Well mom is gone..............and so is the sun. It went really well this morning with the exception of the fact that all 3 of the kids were up at 5:30 in the morning. So all 4 of us headed to the airport. For the most part there were only a few tears........which is amazing. Usually we are all bawling and it ends up being a very exhausting day. I know my tears will come later tonight, when it's all dark and I'll be feeling so alone, even though John is laying next to me. I know my mom was ready to come home, and I know my family in it's own way was ready for her to go home, but it still doesn't make me miss her any less. I think she has come to realize that we're meant to be here until we get a promotion to somewhere else. I'm so thankful for that, because it use to be so hard hearing her practically begging me to move home. I am so thankful to have my mom still living, because I know some day she won't always be just a phone call away. Julia over at Belle Papier just recently lost her mom, and she posted on her blog today about her, and I was bawling. I can't imagine not being able to just call up my mom anytime of the day. My heart goes out to everyone who has lost their mother, because I know a bond between a Mother and daughter is to be cherished forever.

So unfortunately with the sun being gone today, that means no photos of my cards, unless of course I can get my table cleaned up since I recently got an ott light and a special daylight light bulb for a lamp downstairs.........I might have to try that later today, after I'm feeling a bit better. Thanks for listening to me babble!! Hugs everyone.

Wow, I couldn't believe it! As I was going through my google reader and checking out all the updated blogs, I came across Chris' site, and she nominated me as a Rockin' Girl Blogger. I about fell off my chair. I have to nominate 5 other bloggers, but I swear almost every blog I go to has been tagged, so I will think about it tonight and send out the badge some other bloggers. I have one for sure that I know of, and I'm sure I can come up with a few more! It only gets better from here though, in my e-mail this morning, I had an e-mail that said "your a winner", now I almost sent this to the junk file, thinking it might just be a virus of some sort, but alas, it wasn't..............I won some blog candy! It's from Is it Tuesday yet ma. image

I can't wait to get this Yummo candy. Make sure you go and check out Denise's blog too, she does wonderful work. Thanks Denise! My mom is leaving tomorrow, the mood around the house today is pretty somber, I have to say. We have to leave the house tomorrow by 5:30 am to get her to the airport on time. Tears well up in my eyes just thinking about it. I hate this part. I am so ready to be closer to home. It will be a rough day tomorrow, we're hoping the kids won't wake up in the morning, because that always makes it harder for all of us...........Please don't take offense to this but I'm thinking I might have to make a few of my signature drinks "Scooby Snacks" back tomorrow afternoon, to help me get through the day, until John gets home.......LOL I have the Brickyard 400 to look forward too on Sunday, my girlfriend got me 2 of the most awesome tickets (FREE) a parking pass, a coupon for a free hat........I'm so excited, I didn't go last year and keeping my fingers crossed this might be the last year to go to the Brickyard, because we might not be here next year. GO KASEY KAHNE! # 9!

Yesterday I got to go and visit the new school that I will be working in, it's a brand new building and it is so nice. I think this year will be such a better year for me, I can tell just from the meeting yesterday that I'm going to get along with the teacher, and another bonus is that my girlfriend Deana, who've I worked with off and on all 4 1/2 years I've been working will be working in the same room again this year!

Well that's more then enough babbling for today, I plan on taking pictures of all the wonderful cards that I have made with my mom the last month or so.........I must have at least 30 or so, so keep your fingers crossed that the weather will be nice for some great pictures. I'll also put up the info on who made my gorgeous new blog banner, I just love it!

Well I have been stamping I promise, but it's just been in the evening with my mom. I have actually stamped quite a few cards and I promise I will get them posted. But time is running out on my visit with my mom, and I want to spend every minute I can with her. I don't know if we'll be able to see each other for christmas this year or not, and the thought of that brings tears to my eyes, even though she is still here now. Hubby put in an application for a job in Utah, which would only put us about 12 hours away from home in stead of 3-4 days away from home. I think my dad is more excited right now, probably because he's not here with the kids. He asks my mom every night if we've heard anything. LOL John did get a confirmation call that Utah received his application and what not, that's more then he got from Colorado when he put in a couple of applications. I think he said the job opening is posted until at least the end of July, but we're keeping our fingers crossed that they might close it early.

Cards coming soon, I promise.

What a wonderful Tribute

I got this from my husband at work, and definitely thought it was worthwhile to pass on!

Here SHE is, the USS New York, made from the World Trade Center!

USS New York

It was built with 24 tons of scrap steel from the World Trade Center.

It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists. It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft.

Steel from the World Trade Center was melted down in a foundry in Amite, LA to cast the ship's bow section. When it was poured into the molds on Sept. 9, 2003, "those big rough steelworkers treated it with total reverence," recalled Navy Capt. Kevin Wensing, who was there. "It was a
spiritual moment for everybody there."

Junior Chavers, foundry operations manager, said that when the trade center steel first arrived, he touched it with his hand and the "hair on my neck stood up." "It had a big meaning to it for all of us," he said. "They knocked us down. They can't keep us down. We're going to be back."

The ship's motto? "Never Forget"
