I found this on the smack blog

New Diet Program
A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10-lb weight loss program.

The next day, there's a knock on the door, and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19-year-old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck.
She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss Company.The sign reads, 'If you can catch me, you can have me.
'Without a second thought, he takes off after her.
A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up.
The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens.
On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs as promised.

He calls the company and orders their 5-day, 20-pound program.
The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life.
She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads,…

ds

Well I finally bit the bullet and quit using the trial version of ds. I registered and it. It is awesome! Had I known how great it is I would have installed it on the computer a while back. I'm glad I didn't because of the crash, but this program is unlike any I have ever worked with. It is easy to navigate around in and the prompts are pretty simple. Wow is all I can say over and over and it seems to me that I have saved a bunch of time both in looking for what I need and in cutting time, because you do it all at once. I still have a beef with the company about the two down loads and I am intending on writing a letter about that. Who knows if it would help I have an ideal it won't. Now if we could just get them to come out with a cricut magazine. If I ever had the money to start a business up that would a be a great magazine one totally devoted to our cricuts. Of course if I were to own that company I would be spend all my money on an editor : )

When I get some projects …

is it morning ?

I have a huge head ache this morning so this will be short.
It's hard to believe but one week from today some of us will be packing (yeah right I'll have it done before the weekends up) and some of us will be leaving for retreat. In one week and one day I will be submitting myself to scrapbookingbilss. I'm ready for the break and I'm also happy that I'll have a span of time to relax and have fun. And yes I'm have started packing scrapbook things and trying to decide what to take and not to take. So far here is my list

my huge ott light
my cc carts
xyron machine
cuttlebug
flowers and ribbon
my quick cuts

I have not got around to paper, I always leave it until last it is always a debate. As are the projects I'm going to take with me.

I do have a question what trimmer are you going to take with you?
and what are you going to wear? Jeans or sweat pants?

OK So apparently no so bright Angie was looking for chelle's b-day in the July archives. Just one hitch her birthday is in August. So I confused and mh b-day with mt b-day. (It would have helped if I would have just paid attention).
Sorry about that

it looks cold but pretty at the same time

I survived

Well I have survived the Inquisition. yes I was nervous and yes I shook like a leaf. I have never done well speaking in public when it's important.
Have I ever told my debate team story?
I don't think I have so I will drivel on a bit just like the weather.
I believe it was 1989 maybe 88. I was a freshman in high school Bush Sr was the president and I fervently listened to Casey Casum's (sp?) top forty every Sunday after church. I had a teacher his name was Mr Cumberlander (no joke that was his name). In the high school world I was very little fish, I was very little quiet fish most had known all there lives. I had never had to speak in front of my class mates before ,when all the sudden came the debate unit. Now Mr C he was tuff on some stuff but not on everything he was a football coach so he also helped out with girls basketball in the winter. Nobody messed with Mr c he was big and ethnic in an African American way and for all that tuff coach stuff I found the soft spot. No…

deposition day

Today we go to the deposition. Ugh I'm so not looking forward to this. It should be quick I don't have anything to tell. I had a horrible nightmare early this morning. I'm hoping it was from all the stress. It left me feeling like a child. I seem to be in market of stress of late I'm ready for my life to slow down. I need a vacation from my life!
OK now that I'm done with my venting I have nothing much else to say other than my scrap room is clean! I now have my mama bug in my room! I think this is going to be so nice not to run into the dining room every time I want to use her. On the other hand my family room is a mess I took everything out of the room then put it back in. I'll take pictures as soon as it's done. So I'm off to clean up my messes and finish putting everything in it's new place.

its monday again

yes I have had a good weekend
Rod and I have been alone for the past 2 days. We have been movie watch-in freaks it's been fun. I also have embarked on a cleaning project. My spare bedroom has been running a muck with all things scrappy and so it was time to clean so I can get organized for retreat. It was not as bad as I thought at least it was not as much cleaning as I thought. So as for today I'm going to clean and cook and maybe charity knit and make a book inventory (it was lost in the crash).
I was loving yesterdays great temps it left me longing to go sit on the back porch in my swing a read a good book. I'm also ready to open a window and let the fresh air push out the old and crusty. I'm done with the cold after all we have had hardly any rewards with it. No snow, no cold I say, so I'm ready for the sunshine and warm air but no drought please, and no temps over 100.

her house on my street

valentines day 08

He has done it again
Just when I'm ready to strangle him he goes and does something right.
I woke up to a dozen roses on the kitchen table this mornining, and that's not all.
To top out the morning he had a card and gift to go with the roses.
the day before yesterday he was on the very last nerve that I have left.
And now he goes and is ............really good.

