OOPS! Guess I'm not just a little bit behind...

...but a LOT behind - LOL!

Been a little (O.K., A LOT) busy on the home front trying to deal with things that have come up in recent past.

THRILLED to say that choices have been made and they are good choices, sound choices.

Also thrilled to say that while we have been dealing with all of this stuff, I have started hitting the gym again and today FINALLY broke through the 180 lb. mark - WOOT!!!! Onward and upward...or is that downward - LOL! Gotta keep it going! I tell you that one goal reached is SUCH a great motivation! Scott is SO proud of me too...he's been great at supporting me in all of this. Love that man of mine!

Not sure if there will be any LO's in the next few days as I plan a short trip out of town, but I will be coming back strong after I return!

Thanks for stopping by!

Daily Something...

Made this for all of you today! Well...O.K. I actually made it for me - LOL! And DH...and the kids!

Pics from Halloween last year. All digital element designed by the lovely and talented Katie Pertiet over at Designer Digitals where about 95% of my digital elements come from...LOVE the stuff I can get at Double D!

So, the kids have almost a full week of "Back to School" under their belts and (I think) are happy to be least there haven't been any complaints yet - LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tried to create yesterday...

...but wasn't in the right frame of mind. So for a daily something today, you get a piece of a story...a memory...because after all, it's my blog and I can do whatever the heck I want - MWAHAHAHAHAHA!

We had gone to the mall (can't remember for what) and he said he had to get something and he would meet up with me in a few minutes...and off he went. On the way back home, he asked if I wanted to come over to his place to wash the car. Sure, no problem...

After the car was clean, he asked me to look in the glove box for the tire gauge. The glove box was locked (odd) so I asked him for the key. I opened the glove box and there was a little brown box in there...not sure if I was supposed to see it or not I hesitated, only briefly, before asking, "Ummm...there's a little brown box in here?" He played dumb and asked "What little brown box", till I finally took the little brown box out and said, "THIS brown box!" "OH! THAT brown box", he said...UGH! Freaking genius...I asked him what was in the brown box and he told me to open it and see.

And there, at that VERY moment, for the first time EVER in my whole entire life...I was should probably write it down in your calendar...the date was July 7th, 1989

Daily Something...

This is YESTERDAY's Daily Something...

I don't like taking pics of cards, etc in artificial light, so my solution was to wait till this morning.

This is just a simple set I created, although it won't likely be given as a set...I just had paper handy that matched and used a "recipe" from one of my Paper Crafts magazines.

The close up of the one card (Birthdays are the Best) will be given to Jonathan's and Colin's godmother who has a birthday coming up tomorrow.

Now...I have to go play Laundry Goddess (yes, even Divine Goddesses sometimes get demoted - LOL!) before I can create something today...I have something special in mind for someone EXTRA special, so I may not be able to share it with you, because I want it to be a surprise and I know he sometimes reads my blog. Guess that means I may have to create TWO somethings every day in order to work on my special project and still have something to share with you everyday!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gone Stampin'!

The kids and I are heading over to my girlfriend Crystal's house to hang out for a bit. She's looking after her grandson, so the boys will have a BLAST! Lauren will get some stamping done with us. It will be a lovely distraction from the FREEZING weather that is preventing us from going outside.

So, the Daily Something will likely be a card, but you'll have to wait till later to see it!

Catch ya later!

Daily Something...

Here is my daily something for January 2nd.

The boys are LOVING the PS3 that Santa brought us for Christmas...I, however, can't wait till they go back to school so I don't have to listen to Star Wars Lego music 'round the clock - LOL!

Today, is also my Dad's birthday. He's celebrating the "something" anniversary of his 39th birthday - LOL! He does this every year...there is NO growing old for him! And, while he doesn't read my blog (not fascinating enough I guess!), I'd like to wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

Thanks for popping in!!!

Daily Something...

Ali Edwards wrote in her blog (a little while ago) that we should try to create something everyday. At least I think that's what her post was about. On the day she created that post, she created a digi brush (for "stamping" on digi layouts) and I LOVE to use it...though I haven't used it much in the past. That may change...

My New Year's resolution this year is to create something every day. So...let's hope this layout is the start of something that I'll get to do every day. It may not always be a digi layout, but I'm hoping it will be SOMETHING!

So...this is what I created today. Pic taken today too! Love that man of mine!

Happy New Year!

Wishing each and everyone of you the best of the best that this new year has to offer!

One of my resolutions is to create SOMETHING every hopefully there will be lots of good stuff to inspire you in the days to come.

Thanks for popping in!
