Welcome!


YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Back Online!

I'm back online!!

Here's is an update on me.

It's finally over. The whole "lets work it out" thing DIDN'T work out, and quite frankly, I didn't think that when he said that he wanted to work it out that it ment that he was going to start going through my phone, questioning about people that I talk to, and accuse me of sleeping around. On August 22nd, he did this after a happy trip to the cities, all because I wanted to go to JoAnn Fabrics and look around. He thought that I was meeting someone. And then since I wouldn't admit to doing something that I wasn't doing, he told me to pack up and get out. I spent that night at a girl friends house. If that wasn't worse enough, he even went up to the guy that I was "seeing" and even though he said that we were just friends and never saw eitherother out of work (quite impossible, since we work completely opposite shifts - I'm on my way into work, and he's leaving and vise versa) He still didn't believe it. Whatever. He's got a BIG trust issue, and I was just plain sick of it. I don't go out with friend from work, and I don't have friends (except online) outside of work. I've always come right home after work, and have never given any reason to suspect anything. (and he on the otherhand.. well, spends all his time outside the house, is out fishing till 10-11 at night, and has spents a few nights at his uncle's house with his younger cousin and his cousin's girlfriend - I'm not saying that he was doing anything, but well, I'd have more reason to believe that he was with him never being home)

I sold a bunch of my scrapbook stuff to come up with my deposit and first month's rent, and moving day was this past Saturday. My mom and Brother came down from MN to help move the big stuff, and everything I own is in this tiny apartment. I didn't get the one that I had looked at earlier and posted pictures of, this one is smaller, and was $120 a month cheaper too. But it's cozy, and I don't think I'll ever have to worry about being cold.. (it's currently 90 inside! - and it's 11pm at night as I write this!) The only air conditinior is in the bedroom and I have a few fans that I have been running, but I'm trying to keep the bill low to prepare for bigger bills in the winter.

I will post pictures later, but thought that I should let everyone know why I've been away and have not posted.

I'll be posting more! I still have BLOG CANDY to do here soon!

Thanks for letting us know what's going on. I was getting a little concerned when I didn't see any posts. I'm thinking about you.

Carol said...

Ginny said...

Amanda...you are in my prayers right now. I am so glad you are okay and back with people that really think you are special...US!

I was wondering where you were! I was missing your blogs!!
I went through a similar situation many years ago. I'd go out of town to visit my sister and he'd be peaking into my windows to see what my children were doing w/the sitter, or he'd follow me if I went somewhere at night. I'd talk to my girl friends on the phone and he'd question who I was talking to or get home 15 minutes from work and he'd ask me who I'd been sleeping with. I finally told him to GET OUT and "don't let the door hit you in the behind on your way out." Wow - my life was soooo much better without him. I learned a big lesson - I certainly didn't need a man around who questioned every move I made!

Good luck to you and be strong! I bet you will enjoy your time alone and love being by yourself - scrapbooking!!

Good luck to you..it sounds like you are in the right place. Just remember that God never gives you more than you can handle, although sometimes it sure doesn't seem that way. Take care and keep crafting!

So sorry to hear what you have been going through...Just look forward and not backward. Yes it is very hard at times trying to get through but look at what you have managed to accomplish thus far in such a short period of time. You also are a very talented person.

I wish you al the best and a very happy and bright future!

Lana said...

Good luck to you Amanda. It's good to have you back and hopefully your life will be much better for not having someone accusing you of things you're not doing. I've been there myself, and I'd much prefer being alone than with a man like that! Lana
