Happy Birthday Bugaboo

In case you didn't know, today is the Bug's birthday. It's hard to believe I have actually put up with her for 44 years. You're getting old sis. And I'm old enough that sticking your tongue out and saying I'm older doesn't bother me one bit, LOL.

This is the same child that dumped out an entire bottle of my perfume (it was a gift from a 1st grade class) on her head. Who would peek out her bedroom window when I was coming home from a date and say "I see you." Who thought you used golf balls to take out the overpopulation of squirrels and tennis balls to keep the human population to a minimum.

So dear sister, HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me, Pan, Bombshell, The Princess, Indy, Scamp, Honey, Ballerina and Nuke.

Color My Tribulations

The Color My Pixel challenge had some very interest colors to work with this month, red, blue, cream, taupe, green and seafoam. And I chose a picture of my dad to showcase in it. Isn't he just the cutest?

Oh, did I mention that I bought a new scanner? I did. Now all I have to do is organize all the pictures around the house, LOL.

Challenging Desktop Tribulations

The desktop challenge at Gotta Pixel this month was to use a font or alpha you haven't used before. And being a day late and a dollar short this entire summer had not changed for this either. The desktop I did would have definitely been better for July and the red, white and blue. Still it is what is up now and probably will stay that way unless I get around to trying the desktop challenge at goDigital.

Just to update though, we are all doing fine. Pan is still working, but traveling a lot more these days and working weekends (as he is doing now. Thank goodness he has an office here at home or I would never be seeing him, LOL). We celebrated our 19th anniversary. The daughter has been working overtime as the girl she was training as manager came down with mono. This means we have had the kids a lot more than we expected.

Pan had already paid for first class tickets and hotel reservations prior to everything happening so we are still headed to Las Vegas at the end of the month.

Tribulations of a Mind Lost

Yep, I have truly lost it. My mind left for LV without me and I won't be joining it for another several weeks. I had totally forgot that I had made a very special card for Pan for our anniversary. Totally.... Forgot....

Anyway, Pan if you are reading here is the card I made especially for you and forgot to print out.
