first day of orientation

I am definitely done with my first day of orientation... IT was soo long! Only 2 more days and one more ceremony and then the weekend and Monday is my first day of professional school! I got home from orientation and promptly ate some dinner and took a nap I was sooo tired! Then I have watched some TV and pretty much been lazy all evening... I need to get up and get my house cleaned since my WHOLE family will be here on Friday. Right now I am using my very expensive new computer from school... It's pretty cool, but not sure if it was worth $2500! However, it will be 'green' for the school year since all of our notes are on it, and I am all about being green! I am awaiting a shipment of scrapbook supplies from Oh my crafts, which is definitely one of my favorite online stores. I guess I am not going to have much time to scrap, but I will try to get some done during the year! I will have more time to blog since I will be on my computer all of the time at school now, so I hope I will have more followers soon! Thanks for reading!

feeling like i'm living in a 3rd world country...

Well it is officially Saturday... well Sunday now and I am so tired of feeling like I am living in a 3rd world country. Since the flooding that happened on Wednesday and Thursday we had 8 water mains break and there is a boil ordinance in effect until further notice. I have been boiling water to wash dishes, make food, and for the animals. I have been buying bottled water to drink as well. I am so tired of boiling water and not being able to open my mouth in the shower that will never take for granted fresh water again! And on top of the boil ordinance there is a serious conservation of water effort also going on, so we aren't supposed to use anymore water than we actually need for drinking and using the toilet! I know it could have been much worse for me since my house didn't sustain any damage from the water, however it still sucks! Needless to say I have been working the last 2 days and working at a restaurant during a boil ordinance is just dumb... I can't believe all of the people that come out for dinner in a time of emergency! Yesterday we served on plastic plates and with plastic silverware, today we served on regular flatware but with plastic silverware... I was bartending tonight and that was pretty much a joke since they sent the early out home before I even got there... So I pretty much got my butt handed to me all night. NO FUN! Well now I am home and almost done winding down after work but I have to get up in the morning for a double... blah.... anyways I am posting the layout I made this morning! I think it's way cute!

More layouts...

My applebuddies!


What a whirl-wind week! Ames, the town I live in, has been getting massive amounts of rain this week and yesterday the creek that runs through the town overran it's banks and caused massive flooding throughout the town. One of my best friends had to be evacuated from her apartment via boat with her little bunny in a basket! I spent the better part of 3 hours trying to reach her on the other side of the water! Eventually I was able to get her and bring her back to my house safe and sound. On top of the flooding we had a major water main break and now all of the faucet water is under a boil ordinance... That really sucks and I can't wait to be able to drink out of the faucet again!
Last weekend we went to Cedar Point, Ohio which is the best roller coaster park in the world!!! The 10 hour drive in a crowded car was the least favorite part of the trip, but having a great time was definitely worth it! Got some scrappin done this week, but definitely not enough to get caught up! Well since part of my town is still flooded I am planning a scrapping day and maybe if it cools down later some hammock time!Posting a couple of layouts I did on tuesday! Enjoy!
