Look how close I was to Mexico yesterday!!! That's the boarder fence. The fence was at least 20 feet high, and on our side, there was a massive electric fence to boot. Major security. No one's getting past that puppy :) It's the closest to a foreign county I've ever been :)
Jacob had an Orchestra Solo Contest yesterday. His bus left from his school at 11am. The family followed at about 12:30, getting to the school at about 1pm. He was supposed to play sometime between 1 and 2, but we'd left the paper with the room number in the truck, so for the next 30 minutes, we wandered around, trying to find out where he was playing.
It was a MADHOUSE! There were hundreds of teachers and students and instruments ALL over the school. And it was a BIG school. Every classroom, auditorium, gymnasium, and cafeteria was being used. Goodness! My little kids just followed in tow with eyes wide open.
We finally found a place that the students were listed, which told us who the judge was. WAY across the school, there was a poster that told us there the judges' rooms were. We treked it over there, and found out where Jacob was. Captain America peeked his head into the room where Jacob was supposed to be, and we'd missed him playing by 20 seconds. Darn!
So, we turned around, and headed back home. While I was sad tht I didn't get to see Jacob play, I know that it counted as something to him that we tried. I could see it in his face that he was pleased that we were there. He later told me that it meant a lot to him that we tried to come and watch him play. OK, so the day wasn't a total bust :)
And we DID get to be close to a foreign county. THAT was pretty cool. We got home around 2, and Jacob got home around 4. He'd won a metal!!! He was SO excited. He said that all of the kids in his orchestra did fabulous, and brough home good score. Way to go, Jacob!!!
And, if you wanna hear my kid play the cello, click here. It's only 46 seconds.
Also yesterday, my photoshop was possessed for about 2 hours. Really. It wasn't fun at all. It decided that it coudln't write PNG files. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? I use PNG files (and make them) every day. And it decides it doesn't know what I'm talking about. I was almost to tears.
I un-installed and re-installed photoshop, but it still didn't work. 2 hours later, I open the file I'm working on, and drag and drop each layer into a new document, and viola, it works again. I went on to make 2 new WordArt packs after that. Weirdest thing I've ever seen. What was up with that??? I'm going with 'possessed'.
I'm kinda liking doing the "faithbooking" WordArts for Sunday. Puts me in the right mood/mind set for the Sabbath :) This request came from Teresa...um... I'm embarrassed to say it, but from back in October. Girl, sorry about the wait :) Um, unless I've already made this WordArt, and this is a repeat, which is always a possibility - LMBO! Anyway, here it is. Hope you all like it. It's made with a new Alpha I worked on last night. If you look closely, it's an Iron Alpha. Kinda fun :) I MAY be giving it away as a freebee one of these days in the not to far away future :)
