Patty
Hi! My name is Patty aka SUNSPOTPP. I am presently a SAHM to my 4 yr. old grand daughter, Autumn, whom I adopted Dec. 12, 2008. I am 6 hrs (2 classes) away from my Associates Degree as a Drug/Alcohol Counselor, but had a set back in my health and have had to put that on hold for now. I have been PSP'ing for about 7 yrs. PSP is a GREAT stress reliever for me and I try to play as often as I can. Oh yeah, I live in Dublin, TX in the wonderful USA, home of the "Original" Dr Pepper that still uses "Imperial pure cane sugar"! If you want to know anything else, just ask! ♥ Me

PostHeaderIcon I'm Baaaaaaaaack

Hello again my friends Okay, so I have been a bad bad blogger again, well not totally 'cuz the main reason I haven't been here still goes back to my previous post...got a virus/trojan, had to buy not 1, but 2 new PC's (don't ask), attempting to rebuild ALL of my lost PSP stuff, recover from a hysterctomy, and THEN my forum went down! So yeah, things have been a little crazy trying to rebuild and then get my site back up and running!

I can now proudly say that we are back up, running, and having lots of fun!I am still having problems on the homefront with my son, but as I always say, this too shall pass, as long as I...

Sooooooooooooo, please stay tuned and bear with me as I attempt to change my layout and hopefully have a tut or two up before too long .

PostHeaderIcon Recovering from Surgery

Yeah I know, I have been a very bad blogger again :( !


1st of all I bought a new PC and evidentally it was infected when I got it and it wiped out everything off of my External HD...ALL of my PTU scraps, tubes, fonts, receipts, etc.
Being it was infected by trojans and viruses, the 1 yr. warranty didn't cover it so I ended up buying yet ANOTHER new PC.
This time I bought a HP and am absolutely LOVING it!


I then had to kick my 22 yr. old son, Kyle, out and let me tell you...TOUGH LOVE is a biotch!


Then on top of all of this, I have been having severe female problems for years, but FINALLY found an AWESOME Dr. who actually listened to what I said.
After several tests, biopsies, and sonograms, I went in for a LSH on Tuesday and came home Wednesday.
I am still pretty sore & very tired and have been spending most of my time sleeping and/or sitting here briefly still working on re-building my PSP library.


I did do a tag a couple of nights ago, so I think I will write it up and get it posted hopefully before the weekend is up ;)!


I hope everyone is doing well *hugs*!


Peace & Love,
Me

PostHeaderIcon BAD BAD Girl

Okay, so I have been a VERY bad girl...bring on the whips...I'm READY (LOL)!
Time just is NOT on my side right now.

So what's going on with me...
The girls and I went to the coast for what was suppose to be only 4 days and ended up being 9!
How AWESOME it was too, even if the weather didn't cooperate every day.
Every one, especially me, was at total peace!

The girls came down with a viral infection a couple of days before we left and we had to take them to the ER in Corpus Christi, but with viral infections there is nothing you can do but alternate Tylenol & Motrin and keep them as comfortable as possible.
Yeah right...try telling a 2 1/2 and a 2 year old that!
Since getting back home, I, too, have come down with it and feel like total crap plus I am FINALLY back on my meds and trying to readjust to that as well...fun fun!

While there we looked at a few houses 'cuz now that I have been approved for Diability I figure if I can't work then I might as well be somewhere I am happy!
I thought with us going away for a little break that things would be better here on the homefront, but unfortunately it is NOT!
I know you cannot run from your problems, but I can sure distance myself from them, which is another reason for seriously thinking about moving to the coast!
This is STILL a possibility, just not sure when yet!

I have a ton of new scraps and tubes, now I just need to find my mojo...guess I left it at the coast (LOL)!

I hope you are all doing well and I promise to try and be a better blogger!
HUGE hugs & kisses!
Peace Out!

Back to PSP, close that layer and open the last constellation layer.
