Fires, Winds, and Smoke Oh My!!!

This was a picture of my street yesterday!
Me and Reggie came home to this Sunday evening after a beautiful weekend in San Diego. On our way home from San Diego, we drove through the horrible fires in San Diego / Poway area..it was horrible! So when I got home, was clueless of the fire in Lake Arrowhead...too close for comfort. As you can see the smoke in the background of the pics and how strong the winds were to blow down these elm trees.
4 years ago we had to deal with the Waterman Canyon fires when we had to evacuate...
Well it is Tuesday morning and thank God that winds have calmed down slightly in my area, but still really windy in others. I just pray that winds do not kick up bad enough where the fire changes direction and crawls over the mountain in back of my house. It's funny because you really don't know what to grab when you are forced to evacuate in 15 minuyes. You really can't say what youwould do until you are in that situation, believe me when I say...its kinda weird how that happens.
My thoughts and prayers go out to all families who may be affected by this fire and who may have lost their homes and or businesses or have been threatened. May God bless you all...and whoever is setting these fires, may they rot in you know where!

She Got her Ear Rangs!!!!

Well she did it! I have to admit, she was a soldier! I was real nervous about finally getting it done...i'm all frantic and forgot the dang pacifier at home...realized it when were half way to the mall. Daddy said she wouldn't need it and he was right! She didn't!
The right ear was easy breezy...only flinched byt the pic to the left here was after the left ear..I think it was the noise. But she popped her collar, well her hoodie and was good to go!
Then all of the sudden she copped this dang diva attitude, like, "Where's my water!?" I was like what the heck!? Didn't have any naps..was up till about 11ish...Dad finally put her to sleep with the Jungle Book doing the monkey dance...whatever that was! I put them both out my bedroom, I was pooped man! But she looks so freakin cute! I love her!

Today I went with a group of my Sorors to go see Tyler Perry's new movie, "Why Did I Get Married?" PLEASE GO SEE THE MOVIE!!! Excellent movie, I expected no less. I was just really hoping it was all what it was hyped up to be, and of course it was! Great actors, great story line. I am not going to say too much about the movie here in case you did not see it...go see the movie. Very emotional movie....what a genius Tyler is! You go boy!

Words of Wisdom...noted from Maya Angelou

In April, Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was "exciting." Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day...like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."

"I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life'."

"I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance."

"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."

"I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision."

"I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one."

"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone."

"People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."

"I've learned that I still have a lot to learn."

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

I'm Dying Here!!!

I am really trippin here. I am participating in a No Shopping Challenge on my Yahoo group and Lord am I having a hrd time!!! I really feel that now my mind is playing tricks on a sista! Big time! Everywhere I go I see cool stuff! Stuff is just calling my name! "Trisha...., Trisha....!!!"
I know some of my favorite LSS have had some new product arrive and I can't even go look at it because I am weak! So I am really trying my best to just stay away!!! I stay away from the scrapbook section at Target as well. I say to myself, "Well, it won't hurt to look.." Damnit! yes it will hurt me to look! Who am I fooling!? Hello! And why has the damn dollar bins have so much cool stuff I want!? They had some pretty cool ribbon, albums, etc.

There are advantages and disadvantages...

Advantages: Well it will force me to use what I have in my stash! You know I am a professional collector right? Yeah..I have a crap load of stuff...Well SO FAR...I have done well! I just can't wait till this mess is over, cause its giving me a headache!

DISADVANTAGES: Okay...at the end of this challenge..the Ontario Scrapbook Expo is coming up! So what do you think I am gonna do? I will TRY and contain myself! After that SoCal Shop Hop you would think that I don't need anything else....well you know me! It's like freakin CRACK! LOL!

Lord Jesus help me...

National Card Making Day

Today was fun! I had a good time today making cards in honor of National Card Making Day!
Today, myself, Nancy, Alondra, Jennifer, Tomasa, Holly and Sylvia...and Baby Fiona made cards and scrapbooked today. We had a lot of fun as usual, lots of snacks as I wouldn't expect any less. I have never really took a plunge in card making but I thinkI did pretty well to not make cards on the usual. I made some Christmas cards for the holidays coming up and some Thank You cards which will always be in handy!

We scrapped from about 1:00pm - 9ish...yeah we are die harders! LOL!

So if any of you ladies are reading this, thank you for coming out! Thanks Nancy for taking the long trip and bringing sweet little Baby Fiona! She is getting so big and cute! Hopefully I will see you again this coming Monday! If not, we shall see each other again soon!

Making cards is not a hard task. It will also help diminish the huge "SCRAP" bin of scraps I have...left over from pther projects that I swear I will reuse! So, I will definatelt be making a committment to myself for trying harder on maximizing my purchases and use everything I buy! Since the No Shopping Challenge on our Yahoo board, it has really help me realize that I do have a lot of stuff! I just need to utilize what I have! But its like any scrapper on crack! We need a fix! Anyway, it's late, and I think I am getting into another dangerous topic...let me go before I write another few paragraphs on me being a professional collector of scrap items!

Goodnite Peeps!

Wednessday Night Woes!

He wants my insurance money! It happened just like in the movies!
Okay, this is kind of a funny story, even more so, because I was wondering what my next blog entry would be...and here we are!

Well Wednessday evening around 11ish...I was on my laptop as usual minding my business instant messageing some friends and Reggie is watching a movie. He was being a cool husband and decided to get some Dibs (new age Bon-Bon's) into a little bowl for us to share....
So, I'm poppin em' back to back...maybe had 5....until my mouth got all tingly...
The same kind of tingly feeling I get when I have an allergic reaction to peanuts or seafood! So, I tell Reggie, "Babe! I think there was a peanut in here! I think I ate it!" So, needless to say, the feeling intensified within minutes, I am in the bathroom, rinsing my mouth out, brushing my teeth, trying to get rid of all remnants of the peanut that was aaccidently in my ice cream!

I'm in the bathroom, frantically trying to rince it all out, while Reggie is by my side making sure I am okay but in the same breath, "Babe! We should sue!" So, I am like, "Boy be quiet! Go get me the box!" I wanted to see the box because you know a lot of times when you go for ice cream they have to put the disclaimer about allergies (peanuts). So I read it and it does say the disclaimer and it says that there are almonds in the ice cream! So I am like "WHAT!?" I turn the cannister around only to see the words, "Nestle Drumstick" written on the front of the box! So I am yelling, "REGGIE!!!!!! YOU GOT THE WRONG KIND!!!"

Okay, so he called himself replacing my Nestle Crunch Dibs with the Nestle Drumstick. The only thing they has in common was that the logo for both was red, white and blue and both made by Nestle! So he picked up the wrong one without reading the lable carefully! So, I am really frantic now! I'm thinking I ate just one little measly peanut, when I actually ate more than that! Within a few more minutes, the feeling intensifies even more! My throat is beginning to become numb, my lips are swelling and my eyes are itching!!! My baby is dead to the world sleeping the night away, I have to go to ER! OMG! CRAP! Last time this happened, there was a peanut on the bottom slice of my pizza and just went to bed hoping I would be fine in the morning....NOT! Last time I looked like an oversized chipmunk! It was so uncool! So I did not want a repeat of what happened last year so I had to go to the hospital!

At this point, Reggie is feeling completely horrible! =( I kept teasing him asking if he wanted my insurance money!? He said it wasn't enough! Sucker! I been giving him a hard time ever since...trying to kill me!

So a shot in my right butt cheek later, and a strong dose of Benedryl, I got sent home...
Another close call....he tried to kill me yall! LOL!
