I survived

The dentist that is yay. Bad news is I have to go back next month. He popped a temporary filling in so no more pain, but next month the tooth will be coming out :( Turns out that whilst it is savable with a root canal, my wisdom tooth is pushing up under it, so would have to come out down the track anyway. Slightly relieved about the cost saving for getting it pulled as compaired to the root canal. At the same time this tooth is being pulled I am also having a root canal started on my front tooth, that one thankfully is worth saving, but the cost, well lets just say I won't be scrapbook shopping for a while.

So onto other news, on the great stakes I finished my 10th unit for my TAFE course yesterday yay. I have 3 units left to complete, all of which I have started, so hoping it will all be finished soon.

Today was slightly busy, made 2 cards and altered a coaster, had to pick up Terese and Kane from school, then bring them here, cause I wanted to print some photos and my laptop wasn't co-oporating. Then I went to go get the photos, pumped up our car tire (we got a flat yesterday so put the spare on it was low on air), then dropped the kids home. Then it was off to gym for 2 hours eek. It is very busy around the gym, DFO (direct factory outlet) just opened, and during the day they even had police there directing the traffic. I'm glad I went at 5pm to gym when it's just closed, but still a lot of traffic then.

Oh have myself a gym achievement to, I've managed since last week to stay on the stepper machine for 30 mins straight at the highest setting. I'm doing the machine now at least 4 times per week so that I don't loose that ability hehe. And 2 little bits to brag, 1 - was told the other day by a lady I had just met that she was amazed at how powerful I am in boxing, as I did a double class, (basically in 1 hour doing twice the amount of boxing everyone else did), and I stayed consistent with my moves, and the effort I put in (I didn't slack off), and 2 - found out the reception ladies were gossiping about me with my personal trainer, was all good gossip though, they were talking about my weight loss, and how good I'm looking.

On the actual weight loss, I've lost 21kgs :) so am very happy with that. Would like to get another 10kgs off, though my PT is hinting towards me going into maintenance mode. Unfortunately I feel I'm begining to plateau. My weight has stayed the same for the last 3 - 4 weeks just having slight up and down moves, even though I've had a lot more exercise for the last 2 weeks. But will see how I go when I weigh myself on Sunday.

So to some pics:

First up is the LO I didn't get to show the other day, this is Erika and Hafiz, my husbands youngest sisters children, this LO is for Groovie Java Scraps mini challenge. Was so hard, but the outcome was great.

My niece Terese turns 11 on Sunday *sob* she's not a baby anymore, anyway I made this to go with her birthday present.

Oh and this is her birthday card.

And this card I also decided to make at the same time.

Am hoping this weekend I can get some LO's done, I got some photos printed. But will also be busy have to do a bunch of updating for the forum I mod on, in their kitchen section.

Well that's it from me today, short short post.

Happy November

So I'm as always late with my entries. I think Ed's asked me about 10 times since my last post if I've updated this thing. :) But at least it didn't take me 4 months lol.

So nothing much has been happening in the life of me. We've been back from my parents for 2 weeks now (I swear time just flies by). And I've been slacking off at TAFE. I know I should just pull my head in and finish my course, but I just can't seem to pull myself out of bed in the morning, or even look at my books. Annoying thing is now I have 4 weeks to finish it all, so I'd better get in and get it done. Says to self **you will go to TAFE as often as possible for the next 4 weeks, and you WILL stay the whole time**

Wednesday this week will be a scary day for mwah. I have a dentist appointment at 12.15pm, and I'm freakishly afraid of dentists! Like I was seriously starting to hyperventilate just making the appointment. I'm even scared of getting my teeth cleaned. It's ironic isn't it, I have horrid teeth, and I'm scared of the dentist! I bet if my teeth were pefect I wouldn't be scared to go. So anyway it's 36 hours and 5 minutes away (yes I'm counting down). I'm scared.

So I've done some scrapping this week, actually I've done 3 LO's and altered a cheese board in the last week and a half. That's a record I think for the last few months lol. The 3rd LO I'll have to show next time, cause I've yet to photograph it, and it's night time (need day light).

I took this photo of my 2nd sisters 2 kiddies back in Febuary. Kane has such a fake photo time smile, where as Terese will be natural and do whatever her lil heart pleases, plus she was getting sick of the camera by that time (I'd taken about 500 shots of her).

This LO is of DH and I at Cape Hillsborough. It's just north of Mackay. I swear the sand on that beach is the nicest I've ever seen in my life, it's like a silvery colour, I wanted to take it home lol.

And finally my altered cheese board. I made this for a friend (obviously her name is Mandy). I'm giving it to her tomorrow, and eekk I realy hope she likes it. I've never actually altered anything for someone I'm not related to (except the coaster for the swap thing, but that doesn't count).

I'm eagerly awaiting a parcel from Blue Bazaar! I went a bit overboard with ordering (ended up spending $70 eek), and can't wait to see my new goodies. I got 3 new rub-ons from October Afternoon, plus a few of their gorgeous papers, some thickers (chipboard and foam), MM felt flowers, and shimmer alphas (was hoping to get some more noteworthy papers but they aren't in there yet), and I got a bunch of the new papers from Sasafrass Lass (I hope I spelt that right), I got some from all 3 sets, but most are from the Owl Pals, cause that one is just plain gorgeous.

Also to make the shopping time even better I'm going to Scrapbook City sometime between tomorrow and Thursday! Hehe but I think DH will put me on a scrapbook buying ban after this.

Oh and to show Kane can smile normally:

Isn't he just *handsome*

That's it from me, since it's 12.30am! 35 hours and 45 mins to go! *help*
