I called in to the main dealer this morning and the guy who I dropped the car off with last week (Steve) tells me that the guy who sold me the car (Darwin) took it to get fixed...???!!! So he says call over there and find out what's going on or call him back if I can't get any answers.
So I call the other place and the guy who answers the phone (David) asks me if I'm the one waiting on the Chevy truck. I guess they'd already gotten the "heads up" that I was going to be calling...Hmmm...Anyway, he tells me the part hasn't come in yet!!! OMG!!! That pissed me off!!! And when exactly were they going to call and let me know???!!! So he says that parts usually come in on Mondays or Thursdays, but since Monday was a holiday, it might come in today or else it could be next Monday or Thursday or Saturday...Uh...how many days are left???!!!
So I asked how long he thought it was going to take and he says..."Well, we are kind of at the mercy of the dealer. Whenever they decided to send us the part"...Ugh!!! Well, at least I have something to drive in the meantime, but I just want my truck back already!!! I hate the inconvenience of it all:(
Nothing else to share. Just my morning drama. Oh...it's actually kind of cool today. Weird, but it is. Nice and breezy and not at all uncomfortable. Gotta enjoy this while it lasts:)

So we had a long weekend with the Memorial Day holiday and all. The kids were off on Monday. Sunday the kids spent the day at the inlaws and we took a drive up to Austin to hit the Archiver's sale. Wasn't much of a sale, but I got some cool things I'd been wanting:
Also hit some BLs stores there to see if I could find any different BG goodies. This is what I found:)On Monday we hit the first show and took the kids to see the new Indiana Jones movie. It was really good. We also bought our swimming pool. We should be setting it up pretty soon. The kids only go to school until the 4th of June so we are aiming to get it up by then:)
So not much else to tell. If I think of something else super interesting I need to share, I'll come back and update;)

Some pretty cool BG goodies and some Inkadinkadoo stamps:) They also had the BG ribbon pack in Color Me Silly (didn't get that though). I hit two other BL stores yesterday evening, but they had nada:( I'd love to find someone who's come across some different themes at theirs cause the packs have multiples and I could swap/trade some out to get something else.
Hmmm...not much else going on around here. We did a movie over the weekend. Took the kids to see Narnia Prince Caspian. EXCELLENT movie. I LOVE, LOVE the Naria movies to far:) Went by M's for a little shopping and found some really cute shabby chic decor for 60% off!!!
Ooo, I also picked up the little mini albums kit from the Berry Sweet line. I had been waiting for that. Unfortunately the paper we picked up in the morning didn't have the M's ad/coupon in it and I paid full price for it. When I got home I checked the paper Steve brought home for the office and lo and behold...there was a coupon:( I can't wait to start on the mini albums though. They are just TOO stink' cute!!! ;)
No new LOs to share. I haven't gotten much scrapping done as of late. I have an early appointment tomorrow morning at the car dealer to get a light fixed on the car and have it detailed:) I gotta head out there as soon as I drop the kids off at school. It didn't occur to me when I made the appointment that I'd have to rush over there. I was just thinking that the earlier the appointment, I wouldn't run the risk of getting back late to pick up the kids. Just gotta make sure I get up a little earlier so that we can run a little ahead of schedule:)

It's a 2001 Chevy Blazer:) Victoria keeps commenting on how "shiny" it is...LOL. She was SUPER excited and thanked me like a bajillion times. You'd have thought I bought HER the car...LOL
More news...so there was this cat hanging out in our backyard. I was feeding it every now and then; when I'd catch it outside. The last time I went grocery shopping I picked up some cans of food for it. So the last week or so, I had been feeding her more regularly. Well, this past week "my" kitty started bringing me some nice little "presents"...ah ha...The first day she brought me a squirrel. Yesterday she brought me a bird. I am not liking the gifts so much:( I'd much prefer she bring me some nice patterned paper;) ...Victoria informed me that "she can't do that, Mom"...oh, well...
So now I'm not sure how I stand on the whole kitty thing. I'm REALLY not liking having to go out there and dispose of small animal remains....Can you say, "Eeewww"???
OK...I have been on a scrapping role lately. Even after completing the 7 or so LOs on our Scrapapalooza day;) I got some more done over this last week AND I didn't even do any scrap shopping this week!!! Are you surprised??? LOL So here's what else I got done:
This is a lift off one of the LOs Lal did on our scrap day. I used some pics of V at Sea World:) Ppaer are MME; Everyday Tango and Magnolia, I believe. The black/white polka dot is MM.

Another lift off of 2 Peas. The papers in the original LO were Indian Summer which I SO want, but I improvised:) I used some Daisy D's Attic Heirloom, BG Infuse, MME Wild Asparagus and some DCWV "text" paper. Also used May Arts lace, MME die cut, HG paper flower, Prima journaling sheet and MM Love Story buttons. The large butterflies are cut with one of my Cuttlebug dies. The smaller ones I used my Martha Stewart punches. I covered a shipping tag in some random paper and used some black ric rac as well. The birds on the branch I cut using my Wishblade. I got the image of this really cool site that had tons of nice stuff.Last one:)...Pic of V at the pumpkin patch last year. Paper are BG Mellow, die cuts are Daisy D's. I used my Fiskars Threading Water punch on the green cardstock, May Arts lace, MME die cut "title", a couple of the Prima flowers I got at M's, Foofa La button and Imaginisce crotched bloom. TFL. I'm off to enjoy some peace and quiet now that the kids are in bed:)
