hi guys!!!!!!!!!!!

It is already HOT here! ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh have I mentioned that I HATE the hot? what? only a bazillion times....well it is true dang it trueeeeee~

so...yesterday I was a lump. got a few things done, but was tired and a little under the weather. so today is catch up day. I have laundry, kitchen and room to do. Must print out some papers to do some crafts. Must plant flowers flowers and more flowers. Must fight and win against suckers out in garden. Stinkers grow where ever they want and will not stop.

I was looking through the gallery at DST this morn and saw this layout by Nikki. Girl has been on fire with her layouts of late. Go leave her some love while your at it...flip through her gallery for lots of inspiration. (layout used with permission)

besides being a totally awesome layout with great design...the journaling really drew me in. while looking at the pic and the childish delight going on and then reading the journaling...I became so wistful for childhood.

It made me think of how much has changed since childhood

Then and now

I ran for fun--I run only if someone is on fire

I love to play in the dirt--I do NOT like dirt anymore. I tolerate it

chocolate for breakfast was awesome--ok...hasn't changed,l ol

I trusted everyone--every one is suspicious to me...especially if my kiddos are
involved. I watch too many crime shows, lol

I liked everyone-- a lot of people irritate me...especially on the road, in the
grocery store and in the news, drunk people at public events

I would throw on whatever and just go--I worry too much what I look like

I loved myself and thought I could do anything--I am too hard on myself and always
doubt my abilities

I loved to go through boxes in the closet...might be treasure--I avoid those boxes
at all cost. They might require me to sort and figure out what
to do with them

I loved to climb trees, houses, jungle gyms, etc--very afraid of heights now

I loved to pretend to fly...wanted to be a bird--hate flying and planes

I wrote stories and poems allllllll the time as well as kept a journal--I miss
writing. I miss poems. This is as close to a journal as I get.
Though I have 5 looking at me from my shelf.

My mom and dad and aunt irritated me....hulllllooooooo what do they know.--I spend
tons of time with them. My best buds. Love them and am so thankful
for them

I believed in happily ever after and fairytales--love the concept. but now know that
they require work and maintenance. still possible though ;)

I had boundless energy and spunk--my get up and go got up and went

I would be in the pool allllllllllllllll day-- I dip in now and then get out since I
have so much to do (that is iffffff you can get my butt into a suit)

I wanted 6 kids-- WHATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT (heheheheh. though I would like
more...but SIX) heheh I have no energy for that.

Just fun to think about these things. I could go on and on. Try to remember what you were like and how you thought back then. Don't you wish you could recapture some of that. The dreams, the confidence, the energy...oh please the energy. To be a child again for a day. To laugh and jump and run. To dream and sing so loud and not care who listened. To have some one hold you in their arms and rock you as they sang. To have someone tuck you into bed. To have your booboos kissed. I wanna have a tantrum some days. I want to be king of the mountain. I want to wear a feather boa, mismatched socks and my mom's big white sunglassese to the store and claim I look fabulous to everyone who looks. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


I have a new challenge up at SDK's blog. I really really really would love if you played. I don't ask much from you...I know I know...I have a lot I ask with my spitballs, to birdcage liners, etc...but besides those ;)

So pleaseeee come play! pleaseeee heheheh (pathetic enough???)

It is about stepping outside your scrapping comfort zone. you can win a GC if you play!!!! come on over

ok my dears...of to work.

hugs and happy scrapping!

I was just thinking something like this! My son was in the ER Friday night getting a cut on his foot fixed up and by Sunday morning he was running around like nothing had happened. Not once did he complain that it hurt too much to do something. I wish could do that. I have a feeling that if I had cut my foot, I would be acting like a baby;) "I can't cook or clean, my foot hurts!"
