pumpkins, memory cards, and roger staubach...

first off, mich had a field trip today. i brought owen (against my better judgement) and thought we'd hang out, take pics, look at stuff. well, pumpkin patches here leave much to be desired. we actually went to the farmers' market. pretty cool though, even the $80 pumpkins had me excited. owen lasted in the stroller all of 3 minutes. then it was off! i tried to get a pic...i was so excited that nobody else had found my stash of brand new batteries that i forgot to grab the memory stick out of the computer. oh well. my friend Mandi was there from the lss days and she let me use her gi-normous camera that i was so afraid to touch i think i only took 3 quick shots.

random pic of a layout i did at my scrap getaway at the beginning of the month (i know...that's the last time i did a page lo besides the SYC one)...


oh, and work is OK; it's my hours that suck. i did ask for them, but who really wants to work nights weds-friday then basically all day saturday and sunday? but, i am. gas cannot go down fast enough nor can mike's paycheck go up fast enough. and it could never be long enough before this election turns out the way i think it is going to...you know...when we're all in the dumps again anyway b/c we'll be waiting for our dear government to wipe out the last pennies from our wallets just so they can give them to someone who refuses to work crappy hours. gosh, i hope he doesn't tax the HUGE company i'm working for too much more or i won't have a job anyway.

seriously...how can anyone think that this approach works? no company, large or small is going to undermine its bottom line. if government raises taxes, businesses will simply cut jobs and/or raise prices. nobody ever gets jobs from poor people. and if everyone is poor then what? sit around and wait for the government and a loaf of bread. nice. and nobody has to be poor in the first place...work. again, it's called crappy hours that pay.

anywho, on to happier, less bitter news...i used to laugh in my sleep a LOT...not so much anymore until last night. i tried so very hard to remember what i was laughing at when i woke up. my mom was in it, then something about the fact that she couldn't say roger staubach's last name just had me cracking up! mich slept with us last night and i had everyone awake asking what the heck i was laughing at...it was too funny and i just couldn't stop laughing!

ugh. shower time then pick up time, then early dinner, soccer game, then work.

later kids!

Thank you. I was thinking the same thing. Hello...does this sound like socialism to anyone else?

Anyway, Glad you had fun at the Farmer's Market. Our patches aren't too cool either so Farmer's markets are awesome.

Is an $80 pumpkin something special, or is that a normal price?? Wow, we are lucky to have pumpkin patches everywhere here in Oregon! Love the LOs!

Love the LO's Liz! Glad you found a job. The hours may stink, but they work for you and the $$ will help. Plus you can 'get away' for a little while.

I love the layouts! You can usually find lots of cute girl ones, but I don't find many great boy ones! Thanks for commenting on my new blogspot page! I am still trying to learn my way around!

WHOA girl, I could probably mail you a pumpkin for less than that! That's awful!
Our gas is under $1 a litre now - yippee! Only cost me $30 to fill up my car yesterday - now that's more like it!
Yup those hours suck alright... hopefully some newer employees will push you up the ladder and into some better hours soon!!! Your layouts are fabulous darling!