I have never demanded roses for the V-d I like a card and dinner but don't ask much, sometimes you cant get flowers, some times the wait a restaurant is to long or sometimes you get turned away at Red Lobster and they tell you we are full for the night.(and yes that really happened so if you want fish go very early)
Flowers are sometimes to expensive, and by expensive I mean if they are over 25 bucks they are not worth it, (I'd rather have a cricut cartridge at that point) and very hard to get at times, so I don't expect them every year. It was a very nice surprise.

In other news if you didn't know you will know…

Q What are the Feb and March crop dates?

Ok I'm up

I'm glad to report that I did get more than 2 hours of sleep last night. The bad news is I did not get enough just like the rest of us, I may need a nap this morning out of pure self preservation.
I have wanted to put out my Valentines decoration on the front door (for a week now) but we keep having these winds, I'm afraid it will blow away. It's a big red heart my fil made me out of ply-wood some years ago. I sanded and painted it(back in the day)and have used it every year since he made it for me. I also have a bow up love monkey that I sit on the front porch usually a day or two before. I'll try to get a picture of that on the blog. Can you tell it's a slow blog morning I'm talking about a Love Monkey? I'm off to finish up a few cards and I'll post them later more of the V-day cards.

cards v-day

I'm tired

Well I ended up going to bed around 2 am and leaving the tv on in the bedroom sleeping with one eye open. Clipie got up at four and started to turn off the tv and I'm telling him no no not yet. So about 6 am I got some good sleep for about two hrs. And yes I'm running on empty and would not be falling asleep if it weren't for my morning allergy sneeze a thon and my sweet tea.
I have been working on some v-day cards for the past couple of days. (I'll post them here in a bit.

Let me tell you a small funny. My cricuts are not on surge protectors and last night I was going to unplug both of them when Clipe tried to stop me in the hall for a love toll, I pushed him out of the way. He started laughing and I said my bugs they must be unplugged! And he mubling something about me and my attachment to the bugs. but I did get them unpluged.
I'll get these cards posted here in a few.

Since I'm up and un nerved at the tornatic activity in the area (they are saying right now that they may call in the national guard for parts of ky not here but close)I might as well blog and scrapbook. Earlier in the night I was sweating bullets cause it was so hot in the house and so I turned on the air it was 74 in the house ugh. This crazy weather has got to go.
It's starting to pour rain and thunder and lightning so I guess I had better get off the computer.Pumpkin is leaping up into my lap and scared that's unusual for her so time to go comfort my

night

"In the middle of the night"
Last night I did stay up to see the qvc scrapbook sell-a thon. they had two hours of new stuff it was OK I did like the 9 inch xyron and in fact I had stayed up to see the presentation because I was thinking my scrap room needed a new xyron machine. It was about 12:35 I had ten minutes left before the presentation when I suddenly noticed a strange noise. At first I'm thinking my sis is talking in her sleep.My mom does this at night, she has always been very talkie and frequently yells and screams in her sleep, so I was naturally thinking, sis did this. But no it was not the family yelling in her sleep bit. Then I I'm going on to next thought in which I'll skip over immediately and no that was not it. It got a bit louder and about 3 seconds before the presentation of the all new all wonderful green xyron machine. I had to get Clipie cause it was getting pretty bad. Now you all do know the cow story and in my little mind I was wonderin…

I now am returning to you from house land

Well yes it's been a while and yes my spell check on the blogger is not working at all so it is with great pains that I attempt to spell check this and make it some sort of legible English blog post.
I'll just give you a quick run down of the week
every day we went house hunting
every day we ate out
I have not washed a dish all week (that I remember, probably did but it has been very few)
We have seen so many homes at this point I'm just about house blind
And no they have not found anything
Sis is going to go back home tonight or early in the morning
and I'm going to get back to my regular schedule.
Which includes all things blogy and scrappy naturally
did I mention we got subpoena(s)?
it's long and not complicated and we have no ideal why they did, We don't have anything to do with the case. And yes I'm pissed about it Clipe will miss a day of work.That will teach me to answer the door at dinner time.
Also I'll be adding and e-mail "thingies" that if y…
