Day 30 Last day of Daily Blogging...

Day 30 and the last day of the month how did that happen
Only 24 more days of shopping for the Holiday Season but is it really
worth someone's life.. I was horrified by the trajedy over the weekend
for Black Friday..
My Shopping is all done.. So I will enjoy driving around town drinking
coffee and looking at the decorations .. I'm not seeing a whole lot on my
part of town.? Will see. I'm hoping to see the Parade of boats this year but
who knows..Schedule are hectic and things are crazy....
Just some peace and quiet is good for me.
Well thank goodness for scheduling of posting I made it thru
Naplablamo which if it wasn't for scheduling I would have never made it.
Just way overload this month and Next month is not looking any better., but
keeping busy is good.. I have not watch Grey's in two months Just to much to do when I get home...
Never enough hours in the day...
I have to start getting ready for Sedona..Yes if I start now I will then be ready I'll have to start pulling pics etc.. otherwise I won't be ready...
Happy Fall ya all
I hope your Thanksgiving and family friends was good this season.

DAy 19 The older I get

The older I get the faster time flies by. Soon my little one will be another year old. She is no longer young can make her mind up on her own. She still needs mama for many things but she
really is all grown up.
The older I get the worse things sometimes seem to get my life has been in a downhill motion
since Februray I pray ,pray things will get better soon this is crazy that I have a fear of driving
I can't sleep at nite because I see us being hit by a car. I put on brakes when I see someone coming out of a driveway the thing is I'm the passenger so how does that work. The only way I can sleep consecutive now is to take a sleeping pill that does the trick for maybe 4-5 hrs depends on the day. I do not want to be on these medications a person can go broke taking this stuff. I've tried on my own to get off to see how things would be but it makes my condition worse even being on them I'm not 100%. I still have fear each time I get in the car I will be hit. I know accidents are random see psychartrist isn't gonna do anything for the fear.. That has been a suggestion plus I'm not a bank the insurance company expects me to bank roll them.. That's so fair I really want to be able to drive again without being in fear each time I get in the car it's been almost 9 months now since we've been hit and I still have fear the guy is either gonna come after us or something.. Maybe it's the age thing. All I know is I want my driving back my husband thank the lord for him drives me everywhere.. or Debbie drives when we go.. I just wanat that part of my life back maybe that will help with other parts.?
Ramblings over

DAY 18 Thanks Sonia

My friend Sonia well I don't have a picture cause my computer is still dead with most of my pics on them.. I have known her since 1984 We worked together till 2003 that's how we meet We closed up the business and her mom had passed so in 2003. She stayed home for a bit you never really get over something like that.. Her mom was such a gentle soul and could only count on Sonia to help her She drove religiously each Sat or Sun to do her Mom's shopping medication cleaning whatever she needed to do .. She arranged her schedule to take her to the doctors whatever it was she was there. I still think of Jenny all the time & I think she sometimes watches over the both of us. Sonia and I have been thru the good , bad and oh so many drama's together, no matter what no arguing yes difference of opinion but not arguing. She is truly is just like a sister to me. Even though we don't see each other like we use to on a daily basis we keep in touch thru the internet Some days things have been real tough lately and she has done so many amazing things to help me get thru this.. Things I never expected as I am always the one thinking of way to do things for others .. I can't thank her enough for the help she provided thru this move.
Now we are even further apart distance wise but there is the good ol' internet.. I'm gonna get her going on the forum to.. Maybe even making a card or two.. She has a whole room devoted to crafts cause yes she use to be my side kick in scrapbooking but hasn't touched it in years all packed tight in that craft room of hers lol.. It's gonna come out someday. Anyways I just wanted her to know how much I love her and she has been a total savior lately

Monday, November 17, 2008


Today I am hoping that I can sit down and maybe do my card trade it's been since Sept the last time I did anything like this.. I have some pages that need to go in books we only found one that was bent .. Really I think overall I couldn't have been luckier only one jar lid broke and couple bent pieces of paper (which you can still do things with) and one layout that is kinda jumbled. but just that with how fast and everything was done.?
Teresa has to have knee surgery in January but totally will encourage her to do something to like this because there is so many people that need services like that.. My mom lives in Gilbert and someone left a flyer on her door just to help her organize and she feels like a whole new person just from that.
Hopefully I will also get those lonely pages that are uncovered and unprotected in some type of book>?
Well Happy Sunday....
I think we will make a pot of soup this way we have it for a couple days during the week and not so stressful cooking..
Turkey day is around the corner

Wild Fires in California... Scrap Enabler Ok.

