How Do Ya Like Me Now?!

I am very happy to show off this wonderful new look compliments of Ro from Ciaobella Designs. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her if you are wanting a new look for your site!

I know this kind of look is not what those of you who know me expected. I'm sure you were thinking something a little more "dark" or sarcastic but I truly needed something bright and fun this time. As Ro said- it will give me a smile everytime I look at it and it truly does. So just get use to it people! LOL.

Wanna know the best part? Orange is Lil Man's favorite color so I got to have an even bigger smile when he saw this page and exclaimed "Oh Mommy, it's got orange my most favorite color ever"!!. Thank you Ro, not only did you make my day but apparently Lil Man's as well. ;)

Enjoy folks and please feel free to leave comments on what you think of it.

The Excitement Mounts!

Any day now Life With Heathens is going to get a wonderful new facelift thanks to my cyber-friend, Ro, over at Ciao! My Bella! . Also, I see that she's giving away FREE CUSTOM DESIGNS to ten or more people. Her requirements are pretty easy so if you've been looking to beautify your is your chance!!

So back to ME, between Ro and I we found a cute graphic to use and I'm honestly very happy with even just the THOUGHT of having this place look crisp and new! :) We must be patient though because from what I've read and seen, Ro's town was hit by a tornado (it looks like no one was hurt) causing alot of grief with DSL and electricity. Ummmm, I think I can wait because it's definately more important that her and her family is safe.

Thanks to your comments I've also decided to keep the name as Life With Heathens. I was pretty convinced as it was but when my devoutly Christian (and the closest thing to perfect I've ever seen) friend, Kate, told me that even she would miss the LWH name (my MomOfHeathens moniker and potty mouth scared her at first) I knew it had to stay. I may eventually figure out a way to work in the cancer, kids, and crayons thing. We'll see.

Latest cancer news has me at no change which is a very good thing. My calcitonin levels (cancer marker) have not gone up or down and at this point in my life I can fully accept that! lol. It also gives me a chance to focus more on the fibromyalgia and neuropathy problems, Sis' TMJ problems, the fact that my hubby will most likely now need a nose job (his surgery on his deviated septum seems to be a failure), my upcoming hysterectomy, my horrid insomnia (as you can tell by the time this was posted), and trying to find a house to buy.

Oh yeah, did I mention I'm also trying to get ready for the beginning of my second year of homeschooling? *falling over in a faint* CLEAN UP ON AISLE NINE!

Wanna know the really sick thing? I think I would probably go nuts if I didn't have so much going on. Then again, I would probably flippin' SLEEP if I didn't have so much going on. Next stop... Tranquilizer Central! lol

Keep checking back to see if we've unveiled our new pertiness. :)

Been Thinking... New Name?

So I've been wondering lately if I should change the name of this blog. I honestly can't make up my mind so I thought I would do a post and see what other people think.

Leave a comment and let me know if the blog should stay Life With Heathens or if I should change it to Cancer, Kids, and Crayons.

Both are reflections of our life. My little heathens and our daily life as well as having cancer, the kids, and homeschooling (thus the immense use of crayons. LOL). So help a girl out here. What do you think I should do?
