Happy Everything!

This Christmas season has been and left and quickly.
I will say I finally am feeling settled in again. I no longer wake and wonder where am I? what state?
Ahh travel is over for a time and regular life starts back up Monday/ Tuesday.

Happy New Year!

I want you to know I love you all and wish the very best for all of you in the new year!
Today I have the privilege of being a guest designer over at KinderStamp0's . (just in case link fails)
Hope your ready for some serious Christmas stamping going on!

You also can visit the KinderStampO facebook page.

Thank you Jess and I hope you all enjoy!

After Cyber day

So what did you get for Cyber day?
What I meant was how was your Black Thanksgiving?
Oops perhaps we have lost the holiday?
Yes Virginia we have Lost Thanksgiving to Shopping because we all know its more important to camp out at Best Buy than have dinner with family and friends.

OK So I've lost my love of Black Friday when most places were open Thanksgiving Day.
We slept in for the first time in years then we went to Sears and Sams Cub and El mazatalan.

Thanksgiving was good, We had dinner at a friends house here and it was home made pasta, ham and champagne (I lost count after the third bottle was opened). Just joking.

Christmas shopping is done all but the Dads and small stuff like service people and neighbors ect...
I'm off to hunt down ornament and card ideals. I cant wait until Friday!

Today's topics

blogger blues, I can see the floor, wreath heaven or well you pick, and pictures found.

My blogging has been sporadic at best in part due to the fact that I cant access the blog from the computer downstairs. This means the only computer that is blog friendly is upstairs, in my scrap room, that is not yet set up but I have good news!

I can actually see the floor of my scrap room with my own two eyes! ha! I have some logistical problems with the room.
1. My paper storage ideals aren't working out
2. I need a stamping/ cuttlebug area
3. I don't know where to put my cricut

I submitted and asked to join penintrest but for some reason they don't want me. They have yet to reply or anything... while I write this I'm wondering if my invite was sent to spam hmmmm I must go check

So in Celebration (of our our return to B.G.) I wanted to get a Christmas wreath for the front door. I knew what I wanted but getting it put my inner most die hard shopper skills to a test. Pi…


Well the bad news is my iphone pics wont up load or i cant get them to you pick.
Getting ready for the candy grabbers tonight and now I must find something to fix for dinner. Hmmmmmm
Still don't have the scrap room up and running but it is better than ever. I spent the weekend with the twins they turned THREE. Yes they did and we also had some other things to do like see Karen Rod sister, keep her in her prayers her surgery is tomorrow.

In our travels I had a Peppermint hot chocolate from Mc Donald's and well I'm in love.
So I'm off to make a grocery list and pick up another peppermint treat!

Boo I've tried to post for two days in a row and the computer isn't computing!!!

Dear scrapper girls,

yes this will be in letter form....

Dear Scrapper girls,

You know I'm excited to crop when I show up at Betty's a week early.
That is all. More later. Maybe.

Much Love,

Ps. I have a costume so be ready for some giggles!

as the week turns

As the third week home has began, I'm down to the scrapbook room (three boxes to go)! I believe one final box in the bedroom! I've been recycling boxes like a mad woman. I take them to u-haul and donate them to the share a box pile. Today is grocery shopping. Rather than just go to the store and go wild I've been building up groceries slowly and really trying to do more of the coupon whats on sale thing.

While cleaning out the attic I found lots of papers from school so at some point I'm going to do a school album (one for Rod one for myself). Next year my big thing will be doing our wedding album since Jan 2013 will be our 20th anniversary I want to have it done and ready for that.

ahhh I must go I need to help Rod in the yard. Then to the store then to work in the scrap book room so I will have something to do this weekend!

Loved the shirts Melissa!

more updates

It is sooooooooooooooo good to be back home!!!

most everything is unpacked (except the scrapbook room) and the den needs some furniture re arrangement and a clutter counter top here and there and I'm just about done with boxes.

So Rod has worked one full week at corvette then he got laid off for two....
The first week was a planned thing but the second week happened when a parts plant had a major explosion leaving them with not enough parts to finish the day up. So I guess they are scrambling tyring to get a new part for the car. So he's been really helping out with the un packing and that a great help.

Espically since he shared his germs with me. So I'm almost over my "shared" virus and now we are working on the largest garage sale that we have ever had. It's more easy than ever to throw away however its time consuming. So I'm going to start pricing things today (aka I'll be covered in little price stickers till the end of the week).

I must go attend to t…


Monday is his first day back at Corvette!

its weeeee day

Still no news the Labor Relations Manger said it would be Tuesday - Friday that's the cycle so I'm waiting on the cycle. So as packing goes I'm doing OK I wanted to pack more but someone was very sweet last night and let me sleep (i wanted to take a cat nap and get back up) but a good 7 hours of strait sleep is better than caffeine. Well I've got to go clean the frig and mini freezer so off i go to clean and pack some more. I guess I will be coming to the Halloween thing so I've got to start thinking something up!



Still waiting for a date as soon as I know I'll post. Packing and working away just incase his fist day back is next
Monday. Sunday we reserved a u haul and I think I'm well set with boxes. I've boxed up the better part of the
Kitchen and I'm working on the bedroom closet today as well as changing addresses and canceling services.
Wheeeee this IS fun!

Scrapping is very hard to do on the road I'm missing my lovely desk and my wonder chair. You know the chair you are attached to because it doesn't hurt your back when you are on the computer or scrapbooking. Yeah you know that chair, you love it and maybe it has a name like "old faithful".

So here you go, some treats!
