Good Scrapbook News and Computer Whoes....

I have been having a hard time just getting motivated to scrap lately. So I decide that I would just jump right in. I registered for the Bad Girls Top Designer challenge today. I am excited because I think this is going to give me the creative push I need to start scrapping more. I use to be able to do a page a night now I am lucky if I produce a page a week. I just have so much going on I just don't feel motivated. But after entering this contest I foresee some fabulous pages coming soon. OK so about that Pink Dell I ordered at the beginning of the month. This thing has been on back order since I ordered it from Best Buy. I call on Tuesday and they could give me an answer as to when I would have the computer in my hand so I canceled my order. I was so pissed off. What do they mean they don't know when the computer will ship out. Luckily I saw a similar computer on Walmart.com and order that one. I was able to order the yellow one which is the color I wanted in the first place. I just called again today and I should have the computer in my hand by Tuesday. I can't wait. I want to be able to surf the net anywhere and anytime. I also wanted to say congratulations to Vee for making it as a '09 Memory Makers Master. I am so happy for her she really does deserve this honor.

No School Thanks to Fay ......

Well we were all set to go to school today but they Tropical Storm Fay came along. So no school for the kids and no work for me. Which I think is good because I feel like I need another day to rest. Let me recap my weekend for you. Friday night I got three tickets the the Monster Truck Jams at the Bank Atlantic Center, so I took the kids. They really enjoyed the show. I really couldn't get into the whole Trucks running over cars thing but it was fun to watch the kids faces. Then Saturday we went to the Museum of Science and Discovery & IMAX. We watched a movie about an African Safari and then spent a little time in the Museum. It's always nice when you can incorporate learning with fun.
Then Sunday we spent some time at the beach. It was very refreshing. The weather was perfect. There was a light breeze. Not to hot and not to cold. I am so glad we went. I took a long walk to clear my head and get ready for the new school year.
Update: School will not start until Wednesday.

School Starts Soon

Wow, I can't believe it. The summer is done. I feel like I really didn't do anything. I did take the kids to Disney so technically I did do something. But other than that the time just seemed to fly by. Monday they start school. So this weekend is all about the kids. We are going to the IMAX to watch a 3-D Movie tomorrow and after I get me hair done I will be taking them to lunch. Then Sunday we go to the beach. I won't forget to take my camera with me. So I will have some fun pics to scrap.

Speaking of scrap check out this cute layout I did of Niah. I love it. I found the quote on the Internet. Love the layout but for some reason it took me four days to create. Something like this use to only take a couple of hours. No sure what is going on with my creative juices.

Also want to share my good news. I ordered this little baby last week.

It is on back order to I won't get it until late next week. I really wanted the yellow one but that one was sold out. I am so excited to have a laptop again. And now the kids can have a little bit more access to the desktop without me having a fit because now I know that if something happens I still have another computer to use.

New Hair

Well I went for it. Just went to the salon and chopped my hair off. I needed something new. I am still trying to get use to it being so short but I have to admit I am really liking it.
Also scrapped the first Disney picture. My favorite of them all.
Also, been feeling in the mood to do some redecorating around the house. Haven't started yet but thinking about painting my bed room. Turquoise and Brown are the colors I am leaning towards. I will let you know when I start.
