These are the first pictures of me that my mother took to send to my father who was is Korea at the time. I used this sketch from Sketch Inspirations at I have entered it into Sketches in Time Open Challenge at

My Little Artist

So I had a slight headache one day and decided to lay down for a little while. I just laid on my stomach across the bed sideways with my feet hanging off the side of the bed.  I didn't mean to fall asleep but I did and I woke up to my 2 year old granddaughter 'tickling' me. I asked her why she was tickling Granny and she laughed like only a 2 year old can. When I sat up I saw that she had a sharpie with the lid off and that is what she was using to tickle me with!! Next was a nice hot bath with a scrubbie. I have entered this in the Sketchy Thursday 7.28 challenge at

Just Venting....

 A little over a year ago my daughter totaled my car. She and my son, who was also in the car were both fine - not even a bruise. So I needed to find a new used car. I wasn't upset I try not to let 'things' get to me. I am more likely to get mad or react over the actions of people then everyday inconveniences. While I was looking for another car I saw an Eclipse Spyder convertible. I said wow look at this and a friend of mine said that that car was for someone young and single. Another words  not for me. I told him that age was but a number and I could be single faster then he realized. I owned the car in less then an hour. I absolutely love my car. I have always liked smaller cars. I would leave work in the summertime with the top down just enjoying the ride home. A few months after I got it a belt started squealing and it wasn't running so smooth. So I took this car that I have fallen in love with to 3 engine repair shops and 2 transmission shops. None of them found anything wrong. They didn't even find the squealing belt. They all said "Wait until it breaks down and then we will fix it. I wonder if I was treated this way because I was a woman? Well my car finally did break down. That squealing belt was one of 2 timing belts that this car has. It also operates the oil pump. So even though there was oil in the car it wasn't circulating. But now instead of a couple hundred dollars to fix my car it is going to cost about about $1500. I will get my car fixed but I am soooo mad at those shops because I feel if they would have looked a little deeper none of this would have happened
