Journal Entry: Fri Apr 13, 2012, 9:52 AM
I am going to feature 30 people in this journal.
After the first 30 deviants comment, I will choose 3 of their pictures I like the best and put them in my journal.
But if you want to get featured you have to do this in your journal as well, with the first feature being me.

I Propose a Challenge

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 4, 2012, 11:35 AM

Just a fun one with pictures.

Pick a day. Any day. Doesn't have to be an exciting one.
Every hour, on the hour, take a picture.

So, if you wake up at 7am, you'll take a pictures at

until you go to bed.
Personally, I'm going to do it tomorrow. Super Bowl Sunday for me is the perfect day. I'm going shopping in the morning with my family (gotta pick up some Girl Scout stuff, as well as "extras" for SBS), and then it's all family-time :D

Though, I could choose next Sunday. The Phantom Menace, 3D :D Tickets purchased BEFORE they were even on sale. I <3 Fandango.

Anyways, come one, come all :D

BTW: I read this challenge online somewhere :D

Not doing much.
LOTS going on though!

Girl Scouts every other weekend.
First Thursday of every month is Tiger Den meetings.
Every Third Monday is Cub Scout pack meetings.

Big news: Josh is working in Topeka now. He's also a regular. He works in the same station as his dad. His brother is now officially in Topeka, but as a PTF again.

Management is made of douche-sickles. Fun.

Nothing else.

Dream a Little Dream For Me

Tue Oct 25, 2011, 7:36 PM
I'm trying out the new beta thing for Journals and all that. I'm not sure how I feel about it. Doesn't work too well, right now, on the laptop, because it has a crappy resolution, but I won't judge on that.

Not much is going on just now this week.

Yesterday, I went to the #NaNoWriMo Kick Off. It was awesome! The ML was actually calling me by name, which made me grin. Oh, and really, truly blush :D It was AWESOME!

Today, we had the parent-teacher conferences for the kids. Madison has the vocabulary of a 6th grader. Seriously. She rocks my socks! She's doing GREAT in math. There are a few trouble areas, and it's mainly because she hasn't completely figured out which learning  style is right for her :D
Ethan was the big surprise. He's reading at a 2nd grade level. He's having a few issues with comprehension but he's READING without an issue. That boy SERIOUSLY amazes me all the time.

Tomorrow is their Annual Halloween Parade at school. I'm going this year. I also baked muffins for BOTH classes. :D Chocolate chip, cinnamon streudel and banana nut. Thank you Betty Crocker for being Peanut Allergy safe :D One of the children in Ethan's class suffers from it, so we have to be careful.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Journal Entry: Fri Oct 21, 2011, 7:48 AM
Nah, not really. Just having some fun.
Soon is Halloween. The kids are seriously excited about it.
Madi is going as a Full Moonista. Basically, a half-tranformed werewolf girl in purple and black! So CUTE! Seriously, adorable.
Ethan is going as Optimus Prime. His costume glows in the dark :D

Otherwise, not much is going on. Well, not a whole lot. This past week has been the insanest week EVER. I was in my truck, literally, every day, from Saturday until this Saturday.

Saturday: Girl Scouts meeting
Sunday: Girl Scouts meet-up @ a fruit farm
Monday: Had to drop something off at the school for a Daisy.
Tuesday: Field Trip. Thankfully, I got to ride the bus for part of that.
Wednesday: I had to go to Walmart for kids' picture day outfits
Thursday: Doctor's appointments for the kids
Friday (today): We were out of milk :O
Saturday: ANOTHER Girl Scouts meeting


Even worse! Monday, I have to be in it again, because I have a #NaNoWriMo meet-up at the library! I'm excited for #NaNoWriMo! Goal is Win #3!! Eventually, the first 3 loses won't count! :D

Hmm, I think that's it. Not that it matters, since no one ever comments on my journal entries, :lol:

So Hungry

I am not usually a breakfast eater, but most mornings now, I've been waking up STARVING. I think it's because I have been eating dinner at a "normal" time each day. It's crazy though! --MUST HAVE FOOD--

Chicken or Fish

I Can Has Win

I wrote 50K in 21-days, not 30 :O Go Me! Go Me! Revel in my majesty :P

I'm not 100% finished writing the novel, but I'm almost to the end!! Now to finish Novel #1 from last year (my first EVER WIN). :w00t:

Not Much Going On

Soon, I'll be prepping for Thanksgiving baking and cooking. I'm making Pumpkin Pie, Hoosier Pie, and Green Bean Casserole. :w00t:

What are your plans for Thanksgiving?

Truly :w00t: Worthy

We've been having some problems with the graphics card (GeForce 9100 integrated) not running right. So, we cleaned out the tower last night. *achoo* Goodness, there was a LOT of dust :O We hadn't cleaned it since we got it ... in April of this year. Um, oops :blush:

Early Halloween

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 27, 2010, 7:44 AM

_MG_9485 300/365 - Astrid Pays a Visit

The kids were able to wear their Halloween costumes to school today.

Ethan, obviously, is going as Woody. His costume is a little short. Good thing he has the boots, right? *LOL*

Madison is going as Astrid, from How to Train Your Dragon. She was going to go as Tinkerbell but the costume totally didn't fit. It said it fit 4-6x. 6x must have REALLY changed because Madi's in 6s now, and good god, her clothes aren't THAT baggy. Its like its designed for someone 2-3x her size, around, but her height. That's kind of scary, honestly. Yeah, I know she's on the small size for her age, but good LORD. That would be a 65-80lb 7-year-old. We didn't, all 3 of us in my family, didn't hit that weight until we were at least 9 or 10. Heck, my brother, until he was SIXTEEN was 4'8" and 65lb, LMAO. He technically should have been in a booster until he was 13, ROFL.

In other news, I'm playing with Scrivener for Windows. Its in BETA. BETA runs out Dec. 12, and the new one comes out. So, yeah. Not sure what I'm gonna write NaNo with, but eh, I'm enjoying trying out new programs!

I Remember

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 11, 2010, 11:08 AM

9 Years Ago

This post is something I do each year, and you'd think each year it would get easier, but it never has. I'm praying it never does, because that means we're forgetting.

Nine years ago, I was living in Florida. Nine years ago, Josh and I were friends. Nine years ago, I didn't have contact with the family who meant the most to me. Nine years ago, everything changed. Some for the better, some for the worse.

It started out as an ordinary day. I wake up, take a shower, enjoying some Linkin Park. I get in my crappy Ford Tempo, and drive to school. I honestly cannot remember what class. According to the day of the week it happened, it was apparently English Composition.

Rough and Tumble

So school has officially started for the kids. Ethan has been in trouble twice, and so has Madison. Madi? For the SAME EXACT THING both times: throwing things. Oi! So, her punishment at school was that she lose her extra recess for tomorrow. She also lost her TV here at home.

Bullshit Excuses are Bullshit
I noticed that the photograph is blurry and feel that the colours are quite bland. If this were in focus and the colour was more bright or vibrant, it could make this photograph a lot more pleasing.

On this shot:
Little Buds by SarahCB1208

Um, its MACRO. Its SUPPOSED to be blurry. And I swear to fucking god, the PLANT is that color.

I understand photography is subjective, but that bullshit excuse?
