A Whole Lot of Sweating Going On...

Oh, my!!! is it ever HOT!!! We have had a couple of days that feel like our AC isn't working right, but it's just cause it's so darn hot:(

Well since my little "episode" last week, I have finally started feeling back to my old self again. It took a few days, but I feel great now:) I only two the meds the doctor prescribed for 2 days. They were keeping me up at night. I wasn't getting to sleep until like 1:30am!!!

I also felt that I really didn't need them. The thing that was bothering me was the headaches and I don't see how an antidepressant was going to help that. I really didn't want to be taking something I don't think I need. So that is that. In the event that I should need them (though I can't imagine why), I already have them, but for now...I am good:)

So today was the last day of summer school for Mattie. He also retested today. We will see how that goes. He said it was easy. We should be getting the results like mid July. no more early mornings. I will be super happy if the kids let me sleep in until 8:30 am. Estatic if I can sleep in until 9am;)

This past weekend we went to go see the new Transformers movie. It was WAY cool!!! Even the kids loved it. Steve also took the kids to the pool in the evening for a couple of hours. They are there again right now. These couple of hours of peace and quiet sure do help. I haven't had a break from them since summer began.

About two weekends ago, we had a little gathering of our graduating class. Not too many people went, but it was a nice time. I'll upload pics of that later.

Today I got my grocery shopping done early; before it got too hot. I hate going out in this horrible heat:( I also gassed up at Walmart. Gas had been $2.49 and today it was $2.33. Woo hoo!!!

I've gotten to do a little scrapping, so here's my latest LOs. I'm finally feeling the mojo again;)

This one I got done a couple weeks back, just kept forgetting to upload. I'm not too happy with it, but there it is:) For one, I totally glued down that lined paper the wrong way. It wasn't supposed to stick out so much nor be so straight. Ah, well...Moving on... Oh...the pics are from V's Field Day this past year and this was inspired by a 2Peas LO. The background paper is Friendly Forest. Striped pp is Scenic Route and the lined is MM, I believe. JB ticket, K&Co. diecuts and felt flower.

This one was a lift off of my friend Gina's blog. Mine did not turn out so great:( It's hard to replicate her FAB style...but I tried. Pics on this one are from Field Day too...obviously...LOL...Textured cardstock background, AC polka dot and grid pp and Prima Rock Star (lime) pp. T's $ spot journaling tags, Paper Studio cardstock alpha stickers and Martha Stewart felt banner.

This one was a 2Peas lift and I love this one. Lots of Crate on here with the exception of the Whimsies card and the MME Wild Word and MM tiny alphas.

Another lift off Gina's blog. This one turned out pretty good. K&Co. Berry Sweet paper (thanks for the inspiration, Gina cause I have not know what to do with that paper since I got it forever ago;)...Creative Imaginations diecut tag, 7Gypsies cardstock stickers, MLS tiny alphas, Doodlebug Paper Frills, adhesive gems, Sizzix cut butterfly, MM tiny alphas and AC Puffy Thickers. This is a pic of V on Father's Day swining on a tire swing in my BILs backyard of the new house. She LOVES to swing:)

I worked on this one today. I was quite time consuming, but I am so in LOVE with it!!! :) This was a lift off of 2Peas. I used a shaped paper to trace onto some Cosmo Early Bird; SO loving this line!!! Then I glued it onto kraft paper and trimmed around to leave an edge. All the paper edges are distressed with my HS edge distresser. I made all my flower embellies using my scalloped circle punches, pop dots and buttons. The little leaves are Cricut cut and the daisies are Martha Stewart. Just picked these up today at BL especially for this LO:) I hand stitched the border on this cause I knew I wouldn't be able to manuver with the machine and I didn't want to wreck it and I SO needed the stitching on here. MLS and MM tiny alphas for the title and date. The pic is of V and Stevie on Father's Day in my BILs front yard of the new house.

This past week was also the last week of our Blog Hop Challenge. It sure was a lot of fun. We are planning on doing another one real soon:)

Well, I've got 30 minutes before the kids should be heading back home, so I'm going to go get started on dinner and see if I can start on another LO. Gotta strike while the mojo is HOT;) Have a great night:)

LOVE all the pages! Especially the last one! That one ROCKS! I wouldn't say I've "lost" my mojo, but I sure can't get anything done these days with both kids! Today was one of "those" days :( I only got that ONE page done...maybe tomorrow :)
