Well last night i was able to go see Rascal Flatts perform. They actually came to the Columbus Civic Center and i jumped on that opp. Rascal Flatts is one of my favorite bands. They are actually in my top 5. My goal is to see all of my top 5 artists in concert ... i am only down to one and my list will be complete. Darius Rucker opened up for them. The concert was good but for how much we had to pay i was expecting a bigger show but i was disappointed. I would definitely go see them again. Our seats were pretty good. We were in the nose bleed section but the Civic Center is not that big so no matter where you sit you will always have a good seat. (I'm having issues with uploading my pics so those are coming soon :)

As i was getting ready to go out and see a friend of mine play i get a phone call from my mom ...
"heidi ... was is the number that's on Bopo's tag?"
"umm ... my number ..."
"okay ... well if you get a phone call from someone saying they have Bopo, let me know"
As you've probably guessed ... Bopo got out of the house and no one could find her. To make a long story short ... Bopo got hit by a car and broke her leg. off to the animal er we go ... they pissed me off. Hello!!! My dog got hit by a car ... is bleeding ... and looks like there is a bone hanging out.
Why did you wait 15 mins before you decided to register my dog???
Why is there only one vet?
Where is your technician so that they can go ahead and take my dog to xrays???
Why is the dog's condition next door more critical than my dog's???
Where is the vet???
Where is your technician???
HELLOOOOO WHY ARE WE NOT BEING TREATED?!?!?!
I had to tell my mom that i had to leave or it would have gotten really ugly. I have heard horror stories about the ER that we went to and boy to see it first hand was scary. All i kept thinking was what if my dog has internal bleeding? Why are they taking so long? This place does not know how to multi task. My mom did not leave that place til 130 ... almost 4 hrs after we got there. Wow ... i don't think they know how to determine what is critical or not.
So the diagnosis ... yep she definitely broke her leg and will need to have surgery so that it will heal right.
Today that's what we did and it's going to cost us $1200 :c/ All i know is that is one lucky dog. Things could have been worse and i'm glad that it's not. Hopefully Bopo has learned from this will realize how dangerous the street can be and will stay inside. Oh and where did we find her ... the whole time after she got hit she managed to get back in the house and hang out in the living room. I hope that i never have to go through anything like that with Snowflake ... she's like to frolic in the street too :c/

Here are the rules if you would like to join in on the fun :)
Complete 101 predetermine tasks within 1001 days.
Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of effort on your part)

I need to get my creative mojo back. It's been gone a little too long. I recently moved and at my last apartment my craft room was pretty much my storage room. Everything went in there and never really came out. when i moved into my new apartment i didn't want the same thing to happen and well my craft room is looking like a hot mess. By the end of the challenge i am hoping to have my craft room up and running. I want to start creating things so craft room and 21 days of being creative is one goal. Since this is more a craft related goal i will probably post my progress on my craft blog which you can see here It needs some more attention.
My second goal is more to help with my photography. I am going to try to take pictures each day during the challenge to let you all get a glimpse into my world. It can be exciting for some of y'all lol Since i want to share this it is going to require me to be better at blogging. I need to get in the habit of taking pictures of every day things and not wait until the events in my life happen. You can't get better at taking pictures if you are not behind the camera.
So there you go ... my two goals. Hopefully i will be better and not fail before even really starting. I will start working on this tomorrow ... come on back and see how i'm doing :)

I'm really motivated today because i am going to start the 21 Challenge. You can find it at here It's a really cool concept and i'm really excited to try to break an old habit or start a good habit. The hard part for me is to think of a habit. For us creative types we should also try to incorporate this into a scrapbook page or into a journal/notebook. I'm going to work on that too and will post what i create here.
So here is what i am thinking as my goals. I'm have an issue with drinking a lot of coke ... i don't think i can completely cut them out so i'm limiting myself to two cokes a day. I think i can do it! I'm also going to try to be creative and create something each day ... i'm also going to throw in blogging for 21 days straight too. That's going to be a little hard but hey goals should be a little challenging :)
Well i have to close now ... the juice in the laptop is dying so i want to make sure i get this up and running before it totally dies on me. Hopefully this will inspire you to take on the 21 day challenge and if it does ... holla at me!