Hi Everyone...

Since Debbie doesn't have her blog yet.(but ummm it's being worked on by one of her awesome friends) hehehe... She is ok they did have mandatory evacuation last nite but they did not leave.. It was lifted this a.m. and things are ok for now.. Just pray for those who have not been as fortunate.. We think she'll be ok in the area but younever know about sparks that fly... I know that a couple people have called to inquiry... It's really tragic some of these homes and lives of these poor people.
Just when you think you have it bad you think how worse things could be.
So this is the 411 from the Scrappy Friends so they won't worry as much

Day 16 Debbie's Day

Debbie suppose to come and bring the supervisor to finish up some more yup scrap stuff.. I have no idea where it's gonna go but I am bring a few boxes home each day mostly paper ...
Lol.. good thing Teresa is not here to spank me.. NO BUYING on hold for a very long time.
Debbie will have to be my monitor..
I totally appreciate her driving to come see what she can do...
She is just one of the bestest friends I have.. Thank you so much
I hope I get better soon! at least somewhat they call normal.?
So today hopefully I am gonna finish up some much needed laundry ...
Unpack the rest of the clothes box
Kitchen box
that stuff should be done....
Will see I shall report soon.. It's hard to say since i'm on scheduling mode
I wrote this on Friday so i can't report how much we go done... but I'm sure we must have accompolished something who knows.?

Saturday, November 15, 2008


The Holiday will be here and gone and another year yet started.. The older I get the more time seems to pass me by. I can't beleive that 1/2 of November is already gone. Enjoy your Holidays , good food and cheer. Hopefully things will be somewhat normal by Months end..
I'm hoping to get a card or something done.. To test out the work I for sure have my work cut out for me.. I need to figure out how to use my stuff before I buy anymore.. No more for me.. that is paper , cardstock, flowers, ribbon, brads, buttons, paper... I need only consumables adhesives type things and right now I'm fine on that. If I am getting anything scrappy for xmas it needs to be QK dies, or cricut cartridge or Matts etc.. I do not need any more paper I have no place for any more it's ridculous how much I have. My husband laughed and says we must have had rabbits scrapbooking stuff because it mulitplied from our old place.. Now we have one less bathroom, bedroom hallway , washer dryer space.. So we are mising quite a bit of space..So of course it looks like it multiplied.. lol.

Friday, November 14, 2008


I can't beleive how fast November is really going.. The pups are adjusting to their new quarters and just cute as buttons.. I have not found my camera yet.? soon photos of the boys at the age of 1.. It's been cold so they also have new jackets they are so so cute they don't care for putting them on but once outside they are glad.. Even the cub baby wanted to be picked up he was so cold. They have been snuggling real close at nite.. The apt is really warm no heater needed great insulation that's for sure. We even slept with the door open thats how warm the inside is. We are adjusting and hubby is lost in the kitchen has no clue where a plate, cup , bowl it's hysterical.
He's not even sure where his clothes is.. Why is this..
hmmm must have been all that unpacking he did lol....
Poor guy... he'll figure it all out.

Thursday, November 13, 2008


Well what is gonna be done this week is done.. I have work that is far behind organizing thereYear end and so much to do.. I am totally overwhelmed with it all. So I will work a bit each nite doing something when I get home.. We have a very small tight quarters so it's a challenge to get it all.. but it works.. and comfie and cozy... I like it.. it feels safe and sound and I'll be ok when hubby is out of town. I don't really care for the one washing machine for four units.. lol.. I love the smaller duplex deal.. We tried to look a those .. It will all work out.. I just need to use my scrap stuff so that it can be neat and tidy to much unused things...Well soon I will be back with projects hehehehehehe..I really love the scheduling of things.. that's for sure... This has helped during the move a ton
I have lots of things at work and home and I'm thoroughly exhuasted... Mentally and physically so I need a couple days to just unwind afterwork.. I will work Saturday and Sunday I will work on the I can do.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


I have to say I never want to move that many boxes again I have to make an early New Year's resoulution to use what I have and not replace it.. OMG I can't beleive some of the stuff that I have and it's perfect to use but no I haven't used it.. Not a good thing.. I'm hoping that soon it will be used and I won't need any more storage or closets and those pictures will be in albums I carry not crates.. I can't beleive the pictures I have not scrapped yet... Well that's for another day... Here we are almost half way thru the month.

