I was supposed to be in San Diego this weekend but ended up canceling because of the fires. Wow. My heart goes out to anyone effected. This is such a horrible thing. As a Scrapbooker, I did watch the news and pick up on many people talking about saving their pets and photo albums. I think our pictures would be our most valuable thing ever. We have had 3 design team members in the area and our prayers go out to them. If you know anyone that has lost everything, please forward my their info so we can send them a rusty Pickle starter kit to start making new memories.
On a more cheerful note, I stayed home and have played with my family. We had a "boring" day, according to my 5 year old Audrey, running errands. But, I did have fun "Rocking out" to Ashley Tisdale. Audrey's favorite person (From High School Musical and #2). However, I wasn't expecting to rock out to this pop music for a few more years. This song isn't so bad. Ok I actually like it. (Audrey is dancing and signing as I type this now).
So the I have to tell you about what's happening by our house. For the past few months they have been building a bridge off to the side of the exit ramp to our house. Seriously, this HUGE Bridge just on the side of the freeway. So this weekend has been the Bridge event. They have special parking and view areas. Wow, too funny. But it is SOOOO COOOOL. Today they "Picked" the new bridge up and rolled it into place. The freeway below will only be closed this weekend. It has been totally cool to watch and as an engineer, I am so intrigued. Here is a link to the news that shows the live "action" and here is a link to a file (45 meg MPG) that illustrates how the whole project will work. or view it here.
