do you chew?

So when was the last time you chewed a piece of gum? Has it been a while or has it been a life long habit? Are you addicted to the bubble or the chew? It's all about flavor for myself, I have a favorite brand and that I enjoy on occasion so yes I do chew gum. Like this past Friday, it was a gum chewing day. I was going out to eat (yes Clipe takes me out to eat frequently) and I had had tuna earlier in the day so for the sake of the journey I popped in a stick to eradicate the dreaded tuna breath. Everything was typical about my gum chewing experience except the end part. It tasted good, the flavor lasted all that (and yes I'm really talking about gum chewing for those of you thinking other wise). We had chose to go to Ryan's, it's a good place to eat when your not on weight watchers. We arrived there and did all the usual things like stand in line, get a table, get some sweet tea, ask for roll and maybe just maybe I may end up swallowing my gum.

Now I don't know about any of you but it's been quite a time since I've swallowed gum, in fact it's been so long I cant tell you how long it's been. The last person to swallow their gum (that I know of) was my niece Alica we were taking a tour and they did not permit gum so she swallowed it...... getting back on track here I'm sure it's been a good long while since my digestive track has been graced with the presents of the chewy substance. I had went up to the "food bar" to get my well food and no body I mean nobody was in line. So I saunter over to get a piece of salmon and I'm thinking I still have gum in my mouth! What am I going to do with it? So I push it over to the side (of my mouth) so I can concentrate on getting food not the peppermint fresh taste in my mouth when it happens..... I was bumped and just like that the gum was gone.

I'd like to think I was bumped accidental but after several bumps at the Ryan's buffet line one never knows. I was bumped so hard I had to take a deep breath of air (and gum). Oh man you know that icky feeling of swallowing gum it just does not go away soon. In fact while writing this I can still feel the icky slide of the gum. Life is full of gum swallowing experiences, (it was fun when we were kids) but now that I've put a few years on it's not as fun as it once was. It's apparent that old age has taken the thrill out things like gum chewing and they have been replaced with new thrills, like the pop of a champagne cork or the sound of sweet tea pouring in a glass, you expect good things to follow. Your never ready for the gum gulp and the only thing to ease the experience is knowing that you've done it before and survived. Yep grown up life is all about how to avoid the gum gulps and knowing when not to swallow but when to spit.

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…
