Fix it friday

I am partaking in I Heart Faces/ Fix it Fridays where they give you an image and you edit it. I think it's a lot of fun to touch up and mess around with a photo trying to create something new.


I messed around in Picasa and lighten it up and then I went to picnik and whitened her teeth a little..

I have lightroom 30 day trial right now till I buy it next week but I need to learn how to use it lol..


So I am pretty sure I have an ear infection...and something wrong with my head..it hurts on the side and I can't pinpoint the area but it throbs and my ears hurt deep down inside..(hard to explain). I have no motivation to even get dressed or anything..and I am tired! On top of that my nose is stuffed up so I can't breath and..I AM SO SICK OF BEING SICK...thought I would emphasis how I felt..

On a better note. I am on book 3 yes you heard me right, I finished book 2 in one day..addicted I know...so I have something to keep me occupied while couch resting..I hope I feel better my head feels like it's going to explode!

Ants be gone~!

Well I have seen 2 ants in the past 3 days...yay...I sprayed the crap out of all the corners or the house and set out 8 ant traps!!! Keep your fingers crossed cause I almost lost it the other day! On a happier note I am halfway through the second book "new moon" and I love it..I started it 20 mins before bed last night and have been reading it all morning.. I think I am getting what Zack had so I haven't been feeling real good...what a better way to spend it but reading and putting puzzle upon puzzle together with your son! Any who..I might try and go for a walk later it is simply "spectacular"! Well get out and enjoy the the sun..and if you haven't read the twilight series yet...READ IT

Favorite B&W entry

Posted by Picasa
A new site I joined has us posting our favorite B&W photos here is one I did real quick and thought it turned out pretty good..head over to "We Picture This" and join it's an awesome site!

Vent!! (cussing...you have been warned)

OK seriously I am about to rip someone a new asshole! We had new neighbors move in last week next to us and they thought it would be real fucking cool to move in at 10:00 pm at night..and were loud and yelling...grrr...needless to say Boone got woke up..well guess what today some frigging old people are moving in below us and I put Boone (tried to) down for a nap at 1:30 and he kept getting woke up and could never get fully asleep!!! Well I just NOW got him to sleep grrr...frustrated and pissed because I hate living in a damn apartment. No one has the decency to be quiet..I get so pissed...ON top of that...we have ants...not small sugar ants but big ones..and not a tone but at least 10-15 a day I have to kill....I HATE BUGS anyone who knows me knows I fucking hate bugs...and Zack keeps saying I don't want to hear there's nothing I can do..we can't bomb it cause we are here and we can't spray everywhere cause we are here!!! So until we can be gone for a day then we have to deal with it..and now Boone is up again what was that 5 mins...I am losing my damn mind...this is suppose to me my time to unwind...seriously if I see another damn ant....I'm going to break something...I wish we could buy house right now..perfect time to do it but we just don't have the money..which is so frustrating as well..I am sick of worrying about damn money and feeling like I am spending "zacks" money and not ours..and feeling like I am not contributing...grrr...ok enough

Ok update...member how I just said if I see another ant I will freak well I just saw 10...there was 5 klumped up on my cupboard so I went and opened all of them and another couple came out of those then 3 were coming down the wall by the sink...HONESTLY come on!!!!! I do not have a dirty house what so ever..I don't get it...I am so pissed.....grrrrrrrr

So the party yesterday for Boone was a huge success..Everyone showed up and actually a few that weren't going to did..Like my mom!! I was alittle nervous to have her over but everything went really well..she just had surgery about two weeks ago but was able to make it..and I really appreciated her putting in the effort..she hadn't seen Boone since he was about 4 months old so..it was long overdue. She is going to try and come over every other weekend or something. Then eventually when I feel comfortable enough we will go visit her. She is doing good so it seems and I am surprised and happy. Boone got tons of toys, I will take some pictures tomorrow..I am dead yesterday wore me out and then I came home and cleaned the house, did the laundry, went and got dinner, then like an idiot stayed up till 1 watching point break lol...then I was back up at 7 am..so right now I SHOULD be taking a nap...so I will edit some pictures tonight from manito get those up and take some ones of his toys and get some birthday pictures up!

Hope everyone had a great weekend..I love the rain but I am over it now..Bring on the SUN!

Good Morning

Well this is the first time I am up before 7 ick..but I better get use to it..my school schedule starting in April is 7:30-8:30 class then go pick up B and come home to watch a little guy the same age as B. Then class online whenever and lastly another class from 6:30-8:30....so I am going to be busy..but it will be good for me to get out of the house...I am going to miss B though I won't get to help with baths at night..hopefully I can get him to stay up a little later and I can be there for when he goes to bed..we will have to see if I can get his schedule to change.

YAY today is the first day of SPRING!!!! YES....not sure if that is suppose to me it will be warm from now on and is required to but hey it's officially spring...meaning beautiful flowers should be out soon...and you better believe I will be out capturing those pictures!

Today it is suppose to be 58 degrees which is warm for what we have had around here so I think Boone and I might go up to manito this time and play...pictures to come later

I LOVE THIS SONG! Just alittle something to get your morning going...he..he..he
