Inquiring minds want to know..............

There are alot of questions running through my mind as of late................
1. Why do children only tell everything they know at a bad time?? rather than when you are alone in the privacy of your own home.

2. Why does everyone say "If you don't enjoy your job, it's not worth working there anymore. " yet they stay for another 20 years..........(yes, i still hate my job, and yes i am still working there. i'm a hypocrite, i know.)

3. Why do Scrapbook store owners hold design team calls and say that they want EVERYONE to submit WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED OR ON A DESIGN TEAM and they want NEW talent.................yet they pick the ones that are on 52 teams and/or work for manufacturers??

4. Why do i set myself up for failure and/or rejection??

5. Why am i having a pity party today?? Because i am bored and there is nothing else to do! LOL

Wild Hogs??

Are living in my house!

No really folks, have you seen this movie?? I laughed until my face hurt. Now that is some goodness.

Speaking of goodness............we finally got some rain!! So that means that the temperature dropped from a blistering 106 to a swealtering 95!! Woohoo!!

Dalton started school this week. He said he wasn't excited, but he got up early and was ready to go before they even opened the schoolhouse doors!! I'm happy to report he got a good teacher this hopefully it will be a smooth ride. After last years track, i'm ready for a new course!!
Which brings me to 4-wheeling. Hubby and Dalton went out to the shed to get the 4-wheeler out this afternoon and as soon as they opened the door...........Hubby got stung. ON THE END OF HIS NOSE!! HUGE red wasp (made a huge red dot).......along with 100 friends.......building the ultimate condo in the rafters!! Apparently the whole pack weren't getting along, because they started a sub-division on the wall............but i digress. Anyways, it took my poor hubby 1/2 hour to get close enough to get the nest(s) down without getting stung again.

I had another layout accepted into the Prima Gallery this week. Stay tuned to as it is all a part of the challenge i am issuing for September! It's gonna rock!

Lot's of fun scrappy things at PubCalls this month. I have gotten a ton o' work done the past couple of weeks for contests and such. Now the waiting begins.............

Good Luck to all in Scrappy Land who are waiting on calls! What do you have on your table right now?
Here's a few pics from this week! Enjoy!

So, my friend Lucy AKA Scrapperqueen challenged me to put a summer/calmness pic on my blog. I love sitting in a quiet spot on the riverbank and watching Dalton play in the cool clean water. So peaceful. Time to think and clear my head of the stressors i encounter on a daily basis with work.
