This is the aftermath of the Earthquake this afternoon. 5.4 at this writing. Epicenter Chino Hills which is about 15 miles from here. It was really strong here. And it went on FOREVER. Usually they last 10-15 seconds. This lasted at least 30 seconds. I actually got off of the couch, thought I might have to *duck and cover*. My husbands horses were the only causulty here. Hope everyone else is OK.

Guttergirlz #3

This is my layout for Guttergirlz. The subject was When we Fight and the technique was ripped. I thought I didn't do the *ripped* part, but I ripped the page from my journal. Does that count?

Thank God it's Friday...

This has been a horrible week. So many things have gone wrong and I am glad it is over with.

Monday: 19 cent tacos where I work. The owner died in May and they decided to do a promotion in his honor. I had to work from 6am to 8pm. Why??? Because they decided to do the promotion on a Monday, which is inventory day. They also picked end-of-the month Monday, which means we also have to do paper inventory, so we have to be there at 6 am. They ran the promotion from 11 am to 8 pm. So we all got to stay till 8 pm. I was so exhuasted when I got home. I also messed up my knee, so now it hurts again.

Tuesday: I get told that the diferential on my car is broken. Of course it's the diferential. There is no way it could be the transmission that I had replaced 4 months ago and is still under WARRANTY!!!! So, I have been car-less since Tuesday and have no idea how much this is gonna cost me.

Thursday: My Mom gets out of the hospital to have hospice care at the house. I can't get the day off, so I have no idea how things are going. I don't know how much work falls to my Dad. I don't even know if the carpet got put in like it was supposed too. I am a horribe failure as a daughter right now. My husband and I also get into another I-hate-you-why-don't-you-sell-the-house-already fights. The man HAS to be going through some kind of male menopause and I don't think I'm gonna survive. He is INSANE!!!!!

Today: My knee hurts like a bitch so walking around at work has not been fun. I keep telling myself just one more day. I feel bad because I have neglected friends and family alike. I need 2 more hours a day.

Taco Tues.

Last night I went out to dinner with my two great friends, Stefanie and Ryan. He works at On The Border, a southwest type restaraunt. They have GREAT food!!! I got the chicken enchiladas in a green sauce. OMG!! They were great. I also split a brownie sundae. It was the best brownie I have ever had. He wants me to go work with him there, and give up on Bakers. I just don't know if I have it in me to start over. I would really like to quit working in a couple of years.

I am off to see my Mom today. She is still in the hospital. But she is getting better, so that is good. I was a little worried there for a moment. State of mind is everything, and she was stating to lose it.

Hopefully I will have some layouts posted later. I've been working on a couple of projects.

new challenge

This is my layout for the new challenge at Gutter Girlz. The prompt was "Junkie". How appropriate is that?? I could have done this layout about a miriad of things, but chose the m&m's cause that is my biggest weakness. Every week I eat 2 bags. One on each day off. I had to make a bargain with myself otherwise I would be eating them all the time.

I also wanted to say thanks to the girlz who encouraged me and looked at my blog. It means a lot.

Quick hello

Just a quick hello to say that I am still around. I'm not doing so well, but I'm here. The Doctor gave me new antibiotics for the cellulitis, and they are KICKING MY BUTT!! I am sick to my stomach, I have a headache all the time and I am tired. I don't have to go back to work until the 13th, but I am not getting anything done here.

Then to top it off, we had to put my Mom in a nursing home. She fell in the bathroom, and had to have stitches above her eye and on her hand. At this moment she cannot stand up or walk. We are hoping it is temporary, she sees a physical therpist everyday.

Anyhoo, that is my world at the moment. Hopefully I will have something positive to write in a day or two.
