nasties' into the garbage and taking it to the bathroom to clean it...I am questioning myself...Why do these critters pack their cheeks so full of food to bring it to the place where they sleep? And not only that, why do they DO THEIR BUSINESS in the area where they not only sleep.....but eat???? This is really stumping So if you have any idea or an answer to my question...please please enlighten me. I mean I have litter trained my bunny and still if the litter box isn't in the pen....she doesn't crap near her bed or food....she picks a corner.....COME ON!!!!!! I seriously thought females were so much cleaner????? LOL LOL
Well that about does it for me tonight...ok today as it is now quarter past midnight here, and my book is calling along with the flyers that I have just pulled from the weekend papers.
Hope everyone had a wonderful and eventful weekend. I also hope it was dry and no flooding involved.
Ciao.....Tami girl....where you be?

You Are 56% Happy

You're definitely a happy person, even though you have your down moments.
You tend to get the most out of life, though there's always some more happiness to be squeezed.

You Are: 40% Dog, 60% Cat

You and cats have a lot in common.
You're both smart and in charge - with a good amount of attitude.
However, you do have a very playful side that occasionally comes out!

I forgot to mention that the layout I posted recently is based on a scrap lift.....not totally, but I got the idea from a friend Shelley. She is a ROCKIN' scapper!!!!!!

You should also check out Paper Popsicles is having a DT Call....Deadline is July 6th. I am going to try out. Once I do some layouts and get them in, that I won't be able to share them for awhile if I am chosen. If I am not chosen, I will put them up here right away.

Not much is happening today...the SPCA clean up I was going to do was cancelled (sad I am). So since it looked like rain I stayed home instead of going to the church to help with the carwash.

Hubby was up at 4:30 am and went fishing...I was up at 4 am...insomnia so I read for awhile and then around 5:30 am napped until 6 am when T-Man got up and then napped a bit till 7:30 am when Nana came up to read to me. I went to bed around Midnight, so I am feeling a bit tired. I am sure a nap is in my future....and some scrapbooking....cause I have the itch and need to scratch it. I haven't scratched it in a long time.

So I am going to sign off and leave ya with a couple more layouts....thanks for checkin' em out.


Sorry it is crooked......

This one is based on a sketch I believe.....I lost my notes...grrrrr was based on a recipe can check that out here

Oh and of course at 5 pm it is Law and Order - CI and then at 7 pm is Law and Order - SVU

Criminal Minds is on but it is repeats....though I don't mind watching

The other night - Monday - MONK was on and there was one part where I spit most of my cereal (my snack) on the dog who was laying at my feet - it was soooooooo funny. I almost peed my pants. I love that show, and his character makes it awesome!!!!!

Ok back...had to make dinner for the family, and then had to eat and then brushed Nana's hair and put it in a pony tail. She has such fine fine hair. Though the rest of us have thick hair. Go

I am going to be doing my minutes from our PAC meeting and Executive meetings.....then I have to go through all the meetings and print them out and have the Chairperson sign them....copy them and hand them out. Then it all starts gain next

We were happy to find out though that it looks like we are getting the Grant from Ronald McDonald house. So we can go forward with the playground plans...yay. Oh and in September we will be raffling off a Wii. One of the teachers won it and she and her hubby don't play so they are donating it to the PAC to raffle off. How cool is that?????

I am going to check back and see if I have posted some layouts that I did awhile ago...if not, I will add them here.

Oh my goodness the heat

The heat, the heat!!!! Will it ever end??????? Are we destined to suffocate in this horrible heat????

Fans, fans, fans....bring me more fans. The ceiling fans, the stand up fans, men who fan.....bring them all!!!!!!!

Yes it has been hot the past week and this weekend. I couldn't tell you how hot, but it was almost 30 on my register thingy. Now seriously, when the heat is on, that is HOT!!!!!! So you can imagine.

So I have been just vegging in front of the tv and just melting. I am so NOT a heat girl.

Hubby went fishing with some of the men from church this past weekend. He had a good time so that was good.

I have not scrapped in a week and a bit. Too friggin hot!!!!!!!

I am going to start though as I am looking to enter for a DT

I have now started two new message is Canadian and the other is the States. The Canadian one is called Scraphoria and the other is called Paper Popsicles. They are great places. Paper Popsicles is brand new and is really neat. The name sounds so cool. Something totally different that heck I wouldn't have thought of. Unique I would say.

So I don't have any thing new to show off today, but I will find something here. Hang tight....but while I am looking, let me go over this with you......

We were watching Go Diego Go and I tell you sometimes that cartoon (along with Dora) just seem so silly. He was supposed to help some animals that got trapped behind some sea coral (though how they did, I will never know). So he goes into his submarie and gets the octopus to help him. So he is telling the octopus how he needs to help the sea animals and asks the octopus for help and could he direct him. Hey of course that octopus says yes, (like what else would he say?)and off they go. BUT before they can really get going, we have to find the octopus in different colours of coral and rock etc. So off we go to do that....yeaaa that was fun....BUT OH NO!!!! the place where the sea animals are trapped is a volcano and it is going to burst....they have to hurry. So off they go again.....BUT OH NO....there are some sharks or something in their the octopus has to ink.....INK OCTOPUS INK.....Yell INK everyone.....INK!!!!!!!!! INK!!!!!!!!!!!!! INK!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yea we made it thru that ok, BUT OH NO, the volcano is going to blow....they have to hurry!!!!! Off they go, on to save the animals....BUT OH NO!!!! another freaking distraction!!!!! (do you get the idea???? will they ever make it on time???? will the animals be saved??? will the volcano ever blow????? does this story ever end????) To make a long story short, they make it to the animals, the octopus digs a hole into the area the animals are and they all get safe from the.....are you ready for this?????? COLOUR BLOWING VOLCANOS.....they don't explode, and no one would have come to harm, so really they weren't in trouble at all.....except maybe trying to figure out how the heck they got into that friggin predicament so they could get out......LMBO

Oh and Dora.....'where are we going???' 'where are we going????' like heck she asks so many times and is told how to get there so many times, you would figure a girl her age would be able to hold that to memory.....I mean if she doesn't know 3/4 of the way thru the show.....then she doesn't deserve to 'GET THERE' at all. Don't you think???????

Yes....I have issues.....but hey, doesn't everyone???? Hee hee

Ok I shall find a pic for ya to share. Hope all is well where you are all from.


not sure where I got this or where it comes from......but hey, so true! LOL
