It's Raining, It's Pouring....

For the second day in a row, we are having thunderstorms. It's 11:30 am but right now, it looks like it's 8:00 pm. That's how dark the skies are right now. the tonado sirens went off last night but the tornado was no where near me and wasn't heading in my direction so I stayed here.

My BFF, Robin came over last night and we worked until 12:30 am making things for a tea party she is hosting for the women in her family. We got everything done! It all turned out so pretty.

Today, I am working on some 6 x 6 recipe cards that I MUST get done and mailed by Monday. I think I'm done with swaps for a while. I have too many other things that I want to work on.

Ok, I am getting off of here. the thunder is getting really loud and I have to shut this computer down until the storm passes.

I'm still here....

I haven't checked in for a while but I'm still hanging around. a few new things to tell you too!

I am on Day 11 of quitting smoking!!! It was really tough at first but I think I'm over the hurdle. I've been goinng out to the lake with my BFF, Robin at least 3 days per week and walking at least 3 miles each time. The bad news is that I'm not doing that great with WW. I'm trying to be careful but until I have this smoking thing under my belt, I have been eating a little more than I normally would. I gaine a pound and a half last week and it's not looking good this week. *Sigh*

I am also in the midst of re-organizing my scrap room (again). It seems like I have to do this once a year. LOL! Robin gave me an antique buffet that she picked up for 5.00 at an auction. I'm going to paint it white and distress it. It's going up in my scrap room where it will be PERFECT to hold my paper and all my stamping stuff along with other goodies. I will post before and after pics when I take them. I'm SO excited to get started on doing this.

the weather finally turned the corner and we're having much better weather. I am anxious to get out into the garden again. Not sure what I will plant but I'm sure there will be tomatoes involved!

Oh almost forgot....
I 'may' have a job making some supplies for a photographer! She wants me to make her folders and whatnot to put photographs in for her clients. I made her some samples and she LIOVED them! We are negotiating prices now. Hopefully, I can earn a little crapping money! I'd really like to figure out a way to get a Cricut. Although I must admit, I am a bit intimidated by them.

Well that's my update for now. Time to get ready for work.

Oh and hello to my two followers!

Friday, April 10, 2009


I thought Friday would never get here and worse yet, I thought it would never get over with! This will be the first two day weekend I've had in 3 months. They decided to let us off for the whole weekend because of Easter. Yay!!! I have sooooo much I want/need to get accomplished!

I went shopping after work to get birthday presents for my two adorable grandchildren. I was dreading going out to the mall but I figured I could get most of what I wanted there. I decided to stop in a Target forst to check out the Dollar Spot and see if there was any new goodies there...Nothing! but I decided to look around while I was there and ended up finding everything I wanted to get them! So no trip to the mall was needed! Yay again!! Now I have to find boxes and get things wrapped up and ready to send to Michigan.

Alexa called me on Wednesday and we chatted for quite a while. I really enjoyed getting to catch up with what her and Luke have been doing. I miss them so much it hurts!

Another weigh in this week and still no good news at the scale. I gained 2/10 of a lb. Not sure why either. My leader thinks it could be because I walked over 7 miles this week and could be retaining water. Ugh! I'm trying not to get discouraged but if the numbers don't start going in my favor, I'm not sure how much longer I can hang in there without totally blowing my diet!

I am going to quit smoking this weekend. Cold freakin turkey. I'm crazy, I know. If I can't do it on my own, I will call the doctor and get some Chantix again. I'd really rather do it with out pills though. We'll see. I'll probably end up a raving lunatic by the time this is over with.

I'm going out to Robin's tomorrow night to scrap for a while. I'd rather scrap here but I don't have room for 2 of us to scrap really. That and my scraproom is a total mess. But I really hate packing crap up and hauling it out to her house. I always end up forgettting something. I think I will work on some WW recipe pages for a swap I am in. Maybe a work on a few cards too. I haven't done a layout in months and I have no desire to. I suck.

Ok, I'm off to try and figure out how to add some goodies to my sidebar.
