Moving day in 3 days!

Moving day is coming up! I just love how this photo turned out after I edited it. I used CS3, and used a plugin called Virtual Photographer.

I used the Anvil setting under the black and white tabs, and tweaked it a bit. Cool, huh? Looks stormy and ominous.

Negative to Positive

So I've been feeling like a Debbie-downer lately. When I promised myself I would be more positive. Look on the bright side of things. So I'll present you with a few negatives in my life and tell you how I will try to look at them :)

1. Our new house is surrounded by ones still in construction. We won't sleep in for months!
Positive: My day won't be wasted by me sleeping. more time with those monkey's I call children that scream at the top of their lungs all day. YAY!

2. In front of our new house is a Port-a-potty.
Positive: If our toilet gets clogged... that'll be nice and convenient!

3. The kids voices are so loud, screechy and echo in the house.
Positive: I can still hear :)

4. I was the drive-thru teller at the Credit Union on Friday. Some woman called me stupid.
Positive: I can count, and she can't. ;)

5. The grocery store here doesn't carry Chocolate Peanut Butter ice cream.
Positive: my butt and thighs aren't 2 sizes too big because of it.

6. The Marine Corps moved our Move-in date 3 times!
Positive: We could be moving in the rain if they didn't move it the 3rd time!

7. Hubby plays video games all weekend.
Positive: Hubby isn't at Hooters all weekend.

8. My best friend lives 3000 miles away.
Positive: hmmm....... I'll get back to you on that one :(

Just a few things. I'm sure there's more.

Rarely will you see me behind the camera. Here I am. 6 inches less hair. Oy, I hate being on the other side of the lens.

No laughing now. ;)
