guttergirlz. bitch.


some pics from vbs, pool, jazz, etc. general summer mayhem.

i have been doing VERY little scrapbooking lately, and it's making me sad! i mean, i LOVE all the things about summer that keep me from scrapping (baseball, pool, JAZZ, or just being outside w/ the kids!) but i still miss it. i mean, between all that and trying to keep us from being buried alive by laundry, i just have hardly any time to devote to scrapping! and when i do have time, it seems like i'm just exhausted, or having scrapper's block or something! do any of you find yourselves having a similar problem in the summer??

some of it is blurry. i got all japanese gangsta at the end of the night (glow in the dark paint...i wasn't involved in any wet shirt kind of contest as suggested by one of my myspace friends!) there was a HUGE group of us at jazz. i'm not sure that the entire population of clarksville wasn't there!! it was the *worst* i'd ever seen it. sooo crowded! we got there an hour and a half early and were LUCKY that our friends had already saved us a spot! the kids had a blast, as usual. i LOVE the pic of them all huddled around the nintendo ds! just thought i'd give ya a glimpse into the awesomeness that is JAZZ!


i picked up a car charger for my new phone today, and i am ready to get on the damn road to NC!! i've had enough of baseball (those of you who know me know that this sounds crazy). but, yes, i've just had enough of the giant hot mess that is our baseball league this year. and the summer is my major opportunity to go and stay for a couple of weeks since i'm not working and eli is on summer break. just waiting for baseball to finish, though i don't know why. the coach's own son QUIT like 3 games ago. so, he comes to the games in street clothes to watch and we have to pull up AT LEAST 2 tee-ballers to play in every game now. i need to get the FIT down to I-40 and head east! i hope i remember to stop around mocksville and don't just keep going all the way to the beach. what a shame that would be!!

does anyone else ever feel as though their husbands create more of a mess than the kids??? i won't go into a whole tirade (jessi let me do that in her ear earlier...thanks!), but damn! i can't do it all by myself!

one of those days around this joint. i can totally foresee a glass of wine in my near future.
