Now that we're 7 months into 2009, people are already doing their Christmas shopping. It's hard to think about Christmas when it's still warm enough for shorts. However, you can find some good deals out there if you just Google Christmas in July sales. The team has created another Template and Quickpage Blog Swap. You can call it a present that you don't have to throw away the wrapping paper. Remember to run over to Rina Kroes' blog to pick up the coordinating page.
The quickpage was created by Denise (wererich) and the absolutely fantastic wordart was created by Bonnie. These are the kits that were used in case you'd like to pick them up to further embellish:
This month has just run away from me! We have been quite busy this last two months! Tanner turned 13 on June 6th and Nick had his "Half" birthday on June 25th (he's a Christmas baby), school let out for summer vacation, we flew Justin, Eric's youngest son, up to visit for a while, visited with some dear friends from high school, went camping (took the dogs too!), took the kids to Bullwinkle Family Fun Center where Tanner and I pretty much rode go-carts ALL DAY LONG (LOL he was too short to ride by himself last year so he made up for it this time and needed someone to race with, why not me?!), received news that a family member of mine in Florida was having heart surgery (quad by-pass no less! All is good so far!), Tanner had another ER visit thanks to moto-x but luckily no broken bones, attended a funeral, made a few digital kits, finally finshed the July Blog Wear and of course the normal and no-so-exciting, everyday living and working. I hope that your summer is moving right along for you and that you are enjoying every minute!
I have had good days and a few not so good days with the panic attacks. I haven’t been able to notice if they are getting better or worse. Eric tells me the truth, so when I think that they seem to be less; he lets me know that they haven't! LOL But he does so ever so gently, most of the time! LOL I really hate it when he has to tell me "Go out to the truck now!" It really ticks me off at the time because I always seem to think that I just must be embarrassing him but once I get outside into the cool air, I realize why he sent me out. His normal response once he gets out to the truck, because 8 out of 10 times this happens while we are out shopping, he will apologize and say something like "I thought you were either going to either hyperventilate or pass out or vomit." He will usually add some kind of smart-alecky comment to it like "and you don't want the firemen to see that, now do you?" or "Mom always said to wear clean underwear in case of emergency! Not sure if firemen check for that?! You ARE wear clean underwear?" See, he teases me about firemen because for as long as I can remember, I've had a "thing" about/for firemen, especially our Vancouver Fire Department! OH-MY-GOODNESS, not one ugly or mean one in the bunch! I swear! I absolutely admire a brave man that can get dirty and sweaty and be that good looking and nice to boot while doing it! LOL Soooo, that is why Eric teases me; it makes me laugh too!
Well! LOL I wasn't planning on telling all of that but oh well it has been typed out, so there it is! LOL
How about taking a peek at my two new kits that have
been released this week in my store at Scrapbook-Elements?!
