Good Morning!!

Well, here it is, Thursday already! Yesterday was a fantastic day. It was Jim's birthday. We "celebrated" by getting our "hairs" cut as he says! We needed it so badly but waited till then because Jim got a free cut for his birthday. I think we both feel about 10 pound slighter!!But lucky him. When his hair gets long it goes into big waves and curls. Mine just hangs. Go figure!!!

But, we then went to Carrabbas for a great evening dinner to really celebrate. We had their great chicken Marsala. Umm. So good! Jim had garlic mashed and minestrone soup, I had spicy sausage and lentil soup and tagliarini piccipachiu which is an awesome linguine, garlic and basil pasta. Then what he really goes for is the dessert called Dessert Rosa. It is an extremely moist white cake with pineapple, strawberries and bananas in between the layers and frosted in really great frosting; it may be whipped cream! Oh how he loves it. I don't. Don't like bananas, and always too full to eat dessert anyway! But it was fun. We had a great time!

I started this this morning but it is now 3 in the afternoon and I am just getting time to finish it. Terrible when you have to work.

Anyway, here is what I am going to do. I am going to be posting my LO as I work on it. It takes me a long time, but I don't let it bother me anymore. I have so much fun doing them I don't care if it takes one day or a week, as long as I am having a great time!

So for now, this is all I have:

All I have is the blank 12" x 12" page and these pics.

I may find one or two more to add. I have some idea what I am
going to do but I am open to whatever.

I love how Braisen talks with his face so I think I am leaning in that direction. Why waste words when you can talk with just a look?

This is going to be a fun page. I can't wait to get started.

First I am off to correct the photos just a bit. They are a little dark. Let's see what happens. You
know as much as me at this point.

Will post in a while!

I worked for this one.

I have had some pictures of a restaurant that we go to that I wanted to save for memories. I have worked and worked trying to get this into a LO I felt I liked even a little bit. I finally finished and and am glad to be able to put this one in the can!! I like it, but not a favorite. Love the colors but not the LO. In reality, I think it is the pics, but they are the only ones I had and tried today for better ones but because it is so small you really can't get any really good ones. Oh well. It is done and I am ready to take some pics and move on.

I have been on the computer all day, working on the LO and chatting on Designer Digitals chat. It is their quarterly sale weekend and they have an all day chat with freebies every hour. Being the tight wad I am I was not about to see those freebies go by!! I think I got all but the 8:00 a.m. one and will get the 11:00 a few minutes!! But I can say I am tired and my legs feel swollen. Too much sitting today for sure.

Had a scare today when Nancy had to take Braisen to the ER. He hurt his shoulder playing last night and she thought maybe he had broken it. Thank you Lord it was just what they call I think she said nursemaid shoulder...or something like that. The tendon gets hooked on the bone. One good movement by the doctor and he was better! Kids.

Today has been busy but really didn't do much. I think the same is on for tomorrow. I really don't feel like doing anything yet...still battling this darn cold. Much better, in fact I would say about over it except for the cough. But still so weak. But...a few days should take care of that!

Well, I am about ready to sign off and hit a nice soft chair. This wooden chair certainly has gotten harder through the day!!!

Oh, BTW. A sad day today. One of the best actresses passed away. Bea Arthur. I thought she was such a good actress. I will miss her. I still watch the Golden Girls everyday!!! Wish I could find reruns of her show Maude. I liked it, too. Did you know she also was on All in the Family? I believe she was Archie's sister...some relation like that.

OK. Before I go I will load my LO. Then I am off. Will talk to you all tomorrow.

Much Much Better!

Oh yes indeedy! I feel much better today. Now I have the kind of cold that is just irritating! I am the kind that won't be totally happy till I am totally well. At least I know myself!!

Got all my work caught up after being off work Monday and Tuesday. It wasn't too bad except for today. I finally found ways to get all the guys out of here so I could have some time to myself and get some work done. For some reason today they thought my desk was the proverbial water fountain. They all gathered round to talk about everything. I guess they missed me. Hate to be an awakening to them...I didn't miss them. What a shame, but I have to tell the truth!!! LOL Well, maybe I missed them a teeny bit!

Jim had a bigger route to run today and they ran him all around so I have time to do a little posting. Glad for the bigger route...while the past few weeks were pretty lean we still thank God we both had work.

I have a LO started at home and hope to finish it tonight. I have so much to do in scrapping. I need to organize...if for no other reason than Terry said I will never be organized. Slave driver! I want to do tutorials to learn some things so I don't keep looking like my LO's are from an ad for "Beginners Digi Scrapping" magazine! And I want to scrap scrap. I want to make my AKA card for Designers Digitals but need to wait for my haircut so I look like me. So I guess what I need to do is get busy.

Oh. An AKA stands for Also Known As, and is a like a little LO that lets people know your real name. That way they can put a face and real name with an online name. They are really nice.

I just talked to Jim and he said the thermometers were all pushing 100 today. He loves it. I hate it. Can't say I hate it...I just don't want to work in it!

Well, time to wrap it up here. He is on his way and I can get out of here. It has not been real fun these three days but glad I was well enough to work. Better than sitting home moaning about how bad you feel to the dog and cat!!

Bye for now.

Cold: Phase II

While I still feel like...what shall I say...I guess in print I should just use bad...I think I have entered into Cold: Phase II

Everyone says, "Oh! You're sounding better!!" Well maybe from where they are at but from inside out...I still sound terrible!! LOL

But I am having times of feeling like I want to live so I guess I am on the mend. Thank you Lord!

Tried to scrap yesterday but ditched it about ten last night when it still wasn't going together. So I think I will do some tutorials and see what I can learn. That always gets me going again!!

I am really tired and about time to take meds so I just wanted to jot a line and say Hey!

Just played catch-up at work today. Still not caught up all the way but they didn't leave me too bad a mess. I guess all the complaining helps. It's the constant relentless pressure that works on them. I never give up. Always telling them they better not leave a mess for me whenever I am not there. It's working!!!!

OK. I do have to run. Pill time. Have a great night.

Ugh! I'm Sick!

I am sick. Have a terrible head and chest cold. Not much I can do but let it run it's course.

I was home from work today, and from how I am feeling now it is where I will be tomorrow, too. I know they hate it at work but I have to take care of myself. Because of my MG things hit me harder and take longer to get over, but that is where it is!!

Did sit and scrap today. Thought it didn't take too much energy to move my mouse. It felt good to scrap. Haven't done any thing for weeks due to no mojo and then daughter Nancy and son-in-law Torrey built me a new computer so we had to reload everything.

They did the lion share setting it up (thank you, thank you!!!) but what I had to do took me a long time because I am inept!!! But alas I got it done and it is really wonderful. Thanks you two!!!

As I had said at my last post, I am going to keep these shorter. And considering that I feel crappy this is a good time to start.

Here is my new LO.
