Not feeling so well?

Do you ever start to make a post, especially when you are setting up multiple ones, and you just haven't a clue what to say? Well, thats about how I feel!  I can't think of much of anything to say.  So I guess I will blab about my eventful weekend! Lucky you, I say!

It all started with us going to Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando on Thurs. We went with a big group of friends.  First we get there and we got through the line, then through security. No big deal, but then stupid me with all the confusion forgot my cell phone and camera in the little basket they give you to go through the metal detectors. Can we say PANIC!!  Hello, both of those things are my LIFE!!  Thank goodness I had emptied all the pics from my camera that telling what those people could have seen! haha

We were in the park and headed to a haunted house by the time I realized I didn't have my special items with me. Then I paniced and RAN....I ran fast!  I get to the gate and the lovely lady told me that I had to go to guest services and be escorted to the security site. So I go to guest services. Meanwhile my heart is racing soooooo fast!  Well what do you know...there is a LINE!  So I very IMPATIENTLY waited my turn. In retrospect I  can't believe they didn't call security on me. Had I been on the other side of the counter and saw this crazy woman pacing back and forth, huffing and puffing and looking as distraught as I had to have looked, I would have totally called security. But they didn't. ;-)  Finally I get to the guy and tell him my story and he stares at me like a deer in headlights. I kid you not. I said, ok...look...they told me out there that YOU had to escort me to get my stuff where the metal detectors are.  So then something clicked and he said, Ohhhhh ok. He took me out, let me out and then LEFT! He LEFT! He didn't escort me anywhere!  So I get to security and describe my phone and camera and's still there and I go back to the gate to be let in.

Well, thats what I had hoped!!  I get there, they scan my ticket I explain what happened and they said, "Sorry, ma'am but we can't let you back in." I get angry at this point. Then they asked, "Do you have a drivers license???"  I go...NO, my husband has it and he is in there!"   

Ok so crazy me just realized I was missing stuff and started running. I didn't really tell the rest of the group what I was doing. They had NO IDEA where I was!! 

So the guy called over a manager or whatever she was and told her the story and they sat there and scrutinized my ticket...I explained how guest services let me out and then he left (which apparently they are NOT suppose to do).  These people were totally NOT going to let me back in. They thought I found the ticket and was trying to weazel my way in.  Then out of the corner of my eye I saw the lady who initially told me to go to Guest Services...SAVED!  She vouched for me....and they FINALLY let me back in. Then the fun part, finding my group.  Which didn't take nearly as long as getting back into HHN!

So there ya go. that was my remember...DO NOT forget your items at security!!    We had a blast at HHN. It was so crowded though, we only got to do 5 of the 8 houses. ;-(   The rest of my weekend was full of surprises as well.  Friday was pretty uneventful, we hung out in Orlando, went shopping and ended up staying another night. Then we got up Saturday morning to RAIN. Lots and lots of rain! I wanted to go to another Mall, but didn't feel like messing around in the rain. So we decided to make one stop and drive home.  5.5 hours later, we arrived at home. Doesn't sound so bad, until you know that it's usually a 1hr 45 min drive to Orlando!!  It was the longest trip. The weather was horrible and accidents were everywhere.

We got home, decided to clean out my sons room. Moved some things around. Then on Sunday we got up and went out to buy him a new bedroom set. Arrived back at home and started to clean out his room some more so the furniture could arrive on Tuesday. Walked in and the corner of his room was SOAKED!  Nothing was coming from the ceiling, nothing that we could see from the window.  I had to cancel the furniture and we had to find the solution. A friend of ours came over and helped my husband remedy the situation and as of last night, we are looking good. I HOPE!  Apparently when the ground is too high and you get way too much rain, that water can seep through concrete!!!  So they had to put drains in and bring that ground height down some! Pull up the baseboards and carpet and look behind the drywall to make sure there was no mold. Omg...What a mess we had!

So there you have it. I guess I did have quite a bit to talk about today!! haha  So now that I have thoroughly bored can see my card I made!

This is an Al' A Mode stamp from MFT. I just love her. I probably would have NEVER gotten her until I saw my friend, Wendy, use it and saw just how cute it is!!  I love the little sentiments it comes with.  I did lift the paper pieced idea from Wendy as well. I just didn't want to color the fish! LOL I thought, hrmm...yay, I think I will paper piece that too!   The image is colored with Copics and I believe the papers are My Minds Eye.

I kept the card pretty simple. Probably could have used something else. But it's a stage I am in, I think! lol  I have noticed lately that all of my cards have had less embellishments than normal. Mostly I think because alot of them I am using for classes at the store and I try to keep those simple and concentrate on the coloring end.

Anyways, thats all for today. You all have a great weekend. I have a busy one coming up!

OMG, girlfriend! What a week you've had! I hate when things like that happen. One time I sat my purse down in a store to pick something up and look at it and walked off and left my purse just sitting there on the floor!! Talk about panic! My whole life really WAS in that purse, including my car and house keys! Thank goodness it was still where I left it when I went back to look for it. Love the card! This really is a cute image and the paper you used for the fish is perfect!
