inspirations...

on scrapaddict.com there is a photo a day challenge going on right now & today's challenge was to take a photo that had the meaning "in living color"...this was the shot i got yesterday-

she was playing w/ jordan's barbie car & was right by the window in the dining room...i don't believe that i had any special settings- it just turned out this way. love when that happens.

i think we finally have a break through w/ brinley & her "attitude". a while ago i was online looking @ the med's she takes & one of the side effects for her nebulizer steroid was extreme mood swings & upset easily. she was doing 2 treatments/ day but since she was able to keep her numbers up in the 200's we took the morning treatment away & just do one before bed. what a whirl wind of difference. no abrupt outbreaks of attitude & she doesn't get upset @ the drop of a hat anymore. so glad to have made this discovery.

my dad gave his notice @ his job...there was a pretty heated discussion & my dad quit...then thought about it for 5 hours & then returned. everyone had cooled down & my dad told his boss that he would give him his 2 weeks notice. he mentioned that he wanted to be in MT by this time next year anyways....BIG STEP! so his boss said...well why don't you just stay until then & apologized to my dad. dad is suppose to call me today so we can work on a second version of his resume. buck got GOOD word yesterday from a "client/customer" that does the same line of work & said they are mad for help up here...so we're going to revise the resume & i'm going to take it in for him. i can't believe this is happening!! i can't even begin to express how excited i am to have my parents live CLOSE to us now. they miss out on so much of these girls' lives & now in less than a year...they'll be attending jordan's soccer games. it may even happen sooner if the timing is right. now....how can i convince these sisters of mine? i know for a fact that Misty, Todd & Aspen will stay put- mostly i believe for the weather & his job. Brandy....maybe someday eventually. Crystal & Bryan....hopefully soon after my parents. Crystal is lots like me...can't live w/o parents! :) she & i are becoming more the same as we grow older. & one thing is certain...can't wait for her to move up here so i have a scrappin sister w/ me. :) we have so much fun together scrappin! endless laughing!

speaking of scrapbooking....it is a month away that i will be in big sky with my best friends....just the 4 of us...maybe 5 if aimee can make it. i will be in heaven...all my best friends....together....no drama....hands at work & no kids! i'd better get to pre-planning those pages!

I love that you are so close to your family. I hope all goes well and they can move sooner than they planned for you.

What the EF when did the whole thing with dad happen? I'm so out of the loop and i live a half hour away... kinda makes me sad... i wish that i could come see you guys also but i just can't miss out on work since rent and everything is freakin expensive... i'm going into Front Range tomorrow to see about classes. I have to take 3 prereq classes in order to even be considered for the Vet Tech program, and they only take 24 students per time i guess, which kinda sucks but oh well
