Ok, I know it has been a while but summer is ALWAYS busy... we are now into september where I might get back into a routine. I've started going to the gym with Cody... one day down...hahaha that's a start. I've just finished baking the BEST pumpkin chocolate chip bread EVER. And I even started going to wedding receptions again, two in the same day! HAH and those are thefirst since my own...ok wait I went to one last september..but that was more of just a family dinner.

This 'school' year seems its going to be a lot more productive for me than last. I'm feeling better about myself and my talents. I think I'm even going to try to make time for some sewing...hahah we'll see how that goes... I also have been doing some research on how to use my beloved
camera!! I just have all of these great ideas that I hope I follow through with!

Here are some photo's of what has been going on with us lately:

Cody's self haircut...he was not impressed with me taking pictures of this. But after all the arguing of him trying to get me to cut it HIS way and on HIS time, he deserved it! He's lucky I still cut it that night and didn't make him go the whole next day with it like that!

MAGRATH DAYS!!! This was how happy we were to be going to the parade, bright and early!

Some camping down in the States and boating with the Gibb clan...good times on the tube.

Oh ya, and we also took a HUGE detour through Glacier National Park...we got to see these little fella's and Logan's Pass!

and last but NOT least... my pumpkin chocolate chip bread!! mmmmm SOOO good!!!

ok time for bed, I really shouldn't even have a blog because I never go on here unless I really want to share this hahah

JUST One of those days...

Ok so I've been contemplating over this post for the past few days...weeks actually. I just couldn't find a good way to write it without coming out and just saying it like it is...without it looking like another one of those "feel sorry for me posts" BUT I can't help it... so here it is and you'd BETTER FEEL SORRY FOR ME.

Lately I've been feeling neglected. By everyone. I looked up the definiton of neglect: Not pay proper attention to; disregard. And disregarded describes exactly how I feel. Throughout the years you go through different experiences and you find out who really cares and who doesn't. It's good to have those true friends and family, but you look back at some of the people you spent so much time with or someone you got along so well with and then in the end you aren't really friends anymore. And what was all of that time and effort for? Nothing.

I've been trying to set things right or forgive and forget and so far it's just backfired. Somethings just go on for so long that you don't even know where it all started and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it. I'm beginning to realize that I'm wasting my time and I should give up. Those people that I may have WRONGED have just disregarded me. I'm being ignored.

I'm so excited about this weekend. Now that I'm "From Magrath" I feel so excited for Magrath Days and seeing all of the family. It's been a while since I've seen a lot of Cody's Aunts/Uncles/Cousins but it'll be good to spend time with some family. I'm hoping that the hype of it all will turn my summer around and I can just forget about all those worries that I've been thinking about.

Anyways, Since I got invited to everyone else has...I've been wasting a lot of time on it. I guess I'll just make a new board and post things that I like in it....that should make me feel better!

Ok now that it's all off my mind and out here on the web...I promise to make a more positive post next, for all those "readers" out there HAH!

I also just wanted to share my CRAVE right now...

YES!!! Chocolate covered RAISINS!!!!


I just LOVE thunder and lightening storms. I wish I had my own house where I could sit on the front porch and just watch the lightening strike through out the sky. I love when the power goes out and we get to pretend it's the "olden days" where we light candles (or use flashlights). No internet connection and no TV. Just the quiet and nothing to consume your time! These past couple nights have been a thrill. It's just so exciting when the lights flicker and you don't know whether you'll have to go to work the next day or not. Secretly I always hope the power will stay out all night long and all morning so I won't have to go to work... if Cody were to read this post he would probably kill me! As much as I love the lightening, I so badly hope that it doesn't hail and wreck the crops!! Anyways, for all those storm lovers out there, enjoy it while it lasts!! hah xoxo

Get with the program....

Yes, I realize that I created this blog and then never wrote in it again. All of you followers thought you were going to have something fun to read from me every hear and there and here I left you hanging.... I missed Halloween (don't be sad or anything because we didn't even dress up), I skipped Christmas...but if you check my facebook I did post some pictures. blah blah blah I could go on forever about the things I've missed but here's the update:

We have now moved from Raymond to Magrath. The move has been great and people have been so welcoming! We live in a sixplex that everyone here knows as "the seniors place" really is only Seniors and us. There is one guy above us named Andre. He's a frenchman and he's crazy, and his wife's name is Roxanna. I haven't ever met her but Andre has been over a few times to say hello and introduce himself, he brought cookies once, and he also showed us some of the 'secrets' of our place! We're all moved in, but not completely organized yet. Hopefully I can keep up this blogging and soon enough when we're all organized I will post some pictures!

I know this was short and sweet, but that's all for now! Ta-Ta!

No, I can't believe it either.

Well here I am, yes it is 5 AM and I'm awake...WIDE AWAKE. I'm ticked. You want to know why? Of course I'm going to write up the whole story....for everyone to see.. I'm just not ready to type it out yet, I'm too mad.

....Ok I'm ready. Yes I have been sitting here fuming for an hour. Ugh it's so stupid. If Cody knew I were out here fuming on the couch over this still he would kill me, or divorce me, or leave me...who knows. He would do something anyways, because this isn't normal behavior.

Alright here it goes.... I joined BuckToBid last night. It wasn't a spur of the moment thing either. I knew exactly what I wanted and why I was going to gamble the 50 dollars away on some stupid Auction. I watched the item for a week on the wish list. I even voted for it on occassion...WAITING for it to go on the auctioned list. Yesterday afternoon, my dreams came true. There it was staring me in the face, BEGGING me to buy bids so I could win it. And I was! going to win it that is! So I bought 60 bids, enough to waste a few but still have enough to win it. What is it you ask? A camera. A stupid Canon EOS Rebel XS 10.1mp DSLR camera. I know, I'm gay.

I sat there for half an hour before I called Storm to give me some pointers on how the whole thing worked, and how to win the item of my dreams. He's won before, a gift card off of I knew it wasn't a scam. It was an achievable goal to reach and I failed. I didn't get the camera. Dorothy Ann Hoare did. I sat there for three hours wasting half of my bids for her to win MY CAMERA. After I watched the clock reach 0:00.00 I said a bad word to Cody and then started crying for a few minutes. Only a few minutes though, not that long. I was pretty upset though. Apparently more upset than I thought because up until the point of 5 AM I was dreaming about that stupid Camera and the Auction. Re-living the nightmare, was a nightmare. I kept living it differently over and over again trying to change the outcome. Nightmaring about the message I was going to write to Steele and Shelly, telling them how much I hate Steele's stupid BuckToBid Deal. And telling him to get another Camera up for auction quick before I drive myself insane researching about the camera. Well it's too late for that, I woke up blazing hot and fuming mad over my stupid dream...came out here on the couch and for the past hour and a half that's exactly what I've been doing. Researching the camera. I've found out that the XSi, the Canon EOS Rebel XS 10.1mp DSLR camera's big brother, is a better camera for only roughly about $70 more.

Anyways, what do I know about camera's....that's another reason for this post. For all of you PHOTOGRAPHERS out there reading this blog right now, you'd better give me some information on what camera is the best so I can get Steele to put one on the wish list so I can use up the rest of my bids, and actually WIN this time!

blah, I better get back to bed before Cody notices that I'm out here... and you'd BETTER NOT TATTLE ON ME. I'm sure you wouldn't want to be on my bad side, nope! not after this incident!
