Hey Gill-Friend... You're Swell!

Surf and Turf

Hey guys! :) I know, I know, long time no see... I am a baaaaaad blogger. :( I love the freedom from schedules that summer brings, but well, I miss them, too! My daughter is a chatterbox, and lemme tell ya, it's not an exaggeration to say that she talks from the moment she pops out of bed in the morning until she finally gives in and goes to sleep at night. LOL I am definitely looking forward to school starting up on the 29th, but I know that I will also be sad that I won't get to spend a lot of time with her once things get going and we have school work thrown into the mix.  Hahahaha, I'm such a contradiction. :P 

How have your summers been? Ours has mostly been good, and it's hard to believe that it's about to come to an end! My hubby has been off of work for the past couple weeks, and duuude, I am so ready for him to go back! LOL, I love him, but I miss my free time. :P He works for Verizon, and unfortunately they're striking right now, which means our income has been reduced to zero until further notice.  That blows, I won't lie. LOL The whole situation is just dumb, and I wish like crazy his union hadn't made the decision to strike.  Verizon is playing hardball (they're cancelling all our health benefits at the end of the month... sure, you can get Cobra coverage, but that's like ohhhhh an extra $2k a month...) to try to get people to break the picket line and return to work, but if you do that, then you'll be harassed and threatened by union people who follow you around, block your vehicle, and shout obscenities at you while you're working.  Long story short it's ugly, and neither Verizon or his union are on my nice list right now. LOL 

Anyhooooooo, enough about that... You don't pop by to hear my crazy ramblings! LOL :) I just wanted to stop in and share a cute little tag I made using the Surf and Turf set from Paper Smooches.  Isn't that fishy adorable?? I love Kim's images, they never cease to make me smile... See ---> :)
