Fast Friday

Just a quick post since I haven't posted for a few days....

I am going on a scrapbooking weekend overnighter. That means, no crying kids, no nagging the husband and 2 days of adult conversations. I will only be an hour away from home, but hey, thats an hour away!! I am sure that if you need a break as bad as I do, that will make sense to you.

I don't know where I am going, but I am hoping to get at least two albums finished. And I am not a prepared person like the other girls going with me. They all have their layouts planned, and I just have my pictures organized and I am taking EVERYTHING with me. I am taking all my paper and embellishments. I have just sat down at my computer because I believe I have everything packed. My trunk is full of my scrap stuff and my backseat is full of food and drink.

So have a good weekend and hopefully I will have much to post about next week!!

On this day in 2001 I was in college and I had just gotten out of class and walked to my friend's house and his roommate was on the couch crying and watching the news. We all just sat there and watched everything. We didn't know what was going to happen next and it was just so sad to see the people involved in those tragedies. I'll never forget.

Superman's first day of his second year of preschool was today. He gets to go from 12:30 to 3pm, 5 days a week now. It sucks that he couldn't start kindergarten this year cause he is so ready and preschool is so expensive. He is a very smart kid and his preschool teachers say he may be difficult because he already knows what they are teaching this year. Sorry for burdening them with my genius child.

I am still jobless. Well I do clean a few houses, but that isn't a steady job. Career Builder lets people see my phone number and I got spammed by those insane people thinking I want to pay them to start a "promising" career. Please... spare me.

The town festival was over the weekend. We walked around the park in the middle of town looking at people's handmade crafts for sale. Same stuff as usual. The town next to us is having their BIG festival this week. That one is better cause they have carnival rides and great food. They also have a little craft sale section. Maybe I will get some of those soy candles. We are also going to the parade on Saturday. This is why I like fall.

My favorite soap opera, Passions, is not on our cable station anymore. They moved the show to Direct TV. So if I want it bad enough I will have to get DTV. Uhm no. Its just not justifiable to me to pay $40 more a month for DTV just to get one show. But I would just like to state for the record that I am very frickin pissed that I can't watch my show anymore. Frickin pissed. And I am not about to switch to watching some other lame soap. I liked Passions for a reason...because it was crazy and not like every other soap. I have tried watching the others, and I just couldn't get into them. I watched Passions from the beginning and I am sad now that its gone. I think I will write a letter, and an email.
