PostHeaderIcon July Already?

Can you believe it's almost the middle of July already? Where did the first part of the year go? Do you want to scream bring it back like me..well not all of it...just the fun and fabulous parts!  A lot of them I haven't even blogged about..but will as I get back into the groove of balancing out some scrapbooking with the art journaling. I have a tendency to let the art journal projects pull me away from the stories I want to tell about my family, past and present. 

June had me constantly on the road transporting my DD to her first summer job. She does not have a driver's permit as of yet but the exhaustion of running the roads with her this summer guarantees she will have one by next summer. She only worked 4 hours a day but it was a 45 minute round trip drive to get her there and pick her up.  Tomorrow is her last day. She is happy and sad. Happy because she will not have that daily grind and sad she will not be making anymore money. She diligently saved her first two paychecks and purchased a new pet. I am very proud of her. She proved she really wanted him by doing this in addition to all the research she has done before her purchase.

Meet Hercules. He is a Chinese water dragon. She has wanted a bearded dragon for almost 2 years but after seeing that these little fellas were more active she changed her mind. He is approx. 6 months old and from head to tail one foot long. Fully grown he is expected to be 3 feet long.

We also just finished up dog sitting Gertie. She is my DD's long haired miniature daschund. She lived with us for a while and ended up being a permanent fixture at my ex-husband's house. It works well as it gives my DD company while she is visiting her dad. It also works especially well for my three cats. Needless to say they were quite a bit nerved up while Gertie was our house guest. She left to go back home Thursday night. I am giving plenty of kitty treats to absolve myself from guilt for traumatizing them...shhhh!!!! Can't let them know that's why...LOL!!!

About Me

My Photo
Balinda (RebelChick)
Just an everyday girl trying to find my way in the world to live life fiercely and passionately. I was a signature tagger for several years but art journaling has replaced that passion and it feeds my soul creativiely and spiritually. I also homeschool my DD, scrapbook, play around in photography, spoil my cats and drive my hubby insane on a daily basis. My faith in the Lord helps me juggle all these blessings. I keep this blog because it makes me happy. Sometimes I blog a lot and other times it collects a little dust. Thanks for visiting and being my friend.♥
