Wow July is almost half over

I can't believe it. I guess time does fly when you are having fun.

We have been busy the past few weeks. Getting Matt ready if he gets the call to head out west to help with the fires there and I have been getting ready for my jewelry open house that is coming up this week and getting for conference(for my jewelry business).

I took the month of June off my jewelry business to work on finding a new agency to help with my dad's care. I was having major issues with the agency we had and had to find a new one. It was driving me nuts that I had to call when no showed or there was a miss communication on everyone else part but their own. The straw broke the camels back when I had 6 incidents in the course of the weeks. I have since found a new agency and so far so good(knock wood)!

Dad had a cataract removed in the beginning of July and is healing well. He is very excited about having his vision back to normal.

Tyler is going well and is talking more and more each day. He is even starting to make sense. He is loving going to "school" once a week. This week he is staying the whole day so I can prepare for the jewelry open house. I have also been trying to take Tyler fun and educational place during the week. So we have become members of the natural history museum and a local tourist gardens with a really cool children's garden. Today I went and had some portraits taken of him. He did really well! They are a surprise for Matt. I know Matt is going to love them.

I have also come to the conclusion that I have to find Brooklyn (my families/brothers dog) a new home. After living with my brother for almost a year he lost all the discipline and house training he had. I just don't have the time to work with a 8 yr old dog to retrain and discipline. I have tried with some progress over the past year but I just can't take him for the walks he needs while caring for a toddler and a disabled 66 yr old man. So if you know anyone that want a loving golden mix I know a cute one!

After my awesome weekend of scrapping I have done nothing but July ATC for a swap at Scrap Space since. I have been so busy that I have had no desire to create. Plus I started packing up scrapbooking stuff. Once we find Brooklyn a new home I am moving my scrapbooking stuff into the den and Matt is moving to the basement(dog sleeps there now because the cat and him don't get along at night). So I am hoping having a space with everything out and at my finger tips will get in the mood to be creative when the time I have becomes available.

I am going to leave you with this layout I made about Matt playing on some sand box toys. Sometimes that man just makes my laugh so hard.
