I really do. I tried another blog a while back and though it wasn't the one for me I have realized I can't live with this one either. It seems that I'm having more and more difficulty trying to post, and don't even get me started on the posting at other blogger blogs. *sigh*

With rant over... some nice things to say... I had a wonderful couple of snow days off. :D LOVED IT! Went back to school today and was home just in time to get out of the freezing rain. Yep! It's now freezing rain over the snow. What a mess outside!

We worked in our bedroom the past couple of days. About this time last year, we decided to re-do our bedroom. I had great gusto at first- painted the room, trim, and doors. Cleaned all the carpets, bought some dressers, and I made some wall hangings. Last Christmas the family got me a new bedspread and it was beautiful. So what was left for me to work on? Well, I needed to repaint the doors and trim because the paint I used and was told was washable, was not. And the new dressers we bought last year didn't match the other furniture. I'm happy to report they now do. And dh and I picked out some curtains for the room which was the finishing touch. I'm thrilled, to say the least, and Yay- its finally finished. :D

Darling daughter and I started and really fun craft too on our snow days. (Thanks Gwen for the idea!) I'll post a pic of our advent cookie sheets when we've put on the finishing touches.

And last I would like to share a lo with you. It's a little wild and crazy, but so am I. ;P

Loving the long weekend!

I did this lo on Thurday and the credits can be found in my galleries. :D

It's the third day I have had off and I'm SO THANKFUL! We had a very nice and cozy Thanksgiving day at home. Friday we got up at 4:30 in the morning and braved the crowds. We did find some treasures for the kids for Christmas. When we got home we cleaned up the yard from the storms... lots of limbs and debris about the yard. We hung Christmas lights and finished decorating the house. I managed to hit a few black Friday digi sales too. Last night dh and I got a pizza and some movies and had a quiet evening in.
Today I'm home alone and have been catching up on some housework while I can. Next week is going to be super busy and I have to work a bunch of over-time so gotta get my hens in a row now to help things run smoothly throughout the week.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

And lets give this another try...

Lets see if blogger will accept the coding today. Here's father and daughter ball pics. :D

And here's that lo I couldn't seem to load earlier in the week.

Credits are in my galleries.

I wish all you my friends a most happy and wonderful holiday! Enjoy!

So lately I've been wondering what it is I'm doing! I took an extra job this year to pay for the trip my son is now not going on this summer. We decided to use that money to buy that new couch I posted about a few weeks ago... but I really wish that the job was just over. I'm contracted to see is through until the middle of June and that just seems like so far away right now. *sigh*

With my normal job, my extra job, and all my other daily duties I just don't feel like I have enough time for me or things I like to do. I'm a homebody and would just like to slow down. And thankfully I'm in luck! I will have a few weeks off of both jobs at chrismastime. Phew! Now just to grin and bear it until then, right?!?!?

Enough with my pity party and on to the things I DO ENJOY... here are a couple more lo's I've done this week. :D Okay I was going to post more than this one but blogger keeps telling me it is having coding issues so, next time perhaps.
Of course credits can be found in my galleries. TFL!

And the Father and Daughter Ball was this weekend. I took some pictures which I'll come back and share on the next post. They had a wonderful time. It was very cool and so speacial!

Alas I must be heading off to work. Thanks for visiting!!!

Darn Blogger!

I had full intent on posting more often but blogger didn't agree. At least its cooperating this afternoon.

Well we've gone from floods to high winds this past week. It made for a good excuse to stay inside and bundled up all weekend. And I have a miserable cold that the kids are starting to get so we didn't really have tons of energy either. I even dug out my cross stitching and got to working on a project.
I completed a few new lo's since the last post. Here's two I'd like to share on my blog.

Credits can be found in my galleries. TFL! :)
This week is SO NICE at work because I am getting off early every day. And next week I only have to work 2 1/2 days and then a 4 day week for the holiday. Yay!!! Now I can play catch up around home with those things I put on the back burner.
We went out shopping the other day and bought darling daughter's dress for the father daughter ball this weekend. Its really pretty and its a little strapless number... she is growing up to fast! I'll post some pics after the weekend. :)
Well I'm totally rambling here so I should be off. Thanks for visiting and happy hump day!

Let's talk birthday

Dear son's birthday party was last weekend. What do you do with 4 teenage boys on a rainy weekend? Well... There was a broken door, a broken fish tank, and a broken tooth. Does that sound entertaining enough? LOL! Okay, the door had been broken and patched up once before and clearly not well. ;) The tooth was loose and when it came out the permenant one was already showing... the elbow just helped it pop out. And the fish tank was only holding a lizard the kids had found outside so it wasn't a huge mess. ;) Of course its been nearly a week now before I dare speak of this on my blog. :P

So here's some pics of planned activities~

The good old 2 liter of coke and a roll of mentos...

Playing the PS2 and PSP-

Back outside for a silly string fight!

Uno stacko anyone? Do I need to tell you I bribe them to play with a rather large bag of candy? ;)

And some ice cream cake...

It was a lot of fun. I can say with the utmost confidence it is also the last time he has a big sleepover. Hehehe. If only I could bottle that energy!

Today I don't have to work... Yay! So I'm hoping to get scrappy after I color my darling daughter's hair and her girlfriends who slept over last night. Wish me luck. ;)

She said He said

So I was able to scrap a bit this evening. I did one simple lo of the kids. :D And of course credits can be found in any of my galleries in the side bar.
The water recided a little today although is still rained quite a bit.
The kids have fought non-stop all afternoon. *sigh*
Did I mention that the father daughter ball is coming up the weekend after next? Yep! Darling daughter and I have been searching for the perfect dress but haven't had much luck. I think we'll be making a drive if we don't find one locally this weekend. She is getting really excited though to go have a special night out with daddy! :D
Well, that's about it for this evening. TTFN!

Rain rain go away

Yes I live in Washington state and we are used to a little rain but now I'm getting WET! I was at work the yesterday and part of the grounds flooded. I had rubber boots so I got to go wading through the water. Today we came back in and the fence at the property line where it was flooding yesterday was at least 3/4 of the way under water this morning. It must be a 4' fence. So there was a little flooding last night to say the least. I wonder what tomorrow will bring?!?!

Yesterday was a long 12 hour day at work. Today I was able to work, run my errands in town and pick up some emergency drinking water (just in case), then come home to relax a bit. I scrapped one lo this evening. :)

Credits can be found in my galleries. This was just last winter and our last trip in our RV before we sold it and bought our boat. Good memories!
I read just before bed every night as it relaxes me and lets my mind idle. Currently I'm reading Julie Garwood's Killjoy. So far its been a pretty good book! And its calling to me... ;) So, I shall say goodnight and go hit the hay! Thanks for visiting!

Oh my time has flown by!

Not only the week but we celebrated dear son's thirteenth birthday too.

He had a sleep over Friday. Yesterday when all the friends left we zipped into town to run an errand I had for work. We also got to do a little Christmas shopping... glad to have that started! On the way home I treated the kids to a DQ pumpkin pie blizzard- Yum! The holiday shopping, christmas wrapping, and pumpkin pie treat all put me in the mood so I came home to scrap this. :D

I also did this one...

While I was scrapping darling daughter worked on some fun crafts which I'll take a picture of when she's done. They were perfect fun little rainy day projects!
Now we are off to church. I hope you all have a super Sunday! I'll try not to be so scarce now that a few big events are over. Thanks for visiting!