I love the scheduled blogging thingie new trick for old I haven't had much time.
But want to take take to Thank all of my friends
I have to say I am overwhelmed with the outreach of unexpected help I received. My best friends came to help unexpectedly which was so nice but tears of joy to have them there.
I would still be moving and cleaning if it wasn't for them ...
I don't get to see her to often but it's good to know she is always there..
Teresa drove from Az... to come and let me tell you.. Anyone needing help moving in a organized
quick manner she is the girl..She doesn't sit and made me feel guilty for sitting.. I can't thank her enough for the help she has provide. She is just the bestest of friends you can have ... I seriously would not even be close to being done if it had not been for her.. I owe her big time.
Thanks for all the emails and prayers I have received hope to be on line soon.. regularly normal but I have a busy, busy schedule and will be working a lot so but I do need to find some time for me to do some pages etc.
Another B.F.F.Debbie and the supervisor appeared and directed the scrappy direction so that will be a work in progress of course that's the last to be set up..but for right now i'm just grateful we don't have to drive that drive and that things turn around for us.
It 's been a bit colder here.. Well i should be back live not setting post up.. I think i have them set up thru the 12th.. but will be back after that.

WITH ALL THE RAMBLING TO.. Happy Verterans Day to my Hubby
I want to thank him and all of the Veterans that have given us our Freedom!
All Veterans should have today off from work! (but alas not him ) and of course he doesn't even complain
He was in the Viet nam War ”.
I don't think they get enough recongnition for what they have done for us They should not have to struggle in life as they have defended all of us putting their life on the line for their country and all of us.
I am very proud of my husband for serving the country there is nothing that can ever repay him for his services

I love you Skipper thanks for being my husband.

Day 3 Woo hoo..

Well it's Day 3 I feel like I have no energy these days.
From the time I wake up till I go to bed it seems there is stuff to do.
I'm still packing, looking for a place ,working it just not enough hours in the day to do it all
but hey.. It will get done in time..
Have a Happy Monday all...

Sunday, November 02, 2008

Day 2 who hoo So far so good ahhh..

Well it's Sunday and the 2nd day of the Month and two blog posts already.. Only 25 days more till Thanksgiving.. My mama's birthday is the actual day of Thanksgiving..Which mean Tricia birthday is coming soon.
Of course DD is also in there and counting the days.. She acts like the whole month of November is her birthday. It's hard to believe the time that goes by..
I will probably not lose one ounce of weight this month due to pumpkin pie eating.. darn it.. I just can't resist.. Last year for the first time I tried from Village inn a Candy Cane pie sounds gross buy oh yummilicious it is.. Pumpkin pie is my favorite in my younger days my mom would make me my own because I use to love it so much.. She doesn't bake them anymore easier to buy them lol. If I request she does but I haven't done that and since it's her birthday I won't make her do it this year maybe next.
Working today have the house probably 1/2 packed.. I've been trying to go thru and put donations bags, throw away and pack the stuff I will use I know there will still be things I open saying why did I just have to bring this but at least it will be lighter I have already donated at least 1o trash bags and filled up min of 6 of throw aways.. so that' that much less I will be taking with me.. The part that is scarry is my scrap boxes will probably equal the rest of the stuff we have in the house... but not willing to give those up.


Happy Thanksgiving everyone
Today is My mom 's birthday....
So we will celebrate a bit...
So Happy Birthday Mama

Also Tricia's birthday is today....

Thankfulness Let's name three things you are thankful for.

1.) Family and Friends
2.) Good Health
3.) A roof over my head

So name three things in the response what you are thankful this year.

For November a blogging post a day for the whole month NABLOPOMO

Think I can? I'm not so sure.. but I sure am gonna give it a whirl and you can to go here to
nablopomo. Where all you have to do is blog one a day in the month of November this is the first time I'm doing it.. You have no specific theme or anything... I remember a couple gals doing this last year one being Amie and I'm daring Natalie to try it. (& Teresa)
Anyone that wants to join you have to start today..... So all you bloggers , lurkers, readers, friends.? Come one you can still join even if its' not the first day as a personal challenge
I'm suppose to be working right now... So I will work on uploading some pic the pups will be one very soon and I'm hoping to have them a small little birthday photo shoot..I'm sure they will not be liking the party hats to much, I hope they cooperate otherwise I will have to do it without them. I can't beleive that a year will be soon well we didn't inherit them till Jan 25th when maybe I'll celebrate yet again lol. You can never have to many photos that's for sure.
So keep fingers posted and see if I can do this or at least how many days I can try to do it...
I'm packing up my stuff , trying to get ready for year end some filing, cleaning and all kinds of happy stuff lately.....

Good luck to everyone that does this
