Random stuff bout Me, Chad, Shelby or anything else I feel like talking about

Okay and now to write about what I had intentionally planned to write about in my last post.

So I have a big boo-boo on my little toe. I stubbed my toe and it hurts really bad! I was out for a run the other day when I noticed this burning building. Well no one else was around and I heard these cries coming from inside. There was a child inside! Well I just knew I had to run in and save that poor little child! Luckily I was able to save the child and received no burns in the process. But on the way out a beam fell on my toe!

Okay, so that is not what really happened but it sounds a lot better doesn't it? The truth is I ran in to our bed. Not very glamorous huh? I mean, it is something I have done before and yeah it hurts but the pain goes away. Um no, not the case this time! It started to turn purple and swell up right away. The next day it wasn't any better and the only shoes I could wear were my flip flops. Then this morning the dog ran in front of me and I rammed in to her paw with my injured toe! Sigh!!!

People have said that it is probably broken but it's not like the doc can do anything about it. So I will just ice it, elevate it and take it easy this weekend.

My 100th Post

Well my intention was to write about something else but I just realized that this was my 100th post! So I thought - I have to address that issue first!!

Wow, 100 posts! I hope I have not bored you to tears these last 99 entries!!

This blogging has been so much and what is the best is when people go "Oh yeah, I read that on your blog" or tell me "I really enjoy reading your blog"

So thanks to all of my readers, all 4 of you! :)

Here is to 100 more!

I feel pretty, oh so pretty.

So today I heard the sweetest words out of my daughters mouth. No, not "Yes Mommy, anything you say mommy" but "Mommy you are beautiful".

You know, I know I am pretty decent looking. Sometimes I may even call myself pretty (though pretty is a pretty silly name to be calling myself!) but I don't think I have ever felt more beautiful then when my sweet little girl says those 4 little words. It just made my heart melt!

Right now she is doing her homework. She is doing addition!! It just amazes me! I don't recall doing addition when I was in kindergarten. And I know I was not doing the reading that she is doing. I didn't start reading until first grade. See Jane Run. See Spot Run. See Jane want to strangle Spot because he is being a bad doggie...

Oh sorry, that is another story all together. But that leads me to our pup Harley. She really is a sweetie pie and I just have to keep telling myself that she is a puppy. But I get so frustrated wit her wanting to play tug of war with her leash when she needs to be going potty outside. Or coming downstairs to find a pile of napkins that were on the kitchen table all chewed up on the family room floor along with Shelby's headband and oh there was a pile of poop on the floor too! And this was only like 2 hrs after Chad had been home and had taken her out! UGH!!! Good thing that she hasn't chewed anything of great value yet.

Well that is all for now!

The sun has arrived...and it can stay as long as it wants!

Which I hope is a really long time! Oh sun, glorious sun!! Though I am such a wuss because it wasn't even 70 degrees outside and I was like "Whoa, it is HOT out here!" Found myself lacking any energy and just laid out in the sun.

Though I did talk myself out of putting sunscreen on and now I have some itchy red arms! Though the back of my legs should be fine because my lovely daughter put sunscreen on my legs! I knew she was good for something!

I went to a scrapbook workshop last night with my friend (and upline) Carrie. It was for the (gulp) competition! The lady who's house it was at is a Stampin' Up consultant. But I am not particular (though I do love CTMH more then anything). We made some beautiful cards, one of which I plan to copy and make some more! It was fun!

Well that is all for now!

Hooray, Hooray It's the 1st of May

Okay, so it is actually the 2nd of May - forgive me.

So as you know, or may not know, the first of May is May Day. Not exactly sure what this means, but as far back as I can remember (and that is pretty FAR back since I am just SO old!) May Day was a day when my brother & I would pick flowers, go leave them on our moms doorstep, knock on the door (we were under privileged and did not have a doorbell!) and then run giggling from the front porch before mom opened the door.

Then mom would open the door, gasp in surprise, gush tears and exclaim about what sweet little people must have left the flowers on her porch. And that is just how she reacted last year when we did this! Imagine how she reacted when we were just wee little kids??!!

Anyway, I digress...

So yesterday I go to pick Shelby up from the bus and as we are walking back to the house she asks me to carry her backpack but not to look in it. Well of course that just peaks my curiosity but I was good! We get back to the house and Shelby is still all secretive and not letting me get anywhere near her backpack. A few minutes later I hear the doorbell ring and as I walk towards the door I look at the front window and see this little brown-haired girl running away from the door.

I open the door and hanging on my doorknob is this beautiful bouquet of homemade flowers! And I gasped in surprise, gushed tears and exclaimed about what a sweet little girl must have left those for me!

I'm Bored

It is a beautiful day and I am stuck inside working :( I guess I should be thankful that I can work from home and am not stuck in the office today.

So I think my new Cricut Expressions arrives today! I am SOOOOO excited! For those of you that do not know, the Cricut is a die cutting machine. I have been using my mother in laws for the past few years but there was a great deal on this one (its bigger) so I could not pass it up! I have even re-arranged my scrapbook room and have a spot all ready for it!!

Other then that, not much is going on. Kid is annoying me, dog is annoying me. Nothing new!! I just have to remember that God does not give you more then you can handle so I must be able to handle the kid, dog, etc, etc. But some days I really wonder!

Okay, I guess I should get back to work!
