I should not be allowed to vote.....

So my absentee ballot for this upcoming election has just been sitting next to the couch. Today I finally grabbed it and decided that the ideal time to fill it out was on the way to work. Please note that Chad was driving! I was in the passenger seat!!

So I am reading through them and commented a few time on the candidates, who they were, etc. etc. In some cases Chad would say "That is the incumbent" so I was like "Hmm, they seemed to have done a good job these past 4 yrs, let's vote for them!" Then there was the guy who's last name was McKenna. Well that is my nieces name! So I had to vote for him!! I am sure some of you are cringing right now!!

So anyway I filled out the ballot and stuck it in the envelope and stuck it in the mail at work. I felt so proud of myself until I was driving to the grocery store tonight and realized....I forgot to put a stamp on my envelope! Sigh!!!!!!!!!!! I am not sure if the mailroom at work will catch it (and send it back to me) or if the postal service will see that it is an election ballot and ignore the postage issue. If nothing else I hope they send it back to me and I can put on postage and get it back out before the 4th!!

Really, I should not be allowed to vote. When I registered I should have received a rejection notice!!

I should be scrapbooking but I'd rather just veg on the couch and complain and whine and stew over everything that isn't going right in my life.......

I am pooped................

So I went on a scrapbook retreat this weekend. It was a lot of fun! It was at this ladies house that is in Sammamish. She has an upstairs with 3 bedrooms and this huge media/rec room. It has tables, a big screen TV and lots and lots of snacks! Then she serves you 5 meals as well as mochas and lattes per your request! It was HEAVEN!

I worked on one project and completed it. I will have to show pic's at a later date. I also did the invites for a friends baby shower I will be hosting. But man...am I tired! I didn't know that scrapbooking could take that much out of you! I mean it's been a whole day already and I am still exhausted!!

So much is going on right now it seems. And the weather is getting icky! It was hailing today and it gets dark so much earlier now :(

Shelby's birthday is in a few weeks and that all seems to be falling in to place.

Okay, I know this is a really lame post but I just need to sit back on the couch and stare off in to space like a zombie!

Picture it...Woodinville...1994

(What is sad is that my photos from 1994 actually did look like this!)

Not much to say. Just thought I would write a new post. I am actually sitting here racking my brain thinking that there has to be something that has happened since my last post to talk about but my mind is blank!! A clean slate, white as the fallen snow, nobody is home!

I went shopping with my friend Yvonne today. That was fun! And we didn't really buy much! I got a few things that were on sale. And we aren't talking like a few $$ off - I got a jacket that was originally $44 for $19.99 - though they tried to charge me $24.99! And I got a shirt for $8.99 that was originally $30! I mean, could I really pass that up????

I hate colds. I hate colds that linger! Luckily I don't feel like I did last week where I was positive that my head was going to explode into little itty bitty pieces but the cough is there and the nose still gets stuffed up. UGH!!!!

I heard someone say the other day that there are like 78 days left until Christmas. YIKES!! And I have so much other stuff going on - Shelby's birthday and party, I am doing a baby shower for my friend and then I am planning a crop/card workshop. I don't know why I am getting stressed. I mean it's not like I have any thing else going on. I mean I basically get home in the evenings and veg, watch TV and surf the net and emails. This just means that I will have to get some ambition and actually do something in the evenings! I probably should do this anyway because well I am not getting any younger and the fat doesn't just disappear off of my body from sitting on the couch. But if it did....dude I would be SKINNY!!!!

I'd Rather be scrapbooking but instead I will veg on the couch, watch TV and surf the net!

F to the R to the E to the E.....

So Shelby was singing a cute little diddy earlier tonight and I was like "Where have I heard that before?" and I was racking my brain through all of her Disney channel, Noggin shows and nothing. So I asked where that was from and Chad pipes up with "A commercial" Are any of you familiar with the freecredit.com commercials with the catchy tunes? There is one where the guy is riding around on to a bicycle and singing. Man...my kid watches too much television!!!

So nothing really to report. We have all been down with "The Cold". I cannot believe how quickly it came on! I went to work Tuesday and felt totally fine. In the afternoon I started to sneeze. Okay...no biggy. I sneeze all of the time. Well by the time I got home my sinuses were starting to bug me and my nose was running. I had planned to see a movie with my mom (Nights in Rodanthe) and though I wasn't feeling all that great I didn't want to cancel. Well by the time the movie was over my sinuses were about to explode and my mom could notice the difference from the time I had picked her up to the time I dropped her off. I have NO idea how I got home because I felt SO miserable! I thought that once I got in to bed I would be fine but NO!!! Basically I felt like my head was going to explode for the next 24 hours. I stayed home from work TWO days! And even this weekend I noticed that I just lack energy!! Why is it that Shelby has the same thing but she showed no signs of feeling miserable besides having the runny nose and coughing! I mean she was still running around and made it to school all week.....

So, in a month little Miss Shelby will be 6! Ooh, she will turn 6 on the 6th! What is that?? Her golden birthday??? I think I talked her out of the expensive places! One place was $25/person and the other place was like $300! UGH!! So I think I have talked her in to a "makeover" party. I am still kind of rolling the ideas around in my head so we will see what I come up with.

And on that note...I am going to go put on something a little more comfortable (boom chicka boom boom!!) and veg in front of the TV.
