The good, the bad, and the ugly

The Good:

I can't believe that this boy is 10!!! He is such an amazing kid, and I so don't deserve him. I hope that he knows he is my heart and soul. He truly deserves the best!

Here is a pic from his party, which was a hockey party of course. I talked him into having a floor hockey party instead of ice hockey, since not all of his buds can ice skate.

He's wanted a touch for a few months now. We had told him he would have to help pay for it, but then I HAD to just get it as a surprise. He looked in the bag before I had a chance to snap the pic, so here he is feigning surprise, LOL!

The Bad:

That would pretty much sum up my life at the moment. Family issues, scrap stuff, the list just goes on. I did have a little run-in with my 2 holly trees in my yard. I will say that neither of us won and tree-trimming is not on my list of skills. I went a little far with the trimming, to say the least.

The Ugly:

While I was trimming said holly trees, I felt this little brush at my ear. I assumed it was a bug and swatted it away. Then I started feeling fluttering down in my ear. I knew a moth had flown into my ear. I got online and started looking for remedies to get the bug out--warm water should do the trick. I had Matt fill up my ear, which was quite the party b/c it creeps me out to put stuff in my ear, and sure enough the bug floated right up. Not the moth that I was sure was in my ear, but an itty-bitty knat. It sure made a lot of ruckus for such a small knat.

Wanted to share a LO as well. This is one of me and my furbaby, who is going to be the death of me. I used the magistical memories heart border here along with the yummy studio calico kit to create it. Magistical is having a huge, HUGE sale, so head over there and pick up some chipboard.

Speaking of SC, there was also this which helped me get through my crummy day yesterday. I was so siked!!! (can't believe I just used the work siked)

Thanks for stopping by. I am going to do a giveaway here shortly. I am currently cleaning out my supplies and have some yummy stuff that could be yours, so make sure to check back!
Pin It!
