12502 Kava Knoll
We have some furniture: two desks, a table and chairs, two rocking/swivel chairs, a toddler bed, some patio furniture, some BIG speakers..don't ask me what they are for (they are Miguel's), toys, books, videos, lots of misc stuff. OH and a trampoline with the enclosure for only $150 obo. The only catch with that is you have to haul it off yourself...either as it is or take it apart. We didn't want to have to do it because it took a long time! Hmmm..some other quilts...some other stuff I can't think of at this moment! LOL Come on by if you have a chance! Well, I need to get back to packing. Mikey is gone with my mom for the weekend so that we can get as much done as possible because Miguel got the weekend off. We will be back and forth between here and there. I hope to make a major dent in all the "moving" in these next two days. To make matters worse, I'm sick from my allergies and feel like crap and all I really want to do is take some medicine and lay on the couch, but I need to make the most of this time, so the being sick will just have to wait!! That's all for now!

Here are pics of a little "about me" mini book I made for my friend Lori's birthday on Wednesday. Some of the pics came out blurry, but I can't retake them because I already mailed it off to her. I really hope she likes it! Not much else going on here. On the moving front, we spent the weekend at my mom's and today I spent the day cleaning and moving stuff around to make room for our things. Good news...I have half of the livingroom to make my own scrappy space!! YAY!! Happy about that! I'm going to start packing stuff up this week and moving stuff over to my mom's a little at a time. We should be out of here by the 7th or 8th of June. I'm looking forward to moving back in with my mom. I love living with her and have missed that for a while. Plus Mikey is just so attached to her and just loves her to pieces! He is really going to love seeing her EVERY day! I think that the positive things definately outweigh the negative about this whole move. I just wish the "moving" part was over already! That's all for now! :)

We're Moving....


So...this time we really are moving. It seems that we are joining the masses of people having to give up their homes because unfortunately we just can't keep up with everything. I'm a little sad to be leaving. I kind of thought this would be our home forever and ever and Mikey would start school here too and all that stuff, but I guess God has different plans for us. I will miss my big house and of course my scraproom, but to be honest, I never really did like the idea of being WAY out here all by myself most of the time away from everyone I know. So maybe some good will come out of this. Well, I'm sure that whatever needs to come out of this will. I'm trying not to worry about it too much and leave it in God's hands, but I'm a big time worrier and it's a little hard for me. Maybe that's something I need to learn from this situtation.... I am not in control. I'm mostly worried about where Lij will go to school. We will be staying with my mom (thank God for her). How long, we have not yet decided. We have some options as far as Lij's school and we still have a couple of years before we have to worry about that for Mikey. Miguel and I still need to sit down and talk more and get some definite plans in order. I'm REALLY dreading the whole packing up and moving stuff. UGH...I never wanted to have to do that again, but here I am...doing it again. We'll be moving our internet service over there so I won't be without a computer...that's GOOD! LOL We still have to try and also figure out what we can fit into my mom's, what needs to go into storage and what needs to be sold. So on that note, if anyone is interested, we have a sofa and loveseat for sale. As well as a kitchen table and four chairs...not in the best condition..the top is all messed up and scratched on by the kids, we also have a refrigerator...about six months old...VERY know me! LOL Right now, that's all I know of that we have to get rid of. We might also have a yard sale in a couple of weeks to get rid of some stuff so I'll post in case anyone wants to come by and take a look. I'd really appreciate prayers right now that God will take us wherever we need to be. Thanks :)

Scrapapalooza :)

On Saturday, Chon and I spent the whole day scrapping! I got 11 LOs done and we were even able to squeeze in a little shopping trip to Big Lots and The Dollar some great scrappy deals :) We also got some Mc D's on the way back to the house. We had such a great time! I hope we can do it again really soon! Here are my LOs and a pic of the gorgeous roses Miguel got me for Mother's Day :)

Happy Mother's Day

To all the mothers out there, I hope you have a wonderful day filled with lots of love and family time! We won't be doing anything special that I know of. Lij is going to his dad's for the weekend and Miguel has to work, so I'll just be hanging out here at home with Mikey.

Tomorrow, I am going to scrap at Chon's house. The whole scrapping at 911 thing fell through because her van broke down, but at least I still get some kid free, scrap time and that's all that matters! So I guess that is my little "Mother's Day get away"...that's okay with me :)

Lij made me this cute little gift at school! I loved it! And even more when I saw that the flower was a PEN! It now has a home on top of one my tables in my scraproom! Mikey of course wanted it right away and had a huge hissy fit when I wouldn't give it to him! LOL

I also made these cute cards using nothing but Daisy D's scraps. One is for my mom and one is for Miguel's mom.

Well, that's all for now. LOTS of layouts to come soon!! Stay tuned! :)

this loveseat into my scraproom! LOL Last night I told Miguel about the idea of putting one of the sofas we have in the livingroom in my scraproom and before I had a chance to explain WHY, he said "okay, let's do" LOL Let me tell you, it was NOT easy! That sucker was HEAVY! And then Miguel let it go once and I caught it..with my shoulder! OUCH!! But we got it up in my room and at first, I didn't like how it looked, but I think it was only where we put it. So today, I rearranged some stuff and got rid of one of the smaller tables and I'm pretty happy with the way it looks now. I have an extra comforter on the loveseat right now because it's not clean (to my standards), but I want to get a slipcover for it..probably black. I like that we have somewhere other than my stools to sit on and that the kids or Miguel could sit there and watch a movie or something. I think I won't be able to rearrange my scraproom anymore, but that's okay! We are cropping on Saturday so I hope to have some new LOs to upload. So far, I have like 8 packed. Maybe I'll try to get at least two more because all I have to really do is glue them down and I don't want to just sit there like the last time because I was already done!
