Spring...I can almost feel & see it!

Yay! The snow if finally melting away! And that means the truck is very dirty. BUT, I did go for car wash yesterday so it's looking so fresh and so clean! =)

I haven't done much in the creativity dept lately. I do have a few projects coming up that I need to get completed this April. First, creating one of my bestie's SURPRISE 30th birthday invitations (shhhhhh!) and second, my goddaughter's 1st birthday invitations. I want to get started on both but I still have to go out and buy my supplies for the first project, and i'm still waiting for the shipment of my second project. =(

As for my family life, Arianna is 7.5 months old now! EEEEK! She is my little pig (or my little tiger since she's Year of the Tiger) and eats alot and growls alot. LOL. It's funny. But she's also very attached to me. *sigh* I love it and hate it. Well, difficult for me to do things. But, she's still a doll. <3
Ethan, on the other hand, is just growing! I seriously was cutting his fingernails the other day and I just noticed how big his nailbeds were and how big his hands have gotten. WTF!? Hahaha. Wow. No way. I gotta face reality!
And yay, my mom is coming home from rehab in less than 2 weeks! And she's doing wonderful! She's walking, has regained her strength back on her left side and isn't so dizzy any more. But, it's still alot of adjustments when she gets home. Something I know will be hard for her to do. =/

Ok, that's it for now. Off to do some cleaning & enjoy my cup of coffee.

"Just one of them days"...


Ahh, I sing this little ditty (sung by Monica back in the 90s) whenever I feel super stressed or super sad or super annoyed and unhappy.

"It's just one of them days,
When I wanna be all alone.
Its just one of them days,
When I gotta be all alone.
It's just one of them days,
Don't take it personal.
I just wanna be all alone,
and you think I treat you wrong."

I don't want to be self-absorbed or selfish or feel self-pity, but it really is ONE OF THOSE DAYS when I just feel like the weight of the world is on my shoulders. I hate feeling like this. Y'know? It's the accumulation of caring for my wonderful & adorable kids, the upkeep of all the house stuff (and bills) everyday, caring for my awesome mom, trying to make EVERYONE happy...it just affected me today.

I NEED A VACATION. I just NEED and WANT some space. Just to be alone and relax and NOT THINK. Just one day is all I need. To do as I please.

But, it's not possible. Too much to do and responsibilities. *sigh*

I'm just grumpy & jealous. Jealous for all my friends who have gone or are going or are on a trip somewhere far away. I want to go to Mexico or Greece or Costa Rica or Orlando or the Dominican. =( I got dressed up to meet up with my co-workers/awesome friends for a going-away party and was ALMOST on my way to meet them at a bar, but I backed out and just stayed home.

*sigh*

At least I have had the chance to scrapbook a few layouts & finish up a baby album for a friend. That was helpful, creative therapy.




Arianna's 6th month layout! Finally have an excuse to use butterflies & hearts together.

A little Valentine's Day layout with me & my loves.


More butterflies & hearts! Arianna's 5th month layout.
Ok. Enough venting. Time to sleep & listen to this song once more.
