Been a while...

Ok, I have been way too busy at work. Can't even update my own blog!!! LOL Nothing great happening here. I only had a two day work week so maybe that's why I'm so swamped?!

Can't believe the weekend is here already. I got my Aruba photos back today so I hope to get scrappin either tonight or tomorrow night. Sun. I'm heading to ACM's scrapbooking event to see what they have to offer. And I have to come up with something to buy for 50% off. I've been very bad lately.

Time to go home!!

It's been a while...

I have a nice long weekend and you would have thought I'd have done some fun things. Well....I had a serious sinus headache Sat. morning and all day Sunday. I didn't get any scrapbooking done either. I finished cards for the birthday card swap and then just had to make a few more. I just can't seem to get enough.

I need to buckle down tonight to get the rest of our Disney trip scrapped. I'm not sure what's up for today (holiday). J asked if I wanted to take a ride so I'm not sure where to but I said sure. He's going through some rough stuff right now with family. Speaking of rough, poor mom had a rough time yesterday. It was 6 mos. ago yesterday that D passed away and she had to go to a wake. I've never seen her teary-eyed like that. She's usually a rock! I hope it gets easier for her.

Well, it's time to get myself off the computer, see if the hubster is up and see where he wants to go today. We did get to the Brighton store the other night (he had cabin fever). I got a nice bracelet but it broke yesterday!! So...we do have to make a trip to Burlington to return it. Maybe that's the "ride" he was talking about? We shall see....

Olympics - I'm a bobsledder!!

You Are Bobsledding

You're not a world class athlete, but you are a world class maniac.
Your need for speed could have you blazing past the finish line!

Happy Heart Day!!

Your Candy Heart Says "Get Real"

You're a bit of a cynic when it comes to love.
You don't lose your head, and hardly anyone penetrates your heart.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: is all about the person you're seeing (with no mentions of v-day!)

Your flirting style: honest and even slightly sarcastic

What turns you off: romantic expectations and "greeting card" holidays

Why you're hot: you don't just play hard to get - you are hard to get

What a day! Everyone is bugging me to do something for them. I didn't get a lunch hour since I have no car. J needed it today and tomorrow for dr. appts., so there's no escaping.

I need to find a dr. in this area. I'm having trouble breathing and hope it's just allergies/asthma, and not the weight I've put on.

I had a fun day yesterday with the snow and having everyone home for dinner. We had a bet going for the amount of snow we got. I think G (ds) won with 13 inches. It's so hard to tell with the drifts. I still can't believe NY City got 27 inches!

I'm hoping to get 2 more Disney pgs. done tonight. I got 4 done over the weekend after our company left. I also have to make 10 cards for a swap!!

Well, tonight we are having company after all. How long they stay depends on the weather. They'll go home on Sat. before the snow if it looks bad. If not, they'll stay again. Not sure what mom is going to do. Her flight is supposed to arrive early Sun. a.m. The only problem is that the snow is supposed to hit hard Sat. night and go into Sun. a.m. and Baltimore is supposed to get it as well so they may cancel the flight. We shall could be an interesting weekend!!!

10 things that bug me

Got this from Kathy M and have no idea how to put her blog as a link!!!

1. Cupboard doors/drawers left open.
2. People having long cell phone conversations in a public place.
3. Waiting at the doctor's office for an appt. If I was the one late, it'd be a different story!!
4. Graduate students & faculty treating office staff like we're the idiots, but they're the ones coming to us for help !!
5. People who are chronically late.
6. My 3 boys (dh included) who forget to put down the seat.
7. Someone using the last of the toilet paper, paper towels or napkins and not replacing them.
8. Jo-Ann's & Mikes in my area NOT getting up to date stuff in their stores.
9. Stores not calling another checker when the line is a mile long ( Wal-Mart)
10.Getting home after work to a counter full of recyleables that someone else should have gotten rid of!!

Just another day

Well, I made it through the podiatrist appt. without getting another shot or my foot wrapped again. I'm very happy I can walk around in regular shoes (with heel cups for now) and not have a big fat foot!

I didn't scrap last night but got some Disney stuff organized and ready to go. Maybe tonight. I don't know what it is with me lately but I'm totally addicted to flowers. I can't do a layout without trying to shove a few on the page!! I don't have a big selection yet but I'm getting there. Now if J would just start to work again so I could spend a little easier...... ;-)

I just love Fridays and Saturdays are even better!!! We were supposed to go to the Cape to meet with a realtor tomorrow so we can put the cottage on the market. J met with 3 today instead so we don't have to drive the 2 hrs. down there. I'm only disappointed that I won't get a seafood platter for lunch!!! I miss that great fresh seafood.

No plans for the weekend now. I said no to a Superbowl party. I'm feeling way too fat and uncomfortable. My weight is at an alltime high. :-( I need to do something about that. I wish I could get on the treadmill....maybe after Mon. podiatrist appt. We'll see. I need a serious diet to stick with.

I hope to get some scrapping done. I'm now up to 26 pages for 2006. I'm very happy about that! Actually it's 29 since I did a few 6x6's for a gift album. Well, I'll have to see if I can bring that number up to over 30!!

Nothing new

Ok, nothing new to report today. Went to the chiro last night and my back feels a little better. Foot feels better too. The only problem is that I can't keep it dry in the shower. This morning I put TWO bags on and it still got wet!! I just don't get it. I'm going to look on my lunch hour to see if Walmart sells something that will work.

I didn't get to scrap but instead of putting away scraps of paper from my last layout, I made 4 cards. It was fun! I also went through Joy of Cardmaking, A Second Helping. It was ok but had too many odd shapes for me. I like the standard size so I don't have to mess with making or buying more envelopes!! I'll have to convert the ideas to standard size.

I will try to finish titles on my layouts tonight and scrap some more!
