About Me

My Photo
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 New Layout

One down and one to go!
My last post I said I would be changing the layout and then hopefully writing a tut or two, well here is the new layout FINALLY thanks to MandaK of Double Vision!
Isn't it just AWESOME *jumps up & down*?
WooFrickinHoo, thank you again MandaK *hugs*!
I have been looking and looking for a new one and every time I thought I found one I like then I couldn't come up with a decent header to go with it *blushes*!
Thank goodness I ran across MandaK & Double Vision 'cuz now what you see is what you get *lol*!
I have been down with the bug for the past several days and as soon as I can hold my head up for any period of time I will get my Rac Zodiac tut written up *winks*!

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 .
Peace & Love

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,
