Saturday's Going's On

Good Saturday Morning!

I have a lot to do today. Erik has to go collect his Boy Scout food at 9:30 a.m., Monique has a dr.'s appointment at 9:45 a.m. and Tom is working today. After that I have to go do a haircut sometime. Then Erik has to be back in Morristown for the Pork Chop Supper at the Legion for Boy Scouts. And I have to find time to clean house and get almost all the laundry done today....about 7 loads of it. Ugh....I just wanted to stay home and vegitate around the house today.

At least the girls are in town already, so it's just me and Erik at home this morning. They spent the night at my sister's house last night....they'll be nice and crabby today I'm sure!

And Erik wants to mow 2 lawns mom's and my sister-in-law's. Does that kid ever slow down?? I can't wait until he's old enough to drive...have at it I'll say!

So...I sure hope I can vegitate tomorrow...I need that at least one day on the weekend. Oh and I have to get my stuff ready for NEXT weekend...National Scrapbooking Day! I NEED to scrap!!

Happy Saturday ya'll!!

{Quick note to Torm...Check out Tillie's Blog (at the right) for the Jack Johnson video with Curious George in it! That should be more fun for Brian!}

Happy Hump Day!

Woohoo!! It's Wednesday! Which means it's the last day for my boss to be in the office this week, since he took Thursday and Friday off! It also's the middle of my work week! I so look forward to my weekends and having days off!

I received a package yesterday in the mail. It was from my good friend Qui. A cordless optical mouse. Soooo cool. I'm getting used to it this morning. It's kinda hard to keep that cursor on the screen!! And multitasking on both of my screens, well that's a lil bit tougher. I'll get the hang of it though, by the end of the night! Thanks again Qui!!

I also received some souvenirs from my best friend Cheryl. She made a trip to Phoenix to visit her mom last week and brought back some t-shirts for the kids, a windchime for me, a welcome sign and some potpourri too! Thanks Cheryl!!

I'll post some pictures tonight! Have a great day!!

Happy Monday!

Happy Monday to you! Yep, it's back to work today for me. Another day of listening to my favorite Jailbirds on the phone, typing up Discovery Requests, and just messing around in my spare time. I truly love my job. How many people can actually say that? I work Monday through Friday, 9-5 with my weekends free, and major holidays off. What more can a girl ask for? And I get to listen to the radio all day! You can't go wrong there!

So I'll leave you with that. Have a great Monday and I'll see you soon, no doubt!

Fun Times

Last night we went to New Hope for a BBQ supper with some friends of ours. On the menu were hamburgers, hot dogs and potato salad with a fruit salad for dessert! It was absolutely delicious!! We took the long way up...leaving at 12:30 and arriving at our destination at 2:30. We stayed until 9:30 p.m. and the kids were wiped out. They played Bocce Ball in the yard, basketball and even tossed the baseball around a bit! Here is a picture of all of us.
From left to right: Tommy, Irene, me, Bruce, Monique, Gabryelle, Natalea, and Erik.

Here are some more....

Irene teaching the girls a thing or 2 in the kitchen and Tommy and the kids playing Cribbage.

So I'll leave you with that...Have a Happy Sunday everyone!! Go out and enjoy the sunshine!

My Theme Song

Well I have my theme song up in the form of video now. If you click on the second one, that's the right one. The one I was trying to put up all by it's lonesome. I guess I'll have to settle on this though.

A little history about why I chose this song. The first time I heard it, I knew it was a scrapbooking song and I knew I could relate to it. The first line..."Look at this photograph, everytime I do it makes me laugh" just hit me like a brick. That's exactly how I try to view my photos. And then there's the part about sitting on the bedroom hits home for me.

And I like Nickelback too. Something about Chad's voice...that's so sultry and sexy at the same time. It just draws you in. So please enjoy.

Oh and Happy Saturday!

I see a Tormado went through here! Glad you stopped by for a visit T!

I need to figure out how to put that video up so you can see the whole thing. I think that is my mission for the weekend when I'll have more time. I still have some tweaking to do. I need to figure out how to put up a photo album too. And a few other surprises too. So many things on my list of To Do's!

On another note...I got my May CK today! Lots of good stuff in there too...I can't wait to take it to work tomorrow and read it thoroughly!! AND tomorrow is FRIDAY!! Whoohoo!!

I have to share this with you. It's our bedtime routine. Mine and Monique's.

Mom: "Goodnight Sunshine."
Mo: "Goodnight mommy."
Mom: "Sweet dreams Sunshine."
Mo: "Sweet dreams mommy."
Mom: "I love you Sunshine."
Mo: "I love you mommy."
Mom: "Goodnight Babykins."
Mo: "Mommy, that's not how it goes."
Mom: "Oops, you're right. I messed up."
Mom: "Goodnight Baby Peanut."
Mo: "Goodnight Mommy Peanut."
Mom: "I love you Baby Peanut."
Mo: "I love you Mommy Peanut."
Mom: "Goodnight Babykins."
Mo: "Goodnight Mommykins."
Mom: "I love you Babykins."
Mo: "I love you Mommykins."
So with that...Goodnight and Sweet Dreams!

Blog Wagon

Well, I did it. I took the plunge and got a REAL blog. With REAL features even. I'm excited to share our little corner of the world with you all. I hope that I can have a read-worthy blog. I hope I don't disappoint anyone.

The truth of the matter is, is that I've been blogging. Just not sharing the links. And certainly not keeping up with any of them routinely like I should. I have one at WindowsLive, Myspace, and even ScrapSupply. This one though, this one is serious business. I hope to get my "name" out there in the scrapping world this year. Now that I have a nice camera (my new Mack Daddy), I hope to post more and submit finally.

This post should have been titled "Hopes." Oh well, it's all good.

Feel free to click on the links. There are some amazing blogs, a lot of fun stuff, and definitely some creativity going on there! Oh and no anonymous comments. For obvious reasons.

Here's some pictures that my Mack Daddy captured.
This the Cannon Lake shoreline. It was extremely windy and cold after the lake thawed out. Very cool.

And here's one of the tree at Camp Omega, when I went on my semi-annual scrapbooking retreat...that's the morning dew hanging off of the branches. Also very cool.
