It is too hot!!!

This is Redondo Beach, California...This is where I want to be right now. The cool breeze, the beach smell, the sound of seagulls...Hopefully, in the next week or two, we can get away for the weekend or something. Riverside is just too hot right now. At 10:00 it was still 80 degrees.
Other than the heat, this week has been good. Check out my sparkblog at the side to see my diet progress. So far this week I have been very good. Except for Sunday. We will not speak of Sunday. I made a solemn promise...
Hopefully I will have some new layouts to post this week. I have all kinds of new pictures of Rosie and a couple odd-ball pics that I want to scrap.
Well, I'm off to dream about the beach...

Is it just me...

Or is it weird that I find the story of the girl who fell into the open mahnole while texting absolutely HILARIOUS???? I mean, I'm glad she isn't seriously injured, but the picture of her just dissapearing into the ground makes me crack up.

Unfortunately, what is not so funny is the fact that her parents want to sue the city. I know that the workers should have put up the orange cones BEFORE taking the manhole cover off, but I'm thinking that due to the fact that she was immersed in her texting, and not like, PAYING ATTENTION to what she was doing, whether or not the cones were up is kinda a mute point.

I'm all for technology, I text, tweet, facebook, myspace, blog and spark almost everyday. The difference is there is a place and a time. If I am going to text, I stop, move out of the way of anybody around me, and text. Or, I wait till I'm in a safe place to text, waiting for the car to warm up, when I get home, sitting at the computer. I am wise enough to know that I can't do 2 things at once when both things need my concentration. Maybe that is the adult in me...Anyway, I AM glad that the girl wasn't hurt, and I DO think her parents are morons for sueing the city instead of having a chat with their daughter about priorities. Just my Humble Opinion...

I added the pic of the manhole cover cause I LOVE it...who would have thought that this thing would move me in such a way??

Just looking...

I've been hanging out today, looking at different sites, catching up on blogs and things. I found this paper at 2 peas and it is soo pretty!! It is from Prima Marketing and the paper is embroidered. I absolutely LOVE it. Of course, I had to buy it. along with some flowers and some other papers. I love Prima so much. I really like working with flowers and *bling*. Must be the girl in me, LOL. This paper will be PERFECT for a page I want to do of my Mom, who passed away last year. Her Name was Rose, so it goes together nicely. I can't wait...
Now, I'm gonna get ready and go do some shopping, now that the weather has cooled down a little. I don't know what made us move to Riverside instead of towards the beach...I remember, it was the price...We couldn't afford a trailer out by the beach...Riverside is nice, just a little too close to the desert for me...
Well, let's see what great things I can find tonight...wish me luck...

These are my two new layouts. Of course, they are of my beautiful granddaughter, Rosie. The first one is from April. It says "Baby Girl". That is a rub-on That I thought was soo pretty. The papers are all from DCWV pads. The 8x8 is from the "Sweet" pad which is soo cute. The plain pink under the picture already has adhesive on it...clearance at Joann's for $3.00 for a whole pad with spring colors...gotta love that!!
The second one is of Rosie sleeping, I think she looks like a little angel...Also rub-ons and Sweet paper. I really like the plaid. I like the combo of brown with the pastel colors. I liked the simplicity of them, I usually have to *fill the page* with stuff, but I liked the way these turned out.
At the DR. I learned that the infection is getting better, but VERY SLOWLY!!! So, I'm off for 2 more weeks. I also lost 3 lb. I don't know how, considering that I haven't been able to move for the last week between the leg infection and pinching the nerve in my back. Anyway...I'll take it!!

quick update

Just a quick note. Tomorrow, I go to the Doctor. I feel like the infection is getting better, just taking a long time...I will probably be off work for at least another 2 weeks. That's OK by me...I'm still getting disability, so all is good.
I will also post some layouts I did. I have wantd to work on some for a while, but my desk was a DISASTER!!! Gosh, I wish I was one of those really organized people. I spend more time cleaning and organizing than anything else!!! Before my excuse was that I was working all the time...well, can't say that anymore and things are still a mess, LOL.
That's all for now...more in the morning...
Oh, I added new music, let me know what you think...
