ok, i Must be pmsing

I just feel really hurt right now by someone who I thought was my friend. I don't want to go into alot of detail right now, but I just fell very dismayed by someone I thought I knew. Turns out I guess I really didn't know her. :(

ON another note, I did just complete 20 christmas bulbs for a party sunday! They came out so pretty, I will try and get a picture tomorrow. I used the reinker/glitter thing in the clear bulbs. so pretty. Now I gotta do 4 dozen cookies- 4 different kinds, so anyone have any ideas?

Saturday- a day off!

Well, this is my normal weekend to work, but they switched my schedule around a bit to accomdate the holiday.
Kinda glad, it is nice to work only 3 days, and have a couple off, then work 3. Don't want to do it all the time, I enjoy the week on week off to much. :D Especially when you work nights-- it takes a day to recover when your off.

So even thought I was off today, I had to go back to the hospital, because my mom is a patient. Her electrolytes are all off, and it was causeing heart papations, and a rythym called atrial fibrilation. Sigh, It is so worrisome when your parents are getting older, and having health problems. She is doing ok, she may come home monday if they can get her lytes back to normal.

Tomorrow we are going to pull out all the christmas decorations and decorate. I was dreading it, but now I am kinda excited-- maybe this cymbalta is kicking in! :D

I joined the biggest loser challenge at creativexpress. Kind of fun, we all send in 10 bucks, and who ever loses the most percentage of weight by jan. 1st wins the pot. I had went to the Dr. 3 weeks ago, and he upped my thyroid-- I aven't changed my eating habits, but in spite, I have lost 12 pounds! FINALLY! I gained 50 freaken pounds when my thyroid took a dump, and it has been 3 years trying to regulate the meds to catch up. never could get it theraputic, cause they increase it ever so slow. Well, i finally see my real dr., not the PA, or a sub, and he ups it to where it should probaby should be. Now I am finally losing. I feel like I might have an unfair advantage, lol, cause if I TRY to lose along with a working thyroid, then I may lose a ton. :D I don't care about winning, I am just glad some of this weight will come off. :D

Well, haven't really scrapped, so I can't share any creations this month. I am going to bring my cricut to work, and we are going to decorate the door for a door deco contest-- should be fun. I will take a pic when we are done, maybe next week- or the week after.

Getting into the christmas spirt, but haven't shopped yet. Any ideas for a 9 year old boy? Taht don't cost over 100 bucks? Everything Brad wants is expensive-- I need to figure out a limit.

Well, gotta go for now. :d

Bored Bored, Bored.

oi vey, today was so boring. Didn't feel like doing a darn thing! Dh was no help, Mr. Sunshine, who usually is on the go and a go get em, decided today was a good day to veg in front of the TV.

So I thought I would scrap. Well, I did one page, and called it good. Didn't feel like doing any more, even though I had the time-- can you believe it?

Took dh out to dinner tonight for his birthday-- got a nice surprize. It seems the people behind us knew me, and paid for our drinks. They left before I even knew who it was! How thoughtful. I have no clue if it is someone I work with, or what, but that was really sweet of them.-Nothing going on- I have to work wed. night, and thurs night, so dh and ds will go to my parents for dinner, and I will have dinner at work. at least they feed us for free that night. :D

I do need to mail some things off, but other than that- nothing scrappy wise going on.

OH, I did find out that my online friend Jeanne started her own website. It is invite only, and uh, I didn't get one. So I guess I am not as good as friend as I thought. :0. I don't know what the deal is, she is mad about something at scrapbookplayground, but I am still not sure what. Another member said she didn't get some RAK given by another DT member-- not even SBP, and somehow, jeanne got into it? Posted on the board about it. The thing was, is the RAK was sent out, the gal said she didn't get it, and asked the person giving the RAK for not only the RAK, but something extra because she had to wait for the RAK. UM, RAK is just a gift out of kindness--I think it is rude to ask for more. Anyway, said DT member sent out another RAK to the person,l but Jeanne got all upset because people asked why she was even involved. I dunno-- that is what I gathered-- but there are 2 sides to every story.

So anyway, Jeanne started a new board, and is trying to take all the people who frequent SBP to it. pettyiness. I don't get it. SBP and Wendi the owner has always ried to be fair, and very generous with prizes. Lots of people want something for nothing, I guess.

Oh well, I am just rambling now, and I think I will just go to bed. :D

OH Yeouch--Where have I been?

Gosh, I haven't updated in like forever huh?
Probably because I live a boring life, and don't have a whole heck of a lot to say. :D

Well, I finally got my new car-- 2008 Ford Escape. I guess I should go take a picture of it, and do a layout. ;) I still need to sell my PT Cruiser- it is a matter of getting off my butt and putting an ad in the paper.

I got a rise at work! Whhoo hoo, it totals out to be about 3.00 an hour-- hey that will make my truck payment now. :D

I went to the DR. and got myself on Cymbalta. I have taken it for about a week, I really don't notice much difference except I am requiring more sleep. hmmmm, like I have time for that. Really, I need like at least 8 hours a night, and I have even taken a nap inbetween for like an hour. Seriously cutting into my free time.

I go back to work tomorrow for another week on straight. I sure do dread these-- but the week off makes it worth it- especially when you do nights- it takes a full day to recover, so I would rather only revcover once a week instead of more.

My Nephew had a baby a couple of weeks ago. He got to come home from Iraq for 10 days when the baby was born. He is back now, praying that he stays safe. But that means---- BABY PICTURES!!! whoo hoo!! :D OK, I did a couple of layouts, but seriously, my Neice in law is going to have to be on the stick more, and take more pics, lol. Here a are a few I did.

Baby pics are just so much fun! The fancy pants calandar is my favorite, lol.

Well, we have a new addition too-- Holly. She really isa sweet dog, she is already leash trained, and will sit when you tell her. She loves chew toys, and likes to stay close. Brad is so set that this will be "his dog". He is so afraid that the dog will like dh better, lol. (Daisey was definately dh's dog) So he has been feeding her, and playing with her-- alot. She does like to follow him around when he is home, otherwise she sticks close to me. here is a layout I did- this was on a visit to the pound before we were able to take her home.

Well, day before yesterday I spent the better part of the day organizing my layouts into albums. I have not done this since 2004!!!! can you believe it? I had stacks all over the place, in the closet, in 3 ring binders, blah blah blah. So I got them all in albums except for 3. I have to go to hobby lobby now and get some post extenders so I can get those together before they end up all over, lol. Maybe I should go do that now-- that and get the licence plate for my car. gotta get moving!
